I can't help but feel that it's always my fault


Everything always is.

My parent's death was. I left my brother, Emmet and I alone


And to say the least he hated me and who I was


I was a Castor, someone who had powers. I happened to be the only one like this in my family.


Actually, the only one in London.

All the rest have been banished by the Grand Castor


Since I couldn't leave Emmet alone, I stayed hidden away from society


I already knew that if I showed who I really was, scientist would find me.

Or worse, I would be banished to a different planet

That would not be good, at all


I heard, from rumors that all the other planets were terribly uncomfortable


Earth was a lovely place to live. Giving me a reason to stay hidden


Anyways, I continuously remember my parent's death


They had just come home from dinner to find the house on fire.


I had gone into one of my phases where I couldn't control my own body until something terrible happened. Which happened to be my parent's death


Well, even in my phase, I saved Emmet and got him outside


My parents weren't so lucky, they came inside to get me out but I threw them both into the source of the fire, killing them


When I snapped out of the phase, I blacked out and fell down the stairs


I woke up in a hospital, having only Emmet around me


I had begged for forgiveness, not getting it

At the time, I felt sorry for myself, having nobody, but now I feel sorry for Emmet, for having me as a sister


Everything I do back fires on us, so now I do nothing other than keep us living


Which, with my powers, we have no problem
