"Copy, but change it a bit so it doesn't look like you copied" A quote so many of us have heard, or have said themselves to survive school. I was always one of the people being asked if they could copy from. Trent is that copy of my husband.
I have always seen my husband as a tree. Start with the fact the last name is Woods. But it's also who he is. He stands strong and steady, rooted. Quiet yet supportive, always ready for me to lean against, taking refuge in his shade. He lets my fire burn out and gives shelter, hiding among his branches. Just as a tree would with the forest critters.
Trent is a warrior, standing strong against the odds. Valery is his love, heaven help anyone that threatens her. Having lost his parents and sister as a kid, he is protective over his second family; his fellow Guardians. He controls the wind, able to send gusts as needed, he's put out Valery's fire more then a few times. But he can also see where the wind has been, what it's touched. He's a safe zone for all that he loves, always ready to lend a hand and help where he can.
A copy. But different.
