Legio: Part 3

“Red Legacy?” Marcus said. “Are you trying to remind people of Red Lightning? Or was that accidental?”

Red Legacy chuckled. “I was going to remind people of Red Lightning one way or the other.”

He held his hands apart in front of him, facing each other. Electricity crackled between them. It was colored red.

“Oh wow, you’re doomed.”

Decisions: Part 9

Mr. Drucker didn’t look satisfied by Vaughn’s uncle’s reply, but he didn’t keep on arguing either.

I couldn’t tell whether it came from the table or from someone outside the roachbot’s view, but someone asked, “What about the Heroes League?”

Decisions: Part 8

I barely got to wonder what the yellow light meant before the phone in my suit rang. The helmet’s readout showed it as being from HQ.

It felt good.

After a week that included being chased, attacked in my own bed, and ending a second prom night in violence, Guitar Hero and Tony Hawk seemed like a simple, relaxing way to finish off the week. It was made more relaxing by sending Isaac Lim an email about the original Power’s death instead of calling him.

Rivalry: Part 16

“You’re going to fucking kill him,” Chris said.

“I was going to be careful. I wasn’t going to hit him against the ground as hard.”

“That’s insane.”

Sean descended from the black sky, landing in front of us. He turned his head to look at Jack floating above the street.

“Do you know how many people that guy killed? I was going to make sure he couldn’t do anything.”
