Chapter 9

I was momentarily dazed and struggled to get back to my feet. I was also having a hard time catching my breath, having had the wind knocked completely out of me. I glanced around and saw that I was at the back of the nullifier cell. I rubbed my chest where I’d been hit and felt something warm. Looking down, I noticed a scorch mark on the front of my shirt; it was still smoking. It was then that I realized what had happened.

Electra had blasted me. Judging from where I picked myself up off the floor, her power had blown me all the way to the back of the cell. When I had leaned in thinking of an electrifying kiss, she’d been thinking about electrocuting me. Apparently, my mother was right. Guys are stupid, and some girls can’t be trusted. It was so comical I almost laughed. So much for this date.

I tried to teleport. Nothing happened. That’s when the full import of everything hit me. Not only was I in the nullifier cell, it was on and in full effect! At the front of the cell, I saw that the force field was in operation, too. Through it, I could see Electra apparently arguing vigorously with Mouse and the other four teens. Their voices were loud, but I couldn’t make out the words so I walked to the front of the cell until I could understand what was being said.

“…this while we’re in the middle of an op to get Kid Sensation!” Mouse was saying.

“You don’t need an op to find Kid Sensation!” Electra retorted, before gesturing wildly in my direction. “He is Kid Sensation!”

“And just how do you know that?” Aqua asked.

“His bioelectric field!”

“What?” Nemesis responded, confused. At this point, I was interested myself, so I moved even closer.

“His body’s bioelectric field,” Electra slowly repeated. “Everybody has one.”

“So what?” Aqua asked.

“She can sense them,” Mouse responded, before Electra could speak. “Bioelectric fields. It’s part of her power.”

He turned and looked at me before continuing. “With her, a bioelectric field is as good as a picture or a fingerprint. She can identify somebody with it the way you and I can pick people out of a lineup.”

I couldn’t help but laugh this time. All that crazy stuff that I’d gone through to maintain my anonymity: shapeshifting, removing fingerprints, altering brainwaves…and then someone just identifies me by my bioelectric field.

“What’s so funny?” Herc queried, but I ignored him and kept right on laughing. Mouse turned his attention back to Electra, ignoring me for the moment.

“You say that he’s Kid Sensation,” he began. “Assuming he is, when did you figure that out?”

“Today, at the football game,” she replied. “I knew as soon as I got close enough to him to feel his field.”

“Well, why didn’t you tell anybody, instead of going through all this?” He made an expansive gesture that took in me, the cell, and more. I sobered up at this, my laughter dying away; here was an explanation I wanted to hear.
