“A Void of Dark and Light”
This story begins with a mixed black, white, Hispanic, Indian boy named Will who was five feet nine, 169 pounds, and a slim, round-headed, light, tan, skinned boy who was born with a special ability. He could control the darkness using it however he saw fit. Will had full control of his special ability, but his ability was weak. He lived with his father, David in a suburban neighborhood near New York City. Will’s mother left David when he was born. He went to Monroe High School with his best friend, Scott, who was five feet seven, with a short hair-cut, kind of chunky, with a blue hoodie and dark-blue army boots.
Early Tuesday morning, Will awakened from a dream he been having ever since he turned nine years old, about a young pallid, angel-looking girl he had never met before. When the girl appeared in his dreams, she was warning him about some strange events that were supposed to happen to him in the near future. Then she went in to kiss Will, but she faded away by the darkness of his room that awakened him. He got up from his black sheets covered bed in his cerise, pajamas and rushed to the bathroom to take his shower. He put on his clothes and rushed out of his room to the kitchen, to find David sitting at the kitchen table, in a eggshell white dress shirt, a four, buttons, blue, blazer, blue dress pants, and black gator dress shoes. eating two pieces of whole-wheat toast and drinking a white mug full of coffee. “Come eat some breakfast with me, son?” asked David.
Will was about to walked out the front door. “I can’t because I’m already late for school, plus I’m not hungry.” answered Will in his grey wool hooded coat, black, printed, designed, shirt, dirty blue jeans, and tan, white, sneakers.
“You need to eat some breakfast, son. Come sit down next to me.”
“Oh Okay, I will have a little breakfast with you.” Will dropped his dark, grey, double, straps, backpack and went to the cabinet to get a medium-size blue plate. He put one piece of toast on the plate, walked to the kitchen table, and sat across from his father. “Don’t you want something to drink with your piece of toast?” Will got from the table, found a shot glass and filled it with apple juice from the refrigerator. He went back to the kitchen table, sat down, and started to take a bite of his toast, until he glanced at the brown, trim, squared, clock above David. Quickly he got up from the table, picked up his heavy backpack, ran out the front door, down the steps, and across the street to the bus stop. He waited fifteen minutes until he saw the number 88 bus pull up. When the bus pulled up closed to the edge of the sidewalk, the thick, red, lipstick, dark, skinned, navy blue, uniformed wearing female bus driver pulled the lever to open the clear glass door. Will hopped on the bus and found that most of the seats were filled. He walked toward the back of the bus and sat with an elderly Spanish woman. After only one stop, the woman got off the bus, leaving Will with the seat. Will moved over to the window seat, since he liked to look at the people walking and rushing to work.
After a few more stops, Scott got on the bus and walked toward Will. He took off his crimson colored backpack before he sat down next to his best friend. “How was your morning?”
“It was kind of crazy. My father wanted me to eat breakfast with him for once, but I ran out of there like a dog was chasing right behind me.”
“Wow, that’s real messed up, how you are acting towards your dad!”
“I really didn’t want to do that to him, but I already told him that I couldn’t eat because I was going to be late.”
After thirty-four minutes, the bus arrived at the school. “Last stop, Monroe High School.” yelled the driver as she pulled up to the corner in front of the school’s classical beige, bricked, and stoned building Everyone got up from their seats, got off the bus, and started walking to the entrance of Monroe High School. Will and Scott went inside to their run-down, long-lasting, cobalt, lockers to put some of their books away. The first bell rang for all the students to get to their first period classes. “See you in bio class?” asked Scott.
“Yeah, most definitely.” Will then went upstairs to his African-American Literature II class. He sat at his favorite desk in the back of the classroom. As the second bell rang the young, pallid skinned, trim, but curvesome, in her power, blue, jeans, girl from Will’s dreams walked into the room and sat next to him.
“Hey.” said the girl as she stared yawning into his eyes.
“Hey.” responded Will as he turned to look into her eyes, the teacher walked into the classroom with leather, chestnut, colored, suitcase. He put the suitcase on his coco-colored, desk, opened the suitcase up to start his lecture.
After an hour of lecture, the first bell rang for the class to be over Will got up from his desk. The girl got up from her desk a moment after Will and walked over to him.
“What is your name?” she asked.
“My name is Will.”
