The explosion continued, the female had no idea what to do other than hope the kids are truly okay. The explosion finished when the sparks ended slowly, smoke was everywhere and Summer’s appearance looked all charred and messy to the point that her hair didn’t look neat at all. It in fact looked like she just woke up in the morning with just her everyday clothes on. The female was curled up, this hasn’t happened to her in quite a while and even though that truly did upset her, she knew it wasn’t her fault. The kid just charged at her and she literally exploded. It was tough being a fireworks mage, and Summer was living proof that fireworks can be a truly dangerous thing.
While the smoke invaded the area, Summer got up weakly and looked around, just as she expected, most of the kids were laying around motionless, save for herself. She didn’t know what to do but to check up on all the kids, just to see if they were okay. Usually when this type of incident happens (which is rarely) they will usually come to, they will just be in extreme pain. It seems like it will be a hospital job for them all. Summer sighed, she knew she wouldn’t be able to take them all to the hospital, which is a shame.
Suddenly, noises could be heard, clip clopping on heels and scuffling to be precise. The fireworks expert turned to look behind her to see it was one curious person. They seemed to know what they were doing and they even looked to the fireworks expert to confirm their suspicions, she clearly used something without intending to, and they really did feel sorry for her about that.
“The kids will get up. Hopefully” The randomer stated. “Maybe now they will quieten down however.” They continued as they looked over all the kids. “I heard the explosion earlier, it got me wondering what it was… Did you cause this??” They asked as they finished scanning through all the kids. “They seem good. They will come to soon… All they need is a good rest.”
“Yeah… I know… I did unfortunately cause it.” The fireworks expert admitted. “One of the kids with the flaming bodies charged straight for me, because of the magic I use, I exploded…” She sighed softly. She really couldn’t believe it happened again, she thought she had all the darned explosions under control. But it didn’t seem to be that way.
It was a few months after the festival. Summer, Jian and Hung were playing along and they all were having fun, quite typical of the ragtag trio, but they never bothered the villagers that much and they always enjoyed the day's activities. Because of the effects of the firework shooting straight for Summer, she was still struggling to control her magic and she was very cautious anywhere she goes incase fireworks spark out of her hands for no reason whatsoever, the boys did feel sorry for her and always tried their best to cheer up the female, but to their avail. It was nice that she was out and playing that day, but who knew if fireworks would uncontrollably affect the day.
The other three played tag with each other that day, Summer cartwheeled and flipped her way out of dodging every potential attempt to get tagged. Of course the boys were always impressed by her skills, but they never found it fair either. She was just glad they all were having fun instead of being menacing. The fun stopped however when suddenly smoke was seen puffing up in the air. Summer noticed this and she looked to Hung and Jian, pointing in the air, she couldn’t believe what she was seeing. One of the houses appeared to be on fire, and because they were just outside the village, they couldn’t tell for sure. Summer said nothing as she charged straight for the village, Jian and Hung followed suite cautiously, they had to keep an eye on her incase she lost control of the firework magic that she recently gained.
Summer ran and ran until she was in the village. There was indeed a fire and it seemed all the villagers were helping put out the fire. What Summer didn’t expect however was a piece of wood thrown behind her that was covered in flames. Summer lost control and she emanated into a bright firework, triggering a powerful explosion that hurt everyone around. Summer was scared, she didn’t know what to do at the time and she thought she killed everyone. When the sparks died down, Summer cried.
Summer looked to the kids that were now just waking up, she was glad they managed to get up without any issues, but they seemed to be confused as to what happened, and they felt very regretful, especially the child that charged straight for her. They then looked to the female and shrugged their shoulders. It seemed Summer didn’t need to talk to them at all, they only needed to be shown what harm could come to them if they continued this nonsense.
“See, they all seem to be good now.” The stranger spoke, looking at all the kids who seemed to come to their senses and the dangers of their gang-wars.
