Chapter 5: Identities The group looks on in a combination of shock and horror as Kyle turns to them. His voice is nothing more than a whisper though a trace of cockiness is still there. Kyle: Pretty, ain't it? The group looks on, too shocked for words. Kyle: These are all just from tonight. DarkCat runs forward. DarkCat: Tonight!? But...you've been at this for years! Edge: I've...been in excellent hands. As if on cue, a middle-aged man walks in. He has short, graying hair, dark eyes that are almost black. His physicality is toned, though. He wears a white wife-beater, and black shorts. Man: Damn it Kyle... Kyle: It was the Heaven or Hell Gang, Stormm. Stormm: You've handled them before... Kyle: They caught me off guard. Stormm: Yer getting cocky, Edge. It'll get you killed one day. Kyle: We've been through this. Stormm: Too many times. Regardless, Stormm starts attending to Kyle's wounds. Kyle sits down. Amazonia: Uh...we're still here, if it matters. Kyle: It matters. Before you tell me what exactly you with me, show me your faces. Your real faces. KnightBat: This is my real face. Kyle stares at him. Knghtbat: (sighing) If you insist. KnightBat rips off his cowl. Under it is a man with messy brown-black hair, striking green eyes, and a solemn expression. DarkCat's eyes turn from her cat gold to a baby blue. She rips off her face mask, and somewhat slumps. Amazonia stays the same. Amazonia: What? Everyone stares at her. Amazonia: Fine. Her body shrinks a few inches, and her black hair changes to brown. Kyle looks at KnightBat, quizzically. Kyle: Bruce Masters? The famous zillionare? This is what you do in your free time? I thought you took up polo. Bruce just stares at Kyle. Kyle: Riiiiiiiight. Sorry, don't know who you guys are? DarkCat: My name's Stephanie Dark. Amazonia: Desiree Bell. Kyle: Kyle Enders. Now that we're done with the pleasantries, what the f**k did you want with me? Bruce: We heard that there was going to be a problem. A crisis of sorts. Kyle: What kind of Crisis? Stephanie: We were in battle with The Captain, a man with a pirate obsession. We stopped him, and he told us something big was going to happen soon. Her voice lost some of its darkness. Kyle sighs. Kyle: Like WHAT? Bruce: All he said was that it would involve Michael Gamas- Kyle: The celebrated entrepeneur and scientist? Desiree: Yes. Him. Him and his press conferance tomorrow would be the start of something big. Stephanie: We need you to help us watch over it, to stop whatever should happen from occuring? Kyle: How do you know he wasn't lying? Bruce: I have...methods...of getting the truth out of people. Kyle: Something doesn't add up here. Why me? Stephanie: Because you're the best out of all of us. Kyle blushes somewhat. Kyle:Soooooo...have a place to stay for the night? Stormm: Do we have enough room for that? Kyle: We'll make room.
