EOW Chapter 4

I can’t stop him

 

He lifted both of then off the ground and made then both hover a bit lower than him. He gave a quick glance at the gem and it broke. They all got through the portal before it quickly closed down. As they go through the portal a cold wind blew past them, everything looks grey until everything fades to black. Renztnah tries to close his eyes but notice he couldn’t. His entire body felt like they were locked in place by an external force locking Everything in a certain place like glue, even his eyelid. Once they went through the portal 025 flew really high in the sky. Renztnah flying face down saw what looked like a medieval town right of the 1300’s. “Things are just as you left them, Deb,” 025 said as he gave her a quick glance. Deborah tries to respond angrily at his but since she couldn’t move her jaw and tongue only sounded like angry gibberish. Renztnah then saw what looked like a man with a rocket launcher mounted on his shoulder pointed at them. “Aghhh.ahhh.aa” was all the words he could get out before he saw a rocket being launch at them. “Oh save the screaming for later when you’ll be thrown in a dungeon,” 025 said while not noticing the rocket getting closer to them. *BOOM*  the explosion went off and both Deborah and Renztnah started falling from the sky. “Oh my gosh, we’re about to die” Renztnah yeah swinging his arms around. “Oh my gosh! I can move and talk again!” He said again with tears of joy and fear coming from his brown eyes. “Shut up and hang on!” Deborah said as the swing he hand in the humid air to form an ice slide. Both she and Renztnah get on it slide for 10 seconds before the ice break and they fall on the straw roof of a house. They fall through the roof and end up on a bed. Renztnah dust some of the straw off him and look at Deborah in a soft worrying voice “is he dead?”. Deborah angrily gets up and said “of course not! You think scumbag could be taken out so easily?! Get up, we have to run before he finds us.” She then gets off the bed and starts running. Renztnah running after her leaving the house and running through the dirty streets. “What the heck is his ability? Why couldn’t you stop him?!” He said looking up and seeing the smoke from the explosion clearing up only to see 025 come out uncarved. “His ability is to control gravity. He can make forced fields, makes things lighter or heavier. I can’t stop him because unlike me, who needs to touch something before controlling its state, all he has to do is look at something and it can control its gravity!” Deborah explains as she runs to hide in a tavern. “I think we lost him,” Renztnah said out of breath half bend over behind Deborah. Suddenly the ground starts shaving and the entire tavern like a toy house was being lifted off the ground. They both ran out of the front door only to see him there. Arms still cross behind him. They quickly close the door and try to run back and they hear another explosion outside. Suddenly the house fell back down. Renztnah and Deborah fell on the floor. They quickly got up and ran to the back. There were more gunshots. As a group of armed men was shotting at 025. “Come here,” a calm voice said in a corridor. They both ran toward the voice and they see this large vinyl threaded basket. It had two worn-out handles.  “Get in!” The voice was coming from a man wearing a medieval monk outfit. and they looked at each other and got in the basket. The man then covers the top of the basket and put it on his back. And walks away from the scene. 025 after neutralizing the people shooting at him lost their tracks. He angrily left as the villagers looked in terror his reflection in a pool of blood running down streets. 

 

To be continued…tomorrow.

EOW Chapter 3

You’re mine now!

 

