Chapter- 17- The Moriantes Boy Versus Jake Uzena

 

“I suppose that every one of us hopes secretly for immortality; to leave, I mean, a name behind him which will live forever in this world, whatever he may be doing, himself, in the next.”

A.A. Milne

 

 

 

Cameron pulled the sweater off

“Not my style” he said eying the reindeer design all over it

“Figured that” Jason said

He had already gave Cameron a room, and now he brought him to a clothing closet

“How many sweaters do you need?” Jason asked

Cameron looked at the pile of stuff he`d already claimed

Deodorant, shampoo, body wash and, other assorted clothing

“I guess that’s enough,” he confessed

“Finally” Jason grumbled, “let’s get this stuff to your room”

Cameron was glad he did not have to carry his sword around

He left it in his room

However, for some reason he felt like he should keep a better eye on it

He shrugged the feeling off

The two boys split the load of Cameron`s new stuff and then carried it down the hall

The bathroom was right across from Cameron`s room, everyone in the west hallway used it

When they got to Cameron’s ajar door the bathroom door opened

Carissa walked out of the bathroom in a towel her eyes were closed

“Hey” Cameron said

She walked down the hall then opened her room door and walked in

“She was meditating” Jason said

“But she was walking” Cameron said confused

Jason pushed Cameron’s door open then walked inside, Cameron followed

“you’ll get used to it eventually” Jason said tossing the pile of clothes on Cameron`s bed “this one time she came out nude” he chuckled “good thing Megan stopped her though”

“Uh okay” Cameron said tossing his pile of clothes on the bed he wondered how many times that happened

“Okay” Jason said heading out of the room “there’s a lot to do here on the island of Flora institution-”

Cameron cut him off “were on an island?” he asked

“Yeah” Jason said matter-of-factly “surrounded by all kinds of shields where the Shinzen can`t detect us

“Oh ok” Cameron said

“Now there`s a lot to do around here” Jason repeated “get a job, play some sports,  go sign up for classes I dunno just don’t become an Erik”

“Who’s Erik?” Cameron asked

“Nobody” Jason said, “Forget I mentioned him” then he walked out of the room

Cameron wondered who his roommates were while he put his clothes in the drawer his bed was the closest to the door there was one farther down along the wall and one by the window on the other side of the room

When he finished he sat on his bed and picked up his sword it wasn’t very heavy

He drew it from its sheath and examined the blade there was a strip of glass in the center of the blade all the way to the tip

He put the blade back in its sheath

“I need a smoke,” he muttered

Then the door opened and Jake walked in

He was not wearing a shirt just his jeans

“You’re my roommate?” Cameron asked setting the sword on his bed

“Get out of my room” Jake demanded

“This is my room too now,” Cameron said

Jake tossed his shirt against the wall “no Zaura to protect you now” he growled

Cameron stood up “alright, let’s go then, if you hit me hard enough I might stick a few bucks in your pants

“What?-” Jake asked but he was cut off when Cameron tackled him

They landed in the hallway Cameron started pummeling Jakes face

Jake managed to shove him off and was on his feet so fast it was unnatural

Cameron rolled onto his hands and knees just in time to get kicked in the ribs. He fell onto his stomach and Jake kept kicking

Cameron rolled and grabbed Jakes foot mid-swing he pulled him off his feet

“Hey, their fighting!” someone yelled from the living room as Cameron got to his feet

Jake did a kick up onto his feet then scowled and popped his neck

“I don’t like you” then he rushed at Cameron then he jumped and somersaulted forward

Cameron could’ve sworn Jake was flying but he wasn’t he was falling at Cameron feet first

Both feet caught Cameron in the face

He fell backwards hitting the floor hard

A few people stood above Cameron

Is he dead?” a boy asked

“No!” a girls voice said, “He’s looking at us right now!”

Cameron got to his feet practically seeing stars

“What the hell was that?” Cameron demanded “acrobatics?”

“Shut the hell up” Jake growled “your just scared cuz you can’t keep up”

“You need to fly to fight me?” Cameron mocked “pretty lame power if you ask me”

“I'm not using my power” Jake said, “It’s just acrobatics”

“You’re an acrobat?” Cameron asked then burst out laughing,
“Someone get Jason before Jake kills the new guy!” a boy said

“Come at me bro” Cameron said

Jake charged but he did not ‘fly’ this time

Cameron sidestepped Jake`s swing then bashed him in the gut

Jake staggered back and Cameron did not miss a beat he rushed forward grabbing Jake by the shoulder, then he pulled him to him and clocked him in the face

Jake staggered backwards again. He balanced himself against a closed door almost doubling over

“Yeah!” somebody yelled, “kick his ass new guy!”

More kids cheered Cameron on

“You’re dead,” Jake growled

“Come on then” Cameron laughed

Jake stood up straight holding his left arm out to his side

-What now? - Cameron thought

Jake closed his eyes, –is he going to meditate too? - Cameron thought

Everything went silent except a low continuous hum

Jake`s outstretched arm jerked forward and the wall to his left split open

-His arm cut the wall.-

(Quick fact- Jake`s ability is his arms emit a supersonic hum that solidifies as an invisible blade-like layer around his arm, only his arms can do this)

-this is it! Jakes power, he slashed the wall with his bare arm! - Cameron`s left hand grew warm as Jake rushed at him

-I will kill him- the thought came out of nowhere Cameron did not want to kill Jake, did he?

“Stop, both of you!”

Cameron and Jake were both thrown down opposite ends of the hallway

Cameron landed on his back right in front of the gathering people he groaned and sat up; Jake did the same down the hall on the other side of Michael

“Get ready to leave” Michael demanded

“Leave?” Cameron asked “dude we were just fighting, and I just got here!”

‘I mean we have an assignment,” Michael said clearly annoyed

Radish`s redhead popped through the crowd with Jason following behind him

“Get busy people!” Jason said “nothing to see here, get on with your lives”

Cameron stood up as the crowd dispersed

“You mean part of the war?” Cameron asked

Jake walked over

“What else would we get an assignment on?” Michael asked “now get ready, were leaving at sunset”

Cameron glared at Jake

“Did you really have to remodel the wall?” Jason pointed at the cut along the wall

“where`s Carissa?” Michael asked completely unconcerned

Jake walked back to his/Cameron`s room
“gotta love my roommate” Cameron muttered then followed Jake.
