I found Aurili in her room, just sitting there. "Hi." I managed to say.
"Hi Jade." she murmured.
"I'm so sorry, Aurili. I wasn't very nice to you, and I'm sorry. It's not your fault that you have similar powers to me. I'm really unhappy about whatever pain I've caused you."
"Thanks, Jade. I knew you would know about how you appeared to everyone else. Oh, sorry. But... everyone else looks at you and thinks of the crazy scientist without friends."
"Well, I guess that helps. I heard some other people downstairs, gotta go. Bye."
"Bye, Jade." Downstairs, Meita was showing around a new kid. I hoped that this time I could get off to a good start. Most everyone in the Unit had come to see the new arrival. His power was to cause pain- even death. I thought of Ian...
"Hello, there." he said to me. "Who're you?"
"Jade, time control. I'm pretty much the opposite of Ian. Time and space." He flinched, and I knew then, that he knew Ian. I asked him so.
"Yeah... I do. Not a good guy, is he? Anyway, I'm Arc."
"Nope." I said. I saw Brandon on the other side of the crowd, so I pushed my way to him. I saw Arc eye my out of the corner of his eye as Brandon pecked me on the lips.
"How're you?" I asked Brandon.
"I'm good, because you're here. Wanna go watch a movie in the living room?" And so, we went to the living room to sit on the couch together. I snuggled up to him as the movie started.
"Hello, there, Jade and Brandon." someone said. I whirled around.
