Super Fire Dragon Gets Some Seoul
« on: December 28, 2015, 03:39:20 AM »
This story takes place a short while after "Where Have All The Heroes Gone:  #6 - Blue Side".  So you might want to read that first.

"I have a job for you."  Ms. Liberty said sitting behind her desk in her office as Super Fire Dragon walked in.
"So you're no longer mad about that incident while you were away?"  SFD asked.
"Don't remind me.  Dragon, I need to send you to South Korea."  Ms. Liberty said.
"Are you mad, woman?"  SFD exclaimed.
"Dragon."  Ms. Liberty said sternly.
"I mean, are you frigging mad, boss?"  SFD explained.
"Never mind, anyway, Dragon you are internationally known.  It's about time you spread your wings."  Ms. liberty said.
"I spread my wings everyday."  SFD said before Ms. Liberty could realize what she said.
"Dragon, you know what I mean.  You need to broaden your sphere of influence."  Ms. Liberty said.
"Ok, I'll do it."  SFd said.

Super Fire Dragon gathered his essential possessions as he packed for his South Korean trip.
“Hello, Flower Night.”  SFD said into the phone after she answered.
“Super Fire Dragon, it has been a long time, what’s up?”  Flower Night replied.
“I need your help with an extremely dangerous task.”  SFD explained.
“Wow, what is it?”  Flower Night asked.
“Meet me at my apartment on Talos Island, and bring cheese.”  SFD ordered.
“Righto!”  Flower Night responded.
After hanging up the phone, Super Fire Dragon looked up the number and dialed.
“Dev!  How they compiling?”  SFD greeted the voice on the other end.
“Dragon, what is it now?”  Developer 13 asked.
“I’m working on something big, big you understand, big.”  SFD answered.
“Oh, sounds interesting, what is it?”  Developer 13 asked.
“Did I say, ‘big’?”  SFD asked.
“Yes, Dragon, what is it?”  Developer 13 was growing impatient.
“Come to my apartment, I can’t talk over-the-phone, if you know what I mean.”  SFD said winking.
“Well, ok, I’ll be there within the hour.”  Developer 13 said.
“It’s 5 till.”  SFD informed.
“Oh, well in that case, gimme twenty minutes.”  Developer 13 said.
“Ok, bye.”  SFD hung up the phone.  “Who else should I call, ah?”  SFD thought to his self.
“Dragon, what do you want?”  Dr. Wos asked.
“You must have CallerID© or something.”  SFD stated.
“Yes, I have CallerID©.”  Dr. Wos replied.
“And you answered the phone anyway, you are a true friend.”  SFD cooed.
“Dragon, I’m about to hang up the phone.”  Dr. Wos threatened.
“Ok, ok, I need your help, how fast can you get here?”  SFD asked.
“Well, will the Paragon Avenger be there?”  Dr. Wos asked.
“Nope.”  SFD snapped.
“Will Necrophillia be there?”  Dr. Wos asked.
“No, she is still, you know.”  SFD said.
“Oh yeah, I forgot.  I’ll be there soon.”  Dr. Wos said.
“Great.”  SFD said and hung up.  SFD checked the number and dialed.
“Hello, who is this?  Why do you keep calling me?”  Vince Dastardly answered the phone.  Vince knew that it was SFD calling, but he enjoyed a good prank.
“Vince, I’ve got something big, how soon can you get here, without running red lights?”  SFD asked.
“I’ll be there before you know it.”  Vince Dastardly replied and hung up.

There was a knock on the door; he didn’t hear it the first time.  As he paced up and down the long corridor that lead to the front door of his Talos Island apartment.  He had been given a very important assignment, and he knew that he would need help.
“Dragon!  Open the door.”  A voice shouted from the other side of the door.  He knew in an instant who was there; he knew that he would have to open the door.
Super Fire Dragon crossed the room and made his way to the door.  He opened it.
“About time!”  Dr. Wos said.
“I am so glad you could make it, have a seat.”  SFD said.
“Dragon, you made it sound urgent over the phone, what’s going on?”  Dr. Wos asked.
“Yes, others are expected.”  SFD replied and Dr. Wos sat on the middle of the couch.
“So who all is coming over?  You promised that the Paragon Avenger wouldn’t be here.”  Dr. Wos insisted.
“And you believed me, ha!”  SFD laughed.
“That does it, I’m out of here.”  Dr. Wos stood up to leave just as the door bell rang.
Super Fire Dragon motioned for Dr. Wos to sit back down, and he opened the door.
“Dragon, darling, how good of you to allow me to come.”  Flower Night said in a high-society affectation.
“Flower Night, you look lovely.”  SFD said.
“Dr. Wos, what a pleasant surprise.  The dragon didn’t mention that you were here.”  Flower Night commented.
“I just got here my self.”  Dr. Wos said.
“There are more coming.”  SFD said.
“I’ll ask you again, this time I demand a straight answer.  Will the Paragon Avenger be joining us?”  Dr. Wos asked.
“No, Blinky won’t be here.”  SFD answered.
“Oh, ho-ho, that’s cleaver.  Blinky, because of his flash powers.”  Flower Night giggled.
“Flower Night have a seat while we wait for the others to arrive.”  SFD ordered.
“Thanks.”  Flower Night said.
“Ok, Dragon I’ll stay, but I’m warning you, no funny business.”  Dr. Wos said sitting back down.
“Oh pish-posh, everybody knows I’m not funny.”  SFD said.
The door bell rang.
“I’ll get it.”  SFD yelled.
“Of course you will, this is your apartment after all.”  Dr. Wos fumed.
“Developer 13, and right on time too.”  SFD said as he opened the door and checked his watch.
“Was there ever any doubt?”  Developer 13 replied.
“Dev, how they compiling?”  Dr. Wos asked.
“Good to see you Wos.”  Developer 13 said.
“Developer, it has been too long.”  Flower Night added.
“My dear, you look charming tonight.”  Developer 13 beamed.
“Careful FN, Dev is a smooth operator.”  Dr. Wos said.
“Whatever do you mean, sir?”  Developer 13 responded.
“There was some talk that Ice’s baby is actually yours.”  Dr. Wos accused.
“That’s a lie.”  Developer 13 threatened.
“No wonder The Paragon Avenger doesn’t like you, Wos.”  Flower Night chimed in.
“What do you know about it, bottle Blondie.”  Dr. Wos interjected.
“Hey, you stop picking on her.”  Vince Dastardly said becoming visible.
“Vince, how long have you been here?”  SFD asked.
“Oh, for a while.  I told you that I would be here before you knew it.”  Vince Dastardly bragged.
They all laughed.

"Ok, Dragon, hold it right there."  Kolissa shouted as she barged into his apartment.
"Let me introduce Kolissa."  Super Fire Dragon said.
"Dragon, we know Kolissa."  Dr. Wos said.
"Oh, you're having a party?"  Kolissa said.
"Yes, come in, come in."  SFD offered.

