Black holes, we know little about them. Gravity is so great that not even light can escape from it. It is said that black holes can be gateways to another universe. The closet black hole to us is in the middle of our galaxy, not only ours but in all. We own our very existence to these unknown things. How do we own our existence to these? When a black hole dies, they create something called a 'Hypernova.' Hyperova's form from the death of a black hole and when they are born, they spread out everything that the black hole had eaten during its life. Black holes also give off beams of light at the end of their poles called 'Quasars.' A Quasar is a process of when the black hole can't take in anymore and explodes. Quasars are very dangerous because they give off very highly dangerous amount of gamma radiation. In fact, Earth is right in the path of one. The Earth is in the path of Quasar 3C 273(I think after searching), which will erupt in a few million years. If that quasar hits us with is gamma radiation, the ozone layer will be instantly vaporized and will kill anyone, or anything in its path. If you are on the other side of the planet, you won't be save for too long because when the ozone layer is destroyed, it will let the sun's radiation rain on our planet, burn it up and also the Earth would be roasted form the inside out. Climate changes all over the world, but there is a slight change that it will hit us. Black holes are formed by the death of a star. If you were to look at one, you wouldn't see it but would see the space around it being distorted and forming a circle around it. If one day we were to go to one, when we get close to one, we would go through a process called stringification: a process of when gravity is greater at a point and starts stretching on that part. If a person were to look at you from a distance, they would see you start to slow down and then eventually fade away. If a black hole appeared in our galaxy suddenly, we wouldn't know right away. The black holes gravity would pull on objects and-depending where we are- we would eventually be sucked in. It would not be a good sight, if a black hole formed on one side of our galaxy and we be pushed towards the sun or on the other side, the sun is being pushed to us. In Five billion years, our sun will become one of those and hopefully, we will all be gone or moved somewhere else. And during that process, it will continue to expand destroying anything in its path; even Earth and when it is done, it will become a white dwarf then the gravity will collapse upon itself; creating a black hole. We still don't know a lot of these and scientist are still searching to find out what they really are.
It was like any other day; the birds were chirping. There were no clouds in the sky, everyone minding their own business. A kid named Denis, got on a bus and was heading home but it got hijacked by a person. The hijacker requested to drive into the bank that was a few blocks away. Denis had gotten up, the hijacker wasn't paying attention and Denis ran towards his. He noticed that something was running towards him and something grabbed his arm and it was getting tighter and tighter. The force had broken his arm and he had dropped his gun. Denis then kicked him again, making him fly out the windshield.
A few hours later, the hijacker had then woken up in an unknown area, holding his broken arm and said, "That kid will pay for what he did."
Just then, a tiny hole appeared in front of him and expanded. He tried to get up but he could not move an inch. The hole then got bigger and bigger; creating a black hole. He was then being sucked in to the hole and also the surrounding area was too; he was never seen or heard from again.
At a house miles away from where the hijacker was, lived Denis. He lived with his sister who was about to go on a date with her boyfriend. What she was wearing was unacceptable by what her brother thought.
"So, how do I look?"
"Shelby, go change now. You know, our mom would not like this." He said as she walked into the room.
What she had worn was a striped black and white shirt, exposing her bellybutton. She was also wearing a long skirt that went all the way down to her ankles. Their mom had died in a car accident a few years ago and the car and body were never found. Their dad had left them for some unknown reason; they never had contact with him. Denis was only fourteen and working eight to twelve-hour shifts at his work, barely able passing school. His sister was eighteen and was able to look after him so that social services can't take him away. She also had a job but her job only considered her to work on the weekends.
An hour passed and Shelby changed her clothing and was going off to her date. Her boyfriend, of four years, was a very nice guy. He had confessed his love for her at their school during their P.E. class. She had to think about it and after two days she had said yes. They spent every day together never separated. They had spent two hours watching a movie at their mall and were now walking home. A man had followed them since they left the theater. He ran up on them and snatched her purse and ran off. Brian, her boyfriend, ran after him and had kneed him in the back, making him fall to the ground. He pulled out a tiny knife and said, "Stop, or else." Brian didn't care what happen to him. He went down and had clipped brains cheek, causing it to bleed. He repeatedly kicked his side of his body, causing ribs to break.
