Reign (the girl in the middle) has just discovered some sort of device that is unknown to her and her friends Lucian and Octavian. Lucian is the one on her left and Octavian is one her right. They have been best friends for as long as they could remember. One day they snook out to there secret hide-out spot and found a box (the device) which seemed harmless.
They went to school the next day and couldn't stop thinking of what the box would be. After when they got home, they all met up at Octavian's place and discovered that the box talked. At first, Lucian got scared and threw the box out the window but when they went to go get it the box started to play a weird sound that sounded like words but it was hard to tell.
One night, they all decided to go to a far forest where no one would hear. They brought the box with them and found a button that seemed to shut the voices and put them back on. They were fascinated and more curious as the days went on. Lucian would mess around and move in a funny way, the more often he did so it became natural and the others started to do it too.
On the news, supposedly some creatures called humans have found our planet and are trying to get through the barrier that hides us from them. Now it's too late they have crashed! Humans are killing my people! It must be a miscommunication, we don't mean any harm. Before Octavian, Lucian, and I try to run, they grabbed us and shot Octavian. They kept us to run experiments.
We tried to explain that we are no harm but whenever we tried to escape, one of us would get killed that didn't stop us. Then there was that day where it was only Lucian and I left. They said one of us had to die. One thing to others and Reign was the last one standing. Lucian's lifeless body lied there. My goal from then on was to have an alliance with the humans.
After 2 years of gaining trust with humans, my goal was finally achieved. Reign knew it is what Lucian and Octavian would have wanted for her. She was chosen to be the leader of her kind because even if she was still young we had what it took to be a leader. She may not have her friends by her side but now she has her people besides her.
