When I woke up, Noah was in the shower singing. I got up and flipped my self out of the covers and sighed.
"What's wrong baby girl?" Noah said with his towel wrapped his lower body.
"Nothing, just last night was amazing." I laughed.
"Nahh, you were better than me by a lot." He smiled.
"Yeah right." I laughed getting up.
"It's true!" He said sliding into his boxers.
"Ok, whatever." I laughed sliding into my clothes as well.
There was an awkward silence then I zipped up my zipper, but it didn't go up all the way. I pulled it down, then up.
"Ready to go?" He asked hugging me from behind.
"Yes, yes I am." I smiled.
He grabbed my hand and walked me into the elevator.
When the doors rolled open Mrs. Jane smiled.
"Ok, now as you know Banes have powers!" She squealed. " So just like last year, Noah and Kayla. You will be practicing it by finding it through these!" She pointed to little stations.
"What are they?" Asked Ash.
"Well, they are supposed to determine what power you have weather it's Heat, ice, fire, wind, fog, or healing." She said." Now go!" She yelled.
Noah walked to healing and I walked to ice.
"Next." I heard and as I looked up at a tall man guided me to the little stage.
"If your ice, then while forcing pressure throughout your arms and legs, you will feel an icy feeling and then the power will shoot right out of your hand into the water puddle, the water puddle will freeze, it takes 20 seconds top. Ready?"
"Yes." I said.
"Ok, I'll count down to go 19, 18, 17, 16, 15, 14" I tuned him out and forced pressure through me, but it wasn't an icy feel I was feeling, it was hot, so hot it burned.
"5, 4, 3, 2, 1," he stopped. "Well, your not ice, try something else." He said.
I walked to heat and stood there.
"Hey." Someone said behind me, I thought it was Noah, but when I turned around... It wasn't, it was Ryan.
"Hey Ryan." I asked.
"Yeah, why didn't you tell me you were marrying Noah?" He asked.
"because it was none of your business and we were headed that way anyways. Everyone knows us." I whispered.
"So then tell me!" He yelled at me. A couple of people looked over.
"It's none of your business why, why? Because I love him! That is why!" I said.
"Well, what about me?" He asked. "You would've burned alive, if it weren't for me!" He yelled again.
"She'd be just fine..." Noah said walking up to me and wrapping an arm around me.
"Well, I wasn't healing." He smiled and kissed my temple.
"Yeah? Well I'm fire!" Ryan said pushing Noah to the ground and burning him in the leg, with the reddish orangish smoke that came out of his hand.
"No!" I screamed pushing Ryan out of the way.
Noah's leg was black, extremely all black in a circle mark, now everyone was looking.
"Noah" I said sitting next to him and patting out the fire on his leg as he grimaced every time I slapped his leg.
"Are you ok?" I asked hugging him.
"No..." He said whimpering, "It burns like hell!" He said.
Ryan got up and came running towards me. Two men picked him up and walked him out while he was screaming.
"Let me see..." I said rolling up his pant let and he grimaced even more.
I looked at it and almost died, his bone was showing! Ryan had not known how to use his power correctly and actually burned a hole in his leg.
I looked at it, his bone disappeared... His skin was growing back! It filled up the hole with the missing blood and skin! Like time was slowly in reverse.
"Kayla..." He said looking at his leg.
The hole was covered with a black tarnished skin that soon flaked into ash and flew away with the air conditioning. We all looked at his leg. Then he looked at me.
"No scar? No blood?" Mrs. Jane said. "This can only mean one thing..." She smiled, clinging her clipboard to her chest. "Kayla you're a god of healing." She said looking at me.
I got up.
"I'm not just plain healing like everyone else?" I asked.
"Healers can fix broken bones and cuts, but never replace burn scars and deep wounds." She explained.
"Here." A man in a purple sweater directed me to the healing station.
He look the dagger and slit his wrist.
"Are you fucking crazy?" I yelled
"You can heal death, try it." He said I grabbed his arm near his wrist and I saw a blue glowing light fly up his vein to the cut that was now glowing red and it sealed up. "No scar, no blood." He said. "You are a god of healing."
"This doesn't make since..." I said sitting on the bed for free time.
"Of course it does, your mom is a fire born, and your dad a ice born." He said opening one of my books.
"What was your power?" I asked.
"Fog." He smiled. "just needed a little bit more of a push to get it out."
"Good..." I said before the elevator doors rolled open.
"Hey guys." Mrs. Jane said with Boda following behind her.
"Hey." Noah said solemnly.
"Here are your suits for the games, and tomorrow morning we will have P.P.P" Boda said.
"What's that?" I asked.
"Public power practice." Mrs. Jane said.
"Interviews to show off your cool new powers!" Boda said enthusiastically, but sarcastically.
"Well, see you at dinner." They said walking into the elevator. I looked at the wet suit with the snow jacket on top.
"Purple... Just great!" I said annoyed of the color.
"Haha." Noah laughed.
"Your really reading that?" I asked.
"Yes." He said.
"How do I know?" I asked.
"Here I'll read you a part." He said searching the page. " O Romeo, Romeo! Wherefore art thou Romeo? Deny thy father and refuse thy name, or, if thou wilt not, be but sworn my love, and I'll no longer be a Capulet." He read.
"That's my favorite line..." I smiled, getting chills up and down my arms.
"Told you I know you better than you do." He laughed.
"Ya, that's because your my fiancé." I laughed.
"I like that word!" He blushed setting down the book.
"What are you doing?" I said.
"Nothing." He said.
"Your such a weirdo." I laughed as he sat on top of me.
"Yes, but sadly you love it." He laughed. "And I love you more than anything in the world, you are my world." He said kissing me.
"And I love you too, you're my world." I said kissing him back.
