I'm bullied because I'm different.
Because I don't have a home.
Because I can't afford good clothes.
Because rude things often just slip out of my mouth.
Oh, and because they're all scared that I'll accidentally kill them with my 'magic powers'.
So maybe I'm not your average teenager, but it's not my fault.
I'd give anything to just be normal and accepted.
Of course, things aren't just going to be that way.
So this is my story.


7. Hunt

"Whoever took Emily and Oscar will expect us to come after them," I say as we begin to walk toward the village square, each of us equipped with supplies for our journey.

"So?" Alice asks.

"So they will leave defenses along the way," Sophie says, catching on. "It'll make them easier to find, but it will set us back if we can't get through them."

"Right. Sophie do you think they're still in Aléa?" Alice asks.

"Yeah, they would be near the west border by now I think."

"We'd better get a move on then," Jenny chimes in as she appears beside us.

"Wait!" Another boy comes running towards us. He has white-blonde hair and pale skin. I see the corner of Will's mouth turn up slightly as the boy nears. "I heard you guys are going to find Emily and Oscar. You can't just leave me here! Besides, I could help with finding them."

"Karina, this is my boyfriend, Elijah," Will says.

Oh. To be quite honest I thought there was something going on between Will and Sophie, but clearly not. 

"Nice to meet you," Elijah grins. He seems really energetic, constantly bouncing up and down on his toes. "My power is locality tracking by the way. I can locate any person, animal, object, as long as I've seen it before. It doesn't appear to have a weakness, so it's probably just going to weaken as I get older."

"So you can pinpoint Oscar exactly?" I ask.

"Yep, he's just on the west side of Aléa, in the forest near the border, so we should really get going. I brought my stuff, I knew you would let me come."

Alice rolls her eyes, "Pretty sure we never actually said you could come."

"Yeah but you will anyway, you love me," he laughs. Somehow the way he said it didn't sound at all cocky.

"Let's go then," Will says. "I'll lead the way."

About a half hour later, we arrive at the entrance to a forest. 

"For all we know, this place could be full of traps," Jenny says. 

"Oscar is out of the forest now, they are near the ocean," Elijah says.

"Is there any way we can get there fast?" Alice asks.

Sophie suddenly looks really dizzy, she falls slightly onto Elijah. "Woah Soph, you alright?"

"There are some... really strong thoughts coming from that forest. They want blood. They are hunting for our blood."

"I can fly above the forest but I can only support one other person at a time..." I say. 

"We don't have time, they're coming closer."

I hear a snarl coming from the forest. Instinct kicks in, it's just like protecting myself from the girls back home, only difference is those girls can't fight, and now I have to protect 5 other people too... "Alice, if you sonic scream, will it knock them back?"

"I can try, but we're really close to the ocean, it might not work out too well... Cover your ears." We all comply, and an ear piercing shriek escapes her mouth, but it's not good enough. 

Around ten large wolves lung out of the forest at once, closely followed by the same amount of wolf-looking people. if I had to use a word to describe them, I would definitely use werewolves. Their eyes are round and gold, and their noses bear a strong resemblance to snouts. I barely have time to register all of this as four of them come towards me- two wolves and two werewolves. I conjure fire in my hand and hurl it at one of the wolves. It staggers back, and so does one of the werewolves, but they recover and continue towards me. I hurl another few fireballs, but each time they recover, though their fur is slightly singed. I take a quick glance around and see my friends, if anything, are doing a lot worse than me. Will and Elijah are taking on four wolves and four werewolves. Will is concentrating, probably projecting an image into their minds, while Elijah is shooting arrows at them. The arrows seem to do nothing, as the wolves just shake it off, and lunge at them again. Elijah has a large scrape down his side, but Will seems fine. Alice and Sophie are also fighting together, throwing knives at the oncoming wolves, but still it seems to do nothing. Until they both aim for a wolf and a werewolf, and each is hit at the same time. Both fall to the ground almost instantly.

They are connected. The wolf gains energy from the werewolf and the werewolf gains energy from the wolf. If neither has anywhere to draw energy from, then they seem to be incredibly weak. I notice that each of the wolves coming towards me is standing right in front of its werewolf. I gather a fireball in each of my hands and hurl it at two of them. They drop to the ground, motionless. As they do, the other pair lunges at me. The wolf knocks me to the ground, and all of the air rushes out of me. I try to push him off me, but he's too strong, and I'm too dizzy. I see the werewolf running towards me, ready to attack. With all my might I send a fireball at him. As it is about to hit him, my vision blurs. I can barely see the wolf on top of me, and my arms feel so weak that I don't think I could lift them up to hit the wolf. I feel the fire inside me and set my body alight, just for a second. The wolf catches fire and tries to run, dropping to the ground just beside me as I black out.
