Hello MB! I thought of this story idea and wanted to write it! I'm collaborating with an MBer you might know on here as Sarah or Agentclue77 (we know eachother in real life).

 

Chapter 1
Nick Delray
 

 

 

 

California, 4:06pm

 

“Nicky, c’mon!” My twin sister Melanie screamed.

 

I should probably tell you what happened before this moment.

 

I was just an average twelve-year-old kid. I ate, I slept, I pooped, I went to stupid middle school, I did homework, I fought with my twin sister, I tried—but failed—to talk to pretty girls end of story.

 

Until today.

 

I was just doing my homework when Melanie called that.

 

“What is it?” I called back to her. That’s when I smelled it. Smoke. “Did you try to cook dinner again? I told you that we’ll just order Chinese food!” I ran downstairs.

 

I saw her at the bottom of the stairs, a fearful look in her eyes she was holding out a wet towel to me. Her long ginger hair—the color was a perfect match for mine—covering part of her face. She had something clutched in her other hand, a picture of Mom and Dad.

 

I know what you’re thinking: Aww, those poor kids parents died. Nah. They just went on a business trip in Colorado.

 

There was a huge flame behind her. That’s what smelled.

 

I took the towel from her hand, “Go!”

 

“What?” She asked, shaking her head, “I’m not leaving you!”

 

“I need to get something!”

 

She ran out the door. I ran into the kitchen and a flaming ceiling beam fell on top of my leg.

 

I screamed in agony. My leg hurt so bad. My vision started to cloud. And then, something bizarre happened. My leg didn’t hurt anymore.

 

I started catching fire. You know how the pain of being burned alive is supposed to be excruciating? It was the complete opposite of that. It was no more than a tingle.

 

I managed to crawl out from underneath the beam and half ran/half limped outside, looking for Melanie.

 

But she was gone.

What if he is secretly Leo Valdez O_O

 

Chapter 2
Tory McClain
 

 

 

 

New York, 7:06 p.m.

 

I stared out the apartment window, rain drops poured down outside.

 

I was playing that game called “Let’s-Watch-Two Rain-Drops-Drip-Down-the-Window-and-See-Which-One-Wins”. Meanwhile, my two-year-old brother, Oliver, was crying.

 

He had been crying all afternoon. I had tried everything. Lullabies, feeding him, changing his diaper (which was not pleasant), stories, I even tried putting on a puppet show. Nothing worked.

 

“Just shut up already.” I muttered under my breath.

 

You’re probably wondering why my mom isn’t coming to calm him down. It’s because both of my parents were in Hawaii for their 18th anniversary.

 

Yeah, I know what you’re thinking: What kind of parents leaves a twelve-year-old and a two-year-old alone?

 

The truth was they left us home alone all the time.

 

Oliver cried louder, stuck his tongue out at me, and then said, “Towy’s a butt.” (He pronounces R’s and L’s like a W)

 

That probably meant that I muttered louder than I had thought.

 

“Okay, Ollie.” I picked him up, “What do you want to do?”

 

“Pway outside.”

 

“I’m sorry, buddy. You can’t play outside.” I reasoned, which only made him start crying even more.

 

The rain pounded even harder, leaking through the roof (we live on the top floor of a six story building). I ran into the kitchen, grabbing pots, bowls, and cups for the rain drops to fall into.

 

By this point, Oliver had stopped crying and I set him down to sleep. I flopped down on my bed (we share a room) and turned on the T.V. I flipped to Cartoon Network to watch my favorite show, Total Drama.

 

Half-way through the theme song (I Wanna Be Famous), I found our tile floors wet, and all the stuff I had put around the apartment overflowing.

 

“That’s weird.” I mumbled. “I just set them out a few minutes ago.”

 

By this point, I was up to my ankles in water. I picked Oliver up, wrapped him in his blanket and put him in the elevator. I turned around, frantically looking for a picture of my mom and dad.

 

The door to the elevator shut, and Oliver was whizzing down in the elevator. I was practically swimming through my apartment at this point, up to my neck in water.

