2. Chapter Two

Dad brings us into the office, where none of us have been in since mom has died. He grabbed his chair and pulled it out of the way, moved the rug and pulled out a floorboard. In the little space was a huge envelope that had, “To my dear children” on it with my mothers bubbly handwriting. Alex gasps and Sophia starts to cry again, but Kamis looks at the envelope with recognition. Does Kamis know whats going on? I decide to think about that later and put my arms around my 10 year old sister’s shoulders and watch Dad closes the floor board. When he was done he motioned again for us to follow him.

He leads us into the twin’s room, probably because it has lead around the walls so that someone can’t use x-ray vision and is sound proof, because the twins have super senses. Dad locks the door and he closes the vent. He and Kamis sit on the bed on the left side of the room, Alex's be I think, and us girls sit on the opposite bed. “Sophia, Alex, and Sarah.” Wait, no Kamis? I think when he pauses, “I have something to tell you about your mother’s side of the family. We, well, you are part of the ride family. In history did you ever learn about Maximum ride and the flock?”

I shake my head trying to remember. “Um, isn't she the one that was, like, supposed to save all of mutant kind by didnt step up and made the apocalypse happen? She left all of the mutants there to die.” To be honest I wasn't paying attention, Kamis looked like he was about to puke all over. His eyes, a perfect replica of Mom’s eyes, were clenched shut.

“Well they lied to you.” My eyes go back to Dad. “Maximum Ride was a hero.” He goes on telling us about this amazing girl who saved the world over and over again. He told us about the battles they fought and about the family she grew up with. Maximum Ride was about 14, along with two other boys who were in the flock, Fang and Iggy. Nudge is a girl about 12, But the last two were the only two of them that were related. Gasman was 8 and his sister, Angle was 6. How she and the flock were saved by the school by a scientist named Jeb, and how Jeb was really Maximum Ride’s father and he told us about the other mutants called Erasers. They had were part wolf and Jeb's son had been turned into one when he was still 4, and he looked like an adult, but he was only 7 when his first mission by the school was to kill Maximum Ride. Things got complicated by the end though. A new flock member who was created to be Maximum’s “perfect other half” came and tried to hook up with her, but in the last battle fang, Maximum current boyfriend was killed by a new set of mutants who were called Horsemen, and the new flock member, Dylan, killed himself to bring Fang back to life. Fang and Maximum had a kid named Phoenix and raised her.

“So, your telling me that after Maximum saved the world, all of the scientists who were left in the world who had control of the Horsemen captured Phoenix and used her as bait and captured the flock. They killed Maximum on the spot and somehow Angle got everyone else out of the building and blew the place up?” I ask just making sure.

“Don't forget the bloody battle!” Alex says excitedly. , Kamis looked like he was about to puke all over. His eyes, a perfect replica of Mom’s eyes, were clenched shut.

“Well they lied to you.” My eyes go back to Dad. “Maximum Ride was a hero.” He goes on telling us about this amazing girl who saved the world over and over again.

They killed Maximum on the spot and somehow Angle got everyone else out of the building and blew the place up?” I ask just making sure.

“Don't forget the bloody battle!” Alex says excitedly, which reminds me of my dreams. I hold up a hand saying, "Just a sec." And run out of the room. I make a sharp turn and almost hit one of my extra limbs on the door jam. I skid into my room and grab my dream journal, and race myself back. I toss it at Dad and sit back down.

"My dream journal. I have something to tell you too," I take a deep breath, "I have been hearing a voice, in my head, and it told me to start logging my dreams, and at first I didn't listen, so the beginning isn't as detailed as the last ones. When I didn't listen the Voice got persistent, so I listened." I can feel a weight come off of my chest as I said all of this. When I look at Kamis he looks worse, he is now pouring sweat and is ghostly white. "Kamis?" I ask him.

"I'm good Sarah." He said, his words clipped and short. Dad was still looking over my dream journal when Sophia starts humming Mom's lullaby. Soon we are all singing to it and I have to fight back tears from remembering her. When we were done Sophia starts talking.

"Me too, and Alex. We've both heard a Voice in our heads." She fidgets with her  hands, "It told us things like, what we we're doing isn't useful, unless it is used for survival." In a quieter tone she said. "It also said to stay with Sarah, Wherever she is." We sit there for a few moments while Dad finishes the journal, and moves to fidgeting with the envelope. I nod to it and he looks me in the eye for a little while, almost like he was gathering his courage up for whatever he was going to tell us.

