Lucas' point of view
Sky is passed out, he has been for about an hour now but I can't seem to sleep tonight. So I've just been laying here beside him, watching him sleep. It may seem creepy to some, but when you find someone you really like and you find yourself awake at night while they sleep next to you. I dare you to not watch. You won't be able to. You'll be so fascinated that you won't even realize how long you have been staring at him or her.
Sky was obviously dreaming, because his eyes lids were constantly fluttering, I wonder what he was dreaming about. A noise near Sky's window caught my attention it was a beautiful crow, no, a raven and it seemed to be watching us, it flew away after about a minute and I got lost in my own thoughts again. I was playing back what Sky and I did tonight; I couldn't comprehend what had happened to us. What is this connection we have? Why is it so strong? I mean I'm not complaining, I've never had a more powerful orgasm before in my entire life and we didn't even have actual sex. I can only imagine the pleasure he and I will feel when or if we ever actually have sex. I looked down at Sky again and kissed his cheek, he twitched and snuggled closer into me I just smiled and drifted off to sleep with him in my arms. I couldn't be any happier.
I was woken up by Sky's phone; the alarm was still set for 7AM. I guess he still planned to go to school today. I felt him reach over and grab his phone from the nightstand that was next to me. As he turned off the alarm and began to back away towards his pillow my eyes were wide open and they caught his gaze.
"Hey." Sky said.
"Hi." I leaned up and kissed his cheek, just in case either of us had some horrid morning breath. "Are you going to school today?" I asked.
"Of course I am." Sky laughed as he jumped up and walked into his bathroom. I grabbed my toothbrush from my bag and quickly joined him. Once we were finish brushing our teeth Sky wrapped his hands around my neck and began to kiss me, I opened my mouth and massaged his tongue with mine as we slowly backed towards the shower.
"You like morning showers too, huh?" I asked as I turned the water on for us.
"They wake me up, well sometimes and other times the hot water just puts me right back to sleep." We laughed as we jumped into the shower once the water was steaming hot.
We took turns washing each other slowly while still kissing here and there. When we got out of the shower we quickly got dressed and walked over to the kitchen it looked like Kat was still asleep but I swear I could smell coffee.
"Is your mom up already?"
"Oh, yeah she likes to open shop early. She has some customers that like to come here for some morning breakfast in the lounge." Sky explained as he grabbed a couple pop tarts from the cabinet and threw me one. "Come on lets go pick up Angel." Sky led me downstairs where we bumped into Kat talking with a couple ladies that seemed to be Kats age.
"Morning ma, morning Ms. Sanders, Morning Mrs. Clark. Bye mom, bye Ms. Sanders, bye Mrs. Clark." Sky greeted and said goodbye so fast that all I had time to do was wave.
"Bye hun." Sky's mom was able to yell out before we disappeared downstairs.
I laughed. "Why are you in such a rush today?"
"Not a rush just those two women that were with my mom can really talk up a storm. We would have surely been late if we stayed and chat. Especially since you're a new face," Sky explained
"Hey my car is here in one piece." Sky announced.
I slapped Sky's butt as he walked over to the driver's side.
"Of course it is." I finished up my pop tart before I got into Sky's car. I didn't want to get crumbs anywhere but sky just hopped in while still eating. We pulled up to Angel's apartment building and Sky honked the horn.
"Hey, do we need to go get your sister?" Sky asked.
"Ah, don't worry she can take the bus." I said. Sky just had to give me one look and already knew we were going to go get my sister.
"Sup guys." Angel hopped in the back and just lay out in the back seat.
"Tired?" I asked.
"Always," he let out a sigh as he closed his eyes to get some last few minutes of rest before we got to school.
We picked up my sister who still blushed every time Sky talked to her. She was obviously developing a crush on him; it was honestly pretty damn cute. School was pretty normal today, seeing as it was nearing the end of the year we really don't do much. Especially since we're seniors there's really no point in us having to stay longer than 2 or 3 periods but whatever, Sky likes to come so I'll stick around. After we dropped Angel off Sky drove up to my place to drop off my sister. I looked over to Sky and thought it was about time he met my parents.
"Want to meet my parents?" I asked.
Sky just looked over at me with pure glee in his eyes.
"I'll take that as a yes?"
