100-Word Challenge, Day 291

“That is entirely up to you, Justin,” Gloriana says. “You can stay here a little longer, but your welcome will not last more than another night. You cannot use your power and you must not leave my home.” Her tone shifts from casual to serious as she says, “you are a hazard to my people and I do not like risking their wellbeing.”

“I’m sorry,” I say, “but how am I a danger. I won’t hurt them.”

Gloriana laughs and says, “you would not mean to, but you would. They would see you as either someone to hate or as a source of hope. If my people kill you I fear there would be retributions rained down upon us all, and they cannot afford hope.”