 

I found the picture on the wall, but the water was rising faster by the minute. I held my breath as the water rose over my head.

 

After a while, I really needed oxygen but it was no use. My vision started to darken around the edges. The oxygen deprivation was getting to me now. Then, just as my lungs were about to explode, I tried to breathe (I knew it was a long shot but it was my only hope).

 

I could actually breathe.

Chapter 3
Angus Huggins
 

 

 

 

Kansas, 6:06 p.m.

 

    “AAAAAAAANNNNNGGGGGUUUUUUSSSSS!!!” My fifteen-year-old sister, Abigail, called. “MOM WANTS YOU TO FEED THE CHICKENS!”

 

    “Okay, fine.” I called back.

 

I put my sweater and beanie on, grabbed the basket and headed outside. I reached into the basket and pulled out the corn niblets. They came over and started pecking it as soon as I threw them on the ground.

 

I heard my mom scream my name and tell me to get in the basement. She was probably watching that recorded tape (yes, she still uses tapes) from three years ago that said there was going to be a tornado.

 

    “It’s okay mom!” I yelled to her. “Just get in the basement and you’ll be fine!”

 

    That’s when I hear it, the all too familiar roaring of a tornado. It was really close too. I ran as fast as I could to the basement, but the chicken coop was too far from the field.

 

I always kind of wondered what it felt like to be in a tornado. Imagine being sucked by a huge vacuum bigger than your house, then spinning around the thing over and over again being hit by almost everything in there, with little pieces of debris getting everywhere. Your eyes, nose, hair, mouth.

     

    Please…stop… I think.

 

    Then, the weirdest thing happened that I almost thought it was a dream. Everything stopped spinning and calmly place me on the ground and the tornado died down.

 

    My first thought was: How?

Chapter 4
Iris Hathaway
 

 

 

 

Alaska, 3:06 p.m.

 

    “Hey, Iris!” My sixteen-year-old brother, Peter, called out to me. “Catch!”

 

    I jumped up and caught the Frisbee. My mom, dad, Peter, and I were having a picnic near the woods by our house.

 

    I threw the Frisbee but I missed, and it disappeared into the woods.

 

    Peter looked at the woods, then at me with a blank expression. “You know you’re going to have to go get right?”

 

    “Yeah…” I said, trudging into the thick, dark forest.

 

    It was kind of dark, but the sun cascading through the gaps in the foliage provided enough light to see.

 

    Suddenly, I heard what sounded like a tree falling. I couldn’t tell where it was coming from, so I stood there, helpless.

 

    I felt it land on me. I crumpled to the ground, the tree squishing me. It felt like my insides were being compressed. And then, I didn’t feel that terrible compressing feeling. I felt, well, normal. Like I was laying on my bed at home, the tree like a blanket. I tried sliding out, but my leg was stuck.

 

    Of course, I thought.

 

    The all too familiar roar of a black bear filled my head, and I saw it emerge.

 

    Please don’t hurt me, please don’t hurt me. I begged silently.

 

    The bear stared at me quizzically, and took some steps closer to me. It sniffed me then nudged the tree just enough so I can crawl out of it.

 

    I smiled, “Thanks, even though you probably can’t understand me.”

 

    It made a purring noise, which probably meant it was happy, and then left.

Chapter 5
Nick Delray
 

 

 

 

California 6:38 p.m.

 

I wandered the streets searching for Melanie. I searched for hours, but I found nothing. After dark, I decided to try and get back home to try and salvage anything I could.

 

    I needed a light so I tried to grab my phone out of my pocket. It wasn’t there. I had left it on my desk in my room. Suddenly, my hand caught fire. It was that same tingly feeling I got back during the fire.

 

    I shrugged, “Okay then.” And I started toward my house.

 

    About halfway to my house, I saw a girl who I identified as Melanie. She looked terrible. Her hair was damp and in her face. Her clothes were singed and ripped. She was on her phone trying to contact someone.

 

    She looked up and noticed my flaming hand. I guess she couldn’t see who it was because she screamed. “D-don’t hurt me.” Her voice was quivering.