“Hi.” “What is your name?” The curvesome, trim, pallid, semi-midsize girl in her tight, power, blue, jeans, mocha colored scandals, showing off her small, petite, coral painted toes and feet running out of the classroom without telling him her name. He tried to run after her, but she was too fast. Will rushed downstairs and through the hallways to get to his gym class. He ran through the gym’s doors and ran down the boys’ locker room stairs to get to his locker to change into his musky, smoky, sweat suit pair of gym clothes. After he changed clothes, he ran upstairs, back through the door, and ran to his assigned warm-up spot to sit down.
The second bell rang Mr. Bolts, a lofty, willowy, light, cherry, hair, wide eyes, in white, tiny, gym shorts, and t-shirt started the class. “Today is free day. You can play some basketball, you can jog around the outside of the gym’s lines, and you can jump rope as long as you stay in the gym.”
Yes sir” yelled one of his students.
After about twenty minutes of Mr. Bolts leading the class in warm-ups, all the boys in the class followed Mr. Bolts into his office to get two orange basketballs to play a big game of Rough going before time ran out. As the boys were playing, Will had twelve points, as did another boy named Major, a hard, beefy, shaped, olive, eyes, a pretty boy in olive, green, baggy, wool, sweat suit As Major was about to score his winning shot, Will closed his eyes to make the room fall into pitch darkness. After a second, the lights turned back on and the ball was rolling free. He ran to the ball, picked it up, dribbled down the court, and shot the three-pointer to win the game.
“It’s time to change back into your regular clothes.” yelled Mr. Bolts. All his students ran down to their lockers.
“Good game.” said Will.
“Yeah, good game.” responded Major as he ran to the locker room.
Will was the last person in the gym walking slowly down the stairs with his head down. He felt bad for using his ability to cheat in the game. When he reached his locker, he changed back into his regular clothes, ran up the stairs, through the gym to the lunchroom, to buy a bottle of orange juice before the second bell rang for his third period French class that was on the fourth floor of the school. Will rushed to the elevator, right around the corner from the lunchroom and jumped onto the elevator before the doors closed. On the fourth floor, Will walked off the elevator and saw the curvesome, trim, pallid, semi-midsize golden, blonde, hair, shimmering hazel, eyes, in her tight, power, blue, jeans, mocha colored scandals, showing off her small, petite, coral painted feet girl from his dreams walking toward the same classroom he was walking to. Will stopped for a bit to wait for the girl to go into the room and to let Mr. Arch pass him. As Mr. Arch walked past, he said. “Will you’d better hurry up to class before the second bell rings.”
“Oh, I just had to stop to tie my shoe laces.” responded Will as he bent down to tie his right shoe.
“How is this girl from my dreams real, and why does she keep following me to my classes? I have to find out soon because this girl is freaking me out!” He continued on to his French class. Seconds later the second bell rang and Will was already in the classroom, about to sit right next to the girl from his dreams. As Will pulled out his French book, she said. “Hey Will.”
“Hey, what is your name?”
“It is time to learn how to speak French, not time to talk in my class, Will.” said Mr. Arch as he was writing a long French word on the chalkboard.
“I’m sorry, Mr. Arch. It will not happen again.”
“It better not happen again.”
“Can we talk after class?” whispered Will to the girl. The girl didn’t answer him she just kept taking notes that Mr. Arch was writing on the chalkboard. After class, the girl grabbed her pure white, single, straps, backpack and tried to run out of the classroom once more, but this time Will was prepared to chase after her. She made her way into the girls’ bathroom before he could catch up with her. “Why is that girl always running from me? She never did that in my dreams.” He walked down another set of stairs to meet Scott in front of the lunchroom. After two minutes of waiting they got into the lunch line to get some food. Scott and Will grabbed two baskets filled with chicken tenders and curly fries, two plastic containers filled with green salads, and two bottles of water. When Scott got to the cash register. “Hey, bud; can you do me a favor? You got me on lunch today?” asked Will.
“Yeah, I got you, but you owe me.”
“Thanks, I’ll pay you back tomorrow.” Scott pulled out his black wallet from his pants pocket to take out a ten dollar bill to pay the lunch lady. Once the lunch lady placed the bill into the cash register, they walked away from the line to the condiments table to get some napkins and to put some ketchup on their fries. They sat at a circular lunch table that was way in the back of the crowded lunchroom. Will saw the same curvesome, trim, pallid, semi-midsize, golden, blonde, hair, shimmering, hazel, eyes, moist, thin, lips, in her tight, power, blue, jeans, mocha colored scandals, showing off her small, petite, coral painted feet girl who had been following him around all mooring walked in the lunchroom. . “Why does this chick keep following me around, just saying hi to me, but when I asked for her name, she runs away from me like she was scared?” said Will.
