I awoke with a splitting headache. The kind that left you miserable, doubled over in pain and wondering what in the hell you did to deserve it. Stumbling out of bed, I managed to crawl my way to the cabinet and retrieve a bottle of high dosage pain medicine. Cupping water from the tap in my hands, I washed down two pills and collapsed on the bathroom floor. The pain began to dull after a few strenuous minutes at which point I managed to stand up and study my reflection. There were no visible wounds or bruises so it certainly wasn an injury that caused me to wake up feeling like shit. I had also never drank, not that I had the money or friends to do so with, so I wasn hung over.
As the pain continued to fade, I decided to just take a shower and hope everything went back to normal. As I scrubbed myself down, it dawned on me that today was also the start of senior year at my new highschool. Maybe my sudden morning headache was the result of stress? I remembered reading about some mild illnesses being caused by stress. It sounded unlikely but I wasn experiencing any other symptoms. After changing and making sure my backpack was packed, I entered the kitchen. sitting on the table was a note from my mom.
Have a good first day at school sweetie 🙂
despite clearly being my mothers handwriting. the note felt off. she was definitely kind but had always been more formal. The smiley face at the end looked especially weird. Maybe she was just worried, I thought as I poured myself a bowl of cereal. I was a loner after all. After eating, I opened the door and stepped outside. I watched in utter shock as a woman in a business suit floated by our apartment, hovering several feet of the ground. I immediately slammed the door shut and ripped open my backpack. ”what the ** did I just take ” I asked myself while pulling the bottle of pain pills out. I triple checked the dosage and expiration date. It wasn the pills.
I hesitantly opened the door and peeked outside. Thankfully there were no flying women. What I did see however was still surprising. A young girl with bunny ears walking next to her father. A lady in a sports bra, running so fast I nearly didn see her. A shopkeeper extending her arms to almost inhuman lengths and thrusting newspapers in an anoyed passerbys face.
”Oh, Suzies boy. You
e up early. ” I turned and saw the apartments owner moving her hands and creating a small dust tornado that absorbed fallen leaves and loose trash. I had only met her once when we first moved here several weeks ago. ”Um, yea. ” I responded, still in a daze.
She moved the small whirlwind of trash over an open trash bag in her arms and deposited it inside. ”Its been a while since Ive seen you, still as cute as ever. Has school started yet? ” She asked. I nodded while clenching my fist, ”It starts today. Im a senior. ” I wasn a fan of being called cute. especially because my short stature and face led many to believe I was younger than my actual age. ”Oh, Then you must be turning 18 soon. ” She asked. Her gaze looked almost, hungry. ”In a few months ” After that, she hurriedly excused herself and left.
I immediately opened my phone as I stood outside the apartment door and searched the term super powers in my phone. None of the results talked about quirks or a universe splitting snap so I didn suddenly wake up in MHA or the MCU but the results were still odd.
How to strengthen your powers.
What powers turn guys on.
Which types of powers can be used in public
Are my powers weird?
When will my daughter awaken her powers
Every recommended article or search seemed to indicate that superpowers were a pretty normal thing. Thankfully, it seemed I wasn loosing my mind, but I was pretty certain now that this wasn my world. At least, not how I remembered it. several more searches confirmed it. to sum it up, all women had natural superpowers while men didn . Gender roles were also flipped meaning that women were the heads of household and we
e viewed as the protectors and workers while men were homemakers and caretakers. similar to my old world, I suspected the gender roles were more nuanced but I didn have time to research because an alarm suddenly went off on my phone.
School First Day – 8:30
I glanced at the time and realized it was already 8:20. I made sure the door was locked behind me and took off running. The night before, I was worried about transferring to a new school. Little did I know I would be starting my senior year in a whole new world.
As I neared Stillwater High, I began to see more and more female students with powers or visible mutations. As I passed the school gates, I realized they were starring back. shit, I thought to myself as I quickly looked at the ground. Of course they would find it creepy if some kid was openly gawking at them. I knew that girls with animal ears or girls using magic was normal in this world but it still felt so unreal to me. I managed to make it inside before the bell rang and pulled up my class schedule on my phone.
I had no idea where room D207 so I wandered around aimlessly, hoping to stumble upon it. I could have asked someone but I was still fairly overwhelmed with the realization that I had woken up in another world.
”Are you lost?
” A girl asked me. She like most people was taller than me. Her semi-formal clothes, long black hair, and glasses gave off a very serious vibe.
”Sorry, Its my first day, do you know where D207 is?
” She smiled while extending her hand,
”of course lets go before we
e late. ” I grabbed her hand as her eyes widened ”wait, you
e a senior? ” The bell rung again indicating that classes had started. ”Hold on tight! ” she said as my vision blurred and the world seemed to warp around us. I opened my eyes and found myself standing in front of a room full of students. ”Sorry Im late class ” the girl next to me said. I turned twords her as my vision focused. ”Wait, you
e a teacher? ”
