Nazz's Power

I. Own. Nothing. Except for Bella. She's all mine.


Nazz, Sarah, and Bella were sitting in the woods, each against a large tree. Bella and Nazz were thirteen now, while Sarah was only 11. They were talking about when they would get their special powers.

Everyone in the world had their own special hidden power, which they each got at around thirteen, when they went through power-ty, the act of discovering your power and learning how to control it. Each power usually had something to do with the person's personality.

"What do you, like, think my power will be?" Nazz asked the other two girls.

"Ooh, maybe you'll be to control guys," Sarah said.

"Or maybe you'd be able to change how you look just by thinking about it," Bella suggested, "Just like that one woman from Harry Potter, Nymphadora."

"Oh, that'd be rad!" Nazz smiled.

"Yeah, you could be like 'Hmm, I'm getting bored with blond'," Sarah began, "And then 'Poof!' You have purple hair!"

The three laughed.

"But what would my power be?" Bella asked, "I mean, I already have some cat powers."

She drew her cat nails.

"Hmm, maybe you'd have extra good cat vision," Nazz thought.

"And I've heard that cats and, grr, dogs, can sense storms before they are happening," Bella said, "Maybe I'd get that."

"What about me?" Sarah asked, "I mean, I know I'm not getting my power for a while…but still, it's fun to imagine, right?"

"Yeah," Bella nodded and smiled, "Let's see….Maybe you'd be able to make anybody do whatever you want…."

"But doesn't that make me sound like a villian?" Sarah frowned.

"Depends on how you use your power," Nazz said.

"Yeah, like if you tell someone to rob a bank, that's bad," Bella said, "But if you tell someone not to rob that bank, that's good."

Sarah smiled.

"Hey, yeah, I never thought about it like that," She said.

"Oh, I can't wait to get my power," Bella said.

"Yeah, Double D got his a long time ago," Nazz said. Bella laughed.

"Right," She began.

"Knowledge of e'rything," The three girls said together, laughing.

"Man, power-ty is gonna be awesome," Nazz said. Sarah frowned.

"Yeah," She said quietly, "I...bet it will be…."


The next day, Nazz woke up and felt sorta numb, like when your foot falls asleep, but over her whole body. She laid in bed until it passed a few minutes later, then got up and got dressed.

At the table, she was eating breakfast, looking through a fashion magazine. She spotted a girl with a cute hair-do and pictured herself in place of the model. She'd love to have that do, but she didn't know how to make it.

Just then, her mom walked in and smiled.

"I love what you've done with your hair, Nazz," She said.

"Huh?" Nazz looked up at her mom then at a nearby mirror.

Her hair was exactly as the hair-do in the magazine was! Nazz gasped and ran over to the mirror. She smiled and decided to try something else. She imagined herself wearing a cute berret instead of the hair-do. Suddenly, with no sound at all, a French berret replaced the hair-do. She beamed.

"Mom!" She called, running into the kitchen to see her mom using her powers to cook herself some breakfast.

"What is it, baby?" Her mom asked.

"Mom, watch this," Nazz said. She stood there and imagined herself with a cute scarf and purse, and those items appeared around her neck and on her arm, "I got my secret power!"

"Oh, that's amazing!" Nazz's mom smiled and hugged her daughter, "Congratulations, baby!"

"I'm gonna go show my friends," Nazz said. She imagined the cute hair-do again and walked out the door.

Jessica Esa: With a tantalising end to the first chapter, the authour has given us a treat and a welcome addition to the fantasy adventure genre. To limit it to just such would be an injustice however, as this novel clearly draws on elements of historical fiction, fairy tale and horror. Simply, there's someth...
