''Ah there is no fun in doing it your way.Besides I have never been much of a sentimental person so put that out of your head.You will learn more about me soon enough.''She told Cain smiling and opened the door for them to leave.
As they walked down the dusty road towards town they both looked around and at eachother wanting to say something but kept quiet.As they got closer to town a group of men walked passed them and tried grabbing onto Edna's satchel and she turned around and belted him hard in the ear.
''Damn grandma I just bumped into you what is your problem here?''The man said as his friends started crowding around Cain and Edna.
''You know well enough what I mean you young punk,now get out of here and go bug someone else.''Edna told him forcefully.
The men getting closer to them and crowding around begin to push Edna and Cain.Beginning to get scared Cain lowers his head hoping they would leave him alone like a frightened kid being screamed at for the first time by his parents.Edna never being one to ever get scared grabbed onto Cain's arm and forced her and Cain's way through the group of men and kept on walking down the road without a worry in the world.
''Well well.''Edna said said looking at Cain and shaking her head at him.
For the first time Cain looked at Edna and saw her looking at him like she pitied him.She just kept staring forward and walking to town in silence.Cain knowing he upset Edna just held his head low and kicked the rocks the rest of the way.Out no nowhere Edna grabbed his arm and he looked up suddenly and saw her pointing at the nearby village where they both could see people and their children running around.Coming up closer to the village Cain was amazed at the sight's he was seeing.He was looking around and seeing little children running around as their parents kept trying to keep up with them and catch them.He quickly began to get overwhelmed by everything and looked to his side and noticed Edna wasn't near him anymore.
''Oh no I am lost now and don't know where I am.''He said to himself as he kept staring around the village trying to find Edna so he could run to her as if he was a frightened child.
He started feeling a tug on his arm and looked down to see a child crying.He slowly knelt down and looked at the child.
''I want my mommy!''Was all the child could muster up to say through the tears and whining he was doing.
Cain remembered having to go out and find his sisters when they didn't come home on time and looked down at the kid and put his hand on his head rubbing it gently.
''Well give me your hand,and we will see if we can find your mommy.What is your name?My name is Cain.''He asked the kid softly not to scare him anymore.
The kid raised his hand up and put his shaking little frightened hand into Cain's.''My name is Jack.''He said trying to smile.
''Well,Jack let's walk around a bit and see if we can see your mommy.If you see her tell me and we will walk over and you will not have to worry anymore,sound fair?''He told Jack trying to be as reassuring as possible to hopefully make him feel a little better and less scared.
He was glad Jack came along when he did because it helped him forget his fears about being alone.Now he had someone else to share his fears with although if only a child.Helping Jack made him almost feel like he was worth something for the first time in a long while.
Feeling Jack grasp a little stronger onto his hand,Cain knelt down to reassure him that everything will be alright once more.As Cain stood back up Jack started pulling on his arm again and had a huge smile on his face as Cain looked down at him.
''MOMMY,MOMMY OVER HERE MOMMY!''Jack yelled excitedly.
''OH,my baby you're alright.Thank God.''The mother said as she grabbed Jack into her arms and giving him a big hug.Looking over at Cain she smiled.''Thank you so much for helping my baby.''She said as Cain began to go back to his search to find Edna.
''Ok,come on Tweedle Dum let's go back home.''He heard as he looked down and saw Edna with her satchel full of supplies.
Smiling,they both began to start their trek back to the house on the lonely dirt road.Being silent almost the whole way home Edna looked up at Cain as serious as can be.
''Cain I want you to tell me and tell me the truth.There isn't going to be anymore of this sad little orphan boy routine.I let it go on long enough.Tell me what happened to you in your past and why you keep making such a rucus in your sleep.''She said staring straight into his eyes.
''It is hard for me to talk about.''He said looking back down at the road.
Grabbing him under the chin and making him look into her eyes Edna starts to get angry.''Tell me now,Cain!''She said
''Well it all happened one day when I was out.I was walking down the road alone when I ran into this strange guy.After he walked off I thought nothing more of it.Then suddenly I heard a scream coming from down the road where I was walking away from.I knew it was my house so I rushed back there and everything seemed quiet on the outside.When I opened the door I saw the strange man standing in front of my family as they were forced to sit down in front of him.He had a wicked smile and those beady eyes so red and tainted I will never forget.He told me to watch him as he lifted his hand with a knife wrapped tightly around his fingers.Then he brought it down quickly and slaughtered my whole family.I still don't know why he let me live but he just seemed to vanish into thin air.''He sorrowfully told Edna tears welling in his eyes as he stopped himself for once and just began to walk again.
Edna didn't seem to be too surprised by the story she just heard and began walking with Cain once more.''Well that is along the lines of what I thought you would say.Let me ask you this Cain.Have you ever heard the term ''Hypovans''before?''She asked curious as to his answer.
''H-how do you know that term?''He asked curiously
''Well I asked you if you ever heard it before how about you give me an answer.''
''I heard it once before in what seemed like a dream.I just thought it was some kind of a delirious dream I was having.Something my mind was making up to try to help me forget about what was happening.''
''Well it was sort of a dream.It is hard to explain.I will explain it in more detail once we get home so let's hurry up before it gets too dark.''She told him as she was beginning to walk a little faster.
