Life was hard for me, my name was JJ Parker. My mother was called Nina Bruno and my father was called Jacob Parker, I had a big brother brother, Max and a little sister, Danni. I was twelve when my family died, my brother was fifteen and my sister was nine. My house was set on fire as a joke by some punk friends of my brother's, I got out in time but my family wasn't so fortunate. My house exploded.
I was sent from my hometown of Connecticut to live my uncle Jack in Las Vegas, he was a cab driver and we didn't talk much. I stayed with him in his little apartment which wasn't big enough for the two of us, he would be up quite late punching his punchbag. The neighbours constantly yelled at each other.
I looked a lot like my parents, a good mix. I had long, black hair down to my hips and shocking violet eyes that cause a lot of arguments. My father had blue eyes and my mother had brown eyes so when she pops me out with violet eyes, Daddy gets a little suspicious. They got over it eventually.
That day started out like any other day, I was fifteen and wearing my black tank top, dark jeans, knee high heel boots, locket, earrings, two rings, bracelet, military hat and sunglasses. My normal glasses and biker jacket were in my lap with my magazine. I wore sunglasses to hide my eyes considering the fact that they freaked people out.
Jack and I were in his cab and were getting ready to go when he decided to go and have a talk with some guys in front who were blocking us. He punched them both and pinned them to the car.
"Idiot" I mumbled.
A police officer came and told the guys to beat it and Jack came back to the car. He began driving, I looked up at the mirror and then back to my magazine.
"Jack, there's some kids in the back of your cab" I said, not looking up.
Jack looked up at the mirror and stopped the car immediately. Several car horns honkey behind us, Jack looked panicked while I rolled my eyes.
"Where'd you come from?" he asked the kids.
"Outside" the boy answered.
"Yeah, I figured that part out on my own. How'd you get in the car?" Jack said.
"Through that portal" the girl said as she and the boy pointed at the door.
More car horns honked, the boy spoke again "I'm Seth. This is my sister, Sara. We require your transportation services immediately"
Jack didn't look convinced "Really? Well, I require-"
Sara cut him off "A currency transaction"
The boy held out a huge amount a cash "Would this amount suffice?"
I took it happily "It'll do"
Jack looked confused "What, did you two rob a bank?"
"Is this acceptable, Jack Bruno?" Sara asked, quickly.
"How'd you know my name?" Jack asked.
Sara pointed to his licence.
"If we have a deal for your sevices, we must move forward rapidly. It's urgent we get to our destination without delay" Seth said.
More car horns honked, I glared at Jack, noise irritated me, he noticed "All right, all right, I'm going"
Jack gena driving and looked at Seth and Sara "Where to?"
I went back to my magazine, I was no longer interested. Out of the corner of my eye, I saw Seth pull out some weird thing. It made a beeping noise as he fiddled with it.
"I need an address" Jack said.
Sara pointed forward "We must travel in that direction"
"I'm gonna need something a little bit more specific than just 'that direction'" Jack said, jerking his arm forward.
"We must locate latitude 40.54 cross-intersecting longitude..." Seth started.
Jack put his hand to stop him "We're just gonna stick with that direction"
I went back to my magazine, we had a long way to go.
I will update soon
