Prologue of the book I'm writing
The heroes faced each other on either side of the rooftop of a desolate building, concealed by the night.
"Hey you know this is kind of like that movie where Superman and Batman were fighting with each other"
"Orion, shut up"
"You know we could be friends if we didn’t fight all the time"
She sighed, rolling her eyes, "Maybe, y’know if you hadn’t destroyed my 3 years of research in one night, and now you’re trying to take the first case I’ve been given since you messed up - and no I'm not telling you what it is! The facility would give you up if you didn’t teleport"
"I wouldn’t be there anyway if I didn’t teleport" he grinned smugly, happy to get one over her.
"Shut up and go away!"
"Shut up and go away!!!! You sound like a 5 year old"
"Based on what you just did you're a 3 year old - now beat it!"
"Or what? ", he was daring her, and could almost taste the regret he knew he would inevitably feel.
"Or you'll get a bruise to the eye"
"Yeah ri-", with inhumane speed, she was on his side of the roof, punched him (hard) and sped off into the night, starting her mission.
“I don't think that’s gonna leave a bruise!” he called after her defiantly, rubbing his face where she’d hit him as he got up from the ground – he waited for the feeling of regret to arrive. It hit him like a wave, and it tasted like pain. He dusted himself off before realizing there was something glinting on the rooftop. It was a badge...
For the Cygnus Corps.
Orion’s breath came in heavy gasps as he called after his teammate. “Peregrine! PEREGRINE” but her figure had already shrunken to a blur in the distant night.
He kicked a rock off the roof in anger. "Dammit! At least I would be able to find her if I knew what she looked like!"
He scooped up the badge, shoving it in his pocket and removing his own mask. He sighed as he teleported onto the ground to catch the subway to university.
