Ugh, this story is long over do. Sorry that this first chapter is nothing but a filler chapter, just presenting the main two characters of my story. The next chapter will be nothing but adding in the demons of the story. Afterward, the fun will begin.

John was in his room packing his stuff getting ready to go to BPRD. When, he heard the pattern of hurrying footsteps coming his way. It wasn't hard to guess who it was. Being that this house only had three residents and they were way too light to be his uncle's. Therefore, they could be other than-
"Big Brother" a red head boy screamed as he burst through the door, jumping onto the older boy's back. He continues to chant "Is it true?" as he cling to john's back, wrapping his arms tightly around his neck.
John just laughed as he reached to receive the boy off his back. "Is what true?"
"Are we really going to the big city?" He asked trying to hold back the excitement in his voice, failing miserably.
"Yes but more correctly going back."
He went back to packing his bags while the younger boy took a seat on the bed.
"Oh that's right. We did live in the big city once."
"Yea, you don't remember?" he asked his little brother, who shook his head in responds.
"Well it was four years ago." John said, putting his hands on his chin. "So I'm guessing you don't remember our house either?" He asked, receiving another shake of the head.
"Was it big?" The boy asked as he sat on the bed. John went back to his packing.
"Yeah, almost as big as Uncle Sam's house actually. But, of course it didn't have as much land as him."
"No one has as much land as me." A deep voice said from the doorway. They both turn to look at a husky man. He wore a hat and an open stripe shirt with faded jeans.
"Well lots of people have the same amount of land." John said to his uncle.
"That made be true. But it doesn't have that feel." Sam said moving his hands over an imaginary smooth surface. The other two occupants just look at him.
"What you mean Uncle?" The red head boy finally asks after the long staring contest.
"Well Colin, every house has a vibe, that thing that makes it different from being a house and a home and if it is a home, the vibe spread over the area. Making even the smallest of homes, seem like it bigger than it is. That can be done by having a loving and caring family inside of it." He said wrapping an arm around each of them.
Colin giggled "Like us?"
"Exactly!" The older man said while ruffling his hair. "That's why no one has as much land as me. Cause their vibe can't match up to a barn taken care of by a loving caring family of three." Sam finishes kissing both them on the forehead.
"But the Kents have more land than you and their eight of them." John added.
"You know you're a spoiled sport." He said ruffling the man hair and releasing them both.
Straighten his hair back out. "Just stating the fact Uncle." He said to the retreating form.
The man laughed a deep hearty laugh, turning back toward them. "True, but you still ruined the moment. Anyways I be downstairs cooking you kids something to eat. You got a long ride ahead of you." Turning around and heading downstairs to the kitchen. They both grin as they could hear his heavy footsteps heading down the hall and then downstairs, fading from their ear range.
John went back to packing the remaining items into his suitcase. While his younger brother ponder in his thoughts, thinking about all the fun they can have in the big city. "Hey you should be packing too. We have to leave in three hours to get on the bus to the airport. So-"
"Don't worry Uncle help me pack last night." Colin interrupted him.
He turns to give him a weird look. "I started packing the first time you told me."
"But that was months ago." The young man said giving him a strange look. The boy just nodded in return.
"Yep!" John still had a puzzled look on his face.
"But if you started the first time I told you. Why was Uncle helping you packing last night?" He inquired.
Colin scratches the back of his head. "Well I'm not that good of a packer." He said looking like a chastised puppy. The older boy sighs.
"It's okay. I would be amazed if you were, seeing as you never done it before." John said, finishing the last part under his breath.
"Yeah but he help me pack all the necessities!" The boy sung gleefully.
"Oh and what would that be?" He said as he listens to the boy. Colin was naming everything that would be classified as a necessity, such as clothing, bedding, hygiene, and entertainment. Entertain being video games and comic books which aren't technically a necessity. But to a 12 year old boy it is.
"Did you pack Rory?" He asked the still talking boy. The red head grasped, looking at him as if he just said the worst thing imaginable.
"Rory is not a thing! He's a being." His younger brother screeched.
"Oh if that so, where is he right now?" The older male asked the offended kid with a huge grin.
"Oh that's easy. He downstairs helping uncle packed his clothes" Colin said offering his older brother a huge grin of his own. This made his older brother frown at him. "What's wrong?"
The young man look at the ground and then back to him. "Um…you know Uncle Sam not going with us right?"
"What!" The boy gave him a confused look.
"I only able to get me and you tickets. Plus Uncle would never leave this farm."
"Well maybe neither will I?" He pouts crossing his arms.
"Colin?" He called to the boy currently ignoring him. "Don't you want to go to the big city and see Garfield again?" John said trying to persuade the boy.
"Not if it means leaving him here alone by himself to take care of the farm and if Garfield was here he would say the same thing." Colin push out as he heard the triangle play in the distant.
"Look like it time for breakfast. Let's let uncle decide." The older of the two says as he grabs his luggage and heads downstairs.
"Let's let him." The younger one says as he stomps down the stairs pass his brother.
"Boys it time to eat." Sam says right before they enter the dining room, both wearing identical scowls. "What got your pigs in the mud?"
"John wants me to leave you here alone to tend for farm on your own."
"I told him I only had two tickets and you wanted to stay on the farm."
"But you can't do it all on your own."
"I'm sure he is more than capable of take caring the farm by himself. He did it for many years without us."
"Yeah but we been here so long that-"
Sam stuck two fingers between his lips and whistle, ending any further arguments. They both turn to look at him.
"Listen Colin your brother is right." Before Colin could protest he said "But you're also right as well. I have to admit. That I have gotten so use to you two being here that, it will be hard getting back used to being just me here. But I can assure you that I will."
Colin looks down at his feet. "Are you sure?" He asked
He got on one knee and looks the boy in the eyes. "I promise and even if I can't I could just ask the Kents for help. Cause clearly the have more than enough hands over there." He said looking at the older of the two.
"But, what if they can't help you? What if there a hurricane and they're too busy looking after themselves to can look after you?" The youngest cried.
The questions caught both of them off going. Considering the situation Colin had depicted was totally possible. They wouldn't any strangers to tornado and hurricanes but.
"If that situation every a' rises. This place would be all yours, John's and Garfield's." Sam said.
"But I don't want you to die. Death is an important part of life. The old must die so the new can live. Plus last time I check I wasn't dying anytime soon. You're the one who brought up the hurricane." He said as he ruffled the boy red hair and stood back up to full height "So let's eat and get you too out of here." He smiled at them and they smiled back.
Each took a seat at the table and ate their breakfast. Talking about all the new adventures they were going to have in the big city. Not soon later the boy had grabbed their stuff, said they final fell wells, jump on the bus and head on their way to the big city.
Yes I know the ending was a little rush. But I honestly didn't feel like adding any more dialogue. I think I had enough of it. Plus I will didn't have anything else for them to say.