“Who are you talking about?”
“She is over there, about to stand in the lunch line.”
“Oh okay, is she wearing a white sleeveless blouse, squeezed in power, blue, jeans, with her blonde hair in a bow?”
“Yeah, that is her, and she’s also the one that keeps staring over here at me.”
“Damn that is a beautiful stalker.”
“Yeah, I know she is, but that shit is really getting on my nerves. She just said hey to me, and then she ran off when I tried to get to know her more.”
“The best advice I can give you is to give her some time to warm up to you.”
“How would you know what goes on in a girl mind, because you haven’t been with a girl since elementary school.”
“I’ve been reading this book I brought called “10 Things Women Have on Their Minds.”
“Wow, that’s funny, but it still won’t help you get a girl.”
“You think you’re funny with your jokes, but you’ll see one day.” responded Scott as the first bell rang for fifth period.
“Fifth period already!” said Will as he got up from the table to throw his empty basket, container, and bottle away.
“Yeah, time for bio class.” responded Scott as he threw his garbage away too.
Scott and Will went back to the table to grab their backpacks and headed to bio class. They entered the lab, sitting in their favorite seats. Mr. Dante started the class. “What chapter did we leave off on yesterday?”
“We were on chapter twelve yesterday.” answered Major.
After a boring lecture, Mr. Dante said. “Class is over. Make sure you study for your fourth exam which is a week away.”
“It’s time to go home.” said Scott.
“I don’t like bio class, seriously.” said Will.
As Will rushed to his locker, he saw the curvesome, trim, pallid, semi-midsize, golden, blonde, hair, shimmering, hazel, eyes, moist, thin, lips, in her tight, power, blue, jeans, curly, blouse, mocha, colored scandals, showing off her small, petite, coral painted feet girl again, standing right next to his locker. “Hey, Will.”
“What do you want?”
“Just come here, please?” asked the girl as she gave him a long, alluring stare into his big, brown eyes with a grin.
“The girl with no name can actually say more than one word.” He asked her. “Now what do you want?’”
“Nothing but this.” said the girl as she give Will an anon, kiss. After a few seconds of kissing, she said. “I need you to come save my people.” She pushed him away, enough to run down the hall, down another set of stairs.
Will made off after her. “What are you talking about saving your people?”
The girl stopped right before she opened up the school’s signed exit door, but she didn’t turn around. She stood there. “I will see you soon.” She ran through the door and Will made off after her once more, but when he got through the doors, she was nowhere in sight as if she faded away. He walked back inside; back to his locker opened the locker and grabbed his other books.
“What happened to your girl?” asked Scott.
“She disappeared again.”
“At least you know what she wants.”
“Yeah, let’s go home; I have a lot on my mind.”
Scott picked up Will’s backpack and handed it to him. They walked out of the school, down the sidewalk, and stood at the bus stop to catch the number 88 bus to get back home. On the bus, Will and Scott didn’t say anything to each other. Will was sleepy enough to be looking out of the window, seeing a dark vision of people doing strange things like giving praise to the darkness. “Why am I seeing this?”
Scott looked out the window, and he did see the same dark vision of the people in the window as if he had the same special ability as Will. “What is going on here, Will? Why can I see what you see?”
“I don’t know, Scott. Maybe it has something to do with that girl.”
“That is your girl-friend and your special ability. I don’t need any strange things happening to me!” responded Scott as he moved away from Will to an empty seat near the back exit of the bus. The dark vision in the window faded away in a cloud of darkness, and a flash of light appeared.
“Will, it’s time to get off the bus!” yelled Scott as he was walking off the bus.
“Hold on, I’m coming.” responded Will.
“Did you see that vision in the bus’s window?” “No, I didn’t see anything at all. Just some people walking down the street, going to work.” answered Scott.
“Oh, damn, that flash of light must have erased Scott’s memory.” They walked to Will’s house and went inside. They dropped their backpacks on the living room floor and got two bottles of velvet colored water to drink. They sat at the kitchen table. “Would you get my backpack for me?” asked Will.
