One Too

by Sherrie Cronin


~~~~~~~~~~~~~

GENRE: Sci-fi/Fantasy

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

BLURB:

Telepathy creates as many problems as it solves, as most of the members of the secret organization x0 would admit. When new member Lola discovers another group of telepaths with a completely different approach, those problems multiply at the speed of thought.

Soon, Lola’s family and friends are in danger. Lucky for her, she’s not your average budding psychic. Each person with whom she is close has a special gift of their own. That’s good, because it’s going to take every power they possess to keep this other group from succeeding with their plan to eradicate x0.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

EXCERPT:


“So how is tomorrow looking?” her mother asked.

“It isn’t.”

She watched her mother’s eyes widen in fear.

“No, I don’t mean it that way. I mean that I can’t see the next minute or this afternoon or tomorrow.”

Alex had come in from the garage and was listening quietly.

“I have a sort of window I see through,” Ariel continued. “At best I see several days out, nothing closer. I mean, it would be really nice to know if it is probably going to rain tomorrow, but I can’t seem to do that. I can tell you there is about a fifty-percent chance of rain next Saturday.”

“I can tell you that,” Zane said as he came into the kitchen headed for the coffee pot.

“Okay,” Alex said. “How about you tell us about next Christmas instead. How likely is it that we are all here together and happy?”

“I can’t do that either,” Ariel said. “The furthest I get is several months out, and I don’t do that very well. I can tell you that next June is all over the place, with a lot of wildly different scenarios having roughly the same probability of happening. It’s a mess.”

Teddie had joined the family. “What you do isn’t as useful as I thought it would be,” she said, dejected.

“I know. But touch makes everything more clear. Come here.” Ariel opened her arms and Teddie smiled as she walked into the hug. Ariel held her sister tight for at least a full minute, while Maurice and Yuden came quietly into the kitchen.

Ariel nodded as she finally let go. “I think I can make sense out of this, if I can get more.” She turned to the elderly Yuden. It was surprising how imposing a woman less than five-feet tall and over eighty-years old could be, particularly in her pajamas. But Yuden oozed a silent dignity.

“I see you in so many of Teddie’s possible futures. May I hug you, ma’am?”

A giant grin broke through the wrinkles.

“To tell my future? As they say in America, hell yes.”

And she threw her arms around Ariel.

The rest of the family got in line, followed by Maurice, and then Xuha and Vanida, who had joined the group.

Ten minutes later, Ariel had grabbed a paper and pen, and she was writing as fast as she could.

“I’ve never tried to do anything quite like this,” she said, a little breathless. “But your futures all intertwine so much that what I can’t make sense of in one place I sometimes can in another.”

“Are we going to be okay?” Lola asked.

“Probably.”

Ariel flashed her mother a grin.

AUTHOR Bio and Links:

Sherrie grew up in Western Kansas thinking that there was no place in the universe more fascinating than outer space. After her mother vetoed astronaut as a career ambition, she went on to study journalism and physics in hopes of becoming a science writer.

She published her first science fiction short story long ago, and then waited a lot of tables while she looked for inspiration for the next story. When it finally came,  it declared to her that it had to be whole book, nothing less. One night, while digesting this disturbing piece of news, she drank way too many shots of ouzo with her boyfriend. She woke up thirty-one years later demanding to know what was going on.

The boyfriend, who she had apparently long since married, asked her to calm down and  explained that in a fit of practicality she had gone back to school and gotten a degree in geophysics and had spent the last 28 years interpreting seismic data in the oil industry. The good news, according to Mr. Cronin, was that she had found it at least mildly entertaining and ridiculously well-paying  The bad news was that the two of them had still managed to spend almost all of the money.

Apparently she was now Mrs. Cronin, and the further good news was that they had produced three wonderful children whom they loved dearly, even though to be honest that is where a lot of the money had gone. Even better news was that Mr. Cronin  turned out to be a warm-hearted, encouraging sort who was happy to see her awake and ready to write. "It's about time," were his exact words.

Sherrie Cronin discovered that over the ensuing decades Sally Ride had already managed to become the first woman in space and apparently had done a fine job of it. No one, however, had written the book that had been in Sherrie's head for decades. The only problem was, the book informed her sternly that it had now grown into a six book collection. Sherrie decided that she better start writing it before it got any longer. She's been wide awake ever since, and writing away.

    1. Glad you liked it Victoria. This was the first real scene in the book involving my character with precognition. It was difficult to introduce five different superpowers in one novel!
