"We have to find Nick!" I shouted in Dylan's ear at 4 in the morning.
"What? Why?" He asked turning on the light. Guess who got Fang's room.
"I had a dream. We need to find Nick. He hasn't gone back!" I shouted again. I explained about the dreams I've been having and he agreed to help me find him. Although I left out the main part that the guy on the island was his son. I couldn't tell him that.
"How are we going to find him though? We have no idea where he went." Dylan reminded me. That was the problem. I sat on the bed and thought. If I was Nick, where would I go?
Then it occured to me that he must be someplace near Fang. I would get Angel to call Fang and get him to tell us where he is and then we can go looking for Nick. But the thing that bothered me so much was the fact that if Nick didn't know that his 'brother' was going to be here aswell, why would he stick around. Maybe I was wrong. Maybe I was just going crazy from loosing Fang again.
Nick would want his parents to be together no matter what. If I was him, I would try and stop all the people that are stopping me and Fang getting together. But where would he start?
I began searching on the net for any scientific companies that might have anything to do with the attack on Fang and Me. It took me a long time to find even one that looked like it could be responsible. Plus, it was based in Miami. They have schools all over the bloody world. I copied down the address and placed it in my pocket.
"Time for a field trip." I said to Dylan and he insisted he came with me. I told him he needed to stay behind and cover for me. He eventually agreed.
It would have been easier to get Fang to teleport me over to Miami, but I didn't want to bother him. Even if it was to save his life.
I was doing pretty good for time when I felt like I was being watched. I turned to look behind me but saw nothing. Below there was nothing but ocean.
I looked above me and all that was there was stars. I felt a sudden chill down my spine and flew faster than before. I checked behind me once more to be safe and turned back to see something flying straight for me. The wing span was huge, larger than mine and it was coming in at quite a speed. Nick doesn't use wings I reminded myself.
As the flying object drew closer, I noticed who it was. I blinked several times wondering if my eyes were decieving me. It was Fang.
"Fang! You scared the hell out of me! What are you doing here?" I yelled hugging him.
"Angel told me you wanted me. Said it was important." He replied.
"She did? But why fly?" I asked.
"Thinking of what to say." He smiled. I explained the reason behind me being 5000 feet above the sea in search for Nick. I didn't tell him either about Dylan's son. I couldn't bare to see his face.
"Okay so you think Nick is...In Miami?" He said wrapping his head around what was going on.
"I believe so. I don't know anywhere else he could be. It's worth a try is it not?" I said and he nodded. He grabbed my hand and teleported us to the nearest place to the school.
"What if he's not here? What then?" Fang asked putting suspicion in my mind.
"He has to be." I sighed. "He's our son. If we can't find him, who can we find?" He smiled at me as we walked towards a wired fence.
"Hey!" Someone shouted at Fang and Me startling us. Damn caught.
"What you two doing here?" They said and we turned around to see the blonde haired guy from my dream. Great.
"Who are you?" Fang asked him.
"Not your friend let me assure you." He replied. It reminded me when Nick had told Dylan he wasn't his friend. I guess they have something in common after all.
"What you want from us?" I asked. I knew that was probably a stupid question but still.
"If your looking for your beloved son, he isn't here. I made sure of that." He grinned.
"What have you done to him!" Fang snapped.
"He's safe. For now anyway. Why do you want him?" He asked looking carefully at Fang.
"I think he deserves to know that your interfearing with his parents." I said trying not to reveal who he was. I hoped he didn't say anything to Fang.
"He knows! But he isn't going to be able to do anything about it. Lets just say, I've clipped his wings. He isn't going anywhere." He laughed.
"Your evil!" I shouted at him, hitting him in the face.
"Now that is no way to treat your son is it." He smirked. Fang looked at me quickly in shock.
"Fang. Don't listen to him. He will try anything to get between us." I said hoping Fang wouldn't loose it and leave me here with Him.
"Your trash!" Fang spat disappearing from sight and re-appearing behind him knocking him to the floor.
I cast out my senses to feel if Nick was anywhere nearby. I felt something in the distance and led Fang towards it.
"I feel it too. You think that's him? What if it's a trap?" He said.
"Only one way to find out then." I said charging straight towards the life force. It must be him. It had to be.
As we got closer I became more and more sure it was Nick. Fang managed to get us inside and we found him strapped in chains and passed out on the floor.
"Poor guy. What's he done to him." Fang said sitting him up.
"At least he's still alive. But we don't have long. Lets get him out of here." I said and Fang teleported us back to the house. Within a few moments of coming back he began to stir.
"What happened?" He asked rubbing his head. I broke the chains around him and told him we needed his help.
"Fang's in danger and only you can help us..." I began.
"I know. I didn't want to say anything before. I thought you might go beserk. Plus I thought I could handle it. Which I can." He stated. He pulled himself up and began hopping around on one leg. "Injured my leg he did. Sneaky bastard." Nick laughed.
"How are we going to stop him?" I asked.
"I can stop him, don't worry." He assured us. Although he didn't look as though he was in a fit state to do anything.
"Does he have a certain weakness? Is he afraid of anything? Anyone?" Fang asked Nick helping him to sit in a chair.
"There's only one person that I know of that he will listen to. That's his father."Nick said holding his leg.
"Great. So wefind this guys father and then get him to tell him to leave us alone. Problem solved." Dylan said. I looked at Nick who had the same look on his face as I did. How was I going to tell Fang?
"I have an idea. Why don'y you two stay here where it's safe and I take Dylan to kick this guys butt back to where he came from?"Nick said giving me a wink.
"Sounds good to me." Dylan agreed and Fang nodded standing by my side. Dylan didn't like it but he accompanied Nick anyways, which was clever thinking on his behalf.
We waited for what seemed like an eternity until Dylan came back, but without Nick. As soon as he came in, he looked at me, telling me with his eyes that he knew.
"Where is Nick?" I asked.
"He went back. It was the only way to take the other guy with him. He wasn't pleased to go back either." Dylan said giving me an eyeful.
"So...he's gone. not coming back." Fang asked.
"Yeah at least for now." Dylan said looking at me again, but this time smiling so no one would think it suspicious. Fang told me he needed to get back to his flock, again, and kissed me goodbye before he started to leave. I followed him out onto the porch and gave him a proper kiss goodbye.
"Seems like we can't stay away from each other. No matter what happens." Fang laughed.
"No guess not."I smiled not letting go of his hand.
"Max...I." Fang began but I shushed him by smashing my mouth silently to his. I felt someone from inside the house watching us, but at that moment I didn't care. I just wanted to be with Fang and enjoy being with him like this. It wasn't until he had completely vanished from the porch that I became very dizzy, almost as though I were high and hullucinating, that I fell uncontrolably to the floor and blacked out. I heard voices shouting at me, calling me name but I couldn't tell from whom they came from. I couldn't move my body at all and I could bearly see or hear. It was like I was having some sort of seizure or heart attack.
Just when I thought it was starting to clear, a sharp pain erupted within me, like a brain attack, except from inside my body and I would have killed to make it stop. I tried calling out to Fang and opening my eyes more to see who was around me. I felt hands on me trying to sit me up,trying to move me into a more comfortable position. Amoungst those hands, I could feel every one of my flocks. But I didn't feel Fang's.
