I sat on the beach, watching the clouds roll in. There was a storm coming alright. I was stranded out here. I sat near the cliff face, curling in a ball to stay warm. Then thunder boomed and the rain started. Lightning flashed over the ocean and thunder crshed over head. The rain turned into a downpour, soaking me to the bone. I didn’t think it could get anyworse; but of coarse, it did. Lightning stuck closer and closer until it hit a nearby tree. I ran over and used my katana to cut down the पेड़ so I could stomp out the fire. Lightning struck again, missing me द्वारा a couple centimeters. I felt the heat off it and flinched. It was like nothing else I had ever felt before. I heard someone calling my name.
“NIGHT?!WHERE ARE YOU?!” I heard. I ran towards the voice. It was the boy who I kicked in the face.
“What do आप want?” I screamed over the rain.
“Get inside” he yelled back. The hairs on the back of my neck rose. I ran at the boy, tackleing him to the ground right before lightning hit.
“Thanks” he gasped
“I figured I owed आप one for kicking आप in the face” I replied “Yeah sorry about that. Now get inside before आप get fried”
“What about you?” he asked
“I’ve survived worse” I कहा “Now go”
I pushed him along to the door then shoved him inside. Lightning struck about two feet away. Again, only a foot away this time. I raised two fingers up to the sky, knowing I was the अगला target. The lightning rippled through my arm as I pointed it to the left, directing it towards the water. I took a deep, pianful, breath. Not a good idea to redirect lightning with a headache. I ran towards the cliff again and sat there, cuddled in a ball. It was around midnight when the storm passed द्वारा and I finally had the chance to get some rest. I never did. I spent the whole night, sitting against the cliff face, awake. When the sun started rising, I climbed back up the cliff and sat on a ledge to watch the sun rise. I sighed. I would have to get moving today. Not yet though. For now, I would sit and watch the sunrise. Something about today’s sunrise was different. It was brighter, और promising, like today would be a good day. I climbed back down the cliff face and did something that most people would call stupid. I knocked on the door. The girl with the cold eyes answered.
“Listen, I know we got off to a rough start, but I would be very grateful if we could start with a clean slate.” I pleaded. She looked at me with cold eyes then smiled. I smiled back.
“A सेकंड chance” she कहा “That sounds reasonable”. We walked in and she took me to a room where I could get washed up and change. After a quick shower, I put on some clothes that the girl gave me.
“What’s your name, anyways?” I asked
“My name is Artemis” she replied kindly
