Chapter 2- "With Everyone."
Has anyone watched 'Four Brothers' then to see 'The Happening' because Mark Wahlberg was in it or you thought it looked cool? Then compared the acting in both movies? I have. So I had an idea. Elliott Moore, teacher in 'The Happening', meet Bobby Mercer, oldest of the four brothers!!
Watch out- predicted slash and scenes of a sexual nature! If you don't like it, simply don't read it!
The train was packed. Families were everywhere, mothers wiping babies' noses, fathers with grim expressions. Businessmen clutched their briefcases with blank faces. Schoolchildren whispered to one another quietly. The other people, mainly men and women returning home from work, just stood there, fiddling with phones to call loved ones.
Elliot sat in the middle of this chaos, desperate to call his friends and family. Bobby sat opposite, his brow furrowed as he tried to get through to Detroit. The same message repeated: 'All lines are busy or unavailable. Please call later.'
"Dammit, Angel, pick up!" he swore, pushing the phone in his leather pocket.
"No luck still?" Elliot enquired.
"Obviously.' he paused. "So, Elliot, what is going on? Is it terrorists?"
"I don't believe so. Terrorists would have to make themselves known, else their task is pointless, and no-one would listen. They'd also leave evidence, regardless of how careful they were. No. I think this is not human-related."
Bobby laughed. "Okay, aliens?"
"No, again. I reckon it is nature. Think of how much damage we have done to the environment. Perhaps this is nature's way of defending itself."
Bobby shrugged. He had sought the man out so he knew what enemy he was facing- Elliot had a few contacts in government, plus he was smart- but this was no enemy he could shoot, nor hide from. His brothers needed him.
"Wish this fuckin' train would hurry up. Jackie will be crying if I'm not home soon, little fairy." he smiled.
"Who are your brothers, Bobby?" Elliot asked politely.
"Well, I'm the oldest. Then there's Jerry. Jeremiah, bit of a smart-ass. Then Angel. Pretty-boy, eyeing up all the girls. Finally, there's Jack, the youngest. Bit of a rock star. Evelyn Mercer adopted us all. All the Mercers."
Suddenly, the train slowed down to a halt and the lights flickered. Bobby climbed to his feet and Elliot followed.
"What the hell's goin' on?" Bobby yelled.
People around them were screaming and crying, their eyes scared. A door opened, and everybody clambered out. They were in the countryside, open space except for a few houses. The passengers of the train sat and stood on the grass, talking and whispering. A few wardens huddled together. Bobby charged over.
"Hey! Hey! What's goin' on?"
Elliot joined him. "Hey, excuse me, what is happening? Why have we stopped here?"
One warden looked at him. "Sir, we lost contact."
The warden glanced at his silent friends. "With everyone."