“I’ll get it for you, lazy.” answered Scott as he walked back into the living room to get their backpacks, to start doing their homework. He walked back into the living room, picked up their backpacks, walked back into the kitchen, and placed hung the backpacks on the back of their chairs. They unzipped his pack and grabbed their biology text-books to start studying for their exam. After they finished their homework, Scott’s mom picked him up from his house. As Scott walked out to get into his mother’s metallic, painted four, wheels car. “See you tomorrow?”
“Yeah, of course you’ll see me tomorrow.”
“All right then.”
Will walked back into the house to take some left over spaghetti and meatballs out of the refrigerator from last night’s dinner. He microwaves it for four minutes and brought it to the glass coffee table in the living room. Picking up the remote, he turned the TV on to watch his favorite television shows as he ate dinner. After eating, he walked upstairs to his room to go to bed. As Will slept the night away, he dreamed about the girl once more. This time, Will actually had a conversation with her about what she asked him. “Please save my people.” The curve some, trim, pallid, semi-midsize, golden, blonde, hair, shimmering, hazel, eyes, moist, thin, lips, in her, half, harp, roses filled crown, short, clear, cloths, wrapped around her body like a primordial, Greek, dress, high, below, her knees guards trim in a brown, leather, mocha, colored scandals, showing off her small, petite, coral painted feet girl appeared out of a depriving of his sight white light. “Hey, Will.”
“Hey, whoever you are.”
“I’m sorry that I haven’t told you my name yet. I had to get you to think of me again, to dream about me right away.”
“Okay, but you still haven’t told me your name.”
“My name is Yamane. I’ve been following you because I need your help to save my people from the ultimate darkness that will soon consume your world.”
“Who are your people?”
“My people are the light civilization. They are in trouble because the ultimate darkness that my people were protecting from the dark civilization is now on the loose, spreading true evil all over the world, growing unstoppably stronger.
The dark civilization wants to control the ultimate darkness, to continue the world on its destructive, iniquitous path. You are the only person that has the abilities to defeat the ultimate darkness and the dark civilization for good.”
“What are you saying to me?”
“The dark civilization wants to control your mind, because you are the only person that can stop them.”
“You need me to be a hero of your civilization? Cool!!”
“You have a strong will-power to never give up, to keep doing your best on every task. Now I must go back to my home to make sure that the rest of my people are still safe from the darkness.”
“Will I ever see you again?” asked Will. As Yamane moved in close to give him a kiss on his lips, she dwindles into the blinding white light. Will woke up with a stunned look on his face. His bedroom was in pitch blackness, he could see through the darkness, but only a little bit. He got up from his bed and walked up to his window to look out of it. He saw all of his neighbors in dirty clothes, digging a deep pit. “Oh shit, I’m too late to save the world.” Will turn from the window from the terrible scenery he saw. He turned back and looked out his window once more. Only this time he saw nothing outside except the sun shining and a few kids riding their bikes in the streets of his neighborhood.
“Whoa I guess what I saw was just a warning that I don’t have much time to find where the dark civilization is hidden.” Will showered and dressed. Then he walked out of his room, down the stairs, to the kitchen and got a fresh apple out of the refrigerator to take with him to Queens, New York. He walked out the front door, not realizing that David wasn’t sitting at the kitchen table to tell him to sit down and eat breakfast. “He’s probably still sleeping in his bed.” Will thought as he locked the front door. Walking to the bus stop, people were looking at him with disturbed frowns, because he was going in and out of the darkness visions. At the bus stop, he sat down on the bench, waiting for the number 48 bus to come and take him all the way to Queens. After about forty minutes, the bus arrived. When Will got on the bus, he took a seat in the back, and the bus pulled away from the corner. Will started to doze off on the long bus ride to the borough of Queens.
“What’s up, Yamane.”
“I need to tell you something important.”
“What is it Yamane?”
“The last time we spoke, I secretly gave you some of my light abilities to help you defeat the ultimate darkness.”
“Thanks, that will make my ability even more powerful.” responded Will staring into Yamane’s eyes as she dies away into the dark color scheme of the inside of the bus.
“Last stop Queens.” Will awoke from his dream to see the bus driver walking toward him. “Hey, kid, time to get off the bus.”
“Sorry. I fell asleep.”
