When the worlds turn it back on you, you fight your way back in.
Many people question their abilities and their place in the world. Everyone searches for the answers but in the end dose anyone find it, now days it harder as the as the world went though destruction and many people didn’t make it and some say it was going to be the end of the world.
As it ended out came new and improve species even humans. Now humans can either be what we were before, called human, a super intelligent person who is born to do one thing better than anyone and get better at it as they grow up, ether being a spy, braking any lock and even understanding the animals. They are called G types, the genius they are accepted depending on your gift, some don’t even talk about it and hid it, it genetic and run though some blood lines. But their one gift many don’t want, a type many fear this is called the A type also known as Anima. They are given the power of an animal, some say they became half. They not born like his but as a child they gain this abilities some say when they are close to death or need it the most. This is fear by many since some A types can’t control their animal side like other and because of what they are they are, rejected or turn to slaves, while some are killed on the spot. They hide their odd forms. Some pity these children or even reject them, many child walk alone with no home hating what they became. Even so many people want this amazing gift. Out of this all human rule the land and kept the two in line scared that they will take over. Unknown how the two types came into this world but each passing day the human world slowly heading to an all out war agents the three types and the victor rule the world.
In a small town live many human and a few G types but no A types since in this part of the world where any A types are ether sent away to prison depending on what animal you are, doesn’t matter if you’re a kind person, since everyone scared of them while other are killed. In this town a family was well know as a family full of G types who are famous and the parent use to work for the government and sometime still do, while the other already have a future all plan thanks to their gifts. The oldest Joe is 17 who can open any lock and get into anything, computer master at unlocking anything, since he was a child he could unlock anything now growing up he the best in the world he doesn’t need much or know anything about you to find out your password. He feared by many as no one can hid there secrete in behind any lock. When he was eight he join the government to do top secrete job to protect his country, and now he planning to do full time when he leave school which he looking forward too as he can leave his old life behind.
The second oldest Mille who is 15 and is a pro fighter, master at all move she is a lethal weapon, with no weapon other than her hands she can knock out anyone. Without training she could do karate and marshal art. She been train by masters and has been competing in matches to test her strength, she deciding if to be a teacher or enter compactions around the world, at the moment she helping the government even though she hate it.
Kyle and Kayla are twins age 13 who are good at different things Kayla is super skilled, she can make anyone unable to move, she can also take away people gifts and there animal gift away from them for an hour or two, just by her touch. She wanted by all but too young to choose what she want yet. Kyle is a super spy, he sneaking and can get past anything laser, men and robots. He knows all and the best spy there is, he loves his gift and uses it to know everything about everyone, he does work at the government with his sister sometimes but only when he wants to. He doesn’t want to do anything as he likes to lie around.
The two youngest are Ricky and Crow, Ricky is 12 and unlike anyone he can understand and talk to animals and get them to do anything he wants, unknown how but he a master, many hope he can control the A types. But he always sick and never uses it that much. The youngest of the family is crow age 10, he able to jump very high up and ran fast like he flying, flexible and quick, many are unsure what he is. He look different from his siblings and many think he adopted because of his black, feathery like hair and his big brown eyes, while the other are ether brown or blonde hair with green or blue eyes.
The parent are famous for their skill the mother is a pro swordsmen she can do anything with a sword and is the best in the world while the dad can work any machinery and drive any vehicle, plane, truck, sub, and use any computer. The family lives in a big house and never worried about money, since the government pay for everything as long as they help them and do what they say. Some say they are slave, pets while they think of it as pay back, they get to live in a big house, get great medical care and education and accept in the human world, and all they have to do is help them out. They see it as fair, it what the kids were raise to believe.
It a school day and everyone was at school enjoying their peaceful life without the care about the future, since once school over they have to face the hard world of fighting to the top. The six kids all go there and since all the rich children go together all in once huge school, no matter what the age. For some school was a place to get high up and get a start at their career while for other it a place to make friends and get connection, while for one person it a place to hang out and met new people and see everyone personality and point of view on the new world.
Crow and Ricky walking the outside in the courtyard as the tree loses there leaves, walking around happy Ricky never took his eye of crow, since he always run off causing trouble, a rumor gone around that he bring back luck, since lately black luck as just come whenever he around and most of the time it not his fault.
‘So what class do we have today?’ ask crew smiling away looking at the leaves wanted to catch them all.
‘We have history and PE then home’ he answered and as he turn he seen that crow had ran off once again. Ricky started to panic and looking around calling out crow then ran off looking for him even asking the birds to help him.
Crow was running around chasing a butterfly then he found two teen looking up at the roof at a ball that is stuck thinking how to get it crow said ‘I will get it’ with his huge grin and as he got ready to jump up Mille seen him and ran over and distract everyone in the area as crow jump up into the air and these huge black wings came out and he flew up and got the ball and came back down and hid his wings and pass the ball to the two boy they thank him and ask how he got it down mille jump in and said ‘he a great jumper, the best, well come crow let go’. Then she pushes him away and they wall off and crow asks ‘why did you lie?’
‘because if people found out your an Anima, you will be sent away and since you’re a crow you will in prison or even killed you know people are superstitious and think crows are the massager of death, the black wings don’t help’ she explain.
‘Well they are just wings, don’t mean anything, they just allow me to fly’ he said seeing nothing wrong with having wings or being an anima. Mille got tired of this every day the same thing he would use his gifts. He the only A type in the whole area, that what they believe, he not a G but an A with the gift of a crow he could fly, grew claws, swift and fast and a good jumper. He can tell what type you are a human, genius or an anima. Ricky arrived and said tired and out of breathe ‘there you are, you can’t run off what if you got lost’
‘What if someone see and tell mum and dad, they don’t know, only us kids do, if they knew you will be send away, you got smart or that it’ shouted mille. Then crow look at her and said ‘ok I will not use my wings unless there is a good reason’. Mille look at him knowing any reason good for him.
