I sat back in the small abandoned warehouse, and looked around me. Mikenna and her twin brother Dawson where sleeping on two cots in the corner, they both had short blond hair, and I knew they both had light blue eyes just like mine. I looked at my 6 ½ year old brother and sister, and felt bad for them. I wish there was something I could do to make their lives better, without stealing. I sighed. If only mom and dad hadn't died a few years back, and the attack on New York a few days ago didn't help our luck either. The apartment that we'd been living in had been destroyed by some giant flying snake thing, and the coffee shop that I'd been working at had been decimated by three of those aliens. I sighed, and stood up. I grabbed my bag and walked over to Dawson. I shook his shoulder. He opened his eyes and looked at me.
"I'm going to go out and see if I can find us something to eat watch over Mikenna till I get back," I said, resting my hand on his shoulder. He nodded his head. I walked out of the building, and down the abandoned street. There were several cars flipped over, and scattered all over the street, and I saw two dead aliens lying on the ground. This street used to be full of people, but ever since the attack this street has been empty. Suddenly I felt all tingly and everything started to turn slightly blue. Ah crap not now I don't need my ability to kick in right now, not while I'm trying to find food for Dawson and Mikenna.
Suddenly I wasn't standing in an empty street, but I was standing on a street filled with aliens, and super heroes. Well to be fair it was only one super hero, to be specific Captain America. Oh of course I would travel back to the day of the attack, I've been thinking about it for the entire day. I looked up from the ground to see a massive alien running at me, but I was still slightly paralyzed from my trip back in time.
"Get down," Cap shouted from behind me. That was all it took to pull me from my paralysis. I ducked to the side, and landed face down on the ground with my hands covering my head. I heard a sickening thud, and I looked up to see the alien lying on the ground. I pushed my long blond hair back out of my face, and looked over at Cap.
"Ma'am are you okay?" Cap asked, rushing over to me. I looked over at him, and for a second I couldn't seem to find my voice. This is what I'd been like when I first found out aliens where invading New York, at first I couldn't speak then my only thought was to make sure that Dawson and Mikenna where somewhere safe. I nodded my head.
"Yeah I'm… I'm fine," I mumbled. He reached down and helped me up off the ground.
"You should get somewhere safe," He exclaimed. I nodded my head, and looked around me. Okay now would be a good time for my ability to kick in and send me home.
"Are you sure you're okay?" Cap asked me. I nodded my head.
"Just in a bit of shock," I mumbled. Suddenly I saw an alien sneaking up behind us, and he aimed some sort of gun at Cap.
"Watch out," I shouted, tackling Cap to the ground. I looked around frantically for some sort of weapon, and my eyes landed on a large metal pole. I reached out and grabbed the pole. Okay time for those karate and self-defense classes to kick in. I turned, and slammed the pole into the alien's side, then brought the pole down on its head. It doubled over, and I kicked it in the gut. It tumbled backwards, and again I slammed the pole down on its head. I heard a sickening crack, and the thing fell to the ground dead. Damn I don't know my own strength!
"Thanks," Cap exclaimed, getting up.
"How did you do that?" He asked. I looked up at him.
"Karate and self-defense classes does wonders for these kind of situations," I replied, giving him a fake smile. I really just wish my ability would kick in, and take me back to the present, where we aren't being invaded by aliens. I watched as Cap picked up his shield.
"You really should get somewhere safe," He stated. I started to nod my head when I felt tingly and everything started to turn blue. Yes thank you, finally! Cap looked at me worriedly, and started to walk towards me.
"Ma'am move there's… something around you," He shouted, running towards me.
"No it's okay I'll be fine. It's normal… well normal for me," I replied. I could feel myself disappearing, and Caps eyes were getting wider and wider. Then suddenly I was once again standing on a deserted street. I rushed back to the warehouse, and over to where Dawson and Mikenna were sleeping.
"Guys come on get up we have to go," I exclaimed, shaking both of them. In an instant they were both awake, and grabbing their things.
"What happened?" Mikenna asked.
"I went out to get us some food; I went back to the day New York got attacked. I meet Cap, he saved me, I knocked him out of the way of a blast, killed an alien, then came back," I explained quickly. They both stared at me in amazement.
"You really meet Cap?" Dawson asked. I nodded my head.
"Yeah but we really got to go, I kind of don't want anyone finding us," I replied.
"Your hand," Mikenna exclaimed. I looked down at my hand. I hadn't realized it but there was a deep cut on my wrist, and it was bleeding like crazy.
"Crap!" I mumbled.
"Here let me take care of that," Dawson muttered, grabbing my hand. He put his hand over the cut, and I watched as his eyes glowed, along with the cut on my wrist. When he let go of my arm, the cut was nowhere to be seen, not even a single mark had been left. I smiled. All three of us had been born with an ability. I was able to travel into the past and future, and apparently was really good at fighting aliens, while Dawson could heal people. Mikenna could control people's emotions, then there was the fact that both Mikenna and Dawson could hear each others thoughts. I sighed; I don't want anyone to find out about them. If someone found out about them then they could be in danger, and the fact that one of the super heroes who saved the city heck the world had seen me, then it was possible that someone else had seen me two.
"Come on lets go," I shouted, running towards the door.
