Island of Shattered Memories: EpiloguePercival leaned over and watched as Stanley punched numerous codes into the monitor. Each attempt resulted in a flashing red screen of death, much to Stanley’s dismay. Meanwhile, Wilfred and Johnny had their hands full with reestablishing communications.
“Anything?” Johnny asked his partners.
“Just the same notification again,” Stanley groaned, “What about you?”
“Ralph and the others have to make it,” Percival cried desperately, “They just have to.”
“I’m doing the best I can to reconnect with them,” Wilfred said, typing vigorously at his workstation, “Come on. Come on. Where are you?”
Wilfred’s monitor eventually gave in to the screen of death and the lab began flashing like a siren on the fritz. Phil came in from the hidden corridor and gasped at the unusual display. Stanley and Wilfred shuddered.
“Phil, we can explain—”
Phil ran past his partn
Island of Shattered Memories: Chapter 10Henry and company tended to the kidnappees in the foyer, but no matter how hard they tried, they couldn’t comfort the boys. While Bill and Harold resumed their efforts in being temporary guardians, Henry approached Abel, who sat away from the others and looked at his cousin with teary eyes. The two exchanged stares for a little while until Abel began to wail.
“Everything’s going to be all right,” Henry said, embracing his crying cousin, “I’ve been looking all over for you. I’m so glad you’re safe.”
“I didn’t mean to hurt anyone,” said Abel, “The big bad beastie made me do it. I—”
“We know. It’s not your fault. The others are trying their hardest to solve this problem. As soon as they’re finished, we’ll be back home soon.”
Henry smiled and led Abel to the elevator, as they descended to the lowest floor and entered the lab. The girls and I stood at the workstations with
Island of Shattered Memories: Chapter 9In the middle of what seemed like a peaceful slumber, Simon caught the traces of sunlight crawling down his face and regained consciousness. A screen of silver leaves surrounded a garden of white candle-shaped flowers, shielded by a stain glass dome that looked too ostentatious for the scenery. A group of butterflies danced around the flower beds, almost as if they were greeting their young visitor. Though generally a gentle and loving soul, Simon frowned at the strangely comfortable atmosphere and struggled to sit up, only to feel his arms tightly held behind his back. An unseen force lifted him and gently settled him onto one region of the garden marked by a mandala of white candle flowers, revealing the creepers that hobbled his legs. A vision of a lifeless blond boy in a black military uniform flashed into his mind.
His voice echoed through the area, but it wasn’t effective enough to disrupt the butterflies’ welcome dance. Footsteps could be heard n
Island of Shattered Memories: Chapter 8The professor issued a nod, as the twins knelt down and turned over Ralph’s prostrate body. A colorful choir stood behind the trio, accompanied by the duo of Percival and Johnny. The professor studied Ralph with his vambrace and nodded at the others, who took a few steps back. Johnny, however, came forward and began charging electricity from his palms.
Johnny clutched onto Ralph’s chest like a lamprey, causing Ralph to jolt back up with a screech. Standing before the young celebrity were all the other boys, who gave him the same bewildered look. Ralph tried to stand up, but a strain in his gut planted him back on his bottom.
“What are you all doing here?” he asked.
“We could ask you the same question,” said the professor.
“What has gotten into you?” Jack shouted angrily, “Gallivanting off while we had to do all the dirty work!”
The captain’s words stung Ralph harder than his sores. “Wher
