    Emris ~ Writer of Chosen

    Oh, dear. Still an excellent, pulling story line, but it's 'machine' and 'through' and 'sure'. I would try to use a dictionary while you write if you don't know how to spell a word, that's what I do. ~ Emris

    Masters of the elements (sry I changed the title)

    ADEM: He woke up that morning and thought. Da*n. It was today that he had to go to work. For some reason he always knew what, and where a problem in a mashean was. And thanks to that every weekend Adem had to help out at his dads car repare store. Adem loved school. Because every day he diddn't have to go to work, and he got to see Elena May. Her chocolet hair and sea green eyes, mesmorized him. Adem had a secrate box ful of her from three Year books. He shook her image out of his head. "Adem, Adem, come here. I need help finding whats wrong with this car." Adem sighed. "The go pedle is jamed, and it needs a new one and a thourgo scrubbing. Because someone spilled juces on it a whole lot." He said. Then aded"Can I have a day off today please." "Thanks, and um.. Shure." Yes, Adem thought as he ran back home. As soon as Adem got home, he jumped in his bed and thought. TV on. And like that the tellivition turnd on. Her. He thought and a image of Elena Mays room apperd. And they she was. Singging to her mirror. A line of birds sat on her open window. Also singing. Elena turnd around and looked at camera and said,"Adem. Please stop spying on me. I know your there. The red light is flashing." Mic Adem thought. "Sorry Elly." "Don't call me that!" She said. "Bye," he said. And turnd off the camra and layed back. "You know," he wisperd to himself."How can I control electronics with my mind." Little did Adem know. But that was a thought the rest of the elementals had, at some point in there lives. ((I need a name gender and a look for a caractors. Please tell me some of your ideas!!!))
