Frozen- Enoch O'Connor
Peculiar. What a funny word. There was something peculiar, about the word peculiar. There were also many other peculiar things in the world. Like Hattie Flanagan, she was certainly peculiar. Many thought of her to be strange, but Alma Lefay Peregrine was different from the rest of them. She too was peculiar, and ever since Hattie was born, she harboured protective instincts for the young girl.
Hattie wasn't normal, like I said, she was peculiar. She didn't have an abnormal hair colour, or a different accent which made her different. Instead, she could summon ice using her bare hands. She was colder than the Northern Winds, and anything she touched would soon be encased in a thick layer of frost.
As the girl grew older, her peculiarity grew with her. She could soon manipulate water, which enabled her to do more and more. If she were to cover someone in water, she could then freeze them when they stood. And it didn't just have to be someone. She had managed to do it with an entire building once, and with a flick of a wrist it was throw right into the River Thames. But the worst part of her gift, was the inability to touch anyone. She could never hold hands with her parents, for as soon as their skins touched, their blood would turn cold and they would slowly freeze until help was given from the local doctor.
Alma Lefay Peregrine knew of the girl's gift. So, she wrote to the girl's parents immediately and asked to take care of their daughter. She convinced them that she could help to nurture her talents so she would no longer be able to hurt those she cared about. Her parents agreed enthusiastically, and so they sent their daughter away to Miss Peregine's home in Cairnholm Wales, when she had just turned six years of age.
