Thundery Flames

4. He\'s here...


”Master, we found her ”


The next day Zairo already got up as early as 4:30 in the morning ready to go for their trip or maybe he was more excited about the chicken. Either way, he was already up and ready to go.

Kiara already packed the essentials needed for the trip the previous night so when she got up she just had to bathe Zai and herself and soon they were ready to hit the road. They left the house and headed for the subway.

Zairo didn really like taking trains he says it sometimes felt like a lot of bad eyes were watching him so they rarely followed the subway, but it was the fastest route to get to where they were headed. when they got out of the subway they entered a taxi which eventually took them to their final destination,


Zairo was amazed by what he saw as they entered the temple, in the center of the temple was a huge statue of a dragon in the middle of the dragon was a little turtle holding a spear. Some people were practicing different kinds of martial arts and that was what caught his attention the most.

”Mom i want to learn that too ” Kiara chuckled. ”you can learn whatever you want Zai. As long as you promise to be less mischievous from now on. ”

” I promise, I won play in the mud, I won play with dust, I won go anywhere without your consent, I promise I will be a good boy from this moment on. ” He quickly rapped, making his mother chuckle.

”Can I learn that now, please? ” He tries making a face, a cute face, only he looked like a lifeless possum.

” You can, but we haven even seen the person we came here to see. ” She was still explaining to the child when a young man walked up to her…

”Are you in need of something or someone maam? ” The young man inquires.

”I am here to see master Shinok my name is Kiara, ” she informs him.

”Okay, just wait there for a while, Ill be back shortly ” he points to a little shade where she could sit with her son and runs off.

”mom I like your friend, I like his house, will he let me stay? ” He questioned as they sat down, his eyes roaming around the place since his legs were limited to that spot alone.

”if you are a good boy, he might. But if you are naughty, he will spank you ” she threatens the poor child, actually terrifying him for a second, but then.

”before he can spank me, Id have learned all this whoosh whoosh paw, and Ill dodge all his attempts to touch me. Ill be so strong and fast that he won even see me. ” He declared determinedly. Kiara couldn help but giggle out loud at the shocking bravado of her son.

He kept on asking question after question nonstop, and most times not even waiting for a response from his mother, as he was sure of what the answer was supposed to be.

Still busy looking around the place with just his eyes, and his legs still glued to one position, his hawk eyes spot a little girl about his age he thought. She was training in an empty room, she moved very fast for a girl of her size.

”master she has arrived ”

”Kiara? Shinok who was meditating while levitating lowered himself to the ground ”and the child? Taero answered with a slight nod ”bring her in ”.

”You can come with me maam. The master would see you now ”. Taero announced as he got to where they sat.

”Zairo, come on lets go ” she stands up, but the boy wouldn budge.

”I thought you said you wanted to meet my friend, don you want to meet him again? She asked confused and also flashing the man standing a sorry smile as she felt they were wasting his time.

” I want to, but I also want to watch them. ” He conveyed when in actuality, he just couldn fathom the fact that a little girl of about his age was moving so fast and doing some serious whoosh whoosh paw.

”*sigh* okay fine, but don cause any trouble okay. Remember you promised. Don do anything you shouldn okay? He nods flashing her a cute smile, exposing his deep dimples.

” Okay, lets go sir ” she turns to the man to leave, but then Zairo pulls on her skirt.

”What is it? ”

”what about my chicken? ” she laughs and brings out the box of chicken from the bag and hands it to him as she walked away with Taero.

Now with his box of chicken in his hand, his eyes trail off back to where he had seen the girl practicing, and soon his legs moves him there too.

She was still practicing, he watched as she moved almost too perfectly for her age and size, He wasn sure, but it seemed her eyes were green, but at times it sparkled a dust of gold, her raven black her flowed like the dancing palm does in a cool summer breeze.

She had a Tattoo on her neck or was it a birthmark? He couldn tell. It was shaped in the form of the dragon and turtle in the middle of the temple.

He just stood there watching her like a person in a cinema watching a movie with popcorn in hand. Only instead of popcorn, he had chicken.

She was done practicing and that was when she noticed him. He was pointing a chicken at her, she tilts her head a bit as if that would help her see and understand him better.

She walks over to him, and scans his appearance, the huge grin on his face was evidence that he wanted to be friends.

Her eyes trail to the chicken in his hand. It was a drumstick, she unconsciously licks her lips, and then without further thinking, or wondering who the perfect stranger was, she collects the chicken. An enormous grin now pasted on her own face.

They both sat down together eating chicken, it appears that she also loved it. ”what is your name? mine is zairo ”

in between a mouth full of delicious chicken she said ”Zaya ”

Master shinok and Kiara were already talking about old times and then suddenly…
