3.111 – Ball of Confusion

3.111 – Ball of Confusion

[Present Day]

My eyes jolt open, I’ve finally remembered everything. Every date with destiny, every time we dodged death. The love of my life, my soulmate and how she was taken from me. Rage fills me, I bounce my foot up and down, trying to calm myself. The only break from the rage is when a wave of sadness crosses me. Unfortunately, she’s not my only loss.

I don’t need to kill Isaac; I need to find him. Once I’m back at full strength, I can try that reaching out through the spiritual plane. I’ve never done it before but I’ve still got the Book of Adze and I’m sure there’s some answers in there. Sampson, I need to find him as well. My brain hurts, my chest is tight. I know there’s nothing wrong with them right now, but I need to pull it together. I have a lot to do now. I need to get back to Chicago and find my family. After I’ve done that, I’ll kill Pearl. I’ll kill the Marson family. Are they even around anymore? I don’t know. I have to figure it out. I can’t lose any more people, and I can’t let anyone else lose people because of them. I can’t lose my head.

I can hear someone force open a door to the building. It’s the Jabari kid again, I can smell him. I don’t really want to deal with him at the moment. I could just leave but that wouldn’t solve anything.

“Hello, are you in here,” Jabari shouts loudly.

“How did you find me.”

“I used the find my phone app.”

Is it wrong to think I can use this kid? I can find my way around the city, he can probably bring me up to speed on changes in the world. All he wants is information on vampires, right? I can give him that, it’s mutually beneficial. Then we split. I put my team together and get revenge.

“Hey, I need to go the bank,” I sit up in the pew and he quickly approaches.

“We’ll have to wait until they open, but I’ve got summer school.”

“Why do you have summer school?”

“I’m getting ahead on the next year so I can graduate early.”

“That is idiotic. We’re going to the bank.”

“Can I have my phone back?”

“Yeah, but I’m going to need a laptop, a lot of information” I toss the phone to him. “And we need to go get pizza,” at least he won’t think it’s a kidnapping.

“I thought you would just drink my blood or something. Do vampires eat food?”

“Some do, and I don’t drink from people.”

“That’s so crazy.”

“Let’s go, I’ve got a lot of work to do, and you’ve got a lot to learn.”
