TYRESE LOMAX

(THE BAT SLAYER)

Episode 1, (Deadly Encounter), continued

BackCoverMy epiphany begins (as most prophets do), when I was at the age of eight. Though I was the youngest of three impoverished siblings, I somehow understood our state of destitute. I even understood why our parents left us so suddenly. As my brother and sister cried tears of sadness, I smiled at my mother as she kissed us goodbye. As we boarded the Greyhound bus, I somehow knew that we were not just leaving Knoxville, Tennessee, to live with our maternal Grandmother in Kansas City; we were leaving a safe normal world, to live in constant peril. Please, don’t misunderstand me, we all loved and adored our Grandma Brass but we were not so thrilled about living in the old house that she had recently inherited from her Great Grandfather, known as Packer Ned.

The house was built near what was called the west bottoms area, on a hill, BackCoveroverlooking the Kaw River. This house was well over a hundred fifty years old, and had survived numerous floods and twisters. Through years of repairs and modernizations, this house was still in good, livable condition. In fact, it was one of Kansas City’s most honored Historical Landmarks. My Great Great Great Great Uncle Thaddeus Brass built the house after the Emancipation Proclamation was signed. Uncle Thaddeus was one of the pioneer Buffalo soldiers that accumulated a fortune in cattle and helped make Kansas City famous for its strip steaks. Yes, this mansion was indeed a monument of human ingenuity and pride, but it looked scary. Also, it had the same problem that most old houses have, it creaked. Oh and one more thing, little did anyone know at that time, the many dark and dank hiding places around its roof, made it a sanctuary for BATS.

vampireAfter Grandma Brass paid the cab driver, our uncle Jake carted our luggage. We were finally there. Our new home. Our very own four story Victorian Mansion. I sensed the twinge of fear that my brother and sister felt as we stepped into the musky scented foyer. The interior of the house looked clean, but it was decorated with old traditional furniture. Even though I knew nothing of old European furniture styles I somehow felt eerily familiar to the decor. It seemed like, I had lived with this furniture before, but I was not at all familiar with the house.

TYRESE LOMAX

(THE BAT SLAYER)

Episode 1, (Deadly Encounter)

Bat1The summer on 2012 was a long hot perilous adventure for me and my family. It was a time of predestined horror and profound discovery. Not only for young juveniles, yearning to realize their place in the world, and how they could fit in and thrive. It was also a time for dark creatures from the pit, to express their evil instincts and expand their wicked agendas. I know of these evil creatures very well, for I have witnessed their destructive surge into the realm of mankind. I have seen their evil faces and smelled their fowl stench. I am Danielle of the Cherokiss Clan. I am the latest physical incarnate of an ancient tribe of spiritual scribes. My duty is to witness, document and pass on all relevant events pertaining to the dark creatures of the Canus-Chiropus Clan. These are creatures that have dwelled upon the Earth since the beginning of time.

Witch BatsThey take on the form of small flying rodents, (Bats). These Bats are not like other Bats that you may know of. They are not Vampires But they can, with great effort take on the form of a human. Their sole purpose is to feed on humans that have pure souls. My Clan believes that these Chiropus Bats are descendant from the very angels that were thrown out of Heaven. As sure as Satan refused to bow to Mankind, The Chiropus Bats have a strong hatred for human kind, especially those with strong hearts. It is my job to identify human beings that have the strongest of hearts. It has been magically revealed to me that somewhere, very near my destined place of existence, the next chosen one shall be revealed. He is the one with the strongest of human hearts. This part of my mission is already complete. I have now accumulated enough information to pass on to this Chosen one. He is a young boy now, but he will soon become a great warrior, that will keep the evil Chiropus bats from upsetting the balance between good and evil on Earth. Hopefully, the wisdom that I will pass on will help the new Bat Slayer in his quest to conquer the foes of darkness. Oh, I forgot to mention, the new Bat Slayer happens to be my Brother, Tyrese Lomax.

Bats 3At this time, Tyrese is just a 12 years old. Some would say that he is in his wonder years, because he seems to be growing an inch every month. He is a bit heavy for his height, but he has strong mussels. He has a natural cocky attitude that will surely get out of hand by the time he grows to become an adult Champion, yet he is humble and respectful of his elders. Right now, Tyrese is a five foot tall light skinned African American. All of my family members have caramel colored skin, including myself. It helps give us our beautiful outwards appearance. Speaking of beauty, my sister Deja is also exceptionally beautiful in spirit. She has the kindest heart that I have ever known. This frightens me, for I know that such a pure heart often attracts Chiropus Bats. In fact, this was the subject of my calling.