"NEVER!" KICK. "STEAL!" KICK. "FROM!" KICK. "US!" KICK. "A…!" KICK. "…GAIN!" With the last kick, it had sent him flying away and he ran off.
Shelby had then caught up to Brian and was hugging him nonstop.
"THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU!" She said then gave him a kiss on the cheek.
They started to move again but Brian could move anymore. Shelby had looked back at him, and what she saw was horrifying; he was being sucked in to a black hole. She ran towards him and then she couldn't move either.
"I LOVE YOU, SHELBY!" He yells as tears run down his face.
"I LOVE YOU TOO!"
They then disappeared and never to be seen again.
Denis had been wonder what was taking them so long; Brian had promised to have her back by 9:30 p.m. It was now 10:15 p.m. He had then turned on the TV and saw that the police had discovered two areas of strange events. The surrounding areas were all string like and were coming to one point as if something was once there. The police had said that they found a broken phone at a one of the sights. They displayed the phone on the news and Denis recognized it right away; it was his sisters. He then called it and the person on the other side didn't know what to do, so he answered it.
"Hello? Who is this?" He spoke into the phone.
Tears then came out of his eyes and then he threw his phone, shattering it into a thousand pieces.
Two weeks have passed now; Denis was now in a deep depression. He started smoking, not eating and staying up for days; bags were forming under his eyes. He had walked all the way to California from Florida and was now on the Golden Gate Bridge. He was tired, hungry and angry. He was nothing without his sister. Tow voices had then came into his head. Come on, jump! Do it! The first had said. You'll join her and you won't be suffering , don't! The second voice said. You have nothing to gain from doing this, you can still live! WHAT?! The first voice said, laughing. There's no one left for you. If you do this, you'll probably see your sister ! The second voice said, interrupting. You will go to Hell, if you commit suicide. Then in unison, they said, it's your choice, what will you decide? He didn't care what happened to his body. He was now on his last cigarette. He finished it, tossed it over the edge, stood on the railing and jumped.
Denis then awakes in a tent not knowing where he was. His left arm and ribs were broken. He tried to get up but the pain in his rips was too much to take. He looked at his left arm and saw his arm in between two sticks. He hears a noise coming from outside and the light had blinded his vision and couldn't see who it was.
"So, you're finally awake" The deep voice says.
Denis had known who that voice belong to; his father.
"D-dad?" He says as he lies on the ground, eyes adjusting.
His father had long red hair that was combed back and had a Jerry curl in the front. He had a long scar on his closed right eye. He has a beard but it looks like it was growing. He was wearing a ripped up green robe. He is a little taller than Denis and has ocean blue eyes.
"W-WHERE THE HELL HAVE YOU BEEN!?" Denis yells as his father comes in, trying to get up.
"You don't have to yell, Denis."
"DO YOU KNOW WHAT I HAVE BEEN THOURH!? SHELBY IS NOW DEAD!"
"I know where she is."
"What do me-?" He says as he tries to sit up and covers his side from the pain.
"Careful, you have a broken arm and few broken ribs."
"Let me explain everything." He says as he sits down next to his son. "I work for the government; we had discovered that we can control black holes and we have tracked them down. We made these devices that can track and find black holes. There is a glitch in the system that makes them roam free and we're trying to fix that. There are people able to control black holes but that is a one on a billion chance a person can be like that; we call them Kamat's. Your sister- my daughter- was sucked into one, but she is not dead, she is alive but in another universe. Time flow is different in every universe. Only some universes have the same time. I don't know which universe Shelby was thrown into; they just pop up at random places. Not only here, but everywhere in the world, black holes appear. And -" A high pitch sound had interrupted him.
"What is that?"
"It's a black hole detector. This is how we can pinpoint their locations. And it seems one is real close to us. We fine and close them before anyone gets hurt." He says has he grabs Denis's hand. They exit the tent and walk in the direction of the black hole. They come to an open area that looks like no one has even touched it. A black hole then forms a few feet from them but they maintained their distance.
"See, this is a black hole." He says as he points at it. "Now, it's up to you."
"What do you-?" Denis tries to finish by what his father did.
He kicks Denis into the black hole. Denis was surprised at what just happened. He looks at his father with disbelief as he is slowly sucked into the black hole, not knowing where he might end up.
