Filled with beeps, buzzing, and clattering, I knew that I was surrounded by electronics. Electronics that could probably be destroyed easily, with one thought.

“Oh, there is,â€? the doctor said. “There are others on the ride than just you, you do realize that, don’t you?â€?

I closed my eyes and breathed slowly. I had to stay calm- sometimes (even the scientists and doctors didn’t know), my thoughts could get a little uncontrolled. When that happened, anything nearby could be destroyed.

No one would get killed by me; I’d decided that long ago. I could destroy any material thing I wanted to, but I would never become any kind of murderer.
