Journeys and Adventures

Post by EphPhoenix on 15th April 2014, 1:42 pm

First topic message reminder :

[Attn: Open]

It was a gorgeous sunny day in the city of Maplevale. The morning rush had already passed, and with school not yet started for another few weeks, the traffic was at calm levels--save the rush of the teenagers with cars. The city was expanding rapidly with the new jobs that the energy and technology plants were opening bringing new people to it. The city had begun to swell from a population of 100,000 to nearly 200,000 in the span of half a decade. The construction jobs prevalent to deal with the expansion had been numerous, but it was dying down finally. Thankfully. It was still growing rapidly, beginning to earn the nickname "mini-metropolis." It boasted numerous parks, a growing expanse of skyscrapers, a few large lakes, and two centers of learning renowned for their academia nationwide--one of them Ivy League. In short, life was good in the city.

Jericho meditated on the roof of the city, trying to focus his power, trying to understand it. He still was unsure of what to do with this power. Becca was still trying to get him to put on some ridiculous outfit and "hero it up" with her. Still couldn't believe that had become a reality.

But was that what his powers were meant for? There was the argument that power not used was no better than having none at all. There was also the argument that great power carried great responsibility--the Spider-Man credo--but just because you had the power were you necessarily obligated to the world around you to use it?

"You're thinking about it again, aren't you?"

Jericho sighed. He'd been so lost in his thoughts that he hadn't even felt Becca's presence. His face made a grimace that faded when he saw Becca in her civvies and not in her "Vivacious" uniform.

"You always do that," she grumbled, folding her arms. "I'm doing some good out there."

"I didn't say a word," Jericho said, closing his eyes and trying to return to meditating.

"You don't have to," she snapped, "your face says it for you. Look, I messed up and am trying to make up for it like you taught me!"

"I don't recall telling you to name yourself 'Vivacious,'" he said with an unsuppressed smile.

She made a face. "You're a real smug bastard, y'know that?"

"Guilty," he added with a laugh.

"Hey!" she said grabbing his arm and pulling him up. "Enough with the monk stuff! I'm hungry!"

Jericho popped an eye open to look at her. "You're a grown woman," he commented. "Go and get yourself something to eat."

Suddenly, he felt a spike of energy and saw a glowing ball of golden light in Becca's hands. She looked highly disgruntled.

"I don't wanna eat alone," she said. "And just like you helped me, it's my job to help you. And all this antisocial behavior just isn't good for you."

Jericho sighed. "I take it that means you're gonna badger me until I agree to go?"

"You're a fast learner!" Becca said cheerfully.

Jericho sighed. "Alright, let's go..." he said getting up.

"Yay!" Becca exclaimed, jumping for joy. "And hurry up! I've got orientation in an hour!"

Jericho sighed again. This girl was nothing but trouble...

[Attn: Tam, Terry, Open]

A twenty got them in. Music was blaring as kids danced, while others made out on couches. Horatio blinked in surprise as he actually saw a couple of people actually talking. Of course, it was ruined when he crossed by and found the intense discussion was over how doable certain celebrities were. Though he did agree that Natalie Portman was, indeed, a hottie. But that was irrelevant.

Making it through the main part, he went upstairs and down one of the halls. He could see a few underage girls giggling about and grimaced. Maybe Tam's right. One or two is one thing, but I've seen too many... He quickly looked in each of the rooms, finally turning into a room and beckoning the others to follow.

"Ahh...gotta do this in style," he said. "You two stand wherever. Hope you don't mind getting wet."

He grabbed a chair, but before stepping on it, pulled out his cellphone and started messing with it. After a moment, he put it down and stood on the chair. "Free Bird" began playing and he swayed to the music. It went like this for a few minutes until it got to the bridge.

"And this bird you cannot chaaaaaaaaaaange!" he sang along, pulling out a lighter and holding it aloft as he swayed with the music. After a moment, fire alarms went off as above where he'd held the flame was a sprinkler, which came alive and began spraying all of them.

He laughed, jumped down, grabbed his phone, and beckoned to the others. "We might want to skedaddle."

[ATTN: Horatio, Tam]

Oh god this had been a horrible idea.