“What is she doing here?”  Developer 13 asked about Kolissa.
“Yeah, Kolissa, this is for heroes only.”  Flower Night added.
“Now, wait, let’s hear her side of the story.”  Vince Dastardly interjected.
“I don’t know all the lies that Super Fire Dragon and others have spread about me.”  Kolissa began.
“Oh please.”  Super Fire Dragon replied.
“Let me talk, deary, it will be your turn shortly.”  Kolissa demeaned.
“Ok, let’s hear it, how did you not force Fred to burn his hand?”  Flower Night challenged.
“Funny that you should mention that, you see Fred was being disrespectful towards Necrophillia, and she lost her temper.”  Kolissa lied.
Super Fire Dragon stood there confused.  He could tell that Kolissa was lying, but the way she could just rattle off pure fabrication like that was amazing.  Ms. Liberty had explained to the little dragon that Kolissa is necessary for the upcoming mission, but this bald-faced lie struck the dragon to his core.
“ENOUGH!”  SFD shouted.
“What?”  Kolissa asked shocked.
“Kolissa made Fred burn his hand so he would get her the file on her that Hero Corps has.”  SFD stated.
“Yes, Dragon, we all know that, but why is she here and not in jail?”  Dr. Wos asked.
“Kolissa, why are you here?”  Flower Night asked.
“Well, actually, I wanted to kill Super Fire Dragon, but that’s all water under the bridge now.”  Kolissa said.
“Yes, Ms. Liberty needs Kolissa and I to go to South Korean for a very important mission.”  SFD answered.
“Super Fire Dragon will be assisting me, carrying my luggage, drawing my bath, those sorts of things while I solve the case.”  Kolissa bragged.
“Kolissa, do you know how to tell the truth?”  SFD asked.
“Deary, that is a skill I seldom need.”  Kolissa replied.
“Ha!  Now she’s lying about lying.”  SFD laughed.
“I hope to have that kind of clout some day.”  Developer 13 responded.
“Well, deary, first try to not get deleted.”  Kolissa insulted.
“Hey, that’s below the belt.”  Flower Night accused.
“I was a level 50 before most of you were even rolled-up, and I don’t have that kind of clout.”  Dr. Wos stated.
“Well, it helps if you’re not a jerk.”  Kolissa fired back.
“I think I have had enough of this, Dragon, why did you call us?”  Developer 13 asked.
“I need somebody to water my house plants, pick-up my mail, feed my tropic fish and watch my place while I’m gone.  Meanwhile, I need somebody to help me pack.”  SFD explained.
“I came clear across town to be insulted for this!  Goodbye!”  Developer 13 said as he stood up and walked towards the door.
“I will water your fish, feed your mail, pick-up your place and watch your house plants.”  Flower Night said a bit shook-up by Developer 13’s angry departure.
“Deary, that’s water his mail, pick-up his fish, feed his place and then watch his plants.”  Kolissa said deliberately getting it mixed up.
“No, it’s water his watch, plant his mail, fish his place and pick-up his house.”  Dr. Wos interjected.
“No, wait, I don’t even have a house.”  SFD corrected.
“Sorry, Dragon, I meant to say it right.”  Flower Night admitted.
“Can I feed your watch, pick-up your plants, water your house and fish your place?”  Kolissa asked.
“No!”  SFD replied.
They all laughed.

After several minutes of everyone deliberately mixing up the verbs and the nouns of what the little dragon wanted, Flower Night agreed to help out.  The others left disappointed that they weren’t being asked to join some interesting task force.  Some task force hot on the trail of the clockwork king or some other such villain.
“Kolissa, I have planned our flight with the airlines.  It looks rather impressive if I do say so myself.”  Super Fire dragon said smugly.
“Great, but why didn’t you just go through a travel agency?”  Kolissa asked.
“Pish-posh, those guys are rip-off artists.”  SFD remarked.
“Ok, so let’s hear the schedule.”  Kolissa asked.
“Ok, first we drive to JFK and catch the 8:05am flight to Orlando.  From there we grab the 11:15am flight to St. Louis.  That’s a hub.  We then change planes twice and take the 2:10pm flight to Denver then it gets tricky, we have to catch the 4:37pm flight to Dallas and the 5:07pm flight to Las Vegas.”  SFD rattled.
“Hold it!  Why not catch a flight from Providence to LA?”  Kolissa asked.
“That seems like a long trip.”  SFD countered.
“Yeah, so.”  Kolissa asked.
“Well, wouldn’t the planes wings get tired?”  SFD asked.
“No!”  Kolissa snapped.
“Really?  All that flapping.”  SFD asked.
“Dragon, planes don’t flap their wings.”  Kolissa replied.
“How do they fly then?”  SFD asked.
“I have no idea.”  Kolissa said.
“Well how can we trust them?”  SFD asked.
“Planes just fly, they used motors and jets and stuff, ok?”  Kolissa was getting annoyed.
“Oh, planes must have rocket boots.”  SFD blurted out proudly for having figured it out.
“Deary, let me make the travel arrangements.”  Kolissa cooed ignoring Super Fire Dragon’s flash of brilliance.
“Well, ok, but I need a window seat right next to the aisle.”  SFD remarked.
“Oh yeah, smoking or non-smoking?”  Kolissa asked.
“Smoking, I like smoked meats and cheeses.”  SFD replied.
“Deary, you will be lucky if I don’t check you in as luggage.”  Kolissa threatened.
Super Fire Dragon whimpered.

