I open my eyes, then quickly scrunch them closed again in protection against the severe stabbing rays of sunlight. The grit against my cheek feels like sandpaper as I lift my head, increasing the intense pounding of my headache. Jesus Christ, where am I? I open my eyes a crack and stare straight ahead, my vision filled by a scene right off a postcard. Picturesque palm trees sway in the foreground, and farther back a sea of verdant greenery climbs its way up a slate grey mountain tipped with snow. I turn around and a turquoise sea encompasses my sight for as far as the eye can see.I look up and a harsh sun beams down on me, burning my skin into flakes. I've gotta get some shade. I struggle to my feet and start to walk towards the forest.

After what seems like forever, I reach the emerald green trees, and the second I step underneath the leaves blessed shade cools the sweat on my brow and seems to almost make the pain in my exhausted sunburnt body disappear. I fall to my knees and rest for a few minutes against the trunk of a oak. Thought other than just the basic animistic needs returns to my head, and I start wondering how I got here in the first place.



Hey guys! If you'd like more of this story from the island prompt please tell me in the comments, I'd appreciate any constructive critisism you could supply. Thank you so much! <3 <3 <3

I woke up as a small child, unwanted. But why? It was later found, I was born with no special talent. I wasn't like the others. I wasn't like everybody else. I try to attend school every day, I try and blend in with everybody else. But everybody knows about me. I'm the mysterious girl with no talent. I see others at school showing their talents off, and I can't help but feel jealous.
I've heard rumors in the hallways, walking to my classes, saying that my mother had no talents and that's why I didn't. But I know they aren't true. My mother's talent is singing, and she's wonderful at it. People always come up to me and say I'm unwanted, no one will ever love me, and even when they talk to me, they don't make eye contact. They're afraid that because I have no talent, if they interact with me too often, they'll lose their talents, too.
I hate it. Just because I'm different talent-wise doesn't mean I'm not a human being, just like them. I've been trying for years, ever since I've figured out what was wrong with me. Why people don't like me. When I was told, I was devastated. I've been trying so hard to find a talent, but haven't had any such luck. Sure, I'm pretty, but no one wants to interact with me. Like I said before, they're afraid of losing their talents and traits if they get too close to me.
