Jethro sprints through the streets of New York.
Jethro: Oh god"¦
Jethro runs into an alley way.
Jethro grabs his head and slides down the wall, next to the dumpster.
Jethro: What the hell is happening?
Jethro buries his face into his knees, and tries to wrap his arms around them.
Jethro wrapped his left arm around his knee, but his right hand seems stuck against the wall.
Jethro: The hell?
Jethro looks at his hand.
Jethro tries to pull his hand off.
Jethro pulls with all his strength, ripping off a chunk of the wall bigger than his hand.
Jethro: What"¦ The hell"¦?
Jethro tries to pull his hand off, but it won't budge.
Jethro grabs the wall, and slowly slips it off of his fingers. This reveals hooking talons on his fingers.
Jethro looks at his talons.
Jethro stands up and looks at the wall.
Jethro takes his taloned fingers and presses them against the wall. The talons sink into it.
Jethro: Here goes nothing"¦
Jethro pulls himself upwards.
Jethro: I could barely do a push-up or pull-up before"¦ now it's freakin easy.
Jethro puts his feet to the wall.
Jethro sees a hole in his shoes, where a talon is sticking out of each hole.
Jethro: Greeaaaatt"¦ those were new.
Jethro looks up.
Jethro: Only one way to go"¦
Jethro takes his hand out of the wall and onto the wall, but higher.
Jethro starts to climb, slowly but surely.
Jethro continues to climb.
Jethro grabs the ledge of the building with both hands, lifts himself into the air, and handsprings to his feet.
Jethro looks at his taloned hands.
Jethro: This is crazy.
Jethro looks over the ledge.
Jethro: Now how do I get down"¦?
Jethro curses to himself.
Jethro gets in a ready-stance.
Jethro: Let's see what else I can do eh?
Jethro sprints to the end of the rooftop.
Jethro leaps off of the rooftop.
Jethro: This might have not been such a good idea.
Jethro starts to plummet to the busy street.
Jethro flips into the air until he comes to a stop, his front facing the street. Suddenly, Jethro starts to glide.
Jethro glides into an alley way.
Jethro: Oh god"¦ I'm a mutant aren't I?
Jethro grits his teeth and closes his eyes.
Jethro: I have seen what they do to mutants in this country"¦ where do I go? Where!?!
Jethro shivers and then thinks for a minute.
Jethro: I know"¦
Jethro takes off running.
To Be Continued"
Jethro runs through the yard of a mansion.
Jethro: Hhhh"¦ hhh"¦ h"¦ hh..
Jethro jumps up into the air, landing on the wall. He tries to climb up, but suddenly, when he accidentally touches himself, his talons retract.
Jethro: Oh"¦ crap.
Jethro falls to the bushes.
Jethro gets out of the bushes and dusts himself off.
Jethro: Now how do I get those things out aga-
Suddenly, the talons come out once more.
Jethro: Okay"¦ that works.
Jethro shrugs and jumps onto the wall.
Jethro: Hooooo"¦ still gotta get used to this whole"¦ climbing up walls thing.
Jethro is able to scale the wall, and get to a window.
Jethro bangs on the window.
A teenager comes to the window. He has short, brown hair, is quite muscular, and has piercing blue eyes. Almost glowing. He is wearing a t-shirt that looks like a flag, and jeans. He opens up the window.
Teenager: What? Are stairs too good for cousin Jethro?
The Teenager speaks with a heavy British accent.
Teenager: Ah my man, what's up?
Jethro quickly retracts his talons and grabs the Teenager's hand. The Teenager helps him inside.
The Teenager points at the holes in his shoes.
Teenager: What's up with the holes"¦?
Jethro: Jethro: Were you at the"¦ field trip Brian?
The Teenager, named Brian, shakes his head.
Brian: But I heard how you beat the hell out of Ray!
Brian raises his hand for a high-five, but Jethro just sits down on a chair in his bedroom.
Jethro: This is not a good thing Brian.
Brian shrugs and lies on his bed.
Brian: Why exactly?
Jethro looks at his hands.
Jethro: Okay, I'm going to show you something"¦ but you have to promise not to tell anybody.
Jethro: Promise me!!
Brian: I guess.
Jethro: This is not a joke man!
Brian: Okay! Okay!! I get it, just don't take off your underpants okay?
Jethro takes a deep breath.
Jethro: Here goes"¦
Brian: What is it alrea-"¦Oh"¦
Jethro has jumped to the wall and then stuck on the ceiling, using his talons.
Brian tries to say something but almost falls.
Jethro, in one jump, is on the bed, grabbing Brian.
Jethro: I gotcha.
Brian: ARE YOU FREAKIN SERIOUS!??!
Brian: YOU CAN STICK TO WALLS!
Brian: THAT'S AMAZING MAN!
Jethro: Sure"¦ I guess"¦
Brian: What could you possibly say that for?
Jethro: Of course you would say it's awesome.
Brian: Yeah, cause it is!
Jethro: No"¦ it isn't"¦ I just lost the only chance I had at a semi-normal life.
Brian: You have superpowers!! I don't care if you want a normal life! THIS IS AMAZING!
Jethro's eyes start to well up with tears.
Jethro: Save this superheroing stuff for the people who like to save people from fires and LIKE to get punched in the face by super powered villains"¦
Jethro wipes the tears away.
Jethro: I just want normal.
Brian: We are the opposite of normal, Jethro.
Jethro rolls his eyes.
Brian: We are freakin British guys that transferred here when we were kids! We have a higher grade score than most people! I mean your parents even d-"¦I"¦ I meant"¦
Jethro thins his eyes.
Brian: I didn't mean it like that Jethro!
Jethro: It doesn't matter.
Jethro walks to the window.
Jethro: I just needed to tell someone about this"¦
Brian: Hey Jet"¦
Brian: Stay cool"¦ alright?
Jethro jumps from the window.
Jethro: I'll stay cool.
Jethro stands up and sprints away from the mansion.