“Ok, now be cool.  The TSA are not going to like your jokes about Dragon-go-boom.”  Kolissa instructed.
“But it’s one of my favorite incarnate powers.”  Super Fire Dragon pleaded.
“Whatever.  Did you follow the packing instructions I texted you?”  Kolissa asked.
“Was that the text of you wearing a swimsuit?”  SFD asked.
“Yikes, you got the wrong text.”  Kolissa remarked.
“Great, just great.  I went out and bought a bikini.”  SFD exclaimed.
“Why?”  Kolissa asked.
“A speedo makes my wings look fat.”  SFD stated.
“Dragon, oh never mind.  Here’s the airport, pay the cab-driver.”  Kolissa ordered.
“Hey, cab-driver, what would you say to Super Fire Dragon Tokens instead of smelly old dollars?”  SFD asked.
“I would say that I will need to use my baseball bat on your face!”  Cab-Driver insisted.
“Just joking, here, keep the change.”  SFD said as he flipped the cab-driver a hundred.
“Thanks, Mac.”  The Cab-Driver said.
“Well, aren’t you going to help us with our bags?”  SFD asked.
“Oh, yes, sorry.  Yo!  Baggage guy, com’ere.”  The Cab-Driver shouted.
“Which airline?”  The Baggage Guy asked.
“We’re taking the concord.”  SFD joked.
“What?”  The Baggage Guy said stunned.
“No, we’re on Beta.”  Kolissa answered.
“Ok, this way.”  The Baggage Guy pointed.
“Stop it, Dragon.”  Kolissa scolded.
“Ok, MOM!”  SFD replied.
After they reached the baggage check-in.
“Have you been in control of your baggage?  Has it ever left your sight?  Did anyone ask you to put anything into your luggage?”  The Clerk asked mindlessly.
“Dragon, don’t.”  Kolissa said.
“Is there a problem?”  The Clerk asked.
“Yes, he’s Super Fire Dragon and a bit of a wise-guy.”  Kolissa replied.
“SUPER FIRE DRAGON!  I love you!  You saved my family from the Family.  Ooooo, I want a hug.  Let’s take a picture.”  The Clerk shouted coming to life.
“Always happy to meet my adoring public.”  SFD replied embracing the Clerk.
“Ms. Liberty, I hate you so much right now.”  Kolissa muttered under her breath.
“You, deary, could you snap the picture.”  The Clerk said to Kolissa.
“Love to.”  Kolissa said sarcastically.
After snapping a few pictures, the clerk took the smartphone back and reviewed them.
“Honey, your thumb is over Super Fire Dragon’s face in every picture.  You must not know how to take pictures very well.”  The Clerk remarked.
“Oh, she knows exactly how to take picture very well.  Should I show her that swimsuit selfie?”  SFD asked.
“Dragon!”  Kolissa snapped.
“Perhaps I can get Herb to take the pictures.  I’ll be right back.”  The Clerk said walking to the back room.
“Is it going to be this way everywhere we go?  Your fan club fawning all over you?”  Kolissa asked.
“Hey, when you save the world, without burning some poor guy’s hand, people notice.”  SFD beamed.
“You’re never going to let me forget that, are you?”  Kolissa asked.
“That couldn’t be.  You said Super Fire Dragon is here, but that looks like Kolissa.”  Herb said.
“Are you Kolissa?”  The Clerk asked Kolissa.
“Yes, deary, I am Kolissa.”  Kolissa cooed.
“See I told you.”  Herb said.
“So, do you want a selfie with me?”  Kolissa asked.
“No, that won’t be necessary.”  Herb replied.
“How about a hug?”  Kolissa asked.
“As if, I mean, thanks, but no thanks.”  Herb reacted.
“Ok, I want a few shots with the Dragon.  Maybe a couple with us goofing.  Hey, maybe one that looks like the Dragon just rescued me.”  The Clerk requested.
“Ok, ok, stand over there.”  Herb said.
The Clerk, SFD and Kolissa walked over to the wall.
“You, the tall girl, yeah you, you’re in the shot.”  Herb said to Kolissa.
“Maybe I’ll just go over to the next window.”  Kolissa said.
After Herb took dozens of pictures of Super Fire Dragon and that nameless clerk, Kolissa and the Dragon made there way to the TSA check-in.
“Take off your shoes, empty your pockets and put your stuff in the basket.”  The TSA agent rattled-off.
“I’m not wearing shoes, and I don’t have any pockets.”  SFD replied.
“Yikes, you’re a dragon.”  The TSA agent said looking up from the x-ray scanner.
“Pleased to meet your acquaintance.”  SFD said jokingly.
Kolissa rolled her eyes.
“Hey, Karen, what do we do with talking dragons?”  The TSA agent yelled over his shoulder.
“I’m not with him.”  Kolissa lied.
“What, Bill, there is always something with you…oh my goodness, that’s Super Fire Dragon.”  Karen, the TSA supervisor shouted.
“SUPER FIRE DRAGON!”  most of the other TSA agents shouted as they charged towards the little dragon.
“Super Fire Dragon, you are my all time favorite hero, right behind Batman and the Flash and Superman and Wonder Woman.”  One of the TSA agents said.
“Super Fire Dragon, can I have your autograph?”  Still another TSA agent asked.
“Super Fire Dragon, live and in-person, here.  We love you Super Fire Dragon!”  Yet another TSA agent shouted.
Most other TSA agents stood clapping and smiling at the dragon.
“Thank you, thank you, I do it all for you, and well cheese too.”  SFD said.
The TSA agents laughed.
“I think I want to barf.”  Kolissa muttered under her breath.
After signing several autographs and being in several selfies, Super Fire Dragon and Kolissa went to the ticket counter.
“Ticket, please.”  The ticket agent said without looking up from her computer.
Kolissa handed the agent her and the dragon’s tickets.
“What kind of name is Kollessa?”  The Ticket Agent asked.
“It’s pronounced Kolissa.  It’s my hero name.”  Kolissa answered.
“What’s the name on your passport?”  The Ticket Agent asked.
“It that really necessary?”  Kolissa asked.
“If you want to fly out-seas.”  The Ticket Agent snide.
“Fine, my true name is Pansy Childs.”  Kolissa admitted.
“Pansy Childs, now that’s funny.”  SFD shouted.
“Keep your voice down.”  Kolissa replied.
“And who are you travelling with, Super Fire Dragon?  No, no, no this will not do.  No funny stage names.”  The Ticket Agent said sternly.
“Well, ha, funny story, see, umm, that is my legal name.  Yeah, I blew the hundred bucks and got my name legally changed.”  SFD explained.
“Uh-huh, what was it before that?”  The Ticket Agent asked.
“Grrrrowl, sniff, sniff Johnson.”  SFD replied.
“I can see why you had it changed.”  The Ticket Agent replied.
“Thanks, babe.”  SFD fired back.
“Wait a minute; are you THE Super Fire Dragon?”  The Ticket Agent asked.
“Here we go again.”  Pansy Childs a.k.a. Kolissa said.
“I is he, I are he?  He am I, We is they?”  SFD stumbled.
“Super Fire Dragon, you are so funny.”  The Ticket Agent fawned.
“Take the selfie already and give us our boarding passes.”  Kolissa demanded growing impatient.
“Who’s she?”  The Ticket Agent asked.
“She’s my partner, Kolissa.”  SFD said.
“Why do you need a partner?”  The Ticket Agent asked.
“Well, I need somebody to yell ‘Look-out’ when a bad guy is sneaking up from behind.”  SFD joked.
“I love you Super Fire Dragon.”  The Ticket agent replied laughing at his joke.
“So is our flight on-time?”  SFD asked.
“Oh, let me check, yes it is, but wait these seats are for couch.  There, you’re been upgraded to first-class.  Enjoy your flight.”  The Ticket agent said smiling at the dragon and handing the boarding passes to Kolissa.
“I thought you said that the airport was going to be an ordeal.  This is fun.”  SFD remarked.
“Nope, it HAS been an ordeal, trust me.”  Kolissa snarled.
They both laughed.

