The Telepathy Twins: Chapter #11

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.




The Telepathy Twins: Chapter #10

“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.


The Telepathy Twins: Chapter #9

It was finally dark enough. On the streets of a rich upscaled stores, every one of them was closed.

“Time to go shopping” Adam said to Adla with a smirk on his face, hoping it would cheer her up. She just returned a smile and looked forward. Knowing that, that was all the response he was going to get out of her, still smirking he looked to the door of the first upscaled rich store. He just stood there, on the street with Adla beside him, staring at the door. A minute later, you could hear clicking noises. As the tumblurs of the lock started to open up, and as the key pad inside the building started rewiring itself. Then the next thing you know the door cracks open.

Adla walks into the room cracking the door open.

“Wow” Adla said with her jaw completely dropped. Never had Adam ever seen Adla with such an expression of excitement and overwhelming happiness. She slowly approached a little black dress. Sleeves of golden lace, with a sweetheart neckline with rippling and flowing bottom. She turned around and smiled at her brother.

“I can’t” she said. “I don’t deserve this. It’s so amazing, and beautiful, I can’t Adam”

“You can, and you will” Adam replied tying a tie around his forehead like he was going to a rock concert.

“Maybe try the snap on tie champ.” Adla responded sarcastically.

“Whatever, go ahead, try it on!” Adam replied cheerfully pointing to the female dressing rooms.

“Okay, I will” Adla said with a smile.

Meanwhile while Adla was trying on the dress, Adam was looking at suits. He was checking out everything there was in the store. Being careful not to leave too much of a trace. He wasn’t looking for trouble, so he didn’t take any money, he just needed a suit.

Adla came out of the dressing room. Adam smiled from ear to ear. How she looked in that dress was absolutely breathtaking, and Adam was so happy he could provide for his sister like their parents, and like how Chase did once before. Adla smiled, and Adam returned it. She walked over to the full length mirror and twirled.

“What do you think?” she asked.

“You look beautiful Adla” he said in a soft protective tone.

“Thanks” she said with a big smile on her face. “Now, it’s time for you to get your fancy on.” Adla said looking Adam over at his torn up T-shirt, and his worn out shoes. She quickly glanced at the things that the men’s section had to offer and selected a pair of pants, a shirt, and a bow tie. “Now go and try that on” Adla said pointing him to the dressing room with a smirk on her face. Adam returned the look with a smile.

Adla was looking over all the things the store had to offer. She also selected a shiny pair of shoes, a sleek blazer with suspenders, and a fedora to go with Adam’s outfit.

Two minutes later, Adam came out of the dressing room with his clothes all twisted.

“I don’t know what I’m doing” Adam said looking down at his clothes. Adla just smiled, and told him to tuck his shirt into his pants, as she tied his bowtie, and fixed his hair. She threw the shoes on the ground, and handed him the jacket. Once Adam seemed well adjusted, Adla took the fedora from behind her back and placed it swiftly and angled upon his head.

“Dang Adla” He said looking at himself in the mirror, “I look good” he said. Adla just rolled her eyes. “Well now that we’re looking fly, let’s head to the party” Adam said looking down at Adla.

“Oh yeah, we’re still doing that” Adla mumbled under her breath.

“Yeah, we are, we need and deserve answers Adla” he said, and she nodded as a sign of agreement.

Before they left Adam swept the place of fingerprints, set the alarm and everything back up again the way it was before. As they walked away towards the party.

The Telepathy Twins: Chapter #8

It was pitch black. The twins could barely see what was in front of them if it wasn’t for the flickering lamp post outside. They left at 5am. The sun hadn’t lived yet. They packed up and they left to anywhere.

Where are we going Adla asked Adam telepathically.

“We’re going to Tucson, Arizona”

“Isn’t that where we were almost kidnapped to?!” Adla asked.

“Yep, I want answers, and I want them now” Adam said looking straight forward.

