Chapter 15

"What do you mean? Oh, this is all too much!" I held my head in my hands and backed up into Jake. He held my shoulders in his hands.

"It's ok, just calm down, Chase."

"How can I be calm at a time like this?"

"Chase, I think you should let Williams go," said Alicia.

"What? Oh." I shook the thought of killing Williams out of mind and he began to cough once he was able to breathe again.

"Brian, what's wrong with me?" my eyes pleaded. I could feel them turn back to their normal green colour.

"Isn't it obvious?" Williams choked. "You're telepathic, and telekinesis. Really, Chase, surely a smart girl like you should have been able to figure that out," he sneered.

"Shut you mouth!" I pointed my finger at him, and instantly, his mouth closed and his head jolted backwards a bit. I raised an eyebrow and Brian laughed at me. "What?" I asked him; my patience thinning by the seconds.

"Nothing, it's just going to take a while for you to get used to being telekinesis," he smiled.

"No one asked for your support, Bri," Jake said sarcastically.

"No one asked for you hospitality, Jake," Brian sneered back.

"Oh will you to just can it!" snapped Alicia.

"Who are you to boss me around?" Brian snapped back.

"Why does everyone have to be at each other's throats?" Meme whined.

"Oh, like you're miss social," Chris rolled his eyes.


"Chris, what the helicopter was that for?" Shawn asked.

"Oh push-off, fancy pants," Chris snarled.

"WILL EVERYONE JUST SHUT UP AND STOP THINKING!" I screamed and crouched down; grasping my hair even tighter. My brain couldn't handle all this; I could feel another massive brain explosion coming on. This one was a lot bigger than the one in the hallway a few hours ago. My eyes glazed back to iced-blue and the pain kept growing and growing. My body felt like it was on fire, then I was attacked with more thoughts, more smells, more taste, more pain.

I couldn't repress it anymore; I let out the cream building inside me. I didn't think I was able to scream as loud, and with that high of a tone before. It was worse than any car break, nails on chalkboard, kettle, or that irritating sound that comes from a large speaker at rock concerts combined. Not to mention, the screams from everyone else around me combined to the massive squawk, and this caused more pain for me. I could hear, and feel, glass shattered all around me as the windows, and more light bulbs broke.

I could sense Brian crawling towards me.

"Chase, stop it!" I could hear Mem cry. I opened my eyes just for a second to see Jake towering over his sister on the floor; blocking her ears with his hands. Now that there showed just how much he loved his sister; he was willing to keep his sensitive ears exposed to the piercing sound of my screams so that Mem didn't have to. I could see, and feel, that he was in pain though.

Make it stop, make it stop, make it stop, Chase, MAKE IT STOP! I could hear Alicia think.

I'm trying, I thought, hoping that she was able to hear me.

I tried to keep my eyes opened now just as Brian pulled me into him and covered my mouth with his hand. Everyone was laying on the floor, trying to block out my screams. Though they were now muffled, they were still loud.

"Come on, Chase, you can do it," Brian winced.

My body was shaking and tears were flowing from my eyes, but I managed to stop screaming.

"She fills my bed with gasoline," I could hear Alicia say weakly. "You think I would have noticed," she started to sing.

"Her mind's made up; the girl is gone," Jake continued, "you'd think that someone's trying to show us a sign that even if we thought it would last…"

"The moment would pass," I sand in a quivering whisper. Slowly I could feel the pain cease as Ali and Jake continued to sing; I merely spoke the words softly as Brian stroked my hair. Like a vacuum, the pain was drained from my body again and my eyes were green. I groaned and rolled out of Brian's arms.

I got on all fours and looked over at Williams, who was sitting spellbound in his chair. Keeping a very intense glare on him, I slowly stood up. With my mind, I pulled Williams over to me very slowly in his wheeled chair. A quick wave of panic waved over his face; but I kept him fastened in his seat; he wasn't going anywhere I didn't want him to. "All right you, unless you want me to stretch you out and make you two feet taller, I suggest you start talking," I said very sternly.

He sighed. "What do you want to know?"

"Why can taste things that aren't in my mouth? How come my hearing is advanced from time to time? How can I feel other's pain, and smells scents as strongly as Alicia can?"

"Put it together, Chase. It's like a puzzle."

"I don't want to do you stupid puzzle! Just tell me why!" I pushed him all the way back towards the wall where their once was a window. His chair tipped over the sill, and he fell backwards and floated in mid air.

"Chase, are you crazy?" Mem shouted.

I whirled around and glared at her. "I am NOT crazy!"

"Get me down from here!" William shouted.

"They're in there!" I heard a muffled shout from the hall way, followed by several running footsteps.

"Crud," I pulled Williams back in, with me mind, just as the door was smashed open.

"Get them!" Williams barked to his goons in black.

A malicious smile came across Dan's face as he eyed me. Not this time, bud , I thought to myself.

"I think it's about time we got out of here," I said.

"That's the best idea I have heard since being here," said Chris.

"Don't even think about it," said Williams.

"I don't think we'll get out without a fight," said Jake, giving me a concerned look as the goons began to close in on us.

"Bring it on boys!" Brian hollered.
