one hour later, six raggedy looking teenagers showed up out of
nowhere in the astral, sitting on the ground near a farm. For a
moment, they weren't quite sure where they were. Then it all came
back to them. The gravel underneath their legs was leaving imprints
like always. They smelled hay. It was a sure sign they were 'there.'

group surveyed the landscape, and it appeared exactly as it was
supposed to be. The field over the hill lay behind Mira's childhood
home. Then they caught themselves staring at each other because of
the sheer scale of difference between their before and after
Jonathan spoke first. He gaped at Michael, who, true to his word, had
come back at about sixteen-years-old. Even his clothes were teenage
clothes. "You've learned some things haven't you!" He was
Mira," answered Michael. "And apparently you have too."
Jonathan looked obviously older than Michael. If Michael had to
guess, he would say Jonathan was nineteen or twenty. "But, I've
re-thought this, and maybe I am going to return to age twelve. It’s
closer to Mira's age, and I can build more rapport with her."
didn't mention that also he just plain missed her. If they were both
twelve, well, hopefully her former crush on him when they were
younger would manifest this time too. In real life she was older than
him, though not by much. That was the weirdness of the astral.
Playing with ages got really complicated.
amazed the others as he shrunk. Suddenly he wasn't sixteen anymore.
Jonathan knew the technique, but the others were in awe.
I do that too?" asked Zac, who was changing into the clothes he
brought. Jonathan noted his older clothes were hanging off of him.
Zac was the only other one at about age twelve. He was also the only
one who hadn't seemed to travel into the correct clothes. He had
arrived still wearing his adult attire. Somehow his traveling skills
were a bit behind the others, who looked their appropriate ages.
said Michael. "You are the cousin I have that is Mira's age. The
more people her age the better."
laughed at Zac's adult clothes falling off. "Okay, Mr. Hobo,
about ready there?" she teased.
she turned to Onie. "Wow, you're suddenly a cougar , aren't
you,?" she said laughing, for Onie had turned up as age sixteen,
four years older than her husband.
ha," said Zac.
forgive me if I wait until we're back into the real world to um—oh
never mind," said Onie.
you do only love me for my body!" teased Zac.
said Jonathan, getting everyone back on track, "we have to be
careful how we introduce ourselves to Mira. It needs to be like it
was before; except atour current astral age, so we don't freak her
out. I'm not sure where she would end up if she got confused and
upset, but it wouldn't be good."
said Michael. He popped a few more Tums. "She could end up in a
forest or a storm. Or alone in the desert—you never know what the
unconscious will do, so everyone needs to concentrate hard because
Mira won't be able to. So I will find her first and try to develop
our old rapport. Knowing her, she will want to learn, and then I'll
introduce her to Jonathan like before."
write this down," said Lu.
have paper and pen," said Onie.
looked at the group. "We really haven't changed much
personality-wise. There's Onie with supplies on hand, Jonathan
ordering us around, and Zac falling apart." She laughed.
think it will be easiest if we think of this like a play. We all have
our parts that are mimicking how we met and acted before. Only don't
forget how serious it is," said Trina.
agree," said Michael.
group spent the next hour recalling their collective memories,
remembering the old days, and then reenacted some of their initial
encounters with Mira. Michael decided to leave out some of the
negative events so as not to traumatize Mira. In the end, they had a
everyone feel comfortable with this?" asked Lu.
you mean, do I feel comfortable as a nineteen-year-old?" said
Jonathan. "Hell, yeah. Loving this."
laughed. Perturbed, Zac spoke. "I'm surprised that I'm only
twelve. I thought I'd be older. Why am I the only one that was
automatically so young?"
answered, "Well, it is representative of your inner evolution,
so physically you may be older, but astrally, in this world, you
haven't really done that much more traveling or advanced your
learning so you haven't particularly grown intellectually or
evolutionally 'here.' And remember," he added, "when
Michael first came back, he was twelve too. And look at him now—he
can stretch to any age."
frowned. His wife saw and added, "It's not a bad thing, Zac.
Some people get older and can't go back because they've lost their
sense of wonder and attitude of learning. Other people never grow up
because they never mature. I think we are right where we are supposed
to be, and you never know, this adventure may change us a bit."
hopefully in a good way," Zac acquiesced.
and Trina at sixteen voiced no complaints.
Onie, this may come in handy, because you know we are not exactly the
same ages as when we first met Mira, except for me, so I think Zac
being closer to her age is a good thing," said Michael.
a good thought," said Zac. "I feel better."
was gathering his things and making moves to go. "It's getting
late. Is everyone clear on what to do? And the order to do it in?"
were nods all around. Michael added, "Okay, from now on, I am
twelve-year-old Michael. Is everyone also clear where to sleep
tonight, how to eat, and all the practical things? We sleep in the
real world, eat in the real world, but if anyone can, someone should
bring some real food to the astral next time."
unless there are any last concerns, let's get this show on the road,"
had one last comment. "Everyone remembers our name, right? We
loved it at the time and believed we were so slick. Mira liked it."
