Chapter 9 Flying in my sleep
The dancers swayed and danced to the bellow of a thousand emus. The noise was tremendous. Each bird whooped and scratched its powerful toes on the cold granite in unison. Louder and louder. Oberon began to spin and the birds formed a circle around the young girl. Then silence. Oberon fell to the ground and each bird knelt, bowing its head with a chilling reverence. Charlie stepped forward and the emus split the circle to let him through to his daughter. The suffocating darkness lay upon her like the body of a dead friend. Charlie picked her up and stood tall gazing skyward. After what seemed an eternity, Corey began to hear a dull hum. Like a train approaching from a great distance. A series of lights flashed from the western horizon and an undefined light appeared above the mountain slowly decending upon them.
Leisa grabbed Corey by the hand just as they were flattened by an enormous sonic boom. Darkeness fell upon the mountain.
Corey and Leisa awoke in a large dimly lit featureless room. The room, like the inside of a large aircraft hanger was a dull metalic colour and there was a strange odour that reminded Corey of concrete dust. The air was cold and stale. They were each suspended in a kind of hammock. Corey touched the fine web like filaments that formed his cocoon. It was silky and slightly sticky but with incredible strength and elasticity. He turned his body towards Leisa half expecting to see a giant spider consuming its meal. “Are you OK Leis?” he said, finding it difficult to speak at first in the dry air. “Where the hell are we Corey?” she responded. “Dunno. But the last thing I remember was that terrible noise and Charlie picking up Oberon from the rock. And the light above us.” “I'm sick and tired of being abducted without my wardrobe. You should really learn to choose a better set of friends, Corey. Ones that wear clothes and I can understand. Where's Charlie and Oberon?” she asked as she tried to free herself from the hammock. “I haven't the slightest clue Leis, but first I think we should get out of this bind”. It took a bit of effort but soon Corey had freed himself. Now just to get down. Without any real stability it was difficult to leap the six foot drop to the floor. Oh well, he thought to himself. “Here goes nothing”.
Corey hit the floor with a poorly executed thud and then walked over to help Leisa down from the intricate weave of web. Once down, they walked over to nearest wall and tracked the perimeter of the room attempting to find a way out. The wall was completely featureless – no doors or windows and appeared to be made of a strange material that looked like polished aluminium. He placed his hand upon it and it was icy cold. “Now what?” Leisa protested, feeling the cold and becoming increasingly frustrated by their prediciment. “I guess we just have to wait and see what happens.” They walked back to the centre of the room below the hammocks and sat down on the floor. For the next few hours the two talked like they had never talked before. Leisa talked about her sweetheart Jimmie and how he never wanted to leave the farm. “At least you take me places Corey.” she said, holding his hand. “You got that right. I'd just love to know where the fuck we are now.” Without warning a bright arc of light on the ceiling illuminated the room. It was a bright sterile light that was much too bright to see exactly where it was coming from. Startled, they both stood up and looked around the room. In the corner there was something dark on the floor. “What the hell is that?” Leisa said. Her voice trembling from the combination of cold and fear. “It wasn't there before, we would have noticed it.” They walked over towards the object. Corey reached down and picked it up. “Another bloody coat. Two of them.” Leisa looked frightened as Corey unfolded the neatly piled
coats. “I guess it's our ticket out of here”. He said. “Lets put them on together.” Leisa insisted. Corey handed a coat to Leisa. “OK. On the count of three. One. Two. Three.....” Song Lyrics Flying in my sleep Feel the wind and taste the breeze flying through the needles eye wheeling by degrees earth beneath a soul to keep Am I only dreaming this flying in my sleep? Now I see the world through the eyes of eagle feathers are unfurled above a land so dark and evil freedom cant be earned if you keep your feet right on the ground a lesson to be learned not to keep so terra bound Sitar solo
Now I see the world through the eyes of eagle feathers are unfurled above a land so dark and evil freedom cant be earned if you keep your feet right on the ground a lesson to be learned not to keep so terra bound Take the lead from what you see a talon sharpened fear is dulled till it bleeds above the trees where freedom speaks through the clouds by mountain peaks Am I only flying in my sleep?
