Chapter 1- Introduction
They came for me when I was twelve years old. They said that I was special, that I was different. And they were right. Back then I don't think even they knew what I could do. All they had to go on were my medical records after all. They said that I was one of a kind, that there was no one else like me. And in a way they were right.
My name is Gorgon, at least it is now. I'm not allowed to use my old name anymore it would be too dangerous. If anyone where to find out who I really am, or who I really was, who any of us used to be, we would all be in danger, our families would be in danger, none of us could live with that. I haven't seen my family in over a decade for the same reason. I miss them, I always will, even if they never wanted me to come here, never wanted to believe what I could become, but it is better this way.
I live here at the centre with the others. We're all here for the same reason, because we are different, because we can help. There aren't many of us, not here. But there are centres all over the country, all over the world. We keep the rest of the world safe. We gave up on our lives so that others could live theirs. That's not to say I don't enjoy what I do. I enjoy every minute of it, and I love the people here. We are like a family all our own. A 'Family of Freaks' Pasht would say. She's been here as long as I have. We bunked together during our first few years. It was pure luck that we were thrown together when we first arrived, and at first we didn't get on. Which is not surprising, we are so different. But now I don't know what I would do without her. She helps to keep me sane, they all do, which is no easy task, especially after everything that has happened. But I've never been exactly sane. It's the reason they found me.
