Dinner at the Goth’s (Part 4)
Bella and Nakaia met up with the others in the living room. By the looks of it they had already had a few drinks and were dancing away happily.
Even Galvex was dancing, and he had some pretty good moves too. And it was at this point that Alexander finally spotted Samla. She had just entered the room and was standing behind the crunking Galvex.
“I’m just saying.” Alexander raced over to Samla and threw his arms around her.
Alexander made a face, “It was only yesterday.”
“Still, that’s a long time between friends right?” Samla asked.
“Right!” Alexander agreed. He grabbed Samla by the hand, “Let me show you my hideout.”
“Lead the way.”
“Here what is?” asked Samla, more than a little bit confused.
“Ah, I see now. My hideout is invisible too.”
Alexander jumped for joy, “I knew it! That spaceship I saw flying over Oakenstead. That was yours wasn’t it?”
Samla nodded, “Your a smart boy. Now does your invisible hideout happen to have a bathroom? I’m busting to go!”
Alexander laughed, “No. Sadly mom won’t allow invisible plumbing in her house.”
“I don’t know why she wouldn’t. Could you show me the way to a bathroom? I’d get lost inside your house.”
“Sure thing, follow me!”

Nakaia noticed a red light flashing on her wrist console. She moved aside for a bit of privacy and saw one message awaiting her.
[ The bird has flown the coop. Supplies at Twin Oracle Point. Courtesy of a ‘friend’. – Xenglo ]
Nakaia sighed, she hated keeping secrets from friends. It was bad enough that Shaela had figured it out. At least he hadn’t stranded us here, those supplies will be enough to build our base of operations here on Terra, she thought to herself as she joined the party once more.

“Ladies, enough playing around in the pool.” Bella commanded, “Get changed and meet me out the back in fifteen.”
“Beats me.” replied Nakaia.
Shaela laughed, shoving Nakaia into the pool “Liar!”
Nakaia come up without even a splutter and smirked. “You heard the lady, go get changed.”

Fifteen minutes later and everyone was present. Bella guided them to a portion of the garden that looked empty, but when they got closer an invisibility field de-materialized to show a set of stairs leading down into the rocks themselves.
The door unlocked with a thunk and slid silently open. Inside they saw a living quarters.
“I know what this is.” said Leyva as she turned to Shaela with excitement. This is the Bonding Chamber!”
