Everything will change whether it's welcomed or not. It is all thrown at us like a constant blur. Last year I was just this young super hero who lived on an Island. I had just loss my brother, and was burying myself deeply into my work to distract myself. I didn't know what I was asking for when I told myself I needed a distraction.
After nearly giving my life to save the Island back when it was being taken over my Vampires I was in this white void for a few weeks. I still have like no clue where the hell I could have possibly been. With the Island sinking the minute I return, and having to move here I haven't had the chance to figure any of that out. Soon though.
Now I have six kids to look after. Yes only one of them is biologically mine, however he is from the future. Just like my clones he is the same age as me. Technically they are more than capable to take care of themselves, yet none of us are sure what any of them are capable of yet. If I'm able to wipe away a whole legion of vampires in seconds it scares me to know what the six of them would be able to do all together.
I just wish Eclipse was alive to see all of this. Maybe minus me being possibly dead for a bit, because I would never want him to feel constantly worried about me. He would get to meet his Nieces and Nephew. Coming from the future Christopher must have known all about the tales I told him growing up about the two of us rising to the top of the super hero chain together. He would get to be there for him when I finally did give birth to him.
It does make me happier than Feral Nova in a cookie factory to see Moonglow come back again. We haven't really seen much of each other since she joined CoP, however I'm willing to make that change. Her death tore all of the Vine Titans up when it happened. She gets a second chance to live again. I must spend as much time as I can with her before anything happens to the two of us. I want her to be in my children's lives.
Children. I can't believe I'm really saying that. I joined this team watching Mistress Redhead multitask being a world famous hero yet manage to have a family with powers. I always will admire her for that. I'm following into her footsteps so fast that I can't even notice it.
All of the squads have changed up a bit. A lot of my teammates have gone up to the other squads. Umbra Sorcerer stayed, however he had been promoted to be my second in command. Being on the squad for a while he could aid me a lot. I watch all of them as the practice in our training room.
My son is standing next to me as he points out a lot of mistakes they are making. I raise him. Of course he'll have an eye for this type of stuff.
I hear a faint noise. Hailing from the distance it gets closer. The only ones in this room are supposed to be the only ones on Avalon really, except for my girls who are watching over Gwen's daughter in this playroom we made for her. Clearly she is way too young for it, but before we know it she'll be able to walk.
"Christopher, can you do me a favor and stay with the girls?" His eyes widened when noting the hint of worry in my tone. "I'll be fine."
I know that while he is away from the fight he'll be telepathically checking to see if we are all alive. He knows me too well to just suddenly send him away like that.
Pressing a button the session quickly ends. Hitting another I speak on the intercom. "Everyone get up here now, and prepare yourselv-"
Before I could even finish an explosion knocks me off of my foot. Opening my eyes I see dust scattered everywhere around the room.
As the smoke clears away I see figures of a large group of people. "We are the Zodiac." A tall man dressed all in blood Red called out. "We are here to kill the Champions of Peace."
