Light shone through the trees as she ran, as she always did each morning. The rays blinked in and out of the dappled leaves, the branches and the trunks. She loved the softness of the loamy ground beneath her feet more so than the hard tarmac roads on which she used to run, risking shin splints. More than this though she loved the scenery and loved the nature. This morning was much the same as any other except for the dazzling light. As time passed Lizzy a slender blonde haired women standing tall at almost 6ft clad in her black and red lycra leggings and crop top, that accentuated her amazing figure, stopped briefly to take in her surroundings as usual and check her progress against her time. Sitting on a fallen tree Lizzy cast her eye around the scene. It seemed strangely unusual to her today. It was difficult to pinpoint but the area seemed strangely different. As she looked harder in greater detail for a familiar point flickers like scene shifting stuttered across her vision. Lizzy grew a little anxious and so started to walk around. At that moment she encountered a man equally tall yet very rugged in dress, shabby trousers and jacket with a hood up covering his face. He had a well built frame suggesting a muscular build. He moved towards her, ‘you’re looking lost my friend’s he spoke with a rattle in his voice. Lizzy gave him a curious stare, ‘I though I knew all these woods but this seems unfamiliar to me somehow.’ The man gauged her curious look and almost as if she had no spoken replied, ‘do you fond my presence here so strange? Do I unsettle You?’ Lizzy was taken aback, ‘no, like I say just confused. You being here is your business and I am sure you have good reason to be here.’ It was difficult speaking to a person who’s features you could not see. Difficult to know how to react. The man retorted after a brief silence, ‘ I am here for you Lizzy. You are my business.’ That brief but straight answer struck her with such force she felt as if she actually staggered back a step or two. ‘What the….’ he voice trailed off as though she lost all power to form words. ‘I am here for You, the man replied again. ‘my business as you put it, is to gather up certain people, with certain traits and skills to participate in a new paradigm shift event. The Genesis event.’ Lizzy shook her head, ‘I don’t even know You,’ she felt as though she was gasping for air. ‘That maybe the case but you have been selected. You are single, no family, parents and siblings lost in a tragic fire, you have nothing here to hold you back. You are kind, caring, considerate and full of love and compassion. This makes you perfect.’ Gathering herself together Lizzy spoke with more force now, ‘just who are You?’ There was a demand in her tone now. The man moved nearer, she now saw his face, but there was none, just particles of star like light, images of planets, galaxies, milky ways and nebulae. ‘I am creation’, the voice hit back firmly but this time smoothly, and she felt as if she were calling into him. ‘You have been chosen to be one of a new humanity living in a new dimension, in a paradigm shift where others like you will build a better, kinder and more compassionate society.’ His words brokered no argument, ‘if I say no? If I say I am happy here?’ Without a pause he replied ‘here for you no longer exists. This is your new reality,’ suddenly Lizzy sensed and heard footsteps and more people had appeared. She guessed about twenty at least. ‘ your world as yo knew it Lizzy is gone. A nuclear event early this morning ended it. You as these other people were saved to rebuild a new society here in a new place. This is a new Eden, a new start, a new beginning. Everything you need has been provided for. Go build a new world.’ With that the man faded away and the clothes fell in a crumpled heap on the ground. Lizzy looked at the others and they stared back. Now what she thought?
