It was 10:30 p.m. when Jim and Blair finished dressing, "You don't think it's late to go see them do you?" Blair asked.

"Let me call and find out." Jim said, and took out his cell phone.

"Kinney?" Brian said, as he answered his phone.

"Brian, this is Jim we were wondering if we can see you today?" Asked Jim

"I don't think today is good, Justin is really tired and I want him to rest." Answered Brian.

"Ok, we'll see you tomorrow morning then." Before Jim could hang up-

"Did something happen?" Inquired Brian.

"Nothing you have to worry about. Answered Jim.

"Are you sure, because if there's something you want to tell us you can come over?" Said Brian.

"No tomorrow is fine, don't worry about it." Said Jim.

"Ok, then good night." Brian said, as he hung up the phone.

"What was that about?" Justin asked.

"Jim, he wanted to know if it was alright if Blair and he could come over." Brian answered, as he began to play with Justin's hair.

"Did he say why they wanted to see us?" Justin asked, loving the felling of Brian touching his hair.

"No, just said that they want to talk to us." Brian said, as he continued to play with Justin's hair.

"Mmmmm that feels good." Justin moaned, as he snuggled into him.

As Justin was getting into the feeling, he felt someone else in his mind. //J'itan, keep your mind closed when you are making love. Every guide in the region can feel you emotions.// A voice said, in his head.

"Oh my god, oh my god." Justin moaned, as he pulled away from Brian.

"What's wrong?" Brian asked, in a shocked voice.

"Blair just told me that when we made love my mind was open." Justin answered, equally shocked.

"What do you mean?" "It seems that when we were making love; my mind block dropped causing other guides in the region to feel what I was feeling." Justin answered, obviously embarrassed.

"Baby, it's ok. There's nothing to be ashamed about." Brian said, in a reassuring voice.

"How can you say that? Do you realize what this means." Justin said, and seemed on the verge of crying.

"Sure I do, so what." Brian said, in his typical arrogant way.

"Brian, don't you understand. If the guides could feel my emotions it means that their Sentinels could feel it too." Explained Justin.

"Tell you what, we'll talk to Jim and Blair tomorrow and find out what we can do." Brian said, in a soothing voice.

"All right, but I want to learn to control my abilities so it doesn't happen again." Justin sounded simply tired now.

"Don't worry you'll learn." Brian said, and settled down next to him.

It was eight o'clock in the morning, when Brian's alarm clock went off causing both men to wake up. An hour later both of them were almost dressed, when there was a knock on the door.

"I wonder who that could be." Justin asked, as he finished dressing.

"It might be Jim and Blair." Brian answered, as he walked toward the door. Opening the door Brian saw that it wasn't Jim and Blair, but a different Sentinel and Guide pair.

"Can I help you gentlemen?"

"Yes, I High senior Sentinel Prime Paul Michaels and my guide Peter Maxwell." Answered the Sentinel.

Before Brian could ask a question Jim and Blair came out of the elevator as well, "What are you doing here?" Jim asked, when he saw the ex-primes.

"What the hell is going on?" Brian asked, seeing the uneasy looks on the ex-primes faces.

"That's what I would like to know, since you were told that you were no longer primes." Jim said, trying to hold in his temper.

Forgetting that he was no longer the Senior Sentinel Prime of Pittsburg and not knowing the old clan laws Paul said, "We didn't think it was fair of you to just decide that I and my guide were no longer Senior Primes."

Without saying a word Jim Ellison High Senior Sentinel Prime of North America grabbed Paul Michaels and slammed him against the wall, "For you information no one cares what you think. The clans of North America have gone back to the old way, so Guides can have their rights too." Jim answered, as he felt his dark side sliding to the fore.

As soon as Paul felt Jim grab him by the collar he knew that he'd gone too far, but he also knew that he couldn't let Jim see him sweat. Taking a deep breath Paul tried to push Jim away, but Jim was younger and stronger than him. He decided to try to placate him.

