Pure

My name is Lillth Howardson, but you people of the past can just call me Lily. I have come to deliver a message to all of you that you must heed. If you do not the future of this world will be in great jeopardy and there will be no one who can save you.

There are other beings out there besides us, I'm not talking Area 51 UFOS and green glowing aliens. I'm talking real intelligent beings who look very similar to us but they don't start wars, they don't destroy their planet, and they will take over if you don't stop them.

When they first arrived on Earth they called themselves the Purists. A new religion where there was only peace and happiness and butterflies and rainbows and... well you get the idea.

Soon enough though it started to spread around the globe one country at a time. China commanded all it's citizens to become Purists, Russia held a International 'Join the Purists' Festival. The world was falling and no one even knew it.

Some people suspected that something was wrong though and they hatched a plan. They got a group of 40 women who were with child at the time and got them to agree to been hidden inside an old FBI complex out in the desert.

For the women's safety every person who knew the location of the building took a fast acting poison to keep the Purists from discovering it. After eight years the women were to send someone to see what had become of society, only then could they decide whether to leave or stay.

The women entered the building and set up everything the way they wanted it. At some point over the next eight years they all gave birth to their children.

They raised them to understand that there was something bad about the Purists, that they must never join them, ever. They educated them the best they could and when the day came they sent a women out to see what had become of society.

I'll never forget her face when she came back after two days of being out in the world. It was horror filled and she screamed for three hours before she was calm enough to speak.

"T-they've taken it, all of it" that was the moment we all knew we would never leave. We were the only humans left that weren't being controlled and it would be up to us to continue the human race.

We learnt to sneak out under the cover of darkness to retrieve supplies and on one of our trips a young member accidentally stole a time machine that he though was a toaster. It spent its day in an abandoned section of the building until I came across it.

It's been Fifty years since the Purists took over, you'll know one of them when you see it because they all walk around with this really fake looking smile. They wear plain white clothes that never get dirty and though not malicious they always win.

This was my opportunity to come back to before it all began and warn you. Don't let them take control, nothing good will come of it. World peace and harmony and rainbows might sound nice but at the price of the human race it isn't worth it.

I know this from personal experience, both because of what happened to our race and because of what happened to the love of my life.

His name was Leo and he was a very brave and kind man. He was the one who went on the most dangerous ventures in search of supplies. I don't know how the Purists can tell your not one of them but they know.

On a raid for fresh water something went wrong and Leo did not return. I foolishly chose to go and look for him, and I found him but he was not the man I remembered.

He skipped down the street hand in hand with another Purist, his fly away red hair cropped short and a dull glassy look in his blue eyes. He didn't see me but I saw him, he was smiling and he looked happy but I knew it wasn't true happiness.

I couldn't save him, once the Purists have enslaved your mind there is no going back. I had to leave him there and continue my raid but it tore my heart to bits.

Hide your children, draw your weapons, and when they come kill them all. They do not know of violence, they will not be prepared for a species that fights back. Stop them before they enslave us all.

Take care people of the past and do not allow the Purists to blindside you this time. This is your only chance, you will not get another. Sleep with one eye open and plan ahead before it is too late.

genlynne2379: I read the other review of this book and I must say that I disagree with it wholeheartedly.

They should have different names a...

borkarprasad: Nicely laid story. Needed a little more ghost and Raven conversations. Initially, Had everyone on suspect list but satisfied by the precision to capture the killer. Waiting for more Raven and Cade adventures.

Shweta Somwanshi: I just chose to read this out of nowhere and now I can't stop. Hats off to the author who made the reader swoon away with words so beautifully!

Alani Foreigner: I absolutely loved how you created this story. It isn't like the other cliché stories I've ever read. I had just started reading it yesterday and just had to finish it. The main characters are grotesquely awesome and I fell in love with them. If you're into fantasy and stuff I can guarantee that ...

Erin Crowley: The concept here is really strong, but the execution is definitely lacking. Tenses, grammar, etc are all off, with at least one or more errors per 'Page' on my phone. The writing style is almost broken- sentences move into each other awkwardly, and are filled with an excess of "filler words", lik...

Lauren Sanby: This is an excellent story. Very gripping and keeps your attention throughout. Hoping the author is writing a sequel because I'd love to read more about Rhi and Andreas and find out what else Rhi is able to do with her powers.