‘Ricky watch him ok, I know it hard but since you have that gift and around his age, at home we will take over ok, take it easy’ she said and walk off and Ricky look at him, seeing crow smiling face always made him feel better, but deep down he was sick the reason was his own gift, if he try to control an animal or Anima that doesn’t want to listen to him, he loses energy and some think life force each time weakling him to a point of collapsing. So lately he has been tired, since he has been sent on odd jobs for the government. Heading to class the two stuck together, crow didn’t know about Ricky sickness, only the rest of the family, since he didn’t want him to know so he acted like he was healthy and full of energy even though he was tired and could barely walk. Their family live on secrete and pain, everyone was tired and had a lot of issues since they always get sent on jobs, where they could die and if fail a lot of people could did, they never had a brake. While doing this they are hiding their hatred of their life and the secrete of crow being an anima from everyone even their friends and parents. Which is hard since some people have made some tool that can tell what you are and even what gift you have, everyone one of them never had a day off, Plus the anima mark that tell you what type of animal they are and give them they power to transform, crow was on his right shoulder which is hard to hided when swimming or having a bath. Hiding it at home was the hardest, since crow love his wings and his abilities he always uses it and gets the whole household on the edge. They don’t hate him but love him, they love his smile and his childish ways and his easy going attitude, he a strange child who happy the way he is. They don’t want him to change, he the light in their dark world.
At home the whole family was training, each practicing their skills, each in there own room their father walk around checking on them, he brought fear in the household and many can’t say no to him. Watching everyone and telling them how to improve and giving out missions and checking their work. He made sure everyone was healthy, happy and in full control. Their mother watch her children in happiness knowing none of them are the outcaste, if one was born not born a G type they would have felt alone and unskilled. As training went crow sat down eating cake while Ricky sat down doing both of their homework. His dad came over and asked ‘how you feeling rick? Make sure you’re not over doing it, Crow have you taking care of rick?’
‘I’m fine dad and crow is a huge help, you don’t need to keep checking on us, I’m fine I just need to lay of using my abilities for awhile’ explain Ricky annoyed then he smile to let him know he fine, Crow look and was confused and as his dad left and crow ask ‘are you ok? What wrong? Don’t tell me you’re sick I know I will became your doctor’
‘I’m fine crow, you know dad he just being over protective, since I’m an importance to the government, you don’t need to take care of me, I’m meant to take care of you, just kept doing what you do and stop worry about me I don’t need you too’ said Ricky and went back to working and crow said worried placing his cake down ‘but you seem down lately like you have no energy to do anything, I know I can’t do the school work but I could go on your mission that way you can rest ok?’ crow gave Ricky a smile and Ricky look at him full of anger and shouted at him ‘stop it, it my job to watch you not the other way around, beside these mission is for my family alone and you’re not part of that and don’t ever bring it up again!’
‘ok I wont ask again and I won’t use my wing anymore and also I won’t be a burden, I’m going to get more cake’ said crow upset he was annoyed that Ricky said that but he was more worried about his health even though he had no idea what going on, only that Ricky is getting tired more easy and having a hard time catching up. He felt bad that he had to take care of him but he had no idea what to do, they never allowed him to do anything he felt useless, but if he tried to help he might expose his wings and doing so would bring more pain and be more of a burden as his family tries to protect him from his fate.
While Ricky felt bad for what he said but he didn’t want crow to get in trouble or worry, so he felt he had too even if he became hated he didn’t want crow to see the harsh world he knew a world where not everyone can smile and that being different could led one to a life in prison. As crow headed back he seen Joe who had finish his training and as he seen crow upset he asks ‘what up little bro? Did you do something again?’
‘No, I don’t think so, you got a mission again’ he said as he seen the folder in Joe’s hand.
‘Yeah, it an easy on I should be back in a week or so, how school? I heard that you almost was court again you should be a bit more careful even if you helping others any won’t see it that way’ he asks changing the subject.
‘Fine and I was only getting a ball on the roof, Joe why don’t I get mission? I thought everyone got one, I have a gift can’t I help out? Aren’t I part of the family?’ he asked confused.
‘No you can’t! you shouldn’t worry about it, just enjoy school and never talk about this again these mission are for G types only’ shouted Joe and he left and crow felt like he was no help, all he dose it cause trouble and yet they wont let him help out, not even in cooking, cleaning or on mission, he doesn’t even do his own homework. The next day at school Ricky look worst then normal, he had a hard time staying awake and couldn’t kept up with crow or the work. He was normally left looking around for crow or for where he was even if crow was next to him. As the days pass many of the children left on mission and Ricky was left alone with crow during that time the two didn’t speak much, since crow felt like if he spoke he could upset him. Ricky wonder also what to say. One morning crow had vanished and Ricky tried to hided it form his parents, since they would sent out many men who might found crow and also that he an anima. Ricky went looking in many places crow to go, as his sibling return they all looked but he was never found.
A month later in Ricky’s bed he woke to an odd but familiar feeling, he knew who it was by his side but he felt it was a dream as the warm that came from been wrap around by the lard black wings. Even if people said they mean evil while you where wrap with them you felt warm and safe like nothing he felt before. Feeling himself hug by small arms he relies himself to see as he seen crow sleeping away like a baby he scream and feel of the bed. As a loud bang was heard though out the house his father went to rush in but Ricky rush over blocking the door and said ‘everything fine, crow just fell out of the bed, again’.
‘ok, as long as everyone ok’ he said and walk off and as he told everyone what the noise was and as they heard the name crow they rush to the room to see crow stretching his arms as he sat on the bed.
