Book 1: Past
Chapter 2: Genesis, Part 2: Josiah's Temporal Mission
Josiah was shocked sa pamamagitan ng this. His sister just did the one thing you aren't allowed to do in the future. And as of now, she’s what's known as a time-criminal. It’s a serious thing to time-travel illegally like this and doing so could endanger the time stream permanently. Well, it’s too late: Bryxx had made her ilipat and was sent to Crimsonville, TN of the past, arriving on May 10th 2012 at 3:10 pm. She appeared, materializing on some road with trees on both sides of it. She was puzzled as she tried figuring out where in the time stream she was. She looked around and noticed the blue sky and the road she was on, which was a highway.
"Where did I send myself?" she asked herself, glancing down at the blue Chronolizer.
As she stared at it, she suddenly heard a car honking its horn as it was coming towards her. She jumped a lil and looked towards the sounds direction, and saw the vehicle--an SUV--heading for her. It was too close for her to ilipat outta the way without being hit, so the driver swerved his car around towards the right to avoid her. The driver went off the road and hit a tree. The impact was hard--hard enough to make a huge dent on the bumper and cause a gas leak. Bryxxandra was too scared herself to even think of what had happened to the driver. Her puso was pounding while she tried to remain calm from the shock.
She felt of her head, arms, and legs to "check" of she was still OK--and she was OK.
"OK, I'm all here--thank GOD...." she said, still breathing rather hard.
After a few seconds, she began to realize that someone else may be hurt--the driver in the SUV. She ran over to the SUV, and checked if the driver was OK or not. She looked inside it and saw that it was a guy driving the SUV. He didn't appear to be seriously hurt, but he was knocked out from impact. She then heard a dripping sound coming from the car and looked underneath it. She smelled the gas and wasn't sure what to make of it--but something told her it wasn't a good sign. So with quick thinking, she opened the car door and tried to get him outta the vehicle. She tried to lift him up and gently drag him from the car and on to the road, several feet away from the vehicle. Afterwards, she began to gently slap him to try to wake him up.
"Nice going, Bry--you nearly killed someone...." she told herself, still trying to wake the man up.
Just then, the car exploded--car parts going everywhere.
"Whoa! So getting him outta there WAS a good thing...." she told herself.
He finally came to segundos later, seeing Brylinda stand over him. He was a bit startled sa pamamagitan ng her and sat up rather quickly.
"Are you OK...? What's your name?" she asked him.
He stood up and looked down at his clothing (a red sando and jeans) to see if he was OK, and then looked back to her.
"Jason... and who are you? You came outta NOWHERE...." he asked her, rather confused.
"I'm Bryxxandra. And, um.... yeah, let's forget about that--where exactly am I?" she asked him in return.
Jason became very suspicious of Bryxxandra just then, and had this uneasy look on his face.
“I’m not going forget it…. YOU almost killed me, remember?” he asked her, clearly still mad about what happened.
“Oh, yeah…. Look, I’m sorry about that, I swear! I was just….” she said, pausing because she didn't know what else to say.
Jason crossed his arms and asked, “Just what? Why where you in the middle of the road?”
She hesitated a moment, deciding on whether she should tell him or not. And then she looked over to his wrecked vehicle.
“I’m really sorry about your…. uh, vehicle,” she said, actually feeling really bad about the whole thing.
Jason, however, wasn't too thrilled. You could tell from the mean look on his face that he wasn't letting her get off so easily.
“Don’t try getting outta this! Do you know how stupid that was to….” he shouted at her, then suddenly turned his head to see the damaged car.
When he saw his SUV, his eyes widened at the sight of it. He was devastated—he had just got his car fixed and then Bryxxandra happened.
“My SUV…. You’re SO paying for this!” he shouted angrily at her.
Bryxxandra could tell he was angry, and she actually felt really bad about the whole thing.
“Look, I really didn't mean to cause any of this. I just had to get away…” she said, with a sad look.
“Away..? From what?” he asked.
“The future, where I’m from… I’m from the taon 2112,” she declared, not ipinapakita any signs of hesitation or fear of doing so.
When Jason heard that, he got this weird look on his face, like he was thinking she was crazy.
“You know what? Just forget it, I’ll WALK to the damn store….” he told her, walking rather quickly away from her.
“Wait a minute, I wasn't kidding!” she shouted out to him.
She ran after him, trying to stop him. Jason stopped and asked, “Dude, what are you doing?”
