A sigh escaped Koan's lips, not one of displeasure, but one of nervousness.

"Hello, uhm, sure, let's go. I feel better walking anyway."

Koan smiled awkwardly again, he never really spoke to women in his life, never really learned how to speak to them.

Eddie looked up, contemplating. "Yeah. Hopefully we can figure this out soon." Eddie sat thinking, and suddenly felt bad about bringing Nina into this. In an attempt to make the situation lighthearted again, he rose his head, asking,

"So, shouldn't dinner be done yet?"




Two cloaked figures stood and watched as the Powter residence, 404 Cherenix Court, was burning to the ground. They stood out of sight, away from the desperate firefighters trying to clear the fire enough to get inside. Their fight was a losing one. The cloaked men had made sure of that. They disappeared into the shadows as Koan and Alyssa turned the corner to see the blaze, surrounded by onlookers and firefighters. The fire was raging, enormous and powerful, and the second floor was already almost destroyed.

Alyssa's eyes widened. "No..." She whispered. She ran up to the house. A fire man blocked her way. "Woah there lil lady..." The fire man looked right at her. "Why are you rushing into a crime scene?"

Alyssa's mind was blank she couldn't speak. "How many victims, she said with a very concerned look. One of them may be a student of mine."

The reflection of the blaze lit Koan's eyes unnaturally. A certain ferocity burned in them, and Koan could think of nothing but ill wishes for the clocked man he met earlier, Sandman...In a daze, Koan moved beside Alyssa, glancing at her for a brief moment, and wishing he could push himself into the house, find any signs of life, and exit. But such heroism is reserved for the men and women already here, fighting to put the blaze out. Koan knew it was too late for those in the house...but what if...

"Nina..."

Alyssa turned around. "Nina... You mean Nina DiSanto?" She looked through her bag she carried with her always. "What is it?" She said clutching a sheet of paper in her bag.

"I don't know her last name, but he was going to go to her house after school, he felt he was being...followed..."

Koan felt terrible for not doing anything more about Eddie...

"I overheard them in the hallway, asked if they needed help, but was shot down..."

Something didn't feel right. Nina couldn't place her finger on it, but something just felt...off. Shrugging the bad feeling off as concern, Nina replied. "Hopefully...I'm frigging starved!"

She rose to her feet and made her way over to her dresser. She opened the drawer second to the bottom and pulled out a pair of sweatpants. Then after tossing the dark gray pants onto her bed, she opened up her closet, reached inside and brought her hand back out with a black hoodie of her own.

"I'm going to get changed real quick." She announces. "It's so cold..." She adds with a shiver.

*****
The front door opened, and in stepped a tall figure. Alessandro, the eldest brother, had a slightly muscular build. Nothing too flashy, just something that fit his 6 foot stature nicely. Just like the rest of his family, his skin was olive. They all had the typical Italian features. The green eyes, dark brown hair...yet with the exception of he and Nina being nearly identical to one another, each member had their own charm to themselves.

Alessandro and Nina both had brown hair so dark that it appeared to be black, but while Nina's followed down to her waist, Alex kept his cut short. Dante and Gianni, Nina's other brothers, maintained dark, yet obviously brown. While the pair looked alike as well, both kept to their own styles. Gianni's green eyes were always filled with laughter and excitement. His layered hair fell in whisps around his cheekbones while Dante grew his own hair into a short ponytail and demonstrated calm and collected expressions.

"The weirdos are upstairs." Gianni announced as Alex walked into the dinningroom, where Gianni was setting up the table as Dante finished up with the dinner. Alex simply nodded. Eddie was the exception. It did not matter whether he was at their home or Nina was at his. Alex's only requirement was that Nina let him know if she wasn't going to be home.

"Nina's in Algebra this semester too." She clutched the sheet of paper. It had an address and a phone number on it. Should I call her... or go to her house... She thought. "Let's go to her house in person okay?" She walked back to the park and looked at his van and then at her car. "Get in the passenger side she said opening the door and unlocking the passenger door."

Eddie had a blank stare on his face for a moment before he realized what Nina said.

"Oh. Oh! Oh! Yeah, lemme get out of your hair, then!" He quickly jumped up and walked out, blushing as he shut the door behind him. He stood there for a moment, looking back into the closed door. I wonder if she's ever thought of me as anything more...He pondered, but quickly shook the thought from his mind. He wouldn't use his power or even act upon anything of the sort, not for this. He felt stupid as he made his way down to the living room, unaware of what had happened, and what lied before him.

