The Horror of the Second Scar

By dance0218

Other / Drama

Henri

(Henri: POV)

I was on my computer looking for any information on the other numbers or the Mogs when I received the call.

It was from John's school, they told me that there had been an accident during the spelling bee, that his pant had caught on fire. They kept saying it was just a freak accident but I knew better. Number 2 was dead.

I rushed to the hospital driving who know how high over the speed limit, before coming to a screeching halt in front of the hospital. When I reached the front desk and asked for where John was however, I was taken away by two large police officers and put in a small room.

I tried my best not to panic and stay calm. "Where is John" I asked. Before they could answer a strict looking woman walked in.

She was about 5'4 with dark brown hair. "Hello, my name is Melissa, how are you today". When I did not answer she continued. "I would like to ask you a few questions about your son John" she stated.

Now this got my attention. "Where is John, why will you not let me see him." I questioned. Wondering if the Mogs where behind all this.

"Well we found some very disturbing scars on his ankle." I nearly sighed in relief these people probably just where wondering how he received the scars.

Then Melissa continued. "Have you ever gotten mad, the stress of being an only father get to you, and you take that anger out on John?" She asked. Wait what? I could hardly believe what I was hearing.

Me, hurt John? If the situation was not so serious I might have laughed. "Now you listen very closely." "I would never hurt John ever." "Now unless you have any solid evidence agents me, which you don't seeing as I was not ever near John when the second scar appeared I would much appreciate it if you would take me to John now." I replied harshly.

Melissa stood there for a moment shocked at my outburst.

She knew I was right however, they had no solid evidence to prove that ever abused John and they had no choice but to take me to John. She motioned for me to follow her to John's room.

Finally, I was able to see John. I ran over and hugged him tightly.

After all these years of running he had become just like a son to me and I could not bare to lose him just like I lost my own child and wife on Lorin.

I was so relived to see him that I almost did not notice the woman sitting next to his bed.

"Hello, I am John's teacher, I was the one who brought him here." she kindly said.

I reached over and awkwardly shock her hand, as John was still holding me in a vice like grip as though afraid to let go.

" I am Henri, John's father." I replied." I know he kept asking for you." She said with a smile. There was an awkward silence. "Well it was nice meeting you Henri and I hope you get better soon John." She said before exiting the room."

"They killed two Henri." John said with a weak voice.

"Shh, I know, I know." I said gently while gently rubbing circles into his back. I do not know how long we stayed like that, me holding John while he cried silently into my chest.

I knew it was risking staying there for any amount of time. For fear that the Mogs will have caught word of the accident and our on their way.

But I just could not find it in my heart to leave just yet. Soon we could wait know longer and I went to find a doctor to discharge John. Then we were on our way back to the house.

By morning we were gone. On our way to a new destination, a new life, but I knew we would be fine as long as we still had each other.