“Adam, we don’t even know where Tuscon is or what we’re looking for?” Adla said jumping in front of Adam trying to stop him in his tracks.

“Yes, we do have a clue. I heard something from that trucker that tried to kidnap us he works for a company or something called W.A.L.K.” Adam said looking into Adla’s eyes.

“What does that even mean?” Adla asked looking at Adam.

“I don’t know, but while we were checking into that hotel I saw a pamphlet with the same acronym on it” he said waving it in her line of vision.

“Have you read it yet?” Adla asked.

“Yep, and it turns out that W.A.L.K is having a company party at this fancy hotel in Tucson, and we’re gong.” Adam said bluntly.

“Oh yeah hot shot, the two kids that they’ve been trying to get their hands on are just going to show up and we’re gonna ask them for the job? Adam, you need to have a plan.” She said.

“I do” Adam replied. “The party doesn’t start until 10pm, so come night time we go shopping” he replied looking at Adla with a smirk on his face.

“How?” she asked him with a stern look on her face.

“Easy! You’re the girl that can not only talk to me through your mind but you can also persuade people remember! And I can move things with my mind… say a dress off a manakin and picking a lock to get it out” He replied with full confidence.

“I remember I have the power of persuasion, although I tried to forget after the last insedent Adam” Adla replied to him sternly.

“Yes I remember the incident but you’re not 5 like you were before, and your persuasion is only a backup plan! Besides it’s not like you’re gonna make mom and dad get almost divorced again.” He replied still fulfilled with his idea.

“They never got divorced Adam, and I told you to never bring that up” Adla answered him with a tinge of anger behind her voice.

“Okay, okay, I’m sorry Adla. I’ll never bring it up again. But are you okay with the plan?”

“I don’t know how I feel about getting answers and stuff, but I know I can’t control you but you also need me to make you realize your stupidity, so I’ll do it.” She said letting out a huge sigh.

“Yes!, Thanks Adla, you won’t regret it!” Adam replied saying while jumping up and down.

“I’m sure I will” Adla responded letting out a small smile of relief.




Chapter Reviews #2

Hi guys, so… it’s been two months since I’ve written a chapter of The Telepathy Twins. I realize I also have some new followers since then to, which is totally cool.

Brief overview:

The Telepathy Twins is a story about two twins with powers. Adam and Adla. They’ve been through alot together, constantly moving since they were little kids takes a tole on a person. But it also bonds these two siblings together. Ever since the death of their close family friend, they’ve been forced to scatter to different places together and finding more about themselves, their powers, and their background. They meet up with various people along the way too that shapes them into who they are.

Sooooooo, yeah.

In the last chapter, Adla and Adam leave Bert, a kind man that took the kids in, and gave them some money for working with them, and made their way to a motel. Using their powers to get in they finally get some peace before they’re on the move again.

The Telepathy Twins: Chapter #7

“I think it’s bout’ time you kids enrolled in school!” Bert yelled walking into the little closet that Adam and Adla had called home for the past month.

“Morning’ Bert” Adam responded as cheerful and happy as ever.

“Yall hear me?” He asked. “I think it’s bout’ time you kids went to school” he repeated himself.

In a soft tone “yes, we heard you the first time Bert” Adla responded.

“Well, yer minors and you’ve been here a month, it’s bout time you went to school” Bert said. “I already took the liberty in buying you yer things, as he handed both of them backpacks. “Ya know where the high school is, you’ve seen it before, go up to the main office, and…”

“We’ve been to high school before Bert” Adam cut in.

We’re ditching Adla spoke to Adam telepathically.

“Well, yall will be off now, it starts soon, I think”

Before they left Bert had a nice greasy home cooked breakfast waiting for them. Adla hugged him and said thanks for everything he had done, because those would be the goodbyes of the twins.