Drunk people thought so loud. His mind was filled with other people - and most of their thoughts were pretty inane when drunk. He stayed in the corner at the party, feeling a headache come on as he tried to shut them out.

A boy near him tried to give a drink to his date, and Terry reached over blindly and knocked it out of his hands. Drugged. The boy's thoughts turned aggressive and violent as he turned to him, but Terry had already fled back, finding Horatio in the middle of the party - with a lighter.

The sprinklers went off, and in moments Terry was soaked. He always thought fire sprinklers would be pleasant, like a shower, but no, these sprinklers were serious business, and he had no issue with running to follow Horatio out.

[Attn: Downtown]

"All right. Just remember. I asked nicely," Omniman says. As one of them gets close, he reaches up and catches the hammer swing by the hilt before the actual hammerhead ever reaches him. Then he rips the weapon away from him and kicks him back across the street. After sizing the weapon up, he bends it in his hands like play-doh and tosses it aside. The rest of them charge at him, but he winds back both of his hands. Time seems to slow down between them. They continue to rush forward as his hands come together. The clap is so forceful that the force wave knocks back the nearest of the charging thugs the furthest, sending him flying through a wall as the others are all thrown back or outright knocked down. The white-clad hero proceeds to race around, practically faster than the eye can read. As each one starts getting up, he punches their skulls back down to the concrete, before rushing inside and picking up the one that'd gotten thrown through the brick. He throws him back outside to the street, where he skids to a stop. "Are you finished?" He soon hears police sirens inbound.

[Attn: Downtown, Open]

There she was standing outside one of the buildings downtown. In her hand was a USB flash drive containing information on the corrupted law firm, Denton & Willems. It had been highly suspected that this firm participated in acts such as rigging the jury, falsifying evidence, bribing witnesses, and blackmailing specific judges in order to get clients clear of charges. So far nobody could prove that the firm committed such actions; however, she was good at her job and had managed to sneak in, get information that contained various illegal actions of the firm, and cover her tracks.

- Moments earlier -
Brianna had managed to keep in the shadows, moving from one alleyway to the next, after her motorcycle accident. She was able to get to her target, a law firm that conveniently managed to get criminals off scot-free. “Here goes nothing.” She closed her eyes, focusing her mind. She saw flashes, flashes of her breaking into building. One moment she got caught….Wait, no, she didn’t. Various images flashed in front of her. Her head began to pound loudly and blood dripped from her nose.

When she got what little information she could of potential futures, she wiped the blood off. She would need to take out cameras, hack into the CEO’s computer, and get out unnoticed. Luckily this was a planned operation.

- Present -
She took a deep breath as she looked down at the drive. It hadn’t gone without a hitch. She had to use her persuasion abilities from time to time; however, she made sure that everyone would forget about her and that there was no traceable evidence.

Brianna began to quickly make her way through the city alleyways. She needed to get out of downtown and find a safe place so she could backup the files and transmit them.

[Attn: Open]

"We got what we came for, sir!"

"Darn. Play time's over. Men! Take aim!"

The man he'd been fighting suddenly leapt back from him as his men suddenly aimed at the bystanders in the room. "Make a choice."

Jericho stayed where he was, teeth gritted. The man nodded. "Good choice." His men began filing out, their bounty in hand.

As the last of them left, Jericho monitored them. They were collecting in something...a helicopter! He Moved, suddenly charging into one of them and slamming him to the ground. The others looked on, aiming, but Jericho drop-kicked the guy, then grabbed him and Moved again, landing on a nearby rooftop. "You tried to hurt my friend. You stay."

Fighting ensued.


[Attn: Tam, Terry]

As they rounded a corner, there was the girl in her orange hoodie standing down the hall. Her hands were upraised in front of her, fingers spread in a halting gesture, shaking her head fervently. "Mystery!" she said urgently.

[ATTN: Tam, Horatio]

Terry stopped, blinking at the girl in front of them as it dawned on him. Somewhere in here...?

Terry stopped following Horatio out and opened his mind, scanning the room again. He grimaced through the noise of the party, searching for anything out of place. Panic and confusion and amusement from the sprinklers, sex, more sex...

