The year was 1711 when the epic of long living infants began. They are abnormal by all Earth standards as if stuck in a time warp. They're housed in a Catholic Orphanage run by a dozen or so nuns. The children do grow albeit at a very slow pace comparable to perhaps one year for every five years of normalcy. The nuns are protective but sworn to secrecy by a Bishop who fears that some heathen entity has invaded his charge and denial is best served for his narcissistic ego. He may one day become a Cardinal providing his resume remains flawless. As years pass, he never fails to employ his rank on each and every visit. He dislikes these children as they threaten his inflated ego, yet he has no answers. The two vow to escape and a windfall inheritance provides a way. The two are locked in friendship and their adventure is as a couple. They plan together and devise ways to achieve a blending within a world that has but an 80-year life expectancy. For them, they had just reached adulthood at age 80. A huge adventure sends them to the new world. Hard work and perseverance over many years, result in establishing the moist prestigious cattle ranch in Montana.
