61.1[102]

LyonsPride reached the actual Quadtowers, linked as they were by enclosed bridgeways, and after some trouble it was she who opened up a heavily locked set of large armoured doors. The odd past, of the Quadtowers, was that none knew their true reason for being created considering odd machinery that had been found there by those desperately seeking shelter after Warday. Only a few of the machines had been proven to be useful but those living in the towers had neither the resources or need to touch the others that were heavily secured against interference.

As Sarah, and Rhonda, Lyons moved through the partly emptied BetaTower it was becoming horribly clear that the whole towers had been created as part of an advanced teleportation transportation networksystem. Much had been made to vanish including people and livestock but to where?

Then they found the still living rejects who had been deemed somehow not to be worthy to be sent; the very young, the sick, the very old and some who had not been chosen for no obvious reason. The same went for livestock and other resources were mostly left behind with very valuable, and valuable, items being chosen. It was a huge blow to the settlement as all those taken, human or otherwise, were healthy fit adulthood.

Sarah was drawn to a hidden control chamber and chamber with 13 teleport cubicles being one large, three medium and nine small but even the 'small' were quite big. So it was, with the RainbowsessMiniorb hidden in her forehead, that she was able to discover where everybody, everything, had been taken and it was a shock. For it was to what might be called an alternative earth or history.

The teleportation netsystem was more than just that and Sarah wondered if other people, livestock, resources etc had been stolen away and just what was that other 'Earth' like that they had to do so for she had a sense of urgency about what was being done. Rhonda voiced another concern in wondering what that incident had to do with others like it. They also vowed that some kind of rescue mission would go to that other world.

The rainbow light flashed through the whole settlement but this time it was mingled with white light in such an amazing way that while both formed a separate experience they continued to be discerned as separate.

The stolen lifeforms were returned, there were new resources, a dome covered the settlement and there had been other important changes especially to all those there.

62.1[103]

The Celesticouncil had a large meeting during a linkdream session that took seconds in 'real reality' but much longer in 'very vivid dreamlike reality'. Those there now all had RainbowsessMinispheres. There was Mother Compassionate Teresana Wellbeing of the Orderhood that had come eastward with the Brotherhood of Steel. There was PrimeElder Owen Lyons of the DCBS. There was President Sallie Lowliss of the DCSL. At first they discussed matters pertaining to the new CelsticouncilDC itself being an offshoot of the Celesticouncil. It was about security issues, the forming of a charter, a possible blueprint for an enlarged council.

They rested and then started on other issues.

Owen Lyons spoke. "The rainbow light, and white light, events appear to be part of a greater struggle way beyond the direct influence of we mere mortals."

The WayWanderer, also known as the MysteryStranger, was abruptly sitting with them. "Not just mere mortals, now that I am here. The struggle is not a two way affair but a three way affair between over order, balancing and utter chaotic forces that other factions are attempting to take advantage of. The GreatOsoEnemy has sent the SecretOsoEnemy to this poor Wasteworld for just that reason. To make matters more complicated-subtle there is the Rainbowsessbaby caught at the center of this foolish struggle along with her RainbowsessArtifacts. She 'mislaid' some of them, as any child might, and others were stolen from her by an entity that she trusted, perhaps foolishly. Now she has regained all of her RainbowsessOrbs perhaps with the help of the Rainbowsess. Yet she seeks now some of her RainbowsessToys. The RainbowsessMakerit is to her a toy but to mortals can be dangerous to attempt to use. The shelterfolk, who call themselves Subwayers, had the artefact but when the WayWalker went there it was gone. While the Subwayers gained somewhat from the use of the RainbowsessMakerit they have also suffered causing them to become isolated, even paranoid, from the rest of the world."
