"The truth is, I don't know," I told her. "I pray to the gods that world still exists, but it might not. In fact, the whole reason I can't go back is because I don't know. After my brother and I escaped the world we were stuck in, researchers at the IISO tried to find our home world. But either it wasn't in their records, or we didn't have enough information to distinguish it from all the others. He and I still search for it, but the multiverse is so huge... We had to accept a long time ago that we may never find it again."

Njalla was silent for a moment. "That's horrible."

I just kind of gave a half-shrug. "Compared to the rest of the story, it really isn't the worst..."

Njalla sighed. "Well, it's not like I have much else to do except keep the zombie under control."

"Ah, that explains it," I said, looking at the bed for a moment. "Well, anyway..." I gave another sigh. "It started when the Sybek first arrived in my town. I was eight. They came to my elementary school--I'd been doing some kind of afterschool art activity with some other kids, and we'd just been getting out. Since it was after regular school hours, there weren't a lot of people around." I clenched my fists a little and looked at the floor. When I spoke again, my voice was hard. "The Sybek kidnapped us all and took us to a different world. From there, they ejected us to the Center of the Planar Universe, where we were all scatted across the dimensions. By some fluke, I'd accidentally run into another boy, so we both stayed together. He and his mother had been visiting from another country; his much older cousin had come several months prior to teach basic parts of their language to students. It was just unfortunate chance that he got mixed up in everything, too." I paused. "I could go on, but the story gets worse before it gets better. I don't know if I've bored you yet."

"Who the hell knows," I muttered. "All I know is they did. It's strange, because there are no other known incidences of the Sybek doing anything like that. They're always trying to present themselves as benevolent."

"Maybe they were a splinter faction?" Njalla shrugged. "Just a guess."

"I guess it doesn't really matter one way or another," I said. "The point is, they took me from my home world. And the next two years were a living hell."

"That was also when I first received my powers," I spoke. "When you're eight and you've just gotten power over heat and fire, power that you have absolutely no control over in the beginning..." I let the sentence hang.

"I almost feel like 'nightmare' isn't strong enough," I started, "but maybe I'm just being over-sensitive. Still...nightmares don't last long, and once you wake up, you realize none of it was real."

"Yeah..." I looked at my hands. "After a certain...incident, I swore I'd never use fire again, only heat. That didn't last after the IISO taught me to control my abilities, but at the time, I'd been terrified of my power. I'd hated it. While the foreign boy I mentioned--who I now call a brother--got to fly and control the wind, here I'd accidentally burned a man to death."

Njalla nodded. "That's awful. At least I've only ever killed people intentionally." There was a pause. "...I'm not sure which is worse."

I gave a short, bitter laugh.