With a shake of the head, Koan grabbed his black hooded sweatshirt from his van. Guess she's driving. Hopping into the passenger seat, he noted her car was smaller, probably faster.

He pulled the seat belt over his muscular chest, and lay his sweatshirt on his lap, waiting until he would get out again to don it.

He left the tiny car after it came to a stop by a well-lit house in a nicer area. Koan pulled his hoodie on and knocked on the door. A tall Italian man answered.

"Hello, I'm Koan, is Eddie here?"

Alex responded, "How do you know Eddie."

"I'm a Janitor at his school, this is a student teacher of his, Alyssa."

"Yeah, he's here. Come in..."

Alessandro did not seem to like Koan, looking at him suspiciously, as he entered the house.

"What do you want with Eddie?" Alessandro asked.

"We think something might have happened to his parents...Well, it'd be better to explain to him."

Eddie turned the corner, facing Alessandro, his student teacher and the new janitor. "Why are you guys here? I'd understand if it was just you, Ms. Isiadore, but why the janitor?"

((WEEEEE!!! Time Skip!))

Alyssa looked forward. Her eyes looked in the house. She felt very unwelcomed. Alyssa was ready for the rash to happen when she reported what happened to Eddie's house. She was thinking of what she would do to keep him from not trusting in her. Her eyes warmed when she saw that he was okay. "Eddie... We need to talk in private."

"Hi Eddie, I'm Koan..."

He didn't know where to start.

"I met one of the men in the cloaks today, and he attacked me. He mentioned your name, and...said you'd learn of what 'they' could do soon enough."

Koan rubbed his shaved head...

"I think they set fire to your house, to get to you...They want you for some reason, both of us, according to the Sandman..."

As soon as Koan mentioned the cloaks, Eddie went blank. Fear crept steadily into his being, trying to turn on the systems shock had shut down.

"...No. No! NO!"

He bolted past everyone, dashing out into the street, not letting himself believe what Koan and Alyssa had just said. He moved faster than he ever had before, not even stopping to breathe. Tears wanted to rush out his eyes but pure adrenaline kept them in check until he turned the corner on his block and saw the crisped ruins of his former life.

The ruins of his family. The second the truth awoke in him, he stopped. Not bothering to catch his breath, he dropped to his knees in disbelief and sadness. He was responsible for his parents' death. The memories of his mother and father filled his mind as he wept fearsome cries of rage and sorrow. He was alone in the world, no other family, immediate or extended, to got to. His world was over.

"EDDIE!!" Alyssa ran past Koan and ran trying to catch up to Eddie. She finally caught up and huffed. "Eddie..." She put a hand on him. Alyssa looked at Eddie. "Eddie... I'm sorry... But you're not alone. They're after other people. No one is safe..." Alyssa looked infront of her a picture landed. She picked it up and her eyes blanked out again just like when she touched the board infront of Eddie. She was taken back again...

"We need to talk about your son..." a cloaked figure said. She was flashed to when the house was burned down and just as she came around the corner with Koan it was too late they had vanished.

Alyssa's eyes filled with tears as her vision came back. She grabbed Eddie by the arm and looked down at him. She began to blame herself for what had happened. If he's so important... I will help keep him safe... "We have to get you out of here..." So many thoughts of grief filled her mind as she looked at Eddie. "I'll explain later, but you're out in the open."

Nina shruged as Eddie exited her bedroom and she quickly changed. She shivered as she slipped into her sweatpants. It's so cold... she thought to herself.

A few moments later, Nina bounded down the stairs, her long hair now tied back into a braid with a pink bow at the bottom. The bow swing from left to right as she moved but slammed into the small of her back as Nina made a sudden stop. Alessandro had led Eddie, and two other vaguely familiar figures out of her foyer and into her living room.

"The hell?!" She mumbled as she made an attempt to follow. Alessandro's arm shot forward, too quickly for Nina to evade it. "Shhhh..." He said quietly as he caught his sister, preventing her from following.

"They're here for Eddie." He said. His voice was calm and deep as usual, masking the uncertanity he was feeling. This is going to be messy... he thought to himself.

"Stop it. You don't understand...I have to be in there with him!" Nina exclaimed, not caring whether or not the entire street, let alone the household, hear her.

I do understand...I think. Alex thought to himself, staring down at Nina's futile attempts to break free of his grasp.

