Chapter 1: What a Way to Wake Up
All my life I have always felt I was different. Not because I had lost my parents or the fact that I was a mutant and I didn't look the same as everyone else. But because I had 'powers' before I was ten. I could go for two weeks without sleep and then only need a good nights sleep to be fully charged. I could withstand freezing temperatures for long periods of time with only a thin jacket without a problem. And I could walk anywhere and, if I choose not to, leave a footprint or make any sound. I could also walk on snow(much to my delight) and things that wouldn't hold a normal person's weight.
Perfect abilities to help play pranks on my half-brother. So at the age of twelve I got my active powers: kinetic charging. Basically I can fill any non living object with kinetic energy and this object will explode a few seconds after being let go. Or if I don't want it to I can drain the object and the object perfectly fine.
If you still don't get it well then here is another example: picture a hand grenade. Well once you pull that pin and let go you've got a few seconds before it blows. But if you hold on to it and don't let the handle fly up you can put the pin back in and defuse it. This is basically what my power is like.
Well when I turned 30 my active power evolved a little, I could still charge things, but I could now punch a hole in the Universe/time line and travel anywhere. I discovered this once and travelled to a world not even in the same galaxy as Earth. I landed right in the middle of a ceremony of some kind and spent an entire year being revered as a Goddess.
It wasn't so BAD until I was supposed to marry some prince and bear him a son. Well, let's just say. I somehow activated my power in the middle of the wedding. And well . . . I came home in a very pretty but very skimpy wedding dress and ring, but minus one leather trench coat.
So I guess I wasn't too surprised when I went on vacation in Australia with friends that, I ended up in the past . . .
I groaned as I swam out the darkness I had been knocked into. "Oh, God . . . "I muttered as I pushed myself into a sitting position. The world was slightly blurred as I opened my eyes and looked about. My pack was lying beside me, I struggled to my feet and took good a look at my surroundings. I was in a forest, nothing new to me I had been in one before I had been knocked unconscious.
Suddenly something 'felt' wrong this made me nervous. I groped for a deck of cards from my pocket and readied myself for a fight, all the time hoping it was just a deer or something but all the time knowing it's not. The rustling of leaves made my skin prickle, suddenly. I heard the sound of footsteps. As I listened, the footsteps came closer and multiplied. Great with my luck I found a whole pack of something that wants to kill meI thought bitterly as I grabbed my pack and ran.
I ran blindly through the woods, my pursuers screeched and hissed behind and beside me. I veered to right as something wheezed past my head, a crudely fletched arrow imbedded itself in a tree where my head had just been. I glanced behind me, I stumbled slightly in shock as I saw what was chasing me.
Their eyes were full of hate and blood thirst from their repulsive faces. Blood and spit dribbled down its face. Several of them had cross-bows and swords. There were six of the repulsive creatures.
I charged a card and threw it at the closest one. The card hit it square in the chest, sending it flying back, then back to running again. The sound of rushing water filled my ears. I ran straight toward the sound.
I yelped in surprise as my foot caught a branch and I slammed into the ground. Then rolled uncontrollably down a slope and off a rocky cliff, and into the water. The water was icy cold as I was pulled down and a searing pain shot through my arm as I hit it against a rock. I got swept further down the river and was pulled under, frightened, I opened my eyes. I was ten feet down, panicking, I tied to swim up but pain skittered up my arm. Oh no! It felt like my lungs would burst as I tried to kick against something to help me surface. After what felt like hours, I surfaced. Gasping, I screamed "Help! Someone, help!"
I managed to stay a float until I was washed ashore. With a weary look about I was swept up by darkness.

Legolas Greenleaf hummed softly to himself as he walked down to the river. He needed time to think, the council was in a month and he was bored. Estel wasn't here and his father bothering him about getting a wife(again).
He walked along the bank, skipping stone across the water.Maybe if I convince Father I've found someone then maybe he'll leave me alone for a couple centuries, he thought dryly as rounded the bend in the river. He came to a halt when he realized how far he was down the river.
"I really shouldn't go for a walk when I'm trying to decide something, "he muttered I always end up four leagues from where I'm staying, he thought dryly as he sat on a boulder. Sighing, he looked about. An odd shape log caught his eye. Curious, he went to see what it was.

