I walked into the cafeteria and got a bunch of food onto my tray, then I sat down at a table and waited for my friends. After a few moments Merari came by and sat down with her lunch.
"How were your morning classes?"
"You will not believe it!"
"Loki Phoenix is in my first and second classes!"
"Congratulations, it's like kismet. Perhaps you two are meant to be together."
"So, what did you learn?"
"He has such a wonderful shade of orange hair."
I groan and hit my forehead lightly with the palm of my hand.
"Sometimes, I wonder about you."
"Hey guys!" Hyperion says as he sits down next to me. "How are you guys?"
"We're good," I replied for Merari and I, both. "What took you so long?"
"I sped up time too much and was late."
"Hmm, you know: 'Patience is a Virtue'."
"Where is that even from anyways?"
"The Bible, it's one of the Fruits of the Spirit."
Then, completely ignoring me Hyperion starts talking to Merari. "Really, he's in your first and second classes! That's so cool!"
I groan. "You guys are too-"
Suddenly, I get cut off when I feel a force pushing me against the wall. I watch as Hyperion is forcibly moved off the chair and Merari is shoved into the wall. Then, I see a guy with blonde hair and blue eyes walking towards me.
"Hello, my name is Quintin Brass. You three are sitting in my spot, and you don't want me as your enemy."
Suddenly, my eyelids close, I try to open them but I cannot.
"I know your power Mortidian."
Immediately, all three of us, Hyperion, Merari and I are thrown backwards by a mysterious force and we all end up at different parts of the cafeteria. And then, finally, I feel the force keeping me still loosen.
Enraged, I stand up and start to run at Quintin, but I feel a force shove me against the roof and then it lets me fall.
"No!" I scream until Merari just catches me.
She sets me down and puts her wings away. Then, Hyperion walks toward us.
"Well, that wasn't very nice."
I reach for my doll only to realize that it's not there. Then, I see Quintin look at me and lift his left hand, revealing that he has my doll.
"Gragh!" I scream in rage. "Hyperion, stop time so that I can take my doll back."
"If I stop time you get stopped too."
"Can you get my doll for me then?"
And suddenly, Hyperion is in a different spot and he hands me my doll.
I grab my doll and take out a needle from my pocket, I raise my hand to strike the doll but then Merari stops my hand.
"No, we'll be just as bad as him."
I look at her forehead, but she knows I'm talking to her. "Ok, fine."
