Natalia and Sapphire were best friends and would do everything together. They lived in the same neighborhood and hung out everyday after school. Natalia and Sapphire loved going to their backyards and liked to think that they were superheroes. Natalia’s super power was always moving things with her mind, and Sapphire’s was always controlling fire. One day they were in Natalia’s backyard and something weird happened. Natalia had to save Sapphire from the evil Goblin Fred who was taking her away from her home planet. Natalia was trying to sneak into the spaceship but the doors were locked (the doors to her house). She went to open the doors with her mind and, to her surprise, they opened.
Natalia yelled, “AHH!!! COME HERE NOW!” Sapphire came running, gasping for air.
“I...have...superpowers! I’ll show you.” She focused on a pair of shoes by the front door and it rose suddenly off the floor.
Sapphire gasped, and said, “That’s amazing.” Although in her mind she wanted powers for herself.
Natalia read her facial expression, “Don't worry, I am sure you will get powers, too.” Although she wasn't that sure.
After they finished defeating the Goblin Fred, they decided to have a celebratory campfire. Natalia and Sapphire gathered sticks for the fire. They put the sticks in the fire pit, but the matches wouldn't light. Sapphire mockingly tried to light the fire with her mind and she gasped when the sticks went up in flames. Natalia declared, “You found your powers!” Then they enjoyed some s’mores. Sapphire slept over at Natalia’s house. When they woke up they weren't in Natalia’s house, they were on a spaceship, tied up in the corner. Natalia was panicking so much that it made Sapphire more scared than she was. The two friends hoped they were in a dream, but found out it was real after they pinched each other and didn't wake up.
They couldn’t see anything, so Sapphire asked, “Is anyone here?"
Then they heard a quiet but deep voice saying, “You can't defeat me that easy!”
Then both of them said at the exact same time, “FRED!"
Fred said, “I built a new machine that takes people’s souls and shreds them to pieces. You two are my test subjects.” Fred turned back around to finish his plans.
Natalia whispered, “We need to get out of here!” Sapphire quickly agreed.
Natalia used her mind to carefully untie the rope. They quietly got up and escaped through the open doors. They went to the control area and Sapphire set it on fire. They knew they didn’t have much time to escape the burning spaceship. They found an escape door and Natalia opened it with her mind. They jumped out and she mind-controlled them to the safety of her house. Once again, they celebrated with s’more
