What if you woke up one morning to find you could float above your bed with a thought? What if you went down to the beach for a swim, only to realize you could breathe underwater? What if you could lift a car or start a fire in your palm? Or teleport across a city or even move objects with your mind? The inhabitants of Elias Island are about to find out.
The town of Elias Island has always seemed a bit peculiar, but islands, you might say, always feel that way. They tend to breed a peculiar sort of folk as well, and after a recent earthquake that shook the very foundations of the island, that peculiarity has reached its peak. It was just a few small things at first; odd, little occurrences that no one could really explain. As the days went on though, those strange incidents only increased in number, until most of the citizens were affected. Everyone began to discover little talents or abilities, which seemed to only grow in intensity the longer they stayed on the Island.
At first, it was kept entirely secret. No one wants to be the weird one on the block, especially when news this outlandish travels like wildfire. But keeping a secret as large as this one is getting harder and harder, and no one has any clue as to where these powers have come from. Even scientists have taken an interest in the Island, and have been sniffing around, under the pretext of geological examinations.
Lately, some citizens are beginning to test their new abilities, pushing themselves to their limits. Others are denying the changes completely, grasping at the remnants of their normal lives. Whatever they decide, the residents and new arrivals of Elias Island can no longer deny that they are a very peculiar sort of folk.
You might say, islands are peculiar that way.
