Chapter 9

Still Before the Explosion

Johnathon had finally reached the level he needed after a day, looking out he saw his uncle was still here. Why wasn’t the man smiling? He’d helped to capture a dangerous criminal, though here Johnathon smiled, he wouldn’t be captured much longer. Ah good! His skin was starting to glow from the excess of energy, that was when he saw his uncle panic and start throwing shields around the council, nodding at Ben.

Johnathon thought well, at least he is still on my side mostly, guess I was wrong. Too bad, I just hope this doesn’t kill him. Ten seconds later the entire building exploded leaving him free, searching he felt everyone was alive and lent a bit of power to his uncle.

After the Explosion

Flashing out Johnathon headed for the keep, he had to see Lana a last time. Appearing in the keep he reached out trying to find Lana, damn it! His mother and Lana’s mother were gone why the hell couldn’t he feel any of them or Lana? A moment later Trina come out of a nearby room, Johnathon reached out and grabbed her around her throat,

“Hello, my bitch of a sister, where is Lana?”

“I don’t kno..., Johnathon I can’t breathe!” Trina gasped out.

“I don’t f•©king give a shit!” He roared in her face, “I am here to see her, I’ll kill everyone in the family to find her,” sneering he looked straight into Trina’s eyes, “that includes you my bitch of a sister!”

“I told you she is gone but Johnathon you have to know.” Trina tried to get out between tears and choking.

“Tell me what? You f•©king love me? NO! I loved you! I risked everything to bring you back EVERY DAMN THING!” Johnathon shouted his anger and power growing.

“I do love you Johnny,” she said.

“I told you..., “ Johnathon started.

“Lana is pregnant!” Trina rushed out.

“What!?” Johnathon said suddenly in shock, dropping his sister.

“Yes, we just found out earlier today. We were all in shock especially Lana, but she was so proud.” Trina stated

“Trina, I have to go. I am losing control of the power I let it all out, I can’t put it back, there is too much of an excess.” Johnathon said in calm low tones. “Tell father, I know he has the power, I’ve known for some time.” Turning to stare at Trina’s tear-streaked face, “tell father, I am going as far away as I can. Only another like me can help, he is the only one, but I’m not holding my breath for help from him. I’m going to go and f•©king die! You tell that asshole of a father of ours that!” Johnathon screamed, and then just as suddenly was gone.

Tom was on his trail pushing his self to catch his son; he didn’t have much time he had to get Johnathon to release the excess power. Sighing there was only one way shouldn’t be too hard, considering just how much Johnathon hated his guts. Tom went over the conversation that he would have with his son a dozen times before he felt Johnathon’s power start to level out. What the hell? Johnathon shouldn’t be able to do that, a few moments later Tom saw why.

The smoke he saw at a distance gave him a pretty good idea what Johnathon was trying to do. The only problem was there weren’t enough things he could blow to hell that would release enough energy to save him. Johnathon had blown the hell out of the island the power had dropped a bit but there was still far too much to close the locks. While firing he’d almost gotten one of the locks closed but had failed.

Three islands later he managed to get one of the locks closed but there was still far too much power, at least now part of it would be directed inward. About two hundred miles offshore somewhere over the Atlantic, Johnathon felt another presence following him, smiling so that son of a bitch had decided to follow him after all! Tom felt a sudden change in his son’s power, what the hell? The excess had closed some but it was still far too high. Flying on he could see the remnants of well over twenty islands that Johnathon had blown the hell out of. Then about a mile further Tom stopped short, Johnathon was waiting, hovering, with a sadistic, twisted smile on his face.

“Hello father,” Johnathon spat out, “come to check out your latest f•©k up? You sorry son of a bitch,” With that Johnathon fired a huge blast at Tom, at first Tom had no trouble diverting it. “What’s wrong old man too much for you?” Johnathon snarled firing an even more intense blast and holding it in a steady stream.