"I would love to meet them Luke." Sky leaned over and gave me a quick kiss before got out of the car and caught up to my sister who was opening the front door.
Skylar's Point of View
Oh man I'm so nervous to meet Luke's parents. They must be great people though they have been with Luke through everything and he has showed no sign of hate towards his parents. So obviously they have been supportive of him every step of the way. I hope they like me though.
As we walked up to Luke's house I really began to notice what a nice area they lived in. Their house was right in front of the beach which only made the house look even more beautiful. We walked into the house and my jaw dropped, it was like I just stepped into an actual house in Japan, at least that's what it looked like to me. Where I stood was a little area where we were supposed to take off our shoes, I followed Luke and Rin's lead and just stood with my socks on. As we walked down the hallway which had beautiful wood floors we passed by several beautiful paintings on the right side of the wall and on our left is a glass room. The room is in the very center of the house and looked like a garden. We got to the end of the hallway and there are these wooden sliding doors in front of us, Luke slid them open and there they were. Mr. and Mrs. Yoshida, they were on pillows sitting on their knees around a table that had some tea and snacks on it. Mrs. Yoshida quickly stood up and hugged me. I was taken by surprised but I gladly hugged her back.
"You must be Skylar. You are so handsome, just like Lucas said." Mrs. Yoshida was hugging me so tight I thought I might pass out from the lack of oxygen.
"Okaasan (mother), please you're embarrassing me already." Luke said sheepishly while looking down. I heard a deep voice begin to laugh and I saw Luke's father get up and walk towards me.
Luke began to introduce everyone properly. "Sky these are my parents Yukiko Yoshida and Katsumi Yoshida." Mr. Yoshida walked up and bowed and then extended his hand for me to shake, I quickly accepted.
"It's very nice to meet you both."
"The pleasure is all ours Skylar. It comes to my understanding that you helped my son when he was in a little trouble and I can't thank you enough for it." Katsumi pulled me into hug. I started to blush uncontrollably.
"Otousan (father), now you're embarrassing me," Luke pleaded.
His parents just laughed and sat back down at their table, it looked like they were playing some kind of game. Luke's father noticed my curiosity.
"It's called Shogi; it's kind of like your chess." Katsumi explained.
"Would you like some tea?" Yukiko offered while already pouring some tea for me and Luke.
I looked over to Luke and he was blushing, for the first time since I met him he was blushing. I couldn't help but laugh at him. We walked over and sat next to his parents we drank our tea as we watched them finish their game. I had no idea what was going on but they were so focused on what they were doing I couldn't help but be intrigued. Hopefully Luke will show me how to play one day. I heard the sliding door open and Riku walked in shirtless. I nearly spat my mouthful of tea out. As I was coughing and trying to catch my breath Lucas was patting my back trying to help me.
"I-I'm fine Luke." I coughed again. Riku has much more muscle than his younger brother and he has abs for days. He was soaked in sweat and was glowing bright red. By his attire it's obvious that he was working out or jogging or something. He has on a tight skimpy pair of shorts with running shoes and he has one of those arm strap iPod things. As he pulled out his headphone buds he smiled and extended his hand to me.
"Hi, I'm Riku we didn't get a chance to meet the other day." I blushed and shook his hand fast, hard and yeah I forgot to let go. Luke cleared his throat and I snapped back to reality.
"Uh, uh yeah, I'm, I'm." I tried to speak but all I could do was stutter.
"He's Skylar, Riku." Luke and his family all began to laugh which just made me blush even more. Luke quickly stood up.
"We'll be in my room." He said as he tried to help me up. I wasn't used to sitting on my legs this way so it was a little difficult to move. Everyone just laughed at me again. Once we were in the safety of Lucas' room I was able to calm down again. I noticed there wasn't a bed but there was a desk so I grabbed the chair and took a seat.
"Oh man was that embarrassing." I sighed as I relaxed into the chair.
"Relax babe, they love you." Luke said this as he pulled out some mats from his closet. "I also noticed you couldn't take your eyes off my brother." Luke teased.
"I-I-"I was too embarrassed to come up with something."
"Hey, relax I'm just teasing. No harm in looking." Luke laughed as he set up the mats and pillows on the floor.
I quickly tried to change the subject. "Is that your bed?"
"Yeah, I figure I set it up now so I don't have to do it later."
"Luke, your house is beautiful. I feel so calm in here."
