KANSAS- May 15, 2023- Dylan’s Abduction Day
Dylan knew they were coming. He knew that one day his secret would get out and they would take him away from his mom. Today was going to be the day that his world ended.
From as far back as he could remember he could do things, special things that other people only dreamed about and that made him different than everyone. Dylan didn’t want to be different, he wanted to be normal and he wanted to stay with his mom. He loved her so much and he knew it had been tough on her keeping the farm going since he was born and his Father had disappeared. A Father he never knew and that his Mother never talked about.
Almost nine years had passed and until today no one knew what he could do. That stupid bully at school had ruined everything. He didn’t mean to use his power but he felt he had no choice. Dylan knew that life as he knew it would end but he also knew that he was tired, very tired, of being pushed around everyday.
He discovered Telekinesis almost by accident. He remembered being in his crib as a baby and crying for his bottle but no one came. He didn’t blame his mom, it was the middle of the night after all. His bottle sat on the change table just across his room and the thought of being so close to what he wanted yet being trapped in his crib was driving him crazy. He reached out his hand and focused all of his energy on his bottle and the bottle inexplicably tipped over and fell off the change table.
A few years had passed and he had learned to focus his energy. He remembered after he had moved to a big boy bed that he missed his dinosaur mobile and created his own with the toys in his room. A simple movement of his fingers caused a circle of his favorite toys to float in a circular motion in the space between his bed and the ceiling. At first only for a few minutes until they came crashing onto his bed, then hours.
As he grew Dylan developed new hobbies as his power strengthened. One of his favorite things to do was to go out to the barn and disassemble the old rusty tractor, spinning its parts around the old beams then reassemble it piece by piece. As his ninth birthday neared so did the feeling that something new was growing inside him. A new power that would make him even more different and as much as he fought it it continued to consume him. He was scared of what was happening to him but excited at the same time.
Today he defended himself. He couldn’t help it. He had had enough. As the bully raised his hand for the usual slap across his head, Dylan simply looked directly at him and then moved his eyes upward. As he did the bully slowly rose off the classroom floor and ascended to the ceiling. There dangling from the ceiling the bully began to cry.
As his classmates fell silent, Dylan set the bully down and ran from the classroom. When he arrived at his barn he sat alone, waiting for them to come.
A Black Escalade slowly drove up the dirt road to his house followed by a man on a black Ducati and his Mother came out onto the front porch to see what they wanted. Dylan calmly walked out of the barn towards his Mother.
“Don’t worry Mommy” he said, “they are here for me.”
His Mom looked puzzled as the man on the Ducati took off his helmet. “Hi Dylan, Ma’am. My name is Mr. Smith. We are here to protect you. Dylan, can and you and your mom come inside and talk to us for a bit?”
As the Escalade pulled out of the old dirt driveway Dylan and his mother cuddled in the backseat. “Sorry Mom, I guess I have some explaining to do” said Dylan.
“I guess you do” smiled his Mother.
