"Marcus, Xiao Mei. If you remember I'm Lieutenant Rick Garey, you can call me Rick. I just got off the phone with Admiral Kong, if you follow me, I will give you a quick look around."
"Rick, before that… I'm starving so if it's fine can we get something to eat before that." It was a few hours now, and ever since he got the Everlasting Soma, he had a hard time to eat his full.
"Sure that's not a problem, the canteen is that way." The canteen was big, it was able to hold half of the crew in one time. "There, if you go up to the counter you can ask for anything. I ate already if it's fine I will get a table for you two."
Five minutes later Xiao Mei and Marcus walked up to the table, While Xiao Mei was holding a tray that was full to the brim, Marcus had two…
"Are you sure you can eat all of that?"
"I'm not sure if that is enough." Now that he needs to fill the Everlasting Soma Reserves his appetite is three times it used to be.
Rick's phone started to vibrate, seeing that it is Admiral Kong he got up and walked away, then he answered it.
"Lieutenant Garey, there was a small change of plans. Your assignment is still to take care of Marcus and Xiao Mei, but it was decided that we will show them how our world is. So your new assignment is to take them to Gaia. If it's not a problem, they can stay at your house. The army will take care of all the expenses, and you will have more time to spend with your family."
"There is no but, after they have their powers tested, you will take them to register into the population database and buy phones, clothes and all of that. I believe you will do great."
The Admiral disconnected.
Sigh… he can't disobey orders from the Admiral. He will have to roll with it.
Going back he saw both Xiao Mei and Marcus finished their meals. He was gone for less than five minutes and what would take him ten minutes to eat was gone.
That will be a problem… if they always eat so much, he will have to buy a truck of food. Will Mary be able to cook so much?
"There is a small change in our schedule; I will get you two new clothes, then we're going back to Gaia surface."
"Lead the way."
Marcus changed into the military uniform he got from Rick. Xiao Mei got a very similar one. They didn't waste much time, and they got on a ship that will take them to Gaia. This time he wasn't as nervous, Professor Johnson that for some reason came with them explained a lot about the space and spaceships.
Marcus was fascinated by this; he didn't know about planets, solar systems, and galaxies. He checked in the library, and he found that it was all there, it looks like it will be his lecture for later.
The landing was smooth, and soon he felt the heaviness on his bones. It was gravity, something that Professor Johnson explained to him. Because of it being not there or being canceled out in some way, you float in space.
"Professor Johnson it was a pleasure talking with you, if you have time, I will give you all if the information you will need after they finish testing our powers."
"Yes, it is s pleasure to talk to you, and yes I will wait. I'm sure Lieutenant Garey wouldn't mind me waiting here. Isn't that right?"
"We can get you a room to wait in." For some reason, Marcus had an impression that these two don't like each other. But that's none of his business.
They soon arrived at an open field, people in white coats moving around busily, and soldiers patrolling around the area. Soon both Marcus and Xiao Mei were plastered with some wired apparatus and asked to use their powers. They wanted them to go full out and hit a puppet made of metal that was standing in the middle of the field.
"What is it? That puppet." Asking one of the people in white coats, Marcus wanted to know more about it. Ever since they went off the ship, Marcus saw more things that he never saw before.
"Puppet? You mean that robot? It's a testing robot equipped with a lot of sensor's; it will let us measure the effect of your power. You don't have to worry about destroying it; it was made out of the strongest alloy in the solar system. You would have to send it to the sun to destroy it." The man answered him, but he still doesn't know what a robot is. But he said it would be hard to destroy… we'll see about that.
"Xiao Mei, they said that we wouldn't be able to destroy that puppet over there." Marcus went ahead and found Xiao Mei, he whispered to her and looked. Looked at the sadistic smile of hers. He knew that if this crazy woman hears that, she will do everything she can to destroy that thing.
And with no delay, she made her way to the puppet and stood in front of it. "Can we start?" She asked in an arrogant voice, standing there Xiao Mei looked like a fierce tiger that will shred your pieces if you move an inch.
"Yes, go ahead" with a nod one of the white coats gave the green light to Xiao Mei. Taking a big breath, she gathered her energy in the lungs, more and more until she couldn't hold it anymore. She leaned forward spewing flames from her mouth, her fire was sweltering, the heat melted the ground, while the flash assaulted the robot. The robot stood no chance and was almost completely melted.
