Chapter One- Africa
Africa's heat was bad in winter, and unbearable in the summer. Unfortunately for one Elizabeth, it was summer, and she had to wear wonderfully heavy clothes. She was wearing a cream colored shirt that had a high neck, and black evening gloves underneath. A brown vest was atop of this, as well as her long pants, covered in dust. For footwear she wore high black boots, woolen socks underneath them.
Adding to the heavy clothes she wore was a black scarf that was wrapped around the majority of her face, covering all from the bridge of her nose to the base of her neck. She also fashioned a pair of large, dark glasses. The one bare spot on her, from the top of the glasses to the brim of the hat that rested half way down her forehead, was white, as was her hair.
Elizabeth had a rare condition; she was an albino. Under the glasses her eyes were blood red as she sat on the front porch of a small cottage she shared with her 'Uncle Orion' as she called the recently late Allan Quartermain.
The pair was hiding for two reasons. One was the fact Allan did not want to run into his old teammates again. The second was Elizabeth's abilities were wanted by the organization that was now run by M's minions.
Elizabeth let out a growl, and rubbed the sweat away from her forehead. She was miserable, hot, and cranky. It probably had to do with the fact she was only fourteen, by Allan's gruff statement.
She looked younger though, not even having feminine attributes to her body yet, though Allan wasn't bothered. It kept stupid boys away from her, and at the memory, Elizabeth smiled under her scarf.
Elizabeth stood up, and began to walk around, closing her eyes. Reaching out with her mind, she found a small hyena pack near by. To them, even though she stood on two legs, were another hyena and every other animal felt that way. Talking with images, she found no one was where the hyenas were.
Elizabeth was extraordinary, as Allan put it. The fact she could hear other's thoughts, and could feel their emotions. As well as 'talking' with animals. Well, it was more like being connected to them, then just talking to them.
Then, some of her psychic abilities were only tied into her emotions, like when she was frightened or angry.
"Well, well. The last place on Earth, and we finally found you," a voice stated, and darkness surrounded the child.
Men, dressed in black suits, picked her up, and were gone. As the sun dipped low, a figure walked to the house, a rifle on the shoulder. Entering the house, they knew something was wrong.
A quick search confirmed what he already guessed, and growled out, in a thick Scottish accent, "Bloody Hell!"
Allan Quartermain knew the only people in the world that could help him were the people he didn't want to talk with. He pulled out a hooded cloak and walked to the near by the village. The village that had taken care of Elizabeth until Allan had come back.
The village leader was in contact with the League, and explained little, just asking them to be where Allan was buried so someone could explain.
Allan went to where he was 'buried', and waited, trying to be calm. The first to walk up was Tom, and Allan found it hard to not ask about his shooting. Next came a floating black coat, with the Doctor following, Mina on his arm. The last was Captain Nemo, and Allan shifted uncomfortably.
"Greetings. Are you our contact?" Nemo asked.
"Yes. My ward was kidnapped yesterday by people who have been hunting her most of her life," Allan stated, and Tome stared.
He shifted again, and Nemo stepped forward.
"I can see why you are worried, but are we really the ones you should call on?" Nemo asked.
"She has...extraordinary abilities," Allan stated.
Shifting again, Allan found that they were staring more. 'Why can't I hide this blasted accent?' he asked himself.
"Very well. Your name?" Nemo asked.
"Orion. I'm called Orion," Allan introduced himself.
Nemo nodded, and the group left, nearly complete. The only problem was Allan couldn't let them know it was him. 'Hold on Elizabeth!' he thought.
Miles away, due to M's genius, female nurses had removed all of Elizabeth''s clothes, minus her shirt and pants. She was also currently being hooked up to a machine, a machine that would trap her psychic abilities when used, and they strapped her tightly to the table.
Terror over took Elizabeth as she struggled, her wrists and her ankles beginning to bleed. As she tried to move them away, she noticed nothing was happening and her terror increased.
"Soon, there will be enough power to move continents, and then I shall rule the world!" a man, invisible, stated, and laughed insanely.
After all, he didn't care that she was just a child. He just wanted to finish up M's work.
