Chapter 032: The Cliff

518 19 2

          Brynn woke up in a chair. She didn't even remember falling asleep, but she did remember the endless hours of screaming in Joyce's arms. She sat up, and looked out the window, and to her surprise, Billy, Max's brother, and Steve were talking. Well, more like arguing. Suddenly, he shoved Steve down and kicked him, and came barreling into the house.

"Well, well, well. Lucas Sinclair, what a surprise. I thought I told you to stay away from him, Max,"

"Billy, go away," Max ordered.

"You disobeyed me."

"Billy-"

"And you know what happens when you disobey me,"

"Billy stop-"

"I break things." He said, then shot toward Lucas, pinning him to a wall. Everyone was screaming at him to stop, shattering glass and voices bounced around in Brynn's head. She closed her eyes, barely being able to process all of the noise.

         That's when the lights started to flicker. Dustin turned around and looked at Brynn, mouthing 'Are you Okay?' 

       Brynn ignored him, and focused on Billy. Suddenly, he levitated off of the ground. Brynn analyzed the area around him, deciding what she would do. She flung the teenager around like a rag doll, hitting him on the walls, the floor, the ceiling, until someone grabbed her shoulders. It was Lucas.

"Stop! Brynn, stop! Your going to kill him!"

       The dark skinned boy flew back into the floor with a loud thump, as she continued to fling Billy aggressively.

       Then, she started to change. Her blonde hair was turning black from the bottom up, and her eyes changed from blue to brown.

"Brynn!" It was Steve yelling now. She felt something pierce the skin on her neck, then Billy dropped to the floor, and Brynn fell unconscious.

       It was like she was teetering on the edge of a cliff, hanging on to an old, frayed rope that would eventually send her falling to her death. Every time her powers would take over, it was like a piece of sharp glass, sawing slowly at the rope. But the real question was, if she fell, would her friends be at the bottom to catch her, or would she fall to her doom?
