Most of my family gets their ability by the time they are 15, but before me their has been one case with my great grandmother, she never got her power. I think that might happen to me because it is only a week until my fifteenth birthday. Nobody has ever gotten their ability after fifteen, but my mom is still hopeful saying that I will get it tomorrow. I don't believe her, but she says a field mouse told her I would. Only my mom could trust a field mouse.
I really don't care whether or not I get my ability, I would like one , but if I don't get one I won't mind. I don't want my mom to get upset, so I really hope I get one just for her.
Every morning since my thirteenth birthday my mom asks me if I feel any different, I never do but I try something outrageous everyday just to show her that I want one. The abilities have to do with the personality of the person and what their hobbies are. I'm quiet and shy, and I love to read so I hope at if I get an ability it will be something like the power to get my sister to be quiet and sit down for once.
The morning of my birthday I actually feel a little wierd but just dizzy not anything major. I try a little jump, nope, I definitely cannot fly, I see a bird outside my window, I try to talk it, nope, no animal speech. Suddenly I feel the urge to close my eyes, I feel a small gust of wind and I open my eyes and see my shadow right in front of me but it isn't even touching the wall.
I rush down stairs to tell Mom and realize that my hamster's chubby shadow is following behind me, but I don't see my hamster.
My mom is at the kitchen table crying saying, "She didn't even get her power"
I can't believe what she is saying, I'm right here Mom I reply, but she doesn't seem to hear or see me. I look down at my hands and realize that I am a shadow, my body is a translucent black, "I must be able to transform into shadows," I think to myself. I run back upstairs to my room but instead of trying to transform I see my body lying on my bed I can tell that I'm not breathing,"I'm dead," I yell knowing no one else can hear me.
