Although, you spelt it wrong (Oi Oi Oi), you had the idea. Great job! :D

Also another congratulations goes to Mighty Lion, for being the first reviewer :D So to refresh your memory:

Delilah Addison has grew up thinking she's completely 100% human but in this first chapter, she gets her power to control water. So her mom (Julie) and dad (David) get a call from Dee's brother, Tank (or Thomas... or Tom), saying that it's an emergency, so they rush home from work and find them demanding an answer from Julie. Julie tells them about 'Blazing Blade' AKA Blake Reed and how he's Delilah's real dad. So now she's just got stuck into her mom and is going off to 'think'.

Oh and another thing that doesn't even relate to any of this, have you heard of the song 'If I die young' by The Band Perry. It's really sad T_T That is the ONLY country song I'll listen to (in other words I don't like country). AND KurtHugoSchneider just uploaded another video (On Youtube) with Sam Tsui :D 'Hold it against me' cover. Definately worth a few minutes to look it up.

I realised that this was going nowhere. "I'll be in my room if you need me – actually no, I need time to think. I'll come down when I'm ready."

I stormed up to my room and slammed the door. I pressed my back up against it and let out a big sob that I was holding. Several more followed as I slid down the door. My mother lied to me for almost fourteen years. My biological fathers dead. I don't even have a picture of him and me toge- I abruptly sat up straight and cut of mid-sob. I crawled over to my bookcase and searched the bottom shelf until I found what I was looking for. I pulled the huge A3 sized, pink photo album.

I flicked through until I found what I was looking for. I was about a year old in the picture and holding me was the infamous 'Blazing Blade'. We were sitting in an outdoor chair in the backyard. I was laughing and looking up at him and he was grinning at the camera. Sure enough, He had the exact same eyes as me. I also noted that my 'shaggy' hair came from him, as well.

I pulled out that picture and searched for more. By the time I finished, I had twelve photos. Twelve photos is all I have of him and me. I didn't know what I was going to do with the pictures, I mean, I barely knew the guy. I'd prefer photos of me and dad together. But still, I guess it's nice that I have photos of my biological father.

He had dark brown, shaggy hair. His eyes were the same sea green as mine. He was good looking for a guy the age that he was. Judging by the photos, I adored him.

I don't know how long I stayed there, looking at the photos, until a soft knock on the door made me jump. "Who is it?" I said, wearily.


"Come in," I sighed. I didn't want to face mom anytime soon. I wondered how that would go, with it being my birthday and all.

Tank hesitated before opening and shutting the door behind him and sitting down cautiously beside me and my photos.

"You know," Tank started, "I've always wanted to have superpowers. I wouldn't usually admit that to anyone. But it looks like you're going through a tough time."

I looked over at him, surprised. "You've always wanted powers? But... Why? Why wouldn't you just want to be normal?" I tried to find the right words. "I mean, I get it's cool and everything but, wouldn't you just want to fit in?" What I guess I'm trying to say is why would you want to be a freak?

"Dee, you still don't get it. Having a power is awesome. You just don't see it. I mean, controlling water? That's wicked! At least you can control water and not, I don't know, turn into a bunch of hay or something. (A/N: Just drove past some... right... there) " I sighed.

"I guess you're right," I mumbled.

"Of course I am," he grinned. "Why are you still sad?"

"Tank. How are you?" His face grew confused.

"I'm fine. Why?"

"Tank, really. How are you doing with all of... This," I gestured in between me and him with my hands. His crease in between his eyebrows deepened, all tracks of humour gone.

"I'm not... I'm not sure. Why are you worried about me?"

"Because you're my brother... or half brother," I mumbled the last bit, but he still heard it.

"Delilah," he said, sternly. "I am your brother. Not half brother. Sure, it might not technically be true, but you've known me for all of your life. We grew up together. we've always been there for each other. we fight a lot of the time, sure, but don't all siblings? We're not half brother and sister. We are brother and sister."

I smiled and gave him a hug. "Thanks Tom," I mumbled into his chest.

"Umm... It's alright. But just because I gave you that 'speech' doesn't mean you can hug me," he said awkwardly. I laughed and pulled away.

"Listen Dee. I know you're taking this pretty hard, but I can tell you now that mom's taking it a lot harder," I frowned, but didn't say anything. "As soon as you left, dad cracked and yelled at mom for sleeping with one of his best friends before he stormed away to his room. Then she started crying, expecting the same thing from me as dad or you gave her, but instead I told her that I'd help her sort it out. I mean, she couldn't help it. You heard her, Delilah, she was confused that night. She didn't know what she was doing. She told me that she regretted not telling anyone."

I stayed silent for a while before I said anything. "Fine. I'll talk to her. But that doesn't mean I'll forgive her." He sighed.

"Okay. Thank you. So... How about these powers? Have you tried anything else yet?"

I smiled "No. But I'd like to see what I can do."

"Awesome. Let's go practise in the backyard with them." We both stood up and half walked half jogged downstairs. Tank grabbed my upper arm before we went out the back door. "After you talk to mom."

I pouted "Fine. But you start thinking of all the things I can do."

I walked back into the lounge room where mom was still sitting, dry tear tracks on her cheeks with bloodshot eyes. When she saw me she stood up from the couch and looked like she was debating with herself to stay put or to run over to me. I didn't give her a chance to decide before I walked up to her and hugged her. She hugged me just as hard as I was hugging her.