"This, children, is a letter from your mother. It holds the future for you kids, she asked that if anything happens to her that I keep this and show you when you go through the change. Sarah first, then Sophia and alex."

I open the envelope with shaky hands.

Dear Children.

I know you have lots of question, so I with a heavy heart, will try to answer then as best as I can. I told your father that if something happens to me that he has to be able to explain everything and be able to give this to you when you go through the change. The change happens to all flock descendants when they are needed by the world.

I know this because of an ancient Text that was written by a flock member that could see the future, it was Angle that wrote that. Then things that grew in your back will eventually grow into very strong and powerful wings. Also, you will have to find other people like you, decedents, and try to make a team, or a flock of your own. You will also have to figure out what and/or what you are saving the world from. Along with the wings will come more abilities and powers, do not tell anyone about this. Tell people you are part Horsemen or something, just tell no one about this. Don’t trust anyone, kids or adults until you find out that they know about Maximum Ride and the Flock. Ok, so there is a website, called Fang's Blog. You should go to it and see if anyone has commented on it to start finding the teammates you will need.

    Goodbye,

My Children, Love you all.

Mom

 

I pass on the paper and realize there was another paper in the envelope. When I pull it out I see my name neatly scrawled on it. I unfold it and start reading it.

 

Sarah,

    I know that we just put a lot of pressure on you, by telling you to save the world and all. I have one thing that comes before that though, and you will thank me for that later, but I need you to take care of the twins, I am counting on you to do this for me. Also, trust your gut feeling. It is something that you should always be able to count on.

Love Mom.

After reading the second letter I feel numb. I'm not sure why, but when the door is knocked on I jump, only to have Kamis let in his best friend, Henry in. I sigh. Kamis, I realize, looks better, but he is still a little pale and you can tell that he is still in pain because of his eyes.

“Guys!” Henry rushes in, “I’m part Horsemen!” He smiles at us. Then noticing our wing nubs he smiles, “You too from the looks of it.” Finally we all start to smile. Smiling at our secret, our purpose. He sits down next to Henry, talking about last night's high school basketball game. I realize I was still wearing no shirt but only a sports bra.

I stand up, "Dad, are we going to school?"

"Um, no. I'll tell the school that you all are sick. I leave as I think about my dreams. My dreams are obviously  following the same timeline as the story, which means that I am dreaming about Maximum Ride and the Flock. But for how long? All the way to me, or just after everyone in the original flock is dead? I put on a black tank top and black pair of shorts. My school uniform goes back in my closet. I quickly brush my long black dyed hair into a sloppy ponytail. I go back to Alex and Sophia's room and they tell me that Kamis and Henry went to go play basketball and Dad went to work. I sit on one of the beds and watch Alex and Sophia play barbie, reenacting the story Dad told us, with more drama than there probably was.

I envy the fact that they can bounce back and not let it bother then or change them. That they can not let themselves be sucked into whatever this is. What I don't understand about all of this is why kamis wasn't addressed or even had to read the letter.

Also, when Henry came in he perked right up, mostly. His eyes told me that he was still in pain. He always looked more like mom than the rest of us do with his black hair (both mom and Dad had black hair) and blue eyes. Alex and Sophia are identical an look like Dad; Black hair, brown eyes, and tall. I look nothing like my parents, I have blond hair, and green eyes. I dye my hair black to match the rest of my family. Anyhow, I decide to corner Kamis and tell him, actually make him, tell me what's going on. My phone beeped, letting me know that my friend Kaili texted me. When I looked down I saw that she had asked why I want at school. I typed an apology but then realized that she would think that this isn't me and I told her I was sick and to leave me alone. Which makes her think that it's ok to bother me all day. Which it is ok, but I pretend to be mad at her and she pretends to be mad at me. She gets here after school faster than ever to make sure I am still breathing. When I tell her about how my whole family skipped school she burst out laughing I'm glad she didn't get mad though, everyone knows that phones are monitored. Usually either by the school that you go to, but for adults its the boss or company that monitor the phone. Usually the adults don’t have to worry about it if they are in a smaller close knit company or are the boss. If you are in a huge corporation you wouldn't be able to sneak around as much. Henry and Kamis walk into my room sweaty and tired looking.

