Unable to resist a mystery, Jerry uncovers an on-line gaming site referring to a a€˜secret placea€™ for young people who feel they dona€™t fit in and a game master who promises them a world where they will belong. When the daily news headline reads, a€œPritchett, James (31), Murderer, Escapes from Prison, a€ Jerrya€™s mind begins to race, and after a bit of research, he finds more about the elusive Mr. Pritchett. Guilty of murdering the Watts family, he escaped prison and was last seen not far from the city of Somerville. But is the escaped prisoner the game master? ***** a€œWhata€™s this game?a€ I pointed at the name, a€œThe Clash of Magic and Swords?a€ a€œBeats me, a€ said Justin. Nick shook his head as well. a€œIta€™s an on-line multi-player strategy game, a€ said Kate. a€œIt has a lot of fantasy elements in it.a€ a€œPeople play on-line games, a€ said Justin. a€œTherea€™s nothing weird about it.a€ He was right. a€œLook for something else, a€ I said. I wanted to find something important on Willa€™s laptop, something that would give us a hint about who had taken him or if he was in contact with someone. There were pages where Will talked about going out on his own and finding a a€˜secret placea€™ to share with his friends, especially Stephen. I read one of the entries to myself. It was written about six months ago. a€œI wish I could find a place, a place I could call my own. I would be surrounded by my friends and we would play as long as we wanted. Maybe someday Ia€™ll find it and then Ia€™ll go there.a€ I read the rest of the pages. William sounded obsessed with finding his own a€˜secret place.a€™ I read an entry that was made a month ago. a€œI think Ia€™ve found it. Stephen and I came to know about it around the same time. I cana€™t wait to go there. He said hea€™ll take both of us. Ia€™m so excited. We are Orphans of the World!a€ a€œWhoa€™s he?a€ I asked myself. At first I thought it was Stephen, but re-reading the last line again told me there was a third person involved. ***** a€œA Clash of Magic and Swords, a€ she answered enthusiastically. a€œI made a lot of friends through this. Have you heard of it?a€ she asked. a€œNoa€bIa€ba€ and then I remembered. I had seen the game in both Stephena€™s and Willa€™s history when I was in their rooms. Stephen played the game on his laptop while Will played it on his desktop computer. My mind felt as if it was trying to tell me something but I couldna€™t make out what. a€œCan you find out how many people in Somerville play this game?a€ I asked. Ana nodded at me. a€œThe game has all kinds of stats in it, a€ she said. a€œYou can know more about the game from here, a€ she answered, opening a menu for me. a€œThanks, a€ I said. I looked at the menu in front of me. It had all sorts of information. The final version of the game was made available to the public six months ago. According to the statistics, Anaa€™s profile showed more than a hundred players from Somerville. There was also a list of different teams or guilds players could join. My eyes noticed the guild named a€œOrphans Of The World.a€ a€œThata€™s a very powerful guild, a€ said Ana. a€œIta€™s very exclusive.a€ a€œCan you show it to me?a€ I asked. a€œWe do not belong here. Our place is below the sun and moon. Those of you who wish to join, come open the circle to our world.a€a€œFor the last time, a€ I answered, keeping my voice calm as we walked through the corridor towards the chemistry laboratory. a€œWhat would ... Therea#39;s a whole pool of unsolved cases out there waiting for me to take a dive into them.a€ a€œMaybe ... It took me some time to become accustomed to the smell of the chemicals all around me. My brown-haired friend put on her safety goggles and opened her textbook.
