The Telepathy Twins: Chapter #11

Short Stories

Adam turned his head and noticed his sister, dancing with a boy.

At first his protective instincts sunk in, but then he just laughed and smiled at the fact that for once in their lives, they were having a good time.

“Boys, before I take you up on that offer, I want to know more about the company.” Adam responded.

“Well how did you get into the party in the first place if you don’t know what this company is about?” Some man in a tux that was a part of the conversation.

“I uh, uh…” Adam responded not so smoothly.

The men turned into each other leaving Adam out of the loop of the conversation.

“I bet he has powers” The previous man spoke adressing the group.

“What are you talking about? He’s most likley just another Regular.”

“Regular, what’s a Regular?” Adam cut in to the muttled conversation.

“None of your buisness” The man in the tux said pushing him out of the group. “But think about it boys, he and that girl with him match the perfect description of the two we’ve been looking for”

“He’s got a good point” Another man mentioned with all the men nodding behind the statement.

“How do we find out for sure?” A man from behind asked.

“We test him.” They said now raising their heads to look at Adam as they were slowly approaching them.

“Hey, do you want a drink?” a man asked, and the test began. One shot of whiskey and Adam was done for. Completely drunk but not so far gone he couldn’t answer questions, it was perfect.

“So what’s your real name? Adam Smith. See that pretty girl over there” he said pointing over at Adla as she danced. “That’s my sister, Adela Smith. I’m telekinetic, and she’s telepathic, and she has the ability to change people’s brain box” He said, then burped and almost fell over from the blow.

“So you’re telling me you have powers” The first man asked.

“Yep, I’m like superman!” Adam replied trying to rip his shirt pen and trying to jump off the bar stool to demonstrate his skills in flying. “But shhhhhh” He made the noise obnoxiously loud shouting over everyone with his index finger up in front of his lips. “I didn’t tell you this, It’s a secret!” He yelled over everyone and everything in the building.

The music stopped, and Adla stopped dancing.

“So what are you going to do to us now that you know our secret?” Adam asked and gave out another belch.

“Ask you both for a job” The man responded.

Adla ran over to her brother, “What?!”

“Yes, we all have powers.” The man said demonstrating his ability to move the ground. “We know you’re the two young teens we’ve been running all over to find. You see, you’ve been brainwashed. Your parent’s worked with us, and when they died you were kidnaped by these people that only want to expose and manipulate people like us, it was our job to keep you safe, and we didn’t.”

“So, your uncle Chase? He was on the other side?” Adla asked.

“Chase never wanted to kill you, but he could never bring you to us, so we searched all over. Unfortunately we had to kill him out of self defence. The trucker man you found was also tracking you. I’m so happy we found you, because we can now finally bring you home.”

There was a moment of blank silence.

“It’s just a lot to handle” Adla responded.

“You made my sister CRY?! Why I otta…” Adam responded drunk as ever.

“Adam shut up!” she yelled. “If you can prove that our parent’s wanted us to be here we’ll take the job.”

“All the papers, letters, and everything else in in my office, swing by on Monday.” The man in the tux offered.

Adla just nodded and took her brother to the hotel.

August 8, 2017

So I endured the first two days of school last week. It was good. I saw my friends but all the people were so overwhelming. I forgot my pop socket, so I had a hard time on the first day. I was fidgeting a lot, and so I flipped my hair without even realizing it, but I needed something to distract me.

I know everything is going to be okay, but it’s hard not to be anxious when every teacher is trying their very best to intimidate. But that’s fine because I live by the fake it till you make it quote and that’s what gives me confidence. Most of my teachers seem cool, but I’m playing two sports, and showing five species of animals at 3 different county fairs. I’m also taking all advanced classes, so it’s just a lot to think about but I can handle it.

Finally lunch came. I was still pretty anxious. Victor (my best friend since 2nd grade) hugged me for like a minute straight. I’m not always a huge fan of physical contact, especially at school when my guard is completely up and I don’t talk but that hug made all the stress go away.

Guitar was okay, but being in the band room with Mrs. Cassidy as my teacher always makes me feel so much better.

The day went on, I Β made it through, then I had my cross practice. Cross Country is great it’s such a small team, and a love hate relationship with running and feeling all that pain binds you together. So I always feel a lot better, when I run I’m in so much pain but I always feel so much better at the end.

This weekend I went over to my Fair Bestfriend’s house. She’s going to college. It was amazing to spend so much time with her. I just was present with her it felt amazing. I love her so much, and I’m so proud of her and I can’t wait to see her chase her dreams.