Before boarding the airliner, Super Fire Dragon put on a pair of plastic eye glasses with bushy eyebrows attached, a fake nose and a bushy mustache.
“Now boarding First Class, rows 1 to 8.”  The flight attendant call over the public address system.
“Come on, that’s us.”  Kolissa said reaching for SFD’s hand.
“Coming mother.”  SFD said in a child’s voice.
“Dragon.”  Kolissa started as she turned to look at our hero.  “What on earth are you doing?”
“I’m traveling in disguise.”  SFD explained.
“What?  Why?  Dragon, you’re going to get us in trouble.”  A worried Kolissa rattled off.
“Welcome to Beta Airlines.”  The friendly Flight Attendant said through a fake smile.
“Hey Babe, when do we get our drinks?”  SFD asked handing his boarding pass to the attendant.
“Drink service will start as soon as we have left the ground, ok?”  The Flight Attendant asked expecting an answer, but accepting only agreement.
“Sir, I’m going to need to check your photo I.D.”  Another Flight Attendant said noticing SFD’s disguise.
“Deary, can I change seats?  That guy looks weird and I don’t want to sit next to him.”  Kolissa said pointing at the dragon.
“I’m sorry; we’re overbooked as it is, please take your seat, ok?”  The Flight Attendant asked expecting the correct answer.
Super Fire Dragon handed over his hero ID.
“Sir, this doesn’t look anything like you.  Do you have another form of ID?”  The Flight Attendant asked.
Reaching around to get his other wallet, Super Fire Dragon bumped into the plane’s bulkhead knocking his glasses off.
“Oh, that’s better.  Enjoy your flight, Su-per-fi-re-dra-gon.”  The Flight Attendant read the badly faded name on the ID card.
“Did somebody say, ‘Super Fire Dragon’?”  One of the other First Class passengers exclaimed.
“Super Fire Dragon is on our plane!”  One of the flight attendants shouted.
“Here we go again.”  Kolissa protested.
“Super Fire Dragon, you saved of sister from the Tsoo, my wife from the Warriors, my hair-stylist from the Hellions, my cousin from the clockwork, my friend from the Freakshow, my lawyer from the Lost and my tax-perparer from the Trolls.”  A passenger listed off.
“Well I did get around.”  SFD gloated.
After several signed autographs and selfies, SFD and Kolissa settled in for their flight.
The door to the flight deck opened and a distinguished man wearing a pilot’s uniform walked out towards SFD.
“Super Fire Dragon, I’m so pleased to finally meet you.  I’m Captain Jack Daniels, no relation, and I’ll be flying you today.”  Capt. Jack Daniels said.
“Just the man I wanted to see.  I have a question about airplanes, if you have a minute, could you explain something to me?”  SFD asked.
“Well, I do have some time while the co-pilot does the pre-flight and the baggage is loaded.  Do you mind?”  Capt. Jack Daniels said squeezing Kolissa out of her seat.
“Fine, I’ll visit the lavatory.”  Kolissa said trying to regain her composure.
“Captain, I just don’t get it.  Those wings don’t look like they flap, how does this thing get off the ground?”  SFD asked.
“I have no idea.”  Capt. Jack Daniels replied.
“What?”  Responded all those in earshot.
“Just kidding,  We have two very powerful jet engines that push the plane forward at tremendous speed.  Air rushes under the wings and over the wings.  The wings part the air causing the upper air to move faster than the lower air.  This causes the wing to generate lift, and the plane is soon airborne.”  The Captain described.
“So I was right, it is rocket boots.  Thanks, Captain.”  SFD said.
“No, you don’t understand … “  The Captain began.
“Rocket boots.”  SFD interrupted.
“It’s not rocket boots…”  The Capt tried again.
“Thanks, Captain.”  SFD interrupted again.
“You aren’t listening … “  The Captain tried again.
“Hey, I said, ‘Thank You’.”  SFD insisted.
“Whatever.”  Captain Jack Daniels replied.
“Captain, one more thing.”  SFD inquired.
“Yes.”  The Captain replied dreading what might come next.
“When the plane gets tired of flapping its wings, do we land or just glide?”  SFD questioned.
Captain Jack Daniels stood up and walked back to the flight deck.
“Whad-I say?  Whad-I say?”  SFD asked puzzled.
Kolissa returned to her seat.
“Did the pilot explain how the plane flies to ya?”  Kolissa asked.
“Yep, its rocket boots.”  SFD stated flipping through a magazine.
“Oh brother.”  Kolissa said.
They all laughed.

“We’ll be landing soon; do you have your baggage ticket?”  Kolissa asked trying to be responsible.
“Oops, I think I left it in my other pants.”  Super Fire Dragon replied.
“Dragon, you’re not wearing pants.”  Kolissa endured.
“That explains why it hurts when I put my hands in my pockets.”  SFD laughed.
“Deary, you did that stupid joke already.”  Kolissa scolded.
“Yeah, but not on an airplane flying through the sky at tremendous speeds.”  SFD exclaimed.
“What difference does that make?”  Kolissa asked regretting her question.
“Well, when a joke or gag is performed at high altitude, certain cosmic factors come into play.”  SFD explained.
“Sure they do, deary.”  Kolissa said finding an end to the conversation.
“No, really, the cosmic …”  SFD began.
“I said, ‘Sure’.“  Kolissa interrupted.
“You don’t understand …”  SFD tried to explain.
“Already said, ‘Sure’, Deary.”  Kolissa interrupted.
“Fine.”  SFD replied.
“After landing, we’ll claim our luggage and get a taxi.”  Kolissa planned.
“Nope, first things first.”  SFD said holding up one finger.
“What?”  Kolissa asked without thinking.
“First, I need to visit the little dragon’s room.”  SFD informed.
“Deary, they have a restroom on the plane.”  Kolissa informed.
“Believe me; what I need to do is not restful.”  SFD remarked.
“Dragon!  That’s what they call it.”  Kolissa replied.
The dragon got up and found the restroom.
“Flight Attendant, deary, is there anyway to lock the restroom.”  Kolissa asked.
“Well of course, just turn the little handle until it clicks.  It will display ‘Occupied’ on the outside.”  The Flight Attendant asnswered with a fake smile on her face that must’ve froze that way.
“No you don’t understand.  I want to lock it from the outside.”  Kolissa explained.
“That might trap somebody inside, deary, that wouldn’t be safe.”  The Flight Attendant answered without changing her smile.
“That’s what I want to do.”  Kolissa responded.
“Deary, we can’t lock people in the restroom.”  The Flight Attendant explained.
“That’s just it, he’s not people.  He’s an annoying little dragon.”  Kolissa confronted.
“As much as we may want to, we can not lock anyone in the restroom.”  The Flight Attendant stated almost losing her smile.
“Pity.”  Kolissa replied.

“Sorry Cleveland!”  Super Fire Dragon said returning to his seat.
“What are you talking about?”  Kolissa puzzled.
“Oh, I just dropped a bomb on Cleveland; do not go in there for a while.”  SFD explained.
“Dragon, it doesn’t work that way, besides, we are over the Pacific Ocean.”  Kolissa remarked.
“So I can show my face in Cleveland?”  SFD asked.
“Whatever, Dragon, maybe you should go easy on the cheese.”  Kolissa suggested.
“Bite your tongue, woman.”  SFD responded.
“I was only trying to help.”  Kolissa replied.
“Take your help and bottle it.”  SFD shot back.
“Dragon, it’s only cheese.”  Kolissa stated.
“That’s right, dig yourself in deeper.”  SFD said with a smirk on his face.
“Oh brother.  Deary, you must do something about your cheese addiction.”  Kolissa asserted.
“Not in front of the C-H-E-D-D-A-R.”  SFD said while cradling a round of cheddar.
“Dragon, remember when I used to collect diamonds?”  Kolissa asked.
“I remember when you used to steal diamonds, yes.”  SFD said correcting Kolissa’s word choice.
“Well, a certain little someone helped me.”  Kolissa stated.
“I knew Zoe would be helpful, she’s so smart.”  SFD replied.
“No!  Not those little girls you took me to.”  Kolissa insisted.
“’Stealing is bad because it is wrong’ sounds helpful to me.”  SFD remarked.
“You helped me, Dragon, and I think maybe you need my help with getting over cheese.”  Kolissa volunteered.
“I don’t need any help.  I could quit anytime.”  SFD said while eating a hunk of cheddar.
“Dragon, what’s the longest you have ever gone without cheese?”  Kolissa asked.
“Counting today?”  SFD asked finishing the hunk of cheese he just started.
“Sure, what’s the longest you have ever gone without cheese?”  Kolissa asked.
“Ummm, snake days, lobster minutes and 45 weeks minus smoke.”  SFD replied motioning for the flight attendant.
“Oh yeah, I forgot; you don’t know numbers.  Imagine you’re level white and going an entire mission without cheese is purple.  What color is the longest you have gone?”  Kolissa asked.
“Oh, that’s easy.  Blue or green.”  SFD answered.
“Wow, you have never been without cheese?”  Kolissa said amazed.
“Yes, just how may I help y’all?”  The Flight Attendant asked.
“Brie me.”  SFD ordered.
“Yes, sir.”  The Flight Attendant walked away presumably to fetch cheese.
“Dragon, haven’t you had enough?”  Kolissa insisted.
“Woman, I know how much I can take.”  SFD barked.
“Give me your keys, I’m driving.”  Kolissa ordered.
“Get off my back or my back hand will find your cheek.”  SFD threatened.
“Dragon, you can't even reach my face.”  Kolissa commented.
“Wrong cheek, baby.”  SFD replied.
“Oh brother.”  Kolissa responded.
They all laughed.

