We were asleep too long. The enemy has been busy. There was a plan, to defeat the greatest foe in the galaxy, and I was key to that plan. Unfortunately, I can’t remember it. Not to mention, time has taken its toll on the once proud metropolis of Tewhebenco, the center of our operations. Now it is just an endless jungle, and we have to start from scratch, again. And, we have no means of getting to anyplace civilized.
Being lost in this jungle hasn’t helped, but at least we met a team of archeologists in training. The best thing to do, I guess, is accompany these college kids, and when they are finished playing around in the dirt, they will take us to what passes for civilization after seven thousand years. Then we can start rebuilding…
The stunning science-fiction adventure Ambivalence: The Balam Restoration Part 2 follows the continuing adventures of warrior Kendra “Amaratzu” Anteen. The battle to save Earth begins in the jungles of Central America.