Remember, if your dreams don’t scare you, they’re not big enough. Also remember life can be very crazy and it can make you very anxious so maybe just step back, but don’t miss out on everything life has to offer just because you’re scared.

So I guess I’ll catch you on the flip side.

Fitness Friday #5

Hey guys, it’s Issie so today I wanted to talk to you about going back to school. I have to do it, sadly. I hate going back to school, but that’s just me. Anyways one of my BIGGEST struggles in school, well I have many when it comes to school but one of them is eating. I have livestock and I love doing my makeup for school, so I never have time for breakfast, I also never eat lunch because maybe I don’t have money, or I don’t want to eat the crap they call pizza (but we all know it’s not) so then I go around begging for food all day, and when I do finally get home I binge and I watch all the YouTube videos in my subscription box and eat everything in sight.

That is so bad for your metabolism, because eating proportional meals around the same time every day actually boosts your metabolism, and that’s what gives you a flatter belly rather than eating one meal a day or crash dieting.

So because of that, I’m going to list some easy healthy recipes for breakfast and lunch.

Now before I start I’d like to mention I love to meal prep, meaning I make the meals on Sunday so I don’t have to make them throught the week.

Breakfast:

  1. Toast a piece of bread, cover it with peanut butter (or nutella but peanut butter is healthier, remember to use it sparingly.) And cover it with whatever fruit you have in the house, maybe some chia seeds, or honey, or granilla. This is a light breakfast that gives you protein.
  2. One of my favorites is greek yogurt, but you can add strawberries, berries granola, chia seeds and more. I find that when you have a bowl of yogurt with fruit, I can last for hours because of the protein.
  3. Oatmeal, everyone knows how to make it. I personally like making it with pieces of green apple and adding cinnamon, and with the rest of the apple I have it as a side and I put peanut butter on it too.
  4. This isn’t exactly food but I love making a good green tea in the morning. Green tea can clean out some of your toxin as well as it gives you a slight caffeine boost if you are someone who likes drinking their tea with sugar, try replacing that with lemon juice instead. The lemon juice is also good for your system, and it clears out your skin.

Now all of these breakfast ideas aren’t exactly good ideas to meal prep because they won’t stay fresh, but that’s fine because all of these ideas take less than 10 minutes to make.

Lunch: (now this is the stuff you really meal prep)

  1. Turkey wrap- take a tortilla add some cheese, lettuce, tomato, sour cream, turkey, and whatever else you want. This is an easy meal to make, and it is easy to meal prep. I’d also have that with chips and hummus or whatever other side you want.
  2. Noodle salad- with one of those kitchen aid things that makes you cut cucumbers into noodle form. I make lot’s of salads with just one cucumber and add whatever other items you like in your salad. Personally I like adding some meat to mine, but that’s just for some extra protein.

I also add a small snack in with my lunch because I am always starving towards the end of the day.

School can sometimes suck, and although this post isn’t exactly exciting I hope you guys are eating well, and feeling good. Hope you have a good year this year too.

Catch you on the flip side!

Back to school edition!

Wow back to school season… I don’t want to go. But, I start on Thursday. Yep, I’m a Sophmore now (in case you were wondering). I don’t know what I feel going into this year. I’m on the cross country team, I’m a huge member of the FFA, I have great friends, and I’m making some more and it’s not making me anxious. I’m looking forward to the dances, the cross races, the football games and the nights with my friends making me feel happy and alive. I aso may be taking some really hard advanced classes but I am taking guitar so I can finally be a part of the band family.

But at the same time, when I walked into the library to pick up my books before school I saw all the people I’ve known since pre school. It’s just weird because I felt this overwhelming feeling of being confined and being left out. Small town problem I guess. I’m also starting to get anxious a lot more in social situations and instead of having panic attacks, or other things, I have a mental breakdown and my body starts to shake and then I breakdown and cry, and I don’t cry.

But let’s be honest here, I shouldn’t be getting anxious. I finally have a great group of friends and I don’t have to go through some of the things I did last year. But the fear of the unknown is always a hard thing I guess. I’m taking almost all advanced classes, and I still don’t know anyone who’s taking them with me.

School can be a drag, but it doesn’t have to be a living hell. You should always look on the bright side. Sorry about my rant, but I figured someone else out there would feel better because of it.

In the end , school is probably going to be great and I have nothing to worry about, but yet I still worry. :p

In the end I’m going to go to school, and I could either drag myself through the entire experience, or I could choose to enjoy the entire experience and face it head on. And I chose to face anything head on that’s why this year is going to be my year.

