'Listen to your trainer Suzanne,' her Dad advised sternly. 'And pay attention....you know the slightest things distracts you.'
'And bore you,' Mum added.
Suzanne let her spoon down a little firmer than usual. 'Um...can we not do this...? I'm trying to eat and if I don't eat I could run late on my first day.'
Her twin brother laughed from the living room. 'You mean they shouldn't lecture you on being a complete failure and disappointment?'
Suzanne clenched her teeth. 'Shut up Shane,' she growled.
Well in a mild way it was true.
'You know what? I'm off. It's not a crime to turn in early,' she stood up and headed out.
Her mum hugged her tightly and showered her with kisses. 'Make mama proud!'
Suzanne squirmed. 'Mum let go...!'
Her dad just stood by, strictly analyzing her. 'Behave there Suzanne.'
'Goodbye loser!' Shane yelled as she left the house and slammed the door.
That was annoying. I'll show them! I can and will be the best hero ever.
With those encouraging thoughts she marched, full of determination, into the shining sunrise. Hope filled in her heart, courage shimmering in her eyes, the wind blowing in her hair.....
And then she tripped on her loose shoelace.
'Ow...!' she groaned as she fell flat on her face.
She had to go back to change her outfit. Suzanne angrily walked back home.
She was met with:
'Why hello loser!' Shane booed.
'Honey what happened?!' Mother asked, concerned.
'Seems the hero league rejected her. I would.' Dad smirked, looking her over skeptically.
'I JUST RETURNED TO CHANGE MY OUTFIT!!' Suzanne yelled as she face palmed herself.
'Ha! Loser!' her brother scoffed still, eyeing her disapprovingly.
Suzanne O'Izzy was kinda a wimp in most sense. Though she doesn't get bullied or all that other stuff but trouble just finds its way to her in the most unexpected ways imaginable.
Generally as a rule in every school, once students get to a certain form, they are tried and tested to ascertain if they are hero material then they are transferred to Superhero high in one of the schools where they are trained majorly to protect inocent citizens.
Thanks to this establishments, the crime rate dropped considerably as various heroes are sent on missions to stop the bad guys. Whether a cat got stuck in the tree or there's a robbery at the jewelry store or a family receives a note of kidnap to pay a ransome, the heroes were always there to save the day.
Now when it was Suzanne's form's turn to take the test, both written, field and oral, a major crisis occurred as most of the heroes were having a face off with the rogue heroes: they were once heroes but they became disloyal to the hero league.
The battle went on for months. As a result of the new development prospective students in that particular year weren't able to take the test. It was then decided that all the students in Suzanne's form will be given admission on scholarship.
Suzanne was relieved for there was no way she'd have passed the test and then she'd be condemned to live a normal and unexciting life.
In a way, the crisis was sort of her miracle into getting into Superhero high without lifting a finger. Though her Dad wasn't too happy about the way she got in, yet irrespective of his opinion, she was a hero trainee.
And she was going to prove that scholarship or not, she belonged there.
'Your dad's dropping you off Andrew,' his mum said from the doorway of his room.Andrew, busy with coding on his laptop, didn't turn to acknowledge her as he remained seated at his desk.'I don't need a ride,' he replied not looking back once.'Whether you need it or not is no one's business....be down in ten minutes!' his mum ordered and stormed off, her perfume wafting after her as she left.He groaned. Guess my coding can wait till later. He thought as he shut down his laptop. While the robots he invented got his things ready he looked out the window.A brunette was marching down the streets when she suddenly slipped on her shoe lace.He face palmed himself, such a klutz.., he scoffed. He recognized her all right. They attended classes together in Milton High. If it wasn't for the scholarship, hero-wannabes like her could never get in.He looked
Ryan blasted electricity through his hands gadget again. The training holograms faded away.He smirked. He had beaten his high score again.'Bravo Master Ryan,' his butler nodded curtly from the training room doorway. 'What is it Greg?' Ryan asked.Greg was not bothered by the cold tone, he was rather used to it. 'Your ride is waiting downstairs if you please.' Ryan still continued practicing. 'What's my agenda today?' he asked without stopping what he was doing.The whole room got shaken by an electric current.'Well sire, you have an appointment with the hero league management in Superhero high,' Greg disclosed. 'In another term, a school.'Ryan stopped. 'I see,' he finally said.'Prepare my usual coffee and I shall have it picked up downstairs,' he instructed. Greg nodded curtly. 'Very well Master Ryan.'
