John stepped onto the bus like everyday. His backpack over his right shoulder. He saw Chris standing up in the back “take all the seats before john gets here.” ken looked up at him “why johns cool” chris got a bit angry “he‘s a freak!” john heard him say. When chris turned around John was right in front of him .
“What’s that chris? You think I’m freak?” john asked.
Chris jumped back “no no not you” he told john. John reached in his pocket and pulled out a razor blade. He cut Chris’s hand. 2 other kids stood up grabbing john. And restrained him. Chris began to punch john, who couldn’t do anything about it. Then Joey stood up and punched one kid who was holding john. John then broke free from the other and took a seat in the back like it didn’t happen. Joey sat down next to him.
The rest of the ride john was very quite. Then just before he got off John looked at Joey. “Thanks.”
Joey smiled “Don’t thank me, its what I do, I help people.” john got up and walked off the bus, then ran towards his house. The rest of the day was pretty boring for john. He ate a normal dinner and listened to music like always.
The next day at school John was headed for class when Joey cut him off. “hey, some time we should hang out.” Joey told him.
“Yea, we should. I guess…”
At lunch john sat at joeys table but was quiet and didn’t eat. He felt a bit odd though like something bad was gonna happen.
Joey sat next to John on the bus again today. suddenly Jake punched Joey, “your gonna get it after school today.”
John fell asleep before his stop, no one tried to wake him up. He woke up anyway though, the bus driver was yelling at some kid for something. John realized he’d past his stop. He decided to just get off at Joey’s
The bus pulled over Joey John Jake and Chris got off the bus. “Why you getting off now” Joey asked
“You wanted to hang out right.” Jake and Chris left without laying a hand on Joey.
John stayed at Joeys house for dinner, they were having tacos. “So John is it true what people have bean saying….about you being…”
John cut him off “yea….emo…it is.”
After dinner John followed Joey to the attic, “I wanna show you something…”
John looked at the paint on the ground…”I know that writing…my grandpa spoke that language….it says…doble yete utaz mon barish…..” suddenly the paint began to glow “or in English it says prepare to enter your eternal he--”
Everything in the room began to get sucked in. john and Joey included.
John looked around in confusion. “Where are we?” he said in disbelief.
“I don’t know” joey said.
“lets leave.” john suggested
“How” joey said a bit annoyed.
“good question” john replied. He looked around. “there. That coliseum in the distance…” john said already walking that way
“how do you know.” joey asked him.
“Just a shot in the dark” john said with a small smirk
John and joey began to walk down the steep icy mountain they appeared on.. “this isn’t good john!” joey yelled out. When john looked over joey was sliding down the ice fast, cutting up his face and chest as he slid.
“what to do?” john said. Then he looked over. “a river? Bad idea…” he grabbed a big rock and jumped into the almost frozen stream. He used the rock as surf board. He could see when he and joey would collide. Right after the river curves.
John bent his knees. Joey slid by a bit early, john missed his body! “DAM!” john kept trying and finally grabbed his hand, but was pulled off his rock. He slid down the river holding joey on his stomach. John was writhing in pain, joey wanted to help but john didn’t let him move.
After what felt like hours the got to the bottom of the mountain and the shallow stream flowed into a lake. Joey pulled john up onto his back and swam to shore. “You ok John” he asked
“yea fine…” he said as blood dripped down his back…”we made it down now we just gotta go a bit farther.”
The began walking. this better be a good place to go joey thought looking at john, who was clearly in pain.
“just gotta pass through this small village then we‘ll be there…chill out…for now…” John said quietly…”try not to get noticed…”
john and joey made it threw the village. “just over this hill right” joey asked
“yea.” when they reached the top of the hill they stopped in amazement. They was a small river, weaning there was also a big gap in the path. John stared across, “but look other people are on that side.” john didn’t realize something though, they were all looking down. A boy was being attack by the shark.
John still not noticing the attack was confused “why are they so happy?” he turned to joey, who was running at the cliff. He jumped off, when he hit the water he swam at the shark. He grabbed the sharks tail. It turned away from the small boy, but as it went to bite joey, he punched it in the face and it swam away. Joey pulled the boy onto his back.
John then jumped down towards the water, he threw a rock just to his left to make a splash, the impact of the fall was slightly lessened.
“we gotta find shore” joey yelled out.
John swam over to the rocks “HELP US” he yelled out to the people staring down. But they just ignored him, and began to throw rocks at joey and the boy. John swam over to them, and saw where joey was headed, a ladder was put up, as if to say, if you can really live after swimming in this strong current and being attacked by sharks, good job.
Joey began to climb with the small boy on his shoulders. Finally he got to the top “whoa that coliseum is even bigger up close.” john said.
“yea!” joeys agreed
John and joey began to examine the small boy, he looked pretty normal, but joey noticed something, he had small horns, coming out of his hair, but were barely visible. John also noticed something weird. The boy had 3 of johns razorblades in his pocket. “He’s a klepto!” john said laughing just a little under his breathe.
