I could only laugh at their foolishness. So smart, yet a small child could win from them. My pale skin almost seemed to glow from all the energy that was running through my body. Such a pretty sight, yet so terribly dangerous.
Were they aware of my powers..?
I closed my eyes and emptied my mind. No more fear, or bad thoughts haunting my mind. Soon it would all fade away... until only madness remained.
