I. THE HISTORICAL DETAILS
To say that I am anything related to what humans would call normal is silly. I'm a Nature Iramasha, I wasn't born with parents or a family. My mother, well sorry, technically my former self loved to explore. I still do but I was born when I explored a little to recklessly, I know it probably wasn't the best thing to do at the time but I didn't care. I was part of a small sect of Nature Iramasha and we all treated each other like family but I was just.., I longed to be free. It's hard to explain. Part of my element. Nothing contains the sky and so nothing contained my predecessor. She sought the world, not the Iramasha Realm. She sought a place she had never seen before. The Human Realm.
I.. She left without telling anyone and sadly never came back. You see she died. A demon killed her, quite brutally. Thankfully I lack the ability to remember that much. Everything about her is hazy and I can not really remember that much. So she died and the position was once again open, the role of Nature Iramasha of the Sky. I was constructed because of it. Built from her essence as she was built from her predecessor's. The thing was though. I was constructed in the human realm and I had no idea how to get to the Iramasha Realm.
So I was born in the Human World, from a woman I'd call my mother's death. It's not really a good start to life but while the ins and outs of Aether are hard to grasp for me my natural aether was naturally attuned to the sky! I could fly before I could even walk, sadly I didn't get much of a childhood. I was born and constructed with this youthful female's appearance. I know I know, why? I think it has something to do with the fact that a lot of Mythological Deities are female when it comes to air and the sky, so maybe I am just continuing it? Anyway. I've gone off on a tangent. I am going to explain my entire life story now, or at least.... sum it up so you can read it!
Alright! So here I am, stuck in the human world. NO IDEA WHAT I AM GOING TO DO! I decided to do what my predecessor did, well... minus the dying part. I wanted to try and avoid that at all costs. I tried to explore, from what I gathered I was stuck in a desert. It was hot, I didn't mind though, the thing that did suck was the fact that sand would get all over me at times. It sucked... and well... I didn't have clothes. Don't you laugh alright! You'd be thinking, wait if she is one of these Iramasha that can create objects with just their power then why was she naked? I didn't know how to do all that stuff. Either way at the time nudity was normal, so it didn't really matter. I think I was in a place called Egypt - unless some other place has massive pyramid structures. Their language was really hard to understand, it wasn't like my mother tongue which the Iramasha spoke and so I tried to avoid people a lot.
I'd try to watch them from afar, trying to learn or integrate myself into society. I was lucky enough to find a woman with a baby that was teaching her child. She didn't seem aware of me, in fact. Thinking about it no one saw me but I didn't know about the whole spiritual thing at the time, so I was worried people would see me until I realised they couldn't. I was able to learn from her, like her child. I spent a lot of time here. She even felt like a mother, despite never even being aware of me in her house. I always felt like the baby boy could see me, He would look in my direction a lot and respond when I spoke although a quickly stopped acknowledging him when I saw his mother get uncomfortable from him speaking to empty-air.
I was quite content with this place! I liked it and even though no one could see me it felt nice to be here. I tried to help out where possible because obviously I've got to do stuff to make up for the fact I was basically freeloading here I slowly began to grasp my powers and the element that was the core of my being. It was wind! Well technically it was air but wind sounds cooler. How'd an invisible girl help you must be thinking. That's easy. I found out my powers influenced the physical world as well. I could alter the wind and air currents, it was awesome! When some people sought to go to the trees and collect honey I kept those pesky bees at bay so they couldn't harm the people, it probably wasn't fair on the bees but they needed to learn to share anyway.
I got to watch the little boy I had been fascinated in grow up, when he was a young boy his parents began to take him out on the water. Something I had always wondered about but dared not approach, I didn't feel "the sky" down there you know? I was a little timid of it. So everything was great! The people seemed to brave this pool of water and went fishing, they were teaching him how to use the wooden horse that ran on water. Wait what? What's wooden horse? That thing on the water and you use sticks to make them move. OH! That's right they're called boats... Umm. Moving on. So we'd go riding across the water and having a grand old time, I was really flying above the boat and observed. This continued for a few months until... there was an accident and the boy fell in! He fell in! I froze for a moment before I dived right in to try and get him, this little guy I had watched grow and I somehow just knew that if he stayed under there like that then he'd die! But well umm.. Don't tell anyone but I don't know how to swim and well, I drowned. Wait. No I didn't drown drown but I almost drowned. I swear I should've died that day along with him but by miracle we... rose? The water released us and I was back in the air hearing some strange word like "Nun". It left me really afraid, breathing was impossible down there and there was no air... I was afraid of drowning ever since but don't tell anyone okay?
So time-skip because things seem irrelevant at this point. We'll pick back up around, seven years after the boy's- our close encounter with Death. He had grown up, well for the time anyway, it's changed so much nowadays when previously you just got to puberty and you were an adult you know? So he was basically a man, I had earned his name at this point. We began to talk when he was alone, I was only visible to him, I hand resigned myself to stay here with him as much as I felt the need to explore. We learned a lot from each other though it was well worth it, I learned he was called Setka. Although I couldn't give him my own, instead he called me Nut - I had no idea what it meant at the time - but I accepted the name graciously from him. We spent hours talking together.
I showed him what I had learned, after all he seemed amazed that I could fly and control the air. I felt bad he was ignorant to the ways of my power. Granted I too was ignorant to just what my power was and how it worked. I knew of aether and what I was using, although at the time it was unnamed to me. I grew to like Setka more and more, it was nice at the end of the day to find him alone and be able to spend the evening with him. I didn't know at the time but I liked him a lot in more than one way. Err... Back to the topic at hand. We talked a lot.
What next? What happened was interesting. Setka could touch me. I had never tried to as I thought I'd just pass through him like I did a lot of other things. He was different though. It started as a simple mistake with him falling over and taking me with him, laying underneath him it was weird to feel someone press against me.
