Time’s up. Sarah had to know what he meant, now.
They’d spent so long in the darkness, in their own filth. They’d eaten so little, grown so weak, and now they’d die. And the thing that upset Carol most was that they would never understand why.
Yeah, sorry, I can’t help you there.
So Sarah gets shields, for defense (along with lasers because pew pew). Carol gets light weapons and the morph ball, to fight back.
“No!” Sarah shrieked, her voice raw.
The light was so bright it momentarily blinded Carol. She covered her face with her arms.
Ooh, here we go! Laser time!
So I guess Sarah’s taking the initiative to fight back. Although this is very likely an involuntary, out of control use of her power, as seems to tend to happen with new triggerers.
Also, looks like we’re not getting any Dandelions this time, since Sarah triggered before Carol. Unless we get to see their involvement in Carol’s trigger like with Hana.
When she looked up again, the man was on his hands and knees. And her sister… Sarah was standing.
Except standing was the wrong word. Sarah was upright, and her legs were moving, but her toes were barely touching the ground. She wasn’t supporting her own weight.
Oh right, she got flight too.
She advanced on the man, raising one hand.
Again, that blinding light. It didn’t burn the man, nor did it cut him. He reacted like he’d been punched instead, stumbling backward through the doorway. She hit him again, over and over, wordless cries accompanying each attack.
Carol saw only glimpses of the man’s bloodied body in the split-seconds the light hung in the air. He was being beaten, pulverized.
Kidnappers in this ‘verse really need to learn to treat their captives better, to keep them from triggering.
