Arrival

Amanda stepped out of the SUV at the apartment complex. She first she noticed was the cops who already dispersed the curious crowds.

The next thing she noticed was Trisha, standing on the steps, waiting.

Amanda started towards her. At this point, Trisha knew and ran from her spot and greeted her.

"I was so worried about you," Trisha said as they hugged, "I'm so glad it's over."

"Well, I'm not out of the woods yet," Amanda said. Trisha looked at Todd who shook his head slightly.

"Oh, Amanda," Trisha said.

"I have some time," Amanda said, "but I'm not sure how long, so we have a lot of work to do."

Trisha nodded.

Agents Cohan and Gibson walked over. They were in the car behind them.

Amanda spied some people, with their phone cameras out, walking over. "Let's all go inside," She said.

Gibson motioned to one of the cops, and they immediately went over to the video bloggers.

Amanda was inside before she could see what happened.

Inside the apartment complex, Amanda looked around. She was surprised on how many Inersiens were there. Some she recognized from before she left. Some Amanda never saw before.

In front of her, standing at full attention, was Boris, his wife, and Mr. Carter.

Amanda felt a little saddened. "Those are the only three Natisiens?"

"They're the ones who came with me," Todd said sadly. "With no hope of going back home, nobody wanted to leave."

"There might be some that are here with the other Inersiens," Brian said hopefully.

Just then Agent Cohen walked in. "Wow!" he exclaimed as he saw the Natisiens, "Those guys are big!" Then he looked at the six standing in front of the doorway. "You know, I thought you would be happy to be home."

Amanda turned to him and said solemnly, "We are missing our other half."
