My Name is None short for No one but I know that I am a someone that has to save the world but now Heflin, my new found sister, is telling me about my past. Also I am starting to question Arrow's remarks and disigions. Can I keep the peace and for once be the someone that has done something to keep the past and save the future?

23. section 23

“I think we need a rest.” Flim chimed as we were at the entrance of the cav. The sun was starting to set and I know after a few days of running around between planning and escaping the holds I had become tired myself, and famished with hunger and thirst. I sat down on the grass while Heflin gave way to her old antics that I wish she shouldn’t had.

“We have to get going who knows what kind of spies are on our tails!”

I stood quickly thinking that she was being irrational again. My mind was not having a good moment as I could feel my sword returning since I had it disappear earlier. I wondered why she had made that remark but I wasn’t going to have her, or anyone else, killed with exhaustion.

“We need our rest as well Heflin.” I said and then that sentence started another argument between us, I thought that we were past the part of arguments every moment but I am unfortunately wrong.

“And then what? Give them time to hunt us? Nell why are you giving them a golden opportunity?” She yelled and I did not understand why she is insisting on calling me Nell.

“Why do you keep calling me Nell? It’s None!” I yelled and we were both at each other’s throats.

“Because that is your true name!” She yelled and then backed off, looking like she just noticed that she offended me.

“What do you mean?” I asked, quieter than the normal tone of voice. I was starting to get confused that she was holding back something that I needed to know.

“Nell is what you were born with take the name and do good because you are not None, you are someone.” She said to me and I was baffled that she would see thought me to where she saw the meaning behind the name I have chosen.

“How did you?” I asked and I was surprised that she was finishing my sentence.

“See right though it? I should now sis when you were in the hospital, holding facility or whatever we are calling it now, showed me that you were None but you had changed to a Someone. That someone is the sister that I remember, Nell. I thought I lost you but when I heard from Arrow that you were back I felt thankful and ashamed that I was part of the squad that was supposed to kill you and now getting back at our dad felt like it was something that was supposed to happen.” She said and it didn’t make sense to me as I was starting to settle into the idea of switching my name again.

“What do you mean?” I asked and she settled right next to me while the others were gathering around us. The lost faces that were staring at me was not a nice thing to have at the moment but was in a good thing that they are listening.

“I mean why are you hiding behind a depressing name when you can change what your old name was to where it can say that gifted can fight back to change the world.” Heflin explained and I knew she was right. I knew that I was the profit and he name I would be remembered as None and what does that say other than she thought that she was a No One which she wished that she could be someone or that she was No One that someone didn’t want which I all of a sudden I didn’t want to have tied to me.

I had a tough decision to make on what I want to do. I wasn’t ready to change my name again but I didn’t want to be the saddened girl that is remembered that way because a name can mean everything in history. “I am keeping the name None for now but I will consider your suggestion sister.” I stated and was happy that I managed to knock off a few munities to rest which was my goal.

“I think we had stayed here enough we better get back to the campsite, I think Gweeno will like to see the gifted.” I got up and went to the entrance and let everyone come in before me as Heflin took the front. Before I went inside the tunnel I looked around and I thought I heard some ruffling from far in the distance but I wrote it off as some poor lost animal until I remembered there isn’t any animals anymore in this world.

I started to look around and came up short. I knew that I was going to have to watch my back as I turned to go back into the tunnel. I was watching my back every step of the way like I had the hunch to do but I ignored it without knowing what was behind that noise as we made our way back without another hitch or reminder of the sound.
