CHAPTER TWO: The Lonely Boy
I looked out the windows of the car as my father drove telling me about his work as a scientist, though I couldnt understand most of what had to do being I was only 12 years old it still made him happy to know I was listening and I made me happy we got to bond. He hardly ever took me with him to his job unless it was necessary and ever since mom had passed we'd both been distant from eachother. Needless to say, it was better to bond with my dad than to come back after school to a quiet, soundless and uncomforting home with no one there.
My dad didnt seem to notice as I shivered and pressed a small button to the side to close the window, it was cool tonight and I was so excited to spend time with him at his job i'd forgotten to bring a jacket. I listened as he talked about always wondering of the unexplainable like extraterrestrials, ghouls and spirits and how happy he was to be able to have a job where he could explore for such species and bring evidence of their existance back to be studied. I simple chuckled and nodded, I may have been 12 but I was'nt easily fooled, like superheroes I didnt believe monsters, to me it was like believing in the tooth fairy or Santa Clause.
We drove abit longer and Ieventually began to fall asleep laying my head against the window seal, I was nearly unconcicous when I head my dad shriek and the car came to a jerking stop. My body jerked forward and back against the car seat violently, I wasnt hurt but I turned to my dad in surprise and saw the look of astonishment and curiousity on his face.
"What is is it dad? Whats going on?"I asked him looking out the front window following his gaze when off in the distance I spotted an object out out in the fields. It had created a large crater in the field and appeared to be smoking and badly damaged.My father finally looked over at my=]e seeing the shaken look on my face and spoke"Son stay here, this could be a big discovery or a giant threat and I dont want you getting hurt." I barely had a moment to speak as he exitted the car with a flashlight and walked over to where the object was.
"No way..it could'nt be." I said to myself watching my dad get closer tio the object, I started getting worried, what if it was it could still be alive. I exited the car slowly and walked to the front of the car shivering more remembering the cool air, my head perked up as I heard my dad call to me. I walked closer and he got louder."Darwin, bring me the crowbar from the backseat! I think there is something in here!"
I shook my head and ran to get the crowbar from the backseat of the car and carried it to my father with worried eyes."Dad, I dont think we should be doing this, shouldnt we..you know wait for someone to come first?" He chuckled and patted my head taking the crowbar from me. "Darwin, this is a huge find, this could be the first bit of solid evidence we could have to discovering and proving the existence of aliens, and we get the first look! You should be excited!" True this was his lifes work I still felt skeptical, so I backed away abit as he pushed the crowbar under the glass of the object and jerked it open.
It opened slowly and my father looked inside with a surprised look on his face and smiled widely." Son, I believe we've found an alien..a real live alien!" He shrieked, I only looked briefly but looked away when the alien began to heavily and cough. Startled my father leaned in closer and I only watched with worry for his well-being. My father suddenly gasped and fell backward as the creature jumped from its ship and now stood on the outside of the pod observing its surroundings.
I took the chance to look at the strange creature, I was so colorful with yellow-orange skin that reflected like scales and long forest green hair that came to its shoulders and a strange shapely face with..beautiful blue eyes. The moment I thought this the creature looked over towards me, I threw out my arms showing I meant no harm and spoke. "Please don't attack, I am not a threat...I come in peace?" I said nervously and the being tilted its head to the side, it obviously had no idea what I was saying to it.
I came closer with my hands outstretched towards it, and gave a gentle smile as it started to bring its hand closer to mine. Ipeeked off to the side and my father just stood there amazed at what was going on, he had picked himself up and looked alert in case the creature decided to attack.
When our hands finally touched I felt a small spark run through me, and gripped it hand tighter when I saw its sad expression. I nodded and smiled again speaking softly and happily. "You should'nt be sad, you're safe now, in fact, you never have to be sad again." I brought my hand up and the creature flinched as I shook it hands gently."My name is Darwin, and I can tell were going to be best friends!"
The creature tilted it head again still confused but I only smile in return, it was so cute and happened to be my height."Be careful Darwin, it might hurt you." He said getting closer and putting a hand on my shoulder. "I doubt that dad, just look, shes just scared and confused. We should help her." I smiled again as she didnt take her eyes off of me."Her? Darwin we have no idea what it is or what its capable of. We need to get it to the lab to be examined first before we decide on anything." He said and nudged me toward the car, I followed and walked slowly gently tugging the creature along, it looked scared but it didnt let go.
I sat in the back with creature, it examined the car and surveyed it like a small curious child, I laughed and my father began driving checking the mirror every once a while to make sure I was safe. It was still holding my hand and rested its head against the car seat. I smiled and got an idea turning to my dad."Dad can we name it?" Dad looked at me strangely."But we still dont know what it is." I looked the creature over again and turned back to dad."I think its a girl, its pretty like a girl, and I have the perfect name!"
Dad sighed but smiled lightly." Alright, what did you have in mind?"" Well in honor of her being your first alien and us being new best friends, how about we name her Abegail, you know after mom?" I looked at him judging his expression, he seemed shocked but then thought deeply about it."I see...I suppose that would be special..Abegail it is then." I smiled wider and looked over at Abegail who looked at me strangely."You hear that? Your name is Abegail now, do you like it?" Abegail looked away but then smiled abit and I laughed. "You like it! Abegail it is then."
