My Ranking Points
Second to last chapter in the series… and it’s Jone’s task!
*note (you don’t have to read this): I don’t like in books when they make up a character just so that people can be in a romantic relationship. I don’t want people to only think of Jone as Jone & Midnight but still think of Midnight alone. I want to point out that Jone is especially loyal to people but he has a habit of being forgetful. So I did not just make him up to have him and Midnight be together. Actually, originally, Midnight was basically going to reject Jone because of advice Ginger and Hester both gave and in the end they would go their separate ways, and Jone would live in Brooklyn and Midnight would live in New Orleans. But I love how Jone is kind when Midnight gets anxious or jumpy and he’s so flexible. I don’t know, but they fit together like a puzzle piece and I couldn’t bring myself to part with him as a character.

BE AWARE: THERE IS A LITTLE BIT OF BLOOD BUT IT IS STILL PG.
“You love,” a voice bellows at me.
“I’m not scared!” I yell, trying to man up, but that’s the farthest thing from the truth. And lying is horrible.
I bet Midnight doesn’t lie.
I’ve been lying all my life. Saying my name Joneathan S. Swat. And Swat is my mom’s last name, but it’s not mine.
My name is Kett. Kett Greene. And I hate it.
Kett is a boy who was hurt by everyone who loved him. Kett is a boy who killed the girl who hurt him so much and is ashamed of it. Kett is the boy who ran away. Kett was weak.
But Kett doesn’t – can’t exist anymore. I have Midnight. And I need to tell her.
I’m Kett Greene.
But I don’t like it.
I changed my name so that I could change myself. I could be strong. I could be Evil. I could be Jone.
“Well no-one loves,” the voice tells me. “Not Kett.”
I freeze up. “I-I don’t know who you’re talking about.”
The voice chuckled.
“You can’t fool me, Kett Greene. Yeah, I know who you are,” the voice said. I looked around. There was a small blue figure talking. He looked like an animation. I punched ` him in the face and it fell back. Red came out of its “nose”.
I’m guessing that it was blood.
“I know Love, Greene. And I know Love isn’t blind, Greene. I know she doesn’t usually choose… Nevers. Why are you special?” the voice asked.
I was confused. Was Love a person?
“Who… how do you know Love?” I asked.
“Isn’t it obvious?” the voice cackled and said, “I am Love. Jai may be the source of all Truth, but I am Love.”
“Wait, if Jai is Truth and you’re love… who is everyone else?” I asked.
“Well, Kett, if you survive, I was thinking… you have the name “Joneathan Karn” right now. If you tell your real name to Midnight, then you could be Excitement,” the voice told me.
That could be good. My blood was pumping so I asked, “What do I have to do?”
“Beat me up.”
“What?” I asked.
“You heard me. Punch, push, shove, I don’t care. Just do it.”
I knocked over the blue guy. He jabbed me in the nose. Blood flowed out of my nose. Why were his cuts so hard?
He looked like a video game character.
I racked my brain for what a video game was and why that would hurt so much and came across a show called Gravity Falls that I never watched. Apparently, a pixel is sharp. Video games are made up of pixels.
And in that episode the characters had to defeat the video game dude. I racked my brain on how they did it but I came up short.
Ugh! Why can’t I remember anything?
Calm down,” I told myself. Calm down, it’ll all be fine.
I ran forward at the blue guy. I noticed he was holding a pixelated sword and was about to stab me with it. Just as he was about to crush me with it and I told myself that this was the end, my hand reached up, and I grabbed the sword.
And I stabbed him.
“Good job,” Jai tells me, handing me a seed. I plant it and look at her.
“Is… is it true?” I whispered to Jai. “Are you Truth?”
“I am,” Jai told me, solemnly.
“What… what about my offer? Of being Excitement? And what about Midnight?” I asked, my mind full of questions.
Jai smiled at me. “Slower, Kett. But yes, I still offer you the job of being Excitement. And Midnight could be Curiosity… if she changed her name. But I am the source of Truth. I can not hand you a job if you’re not honest with your girlfriend!”
I blushed. “Ok, ok. But what is the JK’s?”
“As you might have figured out, the JK’s are just a bunch of adjectives. You must become and adjective to become a member and we try to spread our said adjective. But we were having trouble spreading it to your realm… until now. Kett, if you and Midnight were willing to… use a device we devised to go between dimensions… you got yourself a job!” Jai told me.
I smiled. “Ok.” And then I walked over to Midnight.
Oop, sorry, suuuuper long chapter, but I’ll get the last chapter and an epilogue out preeeeety soon, sooner than this chapter at least.
Oh, and question: should I do a book 2? Please answer!!!
Hi! I don’t read your stuff… but I like what you said at the top. Characters shouldn’t be defined by their lovers. 🙂
Ooh I love it tag me please! And yeah I completely get what you’re saying, I don’t want anyone to think that for my story either. My main character is Minette who is the big role, and there’s another boy named James and they get into a relationship, but James has a lot of other rolls than just a lover.
