"What? Who's there?"
"It's me, Yal-hune."
"Where are you?"
"I need to talk to you."
"What time is it?"
"It's 1:36 in the morning."
"Okay. Well let's talk then. What did you want to talk about?"
"You have been somewhat distant. Your mind has been far away. It started about three days ago and has grown. I have been around the facilities for the past two days and I hardly have seen you at all. I have concern about what caused the changes in your consciousness."
"Well, to be honest, I am a bit overwhelmed by it all. I have lots of pressures and others think my judgement regarding you is clouded by your beauty."
"So by keeping your distance you show them you are not infatuated with me?"
She laughs her delicious laugh and If it were anyone else it would hurt - with her its like salve.
"Something like that. You probably know that most of the Agency wants to put you in the Extraterrestrial lock up in Area 51. I have fought to keep you free."
"I appreciate your efforts. You are hesitant because you fear your attraction to me is what makes you choose to keep me here and that if I looked like some sort of monster you would be only too happy to send me to Area 51? Then you feel guilty that you are so shallow and that you don't deserve me. Does that about sum it up?"
"Yes. Something like that. I love you Yal-hune. And I realize when it comes to you I am not on balance."
"I know you do. I love you too. Don't ever feel I will judge you because you slip or act like a hormone-saddled adolescent. I've studied Earth for over a century. I know humanity quite well. I know the various escape mechanisms and other psychological manifestations of human thought processes. I know you. I've known you since you were a child. I've watched you grow up, I know all your dark 'secrets' and I still love you.
"That's what scares me."
"You fear you will let me down? You also fear blowing it with the one woman who knows you so well?"
"Yes. My track record, as you know, is to get close then bolt before it gets too serious."
"And I know that those actions are sponsored by the overshadowers. By keeping you alone, they have kept you imbalanced. You have been waging your own lifetime battle with these aliens - and most of the time you have been losing."
"I want to be with you Yal-hune. You can't know how much. I want to spend ALL my time with you and travel the Earth with you. I want to sit with you in the shadows of the Pyramids, I want to play with you in the clear waters off the sands of Aruba , sit in a French outdoor Cafe and then have you try on and purchase designer clothes. I want to sit with you in front of a roaring fire on a cold winter night and cuddle with you under a blanket. I want to sit with you under the stars and kiss you. I want to hold you in my arms and feel you. I want to feel your heart beating and I want to be beside you with each breath you take. I want to fall asleep beside you and wake up with you in my arms - and my mind. I'm completely gone. You've taken over my life Yal-hune. I want to create love with you."
"I know." She fills my mind with her love and it is so much more complex, multi-faceted and warm and soft in my mind. Her love envelops me and I find myself powerless to do anything but absorb as much of it as I can and rise up and return to her my own love. She travels to all the places I created with my thoughts and joins with me in each one of them. All at once I am holding her in my arms, feeling her heart beat and I am in Paris, Egypt, Aruba and snuggling by a roaring fire. With the power of her mind she has made each quite real.
I kiss her and thank her with my mind. As gentle and genuinely tender kiss as I am able to muster. "I couldn't bear to see you leave to live in Area 51. And I don't trust the aliens that are there - some are quite creepy and on two different visits, some were concealing their thoughts big time.
"Yes, we know all the non-humans kept in area 51. You need not fear that any of them could harm me. All of them are from worlds considerably less advanced than our world."
