When I woke up I was laying a bed. I was laying in my bed, and faintly I could hear voices. This was a very soft sound, but I could recognize Nora’s voice. “He’s hurt. I thought gods couldn’t be hurt” she said swiftly. There was another voice, a voice that I recognized too. My father. “I know, the wound had to be made by a sworce dagger.” I sat up in the bed, and I looked down to see Castor, and Pollux standing there. “Hey, where’s mommy?” Smiles spread across their faces, “Daddy! Daddy!” They screamed as jumped onto me. I wrapped my arms around them, “I missed you too.” I heard footstep coming near the bed, and I looked up to see Nora smiling. “I see you’re feeling better” she said as she came to sit beside me.
I looked around the room, there was something different about it. I looked at Nora, “Something’s different, what is it?” She laid down, “Your father put up a barrier around the house.” “Hey you guys can you get off of daddy” I asked the twins. They rolled off me, and I slowly got to my feet. I lifted my shirt to see a scar on my stomach, “How did you?” She smiled, “I didn’t your father did. It took a lot of power but he closed it.” I walked over to the window to see a black barrier around the house. “I put up a barrier before, it must have been shattered?” She nodded as the twins ran out of the room, “You shattered it.” I ran my fingers through my hair, “Theres so many things we don’t have answers to. Like the metronome.” I turned to Nora who was sitting up now. “Iron, I know the answer to the metronome” she said as she stood up. She made her way over to me, “I’m the answer.”
What was she talking about? She’s not the holder of the metronome. I put my hands on each side of her face, “Sweetie what are you talking about?” Tears started pouring from her eyes, “I know I should have told you this before all of this started, but I was afraid.” I shook her head from side to side, “Just tell me already baby.” Her dark eyes starred into mine, and then she began to speak. “My mother was the holder of the metronome, when she died it went to me.” I kissed her, “why would you be afraid to tell me that?” She shrugged as a smile spread across her face. I wiped the tears away with my thumbs, “You can tell me anything. Don’t ever think you can’t.”
I wrapped my arms around her, holding her close. She looked up at me, “Do you think the prophecy is going to come true?” I ran my hands through her hair, “I don’t know, but how things are going now It’s not falling far from the prophecy.” She pulled away from me, “I’m gonna go cook so lunch for us.” I watched as she left me in the room, and I looked out the window at the afternoon sky. “Iron” a voice said from behind me. I turned to see Arrow standing there, and he looked more horrible than he had did before. “What do you have for me” I asked crossed my arms. “Well, Maliki is planning something big. He’s been killing none stop.” The entire room fell black, and the smell of blood returned. The Creepers. “She’s dead. She’s dead Anubis.” I shifted turning to see one of the creepers from before.
“How about you turn the lights back on.” The lights came on quickly to reveal all of them, and when I say all. I mean all. I shifted back into human form, “Sekhmet is dead?” The nodded all at the same time, “When?” “Yesterday” Arrow responded. I ran my fingers through my hair, “Why are you here then” I asked them. The began to kneel, “We don’t have a master anymore. We want to serve you.” I looked at all of them, “Go to the under cavern below the basement. They nodded and one by one they began to disappear. I turned to Arrow, “What else did you find out?” He cleared his throat, “You’re on his kill list. He’s trying to take over the world.”
I nodded, “Okay go back in, report back to me when you can.” He disappeared as Nora walked back in the room, “Iron, H. here.” My father walked in slowly, and stopped beside Nora. Nora smiled at him and made her way out closing the door behind her. “Hey dad, what brings you back?” He looked me up and down, “Tell me how you got hurt. I know you went into the angel territory Nora told me that.” I swallowed, “It was Hezus.” My father looked a little confused, “You’re brother, Nora said it was him too. Are you sure it was your brother?” I nodded, “Positive dad” I responded. He started to shake his head, “Thats not possible.” “Why not” I asked as he walked closer to me. “How can I say this? You’re brother has been dead since you’ve been two years old.” I stepped back a little, “What?”
