When Simon woke up he found himself handcuffed in a police car. No, this wasn’t a police car, he knew that. But why was he handcuffed? Eventually he was shoved off the car and he found himself in what he assumed was a military airfield. He was put inside a small jet, the air smelled funny, it smelled like fruits, and… He drifted off.
Late at night, Bo sat on the front porch watching in tears as Mei and Liu were shoved inside a black van, they would be taken to the newly established laboratories in their neighbor country, Japan, researching the mineral spilling in the Pacific Ocean. The authorities had said that they would be sent to the laboratory because they theorized their powers had emerged from drinking the mineral spillage. But they had never said when they would be returned, and much less if they would ever be seen again.
“I’m… I’m sorry, I don’t want to hurt you!” She waved her hands in the air and sent a beam of pink acid straight at the top of the wall making another smoldering hole. The children screamed in horror as Mei nearly killed them. Another teacher who had heard the screaming ran towards the burnt door and opened it frantically. She ran mortified to a bathroom and locked it, where she sat crying for what she felt were hours.
I landed on its roof, I could hear them discussing something about meeting up with the other side. I knew it. They were all facing the opposite direction of where I stood so I made a hole on the roof and slipped in quietly. Lets have some fun. I ripped off one of the passenger chairs and launched it at them with all my strength. Surprisingly, Suleos caught it mid-air. I was turning to get another chair when a fire beam nearly scorched my face.
“Kloza what’s wrong with you?” I shout.
“What? We’ve taken too long, if we’re doing something we should do it now.” She angrily replied.
“Listen, if they team up and go all out, I don’t know if we can win.”
“But… Look, they’re broken and split up-”
“And they’re pissed off too. In fact now, I fear they will be more strongly attracted to getting back up.”
As the invisible ship hovered above, the other half of the team came down from the sky. As Shox and Tennum walked out of our safe house we stood together anticipating the tension. Zomborn, Kloza, and Suleos calmly walk at us and I raise my arm to my quiver.
He still remembered the day he had killed his family twenty years ago. It had been the day that started his transformation. Three years ago he had finished transforming but was almost instantly captured by the Divinity Team and sent to a prison in Canada. But today had been the day. He had been planning his escape for so long, and he had succeeded. As he roared in anger standing on the ruins of the prison he heard something.
Hellius was the only one that had tried to save me, he was the only one that cared about me. I couldn’t believe that Xeph didn’t just break in to get me… It was that Nixus bitch! She was the one that called the laboratories to come pick me up, so they would torture me and experiment on me. And the whole team acted like it had been a raid, when it wasn’t, and now they deserved what they were getting from us, and much more.
We walked to the corner of the building. I lifted some rubble and opened a trapdoor. We went down a ladder and stopped at the bottom. This place… I could sense Kloza was getting agitated just by being here. This dreadful place. I flicked the lightswitch and the room illuminated, barely. It was left the same way they had left in that very night. The night Kloza died. The camera monitoring her was still there, the bed where they held her was still there. I could now see a trace of blood backing against the corner, where Kloza had seen no escape and was captured by Xeph. So Kloza wasn’t killed, but was left here to bleed out in pain. The only one that could’ve helped her, trapped away. I remember that night I had woken up in a dark void. A spell cast by Viridi, I couldn’t see or feel anything, but I could hear everything. An endless void. A spell I had learned to resist, afterwards. I remember hearing screams coming from down here, and suddenly they stopped. By the time I was released from the spell Kloza was gone. And I had never dared see what had really happened.
I lifted her from the ground slowly closing my grip, I didn’t intend killing her now, that would be less fun. Make them suffer a bit before. A giant lightning bolt hit me in the back, catching me off guard. It stung a bit but I recovered quickly. A fire beam hit me in the face now, shit, I had let Nixus loose. She would be annoying. I kept regenerating my face as she burned it but I was actually getting angry now. A cold blast hit my legs and they were frozen. Green light flashed in front of me and I felt a deep cut in my belly. You think you can contain me… Yeah totally. A shrill roar came out of my mouth, I broke the ice and punched the green lights flashing in front of me, I heard a loud crack, and saw Suleos lying unconscious on the airfield.
