The Sprites Within

By Harsh Munagala

        Every night, the same dream, the same strange planet. But why? What are they trying to tell me? It has been thirty-four years since they landed on our planet, and since then not a day has past where the survivors in the barrier cities fear for their lives. I have vowed to end this fear. I believe my dreams hold the key. The only question is, will I be in time save the Earth?

        I know I shouldn't be here, but something pulled me towards this place I don't know why. Maybe the seventh sprite was here.

        But as soon as we landed, we were attacked by the same strange phantoms that tried to attack our barrier city. They attacked both my men and killed them with their claws. I stood there in fear, without a weapon to defend myself. I looked at my partners thinking that I would end up like them...dead. Luckily, there in Ross's holster I saw a flare gun. Seeing that as my only chance to show my location, I picked it up and fired pointing at the sky and ran for my life, until I found what I was looking for: the seventh Gaia sprite.

        That's where I woke up with a fright in a room that looked like the lab of our city.                So my theory was true: all life is born of Gaia and each life has a sprite. Each sprite is housed in a physical body. Through its experiences on earth, each sprite matures and grows. When the physical body dies, the mature sprite enriched by its life on earth returns to Gaia, bringing with it the experiences enabling Gaia to life and grow.

        So I was right all along, those phantoms were mere ghosts who had not made it back to Gaia probably because before they could, sin had destroyed Gaia and shattered it into 8 pieces. The only reason they killed was so that the sprites of the people would return to Gaia giving it enough strength to survive until we found all of Gaia’s pieces and put it back together so they could return to it. They probably just couldn’t cope with the eternal suffering after death. But seeing as they couldn’t return to Gaia on there planet, they came to ours in search for hope.

        Now I knew that the professor’s words were true. Gaia’s strength could be fully restored if all the eight pieces were to be found and be put together.

        As I got closer to the center the faster my heart was beating. But when I got to the center something strange happened, the Gaia sprites can out of their containers and entered my body. Then a powerful blast of pure energy came out of my body and was aimed directly at the beam. My power, no Gaia’s power was far greater than that of the beam, and so it sent it right back to Alpha 5 Zeus Generator and completely destroyed the Zeus Cannon.                         As I touched the ground, blue lights came from the ground and touched every phantom on the planet. They were returned to gaia. All the destroyed plains on Earth because to grow flowers and grass. The clouds of darkness lifted from the skies. People could see the sunshine, and peace was restored.

        At first I was confused, but as I had touched the ground I understood. The sprite within me was the eighth sprite. Gaia just needed me to come to the right place to recognize it. And now that Gaia has returned, I’ll shall part from this place. Maybe I’ll start planning my further according to what every other women would like to do: get married, have children, and live happily for the rest of their lives. But that’s another story...
