The energy ball disappeared, so I tried again. I decided to gather the energy from something else. The candles. I closed my eyes, frowning. My palms felt hot this time. When I opened my eyes, there was a ball in my palm. It was orange and yellow, and it looked like fire that was contained in a clear lumpy ball. It had a ring of yellow fire going around it, and it was changing shape constantly.
I closed my eyes again, then concentrated. When I opened my eyes, I was in complete control of the fire. I made it morph and move with my mind, as did Elias. This was brilliant. Suddenly, all of the lights died down, and turned off.
