This story is a continuation of the following two Parts.
The Car Trap - Part I
The Car Trap - Part II

And thus began her surprisingly short story about my fantastic ordeal. "You were abducted by some Extremist. They wanted to create a completely new dimension where they could try creating a new world. So, the extremist decided to abduct you. They took you to some suburb farmhouse and put you in a beaker with some strange life sustaining chemical... umm... didn't smell like formaldehyde, but maybe Cipher knows more about it... well... whatever and then used you to create a new dimensions."

The story was too fantastic to understand or even believe. "Why would they pick me??"
"Exactly. Why You? It turns out our last ordeal with the vampires has made you famous. You're someone who is isolated from this dimension. Even though you're in this dimension, you're not a part of it. If they pump you with enough amount of high energy, your dimension... or maybe you'll explode to tear apart this dimension's fabric and form a new kind of dimension, and eventually try and take control over it. That's exactly what the extremist were trying to do to you."

"OK. What the heck is Extremist? And why do they want to make this new dimension and stuff?"
"Now, that's difficult to answer. You'll eventually understand the true nature of Extremist, but for now, just know that they are people who think that this dimension should be mearged with our dimension. Or to put it in your language, unify the Heavens, the earth and even Hell into one single realm, where all can coexist together peacefully. Creating a new dimension, and combining parts of elements from all three realms in that new dimension was a mere way of proving their theory correct."

"Sounds like some fanatic making a Utopian world."

"Yes. And that's why, you've become their target. Thus, it turns out you've been assigned a bodyguard."
I had a bad feeling about this. "Who is my body guard?"
"That's me." she said and took out a small packet of chips from her jacket and started eating it. The heavens had cursed me in order to keep themselves in business. I closed my eyes and tried to understand what was this dimension business. Her sister, Ai, had already told me about my anomaly, which was the main reason why I could sense all these supernatural occurances. Then something struck me.

"Wait. If I was put in this beaker with chemicals... then I must have been unconsious. Right?"
"Yes. You were. It took us queit some time to break through their technology and pull out all the wires and pins from you body."

"Then all this time... when I saw the middle class man go rich and the tower and stuff... all that unrealism was... a dream?"
"Yes. Must have been. Because there wasn't any effect in the real world."
"Then all the blonde women I saw were all non existant people??"
"No. Cipher and her two familiars still exist. I think you must have sub consiously started taking all this information in your dream that you saw. You know, how dreams can change according to the sounds and noises around you. You must have thought cars, because the machine that they used to pump energy into your conciousness was humming constantly. When we came, you must have caught some of our conversation."
"I see. It must have been like that."

I was lost in thoughts again. I had more questions. "Hey! Wait. If I'm having this dimensional anomaly... or I'm a different dimension, why the heck am I sensing strange stuff like these happening now? Why didn't they happen when I was a kid."

Enma looked at me with serious eyes, and then looked away uncomfortably. "It's a lot of politics. It's better that you don't know any of it.  Anyways, that won't explain the reason why you have this anomaly... understanding the politics will only give a speculation to your anomaly and not explain it."

I closed my eyes... and then covered my face with my palms. "Enma. Just tell me what is going on?? I've had enough of this business."
Enma looked at me again. "You are not just an anomaly. You may be the key to something... I don't know what, and may never know. Just know this - there are more than two groups with varing motives that are after you. You must be kept alive and away from them."

Starting today I'm an Athiest. Because I know that my Gods can't do anything about the situation I'm in.

Author's Note

And thus, from here on, this would connect to a larger and more complete story, where Enma, and this guy are mere supporting characters. For those who might understand this example, what I've written here would by my "xxxHolic" to a "Tsubasa Reservoir Chronicles." I wonder... How did I manage to end this story like this... -__-;

Anyways... this isn't the best I could write... I'll rant about my problems later... (or maybe never... I don't rant...)