Henry sits on my floor next to Kaili and me technically not though, because I’m on my bed laying on my stomach with a pillow over my new wings to looked less deformed, and waits for the bathroom when Kamis goes to take a shower. We talk about nothing and everything at once, school, TV shows, sports, the royals, gossip, and mostly about ourselves. When Kamis takes his spot is when Kaili finally shuts up. I tell Kamis to leave for a few minutes. I stand up and class my door behind him. “Guess what?” I ask her, not expecting an answer. “I’m par Horsemen!” When she starts to get confused I take off my shirt. I show her, only to have to turn away when she tries to touch one. “They hurt really bad so all you can do is look.” While I put my shirt on I explain that they are wings and how they are supposed to grow in, but as I do I try to ignore the look of hurt from whe I told her she cant touch it and the looks of envy she shot at me as I told her about the wings.

I call Kamis back in and they start talking about school drama and english papers. I am a year behind them, they are both in their junior year but I am in my sophomore year. At least I have Henry in my grade and even in some of my classes. I could feel the need for me to leave but it would put me in an awkward position to tell a lie and I would have to explain it to them later why I did it, witch would not leave me in a good position. Knowing that they like each other don't sit well with me, knowing that they are going to take each other away from me sucks.

Just as I decide to leave my dad calls me and I am able to sigh a thankful breath. Dad was sitting on the couch with the twins but there was also two men in very fancy crisp suits. Dad looks at the twin and asks them, “Darlings, would you please leave and let us all talk?” They both nod, as does dad, but its to me to follow them and latch the switch that tells us that they opened the door. When I got back dad and the older man were talking and laughing like two old pals. When dad realized that I was back he introduced us all.

“Sarah, this is Blake, my old friend from college.” He gestures to the older of the two, blond hair, cut short, tan skin, blue eyes, and get this he had a gem on the side of the his eye that points to the ear, but when he looked at me it changed color, witch probably meant it was not fake, that it was a natural thing. “And, this is... Oliver? Is that correct?” Both nodded. Oliver was exactly like his uncle but his eyes were green and his jems were different colors. “His nephew.” The only other difference that I could tell was the face expressions. Blake was more open and cheerful, but Oliver was more serious. “And boys, this is Sarah.” My dad says, squeezing my shoulders, but Blake laughs, clutching his sides.

My dad and I exchange a confused look. “You made her seem very different than she really is,” Blake says, “you made her seem like the most wonderful woman on the planet and the smartest, and not very girly, but I guess I got my hopes up.” I watched my father face tense up and his jaw go tight. I can tell by the way he straitens up that he is barely containing kicking Blake and Oliver out.

“Dad, why am I here?” I ask him.

“Because, Blake owns an all girls school and he has an opening for you, and I was hoping you would take it. I’ll have Blake tell us about the school and whatnot now then you and I could talk bout it later. Ok?” I just nod, trying to figure out what was happening and I was led into the dining room and I sat on one side while Oliver and Blake sit on the other side, dad rests his hands on my shoulder and he stays there while Blake hands me an file folder full of paper.

“Thi is usually what we give to normal kids, but you aren't normal. I know of you heritage and I have been collecting kids that I think will benefit you by making a team of them. Not all of you team have to be ancestors but they might want evidence before you make them officially into the team. I had been hoping that you would come and meat some of these kids and dee if any of them are catching you eye.” Je smile reassuringly at me and I nod at him.

“Why?”

“I beg your pardon?”

“Why are you helping me?” I ask him. He looks at dad and sighed and told me something I was not expecting.

“Believe it or not I was part of the team that your mother put together.” I try to look calm and collected and I just nodded,

“Why do I need more people, we already have 5 people in our team.” Say.

Dad says, “Who all is on your team?” as Blake says,” You have a good point.”

“Kamis, the twins and Henry, and me of course.” I say, then realize that Oliver was just been sitting there, “Why is he here?” I nod to him.

“He is part Horsemen, the real kind, and I was hoping that if you liked and trusted him you would be able to put him in your team.” I look up at dad, but he won't look at me. I decided right then that I don't like Mr. Blake whatever-his-last-name-is, at all.

“First of all, this isn't my team, we are all equals, second of all I won't let anyone into the team without the consent of the other team members, and third pf all we all have to trust the person, bit Oliver hasn't done anything to make us trust him.” I hold up three fingers, “Those are the standards to get onto this team, and I might want to know his abilities, I look at my dad, who was still not looking at me and I tell them that I think about it. I watch them all nod and I excuse myself and I start back to where Kamis and Kaili are, but backtrack to Alex and Sophia’s room because I can hear Kaili and Kamis talking, but mostly it sounded like they were both laughing. I sat on a bed and joined into an argument about two boys in their grade about who was cuter.
