I keep to myself. I don't give a lot away even when I'm being pried for information. I don't like letting people get to know me and I'll tell the most blatant of lies to get out of private conversations. I'm vague on purpose and I play dumb for fun. I like to watch people try to explain something after thinking it was clearly understood. I don't always give a false impression. Sometimes I'm genuine, it's just hard to tell.
Everything that I can do to keep people from putting their eyes on me I'll do. I'm into everybody's business but I'll never ever, while I can control it, let anybody into mine. I don't trust a living soul and I never will. Too many friends can become one too many enemies before you know it. I tell people that plain and clear. And if they point out something I already know I'm known to say 'tell me something I don't know', I hate people telling me facts about myself.
LJ and Monty were betrothed, Lynette Jenkins of Earth and Walter Monteith of Elementrium were married at the age of 19. LJ and Monty were part of a triad, a small trio of Lunar Elementals. My parents knew their romantic lives ended with them being husband and wife. Before that they dated other people, a lot of other people. Everyone and anyone they could. They led lives that were completely separate from each other until the day they were married. Now as a married couple, as parents they have no secrets from one another. They share absolutely everything from their biggest fears down to the most insignificant details of their day. Nothing goes left unsaid.
I'm an only child. My parents are the kind of people who didn't really want kids. They only had me because I was part of the whole being married deal their parents made with each other. I was part of the package and being the only one of my kind I was spoiled rotten. My grandparents thought if I was given everything I ever wanted it would encourage my mother and father to have more children. Seeing that offspring would so willingly be provided for had no influence on them. They didn't actually want me although they could never admit that because of the reputation it would bring on our family. They smiled and pretended they were trying and it just wasn't working out.
The family I came from . . . is the family I come from. We've been conducting ourselves discreetly on Earth in the northern part of North America for over a century. From a young age I was taught verbally the extent of normal Elemental abilities, and I was shown through various demonstration the advantages and disadvantages of having them. We operate in the way that we believe allows us to better function as a unit. Generation after generation the same trends continue. Habits are rewarded as flaws are punished. Whether the efforts have been successful or not is a completely different topic. We do strange things according to the benefit to us and there's nothing more to be said about that.
If my oh so brilliant family were half as wily as the majority of them think they are they might've finally devised a way to keep us out of the world a little more permanently. I've been bored by life for a long time and that's due to my family. They've got a high standard of expectations everyone has to live up to. Marriage is always number one. Which isn't surprising, that tradition is how they think we survive. I'm not willing to bend to fit their ill-fitting mold of who they think I am. I live by their rules to the point where I choose to deviate from them. When it's time to exercise the full reach of my freewill I'll decide what my choices are. I won't let them force me to be anything or anyone that I don't want to be.