"I' sorry," we both said at the same time before laughing and pulling back. I spoke first. "I... I just needed some time to think. But if I was in your shoes, I'd probably lie to my daughter too," she flinched when I said the word 'lie'. I bit my lip. "I didn't mean it like that but-"

"No, you're right. I did lie to you and I shouldn't have. You have no idea..." She trailed off, her eyes filling with tears. "I'm just really sorry, Dee. You don't have to forgive me if you don't want to. What I did was unforgivable," she choked up, trying to keep herself from crying. I've hardly ever seen mom cry before and to tell the truth, it scared me.

"Mom," I smiled, sadly. "I already have."


"I've already forgiven you." Her face looked confused as she tried to comprehend what she was hearing before having the slightest bit of hope flash through her eyes.

"You have?" She sniffed.

"Yes." She grinned and picked me up and spinning me around in a circle as if I was a little kid.

"Thank you, Dee!" She put me back down on my feet and kissed me. She gasped and her eyes widened, a little excitedly. "Your birthday's tomorrow!"

I rolled my eyes. "Thanks for remembering," I said sarcastically. She smirked at me.

"Tank wanted me to show him my power and I'm pretty interested in it too."

"Umm, about that. I did some research, just in case you did get a power. And I found a school," I frowned.

"But that means I'm not going to go to the same high school as my friends that went to middle school with me."

"You'd be surprised. A lot of kids get their powers in middle school, so one of your friends could be someone you know. And the reason why none of them told you they were going to that high school is because they are huge on security. They're not allowed to tell anyone the truth about what high school they go to. They make that very clear from the beginning. Anyway, about your power. Go to Tank, I need to talk to your father."

"Wow. That. Is. Wicked!"Tank exclaimed.

We were in the backyard, by the pool. I was making tiny raindrops bounce out of the water and drop back down again, like a water show.

"It's actually really fun," I laughed. A brilliant idea formed in my head. I stopped the bouncing droplets before I made a circular move with my hands over the water. It slowly started to whirl around before becoming faster and faster. I stopped making the motions over the water and just let it spin itself around.

"Ta da," I grinned and spread my arms out. "We now have a whirlpool!" That's all I got in before tank jumped in, clothes and all. I laughed as he tried to place his feet on the bottom of the pool, but kept getting them knocked out from under him. I tried to focus on getting an invisible 'box' in the water. It worked as he dropped to the bottom of the pool without any water supporting him.

He gaped up at the water 'walls' surrounding him. "Are you gonna get out or are you gonna stay in there forever?" I asked. He slowly stood up so he was waist deep in the water-free box as the water still rushed past him. He climbed out of the pool and shivered. Hmmm, I thought.

"Tank, stay still for a minute." He slowly turned to face me, watching my face as it scrunched up with concentration. I focused on all of the water in between the material on his clothes. I slowly raised my hand over his torso and grinned as raindrops came out of his clothes, leaving him dry. I did the same thing to his hair.

Something flickered in Tom's eyes, too quick for me to catch what it was. Amusement? Excitement? Before I could fully figure out what it was he walked over to the 'pool toys' tub. I watched, confused. I was still trying to guess what he was doing when he squirted me with a water pistol.

Or should I say, tried to squirt me. The water was, once again, floating in front of me. I started to smirk evilly. "You really shouldn't have done that," I said in a playful, but evil voice.

His amused eyes turned into panic. "Dee, come on. I'm your brother," He begged. I started to drift the water, very slowly, towards him. "Dee," he said, his voice went from begging to warning. "Delilah. Drop the water. Now." I started to laugh. It sounded like I was going insane. I laugh like this every time I'm around my friends. I've just never done it in front of Tank before, so now he looked worried, and concerned for my health.

He decided he was going to go back to begging now, as he dropped to his knees. "Dee, please. I really don't want to get wet!"

"Why'd you jump in the pool?"

"Umm... Aaaghh... Look, a giant dog!" He pointed behind me. I instantly dropped the water and spun around.

"Is it cute?" I asked, searching for the dog. I frowned, after about twenty seconds, giving up my search for the dog and started to hunt for something else... Maybe something as tall as six foot seven... And really buff... I caught sight of his massive frame running upstairs inside. I glowered, but decided to give up anyway.

I made my way inside, wondering how mom was going with dad. Maybe I'll just take a little peek. I guess it is bad, spying on someone but I'm always curious. I'm afraid my curiosity will get the best of me and is going to lead me into something terrible. I don't think now will be that terrible... Usually I wouldn't go spying on people in bedrooms, just in case I got an imagine engraved into my brain that I couldn't get rid of. But I don't think now will be one of those times... maybe.

I stuck a tiny bit of my head into mom and dad's room, fearfully, afraid of what I'd find after thinking about it, a little too much. I sighed in relief as I saw something that wouldn't make me go blind. Mom and dad were hugging. I was so glad that they made up before my birthday. I snuck away, quietly, not wanting them to know I was there.

Sooo... What did you think? I'm going to have to apologise for the abrupt change of feelings towards each other. I just wanted to get the heavy drama out of the way so she can have her birthday and start going to school. And then meets Warren... And Lash ;D