"Yeah Akihito made sure we were very comfortable."
"And right next to the beach you're so lucky. I wish I lived this close to the beach." Luke walked over sat on my lap and wrapped his arms around my neck.
"You can stay here anytime you like, I'm sure my mom would be ecstatic to have you." Luke said as he nuzzled into my neck.
After staying at Luke's for most of the afternoon I decided to get home early. I said goodbye to everyone and took off. The rest of the week was pretty uneventful, I haven't seen that women since the bus stop incident. I don't know if that was a good or bad thing but I wish I could find out more about her.
It's finally Saturday, Lucas and I planned to go back to our spot and spend the entire day there alone but Luke mentioned we should bring Angel. I felt horrible ever since Luke has been around I've been seeing less and less of my best friend so I thought it was a great idea to bring him along.
We got to the waterfall at around 10AM.
"Wow guys, this is just amazing. How did you find this place? It's so far off the trails." Angel was in awe.
"I don't know we just ended up out here one day." I explained as I removed my shirt and shoes, I couldn't wait to get in the water. Lucas was setting up our blankets and cooler so we won't have to worry about it later and Angel just jumped into the plunge pool with me. I looked over to Luke and I noticed a jet black bird sitting on the tree just staring at him, it looked a little creepy.
"Luke, get in here!" I yelled over to Luke. He quickly stripped down to his trunks and jumped in with us. We spent a couple hours just swimming around and jumping off the falls until we got hungry so we decided to take a break and lay out.
After laying out for about an hour I heard the bushes moving behind us. I sat up and looked over to the bushes. Who could that be? I thought to myself. I waited to see who would emerge, from the amount of sound I was hearing it sounded like there were two people coming our way. And then I saw them, two men dressed in black suits they sort of looked like they worked for the government or something. One of the men had long blonde hair; his hair was so blonde it was almost white. He stood back while the second man came forward; he's a real buff guy he looked extremely intimidating.
"Luke, Angel, get up." I shoved them both and they slowly woke up.
"What is it?" Angel asked while rubbing his eyes. Just then the buff guy spoke up.
"Skylar Andrews and Lucas Yoshida?"
"That's us and who are you?" I asked.
"You need to come with us." The buff guy demanded.
"What can we help you with?" Luke asked seriously as he stood up. I didn't like this. Everyone's tension was growing I had a bad feeling about this. The buff guy pulled out some sort of weird gun; it didn't look like a normal gun though.
"This can be easy or it can be very difficult. Just do as I say and no harm will come to either of you."
"Now hold on one damn minute just put the gun down." Angel got to his feet and walked towards the two men.
"Angel no!" I yelled. And then the man pulled the trigger, it happened so fast I couldn't do anything. A dart flew towards Angel and hit him in his neck. He pulled out the dart and fell to the ground.
"Angel!" I ran over to my friend to see if he was ok.
"Bad move buddy." Luke said. He then lifted the buff guy off the ground and was making a motion to throw him when all of a sudden Luke just dropped to the ground and hard. The buff guy fell to the ground and quickly stood up and cleaned off his jacket.
"Luke what's wrong? Get up!" I yelled as I got to my feet.
"I-I can't move it feels like, like I weigh a thousand pounds. Sky it, it hurts." Luke struggled as he tried to move. I didn't understand what was going on. Why were these men attacking us and why couldn't Luke move?
The buff guy pulled out his gun and aimed it at Luke. There's no way I'm letting that happen again. I pulled a huge wave of water out of the plunge pool lifted it right over my head and sent it right towards the two men. They somehow floated over the wave. They weren't flying they just floated there like they were in space. The buff man shot his gun while he was floating and it hit Luke on the neck.
"Luke!" I yelled
"S-Sky r-r-run." Luke managed to squeeze that out before he passed out.
"I'm not running!" I yelled as I focused on the man with the blonde hair. He has to be the one who was holding Luke down and made them float. I sent him flying into the bushes. I grabbed the buff guy and sent him into the plunge pool I focused as hard as could and froze the entire top layer of water. That guy wasn't getting out any time soon. I turned to go deal with the blonde guy but he was standing right behind me I tried to push him away but before I could I just dropped to the ground. It feels like I'm being crushed by some unseen force. The blonde guy walked over to the pool and shattered the ice, with whatever force he's using to hold me down. He then slowly walked over to the gun his friend dropped.
