Sterling silently played with his lighter and his own fire. He was listening intently. He knew the loss of Charles was a tragedy, but he didn't feel he had the right to grieve. He didn't really have the strongest connection with him, despite the years of hero work together. When Avarice asked for their say, Sterling snapped into reality. A rather cool-headed Silver spoke up."Charles's death can't go in vain, I won't let it. And if you didn't even care for your own minion's life, what makes you think you can fool me into believing you honestly give a damn about a citizen? You want money Avarice. Peace or war doesn't mean anything to you. Do you honestly think it went unnoticed that you went for the turf with the most monetary value from the start? Newsflash: It didn't. I won't let you take this city.

And all of you spouting bullshit about mutants and humans should be ashamed of yourselves.

Love, I'm... Fairly confident I was raised as a human, and according to those who claim to be my parents, I was inspired by The Guardians as a teen, so saying the humans hate us all is total bullshit.

Humans aren't exactly helpless, either, sure, I... think I discovered mine to save my life, but not every human is thrown helplessly out of an airplane. My past is as much a mystery to me as this town's future, I'll admit that, but The Shield died before this city fell to you, and I'll die to keep it away from you if I have to as well."
After that short rant, he would go back to playing with a small double helix of silver flames. He would continue listening, but he'd gotten his point across.

"No being friendly with the enemies, right Maicoh?" Michelle laughed.

Michelle sighed and rolled her eyes.

"Cool. So we're back to where we started...nowhere? What the hell was the purpose of your commentary again? And besides when there is someone willing to destroy all that you worked for you would want to stop them. While you just and heroic Guardians choose to not kill the rational Omegas prefer other more permanent means of dealing with situations."

She was quite annoyed and secretly, maybe not so much for those who might understand her in anyway, wanted to snap his neck off.

Maicoh looked at Michelle, grinning, "I said no flirting, which is quite different from being friendly. It's not as if the other side lacks minds. Just don't let your friendliness stay your hand in battle." He shrugged at Kiara, the time for pleasantries apparently over as Sterling piped up. Michelle answered, and Maicoh could sense her annoyance. Seems Guardian's followers weren't going to be the only ones whose patience was being tried.

Waving off what Sterling said, Maicoh stared at Sterling, studying the boy closely. He finally said, after some time debating in his head, "How often must we repeat ourselves? We don't grieve Atom because he was not acting in our interest any longer, and in fact working towards a completely different goal. Why do you think we would grieve Atom becoming rogue and deciding to blow the whole city up? Contrary to what you seem to think, we are not intent on razing it to the ground. As for killing you...we could do so, if need be. Gotta break a few eggs to make an omelette."

Guardian rose from his chair and cut across Maicoh before the boy could bark at Sterling.

Guardian's temper had cooled, but not quite enough. He glanced back to his team and snapped, "Bickering is for children. You are all adults and will act as such." He then looked back toward the Alliance. "Omega and his have made their points clear. We have made our position clear. There is nothing more to do here. If you will excuse us, Love, we will be taking our leave before this nonsense continues further." His steely blue eyes peered from behind his glasses, flashing from one to the other, over the five heroes around him. "Let us waste not a minute further with these..." His lip curled to a snarl. "Criminals."


Fossil lazily rose to his feet, giving off a mock salute as he said, "Aye, sir."


Guardian would lead his team from the room, finding his way out of the mansion the way he had come in. Once they were outside, overlooking the chasm which seemed to stretch on infinitely before them, he would turn to the others. He folded his arms across his chest and cleared his throat, to demand their attention, if anyone was chittering with another.

"I had anticipated this to be Omega's move, though I'm still not quite satisfied with the way the meeting shook out. We will not allow that gang of thieves to exert their sway over any of the good citizens of New Milencia. From today on, all of our efforts will be put toward stopping them from expanding and slowly working to wrest control of the west from Omega's greedy claws."

With a heavy sigh, he tapped a button on his waist and mumbled, "I only wish Avarice would see the err of his ways."

He turned on his heel and marched off toward the edge of the Love Insustries disc as a blue-painted jet floated up over them, dropping open its boarding bridge. "Come," Guardian shouted, "We've no further reason to remain here."


Fossil hung at the back of the group, hands stuffed in his pockets as he gazed out over Milencia's scar. The scar created by Atom, contained by Charles. Both his hands clenched to fists and he shook his head, slowly. "One bad egg my ass," he spat, to no one in particular.