They walked out heading out of sight of Bert. They appreciated everything he did for them, and after a month the twins had learned that bert was a kind man who wanted kids but his wife died during giving birth killing both her and the child. That’s probably why he was so great with them. Despite their past he never asked questions and never tried to force them to do something they didn’t want to do, but legally to stay there they had to go to school, and within a month talk went around the small town they were in that the twins were staying there.

Around noon they both started getting more hungry, but instead of going into a place to eat they went into a motel for a place to stay.

“Hey” The guy behind the desk said. He had the blood shot eyes of a smoker, and there was weed next to the cash register. His shirt was dirty and torn. He had a half shaved beard and bad breath. His Metallica t-shirt was torn, sweaty, and stained. Despite all of that, they twins needed a place to stay.

I don’t know Adla spoke to Adam. He glanced at her and took a step forward towards the man behind the counter.

“We need a place to stay” Adam said.

“No shit” the man behind the desk said. “Fine, we have some rooms, you pay when you’re done with your stay. ID’s?” the man asked.

“Oh yes” Adam responded. Adla just stood still behind them. They stood their for a second as the man’s wallet started wiggling.

“You got your ID’s or what kid” he asked.

“Yes sir” Adam replied. The man behind the desk looked disgusted by his manners. The wallet came out of the pocket of the man, and the man behind the desk never noticed. Adam took the wallet into his hands and took out the ID.

“Huh I have a wallet just like that” The man behind the desk said while glaring at him. Adam handed him the ID and the credit card. When Adam handed the man the ID he covered the picture and the man never suspected a thing.

“Looks legit man” and he handed the twins the keys. Just as they were leaving the main office of the hotel to their rooms, Adam popped back into the office and said “Have a nice day” and in an instant without the man behind the desk noticing, the wallet went back to the man’s pocket.

The kids opened up the room of the little motel and Adam said looking at Adla “Hope you enjoy your free stay”. They laughed and walked in.

Adla threw a pillow at Adam “You idiot that could have gone so wrong!” she said while laughing, but tried to stay serious.

“But it didn’t” he said smirking at her “and besides, you said to only use our powers during emergencies, and I think this was a pretty big emergency.” he said.

“Okay fair point” She said flopping on the bed smiling.

“There’s only one bed” Adam pointed out. Adla looked at him, then looked at the ground, then looked up at him again, then pointed on the ground. They hung out in their room watching TV for awhile, and they waited until 10:00pm to order their linner. They decided that it would be best if they ordered dinner at night when it was dark so that the people bringing the dinner couldn’t really see them, and they ordered a lot of food being that they hadn’t’ eaten anything but the greasy diner food.

As time started going by it started to get to be 1:00am and Adam was on the ground making his bed, and Adla was laying on her bed comfortably, just watching Full House. They then turned off the TV deciding that they should get more sleep, because they were going to leave tomorrow morning before the sun came up.

The room was silent, all the lights were out. Adla was cuddled up in her blanket, and Adam was currled up on the ground.

“Hey Adam” she Adla whispered in a soft tone.

“Yes Adla?” Adam responded with his face against the floor.

“Adam we can’t stay here, and we can’t run for the rest of our lives. When we leave what are we going to do?”

“I don’t know Adla, we kind of have to make it up as we go, but if you ask me, I think we have to figure out who is tracking us, who killed our parents, and who killed Chase, who tried to kidnap us, I think only then will we figure out what we are, because you know it Adla, we’re not human” he responded.


“Yeah Adla”

“I love you”

“I love you too”

The Telepathy Twins: Chapter #6

Day broke through the window. The twins had no clue what time it was. Adam was awake, watching over everything, and Adla was sleeping on a sack of flour. Not the best place ever, but for them it was a new sort of home. They had slept in a small closet with all sorts of bags, Bert said he didn’t have a an extra room for them. Despite the digs, they had amazing food for living in a diner.

Adam eventually woke Adla up. “Hey, good morning sunshine” Adam spoke to her in a soft tone while nudging her to wake up.