As he got off the bus, the driver said. “Have a good day, kid.” Once Will was gone, the bus driver spoke into a listening device that was plugged into his left ear. “Will is coming your way. Be ready.”
“Yeah, I’m always ready.”
He walked down a crowded sidewalk, only to be stopped by another disturbing dark vision. He saw darkness’s slaves who were not obeying their rules being thrown into pits of fire, snakes, and lions. These slaves were examples of what happened when people disobeyed the ultimate dark civilization’s commands. Will tried to ignore the vision; and then a bright, rendering of sight of light consumed the darkness, to show what was about to happen to him. The light vision showed, Will that he was about to get jumped by Hic, one of the elite guards for the dark civilization. Hic, a brawny, tall, tone, pale, skin, color, saggy, scars all over his face, no eyeballs in his eyes socket, wearing a long top hat on top of his wavy, dark, hair coming down below his neck, a satin patched uniform jacket, a crimson, bowtie and a pair of satin, color, shoes. He wears two gold handles point forty-fives holsters inside of his jacket. The vision continued with Will fighting Hic off, but he was soon joined by the bus driver, Shrink, another elite guard for the dark civilization. Shrink is a minuscule, tan, skinned, brunette, n low, brim, yellow, trim, black, hat, a single, gold, goggle, eye, patch lying on her right eye, a large, antique, silver, mouth piece covering her bottom half of her face, a blouse, wool, riding, pants, and long silk boots. They grabbed Will, took him into an alley, and put him into the trunk of their car. The light vision faded back away into the render of light. He stopped walking down through the crowded sidewalk, turned around, and started to run across the street. He ran in the opposite direction once he reached to the other side of the street. Then he saw a small grocery store and ran inside to hide until Hic and Shrink left the area. Hic got on his listening device. “Will is not coming my way; I don’t see him.”
“He must have figured out that we were going to kidnap him somehow.” said Shrink.
“He must be hiding somewhere.” said Hic looking through the crowded sidewalk.
“If you know that, then go look for him now! I’ll be on my way.” Shrink walked out of the alley and saw him go into the small grocery. Will snapped his fingers, which made a thick, bleak, cloud of fog float into the middle of the street, where Shrink was walking. As she got lost in the fog, Will ran out of the market and down the sidewalk through a crowd, who were also lost in the fog. After a few minutes, the fog disappeared and Shrink continued to walk to the store. She entered, walked to the back, and saw that Will wasn’t in the store. Shrink said into her listening device. “Will has escaped me!”
“It’s okay, Shrink, we’ll get the tool next time.” responded Hic. Will continued running through the crowded sidewalks of Queens. Another flash of light appeared revealing another vision, showing him the next place to search for the dark civilization, in the middle of Penn Station surrounded by a grocery store, a terminal entrance, and a newspaper stand. Will ran all the way down the street to a nearby bus stop. He needed to go back home, to see if his new light ability could be used at the same strength and at the same time as his dark ability. Throughout the whole day, he continued to have the dark and light visions of the near future. Two hours later, he entered his home and saw David sitting in his favorite chair. “Hey, you are off from school early?”
“Yeah, I had a half day.”
“Isn’t it kind of early for your school to have half days in the first month of the school year?”
“My principal announced that the school was having a half day this morning during my first period class that they are having an important faculty meeting in the early afternoon.”
“Oh okay, good for you.”
“Thanks, I guess. Why are you home so early today?”
“I’m taking a long lunch break, and I didn’t want to buy anything, so I decided to come home to make a homemade BLT sandwich with the works. Do you want me to make you a sandwich?”
“No thanks, I had a big lunch. I’m going up to my room to start doing my homework.”
“I’ll see you later on tonight?”
“Yeah, if I’m not sleep.” responded Will as he looked straight into his father’s eyes to make sure he believed him.
As Will walked up the stairs to his bedroom, he saw another dark vision of his father being trapped inside their house by the ultimate darkness spreading all over his soul, eventually going crazy from being trapped in the house, and later betraying his son by leading him to the two elite guards.