Silver was grateful that Guardian had saved him from more of the Omega's goons' slander. Treating one of their own as an infidel after he perished in battle, even for Atom, that was unforgivable. He got up, and quickly whirled to face away from the table, a small spire of silver flames kicking up in his wake, punctuating his prideful departure.

"What do we do now, Guardian? Without cooperation from the west, our citizens could lose power, and trade may very well fall. While the citizens themselves may cooperate, I fear for the safety of the businesses on both sides. The only options are to replace what they have and expand east, ask for support from outside sources, or attack directly as soon as possible, which a few of us might not be in the mental state for after Charles' death."

Omega glanced around the room and shrugged his shoulders after the Stinger had his say rehashing the same old points he already addressed. He turned his head gingerly towards the boy and smiled with his voice, "Sharp as a tack, aren't we?"

He shrugged gently and walked towards the door as Guardian made his exit on the opposite side.

"I hate to break up your ice cream social, but our business has been attended to."


He ushered the Alliance out of the door and paused in the doorjamb to bow gently to Love and the Mayor.

"Apologies, Love, but I'm afraid you'll have to find other woman to sate your lust this eve. Surely within your harem you can find one suitable to your impeccable standards."

He nodded towards the mayor, "Geoffrey."

With that, he vanished out of the door and into the night.

The streets of West Milencia were war ravaged and torn, as seen through the tinted glass of the limousine that the Alliance had arrived in. Omega laid back in his seat, his chin rested on his hand as his eyes traced over the cityscape.

"Sir?" A gentle voice spoke beside him.

Omega looked over at the petite girl clad in a flattering sleek black dress, though her mask remained on. She pulled it off and folded it gently in her lap, flashing a cute smile, "We're really going to take all of New Milencia, aren't we?"

"Yes, Umbra. That's the ultimate goal, as I've said. Taking key points at key times to weaken their hold on the people. The people are New Milencia's truest strength. Without them, this city will crumble." Omega exposited before catching himself.

Umbra wiggled her feet as she sat, unable to sit still all of a sudden, "So, when do we start?"

Omega nodded and his eyes scanned the Alliance in the limousine with him.
"Soon."

* * * * *

The mayor dabbed his brow, looking over the members of his office who were still left as the heroes and villains exited.

"Oh dear. That Omega is going to make me tear my hair out..."
he grumbled, rubbing his bald dome.

"We'll need to fortify the key locations in East Milencia. Prioritize targets and make sure we have armed guards on twenty-four hour watch."
An older, dignified man with salt and pepper hair named Harris Rampart said.

The Mayor nodded, "Yes. That is true. If only there were a way to ease Omega's hold over West Milencia. He's so entrenched and influential it seems impossible, however..."

He whimpered, pathetically before raising his eyes to Alexander Love, "Ah! Yes! Surely you must have some ideas of what we should attempt, Alexander! Your father was a man born for situations like this. A more brilliant man New Milencia may never know!"

The plump Mayor beamed with pride as he awaited the man's solution.

Alexander nodded his head and followed both groups to the door. " I'm just happy you didn't destroy my building. " he chuckled. Until next time.

Alexander quietly closed the door, and put his left hand in his pocket while he rubbed his chin with the other. He made his way over to where the Mayor stood and listened as he praised his father. " Hah my father... let's not go there mayor. " he sighed and knew that it was time. Time for a change.

" I know exactly what do to Mayor. Distraction is going to be the key, it's time for the people to take back the city of Milencia and show what they are capable of. I have a private jet waiting for us, there is a location I must show you mayor and we'll be there for a couple of days to discuss the plan. So get back to your office and let your secretary and family know you'll be gone for a little while. Pack only a few clothes, I'll have my driver pick you up with my limo and safely take you to the private jet. I as well have to go home and get some thing's. "

Alexander walked over to the door and opened the door for the Mayor. " We'll go down as saviors of Milencia mayor. hurry now. "

He waited for the Mayor to leave before focusing on Michelle, who still sat there.

Mayor Hastings nodded slowly as Alexander spoke, his fuzzy eyebrows folding with the creases of his little, round face in concern.

"Oh, but... people taking back New Milencia... I don't quite understand. I'm sure you will make things clear soon though."


He turned then to the tall man who spoke shortly ago, "Mister Rampart, please do tell my wife that I will be on a business trip with Mister Love, won't you? Also, send an aide to fetch my travel supplies."

Rampart nodded curtly, "As you wish, Mister Mayor. I'll inform Gretchen and have Fred head right over."