"Wh-what do you want from us?" I begged. He just laughed and aimed the gun at me. I saw some sort of bird flying extremely close to the blonde and then all of a sudden I saw a naked woman falling on him. She swiftly and elegantly removed the gun from the blonde aimed it directly at his neck and shot him. I got a clear look at the woman and it was her, the woman that was following us.
"You? You're helping us?" I asked as I stood up finally free from that force. The naked woman said nothing and walked over to the plunge pool. The buff guy was pulling himself out of the water when he looked up she shot him as well.
I'm so confused I don't know if I should be attacking her or thanking her. She walked slowly towards me her beauty is hypnotizing when she was directly in front of me I felt a sting on my stomach. I looked down and it was a dart. She shot me too.
"Why?" I asked but then I passed out. She just watched me fall.
"Sky-Sky, baby wake up."
I could hear Lucas trying to wake me up, why was he holding my hand behind my back? Why can't I move my feet? I slowly came to and began to look around, Lucas wasn't holding me down I'm tied up! I bolted up as I tried to break free from the ropes that were tied around my ankles and wrist but it was no use. For some reason my telekinesis isn't working, what the hell is going on?
"Sky calm down, we tried everything we aren't getting out of this anytime soon." Luke scooted over and leaned against me. I took another look around we're still at the falls then I remembered what happened. We were attacked by those the men and-and that woman saved us. That woman! She shot me, where the hell is she? I frantically began to look around for her but she was nowhere in sight.
"Where is she?" I asked.
"We don't know when we woke up we were all tied up and lying next to each other. She just took some of our clothes and hopped into the bushes." Angel explained as we heard noise coming from the bushes.
"You're all finally awake." The woman said as she slowly walked closer to us. " My name is Sofia, Sofia Rodriguez and I promise you I'm on your side."
I laughed. "Our side? You shot me!"
"I'm sorry about that but their weapon neutralizes our abilities I had to make sure you wouldn't hurt me." Sofia began.
Luke spoke up."Who are those men that attacked us? And where are they now?"
"Those men are part of a highly classified federal division that specializes in dealing with people like us. They were here to capture you two and take you back to a facility where they would have run test and experiments on you eventually trying to make you into one of them."
"One of them?" I asked.
"An agent, as you may have noticed one of those men had ability."
"What was it? I felt like I was being crushed." Luke asked.
"I would imagine so. He has the ability to control gravity, it's called gyro kinesis." Lucas and I looked at each other as it all began to make sense. The being crushed, the floating in mid air his ability, is terrifying. I couldn't think straight because the pain from being crushed was so intense.
"Okay and where are they now?" I asked.
"My partner took them away you don't need to worry about them for now."
She has a partner could it be my father? I started to get nervous I began to sweat and my breathing picked up rapidly.
"Your partner he's my father isn't he?" I looked straight into her eyes as I asked this.
She has an amazing poker face she's so calm and collected I couldn't read her at all. Damn this drug or whatever it is she shot me with.
"No, he isn't. But I do work for your father Sky." I froze I didn't even breathe.
Why am I so shocked? I knew this already, so why am I reacting this way? I guess hearing her say out loud made it more real, what now?
Lucas spoke up again. "Why has Sky's father been having you tail us? What does he gain from it?"
"Isn't it obvious?" Luke, Angel and I all looked at each other confusingly.
Sofia laughed as she took a seat on one of our folding chairs. "He's trying to protect you Sky."
Protect me? He-he doesn't even care about me; I was just a test subject for him.
"Look its better if he explains everything to you. He's on his way here now. He should be here in a couple minutes. Just try to relax, like I said I am on your side okay? He is on your side I know you may feel differently about this right now but there's so much more going on here that you don't know about. Sofia walked over to me placed her hand on my shoulder and looked directly into my eyes.
"Please Sky give him a chance." Something about the way she talked it was comforting, and I had no other choice but to trust her, at least for now. So I nodded approvingly.
About 20 minutes later we heard the bushes moving again and a young man emerged from them. Sofia walked over to him and they began to talk. I looked more closely at the man. He's about 6'1, very well built, his hair is red but it's shaved like a buzz cut and his eyes are green they look like two emeralds. He walked over to where me, Luke and Angel sat and began to cut our bounds.