‘crow you’re back where did you go?’ cried Ricky confused , mad and full of joy as he rush over and gave him a big hug and was crying knocking him.
‘Can’t remember, what I know is that one day I’m here the next on the bed’ he explain as everyone hug him. As they let go and look at him Mille said all happy ‘ok I’m going to make you a big breakfast since I know you must be hungry, with that big travel’.
Kyle and Kayla hug him and said taking turns specking ‘crow, why did you go? I look everywhere’
‘She wouldn’t stop crying, she almost made our room a pool’ said Kyle with a smile.
‘Shut up, I was just very sad, I was scared he was taken away or killed’ she said and the two left arguing as Ricky push them out, Joe came over but just gave him a hug then left to help with the cooking. Ricky sat next to him and knew something was up.
‘What wrong, you don’t seem to be happy?’ he asked smiling and trying to cheer him up.
‘Everyone missed me, I thought everyone hated me it going to make thing hard’ he said looking down with tears coming down.
‘What? Your home and safe, you miss a lot, we even trick our parent to believe you were here the whole month it was funny, and of cause we miss you, your family come on let talk about this at school’ he said happy.
‘I’m not going to school, I need to go and find anime’ he said looking at Ricky being serious taking away his tears.
‘Anime? You mean the Japanese TV shows, I guess we could go out and find some I wonder where they are’ said Ricky thinking about it.
‘No, I mean my kind, you have your kind I need my own, I want to travel and find people like me, be with other who are like me’ said crow trying not to shout so everyone wouldn’t hear him but he was crying.
‘I see, I guess anyone would want that, but I though you would later on, does it have to be now?’ he asked upset.
‘Yes, I do love it here and you guys are my family but I’m not a genius I am a anime and I need to find my own anime family, I will come back once I found them’ Crow explain putting a smile on and his eyes close looking cute and happy trying to hid his sadness and fear.
‘Ok, we will find some way to make the parent believe your fine, everyone will understand, I will tell them at school, there is where we will part after school’ said Ricky happy, he was sad but knew it was something he must do or he would of never mention it. As they enjoy a huge feast fit for a king the parent didn’t understand why but was glad everyone was happy and full of life that was in till school happen. All at school, Ricky and crow told everyone and as the whole group was shock; they were also mad and felt like hitting him back into his senses. They know why he wanted to and understood but they didn’t know why now he just came back.
‘How could you? Just drop this now we miss you I don’t care if you want to find other like you, you can’t leave you just came home, I hate you’ shouted Kayla and ran off and Kyle look and shouted ‘you couldn’t wait a week or a month, fine go we don’t need you’ then he ran off after her as she cried. Mille look at him and said ‘I understand crow it something you must do, but it just too hard right now, so bye’ she then walk off Joe look at crow a look full of hate. He said nothing he held his words and anger and left which was the worst thing he could have done, shouting he could handle but nothing hurt crow more than no words. Crow held his tears and Ricky stood there and said ‘don’t worry they are just upset, I’m sure after school they will give you a proper goodbye, come let go’. He started walking and crow look and said ‘I’m going now, I never said I was going to school, so bye Ricky and take care ok’ he smiled and titled his head and was about to walk off and Ricky look and smiled and said ‘I never said I was going to say bye, I told you I will always watch you, so I’m going there no way you can make it alone, you probably get lost or killed in the first hour’. Crow smile grew and he ran over and jump into his arms hug him tight, refusing to let go he cried in joy and Ricky held him tight and hug him back. The two left school behind heading out on their mission to find anima, with no money or adults they were left to fend on themselves. None of them pack for school anyway. Heading on a dangerous mission in a world where they aren’t accepted.
It a mermaid
A month later
Near a town was a huge forest and between the town and the forest was a famous circus, it was famous for its animals, clowns and tricks but in it was something no other place had. Inside was the mermaid princess. In a tube of water that stood up she floated their unable to move. She had long golden hair that flow with the water, a blue tail that shine so bright with stripes, she wore a blue shells with sparkling fabric that flow from the shells down her soft fair skin. Her eyes were crystal blue and she was the most beautiful creature you ever seen. Many didn’t know if it was real or not. Some say it an anima while other believes it is the mermaid princess. As she look at the crowed as the owner of the circus talk about the story of the princess, as she look she found a small head pocking though the tent, he look young and had spiky, bushy and mess up black hair and big brown eyes. She look and said, in her mermaid language that only the owner knew and look and he seen the head, he called out ‘get that kid’. The workers rush for the kid who was stuck and as he was pull in the push the people away with his feet and jump into the air and wings came out and the costumer shouted out ‘the angel of death’ as they scream the owner look at him with an idea and as he flew around destroying the tent bring it down. He climb out of the falling tent and put his wings away and look around and was about to run off but was hit on the head by a frying pan and fell to the ground. He was knocked out cold then he was taken away and locked in a room where he slept on a bed.
That night he lay in the bed still in his uniform. The owner took his hat off and his long black hair fell and a girl walk in, wearing a pink top and a flow pink skirt it was the mermaid itself.
‘Good work catching him, now we have a new member who will make us rich’ he said in a voice that was deep and brought shiver to everyone around him.
‘Why? You have me I brought this place more money than it ever seen, just let the kid go’ the mermaid said in her sweet and young voice.
‘No, I want this place to became famous and even the kings would come and watch it, we need the kid’ he said.
‘fine then, get me new pearls I’m tired of fake, everything around here fake, I want real and a bigger tank, I can’t swim in it so my tail get cramps’ she complained.
