The night was cool and dark. wewe can’t even see three feet in front of you. It is a good thing I want them to see me. Otherwise I would have fell over a hundred times because of those stupid mti roots. And above all I have the worst possible luck because my flashlight is dying. It flickered once twice three times and I am now left in the dark. I threw aside my disappointing flashlight and picked a good mti and started to climb.
I was almost half way up the mti shina when I heard barking. Is that a dog? Then I saw a blinding light in the darkness. Then I heard them two voices having an argument about what is the best way to find me. good the players have arrived. But inayofuata to the one on the right was I big massive pit-bull. He was growing at anything that moved. Luckily they had no idea I was right above their heads. I mean really they have no reason to think I would be in a bila mpangilio mti in the woods. So my hiding spot was prefect. But if Emma made one sound that dog would probably attack her. I had to get rid of that dog.
Then an idea hit me I remembered that one mwaka I went to a summer camp and learned how to make this really cool and realistic birdcall. I mean I was the best in our group and the birds acutely respond to it. I cupped my hands over my mouth and blew moving my hands in a motion witch caused the sound to become a spooky call I heard once tonight. I waited and I heard bonehead number one ask bonehead number two if he heard that. “Get a grip boy don’t go all scary cat on me.” * ok, ok I was probably nothing anyway.* Then I heard the birds take up my call and the dog went nuts. Pulling bonehead number one far away with him.
With him out of hearing rage I started to chuckle this could be really fun messing with these guys. I wish I had my camera. “Who’s there demanded bonehead number two.” I shut my mouth and stayed perfectly still. “I know wewe are there Alex come on be a good girl and come out.” I snorted what if I don’t want to be a good girl.“Where are you? He shouted for me.” ohh anywhere and everywhere. I taunted. He was searching everywhere high and low but he already past me plus he provably wouldn’t be able to see me this high up in the dark. Then I heard something songesha and with a scream of agony he feel to ground. Nice one I called to Emma. I slid down the tree. Then out of the darkness something au shall I say someone grabbed Emma. I ran to her. No please don’t hurt her! I came to a stop when I saw her arm bending in a angle that it was not subpost to be in her taser was smashed to pieces. My hand went to my mouth her attacker was no where to be seen. She was crying in pain I could tell she was trying not to scream bloody murder. My fear and disbelief turned into anger and hatred. My body was shaking with rage. No one hurts my friend and gets away with it. My eyes narrowed. The sound of a snapping twig got my attention. I turned I don’t know what came over me then. But as the man who did this to my friend pounced on me. A blinding golden light flew out of my palm and blasted him away. He was flown back so far I don’t know where he landed. I looked at my palm then wondering how in the world that happened. Then I saw it.
On my hand was a sun that was glowing red and yellow. I realized that symbol and then I knew how I just blasted that guy. No was all I could think this can’t be happening I didn’t want this why me of all people. “Alex how did…. Your … glowing …you’re the”I cut her off finishing her sentence. The chosen one au the keeper of the forbidden light that only one person can control light au anything that something to do with it. How do wewe know that? she asked only someone that was from here… My father I closed my eyes a uchungu, chungu sweet memory popped in to my mind of my dad telling me a story about a girl saving magical creatures and forces of light from the dark one. Now I know he was telling me my destiny and not just a kitanda time story.
Just then I heard that dog again my eyes flew open. I turned to see it growing at me. Not now flea bag my hand started to tingle. I passed my hand over the dog. I can sense magic over the dog. I smiled oh how sweet a shape shifter decided to stop by. He chose that moment to change back to true form. And not going to lie he chakula cha jioni, karamu hot guy. He had shaggy black hair and deep brown eyes. it was to dark to tell what he was wearing. Who are wewe and I will know if wewe lie so don’t try. That’s Kyle Jason’s partner. What else have wewe kept from me Emma? I turned my attention back to her. And my face softened what did that jerk do to you? I walked over and Kyle tried to stop me. I was already mad form the guy who did this to Emma so when he tried to touch my arm I burned him without much thought. He yelped and stumbled back. Nice try but wewe touch me again wewe get fried got it beast boy. She is my friend I am not going to hurt her. I bent down on my knee’s trust me.
I closed my eyes and felt the light of the sun a gentle fame spreading the warmth from me to Emma. Her arm strained and she sighed in relief. “How did wewe do that and who are wewe the guy demanded.” I shook my head why do wewe look so surprised wewe were a dog not two dakika zamani and your asking me how what I just did was possible. I looked at him then. Get a grip beast boy. I am Alex Montezz I held out my hand to him. Jason’s sister. Your Jason’s sweet and innocent little sister he alisema with his eye borrows raised. My face hardened it’s been a long time sense he has seen me I changed hard not to with everything I been through. I am not the defenseless little girl that needed a hero. I helped Emma up. I pulled out the tracker out of my bag. Come on we need to get moving before group number two gets here.
I started off and they followed me through the woods. The rest of the night went kwa quickly. The sun was coming up. It’s almost dawn the sun will be up in. I tilted my head to the side. About two hours. “How do wewe know that asked Kyle?” Because the sun is the chanzo of my power. I stopped and looked at him. I rolled my eyes wewe haven’t put it together yet. I smiled and held out my hand palm up inaonyesha the sun tattoo. “So wewe have a tattoo he said.” I took a deep breath and the power of the sun ran through my body heating me in the chill air. And then I felt that heat up my hand and knew it was glowing red again. He stumbled back in surprise. Relax I am not going to blast you. “Well wewe did last night.” I just escaped from a mad man and was getting chased kwa his goons and wewe changed from there dog to a guy who looked like he was going to straggle me and Emma has just been hurt. What did wewe actpect me to do give ya a hug. I didn’t know wewe how was I subpost to know wewe were Marafiki with Emma. And worked with a brother.
“Alex calm down alisema Emma.” I am perfectly calm. “Could have fooled me I thought wewe were upset but that is just me.” alisema Kyle. Ha ha every one is a comedian. Emma when were wewe going to tell me? I asked she knew what I was talking about she knew me better than anyone. “I wanted to but I ….” Couldn’t I told wewe everything Emma. wewe know how much he means to me and kept that from me. I shook my head I couldn’t believe this. Tears in my eyes. “She couldn’t cause she promised Jason she wouldn’t if she met you.” Why would he ask that? “Because he didn’t want wewe to be in danger he didn’t want to bring wewe in to this.” “Now that Blake found wewe it kinda too late for that” Kyle responded sadly and with a little bitterness toward Blake. don’t blame him.
I blinked back tears as we walked on I was the lead. Emma was talking to Kyle in the back talking to quietly for me to hear. The sun was starting to rise and I felt much better in the light of day. Guys look that’s the end of the forest I alisema happily we all ran out of the undergrowth and what I saw inayofuata took my breath way. Emma what is this place? I knew my eyes were wide. Kyle chuckled at my reaction “takes wewe breath away everytime.” “This is worth fighting for a place full of peace and love.” “No worries just happiness. At least that is how it was before Blake showed up.”
What I looked out before was the most beautiful place I ever seen. Stretched out before me were rolling hills of green. wanyama I only seen in vitabu and fairy tales were every where. Flowers of every color had vichimbakazi on them. A nice blue sky with three suns? Rising in the early morning. Beyond the hills was a huge ngome beyond huge mountains behind it. I can’t even put it in words of this breath taking sight before me. To my left I hear Kyle say
