Mind you, I wrote this when I was fourteen. 🙂
Amy called the others. I woke up five minutes later in the garage with everyone there, including Cameron. Lana was still knocked out and seeing her like that…it pulled on my heartstrings.
“How do you feel man?” Ken asked me.
“Amy told us what happened.” Renny noted.
“I guess there’s more to you than meets the eye.” Ryu said with his arms crossed.
“There is.” I told him.
Cameron stepped forward with that sky blue hair of hers. “I’m sorry, Majestic. I didn’t want to come between you and Lana like that. I just really like you.”
I winced with pain in my back as I stood up and looked her in her eyes. “Don’t worry. Lana and I had nothing to do with you. If you want to go out with me, I’m all for it.”
Her face lit up with a beaming smile. We hugged. It hurt more than I thought it would, so I playfully nudged her back.
Ken sighed as he approached and brushed against my shoulder. “You know, you guys going out won’t exactly ease the tension between you and Lana.”
“Lana doesn’t love me, Ken. The only reason why she hated me so much is because I beat her in a fight before.”
Renny rolled her eyes. “That’s all fine and dandy, but would you mind explaining the lightning incident?
“No one can just catch a bolt of lightning and throw it back, Majestic. It’s impossible. Even the Masters of the Universe can’t.” She said.
I shook my head. “I can’t explain it.”
“I can.” Amy spoke up to say. “As I watched the fight, I noticed Majestic has the ability to raise his power level.”
“What?” Ryu said in shock and anger. “No way. That’s impossible!”
“As I was saying, Majestic has the ability to raise his power level. That’s the reason he hurts so much right now. Must be his first time in a real battle. And…I don’t think he caught the lightning. He more or less absorbed it and generated his own.”
As Amy was telling us this, Ryu kept shaking his head in disbelief. “This is ridiculous. He’s just a normal human being.” He grumbled.
“He’s more than human.” Chris said. “He’s the son of a Master of the Universe.”
All eyes were on Chris. And so, Chris told them everything he told me the day he showed me his powers. He showed them.
“So you have the power to freeze things. That only leads to another question. What are you?” Ryu asked him.
Chris said he didn’t know. When I asked what a Master of the Universe was, Renny scoffed and said, “Don’t worry about it, Majestic. I seriously doubt that you’re the son of one. If you were, you’d be living in Avalon right now.”
I rolled my eyes. “Alright, so once again. What’s a Master of the Universe?”
“There are twelve Masters, Majestic. Each control an aspect of the Universe. Sort of like the Greek gods. One has the power of water, another fire, and so on. Don’t get me wrong, their power pales in comparison to the one true God. No one worships the Masters, but nonetheless, they are immortal.” Amy explained.
“Isn’t a Master of the Universe’s heart…it’s not really a heart, right?” Chris asked.
Mina nodded. “That’s true, Chris! Instead of an actual heart that pumps blood, they’re heart is made up of…”
“A diamond?” Chris asked.
“That’s right!” Mina said.
“Well then. We’re looking at a son of the Master of the Universe.” Chris said, patting me on the back.
“Whatever, Chris. Yeah, like we’re just going to believe all that over a dream. You guys have a good night. It’s been real.” Ryu said, all cold and dismissive as he walked off towards the limo.
Ken followed. “I have to tell ya, boys. It does sound crazy.”
“Yeah, well just remember!” Chris shouted. “When Majestic does all sorts of amazing things, just remember!”
Ken smirked, put his arm around Serena, and walked off.
The rain was gone by then. The sun was going down. In the cold sky, all you could see was gray stretched cotton balls that seem to flow from the sun. Lana was still knocked out, breathing in short breaths. As everyone branched off with their own discussions, I put the back of my hand to Lana’s head. It was hot.
“Chris.” I called over. “She’s hot bro. Do you think you can cool her down?”
“Hang on!” Rei stressed. “Have you mastered your abilities yet? I don’t want you to turn her head into a popsicle!”
“Relax!” Chris smiled. “I got this.”