As his dark vision swallowed up in the darkness of his bedroom, he continued to walk to his bedroom, where he practiced with his light and dark abilities. The next day, Will was sitting at the bus stop, waiting for the number 33 bus to come to take him to Penn Station, to see if the dark civilization was hiding there. After fifty-five minutes, the bus finally arrived, and Will sat in the rear. At Penn Station, Will got off the bus and walked up the steps to the main entrance. He walked through the terminal that he saw in his light vision. Once he saw the terminal, the store, and the newspaper stand that were in his light vision, he walked right up to the newspaper stand. Another lucidity of light appeared to show him yet another vision of Hic and Shrink walking toward him while he was standing near the newspaper stand. The vision showed Will being chased by Hic and Shrink. It seemed like Will was getting away, but he got trapped by another elite guard of the dark civilization named Bulgy. Bulgy, a super, heavyweight, structure, with symbiotic tattoos painted all over his upper body, in a white shirt covered by a leather, black, apron, black, leather, gloves, wielding a semi-automatic, twenty-barrels, covert, scope, rife. Then they took him away to their car.
The vision ended with a dim light. Will ran away from the newspaper stand, through a crowd of people, back through the main entrance. With a thought, Will made all the lights in the building turn on at their brightest, making the lights explode in an instant. He ran across the street to chase after the number 33 bus. After three minutes of chasing the bus, the driver finally stopped the bus in the middle of traffic and opened the door to let him get on. Finally able to catch his breath, Will thought. I must be getting close to the dark civilization’s hideout, because every time I’ve gone to these locations, I always have light visions showing me that I’m about to walk in a trap. I have to keep trying to find their hideout before she is destroyed.
The next four days, Will continued his quest to find the dark civilization’s hideout, to stop them and the ultimate darkness from taking over the world. On a Friday, the last day of his four-day quest, Will was in his living room, sitting on the floor, watching television. A luminous blink of light appeared in the living room, and another vision showed Will the next place to search for the dark civilization, deep in the woodland areas of Central Park. As the blink of light dematerialize, Will put his sneakers on and ran to the bus stop, sitting down on the bench under the light from the lamppost. After three minutes, the number 15 bus arrived to take him to Central Park. After an hour and ten minutes, the driver stopped four blocks from the entrance to Central Park.
Will started walking down the empty sidewalks to the entrance of Central Park. When he got there the lampposts on the sidewalk went out, and he received another dark specter. Will saw a slave with a sign strapped to his chest saying. “Central Park is closed forever ha-ha-ha-ha!” The specter faded away to reveal that Central Park was under construction. “Damn it, I know this is the place where the civilization is hiding, but I can’t get in there since the park is under construction.” As he started to walk away from the entrance almost giving up on his task to find the hideout, he started walking away from the park.
At the corner, he saw Hic and Shrink walking out of the entrance to the park. He saw them out of the corner of his eye, walking out behind him, but Will didn’t run. He realized that Hic and Shrink might notice him walking down the sidewalk. He jogged beyond some bushes, squatting down to keep from being seen. As they walked past the bushes, he moved around to the other side of the bushes. Once they walked far away enough from the park, he ran from beyond the bushes, back down the sidewalk and through the entrance to the park. Will was going to the large lake he saw in his light vision. Once there, he looked across the lake to the huge woodland area of the park. A flash of illumined light appeared to show Will another manifestation. This time, the manifestation showed him exactly where the dark civilization’s hideout was located, deep in the huge woodland area.
“Thank Yamane.” The glister of light disappeared as he ran around the lake to get to the huge woodland area. While running through the deepest part of the woodlands, he heard a blaring; noise like someone was following him, the sounds of twigs and sticks breaking. He continued to rush to the end of the woodlands, but with his last step, Will was pushed back by a paramount force, far away into a gigantic oak tree. He landed on the tree with the right side of his body. Lying on the ground with his ribs broken, he tried to get up, but the impact kept him on the ground. Will realize that this force was actually the ultimate darkness he soon saw that it was spreading all over the woodland area, all through the park, and into the city. He tried again to get himself up from the ground, leaning on the tree for support, but he ended up sliding right back down to the ground, where the darkness was strewing all over his body. Will’s eyes were closing into a coma, when suddenly he awakened safely back in his bedroom. “What the hell is going on here?” He got up from his bed, opened his bedroom door, and went down stairs to find David sitting at the kitchen table, eating breakfast. “Hey, son, do you want to eat breakfast with me before you go to school today?”
“Yeah, I’ll most definitely eat breakfast with you.” answered Will. He put some very hot grits and home fries onto a plate. Then he picked a pear and a bottle of water out from the refrigerator.
