Nighttime at the beach was the only place now that Alyssa felt safe. It was usually empty, free of the world that all wanted her power. A sanctuary in sand, away from ignorance. No one could relate to someone with her abilities. “Need a friend?” Alyssa turned, seeing a woman walking towards her. “No, thank you. Besides, you would never understand” Alyssa said as the woman stopped in front of her. “Are you sure?” the woman asked just as a small twig she was holding spontaneously lit up with sparks. It was then Alyssa knew she was not the only one.
