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.
