Three days the island burned before Oliver could even start searching for his family. The only thing keeping him going is his son, William and the faith he has in team.
William had been stuck in this stupid boat for over a week, first by the crazy guy, Chase, and then by the guy that’s supposedly his father, Oliver Queen. After Oliver came into his life everything had changed. Within months of meeting Oliver, William had been taken. He hadn’t been scared until the last night, the night the Green Arrow and his team came to save him. After, he had been forced to leave his school, his friends and he was told to never contact them. The worst part was he had to change his name.
William realized Oliver was his father after he had sent his mother and him away. Oliver told him that it was for his protection, he had said he loved him and regretted not getting to spend more time with him. WIlliam thought it was an excuse and that Oliver just didn’t want him as his son. William had wondered what his life would have been like Oliver had stuck around, or stayed in contact. He never told his mom about the late nights he spent searching for information on Oliver; he didn’t like what he saw at first, but things changed and now he was a Mayor. William had wondered if that was another reason he wasn’t able to go home.
The one thing his research had not told him was that his father was also the Green Arrow. The vigilante that had saved his life, worked with the Flash and killed people. For months he’d been obsessed with everything Arrow-related, he’d even started wearing more green. He had pretended that The Green Arrow was his dad, the hero had made him feel safe. But now that he knows the truth, being the son of the Green Arrow kind of sucks.
It had been five days since the island Oliver called Lian Yu had mostly blown up. The first day, Oliver had tried to get on shore but the ground had been unstable and the heat from the burning forest left Oliver no choice but to watch and pray. The first night he had returned, William watched his <em>hero</em> cry while the island burned. Oliver held onto him, he tried to offer comfort but his voice kept breaking and the words were lost.
