Logan stepped out of the car into the deep New York suburbs. He took off his sunglasses and looked around. There were homeless people everywhere; trash bags that's never been picked up. Storm took a breath and stood beside him.
"The kid lives here, huh?" He asked.
"Yes, as far as we know." Storm started walking past groups of people who huddled around bonfires, trying to stay warm in the beginning of winter. He watched as she asked one of them about their subject. "Thank you," she said as she followed the pointed hand toward an alley. Logan followed, suspiciously looking around.
"What's the big deal about her?" Logan asked.
"Cerebro found her in the hands of the Brotherhood a few days ago. The professor tried to get past, but…something was blocking us from telling us exactly where she was until this morning." She sighed as they were getting closer. Logan watched eyes as they passed through groups of people.
When they came to the alley, Logan sniffed. "Hey, Storm. I smell trouble." They came to the alley, where they saw a girl and two boys. The girl appeared to be shielding herself from the other two as though they were a threat to her. Storm walked a few more paces.
One of the boys looked up and sneered. "Who are you? What are you doing here?"
"What are you doing to the girl?" Logan asked.
"Go away!" The other boy kicked the girl, and she shook her head.
"Stop it!" She yelled.
"Come on! We know what you can do!"
Logan stepped ahead of Storm. "Hey! You leave her alone, or you're gonna get into serious trouble."
"Yeah, right!" They ran towards Logan.
"Logan," Storm said, looking towards him to see what he was going to do with them.
"Eh, let them come."
The girl looked up, and saw what was happening. She pounded her fist into the ground, and two pillars came through the ground, and lifted the boys up above the ground. She stood and laughed.
"Hey! Hey! Get us down, Riley!"
"Leave me alone, and I'll think about it! I can just leave you there if I want to!" She made a pushing movement and the boys slammed into the wall. The pillars descended back into the ground, as she made a fist. Fire rose up her arm.
"Riley!" Storm yelled to her. "Calm down!"
The air started to pick up. Storm and Logan kept their eyes on her. Riley looked at the boys, who struggled to get up. She pointed her hands towards them, and they inched back.
"Hey, hey, Riley. We're sorry, alright."
"Yeah, real sorry."
She rolled her eyes. "You're lying. You're not sorry. Leave me alone, or you won't be sorry." They lifted their hands up and ran away.
Storm went over to her, as Riley dropped to her knees. She held her head, then noticed Storm and Logan coming towards her.
"Who are you?"
"We're mutants," Logan said, rubbing his knuckles.
"Like you," Storm added, putting a hand on her shoulder.
"Oh," Riley replied, shivering from the cold. She looked at them and looked down. "I'm sorry about that. There were just too many…"
"We understand, Riley. You're having trouble controlling your powers. It happens to every mutant."
Logan nodded. "Yeah, with that much force, you could have beaten those two to bits. They were guilty, but they don't deserve to die…hate to break it to you."
"Like I care," she said replacing her hand on her head. She drooped forward, and Storm caught her.
"That kid's gonna to be trouble," He said, helping her carry Riley.
