A girl by the name of Sapphire lives in a town called Zalim. She lives a pretty hard life for an 18 year old. Despite her age she has not found interests in the opposite sex and she knows it's odd. Perhaps its the fact that Sapphire is locked in her room, completely isolated from the outside world. Her father says it's because of her "Element." She is fire. Supposedly fire is the most dangerous of all elements. Her town looks similar to western ghost towns you see cowboys ride through, but one day it's not a cowboy that rides through. Its a young man her age. He is to be her caretaker while the father works. Though, their relationship goes way beyond the boundaries of just "care-taking". This is the story of a desperate girl who needs out of her prison, or, she will become very...flammable.
