“One told me that things are not as they seem. That Hector and Mary may have other things in mind when it comes to our work. Please explain.” AJ watched his brother closely and was surprised by his gestures and expressions that were very familiar.
“I tapped into a conversation between Mary, Hector and someone else. They talked about the plan going well. That soon their dream would be a reality. That they could take their place where they belonged. As the leaders. In charge. I didn’t get much after that, but it was a far cry from what they told me—that eight soon to be seven companies were evil. They were going to disrupt, destroy, and then dominate the world.
“So I wonder. Are the tech guys evil? Do they plan to do all of these terrible things? Or is this a plot by Hector and Mary to take over?”
AJ pondered. “Well right now Hector and Mary and whomever is the other person have over 2000 of us. The brightest kids in the world who can, when together, solve almost any problem. They have me as the central nervous system. They have Kal and One as the switch.
“Which leads me to a big question. What did they tell you they wanted you to do in this Tim?”
“Well,” started Tim. “To use my special powers AJ. Powers you do not have. The power of suggestion. I can enter someone’s mind and suggest. In other words, I can tell someone what to do. I believe that is why they were interested in the eighth tech company. Getting him here to negotiate and letting me enter his mind and suggest what he should do. I may be a liability to Hector. For instance, he is unconscious at the moment but when he comes to I can tell him that all is fine and he will go with that.
“Which leads me to something we need to deal with right now. A new level. A level none of us have entered. In our minds. I will send the information to all three of you. It is beyond anything that has been developed by Mary and Hector. They will never find it. It will be our new place to talk. I’m sending it now. Hector is starting to move. I will deal with him now.”
AJ smiled. “Amazing. Simply amazing. No wonder they have you locked up.”
