Six Sacred Stones Part 2
Alby stood there, crying his eyes out. He couldn't believe what he had gotten himself into. So far this summer, he had been chased out of his friend's farmhouse by the Chinese soldiers, been flown all over the world in Jack West's former jumbo jet, the Halicarnassus and to top it off he had been shot in the shoulder by the American's. He was only 12 years old! He clutched Jack's fireman helmet and sobbed.
"Daddy!" cried Lilly.
"Jack," said Wizard in astonishment.
"Oh my god," sighed a striking Irish woman by the name of Zoe. "Jack, no," then she clutched Lilly to her chest and cried. Everyone in the canyon was frozen. Jack was dead, the bad guys had got away and what was worse, the person who had killed Jack was his own father. Jack West Senior.
When they had just finished packing up, every one heard a groan. It was not loud, but everyone heard it because they had their eyes and ears open for the enemy. Lily had heard it first. She had gone to pick up Alby from the edge of the void when she heard it. After a moment, Alby heard it to and all of a sudden Jack West Jr climbed out of the void, only using one ice pick.
"Daddy!" Lily cried. She leapt over to him lying, panting on the stone.
Alby looked stunned and speechless. Then he cried out in joy. "Jack's alive! Jack's alive!" he cried so everyone could hear him.
Wizard, Zoe and Sea Ranger ran so fast over there, their feet barley touched the ground.
"Gave us a right good scare there, mate," said Sea Ranger in relief. "How many times can a guy die and then come back to life?"
Zoe and Wizard were speechless. Lily and Alby were hugging him and Sea Ranger asking him how he did it.
"Well," Jack started, a bit out of breath. "I was falling with that idiot Switchblade in the harness. I thought to myself, you are not going to die, over and over. Then I looked down at Switchblades waist and saw that Switchblade had an ice pick. I grabbed it after a struggle and leaped from the harness to the wall and dug the pick into the dirt wall. The smooth stone stoped after about 200 metres. Then I grabbed a nail from my pocket and dug that in beside the pick and hauled myself up with my metal left arm," he took a breath.
"Now shall we continue the chase?" With that he got up and walked over to the submarine.
