Unloved

My own background is a little sketchy though, I was found wandering the streets when I was 4. A police man named Rick Tyler found me and took me in, gave me the name Leah Tyler and kept me as his own until I was 12. He was killed in a shooting and I went into a dark time of depression and withdrawal. I still remember that October when there wasn’t one day that it wasn’t raining and I still remember that day I first found out about my powers. A boy was making fun of me and saying crude things about my Dad. So I struck him with lightning, set him on fire, and drowned him in only a matter of seconds. Everyone thought it was just a strange phenomenon but I knew the truth and so does my therapist. She was the one who introduced me to the four kids.

1. Routine

It’s raining. Again. That’s the third time this year that the rain has reflected my emotions and it’s only January. I only learned three years ago about my “affinity.” The ability to control the elements plus psychic abilities, not only is my gift the most coveted by the demon queen but the most coveted by the government.I’m not the only one with these “gifts.” That’s what the government calls them at least. We call our “gifts” a curse. Each one of us has a different and completely unique history and there are five of us all together. Brenda, Matt, Aaron, Liliana, and I make up the gifts.

Brenda is only a year older than me. She has brown hair, past her shoulders and deep brown eyes. She can read minds and can control people’s actions. She learned about her curse when she threw her fourth grade teacher across the soccer field because he was trying to “come on” to her. Her eyes turn black when she loses control but her teacher already learned that.Brenda knew what the signs of child abuse were because her Father constantly beat her and used her to make drugs after her mother died in child birth. She doesn’t talk about her past very much but after that day in school, her Father never tried to beat her again. Eventually she made him commit suicide just so that she could live on her own.

Matt is the same age as Brenda, with blond hair and brown eyes. Matt has superhero like powers he can see through walls and even, if he concentrates hard enough, go through them. When he loses control of his powers he gains super strength and his eyes turn blue but he is the only one who doesn’t think that his “gift” is a curse. Then again he is a perverted guy and always has more than three girlfriends at a time. Unlike Brenda, Matt is an orphan. His parents were killed when he was two years old, in what seemed to have been a deadly head-on with a semi-truck. Matt was raised by his gay foster parents John and Bobby. Who didn’t care whether or not their “son” was gay, straight, or anything. But they were very shocked when Matt brought three girls home at different times in the same day.

Aaron is our gothic kid; he dresses in all black, with black hair that covers his piercing purple eyes. Aaron is a half demon, so he’s only half a demon size towering around 6’7 He has enhanced senses, is super strong, and because he is half-demon he can sense when other demons are near. When he loses control, his eyes turn red and he loses himself to the demon inside.

His sister Liliana is like his opposite. Whatever she touches becomes unbroken and undamaged. She is what the government calls a healer. Aaron and Liliana share the same mom but different fathers. Liliana is blonde with dark blue eyes and is very petite.We call Aaron our Angel of Destruction and Liliana our Angel of Healing. Liliana is a lot more social than Aaron, and she is best friends with Brenda. Aaron follows Liliana around like a shadow.

My own background is a little sketchy though, I was found wandering the streets when I was 4. A police man named Rick Tyler found me and took me in, gave me the name Leah Tyler and kept me as his own until I was 12. He was killed in a shooting and I went into a dark time of depression and withdrawal. I still remember that October when there wasn’t one day that it wasn’t raining and I still remember that day I first found out about my powers. A boy was making fun of me and saying crude things about my Dad. So I struck him with lightning, set him on fire, and drowned him in only a matter of seconds. Everyone thought it was just a strange phenomenon but I knew the truth and so does my therapist.She was the one who introduced me to the four kids.

Now we live in an old abandoned warehouse that has been deserted for almost twenty years. It’s dusty, musty, crusty, and full of rat crap. The government cleaned it up just enough so that we can live in it but they made me and Liliana put wards on the place so no demon or evil spirit could enter it. The only down fall to this new and improved place is there is only one bathroom.

The warehouse is far away from any public and it takes about 2 hours and a half just to go shopping. The thick woods behind the “house” is called Night Woods because it’s fine to go in there during the day but at night, locals say that bad stuff happens in there. Nothing has happened in there since we got there but the only good thing about the woods is Moonlight Lake. It sounds pretty corny but that’s its name.

It was getting dark and the twins were up in their room and Matt was in the living room talking to his new three girlfriends one by one. Brenda and I were talking in the kitchen when we heard Matt gasp. Brenda and I looked at each other warily.

She cocked an eyebrow and whispered, “Watch this.” Then louder, “What happened this time Matt did one of your girlfriends find out that she is pregnant or did she find out about the other two girlfriends?” Brenda yelled back at him without any interest.

