5. Life At Every Turn
As I lay there dreaming I go back to studying the different legacies. Many are like mine so it's hard to figure out what it is. It could be lumin but I don't have resistance to heat. What felt like minutes in my dream turned to be hours in real life.
Without a cepan this journey would be hard to go through. Of course I could always try to find the others that were sent here in that other ship. I am soon awaken from my dream by a gunshot in the distance. I call skippy and run as far and as fast as I could.
Although I realize that I am stronger than whatever it was I couldn't risk getting caught without a plan. As I was running I ran straight out of the woods and onto the side of a high way. Before I could do anything I see this world that I was pushed to for first time ever.
Seeing this world I had finally gotten a break, as I thought of a story to tell I walked down the highway. Finally a little red mini van pulled off to the side the passenger side window rolled down slowly. As I walk over to the window the driver says to asks me " what ya doin out here by yourself young one." It was an older lady probably in her sixties with a small elderly man behind the wheel.
I told her that I was list and that I didn't know what to do. She say and thought for a moment and said why don't you get in the back there and get out of this heat. Saying thank you I hopped into the back seat. The woman asked me all types of questions like, how I got out here to how old I was.
We pulled up into town and she dropped me off gave me some money and said she hopes that I do alright. Not knowing what to do I wondered around the town for a few hours. A nice couple about the age of the last helped me get a place to sleep for the night and some real food in my belly. With all these things happening skippy had no clue what to do so he stayed in my shirt the whole time keeping quite.
In the motel room I found a comfortable bed and I nice shower I had missed the warmth if the water, for weeks I had to bathe in the creek. After getting all clean I walked out the bathroom where I found skippy sitting I the bed. I plopped down next to him and said " well it's not home but it will have to do for now," staring back at me skippy just nodded.
I had gotten comfortable in the bed and slowly drifted off the sleep.
