My Young Justice
"C'mon Jay it's supposed to be beautiful." Anna Marie said as she led her friends April Shay and Jay Black outside to her back yard. "How did you even hear about this" April said trying to get out of the death grip that Anna Marie had put around her arm. "Everyone's talking about it at school. Didn't you hear about it Jay, I mean Gotham Academy has to hear the news first right?" Anna Marie said looking at the short ebony haired girl in her other hand. "No Anna Marie I told you, I don't really talk at school." Jay said sighing. Anna Marie rolled her eyes, "Well c'mon then I don't want to miss it. This comet shower isn't happening for another 100 years." April and Jay exchanged glances, they looked at their happy go lucky friend and smiled. "Fine Ann lead the way" Jay said with a smile. Anna Marie squealed as she led her friends to her backyard.
"Wow you were right, this is really beautiful." April said to Anna Marie. "Yeah who knew you could be right for once" Jay said chuckling. Anna Marie got up and stuck her tongue out at the other girl. April chuckled along with Jay, it was nice to hang out all together again. Ever since Jay moved school's it's been her and Anna Marie alone, they still saw Jay they all lived on the same block. They all leaned back on the blanket they were laying on. Harsh words forgotten, they stayed silent for a couple of moments, when they saw a comet fall and making impact nearby. All three girls got up and said "Did you guy's see that".
They stared wide eyed till Anna Marie got up and started to run towards it. Jay looked at April and April yelled "Hey where are you going". Anna Marie stopped and sighed "To go see it duh. I mean really how can you pass this up." Jay had a feeling deep in her stomach, telling her that this was a bad idea. April though seemed to have the opposite feeling because she too got up and started to run the same direction. April looked back and yelled "C'mon Jay." Jay got up and shook her head, this wasn't a good idea. Anna Marie's stomach was filled with butterflies as she came nearer to the comet. It was green and eerie looking. She climbed silently into the ditched still memorized by the beauty and the abnormality of it. She was transfixed still until she heard a gasp and a squeal. "Anna Marie what are you doing in there. The plan was to see it, not to touch it! What are you thinking, you can get radiation poisoning or-" April said before getting cut off by Jay. "She wasn't thinking, as usual. C'mon Ann get out of there before April here has a heart attack". Anna Marie turned to her friends knowing that they were right but couldn't leave her spot. It was like it was a magnet, it attracted her. "But April you can't believe this. It feels so weird." Anna Marie said suppressing a grin. She used April's weakness against her, almost everyone knows that April was always curious. April looked at Jay before taking a step in. Jay sighed "Well you two go and get radioactive poisoning, I'll just be right here." If the two girls heard her they didn't show it. They kept on getting closer and closer to the comet. Jay felt a chill run through her spine and butterflies in her stomach and a feeling that something bad is going to happen. She was going to suggest that they get out of there. When Anna Marie and April put their hand on the comet. A small explosion of green smoke and fire covered Anna Marie and April, while Jay leaped back but still found a tiny spark that had touched her arm. She opened her mouth to scream but couldn't find her voice. She ran towards the ditch, looking desperately for any sign of her two friends. She dropped down to her knees quietly sobbing, when she heard coughing. She lifted her head to see Anna Marie propping up April on her shoulder. They were both coughing up a storm and was all ashy and had soot all over them, but Jay didn't care. She ran to them and pulled them into a hug. Between coughs Anna Marie said "Hey (cough) Jay can (cough) we le- (cough) -ave. I think we've had enough (cough) of this adventure (cough)". Jay laughed with tears glistening in her eyes. She led her friends the way back home.
Anna Marie woke up in her bedroom, she blinked a couple of times and reached for her glasses. She put them on, but she when her eyes adjusted it was blurry. Anna Marie gasped she knew her eyesight was bad but this was silly, she took her glasses off fast not wanting to get a headache. When she took them off, another gasp left her mouth, she could see perfectly. She jolted from her bed and ran to the nearest mirror. But this time she could barely get the gasp out of her mouth. She looked the same except her caramel brown eyes, they were replaced with a golden brown color that looked like fire when the light hit them. She made a move for the phone, she knew it was earlyand on a Saturday for that but this is an emergency, she could wake them up this once….
After getting cleaned up, April walked home, where she found her bed and drifted off to a deep sleep that wouldn't be interrupted until her three year old sister Julie woke her up. "Apree, Apree wake up you had an accident" was the voice that woke her up. She groaned as she came back to the world. "What is it Julie" April said still laying there. Julie giggled "You had an accident". And with that she raced out of the room, slamming the room door shut. April dismissed the comment and started to go back to sleep when her hand felt something wet. She bolted from her bed and saw that it was soaked. 'When in the world did this happen'. She got up and made her way to the bathroom. Putting her hands over the sink and started to rub in her hands under the water when she realized that she didn't turn on the water. She took her hands back when she saw that they were water, she screamed a little in shock. She was still dumbfounded when her phone rang.
Jay leaned over to her bed to get to her alarm clock. She got up and looked out her window to see the sun barley rising, she go up early on Saturdays while all the other kids slept. She went to her closet to get some workout clothes on. She climb out the window and jumped onto the tree. She ran about 2 miles to go to her "local" gym. She went into the gym and put her stuff down. She ran to the bar and started to do her gymnastic routine. She was one of the best gymnasts in the state, all through the routine she felt bored like she was too good for this, it wasn't a feeling she liked. She decided to attempt a class A trick, when she got up to the bar she felt something tingle all through her body. She took a breath and started to run. Five seconds later she sticked a perfect landing. Her breathing was hard and she was covered in sweat. She couldn't believe it, she went back and tried some more. An hour later she was dripping in sweat. She grabbed a towel and started to dab all the sweat off. She wondered why she could suddenly do that. She was still thinking when her cell phone rang.