Suzanne entered the bus provided by the hero league.It was filled with people she knew...well most of them were are classmates. It was calming to see a few familiar faces.'Who would have thought Suzanne would make the cut?!' a loud girly voice snickered.Scratch that familiar-faces-thought for a second.Suzanne turned slowly and came face to face with her worst nightmare.Annabelle.Seated on the row next to hers.'Annabelle,' she regarded coolly. Annabelle snorted. 'I thought I had gotten rid of you when it was time to submit our application forms.'Suzanne clenched her fists.Annabelle had played a nasty trick on her during the period of the submission of their application forms to the hero league schools. The representatives were already running out of pati
Once the bus arrived she rushed out.'Hey Suzanne! Hold on a sec!' Justin was saying, trying to quickly get out but his bag strap which was hooked to a random iron. Other people got out too.Annabelle snickered as she passed Justin, who was trying to untangle himself. He scowled at her, annoyed. Yes, she was truly mean.~~~Suzanne stood at the entrance, hesitant and unsure. She didn't realize it earlier but everyone right from the bus had on a certain color of uniform.Why hadn't she been given one?She took a deep breath and stepped into the gigantic crystal building dazzling in the warmth of the morning sun. It was quite huge and there was no other settlement in sight.Just a lot of different training grounds and other buildings belonging to the hero league.Suzanne took in a deep breath. This is it! She thought pr
As she crouched there bemoaning her fate, someone who was running tripped on her, causing them both to tumble on the floor.'Hey!' she cried.The guy huffed as he dusted himself. 'What were you doing back there, weirdo?!' he fired at her angrily.Suzanne looked the other way as she humph-ed at him.'I was thinking like a normal person when you came rushing like an animal--- Hey!' she faced him. 'What did you just call me fatso?!' Suzanne scoffed as she dusted herself.Ethan huffed again. Girls were nothing but a bother!'Fatso?! You're so dumb! The puff is from the armored suit I'm wearing.''Say what you want fatso,' she replied.Ethan fired her a nasty look. He looked away proudly. 'Anyway I don't have time for the likes of you. I'm a Slad now, so that means you're looking at one of the super gre
Lots and lots of strange faces. She felt like a little fish in a big pond, luckily she sighted Justin the guy from earlier. And he had not been unfriendly.'Hey Suzanne!' he waved at her. She stood by him. 'Hey! What's going on?' she asked.He smiled. 'Nothing much. The instructor was just briefing us on the rules of this place and explaining the different rankings of a hero. And Slads like us too. Besides where'd you run off to?' he asked.Suzanne scratched her head. 'Umn....Sorry I kinda got mixed up in all the excitement of arriving here. I guess I just kind of ran off.' Justin laughed warmly.'No worries. Besides what did you do to that blondie over there? The girl from the bus?' he pointed discreetly so she wouldn't see him. 'She's been glaring at you every two minutes since you ran in.'Suzanne had a good idea of who it might be.'Does she o
This was a huge mistake. Suzanne's feet refused to move.'O'Izzy please join your team mates,' the instructor told her, a bit annoyed. 'Um....you're...you're sure those are my er ....squad?' Suzanne asked uncertainly.He looked quite irritated now.Andrew scoffed, not looking up from his book. Ryan didn't even glance at her or look in her direction. Only Ethan waved. 'Oy! Over here!''That, O'Izzy is your squad for sure now stop asking rather dumb questions!' the instructor replied sternly and stopped what he was doing briefly to focus his undivided attention on her.Suzanne gulped. 'Kay,' in a small voice, noticing that every one was now staring at her. She felt several jealous eyes of the other girls piercing her as she remained rooted to the spot.She walked towards them and it seemed like slow motion as she moved.She fina
'Silverstin?!' Suzanne quipped, amazed.The guy that stood before them was the hero league's best student. It was rumored that he had worked for Shades for a while but his power was too much for them to contain and in order not for him to be eaten up by darkness he was sent back to the hero league since they'd assumed being around his mates would bring out his positive side.Nothing changed.He was the most popular hero. Even new born babies knew his name.But he was rumored to be strict and rules-abiding. He also didn't do anything fun.He was a Rolex. His powers weren't fully known yet but so far, he could turn people within a sixty mile radius into ice. He mainly dealt with ice-based things.When he was still a kid, about three different series of painful experiments were run on him by his dad, who worked for the rogue heroes.He
