"Yeah. She only has to look at you and you'd freeze. You're lucky though, she didn't glare at you," Cater snickered and Mari glared at him, forgetting she didn't have her glasses on. "Ah!" She covered her mouth and stared at the frozen Cater. "Hmph! Serves him right," she grumbled and walked to the kitchen.
Hans eyes went wide and he stared open mouthed at the frozen Cater. "Thats not permanat?" Mari nodded, and Hans hesitanly laughed. "Wait so why am I like, not stone?" Hans asked following her to the kitchen.
As soon as Arianna made her way home she hear a knock on the door. Arianna opened the door quickly and on the porch stood a man in all black. "Are you Arianna?" The man asked. "Yes" Arianna said nervously. "Well I got you now! You freak!" Arianna ran upstairs and locked her bedroom door. "I'm gonna die" Said Arianna starting to tear up.
"Wait so if we have these powers.." Hans said trailing off in thought. "Wouldn't people want to use us, are we in danger?" Hans started to panic. We're all alright right now, we're all here... Where did Arianna go? Hans's eyes went wide. "Couldn't Arianna be in danger?!"
((Okay wait, is there a socail worker at Arianna's door or is someone after her?))
((someone is after her))
"Ah. Ummm..." Mari never thought of that before. She thought only Cater and her knew about their powers but it could be possible that... "I'm not exactly sure... We were never chased... b-but it's not like that's not a possibility," she said a bit concerned. She glanced at the door. Arianna could be in danger. Possibly the first girl she'd have as a friend might be in danger. What do we do?
Arianna crawled underneath her bed and began to whimper silently to herself. The man began to bang on her room door almost breaking it down. "Pull yourself together!" Arianna thought. She began focusing her powers on the man to create a diversion. "Your powers can't fool me!" Said the man full off anger. He busted through the bedroom door and tearing her room apart. Arianna covered her mouth to muffle her crying.
Hans had read too many books, he knew that. But it was an extreme possiblity. "She said a socail worker was coming over, could someone have lied to her? Common lets go!" Hans was starting to panic, but for the first time for someone esle. "You guys were stalking us weren't you? You must know where she lives!" Hans grabed Mari's arm and dragged her to and out the door.
"Wha-?" Mari was speechless. How did he know they were stalking him and Arianna? "But what about Cater?" She asked looking back at the apartment. She could just text him. "Oh! My glasses!" Shd said, realizing they still in her hand. "Okay," she said after putting them on, "Let's go save Arianna!" Then she grabbed Hans wrist and ran to the girls' home.
Hans didn't look back at Mari as they ran. He just knew, he could feel it, she was in danger. "Common Mari!" He yelled and sped up. They got to the girls home and Hans ran in and up the stairs. A door was flung open so thats where Hans went. Hans saw a man searching the room.
Mari was trying to text Cater as she followed Hans up the stairs. She nearly gasped out loud when she saw Arianna underneath the bed and a man searching her room but she quickly covered her mouth to muffle it. She didn't know what to do but she needed to do something. She wished Cater was there; he'd know what to do.
Hans gaped at the man and pushed his glasses up his nose. "Um, e-escuse me." Hans said staring at the man. The man turned towards them and Hans took a step back. "W-would you l-leave her alone!" Hans was trying to scare him off but that wasn't going well.
Mari was astonished at Hans' sudden bravery. She too wanted to help so she stood next to Hans and nodded in agreement to what he said. "Leave her alone! Or-or else..." she said, trying hard not to shake. "You two kids should just butt out of my business!" The man yelled.
"Only if you leave her alone!" Hans yelled back, suprising himself. "Get away from her!"
((Where'd you go siddielee?))
At the sound of her friend's voices Arianna rolled from underneath her bed. "Don't you hurt my friends!" Arianna yelled. "What do you want from me?"
"I want you dead! You stupid girl!" The man grabbed Arianna's throat tightly. She gasped for air "Pleeaaassee heelpp"
Mari felt surprised. Arianna called them her friends. It touched Mari's heart because she only had Cater until now. "Let her go!" She yelled then bit the man's arm and started pounding him with her fists.
Hans lunged foward with Mari, not thinking. He rammed his shoulder into the man, and kicked at his legs. Hans was rather weak, but that wasn't going to stop him. She called me her friend, I have never had any...
The man released Arianna at once. The man then disappeared into the thin air. Hans and Mari fell to the floor as if they had been attacking nothing but air. Arianna ran over to Hans and Mari hugging them tightly. "Thank you! You saved me!" Arianna said to them.
Mari blinked several times in confusion. Did the guy just... disappear? She felt Arianna hugging her and she immediately forgot about the man and hugged her back. She was so happy she made another friend. "Are you okay?" She asked but then Cater came running in and out of breath. "You're late!" Mari yelled. "And who's fault is that?" Cater huffed, resting his hands on his knees. He looked at all three of them. "Is everyone all right?" He asked with a lot of concern.
Hans was shaking after what he just did, but embraced Arianna. He quickly let go though. "W-who was t-that man?" He asked and pushed his glasses up his nose. "A-and why did he - why COULD he disappear into thin air?" Hans looked around nervously.