Just then, Eddie darted past her, shouting. Nina froze, falling limp in Alessandro's arms for a moment, and then breaking free. "What happened?" Her outburst was angry, but the anger was directed to no one, not even Koan or Alyssa. The situation was growing more frustrating by the moment.

Gianni and Dante were now in the living room, as well as Alessandro, who had followed Nina.

"What?" Dante's soft voice cooed.

"Who the hell are you?" Gianni's outburst poured out.

"It's alright." Alessandro replied.

Nina, however, gave no time for anything else to be said. She let out a cry of frustration and bolted out her door after Eddie. Something told her to head toward his place. He must have been scared to go home for a reason... she thought frantically as she ran as quickly as she could. It didn't take her long to catch up with Eddie. Several years of running for the track team made sure of that.

It wasn't until she caught up with him that she took notice to the fact that Alyssa had also followed him.

"Eddie!" She exclaimed, throwing her arms around him and tugging Eddie close to her and putting herself between her friend and Alyssa. Before turning to Alyssa, she held her friend as tightly as she could.

She then glanced back at the teacher. "What just happened?" She asked. Her voice was calm. Nina knew she wasn't going to hurt Eddie. If she was, had her chance. Alyssa had gotten to Eddie a few seconds before she did, and she appeared to be attempting to comfort him.

Alyssa looked at Nina. She sighed, how was she going to explain? Alyssa looked at Nina, "I'll talk later, right now we need to get Eddie to a safe place," Alyssa sighed as she began to wonder how she was going to say to Nina, I have visions when I touch things... Eddie may believe her, on the other hand, Nina may distrust her thinking it was her fault.

((OOC: So as it turns out, I have a little bit of Internet access at the place I'm staying. Just a little something to add while I'm here))


"Donnie was a good man, full of life. A good husband and a loving son and brother--" the preacher droned on.

Cally glanced at her watch again through her dark glasses. "Every dead man was 'full of life,'" she mused, mildly rolling her eyes.

It was obviously not the first funeral she'd been to and it most likely wouldn't be the last. Cally'd always hated how every eulogy was pretty much the same: a declaration of being a "loving" this, a "dedicated" that, followed by an eventual rounding out of the stiff's hobbies, and then of course...


"... spending his days surfing the many beaches along the California coast until that one fateful day. Donnie was in the wrong place at the wrong time. God had a plan for Donnie--" the preacher continued.

"Here we go..."

"--and it involved meeting his maker at the hands of bad men. Donnie could not have known what evils he was encountering every day in his daily job. His job which helped him pay the bills, support his wife, Emily, and what future children they were planning to have together. A job that would eventually lead to his untimely end."

All around, people were sobbing. Aching. Cally smoothed out her skirt and sighed heavily. It wasn't fair that she reaped an innocent man before his time, but funerals were always the same story time and again. A family comes together to grieve--united in sorrow. Cally's mourning period for her parents consisted of push-ups at 3 a.m., cold showers at dawn, and a slap on the wrist whenever she'd shed a tear, revealing weakness. There wasn't any tenderness in her Spartan training.

Either way, Cally may have been hard, but she wasn't inhuman. Guilt occasionally seeped through the cracks, although it was often stifled. Still, all the years of hating cold-blooded murderers not a day went by that she didn't wonder if she was just as bad.


"I can't believe you actually went to the dealer's funeral, Roxton."

Cally didn't turn around. She knew that accent anywhere.

"I'm not in the mood for sparring right now, George," she said. The funeral group at the cemetary was small, with many seats set out near the grave. Cally sat in the very back, away from the family and friends. George stood directly behind her folding chair.

"I swear, you are absolutely the most peculiar hired gun I've ever acquainted. If you're going to feel so bad about it why don't you just turn him into a duck or something? Can't testify against you then, can he?"

"Enough, George."

"So where's Agwe?" George prodded. "He's just as responsible as you are, isn't he?"

"It's his weekend with his daughter--Now if you don't mind..."

"Oh, Callisto, who are you fooling?" He firmly clasped her shoulders. "Stop playing Inigo Montoya for a minute. It's time to drop the revenge thing."

She promptly stood up and walked away, George power-walked to her side.

"So I heard from the widow that she received a very hefty sum from a 'Jane Doe.' Enough to pay all of the funeral expenses and a bit more, even. That wouldn't be from a particular person's Swiss bank account, would it?"

She walked a little faster.

