The Origins Saga part 1: The Girl
A week passed since Galloway defeated Naar. He was still working on his alchemy, having nearly been blown apart twice and nearly melting off his face thrice. Almost everyone had gone home for the time being, save for F. Galloway, Weiila, Val, and Chris. Finally, things might be going good…
Mox stood patiently in the alley, watching the sun set. Tonight was the night. Tonight he would finish Galloway off once and for all.
He glanced at the watch he had recently mugged off an old lady. Strangely, the numbers were flying all over the place. Also, radio waves were being heard all around him. Like always, something wierd was something.
Just then, a large, green bubble appeared, with what looked like several different color copies of a thirteen-year-old girl floating inside. They combined into one form, and the bubble dissapeared, dropping her unceremoniously on the ground. Her clothes were ripped and dirty, her face was covered in dirt and sweat, and her red hair was in shambles. She was not in the best shape.
She got up and looked around frantically. Her face had a look of complete terror on it. Mox could tell that something was strange. Still, she was in front of the bunker. He’d have to kill her, too.
Just then, though, a heavy hand fell onto Mox’s shoulder. He turned, and saw a towering, muscular man standing behind him. He was nearly eight feet tall, with about two hundred metric tons of muscle making up his entire body. However, the big clencher was his face; Mox could swear he’d seen that somewhere before.
“Mox, right?” asked the behemoth. “Guess we have to stop you from killing Galloway.” Mox was shocked. How the hell did these guys know that? Then he saw the eyes in the alley…as well as the six other figures coming out from there…
The girl walked, dazed and confused, down the edge of the water. Then she tripped and fell over the side. Strangely, she landed in a small, futuristic boat. It launched itself straight at the large, white thing in the middle of the water.
Galloway continued checking his watch. Where the hell was she, anyway? She was supposed to be back with the pizzas by now…
Just then, a knock was heard. Everyone looked expectantly at the door, their bodies half-starved, their eyes lusting for food. Galloway raced to the door and tore it off its hinges.
It wasn’t F. Galloway. It was a young girl. Galloway just looked at her, wondering how she’d even got here; only a trusted few knew where the Boat of the Future was.
“Who are you?” he asked. However, the girl was already staring at him. She was not acting normal, that was for sure. Then she did the most bizzare thing ever. Something that shocked everyone watching it with sheer surprise. Sure, it was a little funny, but it was still really, really wierd.
She hugged Galloway.
Mox crawled out of the alley, barely alive. He now knew who was behind this. He cursed at their master before nearly falling unconcious.
He then noticed that girl version of Galloway walking briskly by, carrying about twenty pizzas. She looked at the bunker, saw a boat, and flew over. Using all his strength, Mox followed her at a distance, then landed on one of the engines.
F. Galloway noticed that a girl had firmly attached herself to Galloway. After all, that’s NOT a common occurance. “Okay,” she said, “dinner’s here.” Galloway grapped a crowbar and finally pried the girl off.
“Okay,” he said, “who are you, and what do you want?”
“My name,” she said, “is Maria. And I just wanted to say hi.”
“Okay,” said Galloway. “Now go home. It’s getting late.” She didn’t move; instead, she began to bawl. Galloway immediately sensed that she was probably lost, and he couldn’t do anything about it for now, due to his food-induced state.
“Alright,” he said. “Stay for now. We’ll get you home in the morning.”
