Twinepathy (Part 7): For Now

Hullo, everyone! NO IT’S NOT MONDAY. ๐Ÿ˜› I apologize for this post being late. I forgot to pre-schedule it, and I wasn’t able to post it yesterday. Onward! (P.S. Now’s your last chance to join in on the cover reveal! Let me know if you’re interested…) Click here if you’re new!

Brooklyn and I both stare at the spot where Blaze โ€“ or whoever (who would name their kid Blaze?) โ€“ was standing. I slowly reach out my hand and feel the air where he was. Nothing. I glance over at Brooklyn. โ€œWhat are we going to do?โ€ I whisper.

She looks at me, frightened. Maddie peeps out of the cushions. โ€œIs he gone?โ€ she asks, looking around.

โ€œFor now,โ€ I answer, disliking how ominous it sounds. โ€œHe kept referring to โ€˜usโ€™ and โ€˜weโ€™. What do you think he was talking about?โ€ I ask Brooklyn, my mind going into mystery solving mode.

She shrugs. โ€œFor all we know, he could have multiple personality disorder or something.โ€

โ€œLike Gollumโ€ฆโ€ I say thoughtfully. โ€œAnd by enhancedโ€ฆ Somehow he knows we have powers.โ€

โ€œHe clearly has powers as well,โ€ Brooklyn points out matter-of-factly.

Well duh. โ€œHe said something about going to talk to someone, and fixing the problemโ€ฆโ€ I muse aloud. โ€œAnd heโ€™s coming back.โ€

โ€œHeโ€™s also cute,โ€ Brooklyn mentions absentmindedly. I roll my eyes. Just what we need. Brooklyn falling head over heels for some weirdo. Brooklyn perks up. โ€œWhat if we hide, and when he comes back, if he does, we can bash him over the head with something?โ€ She reaches for Momโ€™s Italian vase again.

I groan. โ€œNo, we canโ€™t do that. Weโ€™re already sort of hiding an amnesiac, underage kid. We donโ€™t need to add assault to our list of possible crimes.โ€

She shrugs. โ€œThen you come up with a plan.โ€

I glance over at Maddie. Sheโ€™s watching us with fear. Fear of us, or fear of the Blaze guy? Then a thought occurs to me, and I send it to Brooklyn. Do you think she could have powers, too?

Brooklyn and I have always thought we were alone. Weโ€™ve never met anyone with powers before, and we know that Mom and Dad and Denver are all โ€œnormal.โ€ But now we know for sure that there are other people out there with superpowers. And who knows how many there really could be? Anyone could have powers. Maybe comic books were based off true stories, and superheroes are really real.

Brooklyn just looks shocked at the idea. I sit down next to Maddie on the couch and lean towards her. โ€œMaddie, you said you felt and urge to do something with your hands earlier. Could you show me?โ€

She looks worried. โ€œIโ€ฆ I could try. I donโ€™t want to hurt anything, though.โ€

This may not be the most brilliant idea Iโ€™ve ever had, but we can hope she doesnโ€™t do anything like start earthquakes or set things on fire. I nod. โ€œGo ahead. But donโ€™t direct anything at me or Brooklyn.โ€

Maddie nods and turns her gaze to the glass of water on the table. She narrows in on it, then stretches out her hand. Something about the angle of her fingers or her wrist is weird. She closes her eyes and her brow furrows, like sheโ€™s trying really hard to concentrate and remember something. I notice the water in the glass slosh a little bit, and then the glass slides across the table into Maddieโ€™s hand.

Whoa! Maddie has powers! Boy, I can’t wait to see what happens next… ๐Ÿ˜‰

  1. Knew it. Not what her powers were, but that she had them.
    My thought: Albany and Brooklyn should corner their parents and demand answers, because my guess if I were in their situation would totally be secret government experiment, which their parents were a part of.

  2. Ha! Telepathy! Or wait. No. Telekinetics… No…. Telephysics… Blast. Tele- tele…. XP Never mind. Maddie has powers huh? Also, is it to your credit (writing the two girls as twins), that I keep mixing them up? Maybe I just can’t keep track of all the girls. XD Though I’m really liking the story. =) Telekinesis! That’s it. Sorry. I just remembered that’s all. XP I also saw on goodreads that you’d reached fifty pages. Good job! Keep chugging through it. =)
