Ocean Eyes- Prologue

It was about 3 months ago when me and my mother's house was destroyed by a massive fire. I swore to myself that I would never let it happen again. It was my fault. I was the one who left the stupid candle on last night in the living room. My mother is too forgiving. She says it's not my fault, that mistakes happen. She told me that no matter what I did, fire or murder, she would forgive me. My mother is the only parent I have, since my father died in a car crash. He loved me too, and was also forgiving of me. Everyone is too nice to me. I feel like I should be blamed for something. But not too harsh like murder.

This fire changed my life for the better and worse. Me and my mother had no home. We had money, but my mother loved that home. We stayed there for 5 years and was possibly going to be more. I swore to myself that I would not be reckless like I was when me and my mom went to our new home. I told myself that I would protect my town from disasters like this.

But how could a 15 year old girl protect a big town from disasters like this?

I believe in hope. That is a light that shall never fade from me. If

little kids could donate to major disasters in different parts of the world, then surely I can do the same. We all have talents that are waiting to shine out of the darkness.

I truly understood my own words the day I went into the woods of an abandoned park just near my new home.

My name is Hotaru. And this is how I saved my town from the greatest form of fire. A firestorm.

By wielding the powerful element known as water.

Author's Notes:

Wow I thought I would never start this. So what do you think?

I think it's a little cheesy because of the fire and all, but I promise it will get good. This is only the beginning after all. There is still more to come. Anyone have any ideas on how I can make it better?
