PostSubject: A Suprise from the Past.   Thu Aug 12, 2010 2:23 am

Deep in the forest was a convey of trucks, cutting off paths and restricting a certain area. In this area was a sphere of shining light. People were around it, nearby, not getting too close, discussing actions and keeping an eye on it while others had guns trained on it.

Manda was there, sitting on a box to the side. He had come to know these lights over the last few weeks, calling them anomalies. This was the third he had encountered. The rest of his specialist team were out looking for possible creature sightings or were back at base. He was here waiting to see if any more creatures came out.

A man, mostly naked fell out of the light, gasping slightly and looking around, eyes wide. He had long, shaggy hair that was damaged and unkempt and he had a very badly shaven beard. At his waist was a belt, with a flint dagger tucked into it. He wore sort of a loin cloth thing. He was breathing heavily, his skin dirty making him look very pale skinned. He wore no shoes but on his belt were the remnants of shoelaces. His eyes were a bright shade of blue. He had scars all over his arms an torso and a few on his legs. He wore fabric tied around his hands, his palms. His hair was dirty, now a very grubby light brown. He was six foot three. He had muscle in his arms and legs but he was skinny, weightless, ribs protruding through skin. Tattooed on his hip was an army tag. He looks to be in his fourties, but due to the amount of trauma visible he is probably about ten years younger. He stood up tall, stepping away from the light. In a rough, unpracticed voice, a clear English accent rang out. "What year is this?"

Manda was called over as soon as the man appeared. "Guns down!" he ordered, approaching the man although staying a couple of meters back. Looking over this man, probably one who had been trapped in a time, he felt something familiar about him. A sort of trust. He took another step forwards towards the strange man, his slightly long brown hair moving in the wind.

"It's two thousand and ten. August," Manda replied to his question. "Who are you? What time are you from?"

"I'm Rupert Currier. I was last in this world in 2005. I have a wife and daughter," he said roughly, seeming to tire. He rubbed his forehead with the back of his hand.

Manda paled slightly, stepping even closer to him, a look of almost disbelief on his slightly feminine face. “Rupert? It’s you?” he started to raise a hand to Rupert’s cheek, but then paused, letting it lower, realising that his husband probably didn’t recognise him. “It’s really you...” A lot of emotion was playing through Manda’s eyes, including love.

"I'm sorry...do I know you?" Rupert asked, squinting his eyes. He sighed. "Have you got any food on you? I haven't eaten in days..." rupert sighed, wondering why people weren't trying to help him.

"Oh...right...yes...yes..." Manda waved some people over who brought cases with them and led Rupert to the side where they gave him food and water and started to deal with his wounds. Manda stood to the side, watching him.

Rupert pushed the people fussing his cuts away. "Please...just let me eat..." he grunted, no hint of the smiley happy man he once bad been.

They looked to Manda who nodded to tell them to leave him alone. Slowly he approached him. “Is there enough food there for now? Or do you want me to call in some more?” there was a soft, caring tone to Manda’s voice as he spoke to him, and he was resisting hugging him, letting him eat instead.

"Yes...enough..." he grunted, taking a long gulp of water. "I need you to contact my wife..." he paused, voice caught in his throat, "Tell her I'm okay...tell her I'm sorry..." Rupert took a huge bite of some meat.

Manda felt tears come to his eyes, the same eyes that he used to have, lit up slightly by the anomoly. "YOu don't recognise me...I'm Amanda...your wife..." he said softly, words catching in his throat slightly.

"Please don't joke with me...my wife is female. If you are unable to contact her just tell me..." Rupert looked upset, not looking to Amanda.

Manda looked upset. "Rupert. It is me. I'm Amanda. Five years ago on October 27th is when you first went through the anomoly. Our daughter, Imogen, she still waits for you. It is me, Rupert, look at me, you have to believe it."

"I had a sex change. A number of things made me choose it, but...maybe another time... What happened? all these years...how have things been for you?" Manda asked softly.

"You want to talk about me?! I return and my wife is a man!!!" he seemed angry and upset and furious.

"A number of things happened wile you were away! Things that made me choose to change! I talked to you about feelings before." Manda had tears in his eyes. "I'm happy to tell you, but not right here if you don't mind. I just...want to know how my husband is...what's happened to you...I'ver missd you...a lot..."

"I've been lost...scared...I thought I'd be dead before I got home...I'm hungry, I'm tired, I'm dirty..." Rupert rubbed at his head. "I didn't mean to shout at you..." Rupert sighed.

"Oh rupert...it's okay, don't worry," Manda said softly. "You're safe now. You'll be able to sleep and get cleaned soon, and more food too. Do you want to come-"

"And who's this then?" A man who had approached them cut through Manda's words in s slightly bored tone. He was dressed quite smartly in a suit and tie. The man in charge.

"My husband, Rupert. He just came through the anomoly," Manda replied, looking up at the man. He seemed not overly fond of this man.

"Brilliant, more trouble," the man muttered slightly, glancing round to see what else was happening before looking back to the dirty, man eating food. "Right, we might need to interragate you at some point, so please don't go running off to some random city, not that it would do much good. We will need full details of where you will be staying."

Rupert looked up at the man. "Get over yourself!" he stuffed food in his mouth. "I'd think you should have more dignity than to come over here to a hungry, tired man and rather that reassure him he'll be okay... But you come over here with no compassion! And you're rude to my wife!"

"Wife? I think you'd better check on that one," the man replied, starting to turn away, having ignored the first part. "Manda let my secretery know where he's staying once he's managed to decide." he said without turning back, then walking away.

Manda's fist had clenched, and it was obvious that he was holding his tongue and any rude remarks he wanted to make to his boss. As the man walked away, he looked back to his husband, calming down a little from his anger high.

Rupert had stood up, growling a little bit under his breath. He had put down his food and was ready to lunge himself at the man, but he didn't think with all the guns around that it would be a good idea to do that. Rupert instead stepped forwards towards his wife and kissed her, well him, on the lips very lightly before pulling away. "I will tear that man to shreds, you just tell me to, okay?"

Manda watched his husband, able to see how much he wanted to attack the man. It shocked him when he was kissed, but also made him happy at the same time. He smiled softly to him and nodded. "I'll remember that. He's always like that to everyone so you might get a chance sometime. As for somewhere to stay, you...want to back home?"

"As long as that's no trouble to you...but I have one request...I'd like you to help me bathe when we get back. I'm ridiculously filthy..." Rupert sighed, sitting back down and picking up some more food.

"No trouble at all," MAnda said softly in reply, watching him. "I'm sure Imogen would love to see you as well. And of course I will, no problem."