And hostility. Like the base of a chord it hummed under the noise of the room. Terry turned back towards the party, his clothes now totally soaked, searching around the room for the source. For a moment, he thought there wasn't one, that it was just a feeling with the place, until he thought he found a focus - then more than one. Too fuzzy for him to place it. Terry shuddered - now that he noticed it he couldn't ignore it, and it felt disgusting.

"Where is it, dear?" he said to the ghost, growing more and more nervous.

[ATTN: Jericho]

Lightweight looked up as she heard something overhead nearby - a helicopter? What the hell was up with this city tonight?

She took off towards it, seeing two men fighting on a rooftop near the helicopter. She wasn't sure she was gonna make it before the helicopter was gone...

[Attn: Lightweight, Open]

He Moved, crossing a block and slamming him into a brick wall, smashing him almost through it. He slipped a retaliatory strike and cuffed the guy in the throat. The guy choked, and Jericho viciously slammed his face into the hard concrete and put him in a sleeper hold.

"Your ass is going to answer for what you--"

A spotlight suddenly shown on him. The chopper had caught up. Immediately, rounds of automatic gunfire shot off. Jericho wasn't playing that game again. He Moved, clearing away from the gunfire as it lit into the soldier. The man groaned and fell over dead. Jericho growled in anger, standing under a large tree that cast him in darkness.


[Attn: Terry]

She watched Horatio act like an idiot, and only when he held the lighter aloft and still for a minute did she realize what he was about to do. "Don't you da--"

Too late. The sprinklers came on and she was instantly sodden. "You are such a dick..." she breathed acerbically.

His only response was a mischievous chuckle before shunting them out of the room and down the hall. As they turned down the hall, she saw the girl again. What the hell...? she thought. Am I going nuts...?

"Raaah!"

The wall in front of them suddenly gave way as two burly college jocks charged through it. In a trice, one of them grabbed Horatio and hefted him up, one-handed. "You lot seem in an awful hurry," he said. "I don't remember seeing you before."

"Dude," the other said in a low voice near the first's ear, "look at the sweet ass with them...!"

The first looked Tam over and apparently liked what he saw. Horatio struggled against the boy holding him, choking for air. He was promptly thrown into a wall, denting it. He groaned on the ground.

"We don't like prankster party crashers..."

Tam shook nervously, the air around all of them growing colder until her breath was visible. Frost built around her feet and spread out and the sprinklers suddenly stopped as the water turned to ice above them. What do I do?! What do I do?!

She looked to Horatio, who was slowly trying to rise, then to the ice around them, at her feet, and back to Horatio. She trembled with fear and took a step or two back, her mind blank with panic. What's happening...?!

[ATTN: Tam, Horatio, These Dorks]

Terry jumped and turned as he heard the wall collapse. Two burly guys stood before them, one of them grabbing Horatio. He cringed as he felt that feeling again - that feeling from outside with Jill, like someone had thrown a wrench in the works of the Collective.

Ooooh no. He wished he was a decent fighter, but from the way they were grabbing Horatio he didn't think he'd stand a fighting chance. Tam was panicking as well, he could feel it, and he kept his eyes on them as he moved between her and the two men. Was it colder here all of a sudden? "Listen, hey, dude, it's just a party! Relax!" he said, holding out his hands placatingly and trying to get at his mind. But it was a wall - a horrible, wrong wall.

[ATTN: Jericho]

Whoa! The helicopter open fired on the two, and one of them seemed to vanish, moving impossibly quickly. Lightweight hung back, crouching low on a rooftop as one of the men fell dead. That one that vanished might have been a little superpowered - but whether he was good or bad? She wasn't sure and wasn't exactly keen on getting shot for him - yet.

[Attn: Tam, Terry]

"Here you go, assholes!"

Horatio suddenly stood up and wires shot out from the taser in his right hand. It hit the one who'd had him by the throat, and he fell to the ground, suddenly convulsing. The other guy growled and charged for Horatio, who was slammed into the wall, the jock's arm barred against his throat.

"Not...again...!" Horatio choked out. His left hand rose--and pepper spray shot into the jock's eyes. The jock screamed, clutching at his eyes and releasing Horatio, who coughed, but immediately brought his shoe up between the man's legs, dropping him.

