Riel was in an unfamiliar house, but with strangely familiar people. They were in a kitchen, the couple going about their business, casually chatting about their day. Everything seemed strangely peaceful and calm. Yet Riel knew better, she knew she wouldn’t be seeing this if it had a happy ending. There was a sudden crash as the front door, somewhere else in the house, was kicked down. The couple looked up in alarm. A group of three men entered the room, the man stepping in front of his wife protectively. One of the men produced a gun, firing off several rounds into the man’s chest, causing him to fall to the ground, the silencer on his gun dampening any loud gunshots. The woman screamed and made an effort to run, only to be shot in the back and fall at the door that led to their backyard, or so Riel assumed.
“Spread out!” The man who’d shot them commanded. The other two nodded and ran off into the house, returning a few minutes later.
“The boy’s not here sir!” They reported, causing the first one to curse loudly in anger.
“We’ll wait for him then.” He said as he looked to the clock. It was three ten.
Coming out of her vision Riel groaned softly and sank to her knees. So Marcus’ parent’s were still alive, but there was no way she’d be able to get there in time to save them. But she could still save Marcus.
“Riel!” One of her friends cried in alarm, kneeling next to her. “Are you alright?”
“I’m fine.” She dismissed as she stood up slowly. “I just got dizzy suddenly, that’s all but I’m better now.” She gave the girl a small smile and then looked out to the street, rain was pouring down and she wasn’t reveling in the idea of running through it. “Hey, do you know where Marcus Robertson is?”
Her friend seemed a bit confused and but nodded her head slowly. “Yeah… he just got on the bus, probably thought it was too wet to walk home today. Why?”
Riel muttered something under her breath and looked around again. “I have to go. I’ll see you tomorrow alright?” She said as she took off into the rain. He was on a bus, which meant maybe she could intercept him before he got to his house. It wasn’t too far from school. Skidding slightly on the wet grass Riel took off down a small alleyway, hoping she wasn’t too late.
Name: Riel (Ree-ell) Harper
Bio: A relatively quiet and misleading girl in appearance, Riel is your common 'model student'. She does well both academically and in sporting endeavours. She has many friends and is fairly popular in school. However this onset of popularity and academic excellence is a relatively new thing and what people don't realise is that it is all due to her ability to predict the future. It is an ability that has been in her family for generations, and develops at the age of sixteen. She's had her eye on one boy in class in particular for a long time now, long before her ability to see the future began to present itself.
Being part of the bloodline she was, Riel's parents trained her from an early age in many forms of combat, both hand to hand, martial arts and armed. She excels in her speed and agility, though lacks in some physical strength aspects boys her age may present.