The now decomposed body was being feasted on by gigantic mutated crows on the side of the road. The landscape was disfigured and things are closer then they used to be in the old world. The group was walking on the empty deserted highway heading toward the empty city of LA “So why exactly are you guys still following us? I agreed to get you guys out of that cave, that was it. Go away now!” Deborah shouted as she flares her hands in the air. The group of prisoners stopped as she turns back to look at them. Once she turns her head back they start following her again. “Renz! Please tell these people to go away! This wasn’t part of the deal.” She said as she angrily looked at Renztnah. “I mean they’re scared, like you said, if we just leave them out there, they could just get captured again. Is there anywhere they can go?” As he takes off his shirt because the beaming sun has him sweating. She skulls a bit and pulls down her brown skirt a bit and stumps her feet” but I don’t want to! Nobody likes spark people. There’s Reye but that’s in the middle of nowhere. We would need a portal for that.” Deborah grunts some more and Renztnah looked at her and said, “so this whole spark user thing means having powers right? Why can’t these people just use their powers and fight for themselves? What are these portals you mention?” Deborah looked at him and shook her head. “Look here’s how this works. Spark is a thing that’s in the air that only certain people can use to activate their ability. It’s invisible to everyone but certain strong spark users. Spark can be store in Your body but most spark users can’t and can only use their abilities when there is a strong concentration of it in the air. This area that we’re in is very low on spark and these people probably can’t use their abilities. I can use mine because I can store spark in my body for a long time. My ability is to change the state of matter. It can turn water to ice to ice water vapor, you get the idea. There is a caveat but I am not about to tell you about my weakness. These portals were created when the current king took over so he could move his troops faster around the planet. Does that answer your questions?”. Renztnah was was amazed “interesting, so where is the closest portal? Who the hell is this king you mentioned?”. Deborah wiped her hand on her yellow blouses and said “blah, too many questions, the stupid portal in at the next exit. Just be lucky I am talking these people there”. They walked for about another 30 minutes. As they saw the worn-down sign mentioning that they are now in LA there in this giant round stone portal. Deborah says “here we are people. Everybody line up. You guys are going to spark heaven” she then pulls out a gem on from her pocket and inserts it on the right side of the portal then it get activated. “Thank you so much for everything,” an elderly man from the group says and enters the portal. “Sure, whatever. Just try not getting captured again” Deborah said as she turns away. Everyone from the group gets into the portal. “Thank you for helping these people, guess you not so selfish after all”. Renztnah says as he smiles. “Hey, this wasn’t charity! I hope you really do know where that hooded person is because you in trouble if you lied to me” Deborah says as she walks over the portal to get her gem back. Before she could reach for it a man quickly comes out the portal floating mid-air. Hovering over the ground he slowly approaches Deborah. “Hello Deb,” he says in a very deep voice with hands behind his back. “What do you want 025?” Deborah asks angrily. “Right to business as always. I am here to take you back to the castle. Your parents’ orders. Now we can do this the easy wa-“. Before he could finish his sentence Deborah quickly ran toward Renztnah and melted the sign, turned it into spikes and started throwing it at him. 025 just stared at the spikes and the stoped mid-trajectory and they fell on the ground. “I guess we’re doing this the hard way. You can’t beat me, Deborah”. Before Renztnah could ask who that was Deborah grab his arms and tries to make a run for it back on the highway. Before they could 025 extended his left hand toward them and they both froze. “You’re mine now” 025 calmly said…

 

Be here tomorrow!

 

The Dreamer

 

 

Once a dreamer, once a loser

Once a beggar on the street

Now with much power and money under his sleeve,

He forgets the humbleness in his self.

 

Now with everything he could buy,

He steps onto the back of poor people and let them die

He was blinded with money and material things.

He stole the only penny left for his expense.

 

He grew selfish and proud

Until one day he went bankrupt,

He roams outside the street begging for food and water,

Because of his rudeness, no one ever care.

 

Now dying, his one last wish as a beggar living in the street

That his body will be buried with a peanut seed underneath,

So when it will grow the people can eat

The fruit of his own greediness.

 

Once a dreamer, once a loser

Once a rich man, once a winner

Now an old man dying on the street

And a wish of a single peanut seed

To be planted on his grave.

It was happen to me eight months ago. My friend in the neighborhood asked me my number so that she could call me anytime. We’ve texted for few days talking about some funny things until  she started to ask me who I was. I ignored her first text , thinking it was just a prank. The next night, she texted me again asking what’s my name, and because I don’t have time for games, I just ignore it. At exactly eleven that night she called.

“Hello,” I said.

I was surprised when it was not my friend who spoke but a man. He immediately say,

“Hello, who are you?”

Because I started to panic, I just told him that I am the friend of Nisa and I didn’t knew she gave me the wrong number.

He asked where I am and I told him the address of our neighborhood. I asked him if he was Nisa’s cousin but instead of answering me he just say that he was leaving on Luna Street. After I apologize, he hung up the phone.

The next morning, I asked my friend about it. She said that her phone was dead for three days already and she didn’t know what I am talking about. I told her about the guy whom I thought was her cousin but she said that nobody ever touch her phone on the cabinet and there’s no way that a guy will touch it because there were no man in their family. I was shocked entirely but still skeptical. I showed her the caller I.D and her number and she responded if she can charge her phone in my room so I will know how dead her phone was. After that, she showed me all her phone book. No outgoing and inbound call. I’d never understand how was that possible. I try to call her number and it did ring. I scratch my head out of confusion.

Then, she suddenly froze and looked at me. She was trembling when she said this:

“If it’s not me, then it might be papa.”

 

Well, sadly, he died three months prior through a brutal accident.
