“What is your name little girl?” The man asks.
“L-L-Lory,” The girl responds.
“Lory. Okay, now where do you come from?” The man asks.
“A-A-Azarath,” Lory replies.
“Has anyone here ever heard of the place Azarath!?” The man yells to the crowd. Everyone shakes their head and give the people around them curious glances.
“Wh-WHat is your name?” Lory asks the man.
“My name is Rob,” The man replies. Lory nods her head, “I need to get you to officials. Come follow me.” Lory stands up and slowly follows Rob. She has no idea where he will take her, but she knows that it must be a safer place than where she came from. Rob leads Lory to a police station. He looks behind at Lory to make sure she’s there and realizes that she’s floating. It’s not too unusual for superpowered kids around here, but he wasn’t expecting this girl to.
“Lory, do you have superpowers?” Rob asks stopping.
“Um……. Yes………” Lory replies unsure.
“Why don’t you show them to me?” Rob replies. Lory nods and flies over his head and crosses her legs. Then she whispers some words and black swirls around her hands like a ball. Then a mailbox next to Rob outlines black in the same way her hands are and it levitates in different places before it is placed down neatly where it was before. Lory’s eyes then turn black in the same way they were red but not two sets of eyes. She snaps her fingers and she disappears. Rob looks around and then she appears in front of him. She then her hand out to her side and a black hole or void, Rob was guessing. It formed the same way all her other power worked. She walks into it and then it disappears. She comes out on the other side of Rob.
“Is that it child?” Rob asks, dazed by how in control of her powers she is, how many there are, the next thought that comes to his mind is, how did she get these powers? No man would ever make an experiment on something like this, or even think of something so amazing, so fascinating! Lory shakes her head. She crosses her legs like before and closes her eyes. Then a dragon made of the same black void as before comes out of Lory as if it was her. It swirls around before going back into her and she opens her eyes and looks straight at Rob. An innocent expression filling her face, as if nothing just happened. Rob has to blink a couple of times to comprehend what just happened. Screw the police station, I need to bring her to the school for superpowered kids. He quickly calls the number on his phone. Lory looks at it curiously.
“Yes, this is Dr. Robert. I have a kid here with,i don’t know supernatural powers or something, I need to bring her over,” Rob says on the phone. Lory doesn’t know if he’s taking her to a good place or bad, but if it’s bad she’ll be able to get out quickly, like she just did from her home. Rob turns off the phone and puts hit in his pocket.
“Come now, Lory. We must get a move on,” Rob says. He leads to to a car. And opens the door for her. Lory stops dead. It’s a monster! She thinks. She looks for an escape route. It’s going to heat her and Rob is welcoming that. She starts to panic.
“What’s wrong? Are you afraid of a car?” Rob asks. Car! It must be it’s name! “Are you afraid of the car?” Rob repeats himself. Lory just stares at the car with fear in her eyes.
“Well, it’s a long ways away to Pennsylvania from Maine, you might get tired just flying, but follow my car and you won’t get lost. He gets into the “monster” and turns on the engine. This makes Lory jump. Then as she sees there's no harm, she opens the back door and jumps in. She watches All the sites out the window. It’s a long and boring ride, but Lory doesn’t mind, she’s very fascinated by all the things she’s passing by.she’s never seens so many trees in the same place before.
“JUST YOU WAIT I’LL GET OUT OF HERE SOMEHOW!!!!” voice belowes. Rob doesn’t even turn.
“Sure you will, just keep telling yourself that,” Lory whispers back to the voice.
“What’d you say child?” Rob asks.
“Nothing, just admiring all the scenery,” Lory replies. Her voice is more kiddish than usual and more innocent. She doesn’t even recognize the voice.
“What happened to all the people?” Lory asks.
“They are inside the school, child. This is the only place where there are no streets buzzing around. It’s supposed to be quiet and peaceful,” ROb replies. But as is right on que and explosion happens shaking the ground.
“CAREFUL!!!!!!!!!!!” A voice screams. Lory looks at Rob unbelievingly.
“Okay, so not always peaceful,”
“What happened?” Lory asks.
“One of the kids must’ve used their power and blown up something accidentally, it’s very usual,” Rob replies.
“How do you know all this and other powers?” Lory asks.
“I’m one of the top scientists who study how people get their powers, from an accident, to being born with them, so I know. And to answer your second question, some of these kids were born with their powers and need to learn to control them, others were in a accident and need to learn to control them. The nearest town isn’t too far away from here, if you need anything all you have to do is ask one of the teachers,” Rob answers. Lory nods. They walk into the school, kids are buzzing in the halls talking, holding books like “how to control your power” by Rosie Smith and “The trick to keeping calm” by Howard Author. They walk into this office and are met by a tall, lean, woman with black hair and amber eyes.
“Dr. Robert?” SHe questions.
“Joulie,” Rob greets with a smile, “I have this girl with superpowers,” The woman crouches down her flowing skirt touches the floor.
“And what is your name darling?” Joulie asks. Lory can see an intelligence in her eyes.
“Lory, what a pretty name. I have a dorm room set for you, if you would follow me,” Joulie says. Lory nods and Rob takes his leave. Joulie brings her down a lot of hallways until there is a door that reads, “Dorm rooms” They walk through it. Lory is lead to the very last room. She is settled in.
“You can get your class sheet by the front desk, you will soon be able to identify every person and their powers, because of how small the school is,” Joulie instructs. Lory thanks her and Joulie walks out. She sees another bed that is made plus some school things and pictures. Lory knows that this will change her life completely.
