Continued from this story…
At first, it looked like an ordinary marble, but it was far from it. Johan didn’t know how but he recognized it immediately. He looked around and realized he was no longer in the warehouse. He picked it up and lightly pressed his fingers against the surface. The ball glowed blue instantly as a familiar man appeared before him. “Johan,” the man smiled and all of a sudden, words formed at Johan’s lips, “dad,” he gasped.
“Son, you’ve grown so much.”
“What. Is. Happening?” Johan asked slowly.
“You must’d activated your speech. Don’t worry, you will be home soon.” Amari disappeared leaving Johan alone in the barren red-soiled landscape. What did he mean? Johan wondered and looked down at the ball, no longer glowing but hairline fractures started to run along the perimeter of the ball. Frightened, he dropped it.
As he looked up again, his landscape changed again. He was back in the warehouse and a gun was an inch from his forehead. “Time to go, Alien.” Captain Benjamin smirked.