“Hey” she said in a grouchy tone, “so our entire life wasn’t just a dream, it’s a real thing, great.”

“Glad I can count on you to be there with sarcasm” Adam responded. She just rolled her eyes, they got out of the little room they were in, and came into the diner where Bert had breakfast waiting for them.

“Good mornin’ kids” Bert said when he saw their tired faces. “Once you’re done with dinner I already got your chores lined up for ya” he followed up.

“Okay, thanks again” Adla responded changing her tone for the sake of whom she was speaking to.

Bert left to check up on other things while the two twins sat there eating their meal in silence. Adla spoke to Adam telepathically no use of powers today, I know that is hypocritical because I am using them now, but do nothing to give away our position. In between chewing, Adam nodded.

The kids finished their meals and Adla went to go find Bert about their chores.

“Say, you must be the brains of this operation, you always seem to be the one doin’ the talking” Bert said while staring Adla down.

“Adam strives to be the strong and silent type, but it doesn’t exactly work” Adla responded. They laughed for a second, but then a bit of silence lingered.

“Well, what was your name again?” Bert asked.

“Adla”, she responded politely.

“I’ll have mercy on you since you are the brains of the operation and start you off with cleaning the dishes, but your brother has to clean out the bathrooms” Bert responded.

Adla giggled for a moment. A greasy truck stop diner, and Adam had to clean the bathroom of it.

They immediately got to work, at least Adla did, Adam did as much as he could before he needed to step outside for oxygen.

Adla and Adam both finished around noon, well, their are two bathrooms at the diner, and Adam had only finished one. Adla somehow managed to clean the two foot tall monster of dishes with half eaten food and stains on them. She figured those were all the dishes this place had. The lower and lower she got to digging in the pile, Adla discovered that Bert probably hadn’t done the dishes in about a month.

For the rest of the day Adam cleaned the second bathroom, and Adla was promoted to working on the cash register.

“Hey hottie” A boy said. He looked about Adla and Adam’s age (17). He was about 5’6 with fiery red hair. Red eyebrows and a red goatee. He was skinny to the bone, and when he walked in everyone turned. A popular kid. Adla thought to herself. A rude popular kid. He approached the cash register with his arms sweeping behind him trying to look cool.

“So hottie” he said looking Adla over. “You’re new aren’t you? Well, you must be from Tennessee, because you’re the only ten I see.” He continued. The rest of the diner just watched with amazement on the edge of their seats to see if the new girl would be the first girl to turn him down.

“Un, no, and unlike the people here, your ignorance is not appealing to me, but do you want to order something?” She replied. The boy had a confused look on his face as if he did not understand most of what she said, but he still continued with his harassed come back.

“Yeah, I’d like to order you on my table” He said. Adla’s face went red. This had never happened before and she didn’t know what to do. Adam Help!! She sent a message to her brother. Before the boy could open his mouth again Bert came walking out of the kitchen smelling like grease and sweat. Bert standing straight in front of the boy was towering over him with his arms crossed he looked down at the boy, then looked at Adla.

“Honney, is this boy giving you trouble?” Bert asked.

“Uh, I just feel kind of uncomfortable” Adla responded. Adam rushed out of the bathroom smelling like, well crap.

“What happened?! Are you okay?!” He said huffing and puffing for fresh air.

“Yeah, I’m okay” Adla responded.

“Because Matt here was just leaving” Bert said moving his point of vision from the twins to the fiery boy.

“Fine, but I’ll remember this” He said.

“I hope you do” Bert replied. The boy left. Adla’s face was still red like a tomato.

“Adla, are you okay, do you need to take a break?” Adam asked.

“Yes, yes, I’m quite fine now, stop smothering me, I’m fine to keep working” she replied to Adam, then looked up “Thank you Bert”. The rest of the diner went back to eating their food unimpressed.

“Yes, thank you” Adam added.

“Anny time kids, and if that ever happens again, just give me a holer, this is a small town, and some of the boys here think they can go and own everything around here that’s new.” Bert subtly warned the kids.