He nodded again to Alexander Love, straightened his tie, and exited the room as he drew his phone from his jacket pocket. The Mayor exited as well. Soon the bumbling aid would wobble up to the limo and drop off the Mayor's suitcase. He would be ready to depart whenever Alexander was ready.

Michelle giggled as Omega talked about Love's intent.

"I'm sure there are more women out there who'll do anything for you..."

Michelle paused and then lifted up.

"But I'm assuming that you have a completely different purpose for asking me to stay."

She then turned her head to the nearest window, to look at the view.

"So what is it, Love, that you want?"

----

Quante walked with the group out the door and to the jet.

"That went well." Quante said to himself.

Maicoh seemed unperturbed as Guardian cut across to interrupt him, but naturally stopped nonetheless. Without protest, he left the room once they were ushered out by Omega. He took the same seat in the limo that he had taken earlier, and looked at the floor of the limo, half-listening to Umbra and Omega.

Seems like they would have to come to this after all. A chill ran up his spine at the thought.

Alexander turned to Michelle after escorting the Mayor out. He smiled as he checked her out. He circled the table until he finally stood in front of her.

" You caught my eye, You have this exotic look to you and I like it. I'm sure you know who I am, Playboy, Billionaire Businessman. I can make you a very wealthy girl and I know how much girls love money and spending. "

Alexander reached in his blazer pocket and took out a stack of hundreds. " This is 10 grand, I have a job for you to do that's going to be only between us. You see this plan is very important for the future of this city. I want to be able to trust you and not think twice about it, You accept this and I take care of you for life. "

Alexander stood straight waiting for an answer. " What do you say? "

"Is that right?"

Michelle paused and then followed up with a giggle which ended up with her cold villainous face.

"What's the job? What's the danger level for a normal human from one to five? And what does this have to do with the city if I may ask? I only care for the first two questions, the last is purely for entertainment."

Alexander smiled. " In exactly three hours I want you to go to my mansion, There are a bunch of C4's in a black bag under the bed with a detonation button. I want you to make it look like someone tried to kill me, I then want you to take two of the c4's and place them under the Milencia bridge. I have the detonation button for the bridge and I will detonate that at a certain time. After that I want you to kick back and enjoy the show. But remember don't anything after three hours when the Mayor and I leave.

Alexander smiled. " That should answer one of your questions, as for the other one it would be pretty hard for a human to do without getting caught or seen....but for someone like you it should be simple. Also once I trust you enough, I will tell you the purpose of everything. Until now you get what you earn. "

Questions?

"Nope."

Michelle then proceeded to the door with her final words being...

"We'll keep in touch."

She then made way to the limo and took a seat among the others.

"Sorry. Something about him...and his money made me listen to his sweet nothings."

Alexander proceeded on to his other mansion where Jester awaited him. Alexander immediately spotted the Mayor outside, both men entered the limo and arrived at Love's second mansion. Alexander invited the Mayor inside where he had him sit on his couch while he went upstairs. Alexander entered the room to only find Jester sitting on the bed eating an apple with a dead body beside him...a dead body without a face.

" What in god's name is this? What the fuck are you doing Jester! The fucking Mayor is downstairs!" he whispered. Alexander looked around to only find his bathroom covered with glass, his bed covered with blood, carpet with blood stains. He looked up at Jester who had just got done eating his apple.

Jester

Jester had just got done eating his third apple, he jumped up at the sight of Alexander, knowing he had a job to do. " Don't be a little girl, he's dead. here is the list of where I want these to be hidden, I also included a map so they don't screw up, the items are in the bag and they're spread evenly so be careful. I'll go through the back and chat with the limo driver...and by chat I mean kill. " Jester chuckled softly, a laugh that sent a chill down Alexander's spine. " Give me a few minutes while I have my fun with the driver then send the Mayor. " Jester slowly walked over to the window and crawled down carefully.

Alexander

Alexander made his way to where the Mayor was, he had the black bag that Jester gave him. He set the bag down extra carefully and approached the Mayor. " All righty Mayor, meet me in the limo I have one small email to send and we're on our way. "

The Mayor entered the limo and as soon as he closed the door, he would find himself locked. The tinted window in front of him slowly opened.

Jester


" Howdddddy Mayor, Well bad news for you, your flight has been cancelled. hahhahhahahahahhaha " Jester threw a sleep grenade between the mayors leg and quickly closed the tinted window between them. The Mayor would find himself asleep for several hours after inhaling the sleeping gas. Jester waited a few minutes for the mayor to stop struggling, afterward he took off his mask and saw himself through the rear view mirror...anger built up inside him that made him punch the rear view mirror several times until it fell.

