Before I begin I have some comments I would like to make.
1st of all this chapter was suppose to be submitted Thursday but I went to a friend’s house and stayed there til yesterday.
2nd Happy New Year’s EvexD
Anyway hope you enjoy.
Crap! I yelled. I tumbled down the hill side. I splashed into the river at the bottom.
Thats right Hacker die! a Warrior yelled. A mob of people was standing on the side of the river attacking me.
Some one help me! I pleaded. Waves kept splashing over me. I gulped down some water by mistake and felt a sharp pain in my lungs. I flailed around trying to reach the shore but the current kept pushing me under.
A Fire Arrow from one the people in the mob hit the water in front of me. A giant wave washed over me dragging me under water. My vision started to blur. I couldnt die yet. I had to save Ly. The stupid crowd still has him! I struggled to swim to the surface but my body wouldnt move. My airless lungs forced me to open my mouth and more water came into my body.
Suddenly I saw a body swim towards me. I saw it was a girl. She swam up beside me and grabbed me by my arm. She suddenly floated to the surface pulling me along with her. As we broke the surface of the water I quickly gulped in air as we rose higher and higher into the air. Shes a Hacker like me.
There another Hacker! Kill her, too! roared someone from the mob.
Ly! I shouted. Ly was trapped inside a steel cage. He had been caught by the mob. I struck out my left hand.
I used vac. The cage slowly rose into the air towards us. The Hacker girl seemed astonished for a second but then started to fly us away. I held Ly suspended in cage the whole time.
We soon came to a stop in a little house far from town.
Thanks. I said to the girl after breaking the lock on Lys cage with a Holy Arrow.
No problem. Seemed like you needed some help. She said throwing me a towel. She threw some wood into the fire place and sat by it. I went to join her.
Whos this little guy? Ly asked. He was holding a little baby. He seemed barely old enough to walk.
Thats my little brother Josh. Im Jane. Jane said.
Im Michael and thats Ly. I saw that the fire was starting to burn out. I reached out to grab a log. I felt another hand rest on mine. I turned to find it was Janes. I froze. I kept my hand there as if for an eternity and so did she.
Please there are children here! Ly joked covering Joshs eyes. I felt my face grow hot. I immediately retracted my hand. I saw that Jane was blushing, too.
Ok Ill leave you two lovebirds alone while I take little Josh here outside for some air. Come on Josh lets go. Ly said crouching down and letting Josh grab his finger. They slowly walked out of the house.
Sorry about that. I apologized.
Its ok. She assured me. We started to go on to talk about pasts. I told her my life story and she told me hers. Apparently her parents were killed exactly like how mines did. She also had the power of fly. It was her Hacker power and let her fly through the air like a hummingbird. I felt as if I could trust her. I felt warm inside just talking or looking at her. I felt
.as if I loved her. I quickly banished the thought from my mind. I had just met the girl, how could I love her already?
It started to get cold in the house. I could see Jane starting to get drowsy. I felt myself slowly falling asleep, too. The next I knew Jane was leaning against me. I was unsure of what to do. I slowly put my arms around her. We just sat like that for what seemed like hours.
Jane slowly turned and looked at me. I felt my heart race as she slowly came loser to me. As our lips touched I felt something I had never felt before. Was this love?
Michael! Ly voice broke the silence of the house. We quickly parted. I felt my face grow hot once more.
What is it Ly? I asked quickly getting up. Josh was asleep in his arms. He gave Josh to Jane and turned back to me.
Them! he shouted pointing outside. A giant crowd was running towards the house. They had torches and weapons.
How did they find us? I asked. I quickly ran outside. I used Holy Arrow and aimed at the closest person.
What do you want? I asked.
You Hackers need to go! someone shouted, They started to attack us. I quickly started to vac all their attacks away while Ly went up close and attacked them.
Jane run! I shouted.
What about you? she asked.
Well catch up later! I shouted back. I saw Jane fly away with Josh. I watched until they were gone and turned back to the battle. Theres too many of them!
Ly! Use it!! I shouted.
Ok. He said. He stood in front of me and held out both hands. I could feel the silver locket around my neck start to drain my power. Ly roared as his claws started to glow red. A red aura surrounded them and solidified making his claws bigger.
He let out one final roar and went berserk. He started to slash the air crazily. Waves of red energy lashed out and started to slice up the mob. They kept coming and coming.
