27. James' Sister
"What?" Charity exclaimed, "Ellie's your sister?"
"Oh my god!" Ellie exclaimed. "First you steal my best friend, then you steal my brother!"
"Best friend?" Lorde asked. She looked at Vito, who put his head down.
"Vito?" Charity asked, caution in her voice. "What is she talking about?"
"Vito and I went to the same school." Ellie answered. "We hung out all the time, other kids bowed down to me because I was so popular." Charity rolled her eyes. "Vito was my only true friend, or so I thought. Vito got into a bad crew and got landed here. I did something bad just to come here with him. Only to find him ignoring me-"
"Because I knew you were a jerk!" Vito yelled. "I spoke to a few other kids and they told me what you were, and I didn't doubt them for a second."
"So he sat down at that table with you." Ellie told Charity. "Therefore putting your life in danger."
"I didn't know she was going to go crazy!" Vito exclaimed.
"Ellie, enough." James spoke up. "I know you are going through some hard times, but we can get through it. If you'll only just speak to-" He was cut of by Ellie's scream. She lunged at Charity, who dodged and swiped her hand the air to create wind. Charity threw the shield of wind at Ellie, who was forced to the ground. Ellie took out a knife.
"Where's Lorde?" Charity yelled, not seeing her friend. Vito quickly shrugged and set a nearby tree on fire with lightning. Charity forced the tree to fall with her wind. It fell about ten yards from Ellie. All of a sudden, water whooshed towards them." Charity ran close to Vito and James and created a wind shield to protect them. Water sped past them as Charity struggled to keep the shield up. She finally was not able to continue anymore, and they were swept away by the rushing water.
