“I’m sitting next to Taco Bell eating a bean burrito seems normal right. oh wait did i mention the giant who doesn’t speak?” The Druid groaned holding his half eaten dinner. “oh god who are you talking too!? I stood up pointing my food at him “aha! he talks! Unfortunately some beans flew at his face. he calmly wiped it off licking his hands. “Tell me your name strange child” said the Druid.
i stuffed my face with a third burrito, after all free food is free food.” “oh its Sam i replied. “and your last name.” i glanced up confused. “Sam, Sam Summit…..and your name.” he took a look at his food pausing for a while. I am Druid. I got up quickly, dropping my food in the processes. “Did you-did you-you just speak…in my mind!?!!?” “yes of course, I am a druid. In a way i’m magician you could say… the problem is your other soul, the one we talked about, is my Master.”
“ohhhhhhhhhh i get it nooow. so basically….. your my bitch 😛 hahahahaaa.” A nerve pulsed on his head. “whatever that may be, you could say your life is very important. what i need is for you to name me.” I scooted over for him to sit. “oh, i see. so what kind of name would be suitable?” He ate his last burrito “I would prefer Yias.” now that i look closely, he does look sorta Asian. i mean If you can ignore the Yao Ming height. “Sure sounds good to me. By the way who was that guy back there?” He reached over grabbing my left overs.
I felt like Back then, when he was telling me his name….Was it just me or was he trying to send me a message? hmm strange. “He has many names, but here hes known as The cube man.” “oh cause he can control gravity right?” He nodded. We sat there for a while in tell it got dark. “I need to get home so, can we get going.”
“Aggghhhhhhhhhhhhhh!” snap! another shuddering break. “Haahahahahaaa! You will be exemplified, I shall show those who go against my will.” Three broken ribs, four twisted ligaments, two broken fingers,, internal bleeding from the left side no sign of healing, and a short reserve of energy.
“Hahaha” he laughed dryly covering his face with his broken fingers. After all I’ve been through? After all I’ve seen? Am I really going to die….here? He looked at me. Perhaps worried he’d hit his prey far too many times in the head. I groaned getting into a fighting position. Ive worked to hard for this to be bested by the likes of him. My arms moved fluidly swiping back and forth stopping onto my sides.
Taking a deep breath I looked deep into myself deep, deep, deeper. I couldn’t help but smile hearing him continue his idea of glory and how he would enjoy his riches. please as if, they don’t call me Sam The great Summit for nothing. okay maybe they don’t but that’s irreverent.
I glanced at Saiy his tall lean body unmoving. I guess hes. I quickly looked away feeling a pang in my heart my bones groaning for rest. My heart was numb everything was numb….. Tears streaming down my face I turned away. I remembered every joy I’d felt, sitting and eating with a friends, the gentle sleep and whispers i felt in the womb. The cold wetness in the sea weeded oceans. “oouf!” I fell reeling from the kick dust making me eyes blurred. wiping my mouth I stood. “is that all you got, oh great and powerful Cube Man maybe you need to think outside the box huh”
that seemed too work. Extending his arm palm outwards he gripped the air clenching his fist. Just as i got up i fell back down. i could actually feel my bones groaning in protest. okay maybe this wasn’t such a bright idea. Struggling to get up for what, the 100th time? I coughed out blood and assumed my position. before he could move I rushed forward quick as can be dodging his fist. “where theirs a will….theirs a way.” I extended my second arm bringing it close to his chest. Locking my other arm to keep him still
Blowing steam through his nose he began pulsing, a red haze blasting from him. Time was running out. I crunched low chanting my prayer. “I son of Oceanus call upon you…. thee time has come to lend me your trident, for I may lean on thee power! I! TRUE NAME BEING POSIDEN!! CALL UPON MY LINE! YEILD TO ME!!”
He stopped glowing turning slightly to the sound of rushing water. I jumped back grabbing my weapon was that a waterfall? no, it couldn’t be….. the nearest lake was at least 400 miles away nonetheless a waterfall! A shadow swept over us blocking out the sun. He turned back quickly realizing his mistake. “agh!” The knife stopped hilt resting deeply in his heart. pouring everything into it I cried out. “Inflame thee!
He fell to his knees….I surged on. Inflame thee! I fell with him exhausted. A blue pulse of flames engulfed us both. In flame theeeee!!!!” blast after blast I poured my very being into him. I must have passed out for a second. I sensed His faceless head resting on my shoulder.we we’re both leaning on each other are knees bloodied and bruised He coughed out blood a smile on his face. He didn’t look in pain, he looked peaceful. His suit tattered.
“I’m glad…His breathing was raspy. I’m glad I met someone…who… his body started to go limp. “who was stronger then me.” He whispered. His eyes lost their light. “Goodbye Cube man,….good bye. The wall of water crashed over them, sweeping them both too the bottom.
“Whats another word for hydrophobic?” said Tom. The college student bit his pencil searching through his mind. “um is it i mean can it be, not attracted to water right.” Saiy and Greg both looked up, interested to see if he got something right for once. Which was funny since they should have known this as Juniors. “actually yes, that is correct” Tom continued on to the next question. well at least he got one right.
Tutoring paid for the rent so he couldn’t really complain. But the stress of dealing with clueless college student didn’t sit well with him. He turned to to see him pumping his fist in the air, the biggest smile on his face, oh my god…were those actully tears in his eyes. Ignoring Saiy and Gregs laughter he asked him the next question. “whats does amphipathic mean?”
He started packing his bags The two dumb asses started rolling on the floor laughing. Saiy grabbed his stomach “oh my god oh my god, hes really leaving” Greg punched him laughing hysterically “stop it h-hurts owww.” Eh…it wasn’t even that funny. A pissed off student would most likely not pay the bill, so he had to step in. “Guys please, hes trying to learn unlike you two, plus last i checked your both failing bio so
The student put his hand on my shoulder “oh shut your trap, I know your just worried if i don’t pay” Greg got up from the floor “ooooooh rekt! rekt! you just got rrrreeeeekkkt!” “well yes of course, this is my only source of living so i must be strict. “yeah yeah yeah, see you tomorrow i need an aspirin. i mean who needs to know if a lipid is attracted to water or not dafaq.”
His voice getting lower as he walked away. Greg and Saiy were dying, tears streaming down their red faces. Tom packed his bag. “remind me why you too decided to ruin my job, wait don’t answer that. you guys might enjoy telling me your grand adventure.”
