  • Not that he minded, since the guy was a jerk to the gazillionth power.

  • And, to be fair, that incident wasn’t completely his fault.

  • Lexa and Melanie helped with that too.

  • Conner also didn’t mean to zap every power line and transformer in Nashville like popcorn in a microwave.

  • Things like this just seemed to happen when young Magi were around, the natural combination of adolescence, strange powers, and a secret battle raging between the followers of Light and Dark.

  • At the moment, though, Conner wasn’t worried about the cosmic battle between the Magi and their Darkhand enemies.

  • For now, his main battle involved his algebra homework.

  • Alone in his room, he glared at the textbook, stifling a burning hatred for whatever idiot had first shoved letters and numbers together.

  • X makes a sound!

  • he thought.

  • It’s not a number.

  • Narrator

    As his frustration rose, he pounded a clenched fist onto his desk.

  • Bad idea.

  • The desk cracked and crumpled to the floor.

  • The Light gave all Magi a special gift or ability when their powers first Kindled.

  • Conner had superstrength and speed, which came in handy when fighting bad guys.

  • But superstrength also led to a lot of damage in the off-hours.

  • Narrator

    He reached down and grabbed the algebra book from the top of the wreckage, resisting the urge to hurl it through the wall.