 

    “No, Melanie, i-it’s me.”

 

    She shook her head and ran the opposite way.

 

    I finally got to my house and got down on my knees, sifting through the pile of ash. I managed to salvage one pair of clothes. I kept sifting and noticed an envelope.

 

    What?

 

    I ripped it open and found a first class ticket to the Caribbean.

 

    “Well,” I said to no one, “I guess I’m going to the Caribbean.”

Kansas 7:22 p.m.

 

    So, turns out, the tornado dropped me off near an airport. Maybe I could get some food in there. I walked inside and made my way over to the “store” to get myself a bag of Cheetos, some gummy bears, and a Sprite.

 

    I take out the 20 dollar bill I have stashed in a small compartment in my beanie, when I find another paper in there too. A first class ticket to the Caribbean? Shoot, I can’t even afford a coach ticket.

 

    I paid for my snacks and waited in the we’re-going-to-check-your-bags-to-make-sure-you-don’t-have-any-weapons-to-kill-people line.

 

    Apparently my suitcase was there. (I know freaky, right?) The one that said The Beanie Life. Finally it was time to board the plane, so I walked onto the platform and into the plane.

 

    I had never seen a first class section before. It was amazing. It was like having my own little compartment with a soft leather recliner, an HD TV, and a table with a table cloth.

 

    Before I knew it, we were off.

Chapter 7
Iris Hathaway
 

 

 

 

O’Hare Airport 9:22 p.m.

 

Somehow, the bear came back, brought me to the airport, and I am now in O’Hare airport changing planes to the Caribbean.

 

    When did my life get weird?

 

    I was waiting, looking at the people in the lines and I saw a boy with sandy blond hair, most of it obscured with a beanie. He was standing next to some dude with a shirt that said: I’m with stupid ->. The boy was completely unaware. I giggled.

 

    “Now boarding first class passengers to the Caribbean.” The PA system blared.

 

    I stood up and boarded the plane.

 

 

 

I couldn’t get used to the amazingness of first class.

 

    My only problem with it? I was stuck sitting next to that sandy blond haired kid with the gray eyes. He kept watching beanie parodies of movies. The beanie parody of Annie, for example.

 

    “It’s the beanie life for us!”

 

    I dozed off for I don’t know how long and woke up to:

 

    “Luke, I am your beanie father!”

 

    “For the love of beanies, put some headphone on!” I yelled.

 

    “Gosh, fine.” He took out some beanie shaped ear buds.

 

    I rolled my eyes, and then closed them again.

 

 

By the time I woke up again the rest of the passengers had already gotten off.

 

    The only people left were a girl with long chocolate brown hair and blue eyes, a boy with ginger hair and amber eyes, the kid sitting next to me, and myself.

 

    “Hey, what’s going on?” I asked them.

 

    “The pilot said we couldn’t get off.” The other girl replied.

 

    I felt the plane lifting off again. And then after a little while longer, I felt the plane descending, rapidly. We were heading straight for the water.

 

    And that’s when I realized that we were going to crash.

Chapter 8
Tory McClain
 

 

 

 

Rushing toward our doom, 10:25 p.m.

 

    We were going to crash.

 

And it didn’t help that one of the boys was screaming, “We’re gonna die! We’re gonna die! We’re gonna die! What’re we gonna do?”

 

The other girl looked at him, “Hopefully stop saying that we’re gonna die.”

 

“But we’re gonna die.” He insisted.

 

The turbulence got stronger and the plane bumped. I fell on top of the other boy. He had ginger hair and amber eyes.

 

We looked at each other and then I got off of him.

 

He cleared his throat, “I’m Nick.”

 

“Tory.” I said.

 

The plane bumped again. Okay, I was starting to get really scared. Not only for myself but also for Oliver. When I went down to go look for him he was gone and in the elevator was the first class plane ticket.

 

Now, I know what you’re going to say: Then why did you board the plane instead of looking for your two-year-old brother? That’s just selfish and cruel.

