It seems the lizards have some friends in high places – Fipps was trying to catch one and as he almost had it, it vanished, reappeared on my shoulder, and chittered at him, almost like it was lecturing him. I chuckled and stroked his chest and suddenly I was phased with him to a parallel world.

I mean, I could see Fipps, and the others and the ships, but I saw a lot more. A lot more. We were surrounded by people who were trying to look like us but the way they moved told me that it wasn’t their natural form.

I didn’t hear words as much as— see images and sense a deep love for their home and curiosity about us. One of them stepped forward and I felt the urge to run away, but then, it stroked my chest, just like I had with the lizards, and suddenly I felt my senses overload.

I saw concern and sensed confusion as they helped me back into our spectrum, holding their hands out as if to say ‘Peace.’

At least that’s the feeling I got from them. They didn’t mean us harm, but we were strange and simple to them- with all our machines and equipment we needed to see what was around us.

All I can say is, I’m really glad I kept Fipps from dissecting one of my friends.
