Chapter One-The Beginning
(Glory, April 10, 3002)
I was born to the name Jeshikah Lynn Dunlop, but back then I only went by Jai. I was born with a tattoo symbol on each arm, an M on my left arm with a black rose undera line that was under the M. On my right arm I have a D with a funny looking knife undera line that is under the D. I never knew what they meant, but now that I do...I wish I wouldn't have made such a fuss.
I guess I should start with the fact that about One Thousand years ago I was trying to figure out who I was, and who my family was. I grew up on a small island named Glory, with the only family I knew existed, my uncle and foster father Rudy Dunlop. I moved out of his place and into my own when I was to be 18. That was 998 years ago. Let me start at the beginning of this 'fantastic' journey and let you in on the past thousand years of my life...
(Glory, January 5, 2002)
"I'm not five years old anymore. I'm not going to run around in little pig-tails screaming 'daddy, daddy!' I'm 16 years old dad, you said that when I got older you would tell me where my parents are."
"I don't know where your parents are JaiLynn, and even if I did, you are still to young to find out."
"Stop calling me JaiLynn! Lynn is my middle name."
"I refuse to call you a BOYS name."
"Whatever. I'm going to Hazel's." And I slammed the door behind me.
"I don't understand why he won't tell me Hazel."
"He's just trying to protect you Jai." Hazel said as she headed in the back.
"From what though?"
"I don't know." Hazel yelled from the back room. The door opened. There was the guy that was going to change my life forever. I didn't know it at the time...If I did, I would have ran.
His face could have been modeled after the portrait of a Roman coin, his hair was the color of raven feathers which seemed to contrast with his fair skin, yet black eyes that were shadowed by dark lashes, he was wearing all black and had two tattoo's (That I could see) a wolf on his right wrist, and a snake wrapped around the left wrist. He was also wearing an upside down cross pendent carefully molded with a viper twined around it.
"Hi, I'm Alexander Remington." I looked around, but I was the only one in the room besides Hazel's son Zane. Hazel was still in the back room.
"Girls with guys names. Cute." Zane got upset and left the room to help Hazel.
"So what brings you to Glory?"
"Rudy Dunlop actually. You obviously know him?"
"Yes. He's my Dad."
"Where's your mother?"
"Oh...Well that's sad, because I know your father."
"You know my father?" Zane walked back into the room.
"Yes...Listen, if you could take me to Rudy that would help me a lot. I'm totally lost here."
"Um...Okay, he's at work."
"Where is that at?"
"Sheriffs Station. I can take you over there."
"Jai, could I talk to you for a minute?" Zane asked.
"Sure. Could you wait a minute?" I asked Alex.
"What is it Zane?" I asked after he had drug me into the back.
"I don't like that guy."
"You don't like anyone that tries to talk to me."
"There is just something about him Jai. Almost like I have seen him before."
"If I promise to be careful, will that put your mind at ease?"
"I promise Zane, I'll be careful."
"Good. Got your cellphone on?"
"Okay. You can go."
"You're just as bad as Dad." And I went back to the front. "So are you ready to go?"
"Yeah." Alex replied.
"I'll call you." Zane screamed as I shut the door quickly.
"So what's it like to live in Glory?"
"Boring...I'm not allowed to go anywhere alone, and if I do I have to be on the phone with..." My phone rang.
"Hey, it's Zane."
"Zane, why are you calling?"
"To make sure you make it to Rudy's office."
15 minutes later, and Alex was very annoyed
"Well, we're here. I'm gunna let you go now."
"Okay." And I hung up.
"So I take it you have to be on the phone with Zane."
"Basically, or whoever is available at the time."
"But you weren't alone. I was here."
"I don't think he trusts me."
"Hey Daddy!" I screamed to get Rudy out of his office and to change the subject. I had a feeling Alex knew more then he was letting on.
"This morning you said you were to old to be saying 'daddy' well come into my office, you know you don't have to knock Jailynn." I followed him to his office.
"I know, but there is a guy here to see you, over by the door, he says his name is Alex." Rudy looked over to the door and became very pale. "Dad, what's wrong?"
"Where did you meet him?" He asked with a very scared tone in his voice.
"Hazel's we walked over here."
"No, I was on the phone with Zane the whole time."
"Okay, I don't want you alone with him, understand?"
"Just go back to Hazel's, call Zane and talk to him as you leave here. We can talk when I get home.Alright Jailynn."
"Alright." I had never seen him like that before, so I just followed what he had asked, and called Zane before walking out of the office.
"I've never seen him like that you guys. It scared me. He was really pale. He said we could talk when he gets home, but I don't know when he's going to get home." My phone rang. "Hello."
"Rudy says you can go home now." A chill ran down my back.
"Who is this?"
"I'll wait until I get the call from my dad." And I hung up the phone.
"Who was that?" Zane asked.
"Alex." I was getting really wigged out. "How did he get my cellphone number?"
"Maybe Rudy gave it to him." Hazel noted.
"Dad told me to stay away from him, he wouldn't give hime my cellphone number." Rudy walked in.
"Alright Jai, lets go home."
"Rudy, are you alright?" Hazel asked.
"I'm fine. Jai, let's go home." He kinked his nec to the side.
"Well, let me talk to Hazel a minute, and we can go home."
"Fine, make it quick."
"Hazel, in the back please." I began to walk in the back.
"What is it?"
"He called me Jai. He never calls me Jai, Hazel he refuses to call me Jai, he always calls me Jailynn."
"Maybe he's realized you're old enough to..."
"He has never wanted to call me a boys name Hazel. He always, ALWAYS called me Jailynn no matter what."
"JAI, are you ready to leave yet?" Rudy hollered into the back room.
"Yeah." My phone rang. "I have to answer my phone first."
"Fine, hurry up." I looked at my caller ID and it said 'Dad's Office'.
"This is Jai."
"Jailynn, I'm stuck in my office, Alex took my keys and locked me in after he clocked me on the head."
"Yeah, who else calls you Jailynn?"
"If I'm on the phone with you, then who is here at Hazel's?"
"Alex, he can change his appearance."
"Stay on the phone, I'll be right over."
"Okay." I walked up to the front over to Rudy.
"Dad, that was Deputy Tim, he called to let me know that you forgot the dog food, I'm going to go get it, I'll meet you at home."
"Just get the dog food in the morning Jai."
"You said earlier she needs food since I forgot to feed her yesterday."
"Fine, go get the dog food." I ran all the way to Rudy's office, and remembered he was still on the phone.
"Dad? Are you still there?"
"Yeah. Whywould he believe you, we don't have adog."
"You said we could talk when we got home, so where in your office are you?"
"I collapsed on the other side of the door, and I can't move."
"Okay, I'm going to try to break the door handle."
"Okay." I reached for the door handle and my hand went right through the door, so I walked through the door. "How did you do that?" Rudy asked as I went to help him up and got distracted by the funny looking knife under his desk that resembled my tattoo.
"I don't know, but lets go home." I picked up the funny looking knife that was under the desk...