 

Well, I thought that maybe he could have something to do with the plane ticket. Okay, I also really wanted to check out first class…but hey, he could’ve also had something to do with it!

 

Plus, the police didn’t believe when I said: Yeah, my little brother got kidnapped and in his place was a first class ticket to the Caribbean. Oh! And did I mention I could breathe underwater?

 

I could now see the water clearly rushing up toward the plane. Suddenly an air bubble formed around us. I guess I did it, but I’m not sure how. I tried to keep it up as best I could, closing my eyes tight to concentrate and held my hands up, keeping the bubble around us.

 

Nick looked at me in awe, “How are you doing that?!”

 

I shook my head, “I don’t know!”

 

He grinned, “Well, whatever it is don’t stop!”

 

I continued trying for what seemed like forever. I felt like I might collapse right there. But I also didn’t want the others to die. Just as I felt myself start to collapse, all the water in the plane around the bubble started to drain.

 

I waited as much as I could for the water to drain at least to our ankles. Then, the bubble popped and I fell to the ground, the water splashing as I hit it. Nick helped me to my feet.

 

“Hey, guys check it out!” The other boy pointed out the window.

 

It looked like a facility.

 

The other girl looked at us, “Guys, where are we?”

Chapter 9
Angus Huggins
 

 

 

 

Facility in the middle of the ocean, 11:00 p.m.

 

    The pilot came in nice and dry save for his hair. “How’d you like the ride?”

 

    We all looked at him with wide eyes.

 

    The girl with the water force-field powers looked up, “What. Was. That?”

 

    The man opened the door and motioned for us to step out, “Would you like to see?”

 

    We all stepped out and into a facility.

 

    A man walked in. He kind of looked like a human version of Master Wu from Ninjago. “Hello, I am Master Bob.”

 

    I spoke up, “Uh, I thought it would be something cool like Master Wu, or Professor X, or Obi-Wan Kenobi, or something like that.”

 

    He turned on me, “It’s Bob!”

 

    I raised my hands up in mock surrender.

 

    He cleared his throat, “Now, follow me.”

 

    He led us into the training grounds. It had several large sparring mats; some were in an enclosed space. It had racks of weapons; bows and arrows, knives, spears, and even some I’ve never heard of before. There was another section with protective gear for when we spar I guess.

 

    “Dang…” I said under my breath. “This is like, a legit superhero training facility.”

 

    “Yes, it is legit.” Bob said.

 

    He continued walking into a hallway that had doors on both sides.

 

    “These are your dorm rooms. Nick, Angus; you guys are roommates. And Iris and Tory are roommates. Oh, but first!” He handed each of us cell phones.

 

    We gladly took them and walked into the dorm rooms. Nick set down the backpack he had and I set down my beanie suitcase.

 

    He smirked, “The Beanie Life?”

 

    “I like beanies, okay?”

 

    We heard a knock at the door and Nick walked over to open it. The girl with the brown hair and blue eyes stood there.

 

    “Hi.” She said,

 

    Nick grinned, “Hey! Tory! How do you like your room?”

 

    She nods, “I like it.”

 

    The other girl came in; the pretty one that told me to put headphones on in the plane, “Nice room.” She told us, looking the room up and down.

 

    “Maybe we should all get to know each other.” Nick said.

 

    “Okay,” Tory and responded.

 

    Iris – on the other hand – didn’t agree, “It’s 11:30 at night.”

 

    “C’mon Iris.” Tory reasoned. “It’s not like we have school tomorrow.”

 

    “Fine.”

 

    I never went to regular school, I was homeschooled. But, it’s not like my family and I judge people for not being home schooled, like my parents aren’t like this:

 

    Well, I take the time to invest in my child’s life. But I understand that there are more important things. Than your own flesh and blood!

 

    And it’s not like I’m all like this:

 

    Hi! Are you homeschooled like me?

 

    Nope, I go to public school.

 

    What the heck? Are you stupid?

 

    No, I just go to public school.

 

You mean you trust this state with your precious education? Are you a Nazi!?

 

    What? No-

 

    Guys! Member of the third reich right here!

