Billy is taught the power of love.

by Callum B. Downes

He stood back up and raised his eyebrows to make a point. “That’s what matters most in life, kiddo. To love others more than you love yourself. When love is your weapon, you can defeat anyone and anything. You can be unstoppable” He waited there a little longer, until he realised Billy eyes were glazed over, lost in his imagination, and then returned to his desk to mark homework once more.

Author’s Note

In this excerpt, Mr C (Billy’s teacher), is encouraging Billy never to give up on his dreams. More importantly, he teaches Billy a life lesson on the power of love. Billy doesn’t know it yet, but it will become a message that he will need to help him fulfil his destiny of saving his family from a life of sadness. Something he thinks is truly impossible.