‘fine but if your thinking of taking the kid and running away remember, I have something you want, around my neck your prize possession’ he said and pull out a box tied to a string, whatever was in it force the mermaid to stay. As he left she growled look at the child sleeping and wonder why he had come here. As she was about to leave the kid woke up and said ‘hay your that anime form the tank, I’m one too you’re the first I seen in ages so you want to join me in a quest to find anime?’ he smiled which was cute and innocent he didn’t even care where he was or what happen.
‘what?’ she ask confused, she wonder what was wrong with him since normally people would be freak out but he was calm and even looking around at everything like this was a friend’s room.
‘So you’re coming right?’ he asked again looking cute and trying to drag her in and making it hard to say no.
‘Sorry kid but no I work here beside I don’t have time to baby sit’ then she left, Crow look at her confused and said ‘a fish, I wonder what fish I know I will ask her tomorrow after I get some rest I haven’t had a good sleep in ages’
During that night the mermaid went into the owner room and try to steal her stuff back, but she was court and as he grab her arm and said ‘I knew you were going to try and get away, but I tell you now no one ever get away from me and lives’.
The next day Crow was force to try new clothes on for his new image. He wore a black clock and it cover his head, he look so cute that no one would think he was evil and so he put red paint on him to look like blood and told him to be evil, since he kidnapping the mermaid princess. As he walks out and see her tired up to a pole in her tank unable to move, She moves her head trying to speak but her mouth was covered by tape.
‘See everything set, now go over and be evil’ said the owner
‘Ok, hay guess what I’m kidnapping you’ he said with a smile and she look at him like he was an idiot. She was tied up and forces to be here agents her will and he thinks it all a game. As the people came in the owner said ‘welcome to the mermaid princess, what this, a massager of death has come to take her away’. As Crow call his wings out and everyone grew in fear and started saying it death and he will kill her. He look at everyone and gave of an evil smiled and flew to the top of the tank and stood there saying ‘if I am death then if I touch you, you die right?’ and he tiled his head looking cute and he jump down and flew over everyone as they scream and ran off and the owner shouted out ‘your meant to kidnapped the princess’
‘But she already tied up, it no fun’ he called out flying around chasing everyone.
‘Get him now’ he called and as the circus worker went to get crow but as he stop and look at them he said ‘but if you catch me you have to touch me right that mean you will die, do you want to take the risk?’. The men look and then ran off in fear the owner grew mad and tried to find away to catch him while crow flew over and knocks over the tank and she came out and as he sat next to her ripping the tap of her face she said ‘gets me out of here now’
‘But you want to stay? It your job to be tied up’ he said and was about to get up.
‘I don’t, look if you free me I will travel with you’ she called out pleading to him and crow smiled and did his giggle and untied her. He flew over and grabs his backpack and then flew over to the owner and grabs the necklace and said ‘thank for the pay, I hope I play the reaper well’ then put the necklace in his mouth and pick up the mermaid and flew away.
He went as far as his wing could go till they gave up and he fell into the water as crow flapped his wings trying to stay afloat the mermaid grab his arm and took him over to the land were the tree were the thickest in order to hide. Crow sat on the land and shook the water of him before he put his wings away as she look and see the girl climb on to the land and went far from the water as she could. Crow then said ‘that was fun, we should do that again’
‘no thank, I rather not fall from the sky again’ she said but her voice was deeper and as crow look closer he seen her pull of her wig and short blue hair fell, as she fit his hair it shown to be long and his hair cover one of the ears and most of his right eye. As she remove the pearl earring from his ears and the pearl crown off the wig and Crow shouted out confused ‘it a guy’
‘Yes I’m a guy, just because I have a tail that man force me to dress and act as a girl all the time, it was a pain, I hate being called a girl’
‘Well your face dose make you look like one’ said crow thinking about it and the guy shouted out ‘that mean nothing you look like an five year old, also the angle of death with those wings, yet you’re not’.
‘You’re the second to think so, oh I’m Crow the anime of a crow, you?’ he said happy sitting next to him
‘I’m Taraki the fish and isn’t it anima?’ he said confused.
‘That what I said, anyway I’m taking these black clothes off, it too hot’ he said and started to take of his clothe and Taraki jump back and shouted ‘hay don’t change in open area and in front of people’ then he look and seen he had clothes underneath. He was wearing long jean with boots, he had a red tank top and on the back of his head was two feathers both white with red or blue tips. He had an ear plate on his left ear. He had a sleeve less jacket and on his right shoulder was a marking of a wing which was his anima mark proving he is an anima. He looked at Taraki and smiled, he soon question if he had this all plan or not. Taraki took his shirt off to show he was wearing black pants but he had not top. As Taraki got up and he heard someone coming he look and was ready to attack then a kid came out with brown hair and in the same uniform as Crow was wearing. Crow smiled and shouted out ‘Ricky, you find me that mean the game is over hooray and it took you only three days you’re getting better’
‘How many time do I need to tell you, we are not playing hid and seek, I only said hide because there was soldiers coming and you had your wing flapping around’ shouted Ricky annoyed and had a bird on his shoulder.
‘Why didn’t you say so, I been waiting for days, hay I met a new friend his name is Taraki he a fish’ shouted crow happy and ran over to Taraki and grab his arm and as the two look at each over and he seen the pearl and Ricky grab Crow and said ‘come on let get away from the cross dresser, I told you many times don’t go near gender confused people’
‘Hay I’m not, and beside I promise him I will travel with him and who are you anyway’ growled Taraki.
‘he not a cross dresser, the owner of a circus force him to be a girl because he a fish, but some call him a mermaid, any way this is Ricky my brother he a genius he can talk to animals’ said Crow smiling and then seen the bird on Ricky shoulder and started to talk to it, due to crow being half bird he was able to understand birds.
