Chapter 5

"How can you be sure?" Tom asked.

"Because I don't see any bubbling liquids in the lab," I answered.

"What's that got to do with anything?" Tom asked.

"It would be my guess," Woody started, "It has something to do with his dream. Am I right, Michael?"

"Indeed," I replied.

"What was the hallway earthquake about then?" Mary asked.

"I'm not sure," Woody replied.

We cautiously stepped back into the hall, and were awestruck at what we saw. There on the table across the hall from where we stood was an odd looking metallic object. It was cylindrical, about four inches in diameter and eighteen inches long, highly polished, and had no apparent opening in it all. We approached the object slowly.

"What do you think it is?" I asked.

"I don't know. I have never seen this type of metal before," Woody answered.

"Can we touch it?" Mary asked.

"It seems to be harmless," Woody replied.

"Wait!" Tom exclaimed as Woody was about to touch the object.

"What?" He asked.

"We don't know where that thing came from, and you said it was unlike anything you have seen. I just don't think it would be wise to move it," Tom said.

"And what has made you the expert all of a sudden?" Woody asked as he grabbed the object.

As he lifted the cylinder from the table, a man's calm but authoritative voice was heard to say, "Lay it at the feet of my servant, John."
