Quote Of The Chapter:
"A Man Who Won't Die For Something Is A Man Not Fit To Live."
As a child distant car rides were always so peaceful and fun to Arielle, especially during the night. The skies would be pitch black darkness throughout the entire town, one could easily get lost if it weren’t for town lights seen from afar guiding the way back for its citizens driving in the night.
Arielle’s eyes had followed each light before getting cut off the next; they left patterns of bright colours in her head that prevented her to go to sleep early. Well, for a six year old eight o’clock is pretty late.
By now, as she could see from the Honda Accord’s radio highlighted with green neon lights, the time was only six o’clock but with it being winter the sun set quicker here in the small town of Richmond Hills making the sky already pitch black.
Arielle, her parents, and her older brother Cassidy―whom, this week had the newest nickname Cass. He had for some reason changed his name every week claimed that when he was old enough he wouldn’t hesitate for a moment before change his name to something more manly; according to him the name Cassidy was a girl’s name―decided on going on a family dinner to a tiny but comfortable Chinese restaurant located right at the edge of town to celebrate Cassidy’s first A+ project.
Looking back Arielle realized what a stupid cause it was to celebrate and maybe it was just a way for their parents to finally relax about not having a dumb son. Particularly, six year old Arielle couldn’t have cared less about that. She had been content enough with the thought of a long night care drive home and a Chinese dinner.
Richmond Hills sat in between two of the world’s most immense mountains in the Rockies and because of that whenever rain threatened to pour upon the town most of the well-built men would stampede outside, yell at one another and then attempt at creating safety barricades.
Back in the olden days it had been near impossible for anyone to get into or out of the town and everyone was trapped. Yet they actually managed to stabilize they’re population and finally a few centuries after Arielle and Cassidy’s parents were born the small town met the other side of humanity.
And by saying that they showed them everything they had been living without; internet, television, cell phones, all of these things ended up being carried over into the town in giant helicopters with special equipment and oxygen tanks to survive and get passed the towns mountains.
Cassidy sat next to Arielle humming some random melody he had just randomly came up with as she peaceful rested her head between his shoulders dead tired and half asleep. Their mom glanced over for a second at their dad and exchanged smiles.
A normal night drive was how it started until all of a sudden a screeching sound similar to a piece of glass being shattered into a million pieces but as loud as gunfire and complete bright whiteness filled the sky. In an instant the whole world seemed to stop as Arielle was now wide awake, her dark brown eyes widened in shock and terror, as the sky turned from black to white.
Their dad winced blinded from the lightness surrounding them as the car stopped completely moving and just sat there on the road.
“Kids, are you alright?” Their mom screams from the front of the car.
The voice was heard mumbled to Arielle, like she had just gone swimming and one ear was plugged; there had been another silent sound blocking their mothers. And the more she tried to focus in on what her mom was saying the silence turned into an annoying static background noise.
Arielle also still couldn’t see anything. The strange bright whiteness which had appeared out of nowhere had taken her sight away and now she couldn’t even see her other family members; all she could see was whiteness everywhere.
“What’s going on dad?” Cassidy asked sounding frightened and confused.
Their father waited a few seconds before answering, but when he did Arielle could only heard certain parts of it due to her blurred hearing.
“I don’t know―Going to look―Honey...―Call the―Arielle?”
Her name came out crystal clear to her unlike the rest which was just getting fuzzier each second passing.
She tried to respond, “I-I’m right here daddy!” She yelled which some reason didn’t even then seem loud enough because she received the same question; this time only more concerned than the last.
“Arielle?” Their father muttered swiftly.
Her hearing was returning but that didn’t make her any less scared or confused at the situation.
All she wanted now was to go back home and curl up into her and Cassidy’s bunk bed and sleep this horrible event away like it never happened. Oh, how she wished it was that easy.
The ringing got louder with every second passing and Arielle couldn’t hear her own thoughts but she felt her tiny Chinese filled stomach sink into her seat.
