The girl and and her brother had to flee. Strangers in a strange place once again. This is the fifteenth time they had found themselves fleeing again. It’s always for different reasons, this time someone got too close. They have been to fifteen out of all fifty states in the United States of America. The girl’s name was Adla and the boy’s name was Adam. Twins in fact. If you don’t believe in telepathy, you do when you meet these two. trouble just seems to follow them like a shadow wherever they walked. it was never harm by choice, but their was an incident where people died at Adla and Adam’s hands.
It’s always a mysterious trouble that follows these two, never anything normal.
This is a view of what Adla saw outside her passenger side mirror as their uncle drove them out of California, never to return.
“Where are we going?” Adla asked. “That’s for me to know and you to find out” replied Chase. “So we’ll find out if you tell us” Adam said responding in a snarky tone. “Too bad I’m not telling you” said Chase. Under their breath you could hear the twins groan.
Adla just stared out the window as they passed by mountains, livestock, powder marshmallow clouds, and miles and miles of dead grass. But Adam on the other hand could not keep his sanity, he scrambled to untangle his ear buds. The only way to pass the time and keep the demons at bay.
“Home sweet home boys and girls!” Chase yelled so loud that our neighbours could hear him… if we had anny. “Not much of a home” replied Adam. Can’t blame him, I mean they were about to move into a house an hour away from town with a broken window and so much dust on the floor it looked about an inch thick!
Adla just looked at her brother and told him without even moving her lips that she didn’t want to be here.
“Want some dinner? If we head out to town now it won’t get too dark soon.” said Chase. “Yeah, town’s only an hour away” said Adam. “Look guys, I am trying to do the very best I can the human race isn’t all it’s cracked up to be and we both know that you two telepathy twins aren’t human.”
Adla just took her one bag of things and took it to a suitable room where she sat in a room, got a sketchbook out and a pencil and started to sketch. She was sketching a place far away, but in the corner of the picture in the shadow of the cloud in the sky you could see a face, and it wasn’t a pleasant one either.
Adam walked in and knocked on Adla’s open room door.”How are you feeling?” Adam asked. Adla looked up at her brother’s pale face and told him that she was quite shook but did not utter a move. “Your telepathy should not be a way to run away from your feelings” said Adam. “What feelings?” Adla said. As Adam walked out of her room closing the toor behind him with such a gentle touch. In fact, he didn’t even touch the door when he closed it, he moved it with is mind,
Adla and Adam were sent down to town to go get some food. In such a rural place like where they were at, the only restaurant there was a place where grease was a vital part of every piece of food they served. It would have been a two hour long torturing silent drive from town to home if it wasn’t for Adam’s playlists.
“I just want us to be normal” Adam said, “but that will never happen, so if we can’t be normal I just want us, want you Adla to feel okay.”
Adla looked at Adam and transferred a message through his mind and said it’s okay that I’m not okay.
Once they got home Adam kicked the door open as Adla silently followed holding the bag of greasy junk food. “Honey we’re home!” Adam yelled. No reply. “Chase?!” Adla screamed, and Adla’s not the type to scream because she could sense that something was wrong. They walked into the room that Chase was starting to settle into where he was going to make it his own, but sadly was unable because he had been shot. Bullet to the head. “What could have possibly happened?” said Adla aloud. With tears in her eyes she said it again in a louder screeching tone here you can feel the tears in her eyes as she asked the question. “What happened?!”
There was a note on his chest. It said you are unwanted as Adam too could feel a tear well up in his eyes. Only after fifteen minutes of their arrival their truck got shot. Adam went to go see what had happened. The shot blew the breaks off. Adam came back in, opening the door with his mind and mentally started gathering close and other important items he had just struggled with unpacking not too long ago. While Adla was mourning Adam was packing up her things too.
Adam came in trainkwilly and put his hand on Adla’s shoulder and told her it was time to go. As she spoke to him in his head, we can’t just leave him here.
So adam took the risk and took him outside where they buried Chase. Risking the chance of being shot. They had no clue where to go, they just knew they had to leave.
Luckily for both of them Adla could also talk to animal’s minds, so she was able to gain the trust of a horse named Dimond relatively quickly. They calmly walked out off the property trying not to make a sound, but with the two of them riding bareback on one horse with a bag with their things you could not be exactly running at full speeds. Adam was still listening to his music even in this hour of destress. And Adla just tried to stay calm as they rode out. It was now about four pm in the afternoon, they were almost out of the mountains so they decided to let Dimond go free, where some rancher would find him safe.
The telepathy twins somehow found themselves wandering into Dillonvale where they found an old pay phone.They have absolutely nothing, but they still scrounged up enough money to call for a cab, even if they can’t pay for one. God have mercy on their souls, if they have one.
