13. RESCUE

Nootra and Cybertron were under attack from the Decepticons and their allies. This organized campaign against Nootra was carried out on many fronts. Before launching an assault on L4, the Decepticons had already started invading Cybertron. Nootra Security Forces didn’t delay to deploy Autobots and X-Men in space to stop Megatron and his friends. Unfortunately for the heroes, Broly, the Legendary Super Saiyan, awakened and appeared on the battlefield of Agnam and became the main menace to Nootra’s fighters.

Optimus Prime and Cyclops subsequently sent Zach and Ryan to find Son Gohan. Thanks to the help of Benjamin and his teammates of Nootra’s Wings, the Earthlings found him on Seth, an island keeping people isolated from the outside world. Son Gohan sent Yamcha and Puar onboard Teleport Unlimited, the fastest teleporting craft of their galaxy. These two had as mission to get Son Goku back from planet Namek.

The Decepticons later deployed their troops in strategic places in the city. One of the targeted zones was Nootra Inter-Galactic Stadium. NSF’s agents countered and defeated the enemy, including the gigantic Devastator and Shockwave, some of the Decepticons’ best cards. When Nootra’s agents were dealing with the enemy in the stadium, Zach and Ryan got there to rescue Denver and his friends.

The two Earthlings reached the stadium when intense fighting was going on. They went searching for Denver and his companions. These had taken refuge in some sheltered place. Zach and Ryan passed over the Nootrans and Wally noticed them and showed them to his companions.

Wally: “Hey guys, look! Aren’t those Ryan and Zach up there in the sky?”

Mario: “Can’t be. Probably some new NSF recruits.”

Jeremy: “It’s them, and it seems they’re looking for us. Come on; let’s give them a sign.”

Jeremy came out to the open, shouting and waving to the Earthlings. His companions joined him and they shouted until they attracted the attention of Ryan and Zach.

Zach: “There they are.”

Once Ryan and Zach landed in their midst, Denver carried them in his arms and kissed them.

Zach: “Save this for later Denver. You must leave the stadium right away.”

Shades: “How have you learned how to fly in no time?”

Ryan: “Shades, all things are possible for those who believe.”

Ryan and Zach carried the four Nootrans to a safe place some distance from the stadium. But Denver was too big and they couldn’t lift him up. They went to Omega Supreme for help. The Autobot had just disassembled Devastator into the individual members of the Constructicons and the five Decepticons fled before he shut them down. Omega Supreme heeded to the Earthlings and transported Denver to the place where his companions were. After the Autobot left, Mario and Shades wondered again at the Earthlings’ ability to fly.

Mario: “It can’t be that simple. Let’s say you have some special energy because I tried several times but I couldn’t do it, though I had faith.”

Shades: “Next visit to L4, count me in. Then I’ll fly Denver to Aegels.”

Wally: “If you’re ready to make all the sacrifices that go with it.”

Shades: “Can’t be so hard; even the Earthlings did it. What more of a born Nootran?”

Jeremy: “Shades, there’re only three things in L4 and you don’t like them.”

Shades: “What’s that?”

Wally: “Training, training and training.”

Shades: “Shish. That place must be horrible.”

Jeremy: “But Ryan, you said faith could do it better than training.”

Wally: “Sometimes, I don’t understand what faith is all about. We talk about it as if we knew what it is whereas it’s an abstract concept hard to grasp. What’s faith in reality?”

Ryan: “It’s challenging to give a definition Wally. Let’s say faith is the invisible possession of what you want before it becomes visible. It’s like you having the thing yet being unable to see it. Faith is a guarantee because once you have assurance of being or possessing something, you’ll see the manifestation. Not so Zach?”

Zach: “What I can say is that faith is something standing for another. It’s a token, a pledge, a promise you’re certain about, though you can’t see the real thing. Like Ryan said, it stands as something in the visible absence of the thing and proves the existence of the thing even though the thing isn’t seen. Once the desired thing appears, there’s no longer need to have faith in it for faith disappears with the materialization of the desired substance. Faith is operational when there’re two realms; the invisible and visible. Since all things are in the invisible, it requires faith to bring them from there to the visible.”


Ryan: “It isn’t because something is invisible that it doesn’t exist. Sight is not the only mode of perception of truth. Even our sense organs are subjective and we sometimes perceive reality according to the reflection of some elements on others. We can’t see the wind yet we know it exists because we feel it. Hearing too is another form of perception. When you hear truth, you use faith to appropriate the invisible asset after receiving the revelation contained in what has been proclaimed to you.”

Mario: “Here’s my riddle: I hate training and I have faith to fly yet I still can’t fly. What’s your answer to this believers?”

Ryan: “Mario, faith on its own has no power to do anything. Having faith in faith is useless. It is faith in the object you believe in that changes everything. You don’t believe in faith; your faith is in someone you trust has the power to fulfil your wishes.”

Zach: “We believe in the Agape who is almighty because He is Love, the supreme power. The Agape being the Almighty means He has the power to do far above whatever a man can think. If you have faith in something or someone who doesn’t have the power to do what you want, your wishes might not be fulfilled since the object of your faith would be powerless.”

Wally: “This is enlightening. The ability of the object of faith determines the realization of wishes and dreams. Now that our object of faith is the Almighty, it goes without saying that we’re unstoppable.”

Shades: “From today, guess who’s going to be my object of faith?”

Jeremy: “The Agape, of course. You guys have got philosophers on Earth. I want to know more of these things.”

Mario: “You can be stupid at times brainiac. This isn’t philosophy Jeremy; it’s revelation and according to Ryan’s explanation, it’s the only thing we need.”

Shades: “Wow! I’ve received revelation on faith. Henceforth, I’m going to use my faith to get everything solved.”
