    With the onslaught of the Books, Music, TV, & Movies forum, I thought I would move my story from the blogs, to an area where it mights get more reads, and thoughts.

    This story is currently in part: 7

    Previous installments are in the spoiler. If you have read the others, then disregard the spoiler! <img src="style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/smile.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":)" border="0" alt="smile.gif" />

    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    I went over several equations for bullet trajectories for a weapon I was developing, when my mind wandered (as a typical
    teenager's mind often does). It went from a virtual piece of paper, to a black screen. It looked old, maybe 90's tech. I decided
    to try and type something: "Hey is anyone listening?"

    I heard a whirring noise, then some type popped onto the screen: "Who are you, and how did you contact us?"

    I thought to myself, "What is this a virtual place in my mind?", but the type came out as: "My name is Silva, and
    I don't know how I contacted you, but here I am... And you are?"

    There was more whirring, and then there was a beep, and more type: "Hmmm, Silva you say? Well then, you
    are who we have been looking for."

    I had heard this before, and I typed: "I am not interested in anything you have to offer!" I cut the link abruptly, and
    wondered how I linked up to a computer somewhere. Then another thought caught a hold of me: "What was I
    thinking about?" I had little time to think as the auto pilot dinged: "Destination almost reached!" I came out of my
    trance, and the first thing I saw was two fighter jets screaming towards me at Mach 5. I saw a spurt of smoke
    trail from the back of one of its missile tubes. I reacted the millisecond I saw the smoke. I typed into the computer:
    "Evasive action required, NOW!" Since I created this program I no longer needed to be the sole pilot of my head. Now
    that I had given the order to evade, I popped my blade and flew straight at the hawk destroyer, and as it approached,
    I dodged it, and neatly dismembered the warhead from the missile. When I turned towards the fighters, they were tucking
    tail at Mach 7 back to where ever they took off from. I thought to myself: "I am too tough for them, thats why they are running."
    But as I turned to go to Steamboat I knew that there was a more sinister reason.

    next: part 8. <img src="style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/smile.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":)" border="0" alt="smile.gif" />
