Time

Gus knew he was causing a scene, but right now he really didn't care. He forced a smile and sat back down and looked at the two women. "So... how long do we got? When's the big day?"

Rayne and Carson had gone quiet watching him. Rayne lshrugged then looked to Carson who watched gus. "im not sure.. They have not given me that information. A week or two maybe. "
Rayne sanke down in her seat.. "so soon?" she asked in a small voice. Carson didnt answer. She had been avoiding thinking of this. She had only focased on the mission. Come observe report back on the humans intellect and war fair habits. Amd she had done that. But she had also learned things that her people didnt care about. Things like love loyalty endurance. Humans had many terrible qualitys but they also had many great ones.
She jad begged the life of rayne and they allowed it. Veliewing her as some strange pet carson had acquired. But her argument for the salvation of the rest of the race was denied.
"why?" rayne almost whimpered. Now that she knew how close it was real fear was kicking in. Not for her self but everyone else. "why are they doing this." carson looked around the room. "we have watched humans for a very long time. As many others have. And most find them to be ignorant selfish and distrutive. Many have faught for this land. Almost all want humans gone so that they might have the earth for their selfs. My people are only slightly different....the wish to whipe only the humans from this place... They will then come and clean up the mess they have made.... Fix your inviorments... tear down your cities.. Clean all of your pollution....then they will start life over... Only with a bit of modifications to your DNA so that you might become better.....closer to what you were ment to be...they choose this so perhaps in the future others might not have to protect earth for you...you will be strong enough and advanced enough to do it your selfs...then others might not see you as some lower life forms... Animals really... But as a real part of the systems. "

it sounded great... Helpful....a wonderful plan... But that was only if you left out the details.. The lives lost. The death count. Some of the worst things in history were done with the best of intentions after all.