"Mystery!"

Down the end of the hall, where once she had been trying to ward them away, the girl now was beckoning to them with one hand while pointing onward with the other with urgency. She looked behind them with worry.


[Attn: Lightweight]

Jericho blinked as suddenly something metallic dropped from the sky from the chopper. In the next instance a series of explosions rocked the man's body that had been shot. The chopper immediately darted into the air and away. Jericho didn't need to go near the mess of flames to know there was next to nothing left of that body.

"Alisha..."

He Moved, crossing across the block, then Moved again, and kept doing so until he was back at the hospital. It only had taken moments. He stepped in and there was Alisha at the window in her wheelchair. Her eyes were puffy.

"Thank God you're okay!" she exclaimed. "I'm so sorry. I shouldn't have..."

"No..." Jericho agreed, "you really shouldn't have. But it's okay. Nobody got hurt. This time."

"Dumbass," she said. "You did. You're bleeding. I'm sorry."

Jericho took inventory. The bullets had punctured his skin, but not gone in very deep. Thank God for that... They hurt like hell, though.

[ATTN: Tam, Horatio]

Terry nodded at the ghost. "Okay, now would be a good - oh. Wow," he said as he turned to look at Tam. He sounded at most only mildly surprised at the frost on the floor around her, and he looked up to see the sprinklers had frozen. That was what that chill was.

He could feel her panicking, and he reached out one hand to grab hers. It was ice cold, but he didn't flinch. Visibly. "Now is when we bail," he said. "Come on." He looked at Horatio and gestured at him as he hit the guy in the nuts, and started trying to lead Tam quickly after the ghost girl.

[ATTN: Open]

The chopper bombed the roof, and Lightweight grimaced against the explosion. When the chopper left and the smoke cleared, there was no one there. Huh. She didn't think the super guy was dead - but she'd keep an eye out for him now.

[ATTN: Terry, Horatio]

Tam is frozen--not literally, but she can barely concentrate. Confusion swirls about in her mind. She can tell the cold is coming from her, but how and why and what the hell is she going to do about it? She's terrified, and for the first time, it is of herself.

Terry grabs at her and tugs, urging her to move and get out of the room. She nods her head as she is pulled, but she's only slightly there. Part of her is so scared as she watches where he is touching her, but he doesn't get hurt like she was afraid he would. Relief washes over her until she realizes they are following the creepy girl that Horatio couldn't see.

[Attn: Omniman]

Sirens were heard in the distance. One of the men put a hand to their helmet and nodded. "It's done! Let's move!"

He pulled out a small ball from his belt and tossed it into the air. A hideous sonic blast began emitting from it, causing all the glass in a 20 ft radius to shatter and people in the blast zone to fall over unconscious. Omniman's ears would start bleeding. A bright flash would emit, and when it vanished, the bikers would be gone as if they never were.


[Attn: Tam, Terry]

Horatio didn't need telling twice. He began running after them, following and looking over his shoulder as he heard angry voices around the corner. "Damn! These bastards sure are touchy!"

"Mystery!" the girl beckoned urgently.

Around the corner lie a set of stairs leading back downstairs and to an emergency exit. As the barreled through, they wound up back outside and ahead lie the campus courtyard. In the distance, fire truck sirens could be heard and a gathering crowd of students were forming.

"C'mon!" Horatio said, charging into the crowd.

Sculpted stone picnic tables and benches littered the area and a huge television screen on one end. Across the way was the back of the library. A glowing sign was advertising books in an effort to entice the modern generation to read. Books. An adventure that never stops. Fantasy. Action. Horror. Love. Mystery. Epic tales await inside. Horatio laughed.

"My google pad can do all of that without me going inside," Horatio said with a chuckle. "but thanks all the same." He looked back. "You kids okay? Damn. I wish we could report that to the police. Those guys were seriously hyped up on something.


[Attn: Brianna]

A phone call came in on her blue tooth. "Bri," it said. "Are you okay? The news said buildings were under attack where you headed, da? Was your mission successful?"