 

    I’m sure there are some jerks that are like that, but honestly, most homeschooling families don’t think that way, and they just want to be left alone.

 

    We all sat down on our dorm floor.

 

    “So, Iris,” I spoke up, “Which state do you live in?”

 

    “Alaska. You?”

 

    “Kansas. Nick?”

 

    “California,” Nick replied. “Tory?”

 

    “New York. Uh, Angus, do you have any siblings?”

 

    “Yeah, an older sister who’s fifteen named Abigail. What about you?”

 

    “A two-year-old brother named Oliver. Nick?”

 

    Nick looked up, “What? Oh, yeah. A twin sister named Melanie. Iris?”

 

    Iris still looked like she’d rather be in her room than sitting in a circle talking about ourselves. “An older brother, sixteen, named Peter.”

 

    We all kind of stopped. I assumed that we were all thinking of our families. What did my mom do when I didn’t come down to the basement? Does she think I’m dead? Why did I go on the plane?

 

    Nick broke the silence again, “Uh, is anyone here homeschooled?”

 

    I raised my hand. And, as I suspected, I was the only homeschooler. Before anyone could ask me those annoying questions homeschoolers get asked, such as: So, what do you do all day? How do you make friends? Wait, so you don’t know what that bad word means?

 

I said, “Yes, I do actual school work. I make friends just like everyone else, by moving my lips to make words. And, is it so bad that I don’t know what some bad words mean? And it’s just an unfortunate coincidence that I’m homeschooled and live on a farm.”

 

Tory looked at me, “I wish I was homeschooled, since I usually have to babysit Oliver all the time. I have a friend who’s homeschooled and she loves it.”

 

I smiled. Good, they aren’t stereotyping me like what society thinks homeschooling is.

 

Iris stood up, “Well, sorry to be a party pooper, but I’m going to bed.”

 

Everyone agreed and we all hit the hay.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Chapter 10
Nick Delray
 

 

 

 

Our dorm room, 5:00 a.m.

 

    Apparently, Angus needs to sleep with a stuffed beanie and sing beanie lullabies to get to sleep. It was impossible to get any sleep, and when I finally did get some sleep, Bob came in and woke us up with Rocky music.

 

    I sat bolt upright when “Gonna Fly Now” started playing in my ear. “What was that for?” I sputtered to a grinning Bob.

 

    “C’mon, I’ve already woken up the girls; I have a surprise for you!” Bob was way too excited for it being only 5:00 a.m.

 

    Reluctantly, we finally got up and got dressed; Angus was too squeamish to change in front of me so he went into the small bathroom. I guess the kid wasn’t used to having to change in front of people-something you get used to in public school.

 

    Finally, we stepped outside to find the girls already there. Tory noticed me and smiled, I smiled back and waved.

 

    Angus noticed this and asked, “You like her, don’t you?”

 

    I flushed at this, and replied, “Like her? Dude, I barely even know her.”

 

    “Finally!” Bob told us.

 

    “What exactly is this surprise that you just had to show us at five in the morning?” Iris demanded.

 

    “You guys are going to help me design your suits.” Bob responded.

 

 

 

 


                Basically we designed our supersuits on an app that Bob had and then he was going to use something to make them physical.

 

    Designing my suit was fun, first I designed the look. It was a long sleeved shirt like thing with a small flame on the chest. The bottom was well, like pants but fitted. Next, was the colors; I chose red, blue, and orange (since those were the colors of fire). The app had a whole bunch of attributes so I used one of them to make my suit fire-proof. I also chose some cool looking goggles just in case things got bad. Then, was the shoes, I chose red boots.

 

    After Bob made them all physical, he had us try them on.

 

    Tory’s suit was different shades of blue and tight. She had a utillity belt thingy, not sure why she’d need that. And she had a water droplet on her chest. And then she had black boots that ended just below her knee.

 

    Iris, on the other hand, apparently got roped into wearing a skirt. The costume was all green, looking like it was made out of a seaweed wrap, she also had some ivy wrapped around her waist. Her shoes were like green sandals with vines snaking up her legs.

