I sighed. I wasn't sure I wanted to tell Kent what was going on, but then again he asked, right? And maybe it would help to get it off my chest.
"Everyone on my team has powers, but me. I wish I could say it doesn't bother, but it does and I feel like if I said this to them, they'd just think I was a spoiled brat."
"One. Wishing for something doesn't make you a spoiled brat, Ruby. Two, you don't need powers to be a hero, right? You were chosen to the team leader for a reason."
"That was more like luck, I believe. A coincidence."
"I've never believed in coincidences myself."
"Then what do you believe in, Kent?"
"I believe in good and bad karma. I also believe that our powers choose us. Do you think I wanted to be a Wish Granter or Headmaster? Nope, never. I wanted to be a jewelry designer. Listen, Ruby. I see something very special in you. Something that's going to make you a great and powerful team leader. Let's get back to your team now, shall we?"
Kent and I linked arms. Jasper ran over to me. "Oh, Ruby. Thank God, you're okay. You are okay, right?"
"I'm fine. I just needed to recover from the shock. What's next on the agenda?" Grim cleared his throat and we all turned our attention back to him.
"Welcome back, Ruby. The next thing on your agenda? You aren't going to like it, but it's necessary. It's to defeat a werewolf."
