Oliver took a deep breath, wiping away sweat from his forehead. He’d been out here for hours, punching a tree to hone his gift. The only reason his hands were decimated was the fact that he was using well-timed micro-explosions. They weren’t enough to destroy the tree, but he was making a sizeable mark in the wood. It was blackened around where his fists impacted. After he took a break, he reared back his right fist, and brought it to the tree, setting off an actual explosion. It tore clean through the tree and then some, singeing the surrounding trees behind it. Oliver sidestepped as the tree fell and he smiled, satisfied. His stamina in using his gift was slowly getting better, but he was still feeling exhausted. He sat on the recently felled log and took a drink from the water bottle he had brought with him. Today was a good day.

Sun shining. Birds chirping. Trees exploding? Light slanted through gaps in the leaves, making sunspots dance and ripple across the forest floor with every breath of wind that rustled the branches. She wasn't an outdoorsman, not a camper or a backpacker or a hiker or any '-er' hobby for that matter. Some people had physical gifts, others didn't. Cailin got winded going up and down the stairs. But she couldn't resist the lure of the woods, the cologne-like musk of damp and rotting leaves, the bracing air. Mom and dad met in the Autumn dorms, and now she was an Autumn too. This year, now that she was on her own, she felt like she was on the cusp of something... crazy, auspicious, amazing, and more and more she let herself be ensnared by these fey moods, wandering new places with her head in the clouds. Hey, a walk in the forest sounds nice. It doesn't even matter that everything's going to be muddy and full of bugs. Something might happen.

The best way to describe it was waiting for the gunshot, like at the opening ceremony. She still hadn't shaken the blood-rush from holding the bullet in her fingers, and she wanted that fairy tale catalyst that would spiral her off into some grand adventure where everything would maybe just finally possibly straighten out. That was the number one pathway to a happy ending, by every metric and measurement she knew. that being mostly zelda games.

And there was the explosion, the groan and split of wood, a great snap that rustled all the birds from their roosts. She didn't play the moment off half as well as she bragged to herself she would. A yelp leaped out from her throat, and her hands went flinging over her head, ducking a splinter the size of a two-by-four

At the exact moment Oliver sat down he had shot back up at the echo of a yelp. His explosion must've been more powerful than he thought. "Sorry!" he called out, unable to spot the source of the person's scream. He scanned the trees but they were too thick to see anything through."Are you okay?" he asked nervously, hopeful that was a yelp of surprise rather than a yelp of pain.

She popped up, electric currents shimmering and snapping an inch over her skin, lifting her hands from up over the nape of her neck. "What was that?" Cailin's eyes flicked up to the boy, first softened with concerned, but a moment later, narrowing ever so slightly. "Was it you?"
