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.

genlynne2379: I read the other review of this book and I must say that I disagree with it wholeheartedly. I do not believe the author put the apostrophes in the names just to be unique, but because the characters are supposedly of a different race than humans. They are Anmah. They should have different names a...

catd69: Karim is a very talented writer. When I started reading his journey it took me into the book and I was in the story till the end. I've never felt this way with any other writers stories. If you want to read a gripping adventure, this will be the one book I would suggest you pick.

Jason Phang: More, I want MORE! Your stories are keeping me from games and (gasp) even sleep! Each chapter brought fresh hooks that I willingly wolfed down (pun intended) and I just couldn't bear going to sleep not knowing what happens next to Lindsay and Wayne. I also loved how the epilogue was done. Excelle...

Jhiane Rabang: The story was so interesting. I loved how the story has plot twists that I can't expect. IT IS VERY HARD TO FIND A BOOK LIKE THIS so I suggest you read this book and I will tell you that it is worth every single second while you read this book. I can't wait to read the rest of the story.

carla1234: I couldn't stop reading this book once I started! it was brilliant! I loved it and I would love to buy it.

Felisa Yoder Osburn: I really enjoyed the story. Civil War stories are some of my favorites and the intertwining of the past with current times was wonderful. I look forward to reading the next stories.

Hudson: Your story was fantastic Erin! The Rising Sun was one of the first stories I read on Inkitt, and I have to say I don't regret the three to four days I spent pouring through the story.Probably the biggest strength I see in your writing is your characterisation of Eliana, Oriens, and the rest of th...

makaylakay: I love love this story! It's written incredibly and well thought-out plot! I love how it's a different twist in fantasy fiction, other then the usual vampire or werewolves. Love the romantics and drawn to the two characters so much already! This book will draw you in within the first chapter and ...

littlebunnypoopoos: Omg this was so amazing! The ending was a little bad and predictable. But otherwise, I need a second book or I'll die :D The character development was excellent and the whole romance, action, and suspense was superb

SPepper: I had a hard time putting this book down even to go to sleep. The story is compelling and beautifully character driven. I hope author will make this a series.

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...

Stephen Warner: To start off, I am thoroughly impressed. The writing style is somewhat unique, and the plot seemed to move at a nice and steady pace. However, I was not expecting this to be a vampire book! I am usually not one for novels about vampires, but I was pleasantly surprised! You wrote with such grace a...

Bri Hoffer: I couldn't put it down!! The characters are all incredibly likable, and it's so descriptive you can see, smell, and feel thier surroundings. Great story, and very well written. I cannot wait for follow up stories. there were a few grammatical errors, but nothing that I could move right over.
