Meeting Taemin by chance, a boy with similar powers changes her life for the better, however unknown forces are trying to destroy her happiness and force the loneliness back into her heart. The only thing that will appease them is the rare Fire Orchid, which grows inside the active Mt. Etna. Will Emmalie succes in her task? And what will she learn about Taemin, the boy she grew to love and trust, along the way?


1. Prologue

My name is Emmalie, I live in London. Not the London you know though. My London has... Powers, I think that's why you'd call it. Most of the people here can take control of one element: Air, Water, Fire and Earth, and make it do their bidding. Every century or so, a child of each gender is born who can control all four elements. They are never born in the same country. They can never meet, because it is prophesied if they will destroy each other, and then who would keep the world at peace, or as much peace as possible anyway. They are kept apart for the good of the world. But it's a cruel and twisted fate because they are lonely never to talk to anyone with the same responsibility as them self. How do I know this? Because I am the girl.

My 'counterpart' I guess you could call him, was supposedly born in South Korea. I don't know if this is true or not, it certainly wouldn't be the first time someone of my power was lied to. The only thing I know about him for sure is that his favoured element is fire, and I only know that because mine is water. I've always imagined him as quite destructive, as fire burns and scars things, whilst water grows and heals things. I imagine I come across like water does, calm, kind and sweet, although I do have a quick temper, like fire. So I guess he might have a sweet side as well. I wish I could meet him, maybe one day I will. Maybe we could save each other instead of destroying one another, get rid of the loneliness aching in our hearts. But everyone knows that's just wishful thinking...
