“Is he a businessman like you?”
“How is his health?”
“What is his name?”
“Did someone send me here?”
Jackson was now asking lots of questions as Jackson and Kevin walked toward the 2-mile road. Kevin had told him that his house was near the big oak tree on his map app on his iPhone.
However, he did not tell him anything about his uncle because of a surprise that his uncle had. Kevin had thought Jackson would be very overwhelmed when he found out about how important his family was and the things that was at stake if he did not succeed.
Finally, Jackson said, “Is there a reason why I am here?”
Kevin replied firmly, “Your family is so important to the fate of the world. It is one of the richest families of all.”
Jackson said back, “So why am I here? Why am I not back at my mom’s house?
Kevin replied, “Your parents have told me and your uncle now is the time. Also, we have arrived.”
His uncle’s house looked big as a mansion, and it was rather not what Jackson was thinking of, despite Kevin telling him how rich his family was. It seemed to be taller than the Eifel Tower.
Kevin had pressed the doorbell. “Ding dong,” they had heard. But nobody answered. They had waited, and waited, for one, two, three, four, and even five minutes until someone opened the door. He thought, “Have I seen him before?” He looked back throughout his lifetime. Was it the time he met that guy was at Grandma’s house?
His uncle said, “Hello, Jackson. It has been 10 years and 6 months since we met.”
Jackson was stunned. He never remembered the time that his uncle visited him, for only one single time.
He asked, “How do you know this?”
His uncle responded, “Our family has the smartest people in history. We know how to read minds in less than a second, and we have dead-on accuracy. We carry on that trait throughout the family, and you are the next to claim it.”
Jackson thought of all those times he outsmarted people. In his first soccer game he played, he scored 4 goals, which was all their goals. He was unbeaten in all the board games his family had. He also outsmarted a bully to do what he wanted without giving up anything (He made the bully give his money back to every person he pick pocketed).
After the moment of silence had ended, his uncle said, “Kevin here is your grandmother’s sister’s son. He also got the trait as well as you.
Kevin responded back, “I have a shrewd plan to become the CEO of Amazon in less than a day. It’s perfect. I first tell my boss—“
He stopped because someone busted the door out. Who was this?
His uncle immediately responded. He said, “Run to the basement!”
They ran to the basement speeding towards the door, and the door expanded in sight. Was Jackson looking at an optical illusion?
Kevin hollered at Jackson, “Just get inside!”
He immediately went inside the basement. He immediately recognized the breathing that was upstairs. It was his worst enemy, Madeline Vanessa.
“I know who that is. That is Madeline Vanessa, my worst enemy.”
His uncle yelled out, “What?”
“She competes with me all the time, although the fact that I’m smart makes her the total opposite of me. She doesn’t think before she acts. That’s why we were able to get out easily. I’ll go up,” said Jackson.
He went up. He opened the door.
“Hello, my worst enemy,” Jackson said.
Madeline hollered back, “You missed a day of school! You missed the best lesson of the year!”
But he had remembered, it was still 8 AM. There was no chance that school was over at this time. His school was exactly 560 miles, 163 yards, and 3 inches away from his real house, but he has a teleportation device that leads him to his school in Sacramento in just a second. So she had missed school, mostly because she’s the one who hated it.
“Please get out, or else I’m telling the principal you missed school unexcused with my evidence,” Jackson said.
Right then, “SNAP!” He took a picture of her.
Madeline scowled, “You won’t get away with this.”
She slammed the front door and she walked the direction back to school. He made a mental note to write a school excuse note later.
Jackson called down the basement, “It’s fine! You can get up!”
After they had all got up, they had breakfast with some cereal his uncle invented. It was full of fluoride, which would keep your teeth clean. It was really delicious. He was feeling comfortable.
Kevin was not sure about something. Did he say Vanessa was Madeline’s last name? The Vanessas were a very dangerous family. What could happen? If there was the antidote to the serum they had…
The Vanessas had once taken the serum, to make them rich. They changed the fate of the world. If there was an antidote… But where would the ingredients be?
