Short Story: Return Storm

Genre: fantasy
Follows after Dormant Thunderstorm.

 

Today, she was interested in one thing and one thing only.

Getting her powers back.

When she was younger, she had the power to create thunderstorms. Unfortunately, it was too much for her to handle, and it was locked away for everyone’s safety.

Now she was moving out alone for college, and a little thunderstorm was a great way to deter anyone from trying anything funny with her.

They tried throwing her into danger, tasers, other supers, creepy crawlies. Nothing would pull her power out of dormancy.

“Arghh!”

“Calm down.” A hand landed on her head and ruffled her hair.

She snapped.

A tiny bolt of lightning zapped her brother’s hand.

“Ow! Hey. You got it!”

More electricity sizzled in the air.

“Don’t touch my hair again.”

“Ok. Ok. Just calm down.”

The air lightened. So did the tension that had gathered in her over the day. She smiled.

“I like this.”

“Of course you would,” her brother grumbled.