[Attn: Lightweight]

An old man stood in front of an old worn down building, staring off into space. A group of kids slowly inched toward him menacingly.

[Attn: Phone Call]

Garbage and puddles of water lined the alleyway. All noises of the city she ignored; she kept her mind on what turn to take next. Normally, she would have just taken someone’s vehicle to get away, but with the accident on the way down, the last thing she needed was to be noticeable. Being on foot made it easier for her to avoid contact with others.

Brianna answered the incoming call. She wasn’t surprised that she was being contacted. The estimated time that she had allotted for this mission was already passed. “I’m fine. A few issues arose, but I dealt with it.” A few was an understatement on her part; this mission was botched up from the get-go.

“I have the information needed. Currently I’m on foot, staying out of the mayhem...” She paused for a moment. “How bad is it everywhere else in the city?” She had to make sure that she didn’t leave one disaster and walk into another.

[ATTN: Tam, Horatio]

They finally burst out of the building, and Terry looked back as they made it out, seeing the ghost watching them solemnly. The crowd blocked their view, but when the crowd parted again she was gone.

"Yah, really," he said to Horatio. He was still holding Tam's hand - she was ice cold. He looked over at her to see her eyes glowing orange.

She was terrified, he could feel it, so he kept holding onto her hand. "We should probably bail," he said.

[ATTN: Old guy]

One of the kids was grabbed by the back collar of his shirt. "It's past curfew kids," Lightweight said. "Scram."

[ATTN: Horatio, Terry]

They have made their brief exit, but Tam is still in panic mode. As they make their way outside of the building, Terry says something about bailing and she cannot think of what she is supposed to do or where she is supposed to go. Her mind is rambling as she breathes heavily from the escape, clasping tight to Terry with the fear of letting go.

The frost at her feet spreads out, once more, covering over the ground as she looks down with wide eyes. A single tear falls down her cheek, freezing in mid-fall upon her face as she looks at Horatio and Terry with the utmost terror. The frost begins to spread at an alarming rate.

"I--I'm going to hurt someone!" Tam says desperately as she tries not to weep, "What's wrong with me?!"

[Attn: Lightweight]

"Hey, bitch, mind your own business!" one of them growled coming for her with a knife.


[Attn: Tam, Terry]

"Tam, what are you--holy shit!" Horatio exclaimed as he got a full on view of what was going on with her. He looked around, people starting to notice the sudden chill and pulled off his wet suit jacket, throwing it over her head and beginning to steer her away from the area before people could connect the two.

"Don't worry," he said comfortingly, looking around, "we'll figure this out. You," he growled at Terry giving him a sharp look, "not one word of this to anyone."


[Attn: Brianna]

"Odd night," the voice replied. "Seemed crime was--Styx says it was like crime went on a "crack fueled acid trip." Colorful. She says you should hurry back so that she can snuggle you. Do you need a ride?"

Terry followed after as Horatio took Tam from him, throwing his jacket over her head to hide her face. He could already see the jacket starting to harden and freeze.

"Of course not," he said to Horatio, and in a moment of suspicion he focused in on his thoughts. Is she a super? Shit, how am I gonna keep her protected NOW? Fuck she's cold, my hands are gonna break off...

He relaxed. He had the best of intentions.

[ATTN: Old guy and these kids]

Lightweight held out one gloved hand, drawing energy from the kid and watching as he stumbled with sudden exhaustion. Her fist began to glow gold. "I said. Scram."

[Attn: Phone Call]

Brianna walked out of the alleyway and hit one of the main roads. “Convenient that it all happened tonight...” It almost felt as though the chaos was subsiding at this point; then again, she had begun to tune it out.

She rolled her eyes at Styx’s concern. “Only snuggling? I almost feel offended.” Brianna replied dryly. “I’m currently on 59th Street. However, it’s not necessary to come and get me. I should be able to steal a car and get out of here if needed.” Her mind was already thinking of what the best approach would be.

Sirens were heard in the distance. One of the men put a hand to their helmet and nodded. "It's done! Let's move!"

