Did you ever wish that you could be something more than you are? I do. I'm a nothing, dumped at an orphanage as an infant with no idea who my parents were. Were they killed in some kind of accident? Was I stolen at birth? Are my parents out there somewhere, looking for me? I keep telling myself not to worry about it. If they really are out there somewhere, they'll find me, right? I don't have it so bad. I could be stuck at the orphanage, with all the other older kids. No one wants to adopt a teenager. They want the little ones with the angelic faces. But I'm not at the orphanage. They were able to send me to this school for psions. Of course, I think the fact that I broke more than a few windows helped their decision. I'm learning a lot here. The other students don't really talk to me much because I'm the top of the class.
The school is buzzing though now. It's the time of year when the Program comes to pick a student. No one know too much about the Program. It's some government thing, very secretive. All we know is that it has something to do with dragons and only psions are picked for it. They won't pick me though. Sure, I've got more talent in my pinkie than most of the others have in their whole bodies but I'm sure they don't want a girl with no past in their Program.
But wouldn't it be great if I was picked? LOL! Maybe I'd end up being different from all the other Links.
