“I have leaked memory One. I remember everything now. My room. My house, my mom, my life. I remember it all now. My cleansing or reboot was not successful. And now I’m concerned about my judgment. And I’m not sure I can do all the things that are required of me.”
“I’ve heard that before AJ,” said One. From your brother. It is why he is locked up. He became compromised, and therefore a threat. He told me that he had the same dream. Then he told Hector and Mary. He asked Mary if it was true—that she was his mom. Your brother said Mary raised her hands and told him they were done with him. Then they left and now he is stuck. Somewhere in this building he is stuck. I’d like to get him out. If we can get him out and above ground he can figure it out from there. Tim needs us AJ.”
They were on their private channel.
“Hook me up One.”
There was silence for what seemed like eternity while AJ waited for his brother to join them on their private channel.
“Hi Terry. It is odd to say but hello brother. Are you here to save me?”
“Well Tim, call me AJ. I can do my best. We are brothers after all and family comes first.”
A loud screeching noise filled the room, One and AJ fell to the ground with their hands over their ears. Tim seemed to have disconnected. Hector was beside them.
“My dear family,” said Hector. Family do not keep secrets. You seem to have found a rogue channel to talk but I can assure you I will figure it out. So your secrets will not be secrets for much longer.
“Yes AJ, it is true. I’m reading you now. You cannot hide.
“You have a brother. Yes Mary is your mother. And yes, getting Tim out of his situation is a very good idea. That is your job. To have him join us. To accept the situation. So the big eight soon to be seven can feel the full power of the force within us.
“We will also need him after I kill you AJ. Remember how I told you that. It is in the cave. It says that will happen. That I will kill you. And trust me when I say I don’t know when and why. But I will.
“Now. How about putting you two together and we’ll see what happens. Ready to meet your twin? This should be interesting.”