‘So you’re a anima, I’m Ricky sorry about that, crow always finding strange people, last person was this guy trying to trick him he was a women in trouble, no idea why, he a bit slow and trusting it got him into a lot of trouble and if I don’t watch him all the time he always get lost and find trouble’ explain Ricky and put his hand out.
‘Well I guess that explains it, he is a bit wired, hay do you have any clothes I could borrow?’ ask Taraki feeling a bit cold with no much clothes on.
‘no, I didn’t bring any, I was going to buy more clothes but Crow goes though the money I earn like there no tomorrow, anyway crow should have his uniform you could wear that’ he said and as Taraki try it on it was too small and he couldn’t even fit in it.
‘I guess it wouldn’t work it too small’ said Taraki throwing it on the bags.
‘Really but he is ten like you so there shouldn’t be much differences’ said Ricky confused as he look at crow who was just running around playing with the birds like a child even with his wings out.
‘I’m 14 so I’m guess no and I’m not that young and couldn’t you tell by the height difference’ said Taraki annoyed at him for thinking him as kid like him.
‘oh so you’re the oldest I’m eleven which make you the money man, you’re in charge of money, also a hint don’t give into crow he will go though that money like there no tomorrow, I guess you could wear this dark reaper thing, till we find a town and get you some clothes, Mr. bird do you know where the closest town?’ said Ricky. The bird started twitting away and crow was in the air and Taraki was confused and surprise he never hared of a genius that was able to talk to animal.
‘The town is just out of the forest, that way so we’re almost there, you can put your stuff in crow bag since it always empty’ said Ricky and he started to walk and crow flow over and asked ‘so do you like food?, I love it I know we should eat when he get to town’
‘No, you can eat some fruit we find in the forest, it cheaper that way’ he answered and as he put his stuff in his bag that he pass it to crow. Crow look at him and knew he will be a tough on to crake but soon he will fall like everyone else as they always do. Ricky look and laugh knowing it going to be a funny walk with crow and the new kid, since Crow never give up and love to get people to do what he wants and Taraki seem like a guy who don’t listen to other, so it a battle of will power.
As they travel the two talked and mostly look for crow since he love to see the world and the animals, it was like his first time into the world. Ricky found it fun and Taraki found it nice but wonder, they didn’t look like they are related or talk the same, he knew someone was up, as they travel and Taraki asked Ricky ‘you’re not brothers are you? Even if one parent is change there always something that look the same the voice, face, hair I know we just met but I would like to know if I’m travel with you two, and it seem like he doesn’t know’
‘hmm you’re the first to ever get that, even at school no one could tell he was different, a year ago I was on a mission for the government and as I was coming home I found him, tired and lost, he had no idea who he was or anything only that he was an anima, he loves his wings and normally use them but because of where we lived, any anima are taken and because of his wing many mistake him as something else, me and my brothers and sisters hid this from everyone even our parent afraid that he would be taken away. I soon name him Crow after the bird he was and he seem to love them a lot. We never told him we weren’t related because he seem so happy and he thought of us as family, I made a promise I would always watch and protect him so no matter what I will stay by his side and kept him alive. I even had to do more mission that were dangerous to kept him from doing anything, taken his and mine, but now he want to find anima so I decide to come along’ he explain thinking back at the moment they met, in the cold snow and he was laying there, his first words and the game they play and all the fun they had. That whole year went so fast and yet it seems they known each other for longer than that like they were really brothers.
‘you know he will find out, even so it nice I never met anyone like you, I thought all G types and human were stupid doing whatever they want and trying to get high in the world’ he said.
‘is that what make a human, no matter what you are your still you and everyone want to be high because if you are high in the world you feel safe, but isn’t it better not too, since no one will try to take you down,
So being someone who unknown and not high up is safer but for me I just want to be with my friends and family, what do you think?’ he asked. Taraki thought about it and went silent Ricky smiled and felt he got him thinking, everyone has their own options and thinking and as they walk the three grew closer as they talk and Taraki understood them a lot more, he could see their bond and friendship even though they are different, not just in type, personality and everything, the only thing that they same is that they are alive. Yet they will stay by each other side and look out for each other. He hopes to find this one day with someone. Reaching town they found a shop but everything cost a lot and they had no money.
‘I could sell my pearls?’ said Taraki.
‘Yeah but it pointless really, you should save it for a rainy day we could easily find a job somewhere and earn money, where crow?’ said Ricky and they look around and he was nowhere. Soon he came out with a top and pants and said ‘here Taraki I get some clothes the man gave it to me for free, after I explain that we have no money and you sold your clothes get us food, now you’re wearing a blanket’
‘Thanks but you didn’t have to do that, I could of found away without you lying’ he explain surprise to what he done.
‘I didn’t lie, you did sell your clothes for food and you are wearing a blanket’ Crow explain and Taraki grab the bag of Crow and seen the girl clothes he had were gone and Taraki shouted ‘you sold my clothes for food? Without telling me’
‘Well you aren’t going to wear them and you didn’t buy me any food beside you were going to sell your pearl which is more important than clothes, so it ok if your happy I will take whatever I need to get the thing you need because that what friends do’ explain crow happy and Taraki was happy for what he did but annoyed he stole.
‘I guess he doesn’t understand theft yet in any case it has happen, so let it pass and go find work’ said Ricky thinking about it and acting all mature while Taraki was mad and fell like attacking crow and bashing him till he can’t move.
‘what wrong it not like you’re going to wear them, it was girl clothes, sometime I wonder if you’re really a boy or not’ said crow and walk off.
‘that it I don’t care if you save me your dead’ said Taraki and went to get him and Ricky grab his hair and Taraki stop and turn and Ricky said ‘now, now he got a point even though he should of ask, let it go shouting will get nowhere, now let go and find a place for you to change’. Ricky walk off and Taraki was mad but as he calm down and grab the bag he followed but he still felt like attacking him.
