The water bursts out of an opened hand
The elemental drenches Her own homeland
She fires the ice that formed in her heart
At her once happy village
But she no longer cares, she doesn’t wish to be this way, her element forces her to part
She was once loved, once had her own dreams, and loves, but those vanished a long time ago
Her heart is now ice stone
She didn’t ask for this, has no wish to be filled with water instead of blood
Has no wish to flood
Her only friend, a Fire elemental, becomes her only enemy
His eyes turn red, Her anger turns to fear
Fear that she will always be this hateful version of a fallen girl
Fear that no one will ever want to come near
Her eyes turn blue; she takes the ocean and throws it at that annoying Fire
But, realized her mistake was very dire
For, too late, her body is taken over by that strange fire
He picks her limp, still alive, body
Throws it over His fire body, and takes her to where the oceans merge
Throws her in and waits for her to emerge
The water rises; she holds a sword made of her power
She floats over to her captor
And in a fit of anger
Tries to slice him with her new power
But, apparently, there are rules
Elementals are never to punch or use their power on others with Powers
They are at the mercy of their instincts
Never allowed to kill
And never allowed to take over someone’s free will