As Will started eating, he saw his father staring at him with a vast smile on his face. “Why are you staring at me like that?”
“It’s nothing, son. I’m just glad that you actually want to spend some time with me, since you have been busy at school with studying.”
“I do want to spend time with you, but you are not there when I need you.”
I’m sorry for not being there when you needed me, but you have to understand that I have to work to pay the bills, to put clothes on your back and food on the table.” David got up from the kitchen table to walk upstairs to his bedroom.
“Hold on, I’m sorry. Dad.’ yelled Will, getting up from the table. Then he saw Hic, Shrink, Bulgy, and other elite guards of the dark civilization trying to break down the front door to get Will. He ran after David before he closed his bedroom door. “Dad, let me in. Please hurry. I need to talk to you, please.” As he waited for David to come to the door, he used his light ability to turn on all the lights in the house to keep all the guards from breaking in. After two minutes of waiting, the bedroom door started to open on its own, Will walk in to see that the paramount darkness was strewing out all over David’s body. He ran to his father and immediately used his light ability, putting his finger on his father’s chest to stop the darkness from consuming his father. After holding him for a few seconds, the darkness stopped spreading all over his body. Will took his finger off of his chest, and David blacked out for several minutes.
When David awakened, Will picked up his father from the cold, wood floor to help him walk out the bedroom with his arm wrapped around his shoulders. David and Will reached his room, to hide from the optimum darkness and the elite guards. While being carried David pushed Will away from him. “I know that you have been lying to me about going to school. I know you have been skipping school to look for the dark civilization. I also know what you are, and that’s the reason I’ve been working late ever since your mother got sick and died. I mean, who wants their son to be a freak of nature, a loser? I hate you, and I wish you were never born!” yelled David as the darkness continued to spread through his body.
“Dad, I love spending time with you, and I know you don’t mean any of those things. You can fight the darkness. Just fight the darkness with your heart.” Will stood in the hall in front of his father, staring at him with tears coming from his eyes. David started walking slowly closer to Will with a devilish look on his face and his big strong hands going for Will’s throat. “Come on, Dad, you can fight the darkness. I know you can beat the darkness.” said Will, backing up into his bedroom.
“It is too late. I already have taken over your father’s mind, body, and soul. Now he is mines forever!” Will ran into his room, slammed, and locked the door. He rushed to the window while David tried to break down the door. He heard a deep, powerful voice throughout the house. “You need to come out of the house. We have this place surrounded. Just surrender now and we will stop spreading the darkness that is consuming your father.” hollered Shrink from the front yard of the house. Will realized that he had to escape the house. He ran to the front of his room, lined up with the middle of his window, and jumped through his window. Falling to the ground, and he landed on his feet with no pain at all. Will ran down an alleyway down a very long street that got longer and longer as he ran. He saw skyscrapers and buildings separating far away from each other. Suddenly he saw a monstrous, thick, inky cloud chasing after him, with a mischievous leer in the front of the cloud.
Will knew that the cloud was the ultimate darkness trying to consume his all. As Will ran for his life, he saw Yamane standing in the sky, reaching her hand out to him. He seemed to be getting closer and closer to Yamane’s hand, but the darkness caught him before he could touch her hand. Suddenly, Will awakened in a room from his nightmare with Nestor, the crazed leader of the dark civilization. Nestor is average sized, clean, bald, head, washed out skin, in mustard, striped circus, ring master jacket, same color leather gloves with mechanic monitors on each glove, camel colored pants, and shoes. He was sitting right in front of Will in a joystick control, carved design, wood, box cardinal matted wheelchair as Will was sitting in a small, plastic chair. He used his light ability to blind Nestor, to escape the room, running through the open door, down a dim, blue and white tinted glass hall of windows. Entering in the dark civilization’s city where he was surrounded by all the elite guards and all the dark citizens.
