Wheaton, IL Fair Grounds

Rob was on the phone with Campbell as The Zoo began to shut down,"What do you mean Urban Legend? I met the guy."

Campbell replied,"That's what the data base has him listed as, says people claim he's a Psion."

Rob chuckled,"He can't be, there's no such thing."

Campbell answered,"That's what they said about Big Foot."

Rob continued,"I don't need.....wait Bigfoot is real?!"

Campbell evaded the question,"We're getting off point, if he is an actual honest to god psion the boys in Washington will be messing their shorts over a chance to study him."

Rob replies,"On the downside it would mean he could kill us without breaking a sweat."

After he gets off the phone he goes back to the rest of the group,"The data base wasn't much help, apparently Bennet is listed as an urban legend, they claim he's a Psion."

Max laughs,"Seriously?"

Sara asks,"What's a Psion?"

Adam answers,"If they're real they're trans humans who control the full psionic spectrum?"

Rob sits down,"Basically if the ability ends in a kenetic or pathy he'd have it.Thing is no one reliable has ever confirmed whether or not any actually exist."

A few hours later

2 men sit outside a tent under a sign that reads' Styx and Stone'. Both are very large men, one with bark like skin looking as if a man shaped tree had come to life. The other had skin like marble. The Tree like one took the stage name Styx due to his appearance and it had become his nick name while his brother Stone thought up the idea for their act based on the old cliche.

Styx handed Stone a beer,"Brooks has been avoiding you since he showed up, still mad about Sammy I take it?"

Stone grabbed the beer, "Like I give a sh*t. It's not like I made her do it, she was the sober one remember?"

Styx chuckled,"You just need to get some Dunken appology form letters."

They look over at the group gathering near the rear of the area. Stone shouted,"Didn't you loonies learn your lesson?"

Bennet looked to his group,"Burn it down."

A woman in the group asked, "Isn't that a bit extreme?"

He smiled and looked at the woman whose eyes went blank for a moment and she forgot her complaint.

Foxtrot company had made there way to intervene. Max threw out a ball of flame in an attempt to scare them off. Bennet stopped the ball and caused it to increase size. Max looks shocked,"Well sh.........."

The group dives away as he hurls the fireball back causing Max to extinguish it. The rest of the protest group then ran forward as if possessed. The people of the Zoo rushed in to defend their home. Adam attempted to reign in Bennet but was over powered almost instantaneously. As the battle between the protest group and the Zoo's defenders commenced Bennet walked further in.

Tipton kicked the door to the ticket booth open as Bennet passed it. The old man was holding a shot gun, "Took you long enough. Let me guess, Sebastion's Son?"

Bennet nodded, "You were his friend and you betrayed him."

Tipton laughed,"We were never friends, he hated me almost as much as I hated him. I probably did you a favor by taking him out before you got old enough to slap around."

Bennet glared,"You were no better."

Tipton nodded,"Never claimed to be."

Bennet grabbed him in a telekenetic grasp and hurled him into a trailer.

Before the battle in the field got too intense Adam let out a psychic scream that broke the hypnotic control Bennet had over most of them sending them running in shame while those were here of their own free will noticed how badly they were out numbered and decided it best to leave.

Bennet was unfazed, he had his goal at hand when everyone came back. His hand was wrapped around Tipton's throat as Adam stepped forward, "Take your hands off him if you want out of here alive."

Bennet laughed loudly,"Oh please, none of you can even touch me."

He raised his empty hand and waved sending every one flying in multiple directions. He then rendered Tipton unconscious as he dropped him to deal with the others.

Brian ran at him but slammed into a solid wall of telekenetic force. He tried a second time going twice the speed to no effect. Adam tried desperately to dig into Bennet's mind but was out of his league.

Rob snuck around and attempted to grab him but was caught and rapidly slammed into the ground. Max and Ana's attempts at attack we're equally unsuccessful.

Tipton was roused from his unconscious state by an old crewman, "This is no time for naps my friend."

Tipton looked up groggily,"Henry?"

The old man grinned,"Perhaps I can be of some assistance here."

Henry nonchalantly walked into the fray catching Bennet's attention, "Wrong place wrong time geezer."

Henry shrugged,"So goes the story of my life, I suppose I'll need to stop you."

Bennet chuckled, "Old fool."

Henry paid him no attention as he pulled a small device out of his pocket and made some adjustments to it.Bennet snatched it from him with his power and brought closer to see what it was.

His own telekinesis activated the device which let out a high pitched screech that sent all of those with hyper sensitive hearing to the ground and destabilized Bennet's abilities long enough for Adam to get in his head. Before Adam could shut him down Bennet hurled him away and rose into the air to escape.

Henry walked over and picked up his device dropping it back in his pocket. He looked around,"Look at this mess, It's going to take all night to clean it up. "

Several hours later

After the clean up was done the crew made ready to open as Foxtrot company packed up their gear.

Max and Rob discussed what had happened, "So Psions are real."

Rob tossed a bag into the back of the transport, "Just the one that we know of."

Max nodded, "But one was enough to bring us down with a small army for back up."

Rob replied, "Next time we'll just have to get a large one. What's really bugging me is what Campbell said about Bigfoot."

Max looked curious,"Bigfoot?"

Back in the tent of 'Isis the Cat Woman'

Adam walked in as Samantha was carefully arranging her hair to look like a wild mane,"So much effort to look like you've never used a brush."

She looked back,"It was just the one time, you know?"

Adam nodded,"Before I go I just want you to know I'm not mad anymore."

Samantha sat down,"But you're still going?"

Adam replied, "I don't really belong here, never really did."

Couple of spelling and grammar mistakes eg out numbered instead of outnumbered, there instead of their...nothing major. Bigfoot, catpeople...lets see where this goes

Just a little FYI -- Jane Goodall believes they exist (Big Foot).

As for this chapter -- very, very well done! Bennet is crazy powerful and I love the power-set you gave him.
