All of a sudden I shiver, the kind of shiver that makes me know I’m being watched. I look around to find the reason for the hair on my arms standing to attention. Across the room is the tall, dark outline of a man. Lights flash over him, illuminating electric blue eyes, making me think of lightning. I feel the power in them as strong as thunder. He sees me watching him and moves forward.
Straight for me.
Cold air rushes up at me, and I think this is the end. I shouldn’t have trusted Colt. Surprisingly I don’t think of Max, but of my father in the last few seconds of my life. Why didn’t he prepare me better? Maybe give me some pDNA injections, anything, so I could’ve better protected Max. Now I’ve failed because I’m normal.
The thoughts are bitter, and I can taste them in my mouth. A horrible thing before you die.

“Stop!” a man shouts. He runs towards us. Two more appear behind him.
Jenna reaches a hand down. “Grab it!”
Colt takes hold and she easily lifts him out. They are all so strong.
“Go up, Sage,” Anthony says. “I’ve got these guys.”
He’s holding the same dagger I’d had in my hand earlier.
“I’m not leaving you alone,” I say.
“Three guys is nothing. I’ll be fine. Go.”
I look up toward where my brother sits waiting for me and then back at Anthony.
“Stop right there and we’ll let you live,” a guard says. He has a single spike sticking out of his otherwise bald head.
“Don’t listen to him Sage,” Anthony says. “You’re too valuable. Just go before they capture Max again.”
This makes me move. I scramble up the ladder. When I’m at the top, I shout down, “Come on! You can make it.”
He stares up at me through the narrow opening and smiles. “Change the world,” he says just as an invisible blast knocks him to the ground.
