Fire is one of the fairest things in the world or that is what my mother told me. Fire takes as much as it gives. It takes the cold air and turns it into warmth. It takes wood and give back flames to cook food with and as much as it saves life it can also  take life. Today the blue holy flame shall either take my life or give me a new one in the form of becoming the village’s new shaman of the flame. A title and a duty hold by my mother before the flame had chosen to take her, and making her one with it. The elders of the village was making the final preparation for the ceremony that will happen as the sun rises. I was dressed in a gown made of wool colored in red, orange and black with symbols of fire, sun and on my back a phoenix. I looked into the little mirror that hang on my rooms wall. My red hair was hang down to my shoulders a bobby pin with a fire formed head made sure that my hair didn't come up in front of my eyes. The gown hang both close and lose against my body, my breast was hardly visible by my mother always said that they would grow soon but i don't believe her. And after today i will maybe never find the truth. The gown hang closely to my stomach and down towards my hips, and then became very loose around my legs giving me room to move. There came a soft a knock on the door, i looked toward it and walked over to it and open the door. In the door stood my aunt dressed as in a long white gown and looked at me with worried eyes “the preparations are done and we are ready for you” she said and i could only nod as i walked past her and out to the middle of the village where all stood in a circle around a big blue bonfire and i could feel that their gaze upon my body as i walked towards the bonfire and stopped up in front of it and got down on my knees as my aunt whispers words in an old langues no longer used by others than the elders and with her fingertips sprayed holy water over me and at last placed her lips onto of my head and asked me to rise and take the flames with open arms and so i did i slowly got up on my legs and walked into the bonfire the flames quickly started to eat away the gown starting from my feet and up my legs continued up my stomach, the fire felt both hot and cold against my skin but it didn't burn it now burned away the gown totally away from the front side of my body the only thing left was the phoenix op my back and when the flame started to burn into it a pain as grim as i have never before felt ran down my spine and the light from the blue flames was gone from my eyes as i felt my legs gave away and i felt to the hot ground when i looked up the only thing i saw was a big flaming and incredible beautiful phoenix in front of me. It looked towards me and landed in front of me “and you are the new to bear my mark?” it asked but the sound didn't come from it but within my head. I nodded slowly and couldn't make my head or eyes look away from this creature. The phoenix stopped just a few feets away from me and asked “ what makes you worthy of becoming my next host?” it asked and i looked at it and said “worthy or not i shall and can not decide that all lies in the eyes of those who judges my actions” i said but i didn't feel my lips move but i just knew that this creature had heard my words and stood and thought them through and then it noded “wise words” it said and looked at me and turned into a green flame and came right towards me and into my chest. I wanted to scream of pain but my throat would not let sound or air out of my lungs and as i felt the mark of the phoenix that was on my gown now burn itself onto my back, my red hair burned and turned into orange flames that moved as my body did and my blue eyes turned red and had a flame within them i returned to my or our world as the the villages new shaman of the flame.
