I pulled into my driveway after work; it was a pretty gloomy day. I was home by myself again. So I worked on some of my homework, and I cooked up some brats’ sautéed in some red peppers and sat down on my lazy boy to eat them. I went to turn on the TV but it was out again. Then I was forced to watch my pet birds while I ate for entertainment. I lost all interest in staying up to finish my homework or to clean the house that night so I went straight to bed. When I woke up to my alarm clock it sounded different than it normally did. Instead of the irritating buzzing sound, it sounded a lot like my favorite song. I tried to bend over to turn it off but my back suddenly felt like a knife was jabbing into it. When I stopped moving I then realized I was paralyzed and couldn’t move. My body wasn’t responding to anything I was trying to tell it to do. All I could think about then is what I had to look forward to in life and what else I wish I could have done before I died. Suddenly a sensation went through my body. It was a familiar one that I was trying so hard to forget about, the pain of heartbreak. It was like a hand was inside of my chest squeezing my heart until it had nothing left. I felt sad and lonely. As these feelings were passing through me I noticed an aura that was forming around my body. I could see that it was moving like thick sticky foam of some sort. The color of this foam also appeared to be black, almost of a muddy texture. Then, just when I thought I couldn’t take it anymore and would rather just die, a different sensation started to run through my body. It was also faintly familiar to a feeling I’ve felt before, almost the opposite of my last feelings. I felt like I had all of the energy in the world! My heart seemed like it was expanding, I felt like I could accomplish anything and that I could even fly. Then the aura that was around me changed shape and color, it then appeared to move like blue and white electricity moving in and out of my body. The sensation felt like it was overpowering me, and the electricity was expanding while getting brighter, and moving faster and faster. Until it went out of control and blew up, like a bomb. When I came back to consciousness I wasn’t in my bed anymore. I was lying in the middle of a park. I stopped someone that was walking by to ask them where I was. She told me that I was in Central Park in New York City! I was confused and didn’t understand how I ended up here. But then I remembered what happened earlier. Next, I found an alley that wasn’t visible to the pedestrians walking by and I tried to recreate the power that brought me here. It was hard at first to summon it back out of my body, but eventually it started to become natural. I figured out how to shoot bolts of lightning out of my hands, I could stick myself to walls, I could hover in the air and fly around, electronics could be controlled from a distance with just a thought, I could absorb electricity and information from random electronics within seconds, and I could move extremely fast, almost invisible to the naked eye. I felt like I was in some kind of superhero comic book and that everything was being planned out for me. But at the time I didn’t care. I didn’t know how I got this power or where it came from; all I could think about is putting this power into a good use. So next I had to come up with a plan. Obviously, like in all movies, I needed a disguise so that I could use my power in an alter ego form but still having the freedom to move around in my everyday apparel. I also needed money to do this and to get a place to sleep, and I needed to get in contact with my friends and family to let them know that I’m alright. I decided to go to a library and to find a computer with access to the internet. I looked up everything I ever wanted to know and everything I would ever need to know. I instantly learned all the different styles in fighting, how to hack into bank accounts, there was even information on how to hack into government computers and satellites. I first set up a few new bank accounts under different names, looked up some of the most overpaid CTO’s and company presidents and took a small percentage out of each of their accounts and put it all into my own, but just enough to get me a place to stay, food, equipment, and some new cloths. After that I looked up all the information that I could find about me. What I discovered was that I was passed out for two weeks. There was an investigation but my apartment was completely destroyed and I was presumed dead due to an unnatural disaster. They even had a funeral for me already. I thought to myself, “How could I put my family and friends though seeing me suddenly alive again, while having these powers I would also be a burden and I would ruin their normal life styles, and with this power I might die eventually anyways, I couldn’t put everyone through two funerals for the same person.” Right there I left my old life behind. Only keeping the memories of everyone and remembering that they’re who I’m doing this for. With my new cloth and new life style I started to do research on how to cure different diseases such as cancer and myeloma while listening to the police lines for anything that I could help with. I found cures for many diseases and dropped them off at the closest research centers while saving thousands of lives. But one day I overheard talk about a crime spree that was completely different from the others I had encountered. There were reports of a man who could shoot fire from out of his body, robbing multiple banks and killing every cop he could see. I went after this fire man, but he was just as strong as I was. We had epic battles daily, for months, but they would always turn into a draw. I couldn’t let the cops try to lend a hand either because I didn’t want them to get hurt. Eventually it turned into a game for him. He would stir up some havoc and set up traps where I would have to choose between chasing him and saving innocent civilians. During another fight while we had our hands locked throwing each other around, a new face came into the scene. She was extremely attractive and could control water and morph herself into any shape she felt like as well. But she wanted the same thing the fire guy did, money, fame, and power. She attacked us and we both decided to team up to try and defeat her, but she was too strong. More months went by and I could do nothing to stop her, until someone else came into play. This girl, who was also conspicuous, had the power to summon different plants and vines to aid her in conflicts. But this time she was on my side, and her plants flourished in the water, so the water girl was pushed down off her pedestal and forced to live underground. Soon after that battle the plant girl fallowed me everywhere, we showed each other our real selves, she lived with me, and she talked to me and shared feelings as if she was my best friend, and she