-And you are?-
-"Great, it's my job to watch over you and you get stabbed!"- The stranger jumps down from above, as he lands the gangsters and woman all faint and fall to the floor.
-"Looks like I haven't learned to fully suppress my power yet, but anyways I have to work quickly!"-
He sits Francy up and touches him where his open wound is.
-*Gasp*"Where am I? And who the hell are you?"-
Asked Francy frantically as he woke up to this tall man with long, disheveled Blonde hair and eyes hidden behind dark wraparound sunglasses.
-"My name is Echoes, I'm here to watch over you. I watched as you tried to defend the young lady from those thugs, very brave if I must say." Echoes stands up and digs through the inside of his long dark-grey trench coat.
Francy stands up but he is in pain from the stab wound and falls right back down, he looks at his stomach and looks at all the thugs, the woman and the pool of blood around him -"What are you a stalker? And I was stabbed wasn't I?"
Echoes pulls out a mask from inside his trench coat and tosses it at Francy –"Here, this is for you. If you put it on and notice something "different" when you wear it, then you can keep it. Doesn't seem like much, but if you are the right guy, you can be what this city needs in order to change."
-"Change this city? But I just moved here yesterday! Why should I care about it when others don't even give a damn about it? And what is a stupid mask going to change? I'm not even an Alpha! I can't fly or lift up cars with my mind!"- Shouted Francy as he stared at the black glossed mask with no eye-holes.
-"I can't exactly tell you right now, you wouldn't believe me hehe." As Echoes starts walking away, his figure disappeared in the blinding light of the sun. –"And do me a favor, try to get lost a lot less please."
Francy blinks and he finds himself at the front doors of Hinode University, and he looks around and sees the young woman from the alley still unconscious but sitting up against a wall.
-"What the? Hey wait, what time is it?"- he looks at his watch and sees that he's ten minutes late for his first class, he tries carrying the young woman to the front steps and shouts to somebody for help. Within minutes an ambulance arrives and takes the young woman to the nearest hospital.
As Francy rushes to his first class and takes a seat, he wishes that what happened was a dream, but he has a bloodied hole in his shirt and a mask in his bag to remind him of the events of that morning. He will never forget this day, the day he gets a shot to change the corrupt City of Hinode.