 

    Angus’was similar to The Flash’s suit, but gray with tornadoes instead of lightning bolts. And, of course, you can’t forget his beanie.

 

    “Oh yeah!” Bob pulled out two masks - a blue one and one that looked like ivy – and handed them to Iris and Tory, “To hide your identedies.”

 

    I guess we were posing like in the movies or something because Bob snapped a picture.

 

    Suddenly I realized that this was going to be a lot of fun.

Chapter 11
Tory McClain
 

 

 

 

Training center 7:00 a.m.

 

So, after we got all the instructions for being superheroes, we began our training. I was still trying to take everything in; in the last forty-eight hours my apartment flooded, I could apparently breathe underwater, I boarded a first class flight to the Caribbean, our flight cash landed into a facility in the middle of the ocean, and oh yeah, we became superheroes.

 

Bob said that he’d be training with us individually once a week. Nick on Mondays, me on Tuesdays, Angus on Wednesdays, Iris on Thursdays, and Friday was a group training day. Saturdays and Sundays were resting days.

 

“Sweet,” Angus exclaimed. “I get to be a superhero and I only have to train twice a week!”

 

“Well, you only have to train physically twice a week,” Bob returned. “The rest of the week whichever ones of you aren’t training with me will have school lessons from your phone.”

 

“Our phones,” Iris challenged.

 

“Yeah,” Bob replied. “Oh right! Your phones have amazing things such as, holographic classrooms with full lessons in math, science, English, and history.”

 

We all groaned.

 

“Anyway, it’s Tuesday, so Tory, you’re with me and the rest of you get started with school.”

 

The others groaned. I was pretty excited to start my training with Bob.

 

He took me into one of the enclosed training grounds, saying it was waterproof, just in case.

 

He ordered me to go put my suit on, so I went to the “locker room” thingies where mine and Iris’ suits were. Quickly, I put it on and went to the training grounds expecting to start with awesome water tricks but instead found a glass cup with a faucet over it.

 

“Uh, what is this?” I asked.

 

“You need to learn how to control water first, so you will need to get at least one drop of water into the cup.”

 

I shrugged, “Okay.” I didn’t seem that hard.

 

Unfortunately, I was dead wrong.

 

 

I grimaced and tried for the millionth time.

 

“I can’t do it.” I spoke finally.

 

Bob just nodded, “Maybe this will help you.”

 

He walked over to a speaker and plugged his phone into it. Not even a minute later, I heard: ♪ Superhero practice! Hey! Superhero practice! Yeah! Superhero-ing’s harder than it looks! It’s the kind of thing they just don’t teach in books! ♪

 

I looked up, “Is that Backyardigans?”

 

Bob laughed, “Did that cheer you up a little?”

 

I smiled, “Yeah.” A question came to me, “Hey, were you the one that gave us the envelopes and got our stuff to the airport?”

 

Bob nodded, “Yes, yes I did.”

 

“How?”

 

“Well, because I have light powers, which make me able to travel at the speed of light.”

 

I was astounded, “Really?”

 

He nodded.

 

“Wait, how did you know that we’d take the bait?” I questioned.

 

“Hope.” Bob replied.

 

“Are you trying to quote Superman or Supergirl?”

 

Bob nodded, “Yes I am.”

 

“Hey, can I go take a break and check on the others?” I asked.

 

“Sure, you deserve a break.”

 

I smiled, “Cool, thanks!”

 

I ran out of there and raced to the hall where the rooms were. I considered knocking on Iris’ door but I figured she’d be a little peeved at me for interrupting her, so I knocked on the boys’ door.

 

Angus opened up, “You here to see Nick?”

 

“No…I came to check on the both of you.” I responded.

 

“Oh, well, okay.”

 

I stepped into what reminded me of my middle school classroom. Except the only students were Nick and Angus, and the teacher looked strangely like Daisy Ridley.

 

“Nick! Tory’s here!” Angus told him.

 

Nick quickly paused and shut off the classroom hologram and it looked like the same room we were all in yesterday.

 

“Was that Daisy Ridley as your teacher?” I asked them.

