A New Era
Ch.2“Learn from yesterday, Live for today, hope for tomorrow.”
That afternoon Ira with Evan (her brother) came at our place. Ira is and has forever been my bestie…And her Brother Evan is Naomi’s best friend, he is about of Naomi’s age (but he acts more mature!) When they came at our place we all went to my bedroom and we played all the possible games we could. I also told them about the history Dad told us. Ira seemed very surprised but Evan was calmer. Mr. and Mrs. Parker were also there. They were talking to mom and dad, Or rather whispering to them. Mom, dad Mrs. and Mr. Parker seemed very much tensed. I couldn’t help noticing their tensed faces.
“Hey!! It’s your turn, are you…sleeping?” Naomi shouted.
“Oh! Yeah…I’m sorry, I got distracted.”
“You’re always distracted, nothing new”
Ira also noticed mom-dad and others faces as she was also staring at them.
“Do you know what is it about?” I finally asked her.
“I don’t know…I mean today mom and dad told us that, they had something important to discuss with your parents, so they had to meet your parents, we could also come along and play with you, if we wanted, we came along with them. I wonder what the matter is.”
Then mom-dad looked at all of us for a second and called Naomi and Evan. When they left, Ira and I started to observe them. They were telling them both something. Naomi and Evan’s expression suddenly changed. They also joined the “tensed group”
“Let’s go and see what the matter is.” Suggested Ira.
It was a good Idea. We both went to see what the matter was.
“Hi mom! What’s up?” Ira asked.
“Nothing hon. Go and play. Don’t you see elders are talking here?” Mrs. Parker replied politely.
“If elders are talking why Naomi is here?” I said jokingly.
I anticipated a big argument, but to my surprise she remained quite! Ira and I waited for some seconds to try to hear what were they talking about but they just gave us “that look” which said “Get lost!” so we retraced our steps back to my room. But I walked slowly so I could hear something but the words which I heard were only “Mayor…I knew this would happen…so what now?” When I came back I told Ira about what I just heard. She thought for a moment and said,
“Mayor…so maybe it is related to our world…Esse Novum?” (There is
only one mayor for whole EN)
Soon it was time for the lunch. I didn’t even realize how time passed so quickly! Everyone ate lunch in silence which was quite creepy… After the lunch, dad switched on the Solar-Tele and we all started watching news. This was not how I wanted my weekend to be, full of mysteries… The first thing that came up in the news channel was “ALERT!!”