They arrive at a hotel where Taraki went to change; as he came out in his new clothes he had a blue top with cream pants, he look more like a boy now and his real age. He felt better being in boy clothes then wearing skirts and walking barefoot. Heading down he see crow cleaning the floor and Ricky greeting the people and showing them to their rooms. Taraki asked ‘what are you doing and wearing?’ looking at them in butler clothes and confused to way they are cleaning Ricky explain ‘I said find jobs, and we did were working here, we get a free room and meal and for every tip we get we get to kept it’
‘You’re working too, so go and change we have people to great’ said crow all happy
‘You could have told me before I changed’ said Taraki annoyed that he just got dress.
‘Well you did rush right in to get dress and I didn’t know we would get the job and also that there were uniforms’ explain Ricky.
‘Come on Taraki it fun it like dress up your favorite game’ said crow happy as he sat on the desk. Taraki growled and went to get crow but Ricky jump into the middle and Ricky said ‘if anything brake it come out of the pay check which mean less food and a horrible room and no money’ the two stop straight right away and Taraki grab his uniform and went back to change and Ricky hit crow on the head and said ‘because he was force to wear girl clothes doesn’t mean he like to dress up remember he is a guy who just happen to look like a girl and curse with the tail’
‘But he was so mad when I sold his girl clothes so I though he must of love it’ explain crow rubbing his head.
‘He was mad you sold it without telling him, that stealing a crime which could get you into a lot of trouble’ said Ricky and he went back to working and crow though about it and still didn’t understand why he was mad.
Taraki came out in his black and white suit, he look like a perfect door man as he open the door and took their coats and greeted them, while crow and Ricky clean the place. It was hard work but the three enjoy it and learn many stories about the world and where they should go. Getting tips and eating all they could which for Crow was never ending.
As the sun shined and they woke form there slumber and did work for a while till they felt they paid of the food crow had taken. As they left they felt happier and like they became closer and that they learn a lot. They were ready for the next place but Ricky knew that would end as they are not humans and also that he is a well known kid at the government and could one day walk into his parent hands
Why can we be together?
It been three days and the three have now got jobs and know how to run the group, Ricky and Taraki took turn in watching crow and in leadership. As they traveling and hunting for food became no problem since Taraki hunted for fish in the water and Ricky ask the animals to were the food was, while crow kept an eye out for other traveler or soldiers.
They love living on their own and had a great system they both agree to never give crow any important jobs since he get distracted to easy. As Ricky left to find the nearby town Taraki and crow wonder around looking for food or water, while traveling Taraki ran into some police who were looking for anima and geniuses as Taraki and crow stood there as the police walk over and one asked ‘hay kids where your parent?’
‘Not here, we are traveling is that a crime, our parent say we can’ explain Taraki acting clam and kept crow form running off and keep his mark hidden.
‘Really do you have the papers?’ ask the other one and Taraki look at him confused and ask ‘what papers?’
‘for kids under 16 traveling alone without parents need paper to prove they are alone and not running away from home because they are another type’ he explain.
‘oh well we didn’t know that or our parents, if you give us the paper and we get the sign were not that far from home, we just left’ explain Taraki.
‘ok but here some warning kids there are anima out there that will kill you and don’t trust g types ether they are smart and will do anything to get there way, what a minute that mark it look familiar’ said on the cops as he seen crow mark on his shoulder and Taraki push crow away and said ‘that a tattoo if a wing, have you never seen a tattoo before seriously so the papers’. They handed it over and told him to hand it to the near station and they will get the paper they need to travel. As they left Taraki said ‘stupid cops, really I wonder how they past there exam’
‘they are idiots for sure, what kind of kids travel without adult and anime killers and g types smart, just became they are called genius doesn’t make them smart, like Ricky he not smart he doesn’t even know what algebra is I’m always giving him the answers’ said crow laughing as he walk off. As Taraki filled out the papers he thought about what the cops said, are they killers and will genius do what they want, both different can they really get along, he doesn’t know anything about them and yet he traveling with them. He had thousand of questions also what did Ricky do on these missions.
‘hay Tara how the form going?’ ask crow as he jump on Taraki and Taraki knock him off and said ‘my name is Taraki, Tara a girl name and it fine you just need to sign here’ he said and gave crow the paper and pen and crow look at it and said ‘you sign it’
‘I have, we need the child to as well so sign it, it not hard just write your name’
‘no I rather get Ricky to sign it for me’ said crow and he throw the pen back at Taraki, Taraki got up and shouted ‘just sign it, it has to be your signature not Ricky or mine, just sign the papers’ said Taraki.
‘no way, I’m not signing anything’ said crow and he cross his hand sand Taraki stress level rose and he started shouting at crow and trying to get him to sign it. Crow just argue back and refused and the shouting grew so loud Ricky hear them and rush back and as he arrive he seen them and was about to jump in to stop them but he arrive to late crow ender the argument with a kiss. Crow gave Taraki a kiss on his lips, Taraki jump back in shock and crow look at him and smiled and seen Ricky smiled and walk off happy and Taraki was in shock and couldn’t move or stop thinking about it and Ricky walk over and slap him on the face and said ‘come on Taraki, no need to be like that it was only a kiss’
‘It wasn’t just a kiss, that boy kiss me why in the hell did he do that? What does this mean? Is he gay?’ shouted Taraki made and confused he didn’t know what to do.
‘it not his fault and has no meaning, crow isn’t gay or like you like that he did it to shut you up’ explain Ricky as he bend down and sat down and got comfy and Taraki sat down and try think about why he did it.
