This will probably sound ridiculous, but a few years ago, me and my friend were messing around and saying spells and making potions to become a mermaid. We both thought that they weren't going to work, but they did.
Instead of becoming mermaids, we harnessed power over elements of nature. She can control clouds, the heat, and water. I can control wind, water, cold, and the weather responds to my emotions. I describe the wind: I am invisible to most people. I will always be there for people that need me. I help people, though I can be dangerous. I am in the past, present, and future.
I can order the weather, and see the future in my dreams. It used to be days away, then weeks, weeks transformed into months, and they evolved to years.
I can tell who else is like me, who have harnessed these powers. I am also a skilled alchemist, I can remember recipes somehow, like it's from a past life. I can see things other normal people can't, and take notice of details other people wouldn't. I have guardians, in the form of pets, teachers, friends, and I seem to know how things turn out. I can mold events into the Earth's timeline, and I need to know why. I do have certain bad luck, it seems to find me naturally. If you are like me, I will know. We need to defy against them, the people who make us bear our misfortunes. They call us elementals, people who can control the elements. There is a whole other world out there, only for us too see. It's in your dreams, your hopes, your fantasies and imagination.
I can control the wind and temperature with my hands and thoughts. With each breath I blow out, a gust of wind follows in the direction I order it. If I wish for a certain weather on a certain day, it will happen. As I close my eyes, I see my subjects, sprites of the air, Aierites.
If you are like this, I can trust you you will not share this with anyone you value. I am one of the most skilled elemental, and you don't know what I am capable of. But we are all family, so I will trust you not to tell anyone. Ever. This seems like a story made up by someone wanting to feel different, but if you are one of us, you will know.
After I said the spells and drank the potions, two months later I knew a sort of hieroglyphics and I knew foreign chants to increase my power. I seemed like I was being sent all sorts of information, about history, and events in the future and thoughts of other people. I have yet to discover more about who I am.
