Chapter The Bridge
by Ariadne Gallardo Figueroa
“Each one of you is part of a link, the connection that you will not be able to understand but which is there unites you. The distance does not matter, the time does not matter, neither does space» The Master».
At that time within the precinct of Dean Pérez Riv, the highest rank of the eight mystical leaders invoked their roots; voices unknown to some of those present were heard with energy and invaded the room with their echoes:
– Jokainen teistä on osa linkkiä
<Each of you is part of a link>
(Finnish language the oldest root of the Zila family)
–τη σύνδεση που δεν θα καταλάβουν
<unites you by the connection that you will not be able to understand>
(Greek language the ancestral root of Petra and Sofia)
– tetepozmecayotoma acan tetlanehui
<Trigger, something very similar to another cannot be differentiated>
(Ana’s Nahuatl origins)
– Die Entfernung ist unwichtig
<no matter the distance>
(the Germanic origins of Gala)
– زمان مهم نیست
<It does not matter time>
(Ancestral origins of Ramagel, which belonged to the Persian voices)
– နေရာ မရှိ
(the oldest root of the Burmese family of Jade)
– Судьба не написана
<Fate is not written>
(the Russian voice whose root followed Ariedré)
None of those present were aware of the territorial scope of those voices, whose time and space had been lost in the wide universe, and has been returned with the force of a wave of energy to the place where they celebrated the disseminating ritual.
Out of nowhere, a gaseous formation appears that attacks them, head-on, but before impacting it disappears faced the astonished gaze of the group of Eggyans
Meanwhile in the corridor Barderian:
Captain Algyen monitors with a magnetic probe the path and momentum of the meteor shower whose impulse is unlikely to slow down and detect with high precision.
In the flotilla, they are aware of the magnetic forces and waves of dark matter that can divert the course of the rocks, or of the Vector Egg III itself. Out of nowhere, a gaseous formation appears that attacks them, head-on, but before impacting it disappears faced the astonished gaze of the group of Eggyans that formes the crew.
Algyen has no answer to understand what is happening and exclaims:
— Ingerin Barderian!
But he does not receive any response, he only feels the impulse from below the ship, without being able to control it, they are pushed up in a matter of seconds; they all drop to the ground from the Vector Egg-III countering the blow to their heads.
In moments they observe a rock of enormous dimensions that have made other smaller ones surround it in a gravitational dance with the destructive power of everything in its path.
Algyen watches his crew with despondency, gasping for breath and fear in every part of his being. They are now aware of what they are facing, but they have also realized that they are not alone.
Vidra takes the captain by the shoulder and whispers:
— «Has Barderian formed an army?»
The captain looks at her with bewilderment:
– Only in this way could we understand such a peculiar experience.
What happens in Ana’s compound, to what extent her strength has achieved the unthinkable, is it like this or otherwise? We do not know yet.
the Master’s quote corresponds to the first novel of Hechizo de Ave in the post «Taking the reins of the future on your own terms»
