The Samaritan Snare!

Post by Mercury on Thu May 10, 2018 4:47 pm

It was a beautiful day, lovely, and Roy having nothing else to do was out for a stroll through the shopping district to spend money he didn't have. He was covertly starting to scout for a job, as the money after school would make a great addition to his already formidable allowance of forty bucks a month, but he was saving all of that for gas money for his bike. For now he would stop and take a seat at a corner cafe and watch the people pass, it was quite a spectacle. It was quite something else to see this many people in one place, and since it was early on a Saturday there was quite a bit of activity, shops were buzzing and the street noise was loud. So it was good to stop and take it all in, or so the young platinum blonde haired boy thought, as he rested with his chair's back against the shop window and breathed a half frustrated sigh and a half relaxed sigh.

"God, today's going to be boring and pointless as usual isn't it?" He mused to himself, he would soon find out exactly who wrong he was.

It really was a beautiful day out.  There were only a few clouds out and the sun was nice and warm with the slightest breeze.  A great day to have off of work.  Or so most people would think.  Byron was never one who liked sitting still.  He was busy most of his life helping with housework and helping support his financially impaired family.  As such, he felt more uneasy on days off than when he was working.  He needed the day off anyway.  He had been meaning to buy some new clothes after his shirt got wrecked during the little prank him and his friends pulled in the cafeteria, but he had neither the time nor money.  He would just get something simple, something cheap.  Just enough to hold him over.  "Let's see, I don't normally go shopping around here, so where would be good?"  Byron had been wandering a good 45 minutes now and had yet to find a good shop.  He never really took the time to explore the shopping district before, so he didn't know his way around either.  "Maybe a mall? I have no idea where that would even be though."  Byron frowned, troubled and mildly frustrated.  He continued down the way, still searching for a shop within his budget.

Those thoughts and words about a lazy day would come back to bite the two young heroes in the ass in a short order as Byron passed across the street from Roy who was more minding his flip phone than actually looking around. The hustle and bustle of the street would be sharply broken with the shrill feminine voice piercing the relative peace

"HELP! THAT GUY JUST STOLE MY PURSE!"

The cry for help caused Roy's eyes to come up from his phone, snapping it shut and in a motion practiced a hundred times, slide into his pocket without even looking. He sprung to his feet, his eyes darting around looking for the source through the crowd, which wasn't hard for the tall athletic boy as his eyes locked in on a woman in a skirt and jacket pointing at a man in a hoodie and skinny jeans running away from her, further down the street from the girl.

Roy would take off like a shot instantly tripping over a table from the same little cafe where he'd stopped ending up face planting as the thief was navigating the crowd in question!

Byron continued down the street, perhaps lost, and passed a cafe where a boy with platinum blonde hair sat.  He had no idea things were about to get hectic.  All of the sudden, Byron heard a woman shout, "HELP! THAT GUY JUST STOLE MY PURSE!"  He turned to the source and saw the woman pointing towards a shady man sprinting away from the scene.  "Oh boy, well, as good a time as any to see if I really am cut out to be a hero."

Just as he was about to take off, he heard a loud crash from the cafe.  He turned back to see a boy, probably not much older than himself, face down on the ground.  He had apparently tripped over a table, and there were a few people gathered wondering what was going on.  Just what was going on today?!  Byron decided he had to chase the purse snatcher now otherwise he'd never catch up.  He felt bad for the boy but there were enough people around where he should get some help.  

Byron pushed his way through the crowd, just barely keeping an eye on the thief through the people.  Byron was starting to catch up, but then the guy ducked into an alleyway.  Without hesitating, Byron jumped into the alley to continue the pursuit.

Scrambling to his feet and quickly dusting his face off Roy would take off in the direction of the purse snatcher, light on his feet he would be able to quickly navigate through the crowd of people, his eyes focusing on Byron a few yards in front of him, and realizing that there was no way he'd caught up to the purse snatcher that quickly assumed that the similarly light haired boy was pursuing the errant thief like he was!

When Byron turned down into the alley, Roy followed now nearly on his heels! Both boys blew past a man in a trench coat and fedora leaning against the wall opposite of the one they'd run parallel to for the last yards! A man that was the lynch pin of the trap. The man would step into the mouth of the Alley behind the two boys.

At the far end of the Alley stood the thief, facing the two heroes as they entered. The opposite end of the alley was fenced off and all sorts of thugs and miscreants stood in the alleyway.

Roy slid to a stop almost half way down the alley, his eyes darting from person to person to person, each and every one of them had a weapon of some sort, a knife, a chain, a baseball bat wrapped with barbed wire... what kind of a psycho wraps a baseball bat with barbed wire?

And to top it all off, walking into the alley behind them was the woman that screamed about her purse, her face was turned up in a smile, but in her hands was a snub nosed revolver, and at her flank were some more serious looking goons including the man in the trench coat and fedora. "My heroes!" The woman scoffed, at the two sarcastically, throwing her nose up at the notion.

