Moist droplets clung together in small groupings. The air around him was liquid with their breath and their being.

Nearby, on the ground below, plants stirred. Their thirsty cores dug roots deep into the earth, searching out water.

Directly below, a fire crackled gloriously. Red-gold flames licked at the sky, devouring morsels of breath from its components.

His final moments would be his glory. Hissing down from his home in the sky, Aitch Tou-Owe extinguished himself.

Love the descriptions in this one. It took me longer than I'd like to admit to get Aitch Tou-Owe's name. :lol:

I'd say you definitely escaped Captain Planet territory with this one, though that would have been very funny!