Tom could feel Johnathon’s power double then triple, smiling inward he thought come on boy I know you have a lot more than that give it to me. When Tom remained unaffected Johnathon still hadn’t increased.

“So old man you have more than I thought but you’re so old, I know your power will fail,” Johnathon shouted out.

“Really Johnny, this is all you got?” Tom knew he hated that name, he had to get Johnathon madder, and the power was still too high. “Come on boy I had more than this when I was half your age! You’re pathetic! You’re so f•©king mad at me? You blame me? Come on boy! Destroy me! I doubt you have the power!” Tom said sneering at his son to emphasize his feigned disdain for the power Johnathon was producing. With a screaming snarl Johnathon re-opened the lock and poured everything into the solid blast he was sending at Tom, Again Tom smiled finally! Tom opened almost all his power right before Johnathon’s blast hit him.

Tom was slightly caught off guard as the power was slightly more than he had expected. Driving him back Johnathon was screaming trying his best to destroy his father, nothing was going to get in his way NOTHING! Holy shit Tom thought his well, is indeed deeper than mine but I can feel that the excess is almost used up come on boy! It was at that moment that Tom felt Johnathon’s blast start to penetrate his shield, Damn it! Opening the last of his power it was barely enough to deflect the blast, barely; Tom was still feeling a stray piece, pierce his shield striking him.

Johnathon knew this was finally it, kill his old man then there’d be no one to interfere anymore. Damn it the old man had the power alright, but Johnathon smiled can he keep it up? Tom was starting to feel exhausted he hadn’t held the power up this long in centuries, the strain was incredible! Two hours they had been at it neither giving way, neither decreasing their power, neither willing to admit defeat. Tom knew he was going to die he could feel the exhaustion welling up in his body, it wouldn’t be long now.

Johnathon had to smile he could feel the old man starting to falter, good! He’d be dead soon then this would all be over! With a last push he put everything he had left into one last blast. Tom could feel the change in Johnathon and guessed he too was exhausted.

Tom felt Johnathon gathering for a last blast everything he had, so that’s his plan huh? Time to die again Tom thought. Drawing in a huge breath Tom dropped all his levitation power just as Johnathon released his blast.

Dropping like a rock Tom hit the water like a knife heading deep into the ocean. Johnathon’s blast followed him and started to follow but was soon rendered away by the water. Johnathon’s eyes grew large as he tried to gather again to fire a bolt that could kill under water, he almost had it then his body failed him. Then Johnathon also dropped like a rock into the ocean. Tom emerged with Johnathon’s unconscious body, barely able to stay above the water. Tom set down on what was left of the last island Johnathon had destroyed.

Damn Tom thought, I’m really getting too damn old for this shit, the power was still there in him but it was so weak right now though Tom knew that would change soon. Reaching in Tom could see Johnathon’s power center, he soon found the locks that his son had used ingenious! Tom started to close them. He had nine of the ten closed when he saw the horror of the Rinora Crystal. The pain Johnathon had suffered trying to keep it in check, then finally being able to take it off. The horror he had trying to hide the night his sister died, how he blamed his self. Closing the last lock Tom then put the energy barrier his father had taught him to use that effectively canceled the power ‘til the barrier was removed.

Tom sighed he was still going to be pissed as hell when he awoke, and then there was the problem of the council. He could take them all as he knew all their weaknesses, and hell with Johnathon there was no contest but that he’d have to see. Johnathon awoke an hour later feeling tired as hell, what the hell he was alive? The old man hadn’t killed him? What the hell was going on all the locks were closed and there was a barrier over the locks, he could feel the power but could only touch it. Try as he might, he couldn’t remove the barrier yeah, he could use the power, but it was almost like it was part of his normal magic.

Tom felt Johnathon awaken; he’d moved a ways off so the first thing his son saw wasn’t him.

“Alright old man, I know your still here you wouldn’t go far from a criminal, time to talk what are you going to do?” Johnathon called out toward where his father was.