After a few minutes everyone was dead.
I slowly opened my eyes. I had waited at Janes house for a few weeks but she never returned. This was the first time I had seen her in a year and she was my enemy. Why Jane? Why?
I quickly got up. I had been sleeping in the spare room of Lilys house. Lily had to go for some GM stuff. I had been living here for a week now.
I cautiously looked out the window. I had just heard a knock. I saw a boy about mine and Lilys age standing outside of the door. He didnt looked like a GM but what did I know? GMs were disguised all over the place.
Lily! Are you home? his voice rung through the house. Come on. I brought the money for the Ban. Lily had told me she had sold Ban around the GM community. I guessed he was a GM. Ban hadnt lived up to its status as a Hacker-killer. It only took away Hackers powers for good. I was lucky it was only Lilys blood that had spilled on me. Her blood only temporarily took away Hacker powers.
Lily come on open up! the GM kept shouting as he banged on the door. Persistent.
No! I saw Ly all they way down the road walking towards the house. He had went out for some shopping. This was bad. If the GM saw Ly come into the house hed get suspicious and find me.
I had to think of something quick. I looked across the street. A tall, apple tree stood in a garden.
That just might work. I whispered. I quietly opened the window. I stretched out my hand and used vac. The tree quickly fell over. The GM ran to the tree.
I quickly stuck my head out the window and signaled Ly to come quick. Ly saw and dashed toward the house. He jumped up to the window and climbed inside. I hurriedly tried to close the shutters. As the shutters started to close it stopped. A Tobi was lodged in between the wood.
I saw you. Who are you? the GM asked from below. He pulled out a GM badge like the one Lily had. Come out or Ill call other GMs.
Ly, use the back door and go find Lily. She said shed be in the Free Market sorting out some kind of scamming that had been done. I said.
I opened the shutters and jumped outside.
What do you want? I asked.
Why are you in Lilys house? he asked pulling out another Tobi.
Im her friend. Got a problem with that? I asked using Holy Arrow. I aimed at his face.
Hacker I know you knocked down that tree. He said.
Maybe I did. Maybe I didnt.
Well well find out! he shouted throwing his Tobi at me. I easily dodged it and fired my Holy Arrow.
He pulled out another Tobi and used Avenger. He placed the giant star in front of him as a sort of a shield. The Holy Arrow bounced off his star.
He threw the star at me. I Teleported to the side. I fell to the ground. Tobis were cut into my arms and legs. How is he this fast?
I slowly tried to get up but couldnt.
I wont kill you Hacker. Ill just use this. He pulled out a needle with a blue liquid inside. This Ban will stop you. He said. He threw the needle at me like a star.
I struggled to move but my body wouldnt listen. The needle hit metal and fell to the ground. It cracked and the Ban drizzled out.
Thanks Lily. I whispered before I fell unconscious.
When I came to I found myself in Lilys house.
Michael are you ok? Lily asked rushing to my side. The GM from before was sitting next to the fireplace. His eyes gazing at me. Ly was sleeping in his little bed.
Yeah. Im fine. I reassured her. I started to use Heal on my wounds. I stared at my hands. Today I got lucky. During my battle with Lily I got lucky. And the trick I used in the battle with Luke wont work again. Im weak.
As night pushed the sun away the house was still except for Lily and the other Gm, who I found was Aaron, talking downstairs. I stared into the night sky. I needed to get stronger. But since I traded in my 3rd job powers I would need to start over with a different job. But which? I carefully thought about each job and their power.
Sean what would you do in my shoes
? Wait! Sean! I could become a Bandit like Sean. I quickly thought over it. In the end I made up my mind. I would become a Bandit.
I slowly got out of bed and went to Ly. I gently shook him awake.
Ly. Im going to be gone for a few weeks. You stay here and look over Lily. I commanded.
I cant let you be by yourself. Ly protested.
Ill be fine. Tell Lily Ill see her in a few weeks. I said as I grabbed my bag and opened the window.
Why dont you tell her yourself? Ly asked.
Just do it. I said as I climbed out the window. I jumped to the ground and ran off to the Taxi Stop. I called for a Taxi and asked to be taken to Kerning. He didnt notice my scar and just started to drive.
I stared out the window. The stars glittered in the sky. Ill see you guys soon.
Hope this chapter lived up to you guys’ standards of my previous chapters.
