Adia, Scientist of Areon, second edition, now available on Amazon.com
Doomed scientist strives to discover a new fuel as War moves closer, but her experiment explodes. Now Adia realizes just how vital her work is, and who threatens it, when a visiting scientist saves her.
A holo showed what happened. Prog One records all incidents. Takes holos from every person's angle and combines them into one. Director Pragate and Security surely see it now. The holo clearly showed my hands going too far into the dimportal.
If I had spoken all the coords and waited for verification, as procedures demanded, the explosion would have happened here, in the lab.
A simulation predicted the 1000x field would not have contained it. Flagged an error in the 1000x code. Sent the sim to Safety. Safety Section made an error? That is how my hands slipped into the portal?
“Age must have weakened the containment field generator. Infoserver." Vonn said, "Help Adia. Medical databases."
"Infoserver malfunction. Databases not found."
We stared at each other. "That is not possible."
Derees waved. "Access medical databases."
"Databases not found."
Tingling grew to pain! Close contact to an explosion was unheard of in the five years of the Eicken Project's existence. Medical databases were requested very infrequently.
Regen will save me, will it? Pain took my breath. Will I set off the ED's? Sight faded.
“We need a healer! Is there one in the Director’s Office?”
“A healer? No, we do not employ them except in Eicken Hospital. You must take an injured person there—”
“I will not take my colleague in that place!” Derees slashed the holo off!
“My trade bal—is not—enough—” My voice whispered.
Vonn held onto me. “Derees, try to contact Kleideu for a healer! I have trade, Adia. We must—” He startled, as my arms dropped.
Footsteps. Sudden impact. I stared down at medium-blue boots. Felt warmth, at my wrists. With it, strength. Twin fingers held my wrists and swelling vanished from my hands. I reached for them as my eyes found his.
Golden eyes opened impossibly wide. That round face smiled at me. “Does my healing help you?”
Calm penetrated me. Heard the singing, in my mind. Pragate became ill after he introduced the Zheien. That singing I heard as he healed him.
"What did you do?" Derees gasped. Touched my fingers. My red skin showed no sign of injury. Strength returned to my wilting body. Redness left, and with it, pain.
"Thank you." What to say? Heat crept into my face! Oh, my heart pounded even more! Surely an ED will alarm!
Ryonne~ moved a hand to my shoulder. Warmth. I sat upright in the chair. "Is Zheien healing."
Vonn smiled and let go of my shoulders. Looked at our visitor.
His orange skin paled as calm slowed my breathing more. "Are you well?"
"Other than losing two weeks of work, yes, I am well." I smiled, and so did he. Still expected the DF to come. Worked harder to control my breathing. Sleep pulled at my eyelids. Warmth from his hand stopped. The touch of his twin fingers, the nearness of him—does it show, how he affects me?
The two security men watched us. One came to Ryonne~. The other walked to Vonn. Am I in trouble?
"Ambassador, now that we had our little excitement, let us find the ANW lab." One of the two men in black Eicken Security uniform pulled at his arm.
The other asked Vonn questions about what happened. Vonn brought up a holo of Safety's Department Leader, Leherr Firs.
"But, excuse me, this is the ANW lab.” Citsa pointed with a scowl at my charred and melted workspace.

Adia can see many futures which have already saved worlds. But she cannot see the Final Battle, in which she will use her White Cube Of Light, most powerful of the telepathic weapon-Cubes. Eriganh holds the Red Cube Of Fire, second most powerful. She knows where the battleground will be, in a quiet front yard of a house on Elizabeth Street in Atlanta, Georgia. And, she must gather a few chosen Earthans for the battles after this. On a world new to people from other worlds.
Second Volume in the Adia Series. Coming in 2023.
Ry’nao came to us early. “Friends, I am sorry to wake you, but we must act quickly. Earth just found a ship belonging to an escaped slave. Bi Keras has operations on Saturn’s moon, Titan.
“Pirad plans to port all of the slaves here. There are 525 of them. It is a small mining operation. He reported the Minelord to TS and let them know we hold the charter of Rainbow Unwell Colony. I appointed Molly to be Queen and she agreed. All of the healers with us vouched for her ability to rule as Queen, so it is now official. They have many ships. He modified them by this ship’s specs and made them into an identical ship that is red. This shall be Molly’s Ship, and we may park it in alt space beside us.
“Young Molly will help in healing these slaves when we receive them. Armed ships from Fhiah will arrive there in a few hours. Greg and Briahh are assisting Pirad and they are well. Deb is learning to help them.
“All but two of the escaped slaves will come here on our ships. Pas brought 5 enneads, so we have enough healers for all.
“Luc’vel and Oesha took a team to the rain forest for samples. With Pirad’s tech they should finish before we meet with the Earthans at Arnold Air Force Base at 9 am.
“I asked Ni’olmai and De’sai to come with us. De’sai explains trade very well. Ni’olmai will assist me. M’Naga is staying on the ship to prepare my proposals for trade agreements. Jen is unwell, so Doug wishes to stay with her. I am happy. How would we explain his poetry to Earthan politicians?” He laughed, and his gray hair floated around his face.
“Berto, Cerict, Merritt, and Persay Ni will come with us. I am sure we will be very busy all afternoon! My Assignment Specialists can field questions.
“But, I need you, Adia to locate the other two slaves. They are with two different Earthan families. I want them safely on our ships before we finish with the meetings today, unless you see reasons not to proceed.”
I nodded. “Cam, Trader of Ishah Elshar Colony, is too injured to help us, but he knows much of slaver activity on Elshar Mashai. He is very important to us. Many of these slaves assisted him when he investigated Leader Mirado, and all vanished.
“Pondaiash, Diplomat of Elshar Zheiea, did much work for King Challet. He also reported much about slaver activity.
“These men may know vital information to help us, if they are able. Who among us is from Elshar Zheiea?”
“Asha is from Ferrimos, so he probably knows Pondaiash. Diplomats from Ferrimos get to know all the others because they travel from prov to prov settling trade disputes."
A young Zheien ported to us and bowed. I took his hand. “Your wife, Oleana is near us.”
He shook his head sadly. “I have nae, Queen Adia.”
“You will.” I showed him that future which now, will not happen. He was very frightened in Rainbow Unwell Colony. Pirad restored his memories, but they did not feel like his. He shuddered when I showed him how he was trained to act as Earthans do. But, he smiled when he saw Oleana.
“O, Pondaiash was my tutor before I attended Sigan Mas! I wished to join his DS Team but he gained independent work.” Blue eyes turned dark. “We both helped Cam Ta with trade disputes.” His yellow skin paled. “Fa moved us to Marenalay because Elshars pursued us.”
I put my hand behind his dark, straight hair. Such mind pain he had! “Let us go first to Pondaiash. Ry’nao, Jacob Westermeyer, Colonel of Arnold Air Force Base, is about to meet him. Whom do you wish to also meet this official?”
Ry’nao startled. “Friends, he is the one we arranged to meet today! Berto, I wish to send you. The rest of us will wait for our appointment.”
Berto smiled. “I am ready!”

Ben was waiting for me. “I wish to show you my parents!” By my handsome blonde-curled beau were Lineas, who also had blond, and Keea, with dark hair. Neither of them had his light yellow-green eyes, though. Lineabin, his grandfather did. I hugged them. Lineas had bright blue eyes. Keea had medium brown with golden highlights in them.
