"I know what I saw Frank and I am very sure that my eyes weren't playing tricks on me," Christiana said moving closer to him."You didn't see anything, I just threw the watch up and it fell back to the floor," Frank said, picking up his watch and strapping it back to his wrist.Christiana didn't say anything again as she stood over him with a warm expression on her face."What, why did you come back?" Frank said raising his head to look at her before bringing it down again."Frank," Christiana called."Yeah.""You said we're family now right?" Christiana said."Yeah, we are," Frank said with a nod."Okay," Christiana said as she sat beside him on the bench. "And family shouldn't keep secrets from one another right?""Ugh….. sometimes they do," Frank said. "Wait, is this about the watch?""I know what I saw Frank and I also know when people are lying." She said,"No, you don't," Frank said."You were one of the few boys in our class that didn't have a problem looking me in the face," C
Frank walked into their apartment with Arnold to see his mother sitting on her bed."Hi, Mom," Frank said."Hi honey Christiana came in a few minutes ago, she said you guys were walking slow," Jessica said."She said that?" Frank said, turning his gaze to the door to their room."Yeah, and she looked really upset. Did you guys do anything to upset her?" Jessica asked."No mom, I don't think I did anything to upset her," Frank said."You didn't? I wonder what she's upset about then." Jessica said."Don't worry mom, I'll go ask her," Frank said heading towards the door."You haven't told me how your first day at the academy was," Jessica said."It was great mom," Frank said quickly entering the room.He left the door open for Arnold who had entered the room a few seconds after him.The blonde haired teenager scanned the room with his eyes but there was no sign of Christiana but that was no problem because he knew where she was.He slowly opened the door leading to the balcony to see her
Frank was quite bummed that he had been so unfortunate to make such a small sound after he had put in so much effort.'All that and I still did the poorest.' Frank thought, staring at his legs.[ Superspeed deactivated ]"What happened man? You were doing so well until the last part." Carl said after Frank had walked back to them."I slipped, that's what happened," Frank said with a low tone."You sure did," Christiana said with a smirk on her face."Don't worry man you'll make up for it in the next round," Carl said, patting him on his shoulder."I think that will be the final round for your test." Lieutenant Kate said."Oh, there's no next round," Carl said as he slowly removed his hand from Frank's shoulder."Now it's time to give you your different rank badges and your development watch." Lieutenant Kate said as the pendulum and the disc slowly began to return from where they came from.Two boxes rose beside her on each side after she had taken a few steps back.She picked up her
The second test looked pretty harder than the first one but it was nowhere near its complexity.Carl had just completed the second test with a loud bang and a compliment from Kate. Now that he had been the first to try it out as a demonstration, Kate began to call out the rest of the students from the list she had in her hands now.The students being called out were finding it difficult to push the pendulum, those who managed to get it to the pendulum were only able to make tiny clang sounds while a few of them had given up on the way.There were still some who had managed to create reasonable bangs but they still weren't up to the one Carl had created."How heavy is that thing?" Frank asked."Really heavy and that's why they are making mistakes," Carl said."What do you mean?" Christiana asked."They are trying to use all their strength at the beginning instead of slowly pushing it with little strength and then increasing it when they get close to the disc," Carl explained."I don't
Even Kate seemed surprised by how Frank had only taken twenty seconds to finish the course."Are you sure you didn't make any mistakes with the button?" Kate asked."No, that's the accurate time," Josh said.Everyone stared at Frank as he walked back to his spot and the stares were making him a little uncomfortable."I just destroyed your time record," Frank said, looking directly into Christian's eyes."I'm not the one with the time record," Christiana said. "Have you forgotten about princess Rapunzel?"It was at that moment that Frank looked in her direction and caught her looking in their direction but she had turned away quickly."Yeah," Frank said."When did you become so fast?" Carl asked."I don't know, maybe during my frequent runs away from beasts," Frank said."You were so fast the discs hadn't even gotten that close when you ran past them," Carl said."Stop praising him Carl, I can feel his head inflating from here," Christiana said.'I guess she'll never stop teasing me.'
"Well, that was a second slower than the last time I did this." Lieutenant Kate said as she walked back to the kids. "A second slower?" One of the students said as she couldn't imagine how someone could finish the obstacle course faster. "So who would like to go first?" Kate asked, looking at the different faces of her students who numbered up to sixty. A boy eventually raised his hand and was immediately asked to come up by Kate. "What's your name?" Kate asked. "It's Kyle." The boy said with a timid look. "Ok, let's see how you do Kyle." Kyle stepped up to the starting place and immediately after he was given the signal to start, he took off. Maneuvering the rocks was a little tricky for him as it was taking him time to move from one rock to the other. By the time he had gotten to the platform he was already panting but he kept running to get a good time record. He really should have waited to catch his breath a little because immediately he jumped and grabbed the rope, he lo
Frank had taken a good look at the general yesterday and seeing him now still in the same uniform didn't make identifying him any hard for him.The general stepped forward and Glik moved back to stand behind him."Welcome the young people of Tron Ville." The general said. "You were all called here this morning because of the threat that still lurks around our walls."Up till today no one knows the cause of all these beast rampages or where they came from but Phoenix is trying their best to get to the bottom of it and so are we."The beast rampage started about three weeks ago and since then the military of Tron Ville had been doing their best to make sure that we saved as many lives as possible.""No, you weren't!" A man screamed from the second line which was close to Frank's line. "If you had really tried your best to save as many lives as possible then our children, my child wouldn't have been sent out to fight beasts."The man sounded like he was about to break down in tears now.
The night sky shone as bright as ever as numerous stars filled it up, it was quite a nice view if you were closer and the three friends could say the same as they watched from the porch Christiana had discovered earlier today."It's really nice to be away from all the beasts and commotion for a while," Carl said.He was standing between Frank and Christiana while holding the metal bars in front of the porch."Yeah, but we all know this is temporary," Frank said."What do you mean?" Christiana asked as she turned her gaze to Frank."Those beasts are still out there occupying our continent, one day we will have to fight back," Frank said."Yeah but you know Tron Ville can't do that alone even with the help of all the underaged kids here," Christiana said."I don't think Tron Ville is the only continent affected by this apocalypse," Frank said."What makes you so sure of that?" Christiana said."Can't you see it? Since the apocalypse started, even the good continent we share boundaries h
