The calm before the storm
“And once again Hi_Voltage saved the day, stopping a high speed chase that went on for hours before-“
The television was turned off by Levina, her hand stretched out, holding the remote. Her blond hair was in a mop of a mess as Daniel and Michael yelled out at her, against what she just did. This was something the ‘Voltage Team’ would do after stopping a crime, go back to Daniel’s garage and watch the news about it together. They would get their egos filled of how an awesome trio they have become, even though no one knows about Michael and Daniel, and yet the two still get some sort of excitement from it.
“I was watching that!” Daniel chucked a hand full of popcorn at her.
“And it was getting to the good part!” Michael yelled out pointing at the empty TV screen.
“I’m just tired of hearing about Hi_Voltage.” The teenager grumbled as she pushed herself up from the couch, grasping her sweater at the same time. “I just want to be ME right now and not hear about how awesome Hi_Voltage is.” She slipped her sweater on.
“But YOUR Voltage Levi, if anyone should be getting an ego boost from this… its YOU.” Daniel got up from the couch too.
“OH! Did you hear about the cool little action figures they want to make of you?” Michael blurted out as he whipped out a folded piece of paper from his back pocket. “Ever since you joined Trinity, you’ve become even more popular in the media.” He unfolded the paper, which showed a miniature version of her in the form of a collectible toy.
Rolling her eyes she walked to the door. “I just think with Voltage getting so much media attention… something REALLY bad might happen.”
There was an awkward silence for a few seconds
“Like…?” Daniel asked, concern on his face.
“I don’t know… like… something… REALLY bad.” She shrugged her shoulders, not able to explain what was being thought in her mind.
“Well bring it on I say.” Michael said standing up too. “With the Voltage Team, andtheTrinity, there is NOTHING we can’t do!” He fist pump with a huge grin on his face.
Maybe she was just being silly, overacting. With a chuckle she opened the door. “Good night guys.” She walked out, closing the door behind her.
When it rains it pours; Next day- Jordan High School
Letting out a deep yawn she covered her mouth, as she struggled to focus on the white bored in her computer design class. They’ve been working on a project for the past two day’s on how to make three dimensional symbols. Seemed simple enough, looking around a lot of the students were making symbols of those that belonged to superheroes. Symbol’s of Kurrent, Andferne, Warkiller, Eclipse, Nighthunter and of course… Hi_Voltage. She sighed as she looked at her own, a half made celtic symbol of strength.
“You should have just done HV’s symbol.” Daniel leaned in next to her, he was sitting to the left of her.
“Yeah it would have been WAY easier.” Michael leaned in to the right of her.
The two of them were working on lightning bolt symbols, for Voltage. This was just great, not only does she have to live with Voltage at home, but at school too.
“I want to keep HV’s life separate from mine as much as I can.” She whispered. “I don’t want to forget what it means to be… me.” she spoke, slowly moving her computer mouse.
"But... you didn't like to be you, hence how Voltage was born." Micheal spoke only to get a ball of paper thrown at his face. "ACK!" he glared at Daniel who was giving him a death glare that read 'SHUT UP'.
She sat there for a moment, thinking as she let out a pathetic sigh. “I just want to get through the school day without Voltage being mentioned to me, is that so much to ask?”
The teacher began to write something on the bored. "Now as you can see, if you use your mouse to-"
He was interrupted by screams of teenagers that echoed through the hallways. Through the small window of the door dozens of kids could be seen running as fast as they could. Was it a fire? A fight? Everyone in the class room stood up from their seats as some began to walk to the door, that is until gunfire was heard. Everyone in the class room screamed as they hid underneath their desks, including the trio.
“Everyone stay under your desks!” The teacher yelled out as he began to walk to the door that lead to the hallway. But before he could open it, the door was suddenly kicked in as a large man walked in with a gun in hand.
It was Levina's worst fear come true... an attack on the high school... while she was AT school.
“I know you said you didn’t want to hear her name… but I think we REALLY need Hi_Voltage right now.” Daniel whispered.
