When I woke up the next day, in the apartment. I hopped out of bed and got into the shower. I looked at the weird high tech keyboard screen thing. I read it,
Sunday, September 6, 2568.
I looked at all the complicated buttons.
"I just want to take a shower....." I mumbled.
The machine responded and startled me,
"What temperature would you like your shower today?"
Just then the water started pouring out of the shower head and onto me.
"O my word!" I screamed stepping back because it was wayyyy to hot.
The water turned off the the monatone voice came back on, "too hot?" It asked.
"Yes" I scowled at the stupid machine. Then water showers down on me. Thankfully it was the right temperature this time.
When I was done, I touched the screen in an attempt to turn the water off, but the water stayed on and music started blaring.
"Crap" I muttered trying the other buttons. It was useless it just made the music louder. I decided to just get out and dry off. Someone knocked on the door.
"Meg?" I heard the voice through the door.
"Oh josh!" I exclaimed running toward the door with a towel wrapped around me. I opened the door and peeked out the tiny hole. I saw Joshua standing there,earning on his crutches.
"Need help?" He asked
"Uhhh.....no....." I said, "well...... Yes" I admitted opening the door. I kept the towel warped tight around me. Joshua stuck his hand in the shower and turned of the stupid thing. He laughed at me.
"Get out" I ordered, "I have to change"
He walked out and I closed and locked the door behind him. I got dressed and walked out of the bathroom. When I walked out, I but my dirty cloths in the hamper. When I looked up the boy I saw was not my brother.
"What the h-...... JOSH!!!" I screamed taking a step back.
The boy held his hands up, "don't worry" he laughed, "I'm on your side"
I could hear the click, click, click of crutches as Joshua entered the room.
"Oh..... Uh meg this is Marcus." He gestured to this 'Marcus'
He had brown hair and perfect blue eyes. And he was..... Kinda cute...
"And what the heck is he doin HERE?" I asked annoyed.
"Does she know?" Marcus asked my brother.
He shook his head. We all sat on the bed.
"Dude u got some explaining to do" I mumbled to Joshua.
"Ok so you know how in the first month of being injected you reacted well to the serum?" He asked looking at me.
"......Uh huh" I slowly agreed.
"Well I had a friend who also had cancer..... He was going to die in a few days. I stole some of the serum from dads lab and injected it In my friend. It worked great. But then a few days later it all went haywire with you and we realized the power of the serum. I made a counter acting serum that gave you the ability to control it but it took a few months to make it. By then mom and dad where dead and you where locked up and all I had was Marcus. I gave him the counteracting serum."
"I'm still confuzed" I mumbled
"He had the same serum power as you!!!" Joshua whispered loudly as he waved his hands toward Marcus.
"Another like me?" I asked as my eyes got wide
"Another like you" he confirmed.
