Continuation by Alex:
Sarah was astonished as the doors opened. You could feel the cold air coming out of the library. It was a strange feeling.
“Let’s go” said Alex. “Time is… well, I’ll not speak about money anymore.”
Sarah quickly followed him. Meanwhile she kept looking at some of the artifacts that were in the library.
“Shall I give you a tour?” asked Jeremy.
“Of what?” asked Sarah.
“Of our library.”
“But, aren’t there supposed to be just books in a library?” Sarah was pretty curious.
“Why of course not, libraries are made for everything that is old and, useless to most of us.” Jeremy replied.
“So this is a museum?” Sarah was impressed.
“A what?” Jeremy was looking ort of funny at her.
“Never mind, it’s a custom that we have on Earth.”
As they were passing by one of the sections, Sarah stopped.
“What is it”, asked Jeremy.
“What are these”, asked Sarah as she was looking at some disks that seemed to be very old, but looked quite familiar, they were almost like the disk she had.
“These?”, Jeremy started, “these are some of the old crystal disks, that we used for vector space travel.”. Jeremy stopped for a couple of seconds and looked at them, almost admiring their apparent antiquity and then proceeded. “These. Obsolete, that’s what they are. Who uses those any more?”
“I do.” Said Sarah quietly.
“What?” Jeremy looked like he’d seen a ghost.
Sarah took the disk out of her pocket.
“Here it is. This is what got me here. Hey hold on.” Sarah looked scared. “How come I have this if I put it in the computer?”
Jeremy took the disk, looked at it and was intrigued.
“So, you didn’t come here through some… Well… I thought you…” Then he stopped for a while, recollecting his thoughts.
“Well have to go to the Leader.” Jeremy looked almost severe.
Sarah did not know what to expect. All she knew was that she wanted answers, but Jeremy interrupted her.
“First, let me show you what accomplishments are yet to come on Earth, probably, you never know what things people can invent.”
Sarah looked around. OK, this was going to be a nice intellectual round, she could deal with that.

what accomplishments are yet to come on Earth? Hmmm… I think I need help in this department 🙂 utilizing water and hydrogen as fuel, any others apart from this?

2. A - Your Story - June 19, 2006

erm, try engeeneered fire to release oxigen and consume CO2.
try the tenth wonder of the world and the last one, just think up of the other two: The Planetarry Bridge, build like the orbit of the Earth and more.
Just try the discovery of H-rays, no, leave that up to me.
If nothing else comes up, stall.
By the way, I’m working on a new book, and I think you will want to fill that in also. At least i hope you have time for that also.

What genre is the new one? I think if you had a blogroll or managed to get one and comment on a few blogs like what I did, the people will come to yours out of curiousity and comment on an article 🙂

erm, yes, still waiting…

5. Loki - June 22, 2006

Thanks for waiting, writer’s block was beginning to set in 😦

“The accomplishments to come for the future of Earth includes engineered fire used to release oxygen and consume CO2, the planetary bridge which in theory is possible despite the drain of the Earth’s resources and the time needed and further advances for the Human Genome Project and the prevention of Transhumanism which will prevent the future human race from annihilating themselves due to extreme modifications.” It was apparent that Jeremy knew a lot about humanity’s future accomplishments despite having not been to Earth. Maybe these beings are stating that they could travel through time to see us in the future, if they wanted… That would be pretty scary, not to mention weird. The holographic displays were the only dim sources of light in the room, everything else was lit with candles.
“And how do you know all of this?” Sarah tried to check the time, but even the wristwatch ceased to work in this place. Or maybe time was nonexistant here.
“These are just possibilities, even though the first phase of the Human Genome Project is already underway on Earth.” Sarah turned around to notice that Jeremy bowed low to a figure in front of him, partially hidden in the darkness. The figure was taller and older than Jeremy, wearing robes of purple, the color associated with emperors and people of royalty. Sarah didn’t know what to do, she felt very, very awkward, just standing there motionless.
“Uh, really? I thought that maybe you guys could–”
“Forgive me, Your Worship. She she isn’t from here and I thought maybe I could–” Jeremy now stood to face the leader, feeling very uncomfortable because of not teaching Sarah the customs of his world sooner.
“Teach her about our customs, yes. But you had another thing to address as well, yes?” The Leader very well about the situation of his citizens and anything else, including the rumors of an offworlder roaming in their midst, which to his surprise, proved to be true. The cold was making Sarah uncomfortable, it was penetrating through her jacket, which advertised to stop the cold from getting in. So much for even this jacket, what do they use to keep warm here? Can’t be robes or anything like that… Unfortunately the patient if slightly contemptous man put her reverie to a halt.
“I see you have an artifact. You got it by accident on Earth, yes?” How can she get out of a situation getting more strained by the minute? She composed herself before the much respected Leader.
“Yes, I got it from Earth, something weird happening while I was walking down the street…” I don’t feel so good about this… Sarah thought to herself, she felt very dizzy in fact, before falling unconscious in front of the head of thousands of people, and a stranger-turned-guide.

Modify it as you see fit 🙂