did become my best friend over time. But just as we thought we finally got the world straightened out another evil came out of nowhere. This man was built like an ogre, and had control over ice and could summon it wherever he wanted to. He was first seen in Russia and there were videos of him killing thousands of soldiers with his ice spikes. It was a gruesome sight. The plant girl and I looked at each other and we both knew what we had to do. So we packed up and headed towards an airport to try and stop the monster before he could reach the United States. But when we got there, the fire man and water woman were waiting for us. They were rude and sarcastic but it was almost like they were concerned about us and they asked to come with. Over time I guess all of us grew a connection with each other in a way. All of us headed to Russia in a commercial jet that the government supplied for us. When we got there it took a few days to find him. It was mid day, clouds were covering the sky. I watched him casually walk towards us as he was killing soldiers who were in his sights. His face appeared to be cold, like he didn’t have a heart or soul. All of the screams of pain and death didn’t even make him blink. The water woman got tired of waiting, and recklessly went in for an attack. But as soon as she got within fifty feet of him, he exhaled out a chilling haze from out of his nose and she froze instantly. Then before we could do anything, he punched the ground and she shattered into pieces. This made the fire guy radiate with anger and he sprinted towards the ice man surrounded in a ball of fire, and attacked him. All we could see were flames everywhere. It was too bright to look at. Then suddenly the flames went away. We could see into the distance, the fire guy was on his knees with a giant icicle sticking through his chest. The ice man than glared at us and started walking toward us. I made a move towards him but he shot some sort of icy wind funnel at me and stuck me to a wall, immobilizing me. The plant girl tried her best with everything she had. Trees, vines, large and aggressive Venus flytraps. But they all froze and withered away when they got too close to him. The ice man then froze her feet to the ground so she couldn’t move. As he got next to her he grabbed her face, and as she was looking at me in tears, he kissed her on the lips and she froze solid instantly. He then looked at me, smiled, and flicked her in the chest. The plant girl, my new best friend shattered into pieces. My heart became furious with anger at that moment. As he was slowly walking towards me, I busted out of my restraints with my powers and attacked him with everything I had. Still, even with the feeling of vengeance for my friends, I wasn’t strong enough. When I reached my limits he shot a spike half way through my spine. Then he lifted me up with that spike until I was eye level with him. He said to me, “Is this the best you can do? You have all of that emotion, all of that power and yet you can’t make a worthy attempt to save your world? You’re pathetic. You’re just another fire that needs to be put to rest. You don’t deserve to live!” Then he put his hands on my arms and started squeezing me. I screamed in pain, I was lost and desperate for any sign of hope. Then I looked up at the sky, and remembered my old life. My friends, my family, my first love, all of them were depending on me to protect them. I felt that good sensation rush through my body again. My eyes started to glow, my body was surrounded by the aura again, and then everything went silent. You couldn’t hear a single sound, the wind, the ice, the sound of my bones cracking, all of it was silent. Then I watched as an enormous lightning bolt came from the sky directly at us. When I woke up, I was in the middle of a crater. It was around five miles around. The ice man was nowhere to be found. So I presumed he was dead. Now I was confused. I asked myself, “What am I suppose to do now? There is nobody to fight. I am injured and if I seek help I will probably be captured by the government for scientific studies, or I’ll be locked away forever for the safety of everyone else. Before I turn myself in, I have to make sure everything is right in my past life.” I headed back home, my real home. I withdrew all of the money I had saved up in my back accounts. When I got to my parents house I peaked in the window, they were just like they always were. They looked happy. I left them enough money so that maybe they could retire and live the way they really wanted. I stopped by all of my closest friends houses from throughout my life and left them all a good chunk of money too, and notes letting them know I’m alright. Then I put a good portion to a few charities that I though looked good. And lastly, I went to my ex’s house. I still cared for her family a lot and wanted to make sure that they were alright too. I left them enough to retire and live happy and comfortably. But I had to do something else before I left for good. It was night time, everyone was asleep. I snuck into my ex’s room and woke her up. She didn’t recognize me especially with the costume and started to scream. I covered her mouth and picked her up and flew out of her window. We landed on a beach. I revealed my face to her and she hugged me and started crying. “I thought you were dead! What happened?” I told her everything, my new life, my secrets, my feeling for her, she knew it all. She agreed that it would be for the best to turn myself in. I would get healed, maybe cured, and I wouldn’t be a threat to everyone. She also said about my feelings that we weren’t meant to be, she still has to find herself and only she can do that on her own. I understood and I knew, but I still had to share those feelings with her. I said to her “My feelings for you will always be with me. Even when I do find someone else to make me happy, I’ll never lose that feeling of loving you. But I understand what you have to do. All I can do now is wish you well on this journey to find yourself, I wish I could help, but I can’t help you find yourself.” I started to feel sadness again, knowing she won’t be there for me anymore and that she’s not mine. I can’t have her, never again. My body started to get that evil aura again. The black foam started spreading all over my body. I started walking away from her and headed into the lake. I looked back at her one last time. The moonlight was shining down on her. She looked so beautiful and perfect. Then the foam covered my face, and I started sinking, fast. It felt like I was spinning into the ocean, I realized I couldn’t breathe. I was choking grasping for air, until I heard that song again. It was my favorite song, the one that we use to called “our song”. Then that song turned into an annoying beeping sound. I woke up, turned off the alarm clock, and sat up for a few minutes thinking to myself. “Wow. All of that… none of it was real was it?”