"High Senior Sentinel Prime, I am sorry for the disrespect, but have you asked the Sentinel/Guides of Pittsburg if they wanted another Senior Prime pair?" Asked Paul.

"Very well; we'll ask the Sentinel/Guide pairs if they want a pair that follows the GDP or a pair that follows the old ways and let's guides have a say in clan matters." Jim said, in a calm voice. (You are going to pay.) Jeme thought to himself.

//Jeme calm down. I can feel your anger growing. // B'ian sent toward Jeme.

//How dare he question my judgment? // //You mean, you haven't felt the difference from the clans that remember the old ways and the clans that don't? // B'ian asked in a shocked voice.

//No, what's the difference? // Jeme said, trying to remember if there was any differences. //The differences are in their body language when their guides are being harassed. If you noticed the Sentinel who remembers the old ways they go into BP mode much faster and much deadlier. // Explained B'ian.

While Jeme and B'ian were talking Brian was keeping an eye on Paul and Peter, because he knew that something was going to happen. It was only a minute before Jim and Blair's dark side subsided and Jim and Blair had come back.

"So are you up to the challenge?' Jim asked, out of the blue.

"What challenge is that?" Paul asked, in a surprised voice.

"To see who the clan of Pittsburgh will pick for their new Sentinel/Guide Primes." Answered Jim.

"I'm up to the challenge, but you're going to have a problem when the clan finds out that they're gay." Paul said, utterly smug.

"If that should happen then the Jaguar clan and its allies will take away our support." Jim answered, back with his own smug look.

This shocked Paul but he knew they couldn't show it because that would mean Jim had won, "You can't take away the support of the other clans." Paul said, trying to hold his shock in.

To cool everyone down, "Why don't we bring this up to the clans and they can make the final decision." Suggested Blair.

"When is the next clan meeting?" Jim asked, while looking at Paul.

"It's in two weeks, before the trial." Answered Blair.

"What trial?" Paul asked, wanting to change the subject.

"Justin was attacked by a homophobic classmate. This caused his powers to come on-line." Answered Brian.

"I'm sorry to hear that." Guide Peter said, in a quiet voice.

"Thank you. But the attack brought Brian and I closer, which is a good thing...but also a bad thing." Justin said, equally quietly.

"What do you mean it's a good thing?" Blair asked, in a surprised voice.

"Well it brought Brian and me closer together and he'll protect me with his life." Justin answered, with a smile.

"Is that the only reason that you are glad it happened?" Asked Blair.

"No, I also love Brian and want to spend the rest of my life with him."

"Brian, what about your?" Asked Jim.

"I didn't know what love or commitment was until Justin got hurt. But I now know that I would die for him and he would die for me." Brian answered, giving Justin a loving smile.

"That's good to know." Jim said, and gave them a smile. He then turned to the other pairs.

"If this will be all we would like to talk to them alone." "Fine, we'll see you at the clan meeting." Paul said, before they walked away.

As soon as Paul and Peter had gone Blair turned toward Justin, "We have to talk." Blair said, as he walked fully into the loft.

"What's wrong?" Justin asked, following him.

"It's your shields you have to learn how to maintain them, even when you're making love." Answered Blair, as he sat down.

"Oh my god!" Justin yelled.

"Calm down, there's no reason to yell." Said Blair.

"Calm down, how can I calm down when other people felt my emotions when I was making love with Brian." Justin yelled again.

"Justin, you're new at this and haven't learned how to control your barrier yet." Blair said trying to inject some calm into the conversation.

"Will you be able to help me?" Justin was quieter now.

"Of course, that's why I'm here." Blair said, as he took Justin's hand.

"When do we start?" Asked Justin.

"We'll start right now." Blair said, as he sat down while pulling Justin with him.

New Abilities 13


Meanwhile, Jim decided to take Brian over to the GDP Sentinel sanctuary, where they were going to meet Vince and his guide.  As Jim and Brian walked in the sanctuary Vince met them.


