I’ve been looking forward to writing this, anon. I love such cute omg family stuff. I wasn’t sure how to portray Martha’s abilities, but I think I’ve got it down. To infinity and beyond!
Martha’s abilities were not overly strong while she was growing up at most times. The occasional telltale dream here and there showed that she did have some of her mother’s powers, but nothing really major ever happened until the youngest demigod’s 10th birthday.
The family of four were sitting together on a picnic blanket Spark had set up just outside the town as she opened her gifts.
“I hope you like it, Martha,” Spark smiled as she opened her last gift. “Your mother and I put it together ourselves.”
Martha opened the slim box carefully, revealing a necklace. It was simple, a silver chain with a deep purple and black pearl as it’s pendant.
“Oh, it’s beautiful,” She whispered.
Ianite grinned. “It’s an ender pearl from my realm. I thought you’d like it.”
“Helgrind, can you help me put it on?” She asked.
“Of course, Martha,” Helgrind answered, taking the necklace and putting it on his sister.
Martha held the small ender pearl in her fingertips and admired it. She didn’t notice that she had began to glow. “Mom, Dad, than-”
“Martha?!” Spark gasped, staring at the purple particles that replaced her.
“Oh no,” Ianite stated, concerned. “I didn’t think that’d happen.”
“Where’d she go?” Helgrind questioned.
“AH!” A scream came from behind them.
Martha had teleported to above the river.
“Aw, gods!” She cried, sopping wet, as she climbed out of the river.
“I think the ender pearl accidentally heightened your powers,” Ianite explained.
“Huh…” Martha murmured, suddenly glowing again. She disappeared a moment later, reappearing on top of Spark’s shoulders. “Hi Dad!” She laughed.
“Martha, please be careful,” Spark told her, although he was smiling. “You’re going to fall off something and hurt yourself.”
“Fiiine, I’ll stop,” She groaned, but she was already glowing again. She disappeared and reappeared on the bridge to the city. “If you can catch me!” She yelled.
The next half hour or so was spent chasing after the teleporting Martha. Helgrind and Ianite were doubled over and in tears because they were laughing so hard. It was all fun and games until Martha was laughing too hard to focus.
“Come on Dad, I’m not that far-” She began, but she began to glow again. She disappeared again, out of sight.
They couldn’t see her, but they could hear her screaming.
Ianite closed her eyes for a second before sprinting a couple feet away and holding out her arms. Martha landed in her arms, safe and sound. “Did I win?” Ianite joked.
“Love the necklace, Mom, but I’d rather not wear it anymore,” Martha told her, shaken, taken off the necklace and giving it to her mother after she put her down.
“Aaand, I’ve gotcha!” Spark said, grabbing Martha from behind and spinning around with her. Laughter once again filled the area.
“I think that means you’ve won your little game,” Ianite smiled.
“Oh yeah?” Spark said, putting down Martha and moving to wrap his arms around his wife. “Does that mean I get a prize?”
Ianite’s eyes crinkled at the edges as she smiled. Spark wasn’t sure why he loved that so much, but he did. She leaned in and kissed Spark lovingly.
Their children squealed.
“AHH! PDA, PDA!” Helgrind cried, covering Martha’s eyes.
Ianite shook her head at the two. She loved her family.u
