Lucinda was out for the count, and I wasn't going to be the one to clean her up.

All ten of us gathered around her, nobody quite sure of what do to . "Guys, give her some room to breathe!" Jade stated, taking charge.  Most of us backed away, not wanting to be responsible for whatever had happened to her.

"What exactly did you do to make her faint?" I asked William, jokingly.

"I-I didn't do anything. All of a sudden there were two of her, and now she's unconscious." William defended himself.

"Well don't you think we should you know, take her somewhere a little more comfortable?" Zoey asked, looking to us guys for assistance.

"Don't look at me. I'm not going to carry her up the stairs. What if she duplicates herself while in my arms?" I stated, hands held out helplessly.

"Good thing someone has Lucinda's back." Ellie teased, and I smirked back at her.

Jake stepped forward. "I'll be glad to take her up to one of the bedrooms."  Just like a gentleman, he scooped her up in his arms and walked up the stairs.

The rest of us scattered, off to do our own thing. Myself, I went outside and took out my blue topaz to study it. Really, I wanted to know what power I possessed, but it seemed a little strange. What if it was a lame power, something I didn't want. Ben's power was pretty cool, along with William's and Lucinda's. I wanted mine to be something comparable to theirs.

As nothing astounding happened, I placed the blue gem back into my pants' pocket. Maybe I didn't even have a power. It seemed that way. Closing my eyes for a split second, I opened them back up to find that I wasn't outside anymore, but in one of the bathrooms. And standing in front of me was Marc, about to lock the door so he could do his... business.

"Don't do it!" I begged and he whipped around.

"What the-? How did you get in here?" He looked confused, probably as much as I did.

"I don't know- one second I was outside, and the next I was in here." We stared at each other awkwardly.

"Well can you try it again, cause, ah, I really need to go." He gestured to the toilet.

"I'll just be on my way." I closed my eyes and pictured the kitchen, upon opening them, I found that I right smack on the table. It had worked.

I yelled triumphantly and began to go on a round of teleporting myself next to everybody, just to show off my power.  It all went well, until I teleported myself right next to Ellie and Eve. They both took one look at me, nodded to each other and as Ellie hit me over the head with her fist, Eve gave me a good punch to the gut.

"Ow!" I protested, holding my belly and head to ease the pain.

"That's what you get for being a show off." Ellie laughed and most of the other teens joined in. The two girls high-fived each other.

Needless to say, I was careful not to go around them anymore with my new powers.
