I faintly heard Prunia calling to me, still shaking me the same she had before. I cracked my eyes and met her still frigid gaze. She looked genuinely concerned. I opened my eyes more, trying to get used to the now dusk sky. I turned my head slightly and saw two new faces.
One was a man that didn’t look like he should know these two. He was wearing a skintight outfit. It was a blue and silver outfit, all in one. Unlike the past outfits the other “heroes” had, he was lacking in the armor department. He had no armor what so ever. He had an average athletic build. Nothing too special there. I was quite curious to know his power.
The other was a hooded woman. She was wearing a dark grey outfit. Her first layer was a skintight outfit. It was accented with a dark red, complementing the dark grey. Her lower were tight pants with pockets, similar to cargo pants. The pockets, however, were quite hidden. You would hardly see them unless you were close. Or had night vision still on like my mask had.
On her outer part of her outfit, she was wearing a hood, blocking all light from getting her nose and up. She had strips of cloth on her forearms and thighs, as well as a scarf she had on. On her belt, I saw knives and other utilities. I could sense great power in her though; I wondered why she needed knives. She was quite similar to my outfit though.
She had armor plating on her arms, wrist to her elbows. As well as armor plating on here calves.
“Hey. You’re awake. Are you alright,” Prunia asked, interrupting my scan of these unknown people
“Yea I’m fine. Thanks,” I answered getting up. I tried hard to make sure I didn’t lose my balance.
“I guess I just fainted. I pushed my body too hard. Especially after that weird focus move I did. Who are these two people,” I asked pointing to the newcomers.
“This is the rest of my team. This is Quake,” she said pointing at the man, “and this is Umbra,” pointing to the hooded woman.
“Sorry we were late. We were dealing with another problem in the city when the explosion happened. We had to split,” Quake explained. He was quite sophisticated. I was assuming he was the muscle of the group, hence the name and lack of armor. He could be the brains as well based on the way he talked.
“It’s fine. You had a job to do, I should’ve been able to do mine without getting anyone else involved,” though I knew that wasn’t going to happen. General Warren was too persistent for that.
“Crap. Warren. Where the hell is he?” I thought in a minor panic. I looked quickly and saw that he was still knocked out from my blow. “God. What was that move?”
“What are you going to about him,” I said, pointing at Warren.
“We were going to throw him in jail. That’s usually what we do. But he was trying to kill you. You can do what you want to him,” Prunia said.
I looked at Warren, being reminded of the torture the company he works for did to me. Everything they did to me was the only reason I was here right now, the only reason I was who I am today. I still try to shut people out of my life. At that time, I realized that I almost told Prunia my past. I’m sorta glad I passed out; I didn’t want to tell her anything.
“I’ll take care of him privately,” I said darkly. I picked him up and started to walk away.
Prunia looked at me. Her mouth was agape, insinuating she was going to say something, but she thought against it.
Part Two Is Below!
