|I almost screamed. It happened again. When my body literally felt like it was on fire. I slowed my pace. I looked to my right. My mother's boss was having a garage sale. Little did I know, this was the day my whole life would change. The day I turned....well, super.
"Hi Mrs. Jameson!" I called. She turned and smiled at me. "Hello Lily," She said in a soft, kind voice only she could do. "How your mother doing?" For the past week my mom had been in the hospital, shivering, not eating or drinking. No one's sure what happened. No ones sure what she has. And no ones sure if she'll live. "Uh, she's fine." I lie because I'm sure I'll burst into tears if I say anything else. I pick up a vase with fancy golden trim and four lady's surrounding the top, their arms outstretched. Wearing gold dresses. It looks like the type of thing my mom would like. The price tag says five dollars,so I hand it to Mrs. Jameson. I reach in my pocket to see how much money I have. Six dollars and two cents. After I buy it, I run home to wrap it. But once I turn it upside down I'm surprised to see a thin gray powder and a clean piece of paper fall out. I carefully run my hand in the powder. "What is it?" I wonder out loud. Then it hits me. Ashes. I pick up the note. It reads:
These are the remains of: The Last Romanov, The First Child, Ms. Alston, and Lily Frent
I drop the note and run out of the house, probably screaming my fool head off but at this point I can't hear a thing. My name is Lily Frent. And apparently, I'm dead. Or at least, I'm supposed to be.
Now, I don't have much time right now, so I'll explain things a little faster. I (literally) run into a man who trys to explain this to me. I'm a superhuman. I have control over fire. My mom will live. When I die, I'm reborn. So, basically, I used to be Virginia Dare A.K.A The First Child. Virginia....I mean, I was the first child born in the America's to English parents. But I don't remember a thing. There are others, too. A boy who we all call Viper. He has the ability of speed. Like, he's as fast as light. There's a girl we call Poison Ivy. She has the ability to make people start itching. At first, we laughed. Then, she touched Viper. His skin paled and little red bumps started popping up. That's when he screamed. Poison Ivy touched him again and it all stopped. His face was red but I'm guessing he was just embarrassed. Then there's Dreamer. Her brain is amazing. She can think 70 percent faster than the smartest man in the world. There's Force who has super strength. He doesn't really look strong but he can throw a car several miles. Fairy Dust can walk on air. Trix can use any weapon and knock out her opponent in three minutes. Storm can make lightning and throw it at his enemy. Then there's me. Fire. We are eight superhumans and pretty soon, we'll have to save the world.
