Everything changes just in a minute. The calm before in Times Square has been replaced by a riot. People have started to fight against each other without any reason, it seems that suddenly something has been triggered in their brain. A sign to start a riot, a sign to destroy each other. Human versus human. A huge power is needed to perform something like that and there are very few people in the world with such a huge power. None of them are human, of course. Mind compelling, a way to make a human do whatever you want, a way that only a Caeleste can do, a way that only a group can do: Menthus.
“How did you know that this was going to happen?”, , I ask to my friend shouting over the shouts and the rest of the sounds of the riot. She looks worried and ready to fight. She has always been a great fighter for the human rights. Back in our times, when the Caelestes were in the top of every living, Elena and I, with another two friends, Aaron and Zack, fought against the Caeleste government, against our King, in order to give every human being the rights to be free, because in those times they were only slaves.
“I have lived here for the last three years. There is a reformatory outside New York where Syndus is the headmaster. He trains young Caelestes to control their powers and I was investigating that when I felt it. I knew because we had felt it before, when we were young. She knew where were we all and I could hear where were you. That’s how I found you.” I look again to the riot.
“Is she the person who has done this?” I asked again, I know who is able to do something like this.
“Yep.” Answers Elena very calm.
“Is she going to come?” I want to know, if she comes we are going to fight, it would be unavoidable.
“She is already here.”
