The Last Ashmaker

1. Family Barbeque

Amy’s family arrives late at James’s house for a barbeque, where Audrey’s powers flare up.

The sun was setting as Amy’s family pulled up to James’s house for the much-anticipated barbeque. Laughter and the tantalizing aroma of grilled meats greeted them as they approached the backyard. James, apron-clad and manning the grill, waved them over with a smile.

Amy’s parents, siblings, and even the family dog, Copper, mingled with James’s friends, plates piled high with food. The atmosphere was warm and inviting, as everyone chatted and enjoyed the delicious spread.

However, as the evening progressed, Audrey, Amy’s younger sister, started to feel restless. Suddenly, a vase on the table shattered into pieces, shocking everyone into silence. Audrey’s eyes widened in surprise as she realized what had happened – her powers, which she had been struggling to control, had flared up uncontrollably.

James, ever the calm presence, reassured Audrey and guided her away from the group, giving her space to regain her composure. Amy and the rest of the family watched anxiously, grateful for James’s understanding and support.

As the night wore on, Audrey’s powers gradually subsided, and the barbeque resumed its joyful atmosphere. Despite the unexpected turn of events, the bond between the families only grew stronger, with a newfound appreciation for each other’s strengths and vulnerabilities.

2. The Truth Revealed

Amy gathers the children to explain the history of elemental powers and the persecution of ashmakers.

As Amy gathered the children around her, she began to unravel the hidden history of elemental powers. She spoke of a time long ago when individuals known as ashmakers wielded the elements with great skill and power. However, their abilities made them targets of persecution by those who feared their strength.

Amy described how ashmakers were hunted down, their powers suppressed and controlled by those in power. Many ashmakers were forced to go into hiding, living in fear of being discovered and punished for simply being who they were. The children listened intently, their eyes wide with curiosity and horror at the injustice of it all.

With each word, Amy painted a vivid picture of a world where magical abilities were seen as a threat rather than a gift. She emphasized the importance of understanding the past to shape the future, urging the children to embrace their own elemental powers and stand up against the forces of oppression.

As the truth was revealed, a sense of determination settled over the group. They were no longer just children with potential, but warriors in the making, ready to fight for their right to exist in a world that sought to silence them.
