Okay, got it, thanks! :D
I woke up with a pounding headache and groaned. For once, and I was thankful for this, it wasn't because of my telepath abilities! Small blessings. I noticed everyone was somewhere within two rooms of me. Except Malia. Starting to panic, I gently went through the minds of the house to find Malia in her room, sulking. Why? I would have to ask her later. "Ginger! You okay?" Lily asked, concerned. I nodded. "Nothing I haven't handled before. This is actually on the low side. What is it with me and headaches now-a-days?" I say jokingly. "It's getting you ready for college," Mary-Kate remarks dryly. "Ha ha," I say in an equally dry voice. "Now what are you guys doing here? Obviously you got me back. Did you get the guy, the robot-spider?" I questioned quickly. "Slow down. Malia intercepted you and the guy, but he ran away. She also saved a kid from the spider and helped destroy it," Lily said proudly. I nod, proud as well of my baby sister. "Then why is she sulking?" I inquired. She and Josh winced, Mary-Kate and Grim looked away. "Someone recognized her as a former-villain and sort of... vented," Josh said slowly. I groan, this time because of the headache. "Well, why aren't you guys out there looking for the guy?" I try a new questioning line. They shrugged. "Worried about you. We can't let you outta sight for more than five minutes without you getting kidnapped or brain scrambled or something," Grim answered this time. "I'm fine. I'm a grown boy. Go and investigate," I say, slightly exasperated at both their concern and all the villains targeting me lately. "And Malia is doubting herself as a hero again," Josh puts in. I nod and sigh. "Well, leave Malia with me. I'll give her the self confidence boost, maybe help train her, and if anyone comes, which is highly unlikely as that leg was an accident, we can take 'em. Go do your detective work and if you find anything and nothing goes wrong, mentally shout and I may even make some brownies for when you get back," I tell them, only half-joking about the last part. Lily can make a good cake when she tries, but my brownies were killer. No pun intended. They still hesitated. "What are you doing here? Go! I'll get Malia down here and she'll 'protect me' and I'll teach her or a thing or two. And as an added bonus, you might get brownies if you get any information! So get out!" I say and then have to literally, physically, push them out the door in their uniforms. "All right, all right, we're going!" Mary-Kate says and Grim rolls his eyes. Then they all rush off to the crime scene for investigation. Then I take a deep breath and trudge up the stairs to Malia and Lily's room, ready to take on my desparately-in-need-of-self-esteem, moody-teenage, little sister. I knocked on the door. "Malia? Everyone else left for investigation. I figured now would be good time for a little hero training before they get back," I tell her softly before opening the door and finding her on her stomach on her bed, hugging her pillow. I sit on the side of the bed and rub her back. "I'll even let you try some of the brownie batter later," I promise her. Then she says something, but it's muffled by the pillow. "What did you say?" I inquire, not mean, just curious. "I said that no matter what, I'm never going to be a hero," she said as she propped herself up on her elbows, head in hands. I sigh. "You have been listening to the public way to much. They are stubborn little things that are too judgmental for their own good," I inform her. "But she, they, were right! It doesn't matter how much good I do! I'll always be a villain!" she practically sobs. I pull her into a hug and we are both silent for a moment. "And it doesn't matter what you do, you will always be my sister," I whisper to her, "And as your big brother, it is my duty to inform you that as one of the younger siblings that it is your duty to prove everyone else wrong about everything that they say bad about you. And if you are a villain, as they so eloquently put it, then you are more of an anti-villain than anything. Actually, an anti-hero. More of a hero than anyone who is trying to put you down. Because those guys? They are more villainous than you are right now. So what do you say? Wanna go do some training then maybe get some brownie batter before going on your first official full-length hero mission? Super-long investigations and corny one-liners included?"
