Crunch! I looked behind me to see what the noise came from. Nothing was there again. I was totally paranoid. This all started happening last Saturday after I touched the meteorite.
“Don’t touch it.” GOD! I should’ve listened to her. Lexi knows everything. I just wanted to prove her wrong for once. Knowing my luck I should have listened. As soon as I touched I went flying back almost two hundred feet. My sister walked over to me and looked down at my face and opened her mouth. I held up my hand before she could say anything.
“I know I know, ‘I told you so,’” I said mimicking her voice perfectly. It was a dark gift I had and I could really get under other people’s skin.
“When will you learn, Leo, you should always listen to me.”
“Well why don’t you go touch it?”
why in the world would I do that
“Because I did you… you, well you should.”
“You did what, Leo.”
“You just said, ‘why would I do that’ don’t play dumb!”
“But I didn’t say that.”
“ Yes you-“
“No, Leo,” she interrupted, “I thought it.”
“You mean I just read your mind! Sweet!”
I wonder what else I can do.
In the next few hours after that I tried every power either Lexi or I could think of. I tried every thing from heat vision to freeze rays nothing worked.
It was then I noticed a kid staring at me I was tired that nothing was working so I walked up to him and tried to read his mind when out of nowhere a snowball came hurtling at my face. My head went down and my hands went up in a protective pose.
I waited thinking: any minute I’m going to get hit. Seconds passed and I didn’t feel a hit. Opening my eyes, I saw the kid looking at my with his mouth so wide it could fit an entire baseball in it.
“I guess you found another power,” Lexi called out.
Saying nothing I just stared at the ball.
My powers let me control the ball, or just objects in general.
Thinking that I could control the ball I moved my hand and the snow fallowed like a well-trained pet. Get this: when I thought the ball going into my hands it did. I threw it back at the bratt and hit him right between the eyes. No back to the present. I was walking home from soccer practice and suddenly felt a hard hand at my back and I heard muffled laugher. Finally the person that had been fallowing for what seems like forever makes is move. I turned as I fell and saw the kid. Well it was the kid, but kind of wasn't him. He was a foot taller, was muscular, he had fangs, a muzzle, and he wasn’t alone.
