Daisy, Daniel and Christopher are mourning at their friend's funeral. But then a sinister figure emerges from the shadows of their small town. After many strange events, Daisy and her friends are soon swept up into a mystery that no one could even begin to imagine. It's not long before they realise that the clock is ticking, and for something's, there's no time...


28. Part 2 - Chapter 28


"If we are gonna get there fast then we need to board," said Katie. How was that going to be possible?

"There's only one board." I stated. Something clicked and the board split itself in half. Katie looked proudly at the two boards hovering close to our feet. She looked up at me.

"It's an S type .6," I looked blankly back at her. "It's the latest board. It can split itself into 6." I had to admit that it was pretty awesome. The next bit was tricky. Riding. Katie saw my worried expression. Laughing, she knelt down next to the board I was supposed to ride.

"Ok, it's quite simple," she lifted my foot by the ankle and placed it on the board. "All you gotta do is put both feet on the board. Tilt the back to go and the front to stop. Bend your knees to go faster. That's probably all you need to know," she stood up and grinned. "Come on then, let's see those skills." I stood on it. It was surprisingly sturdy beneath my feet. Tilting forwards ever so slightly, it started to move. I realised that Katie hadn't taught me how to steer. I turned my foot left. I began to turn left. Wow.

"Wow, you're a natural. Soz, I forgot to teach you how to manoeuvre it, looks like you sussed it though." I practiced for 5 minutes before we hit the road. I was getting good at this.

We headed down the path. There was  a road that didn't use to be there. Then again, I hadn't seen anything that I recognised so far. A large round about came into view. This might be difficult. "Don't worry," Katie called, "all you gotta do this time is make a slow curve with your foot. By the way, we are the second turning." We turned. We left at the second exit. We where fine. It was a straight track from now to the town centre. "Race?" Katie asked. Before I had time to answer, she had started to speed off. I bent my knees as far as they'd go. I was gaining on her. I lifted one of my feet and sped straight past her.

I stopped. I looked around. Finally, some familiarity. The old memorial that I'd seen put up when Nathan's uncle died was still there. As was the village hall. There where differences though. The memorial had a slight glow to it and the hall was covered in spray paint. Over the door, it said 'Krentan boarding group.' Katie had caught up with me. "Come on," she said. "We gotta go meet my people." Walking up the village hall steps, she reached the door and pushed it open. Inside, the lights where blindingly bright. "Oh here," Katie said chucking me a pair of dark shades. I could hear a music beat in the background as I entered. "Come meet my fellow Krentans."

There must have been over 30 teens in there on their boards. It was the hovering version of my youth group. Katie boarded her way over to a guy with dreads in the corner. They did some complicated hand shake in greeting. After a minute, the boy left her side and disappeared from sight. He soon returned with a leather jacket in his arms. Katie beckoned me over. "Dan, this is..." started Katie handing me the jacket.

"Daniel," I corrected, I only let my friends call me Dan.

"Ok, Daniel, this is Jank, Jank, this is Daniel. Jank, we need everyone's attention please.

"Sure thing Kat." He said, pressing a button. Somewhere the music stopped and everyone turned to face the stage.

"You're up bro," she whispered and pushed me on stage.
