These two thing were the only this he chose to do of his own free will that his parents allowed. Everyone was surprise he could do these thing, but he couldn’t care less. One stormy, ghoulish night, Josh experienced a terrible nightmare and his body reacted horrifyingly to it. When he snapped out of his dream, He found his room completely trash and that bone blade were growing out of his body, dripping with a dark green liquid. When he parents rushed in to the room, they were distraught at the sight. After a moment to react, he father shouted at him and started at him with a knife he picked up off his dresser. Josh did the only thing that he could do at the moment. He ran his bone sword arm through his father’s torso, killing him instantly. As his father crumpled onto the floor, his chest began to dissolves, leaving a giant hole straight throw him. He couldn’t believe what he had done and nor could his mother. But unlike her, he felt good for once in his life. He left his mother standing there, completely scared out of her mind. He took most of her money and some of his clothes and put them in a backpack.

He and ran from Charlotte to New York City in the blink of an eye. He lived on the streets alone for two year, he was caught trying to steal for a store. He ran as away from the police at an incredibly speed, but when he rounded a corner, He was pulled in to an alley. It turned out to be a tall muscular guy who just smiled at him. Josh attempted to impale him, but he was shot back by some force. Before he could get up, he was pin under the guy’s foot. It was Duke Palmer.
He laughed and said, “Your good, but I know how to make you better.”
“The hell are you talking about.” Josh struggled to say.
“Do you know what you are?”
Josh, breathing heavily, “A freak.”
“Oh no,” he said, “You are much more, you are a mutant.”
“A mutant and I can take you to a brotherhood where you’ll find a family.”
Josh decided to go with him, and was induced into the Brotherhood of Mutants. What Duke said was true, the Brotherhood became his family, and he felt an emotion he rarely felt in his life, content. He continues to live in the Brotherhood, better known as Gabon, after the deadly Gabon viper.
