The Revenge

John was taken to the military base. “Remove his head cover.” The Military solider said. “Where am I?” John asked. “So Solider John Martin It has been a long time since I last saw you.” The Captain said. “I heard that you are looking for your son don’t worry he is with us solider man or I should say murder man, that you have killed many citizens like your wife, Donny and Jessie.” The captain continues his talking. “Don’t you remember this Face?” “Look Me in the eye.” Captain said angrily. John recognized him that he was the army captain. John got a problems with that captain that the captain wanted John to kill the poor people because they wanted to make a revolution on the military. Because they used to take their children and kill them to make sure they won’t cause any problem to them. John was asked to kill those people but he refused. They punished him hard for refusing their request. And he ran away from the military base. From that day he became retired from being an army man. “Did you recognize me? I guess not. Ok men do what you should to do.” The captain said. They army men started to beat John hard and hard until the blood came out from his face. They were treating him badly. “Stop lock him in his old cellar and we will have another talk tomorrow!” The captain said. They took John into his cellar. It was dirty and cold. There was no bed. He used to sleep on the floor. They didn’t give him any food to eat or any water to drink until tomorrow. “Wake up Wake up Hey You Wake up” The army man said unkindly. John was tired and couldn’t wake up at all. So the army men took him from his neck and send him to the captain. “Well well there you are again. So I guess you are asking where is your son don’t you?” the captain said. “WHERE IS MY SON OR You Will Die!?” John Said Angrily. Although john was ill but he was still strong. “You I can kill you right now but I won’t do it now you know why cause your son will be the first that who will die in front of you.” They garbed a small child with a head cover on his head John thought that he was his son because they clothed him his son’s clothes. And the captain said to John. “You will do what I say or I will kill your son.” “I will do anything but don’t kill him please.” John said scarily. “Ok then You must kill the poor people that live in London at an old factory, I guess you have visited it before didn’t you?” John realized that he was talking about the old factory that was the old woman lives. “I refused to do that I won’t kill ANYMORE.” John Said and he wasn’t afraid of him. “In that case I will kill your son.” The captain said. john realized that the boy wasn’t his son because his son was having a problem in walking means that he can’t walk well he need a wheel chair and that boy seemed to be well doesn’t need a wheel chair. But In the other hand that boy belongs to a family and his family need him to come back so John had to think that he have to save his son by taking the risk and do what they say or he could save the people and let the boy die . He had to choose between them. And took the risk and let the boy die. John was sent to his cellar again. But that time he got a plan that how he could save his son and kill the captain then to run away to the yacht and get back to live USA again. While John was been sending to his cellar he took the army man’s key without knowing that he had his key. He sat in his cellar until it been totally dark and took the key and opened his cellar door. He was lucky that the army men were sleeping but not all of them he found a man coming near to him. He came out from his back and broke his neck and took his weapon and hided his body. Then he went to the captain room. He moved slowly that nobody heard him at all. He opened the room and found that the captain had died from a food toxic. He wasn’t surprised that he could die soon. He took the keys from his pocket and went to his son cellar. His son was hurt in his face and his leg was injured too. John took his son and went out from the military base without anyone knows that he went out from the base. That he knew the ways to went out from it. That he used to run away from it from the last time he was in that base. He took his son and realized that he wasn’t far from his yacht at all. “Oh my Son I missed you so much” John said lovely. “Dad I missed you too.” John’s son replied with low voice. John was Very ill and nearly to die but he knew that he must get out from this island and go anywhere else. They took the yacht and went to France. In the way to France John Felt that it ends here. He took his son in his hands a said. “How old are you now 7 or 8?” John asked Jell. “I am 7 years old now Dad.”  “I am sorry my son I know I did miss you but you must know something that I loved you very much and if your brother Jorge was here he would have happy to see you too. I want you to be strong and be away from the problems my son and I want you to be like me doesn’t afraid of anything. And I wanted to say that I loved you and you must to know that I am very ill and I will die. And I am sorry to let you been kidnapped and I am sorry to kill your mother and I wish she would be here to tell her that but you must to do what you want but the important thing you must be on the right way and don’t fall down and never give up anything you must be with the weak people and help them and keep them safe after you are safe.” I love you my son very mu……………………………” John Died. “NO No It can’t be It you can’t leave me please don’t leave me Dad I don’t know anyone here dad you was my Dad and my friend Please NO NO NO NO!”  John’s Son said while he was crying.
