The Elementrals: Powers and Punishments

All Rights Reserved ©


Powers for the worthy, punishments for the others: is the rule the Elementrals, sixteen and raw, have to live by and control elements with regard to. "So we do this for money?" I asked. I had ruined pretty much everything I could have received, now I didn't want to end up as a corrupt, bribed and dishonest hyperventilating dolphin. "You do this for what you owe to the world. You do this to save the salvaged remains of a constantly crumpling world. You do this for accomplishing and proving, Your Highness. Not for the money." Something about her tone made me stop and bite my tongue and prevent me from commenting back. Proving what? That I could be more than just a corrupt, bribed and dishonest hyperventilating dolphin? That I could be more than just a corrupt, bribed and dishonest hyperventilating dolphin. I settled upon this and looked up (I was holding my head down in shame) to see Carla smiling. After all, there is more to me than the image the world painted and the painting that I chose for them to see. If someone is handing the brushes to me again, I will paint what I really am.

I was screaming. I was screaming underwater. I was screaming underwater. It took me not more than five seconds to realize that its okay.

25th April. That day I was turning 6, and I was taking a bath without any supervision. In a bathtub full of water. The place where my thoughts were clearer and I could think about marrying Noddy without anyone asking me where I was lost. There were people outside decorating the house for my birthday and I was thinking about my sky blue frock.

I never noticed that I fell asleep in the bathtub, and I sank further, further and further .

2 hours later, I woke up. An average human being should have died long back. My nose and mouth had been submerged underwater completely, and my skin was wrinkly. I opened my eyes wide, and screamed and screamed till I saw that it wasn’t bubbles escaping my mouth, but a shrill, scared noise of a child. I stopped. I kept quiet. I climbed out the bathtub and finished the rest of the bath with the shower.

I glanced at the water with my scared electric blue eyes and wondered why there was a face there when I opened my eyes.

I stopped screaming when I realized that the same face from 10 years, 4 months and 1 day had disappeared from the swimming pool. For the first time in years, I felt a sense of displacement in water.
