“Since when can you turn into animals?” I asked
“I’ve able to all my life” she said, un-braiding her long dark brown hair.
“And you never told me, because?!” I demanded
“How was I supposed to tell you? ‘Hey Sarah, guess what! I can turn in to every single type of animal, whether it’s real of from some-sort of mythology!’” she asked
“True” I said
“Since when do you have a boyfriend?!” She demanded. Great, now I was the one getting interrogated!
“For about a month now” I responded
“OMZ! I’m so happy for you! What was your first date? A movie? A dinner?” she asked
“Um… pranking people” I remembered
“Nice” she complimented
“So, you were the elephant that saved me? No offense!” I asked
“Yeah and none taken!” she replied
“So, what have you been up to lately?” I asked
“Oh, the usual: going on runs, biking, hanging out with friends” she responded
“Cool…” I said
“What have you been up to?” she mused
“Oh, the usual: hanging with the team, beating people up, getting kidnapped, getting turned to gold, being visited by gods, finding out my best friend has superpowers” I laughed
“Who’d you beat up this time?” she teased
“Oh, just some weird bad guy named Bane who thought he was all that and more” I told her
“Anyways, time for the real reason I came: your birthday!” she whispered
“You didn’t have to come. It’s just my birthday” I said
“Of coarse I came! I would not miss your birthday for anything!” she exclaimed
“No, you don’t understand. You shouldn’t have come.” I said seriously
“Why not?” she asked
“Every year on my birthday, something either strange or bad happens. And with my new powers and Gaia awakening, I have a feeling something very bad is going to happen” I warned her
“Then what am I supposed to do? Leave then come back after your birthday?” she demanded
“Yes. That would be the safest option” I said seriously
“Just do it. Say you need to go see Poseidon to meditate or something” I interrupted
“Okay. See you after your birthday” she said as she walked out the door.
‘Good’ I thought ‘One less person to get hurt’. What I didn’t know was that my birthday was about to be the talk of the team because a certain super fast teammate of mine just heard ‘See you after your birthday’.
