Today was a good a day for Timmy he had just been promoted to manager at his job working at chicken world,But unfortunately for Timmy all that was about to end.Whilst Timmy was walking he noticed someone wearing a ski mask running from the direction of his family’s apartment given that it was January he thought nothing of it,but when he got home his world was turned upside down forever. Once at the apartment Timmy noticed that the door was unlocked even though his mother and sisters would not be home for another twenty minutes. Reluctantly he opened the door and sitting on top of the Kitchen counter was note that said “I know where he is “. Befuddled Timmy picked up his phone and texted his mom a picture of the note,and asked if she knew what it was about or who could have left it ,but when she responded all she said was “I’ll be home soon”. Not knowing what to do but still wanting answers Timmy decided to call his Uncle Jim.
Timmy’s uncle had helped Timmy’s mom raise him and his sisters when their father died in a car crash nine years ago.Uncle Jim was Timmy’s fathers brother and Timmy’s only Uncle since his Mom had no siblings. Timmy was certain Uncle Jim would know what to do,but when Timmy called him there was no answer.Timmy only had five minutes to figure out what to do before his Mom would get home, and likely rip the note.He thought that if he left his Mom would see him running,and even if she did not she would notice that he was gone and find him in minutes.Once his mom arrived he had the brilliant idea to hide the note,and tell her that he was tired and going to take a nap,but then sneak out without her noticing for at least a couple of hours.After supper Timmy set his plan in to motion,went to his room,and snuck out.
Not knowing where to go or who to talk to Timmy decided to call Uncle Jim again,and this time there was an answer Timmy explained the situation with the note to uncle Jim,but all Uncle Jim said was “I know”. Uncle Jim’s answer befuddled Timmy so much that all he could say was “what?”. Uncle Jim then explained to Timmy how his father wasn’t actually dead but instead hiding from the Mafia. “What about the car crash” Timmy asked, Uncle Jim responded with “Timmy your father faked his own death” “how?” asked Timmy very confused “I helped him Timmy I helped him”. Uncle Jim said with sorrow in his voice. once again Timmy was at a lost for words but mustered the courage to say “why? why now? why not before? why wait so long?” All Uncle Jim could say once he noticed how truly upset Timmy was with was “I’m sorry he told me not to tell, that it was better this way”.Timmy was enraged not only with his father but also with Uncle Jim, in fact he was so upset that all he wanted to do was scream so loud that everyone could hear,but he knew not to and instead decided to ask Uncle Jim where his father was. Uncle Jim responded “the broken city” These three words bewildered Timmy because he had never heard of a place called the broken city.Timmy hung up and decided to return home to research the broken city.
Once back home Timmy got to work researching the broken city,But what he found was nothing no one had ever heard of the broken city he started to think his uncle had lied to him. right he was about to give up he found something was an old book title the broken city, and he had found it in is Dad’s old study that they had left virtually untouched. After skimming through the book Timmy once again decided to call Uncle Jim, But this Time he knew what to ask. Uncle Jim Answered this phone and said “hello” Timmy respond by saying”is the Broken city a real place or is it just a place in a book?”.Not sure what to say or what to do all Uncle Jim said was “I don’t know” “Why don’t you know” Timmy asked passionately.”Timmy all he told me is that was where he was going” Uncle Jim said with his voice full of sorrow. once again not knowing what to say Timmy was left silent for thirty seconds until he brought up the courage to say”do you know where this place is”.”Timmy your father told me about this over nine years ago I’ve forgotten most of what he said”Uncle Jim responded. Discouraged Timmy hung up and decided to continue reading,and at the back of the book he found a map with coordinates that he assumed would lead him directly to the Broken city. Timmy decided to get some rest and then visit his uncle to show him the coordinates and get his opinion on what to do.
The next morning when Timmy woke up he went straight to his uncle Jim’s to learn his opinion on what to do. Once there Timmy showed Uncle Jim the Map and the coordinates and asked him what he should do. Uncle Jim pointed out to Timmy that the coordinates lead them to the middle of the pacific ocean. “Could there be an island there that no one has discovered yet?” Timmy asked.”possibly,but even if there is an island how would we know if your father is still alive” Uncle Jim answered.”should we tell my Mom” Timmy inquired “no, there’s no point she’s already gone through enough” Uncle Jim said with sorrow in his voice. “Well are going to find him?”Timmy inquired “no” Uncle Jim replied “what why?” Timmy asked befuddled by his Uncle’s decision.”He doesn’t want be found and even if he does the island might even exist or he could be dead, Timmy there’s to many what ifs” Uncle Jim responded sternly. Timmy knew his uncle was right but still thought his father could be out their and said”what if he is out there what if the island is real and what if he wants to be found?”. “That’s still a lot of what ifs but if you’re serious about wanting to find him i’ll help you”Uncle Jim responded.”How do we get there” Timmy asked all Uncle Jim responded with was “I know a guy”.
Uncle Jim and Timmy hopped in his 1997 dodge challenger and drove to the place where they were meeting uncle Jim’s friend. Uncle Jim and Timmy arrived at the meeting place which Timmy was surprised to find was the local airport. “why are we at the airport” Timmy asked sounding very confused. “My friends a pilot and he agreed to fly us directly to the coordinates you found. Uncle Jim answered. Uncle Jim and Timmy walked to hangar H where they found a small ten passenger jet. All of a sudden a large man wearing overalls hopped out of the cock pit. The man’s name was Steve and he was approximately 7 feet tall and weighed approximately three hundred pounds.Timmy was surprised at Steve’s size because he expected all pilots to be small and thin. The three of them hopped in the plane and took off.
After flying for only four hours they made it to the coordinates and to their surprise directly under them was a small island with several wooden structures on it. It was hard but eventually they found a spot to land and made their over to the wooden buildings.After about a one hike they made it to the structures,but what they found was very disturbing.All the buildings looked rotten and as if they hadn’t been used by anyone in years. The three of decided to wait for three for an hour to show up then go home. They waited and waited but no one came discouraged they walked back to the plane and flew home. once they got home uncle Jim told Timmy he was sorry for what he did, But Timmy knew his father was still alive,and would stop until he found him.Although Timmy wanted to keep looking he decided that today was no the day and that he would wait until he was older.
