    Ember relaxed and took a seat on a large rock to relax as she enjoyed the breeze. Picking up a smaller rock, she squeezed and crushed it in her hand.

    "Could you help me up?" she asked. "Getting up is the hardest bit after one of these...attacks," she finished.
    "Sure thing." Selma said, leaning down and carefully helping Vi to her feet. After a few moments, she slowly let go and asked "So, can ya stand on yer own?"

Hell, my family has spent billions every year trying to combat such messed up tragedies, trying to make life better for everyone. You can't judge me just because I'm rich. You can't judge me just because I haven't suffered like you. You can't judge me because I'm still alive. I'm not going to have this discussion with you, I have better things to do than get angry and make my heart race and leave me breathless. Not that you care I just fell on my ass for getting so upset. I'm not going to apologize for not taking your crap, nor am I going to apologize that my family has a lot of money. Get over yourself. The world doesn't owe you a thing. So it's messed up and people suffer and die, that's no excuse to give up and be a jerk. You do the right thing, even if it kills you. You stand up for what you believe in. You treat people better than they deserve, and certainly better than you think you deserve. Because as bad as the world is, that's no excuse to make it worse. You think I don't appreciate things? I appreciate every day I'm alive, because I can't tell you how many surgeries I had, or how many times my darn heart has nearly given up on me. Every day is a gift. Even when your chest hurts, even when your groggy and stuck in bed for days on end. So don't cry to me about how unfair the world is. You don't like it, do what I do and use everything you got trying to make it better. Now leave me alone before you really get my blood pressure up."

    "Will somebody help me back up?"
    "Make it better? What have you done? Really, I'd love to know. Your family does the work, not you. And you're speaking to me of 'standing up for what you believe in'. You haven't done more than pay lip service, as far as I know. Meanwhile, us little folks can't fight to make things better without dying. You'd love to see us die, wouldn't you? Applaud us for being martyrs for your cause, huh? Oh, wait. I wasn't exaggerating. 'Do the right thing, even if it kills you'. Really. That's what you'll tell us. How inspiring." Sloane clapped mockingly.

    "Let me set the facts straight. I hate you because you can say that and mean it. I'm not telling you to do more than understand. Yes, I'd love to see you taken down a few notches. But that's secondary. I could sleep at night if you weren't reduced a crying pile of jelly. But hearing you spout your ideal like that? Back it up with actions. Prove to me that you've done more than talk gibberish."

    A triumphant roar resounded. Anyone turning to look would see a panting but triumphant girl, happy to have made it to the top of the stairs.

    "That was awesome! I should do that every morning."

    She put her hands on her hips and savoured the moment, breathing in the fresh mountain air as she surveyed her new school. The teachers seemed to be letting them wait for now. Time to start making friends then. Who should she talk to first?

    Casimir stood up and cracked his back, "Glad to see you finally made it." He smiled, "Name is Casimir. Pleasure."

    "Thanks," Boss smiled, though his tone made him seem slightly, unsure.

    "Yeah, just have to be careful," she said.

    "I don't have to prove a damn thing to you. I might not be able to do much, but I do what I can. I recycle, I donate clothes and items I no longer need, I donate blood regularly, when I can I speak out about whatever bad things I see, and in juvy I got stabbed by another kid for sticking up for somebody. I used to read to a blind kid in the hospital. I hold doors open for people. I got punched in the face in second grade by Allison Drake when I told her to leave the smaller kids alone. One year I helped build a house for a poor family. I spent a summer volunteering at an old folks home. I raised money to get bullet proof vests for police dogs. Maybe that's not a big deal to you, but every chance I get I try to make somebody's life a little better, every time I see someone being mistreated I stand up for them, and I've scars to prove it. What have you done?"

    "Ogawa. Kyra Ogawa. The pleasure is mine," She bowed, drops of sweat dripping from her brow.

    "I hope the poor sods who carried our luggage didn't have to hike up these steps."

    Kyra nodded.
