When The elder saw me standing there, throwing fire she was very firm, “Childing, it isn’t nice to burn people. She touched my hand and chanting in a somber voice said, “Powers of elements, rise awake, understanding of this child to make. “Somnus victus, enchius deus. I felt scared as something began glowing from my whole form. She chanted, “Finitae deo! She waved her arms and the glowing vanished. She seemed to float above the grasses. She made a sign in the air and suddenly other beings like me, and not gathered on the grasses, some as tiny as a blade of grass, some as large as several of the strange tall things some rough and some smooth but all had large and Green stuff. There was a whirl of sound and all eyes looked tward the Elder.
The first thing I felt was a warm substance that cradled me. I felt and smelled as y senses awakened. I felt the pressure of the energies around me. I heard a voice. I drifted lazily in the ooze in timeless wonder. New feelings and new experiences filled my mind. When i was sleepy I just drifted. I knew no night or day, just the movement of the ooze. Then I felt a pressure lifting me in one direction up. I resisted feebly but the current took me up, up, up until I lay just beneath the surface of the ooze. I felt the heat of fire, smelled the rich damp earth, felt the air and knew instinctively I was drifting in water of a sort. I drifted just beneath the surface of the water for more time than I could measure in my primitive awakening. I was not afraid, I simply was. Then I felt a surge of pressure and I was gently lifted by the current until my body contacted some springy damp substance. I felt the heat of fire above me and I slept. I awoke to the sounds of other voices around me. Then I opened my eyes and saw the ball of fire in the sky and felt its heat. I saw but understood nothing. The voices sounded loud to my untrained and unfiltered senses and I didn’t realize, but my own voice keened and moaned. One of the voices shushed and comforted. I continued to keen, curling inward into a ball and wanted to go back into the ooze. I strained to move until the bottom of me was in it. I moved some more until I landed completely in it. then I tried to move, to settle deeper into the comforting ooze. Then I felt myself lifted. I balled aloud and cried, feeling my chances thwarted and I was indignant. I felt movement and then I was gently set down. The voice that had shushed me before crooned and sang softly. I calmed and became aware of the surroundings. Several strange creatures sat on this springy substance and the ball of fire was around us. In the distance there were tall thin creatures standing but not moving. The voice spoke to me and touched me and I knew that we sat on grass, the ball of fire was the sun, and the unmoving creatures were trees. I heard the muttering of voices and listened, “In the primordial pool for 12 days, no elemental has ever lived in the pool for that long, not elemental was born to us after 12 days in the pool. “She was pushed out, was the great spirit of the pool angry? “No that couldn’t be, the pool is the all, where we began, it is not angered, it simply is our womb. “What gifts can an elemental have who’s been in there 12 days though? And on and on, and on. I simply slept and awoke to the voices. When I next was aware I felt the fire was gone and my body was carried. Then a sharp voice called, “Here she is, greetings, Elder, Elder, look what came out of the pool! “Set her down you. Called the second voice, “You have all frightened the poor creature. I felt warmth and felt myself cradled lovingly and I cried, “There there, you poor thing, shush my lovely. Said the Elder. She then spoke harshly, “You have caused her spirit to be half in and half out, she cannot be aware of anything because you all decided to bring her here without her awakening to herself! “i would not be surprised if she faded this instant and her elemental essence polluted our world to bring evil and bad luck upon us all. “We usually let them learn for themselves and grow to know, but no, you all decided to halt her development so you could all tell me she’s different and has been in the pool for 12 days! The Elder rocked me and crooned and spoke more gently, “You’ve completely arrested her development, you froze her in a state of awakening, her spirit is not settled. “I must invoke the pool to take her back for awhile or ask it to help her become aware. I must have drifted for again I found myself in the pool and breathed a sigh of gratitude. I drifted there and felt complete there for some time and was once again gently laid on the grasses. The sun was high in the sky again and I lay there unmoving for a few moments.and finally moved. I stood up and felt the world shift to my new view. I took a few halting steps and fell to the grass again. I laughed at this new game and saw the others around me. I wanted no one to come near me. I felt something build and build, like a pressure inside. I released it and saw fire speeding toward the others. They backed away then and I laughed. I heard a voice beside me and I startled, sending more sparks out, “It is not nice to burn people, the grass beneath you doesn’t deserve it either young one. “Your magic is strong and good, but you are still learning sweet one. “Be still and know.
