"And they said nothing happened? Wouldn't believe that for a second. People don't just pass out because of nothing."
Charm's arrogant voice rang down the halls as most of the team stood in the training room and discussed what had occured. Most of the team. Delta, Aisling, Robin and Nathan all sat in Fin's room with her. "You're sure it was him?" Delta asked.
"Positive. I'd recognize that son of a bitch anywhere." Fin growled. "Brennan, goddamn ass."
"And Chelsea," Nathan added. "God, I hate her."
"So, do we tell them? The team?" Aisling watched the younger teens, concerned.
"No!" Nathan and Fin exclaimed, so loud that the coversation in the front room stopped and voices were heard coming down the hall. "Shit."
Blade suddenly teleported into the room. "What's going on?"
Phoebe and Becca crammed into the nearly full room, followed by Mercy, Scarlet, Artemis, and Megan. Charm, Lucas and the rest of the guys stood in the doorway. "What happened to you?" Wally watched Nathan's face carefully for a reply. He got none.
"C'mon, princess, there's something you're not telling us." Charm squeezed through, and stood before Fin, who now collapsed backwards onto her comforter. "Out," she muttered, kicking him in the shin. "And stop calling me names!"
"Fin, we just wanna know what's upsetting you." Mercy sat on the bed, making it sag a little.
"Really. We're your friends," Becca smiled and sat on the opposite side of the bed.
Fin sighed, and suddenly the bed burst into flames. Becca lept off the bed and everyone took a step back. Mercy sat there, looking disgruntled and confused as to why Nathan was still on the bed, and he replied, "I'm used to it."
Lucas huffed. "They don't want us here. They've got secrets they don't wanna share. Let's just go." He took Artemis' hand and led her out of the room. Then all the other guys left, except Robin and Nathan, Megan going with Connor. Then it was just them.
Fin sat up. "Thank god," she murmured, and extinguished her bed. "I told some of you about Brennan, right?"
Blade growled, Becca narrowed her eyes, and Phoebe threw her right fist into the palm of her left hand. Scarlet and Mercy were puzzled. "Who?"
Fin inhaled deeply. "Brennan Damed. A boy, probably 17 now, who was-is- a villianous asshole who seems to think I'm his property. That I'm his slave." She shuddered.
"Um.. ok?" Scarlet's red hair fluttered around her shoulders as she watched the girl explain.
"We met when I was working with... my old employer," Fin thought out the words, carefully avoiding his name. "He was the one who got me through the first year, constantly teaching me my mistakes. And he began to think we had something. But when I refused, he told me I was his. And then he dissapeared. I haven't seen him till recently."
Mercy nodded. "Why did he contact you?"
Fin looked up, and though they couldn't see it, they all knew there was fear in her eyes. "He's decided to come back for me."