" Why the fuck does everything have to have a god damn mirror " And the limo left.








Alexander

Alexander dialed 911 after the limo left.

" Please.....help me......." Alexander hung up the phone and went to the downstairs bathroom, he moved his head back and struck his face onto the mirror repeatedly until he had no energy left to move. He felt the blood run down to his nose and mouth. he collapsed on the floor.

Guardian smiled at young Sterling's inquisitive mind as the group boarded the Guardians' jet. He said, "For now, we sit. At first, we will react to Omega's plans. We have no need to lash out. As far as psychologically, Charles' death has impacted us quite severely, but, well, I doubt it would do much less than motivate us to do our very best under the circumstances."


Guardian addressed the group once they were all within the jet and it had taken off. "I've locked in the jet to take us back to Nathan's apartment. His fiancee has graciously agreed to host us for an hour or so if anyone needs to blow off some steam after getting quite so riled by Omega's gang."



-----


Shortly after these events, a 9-1-1 call came in to the police station.

The chief of police, a man by the name of Albert Praesent, answered the call. Three words. They picked up the location as Alexander's second mansion, and Albert immediately dispatched a (small) team of first responders to get on the scene as soon as possible.

Once that was handled, he pulled out his personal cellphone and tapped the speed dial button which would patch him through to his close colleague, Johnathan.



-----


As the Guardians' ship came to a rest above Nathan's apartment complex, Guardian's communicator rang. He flipped it to his ear and asked, "Al? What's wrong?"

>"It's Love. Called for help. I dispatched a team, but I figured you ought to know, too, in case you wanted to help."<

"Thanks for the heads-up," Guardian said before hanging up.

He looked over the rest of the group and said, "Love's in trouble. Shouldn't take more than one or two of us to handle the situation. Any volunteers?"



Fossil groaned and tossed a hand in the air. "I'll go, if you really need to send somebody. Lord knows Love can't defend himself. Somebody's got to."


-----


It wouldn't be long before there would be a rap on Love's mansion's door, as the police had arrived. The man at the lead shouted, "Milencia P.D.! Open up!"

Sterling blinked when Guardian mentioned Love calling for help and put on a puzzled look. "Okay, my memory and sense of time is pretty terrible, but, wouldn't that mean he's gone and gotten himself in the past fifteen minutes? A bit suspicious if you ask me. Then again, that just gives me all the more reason to go, so I guess I'm in if we need it, if not, I'll just let some fire off in the air. He exhaled in a plume of flames, which, with its silver tint, almost looked like smoke, he found this amusing and laughed.

"Ah, you guys are finally back." The driver of the limousine was none other than Allan. Once all the members of the Omega Alliance were inside the luxury vehicle, Allan would drive back to their headquarters as fast as the engine would allow. "Y'know, it's nice knowing no one's stupid enough to cut off the Omega Alliance's limo in our territory. Traffic's still a bitch over here, this close to East Milenica. We should fix that soon." Adjusting the rear view mirror in order to get a proper glance at Omega, Allan then nodded and gave a smug smile to his boss. "So chief, how soon is soon?"

Omega tapped his fingertips against the door rhythmically as he turned the question over in his head from Spectre.

"No doubt by now every area is under high guard. They're anticipating a quick strike, so soon after the meeting. However, letting it stew overnight may be best. Our first target is going to be the school in East Milencia. It's not the closest thing to West Milencia, so likely a more lax guard is being taken there. Anticipating we strike closer to the rift than further."

He flipped his hand casually as he spoke, "Volunteers?"

Umbra popped her hand up in the air, slamming it into the roof of the limo, which elicited a yelp of pain from the girl.

Omega chuckled deeply and shook his head, "Alright. So that's one. Team two is going to come with me as we cause a distraction over at the hospital instead. It should allow the strike team to get in there without much issue."

Omega stretched out as best he could, his eyes falling to each of the faces around him, "Which team would you rather be on? First come first serve."

The radio crackled loudly after he spoke, police chatter blathering on incoherently. Omega motioned for Spectre to shut the radio off for the time being.

Maicoh listened quietly as Omega explained their plan. His words stirred a bitter taste in the wolfman's mouth. A school? Whatever quarrel they had was with the Guardians, not kids. He really was coming to not agree with their choice of tactics, but quickly answered, "I'll be part of the distraction team. Someone like me attracts a lot of attention anyways."

His thoughts would probably come across very clearly, but he didn't care.