So I’ll catch you on the flip side!

“Hello children, this party is invitation only” The man at the door said crouching down to Adla and looking at Adla.

“Hey man” Adam said shaking his fist standing taller than him.

Adla put her hand on Adam’s fist, and looked into the man at the door’s eyes. “I know you want to let us in” she said in a soft tone. “Don’t we look nice? We don’t need an invitation now do we?” Adla said, as the man mumbled back “No, you don’t need an invitation, please, come in.” He said.

They walked through arm and arm, and then took their place alongside a wall.

“You stay here, I’m going to go talk around and get some answers” Adam said.

“Stay in sight, I can help you out telepathically, I know you’re going to need it. What name are you going to go by?” Adla replied.

“How about? Adam Sharp?” Adam replied.

“Don’t you think that’s a little close to our real name? Smith?” Adla replied.

“Nah, its a cool name, it sounds smooth” He replied. She just rolled her eyes as she motioned him to go on, because she really didn’t want to be there in the first place.

“Hello sir” Adam said walking up to the first person he saw and shook hands.

“Hello young man” he replied, “My name is Jeff”

“Nice to meet you Jeff, I’m Adam, Adam Sharp” He said confidently dipping his hat.

“I haven’t seen you around the company” Jeff said.

“Well, that’s because I was invited by my, sister’s, husband’s second cousin who works here… I don’t really remember his name, but he told me to come and see if I would want a job here because there was an opening.”

“I didn’t think their was an opening” Jeff replied, “but it’s nice that you’re here.”

“Thanks Jeff”

“No problem, heck, if you want, I can introduce you to some people who can tell you about the company and can help you decide if you want a job here.”

“I’d love that! Thank you so much”

Adla just stood against the wall and shaking her head because he was doing so well and gave him a smirk, and as he walked away he gave her a two thumbs up and smiled. Adla rolled her eyes and smiled at the ground. She watched her brother for awhile, then watched all the other people, and all the fancy people dance and mingle.

They all look so happy and normal.

“Hi, I’m Isaac” the brown haired blue eyed, tan boy walked up to Adla. He was tall and strong.

“Hello Isaac, I’m Adla” She said glancing up at his eyes, then looked back at the crowd dancing.

“Would you like to dance?” he asked still looking at her. “I don’t know how, I probably wouldn’t be any good”

“Come on, give it a try.” Isaac said nudging her.

“Okay” she gave in.

He took her hand and they got on the dance floor.

“Now put your right hand with mine, and put your left hand up on my shoulder.” he instantly took his position on the dance floor. “Now, move your right foot back as I step forward. Then bring your left foot around like so and make an ‘L’ shape. Then step forward with your left foot and do the opposite action. And just keep going making that rectangle.”

As he was explaining it she was already being able to lift her eyes up to him and dance smoothly.

“Okay, now we’re coming out for the spin” and he twirled her as her dress flared out elegantly catching the light.

“See, you’re a natural, as well as beautiful” He said looking down and smiling at Adla.

Going back to the original waltz position.

“So why are you here?” She asked.

“My parents work here, and they drug me along because they want me to work here too.”

“Oh, what is this company about anyways?”

“I hear its a company that works with children that are different to better their minds, and it has different levels to it and stuff. They also give them a chanse to live a normal life, one of the levels of employee is someone who takes the kids and gives them a life, but I hear they bounce around”

“Why have I never heard about this before?”

“I heard my parents talking at nights, it’s a secret organization, because sometimes people come after the kids because they don’t believe with the company.”

“Oh, where do they find the kids?”

“Anywhere and everywhere, sometimes they are just donated.”

“That’s insane”

“Yeah, that’s why I don’t want to work here, it’s too weird”

The song ended, and he dipped her. He put his hands on her waist gently and she put her arms around his neck.

“After this, do you want to stay in touch?” Isaac asked.

“Yeah, I’d like that.” Adla replied and smiled. He pulled her close and they danced.

Adam on the other hand wasn’t doing as good. He was just having fun socializing with all the guys he forgot about the mission. He was actually offered a job.

Today is the 15th annual celebration of the day I was born. In all honestly I don’t like celebrating my birthday. I don’t know why. I don’t like doing huge things or being celebrated in that way but I appreciate it when I wake up to all my friends on snapchat saying Happy Birthday. So yeah. I don’t know what to say. Last year was the year that I learned who I was and all about myself, and as I get older I will continue to grow and evolve with an open mind.
