Footsteps were heard pattering across the floor from a distance; inch by inch Gabriel crept back rubbing his hands together to get some heat. "Vamos… vamos… (Come on… come on)." He grew frustrated, his back was close to a wall and in front of him various men running towards his way. The narrow hallways were grim with the flickering lights bouncing off the stained grey walls. Electricity sparked at the end of the batons the men were holding.
"Vamos, vamos (Come on, come on.)" Gabriel grew frustrated, he had done it before. The friction increased as smoke began to come out of his palms. The young teen smiled with relief. A flame emerged from his hand, only to sizzle out.
"O dios... (Oh god…)."
Ten Hours Ago
The young Hispanic munched on an apple as he sat on the side walk. It was evident he lost some weight; stealing food from stands in order to survive. Gabriel understood no one and he doubted anyone understood him. He wept at times as he bit into his apple, missing his homeland but knowing full well that he had to return "healthy." The young man finished his apple as he threw its core into the trash can. He got up as he unintentionally bumped into a pedestrian.
"Watch where you're going!" The man yelled as he stopped to look dead into Gabriel's eyes. The young man looked into the dark eyes of the man, intimidated. "What? Can't talk? No speak?"
Gabriel walked away, trying to avoid any type of confrontation. "That's what I thought!" The young man continued to walk, his curious mind boggled him and turned around to see the man walking across the street texting on his phone; unaware of the car at full speed.
"¡El Carro! (The car!)" Gabriel shot his hand out wanting to get the guy's attention. Suddenly the world seemed to go slow around the young Hispanic. People ran toward the car, the driver shouting inaudible words. Gabriel looked in shock as the police soon arrived, running away from the scene, running away from the crowded people surrounding a man burnt a giant wave of fire.
The young teen ran and ran, entering an ally to be alone. He slammed his fist against the wall, tears streamed down his face as his head leaned down. "¿Por qué tengo este maldición sobre mi? (Why do I have this curse upon me?)"
"Yo te puedo ayudar."
Gabriel immediately looked up at the man who spoke. He was a rather skinny man with a suit and a briefcase with him. He walked closer to Gabriel, "Soy un científico y yo estudio los genes mutantes. (I'm a scientist and I study mutant genes)"
"¿Mutante? ¿Soy un mutante? (Mutant? I'm a mutant?)
"Si, y te puedo curar… (Yes, and I can cure you…). His voice was tender, but firm. Hope had arrived, he can finally go back home and live a normal life, get rid of his "disease."
2 hours later…
Smoke began to seep out of the generators. Gabriel's hands twitched. His ears caught voices around him.
"Raise the voltage."
"Ma'am, if we continue we might kill him."
"I want to see what makes his fire spark. Besides, we have more test subjects on the way. Raise the voltage!"
