Mary came in a few seconds later dressed like a waiter.
"I see you two have gotten situated, comfortable?" she smirked. I glare at her.
"Yeah, because ropes chaffing my legs, forcing me to stay here against my will, totally deserves a five star rating." I respond sarcastically, plopping a fry into my mouth. Dan smiles a real, genuine smile. I don't know, but I could tell it was real.
'she's cute when she's mad.' I heard him think. I blushed when I realized I was staring.
"Well, I'll leave you to it." she winked at Dan, who in return blushed and glared at her. I continued to eat in silence. When I was done with my pizza, I decided I would make things a little more..... interesting.
"Dan, c-can I ask you something?" I ask.
"Sure." he responds.
"W-Was that magic... real?" I continue.
"Ummm... yeah?" he says.
"What can you do, besides throw people up against walls?" I pester on.
'Well I can't tell her I could've killed her with the flick of my wrist.' Dan thought bitterly. I had to hide the fear when I heard that.
"I basically can move any object, living or dead. And Mary can summon any weapon." he explained. It sounds like their powers are variations of Bill and Tad's, in a way.
"That's a lot cooler than mine..." I mumble under my breath, but still loud enough fo him to hear.
"Yours?" he asked. Shit. I fucked up saying that out loud.
"What? What do you mean? It's not like I'm magical or anything..." I laughed nervously, putting my hands up in defense. Even I knew that I didn't sound convincing.
"Sal." Dan said darkly and stood, now towering over me.
"I-It's just some cheap sideshow trick, not as.. ummm..... threatening as telekinesis..." I stammered, shrinking back in my chair. Dan wasn't satisfied with that, though.
'I swear, if she's one of them, I'm so dead when I tell dad.' he thought, scowling at me.
"Tell me, what is this 'cheap sideshow trick'?" he asked. If looks could kill, I'd be dead right now.
"I-I can read minds, but that's it! I swear!" I practically screamed. I didn't like sounding weak, but I figured it would be better than giving up any of my other secret powers to them.
"Alright, so do you have any family, perhaps twin brothers?" he continued.
'I have a cousin named Sal, and she does look like me in a way.' he thought
'It has to be her'.
"No......" I trailed off, I really hoped I sounded sad. It seemed to work, because Dan's glare seemed to soften. I had to come up with a depressing story on the spot.
"My father raped my mom, and after I was born, she killed herself. I never seen my father since. I was put up for adoption, but nobody wanted me. After I graduated, the orphanage kicked me out and I moved to Swanford. Now I'm here for college off of a scholarship." I told the story I told almost everyone I met. Dan sat down, eyes downcast. I could've sworn I heard him sniffle.
'How could I accuse her of being so evil? I should give her a place to sleep for the night. Wait, is she reading my ming right now? Shit' he thought and snapped his fingers. I smirked at him. I opened my mouth to make a smart ass comment, but didn't have time to. I felt a huge pain in the back of my head, then everything went black.ns 184.108.40.206da2
