Suddenly the riot stops. Everybody is staring at us, they look like a huge group of zombies, people that cannot use their brain, everybody staring at us, like if they are waiting for some type of call to attack. I have to admit that it’s scary, but both Elena and I get prepaired to fight. We look at each other one moment and when we look to the front one of the girls is right in front of us. She is just a kid, she is not even ten years old. Her eyes look empty, blank, she’s not in her mind right now. She smiles, it’s a smile that makes me nervous, it’s scary.
“Alex, Elena, so much time without knowing anything about you…”, she says. Her voice sounds electronic, two voices mixed in only one. One of the voices is the voice of the kid, the other voice sounds adult, with self-confidence. “Where have you been, guys?” She wants to sound friendly, she always talks in this way, she wants to fool us. Anyway, there is threat in her voice. We know that she is able to kill everyone in Times Square (and in New York) only with a thought.
“Leave them alone”, says Elena starting to get mad. Water starts to gather around her. At the same time fire starts around me, a fire ball surround me, like if I’m transforming into a fire being.
“Show yourself, you son of a bitch…”, I say, creating another fire ball in each of my hands. She laughs loudly.
“Oh, you’re so cute… Are you gonna hurt this little girl or what?”, she says with that sarcastic smile. Elena and I look around, she has to be near.
