Look, I didn't want to be a halfblood."


Screams erupted through the flames. I watched in horror as the burning hot consumed the people.


“Emine!” My sidekick, Zoot, cried. “We have to help them.”


I backed away as the flashbacks filled my head. 


It was when the Flameling visited my home and burned it to the ground, my family in it. They never came out. The scar stayed on my ankle from that night. I had always vowed I would take the Flameling down but now? I can’t do it. 


When I came back to reality, nothing but ashes remained. I’m no hero. I’m as good as the Flameling.


The author's comments:

I really love powerful girls with creative names and Emine stood out to me and I made this.
