 (Y/N) POV

As Alba passed away I felt tears forming in my eyes.  I desperately fought back until I couldn't take it any more and let out a scream of frustration. 


Every form of friendship and bond seems to crumble apart and leave me broken and alone.  I let out uncontrollable tears.  Tears that I couldn't shed right after the lose of everything.

"It's okay (Y/N)."

I lifted up my head to see a woman kneeling beside me.  She had black hair which was red near the end.  Her silver eyes were full of concern.  She wore a white cloak very similar to the one I was in and she was smiling down at me warmly.  

"W-Who are you?" I managed to get out in between my sobs.

"My name is Summer Rose.  The previous host of Nebula."

"P-previous h-host?"  I asked her I never thought there was a way to get rid of this being inside of me.

"Yes the previous host I... Well... I died recently and Nebula was transferred to you."

It took me a while to process what she said before my eyes widened and I jumped to my feet.


She frowned at my action and shook her head.

"This is why I said you were too young to be made the host of Nebula," she muttered to herself.

I looked at her confused and afraid and she let out a small sigh

"I am not here to hurt you.  I'm here to teach you how to manage and control your powers."

"What do you mean?"

"Your power as Nebulas host will only grow stronger and more deadly as you grow up.  As a safety protocol my spirit has been allowed to remain with you until you have mastery over Nebulas power."

"I shuddered at the thought of Nebulas power."

"What do you mean safety protocol?  Why is their a safety protocol?"

"The safety protocol was made so that if their ever came a time where the host of Nebula found him or her self with out a person to properly guide them.  Then Nebula will take the previous host to teach the new host about their new powers so that the power won't fall into the wrong hands."

"What am I supposed to do then?"

"For now you need to go back to your village to find an object.  The object is an necklaces with a charm the shape of a water drop."

I paled at the thought of going back home.

"N-no I can't go back.  I d-don't want to see it like that."

"(Y/N) you're going to have to go back. Unless you want to spend the rest of your life in constant pain and regret."

I stared at the ground unable to meet Summers gaze.  I took a deep breath and decided that I needed to go back.  

"Alright I'll go back to find this necklace."

Summer smiled at me and she dissolved into the wind leaving behind white flower petals.  This freaked me out a little until I heard Summers voice in my head.

Don't worry I'm connected to you.  I just don't think it would be good for people to see a dead person walking around.

I nodded in understanding and I started my hike back to my village.