At the same time Michael was at home trying to come up with a new plane to get ride of Justin, since the bashing to the head didn’t work.  (Stupid kid didn’t know when to hit some one correctly. // Michael thought to him self as he tried to come up with a new plane.  (I have to think of something to get ride of that stupid kid.  He’s become too sure of him self.  There has to be a way to get ride of him with out it getting back to me.) A second later a plan formed, he could get a professional to kill Justin and it won’t get back to him.


Pittsburgh, PD

11:00 a.m.


            In the meantime, Sentinel Vincent Hunter and his guide Sarah walked into the Pittsburgh Police Department and walked straight to the desk sergeant.


“Can I help you?” Asked the sergeant.


“Yes, I’m Captain Vincent Hunter and I would like to talk the commissioner.” Answered Vince.”


“One minute sir.” The sergeant said, picking up the phone.


As soon as the sergeant picked up the phone, Hunter turned up his hearing, //Commander Stockwell there’s a Captain Vincent Hunter here to see you. //


//Tell him I’m no here and have him leave a message. // Stockwell said, before he hung up.


After hanging up the phone, “I’m sorry sir, but commander Stockwell isn’t in today.  Would you like to leave a message?” Said the sergeant.


“Sergeant, I’m not a fool.  Now call the commander back and tell him that Captain Vincent Hunter from IA and Sentinel Shield to the High Senior Sentinel/Guide Prime of North America.” Vincent said, while giving the Sergeant a hard cold look.


Realizing that he was dealing with a Sentinel and an IA Captain the sergeant picked up the phone again, “I’m sorry to bother you again sir, but Captain Hunter knows you’re in.  He’s a Sentinel sir.” Said the sergeant.


When the sergeant picked up the phone again Vince turned up his hearing again, //what is it now sergeant? // Asked Stockwell.


//I’m sorry to bother you again sir, but Captain Hunter knows you’re in.  He’s a Sentinel sir. // Answered the sergeant.


//Fine, let him though. // Stockwell said, in a resigned voice.


When the sergeant put down the phone, Vince lowered his hearing, “You may go up sir.” Said the sergeant.


“Come on Sarah.” Vince said, as he walked away.


A minute later Vince and Sarah arrive at Stockwell’s office, “Captain Hunter please come in.” Stockwell said, as he meet Vince and Sarah.


Walking in, “Let’s get down to business.  I want to know why Chris Hobbs was let out after he bashed Justin Taylor.” Asked Vince.


“His parent paid the bail money, so we had to let him go.” Stockwell answered, while trying not to look at Sarah who was sitting next to Hunter.


As-soon-as Stockwell began to talk, Hunter turned up his hearing so he could tell if he was lying or not.  When Hunter turned up his hearing Sarah took his hand to keep him grounded so he wouldn’t zone out.


“Did he see a judge?” Asked Vince.


“Of course.” Answered Stockwell.


//Vince he’s lying. // Sent Sarah.


//I know, his heart is beating really fast. // Vince sent back.  “Stockwell, I know you’re lying and if I find out that you let a suspect out with out seeing a judge I’ll make sure you pay.” Said Vince.


“Captain Hunter, your are IA in Cascade, not here.” Stockwell said, with a smug smile.


“Actually, I’m IA of North America.” Vince said, with a smug smile of his own.  “I bet you want to know how that happened?  See I’m the Shield to the High Senior Sentinel/Guide Prime of North America, which gives me a lot of leeway.  It also allows me to investigate anyone I want in North America.  See clan law supersedes regular law.” Vince explained, while giving Stockwell a smug smile.


“I don’t know what to tell you, but he did see a judge.” Answered Stockwell.


“Ok, who’s the judge?  I’ll see him.” Asked Vince.


“Why are you so interested in this case?” Inquired Stockwell.


“Because the boy who was bashed is now a guide and his lover is his Sentinel; which makes this a clan matter.” Vince answered, as he stood up.


“What do you mean this is a clan matter?” Stockwell asked, become worried.


“Well after the bashing the High Senior Guide Prime felt Justin come on line and he wanted to meet and find out what happened.” Vince answered, before walking out.


