"You shouldn't have done that..." Claudia mumbles as we walk down the halls as a group.
"Done what?" I ask, grinning.
"You teased him after he was already hurting!"
"It's just some special shampoo that he got in his eyes..."
"Those chemicals could be toxic!"
"He'll be fiiinne. If it really was that bad then the doctor could just throw him in that machine or something."
"And curse him with another power?"
"Pfftt." I snort. "More like bless."
"George, we know next to nothing about our new abilties. Until we've spent more time adjusting with them, I wouldn't call them a blessing." The wolf-kid Bliez finally said something.
"So they're a 'curse'?" I say the last word mockingly.
"Like I said, we'll have to see..." He said. "We should probably go to sleep."
"Sleep? We just woke up; I'm wide awake!" I exclaimed.
"We're in a hospital, there's not really a whole lot we can do." Cloud, the my little pony girl, points out.
"Ohhh, there's plenty to do. You just have to get creative..." I take a step towards the double doors at the end of the hallway, but a foot sticks out and I trip and fall on my face.
"What was that for?" I ask, jumping back up, looking around to see who did that.
"We can't just go out there, remember? Did you even listen to the doc?" Bliez asks, sounding a bit annoyed.
"You're not my dad!" I say in a higher pitched voice, mimicking the kid from that one vine. Snickering a bit, I add, "And neither are you. Seriously, he didn't even tell us his name!"
"Whoever he is, he's going to be mad at us if we don't listen to him." Hyung-jewe finally says something, sounding worried.
"You guys are laaaame." I sigh.
There was no point in messing with people outside of the double doors all by myself.
"Fiiiinee, I'll go to beeed." And then I unintentionally sped off towards my room and flopped onto my bed.
It took me a while, but I eventually fell asleep. I hoped tomorrow would be more interesting...
Knock knock knock!
"Huh?" I mumbled, rubbing my eyes.
Oh, the doctor guy.
I stretch, and then zoom over to the door, barely stopping in time. Oh, right, I have super speed now. I open it.
"What's up?" I ask, yawning.
"Get dressed and meet me and the others in the hall." He answered, holding out my clothes from yesterday.
"Oh, I was hoping to get out of my dress!" I reply, swiping the clothes from him and shutting the door.
I quickly get changed. I frown, noticing that there's some faint blood stains on it. Oh well, it'll look like I just came from some action movie. Yeah, I'll rock it. And with that, I threw open the door, stepped out into the hallway...
And the doctor guy had just finished telling someone at the end of the hall to get ready. I groan. I don't want to wait... hopefully he explains who he is, because if not, well, that's gonna be pretty sketchy...
The others come one by one painfully slow, Cloud the my little pony girl, Bleiz was wearing sunglasses and a hat to hide his wolf parts, Hyung-jewe the weirdo, and then Gabriel, whose wings were tucked into his shirt, and finally Claudia.
"Took you long enough." I grumble.
"I'm sorry." She said, looking at the ground.
"It's quite all right. Come on, let's go to the cafeteria. I'll get you all some food." Finallllly.
I struggled to not rush ahead, nearly running into a wall at one part. I discovered I had to walk incredibly slow, or at least to me, it was incredibly slow, but after noticing everyone else's walking, it seemed normal.
We got to the cafeteria, and it was strangely empty. However, there was food, so I didn't really care. I got some scrambled eggs and bacon and milk and some grapes for breakfast and plopped down at a seat around a circular table and started digging in right away. It was good, for cafeteria food.
"All the doctors are out tending to their morning shifts of giving out medications. We’ll have this place to ourselves for a little while." The doctor dude said. "Anyways not to ruin you breakfasts but it is high time we discussed your future. Last night I made a call to the president of the USA."
I nearly spit out my milk.
"You have the president's phone number?" I exclaimed. Geez, who is this guy?!
"You can call the president so easily?" Cloud said, voicing my thoughts, even though she had my little pony hair.
"Trust me, no one can contact John easily." He grumbled, sipping his coffee. John? You don't just call President Fouley, John!
"You speak about him so informally."
"Well I should be able to; I am his older brother after all." I gape at him.
"Wait, brother? You're Richard Fouley, aren't you?" Cloud asked.
"I suppose I never did introduce myself. I apologize, yes my name is Richard Fouley and my younger brother is Jonathan Fouley, the president. Anyways more importantly we discussed what to do about your condition." Awww, come on, I wanna hear more about the president! I can't believe it! I'm sitting next to the president's brother! I can't wait to tell the squad!
"My brother wishes to hire all of you. He wants you to move to a mansion that he will pay for; this would become your home base. From there you'd work as an elite team of super heroes. The government would cover all expenses and give you anything that you could possibly want. You'll have your own tutors and he'll put all the luxuries you could want in your home in the mansion all well as safety features for your protection. All he asks is that when you work to help people by using your abilities that you conceal your identities for your own safety. No one can know your names, or ages, or where you're are from, and most importantly how you got these abilities. The wrong people knowing these things could cause uproar and be potentially very dangerous for all of you. No one can know, not even your families. My brother is setting up the final details but in a few weeks' time you'll receive a letter for a boarding school, he'll set it up and make it look official so your parents won't find out it doesn't exist. Then right before the school year starts, there will be a bus that we will all meet at. It will take you to your new home. You'll be able to go home on vacation and such but mostly the mansion will become your new home. We will however not force you to go, though we strongly encourage it. We want to protect all of you, and make sure you are in a safe environment where you don't have to hide your new abilities. So, will you all accept?"
I stare at him for a moment. Is this real? I could live in a mansion and become a superhero?! That's so cool! That's even cooler than becoming a basketball star! I get to live in a mansion that I didn't even work for! This is great! And I'll get to be a superhero and everyone will know my name! I'll have fans and everyone will love me for being great! The only downside is that I can't show off my powers to my family... and my friends... that'd kinda suck. But then maybe my superhero persona could specifically visit that region a couple of times, show off for the locals...
I was broken out of my thoughts when Claudia said, "I'll do it."
Her? A 4th grader? Being a superhero? Well if she has the powers...
"Well duh, of course I'm gonna do it. Who wouldn't want to live in a mansion and be a superhero?" I grin. "This is gonna be lit my dudes!"
Please go through!
I had that entire conversation written before I saw Cassy's POV, and I think it fits and all so I'm just gonna leave it in. I did my best to make it realistic... Claudia not liking George because he's George. I figured Bliez was probably getting annoyed at George, especially hearing his annoying voice louder than normal, so I think that's why he stepped in and actually talked... and I can see him as the voice of reason. And as for Cloud and Hyanjoo, I figured that Cloud noticed she was crying earlier and maybe comforted her earlier and was like helping her calm down or something? I want to give Hyanjoo a hug, but George is no where close to even consider that soooo that's that.
Cloud is my little pony girl now because I realized her hair wasn't rainbow, it was actually pink and purple.
And George like lists the orders in which people come and how he's just standing there, if that interferes with your POV, don't worry about it, it could just be the order in which he describes them, I just did my best guess as to who would come when.
God Loves You All!