He grinned, allowing her to slowly out-pace him.


"Would it?" he called.

She started running, leaving a grinning George in her dust.

OOC: Respective time skip.

Eddie groaned as he rose out of bed, feeling drained. He tried to recall what had happened last night, and he could only remember up to when Alyssa and Nina had caught up to him. He felt like had cried out all the tears inside him until he ran dry. He walked somberly out into the hall and stepped into the bathroom, shutting and locking the door behind him. He took a quick shower, finding solace in the blinding heat of the water. After he was dressed and presentable, he walked back into the empty bedroom, propped down onto the bed, and lied back down, waiting for dawn to break.

4 hours later, Alessandro stepped into the room, finding Eddie awake, staring at the ceiling. "Why are you up?" Alessandro asked quietly.

"School." Eddie answered, emotionless and sure.

Alessandro seemed to understand. "Let me cook you a breakfast." He stepped out of the room, walking down the hall. That poor kid. Alessandro thought, before looking over at the door. Within sight of the door was a large double-barrel shotgun, inconspicuously placed in between a chair and the wall. After the talk he had with Alyssa and Koan, he felt it was for the best to be ready for anything.

-------------------------------

1 new voicemail for Mr. Wilford:

New assignment. A student at Celebration High, Eddie Powter, has just lost his guardians due to what we believe as 'their' activity. They were both post-humans, and we are fully aware that the boy is one himself. Pick him up in school today and take him to the detainment facility. No slip ups.




"This isn't good, sir." A young man said as he walked into a dark office. The young man had long, thick white hair, naturally light but dyed professionally, and a thin, pale face. "Two agents can't operate in the field for now. The Powters did a horrible job on Buddy, the bleeding just stopped. And we don't know how or why Sandman is as sick as he is, but we think it has something to do with the last target he was after."

The man sitting in the large arm chair fiddled with a pen, deep in thought. "I'm to assume last night's action signaled our motives against our enemies, correct?"

"Correct, sir. It's quite possible their presence will be much more focused now. Our information leads us to believe that the Objective will be assigned here."

The man in the chair grinned estatically. "Excellent, it seems besides a few setbacks, things are going perfectly for us. You're dismissed."

"Yes, sir." The white haired young man stepped outside the office building, disappearing from view.

Alyssa looked at her alarm clock and sighed. She knew what she had to do. She put on her normal attire for the school day. This time it was a white button down blouse where the sleeves flared out and around the waist was a belt with a silver buckle. She wore a pair of black slacks with a pair of black pumps. She got in her car and drove to the school. She stopped at the school and got out of her car. Alyssa grabbed her bag and walked with a serious look. Her heels clacked down the hall as she walked to the teacher's lounge seeing her mentor. "Ah... Mr. Smith." She said blinking. "What will I be doing? Today?"

The algebra teacher turned to her. "Ms. Isiadore you will be evaluating 1st, 2nd, and 3rd, then teaching 4th and 5th, since those two classes are the main math classes you will be teaching."

"You're right... I could never teach an honors class, a remedial class, and an AP class," she said challenging her mentor. She needed to get her mind off of Eddie, Koan, and Nina so she could focus on her actual career. "Not unless I learn while doing it..."

"That's correct and you'll be able to teach when you see first..." The teacher said. "Now go to the classroom and sit in the back for the first three courses like a good student, but if you wish to teach them so much, stay out and study the courses. Might I remind you that your plans are only approved by the principal because you need them critiqued then approved. I on the other hand don't," Mr. Smith smirked and looked at Alyssa. "Even then I am allowed to downplay your teaching methods. Therefore your final grade depends on me. Am I clear Miss Isiadore."

Alyssa looked at Mr. Smith and nodded twice. "Crystal. Don't plan on seeing me in your room 1st and 2nd block then. I will be in another math teacher's room." Alyssa gathered her books and then walked away. She sat down on her rear infront of the flag pole that was attached to a cement block. She looked through her journal and read through the many notes of which she wrote down visions. She took out a pen and began to write a date and time and what she touched. The first item read as:

Board - Mr. Smith screwing another teacher.
Chair - Girl with white hair that turned around and it changed to a brown. Bumped into Eddie.
Picture - Burning of the Powter home.

She slammed her journal closed and put it in her bag. "Three in a row... This is serious."

Alyssa groaned as she leaned back on the cement she sighed hoping to maybe see Koan again. She had a feeling she'd run into Nina and Eddie today of course.
