I am an atoner. I seek forgiveness. I am a ghost...
"Are they ready?" A soft voice spoke across the table. The location was dark, so the woman couldn't be seen, or could the man she was talking to. "I mean, they don't seem to be ready. Especially the eldest. He just looks at me with those vacant eyes. He's been that way ever since I can remember. The younger ones, they can smile, laugh, nod, and express emotions, so it really does worry me."
"Are you sure it's not just an act of defiance, or arrogance?" The man asked, a tone of concern in his voice.
"I'm positive. Sir, there's just no emotion in him at all. I feel like you could tell him that we'd kill all the others, and he'd just stare. It's almost as if he's gone dumb in the head, sir. I apologize, but as the eldest, isn't his job to be the most mature, the smartest? I think it's kind of arrested development for all the other kids too. Not once have they tried to escape. They've been waiting on him to regain his self back."
"We can't postpone this because of one kid. We've worked on this for years now." The man said.
"Sir, my concern is that it won't work on him. Then we'd be out one of the signs, and we can't have that happen." the woman said as she tensed up a bit. All this stress was getting to her lately.
"We have a deadline." The man said with a firm tone. "We will force the remaining sign to work with him, legend be damned. Get me the youngest. After that, go and try to talk to the kid. You have thirty minutes."
"Yes sir." The woman said, getting up from her chair and navigating to the end of the house. She pulled a switch and a door swiveled open. She traversed down a long set of stairs and picked up the youngest child, no more than three years old. "It's time!" She announced in a cheery voice. Half the kids wailed, and half giggled. The only one who expressed no emotion was, no surprise, the eldest. He didn't even glance up as the woman walked back up the stairs.
"I've brought the youngest." She said as she sat the kid down.
"Good, good." The man said, rubbing his hands together as he looked at the thirteen stones that lay across the table. "I'll wait for you. Talk to that stubborn kid."
"Right away sir." She said as she began to walk back toward the secret room. She again went down the flight of stairs and stood across the eldest. AFter a coouple of seconds, he finally loked up at her, but didn't say a word. "Are you aware you'll be thrust out into the world for a month, maybe even a year, and you'll be on your own? You won't even see the others." She looked at the boy, but saw no signs of fear. Just another blank expression. "I don't get it. There's no compassion for these people? Do you not even care? All this time you've been here, you haven't talked, smiled, or anything. I know you aren't deaf, because you respond to play time with your youngers. You know what I'm saying, so what is it? What causes you to act like this?" Again, nothing in his eyes. The woman sighed and threw her hands up into the air. "Fine! I tried!" She said as she walked back up the stairs and back toward the table.
"No sir. We'll just have to risk it."
The kid looked up at the woman, and across to the man. The man started to pick up a rock, but quickly moved his hand away before he could touch it, pain briefly flaring across his face.
"Hey there buddy. Would you like a rock? I know how you kids are with pet rocks and the like. Why, you can even put some googley-eyes on it." The man said as he gestured. "I knw for a fact one of them is calling out to you." He continued as the kid scanned each rock. Finally, he settled on one and picked it up. A brief flash of light came from the stone, and the boy was mesmerized, A dark shadow appeared on his hand. It briefly flashed "healer" Before it changed into the sign of Pisces. The kid lookeed at it in interest before jumping off and playing with his rock in the corner.
And it went like that for eleven other kids, from youngest to oldest. Each flashed a word before the sign formed, and each kid moved to a corner of the house. Finally, only one stone was left.
"Somehow, I saw this coming." The man said with a sigh. "Bring him in."
The oldest was brought in, his eyes still blank.
"You know kid, you're interresting. But I can see through that. You know how to feel, you're just a master of manipulating. I'm actually quite proud you get this stone. None of the others fit you." The man said before the oldest could sit down. He didn't even bother sitting though. He just picked up the only remaining stone. A flash of light, and the word "thief" was brought into his forhead. It changed into the sign of Serpentariu, that of a snake wrapped around a staff. The snake almost looked like it was whispering.
Suddenly, the boy began to smile. The woman was overjoyed, but quickly noticed something amiss. "Let's have some fun." The boy said before he leapt over the table and kicked the man in the face. The man fell backwards and began to howl.
"GET HIM!" He ordered to the others, who just stood there. "NOW!"
"I've got a better idea." said the eldest with a grin. "Get out." He said as he grabbed his stone and threw it at the door, which was directly behind the man. The stone seemed to glow green for a second, then the door changed into a pile of snakes, all of which rushed on top of the man. While the man was occupied, some of the older kids picked up the younger ones, and all thirteen of them sprinted out the doorway and ran as far as they could. Never once did they look back, but they heard the man shout with anger.
"YOU CAN'T RUN! I'LL BE ABLE TO FIND YOU, WHEREVER YOU GO!"
The oldest smirked. "Yeah, and I'll dye my hair pink." The comment drew fits of giggles from the thirteen. They kept on running though, not stopping until they were miles and miles away.
