The Afterlife part 21

I had immediately disagreed to go meet our new neighbors. Jordyn had countered asking, "Why?"
The answer was quite simple. I hate Dallas, and didn't plan on doing anything she told me. After the way she treated me without even knowing me, there was no way I ever planned on liking her.
That wasn't what I said though. I said that I was shy.
They both knew it was a lie, but for my sake agreed with it. Will talked me into doing it. There was just one condition I had. That was that I wasn't knocking on anyone's door.
Now I was standing next to Jordyn behind Will as he knocked on the door of the cabin across from ours. The door swung open on its own, giving us all a little shock.
"Come in." A male voice called.
We all entered the cabin. The inside was similar to that of ours. A few beds, and dressers. A couple of shelves too. The only difference was that there wasn't a desk.
A boy sat on one the beds. He looked up from something he was tinkering with to see us.
"Hey," He started obviously about to say that names of the people who entered his cabin. When he saw that he didn't know us, he quickly changed his choice of words. "Who are you?"
"I'm William, most people just call me Will though. This is my sister Jordyn, and this is Kelly." Will introduced us all, gesturing to us as he said our names.
"Uh huh. Well I'm Carl, and I'm guessing you guys are new here." The boy said standing up. He was on the shorter side, probably no taller than me. His hair was a small curly orange mass on top of his freckled head. I was to get a look at this eyes too, finding they were a metallic silver.
"Your guess is correct." I said before Will could answer. "The only person we've met so far is Dallas." I tried hard not to sneer at the name.
"Okay. Carl was now looking us all over. He'd already looked past Will and Jordyn, but stopped short when his eyes met mine.
I didn't know if he knew exactly who it is that I am, but his stare made me uncomfortable. "So, what's it like around this place?" I asked making Carl jump back into our conversation.
"Oh, I think it's quite nice here. We train for part of the day, but we're mostly allowed to do whatever. That is as long as you're on time for meas and the occasional meeting. Don't worry though, I'll help get you guys through the first few days. I'll also introduce you to a lot of other people, although I'm sure you'll met some on your own. Um, hey quick question. What can you guys do?" Carl said what could have been one very long sentence.
Will answered first, "I can teleport, and I have incredible hearing."
Jordyn was next, "With on word I can cause any living creature intense pain."
Then it was just me. I debated whether or not i should tell this guy the truth or not. I decided that i might as well just tell him the truth, he was bound to find out anyway. "Everything." I said simply, but before he could question me i quickly added, "What about you?"
"Telekinesis." He answered flatly. As if to prove himself he raised his hand towards one of the dressers. With that a pencil holder on it rose into the air, and floated towards me.
I plucked it from the air. "Nice." I said, and sent it floating back to the dresser.
He raised an eyebrow, and I smirked. "Is that what you meant by everything?"
"Not at all."
At that moment a girl walked into the cabin.
"Hey Jill." Carl waved to her with an awkward smile.
She was pretty. What with her soft toned skin, long blonde hair, full lips, and striking jade green eyes. Everything about her just shouted beauty.
"Hey." She said in a voice almost like a purr. "Who are you?" She asked walking in front of us.
"I'm Kelly." I said.
Jordyn followed my suit and said her name right after me. I assumed William would then do the same, but I only heard silence.
I looked at him to see him staring at Jill in a trance like state. Looking at Jill, I saw she was smiling at him.
"Will." I waved my hand in front of his face. He snapped back to reality.
"What?" He asked confused.
Jill chuckled. "You are so cute!"
I saw Will blush, and lost it.
I stepped between Will and Jill. "Back off." I spat at Jill.
"Oh my. I'm sorry. I didn't realize, I was just showing off. I"m so sorry." Jill babbled on.
"Wait. What?" I exclaimed.
(This is where 13secrets begins writing)
"I'm so sorry, I didn't tell you, I'm a seducer, I can pretty much make any one do whatever I want." Jill apologized.
I just stared at her and went "Uh huh."
"I'm so sorry I didn't realize you two were together, I would've never done it if I had known." Jill rushed out trying not to offend me.
"Firetruck you, you itchy B!" I yelled and stormed out, making my way back to our cabin. I stumbled into a girl dressed in black skinny jeans, a blood red tank top, with a long black trench coat covering it, black combat boots, and a dying heart necklace. She had long black hair and cold piercing icy blue eyes.
"Sorry, my bad." I quickly said, shrinking back under her intense stare.
She mumbled something under her breath then said, "It's alright."
"I'm Kelly, and you are?" I asked.
"Crystal." She stated. Ok... I thought.
"What's your power?" I asked, trying to lighten up the situation. She answer by making a ring of fire appear around us without even moving.
"I'm the very first of the fire users." Crystal stated.
"Woah," I couldn't help it, it just slipped out, this chick must be powerful if she's the first of the fire users. She just rolled her eyes.
"Typical reaction from another nobody. So, what's up with you?"
"I can do anything and everything. I'm the one that's supposed to defeat Nymphoria with the help of some friends." I stated matter of factually. Ha beat that I thought to myself.
Crystal simply stared at me, "Uh huh."
"That's it?!" Just an 'Uh huh', I'm supposed to defeat the one and only Nymphoria and all you have to say is 'Uh huh'?!" i exclaimed rather offended.
She rolled her eyes again. "so you know how many people have come before you to do the same thing?"
"I was told from the beginning that I was the one." I said, feeling small as an ant.
"Sure."
"Whatever, I'm going to my cabin now if you don't mind." I said as I saw William and Jordyn walking out of Carl's cabin. I don't even want to know what happened there once I left i thought to myself.
"Alright, well if you need anything I live over there." Crystal said pointing at the a cabin a few down on the opposite. "Cabin number 13."
"Kay thanks." I said opening my cabin door.
"Anytime, feel free to come for anything."

I slammed the door and flopped on my bed, face down. "Uhhhhh." I heard the door open and close, followed by a set of footsteps and then I felt my tip slightly and a hand on my back. "Go away." I growled.
"You know i can't do that." William said trying not to react to my growling.
I sighed. "Just leave me alone."
"Kelly you're overreacting. She's a seducer, I didn't have any control over my actions." He said almost begging for forgiveness.
"Just forget it, leave it be, I just want all this to end so I can got out of this town and live my dead life."
"This isn't just about Jill anymore is it?" He asked.
"No."
"Care to share?"
"Not really."
"What else is there to worry about?"
"Oh I don't know, maybe the fact that I have to kill Nymphoria."
"Oh, sorry."
At this point I stopped responding to anything he said and just ignored him, thinking about everything.