“What’s going to happen to the boy?” asked Stockwell.


“He will be tried by the clan for attacking a guide.” Answered Vince.  Before leaving Vince turned around, “I should worn you that the High Senior Sentinel Prime of North America is going to come and see you.”


“Vince, that man was homophobic in the worst possible way.” Sarah said, as they walked out.


“I know, his heart spiked every time we talk about Justin and the bashing.” Vince answered, as they got into the car.


“What’s going to happen to Stockwell?” Wondered Sarah.


“Right now we can’t do anything.” Answered Vince.  “But if we find out that he told his people not to investigate the attack and leave it alone, then he will be dealt with.”


GDP Headquarters

12:00 p.m.


It was an hour later that Vince and Sarah arrived and were meet by Senior Sentinel Prime Edwards, “What did you find out?”


“Nothing satisfactory, but I have the felling that Stockwell is heeding something.” Vince answered, as they walked into the headquarters.


“Well Jim found out something very interesting.” Said Edwards.


“What?” Vince asked, as he sat down and pulled Sarah down with him.


“It seems that the clan here doesn’t get their Senior Primes by battle, but by age.” Edwards answered, with a smile.


“What the hell does that mean?” Asked Vince.


“It means that this clan picks their leaders by their age, not by strength.” Answered Edwards.


“What did Jim do?” Inquired Sarah, in a quite voice.


“I don’t know yet, but I do know something interesting that happened.” Announced Edwards.


Before Edwards could answer, “Justin was having sex and he opened his pathways and all the guides felt what was happing.” Sarah said, in a small voice.


“Sarah did you fell the what the other guides felt?” Vince asked, trying to control his temper.


“Just for a second, before Blair blocked in pathways.” Sarah answered, while hiding her face.


“Why didn’t you tell me?” Vince asked, trying not to raise his voice.


“Because, I didn’t know what was happening.” Sarah answered, in a shy voice.


Turning toward Edwards, “What happened with David?” Inquired Vince.


“He got the full force of Justin’s feelings; which caused him to go down.” Edwards answered, as he took David’s hand.


“Did anything happen to you?” Sarah asked, in a quite voice.


“I lost control of my senses for about a minute and so did the rest of the Sentinels.” Answered Edwards.


“Is Justin going to be in trouble?” Asked Sarah.


“No, Blair is going to teach him how to control his abilities so he doesn’t loss control again.” Answered David.


‘That’s good.” Said Sarah.


“Where’s Jim now?” Asked Vince.


“I don’t know, let me call him.” Edwards said, as he took out his cell phone.  Dialing Jim’s number, “Hey, where are you now?”


Jim’s Trunk


At the same time, Jim Ellison and Brian Kinney where diving toward the GDP when his phone range, “Ellison.” Answered Jim.


“Hey, where are you now?” The voice said, on the other end.


“We’re headed toward the GDP.” Answered Jim.  “Edwards, where are you now?”


“I’m at the GDP along with Vince.” Answered Edwards.


“Good, we’ll see you there.”  Jim said.  “Could you send David and Sarah too Blair, he might need their help?”


“I don’t mind sending David, but I don’t think Vince will send Sarah.” Said Edwards.


“Let me talk to Vince.” Said Jim.


“Yea.” Vince said, as he took the phone.


“I would like for you to send Sarah to Blair so she and David can help him with Justin.” Said Jim.


“I’m not sending her there….”


Before Vince could finish, “Vince, nothing is going to happen to here.  Blair is there.” Said Jim.


“Fine, but if anything happens to her he’s a dead man.” Vince answered, in a tight voice.


“Only if you could get through his Sentinel.” Jim said, with a laugh.


“Very funny, but I mean it…”


“Nothing is going to happen to her.” Jim said, before Vince could finish his sentence.


“Ok, I’ll send her over.” Vince said, before ganging up.


“Why are you sending the other guides there?” Inquired Brian.


“To help Blair teach Justin how to controlling his abilities.” Answered Jim.


