Go on a river cruise
Outside looking at the river
Screams coming from inside
Lefa goes to the doors
Armed men have gathered the people in the center of the room (7)
Smug-looking villain in the centre (1)
Schmuck sees Lefa at window; big boss sends him out
Lefa and I hide near the port hole
And so the combat begins…
Lefa grabs the gun and elbows the schmuck in the forehead. 40 pts. Ouch. He falls. Lefa throws the gun in the river. Bossman sends another 2 outside, leaving 4 aiming their guns at the civilians. He threatens to kill the civvies unless the fighter turns himself in.
I tell the party to suit up and I turn myself in.
The bad guys hit the jackpot. Alessandra Morgan!
The bossman is thrilled that they will never have to work again.
His lackey points out that Celestia with pimp slap them like little bitches for kidnapping her daughter.
They expected to get a few hundred thousand dollars including the boat
I turn his firing pin into tin.
I go first and disable 6&7’s guns. Synergy is outside the door and is preparing to jump in and defend the civvies if necessary. Helix tells Lefa to step back and let us handle it. Gets into place on opposite door.
Bossman tells the captain to set them on their way. Hand over the valuables or else.
Lefa checks the ship for more guys. He finds one on the bridge with the captain and his lackeys. He’s working on moving the ship. Lefa teleports in and grabs at 9. 9 dodges. Lefa teleports away.
I disable 2&5’s weapons. 5 looks a bit gun-happy. Elli seals the starboard door. This should be interesting. Cyrillo goes to front of the ship and around the corner to lie in wait for the minion. Holds second action. Bossman is feeling antsy. He fires a shot at the civvies, which doesn’t work. What? He shoots again at the ceiling and it doesn’t work. I chastise him and he hits me with the gun again. Ooh. Ouch. That so didn’t hurt. But I act as if it does. Lefa notices. On the bridge, the guy looks around and prepares to shoot a hostage. Lefa does it again. Teleports behind him and elbows the minion in the head. He goes down with 40 pts of damage. Lefa teleports back. 3 tries to open the door and it won’t work. 2 goes outside. He goes toward the unc body looking for whomever did it.
I disable 3(not)&4’s guns. Synergy lets the door open once I tell her the guns are disabled. She steps in and poses in the doorway. “Surrender.” Helix casts an illusion of Celestia coming out of her gateway with full on Caraveros behind her. She approaches the Bossman. The minions are scared out of their minds, as is the Bossman. Synergy says “do you surrender now?” And they drop their guns.
That’s when the police show up.
I answer questions after giving the civvies back their possessions.
Synergy and Helix go hide. Lefa watches them and manages to see Synergy change back.
The police find them and put them in cuffs until I vouch for them.
The boat turns around and we make it back to the dock. Mom is waiting with lots of press and telepathically asks me what happened. She gets pissed at the bossman for striking me with us gun. I think he’s going to have a bad day.
You know the headlines are going to focus on Celestia saving us from the bad guys. Elli gets interviewed for her traumatic experience.
It’s quite late when we get back to the dorms. First, we have a conversation with Lefa.
On our way there, Lefa asks us about our secret identities. He saw Elli change and noticed I was not injured by the pistol whipping. I tell him the guy hit like a girl. Elli does not seem amused. He tells us that he has metahuman abilities and aided overthrow his father. He can see through things and ways of moving around quickly. Plus he’s strong. Elli asks if he’s a pervert.
Apparently we are popular amongst the young people in South Africa.