He pulled out a small ball from his belt and tossed it into the air. A hideous sonic blast began emitting from it, causing all the glass in a 20 ft radius to shatter and people in the blast zone to fall over unconscious. Omniman's ears would start bleeding. A bright flash would emit, and when it vanished, the bikers would be gone as if they never were.

Omniman shakes off the brief stunning as the flash goes away. The officers inbound swerve on instinct, but he dashes across the street in a red and white blur, managing to gently stop the vehicle before it crashes into a nearby storefront. "Officers," he says with an affirming nod. Then he turns his head and floats up over the streets, trying to get a feed on his surroundings. All pedestrians were evacuated. No one registers to his senses as being injured, but the damage to the area was quite a number. Worse is the fact that the culprits are nowhere in sight. "Well, that's inconvenient," he says, folding his arms. "What I wouldn't give to be able to sense Evil too...note to self, see if that's among your powers. Heaven knows I've found out about other things I could do, long after I'd have liked." Then he hovers back down to speak with the officers and help with clean-up.

[Attn: Open]

The doctors had been kind enough to patch him up. While only a few of the bullets had managed to break his skin, they had managed to do some serious bruising. It hurt to move. Lucky for him, those commando wannabes had cut the feed to the security cameras. Just a few nurses and patients--most who'd been cowering and too busy to notice.

Alisha had clung to him for a while before he could free himself. She had been more shaken up by him getting hurt than the entire ordeal. That was Alisha for you. She'd come from a rough home. In fact, he had the sneaking suspicion that was why she was so soft on Becca.

For him, the event had been...surprising. He had expected to take them down with almost no effort, but they'd matched him in speed and strength. Well, not when he Moved. Small favors. He still had no intention of being a super, but he felt annoyed by being matched by a bunch of douchebags hopped up on something. His martial spirit, perhaps? Or his ego. The music playing as he walked down the street seemed to match his mood.

"Waitaminute." He stopped. "Who's playing?" He looked around but couldn't seem to locate the source. He was sure it was a string instrument like a violin or a cello. He looked around to be sure no one was looking and leapt to the rooftop of a nearby building about four stories up, grimacing as he landed. May want to lay off the super leaps. He looked around, but could still see no one, but the music still played.

He leapt back down and grunted as the shock went through him. That sucked. He shrugged. Who cared? He continued walking back toward his home.


From a skyscraper above, a woman played a violin. She was cast in shadow against the moonlight behind her, but her slitted skirt flitted in the wind as she continued to play. Far below she saw the injured young man walking home and smiled.


[Attn: Lightweight]

"Holy shit, what is she?!"

"Let's get outta here!"

They all scattered in every direction while the boy she'd drained stumbled away, leaning against a wall, scared at his sudden exhaustion. He stumbled over a trash can, making a loud crashing noise, forced himself to his feet, and kept going.

The old man started as he heard the crash, looking around. He saw Lightweight and blinked surprise for a moment. "This part of town's gone to the dogs," he said sadly. "If you're gonna rob me, just get it over with."


[Attn: Tam, Terry]

Horatio wrapped an arm around Tam, saying in a consoling voice, "It'll be okay Tam. Calm down. Those assholes are gone, nobody's hurt. You're with friends. Shhh..." He rubbed her back comfortingly, but had to remove it and stick it in his pants pocket and rub it against his leg to warm it back up. His coat had long since turned to ice, but they were out of the public eye, now, so he was less worried about it.

"We're almost to my car," he said, "we'll get you to my place and...and we'll just play it by ear." 'Don't worry,' I told them. 'She'll be fine,' I said. Shit. 'Fine' just got curb stomped and pissed on...


[Attn: Brianna]

"Are you sure this is wise?" the voice questioned uncertainly. "You don't want to leave to large a trail, ponyat? But it is your discretion. You always were reckless girl. Get home soon." There was a pause. "Oh, and Styx says you couldn't handle anything more than her snuggling.

[ATTN: Old man]

Lightweight raised her hands. "No, sir, the boys who were gonna do that just ran off," she said. "Pretty zoned out, were you?"

[ATTN: Horatio, Tam]

Terry frowned as he overheard Horatio's thoughts. Of course she's going to be fine. Her powers weren't the death of her - well, no, he shouldn't get insulted. He wasn't sure what he meant by that anyway - certainly Tam seemed not fine right now. It might not him being a prejudiced dick.

