had to go to getting herself under control, there was no "might as well", she wasn't going to kill someone again. But how did you do this powers thing anyways? Was Nova just the freak that couldn't control it? Was she just not trying hard enough, was she just being a baby about it? No, she couldn't be the freak, Scott couldn't control himself, he had to wear a visor. "Oh, only if it were only that easy for me!" she cried out loud as she put her hands to her head and laid back in the grass, careful not to knock over any of her piles. She was the dangerous one that couldn't control her powers though. Sure, Scott could kill someone but he could protect people from it, but she could kill people easily with a static shock! "Maybe coming here was a mistake," Nova sighed, sitting back up. Just as she was contemplating how she'd back out of coming to the school she heard footsteps in the grass. She turned around, startled, and her hand knocked over the whole pile of batteries. Before she could say anything she'd already taken in all of the energy from the pile and her eyes were glowing wildly. Well, I'm screwed.
Nova sat in the grassy area just outside the mansion walls with a light bulb in front of her. She grabbed a couple of batteries out of a pile next to her and instantly sucked all their energy out. Her eyes began to glow blue and she bit down on her bottom lip. It hurt a bit every time she did it, but if she was going to be in a crowded area like this school she needed to get her powers under control to keep everyone safe or at least to keep the lights from flickering. She'd gotten far enough since she left home that she could decide when she wanted to feed her energy into something in most situations, rather than just feeding it into the closest conductive surface. As for controlling where she got it from or how much she put in, it was still uncontrollable. She stared at the light bulb in front of her, looking quite out of place in the grass. She took a deep breath, put out her hands, and... BANG! Yet another failure to control how much she put out. She frowned and tossed the light bulb into the pile on the other side of her. It seemed she was going to waste all of the little money she had on light bulbs and batteries. She didn't have much to spend that money on though, Kitty had been nice enough to give her all the clothes she'd ever need and the school fed her, so the money might as well go to protecting the students. No that money