Will saw arrangements of vast skyscrapers compacted closed together with bridges connecting the other compacted skyscrapers that were across from each other. The city was underground under the woodland area and lake. The top of the city had a sealed oval roof that could open and close by a press of Nestor’s button. Hic and Shrink grabbed Will from behind to keep him from escaping again. They took him to the middle of the dark city and strapped him into a large, metal chair. Nestor placed a pair of brown goggles with some wires on them over his eyes. He turned on the goggles to force him to watch various images of violent acts, rapes, wars, explosions, and genocide. . Will struggled to keep his eyes closed; as Nestor stood next to the metal chair. “I told you that I would catch you, ha-ha-ha.” Will continued to watch the satanic images from the goggles, but then the images changed into one singular clip of a young, curvesome, light pale, black hair, short nose woman in an all-white nurse’s outfit holding a baby in an angled blue and white sheets bed hospital room, as she yelled at the top of her lungs to get the doctor to come in her room. The doctor faded in the room and Will’s ears started to boom in pain. The clip continued with the nurse telling the doctor. “This isn’t my son; you gave me the wrong boy.” The doctor looked at the baby’s eyes as he gave the baby a spank on his butt. The baby yelled and cried as the doctor looks at the nurse’s eyes. “This is your son, I mean, look at him, with his dark-brown. You two have the exact same eyes color, and I hope you realize that he looks just like you!”
“Are you sure this is my son?”
“Yes, I am sure. Just because your son is not like everyone else in the world does not mean you won’t be able to make him your own.”
“Thank you for your help. Doctor, I needed to hear those exact words.” responded the nurse as the doctor walked out the room. Will realized that the wicked clip was actually one of his memories of his mother, Donna, before she died from a mysterious disease in the same hospital.
The clip continued with his mother falling on the hospital floor almost to knocked over the plastic cradle that Will was sleeping in next to her bed. Donna bleed from her nose and mouth. “Your mother died after you were born. It is your fault. She couldn’t handle you and your dark ability when you were born.” announced Nestor.
“No! It isn’t my fault that my mother died from a mysterious disease. I had no control over my mother’s death.” said Will as he continued to struggle to break free from the chair.
“That is my point exactly, ha-ha-ha.”
The roof of dark city opened with a massive stream of, radiant, blinding, sterling, white, blaze coming from the light civilization. As the course of blaze was destroying all the elite guards, the dark citizens, and Nestor, the blaze was shining over Will, to help him gain some of his strength back. The courses of blaze help him try to break free from the metal chair. After a few minutes, Will finally broke free from the chair. He tried to run out of the city, but he couldn’t find the exit. Yamane appeared in the middle of the city, and he ran to grab on to her outstretched hand. Holding his hand Yamane glided out of the dark civilization’s destroyed city. As they floated up through the open roof top, out of the woodland area, and out of central park. “Thanks for rescuing me back there.”
“You’re welcome. Will, but I was just doing what my father told me to do.” responded Yamane as they landed right in front of the entrance to Central Park. Will tried to give Yamane a kiss on her lips, but she moved back.
“I have to give you all my light power to help you destroy the ultimate darkness.”
“Yamane, will I ever see you again?” asked Will as she started to glow brightly, draining all her light power into him.
“Yes, but only in your dreams.” answered Yamane as she wane away.
As Will watched her wane away in a flash of light, he saw floating in the sky, the huge, inky, thick cloud that is the ultimate darkness. He glided up to the darkness, which began shooting large bolts of degenerate lightning bolts at Will. He dodged every shot. Then the ultimate darkness grabbed him with crooked octopus-like tentacles, to keep him from dodging the degenerate bolts. Will combined his light and dark abilities together to shoot all the power out of the palms of his hands into a supreme stream of power. As he created a basketball-sized orb out of the supreme stream of power, he shot the ball into the mouth of the cloud. The ball moved to the middle of the cloud. As he stared into the darkness’s eyes, the ball of power started to expand, bigger and bigger, inside of the ultimate darkness. After a few seconds, the ball exploded making the darkness shatter into a billion pieces.
Will glide down on in the middle of a cracked street, he saw all the darkness that was spreading throughout the city disappears. a beam of light came from the now-clear blue sky shining, on Will. He ran and glided back home, landing right at the front door. He rushed inside and found David sitting at the kitchen table, eating breakfast “Hey, did you have fun sleeping over at Scott’s crib.”
“Yeah, I did.” answered Will, as he sat down at the kitchen table.
“Want to eat breakfast with me?”
“I would love to eat breakfast with you.” answered Will. His father got up from the table to fix Will a plate of food. As David sat back down, Will added. “Thanks, and I’m sorry for the way I’ve been acting. It’s just I miss hanging out with you.”
“It’s okay, son. Things are going to be better now.” responded David with a smile.
