THE INVINCIBLE HUNTERS EPISODE 9
Jack rushed out from the police station that night and headed back to Jennifer’s house. The ray of light coming from the headlight of his car reflected on Jennifer’s window. Before he could reach their door, Jennifer came out without the seed. She had left it in the room with Lana.
“Jack, what are u still doing here?” Jennifer asked.
Jack dragged her by the hand to his car without providing an answer to the question. “There is a new development” he began. “I think the hunters aren’t the only one who want the seed, even the police”
“The police?” Jennifer slid her hair
voraciously. “Why would they want it?”
“They want to destroy it! According to my uncle, if the seed isn’t destroyed completely, Zumga city will be experiencing war with the hunters generation to generation” Jack paused. He could see Jennifer looking confused. So he gently held her two hands. “What do u think? Are you willing to give the seed out to be destroyed coz I’ve not told my uncle where you are”
“Jack, i don’t know what to do” Jennifer began. “The seed is possessing me. I think anybody who wants to take it or destroy it will first kill me coz I’m developing a strong love for it that i can’t even allow anyone to harm it”
“If that’s what you want, I’ll help and protect you”
“Yes, i may not have superpowers but I’ll do my best to protect you” Both stared at each other. They were obviously falling in love but when Jennifer remembered Karina, she withdrew her hands from Jack’s and slid her hair again.
“I have to go in,side now” she said then stepped backward.
“Okay then, good night” Jack replied. He entered into his car and drove off.
Jennifer returned to her room but
couldn’t believe what she saw. She saw Lana standing at the window with the seed in her hand! “Lana?” she called.
Lana turned with a smile and stretched the seed to her saying, “You can have it”
Jennifer amazingly took it. “How did you take it?” she asked.
“I just took it from the bed”
“It didn’t hurt you? I mean didn’t you see fire?”
“Come here” Jennifer hugged her
thinking critically why the seed rejected others but accepted Lana.
At Hannah’s resident, she met her
grandmother in the room. The room was quite dim created by a flame of white candle. Vena laid face-up on her bed with hands closed on her stomach. Though her eyes were closed but she noticed Hannah’s presence at the door.
“I just killed two invincible hunters at Jane’s house” Hannah broke the silence.
“So soon?” Vena opened her eyes. “Guess the war will start sooner than i thought” she added.
“Granny?” Hannah stepped forward and the sound of her shoes echoed the room. “I think the seed gives life, right?”
“Yes” Vena replied.
“If it’s in your possession, you’ll become immortal”
“Immortal? You mean Jane isn’t gonna die because the seed is in her possession?”
“Exactly” Vena closed her eyes again while Hannah went deep in thought thinking about how she would get the seed from Jennifer. As a witch, the grandmother understood what she was thinking and said, “Never you try that”
“Try what, granny?” Hannah asked.
“Never try what u are thinking” Vena replied while Hannah walked out angrily.
All those who knew about the seed that night had a stupefying solemn which made them to stay awake in the night. Uncle Ben walked around his sittingroom with a cup of alcoholic drink in his hand. All he could think of was the
encounter he had with Jack.
On the other hand, Frank was still awake too. One could see him before his lap top, on his bed looking very serious. Obviously, he was still making a research about the seed.
Furthermore, Karina wasn’t seriously thinking about the seed but Jack. She wore only underwears with one of her legs raised on the bed. She could remember how she started with Jack. There was no formal relationsh¡p proposal between them but she loved and became part of his life.
Finally, As Jack thought of Jennifer’s situation, so as Randy was admiring her beauty too.
THE NEXT MORNING
Jennifer jerked awake by the sound of her cell phone. She wore a white transparent pyjamas. One could see her p-nt clearly as she walked to the window and opened it. She saw cars running speedily on the road. Suddenly, a child ran to the middle of the road to pick her balloon. Meanwhile, a trailer was coming with a speed! People and the child’s parents shouted and ran to save her but the obstruction of other moving cars couldn’t let them.
“Oh, my God!” Jennifer exclaimed and ran out with the pyjamas. There was no way the child could have been saved and the driver of the trailer had matched brake forcefully thereby making the trailer to somersault.
“No!” Jennifer shouted. She felt a power within her so she stretched her hand at the child. Immediately, the child landed in her arms then everybody’s eyes went to her even her parents who came outside.