“… and thank you for flying Beta airlines, come back when we get the kinks-out.”  A Flight Attendant said over the planes public address system while smiling that ever-present and a bit creepy smile.
“Well, this is where I get off.”  Super Fire Dragon commented.
“Yeah, wait for the plane to stop moving and the hatch to open.”  Kolissa instructed.
“Woman, I was already hatched.”  SFD said indigent.
“No, deary, you don’t understand.”  Kolissa said trying to restrain the eager little dragon.
“Open this door at once!”  SFD ordered the Flight Attendant.
“Sir, the plane hasn’t stopped taxiing, please take your seat.”  The Flight Attendant countered.
“Well, ok.”  SFD said.
The little dragon went back to where he had been sitting by Kolissa and ripped the seat from the floor.
“Is this better?”  SFD asked the stunned Flight Attendant.
“Dragon!”  Kolissa yelled.
“Security, First Class row 1, on the double.”  The Flight Attendant said into her two-way hand-held radio.
“You said ‘Take your seat’ so I brought it with me.”  SFD explained to no one.
“Dragon, put the seat back!”  Kolissa ordered.
“Ma-am, are you with this passenger?”  The Flight Attendant asked.
“Who me?  I never have seen him before in my life.  He looks dangerous, maybe he should be locked away someplace.”  Kolissa explained.
Two uniformed guards rushed towards the dragon and shot him with tranq darts.
“Hey, watch it.  You could put an eye out with those things.”  SFD said pulling the darts out of his butt and throwing them to the floor.
“Looks like we might have to tackle him.”  One of the guards said to the other guard.
“Is that the time?  It’s my break time.  See you in sixty.”  The other guard said looking at his watch and realizing that they were not dealing with some rowdy passenger who had been over-served.
“Sir, she is with him.”  The Flight Attendant informed.
“Miss, you will have to come with us.”  The second guard said to Kolissa.
“What?”  Kolissa exclaimed.
“A minor paperwork processing, please walk this way.”  The first guard said to Kolissa.
“Fine, anything to get the menace locked up and the key throw away.”  Kolissa said and stood up to follow the guard.  The two guards pounced on her putting her arms behind her back and locking her in handcuffs.
“Dragon, this is another fine mess you’ve gotten me into.”  Kolissa barked as she was being lead to the rear of the plane.
“I thought she would never leave.”  SFD said with a sigh of relief.
They all laughed, except Kolissa.

“Yes, she is with me.”  Super Fire Dragon admitted to the security team in the office of the head of airline security.  After Kolissa had been taken into custody, Super Fire Dragon surrendered to the security guards.  He explained that he is a superhero working in the so-called “City of Heroes” Paragon City, Rhode Island.  After explaining over and over that he was a superhero, he finally showed them his ID.  After they called Ms. Liberty and got paw prints, a DNA sample and a blood sample, they agreed to let him go.

“Sorry for the inconvenience, but under the circumstances.”  The Security Chief said.
“Well yes, under the circumstances.”  SFD replied.
“Thank you for understanding.”  The Security Chief responded.
“Well, it is the least I could do, under the circumstances.”  SFD remarked.
“Yes, Kolissa will be brought to us shortly.”  The Security Chief informed.
“Good idea, under the circumstances.”  SFD replied.
“Can I get you anything to drink?  Perhaps a snack?”  The Security Chief offered.
“Yes, I would love some cheese, and maybe one of those circumstances I have heard so much about.”  SFD replied.
“What?”  The Security Chief asked shocked.
“Don’t tell me you guys don’t have any cheese.”  SFD snapped.
“Oh cheese we got.  Circumstances, we got.  I just never heard of anyone putting them together before.”  The Security Chief answered.
“Oh, is it an after 5 thing, you see I’m a bit jet-lagged.”  SFD admitted.
“Of course, you misspoke.  Kim, bring cheese and crackers for the dragon.”  The Security Chief Ordered.
“Thank you, but I have had cheese on crackers everywhere.  I wanted to try one of those circumstances.  Are they cream filled pastries?”  SFD asked.
“For a superhero you seem confused.  A circumstance is a, a, a situation.”  The Security Chief replied.
“Oh, and here I thought it was food.”  SFD admitted laughing.
“My friend, I’m so glad that you are in such good spirits.”  The Security Chief observed.
“What is the meaning of this?  I was attacked, stripped, beaten and imprisoned.  And it’s all that dragon’s fault.”  Kolissa screamed as she saw the Security Chief and SFD sitting chatting.
“Please accept our humblest apologies for any indignities you have suffered.”  The Security Chief said rising to his feet to greet Kolissa.
“Chief, she wasn’t stripped.  She simply had to change into the prison uniform.”  One of the guards volunteered.
“Chief, we didn’t beat her either.  She lost her balance and we had to catch her.”  The other guard offered.
“Look, if I say that I was stripped and beaten then I was stripped and beaten.”  Kolissa stormed.
“Well, under the circumstances.”  SFD said still hoping for pastries.
“Ok, fine.  If I get you both some cream filled donuts, will you stop shouting about being stripped and beaten and will you stop saying ‘under the circumstances’?”  The Security Chief bargained.
“Well, for cream filled donuts, I will stop complaining about being stripped and beaten, sure.”  SFD responded.
“Deary, he means me.”  Kolissa replied.
“But you weren’t saying, ‘under the circumstances’.”  SFD interjected.
They all laughed.