Suddenly a new sound was heard. And unlike the building intensity of the ringing it was instant and ear drum bursting. It had been a cross between a huge explosion and the sound of fireworks screeching up towards the sky and once hitting its peck bursting into an eruption.
Everyone in the car screamed and for a rapid moment Arielle’s vision had been restored just to see a flaming flying object propelling right in front of them.
The immense growing light of the fire shadowed the disaster scene making it look like one of those perfect backgrounds for a horror movie of some kind. Only this was real. But reality is supposed to be logical and clearly, nothing like this is logical.
A dark figure exited the flying object that had crashed into the Honda Accord; He wore an all white rubbery suit that covered every aspect of his body. He had matching rubbery gloves and boots. Perhaps the strangest thing about it was the helmet it was wearing.
It resembled the clearness and colour of freshly polished glass which would normally seem dangerous to wear as a helmet but what had been more shocking was that it had not been damaged at all with the collision. It still looked brand new.
The figure paced alongside the Honda Accord mumbling words unearthly that one couldn’t even begin to decipher.
Looking at it more closely now however, it was obvious that the figure was not an ‘it’ but a ‘him’, despite the fact of him appearing out of a weird looking flying saucer he looked honestly normal as though it wouldn’t be odd seeing him walking down the street.; A normal human boy.
He then touched the top of his helmet and took it off. Hesitating, next he took a deep breath inhaling the smoky air surrounding him.
His hair was an average dirty blonde―Another average human quality―But then you noticed his eyes, a deep dark shade of violet.
“Shit.” He swore loudly but despite it being vulgar language it sounded so magically and hypnotizing coming from him.
He stood in front of the car. The aircraft of his had landed right in between the windshield, crashing into it and slamming their fathers face into it and one of its wings had fallen and cut open their mothers throat and by now, even with it only being a few minutes after, she had already bleed to death.
It was a cruel and gruesome scene, created by one irresponsible man ―No, thing.
However there sat in the back was tiny six year old Arielle, who, in fact had been so tiny and fragile when her moms back seat had crashed into her she was so petite she managed to somehow not be squished.
Because of this Arielle was still alive, just knocked unconscious.
Cassidy on the other hand, hadn’t been as small as Arielle so in a way, not as lucky. Somehow he was still barely breathing but had fallen out of the window during collision. His seatbelt snapped his back into his seat only to be flung out of it, through the window, during collision.
He rested on the road side also unconscious but with some broken ribs and other injuries.
The mysterious man knew what he had to do. In a way, he had felt mildly responsible for the accident. And although it may seem as an act of compassion, it was only to avoid unnecessary death. He hadn’t arrived on Earth to do that.
With a single blink and a raise of his right hand, the door on Arielle’s side flew open all by itself, their moms backseat had been pushed forward causing more brutal deformation to her body but it didn’t matter now because Arielle was still living and breathing.
He walked over to her through the fire around the car and scooped her up into his arms.
Only just as he was going to put her safely down away from hazards and next to her brother, he felt her tiny heart stop beating.
He stood still and shocked. This tiny, fragile, beautiful, so full of life, so full of potential little girl had just died in his arms.
He grunted as he lightly placed her on the ground and lay next to her.
Was mankind truly this weak? He wondered as he stared at her for a good minute.
He had made his decision and even if his kind would hate him for it or even if he would hate himself later for it.
Those gorgeous violet eyes of his had turned into what looked like computer clip backgrounds as he coughed a few times, chocked, and then out of his mouth popped a pink metallic chip.
“This might hurt a little...” He said realizing he was technically talking to himself considering she was still knocked out cold.
Her cut open her wrists and ripped out one of her main blood vessels than took the other vain and inserted the chip inside.
Once everything was all stitched up and fixed in her he moved on and repeated the same to Cassidy then he disappeared quickly within the night as the sirens of ambulances and fire trucks arrived.
