"Okay, everyone," I said, as I opened the door to the lounge. I still held the lotus in my left hand. Everyone was silent, and looked up at me. That was one of the gifts of my inheritance.
"It's my birthday today, and I'd like to tell you all something."
There was an expectant pause.
"I've just come into my Inheritance, which is to say I've now got the Gifts my parents had. Control over people and objects, healing, that kind of thing. And I'd like your help making sure I use them the right way."
There were a few murmurings among those gathered.
"So, what exactly can you do?" said a voice.
