3. The Doctor


     The next day, as the door slowly opened and the light gradually illuminated this hell hole.

    "Rise and shine, Logan, rise and shine. You can get out of here now. I almost think that you like this place, you sleep here more than you sleep in the dorm!” says Ms. Marie, while laughing like it was some kind of joke. 

   Oh well, I guess the booze is still running in her bloodstream. I was more concerned about Elizabeth. I didn't care what that old hag had to say. I was about to leave.

    "Hey, wait! before I forget, a man named Mr. Colt wants to see you. He also filed your release, so this may be your last day in here. He sure looks classy and rich, don't know why would he bother to adopt someone like you. Of all the other kids around, he chose the wrong package, that’s for sure. Well this room will surely miss your ugly mug! [LAUGH]" There she goes again with that sinister laugh.

    Knowing that I will be leaving Elizabeth’s side for good devastated me. I never felt such a feeling before it almost felt surprising, yet shocking for someone like me. I never thought that I would have such feelings for anyone. Still, I wanted to meet this mysterious man. I thought that maybe he holds the key to my past, and I wanted to know the real me. And so I went to meet him.

***

    At first glance, he was a good looking, middle aged man, wearing a black suit with a black hat decorated with a gray strip. As I sat down before him, I could sense a dark cold aura coming out of him, yet somehow it made me feel hot I was sweating all over. His presence was so intimidating and scary at the same time. Despite this feeling, I was somehow boiling with excitement. His eyes were navy blue, yet empty. No empty won't describe it looking at his eyes was like staring at the ocean, an infinite view, lost in the middle of nowhere. He was staring at me, his look was solid. I feared he would jump on me any second. His face gave no expressions at all, it was like he was still painting. He lowered himself towards my height. He was about my level.

    "Logan, I am your father," he said.

    Was I shocked? No. Was I lost? No. Happy? Absolutely fucking not. Instead, the first thing that came out of my mouth was:

    "No! You are not my father!" I replied.

    Mr. Colt smiled. I have never seen such smile, only a creature out of this world can have an expression like that.

    "Of course not, but you sure resemble your father boy," he said.

    "Why do you want to take me in? I don't know you and you don't know me!" I was wondering about his true intentions.

    "Well, you don't know me, yet. However, I do know you very well, your father entrusted me to take care of you once he is gone, so I let them put you in this orphanage until you grow up a little because well, no offense kid, but I don't like babies" he replied, being honest with that last phrase.

    Then, suddenly his whole expression changed, becoming much serious than before.  

   "The world we live in is no different from hell, there are those who are tortured by the fire, there are demons follow the chain of command, and of course...there is the devil himself," he said.

    He retained his position, I was so engulfed by his words my thoughts were all in shambles. However, his logic was somewhat similar to mine, despite being a 7 years old, I always thought of this world to be unjust and that it needs a radical change, not a savior, it's not about good or evil neither right or wrong, it's about what I want and what they want, and I want to be a harbinger of change, this world needs me. Lost in all my thoughts, I didn't know what to say. Then he looked at me directly with a piercing stare. I knew back then that whatever question he would ask of me, I must give an answer.

    "Now tell me, do you want to follow the rules like all these blind sheep? Or...do you want to be the one to write the rules for them?" he asked.

    For the naked eye, he was an ordinary man. For me, he was like an apostle his words touched the very depth of my soul. Right when I was going to give my answer, I was interrupted.

    "However, to do so you must become strong and you must adapt. You must become one with the crowd, you must blend in plain sight with humans and demons alike, without being anyone of them! You must become someone beyond human and demon, you must Evolve!" he said slowly.

    The burden of his words sank deeper inside my conscious as if my soul existence was resting on them. From then on, I decided that I don't have the past, there is only the present that I live in and the future that I wrote. Now, with the help of this mysterious man, I can crack my cocoon, I can fly! I can create my own world, for me and... for her. Right then, I knew what type of answer I shall give him.

    "Mr. Colt I..." I was interrupted

    "Mr. Colt is a name I made up for this meeting, you can just call me 'The Doctor'," he said.

    "Then, ‘Doctor’ my answer is...." I gave him my answer.

    I passed beside Elizabeth in the hallway while leaving.

    "Logan! Is it true? Are you really leaving for good?" she asked with a sad tone.

    "I will be leaving you right now, but I swear to you! I will forever protect you! I will make you see the beauty of this world again!" I replied.

    When I saw two little pearls came out of her eyes and fall all the way down her cheeks, I knew how happy she was hearing those words.

    "Before you leave, how was the sky last night?" She asked.

    "In the dark purple skies, all the sheep gathered right beside a mystical light. It was a full moon," I replied. Those were my farewell words.