"Sorry about tying you guys up, but from what Sofia has reported about you two we couldn't skip any precautions." He smiled at us as he was explaining himself. "My name is Cyrus Coleman." He shook each of our hands as we all stood up. We each shook his hand skeptically. He just kept smiling. "I know you don't trust us right now but I assure you, you're safe with us. Your father- "
We heard the bushes moving again. This was it I'm about to see my father for the first time in 16 years. After all that has happened I'm not sure if I'll be happy or furious to see him but I guess we were about to find out. And there he was, my father. He looks just like me or rather I look just like him, brown hair that we both kept short, brown eyes, both of us relatively short, surprisingly I am as tall as him and I stand at about 5'9. He wears glasses though and of course he looks much older but we could be twins. I took a step back as he got closer Lucas felt my discomfort and grabbed my hand I looked over and he was smiling, I'm not though I gave him a sad look. I'm still unsure about this.
My father looked directly at me and began to speak. "Hi son," was all he said as tears came to his eyes.
I don't' know why but I also began to cry.
"I know I hurt you and I know I hurt your mother but before I even began to try and explain myself I want you to know that I never stopped loving you or her. You may not believe me when I say it but it's the truth son."
I was still sobbing like baby as he continued on.
"I'll admit at first this began as one big experiment with my main goal to have my very own kinetic child that I could study and learn from. But the moment you were born things changed, I changed. But I was in too deep to turn back. I was in the middle of trying to find a way to get you and your mother as far away from me as possible. The research facility was making huge progress in ways of finding other people with kinetic abilities thanks to me. So as much as I wanted to take you and your mother and disappear I couldn't. I needed to at least try and right my wrongs."
I dropped to ground where I stood and just sat there and absorbed everything he was telling me. Lucas sat right next to me and never let go. Angel crouched behind and began to rub my shoulders.
"Hey, we're right here with you don't' worry. Angel whispered into my ear. I slowly regained control of myself as I leaned back into Angel.
"I purposely left clues for your mother to find. She needed to believe that I didn't love you two; she needed to hate me, because I wasn't strong enough to hate either of you. After you two were gone, I made sure I never lost track of you, so everywhere you went I knew where you were. I got to watch you grow up and Sky I'm so proud of you." My father began to choke up again.
I stopped crying by now but I would still let out a tear here and there.
"Ok so about 3 years after you two were gone I helped 3 kinetic children escape, which were Sofia, Cyrus and their other partner Jonathan. I was able to get them and their parent's new identities and I was able to successfully get them off the government's radar. After I was able to help them escape I continued to help others escape, although I have to admit I couldn't help many but at least I was able to get some of them out. I am still the lead scientist in that research facility so I am able to find out certain information which helps me make future plans on how to get someone out of the facility. Three years ago I ran into a problem the government began to send kinetic agents into the field to capture kinetics and bring them in to try and make an army."
This was beginning to become a lot to take in but I needed to hear everything.
"So you what, help the kinetics they target?" Lucas asked.
"Precisely, now of course I couldn't do this alone so I looked up some of the children I helped escape all those years ago. I was able to contact 3 of them and they all agreed to help."
"He saved our lives, we owed him." Cyrus said proudly.
"If it wasn't for him you wouldn't even need saving." I hissed.
Cyrus was about to say something but my father stopped him, shook his head and continued with his story.
"It's difficult for me to arrange to have all of these different kinetics saved but if I can even help one get away then what I'm doing is well worth the effort. Recently I was looking through some files on their targets and that's when I saw your file son and Lucas'. I immediately sent Sofia to watch over you and I kept Cyrus close by just in case she needed some muscle."
"Muscle?" I asked.
"Cyrus is a geo kinetic, which means he can move earth with his mind. He's quite skilled at what he can do, they all are. I wouldn't have been able to save as many kinetics as I've been able to without their help."
"So what now?" I asked coldly.
"Well, those agents will return to the facility and report what went wrong. They won't want to deal with resistance since there are plenty of other easier targets they can go for. However I can't be sure exactly until the order is actually given. Sofia and Cyrus will stick around just in case but-"
I cut my father off. "No, I want you gone."
"But Sky I-"
"I said no!" I yelled and I could feel my powers coming back.
