Kate never put much stock in the rumor that she was the first daughter born in over two hundred years to the Thomas family. First it wasn’t believable and second it wasn’t something she could have controlled if she wanted to. And she liked being the youngest daughter. Her three older brothers were a bit overprotective - perhaps controlling at times - but no one messed with her. Matt and Eric, the oldest and twins, were telekinetic and that was only a secondary skill to their natural talent to run off unwelcome outsiders. It was top-secret knowledge that only Brian, the last Thomas brother, and her were permitted to know.

But things have a way of changing and something as ridiculous as being the only daughter turned out to be the loose thread that unraveled a long hidden family secret.

them. She heard nothing back and the reflex to breath overtook her. Chlorine water flowed into her lungs

as bubbles of air escaped to the surface.

The hold released as if hewed with a hacksaw and she swam up coughing out sputum and taking

in air. Eric was in the pool with her. He helped the water empty out of her lungs with his telekinesis. Matt

had tackled Gran but she threw him back. One sensation pulled Kate out of the pool while at her feet

another pulled her down.

Close your eyes and concentrate. She heard in her head. She obeyed and the grip on her feet

weakened and she was lifted out of the water and landed on the deck behind Matt.

“Another time then.” And Gran hurried off away from the hotel. She moved like a woman half

her age.

They could feel her retreat. It was easier to sense that Gran left than to find her coming when it

wasn’t expected. Kate panted for more air. Her lungs stung but they were empty. The coldness and the

extra effort she exerted to focus caused her head to throb.

A hotel employee had come out to tell them the pool was closed for the night. When she saw Kate

and Eric were drenched she exclaimed, “Oh dear.” She was a motherly looking woman in her fifties.

Yanking out a walkie-talkie she called for towels.
