    Gerard Clayton Prince - Male Human/Calico Empowered Rabbit

    Chapter One

    Gerard Clayton Prince was a blond haired, blue eyed human teenager with fair skin who practiced martial arts. But this summer, he was spending time in West Virginia with his aunt, Kanatia Prince; she was his father's sister whom was a Cherokee archaeologist whom often had the tribe's permission to investigate old Cherokee gathering sites. This year, she had gotten her brother's permission to bring Gerard with her on an important ancient tribal gathering site discovery.

    "Now remember, Gerard," said Kanatia. "...we have the Cherokee tribe's permission to be up here in the mountains of West Virginia. Some local farm boys had been up here without permission and they brought home a marker with Cherokee writing on it. That's when I got called in. They had removed a holy marker for Spirit Journey meetings. My task while we are up here is to make sure the marker is placed back into its proper place. The boys said this marker was laying on the ground. Using the translation guide I have provided you with, if you find any Cherokee etchings, see if you can decipher what they say. It is important to the Cherokee people for us to learn what this spirit walking camp site was doing here and why it was so far away from the Cherokee lands. Also, I shouldn't have to tell you this next part, Gerard. Be careful and cautious while we are up here; people have vanished without a trace in these mountains. Since we have permission to be here by the Cherokee tribe, that should not happen to us. But still be careful anyway."

    Gerard chose to look for pictographs etched into the rocks and then to see if there were any words next to those pictures. After finding a pictograph of rabbit paw prints pointing off to one side of the main camp site, Gerard headed over in that direction where he soon stepped through some brush where he saw what looked like a swampy looking patch of clay mud and in the middle of this barren looking bog was a five foot tall statue of a rabbit wearing Cherokee medicine man clothes. Gerard then said, "Aunt Kanatia said we had tribal permission to be here. So please don't hurt me; I just want a closer look at you. My name is Gerard Clayton Prince. If there is writing on your statue, may I please see it?"

    Getting no reply not even from his aunt who should have been close enough to hear him talking to something, Gerard stepped slowly forward across the soft surface of the bog toward the rabbit statue. When he got to the solid base around the statue, he carefully circled the statue looking for any Cherokee writing whatsoever. It took some doing; but he finally located the writing near the back base of the statue. "Now let's see what the guidebook says the Cherokee writing translates as. Tsisdu Udelidv Gvdi Advnelvdi translates as Rabbit Magician. And this extra writing translates as for those who seek to walk my path and learn my skill; bare your body to me and show me that you have no fear to learn the spirit magic of the rabbit gods. If you are chosen, only a night will pass here while you may feel as if several months or years are passing for you; but fear not, you will be returned here the same age as you left. You must believe in the legend in order to make it back here. Are you ready for such a spirit journey? Bare yourself to my eyes and kiss my muzzle.

    Gerard got up and circled back around to the front of the statue. "I am not a Cherokee myself, mister spirit rabbit; but I am willing to be tested to learn your magic. These are the only clothes I brought with me so please don't mess them up while I am being tested. Man... why are you so good looking? First to bare myself. I cannot believe this statue is given me an erection." He then removed his sneakers first, then his socks; he next removed his pants and underwear followed by his jacket and shirt. He could feel a warm breeze passing through this clay bog area as he showed the statue his nudity entirely by turning slowly in place. When he was facing the rabbit statue once again, he said, "I am embarrassed for being attracted to your statue, mister spirit rabbit. but I am ready for the test. Now for the kiss." and he placed his mouth upon the statue's muzzle lips and kissed the hardened clay lips deeply. When he closed his eyes momentarily, he heard a voice. "You are very brave indeed for a white man. Give my regards to the spirit clan for which you will be tested to learn my powers. Try not to forget your name during the spirit journey. Since you are not a tribal Cherokee warrior, your rabbit name will be Prince Gerard Claypaw. Only a night will pass here; and begin!"

    Gerard felt what seemed like an electrical jolt through his lips which caused him to fall backward at an angle into the soft clay bog mud. But instead of simply landing on top of the stuff, he sank through the softer than the rest clay mud surface covering and then he felt as if he was in free fall albeit slowly as he went down what seemed like a rabbit's hole. "Alice I am not. And I am sure I am not going to Wonderland. The rabbit spirit said the spirit clan would test me. Only a night would pass back on the mountain but I could be in the journey for weeks or months in my own mind. If I believe, I will pass the test and learn his magic. He said that my rabbit name would be Prince Gerard Claypaw. I wonder how many young Cherokee warriors were brave enough to take the Spirit Rabbit's test. The way he spoke, I was the first in centuries. Why am I still aroused by his representation. I have a huge hard on and I am sure that won't be appropriate to the spirit clan I am about to meet." And as he had that last thought, the fall suddenly picked up speed and Gerard blacked out even though he had been trying to stay awake.

    Within his next waking moment, he opened his eyes and he saw his aunt sitting nearby. His body had been cleaned up and he was dressed once again. He had been laying on a cot within the expedition tent as he slowly sat up and said, "Vibu b uftu uibu vbt!" And then he shook his head and said in English, "How did I get back to the tent?"

    His aunt glanced over and said, "That sounded very tribal, Gerard. I don't know when you got so fluent. I found you naked in front of one of the spirit testing statues. I gathered up your clothes and then I brought you back to the tent where I cleaned you up and then I helped you get your clothes back on. Were you on a spirit journey? You were completely immobile. And you Prince men are so very good looking. Puts my John to shame. Good thing I am already married."

    "Auntie... It's a wonder you Prince girls didn't pounce the Prince men in the family the way you are talking."

