Bay had finished telling Mab the secret story of Cubes and Kings!
Cadet Mab had absorbed all the power of Dahn Bossik's Ownership cube and he had hoped hearing this secret story would give some insight into what was happening to him!
"That was an incredible story, Bay!" Mab said. "I really enjoyed it! But I don't know if I like the implications! Terrible things happened to the people and animals that got exposed to the cubes power!"
Bay Tellis looked at Mab and felt a strange feeling come over him. It was like nothing he had ever felt before! There seemed to an almost Aura of power around Mab, not one that can be seen with physical eyes, but felt. Bay had held Dahn Bossik's Ownership cube in his hands many times. Dahn had been with him since they were both five years old and as Dahn's master, he had used the cube a few times to bring Dahn back into line! He knew the power in that cube! He respected it and feared it as well! Now he felt those feelings welling up inside him for Mab! What did this mean?
"Mab, the effects of the cubes were instant! Tidbit grew instantly and Gree Molan's horrible disfigurement was immediate! But, you seem fine!" Bay said. "Better than ever, I would say!"
Mab stood up and stretched, flexing his muscles and taking a measure of himself.
"I do feel okay!" Mab said. "Maybe just a little more energized!"
Bay found himself looking at Mab with admiration. He hadn't liked Mab at all before, especially since he had interfered in his scheme to get Dahn a new master. Now he felt like Mab was the most wonderful person he had ever met! Bay felt the power within Mab taking hold on him! He knew that whatever Mab asked him to do, he would obey instantly! Bay said nothing of this to Mab!
"I wasn't deformed or destroyed!" Mab said. "So maybe nothing will happen to me!"
"Wait a minute!" Bay shouted. "Maybe you weren't negatively affected because you are related to one of the Ancient Ones! Your last name is Elon! Do you know your Geneology? Maybe you are related to Savante Tas or King Olar!"
Mab frowned and suddenly seemed very uncomfortable.
"What's wrong? That would make sense, wouldn't it?" Bay said.
"I don't know!" Mab answered. "I don't know anything about my families history!"
"Don't know your family history?" Bay said. "But, the library computers can generate that in minutes!"
"Look, I am not really an Elon!" Mab said. "Not biologically!"
"You mean you were adopted!?" Bay Tellis remarked.
"Yes." Mab answered and looked away.
"Well, what about your biological parents?" Bay said. "Could they have been related to the Ancient Ones?"
Mab hesitated. He didn't like talking about his past or the dark days of his early life.
"I don't know who my parents were!" Mab said bluntly.
"Maybe the people you lived with might know!" Bay answered.
"There were no people!" Mab said abruptly.
"Well, who raised you?" Bay asked quizzically.
"I raised myself until I was eight year old!" Mab answered. " I lived and grew up on the streets of Tryon City! Everyday was a fight for survival!"
So you weren't adopted until you were Eight-years-old?" Bay asked.
"Not until I was eight years old!" Mab answered with a smile. "By then, the emperor had brought peace to our planet and had built the orphanage I lived in!"
"Wow!" Bay said with a sigh. "Sounds like you had a tough upbringing!"
Mab didn't answer. He looked up at the clock on Bay's wall and turned to gather Dahn Bossik's things that were gathered at the end of the bed.
"Thanks for telling me the story of Cubes and Kings!" Mab said. "I'd better get Dahn's things and go...he is probably wondering where I am right now!"
"Please..Mab? Look for him OK?" Bay said. "He really is just a big kid at heart!"
"I will. I promise!" Mab said as he took Dahn's things and walked out the door. He wondered why someone's Dahn's age was so immature? He was about to find out....
