4. The Explosion
Nathan was coughing, stuck under a piece of crumpled ceiling. He was in pain. Jack on the other side of the room slowly got up and ran over to Nathan. He removed the piece of crumple ceiling of his younger brother with his power. 'Nathan climb on my back' Nathan obedily listen and follow Jack order. With Nathan on Jack's back, the both brothers adjust their eyes to understand what actually happening. Nathan thought to himself that just moments ago everything was normal.
Everything after that became a blur. He was on his brother's back one moment then he was with his Dad. Running. His leg was throbbing a lot. But he didn't want to stop. His body was scared. Shaking uncontrollable. There was no way to stop the shaking. His throat felt rough. No words was said between Nathan and his Dad. Although he has a billon of questions. The first one he wanted to ask was 'where's jack'. We walked what seemed like forever. Walking past the burned houses and dead bodies. Mr T collected children that were alone crying and pregnant women who seem half dead already. Nathan only knew Maxie and his twin out of all the children he collect. To every child he took he said 'don't worry this is your family' Nathan eyed all the children dad picked up. None of them was Jack. He went to touch his dad’s suit and pull it to gain his attention. 'Where's Jack' Nathan asked once he gained his father's attention. Mr T didn't say anything in respond to Nathan's question. All he did was looked at Nathan with sad eyes. 'He doesn't remember' Mr T thought. He looked behind him to all the small children. To think they has to suffer watching this nasty sight. He moved to a brown cottage and told the children and pregnant women to go ahead of him. They all did what he asked. Once they were all in Mr T locked the door and then moved the cabinet that was standing next to door in front of the door.
He took them down the stairs to the basement.
Mr T felt annoyed. The explosion, the killing, the screaming. He glance towards the children and has nothing to say to them. He felt he stole their chance to grow up peacefully. Although he didn’t cause this night to happen he felt responsibly. The only thing he felt was right was making these children live life in a lie.
He reasons to come to this cottage was that this cottage belong to someone special. Someone he felt would teach these children the save way to live. Once he reaches the basement to finds the guy he is looking for. A tall thin guy was sitting on a chair in front of a large door, a door which was the size of a three story house. ‘Father’ Mr T said simply, ‘I know’ Father answered back. ‘Is the portal ready’ Mr T said while holding Nathan’s hand very tight. The other children as well as the lady looked at the both older man with confused looks. The words ‘Portal’ makes them wonder how special this Father guy was. ‘Of course’ the father guy reply with a smile.
Mr T smiled and said pushing Nathan in front of him "That is my child, he is a specialist. These are other child I found on my way, and there is a" pointing at the women he help " pregnant women, she wants the baby name to be Luca ... She won't live long, so make sure the child do. Please look after them all. They are all special in their own way. Let them be the remanding Spetakers, teach then our and your ways. Let them changed our clan future. Watch them grown in to wonderful children. Let them help the human race. Let then grown up calling you father and’ Mr T paused, hearing the screaming and shouting outside. ‘Don’t tell them the truth till there ready’ and with that Mr T quickly hugged Nathan. Whispered something and left.
That was the last day Nathan would see him. The last day Nathan got that hug. The last day Nathan's father told him ‘smile’.
