Chapter Four

THE TREE OF LIFE

Family Trees-001

A family is like a tree. The roots anchor the tree, capturing water and mineral from the ground. The trunk gives this fibrous structure its height and is a conduit for up and down movement of nutrient. The branches project in all directions, sprouting leaves for the gathering of sunlight.

Without any one of these components, the tree will perish. Each succeeding generation of a family must be fruitful and multiply. The Endlichoffer tree, for example has branches in both America and Germany. The European limbs are many, old and established. The American bough, however, is barren, with leaves wilting from lack of buds, all caused by circumstances physical. There may be a day when the surname Endlichoffer will exist only on a death certificate, leaving gravestones as a legacy.

The Ferrell family tree is quite the opposite, with both Scottish and American members sprouting like proverbial weeds. When God created man in his own image, blessed them, saying, ‘Be fruitful and multiply’, the Ferrells have taken him at his word, replenishing the earth abundantly.

In fact, they even have leaf bearing branches that they would rather not advertise, sprouts of this and that that are not consistent with the overall lineage theme, as it was started in the British Isles.

A new branch on the Ferrell family tree, as unofficial as it may be, comes about with the birth of Maggie Lou, daughter of Laura Bell, seed provided by John Ferrell.

It is the Ides of March 1897, William Shakespeare’s ominous day for Julius Caesar and a bittersweet 15th day on the shores of San Luis Lake. The Endlichoffer’s butler, who has attended the doctor and his wife for decades and is retiring as soon as Laura regains her feet, had buggied to Hillside Estate to alert John Ferrell of some calamity across the lake.

An early evening ruse intended to mask the truth.

The NULL Solution = Episode 51

…The Gifted wish to project themselves as mythical; today the jig is up…

As far as ⃝    is concerned, Ekcello learns that Cerella and the McKinneys had spotted it in another galaxy. To fully comprehend every side of the subject, he subjects himself to that menagerie of beings over in the Spaceflight Expository, the escaped Null included. That a Null is the only Eridanian to have seen ⃝    , he is deeply disturbed.

Out of learned respect, Skaldic bows. He is a crowd of one, of those Null having stood in the presence of the Supreme Elder to the High Council. A representative image of Ekcello, looking nothing like this, would appear on their screens whenever any planetary information was to be shared with the isolated tower. #Pay no attention to the man behind the curtain#

The Gifted wish to project themselves as mythical; today the jig is up….

Skaldic is the Null most feared in the eyes of the Gifted. His story {history} is well known. That he dare choose to let his gifts to languish is stuff of legend.

“Can I assume that the rest of the Null are under your control?” That Ekcello concedes Skaldic’s authority is reciprocal respect.

Skaldic relates the story, “With their own eyes they have seen the world of the Gifted. But the hookahs did pose a threat to our stability and I was forced to restrict the rest to the Null Tower. But they have tasted and they have seen. The status of the Null Tower is an issue that will need to be discussed in the future.”

“You are to be commended Skaldic. Self-restraint is a necessary quality in any leader. I recognize you as the Supreme Null,” Ekcello proclaims.

“Is that like being the tallest midget?” Sampson whispers to his daughter-in-law.

“You are witnessing history in the making, father to Deke,” her assessment of this newfangled collaboration is accurate.

This is big – Eridanus big.

Ekcello reaches out for Skaldic’s firsthand observation of ⃝    .

“I did see ⃝    next to our former home world, but only for the shortest of time. I do not know how long it had been there. It did not show itself on our sensors,” Skaldic relates.

“Three cycles, it appeared three cycles past. It is the cause of our neutralization. We know not what it is.” Ekcello cannot relate.

What the Gifted do not know is impossible to quantify. It’s like, ‘You’ll know it when you see it.’ They didn’t see ⃝    ,   but it did drive them into silence.

The term: ⃝    is now common in their 4 separate lingoes; not a word, more of a foggy notion.

whirlybirdIf there was any doubt about she was about to do, they vanish when he escorts her up the three stairs into the 2015 whirlybird, his strong yet tender handling of her hand has that reassuring feeling.

The inside of the general aviation chopper is very well appointed, more akin to a Fortune 500 corporate bird than puddle jumper. “You travel well sir.”

“When you see my apartment, it will go a long way to explain this helicopter…and that little baby over there,” he points to his Learjet in the corner. “The jet is waiting for new tires.”

“There is more to Roy Crippen than meets the eye. So how many other girls have flown in this machine?”

“I don’t know about the previous owner, a pharmaceutical company I believe, but you are the only real female friend I’ve allowed to ride along.”

“The only real female? I don’t see a mannequin around anywhere, like the dummies put in the passenger seats of their car to ride in the commuter lane, freaky.”

“My Mother is a female and I fly her into Wesley Wood Geriatric in Atlanta for her check-ups. And by the by, I had to tell her where I was going and with who. She wanted to know how I met you, until I mentioned your name and she about fainted.”

“Did she give her blessing?”

“No she was wondering if I kidnapped you. Of course when I told her about a three week Jamaican holiday, she got the hint.”sticky-note-001

What had started as a seven day getaway has ballooned to three week hiatus. —

— After strapping themselves in and being pulled out onto the helipad, the pilot makes one final check of the gauges.

“Don’t forget to check the four-axis autopilot circuit,” Francine comments.

 Now that is something you don’t hear a television anchor say every day. “How about the Mode C transponder?”

“No, I believe when you squawk the tower it should reset itself.”

“How do you know these things Missy,” he has to ask?

“I am taking flying lessons out at Sugarland/Hull Airport.”

“I’ve been out there on Rt. 59. Lots of airspace,” he confirms.
