When I got home that night I went to upstairs to my room. I pulled the second case from the side of my dresser. I haven't moved it since I threw it. Inside the case was 5 knifes on the top half each a different color. Red, blue, green, purple, and orange with silver ends. On the bottom half was two longer knifes. One was black and the other….was gold with silver ends. I lost it the first time I saw it but now I was going to have to take it.

I took all the knives out and then the knife cases fell out. It's like my mother wants me to fight back. I strap the cases on my wrist and put the red and blue in it. I feel the sliver ends of the knifes. It's like there is a picture. I shake my head. I have to get ready. I strap the gold and black in my waist and leave the rest alone. I take the rest the stuff my mother gave me and I put it in my pockets. Now if I die I die with some of my mother with me. After that I put on my black hooded jacket.

I rush down the stairs and lock the house up. I don't know when I will be back, but there is a keypad to get into the house. My house was in a farm land but the city was a couple miles away. It gave us space but close enough to give near society. Of course we have no neighbors which were nice. I can't take my bike because I might not have time to come back for it, might as well walk.

It was a beautiful night, with the stars out and the moon full. The corn they grow here was now being collected. The noise of the crickets could be heard. Some of the lighting bugs were glowing. I was following the street north. The coldness of the night felt wonderful. Every time I exhale I would feel the warmth air

I enter the city with some of the street lights are flickering. The all of the stores are dark and closed. The only the different color of the shops gives the feeling of upbeat. The best part about this night was the still cold. Everyone thinks I crazy when I talk about it. Still cold is when its pure cold and not the wind or anyone runs through it. It feels wonderful.

I turn left on to an alleyway. It was the end off 100th avenue. The alleyway was dark with a couple of trashcans lying on the side of the store. There was a red fire escape from the top of the roof to the second floor. There was a ladder hanging down from the fire escape to the ground. The rest was to dark to see. I walk to the end and putting my hands to feel the ends of the knifes on my wrists.

"Glad of you to show up." Said a dark mechanical voice.

I spun around to see a medium sized person wearing all black. If this person didn't speak you wouldn't even know you that they were here.

"What do you want from me and how do you know about me?"

"I just here to help you! Remember you came here it was your choice. You need a job to pay for your bills and I am here to help you."

"Alright what do you want from me?"

"I need someone who can sneak up to Great Serpent Mound in Ohio and find some info on it!"

"What kind of info?"

"You will receive the info tomorrow if you accept."

"How will I get there?"

"We will give you some money for a ticket to get there."

I thought about it. It would be good to get a job like this hmmmm.