"You don't get to just pop back into my life after 16 years and just think I'll listen to your sob story and forget. No! It doesn't work that way father." I lifted him into the air.
"Sky! Put him down." I heard Cyrus but I just could care less, it's just me and my father now. Then I felt the earth quake and when I looked to my left I saw a huge boulder shooting straight for me I stopped it inches from my face without moving a muscle. I tossed it right back towards Cyrus who skillfully jumped onto the boulder and used it to launch himself towards me. I was going to grab him and toss him aside but he stopped mid air and it wasn't me doing it. It was Luke. Luke gently placed Cyrus down.
"Let me talk to him." Luke said to Cyrus as he walked over to me.
"Sky what are you doing?"
"He has to pay, he hurt me Luke." I said in tears.
"But he's back now, Sky he's trying to reconnect. You're not the only one that was hurt. He sacrificed his family and he lost everything."
"He brought that on himself!" I threw my father into the plunge pool.
"That's it!" Cyrus punched the ground and I sank right into it only my head was visible.
"Hey! Let him go!" Luke begged Cyrus.
"Not until he calms down." But I don't need my hands to use my abilities I looked over at the plunge pool and froze it again. Only this time my father was the one who would drown.
Everyone looked at the pool horrified and as if some invisible truce had been signed Lucas, Cyrus and Sofia ran to the pool. In the meantime I was able to telekinetically free myself from the ground. I flew towards the pool to watch him drown. I wanted to see him suffer. I was completely over come with rage, all I could see was him, and all I heard was nothing.
"I'll melt the ice; you two get him out of there." Luke ordered as he began to blast fire onto the ice. His hands looked like flamethrowers. Once there was enough room for someone to get into the pool Sofia dove in shifting into a dolphin mid dive. I noticed what they were doing so I threw Cyrus and Lucas back and refroze the hole they made in the pool.
"Dammit he's completely lost it. Cyrus can you break that layer of ice?"
"Yeah but not with Sky there, he'll just toss me around like a rag doll and refreeze the pool."
"I'll distract him; you get Sofia and Andrews out of there."
"Ok, be careful."
"He won't hurt me."
"Are you sure about that?" Luke just took flight and headed straight for me. He began to talk to me in that soft yet powerful voice that gave me chills.
"Sky please, this isn't you. You don't want to kill your father. You're letting your emotions control you and your abilities Sky. "I could hear Lucas but I couldn't stop myself he was right, my emotions are in control. My anger is overpowering my self control and I don't know how to stop it.
In the meantime Cyrus ripped a huge boulder out of the ground and yelled towards the pool."Sofia get back!" He tossed the boulder into the air jumped up and slammed his fist into the ground. The boulder then came crashing down into the pool which shattered all of the ice covering it. Sofia came shooting out of the water with Skylar's father holding tightly onto her back she shifted into her human form which made Sky's father lose his grip she then shifted into a huge silverback gorilla and snatched up Sky's father and landed softly on the ground. Mr. Andrews was coughing up a storm trying to catch his breath.
"I'm going to end this." Cyrus announced.
"No! Lucas is the only one who can get through to him. Just give them time." Mr. Andrews pleaded with Cyrus. Cyrus reluctantly stood down and watched the boys float in mid air, they weren't saying a word. They were just staring into each other's eyes.
Lucas pulled Skylar into a tight hug and shushed and cooed, "It's ok, I'm here now, so you can stop this." Skylar finally began to calm down as they floated softly to the ground.
"Sky!" Angel yelled as he ran towards Sky and Luke. Luke just threw up his hand signaling Angel to stop.
"Luke, I-I don't know what happened." I said as I snapped back into reality.
"Shh, It's ok you don't have to explain yourself." Lucas cooed as he hugged his boyfriend and rocked him back in forth in a tight embrace.
"I don't blame you Sky. I expected a response like this." My father spoke from across the field. Lucas shot him a death glare as I began to tense up again. Lucas just kept on rocking and shushing me.
"Mr. Andrews, I think it's time you leave. You've caused enough pain already." Angel walked slowly up to me as Lucas talked to my father without looking at him.
"I agree, however I'll still be close by. Give me a chance son, I'm so sorry." Mr. Andrews stood up and placed a cell phone with a note on Sky's bag.
"Let's go." He said to his subordinates and Sofia shifted back into the raven and flew off as Cyrus helped him walk towards the bushes.
