I'm always in the wrong place at the wrong time. That's just how life is for me. I try to keep a low profile, which means I have no friends and everybody thinks I'm a freak. I like it that way because there's nobody to get attached to. I'm just going to leave anyway.

It's illegal to be like me. They put us in institutions and make us think that we're crazy while the real crazy people run free. If you're not a supernatural, then you're fine. Just fine.

I remember my parents, they were so good to me. I was born in the year 2055 before the Supernatural Act of 2060, so for a while we were allowed to live our lives however we pleased. Just like everybody else. But the day I turned five was the day everything changed for me.

The house was in flames. Smoke poured down my throat, choking me to the point that I thought I was going to pass out. I began to whimper.

I got up the courage to try and open my window. I reached out with my chubby little arms but it was no use. I was too short to reach the window and I didn't know any levitating spells. I stamped my little foot in despair.

By the time the firemen came, I knew in my heart that Mummy and Dad were dead. I heard the thoughts of the fireman who carried me to safety; The Supernatural Act was passed today. They must be supernaturals, the poor kid's so young. I can't tell anybody. The little one'll be safe with me.

He sat me down on a stretcher and said, "How would you like to go home with me. I can keep you safe." I nodded, trusting this man I knew to have a daughter of his own about my age. I thought I was going to be safe.

Two years later I was taken away because he was fostering four illegal supernatural children. I wasn't under suspicion, so I was simply taken away to another family.

Years and years went by and I was handed to so many different families who never really loved me. After a while, I just became a bother to the government and they sent me to a boarding school. This is where I've been for the past four years of my life.