“I’m glad you asked that.”  Super Fire Dragon commented between bites of a cheese Danish.
“Dragon, stop eating long enough to tell the Security Chief our mission, deary.”  Kolissa suggested strongly.
“But these are cheese and like donuts at the same time!”  SFD said no longer able to contain his excitement over finding what he undoubtedly would consider the perfect food.
“Yes, we have all the modern conveniences of the Western World.  Why just last week, we installed flush toilets.”  The Security Chief joked.
Kolissa’s jaw dropped and Super Fire Dragon actually stopped eating momentarily.
“What?  I can’t make a joke too?”  The Security Chief asked.
“You will have to forgive us, the East has always seemed so, mysterious.”  Kolissa apologized.
 “Chief, do whatever you want as far as jokes are concerned, but keep these cheese donuts coming.”  SFD explained.
“Of course, anyway, I am very curious about your trip to my country.  Tell me about this mission.”  The Security Chief said
“Dragon, should I tell him, you seem…occupied.”  Kolissa offered.
“Kolissa is my assistant during my trip to your wonderful country filled with cheesy delights.”  SFD replied.
“You know Cheese Danish are not native to this country, but good hospitality is.  Please eat up.”  The Security Chief offered.
“Thank you so very much, Dragon, tell him.”  Kolissa replied.
“Security Chief, Kolissa and I are here at the bequest of our boss, Ms. Liberty.  It seems that while she was here, a valuable item was stolen from her hotel room.  I expect that you will round up the usual suspects.”  SFD said playing detective.
“Why didn’t she report the theft to the authorities?”  The Security Chief asked shocked.
“Dragon, she did tell me about any stolen items.”  Kolissa responded.
“Yes, I have a feeling that the murderer is in this very room.”  SFD said.
“Murderer?”  The Security Chief gasped.
“Deary, I think that maybe you have had too much sugar.”  Kolissa said.
“Oh yes, quiet.  I was playing foreign detective.  I think I should probably go lie down for awhile.”  SFD explained.
“Oh thank goodness, yes, go take a nap.”  The Security Chief said.
“Kolissa, come with and help me.”  SFD pleaded.
“Great, just great.”  Kolissa said.
They all laughed.
SFD and Kolissa left the room.  When they were far enough away SFD spoke up.
“Kolissa, he seems too interested in our mission.  I don’t like it.”  SFD whispered.
“You were faking all along.”  Kolissa shout whispered.

When they arrived at Super Fire Dragon's room, he used a secret gadget Ms. Liberty had entrusted with him.  The gadget defeats listening devices.
"Dragon, do you mind telling me what's going on here?"  Kolissa asked sternly.
"Deary, the circumstances call for your out-of-the-box thinking.  We don't know who is with us or against us."  SFD explained.
"Oh, right.  Let's see...if I were a friendly contact, and I'm not saying that I am, I would want to get a message to you fairly quickly, and without being detected."  Kolissa puzzled.
Just then, there was a knock at the door.

“All I can tell you is that it is not safe for you here.”  The woman said after Super Fire Dragon answered the door and let her in and gave her a drink and had her sit down.  Kolissa asked her name.
“I am known by many names, but please call me by my code name, ‘Big Stud’.”  The woman replied.
“Big stud?”  Super Fire Dragon laughed.
“Yes, my father was in the construction business, why do you laugh?”  The Woman asked.
“Oh no reason.”  Kolissa managed to say between burst of laughter.
“Ok, Big Stud, we know that this is a dangerous mission, but we are crime fighters from the U.S.”  SFD bragged.
“I will contact you again, probably when you least expect it.  I leave you with this last warning, beware.”  The Woman said
“Ok, we will.”  SFD replied.
The Woman remained sitting and drinking.
“I thought you were leaving, deary?”  Kolissa asked.
“What, can’t I even finish my drink first?”  The Woman questioned.
“Fine, finish your drink; can we get you something to eat?  Would you like to watch TV?”  SFD asked disingenuously.
“Thank you.”  The Woman said.
Kolissa glared at her.
“You know, I do have to be somewhere.”  The Woman said and got up and left.
“That was weird.”  Kolissa stated.
“I’ll say, she stole our glass.”  SFD remarked.
“Big Stud, interesting codename.”  Kolissa mused.
“Kolissa, concentrate on the angles.  While I put the pieces together.”  SFD ordered.
“What pieces?”  Kolissa asked.
“Well, there is the fan club at the airport for our departure, but arrest for our arrival.”  SFD started.
“Two different countrties.”  Kolissa scuffled.
“And the endless supply of cheese Danish.”  SFD added in deep thought.
“They were just being nice.” Kolissa explained.
“And your being stripped and beaten.”  SFD offered.
“Ok, I wasn’t really stripped, I was asked to change clothes, and I wasn’t technically beaten.”  Kolissa continued.
“Of course, Kolissa, did they give you anything?”  SFD asked.
“What do you mean?”  Kolissa wondered.
“A pen, a keepsake, anything.”  SFD asked.
“No, deary, just this bruise.”  Kolissa said pointing to her left arm.
“Just as I thought.  We had better stay in my room tonight.”  SFD outlined.
“I beg your pardon.”  Kolissa said indignant.
“Taking turns sleeping.”  SFD finished.
“Oh, ok.”  Kolissa replied.
“I’m positive that the Security Chief is in on it, I think Big Stud might be a diversion.”  SFD thought out loud.
“She seemed so nice.”  Kolissa interjected.
“Kolissa, what have you come up with?”  SFD asked.
“From what; about what?”  Kolissa asked.
“My wings woman, don’t you have eyes?”  SFD said shocked.
“Oh, you mean about the plan to take over Paragon City and turn it into an amusement park where people pretend to be superheroes, but all they do is chat and dance.”  Kolissa stated.
“Yes, that.”  SFD countered.
“Oh, first things first.  We need to test Big Stud.”  Kolissa answered.
“How do we do that?”  SFD asked.
“We tell her that you found the listening device in your room.”  Kolissa suggested.
“Are you mad woman?”  SFD responded.
“Listen Deary, if after we tell BS that story, they would find an excuse to move you to another room, she’s on their side.”  Kolissa explained.
“Or they arrest me, strip me and beat me up.”  SFD replied.
“Well that’s a risk I’m willing to take.”  Kolissa reassured.
“No, we tell her that you found a listening device in your room.”  SFD offered.
“What good would that do?”  Kolissa asked.
“Cheese woman, I thought you were clever.”  SFD admonished.
“Oh, I get it now, deary, you are devious.”  Kolissa chortled.
They then began discussing their plans for the following day, and arguing over who would take the first watch.

“I went to your room, but you were not there.  I see you are here.  You Americans do sleep around, I understand.”  Big Stud said after Super Fire Dragon answered the door.
“Listen, deary, it was nothing like that.”  Kolissa insisted.
“No need to make excuses, the dragon is kind of cute.”  Big Stud replied.
“See, I told you that.”  SFD said beaming.
“I wouldn’t be caught dead with that winged simpleton.”  Kolissa rebuked.
“Then why are you in his room?  And staying with him all night?”  Big Stud accused.
“Yeah Kolissa, if that is your name, why were you in my room all night?”  SFD asked.
“Dragon!”  Kolissa shouted not amused.
“I go now and let you two work out your spat.”  Big Stud remarked.
“We are not having a spat!”  Kolissa informed very forcefully.
“That is so just like you, every time we start to have a discussion about where we stand in our relationship …”  SFD started.
“WE DO NOT HAVE A RELATIONSHIP!”  Kolissa interrupted at the top of her voice.
“Typical.”  SFD sighed and rolled his eyes.
“Big Stud, wait.”  Kolissa said as Big Stud was about to walk out the door.  “The Dragon is just in one of his moods.  Here is what really happened.”
“I understand.  I will see to it at once.”  Big Stud left after Kolissa had told her that they had discovered a listening device in Kolissa’s room when she and the Dragon were comparing rooms.
“Do you think she bought it?”  SFD asked.
“What is wrong with you?”  Kolissa asked.
“What did I do?”  SFD asked.
“You nearly destroyed the plan.  Big Stud was thinking that we were sleeping together.  We want her to think we found the listening device, remember?”  Kolissa complained.
“Nah, mine was funnier.”  SFD said.
“Dragon!”  Kolissa shouted.
“You go get breakfast, I’m taking a nap; there was a stranger in my room last night.”  SFD informed.
“Dragon, sometimes I want to kill you, and then there are times like now when I want to skin you alive and pour salt on you over a spiff.”  Kolissa explained.
“Well, when you make up your mind, call me.  Could you bring me up an omelet, extra cheese please?”  SFD smiled and went to the bedroom.
Kolissa couldn’t believe how the dragon could make her somad and then just walk away.  She stood there for a long moment perplexed by this little dragon.  On the one hand, he is a brilliant mind.  He can put clues together where most people don’t even see clues.  And he arrives at the right answer, but other times he acts like a complete moron.  His silliness and playful attitude runs counter to getting the task or the mission accomplished.  The outcome is always the same.  The dragon ends up on top, the hero, and the adored.  She hated him for it.  Just hen her stomach reminded her that it was breakfast time.  She slammed the door as she went to get food.

