Uh-oh. This was not OK. Tommy was upset, and when Tommy was upset, weird things started happening around him. He wasn't very good yet at controlling his power. Heck, he hadn't even known what it was until about a year earlier! He'd been a late bloomer, and now he was completely out of control. He could only rarely perform telekinetic acts on purpose. For the most part, they just happened randomly around him.

Especially when he was worked up, which he was at the moment. Tommy had finally gotten up the guts to tell Sophia that he liked her, and she hadn't taken it well. She'd actually laughed in his face, as though he were making some kind of a joke. He'd told her that, no, he wasn't joking. He was completely serious. And then she'd looked at him with pity in her eyes and told him that she wasn't interested and never would be.

So ... yeah. Ouch.

And now he was standing alone in an empty classroom, hoping to get out of it and head home, but he couldn't because he'd accidentally made three desks go flying toward the door and slam up against it. He wasn't sure what to do. As he approached the pile of desks, it shuddered ominously as though it were about to fall on top of him. He jerked in surprise, and an entire standing cabinet toppled over onto its side, nearly hitting him. Finally, he got up the nerve to reach out for one of the desks, and it fell onto his hand, leaving a large laceration across his palm.

"Crap!" Tommy exclaimed, closing his hand, then yelping in pain, then wrapping it up in his shirt. The blood soaked through quickly. What was he going to do?

It happened sometimes. Cecilia was in the office connected to the classroom, and she had fallen asleep in her chair. Hey, she was tired! She worked ridiculously hard! Sometimes she sat down for a few minutes in that cozy swivel chair and just sort of drifted off. She never slept for too long, though. Just little naps.

Somehow she slept through the sound of the desks slamming against the door, and then the sound of the cabinet falling over. The thing she couldn't sleep through was the sound of Tommy's voice crying out in pain. That had her awake, alert, and ready to take care of the problem.

Over the years, Cecilia had become very connected to her students. She cared deeply about what happened to them, and she couldn't help the way her adrenaline flared up whenever she heard one of them call out to her.

In a moment, Cecilia was on her feet and moving into the classroom, quickly taking stock of the situation. Tommy's hand was bleeding quite a bit. Fortunately, Cecilia's power was healing. She rushed toward him, took his hand in hers, and began to focus all her mental energy on healing the wound.

"What's going on, Tommy?" she asked in a concerned tone.

Tommy wasn't sure whether seeing Ms. Maple made him feel better or worse. On the one hand, she could heal him up and help him escape from the classroom. On the other hand, he was ashamed to be seen in such an emotional state. He didn't want to see anybody right now, and especially not his teacher. He looked up to her! He wanted her to think that he was grown-up and competent!

But, no. She'd found him upset, hurt, almost crying, and accidentally messing up school property with his mind. Just great. He gritted his teeth against the pain as his skin started pulling itself back together, knitting back into place where the desk had cut his palm open.

In response to her question, he offered a sullen shrug. "I dunno," he murmured, sniffling. "I got really upset, I guess. And then all the stuff started flying around and I didn't know how to make it stop. And now we're stuck. And what if it just keeps happening?"

He was disappointed in himself. It seemed like all the other sixteen-year-olds were way better at controlling their powers than he was.
