I look at Cora’s body slowly falling to the floor as if it is in a movie. The blood is pulsing in my head and I feel the urge. This urge is uncommon for me, but I immediately realize what is going on. These two days of training that I spent with Ivor were not useless. I squeeze the table and my knuckles become white. I try to calm down. I order myself to breathe, but the feeling is unstoppable. I hold my breath for a second, close my eyes, and I hope it’s not too late.
After I’ve heard Cora’s thought I couldn’t prevent myself from digging further. And apparently I dug too deep inside her mind, so that it knocked her off. Someone is looking after me. This thought is driving me mad. How dare? And what is more, how could I let myself believe that I’m safe and no one is spying on me. I am from Ten, and I understand Cora’s frustration and tension, when she saw me. Cora seemed to be a nice person, and I even feel sorry for her. I know she is just unconscious because her mind was struggling hard not to give away all the information I was searching for. She will be alright. But will I?
My attempt to control my new abilities lead to the opposite. I am losing it. The walls of the room around me are pressing my inner view, squeezing me. The world suddenly feels so small. I reach the phone and realize that I don’t need to dial the number because now I know how to call him without it.
“Ivor… The Energy – ” I whisper, but I’m unable to finish my sentence. I don’t hear if he responds, but I don’t need to know. I’m sure he understood. The feeling reminds me of my 16-year-old story. “The explosion” is that how I refer to it. I was madly in love with a person I barely knew. Long story short. I saw that guy with someone else, and this feeling was overwhelming. I was unaware how dangerous it could be, but I was trying to hold everything inside. That same evening, all these feeling turned into something else. Like a wave of anger, fear, and offence, it all mixed together and started pressing me from the inside. We were at a party that day and I ran away from everyone. I felt like an overly blown balloon that consequently blew up. And Ivor was the first one who picked me up from the ground the next morning.
Black dots start to appear blocking my vision. I try hard to concentrate so that I won’t give myself away completely. No one should know that I’m a One. They must not know it.