GDP Headquarters


Once Vince gung up he turned toward Sarah, “I want you and David to go to where Blair is and help him with Justin.” Vince said, in a soft voice.


“Will Edwards let David go?” Asked Sarah.


Turning toward Edwards, “Well, are you letting him go?” Inquired Vince.


Looking at David, Edwards sees the termination in his eyes, “Yea, he can go.” Answers Edwards.


“I want you to go with someone who will protect you.” Said Vince.


“Vince we’ll be fine, don’t worry.” Sarah said, before she and David walked out.


New Abilities 14

Just as Sarah and David walk out of the GDP headquarters Jim drove up.

"Be careful and call me when you get there." Said Jim.

It was thirty minutes later when David and Sarah arrived at the loft. As they where walking up the stairs they passed a man going down.

//Wow she's hot. I would love to get into her pants. // Thought the guy.

As Sarah and David received these thoughts, David was going to attack the man, but was stopped by Sarah who knew that the guy could beat David up. They just continued to walk up the stairs. When they reached the loft. David was about to knock when Blair's voice in his head told him to come in. When David and Sarah walked in they saw Blair and Justin sitting on the floor meditating.

Without looking up, "I want both of you to join us." Blair said, in a quiet voice.

Knowing not to argue with Blair, Sarah and David both sat down and began to meditate also. Five minutes into their meditation Sarah and David began to feel different, and when they opened their eyes they saw that they were in the spirit world.

//Hello, young ones. // A voice said, behind them.

Turning around they saw an old Indian man standing there. //Hello, may I ask who you are? // Asked Sarah.

//I am the guide of the forest, but you can call me Incacha. // Answered the guide.

//May I ask what you guide. // Sarah asked, in a quiet voice.

//I guide those that come here for their dream quest or who wish to know about their past. // Answered Incacha.

//What do you mean our past? // Inquired David.

With a smile, //everyone who is part of the Panther Clan has a past with the Dark Sentinel and Guide. // Answered Incacha.

Turning toward Sarah, //Sarah, did you know this? // David asked, in an amazed voice.

//Yes, I had a dream about Jim and Blair in their old life. I was there and so was Hunter, who we learned was the Shield to B'ian. // Replied Sarah quietly.

//Do you know what your name was? // Asked David.

//No, I never heard it spoken. // Answered Sarah.

//Your name was S'iana and Vince's' name was Va'ince.

//Blair said, as he walked up to them.// Following Blair was Justin who was wearing native attire.

//How do you know this Blair? // Inquired David.

//I am not Blair; I am B'ian his dark side. // Answered B'ian.

//What's going to happen now? // Asked Sarah.

//Now, you will learn about your past and connect with your dark sides. // Responded B'ian.

//Do you know what my name was? // Inquired David.

//No, but we will learn it today. // Answered B'ian.

//Can I ask how we are going to learn? // Asked David.

With a smile on B'ian's face, //I want you to all sit down, and I'll show you. // B'ian answered, as he sat down. B'ian then crossed his legs and began to chant.

Looking at each other they all shrugged, sat down and then crossed their legs and began to chant themselves. As they were chanting they all began to see different things in from their past life.

Meanwhile, Jim, Vince, and Brian were at the GDP head quarters going over everything Brian knew about Chris Hobbs and what Vince had learned about Jim Stockwell.

"So, what can you tell me about this Hobbs kid?" Inquired Jim.

"He's a homophobic little prick." Answered Brian.

"I know he's homophobic, but what else can you tell me about him?" Jim asked, again. "I don't know, but I can always ask Daphne." Answered Brian.

"Who's Daphne?" Asked Vince.

"She's Justin's best friend and they went to school together." Brian answered, as he took out his cell phone.

"Daphne." Daphne said, as she answered the phone. "Daphne, this is Brian I need a favor." Said Brian.

"Sure anything Bri, what is it?" Asked Daph.

"Could you come over to the GDP headquarters, I need to ask you a question." Answered Brian. "Sure, I'll be there in 30 minutes." Daphne answered, before hanging up.

