It took quite a while for the girls to navigate back to their room through labrynths of what seemed like never-ending marble hallways, all of them leading off into oblivion. Upon arriving in their room, they were immediately aware of two things. One being that Lee was in their room already, sleeping on Michaela's bed. Two was that she appeared to have moved into the room also, for her stuff was all over the place.

Michaela and Alexa walked up to her and shook her gently. "No... Don't do it..." She mumbled in her sleep, her eyebrows furrowed. Her hands were balled up into fists, and Michaela caught the unpleasant scent of something burning. "...Who do you think you are..." her teeth clenched tightly and Lee's hands lit spontaneously on fire.

The two girls jumped backwards immediately with obvious fright. "Lee!" Michaela screamed, reaching out for her friend desperately.

Lee woke up and sat up stiffly. "Huh? What happened?" The fire extinguished instantly, and the bed she was on was scorched badly. She looked at the bed and gasped. "Oh my god, i'm so sorry!" Lee looked up at the two girls with a worried expression on her face.

"It's okay," Michaela said, holding Lee comfortingly. "I'm just glad you're not hurt."

Blushing, Lee looked back up at the two girls. "Well, I shouldn't have fallen asleep. Sometimes, when I have nightmares, I... Lose control of my Qi, and it just flows out of my pores like water..." She took the charred comforter off the bed and began looking around the closet for another. Despite her best efforts to remain calm, though, she fumbled around as if something was wrong.

The End