I gasped in pain as I regained consciousness. My arm throbbed in pain as I rolled onto my back and stared up at the bluer then blue sky.
The faint sound of footsteps made me tense,Oh shit!. Suddenly a shadow fell over me, with a sweep of my foot I kicked the shadow's feet out from under it. I didn't let it recover, grabbed the knife from their belt and held it to their throat."Move and I'll slit your throat!"I growled as my ruby coloured eyes glared into their's.
I was surprised to find crystal blue ones staring back. My eyes quickly took in his face. The man appeared human but something about him made him feel different.
"Who are you?"I asked hoarsely.
"An elf from Mirkwood," he stated icily.
I frowned,"'An elf'?"
I tensed, and backed away backed away quickly, getting to my feet. As I did, I tossed the knife to the side and side, "I'm sorry for my reaction." Then holding my arm close to my chest I turned and walked (well limped would be the better word)away. I came to stop when he spoke.
"I you're looking for help, Rivendell is that way," he said pointing in the opposite way. I turned to face him.
"What makes you think I need help?" I said with an arched brow.
"Well, you're soaking wet and I found you unconscious," he pointed out as he got to his feet and picked up his knife and sheathed it.
"Well, I'm awake now," I stated and slowly walked back toward him. "Where the hell am I?" I muttered to myself looking about for a recognizable landmark, but there were none to be seen.
"Four leagues from Rivendell," he answered smiling, I glanced at him and gave him a look.
"That helps," I said sarcastically as I sat down a boulder gingerly. Sighing, I pushed my fire coloured hair out of my face.
"You are a stranger to this land, then?" he inquired as he came closer to me.
"Yeah," I remarked absently.
"I'm Legolas," he stated with a smile. I gave him a look.
"Your name is Legolas?"I said with amusement as I tried not to laugh out loud. "That is an unusual name," I remarked with a stifled laugh. He stared at me, his eyes flashed as anger simmered just below the surface.
"I'm sorry its just I'm going through a lot at the moment," I said wearily as I let my head fall into my hand. I stayed like that for a while before really looking at my surroundings.
Nothing looked familiar to me the trees were bigger then anything I've seen, and the river was crystal clear and cleaner then purified bottled water. And to top it off I didn't know where the hell I was. Suddenly things got a little fuzzy and I became REALLY dizzy. I felt myself falling off the boulder I was perched on. Legolas must be really quick because I was suddenly in his arms being carried somewhere, I looked up at him in confusion.
"I'm taking you to Rivendell," he said quietly. He must've been stronger then he looked because he easily carried me up the river then up a steep and rocky path.
"You really don't have to carry me," I argued but I voice was tired even to my ears.
"Do you always argue with people who try to help you?"he asked with a frown.
"Yes," I growled stubbornly and tried to get out of his arms. I yelped as I move my arm the wrong way and pain shot through it.
"Are you all right?" he asked worried as he set me on the ground. My eyes squeezed shut in an attempt to ward off the throbbing pain.
"I'm fine," I ground out but he didn't listen as he swiftly pulled off my trench coat and a saw my arm. It was sickly angled in the wrong direction. I looked at it for second then closed my eyes in an effort to prevent myself from being physically ill.
"Your fine? Then tell me why you wince so when I touch your arm, mellon nin," he asked in annoyance as took off his cloak and cut it into strips then found some straight foot long sticks.
"It's just bruised," I replied around a wince. Legolas gave me a look then continued to set my arm. With a swift pull he set my arm, I almost screamed in pain as he straightened it but I managed to stifle it to a yelp. His hands were gentle as he splinted my arm and wrapped it with strips of his cloak.
"You would risk your health for your pride?"he asked with a frown, as he tied the cloth together. I glared at him.
"Yes," I said stubbornly. Legolas gave me a look. "Forgive me, if I'm not the type of girl that always needs a big strong guy to look out for her," I said sarcastically. He frowned at me.
"This will have to do until we get to Rivendell," he muttered as he picked me up again and began to walk again. I felt too dazed and too tried to try arguing with him about him letting me walk. I felt myself drifting off. Those two weeks of no sleep were catching up with me. How I'm I going to explain this to Remy when I get back? was the last thought that ran through my head before slipping into the peaceful arms of sleep.