"She'll be here in 30 minutes, and we can ask her about Hobbs." Announced Brian.

"Good, let me tell the guards to show her in when she arrives." Jim said, and picked up the phone.

Thirty minutes later, Daphne arrived at the GDP and was shown to the Sentinel suites. As she walked in Daphne saw that Brian wasn't alone, there were two men with him, who gave here the impression that they meant business.

"Jim, Hunter this is Daphne Chandler. Daph this is High Senior Sentinel Prime Jim Ellison and Shield Sentinel Vincent Hunter." Introduced Brian.

Turning toward Brian, "What can I do for you?" Asked Daphne.

"We want to know everything you know about Chris Hobbs." Answered Brian.

"Ok." Daphne said, and began to tell them everything she knew about Chris Hobbs and his hatred of Justin.

Thirty minutes later..."Daph, I think that's enough." Interrupted Brian.

"Ok." Daphne said, as she smiled at Brian.

"Thank you very much Ms. Chandler." Jim said, as Daphne was leaving.

"It was nothing Mr. Ellison." Daphne said, as she was leaving.

Turning back toward the two men, "Now what do you want to do?" Asked Brian.

"We use the information that Daphne gave us and use it against Hobbs." Answered Jim.

"We should also try to find out more about Stockwell. There's just something about him that I don't like." Said Vince.

"Did you get something from him that set your senses off?" Inquired Jim.

"No, Sarah felt something from him, but she didn't dare open her pathways too much." Answered Vince.

"I guess Blair and I will have to visit Mr. Stockwell." Jim said, with a smile.

"Do you really think Stockwell will see you?" Asked Brian.

"He'll see us or I'll enforce one of the clan laws." Answered Jim.

Just then all three Sentinels felt something happen to them, it was like their dark sides wanted to come out. At first they didn't know what to do, but then Jim felt Blair's dark side mingling with his.

"Wow, what just happened?" Brian asked, a second later.

"You guides just learned about their dark side." Answered Jim, with a hard edge to his voice.

"Is that a good idea?" Inquired Brian.

"It should make their empathic abilities a little stronger." Answered Jim. A minute later Jim felt a pulling on his mind, //Jeme, it's worked. They've all discovered their dark side. //

//Will it cost me my position? // Inquired Jeme.

//No, I can control them. // Answered B'ian.

//That's good. Do you want me to pick you up? // Asked Jeme.

//Yes, I want them to show off their abilities. // Answered B'ian.

//That's fine. While they're bragging we'll visit the police commission. // Announced Jeme.

//Why? // Asked B'ian.

//I want you to read him and find out anything you can bout him. //Answered Jeme.

//All right. When do you want to pick me up? // Inquired B'ian.

//How about now and the guides could show their powers, while we talk to the commissioner. // Answered Jeme.

//Ok, see you. // B'ian said, before closing off their connection.

"I just spoke with Blair and he wants me to pick them." Announced Jim.

"What do you mean you just spoke with Blair?" Brian asked, in a shocked voice.

"We can communicate telepathically." Jim answered, with a smile.

"Shit, that means I'll be able to do the same thing?" Brian asked, trying not to sound scared.

"Only if you want to." Vince answered, picking up Brian's heartbeat.

"Fuck, don't scare me like that." Brian said, as he walked away.

"Why'd you tell him that? You know that he doesn't have a choice." Said Edwards.

"I know, but I think he should learn it on his own. That way he doesn't feel like he's being manipulated." Explained Vince.

As Brian was walking away from Vince, he realized that he did want to be able to talk to Justin telepathically. With that thought on his mind Brian went to talk with Jim about letting him come with him.

"Jim, I was wondering if I can come with you, when you pick up Blair?" Brian asked, as he walked over toward Jim.

"Everyone is coming, so they can learn about the dark side that's going to come out slowly." Jim answered, with a smile.

"Why is our dark side going to come out?" Asked Edwards.

"Because the guides dark side is now out and when you bond...yours will come out." Jim explained as he got into the truck.