“Why the hell do you want to know…you can’t even get a date with a normal guy. The last time I checked you were nothing but a freak!!!! So shut your trap, Binch,” Without me knowing it, Brenda had left to confront her bully. “HEY!!! WHAT THE HELL!!! LET ME DOWN BRENDA! THIS ISN’T FUNNY!!!”

“Serves you right, you swine!!!!” Brenda screamed.

I ran into the living room to see what she had done to Matt this time. Hanging in the air suspended about fifteen feet high, was Matt hanging from his feet. Brenda was in the center of the room, red faced, and was smiling evilly up at Matt.

“What was that you ungrateful pervert? You dare lecture me about dating like normal people do? Normal people do not have three girlfriends at one time!! Normal people aren’t called freaks!!” Brenda’s voice became as cold as ice and I knew that if she didn’t calm down soon someone was going to get hurt. Besides I know that Brenda secretly likes Matt and if she did anything to really hurt him she would never forgive her self.

“Brenda.” I warned her, “Don’t hurt him. You may think you’re doing the right thing now but you’ll regret it later. Put him down please.”

Brenda shook her head, trying to get out of her mad state. Slowly I saw her put Matt down. When he was about five feet above the ground, Brenda flicked her fingers and let him fall. She walked out calling to him, “Next time I won’t hesitate, you leech.” And with that she was gone.

I smiled Brenda and Matt are always down each other’s throats about something or other. When they first met, Matt thought she was pretty hot so he tried to get her to go out with him. But he did it completely wrong. What he said was,

“Hey Baby. How would you like to be my girl? I’ve always wanted to go over four girls before…” His only answer was being throw stuff at or him being thrown across the room. It was around Christmas time when we all first met each other and Matt was about to be killed by me, if he dared to call her Brenda plus witch put together. So instead he combined the name Grinch and Brenda’s name to make Binch.

I looked at where Matt was lying on the floor unconscious. Ugh I really do wish he would stop antagonizing her...Hmm I wonder. Maybe I can look into his mind before he comes to… I placed my hand on his forehead and let my spirit flow into his. He isn’t exactly that complicated to get into unlike Aaron. Ugh. There he is...I am so glad that he can’t see me…but is that the ocean I hear. Who knew he was so sensitive. I see two silhouettes sitting on a bench. Matt doesn’t exactly have a clear train of thought does he? OK now I’m only three feet from him and I can’t exactly see the person next to him…is that it can’t be…yes it is … its Brenda!!! Yes it is her but why would he be dreaming about her. Their kissing…ooh Brenda is going to love this. OK I want out of here now!!!

“That was strange does that mean that Matt-”

“Is that a hobby of yours Leah, to look into someone’s most personal thoughts without their knowledge? Why didn’t you kiss him like you did to me? I honestly thought you were better than that.” Snarled Aaron angrily, “I guess it doesn’t surprise me that you wouldn’t care about others think about you snooping into their minds.”

I jumped about three feet in the air. I wasn’t expecting Aaron to come downstairs from his room. In all truth I wasn’t expecting anybody to be up this late. I’m usually the only one that is ever up this late and that’s because of the nightmares I have when I do sleep.

I glared up at him, “I don’t enjoy being lectured at Aaron. If you must know I was looking into his mind to know that if he was physically harmed, Brenda used him as a human hammer.” What do I care about what you think? Wait…kiss? Is he still mad about that last battle? I had to get inside him but it didn’t work when I put my hands on his forehead. It wasn’t even my idea to kiss him. It was Lillian’s idea; she said that it was the only immediate contact to his spirit. But I had to go inside of him when he was unconscious, it wouldn’t have worked when he as awake because he has such a thick head and strong spirit. It was in order to combine my powers with his so that I could destroy the mother of all demons. But even with our combined powers we still couldn’t bring her down.

“If this is about last week, I already told you that there was no other way for us to win unless I had done what I did. We could all be dead right now is that what you want?” I could sense my own anger building up, we were mere inches from a full fledged fight.I could feel my eyes flickering between white and green. So I did what I could to stop this non-sense. I turned and left the room; ran up the stairs, to the astronomy room and shut the door as softly as I could. The last thing I saw before leaving was a shocked Aaron but I don’t care he’ll never find me here. No one knew where my room was nor did they ask me. I had the biggest room in the entire warehouse. And I planned to keep it a secret.

What do I care about what they think about me? Nothing. I don’t care. Not because I can’t but I choose not to. My emotions, just like anyone else’s here are dangerous and the closer I get; the more dangerous things could be for all of us. In a day we get what, therapist Miranda and Drake call free day. We can go anywhere we want and do whatever we want. I’m going to head to the training room my powers have started to weaken and I know why but no one else will ever know.
