Jesslyn awoke shaking and breathing as if she had been under water. She saw a figure sitting near her, with blurred vision she scurried to get away- before she could he had taken hold of her. When hearing his calm voice she settled into Brenden’s chest. He was home and it was near sundown from what she could see through the blinds of her window. He seemed calm but she could see fear and panic in his eyes. What had happened, her memory was blurry. Brenden offered her water and asked her to stay in the bed. Before she could ask what happened Brenden quieted her. He told her everything is about to change. The world that she thinks she knows doesn’t truly exist. In confusion Jesslyn asked what he meant, what is happening. Brenden said nothing. Maybe she had misheard him.
He fixed her something to eat and drink and helped her make sure she regained her energy. She could only thank God that Jestin was not there during this dangerous fiasco. Once her food was down and all components of the day came flooding back her eyes welled with tears. She asked Brenden what happened to the assailant? She expected to hear him say that he ran, or was chased away, she expected to hear that the police were now involved and that they are looking for him. The response she received was concerning to say the least.
Brenden tell me where is the person that was in the house? Brenden stood to his feet, he said one only two words…It’s time.
Jesslyn couldn’t imagine what it is that he meant. He could not have had anything to do with this fiasco, he could not have set this up, fear crept in like closing walls. What did he mean it’s time. Suddenly he turned around and it was as if he was someone else. It was like his mind was possessed. He moved like lighting, he even had a glow about his skin that was unearthly. Startled Jesslyn jumped out of the bed and to her feet. Before she could open her mouth he was in her face snarling at her. He was like an animal. She could not imagine words to say. He softened his temper and turned his back to her, upon turning again he seemed to be himself.
He did not move towards her as her fear shook her body. He assured her he would not harm her, but her life was not as it seemed. He warned her that the information he would share with her would break her core open with hurt, but if she trusts him She will be fine.
Jesslyn could only believe that she was still sleeping. This was a dream and for some unforeseen reason she could not wake up. Brenden quickly interjected- we don’t have much time. They are coming for you, I can only protect you for so long. Jesslyn jumped to her feet screaming, what the hell are you talking about!
Brenden stated what I am about to say will hurt you, however, you must know the truth. I was assigned to you as a protective detail. Do you remember when we met? Yes..Jesslyn responded. That was no coincidence- Before we met you took a trip to Nigeria. You were a well respected engineer in the time exploration community at the University of Scientific and Social study in Nigeria. You developed an elixir that gives people speed and strength that not only allows them to be lethal but allows them to cross dimensions. Its been a steady work and practice for the past two years.
During your research there was an explosion that caused you to lose your memory. Many people want that research and the secrets to your formula, during the explosion your paperwork was destroyed. Those of us given the elixir before hand received permanent effects and will not lose our powers, they have only increased. The thing is with no paperwork and remedy for some of the growing effects those in charge want you instead.
Jesslyn had no words. She looked at Brenden and before she knew it she slapped him in the face. She felt that he was lying and toying with her mind and her head. He understood her hostility. He asked her do you dream of science? Do you dream of an explosion in a lab? Do you dream of living a life before this and you seem unfulfilled? She could only answer Yes. This is memory of who you were before.
She asked Brenden, how is this possible, this seems crazy? This is not my life!! Who assigned you? Jesslyn we don’t have time. If he found us then that means more is to come. he jumped worlds to find us, within 48 hrs we will be swarming with seekers. She couldn’t believe her ears. She felt like a crazy woman. She asked again, who assigned you- how can I trust you, you are my husband, why is this being revealed now?
Brenden responded, there is more info that I can give you but we must go? Where! she screamed. Brenden snarled, he began to glow in his anger, before she knew it she was in the air moving at the speed of light. Once stopped they had landed in-front of AZA hotel. Where are we Brenden? He returned to his normal self and told her the worst truth she could have heard that day. We are here to see my Boss, My partner, and my Wife AZA. With no further words he took her up and inside at the speed of light. Shock hit Jesslyn in a violent wave, her body went stiff and her mind felt as if it was shattering like glass. Did he say wife?
