She hadn't expected to see anyone, she hadn't seen anyone coming. And Billie almost always saw them coming. One minute she was walking, the next minute something very strong had her arm. She'd opened her mouth to say something like 'ow, what the hell!' when the person started talking. Billie's head jerked in the direction of the voice, and her eyes went wide.
It was the hell god. And the hell god was looking a little crazy. And sounding a little crazy. Billie leaned back as the other hand came toward her, and then her own hand flew up. She used her power to release her arm, and then send the hell god flying back.
Then Billie turned to run. Not toward the apartment, or toward her house, just away. Because she couldn't lead the God to anyone innocent.
What were the chances that Christy was going to hear her if she started screaming. Christy! Billie screamed in her own head. Please, god, let her hear. With Christy hear maybe she stood a chance. Her sister had said no one was going to get them, no matter what it took. No one was tearing them apart. Focusing her power as she ran, she sent her image back to the house, to her sister. She'd made copies of herself and Christy before.