Midnight. The kids sat outside the diner just looking at the stars. Bert offered to clean up the rest of the restaurant for that night. Their was a soft cool breeze, that filled the warm air, as the twins looked up at the stars, and at the full harvest moon that lit up the night. Thank you Adam, but you must stop smothering me all the time. He looked at her, then looked at the stars, nodded, then smiled.

Chapter Reviews

So, I understand the fact that I have written a bunch of stories off and on, and over time I surprisingly have gained subscribers and followers. I normally write a chapter for the sories every other week… if I can. The two stories I have right now are The Telepathy Twins, and It Girl.

It Girl:

It Girl is the story of Skyler the shy cello playing girl that keeps it safe, but lets her emotions out on paper, and Annabelle, the rebellious lonely girl that hides all her pain. These two bumped into each other once but it didn’t entirely go well. In the second and third chapters we learn about the characters, and how they feel inside. Towards the fourth chapter the two of them start to collide in each other’s world again, being that they haven’t seen each other since. We also find that Skyler is a girl of high anxiety, and has a crush too.

At this point if you can’t tell something has to do with the two girls, Skyler and Annabelle, but you have to continue to read to find out the hell high school puts them through.

The Telepathy Twins:

It was suggested by my good friend JoJo to write this story. A story of a telepathic girl and a telekinetic boy, and brother and sister. I love this story, so the two of them always travel, because they can’t stay in one place for long. They traveled with their uncle Chase, the only person that knew their secret when they traveled to Arizona something happened to him. The twins are 17 but still technically minors, and even they don’t know the secret of what is wrong with themselves. They caught a ride from a man who turned out to be an agent sent to kidnap them. Now they are staying at a diner with a man who is giving them a roof over their heads in exchange for labor in the diner. They have no idea what makes them special, but they have no clue who to trust.

I will encourage you to read my past chapters to understand and to keep up with my stories. I post Short Story Mondays, and Photography Fridays. I usually post It Girl chapters every other week on Short Story Mondays, and I normally like to tell The Telepathy Twins stories with my original photography so I post chapters every other week on Photography Fridays. I wish you happy reading, and if you could like and subscribe to my blog, and comment bellow ideas for the next chapters and comment bellow what content you want to see.

So, I guess I’ll catch ya on the flip side.


The Telepathy Twins: Chapter Four

“On the run like renegades” Adam said with a smile.

“That’s not exactly something to be excited about Adam” Adla replied with a stern look on her face. “This isn’t a X Ambassadors song Adam” she followed up. Adam tried to cover up how scared scared he was, because he knew his sister was stubborn, and as much as he’d like to protect his sister, he knew it was her who was much better at protecting him.

“What is up with all of this?! We have these weird ass powers we have no clue how to use, and ever since we started playing with them when we were little kids we’ve been having to move from place to place every time something weird happens!. Now these crazy guys are after us!” Adla was screaming she was breaking down, and starting to shake.

Adam held her before she could fall, and held her tight until she stopped shaking, when he moved his arm from around her, he realized his arm was soaked with tears.

“It’s okay Adla, we’re gonna figure this all out, it’s okay, it will all be okay, we’re together that’s all that matters.” Adam said in a calm sweet voice.

Adla just nodded, trying to convince herself all would be okay.

No money,  no place to sleep, no idea where they are, both minors… with superhuman powers. All they knew was that they were somewhere in Texas. So before it got too dark they got to a nearby alleyway where they were able to curl up into each other and sleep. Turns out Texas isn’t too hot or too cold at night.


“Adam, ADAM!” Adla shreeked.

Barely waking up “What is it Adla, I hope you realize that the sun isn’t even up yet.” Adam said.

“I hear a noise Adam!” She screamed again.

“It’s probably nothing” He responded. “Go back to sleep”

Adla just curled up even tighter onto Adam’s chest. She tried to sleep, once again she was crying, but didn’t know.