"Is he gone?" I asked not speaking to anyone in particular. Luke was still occupied in calming me down so Angel spoke up.
"Yeah hermano (bro) he's gone."
"We'll wait a little and then get out of here. I need to get home." I said.
"Yeah I bet you want to tell your mom wh-" Angel began.
"No. Not yet, I can't do that to her, not now."
After about 20 minutes we finally decided to head out. I walked over to where my bag lay and noticed a phone with a note on it. The note was signed Skylar on the front I just shoved it and the phone into my bag. I grabbed my phone and saw the time it was already almost 6pm. When we got to the car I didn't feel like driving so I just tossed Luke my keys and jumped into the back seat.
The drive home was quiet it. My mind on the hand was racing with a million different thoughts. I'm torn, deep down inside I was that 2 year old boy again who loved his father unconditionally. I wanted so badly to forget all of the heartache he caused and run into his arms and never let go. But how could I? I felt the car come to a stop.
"Sky, I can stay with you guys tonight if you want." Angel turned and rubbed my arm. I sat up and hugged my best friend.
"Don't worry about it hermano (bro). I'll be fine I'll call you tomorrow." Angel hugged me one last time said bye to Luke and left.
I remained in the back seat and lay back down. I noticed we drove by my house, because somehow Luke already knew I would rather stay with him tonight then face my mom at home.
"Thanks." I whispered.
I felt the car stop again and Luke was at my door in a second. We didn't bother to take anything in with us. We walked into Luke's house and I noticed no one was home. As I looked around confused Luke spoke up.
"My brother isn't home, perv." I quickly looked up and Luke was just smiling at me I finally laughed for the first time tonight. "No, but really they all went out for dinner and a movie. They won't be back till later tonight." Luke explained.
We got to Luke's room and his bed was already set up we both just collapsed onto his bed and let out a huge sigh in unison.
I laughed again. "This is getting a little creepy."
"I kind of like it." Luke smiled as he nuzzled into my neck. "You okay?" he asked. I rubbed my nose into his hair and kissed the top of his head. "I don't know."
"Do you want to talk about it?"
I just unloaded what I've been thinking about on the way here. "For sixteen years- he claims to have been watching over me? Wanting to contact me? Why didn't he?" I ranted.
"Babe it was too risky, you heard him, he was already trying to find a way to get you and your mother away from any danger. Do you know how hard it must be for him to look you into the eyes, the person he loves most in the world and see the pain he's caused you?" Luke sat up and lifted me up to look into his eyes. "Sky he's trying, you want my opinion?" I just weakly nodded I could already feel what he wanted to say. "Give him a chance Sky." I looked down at my hands but Luke quickly lifted my head back up to look him the eyes. "Sky I can feel it you want to give him chance. So do it, what can go wrong? You're gaining a father, the father you've always wanted."
"But he isn't the father I always wanted. The thing's he's done, how can I just forget that?"
"He made a mistake. A big one yes, but he's regretted it every day of his life. Every day he was away from you I bet he was hurting."
Luke was making sense, but I'm still not sure if I want to open myself to my father. We still don't even know the story behind how he knows Lucas. I shivered at the thought of what he did to Lucas when he was younger.
"Let me sleep on it, this was just too much to handle for one day." I rested my head on Luke's chest and tried to fall asleep.
After about 2 hours of unsuccessfully trying to sleep I decided to go for a walk. I checked to see if Luke was awake, but he was out cold with his mouth wide open catching flies. I laughed as I closed his mouth and gave him a soft kiss. I slowly crept out of bed and tried to grab my car keys without making any noise but I failed, the keys jingled and I froze in place as I heard Luke shift in the bed. When I was sure he was still asleep I quickly exited his room and went to my car. I opened the trunk went into my bag and grabbed the note and phone my father left me earlier. I also grabbed my blue hoodie and took off towards the beach. I kicked off my shoes and walked onto the sand.
As I walked down the beach I noticed a piece of driftwood big enough for me to sit on. I walked over and took a seat and just stared at the closed note.
I took a deep breath and opened the letter.