As she walked towards the breakfast area, somebody grabbed her from behind and held her arms.
“Now!”  A voice behind her exclaimed.
The hum of the super-power-interference field generator made Kolissa’s heart sink.  She was captured.
“Dragon!  Somebody!  Anybody!  Help!”  Kolissa screamed.
It did no good, as she felt the needle stick and then everything went dark.
Kolissa woke with a jerk and found her self bounded to a chair and gagged.
“She’s awake.”  A female voice announced.
“Great.  Now Kolissa, tell us who you are working for.”  A sinister voice demanded.
“Moo Louverry.”  Kolissa managed to mumble through the gag.
“What did she say?”
“I think it was Moe Liverman.”
“Of course, Moe Liverman, my archenemy.  What does he want, Kolissa?”  The sinister voice inquired.
“O! Oo, iddy uts!”  Kolissa responded through the gag.
“Oh, she can’t speak, because of the gag.”
After removing the gag, they asked her again who she was working for.
“Ms. Liberty.”  Kolissa replied.
“Ms. Liberty?  Who’s that?”
“She must be making it up, work her over, boys.”  The sinister voice remarked.
“Sure ting, boss.”  Two thugs replied in unison.
After several stomach punches, Kolissa cried.  “Enough!”
“Are you ready to tell us what we want to hear?”
“Whatever, what do you want?”  Kolissa pleaded.
“We know that you were sent here to get the secret rocket formula.”
“Don’t deny it!  Who are you working for, the Russians?”  The sinister voice insisted.
“Alright!  I’ll tell you, but I’ll need protection.  My employer will think I did a double-cross.”  Kolissa played-along.
“Now, we’re getting somewhere.”
“So you want us to protect you, while we check out your story, is that it?”  The sinister voice asked.
“There is one other thing a need, a cosmic-frequency duplicator.  I had a heart condition, <cough-cough>, and it relieves the <cough-cough> serve pain.”  Kolissa said and let out a scream of pain.
“Boss, dat ting might jam da do-hickey ma-jigger.”
“The name?”  The sinister voice asked Kolissa.
“Moe Liver <cough>.”  Kolissa said.
“Untie her, put her in room C and give her that Cosmic dup.”  The sinister voice ordered.
“Cosmic-frequency duplicator.”  Kolissa interrupted.  The cosmic-frequency duplicator should jam the super-power-interference field generator effects.
After they put her in the room and as she lay in bed, they brought in the device and switched it on.  Kolissa could feel her stomach feeling better and her powers returning.
“Oow!  Get that other guy in here, quick.”  Kolissa cried.
“Ok-ok, I’m going.”
A few seconds later, in walked the two thugs and the female.
“This will have to do.”  Kolissa thought to herself as she fired off confusion.
The thugs started fighting each other and the female was trying to help one or the other.
Kolissa left the room.  She had the sense that they were still in the hotel, but where?
“Kolissa calling Super Fire Dragon.”  Kolissa said into her wrist communicator.  It was a risk, but she was hoping that luck would be on her side.
“Oh hello, Kolissa.  Did ya miss me?”  SFD asked via the communicator.
“No time to explain, activate your homing beacon.”  Kolissa ordered.
“Huh-uh, not until you say that you’re sorry.”  SFD insisted.
“Dragon, sorry for what?  There’s no time for games.”  Kolissa fired back.
“I heard, ‘Dragon, sorry’, so ok, you’re forgiven.”  SFD said turning on his homing beacon.
Kolissa quickly got a fix on the beacon and figured out her escape route.  She made her escape and returned to SFD’s hotel room unnoticed by her captors.
“Dragon, am I glad to see you.”  Kolissa gushed with relief.
“Hey, where’s my omelet?”  SFD asked.
They both laughed.

“I am sorry for the inconvenience.”  Big Stud apologized.
Kolissa couldn’t believe it.  Big Stud had actually helped them locate several listening devices in her room.  Super Fire Dragon helped too, by eating cheese and making wise-cracks.
“Thank you again for all your help, deary.”  Kolissa cooed.
“It was my pleasure.”  Big Stud replied.
“We have an important document that we need kept safe.  Can you help us?”  Super Fire Dragon asked.
“I would be more than happy to help you with that.”  Big Stud snapped back.
“Great, just great.”  SFD replied.
“What document?”  Kolissa asked.
“Oh, it is something Ms. Liberty gave me, did I forget to mention it?”  SFD answered.
“Dragon!  We are supposed to be a team.”  Kolissa shouted.
“Well, Kolissa, there are teams and there are teams.”  SFD remarked.
“I hate you, dragon.”  Kolissa fired back.
“Big Stud, meet me in my room in half an hour, your time, and bring cheese.”  SFD instructed.
“Of course.”  Big Stud replied dutifully.  Big Stud left Kolissa’s room and closed the door behind her.
“What is this all about.”  Kolissa demanded.
“Hush!”  SFD ordered.
“Deary, you don’t hush me.”  Kolissa said sternly.
The dragon walked over to the draperies and tugged on the cord.
“What are you doing now?”  Kolissa asked.
“I am looking for my lost contact.”  SFD said with a wink.
Kolissa was about to say that SFD doesn’t wear contacts when she suddenly understood.
SFD reached behind the drape and pulled out a listening device.
“What are you going to do with your contact when you find it?”  Kolissa asked playing along.
The dragon put the device back where it was.
“I don’t see it; let’s go back to my room.”  SFD said for the benefit of the bug.
They left Kolissa’s room.
“BS left that one in place, do you think she over-looked it.”  Kolissa asked.
“Possibly, but I doubt it.  Kolissa, this is getting intense.  I think our lives are in danger.”  SFD said in an uncharacteristically serious tone.
“Dragon, you’re scaring me.”  Kolissa stated.
“We have 15 minutes to make some fake documents.  We better watch how we play Big Stud.  She is a double agent.”  SFD commented.
“I’ll have Ms. Liberty FAX something over.”  Kolissa explained as she sent a coded message to Paragon City.
“Good idea.  We need a plan for dealing with Big Stud.  She is either on our side or desperately wants us to think she is.”  SFD explained.
They reached SFD’s room and went inside.
“Before I tell you about those documents, let me get some cheese.”  SFD stated.
“Dragon, this is no time for …”  Kolissa began.
Super Fire Dragon scanned the room for listening devices, found a couple and destroyed them.
“Dragon, I thought you already removed the bugs from this room.”  Kolissa insisted.
“I did.”  SFD said.
“While we were in my room, they were in your room.”  Kolissa commented.
“Yup, but what does it mean.”  SFD asked.
“Big Stud is not on our side.”  Kolissa surmised.
“So is our mission over?”  SFD asked.
“There might still be a way.  Dragon, remember the Security Chief.”  Kolissa enlightened.
“He was the guy with the Cheese Danish, who could forget.”  SFD responded.
“We thought that he was so interested in our mission, right?”  Kolissa asked.
“Yup, the nosey clod.”  SFD said.
“Where is he?”  Kolissa asked.
“Kolissa, you’ve done it again.  I had dismissed him as a failed operative.  He could still be behind all this, but it’s worth a shot, and more Cheese Danish.”  SFD said licking his lips.
“After we give Big Stud those documents, let’s pay him a visit.”  Kolissa instructed.
“Good plan except for one thing.”  SFD said.
“What?”  Kolissa asked.
“I told Big Stud to bring cheese, if it is Cheese Danish, we’re in big trouble.”  SFD said.
They both laughed.

