2. A Car Ride With the Chocolate Death

Iris started walking towards the identical blue Ford car as the one her older brother was in, but quickly turned back around when she heard the car engine start. By the time she looked, the car was almost gone, and all she could see of Lucas was the back of his black haired head.

Her car horn beeped impatiently and she whipped back around to see a figure, a little shorter than the other one, holding the car door open. She quickly walked over to the car, but stopped before she went in. Iris looked up at the person. "You do know that if I struggle, it's kidnapping." She glared into the bright sun as she looked up at the person. In reply, he just held up a gun. "Alright, alright, I'm going." Iris clumsily climbed into the car, hitting her head on the top of the door frame and swearing aloud. She finally got herself situated enough to be comfortable and noticed the seat belts had been replaced with gold chains. I'll just...save these for a last minute resort.

It was then that she realized that the room of the car was much bigger than what she had thought it was going to be. It had been...enlarged? She looked up to see the figure glide in after her. Geeze, she thought as she rubbed her still-aching head, is it possible for a person to be so...unclumsy? No fair.

Iris took a peek at who the driver was, and found a head of brunette curls cascading down a young girl's shoulders. She had electric blue eyes, and Iris knew that if Lucas had ever seen her, her would make goo goo eyes and start drooling. She was pretty in a strict, uptight way. The curls shifted as she looked at Iris and examined her own green eyes and straight black hair, so much like her brothers. If they had been twins, they would have been the identical type. "Are you going to keep staring over my shoulder, or are we going to leave," the girl snapped.

Iris sat back, startled. "Uh, yeah, let's go. Sorry."

After a few minutes of riding side by side with the Grim Reaper and the Chocolate Death, Iris was starting to get uncomfortable. Not from the seats, which were plush, but from the heavy silence that hung like a cloud over the whole car. I wonder what the Chocolate Death's real name is? she thought. It would be nice to know.

Just as she thought it, the girl started talking. "My name, Iris, is Victoria. No nicknames. Chocolate Death included."

Iris' eyes widened. "Are you, like, a mind reader or something?"

All she got back was one word.

"Yes."

"You-you're joking, right?" Iris stuttered.

"I don't joke," Victoria replied.

Iris took a deep breath. "Oh," was all she said.

Victoria looked at Iris, still driving. "We're just waiting to see what your ability will be."

"My-my what?"

"Your ability," she said impatiently. "You wouldn't be sitting in this car if you didn't have one."

Iris rolled her eyes. "Okay," she said, "makes perfect sense."

"Glad I could be of help," Victoria replied coldly.

Iris' eyes took a spin one once that. It's called sarcasm. I'm still as confused as a chameleon in a bag of Skittles.

"And who's fault is that for being a ridiculous imbecile?" Iris heard Victoria snap from the front.

Forgot about the whole weird mind reading thing.

She heard another angry snap. "If you think mind reading is weird, you should see other people at the place we're going to."

This was going to be an interesting trip.