 

“Whaaaaaaaaaa-”

 

“You can change how the teacher looks!” Angus put in.

 

I raised an eyebrow, “So you chose Daisy Ridley?”

 

“Well, it was either that or Roz from Monsters Inc.” Nick defended himself.

 

I chuckled, “Mm hm.”

 

“Anyway,” Nick tried to change the subject. “How’s training going with Bob?”

 

Horrible I wanted to say, but instead went with, “Oh, it’s going great, really learning a lot.”

 

Angus laughed, “Yeah, we heard ♪ Superhero practice! Hey! Superhero practice! Yeah! Superhero-ing’s harder than it looks! It’s the kind of thing they just don’t teach in books! ♪”

 

I rubbed my arm sheepishly, “Yeah, Bob said it was for ‘motivation’.”

 

All of a sudden, I heard, “TOOOOORRRRRRYYYYYY!!!”

 

I winced, “That’s Bob, I better go.”

 

Nick and Angus waved to me as I ran back to where Bob was waiting.

 

“Okay, you hyped up?” Bob asked.

 

“Yeah, I guess.” I didn’t even want to try anymore, I was just too tired.

 

But I did, I closed my eyes and concentrated as hard as I could. All I thought of was water. The feeling of it, the look, the way fresh or ocean water smelled.

 

And then finally, I heard Bob say, “You did it! You did it!”

 

I opened my eyes and looked up, “I did?”

 

He nodded excitedly and motioned for me to look in the bucket. I ran over, and saw exactly what I wanted to see. Three little droplets of water were sitting at the bottom of the bucket.

 

I looked up, and smiled.

Chapter 12
Angus Huggins
 

 

 

 

Training Facility

10:00 a.m.

 

    I had already finished my second training and now Bob was going to give us our weapons and our names.

 

    Tory was right, training is hard. I had to create a gust of wind, easy right? WRONG. After two and a half hours, all I created was a small breeze. A breeze. And it only lasted two seconds. Plus, this was my second training.

 

    I was glad it was over and to be receiving my weapon.

 

    “Nick,” Bob said. “Your name is, The Sensational Torch. And your weapon is,” he handed Nick – The Sensational Torch – a bow and a quiver full of arrows, “Flaming Arrows.”

 

    Nick grinned and took an arrow out. It started flaming.

 

    “Oh, be careful,” Nick put the arrow back and looked at Bob questioningly when he said that. “They catch fire when taken out of the quiver.”

 

    Nick started grinning again, “Cool.”

 

    “Tory,” Bob walked over to Tory, “Or should I say, Aquara?” Tory smiled. “Your weapon is this trident.” He handed her the trident.

 

    She took it and smiled, “Thanks.”

 

    “Iris,” He faced her. “Your name is, Miss Chloroplast.”

 

    Iris raised an eyebrow, “Miss Chloroplast?”

 

    Bob nodded, “And your weapon are these,” he held out a packet of seeds.

 

    She took it and stared at him, “Seeds? My weapon is a packet of seeds?”

 

    “Have you ever heard the story of Jack and the Beanstalk?” Bob asked.

 

    Iris raised her eyebrow again, “So you gave me…magic beans?”

 

    “Well, sort of,” Bob said. “You throw these on the ground, they create a plant in seconds, and you can manipulate them at your will.”

 

    “Okay,” Iris didn’t seem convinced.

 

    “And last but not least, Angus,” Bob walked over to me and faced me, “You will be Cyclone Hex, and you’re weapon is…” he handed me three fidget spinners.

 

    “Fidget spinners?” I asked, taking them. I thought it would be something cool like Nick’s or even Iris’s, but a fidget spinner was something all my friends had. I never got one, because, well, I never saw the appeal.

 

    “Throw em’ on the ground,” Bob told me.

 

    I tossed one of them to the ground and a cyclone appeared.

 

    “Once you get a bit more in control with your powers, they’ll be easier to manipulate.”

 

    I grinned, “Cool.”

 

    Things were starting to get more superhero-like, and I liked it.