The Car Trap - Part II

 Continuation of the Story - The Car Trap - Part I

She started walking towards the tower. I started following her when we came about half way to it, she suddenly turned back and looked at me.
"What?" I asked her.
"Well, I think it would be better to get some info on that tower before approaching it. Don't you think so?"
"I can't think over that... that... alien's lair."
"Hmmm..." she pondered and then took out a cellphone and called someone up. And then I followed her conversation out of curiosity which went something like this - "Hey. I need some info on some Spider tower in Sector 76, Noida... What? You're en route here?.. Eh? You are near 76?.. No Way!.. OK..." and then hung off.
"What happened?" I asked her
"My informant is coming right behind you."
I turned back and for the first time in the whole day, I saw something normal. It was an old and worn out Maruti 800. It stopped right next to us, and came out a golden haired woman with goggles on. She faced Enma, who surprisingly had her jaw on the ground. It was the first time I saw her this amazed.
"Oye! Where is your Q7??"
"I do not know. My car kinda disintegrated itself into this matchbox."
"And where are Erna and Delana? I can't see them anywhere?"
"This boundary field has a spell against familiars. I left them to keep them safe. But let us please come to topic. You said that there was a tower here? I can't see any."
"Huh? It's right on the top..." I said and then stopped immediately, as I turned my head to look at it. The tower was gone.
"Enma. I believe you. I know there must have been a tower here, but I just hope my fears are uncalled for." the blonde lady said. She took off her goggles to look at the building. And then she stared at me. She stared at me with her beastly vampiric eyes that I've only read of in books or seen in movies.
"You... are an unusual entity. You shouldn't exist here."
"Errm... Cipher... forget about him, and tell me what is it that you fear."
The blonde woman, who I believe is called Cipher turns towards Enma. "I fear someone is trying to alter or overwrite this dimension with his own."
"Are they the Vampires that tried to infiltrate this place a couple of weeks ago?"
"They may not be. I believe their dimension has been Quarantined by the Center."
"Who could it be?"
"I do not know now. I'll go and find out. You said the tower was over that building." Cipher asked Enma pointing towards the building where that piece of bone... or the tower should have been.
"Well then, let's go." Cipher said, and then she grabbed my wrist and started pulling me towards the tower.
"Hold it Cipher!" Enma ... immediately. "I don't mind you taking him, but what are your intentions Cipher?"
"This man here has ability of dimensional isolation like you sister. Until your sister arrives, I intend to use him." Cipher replied without turning back.
Cipher turned towards Enma with her eyes glaring at her and said something that froze my blood... "With Pain."
"Then there are better ways. You know it's not a good thing to involve common guys with no combat experience into all this."
"What do you propose then?"
"Use this."
and then Enma took out a syringe from her pockets and threw them at Cipher. She caught it with her left hand and looked at it, and then looked at me.
"Hmm... Alright, I'll comply. But I'll have my share of fun as well." she said. And then I remember her moving towards me and tapping my shoulder. My body felt heavy and my eyes felt as if they were on weights. Things became dark around me.

I don't know how long it was, but I woke up to deafening sounds of gunfire and strong smell of gunpowder. Then something bumped my head. I shouted out of pain. It was then that I realized that I was at the back seat of a large SUV.
"What's going on."
"He's up. Take this and try to shoot anyone you see..." a woman in a black suit wearing goggles handed me a pistol. Where was the Cipher woman?
"Hurry up! Take it."
I didn't know what to do, so I took the gun and looked out. I failed to understand where the heck I was? I looked at the drivers seat. Enma was driving the Car and the kind of route we were following, she was driving amazingly well. I looked out of the window. There were armoured cars and tanks running parallel to us trying to blow us as we raced through the bumpy road. I was wondering how was I to shoot down tanks with a pistol.
"Don't worry about fire power... just shoot." Enma cried out from the drivers seat. Things must be real desperate for her if she was shouting like that. I aimed the pistol out of the window and fired at a tank taking a very very rough aim. The recoil of the gun threw me back, and my head and wrists hit the roof of the car rather hard. I was withering in pain when I heard Enma shout, "We're there! Hand on tight!" Something hit my head hard again and this time it hurt beyond what I could endure. I could see shards of glass flying around. And then I had this terrible urge to throw up... or maybe I did. I don't know. Things went black as I felt my torso come out from my mouth.

I opened my eyes. I was dark, but flares of light went on and off in front of me. There was this sound of metal, and a really really foul smell. I think I really did vomit as my stomach was feeling uneasy. There was intense pain in my head and arms. But before I could grasp what was going around me, something grabbed my throat and I was pinned down to the ground. A huge splash of water brought my remaining senses back. I saw the Cipher woman pinning me down by my throat and a Man with an empty bucket of water. There was a huge power transformer stuck on the roof, and I was wet with a thick and sticky liquid dripping from all over my body. There were some needles stuck to my arms, and they hurt as if hell was roasting them on hot coals.

"You OK?"
"I don't know... I feel sick."
I could barely speak. The pain was too much to bear and my throat felt choked.
"That's a side effect. For now, you'll live." and then the cipher woman turned around and shouted. "We've got him! Everyone out. This space is going to collapse soon." Then the man who was standing next to her, threw away the bucket, grabbed me and put me over his shoulders. Soon I came out from the darkness into daylight. It was stinging bright, but it was warm and nice. My body felt too sick and too exhausted to celebrate this warmth. I went to a deep sleep soon after.

I woke up and found myself lying on a hospital bed. No wait... I've seen this Private room before. On a chair next to the bed was Enma... or was it Ai? well, whoever she was, she was reading a book or a magazine.
"Feeling Fresh?" she said in an annoying monotone.
"Nah..." I said with a disappointed tone. It was Enma, for her sister wouldn't speak so bluntly.
"Too bad. But feeling any better than before?"
"Maybe. But what happened? Things happened way too fast for me to understand anything."
"It's a long story. You wanna know?" she asked me as she lowered the magazine and looked at me with deep and serious eyes.
"I think I have enough time in my hands right now. So go on. Let me hear your story."

Author's Notes

No. I'll rant about my faulty computer, exams, placement run offs and what not later... but I'll most probably rant about it here only... For now... this is a really really embarrassingly long gap. Part III is on auto post. So it will be this month only... Actually, anything posted this month is auto posted, the reason being my "Pain in the Neck" exams, which I must pass.
