"You two are all elementals. Lucky. My strongest feat doesn't even come from me, but relies on what the Earth wants to tell me."
He heard the Earth whispering she knew how to help Adrian. It was worth a shot, I guess.
"Adrian. How would you like a mentor? Someone who will work every day with you until you master your magic, and someone who won't torture you? If you don't trust me, I understand. It is my fault my brother came to you today. I deeply apologize for that. But you have more power than anyone I've met. The Earth says she knows how to help you, but it will take a very long time of training. I can only help you but a touch."
"yes. The earth speaks to me. She aided me in reaching you, and calling my brother. She told me you were here. She told me you weren't cruel, just confused. She loves you, and she wants to help you. DO you want to hear her? If so, shut out all minds around you. Don't think anything. You must keep your mind clear. She is bashful, but she will come."
He tried to close his mind, shut away the things that terrified him, confused him...alieanated him, but he could not. His mind shook with the torrent of wretched thoughts that ran through his head. He prayed the others could not see them.
Donald aided Adrian. He told the Earth to help him, and she did so amazingly.
She sang out loud. He knew everyone in this room could hear it. She sang peaceful lullabies, causing relaxation. Then Donald could do no more.
The sound was replaced in his head by Alexander. The Earth was still singing, causing Dawn and Adrian to relax completely. He felt his throat tighten, and he coughed blood. He couldn't breathe for a full minute before Earth stopped her song, and they recovered. He motioned to Dawn to let it pass, and soon it did. Blood ran down his cheeks, and from his nose and ears. His eyes were blood red, with busted vessels. He didn't realize it at first, but more damage had been done than he thought.
