Push the button: Long
The force field lifted or opened either way my I could go forward safely. The children slipped in behind me.
Every one stopped and looked at me expectantly, there was a long silence .I did not know what to do so I waited. Finally after a few minutes, that felt like eons a young man approached me.
He had been at the back of the hanger and apparently started to walk up to meet me as I had entered. The hanger was so long it had take him all that time to get to me.
The next thing I know he is hugging me and welcoming me like an old friend. Then the whole hanger broke into a loud Hoorah! I was at a lost and not a little embarrassed by the whole situation.
“At last”he said “You are here we have been wait for you for a very long time.”I had no idea who they thought I was, hell I was not even sure who I was either.
This young man told me his name was John Long and he was commander of this transport Space Battle Station. Omg I thought they are rambling on about things of which I have no comprehension. I asked John who he thought I was he said he did not think and that he knew exactly who I was . Taking my hand he lead me to an anti room come office and indicated that I should sit at his desk.
John looked me straight in the eyes and said.” After the war started two hundred years ago “…..”Hang on” I said ” what war ?”. John silenced me with a wave of his hand and told me to listen, as we did not have much time and and the video message I was about to watch was rather long but it would explain everything . “Put this on ” he said handing me what looked like a pair of sunglasses!
I looked at him he smiled and touched my hand , “Go on” he said”Put them on and push the button! “

To be continued
Female, wife, full time mother and Grandmother. I am not as happy go lucky as I used to be but I am still bubbling along on simmer! I have three handsome sons all grown and flown.The youngest married with a beautiful wife and two sons of his own. Eleven years ago I was working, running a home, driving and socializing then bang in a split second all that was gone. I had an accident at home. I broke my back, not for the first time, I had broken it 10 years previously as well. Unfortunately this time I had broken it really badly and it was truly messed up so I had to have two operations. I was told before each operation that the outcome could mean I spend the rest of my life in a wheelchair. Still as some guy once wrote "I am still standing " yes "better than I ever was " not quite but with the help of a walking stick and as long as I do not stand or sit in one position for too long, I am still standing! Update I no longer use the walking stick . I had lots of friends before the accident but when things like this happen, you loose most of them. Their lives move on and mine stood still and so they left me behind ...I know that is just the way life is but it hurt and always will. Then I looked around and saw those who were still there for me, these friends are the roses in my garden they need to be tended well. They are the diamonds in the dust, I will of been married 50yrs plus this year . Pain and boredom are my enemies now, I have to find different ways to approach life, use my pain befriend it almost...yer right , well that is what they tell me at the pain clinic ROFLMAO ...... if only I could! I have found an outlet for my fears, frustrations and night terrors . I have started writing poetry if that name can be applied to my writing. I hope I do not come over as a moaning winger. I hope I am past all that. I also hope that you might see how the poetry is moving from very dark through the grey and
hopefully in to light ??
I need to update this a little here. I have worked very hard over the years since my accident, I go to the gym regularly, I have a Pilates class and a core class once a week . The guys at the gym and my Pilates teacher cajoled, teased, bullied and encouraged me to abandon my walking stick! :) My back is no longer straight it is C shaped because of the injury and I have lost two and a half inches in height but my Pilates and Core teachers have helped me to stand up as straight and as strongly as possible. Pain and depression are still hanging on my arm but I have weapons to use against them and if I say so myself I cope well.
I have made lots of new friends, real diamonds. I am also very grateful for all the support and help I have encountered here on Wordpress. Hugs and welcome to everyone who visits.

WHO is she? This is curious-er and curious-er. ❤ ❤
I have no idea who she is?? Don’t you know?
She keeps turning her face…
I know. She keeps following her nose–forward–forward, to the next button. I think she has a button fetish. 😀 😀
Dear Me! Do you think do ? What can we do?
Someone’s telling her what’s going on, right? I’m all ears. 😀
We will have to wait and see😉
That guy started to tell her…
Yes and now we have to find out what is in the message😉 xxxx
BTW, I’m not here, okay. Ssh.
