The Last Battle

No one has done a Miss Peregrines Home for Peculiar Children Fanfiction so I'm the first. It's the last battle between Jacob Portman and his enemy the hollows and wights.

8. Chapter 7

The dining room was very much the same as Miss Peregrines but well…older.
After a few conversations with the new children it seems that they are kids from my time, just put in an older loop.
“The last of the older kids were either captured or killed.” Emily explained.
“That’s terrible.” Said Emma.
“It sure is.” I agreed. That’s when Hugh placed two jars of honey on the table.
“Anyone got a watch?” he asked.
“I do.” Said Lucas.
“Okay, time me.”
We all circled around him.
“Three, two, one!”
I still haven’t gotten used to seeing Hugh chug a jar of honey. It’s fascinating but strange. He does it so fast.
An empty jar slammed down on the table. “Done!”
“Amazing.” Said Millard looking at Lucas’s watch. “Three seconds flat.”
“How did you do that?” asked Sunny.
Hugh did a little bow. “It’s a talent.” He grinned. “But if you think I’m amazing, watch this.” He handed George the other jar of honey.
Moments later another empty jar was added to the table.
“2.55 seconds! It’s a new record!”
A chorus of cheers sprung to life. Hugh couldn’t’ve looked happier. He had found someone like him, possibly even better. But he wasn’t complaining.
“So when are we leaving to go get Miss Swallow?” said a young boy, Cameron.
Emma stood up. “Soon. Very soon.” She turned to me. “Jacob. Would you mind coming with me for a second?”
“Yeah sure.” I stood up and followed her out of the room.
“No snogging!” Maven called after us causing everyone to laugh.

“We can’t take everyone with us.” She said, looking down. “It’s too many.”
“I know. There’s what? 23?” I said estimating.
“25 including Radi and Addison. Oh and also Miss Peregrine.”
“That makes 26.” Lucky it was simple math. I’m hopeless.
“Yeah. We’ll have to choose a list of people. I just hope they don’t get upset.” She said sadly.
“Me too.”
