My eyes were beginning to hurt after staring out the window of the train trying to work out where I was being taken to. No one was looking at me, no one was speaking to me, have I done something wrong?
It all started yesterday. A guy turned up at the door. My mum’s face went white and she started stuttering “n...no...not now...not ever...and...N...NO!” but the guy showed no emotion. He didn’t look surprised that my mum, one of the toughest people I can ever think off and she was crumbling. I had no idea what to do! Run. First instinct, so I backed out, out the door and out of the house. I left and took alternant left then rights in this new city that I didn’t know yet. Just getting more lost. Finally, admitting I was lost, I stopped, sitting on a door step, in the middle of no idea...at least I as away from that scary man...but I had just left my mum with him, maybe I should try and check on her?? So I turned round, walking at a casual pace, remembering the last turn I took was left so I should start at right and just take alternate turns. I tried it looking out for anything that might give me the faintest idea where I was, but I was running so fast and panicking I had no idea of what my surrounding where because I just brushed past them. As I walked I was glancing round I didn’t notice the guy until I was going to walk into him. Judging with his expression he was not impressed with my little stunt and he recognised me. Damn. Looking at him properly he must be in his late twenties...brown hair that flopped pitifully over his forehead but not quite reaching his eyes. His face had a hardness and stern feeling that would turn milk sour as mum would say...mum! Where was she? But before I had more than a second to panic that my mum wasn’t there the guy had grabbed my arm and he had a grip like iron. No matter how hard I twisted he wouldn’t let go of me, I was stuck and I knew it. Then he shoved me in a black car...Why do they always have black cars...and I landed on the leather smelling car where someone...no idea who...Placed a cloth over my mouth and I passed out.
When I woke I was still in the car...there were 4 others with me...All boys, one looking quite please I was lying on him, I was lying on him!!! I jolted upright, scaring the boy next to my foot as I kicked out in the process and kicked his stomach. Seeing I was awake the boys let me sit up and take the empty seat opposite the perv, I think he quite liked that...great, I’m in the middle of nowhere, with 4 boys I’ve never seen before, and one of them is already getting way too hopeful... “You’ve got a nifty kick” the guy I kicked said to me, he didn’t look please with that fact either “sorry” I answered but I did mean it and his expression said that he was surprised by my answer. Then the guy that caught me turned round from the front seat and I immediately shuffled away from him, I didn’t like him, but that didn’t mean I wasn’t afraid to look him in the eye, accusingly...what did he want with me and why...”right girl” staring at me with hard eyes the guy said “welcome to the group”...the group, what group, a group that does what...“and I know you have a lot of questions but hear me out”...I hadn’t even opened my mouth but he was right, I had questions but I think the silent treatment is in order for such a horrid event leading to me being stuck in this damned car...“we are going to train you and you are to become part of the group” he went silent to see what I had to say about this and I had nothing to say, I was staying silent, he huffed, obviously unused to be so ignored, all I did was glare, why should I should like or be nice to him? After a quick cough he continued “and we are going to take you to the camp now, and you’re going to be the first girl there”...that hit me like a slap in the face, the only girl, in a place which I don’t know about yet, with a load of boys, training, ouch!...after the guys little speech finished he turned around and I quickly let my mind wonder and tried tot think positive, looking out of the window and trying to find out where I was seemed a good idea, until I realised it was dark, dark!! What was the time? With a glance at my watch I realised it was later than I expected, seeing the time made me feel sleepy, all I wanted to do was sleep. Leaning on the car door I shut my eyes, but before I could even think of falling asleep the boy I kicked piped up again “you look pleased to know whets going” he grinned it looked like he was pleased with his wit “yeah” I answered “pay back for the kick then” grinning back, a good conversation could lead to my mind relaxing just a little bit more then I was at that moment “anyhow I would say it’s getting rather late, I’m going to hit the sack, catch u guys later” and with that the boy closed his eyes and settled down into a position he could fall asleep in but I could tell he wasn’t going to sleep for a long time. At that point I decide maybe letting my mind wander would be alright, I had a lot on my mind...my brother, we have a link, me and him, I can see what he thinks without him speaking, and he can do that for me. He died. Or so they tell me but I can still feel him, too far to know what he is thinking, but he is still there in the background, but he is hiding from me. When I let my mind wonder I usually can get closer to him, but he doesn’t want me to be, and I can respect his privacy, but I hadn’t done it so long, maybe he won’t be so prepared. I pushed my conscience out of my mind, avoiding letting it escape from the link me and my brother shared and then I sent it out, in one sharp bolt down this link, with a little too much power to be stopped unless a powerful block was in place, and to make one of them in the time he had to block it wasn’t looking easy. My conscience hit him like a punch in the face, but I soon realised it hadn’t it had hit a rather strong block, with a pattern unlike what my brother normally put up...“stop it!” the guy yelled, making me jump...but I kept up my attack...“STOP IT!” he yelled again with power in his voice, surprising me, without stopping my attack I turned to look at the guy, his face had lost the sternness now it was full of fear and concentration...what was he concentrating so hard for, it was like someone was attacking his mind, ME! With that I quickly stopped my attack and I pulled my conscience back into myself before anyone could try and take over my body and stayed staring at the guy, expecting an answer, and I soon got one. Once he had gathered himself up so that no one else could attack him so openly he exploded “what were you thinking? You could have killed me! You stupid girl! They said you were going to be a problem but I didn’t expect this!”
“They?” I replied “whose they?” as I asked I looked round tiring to get clues from the others in this car, they looked more shocked then anything...why on earth why...then the guy who had stayed silent spoke for the first time “you just try and attack his mind?” without waiting for a reply he continued “it’s not a good idea, he’s impenetrable” and then they guy now reorganised but still obviously shocked answered “thought I was impenetrable but it seems not” that freaked the others out, I could tell by the expressions on their faces not many people, if anybody, could do what I could. After seeing the shock on their faces I curled up in a ball...normally if someone is exposed to the power I have I run or hide, girls in this time are not meant to have any useful powers, they are just meant to be silent twits, and I could act the part well enough, but I had my brother so I was alright, but then he disappeared about a year ago, and things have never been the sae, I got into trouble for being clever and there was nothing I could do to hide it, so we moved around a lot, that's why I didn’t know where I was running to when I first saw the guy...curled up in a ball they are less likely to notice me and I pretended to sleep as there was definitely no more chatting from now on.
The car stopped at about 6 in the morning, jolting me awake, but the others slept on. Once it was clear we were not stopping at red lights and we were at a train station the guy decided that a wakeup call was in order, with that he wolf whistled loudly and made it echo round the car. The boys obviously had this as part of their training and knew this was a wakeup call and jumped out of their skin and fell over each other in the attempt to stand up in way too small a car. Giggling to myself, the boys settled down and looked rather embarrassed at their little stunt. “we are going the rest of the way by train” the guy spoke up now that all the commotion had settled down “so get out, and someone hold on to the girl, we don’t want her getting lost” as soon as the words left his mouth the perv grabbed my arm looking proud that he was able to do so. Shaking my arm off him before he could get a good grip I climbed out of the car but didn’t make a run for it, there was no point, I had no idea where I was or where I was going or what the boys would do if they caught me so I decide it really wasn’t worth it, but the boys weren’t taking chances, before I could really make up my mind about what I was going to do the guy I kicked had grabbed my arm, his grip was stronger than the perv and I knew I could not break his grip so easily but I really didn’t want to draw attention to myself so I shook his arm lightly. On seeing I wasn’t trying to make a break for it the guy slowly released my arm, but he didn’t let his grip drop low enough for me to break free and I noticed that.
