Ditto... and I finally pleased you by writing!
Iris parked the motorcycle in an alleyway in a sunny but filthy and vacant town. â€œWeâ€™ll be working with your basic magnetic skills today,â€ said Iris as she tossed back her hair. I awkwardly fumbled my way out of the side-car of her Indian motorcycle.
She walked into an open area complete with a dumpster and hobo rags. â€œOkay, first, I want you to try and push the dumpster a couple of inches.â€
I stared dumbly. Wasnâ€™t that a bit too much for a beginner? She seemed to have read my thoughts, because she said kindly, â€œItâ€™s alright, Shamus, you can do it! Just put all your mind power into it.â€ I inhaled and bent my thoughts on the greenish, dirty side of the overflowing dumpster. Nothing until it quivered a bit. A milk carton fell out as it jolted forward an inch.
â€œOkay!â€ Iris shouted. My brain seemed to twitch, pressing against the inner walls of my skull. â€œThat was really very good!â€ Iris assured me.
â€œYou think?â€ I said.
â€œWell, youâ€™re not fantastic,â€ she admitted, which made me feel less like I was being complimented to make me feel good. â€œBut just know this: when I started training, I got a headache levitating a toothpick.â€
She left me dumbfounded. A toothpick?
Then from Irisâ€™s pocket came a trill of a cell phone ringing. â€œSorry,â€ she mumbled as she removed it and read the screen, which apparently had caller I.D. â€œItâ€™s Rip, so let me just take thisâ€¦â€ she trailed off as she pressed a button and said, â€œHello?â€ From my distance I could hear a lot of that fuzzy noise and shoutingâ€¦ and gunshots. Iris started confused, then gradually became terrified. She hang up, breathing heavily.
â€œShamus, Volmerâ€™s found us, we need to-â€œ but she was cut off by the exploding of the dumpsterâ€¦
