CHAPTER 13 : DAD MEETS CAPTAIN NOBODY Newt heads home and gets excited when he sees his father’s car in the driveway. In the kitchen, Dad meets Captain Nobody for the first time. A moment after that, Dad starts to apologise to Newt because he has received several calls from the school. After the meeting in the Principal’s office, the people from school think that Captain Nobody appears in school because he is so upset about his brother’s condition. Newt tries his very best to reason with Dad about being Captain Nobody outside the house. Dad feels relieved after Newt manages to assure him that he is still being himself and his alter ago is just some sort of confidence booster. Dad even takes a photo of Captain Nobody and sends it to Mom. Suddenly, the walkie-talkie squeals in the middle of their conversation. Cecil makes contact just to ask a silly favour from Captain Nobody and Newt, who is in disbelief, starts to make a weird sound through the walkie-talkie as if the device is running out of battery. As Newt is about to sleep, Dad tells him that Mom is having a good laugh about Captain Nobody and she starts showing the image to everybody in the hospital. Dad explains about the current situation and hospital procedures that they need to follow and he assures Newt will be the first one to visit if the situation improves. CHAPTER 14 : CERTAIN THREATS ARE MADE The next morning, nobody is making fun at Newt disguising as Captain Nobody and even Mrs. Young addresses him accordingly. Later on, after Cecil explains to JJ how to operate her walkie-talkie, the three of them decide to test their new mode of alternative communication. As Newt is about to respond on the walkie-talkie, a football hit at the back of his head. It comes from the students in the seventh grade and one particular kid named Ricky Ratner approaches Newt in a non-friendly manner. Ricky, who happens to be Reggie’s cousin, wants Newt to make everyone know that Reggie is not the culprit of the Big Tackle that leads to Chris’s critical condition. Things are about to get uglier during the heated conversation between Ricky and Newt when suddenly all of the fourth graders stand up for Newt, Cecil and JJ. Before the crowd disperses, the confrontation ends with a threat from Ricky for Newt. Cecil makes a point that the vibes coming from Captain Nobody make everyone in the fourth grade becomes more courageous. After what had happened, Newt has to carefully sneak out from the school. He is shocked the moment JJ calls for Captain Nobody’s help through the walkie-talkie. Captain Nobody dashes to the Sullivan’s Jewelry Store after their conversation ends with JJ screaming at the other end of the line. CHAPTER 15 : BAD SPELLING LEADS TO SOMETHING WORSE Captain Nobody is almost out of breath when he arrives at the curb in front of Sullivan’s Jewelry store. JJ cannot get herself over with the spelling and grammar mistakes found on the cardboard signs in the jewelry store. She has tried talking to the Sullivan but she is ignored by the couple. JJ insists that Captain Nobody can make a difference if he goes in and talk to the owners. Feeling obliged to the duty of a superhero, Captain Nobody steps into the store where he can clearly see Mr. and Mrs. Sullivan at the far end with their only customer. Afraid that he is interrupting their business, Captain Nobody wants to leave the store but the couple insists that they will be hearing anything from him. Captain Nobody cannot believe his eyes as he stares at the customer’s sweatshirt because he is holding a gun inside of the pocket. The situation becomes more chaotic when Mr. Sullivan manages to sound the alarm in the store. Before the robber flees the scene, he threatens Captain Nobody not to report the incident to the authority or something bad will happen to him. After being warned, Captain Nobody immediately walks out the store and wants to leave the scene. JJ tries to convince Captain Nobody to talk to the police about the robbery. Both of them run away when Captain Nobody explains about the threat he has received from the robber.
