1: People say live life as it is. Killing him is the only way I could.
What the hell is wrong with Filomena? Why didn't she listen to me? I stared into her lifeless face as I bent my head over her body. I had told her so many times not to transform and yet she kills herself for me. The girl that made me be me, and made me be not me was dead now. And I couldn't do anything about that. The prophecy was wrong. I believed in her so hard that she would be the girl to bring back my family. How will she if she's dead? How the hell will she?! My lightness, my darkness, my happiness, my sorrow, she was everything to me and now…she was gone.
"Deal with it Seth," Masumi said, laughing at me.
She was dead.
"Get over yourself. She's dead. She deserved it. And you thought the prophecy even existed."
That got my attention.
"What?" I asked him, not believing the words that were coming out of his mouth.
"Seth, had you forgotten? I'm powerful. I have many powers. One of those powers is to create illusions. So I messed with your mind to make illusions. You fell for being my son. You thought the prophecy of Filomena bringing back your family was true. Fool!"
He grabbed my hair and forced me to look into his face.
"I knew you had the power to destroy me. Being Future's descendant really is helpful. Of course, you didn't know that." He spat at me then let go of my hair.
I looked back down at Filomena.
"But my mom told me that I am your son," I said, feeling suddenly strong when I thought of my mom.
Masumi laughed, amused.
"You still didn't figure it out Seth?" He asked, booming with laughter. "The ghost that had been visiting you all these years wasn't your mom, boy. It was me."
My mind went blank. But somehow, I could still hear what Masumi was telling me.
"You humans are so gullible. Especially one with such a narrow mind."
"You consider yourself a god?" I yelled at him.
"More than that."
My thoughts drained everything out. I couldn't believe it. I had been talking to a ghost, sharing everyday memories with my own enemy since childhood. Had my mom ever been interested to know me? Was everything good that had happened to me just an illusion. Was Filomena an illusion? No, that was not possible. She was the only thing that was real. That was filled with energy. And even though, now that I knew Masumi was acting as my mother the whole time, she might not have my mom's personality, she was still a part of me.
Suddenly, everything made sense. The prophecy might be wrong, but that doesn't mean I can't bring my family back. That doesn't mean I can't kill Masumi. I know I can. I just need to find the strength. I closed my eyes and placed my head on Filomena's chest. I was wrong this whole time. I had thought she was more powerful with me. I had thought she was the rescuer. But no, she just interpreted things. I thought she had more power than me and had overestimated her but now I understood. She was my guide, I was the hero. I just had to find the power inside me.
All of a sudden, I felt strong. I got up and faced Masumi. The sky turned dark and I talked to him.
"You can't control me now Masumi. Look around you," I said.
"Everything looks the same," Masumi said.
"It's not going to be."
I snapped my fingers and the sky turned completely black.
"What is this?" Masumi asked, his voice full of fear.
"I just put you in another time dimension. You can't harm me in any way now, Masumi. I control you. Every atom in your body is now my slave. Therefore, your powers are a waste against me. Now my time manipulation power is double its strength. There is nothing to move and forget about telekinesis. There's nothing you can mind read cause you do not understand this dimension, I'm its owner and everything happens relative to me. Everything in this dimension is under my control to last single atom in your body. Your healing factor now has been diminished. And oh yeah I forgot. I learned one more trick. It seems that one day of work paid off."
Masumi fell down to his knees and yelled at me, "What is the meaning of this?"
I appeared in front of Masumi and cut him two times across his chest, forming and X shape.
"That scar on your chest is a remnant of the energy beam that I fired off. Filomena might've known how to manipulate others energies, but I've learned to manipulate mine to use it against you. This is just the beginning, the full potential of my energy beams are yet to be seen."
"What? You can't hurt me! I'm invincible. I'm Masumi. I killed Future!"
"Well then I suppose that I'll just give you the treat. This is the end of the road for you, dear father. You might have everything, Masumi, but I have one thing you don't have. Future's blood."
I aimed toward him using my finger and a beam shot out and hit him on the forehead. All the atoms in his body broke apart, killing him. I stared at the air in front of me and knew it was over. Masumi was disintegrated and couldn't ever exist again.
I stood there a few minutes, thinking over what I had just done then walked over to Filomena. I put one hand on top of her heart. A sudden heat spread through my body and reached my hand. A beam shot through my hand and went through her body, like an aura. Then, her heart started beating again.
Filomena's eyes fluttered open and she stared at me.
"Seth, am I in heaven?"
I laughed. "No, you aren't. You're back to life."
"You resurrected me." Filomena said.
I put my arms around her waist to help her up and kissed her.
"I thought you were going to leave me," I whispered.
"No, not at all."
Filomena stared past me at something else. I turned around to see what it was and saw a girl staring at us. She had brown hair and she looked somehow familiar. She smiled at us and said something I couldn't hear and then she was gone.
"Who was that?" Filomena asked me.
"I don't know," I said.
She stared at me and I decided to tease her.
"You know how I told you all my secrets? There's one I forgot to tell you."
Filomena frowned. "What?" She asked.
"I'm in love with the most beautiful girl in the Milky way galaxy."
She smiled and I kissed her again.
I had what I wanted. A family, a friend, a home, what I had always wanted. I had Filomena.