    Kanatia replied, "Oh we wanted to. Don't think we didn't. We are done here for now. I have to get you back to your family by this weekend. It's not every day a white man takes Cherokee Spirit Tests and is ever seen again. Or what is your take on why others disappeared and you didn't? When I hadn't heard from you in a while, I went looking for you and saw you laying there butt naked with a hard on."

    Gerard smiled and placed a hand through his hair as he replied, "I think those others failed their tests and got changed into the animals the spirits represented. In other words, they have been seen on the mountain but stuck as animals. They were not as serious nor as focused as I was and they botched the spirit tests. Once in, they rebelled and tried to escape. Upon reaching the real world, they were stuck in animal form as a punishment for wasting the spirits' time and energy. Am I wrong? You know how focused I can be."

    Kanatia commented, "That sounds like what a vengeful spirit might do to a stupid human."

    End of Chapter One

    Chapter Two

    It took two and a half days for Kanatia and Gerard to hike out of the mountains of West Virginia, and as they emerged into a roadside park where Kanatia's car was parked, they saw representatives of several animals of the region lined up where upon each one bowed to the young man and licked his face before departing into the wilderness.

    Once the animals were gone, Gerard looked to his aunt and asked, "What was that all about?"

    Kanatia hummed. "There are stories that after a successful spirit journey, the animal alphas of the region greet the newest spirit warrior and show their respect before properly departing back into the wilds. And it appears these animals did just that. They seemed to know that you were the one. I am glad you didn't flinch. I know that some of those animals would have caused me to pee myself had I been alone."

    Gerard said, "When that Snake was in my face, I almost went down both legs. The Wolf and the Bobcat being that close without a zoo fence to shield me was also frightening. The Eagle, the Owl and the Raven was frightening as well. But I could sense that they meant me no harm. The spirit statue implied that I was the first in centuries to take one of his journey tests and very brave for a white man to attempt."

    At that moment, a silver colored jet copter landed nearby and CIA agents got out and secured the area before giving the all clear to the pilot of the copter. When the pilot emerged, it was Gerard's father, the one known as the Best of the Best. Leon Prince. There was another passenger within the copter but he was staying seated for now. "Ah, Gerard! Are you ready to head back to civilization? I found you a high school that matches your focus and determination. Your siblings missed you this summer."

    Gerard grinned. "The guy in the copter looks a little old to be one of my siblings."

    Leon hugged his son and said, "That's the President of the United States, son. I am taking him and his escort to Camp David."

    Saying goodbye to his aunt, Gerard grabbed his suitcases out of her car and loaded them into the copter before piling into the back of the silver flying vessel. And then the flight on to Camp David resumed. Gerard told his father what had transpired on the mountain and how the local animals reacted afterward. Flying East out of West Virginia, they soon after getting a verbal challenge from Shangri-La were being allowed to land in Camp David. It was just a stop over for Leon and Gerard; but the president and his escorted departed allowing Leon to lift off and continue the trip off to Princeton New Jersey where Gerard would be joining up with the Princeton HS Tigers in white and blue. Leon had been in touch with the principal at Princeton and he was eager to meet the American James Bond Jr.

    Getting Gerard settled into the new Prince family housing complex was like moving into a Co-Ed dormitory just Northwest of the High School itself. Waiting outside the complex for it to be unlocked were a few people Gerard knew. Karen Tesla Davis; Lena Diamond Hawthorne; Jameson "Jamie" Belle King; Arthur de Gaulle Wolfe; Dallas Maverick Brooklyn; Dorin Alvinar Cavanaugh; and Timothy Rainbow Heart (the School Mascot.) Gerard remarked, "Hey Timmy! Parents released you from the parental chains finally?"

    Timothy grinned. "They wanted to rent out mine and my sister's rooms to an elderly couple. So I convinced them to let me stay at the Prince complex. Closer to the school, etc."

    He then added, "This is one of my friends, Dorin, usually called the Lightbringer. His parents own a local lighting company. Flashlights, lanterns, spotlights, you get the idea."

    Dorin grinned. "My mom likes to play golf. Dad has a night watchman security job. He won't tell me where."

    Karen and Lena both hugged Gerard and gave him a kiss on the sides of his face. They both withdrew and made an odd bleh expression afterward. "You taste like Wolf and Bobcat."

    Jamie smiled. "Bobcat?! Let me give you a kiss!"

    Gerard went into one of his martial arts poses. "Keep your lips to yourself." Then he whispered, "My dad is still standing right over there."

    Arthur said, "I am the local junior chef whom has a crush on Karen." Dallas commented, "I'm to be your in-house electrician and computer expert."

    Leon said, "I was in touch with Miner King about Jamie living here. I didn't know the others were coming but I guess the principal had other ideas. This is NOT to be a party pad or else you will find yourselves sitting in the dirt outside of town. Lodging is only free as long as you are in school. So don't be failing on purpose just so you can live here. Gerard has college plans at Metropolis University. So after graduation, he won't even be here."

    He then added, "Q Computer Language should be inside programming Gerard's new computer system for his school work and the ability to call me if you guys mess up."

    Gerard said, "We hold our parties off campus, guys. Dad said it himself."

    Leon said, "Show me good grades and I'll arrange a party for you."

    Gerard grinned. "What did you ever do with the fan club, dad?"

    Leon said, "I think you just like hearing the story." He shook his head as he handed the house keys to his son. "Very well. I took the briefcase to the Penny property in Southern West Virginia and threw it over the fence. And then I ran away. The fan club went in to fetch it and I never saw them again." Gerard winked at the collection of teenagers before opening the front doors to go in and get settled down. The dreaded Penny property: a place built on top of a nexus zone of multiple worlds.
