“Ok, would you rather eat 10 bugs or....walk into a lions den?” Gabrielle asks her friend Maria.
“I would eat the 10 bugs duh.”
“Gross, but I would too.”
“Throwing up is better than being mauled by lions.”
“True very true.”
“Would you rather date Lex Luthor or kill Green Lantern?” Maria asks with a smirk.
“Damn....that's a hard one....I like Green Lantern, but I rather not date Luthor....so Kill Green Lantern.”
“Ummm Ok then but I have to agree with you.”
“Hey, did you have that dream again last night?”
“Yes, I did, you?”
“Yea, but this time it was more of a nightmare.”
“Why? What happened?”
“I...I was dangling off a train, I was trying to grab some guys hand but I missed their hand and fell down into abyss. When I “woke” I had a metal arm and was ordered to kill someone,” Gabi shutters at the memory.
“Oh I’m sorry that is a nightmare, well at least you didn’t have to shoot someone point blank.”
“What is up with these dreams of ours? We have been getting them since we met in February.”
“How am I supposed to know Gabs.”
“Hey, wasn’t Katie suppose to come and meet us here?”
“Yeah where is she?”
Maria goes to the doorway to look out for their friend, when she doesn’t see her she turns back and jumps a little.
“If you are you look in a mirror”
“Say what now?”
“You mirror now!”
“Ok! I’ll use my camera,” Gabi says lifting her phone up and using the camera, “What the Hell!?!?”
“You thought of Katie and turned into her.”
“B-but how! I sound like her too!”
“Umm try to think of yourself,”
Gabi sighs and turns back into herself.
“Ok good now keep that in check.”
“How the hell did I do that? What am I?” Gabi asks looking at her hands.
“That I can not answer, but just try not to think about anyone too much. Imagine turning into your crush.”
“Oh God! No hell no!”
Maria just burst into laughter trying to picture that.
“This isn’t funny Maria!” Gabi growls, “I am a freak!”
“I’m sorry you are right,” Maria says composing herself, “You are not a freak we will figure this out.”
“How are we going to figure it out?” Gabi asks, “It's not like we can ask anyone.”
“No we can’t but we can search,” Maria says, “Hand me my laptop.”
Gabi hands Maria her laptop, what exactly is she going to do?
“Gabs come on are you really trying to figure out what I’m doing?” Maria asks look at her friend.
“No, but I am curious.”
“So am I, there has to be some mention of it somewhere some incident like this they can’t completely cover it up.”
“You gotta remember I am from Colombia so it will be harder to find. Also understand,” Gabi points out.
“Finding will not be the problem, understanding maybe,” Maria says while she stares at her computer.
Gabi watches her friend type away.
“Wait! I just saw something.”
“Where?” she asks pulling her hands away from the keyboard
“Here,” Gabi says going back to an article from a Colombian magazine, “I recognized the names in here; Maria Ostos and Ximena Ostos Hernandez.”
“Ok lets take a look at what it says maybe I can get my laptop to translate it.”
Maria is able to translate the page but it is accidentally translated into Russian.
“It says that Maria was hated by the people of Colombia because she let government agents experiment on her unborn child,” Gabi reads.
“Thats not right even more so because she was apparently doing it for money,” Maria points to the part she was reading.
“Look, there is a picture of the woman and the child,” Gabi moves down the page and her eyes widen,
“She...she looks like me.”
“Do you think that the child is you, and the experiments are why you are like this?”
“Most likely, this picture here of the child is the picture my parents got from the orphanage.”
“Well your birth mother was a joy,” Maria says still scanning the article.
“Well that explains why she gave me up, now I rather not go to Colombia.”
“Neither would I, Lets see if we can find what kind of things were done to you.”
They look over the rest of the article but there was nothing to tell exactly what they had done to Gabrielle.
“Well....that was useful,” Gabi sighs and falls back onto the couch.
“Maybe not in this article but now that we know what we are looking for.”
“Wait.....that article was in Russian, how...how did we read it?”
“Oh what fun another thing to figure out,” Maria says now frustrated.
“Is it just me or is it getting windy in here?” Gabi asks as she feels wind,but the windows are closed.
“Gabs how in the hell is that possible unless you opened up the window.”
“I never opened the windows.”
“Don’t you dare, don’t you lock me out of the website,” Maria yells at her laptop.
Gabi moves back a bit knowing not to be close to Maria when she is like this.
“You don’t want me to see something well to bad I will find out what you don’t want me to.” As Maria gets more agitated the wind picks up.
“Uh....Maria! I don’t think I am the only one with powers!” Gabi says over the wind.
“Γαμήσου όποια κυβέρνηση και αν είστε” Maria yells throwing her laptop on the bed and laying back on the floor.
“I guess Colombia wasn’t the only ones experimenting on unborn children.”
“Huh? why do you say that?” Maria says completely oblivious to what just happened.
“Wind in a room that is closed that’s what happened.”
“What I thought you were just being weird when you said it's getting windy.”
“I was being serious,” Gabi glares at her friend.
“I can control wind?” Maria says a little scared now.
“I guess so.”
“Bu-but my mom would never let people do that to me,” Maria says curling up against the couch.
“Maybe she didn’t know, I did read that in the year we were born at least 18 children were still borned which is uncommon. Maybe some people didn’t know they were experimented on.”
“Τι σε Θεούς όνομα είναι λάθος με εμάς,” Maria sighs speaking Greek again.
“I can’t understand Greek.”
“Можете ли вы понять, мне сейчас” Maria says after thinking for a minute.
“ Да, я могу,” Gabi nods.
“Well this is going to be interesting, So what other languages can we speak?”
“Um...” Gabi thinks on it, “English, Russian, German, Japanese, Spanish, Portuguese, French, Farsi and Czech.”
“Ok so I think I may got you beat because I don't know all of mine ” Maria says thinking in different Languages “It seems like “Latin, Russian, English, French, German, Chinese, and some others”
“How do we know these languages? I tried to learn Spanish before and I couldn’t understand it!” Gabi complains.
“It must have to do with whatever they did to us.”
“Hmm......” Gabi thinks and then something flashes in her mind, “I....I think they cloned people.”
“I think you are right but who is the question.”
“Who knows, but I am gonna find out.”
“Not without me,” Maria smirks at her friend.
“Good thing summer is starting soon, we can travel around to find out.”
“Sounds like a plan,” Maria sits up, “ So I take it no Katie?”
“Guess not, but it’s good thing she is not here. We need to figure this out without anyone finding
out,” Gabi says standing.
“Which means not thinking about people too much and keeping emotions in check.”
“Yep, unless I have to change. We need to get these powers under control.”
Both girls call their parents and in the end tell them what they learned, their parents understand that the girls need to do this so they let them travel together.