‘let me explain months ago crow and my brother Kyle were watching a movie, when this guy kiss this girl, see the two were fighting and as you just witness a kiss, since crow didn’t know what a kiss meant and Kyle didn’t know that told him he did it to shut her up, so crow though to get someone to be quite is by kissing them, we tried to explain to him what it really means but as you see he hasn’t grasp it yet, I should have told you before’ he explain and as Taraki tough about and get it in his mind he shouted out ‘what wrong with your family, teaching him that, I’m beginning to wonder what you guys have been teaching him, first stealing, his carefree attitude and unwilling to sign anything and now this, did he get away with everything?’
‘Not all the time, any way what were you trying to get him to sign and why?’ ask Ricky trying to change the subject about their rising of crow.
‘These cops came and said we can’t travel around alone without a 16 and up person, so we have to sign these but he wouldn’t’ Taraki explain and pass the papers.
‘I know about these, but didn’t get them, not because I didn’t want to it just crow can’t write’ said Ricky looking at the paper.
‘What? He can’t write what wrong with your family?’ asked Taraki shock
‘it not that we didn’t tried it just crow attention spend is short he can only write a and the, but he can draw that why I did all writing and crow told me the answers, I’m not very smart even though am an genius’ he explain.
‘I understand that but, still a whole year and only these two he can write, why he can’t write his name?’ ask Taraki.
‘Well with missions and school work and training teaching one to write never could fit in’ he said.
‘I see so what are these mission? What do you guys do I know that some G types go on mission and have another way in life, how did they get to be accept by the human?’ Ask Taraki
‘that easy, we go on dangerous mission for the government and in return we get a house, medical care and live along with humans, it a fair deal, well that what we think us G types any way but human and A types think different. Our mission are dangerous and you can die and we have to do whatever we can to get the mission done even if we have to give up our life, human think of use as slave and paretic since we give up our lives to get what we want, some go on mission for money, land or even clothes, but my dad said it like scratching their back and they scratch ours’ he explain and Taraki said annoyed ‘so your puppet, servant while anima are animal who are savages and kill for food, different yet the same’
‘not different same, human, A and G types are all the same, each are living and breathing thing, they just can see it, hay there a town east of here and if we go now we can make it before night fall’ said crow as he jump in from the sky.
‘Crow your back, what did you hear?’ ask Ricky surprise and worried.
‘Hmm nothing but the different and same part, was there something I’m meant to hear?’ said crow.
‘nope come let get going’ said Ricky as he grab the stuff and rush off and crow look at him confused and Taraki got the hint that crow doesn’t know what they do on mission or how they live their lives.
They soon reach a town where trouble was found as Ricky seen his loving father running the town after getting it back under control. This was a huge problem since they were looking for anima and crow show his mark in pride and they checking everyone for the marks. The three head in hiding behind people and buildings, as they made a good distance they cover crow mark with the black clock. They kept hidden form the guards and as they move they snuck by the soldiers and as they enter a hotel they got a small room for them and hid there and as Taraki asks ‘what are we going to do?’
‘we have to leave if our dad see us, were going home and if he also find out crow and you are anima your life is over, you might be fine but crow wont and my dad will kill me, I wonder where he think we are’ explain Ricky looking out the window.
‘I know we can sneak out at night, I’m sure the guards will be lower and it easier, I could fly out and you two sneak’ said crow sitting on the bed taking of the clock.
‘night isn’t a good time ether, solider expect that, in morning sure people can be found but not much guard are out, night they will have one around every corner if they know anima are around’ said Taraki thinking about what could happen.
‘dad won’t go easy, I can’t say I’m on a mission since I have no idea what my brother said, maybe I should find out’ explain Ricky and he called Joe and asks about what they said and as Joe first shouted because of his worry he then told him, because they left sudden and had no idea what to say Kayla said they were kidnapped and their father assumed it was anima and now looking for them. Ricky though about it, if they head out they would think Taraki kidnapped them and also find out crow an anima and then think crow snuck into the family just to get Ricky since he can understand and control animals and anima included. So whatever plan they thought of ended in with them being court.
‘I know, I could wear this hood, fly out and make everyone think I’m the angel of death and you guys get out, then as you get away I will fly away, they can’t get me in the sky’ explain crow thinking of random plans.
‘idiot, you will get court, or killed the town people would be scared but I’m sure the soldiers won’t be since death come with the job’ said Taraki as he hit him on the head and sat next to him and Ricky knew what he had to do and it will be risky and dangerous and there a huge chance not all will make it out, but every other plan, they all will be court. Ricky looks at his brother and his hard working father and knew what he had to do, to protect his brother he will do anything.
As it reach night the three left taking everything they can carry and headed out, listing and keeping quite but like what Taraki said solider were everywhere and they were found in only a few minutes. They ran and ran and didn’t stop but as they reach a dead end and his father came out and shouted out stop. Gun pointed at them and a beeping sound went off form one of their tools that tell them if they are an anima or not. With nowhere to run Ricky whistle and a flock of owls came and started attacking and the three ran off and as Taraki and crow bolted Ricky was court as he save crow from being court by a soldier. Ricky knew he was going to be court and so did Taraki, but both knew the plan and risk and that one of them will be court and Ricky knew it had to be him, with his weak body and also with them as anima he had to be the one least he knew crow would be safe with Taraki by his side. Least with this he can stop his father from searching for crow and stop him from harming the anima. As Ricky was taken to his dad crow stop and got his wings out and was about to fly after him and Taraki grab him and pull him back but had a hard time and Taraki shouted out ‘stop if you go back, you will be court and Ricky scarifies would be for nothing’
‘I don’t care he my brother I can’t let him go back alone’ shouted crow and soon the flock of owls came and push the two back and forcing them to run away and didn’t stop till they were far away then an owl started to talk to crow. The two stay there as crow was unable to move he just sat there in silence and Taraki couldn’t do anything or say anything to make him feel any better.