“What just happened?!” Adam yelled because the piercing scream woke him from his deep sleep.

“I, I, I’m sorry Adam, I just, I…”

“It’s okay Adla, was it a nightmare?” He asked.

“Yes, uh, sorry, I, I just had a dream that you got killed by those men like Chase did” She said trembling.

“It’s okay Adla, I guess it’s early enough, let’s go ahead and get started” Adla responded.

“Get started going where?” She asked.

“I figure the best thing we can do is start heading back to Arizona” He said.

Adla nodded, as they got up and started walking.

They knew they couldn’t trust anyone, but at the same time, they needed to ask people where to go. Most people would rely on the signs, but as they continued to walk, they noticed that most were punctured with bullet holes.


“I am so tired” Adla stated.

“Maybe because we only got two hours of sleep Adla” He said in the most sassy tone.

“Do you have any food?” She asked.

“Only the flesh and skin I have on me, maybe if we go back to the alley you can find a rat to cook” He said smirking.

“Pass” She said.

Hours passed by. Nobody asked, but everybody stared as they walked through town in these horribly smelling rags. As noon started to set in Adam decided to stop through a small diner to ask about directions.

“Uhm, Hello” Adam said as Adla somewhat hid behind him.

“Howdy, man is that you that smells bad?” The man behind the counter asked.

“Probably, we were wondering how you could get to Arizona?” Adam asked.

“Where Arizona?” The man asked.

“Just Arizona” Adam replied.

The man was big, fat, and greasy he had a beard two inches long, and wore a hairnet on both his head and his chin. He had a scratchy voice with tinge of an accent.

“Well, for starters you turn around, because you’re heading in the wrong direction.” The man told Adam.

“Oh, okay, thanks” Adam replied.

“You kids got any parents?” He asked.


“No, we’re both adults” He lied. “We’re just going on a trip for fun, but our friends dropped us off here, but we have nowhere to go, but we know our friends are in Arizona.” He lied again.

“Well, how about this I’ll give you lunch on the house, and let you crash here for a few days if y’all will work for me. I need someone to sweep the place, and clean the bathrooms. Them truckers just let it all out after they have my famous breakfast burritos.” The man said.

Somewhat traumatized Adam said “If you don’t mind we’ll think it over.”

“Okay, well, you can think it over some burgers and fires, on the house.” The man responded.

“Oh, no, we have no money, we can’t accept that” Adla spoke up.

“You can little lady, that’s what on the house means, you don’t have to pay.” The man said as the twins took a seat.

They chose a seat furthest away from anyone around.

Almost instantly Adam said “I think we should do it”.

Adla just looked at him trying to keep her voice down “What the hell, are you crazy?!”

“Maybe, but that’s not the point here.” Adam said as stern and stubborn as usual.

“Do you remember the last time we trusted someone?! He kidnapped us, remember stupid.” Adla responded while smacking him upside the head.

“Okay, okay, but where else do we have to go?” Adam responded, but he brought up a very good point.

“Fine, but I’m not telling him.” Adla responded, not happy but they had nothing else.

“Just in case don’t use your powers around him, but if you need to tell me anything important send me a mind message. I am not planning on trusting this guy, but we need the cash and food. Okay?” He asked.

She nodded. That’s all that had to be said.

“Howdy kids, here’s the burgers” he placed the two burgers and the side of fries on the table overwhelming with grease, and the burgers were bigger than the two kid’s faces. “Have you thought about the offer?”

“Yes, Mr.? What’s your name exactly?” Adam asked.

“Bert, Bert McDoogal” He responded.

“Well, Mr. McDoogal, yeah, we decided we would take up your offer” Adam responded.

“Well then once you’re done with the burgers then we’ll get started, and by the way, don’t call me Mr. McDoogal, the name is Bert.” He said, nodded his head then left.

Adla and Adam looked at each other and drowned their worries in huge burgers.
