"Listen, I don't know what's going on here, except for the fact that my little sister almost got killed, but what others?" asked Mark. "And are you telling the truth? If so, we can meet them. If they're like Emily and Penny's school bully-and possibly worse, I'd rather deal with them and get killed than have my little sister get killed!" Penny nodded, though she gulped at Mark's reaction. The guy had serious anger management issues and when he got real mad, things got real ugly.
"She has special powers like you two that she hasn't discovered yet, as you already discovered yours." Penny and Mark looked at each other, and shrugged. They had no clue what was going on, but went along with it.
"Uh-okay, we'll go along with it, but-" Penny trailed off.
"How can we trust you?" Mark put in. "For all we know, you could be trying to get our trust, than threaten us! I won't let my friends and family get killed!" Spinelli sighed, and looked at Mark.
"I want her to meet some friends of your relatives. You know Kevin and Aaron, right?" Mark nodded. They were friends of the Jordan family, consisting Mark and Emily as well as their parents, and the Gregory family, which was Penny and her parents.
"How did- no way! If you know them, and-wait-are you-" Penny was starting to realize.
"Let me guess. Aaron and Kevin can somehow communicate with you, right?" asked Mark. "That's kind-of freaky, and pretty cool, in a way." Spinelli nodded, and they went to where Kevin and Aaron were.