Back in the town Ricky was taken to a room where his father was, as the solider left his father rush over and gave him a huge hug and started to cry as he was so happy he was alive.
‘Ricky, I look everywhere for you how did you get away? Are you ok? Where crow?’ he asked quick and with a huge smile on his face.
‘I use some bird to get away then as I ran these guys chase me, crow was sent somewhere, anima didn’t take us, some guys were planning on selling us because of what we are, anima aren’t the only once being sold dad or the only types to kidnap’ he explain, he was mad that he assume anima did it.
‘What? but human and G types are at peace, you’re lying you got to stop defending them, they are just wild creature that should all be killed, don’t worry I will find crow and bring him home after I take you back home safe and sound’ he said happy but mad about what he said. His father hated anima for no reason, none ever hurt him, and he just hates them and never will change.
‘don’t bother, crow got away save him and as he ran off, you will never find him he probably gone home, his real home just leave him alone, also anima were human they never ask to be an anima, they became them by human and there ways unlike us who are born an G type’ said Ricky annoyed and he storm off. His dad was mad and furious and knew he was hiding something, he assume the worst and believe crow could ether be dead or court by an anima and he doesn’t want him to know. Everything was always blame on the anima, never human while sometimes Genius. It the way the world work now, anima can never be friend with anyone other than their own kind.
Far from the town crow and Taraki still there looking back at the town as Taraki look and seen crown about to fly back to town Taraki grab his arm and crow shouted ‘we have to go back, he going to be taken back’
‘Crow, if you go back you will be court and taken away, you’re an anima, your brother a genies, he going to be taken home and return to his old life while you would be taken to prison where all anima go, he did this to keep you save heading back will just make thing worst’ Taraki explain pulling him down to the group as he try to fly away.
Crow put his wings away and ask while he was crying ‘why? Why do anima get treated like trash why does my brother have to go back to a life where he force to use his gift which slowly killing him? Why can we all be together and live in peace? Why?’
‘because we are different and like human we are scared, human are scared and so are we so we fight one day you will see your brother again and when it happens he will never leave your side, till then I will take his job and keep you safe’ explain Taraki and crow ran and jump into his arm and knock him over and as he hug him crow said ‘if you’re going to be him you can’t fall over Tara’
‘That not what I meant’ growled Taraki.
As crow put his wings away and said ‘we should get going they will look for the kidnappers, so let continue our mission to find anime’ crow then smiled and Taraki did a little grin. He was thankful for what Ricky did, he did something many wouldn’t do give up their own freedom to save some anima; he was different from most G types. As the two headed of carrying all they could they hope they would find other like him. Who accept and think of anima and genius are the same as humans.
As time pasts the found them self looking for food and water but with no lake or any life around they found them self lost in the desert in the hot tired and with no energy. No path or sign they were lost and they soon had to rely on their hidden gift, there anima souls. Crow called his and flew into the air and let his wings take him while Taraki use his to find water. Taraki found a huge lake full of fish, as Taraki walk to the lake crow return with berries he found by follow the birds. As they ate and went for a swim, as Taraki jump in his legs turn to a fish tail that was shiny and scaly and a dorsal fin grew on his back, he grew gills on his neck and he swim under water with his eyes open, he was a true fish boy. Crow sitting on the edge with his feet in splashing away he was happy watching while singing, singing whatever he see and what he feeling. Taraki came back with fish and ask ‘aren’t you coming in? It will make you feel better’
‘Nope, I want to watch the birds, aren’t they pretty, I love being around them are you like that with fish?’ he said happy.
‘No, I just like eating fish, I don’t want to swim with them, I maybe have fish part but I’m not a fish lover’ he explain.
‘I love bird, mostly crows, when I see them, all I want to do is fly with them, I have no idea why just crows other birds I watch but I love the crows’ he said happy and Taraki look at him confused about how much birds effect him. You wonder if all anima are like that, he was confused why he was different.
‘So what fish are you? I hear that when you turn into an anima your anima appear in your head and you know what you are before turning, also that not everyone love the animal they are’ he asked with a smile.
‘I think I’m an electric blue cichlid, I have no idea if they have shocking abilities or not’ he explain thinking about it.
‘I never seen one, but I see you have stripes on your tail and a fin, do you think we will see the ocean one day?’ said crow.
‘Yeah we will, also farms, cities maybe desert, we will see everything since if where going to find anima we have to go everywhere all over the world’ he said getting out the water making sure the fish stay on the land.
‘Where going to see the whole world, yeah that a promise and a deal, we should eat up and started the world huge, I might take us years’ said crow all happy and jumping around. Taraki fell a bit of joy and never felt like this, he knew that making a deal like that wasn’t a good idea, since they was no way they will travel around the whole world, expectably since they are kids and anima, but he felt like it was his reasonably to watch him, since Ricky gone. He was now the elder brother of the free spirited bird boy, even if he didn’t want to be.
Weeks have past and they already had enough trouble, none of them had no idea how to defend them self, cook or can even get to buy or stay places because of their age and they are struggling to make it though the day. Most of their money goes on food because crow has 4 stomached, that what it seems and they rarely have money to buy new clothes and equipment, hotel was hard to get since they ether cost a lot or won’t let kids stay alone. They sometime get nice people, who give them a play to stay and food, but they were running low on money and they can’t handle eating raw or burnt fish for long. It seem Taraki had enough of traveling and wanted to go home and crow who didn’t see his frustrated would smile and cause more trouble, all on his mind was finding anima. No matter what the cost. As they were in the midd
