Her eyes wandering through the massive crowd of people. One glimpse. That was all it took for her to realize everyone was seeing something different. Something pleasant. In a world full of evil only she could see. One man. He seemed to be doing this treachery. Black hair curling up at the tips of his ears. Pale oval face with big brown eyes that seemed to stare right through her. Questioningly. Standing out in the crowd of people, no one seemed to be aware that he was even there. He was gone.
“Did nobody see that?” she wondered out loud.
A sharp intake of breath, and she was strangled to the ground. A dot of pain. A needle pushed into the hollow of her ear. Everything went black. Awoken, she was on the floor.
“Where am I? What are you going to do to me?” she asked frantically.
The man chuckled. “You don’t know, do you?”
“You are one of us. One of the Gifted.”
