Superpowered Babysitters Wanted

Rev started off with Lawrence in hand, moving much faster than she normally did on foot, though still not near as fast as she could fly.  She sped past the fake Megan she had previously downed and out the door of the room.  She easily made her way back up to the first floor and was even able to continue on through the front door and outside.

 

As she ran onto turnaround out in front of the mansion, she found that the night sky was filled with a glowing energy that seemed to form a dome over the mansion and much of the surrounding grounds. 

"Stop!"  Lawrence called out as they exited.  When Rev complied he pulled himself free from her grip and looked up at the sky.  "This is bad."  He stated.  "That is some sort of time distortion.  I…am not sure what will happen if we try to pass through it."

 

Down in the home theater, the figure that looked like Megan climbed back to her feet and turned her focus to SFX.  "Lawrence is a danger to timelines, it would be best if he came with us."  Aiming her hand at SFX as the Robert look alike had, the figure fired a similar blue beam that struck SFX.

 

The teenager felt a tingling sensation wash over her body.  It felt as if her body the energy was trying to seize up her entire body, but she managed to resist the effect, and the sensation soon past.

 

Suddenly the figure that looked like Robert appeared outside of the wall SFX had made.  He also raised his hand to fire a similar beam at SFX, but this time she managed to dodge aside.

Zhu shivered not knowing what had hit her and not liking it one bit.  She did have some of the botnet tasked to logging events and when she had time, she wanted to go back and see what they had recorded.  As Not!Robert teleported out of her makeshift prison she mentally berated herself.  Of course they teleported!  She knew that from when they suddenly appeared.  That meant that it was time to get far more creative and perhaps destructive.  Taking the wall that she had created, she executed a code that she had never thought to need.

 

COMMAND> ex_dest (M: 48d, D:10m) Go

 

The destruction command ripped the wall out of place and hurled it at the duo as she tried to make an improvised flyswatter.  With the debris and smoke she was rather pleased with herself and even gave a little quip, "no, what would be better if if you scheduled time with his real parents to talk it over!"

 

She was about to turn and meet up with Rev when the botnet, in it's ever so helpful fashion, informed her that perhaps it wasn't quite time to gloat!  Both of the pseudo parents were not only on their feet, but they didn't look happy!

"Time distortion, huh? Well, of course. I knew that. A time distortion thing. A thing that distorts time. Totally" agreed Rev. 

 

"So, this feels bad, kid. But don't worry! We and Zhu have faced down worse than this!" she lied with a smile. 

 

"Best we go help her. And maybe she knows about dime tistortion, I mean time distortion fields" she finished. 

 

She will know a lot more than me. 

 

Feeling the zip of speed, she rushed back into the house but not the basement. 

 

"Go and hide, kid! Not under the bed though. That's where everyone looks!" she ordered Lawrence, before putting him down and continue her speedy travel back down to the basement. 

 

"What's going on Zhu? We got a thingy thing field around the house. Feels pretty thingy, if you ask me..."

Lawrence had been about to say something as Rev put him back down inside the house, but she was then gone.  Rev returned to the home theater finding it much more chaotic than when she had left, several of the seats gone and the plaster on the wall cracked and damaged.

 

The Megan look alike climbed back to her feet after being slammed between SFX's wall and the room’s, and though a bit worse for wear, but not out of the fight yet.


"We will take Lawrence to the master."  She said, before disappearing from view.  The Robert look alike also vanished, leaving the two teenagers alone in the room.

One second they were in the basement and Zhu was expecting to have a very very bad day, the next second... gone.  Yet that wasn't what sent a chill down her spine, it was the the comment of what they were doing that scared her the most.

 

"Oh no..." Zhu said as Rev burst into the room, "I hit them with a wall... the whole wall and they disappeared after saying they were taking Lawrence!  What happened to him?"

 

As she was talking, she was already letting the botnet spread out from her, searching the house to see where their charge was and if she could find either of the Not!People.  As she let them do their work she worked on what she hoped would be a suitable distraction, creating a very convincing replica of Lawrence and sent it running ahead of her as she turned to the door with Rev and ran to hopefully get to the child before the very weird simulacrums.  She hoped the little bots would give her enough information that she didn't have to waste time finding wherever they needed to go.

 

"Thingy field?  You mean they're time travelers too?!"

Rev

 

"What? They disappeared? Oh no..." gasped Rev. 

 

"I told him to go hide....stupid!" she slapped her forehead. "They must be tracking him...."

 

With her ongoing turn of speed, she dashed up to the main home where she had left Lawrence. 

 

"Lawrence, Lawrence, where are you? They can track you...come here...." she screamed at the top of her lung. 

 

She drew back her right fist. A little pilot light came on in the palm, burning through the gelskin in a second. If the hunters appeared, she would light up the place. 

 

Not burn it. Although at this stage, she was pretty sure burning down the house would be acceptable to the parents. Better than losing their son. 

 

But she could shoot a flare - an incandescent burst of light to dazzle everyone. Except her, or course.

The two teenagers rushed back out of the room and up the stairs.  SFX's botnet had located Lawrence and the two simulacrums up in the dance studio.  It only too moments for the two to rush to that location.

 

As they arrived the simulacrums had pulled Lawrence out of a closet in the room hidden behind a mirror.  Lawrence was struggling as he said, "when my mother finds you two she is SO going to kick your butts!"

 

Just then a hole seemed to form the air near the two and Lawrence went quiet as he stared at the rift with a very worried look.  And suddenly all three were pulled into the rift, disappearing from site.

 

The hole started to fluctuate, as if it were about to close…..

Rev

 

"Holy Hole!" gasped Rev.

 

"That looks like a time thingy thing!" she explained to Zhu, full of confidence in her scientific acumen. 

 

"And wherever it leads, its better than where we go if we don't rescue Lawrence. Argh....angry parents....guilt....shame...." she shuddered. 

 

"So let's go!" she yelled, full of fear and bravery and other stuff. 

 

With a little jump, she dashed through the hole ready for...

 

...well she didn't know what for. 

 

But it was going to something, and something big.

Whatever energy was being used to sustain the portal is was causing havoc with the sensors in the tiny machines.  She couldn't even count the number of errors that were popping up in her mind.  Everything about it screamed wrong on so many levels.  Yet, that is where the couple had taken Lawrence as Rev explained that it was a timey thing.  She would have laughed if the concept of stepping through it didn't terrify her so much.  She had a pretty firm grasp on some of the more scientific concepts of portals and 4th dimensional modeling.  She'd read about everything from Quantum Entanglement to the philosophical mussing of the continuity of existence after being transported anywhere.  There was no real proof that whoever stepped out of the hole in front of them would be the same as who went in.

 

"I'm right behind you!" she shouted as much for herself as for her friend.  Which was one of the reasons she loved her so much.  Rev never worried about things she just acted.  She didn't consider things like Chernekov Radiation's ability to achieve super luminary speeds.  She didn't worry about  the neurological continuity of self.  She did what was needed and acted.  While Zhu might have been paralyzed by analysis, she dove after her friend, stepping through the portal with her illusion of Lawrence in tow.

Both Rev and SFX barely hesitated before they moved into action, even as they felt the speed that Lawrence had provided start to fade.  Luckily, they were close enough that they were still able to reach the portal before it vanished.  The two teenagers vanished just as Lawrence and the simulacrum had previously. 

 

Within moments of Rev and SFX entering the portal it collapsed and the dance studio was empty once more.  There was nothing that indicated anyone had ever been present, let alone was there any clue of where they might have gone.
