Malik walks over to see the silver-blood Kia. Her eyes catch a glimpse of something moving towards her. She looks down and sees someone getting closer. She notices it isn’t anyone she has seen before. Then she smells a whiff of his scent. She notices he is a…
Malik walks slowly around Kia looking at her as if she was on display. So this is what you look like. You’re the one that escaped us that night. You are pretty. Smart too. He can’t keep from looking at Kia’s skin. How it shimmers like tiny pieces of glass rubbed all over it. Then it stops and her beautiful reddish/tan color skin shows.
What is happening to you? Malik wonders. Kia’s eyes shuffle back and forth with anger gleaming from them. If she could only get loose, she knows she would shift into a different creature. She can feel it stirring inside her.
Malik notices her eyes. Every few minutes, they change color from brown to blue to green, back to brown. He can’t help but stare at her.
Watching her struggle, he tries hypnotizing her, but he soon learns it doesn’t work on her. She can see past the gaze he offers and straight into his soulless body.
Malik stands up sharply, actually a little intimated by Kia’s ability to see into him so deeply. Malik shakes his head for a brief second.
“Well, you really are something special, aren’t you? Our powers don’t work on you. That is interesting. But I do know you alone cannot harm us.” Malik mutters and smirks.
Kia tries harder to push the drugs feeding her veins and keeping her from shifting into a creature and attack him. However, they overcome the feeling of being pure human and not of a shapeshifter. They are too strong for her and she has to stop fighting it. Her heart races so fast it feels like it is going to pound out of her chest.
She still hasn’t felt the twins move in a few days now. She knows they’re alive. They’re just relaxed. She hopes it is from the drugs, and not her body trying to shift.
