Nelson Marleen had just finished his Physical Sciences degree at Hudson Valley, and he is a famous live streamer. He was playing a popular game at the moment that had more people in the streets looking for creatures and being more active. Today's live stream was an exciting live stream. He caught a few new creatures, answered some comments and won a few battles. Nearing the end of the live stream, a rare creature appeared in a bush. he couldn’t believe his luck. he got in the bush and caught the creature.
As soon as he caught the creature, he noticed he was not alone. On the other side of the bush, a homeless man was looking around. Nelson saw that the homeless man’s bones were showing under that thin skin and the homeless man’s face was scrunched up like he was debating to do something or not. The homeless man looked like he decided on something and pulled out a stick, tapped the ground and a plate of sandwiches appeared out of nowhere. Nelson couldn't believe his eyes. Was he mad or did he just not see the plate of sandwiches? It was like magic. He asked his live stream if they saw what he saw, and to his astonishment, they saw the same thing. Unfortunately for Nelson, the homeless man heard him on his third sandwich. How was it possible that the plate was able to refill itself? The man looked horrified that he was seen. He tapped the plate with his stick again and the plate stopped refilling itself. The man got up and ran to the bushes. Nelson startled that the man was running at him got up quickly and fell, the man reached Nelson and grabbed him by the legs and started to pull Nelson to an even more deserted area. Nelson didn’t even think to scream. When they were in the shadow of a big oak tree the man spoke to Nelson.
“What were you doing hiding in the bushes, eh?” There was fury in the man's face.
“I was catching-” Nelson began.
“So, you thought to catch the notorious River Jaydon by yourself,” River whispered furiously.
“No, sir, I-, ” Nelson tried to say.
“Oh, you want to be polite now that you are caught? I don’t think so,” the River continued to whisper to Nelson.
The were sirens in the distance.
“If you let me go, I won't tell the police where you were,” Nelson replied, hoping to settle this peacefully.
“The what?” River looked confused.
“Police, cops.” Nelson looked confused. What was River running from, if not the police?
“Now you’re making up words,” River looked annoyed, as well as angry.
Nelson thought of an idea that was so crazy, River might just let him go because he will think he went mad.
“I won’t tell the wizards about you,” Nelson knew how stupid he sounded.
River went from red to white in under a second.
“Y-y-your not a tempty,” River said uncertainty.
Nelson looked confused.
“What is a tempty?” Nelson asked.
“And you said police are coming,” River asked.
“I just said that so we could end this peacefully.” Nelson said.
River didn’t look like he believed him. The sirens were getting louder.
“So you're trying to catch a pure one? Well, your luck has run out.” River was starting to get angry again.
River pulled out his stick and pointed it at Nelson. A flash of light appeared from the tip and Nelson crumpled to the ground. River ran to get the plate of sandwiches, which he had left on the ground, then continued running. The police came a few minutes later and found Nelson unconscious on the ground. When he came to, he didn’t remember that night at all, but his live stream did.
