Kiri: yo, I finally arrived.

Russ: oh my God.

John: where the heck you been?

Kiri: Iíve been in a meeting.

Russ: thatís a good excuse.

Kiri: yes, that is a good excuse. Iíve been in a meeting with the crŤche parents for Leonedies.

John: was he misbehaving?

Kiri: no actually, heís been very well behaved, heís been as they put it a typical super operant. Theyíre both super operants and theyíre expecting.

Russ: oh congratulations to them.

John: so when heís been behaving himself, you mean he eats the hamsters whole and spits their tails out?

(John is confusing the son of Kiri with the daughters of Tia and Mark who are of two totally separate races.)

Kiri: no, he doesnít eat hamsters, heís a typical Sirian. He loves fish, can't hold it down very well at the moment because heís too young. He behaves himself. He is a as they put it, a good child which made me laugh because they donít see him at home and they said that they can imagine as they're expecting their second child.

Russ: was their first one was a super operant also?

Kiri: yeah uh-huh, itís normally the way that it happens.

John: Mark was telling me about Leonedies putting him in a bubble and thinking it was a big joke and Mark almost panicked.

Kiri: I think that was something that I thought was best not to bring up in the meeting, it was like a parents meeting?

Russ: PTA kind of thing?

Kiri: uh-huh.

John: yeah, yeah, is it okay with me bringing it up now?

Kiri: oh yeah, I think it was funny actually looking back on it. At the time it wasÖ..

John: well I mean Iím picturing Mark in my mind in this bubble trying to get out and this small super child justÖ.

Kiri: well he wasnít the only person involved in it.

John: I know, I know.....

Kiri: he was in a meta-concert.

Russ: he was in meta-concert with some other children.

Kiri: uh-huh, yes the Cubs.

John: yes but they blew Mark away temporarily at least.

Kiri: well five individuals of the same mental strength as an adult joined together will overpower an adult.

John: yes, Mark found that out.

Kiri: uh-huh.

John: did you find it amusing?

Kiri: yes.

John: did you know what was going on when the kids were doing that to him?

Kiri: not originally no, when I got there I assessed the situation and I just disrupted the meta-concert. Itís pretty easy to do actually.

John: why canít Mark do that?

Kiri: because heís not a powerful coercer like I am.

John: is he a powerful coercer in the third dimension?

Kiri: heís got quite a lot of coercive ability but compared to myself, he is limited.

Russ: well Kiri, I look forward to our work here coming up with shielding.

Kiri: uh-huh.

Russ: and we get to a point where I can maintain shielding on a constant level without having to keep reinforcing all the time, especially when like Ashtar is in town.

Kiri: and especially when youíre up against me.

John: and Iím assuming the testing will involve me also?

Kiri: uh-huh but it will be random, very random and it will come from sources that you wouldnít even know.

John: okay and Iím expecting youíll be involved more directlyÖ.

Kiri: no.

John: then Ashtar is. I mean would he test me?

Kiri: oh, not personally until it came to I think you would say examination time.

Russ: like this time I could feel him testing my shields but unfortunately my shielding needs more work because I canít maintain it at a strong enough level for the entire time he's talking. Keeps coming on and off.
John: well it sent shivers up and down my spine.

Russ: well he was just giving you a little, minor probe.

John: oh yeah.

Russ: with me he was a bit more....of a more.....

John: serious with you?

Kiri: put it this way, if he was to probe you at his normal level for operants up here, you would go AHHHHH and your head with boil and I donít mean that a negative way, I mean.....

John: my head would boil?

Kiri: well thatís what it would feel like.

Russ: yeah I got a headache from it.

John: it wouldnít literally boil would it?

Kiri: no but thatís what it would feel like.

John: .......more direct?

Kiri: he's going to try, if not, he will send his deputies or he will make a deputy. But for shieldingÖ..

John: is that anyone Iíve met?

Kiri: yeah uh-huh, well he will decide at the time. Anyway Iíve got toÖ..

John: and whom might that be?

Kiri: it could be myself, he could ask Korton to sit in for him, he could send another Council member, he could send anybody or ask anybody that he wishes. After all, as he once said, he is the base commander.

John: and Ashtar, is heÖ..? He seemed to be pleased with everything overall.

Kiri: I thought so, uh-huh.

Russ: good luck with the ski races darling.

Kiri: oh thank you yes, I leave on Wednesday of next week so I will be briefly at the next channeling session so we will deal with what happens then. I believe it might have to be an early channeling session as well like 7:30, otherwise Iím going to miss it.

Russ: okay.

John: but the rest of the gang will be there right?

Kiri: yeah uh-huh.

John: if you canít make it?

Kiri: uh-huh. Okay, Iím going to step aside and put on the next person as I am supposed to be ring mistress and I would like to thank my elder for sitting in for me.
