(Key to the other world)
The wind blew gently as Daniel stood by the
road side waiting for a cab, a bag can be seen
hung on his shoulder. Checking his time, it was
“Oh my God I’m late again” He exclaimed.
Almost immediately a cab passed by, “Hey, Hey
mister wait up”
“Where are you going boy” The cab man asked,
staring at him
“To school” Daniel answered gently though he
felt irritated by the Cabman calling him boy
“13, Andreson road, Hilway school” He added
“Alright, hop in” The taxi driver and they zoomed
off. Daniel looked carefully at other passengers,
two can be seen sitting at the back with him,
while one at the front.
Few minutes later, the cab man parked in front
of the famous Hilway School.
“2 dollars” The cabman said after reading the
amount from the metre.
He got no reply
“I’m talking to you”He said turning back to look
But Daniel pay no attention to him, He seems to
be searching for something
“Oh God, I forgot my wallet” He said bitterly
“What will he tell the cabman” He thought
looking at the cabman who was looking at him
Suddenly an Idea popped in mind..”I can do
some crazy things” He thought and muttering
some unknown word. He stretch forth his hand
and 2 dollars appeared in it.
“what you’re a freak” The passenger sitting next
to him exclaimed
“Yeah, I can do pretty crazy things”
He threw the money to the cabman, opened the
door and zoom off to the school leaving the door
“Hey you there, why are you just coming?” Ms
Betty, The history teacher asked Daniel as he
walked into the classroom
“I’m sorry, I woke up late” Daniel replied
“Same excuse everyday, I wondered how your
parent will be coping with you” The female
The statement shocked Daniel, almost everyone
in the school knew he was an orphan, he
understand the teacher was just trying scorn him
but he kept his cool, What will he do after all,
Will he stand up and beat up the teacher…
“Hey Dan” someone whispered, jolting him out of
“Hi Emmy” Daniel replied moving to sit beside
him. Emmy has been one of his childhood friend
and the only one who knew about his strange
“Dan, you are always late what’s wrong with….”
Emmy was trying say but was interrupted by the
sonorous voice of Ms Betty.
“What’s wrong with you two, will you face front
and cooperate with the class” She said, Daniel
took out his note and scribble down
History..”Today, Our topic is THE GATEKEEPER”
Ms Betty said
Gatekeeper!!! the name rang a bell Daniel thought
He had heard the name somewhere, probably in
his dream or in a book.
“The gatekeeper is the key to the other world, a
world where evils where shut up. He died many
yeas after the cervical war. When he used all his
energy to close the gate” Ms Betty explained
Emmy checked his wrist-watch and whispered to
“Dan, it’s time for the football competition, we’d
miss the championship if we stay a bit late”
Daniel understand the meaning he always helped
his friend every time to distract the teacher.
DISTRACT -yes he can do that by using his
power to control the mind of the teacher…
“It’s time to go” He whispered in her mind.
“Alright, we’ve enough today. I’ve to go” Ms
Betty said taking his lesson note, she dusted her
clothes and went out.
Emmy sighed as the teacher went out, student
could be seen standing up from their seat in bid
“yeah She finally left” Emmy shouted as he stood
up from his seat.
“sometimes I wonder why you only have this
power” Emmy said teasingly
“Stop that it ain’t funny… You know Daniel said a
“Whoa, Whoa come of it boy, I was just joking…,
Let’s get going” Emmy said, holding each other
arms, they went to football field…
