Who: Emily then Charles What: Emily's powers go nuts and almost hurricane!! When: backdated, Monday, August 22, late morning Where: Emily's room then outside in the park Rating: Low/Medium
Emily had had a fairly relaxing weekend, having work off was always nice. Also wonders of wonders she had tried to make it rain last Friday because it honestly was way too hot and...nothing happened. Had it gone away because she had suppressed it so much. While it first was a little scary, she ended up feeling thrilled. While she had a firm control over her powers, she still had to be mindful about it. But now...it seemed like it was one more thing that she didn't have to worry about. She woke up that morning with a smile on her face as she looked at the sun outside her window then down to Irulan who was curled up at her side.
She gave a little giggle and was about to wake Irulan up gently when something rushed through her. And it wasn't a good kind of rush. She shot to a sitting position in her bed causing Irulan to spring to attention. Emily's whole body trembled as another rush ran through her. She couldn't explain it, it wasn't like a rush of emotions or anything it felt like a rush of...power. Her eyes widened in terror, it couldn't be, no...it couldn't be back. She turned to glance out the window and let out a little cry of surprise as a much more powerful rush ran through her. She opened her eyes and saw some clouds forming. Her powers were back, not only were they back, they were back with a vengeance. Emily knew how to control her powers when they were somewhat muted and only had to focus when it was a little stronger. But this...this was like nothing she had ever felt before. A horrifying thought occurred to her...if she cause a hurricane with her normal powers, what kind of horror would this cause. A level two nearly tore the island apart, the way she was feeling now could cause something much worse. She couldn't...no...she wouldn't let that happen again. She pulled a pair of jeans, a tank top and a hoodie on. She posted a message on the message boards to everyone, warning them to stay inside and she reassured those who knew about her power to not worry, that she was going to fix this.
From her experience with her power she felt she had to get into the middle of it to focus enough to stop it. She raced out of her house and the rain had already started to fall, getting heavier by the minute. The wind started picking up as well as she approached a clearing in the park. Emily looked up to the swirling clouds and saw a flash of lightning closely followed by a crack of thunder. While being outside in a thunderstorm wasn't a good idea, Emily knew that, like the last hurricane, she wouldn't get hurt. Some how subconsciously her powers worked to keep her safe. She was already drenched from the rain and shook slightly from the cold. No, discomfort aside she had to do this. She swore she would never let her power hurt anyone ever again. She shut her eyes and focused repeating a mantra in her head, 'I control the power it does not control me.'
She imagined the rushing she felt through her slowly traveling out of her down her arms and she almost felt it draining out of her. However, her body kept pulsing that searing power through her. 'I control this, I am the one in control, you don't control me, I have this amazingly strong power, so that means I'm stronger, I won't let it hurt anyone ever again.' She steeled her resolve even harder and tried to focus on the storm now. Emily felt a particularly strong pulse and she felt a warmth spread through her. Anyone who saw her would see that her eyes were now white and her hair was flying around her in the wind.
The feeling was completely new, she felt everything, she had almost become one with the storm. She sensed every rain drop, every gust of wind, ever strike of lightning, every roar of thunder. She smelt the wet grass and her body felt overly sensitized. Emily was totally blank as she almost felt the clouds move with her every breath. In a low voice she then said aloud, "I made you, you are my creation. I am the one you obey and I am telling you to stop...you are done. I control you, you will no longer control me." The thunder quieted and the rain became lighter until is stopped. The wind turned back into a warm summer breeze as the clouds dissipated. Emily felt herself separate form the storm and return to her body. She blinked her eyes returning to green. The power left her in one big rush feeling her drained. She smiled as the sun came out and she sunk to her knees then fell to her side completely spent.
