So @angeldust3373 asked for a Sean x MC fic. I’ve never written one before, but @blazerina gave me a prompt yesterday (hiding in the grocery store to avoid someone you don’t want to see) and everything just sort of… worked. I called the Endless Summer MC Taylor here, because my MC, Evie, romances Jake. This is supposed to take place a good 5-10 years after ES ends, and my theory is that the MC is going to have to stay on LaHuerta/sacrifice herself to avoid Mt. Atropo from erupting. So, that’s the basis! Enjoy!
Summary: Sean tells Taylor about running into a friend from the past.
The sound of prisoners snoring,
tossing and turning on their beds slowly starts to fade.
The humming sound of air rushing
through the vents intensifies, slowly enveloping Psi’s mind and body.
Her body starts swaying as the
sound mutates, making Psi feel as if she’s floating in the ocean; the waves
lazily pulling and pushing her.
The waves pull her further into
the ocean’s vastness.
Breathing in doesn’t come as easily anymore.
Psi feels herself being pulled
down as the waves crash on top of her; nothing of that initial laziness left,
and she struggles to breathe as her heart begins to race in her chest, and
suddenly Psi is not in the open sea anymore; she’s inside a vat filled with
water with doctors in their stark white coats looking at her curiously without
any hint of wanting to help as she claws at her throat desperate to breathe.
Panting heavily, Psi’s eyes snap
open and she finds herself exactly where she’s been all along: in her prison
cell where she had sat on her bed to meditate.
Facing your worst fear isn’t
pleasant, and most people avoid doing so their entire lives, but Psi knows that
if she wants to tap into her powers, she must go to the source of it: her own
She feels faint; the vision she
had just had took a great toll on her, but Psi smiles, because it was a true
vision, it was her powers turned on herself, not just a meditation-induced
Running her open palms on the
cheap sheets of her bed to ground herself to reality, Psi thinks about how
she’s been feeling more powerful, surer of herself after her last “checkup”
with the doctor. She attributes it to her hate for the woman, and the
desperation to get the hell out of this place. Without giving it another thought,
Psi closes her eyes again and focuses on her cellmate.
Channeling all her attention to
the woman on the upper bunk, Psi tries to forget about the collar around her
neck; she convinces herself that it’s nothing but jewelry, something fancy and
expensive adorning her skin. With a surge of confidence, Psi gasps softly as
she feels her power rolling off her in waves, and it doesn’t take another
minute before her cellmate is whimpering in fear in her sleep; Psi is now spectating
the nightmare from the safety of her own mind.
She never understood exactly how her powers work, she simply accepts them as they are: Psi induces vivid nightmares on her marks, and if she’s
focusing on only one individual, she gets to see what their fears are.
One thing Psi did learn early on,
however, is that humans are too complex to have only one fear. Sure, some
people have a very specific thing they dread, and it ends up overriding
everything else; but when it comes to the majority of the population they tend
to have a handful of situations, things, or people they fear more or less equally and
simultaneously. Those are the best targets; the ones with vivid imagination and
competing fears, they make Psi’s skin tingle with excitement as she watches
them get trapped in a never-ending loop of their worst nightmares.
The cellmate’s fear is boring to
her; dying alone on a prison cell… Such lack of
imagination, Psi thinks, scoffing out loud before letting go of the woman’s
mind. It’s only then Psi realizes she actually used her powers despite the
device locked around her neck.
Being on the verge of happy tears, Psi
tries to contain her excitement, and she closes her eyes once more to try and influence
the two prisoners on the cell next to hers.
First, she goes cell by cell, and
when she’s done with it, Psi takes a deep breath and tries to control
every inmate on that floor.
And she succeeds.
Panting lightly, Psi is smiling
when she opens her eyes again. “Tomorrow night…” she tells herself, “Tomorrow
night I’ll escape this hellhole.”
