Hero's Comeback

Fantasy / Action

Chapter 1

"Another day another dollar." I thought as I rolled over to reach for my phone. Being a super villain for hire is the new booming business. Super heroes contact your handler with their request and they in turn contact you. The set up could be anything from a simple mugging to a terrorist attack. Wannabe heroes paid good money to get their face on the news. If only the world knew that these heroes they idolized paid to have hundreds killed for their own gain. With my help of course.

"Sebastian here." I answered.

"Morning Bast its Lisa." As if I wouldn't recognize her voice. Or how annoyingly chipper she was first thing in the morning.

"You should really stop calling me Bast. I've skinned people for less you know." I replied without much enthusiasm. Once you threaten someone and don't follow through the threat is ruined.

"Yeah, yeah you've told me several times about how you kill every handler that works for you at some point. Remember you hired me while you were in the process of chopping off Katie's head with a butter knife. That was wicked by the way."

I sighed into the phone at Lisa's response. Girl was absolutely out of her mind but damn she was great for business. If she wasn't making me so much money I might be more inclined to murder her. Business before villainy I reminded myself.

"What do you have for me Lisa? It's got to be a quick one. You know I have that nursery to blow up at 2:00pm." Not every job had to be intricate. Some heroes just wanted to show up and save the day. At exactly 2 o'clock the place would blow sky high. Of course the hero would have conveniently been in the area and noticed a gas leak. Leaving him plenty of time to evacuate and get people to safety. A few kids and staff would be left in the building. Better publicity if not everyone makes it.

"Bast you'll absolutely love this one I promise!" The glee in her voice would terrify most people. It was music to my ears. Whenever Lisa gets excited about a job it's absolutely....messy.

"I'm all ears."
