Introduction

Johannes knew they were going to be crushed to death.

He hoped it would not take long-he was scared of pain. The others seemed to be so brave and busy while all he could think of was that the time and effort he had put into doing his maths homework had been wasted.

Life should be better organised. You should be warned that you are going to die; he thought so you could stop doing all the things you should do, and concentrate on those you like to do.

He would not even make a good looking corpse. That was fine though, because he doubted anyone was going to notice.

How it began:

“Men were supposed to save the world, but they failed.” The brown lady paused. Her great soft eyes swept the room and they felt her concern. “The children” She nodded worriedly, “They are our last resort. The Creator is quite determined and has told me clearly he will destroy Earth by fire, if they fail. There will be no more chances.”

The professors shuffled uneasily. “How can a child save the world?” Professor Wright demanded with anger, her glasses jumping with agitation. “We are doomed! The tasks are impossible for a man to complete.”

“We have no choice but to try.” interspersed an enormously fat black lady. “We grown-ups have failed miserably; now the youth must lead us. We have no choice but to find the children.”

She looked at them all. “It has come to this, by our wars and disgusting behaviour we destroyed the Earth, now the young must save the old. This is our only hope. We are a pathetic race! Maybe we deserve to be eliminated.”

“But girls!” wailed Professor Dhlamini. “They think about nothing more than boys, makeup and hair. The boys I agree may succeed, but the girls will surely bring them down.”

“The instruction I have is quite specific that out of those twelve is the chosen one. The prophesy stated: one is found for ever divided, twelve tribes of Israel, twelve choirs of angels, twelve tasks to the twelve born to Drac” The brown lady stated with authority


Far away in another dimension, a magnificently beautiful man laughed in great enjoyment. “Even now the humans show great stupidity. As usual they destroy and kill, then demand God to fix their mess. Now his patience is finished! He will now seal our covenant. I warned him his humans were flawed.”

“Master, our time is nearly here.” A female congratulated him. Her vibrant hair swinging around her perfectly formed features. “Soon the earth will be cleansed of the parasitic man and we can begin to heal it for ourselves.”

The room erupted with cheers.

“Twelve teenagers! It has come down to this.” The man chortled, “We hardly need to even try and stop them. They will fail, because they are the children of parents who failed. Rejoice, my underlings, the earth will be ours!” he exulted.

The beautiful woman looked at him lovingly and held up a manicured finger. “However just to be totally, completely sure-I have removed some of the twelve children.”

“Ah, Lillith, my dear you are so cautious when you deal with these human things. But then you have the most experience! Adam did replace you so fast with Eve when you left. It was hardly decent of him. Of us all you have reason to hate them the most.”

“Sons and daughters of Eve. Pah! I was the first, the only Eve, she was the pretender” The woman laughed evilly. “I will destroy her spawn and show the universe it was me who was the greatest creation, not man.”

“Finally it is my turn to let the true children have my kingdom. The remainder of those twelve children I have not been able to deal with, but they are a pathetic lot, barely able to think straight. They will be easy to take care off when those human loving scum find them. I like to watch them suffer as they live in their silly hope!”

“No hell like a woman scorned, my dear.” The man threw back his head in amusement, as he laughed. His perfect mouth showing straight and even teeth, even his fangs were even and so white that it hurt to look at them.

“Earth will be ours!” he exulted and the others shouted in glee with him.
