chapter one

 

It was hot and humid; a light breeze arriving from the north. The calm made the day monotonous, yet the monotony made the surrounding area rather peaceful as if there was nothing that could tatter it, not in the slightest way. ‘’Brenna!’’ a shriek from Christian interrupted the peace in irony ‘’Help.” “I’m coming’’ Brenna cried with a shriek just as mighty while climbing aboard her v-28 Land Speeder. As she neared the cries of agony, she noticed something that would make a thirty-eight-year-old marine run away crying, that something was an 6-foot-tall beast with teeth that dripped with so much drool you could fill a single person pool in a matter of seconds. Brenna couldn’t do much to stop the beast, so she did the one thing she could do, but before she could reach for her class nine blaster pistol, Brenna heard an unknown voice yell. She turned around and once she did, she saw a boy around her age running toward the beast. ‘’Don’t hurt him!’’ he pleaded ‘’he’s tame...’’ That’s when she noticed a collar around the beast’s neck with the name jimmy engraved into it. The boy’s name turned out to be James Ryan and his beastly friend was a gift from his now deceased friend James long who was killed in action during the cyber war1. James Ryan had gotten over it, but the memory of James long still haunts his dreams at night. After the group exchanged names they walked back to Brenna’s hut where they would all have a feast and talk about their lives.   ‘’where are you going?’’ Brenna asked, stopping James dead in his tracks. ‘’ we could use your help’’ she said. ‘’With what?’’ was James’s reply. ‘’you’ll find out when Sam gets back’’ Brenna answered. Jimmy growled ‘’ hey, language!’’ James said as he sat back down. Christian was worried that the beast would attack him while they talked but all thoughts were interrupted when a loud ‘’crash’’ was heard outside of the little hut the newly found ‘’friends’’ were conversating in and following that crash was a blinding wave of sand. ‘’Jimmy!’’ James called desperately, he was looking for his friend after the wave of sand had toppled the hut. James looked for Brenna, and Christian as well but with no luck whatsoever he sat down on a piece of the now destroyed hut, the thought of losing his friend played repeatedly in his head. His mind wandered off playing random endings of this scenario, but before he could think of what to do, he was knocked unconscious by an unknown source.  

3:48 pm  

James Long was relaxing on a beach in Quena Davae a well-known city on the planet of jarvin. He had no worries but one. His worry was that James Ryan would find out that he was still alive and living large without him. ‘’More tea?’’ asked a kind butler with a tray stacked high with tea cups and sugar cubes. ‘’No thanks.’’ was James’s response, for he was so sick and tired of tea because tea has been the only thing he has drank in months. James left the beach about an hour later because of a fight between two drunken men. James would have enjoyed watching the fight if it wasn’t for the fact that he was wanted by the biggest mob boss on the planet. His name was Dracune, and James owed over 500,000 sky tokens [very valuable coins worth $200,000 each] to this vile man [long story short he blew up almost every single building and vehicle dracune owned 4 years ago]. That night James was restless, he couldn’t stop thinking about what would happen if James knew about his existence… and what would happen if dracune found out he was alive as well.