“Listen, Jason, I really am from the future….” She told him, reaching in her pocket for her skycycle capsule.
Jason refused to listen to her anymore, and waved his hands in her face to indicate he had enough with her “lies”. He walked right past her, and as he did so, she looked back at him.
“Where is it you’re going to? Won’t you need a ride there?” she asked him.
“None of your business…..” he declared.
As he walked away, she got an idea in order to prove where she was from, and got out her skycycle capsule and then proceeded to activate it. After activation, she quickly tossed it near him. The capsule rolled passed him and then stopped right in front of him. Jason stopped suddenly to look at the capsule.
“What the he--?” he quietly to himself.
Then the capsule began to light up and morph into a skycycle. Jason jumped back in shock of this and didn't know what to make of this.
“Holy crap, what the hell just happened?!” he asked Bryxxandra, looking back at her.
Bryxxandra smiled and sinabi to him, “See? I told you I was from the future. And don’t worry, it’s just a skycycle…..”
She walked over to the skycycle and got on it. Jason still didn't have a clue what was going on. He had calmed down some, but had a lot of tanong to ask her after seeing this.
“But…. I don’t understand. How is this possible?” he asked her, his eyes scanning the machine she was on.
“I’ll explain everything on the way. Now where was it you had to go to?” she asked him.
“The store—before you showed up, I was on my way to buy my sisters’ birthday present….”
“Oh, well get on and I’ll take you there….” she insisted.
Afterwards, he got on the vehicle and flew towards town. While Bryxxandra was in the past, Josiah was in the elevator heading upward, gathering his thoughts on what had happened.
“Oh, how am I gonna explain this to them? Should even bother telling them? Wait, of course, they need to know…. Right?” he thought to himself.
The door finally opened and he stepped out. As he did so, he grew very nervous.
"Mom? Gabby?" he asked them.
His mother, an elderly woman--was sitting on the sopa with her daughter--Josiah's aunt, Gabriella. She is often called "Gabby", so the mainly call her that. They looked at him and the mom asked, "What is it?"
Josiah grew madami nervous and said, "Uh…. Nothing, mom.”
Gabriella noticed Bryxxandra hadn't been seen in a while and she asked Josiah, "Where's Bryxxandra at, Josiah?"
"Uh I don't know... I'll go find her." he said, nervously going back into the elevator.
He pushed the basement button on the pader and it went downward.
"I am NOT telling them where she is..." he said, as the elevator stopped to a halt--the door opening.
He stepped back into the room where they had discovered the hidden Chronolizers and ran to the metal door. He walked inside and went over to the red Chronolizer and grabbed it. He then began staring at it, wondering why these things were even in the basement
"What were these Chronolizers even DOING in our house? Who put them here?" he asked himself.
He shook his head, and sighed, saying, "No, I can't think about that right now, I have to....."
He stopped as he continued staring at the device, thinking back to when she flashed away. He sighed and said, "I have to time-travel. As mad as I am at her, I can't just LEAVE her...."
He strapped it to his wrist and said, "Chronolizer ON..."
It turned on, and he then sinabi the petsa in which Bry went to, and it confirmed it. Suddenly, a guy in black clothing appeared. When Josiah noticed him, he stepped back a moment--showing a bit of fear of this stranger.
"Give me that!" the man shouted.
Josiah held up his fists--staring hard at him, saying, "What do you WANT?"
The guy growled and said, "The Chronolizer: hand it OVER! My mga kaibigan need it!"
He ran to Josiah and attempted grab it from him, but Josiah wasn't gonna have it. He went towards him with a fist, just as the other guy tilted his body backwards, to avoid the hit. He then grabbed Josiah's fist tightly, jumped upwards and kicked him twice in the stomach. That last kick he did knocked Josiah back several inches. He kept on resisting as much as he could as they both fought over it. Josiah punched him and then he himself was punched sa pamamagitan ng the guy. Josiah tackled him to the floor as the guy grab a hold of the device.
"Who are you? How did you even get in my HOUSE?" he asked the guy.
He growled again, and said, "None of your business!"
The guy grabbed a hold of it once madami and began to pull it off his arm. As they fought, Josiah shouted out, "Let GO!"
The Chronolizer's voice activation system mistook what he sinabi as a command and the energy from the device surrounded them. And then, it flashed, sending them to the taon 2012. But now what? Will Josiah FIND her? And what is up with the man in black? Why is he after that Chronolizer so bad?