Byron and Roy were surrounded.

Before Byron had noticed, the boy he saw make a face-plant was already running neck-and-neck with him.  Whoever this guys was, he was certainly tough, and strong.  From the looks of it he was also chasing the thief.  That was when he noticed the thief had stopped at the end of the alley and turned towards him.  Something was up.  He stopped running, and so did Roy, evidently noticing it too.  More thugs appeared form around the corners.  Byron looked behind him and saw a man in a fedora and a trench coat as well as the woman that had called out for help.  However, she now had a rather maniacal look on her face, exclaiming "My heroes!" rather sarcastically.  

Byron clicked his tongue, "A trap, huh?"  Not good.  They were all armed and had the two boys outnumbered.  Worst of all, one had a gun.  Hopefully the boy with him knew how to fight, or best case scenario was a super himself.  "Well this is a problem.  We're at a severe disadvantage here.  Any idea what we should do in a situation like this?"  Byron asked Roy.  Byron had dealt with school bullies before and the occasional lone thug, but nothing this big. Byron prepared himself in a semi-defensive position.

Looking over his shoulder and then back at the woman, then around him. Addressing his impromptu partner Roy would open his mouth. "Uhh... I dunno." He could feel the tingle of Quicksilver under his skin ready to go. "I guess we could try to talk our way out of it?"

Roy would turn and put his hands up. "I don't think you know exactly what you're doing we're heroes after all. And I don't think you want to piss on the foundation..."

The woman holding the gun would scoff and look at the man in the trench coat. "God that one's annoying. Do you really need both alive?"

The man in the trench coat would look at the pair of super powered individuals then back to the woman. "I need two bodies, living breathing bodies are better."

"Good." The woman raised the pistol and pulled the hammer back in one motion, fast enough for Roy's eyes to go wide in realization.

BANG!

Sparks and blood, Roy's body would collapse backwards with a blood leaking from his forehead. His eyes closed as he lay there, his body twitching for a second before falling still, as a crimson river rolled down off his forehead into his platinum hair.

"Fuck it I'll take the loss in pay on this one." The woman said as she turned the pistol on Byron, having found satisfaction in snuffing out Roy's life. Pulling the trigger quickly the hammer would fall and

BA-KABOOM!

The woman would scream as the cheap .38 special exploded in her hand.

"Moron." The man in the coat and fedora scoffed. "Roddie." He addressed to one of the punks at the other end of the alley way, past Byron. "Beat this punk into submission then take both of them to the warehouse." With that he would turn and leave.

With his departure the remaining thugs around Byron would close in, ready to follow the orders the mysterious stranger had given, with two more thugs closing in from the open end of the alleyway pinning Byron in and making sure he was hopelessly outnumbered!

His makeshift partner decided they would try to talk it out first.  It was clear they were outnumbered, so talking was probably the most likely way to get out of this.  Even if Byron was a super, and he had no idea if his partner was, they would have a hard time fighting them off.  In response to their pleas to just talk, the woman fired her gun sending a bullet straight into Roy's head.  Byron watched in horror as the boy fell backwards onto the ground, blood streaming from his head.  She then turned her gun to Byron and was promptly shot herself, as the goons surrounded him.  

"Dammit.  They really went that far.  Shit shit shit."  Byron let his body temperature drop dramatically, reaching the levels of liquid nitrogen, and prepared himself to charge.  At least there was no more threat of guns with one dead and the other leaving.  As he breathed, the air would freeze momentarily, causing a steam to roll off his lips when he breathed out.  His body was solid as ice, and took on a bluish tint.  

Byron took off, rushing a guys with a knife.  The thug took a slash, but Byron dodged in time, grabbing the mans wrist.  As soon as Byron touched him, the thugs arm began to freeze.  The knife dropped from his hand as he screamed in terror.  Byron was about to finish him off with a punch but another thug with a bat was about to swing at him.  Byron flung the first thug around, so he would take the hit and immediately followed up with a punch straight to the second thugs face.  The impact sent him flying and caused half of his face to freeze.  

As Byron was about to move onto the next target, a chain was flung around his right forearm.  The thug obviously knew how to use it as it had already wrapped his arm tight and he couldn't pull away.  However, contact with his skin caused the chain to become brittle and he broke it on the wall, causing the thug to stagger backwards.  That distraction was enough where another one managed to sneak up on him and smack him on the back with a bat, causing him to fall to the ground.  He was rushed by a man with a knife which Byron barely managed to catch in his hand.  He held the fist with the knife in his hand, but the blade had cut through the top of his hand between his middle and ring fingers.  Byron threw the man to the ground, causing his frozen hand to shatter upon impact.  

Byron winced in pain from his hand and back as others were closing in around him.  There was no way he could fight them all off on his own.