"Let me come with you," Terry said to Horatio as they approached his car. "I can help."

[Attn: Phone Call]

A smile appeared on Brianna’s lips. “When have I been wrong? I always make it work.” She looked around to make sure that she would be able to accomplish this with little notice. Not too far away was an older vehicle that would be easy enough to get into.

“Hold on.” She placed her call on hold and rushed to the small, old car. Not the most glamorous of vehicles but it would work. After successfully breaking into the car and then hotwiring it, she pulled her phone back out of her pocket. “Done. I’m on my way so assume 20 minutes. Tell Styx, to make a pot of coffee. I will need some.” Brianna pulled out and began her drive to meet up with the others.

[Attn: Open]

The debacle in downtown made the evening news. It was the first "true act of blatant violence" the city had ever seen. Many in the less affluent parts of town collectively rolled their eyes, though said a prayer all the same. After all, if it was getting blatant enough that the upper crust was noticing, then how much worse was it about to get in the poorer parts?

The casualty list was surprisingly small. Many had been injured by the egregious rain of destruction, but only a handful had died in the attack. The mayor held an emergency press conference, with both him and the sheriff assuring that justice would be served to these monsters who would do such "evil" acts.


[Attn: Brianna]

When Brianna had made it back, she'd come in on the tail end of the news report. A tall girl of Russian descent with long, dark hair tied in a high ponytail. She wore comfy sweats and fuzzy slippers. She turned her green, hazel rimmed eyes to the door as Brianna walked in.

"Such мусор," she said in a deeper feminine voice. "I see you managed to not be casualty in...silly display in downtown."

"Don't worry, girlfriend," came a masculine voice, "I got what you need.

A really pretty young man in makeup wearing overalls with one of the straps off brought a cup of coffee. "My own secret recipe, though you know I'd recommend tea more." His eyes were a golden hazel with flecks of blue and green in them with shoulder length dark hair with red and pink highlights. His manicured hands had a little oil on them--he'd been working on materials again.

[Attn: Lightweight]

The old man regarded her for a moment. "Ah," he said, "one of these caped kids running around. In my day, we dreamed of it, but now yours gets to live it." He turned back to the building. "This once was a bustling place. Some of the best talent you'd ever hope to see has come out of this place. Dancers, jazz musicians, big names. Got their start here. Dreams were made, lost, found again...some never recovered." A hint of sadness crossed his pale eyes as he looked upon the place.


[Attn: Tam, Terry]

Horatio gave the boy a long look. "Brownie points," he said. "Fine. Hop in. Maybe we can make sense of what the hell just happened. C'mon, Tam..." he said in a soothing voice, moving her slowly sobbing body into the car. He got in the limo after her, beckoning Terry after.

"Jim? Something hot for everyone. Slip something strong in each of them. It's been a helluva night."


[Attn: Thomas]

Thomas would get a knock on the door. A man in a trench coat and hat was standing there. "I'm a friend of Gruda's and an occasional acquaintance of Marvin. Hope you might have a minute?"

[Attn: Press Conference]

Omniman hovers over the gathering, watching the speech given. His arms are crossed and his red cape flows behind him as he observes. "Justice" was a strong word to just go throwing around. It raised people's expectations. Then there's the fact that everyone has their own different definitions of it. Some would be content with the crooks serving jail time. Others are going to demand blood for this. Question is: what am I supposed to do about it? He sighs. "Guess I never was big on philosophy. It's never going to get easy, is it?"

His old man's voice plays back in his mind. "Son, the world is a big, frightening, complicated place sometimes..."

"But it doesn't have to be," Omniman says to himself. Then he flies off.

[ATTN: Old man]

Lightweight shoved her hands in the pockets of her hoodie as he spoke. "Were you one of them?" she asked, seeing the look on his face.

[ATTN: Horatio, Tam]

Terry's eyes widened as he saw the limo - he forgot, this was Ivy League. Without a word he followed the two into the limo, both their thoughts racing through his head. Their anxiety was more than enough to make him tense as well, and he stayed silent during their ride.
