It's A Reset
It was about 10 to 10AM when doctor Zolan, Alana stepped out of the Uber in front of the D.C. office and headquarters of the Carlinden Group. Her text instructions said to go the top floor, get off the elevator, and the receptionist would instruct her from that point on.
The elevator took Alana directly to what looked to be a rather elderly woman behind a desk on the top floor. Ah!, the woman snapped while slightly sitting up to look over the top of the desk at Alana, you're wearing the very same outfit you wore to the hearing. Stunned, Alana just as quickly replied, Look lady, I'm living out of my suitcase. I don't even feel all that comfortable going back to the hotel to get it. The elderly receptionist said to Alana, you better change and take a shower or something, I wouldn't want to be the person sitting on the plane right next to you this evening. I'll be just fine thank you, said Alana and continued with a puzzled look on her face, how in the hell do you know about my flight? Never mind, said Alana, can I see the person in charge, you know, my appointment? The elderly receptionist pointed to the two large doors behind her, You don't go through those doors until 10AM sharp. You've got a few minutes left, she added.
At 10AM the receptionist knocked on the top of her desk, getting Alana's attention, the elderly woman gestured to the doors behind her using her thumb and nodded her head as one of the two large doors opened. Alana got up and as she passed behind the receptionist, the elderly lady said, make sure you shut the door behind you. Alan just rolled her eyes but, did as the woman asked and shut the door as soon as she entered the room. In another twist, the only person in the room was a child.
I can't believe this, exclaimed Alana, and I was going to ask you where you got that receptionist. I always thought of her as a 'people' person. The child said to Alana, emphasizing the word people.
What's going on here? Alana demanded while trying to watch her language around the child. Where is the person that is / was to meet with me here at 10AM? I apologize, said the child, I chose to present myself to you in this form because it was this child who saved your species from almost total inhalation. OK, I'm done here, Alana said furiously, I knew I was being played by this company from the beginning and I came here to prove it. I guess I really didn't need much more proof than this, did I? Alana asked. Alana opened the large door she entered the room from to leave, only to find herself right back in the same room with the child.
Alana stunned, slowly looked back to see through the door she just walked out of, and in that room sat the child. Alana slowly turned her head back to see where exactly she was, only to discover, that she was in the very same room with the child. Obviously Alana, said the child, we can't let you leave just yet, we have some business to discuss, you and I.
Alana, completely confused said out loud to herself, I think I'm still asleep. You know Alana, the child said. you aren't the first on this planet we've made contact with? Alana looked back again through the door at the child who was shaking her head at Alana. Unfortunately, the child continued, we have to go through this process every time with you people. The child went on. Most of you people are so conditioned, that you people can't believe anything outside your simple understandings, which is part of the reason why we are here in the first place.
The child, running out of patience said to Alana, Please sit doctor, the child pointing to a chair at the conference table, it's rude to be talking to yourself while I'm trying to have a conversation with you. Alana sat at the conference table, looked the child dead in the eye and said, Don't you think it's just a little hard to believe that this is nothing more than a dream, when I'm being forced to talk to a child? You are right about one thing, said the child, the child you see is simply a projection in your mind, but the room you're in, is a simple expression of both time and space, I will meet you in person so we can get on with business, but I warn you, it will not be pleasant for you.
The room filled with white blinding light. Alana had to cover her eyes, and the noise that filled the room was so loud Alana had to go from covering her eyes with her arm to using both hands to cover her ears. It was all too intense and Alana's skin was starting to get hot as if she was out in the desert on a 130F day. Alana screamed, Enough! Enough!
The noise, the light and the heat had stopped, the doctor and the little girl were once again in the conference room. Alana quickly realized she had gotten what looked like a real bad sunburn from the ordeal. So, let me ask you something doctor, said the child, do you normally get a burn on your skin when you sleep? What is it you want with me? And do you have to keep showing yourself as a child in my head? Asked Alana.

Listen to me Alana, the child said, you are going to have a great responsibility to the people on this planet in the near future. You have been chosen by the council I sit on, concerning this matter. We have chosen people just like yourself, all over the world, who are fighting a system you all know is not serving the best interest of your people. The child continued. Your dedication to doing the right thing in the face of ridicule, your job, personal safety will prove to be invaluable to your people. On this planet, the child said, people such as yourself are the exception, and not the rule.
Alana, confused and staring at the child, continued to listen. A difficult decision was made concerning the people on this planet by members affiliated with the council I sit at. The initial decision was to leave your planet in a state which would result in the death of over 90 percent of humans. However, after our intelligence survey was comlpleted, it was realized that the magnitude of death we would unfortunately create on this planet, would not be acceptable, and a second plan to deal with this planet was finally agreed on. The child continued, right now we have total control of this planet, and we are positioning people such as yourself to deal with the fallout to your people the execution of our decision will have on this planet.
So what you want, interrupted Alana, is people like me to help you invade my planet? I'll never help you with that, assured Alana. What's about to happen, the child replied, is not an invasion, it's a reset. This reset will happen, and your people will need you and the others to prevent your species from a total cataclysm.
