Ha, no, nothing more than drabbles in my notebook. My power is really similar to a telepath’s actually. I don’t need physical contact to sense another’s emotion, but touch does make it stronger. When I was little, I couldn’t control my input, and everyone’s emotions would hit me at once. And when you’re in kindergarten where every kid’s emotions flip flop like crazy, it can be overwhelming. After the professor found me, he taught me how to block them out unless I chose to let them in. He also taught me how to control my output. If I focus on an emotion, I can spread it to those in the immediate area. Again, I don’t need to touch them, but it does help. How did you learn what to do with your gift?
There is still time, I am sure.[Arches a brow and leans forward to place her elbows on her knees.] How is it similar to a Telepath’s abilities? I thought empathy worked a lot different. [Blinks at Sensor and half smiles thoughtfully. Empathy wasn’t something Becka had studied intensely, she had trained with them but never on a deeper level. Meg always did that.] That sounds pretty useful, being able to calm a panicked room.
[She shrugs] It was always a second nature to me, I think I had more trouble figurin’ out how to control my primal form than a storm. Had to learn the intensity, gage how far I could go without hurtin’ anyone. Or well blowin’ the dangerrooms disruptor…. That was interestin’.
