shouted. ‘Where did Fernie go? Why had he even brought him to this place?’ Orlando
A dark shadow began to form before
. The shadow bubbled, pushed out towards Orlando who carefully backed away not sure what it was. The shadow shot down towards the ground formed a dark pool and slowly rose to form Fernie. Orlando
“We can talk here. There is no one around for miles,” Fernie said.
“Why did you bring me here?”
wanted nothing to do with Fernie. The more time he spent with him the more he thought the guy was some psycho. Orlando
“There were too many interruptions at your house, unless you wanted me to kill your mother?” Fernie questioned with a chuckle in his voice. “I wanted you to see who Maxwell really was. I wanted you to see him in action.”
With a spin on his heel Fernie turned around giving his back to
. Fernie seemed to be looking at something in the distance. Orlando
Orlalndo only saw hills, there was nothing.
“He’s up there.” Fernie said.
“There is nothing here. No one is here. Take me home.”
wasn’t even dressed. He was standing in his pajamas and he was barefoot. How was he going to make his way back home? He didn’t even know where he was. Orlando
Fernie turned back around with an irritated look on his face, “Didn’t you hear what I said? He’s up there!” Fenie strode over to where
stood. “Come see for yourself.” Orlando
“No?” A strange look formed on Fernies face as he stared at
. “No? He repeated. Orlando
“Look, I’m not sure what is wrong with you. Maybe you got into someone’s stash of magik fix. But you need help.”
“What I needs is for you to believe me.”
“Why do you care if I believe you or not? What’s it to you?”
“Take a look,” Fernie raised his hand to
’s face. A yellow light emerged from his finger tips. Orlando
“What are you doing?”
asked as a strange sensation overtook him. Orlando
He heard Fernie laughing behind him. He had not bothered to follow.
He heard voices as he approached the light. It was a camp ground. A blue fire burned in a pit, in the center of the blue fire was a yellow light that dimmed as
approached. He ducked down behind the bushes. Orlando
Maxwell stood at the far end of the camp. A tent near him,
watched as Maxwell entered the tent. He was talking to someone but Orlando could not see who. The light from the fire pit revealed shadows of the ones who were inside the tent. There were two others in the tent with Maxwell. Orlando
“Hold him down!” Someone shouted in English.
“Get the collar on him before his change is complete!”
“Put him on the streets tonight.” Maxwell said calmly as the collar activated.
“He’s not for the fights?” The man asked. He looked disappointed.
“Do as I tell you!”
“We have to clear out of here!” He shouted.
“Why?” The man asked as he was moving the Zombie out of camp.
“There is a yellow light in the flames. He’s watching us.”
“Who is watching us?” He was confused.
Turning towards the man Maxwell shouted at him, “Don’t worry about it just clear out of here now!”
Moving towards the fire pit he tried to put the fire out, it would not go out. Maxwell began to shout around the camp. “There is nothing you can do Fernando! No one will help you. You are just a dying Wizard. How many days do you have left now?” Laughing Maxwell fled the camp.
“They are gone now.” Fernie appeared near
. “Do you believe me now? Do you finally see?” Orlando
“Good, because we do not have much time.”
“He said you were dying?”
“We are all dying.”
“What is wrong with you?”
“He injected me with Zombie blood.”
That was not what
had expected to hear, “Is there no cure?” Orlando
“My cure will be his death.”
