Something wasn’t right. I couldn’t put my finger on it just a feeling. I glanced at Dragon to see him looking at me.
“What’s wrong?” He asked.
“Who you sell the garage too?” I asked.
“Malone. I used the money to buy the ride from his rival. What’s on your mind?”
“Nothing. Just a bad feeling. How far can you see ahead of the road to the town?”
Dragon looked ahead and stared. “Stop the crusier”
I brought the cruiser to a dead stop. Dragon got out and narrowed his eyes ahead. I couldn’t see what he did but I knew there was trouble. He looked behind us and grimanced.
“Who is it? Malone.” I asked.
Dragon pointed back to the city. “Malone and his crew will be here in an hour. But, the bigger problem is ahead of us. Frost and her groupies are coming up in front us.
“In front of us? What about….the town is gone isn’t it?”
“Yes. It appears Malone is working with them. I-I made a mistake going to him. I didn’t think he would have the balls to turn against me.. We’re caught in the middle. Looks like I’ll have to rush my plans ahead of schedule.”
I stared at him. “What are you going to do?”
Dragon stared at me. “You changed my mind on humans. You drew me out of watching life go by. I don’t intend to lose you just yet. It’s risky but I can make a place for you and the girls to be free of the cycle of war and madness it won’t be a easy place to live and you’ll be short on space but it will be a fresh start.” He said.
“What’s the catch?” I asked.
Dragon smiled at me and snapped his fingers. I saw a small map of the area. The map flipped and I saw it as a giant land mass floating in….space.
“What the hell is it?”
“It’s a short cut solution to making a world within this deminsion. It’s a mini realm. A incomplete dream realm within this universe over time it will become something else. The catch is once you enter my dream you won’t able to leave or return to this world. You and your descendants and whoever else that enters my dream will be trapped in my dream realm forever. What you make of that world will be your own invention to your growth or destruction. The choice is yours.”
“What do you need me to do?” I asked him.
“Drive. I’ll handle Frost and Malone. But I need you to mark out the realm. It has to be completed before the day is done. I super charged your ride so you can get it done in a hurry.” He said and then turned as Frost and her people appeared over the hill. “Follow the light. I’ll see you on the otherside Pops.”
Dragon’s form changed again.
“Go on Pops. I’ll be alright. When you reach the town keep the light on for me at the house. I might be a little late.”
I ran back to the cruiser got into the driver’s seat of the cruiser and took off. The kids were up wide eyed and staring at the beam of light I was following.
“Where are we going, Daddy?” Sunny Rain asked.
“What’s that light thing leading us to?” Newark asked.
I smiled. “A much better place then the one we’re leaving behind.”
“Where’s big brother Dragon?” Sunny Rain asked.
I frowned shaking my head. I glance out my rearview window and saw him already into a battle with two of his siblings. They were giving him a tough fight but he wasn’t backing down.
“He’s taking care of some business he’ll meet us on the other side at the new house.”
