Added by: bzerknorseman...



If you had met me a few weeks ago, you probably would have described me as an average teenage girl - someone normal. Now my life has changed forever and I'm as far away from normal as it gets. A living science experiment - not only can I see ghosts, but I was genetically altered by a group of people who call themselves The Edison Group. What does that mean? For starters, I'm a teenage necromancer whose powers are out of control: I raise the dead without even trying. Trust me, that is not a power you want to have. Ever.

...said. "Am I?" She bore down on me, her eyes as wild as her hair. "Nice for someone to tell me. My mother insisted it was all in my head. She shipped me off to Lyle House, had me diagnosed as bipolar, and gave me a cartload of meds. And I gulped them because I didn't want to disappoint her." She slammed down her hands. Lightning bolts flew from her fingertips, heading straight for me. Tori's eyes went wide with shock, her lips parting in a silent no! I tried to scramble out of the way, but I wasn't fast enough. As those crackling bolts came at me, a figure materialized--a girl in a nightgown. Liz. She shoved the dresser, and it shot from the wall and into the bolt's path. Wood splintered. The mirror glass shattered, raining shards down on me as I crouched, head down. When I lifted my head, the room was silent and Liz was gone. The dresser lay on its side with a smoldering hole through it, and all I could think was: That could have been me. Tori sat huddled on the floor, her knees...

"I think he's saying no, " Ramon said. "Leave her out of this, " Derek said. Liam shook his head. "How can I do that? Look at her. So tiny and cute, big blue eyes all wide and scared. " He leaned around Derek to look at me. "That hair doesn't do anything for her. I can still smell the dye. What color is it really? Blond, I bet. She looks like a blond. " His look made my insides twist.

He gave me a look that made me shrink back into Derek, my hand gripping the knife so hard it hurt. When Liam stepped forward again, Derek's arm shot around me, a growl vibrating up from his stomach. Liam put his hand out toward me. When Derek tensed, he pulled back, then did it again, testing his reaction, laughing when he got one, until even Ramon started to laugh. "Check this out, " Liam said. "I think the pup's got himself a mate. Isn't that the cutest thing?" He leaned toward Derek, voice lowering. "It won't work out. It never does. Why don't you just give her to me now, let me help you get over it. Painful, but quick. It's the best way. " Derek moved me behind him. The werewolves let out a howl of laughter.

I looked from her to Dr. Davidoff, who smiled and nodded encouragingly, like he fully expected me to turn in my friends.

Um, if you go to that safe spot, where Derek expects you to be, you won't have to worry about finding them. They'll come to you. What if they need my help? You accidentally knocked out one woman and suddenly you're Rambo
