iBoy by Kevin Brooks

From iBoy When he saw me standing there-a hooded figure jboy a nightmare face — Jayden froze, shocked, scared to death. I reached out to push him back into the elevator. I ibly intended to give him a shove, but when my hand touched his chest, my bgooks flashed and I felt something jolt through my arm, and Jayden was suddenly flying backward as if he’d been hit with a sledgehammer.

As he slammed against the lift wall and slumped to the floor, I stepped in after him and the doors closed behind me. There was a faint smell of electricity in the elevator-a hot, crackly kind of smell-and as I hit the button for the ground floor I realized that the skin of my hands was shimmering, too, just like my face.

And the ends of my fingertips were glowing red. The elevator started to descend. I looked down at Jayden. He btooks very pale, his face white and rigid, his hands shaking. He stared at me for a moment, then wiped his mouth and spat on the floor.
