Thano appeared in midair and flung his hands at Rai.
"NO!" I screamed. The air rippled and a piece of paper fluttered to the ground. Rai picked it up and read it. Her eyes widened and she spun round but I could tell she couldn't see us. Thano flicked his fingers and Rai was hit on the back of the head by an invisible force.
"Bastard!" I yell. White flames flare up around my clenched fists, I put some magical strength into my muscles and execute an uppercut that sends Thano flying.
"Don't touch her again," I say, then turn to Sparkle. She's on the floor, hugging her knees to her chest. I can hear her crying.
"Ohmyfuck, Sparkle. Get. A. Fucking. GRIP!" I say.
Now I just have to wait and hope Thano doesn't wake up too soon.
