I jogged to the village, frowning at the sunny, blue sky with not a cloud in sight. Suddenly, it clouded over. My gift was handy in some ways, at least, even if it did confuse the weathermen. Strolling down Main Street at a nice, human pace, I absorbed the smells of the people around me. Suddenly, a scent more potent than what I had ever tasted hit me like a ton of bricks. Cliche, I know.
I gasped and sat down--hard--startling the people around me. "Are you ok?" they asked. "Hello! Are you okay?" I shook my head as the scent came closer. I had to get it away... But the fire... Couldn't I just kill it? It'd work. I'd have to snap the necks of those around me, though. And then everyone on Main Street...
No. I wouldn't expose Lexicalia. I braced myself, then gasped, "Fine. Need. Minute." I remembered to add "Please." The scents moved away, allowing for me to think more clearly. But the scent, stayed.
"Are you sure you're okay?" A voice asked. I glanced up, trying to hold my breath. I couldn't kill them all...
What I saw shocked me. It was... a girl? A teenage girl, around fifteen, maybe. Her light brown hair was braided loosely and there was a pen behind her ear. I could see a book pocking out of her abnormally large bag. She had owl earrings peaking out from behind the hair still over her ears.
I gaped a moment more. My blood singer, my tua cantante, was a... girl?