I don't even know how I should even begin to apologize to you and your mother. I betrayed her trust and I regret that decision every single day of my life. I'm constantly reminded of my betrayal, it kills me and yet I deserve it all. It doesn't matter how many people I save or help, because what I did to you two is unforgiveable. I know this, but I beg you son to find it in your heart to give me another chance. I never stopped loving you since the day you were born and now as I know your feelings towards me, I still love you son. Nothing will ever change that, even if you decide to exclude me from your life forever. I want you to know that you are still my son no matter what and I will always be there to protect to you. I'm sorry.
I love you son, Dad
I'm leaving a phone for you. It's a special phone that one of the kinetics I helped escape created. The government will never be able to trace it. If you ever need me or if you just want to talk to me please don't hesitate to call me, I'm speed dial #1.
Tears were in my eyes as I read the letter. I pulled out the phone he left and held my thumb over the number 1 key. But I couldn't press it, not yet. I still need time. I carefully folded the letter and returned it to it's envelop.
"Give him a chance." I quickly jumped to my feet and pulled water from the ocean and extended it towards the voice I heard. I already knew it was Sofia. She had her hands up in the air. "I come in peace."
I just dropped the water and sat back on the driftwood. "What do you want?" I asked coldly.
Sofia walked over and sat next to me on the driftwood.
"First off I wanted to apologize for shooting you, but I've seen you fight and I didn't want to risk getting my ass handed to me." She smiled and nudged me. I just stared at her with that "wtf is wrong with you" look.
Sofia cleared her throat. "I wanted to tell you how amazing your father is."
"Amazing? He's ran experiments on his own son. On you! How is that amazing?"
"Look I didn't say he was perfect." Sofia said.
"But he's making up for it." Sofia placed her hand on my leg. "If it wasn't for him I'd still be locked away in that facility. And if it wasn't for him a lot of the other subjects in the facility would be much worse off."
I sat quietly and stared out to sea. "I understand Sofia, I-I just need time."
Sofia smiled and rubbed my leg. "That's all I ask." She stood up and began to walk away.
"Are you still going to be following us?" I asked.
"Yes, it's still not safe for you yet. Your father thinks they might leave you two alone for now, but you both of you have three abilities so I doubt they'll stay away for too long."
"What does our having three abilities have to do with anything?" I asked curiously.
"That's extremely rare Sky; even having two abilities is rare. So, two kinetics with three abilities that are constantly around each other would definitely keep you on their radar. If it's not because they want you on their side it's because they think you're a threat. So just watch your back ok?"
I just nodded and Sofia shifted into the raven again and flew off leaving all her clothes behind. That girl must lose a lot of clothes. I laughed as I walked back to Luke's house. I noticed Luke's parent's car was in their driveway however all of the lights in the house were still off. They must have all just gone straight to sleep I thought. I walked around to the front door and Riku was lying on their front porch with his arms behind his head and his right leg over his left knee staring at the full moon that was out tonight.
I slowly walked up to the porch. "H-Hey Riku," I didn't even startle him he just looked over and smiled.
I weakly smiled back. He noticed something was wrong right away.
"You okay Sky?"
"I'm fine; I don't want to bore you with my problems." I smiled as I tried to walk past him. He sat up and grabbed my arm.
"I have time, if you want to talk."
"I warned you." I smiled as I sat next to him. I explained to him everything that happened today, I don't even know why I did. But when I'm around him it's like I'm around Luke, it feels nice.
"Whoa." Riku exclaimed.
"So what are you going to do?"
"I don't know yet, but hopefully I make the right choice."
"You will Sky, you're a smart kid. You'll make your revelation in your own time without the influence of anyone else. And when you do I'm sure you'll be happy with the outcome."
"Thanks Riku I really needed to vent to someone who wouldn't give me a biased opinion." I smiled over to Riku, he unexpectedly hugged me and I hugged him back.
"Let's do this again sometime." Riku said. I stood up and headed towards the door.
"For sure." I closed the door behind me and headed back to Luke's room and he was still out cold his mouth wide open again. I stripped down to my boxer briefs and shivered from the breeze that came from the window I quickly jumped under the covers and cuddle up to Luke.
"Where'd you disappear to?" Luke whispered into my ear. I guess he woke up while I was out.
"I just needed to clear my head." Luke stretched and cuddled closer into me and kissed my neck. "Feel any better?"
"Yeah, I think I do."
"Good, I'm glad." Luke kissed my neck one last time and we both drifted off to sleep.
