I lie down on a bed that resembeles the one in hospitals, and Professor Hollis gives me a metal like substance and tells me to put it in my mouth. Then he puts on some calming music and tells me to close my eyes. As I close my eyes, I feel myself drifting into a sleep like state.
I came home from school tired, and directly went to Researcher's Labs. There, as usual, my uncle was working on something which looked like a machine. As I entered, I went up to my uncle and hugged him.
"What are you working on Uncle Linc?" I asked.
"I am working on building a portal which can take us to Earth" He explained. When I didn't understand, he spoke again,"It's a machine through which we can go to another planet."
"How does it work?" I asked.
"Well, it should work when I turn it on using the remote. But I still have to test it to make sure it works properly." Lincoln told me.
"Can I go too?" I asked.
"No, not yet. But maybe one day." Lincoln said.
As the portal still had flaws, a few moments later it opened itself, sucking everything that was near it.
"What's happening?" I asked.
"Don't worry, it's nothing. Just stay away from it." Lincoln warned. I nodded. He then went to work on closing the portal. Even though I had promised not to go near it, I grew curious. I wanted to go this other planet Lincoln had talked about. So I went walked towards the portal. My uncle was too busy in closing the portal to see that I had been going near it. I finally stepped into the portal and the last thing I remember wad my uncle screaming my name.
"Are you awake?" Lincoln asks.
"Yeah. How long was I...you know, out?" I ask.
"A couple of hours." Lincoln replies.
As I look around I see that we are not the only people in the room. 3 other people, who look like they're in their early twenties are also in the room. Working or chatting. When Lincoln sees the confusion on my face, he speaks,"Ophelia, this is my team."
He points at a brunette girl, with wavy hair and introduces her, "This is Camille Granger. She's a biochemist."
He then walks over to a slim guy who's probably mexican ,"This is Nathaniel Flint. He works on chemicals."
He then walks over to a tall, blonde guy wearing glasses and says, "And last but not the least, Logan Throne"
They all smile at me and I do the same. Then I ask Lincoln, "What about the test to see if I have... Powers?"
"Oh yeah, I almost forgot. Go over to Camille and ask her to test your blood." He replies.
I nod and go up to Camille.
"Hey, Camille, can you test my blood for, you know what" I ask.
"Oh, yeah, sure. And please, call me Cami" She says. She takes a strange tube with buttons and a needle at the end. She takes my hand and assures me, "This won't hurt that much."
She then presses the needle into my skin and presses a blue button. I thought she told me it wouldn't hurt to comfort me but it actually doesn't hurt. After she takes the needle out, I notice that there is no blood. Everything here is so weird.
"The result will come out in some time. You can do something to keep you occupied until then." Camille says, with a warm smile. I nod and walk over to my uncle.
Camille walks over to the middle of the room where the rest of us were talking.
"The result came out. Its negative." Camille informs us, with a disappointed look on her face.
"Does that mean-" I say, but am cut off.
"You don't have powers." Logan completes.
"I'll check. Just to make sure." Lincoln says.
A few minutes later, he gestures at me to follow him. I get up and follow him out of the room. He looks around to make sure no one's there, and then he speaks,"You do have superpowers. Someone on my team made it look like you didn't."
"But if they didn't want us to know that I had powers, why make it so easy?" I ask.
"Maybe because they just needed enough time." Lincoln says.
"Enough time to do what?" I ask.
"I don't know. But whatever it is, we won't like it." He says.
"Well, who could it be?" I ask.
"It could be any one of them." He replies.
"How do we find out who it is?" I ask.
"I'm not sure we'll ever know who it is." He replies.
Just as he finishes the sentence, we hear a loud explosion. We both fall back. I hit my leg with a table when I fall. Loud ringing fills my ears, and I slowly open my eyes. I see that Lincoln has already gotten up. When he sees that I hurt my leg, he gives me a hand then says, "Come on, lets get out of here."
I limp my way to the fire exit and as we reach outside I see that other people are outside too, including Lincoln's team. The ambulance arrives, and so does the police. After the police hears everyone's stories, Lincoln asks,"Was anyone seriously hurt?"
"No. The bomb was planted in the computer room, and since only you or the guard can go to that room to get security footage, and none of you were there, no one was seriously hurt" The cop explains.
Lincoln and I walk away from the cop to speak.
"Whoever it was didn't want us to see the security footage." Lincoln says.
"Can the footage be recovered?" I ask.
"I'm not so sure. But even if its possible, it will take a lot of time" Lincoln says.
"What do we do now?" I ask.
"I think I know someone who can help us. We have to find out who's doing all of this and why." Lincoln says.
So what do you think? let me know in the comments
