Power Up!

Brandon's Power

Brandon stomped out of the trailer, yelling back at his sisters.

"WHEN YOU'RE READY TO ADMIT I'M RIGHT, COME FIND ME!" He shouted, stomping into the nearby woods.

He stomped deeper into the woods for awhile and suddenly felt numb, he didn't move for a few minutes until it went away then continued to walk. After awhile, he started to actually look where he was going and realized…

"I have no idea where I am."

Brandon looked around. It was getting dark, and he was lost. He had never been this deep in the woods before.

"Crap," He mumbled, leaning his forehead against a tree trunk, "I can't figure out how to get home."

He imagined his home, the trailer. His sisters would start to worry after the anger cooled off. He can't believe he yelled and stomped off like that just because they didn't believe in horoscopes and zodiac signs. He snapped his fingers in irritation, and somehow found himself in the trailer.

"What the-?" He looked around and saw his sisters.

"How the heck did you get there?!" Lee yelled.

"I...don't know," Brandon said.

"That was so cool!" May said, "Can you do it again?"

"Uh…" Brandon tried to remember what he had done.

He thought of the trailer and snapped his fingers. That's it. He'd done it thousands of times before. But this time, he had felt...numb….

Brandon looked down at his right hand, thought of the kitchen, snapped his fingers, and appeared in the kitchen. He heard May in the other room clapping.

"Yay! Now come back!" She said. Brandon snapped his fingers and teleported to the living room.

"Well, how about that," Marie said, looking at her older brother.

"Looks like someone got their power," Lee smiled at her younger brother.

"I did?" Brandon asked, "Hey, I did!"

The next day, the Kanker sisters were walking to school. They had made a promise to their mom that they'd go at least once a week. Brandon was still at the trailer park, though, since he could just teleport to school.

"Man, why does Brandon get to stay back?" May asked angrily. She was floating slightly above the ground as the devil.

"Because, like I said a thousand times, he can get to school in a second!" Lee snapped.

At exactly 8:30, when the school opened, Brandon teleported and appeared right next to his sisters in the boiler room.

"S'up?" He asked.

"'Bout time you got here!" Marie said, "We've been waiting fifteen minutes!"

"Well, I'm not going to school early anymore," Brandon said.

"Whatever," Lee said, looking around, "Alright, who took my lunch?!"

"I didn't take it," May said.

"Me either," Marie said.

"Must have left it at home," Lee grumbled. Brandon disappeared and reappeared holding Lee's lunch.

"Your food, ma'am," Brandon joked.

"Hey, thanks," Lee smiled slightly and took her lunch.

At lunchtime, Brandon quickly ate and teleported to the lunchroom, right behind Bella.

"Hi babe," Brandon smirked.

"Ah!" Bella yelled, turned cat, and ran off.

Brandon smiled, let her get a few feet, and teleported in front of her. Bella skidded to a hault and turned around. This was done a few times before Brandon finally grabbed her.

After school, Brandon teleported home and waited for his sisters. Getting an idea, he grabbed an apple from the fridge and sat on the couch in front of the door, waiting. When his sisters walked inside, he took another bite of the apple.

"Where have you been?" He asked, "I've been waiting forever." He laughed. Lee and Marie rolled their eyes.

"Well, not all of us have teleporting as our power," May said.

"Ah, I know," Brandon said, "I was just joking."

"Well, in that case, ha. Ha," Marie said.
