Chapter 11 of Convergence is in the queue for posting. This chapter, Tots, addresses some of the issues faced by the children and their teacher. The threat of the Demon to the human race is straight forward. The threat of the aliens coming for retribution is straight forward. The threat of the Children isn't as clear, but possibly more deadly.
Some Neanderthals contributed DNA to modern humans. What happened to all the Neanderthals that didn't make it into humanity's family tree?
I'm also reposting Chapter 10 with some corrections, primarily punctuation.
Enjoy the story.
