I woke up feeling awful. My lungs ached something horrible and my head was throbbing with a massive migraine. Trying to clear my foggy brain I threw the covers off of me and went towards the bathroom.
"Man, that was some party, I gotta do tha . . ." I stopped mid-sentence as the events from the previous night flashed through my head.
Wuya showing up, me insulting her, getting the swirly of death, and finally her bone chilling statement,
"You see there, that's where you're wrong; it's not your life. It's mine. Mine to play with, mine to interfere with and mine to end, if I so choose."
Did she really own me? Could she? I mean, sure I listened to her a lot, but she didn't control me, I still did whatever I wanted, right?
"I'm Jack Spicer Evil Boy Genius, nobody owns me." I declared.
Feeling much better after my declaration, I quickly had a Jackbot grab me an aspirin and some ginger ale while I walked downstairs to my lab. On my way there I passed through multiple rooms that were in complete disarray from the party.
"And get to work cleaning up this house" I yelled to a passing bot, which quickly saluted and flew off to start the cleaning preparations.
Finally reaching the lab, I through open the door and descended down the stairs. Seating myself in front of my blueprints I waited for the aspirin. The Jackbot flew up and placed the ginger ale and pills on the table, I quickly swallowed them, hoping to ease my migraine.
"Ugh," I grumbled to myself "this all Wuya's fault, her and her stupid rules."
"Remember Jack, You better not even think about touching something as vile as Alcohol again. Or else I break every last one of your fingers, and both ankles, and leave you on your floor." He mimicked with his hand.
Who did she think she was anyway, his fucking nanny? It's not like she can watch me every second of every day. It's not like she could know what I was thinking.
I was pulled out my thoughts by the phone ringing. Realizing it was mine; I walked over to the wall and answered it.
"Yo dude! What's up?" Josh's voice sounded from the other end. I smiled a little before answering.
"Nothing man, just have the worst hangover, how about you?" I replied.
"Ya same here, but hey I got the perfect remedy for that, Emily is throwing a huge bash at her place, you in?"
Before I could answer I heard the tell-tale click of one of the other phones in my mansion being picked up. An oh so familiar voice wafted from the other phone. "No. I don't think Jack will be attending this, or any other parties of yours for a while." And with that, my phone connection went dead.
I slowly hung up the phone caught in between two emotions, anger and fear. Anger because once again Wuya was in my home, uninvited and unwanted dictating my life and fear because Wuya was in my home. I decided that I was more angry than scared and went up to go confront the witch. I walked through the house, avoiding the Jackbots as they cleaned up, searching through many of the rooms trying to find her. In the main living room I found the phone connection wire unplugged from the wall.
I went over and put back in the wall. Really? Now she was coming and answering my calls for me? Stupid creepy witch. I never did give Josh an answer though; I might as well go just to spite her. I'm sure she's long gone by now as it is.
Just to be safe though I went up to my room and used my cell phone instead of the home phone.
After a few rings he finally answered. "Oh hey, ya Josh, sorry about that, it was just my, um, aunt, she's a tad bit crazy, But ya I'll definitely go. . ."
This is where a made a huge mistake. I should have just stayed home really. But no one remembers the nights where you got plenty of sleep, right?
Later that night, I was over at Emily's, partying it up. I hadn't seen or heard from Wuya since the incident with the phone. I also took the precaution of hiding a few Jackbots in the woods near the house. I also had the shroud of shadows slipped into one of my jean pockets. Just in case.
I'll be honest; I hadn't touched anything with alcohol in it yet. I know better than to test Wuya. When she makes a threat, she means it. And I would much rather have all my limbs in order and in place. But still she never said anything about weed, or acid, or tobacco.
I was pretty baked, and just sitting on the couch, bobbing my head to the music playing. Yesterday's troubles were yesterday's troubles and right now I just wanted to relax and have fun. Which is what I was doing.
"Jak-Jak" said the cute little ginger sitting next to me. I had just met her at this party, she seemed pretty cool. When I had talked about my robots, she actually seemed pretty interested in them, not like the other girls who just pretend to be interested. Plus she was like the only other American at this party.
"Ya Wendy" I asked, trying to sneak my arm around her shoulders. Unfortunately she noticed what I was trying to do; she smiled at me and scooted away.
"Jak-Jak, why don't we go downstairs?" she looked at me suggestively, and I knew I was going to be very happy, very quickly. Hey I might even keep this girl.
"Ya lets go." I let her lead the way downstairs away from the noise and the party. We ended up in a guest room on the first floor. We walked over to the bed and I sat down. It was pretty dark in the room, with the moon in the window as the only light source.
"So Jak-Jak," she asked me, while cupping my cheek. "Why don't we get, comfortable?" As she finished her sentence, she pinned down my shoulders while straddling my waist. A smile slid its way onto my face as her hands worked down towards pants.
Suddenly one of her hands dove into my pocket. Before I could realize what was going on, her other hand wrapped around my wrist and ripped off my watch.
Wendy jumped off of me, and I let out a very high pitched scream as she grew taller, and her pretty carrot orange hair turned a bright, violent red, and her eyes turned into toxic swirls.
Wuya now stood where Wendy had been.
Shocked and beyond grossed out I quickly jumped up and reached for the shroud of shadows, only to realize that Wuya had it along with my remote control/communicator in her hands.
"Ahhhgggggg, oh my god, Wuya, that's so gross! I mean, just eww, you were on top of me, I mean like your so much older than me." I yelled at her, while quickly jumping up and trying to put some between me and her.
Wuya narrowed her eyes me, and I instantly knew that saying she was old was not very smart. With an irritable growl, she crushed my watch in one hand. I gulped and tried to move towards the door slowly.
"Jack, please, if I wanted a man, I would get a real man, not a girlish little boy. I just needed to get you away from the animals upstairs, and you can blame your hormones for the rest." She stated icily. I flinched a little at the insult but didn't stop inching towards the door.
"What do you want? I didn't drink anything, ugh, you were with me the entire party, and you never said I couldn't do anything else." I glared at her angrily, trying desperately to cover up my fear. A cold hard lump was forming in the pit of my stomach and I could feel a cold sweat drip down my back.
"Jack, calm down, if I wanted to hurt you, you would already be a writhing mass of pain of the floor. Seeing as you not, and I'm guessing you don't want to be, you will calm down and listen to me, right now."
Thinking about it, I figured she was right. I stopped were I was, but I didn't move any closer to her either.
"Well what do you want?" my voice was weak and a little shaky. I watched as she moved towards me.
"I just wanted to give you a little warning." A little warning? What was she talking about?
"A warning for wh-" before I could ask I felt my the telltale feeling of magic overcome my entire body. It felt like warm goose bumps dripping from the top of my head and to my toes. I could feel my muscles begin to relax and go slack. My legs gave out and I fell to my knees.
"Wh-Whats going on? What-er you doing." I slurred out as I fell to the ground, unable to move, I could feel the welcoming blackness of unconsciousness claw at my mind I tried to fight it off but it was getting harder.
"Don't worry about it Jackie, you'll find out."
And then I went unconscious.
A/N: Ok, so another chapter and a little cliffhanger. Tell me what you think. Also give me some advice for a new summary, what's something that accurately describes this story, but at the same time draws your attention, and makes you say
"Ya I want to read that!"
