“Not that humans don’t get sick when they ride those, but you just seem more like we did the first time we got off one of them,” she explained picking up one of his bags. “I’ll help you with those,” she added. “Oh and if you’d like something for the nausea, I have some pills in my dorm.”
Thalia and Jet entered the school grounds. Many other students were running around, doing what they normally did; some even exercising their abilities. “As for driving human vehicles, we have lessons for that and I’m pretty sure they’re mandatory, so you get your wish,” she flashed him a bright smile, trying to ease him up a little. She remembered how strange this had all felt when she first arrived.
“As for me, well, I come from Pandora too,” Thalia said, remembering his question. “But you probably figured that out by now,” she added a smile, entering the pink building. “So, classes aren’t mandatory yet, but we do have a Science, History, English, and Defense and Ability Control teacher. Oh, keep clear from the mermaids; they can be vicious and there’s a Summer Ball on the 15th too.” She listed, hoping she hadn’t left anything out.
Her eyes, which were currently green, narrowed at the new student, who seemed to feel so troubled. Thalia glanced around to make sure no one was around. “I honestly doubt you have a nightlight,” she said gently. “Not that there’d be a problem if you did, but I’m thinking you’re more likely to be having nightmares. I understand if you prefer to keep it to yourself; it is a private matter after all. But, just so you know, at this point most of us have them too. Even if we don’t talk about them.”
Thalia picked up one of Jet’s bags on the floor “Thanks you sure are friendly.” Jet said with a smile. Thalia asked Jet If he needed some pills for his nausea, Jet said no cause he thought he just needed some sleep. Walking with Thalia around the school grounds Jet saw more kids using their powers, he didn’t feel so alone anymore. Jet chuckled when someone turned a person in to a doll, he thought that was the lamest powers he ever saw. Thalia told him about driving vehicles, and how it was mandatory to take a class before he could drive. Looking back at Jet Thalia smiled at him, Jet smiled back awkwardly not knowing what else to do. Jet had no intention in going to driving classes, he figured he would just steal a car thinking it looked easy enough that he didn’t need to learn.
They walked into a pink building while Thalia explained the classes he could take, Jet sighed at the thought of classes but thought about maybe going to ability control. Then Jet was told to keep clear of mermaids, and about Summer Ball. Telling Jet to keep clear from mermaids is like telling him mermaids are fun, Jet didn’t care to much about danger. “Summer ball sounds like fun” Jet said excited “But I wouldn’t know who to go with, since I’m new, and all.” he said disappointed.
Thalia suddenly stop the tour she stood in front of jet staring at him with her green eyes looking suspicious. Thalia then told Jet he was lying about his nightlight, and that it was OK. “But I’m thinking you’re more likely to be having nightmares.” she said gently. Jet glared at her, what do you know about nightmares mine are horrible he thought to himself. “Just so you know, at this point most of us have them too. Even if we don’t talk about them.” Thalia said. Jet still felt no one would understand, but Thalia was nice enough to help him out on his first day. “I’ll tell you but you wouldn’t understand just don’t tell anyone.” Grabbing her hand Jet took her to a room where they could be alone. “Alright sit down this could take a while.” Jet said while finding her a seat.“This dream is about a event that happened to me so lets get started.” Jet said.
Jet telling Thalia the dream: Jet at the young age of 12 already in high school skipping a grade, he wasn’t always a troublemaker in fact he never got in trouble before this. He loved school this didn’t help much with the older kids who already had their powers, they picked on Jet a lot because he hadn’t gotten his powers yet. Eating his lunch his parents made him in a empty classroom, because Jet had no friends at the high school. Cal, and Darren walked in the room two boys who loved picking on him for fun, Cal was chubby, and Darren ugly. Both of them got made fun of as much as Jet did. Cal Froze the doors shut with his powers, it was so well executed it was clear they planned it. Jet trying to run for the window fell to the ground when Darren used his telekinesis. Darren held Jet down with his Powers while Cal threw frozen snow balls at him. “Leave me alone please I didn’t do anything.” Jet cried out with tears falling down his cheek. The snowballs stung when they hit Jets face, his nose was already bleeding. Cal, and Darren laughed with amusement, and Jet had enough he took a deep breath and let out a piercing scream. Then bang everything from a mile radius was obliterated killing hundreds maybe even thousands, It was like a nuke went off in the city. Everything was covered in flames, ashes of dead bodies still upright. Laying on the floor passed out, Jet didn’t wake up until search parties came out. A man picked him up from the floor amazed that Jet only had a bloody nose. Jet was placed in the hospital just in case, his parents came right way. Jet’s parents lived 3 miles away, so they were fine just a little shook-en up. Jet woke up from his sleep hearing the screeching screams of the wounded in the hospital. Little boys, and girls crying in pain. Jet couldn’t take it he had so much guilt he went into a rage destroying everything in his room, it took 5 men to sedate him.
Jet was only 12 think of the damage he could do now that he was 17, he was a ticking time bomb. This was why Jet lived so dangerous he didn’t care for his well being, he thought if he died it would be better for everyone. No one knew how it felt he can lose his love ones, and it would be his fault. The dreams made it worst they reminded him every night he was a killing machine. Jet finished with his story put his head down, and had a sad look on his face. “So that’s the dream.” saying it with his lips trembling. Jet felt his eyes watering , he pressed his lips together swaying his head left to right to say he was no good. Jet didn’t want her to see him like this so he grabbed his bags, and ran out the room tears dropping down the floor.
