"I'm a super hero" the voice whispered. "I'll have us free in a moment."
Lily didn't say anything, she realized her vocal cords seemed to be
paralyzed. Who could this female super hero be? She must be
invisible, She grunted, the only noise she could make.
"Good, I have super hearing, you know." Lily didn't know, but she
grunted again. "Hold on, I'll be right with you!"
Suddenly there came several muffled bangs, and the bindings on the
wrists and ankles of the tiny girl on the table exploded. She climbed
stiffly to her feet and tottered to the wall.
"This may sting a little" the voice spoke in Lily's ear, but the
girl's lips didn't move. The brackets holding her to the wall
suddenly started to vibrate, and then they seemed to just fall apart.
"Good, I'm getting better at it!" the voice said in satisfaction
-but her lips still didn't move. "We had better hurry before someone
notices we're free."
But it appeared to be too late - a strange wailing sound, probably an
alarm, was blaring - and the people on the other tables throughout the
room were suddenly moving. Lily pushed the smaller girl to the floor
and fell on top of her, and a rock smashed into the wall where her
head had been, just an instant before. A rock thrown by one of the
throng of humans advancing their way!
