I awoke, my feet cold under the sheets. The room was strangely quiet as I slipped out of bed and looked out the window. I saw the world covered in a sea of white snow. I hurried to get dressed and started for the back door. "Today, I will walk through my snow-covered yard" I screamed.
I stopped at the door, silently watching the snow fall. The tiny ice crystals drifted peacefully down from the sky, covering the world in white. The door creaked as I opened it, and I carefully stepped onto the back porch so as not to slip and fall. I now had a full view of my backyard, a wintry paradise covered in snow. As I walked down the steps and to the sidewalk, the squeaking of the wooden steps combined with the crunch of the snow under my feet like two instruments in an orchestra, performing in the sweet silence all around me.
The white, cottony powder covered the branches of the trees. As I walked down the sidewalk, I saw the car resting under a thick layer of snow. The dogs ran to meet me, leaving trails of paw prints in the snow. I continued to the driveway and scraped some snow off of the car window, looking inside. The powder chilled my hand, so I put my hand inside my pocket to warm it. The snow began to fall harder. I wandered around the car, crunching the snow under my feet.
I heard birds chirping, and walked to the bird feeder, where several small birds were hopping around on the ground. The snow was peppered with tiny holes where seeded have fallen from the bird feeder. The birds flew away as I approachrd.
I never thought of myself as special. I was, in my opinion, just an average nerdy boy of poor physical fitness and less than average looks. I would spend my time away from school writing fan fiction, obsessing over anime and science fiction and playing with new gadgets. I always deamed to be a superhero with superpower like BATMAN, SUPERMAN and GOKU ....My mother told me that it's impossible to be like them, but I believe that one day, I'll be like them.
Then, a plucky young girl of less than 6 or 7 years of age sarted to walk over the one foot high chicken wire fence and onto the ice. There was a creak and the girl, sensing something amiss, said "Mommy?" just before the ice gave way. With a splash, the young girl crashed through the ice. At that moment three things happened. Firstly, the girl's mother screamed. Second, I sat upright more alert than he had ever been before in his life. And thirdly I was up and on the move.
I didn't know what overcame me but I needed to help. The precious drone on my lap crashed to the ground and was trampled by me as I ran. I threw off my jacket and scarf while running knowing they would weigh me down. As the woman yelled at her young suitor to "Do something." I was already moving across the ice to get the girl. I tried to pull her up but the ice further broke and I fell in too. As the water began to chill me to the bone I thought only of the young girl. I grasped her under the arms and pushed her up onto the ice near the edge. The young man was of almost no help so the mother reached out and pulled her daughter into her arms.
"Take her. Soo c-c-c cold.", I said as he pushed the girl upwards.
The woman turned back to help me using the scarf but I was nowhere to be seen.
I was under the water but I realized I was no longer cold. Some kind of warmth was filling me from the inside out. Maybe it was just the satisfaction of knowing I saved the young girl's life but I was certain it was more. Blackness enveloped me.
With a start I awoke again!
There were firemen all around me and I was laying in the snow with a mask on my face. Cheers erupted around me for reasons I knew not. It had been more than an hour before they pulled me out of the freezing water.
It was a couple weeks later that my life really changed. That was the day I saw a glowing blue-grey ball of fiery smoke spontaneously erupt in my room. A truly strange thing to happen to anyone for sure. At first I thought it was a fire and tried to put it out. The flame would not smother nor be extinguished by water no matter what I tried. It also did not burn anything around it.
"What could this be? It was like no flame I had ever seen!! It's really stange. What is that! I can't Believe that."
Then, I thought maybe it was some kind of alien making contact with me, but it did not seem to communicate, it just kind of drifted around the room following me. It was only when I considered the supernatural that I came close to realizing what it truly was.
It was a spirit and it had come to me because I was a true hero. This was the beginning of my superpower.
Finally, I entered the world of superheroes, but I realised that this superpower will dispear bacause a strange voice said "Well, now, this superpower is the soul of a poor young boy who wants to be a superhero like you and help people but the destiny was too tough and we cannot change it but you can give him his last wish by helping someone who needed it a lot and using him to acheive that! Can you do that for him?" I was sad for the poor boy, so, I accepted without thinking.
I decided to help him, so, I went out of my house to look if anyone wanted some help, however I didn't found.
Suddently, I remembered a boy who was my friend when we was in the primary school. He lived a difficult life with his mother since his father's death, because she didsn't stop insulting him and yelling at him..... So, I decided to go to him to see him. I arrived to his home but no one opened the door, so, I pushed the door and I found that it was open. Then, I entered to see if it was anyone in, I entered step by step. Her mother was lying on the ground splashed with blood, sweat ans tears, I turned back to see and my friend was with a strange man who wants to kill him with a large katana.
When I saw this scenes, I froze in my place and immediately I remembered my superpower. So, I said "Please, help me to save my friend, I know that you wanted it a lot, so, can you do that?", the superpower became to grow, grow and grow more and more. In a wink, the superpower went to the stange man and he losted consciousness, I went to my friend to support him but he was just saying "My mother, where is she? Mother.....", so, I called the ambulance to take his mother.
Her health condition was stable despite her serious injury. My friend relaxed after hearing this and told me "I don’t know what to say. You’re the best. What would I do without you? You’re wonderful. Thanks a lot!"
Me and my old friend became the best friends ever, him and his mother become adorable and their situation became better than anytime and finally, the soul was satisfate and went to the heaven. I'll not forget this moments, they were the best moment I ever seen.
