The temperature in the room suddenly dropped. Anali sees these tiny impostors flying around her branches inspecting them for any petals. Their curious nature was somewhat whimsical. Their flight patterns so clumsy and hysterical even. But the threat of Violet still being active brought her back to reality.  As she turns to check on her she notices Violet’s body begins to glow brightly. Something was definitely up. She didn’t think that Preet and her could afford to find out what either. They’d have to escape for now. Violet was too powerful in this state.

IMPOSTOR

(Con’t from Day 293) The factors that cause aging are still much of a mystery to science. The Ishan’s genetic code is not much different than human. Something in the Ishan’s genetic code tells it to continue with it’s normal adult function longer than the average human. Therefore, they tend to live longer. Human’s have that capacity as well.  We just can’t tap into it yet.

Anali continues, “There is a cave that goes deep in the earth. There, a tree grows in a dark cave, which is pretty remarkable because it’s able to grow in the dark. It’s sap has many healing properties for the Ishan. To humans though, it tends to have a fatal nature.

“Chûndra, very depressed, got lost one day. It actually was right before she ended our friendship. She found the tree and brought the sap back home. I think she knew what the sap was and the detrimental affect it would have on her. However, she took some anyway. When we found her, she was very sick to the point of death. In fact, her heart stopped for three minutes. We used our electromagnetic powers to stimulate it to start beating again. She lived, and continues living. And I have an idea her new place is by the old eucalyptus where her mother was buried.”

In addition to locating the eucalyptus where Chûndra’s mother was buried, the impostors pictured here also became an important factor in finding her location. They had been feeding the entire day when Preet stumbled upon them.
