“Let my dad help you!” the little blond screamed tugging at her leg. “Listen, your dad has no idea what’s going on with you” she responded, running her hands through the child’s golden locks. “He couldn’t possibly tell you how you managed to create me” The older Maya walked to the edge of the window sill slowly lifting.
“Well then talk to Jean, or Alexandra; they can help you, but you can’t keep leaving out the window…one night someone will see you!” little Maya warned, now a resident of the Hellfire Academy.
“I keep telling you, no one can read your mind unless you allow them too…its immunity” she said, getting ready to take off. “Alexandra is a nice lady…she can help us.” She didn’t reply she simply shot off into the air clearing the school without anyone so much as glancing at her.
Her goldenrod hair wavered in her own sonic boom; “She’s so young, no one will ever be able to understand what we go through” she said, to herself getting lost in Maya’s latent thoughts. As the city begin to cut through the cumulonimbus clouds; she descended towards the river.
The water broke away as she sped over it; her mind being plagued by thoughts of an overlord taking over her home world. “I was so young…” she said, having a flashback of her mother fleeing the authorities.
“LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOK OUTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTT!” Someone screamed, snapping the blonde from her vision. “Jesus!” she screamed, slamming face first into an 18 wheeler and resurfacing through the trailer.
Hitting the ground hard, she rolled to a stop before rising to a single knee. Wincing in pain, she glanced around the area to see all types of eyes on her. A brave news reporter rushed to her side, sticking the microphone in front of her face; Maya jerked her head back a bit surprised.
“Excuse me Sha, did you arrive to help the mayor?” the small framed woman asked, once again giving her the microphone.
“Wait...Sha? I haven’t actually thought of a…” she tilted her head to the huge jumbo-tron around them; all of them called her Sha.
“…sha’s fine I guess”
She whispered somewhat disappointed. “What the mayor needs my help?” she backtracked. “Yes he summoned you this morning, but this is the first we’ve seen of you all night” the woman said, again shifting the microphone on her face.
“I didn’t know, I guess I should get on that” without warning Maya’s shot up into the air, sending a fury of wind and debris spiraling in the aftermath.
“Hey! You’re going the wrong way!” she screamed.
“Crap…” she said, making a swift U-turn before heading the opposite way. Guliani hadn’t been the biggest fan of hers since her debut, but what she was doing in Hell’s Kitchen was impressive.
Landing on the balcony of his home, she folded her hands, after knocking on the door. “Oh you finally decided to show up…” he said, gesturing for her to come in.
The young teen walked in to see the mayor’s assistant holding something that made her head hurt. Slowly clutching her head, she tried her best to suppress a latent memory; one that even her mind had forgotten.
“This device, will take you far away from here; I pray that one day we will meet again my daughter”
“Are you ok…” he asked, jarring her from her vision. “?My daughter was sucked into some type of wormhole” he said, pressing a button.
A huge hole opened and a forceful wind pushed through the building knocking various items on the floor. “It’s a wormhole generator…it’s actually mine” Maya said, taking the device in hand. “It seems the coordinates have been changed.”
She explained, looking back at both the mayor and his wife; she couldn’t figure out what all this had to do with her.
“I hope you don’t expect me to go through this wormhole looking for a child…lost IN SPACE” her eyebrow instinctively rose, she knew this was exactly what they were asking. “The reward would be substantial, besides you wouldn’t be going alone” He said, pressing the button making the portal appear.
“Who else is going with me?” she asked, picking up the movement of another person in the vicinity.
