The three officers began to create a divide with caution tape to corral citizens away from the vines being tossed and to keep a better eye on the newcomers. As the curious onlookers speculated among themselves, a middle-aged woman crouched under the police tape. The authorities didn’t even notice that the woman had approached the unknown subjects. Effie was at earshot, making mental notes of the interaction. She tapped the shoulder of another woman, who turned around with an inviting smile.
“Good afternoon Athens! This is Effie Andino with Athens Local News, coming to you live from the mountains of Birza, near one of former Greece’s most popular parks, Dimosio Dasos Rapentosas.” She paused to let viewers process that in their mental maps. “Behind me, we have about one hundred unknown people, who reports say landed in Greece just this morning, grouping around what seems to be a grassy hill.” Effie stretched a confident hand towards the anomaly, keeping her front towards the camera. “As you can see, they are tearing away at the overgrowth.

“There has been a superior being watching us for ages. Watching us prosper, go to war, attempt peace. Forced into a state of non-existence… She saw our traditions become irrelevant- a mediocre optional lesson. Everything She created became a shell of what it used to be. These centuries have gone by slowly, but the damage is reversible. After seeing Her last, I have been told that our kind will be able to live on.”
