    For a moment he stared off into space before snapping out of it."Ah... glad it reached you and to be honest i had been gone so long i didn't think you'd go to find me over some silly words on a paper, i think ill always send you a mother's day card but... the help part i don't know who to turn to and you've always been so wise and helpful, straight forward too i figured maybe i should try" his whole act dropped and he started pacing back and forth nervously collecting him self before he poured his heart out.

    "I'm not happy. I want to be happy so badly and its my own stupid fault! Ever since i got in trouble i wore the band and i guess that was fine, b-but i locked my self away i was scared i didn't want to see people i didn't want to be judged, but i was so god damn lonely, i was under so much fucking stress" he said speaking fast as if he was an old man rambling about something. "Burning things helps but thats hard to do when you can't burn anything! I get cravings and i just need to remember that its all going to be PEACHY if i just wait it out. But its not, its not fine i finally got this thing off and i'm afraid. I don't seem to be good at anything, i have dreams i constantly shoot down and and... i want to set fire to things i get antsy and i have to stop my self. I have to hold my emotions in and just act like every things is fine, i can't do that anymore. I want to burn things i want to set my emotions free let things out but i don't want to hurt anyone, i don't want to be a monster. I want to be healthy, i want to grow up and get married, i want a family" he fell to his knees with his head down punching the ground. "But i'm still afraid, afraid if i were to tell anyone they'd think i was crazy, i needed a power band again maybe even throw me in the joint" a few tears fell from his eyes."I feel... so alone, i feel cheated.. on top of everything the two fucking people who raised me just walked on out like i was a joke... something fun for a few seconds but then forgotten. I just want to be loved... and i keep messing things up for my self... i have no guidance. I just need to know what do to Mom. I need a controlled environment where i can go wild, you don't know how painful it is keeping all this... fire built up inside me". He wiped his face and sat down all quiet now.

    Tears? When was the last time she evened cried? That seemed like a luxury she had lost with time but seeing Stefan do it reminded her why it was taken from her. It caused weakness, emotion, feeling. Those were things that wouldn't be allowed in her old days. However, these weren't those days and the had the right and authority to be free of her old burdens. Despite that, she remained silent as Stefan dumped his thoughts off on her. It wasn't much of a shock that he felt the way he did. People went through rough patches all the time in life. It was just that the one he was going through was going to be rougher.

    "Well, I'll start by saying that going wild is something that won't help you but exacerbate the problem. Letting your emotion dictate your mental stability is the last thing you want to be doing when your powers seem to be so unruly."

    Haru folded her legs before continuing.

    " I've said this before toy you but it seems to not have stuck. You let your emotions and power control you when it should be the other way around. If you don't do so then they will use you as a tool and swallow you up until you are nothing but a shell for its use. If you do those things then I am sure your mind will clear up and you will worry about less strenuous things. My father did things a certain way back home and I've modeled my life around those values. They've helped me so maybe they can help you."

    She scratched her head and sighed as she could hear through her earpiece that they had been spotted and the two groups were closing in on her position.

    " I'm not the best teacher but I do pay people to do that. I want you to speak to your school about your urges to use your fire despite the repercussions it will envoke. They have no legal right of throwing you in jail for not committing a crime so dash that thought away. Instead, you will commit yourself more to your school work, especially power classes. After which you will come down to my job and I'll have some instructors train you in discipline and control."

    Haru had a sadistic giggle escape her.

    "By asking for help you've committed yourself to a lot of pain and heartache that I will be the source of, but know I do it out of love and care.....Also, stop calling me mom. Makes me feel old"

    She laughed.

    He sat and listened closely to her words, some where hard to accept but everything she said was right. He knew that she would tell him what he needed to hear and not what he wanted to hear, which was great."Ill work on all that emotional stuff, but just a heads up i'm still not sure this is all i can do, i feel like i learn new stuff all the time whenever i push my self or try to push my self over the limit".

    He nodded as she spoke about his school work."Yea I've been pretty good with that stuff, school takes my mind off a lot of things so i don't slack there i can promise you that. Understood, ill do whatever it takes i guess, you do know best after all".

    He chuckled nervously knowing somewhat of what she was capable of. "Well consider it a mothers day gift then because i'm a pretty good punching bag in a sense" he said smiling a little and rolling his hand. "Eh I've called you that for so long now don't you think its kinda stuck and i'm not saying you're old, just someone i look up to! Also there's that whole mind set thing its just nice to have a mother that cares" he said looking down.

    Haru continued to smile.

    " If it is such a necessity for you then go ahead and call me so, and don't worry. If your powers get out of hand I'll just have my employees spray you with a fire extinguisher."

    Her tone didn't give away if that was a joke o not but nevertheless she continued.

    "My desire is to use you as a punching bag. That does nothing and is neantherdal in practice. Instead of breaking you down we will renovate what is built and continue from there. You're a good kid with a decent heart. Given some direction, I'm sure you can have that spouse and family you want."

    Rustles could be heard in the tree line and from in front and behind them eight guards walked into clear view, guns holstered at their sides.

    "Come. Sitting on the ground is fun and all but I did leave a cup of tea on my office desk and it's surely cold by now."

    She chuckled, getting up and dusting herself.

    He chuckles nervously once again and mumbles "And a you're gonna need a few pickaxes too. But yea i don't think ill let it go that out of control again, i'd probably pass out or something".

