Tommy's Dad

Today's Saying

There is often less danger in the things we fear than in the things we desire. ~John C. Collins

Mrs. Trumble wiped a tear from her eye and then said “ No Tommy. It is not the man in black. I really wish it was. You can’t believe how much I wish it was.
Then she went on to tell Tommy how the man in black was Tommy’s father’s best friend. How he was there when his father was dying and how he had promised to watch over Tommy . She pointed out that he has been very good at keeping the promise.
It seems that Tommy’s father had also been one of the men in black. They were not from our dimension but were special beings whose task it was to keep the beings from one dimension from invading another. They were called Guardians. Their biggest problem was with the demons who seemed to think the entire universe belonged to them.
A group of demons had ambushed Tommy’s father and by the time other Guardians arrived to defeat them Tommy’s father was dying. He got his friend to promise both to watch over Tommy and to tell his one true love Mrs., Trumble what had happened. That’s when she went to live with her parents.
Tommy was both sad and happy with the information. He was happy he knew who his father was but sad that he would never meet him. Now he had to come to grips with the fact that he was only half human.


  1. Hmmmm Well at least Tommy UK knows his parents now. How he deals with all of this will be the next task. I really like Mrs. Trumble...:)

  2. I have always known Tommy was special and different. I think being only half human is a major plus. I hope he comes to think so, too.

  3. It makes total sense that his father was an alien. Really.

  4. Ahhhh! Finally - relief!

    Been missing so much with this rafting thing and I've come to search out the life of Tommy UK.

    I'm glad Mrs. Trumble is his mother and sad he will never meet his father (or will he?)

    Half human. I feel like that every other day.
