"My name is Blossom Utonium, and I am eight years old. My birthday is on January 17, but I was not born in the usual sort of way. My sisters, Buttercup and Bubbles, as well as myself, came into this world in a very peculiar manner. We were born with powers that made us different from other people. However, we decided to use these powers to protect innocent lives and save our home city from evildoers and those who wish to cause pain and misery to others. Together, the three of us became known as... the Powerpuff Girls.
"Our creator, Professor Utonium, was trying to create for himself a perfect child which he could raise and love as his own. He mixed together three important ingredients that everyone knows go together to make the perfect girls - sugar, spice and all things nice. However, that wasn't all. The Professor accidentally knocked over a jar containing a fourth ingredient; one that for some reason made all the difference. Nobody knows what it really is, but to scientists like the Professor, it was called 'Chemical X'. The Chemical engulfed the ingredients, and in a single brilliant flash of light, his mixture was gone. But in its place stood the three of us. I do not remember much about the first little while of our lives. All I remember is being so happy and full of energy and believing that people like the Professor were kind enough to deserve something in return. He gave us our names - which all start with B - and after a while we came to call the city of Townsville our home, and we protected it and its people with our lives. That was five years ago... we were born as children and not as babies, so even though we say we are eight, we're not quite that old really. We went to Pokey Oaks Kindergarten and everyone in Townsville loved us. But we couldn't stay in the one place forever..."
"Actually it was more like five and a half, when you think about i-"
"I'm not done yet!"
"In Townsville, we made a lot of friends. But, we quickly made a lot of enemies as well. From robbers and thugs to the most evil of all evil, we had to protect the city from it all. We even had to defend it from giant monsters that came to Townsville from an offshore place that it took the military only until recently to quarantine. The city would have been doomed without us. Many memories from our early lives were of us taking down the baddies and saving the day before we had to be home for bed. A lot of them were strange, too... like the time the Mayor called us in to his office when he'd misplaced his clothes... or the time a baddie named Mojo Jojo turned everyone into big chunks of meat-"
"That wasn't Mojo, it was Fuzzy Lumpkins!"
"Shut up, those kinda details aren't important anyway! Uh... ahem... No doubt many of those we defeated still hold a big grudge against us and wish to see us taken out someday... but thankfully that's yet to happen. Eventually, the Professor found himself a new job as a lecturer at a university. It meant a more stable income for the family and better opportunities for him to provide the three of us with a stable upbringing to counterbalance the rough lives we led as superheroes-"
"Look it up, Bubbles. The downside to him finding a job, however... was that we had to move away from the city that we held so dear and called home for our whole lives. We packed up early one morning and set out on a five hour trip north, arriving in a brand new city to meet brand new people and start our brand new lives. That place is called Megaville.
"For just under a year now we've been living here and things haven't changed too much. Still there are robbers, crooks and lowlifes that need a little lesson in law and order. Still there are people trying to do us in simply because we protect the weaker and less able. And still we gotta do all this before our bedtime. But that's the life we chose to lead. It's a life that's difficult and challenging and yet it's an adventure. We've met so many wonderful people already and surely there'll be more to see and do in the years to come. Some of those people go to school with us every day. Some of them we see when we fly over the streets on the way to save somebody. And some... some of them we haven't seen in a long time but we'll hopefully see again. It's those people that make what the three of us do so rewarding. We will do this all our lives because that's what we decided the moment our minds were made up. One day, we even hope to save the entire planet. Or... who knows? Maybe we have already. But, right now, all I want to do is study hard, make new friends... and hopefully pass this oral presentation! Thanks for listening!"
She lowered the sheet and sighed, her mouth spreading into a grin. She met the eyes of the Professor, who sat on the couch observing her as she rehearsed her class presentation about herself and her life. It was required work and even the Professor remembered doing one just like it when he was in second grade. Bubbles had already completed hers and although it was less sophisticated than Blossom's he was pleased with hers as well. Buttercup had yet to even show him a rough draft, although she promised she'd get it done before it was due on Thursday.