    He looked to her with a meek grin. "Thanks I uhh owe you like everything, i'm glad i have people like you i can rely on in sucky times like these. I have good intentions but get side tracked by lots of things, yea that sounds about right." he stared at the guards for a few seconds and figured he wouldn't even bother asking.

    "Yea the ground isn't comfortable whatsoever" he does the same getting up and patting him self down. "Oh and sorry bout the tea".

    "Well I also have a microwave so that should solve the tea problem" she chuckled.

    Haru motioned for everyone to roll out and they all nodded before beginning to track the path back to the forest entrance. This had gone a lot smoother than she had expected, or at least better than she had predicted. Playing hide and seek with an adult was far harder than a child.

    "So what exactly are you doing now to control your power. From what I can see burning random things isn't a real regimen to solve your issue. Do they have you in power classes at all? I hear they are meant specifically to combat people who need to control their gifts."

    Haru was pacing behind the larger group who had found her old trail and was tracking back to the limo.

    "Huh i honestly expected you to tell me the only reason you came and found me was because you wanted me to warm up your tea" he snickered a bit him self. Stefan had always been one for laughs and joy, even after emotional moments his moods seemed to move so smoothly from one to the other. At least the emotion of joy.

    "Well... its complicated and not complicated at all, you see my powers can be controlled and used like normal but emotions trigger certain things inside me, i can contain these things but... it feels so wrong. I can't describe the feeling, i guess the closes thing would be as if i was letting someone important down. So to better control my powers i need to better control my self and thats been hard for me lately, i haven't exactly been the happiest person. I'm good at holding things in now, but i'm tired of it, i want to put it to good use somehow and i think thats what you're planning to help me do right? Oh and yea burning things doesn't help, but its the only good memory i have of my past life, in Canada of course! I consider this place my home now".

    He walked beside her glancing over countless times, he was glad he had such good people to help him out but he did wonder what she had been up to. "So hows the whole company thingy going? Judging by all those people i'd think its going pretty damn good".

    Haru looked behind her where Stefan was looking and saw the cold hard faces of the officers with her. She knew they didn't want to be doing this but the paycheck was nice and she had earned their respect by giving them a job in their time of need. One could call it forced debt but she preferred the idea of it being a reciprocated favor.

    "It could be going better. A lot of the workers aren't used to being confined to human form and not using their powers. Most of our business is off the island so It is an adjustment for most people at first, but at least we are making a profit. I was worried that the idea of working in the human world would dissuade people but instead, it seems to be a steady flow of interest."

    Haru dreamed of a future where her headquarters was hundreds of floor tall and a giant digital logo displaying to the masses below. It was very dystopian and she loved it. That was the goal when she first made the company...or one of that is. To leave a mark on the place she was now calling home.

    "Maybe one day you'll be another one of my employees. That is if we can get this whole power business sorted out and get you the proper training."

    One of the werewolves snickered and let it grow into a chuckle. "The boy is to scrawny boss, He probably couldn't hold a gun without twitching. The last thing we need is someone shot by accident."

    "Hence why it is called training Suraj. I'm sure he could do it." She defended him as the other officers silently judged Stefan.

    He was glad that things seemed to be going fine with her, Stefan wasn't one to want things to be as good as they could, he preferred it to stay right in the middle. It seemed when things got a bit too good someone would take something too far and bad things were well, bad things. When nothing was going on it seemed as if Stefan felt relaxed and content with him self, at least that's how he remembered things in the social setting, he hadn't talked to many people as of late. "Ah that sounds like a freakin dream, steady sounds amazing right about now" he said and sighed.

    The thought of working for her never had crossed his mind, he used to have a job but he quit that one and just focused on school, it was a bit too social for the hard time that he had been going through. "Ah yea that'd be nice working for someone i know, someone i trust" He said smiling lightly before hearing what the werewolf had to say.

    A ton of feelings came over him and he cringed a little, his smile faded and he just kept quiet. One of the main reasons he didn't speak to many people anymore was all the teasing, of course he was weak but what did that matter? Why did people have to bring it up so often, this island was a place of peace and understanding, not a contest to see who was stronger. He wanted to love, although i part of him felt such power before and enjoyed it.

    Stefan shot Haru a thankful look and kept his head down not wanting to talk and start anything. It felt good to have someone looking out for him.

    Haru reciprocated Stefan's look with her usual smile and gave him a small pat on the back. She knew that few people enjoyed being put on the spot, especially if it's for their faults and not their skills. It wasn't like she was going to boost his ego and give him a big head about his abilities, but the least she could do for now is hold back the judgments of people who've been in control of themselves for a long time.

    As the vans and limo came into view Haru pointed for Stefan to get into the limbo while the others loaded themselves into their respective vehicles. All this show just to find one kid. She was sure that that thought was still flowing in their head. Regardless she still felt nothing and was just happy that Stefan was okay. The please help portion of the letter led her to believe he was in some real trouble again and this time she would be sure to step in.

    "Get in." She spoke to Stefan as she ducked her head to enter the limbo.

    The inside was very formal with all the party stuff remove for more space. She was currently working over the idea of scrapping it for a limbo with a tea maker but that seemed overly eccentric for her. Scooting over so Stefan could enter she'd roll down the windows on the opposite side of the seats so that more fresh air could be let into the hot car.
