Since I had woken up I could do nothing but receive blows from my two friends. I could feel the extreme weakness of my body because of the intense blows they were unleashing on me.
"What Zeke, aren't you going to fight? Will you just stay there quietly?" Limwell said as he hit me in the face and body repeatedly.
"Would he fight if his hand and foot were tied? Think about it," Jerome said just watching what his friend was doing.
Jerome was right. Even if I wanted to fight, I couldn't because I was floating and tied up. Some kind of black energy was separating my hands and legs. My limp body was scratched all over. I didn't know how I got here but when I woke up, I looked like this. I was wearing no clothes except for my pants and I was bleeding all over.
I felt my face sting when Limwell slapped me.
"If you had told me before that your twin was the reason why my sister died, we wouldn'
I felt Kier's hands caressing my cheeks. He wiped away my tears. "Shhhhh. Don't cry. Isn't this what you wanted? To see me and be together again?" he asked, smiling. I was unable to answer him as I felt my legs and hands go numb. He'd untied me. The sensation came back to me slowly and I felt freedom temporarily. I gave Kier a tight hug as I fell into his arms. An embrace full of longing. "We finally met again," I said, uncontrollably in tears. Seeing him again was the happiest moment in the four years I had lost. I felt him caress my hair which surprised me. He did the way I used to do it to him all those years ago. "I'm back so we can be together again," he said letting go of my embrace. "Come with me, Kiel." he smiled. "Where? Can't you come back home to us?" "I will not come home to us. You will come with me. You will love the world I built for our brothers and sisters. There I will no longer kill and thirst for blo
"Take away the energy that binds them," I commanded and it surprised my twin and the Director. "Why? Isn't it easier for you to kill them if they are bound to my power? They have nothing against you because they can no longer use their power," the Director replied, almost shouting at me. "Whether they have power or not, they have nothing against us. Besides, I will not kill a creature that cannot fight back. I would prefer to see them fight until they pity themselves on the fact that they are alive," I said as I smiled and backed away from Ciara. The formerly weak and timid woman I had first met at the Medallions Hub was back. "I can't quite imagine that you would be even more brutal than me, Kiel. What you said made me even more impressed. I didn't make a mistake negotiating with the Director for our lives," my twin said as he smiled and hugged me. "We're twins, aren't we? We were born with a curse. And that curse bound the two of us toge
"Stand back!" said the Director looking seriously at Ronnie's unconscious body. "He's not the real Keeper!" he added, which surprised my twin. "What do you mean?" Kier asked, looking at Ronnie's severed head lying on the side of his body. Suddenly darkness enveloped the Director's eyes which caused Ronnie's body to disappear like a bubble. He then looked at the rest of the Keepers and in a flash, they all dissolved. "Arghh! Blasphemous! You're a traitor!" the Director screamed in anger and was in front of me in a flash. He strangled me so angrily that I smiled. "Where are they?" he asked and it made me smile more. "Was my show okay, Mr. Director?" I asked which intensified his anger even more. With the intensity of it, his aura gradually changed. It was even stronger than his usual power. "You made the mistake of pissing me off!" he said and his form suddenly changed
"What is it, hurry up! We're the only ones who aren't there," Limwell said to his friends."This it is, oh. Wait for me!" Jerome shouted as he chased after his friend.When he chased him, he put his arm around his friend and smiled."Zeke will be happy when he sees us in our graduation gowns," said Jerome who was adjusting his gown that was flying in the wind."That's for sure. The three of us dream to graduate and get our diploma!" Limwell replied as he gripped the stiff folder containing his diploma."I didn't expect us to graduate, we're just copying Zeke. Hahaha.""It only means one thing, the diploma we hold is for him not for us," Limwell laughed too."There they are!" said Jerome and ran towards the Keepers."Sorry, we're late," said Limwell looking at the Keepers wearing their graduation gowns."No worries. We just got here too," Toffer replied, smiling at them."Any last words for the Dark Mind?" Darwin s

"Hey, where are you going?" my classmate Limwell asked. "Outside. Call of nature," my emotionless response. "It's forbidden to leave the tent at this time. You know the rules at this camp." "What do you want? My bladder to burst?" "It's up to you. I just warned you. When Dean Sumaway sees you, you will be suspended for a week." I didn't answer anymore and went out of our tent. The cool breeze greeted me. I looked at the tents I passed as I headed for a large tree not too far away. "It's okay here," I whispered. After I peed, I was about to go back to our camping tent when suddenly someone grabbed my arm. My legs shook when I saw who was holding my arm. I saw an old man with a wrinkled face. He had a long beard and was dressed in rags. In short, he was a hermit. "Who are you? What do you want from me?" I stuttered.
I hurriedly opened my room and searched for the old book. Earlier I was anxious to go home to find out what was going on with me. I was shocked not to find the book on my study table. Where was it? I knew it was here because I had seen it this morning. I hurried down and looked for Nanny Guring. She was the only one that I allowed to enter my room because I didn't want anyone to know about my belongings. "Oh son, why are you in a hurry? Are you hungry already?" she asked when she saw me pacing frantically. "Nanny, where did you take my book?" My question was direct. "What book? Is it your old book? I threw it away. Obviously, you don't read it anymore," she said smiling. "What? Didn't I tell you not to throw away anything that belongs to me? Where did you throw it? I need it!" I almost screamed at the old woman. "I'm sorry. I thought..." "Find it! I
Lyka's words kept haunting me. I am the most powerful of the thirteen medallions. I am the key to open Loowa's Kingdom. I will be the answer to end the coming war. If what she said was true, why me? What was it about me and me being chosen to be given such power? "It's time for you to come, Big Brother." I was surprised when a child suddenly appeared in front of me. I was about to enter our main gate when he spoke. "I don't have any money, kid. Maybe tomorrow." No emotion betrayed my face. "Wow, so judgmental. I don't need you, you need me," he said smiling. "What do I need from a child like you?" My response was as annoyed as I was feeling. "Tell me first what happened to you all day?" he asked and sat down on the plant box in front of the gate. "Why should I tell you? What are you doing in my life?" My
