"Connie, you should have seen it! It was YUGE!"
"If I hadn't seen it on the evening news myself, I'd have thought you were wonky", Connie said,
looking at the video for the 5th time.
"You think it lives in the area", she asked?
"How the hell should I know. All I wanna do is get as far away from it as possible."
Flight 570 was due in Chicago at O'Hare in just over three hours.
As they cruised along somewhere over Arizona at 30,000 feet,
David put his iPad in his carry-on, closed the shade to the window
and decided to have a nap. He fell asleep and dreamed.
He found himself on that hill in Colorado and he knew who was coming up behind him.
He screwed up his courage and slowly turned around.
There was the bear, standing there. All 547 pounds of him!
It looked at David, cocking its head and sniffing.
"Oh hey, I know you. You're the guy who...."
"Good Lord, you can talk?"
"Yes, I guess so", said the bear after giving it some thought.
"Where am I", asked David? "It looks like...."
"It's been made to look like that place. It is a place of...Higher Consciousness. Not many people can find their way to this Place.....let alone know of its existance."
"How did I get here, then?"
"I am not sure how to properly explain this. It is the way you are sitting combined with your current state of consciousness and a problem with the oxygen in the metal bird you fly in."
"Am I gonna be okay?"
David stood there not really knowing what to do...or what the bear would do.
"You aren't gonna bop me one, are ya", David asked?
"Hey, relax already. We switched places, remember? I'm not going to 'bop ya one.'"
"Uh...okay", David said. He let out a breath and he actually relaxed.
"How ya doin'?"
"Fine", David said with a smile. "How about you?"
"I'm good. Listen, as long as I'm here and we're talking and everything, I'd like to ask ya to do me a favor."
"What kind of favor?"
The bear sat on the ground, so David did the same. The bear told him what he needed and laid out the plan.
David just sat there and looked the bear in his eyes.
"Hey, I'm a bear. Bears can't lie."
David actually chuckled. "Alright, you've got yourself a deal.....on one condition."
"Watch over Connie while I'm away, will ya?"
"Deal. Are you ready?"
The Bear got up and walked toward him.
"Now what? Change of heart?"
"No, it's just that I don't know who you..."
"Oh yes, that. I forgot that you Humans have names. Call me Sanders. Everybody else did."
"Sanders", asked with a chuckle?
Mr. Sanders shrugged and smiled.
"Okay, I'm ready."
Sanders hugged David and that was all it took.