“I will guard these documents with my life.”  Big Stud promised as she headed for the door.
“You are too kind.”  Super Fire Dragon said through a phony smile.
“Goodbye, Big Stud.  See you soon.”  Kolissa offered.
The door closed as Big Stud left.  SFD started pacing mumbling to his self.  Kolissa stared at the dragon impatiently.
“Well?”  Kolissa asked breaking the long silence.
“You wouldn’t happen to have a diamond diadem?”  SFD asked coyly.
Kolissa stared at him coldly.  She wished she had Necrophillia’s dark powers right at that moment to send the dragon to hell.
“I’ll take that as a ‘no’.”  SFD replied.
“Dragon, we got to have a reason for contacting the Security Chief.  Your veiled insults are not helping.”  Kolissa shot back.
“Cheese woman!  Why did I bring you along?”  SFD asked annoyed.
“Ms. Liberty sent me with you as punishment and to keep you out of trouble, probably.”  Kolissa snapped back.
“Ok, Kolissa, I wasn’t joking.  We told the Security Chief that Ms. Liberty had a valuable item stolen …”  SFD started.
“Of course!  Sorry, Dragon.  Diamonds are a touchy subject with me.”  Kolissa interrupted.
“Can you …”  SFD started to ask.
“Dragon!”  Kolissa interrupted indignant.
“Get a grip, Kolissa.  I’m sure you can handle it.”  SFD fired back.
“Dragon, “  Kolissa began crossing the room to a chair.  “I can’t do it.  I was out of control.  I thought people owed me diamonds for rescuing them.  Don’t ask me to steal, not diamonds --- not anything.”
“Of course, I do remember the way you were.  We will find another way.”  SFD responded walking over to Kolissa and holding her hands.
“Wow, if anybody walked in right now, they might actually think we like each other.”  Kolissa said after a brief moment.
“And she’s back.”  SFD said walking over to the liquor cabinet to get he’s thinking Brandy.
“Son of a tabby!  It’s so simple!”  Kolissa burst.
“Kolissa, how much of this have I had to drink?”  SFD questioned.
“No, don’t you see.  We ask for the Security Chief’s help in …”  Kolissa began.
“Finding the stolen valuable.  Cheese woman, you are brilliant!”  SFD interrupted with excitement.
“Well, you didn’t bring me along for my good looks.”  Kolissa joked.
They both laughed.

“You should have come to me in the first place.”  The Security Chief said staring at Super Fire Dragon.
“A thousand pardons, I was overcome with cheese Danish.”  Super Fire Dragon replied.
“Yes, you did have a healthy appetite, my friend.”  The Security Chief countered.
“Listen deary, we are not here to exchange barbs.”  Kolissa interjected.
“I see.  You failed to make any progress on your own, and now you want my help.”  The Security Chief fired back.
“Ok, I see where this is going.  Of course you may have my autograph and a selfie.”  SFD said.
“I want your autograph on the selfie, and made out to ‘My Best Friend’, but leave the name blank … for eBay … I mean security reasons.”  The Security Chief snapped back.
“Oh, you are on the ball.”  Kolissa observed.
“Yes, this isn’t New York or Paris, but I’m not asleep at the wheel either.”  The Security Chief stated.
“Fine, this is what is going down.  We found listening devices in Kolissa’s room, and she was abducted.  We think that some one might be trying to spy on us.”  SFD explained.
“You amuse me, dragon.”  The Security Chief said.
“No, it’s true.  We found several bugging devices in my hotel room.”  Kolissa remarked.
“This is South Korean, listening devices are everywhere.  When I go to bed, there are half a dozen in my pajamas.”  The Security Chief joked.
“Now you amuse me, Security Chief.”  SFD joked.
“Great, the two of you can go have a boys’ night out when this is all finished.”  Kolissa insisted.
“I liked her better when she was stripped and beaten.”  SFD commented.
“Dragon, my friend, you are a treasure.”  The Security Chief said.
“Dragon!”  Kolissa fumed.
“Now, now, don’t be too hard on him; that was kind of funny after all.”  The Security Chief admonished.
“Well, anyway, we’re not used to being spied upon.”  SFD stated.
“That is the trouble with you Americans.  You simply don’t know how to take a little espionage.”  The Security Chief observed.
“By the way, do you have any idea who might have abducted me?  There said that Moe Liverman was their enemy and they mentioned the Russians.”  Kolissa asked.
“Moe Liverman!  What are you two doing in my country?”  The Security Chief asked seriously.
“Who is Moe Liverman?”  SFD asked.
“Moe is the biggest under world syndicate leader in all of Korea.”  The Security Chief replied.
“Of course, The Syndicate.  Kolissa, you didn’t mention that they where wearing Suzuki jackets.”  SFD rifled off.
“No you idiot.”  Kolissa and The Security Chief fired back at the dragon.
“Not the Syndicate.  He is involved with a cartel.”  The Security Chief tried to explain.
“Bugs Bunny?”  SFD asked.
“Not a cartoon, a cartel.”  The Security Chief shouted.
“Honestly, I have to put up with this all day long.”  Kolissa said in her woe is me voice.
“The dragon, he is kind of like a cartoon.”  The Security Chief stated.
“You know what?”  SFD said out of the blue.
“What?”  The Security Chief asked.
“I’m going to tell you more details about our mission.”  SFD stated.
“Dragon, no!”  Kolissa interrupted.
“Kolissa, don’t try to stop me.”  SFD replied.
“I can have her arrested, if you like.”  The Security Chief suggested.
“No!  No that won’t be necessary.”  SFD exclaimed.  Super Fire Dragon fearing Kolissa’s confusion power quickly switched on his defenses.
“Should I be worried about something?”  The Security Chief asked.
“Dragon!  Some times you make me so mad.”  Kolissa remarked.
“Paragon City has kicked out all the supers.  With the exception of a few of us, even the Rogue Isles have been purged of supers.”  SFD explained.
“Dragon, that is enough; we don’t know which side he is on.”  Kolissa warned.
“We have to take the chance.”  SFD countered.
“All the supers kicked out of Paragon City?  Wow!”  The Security Chief said shocked.
“No we don’t.  Let’s not chance it.”  Kolissa said.
“Security Chief, do you have super-power-interference field generator?”  SFD asked bluntly.
“Dragon!”  Kolissa cried.
“Switch it on, now.”  SFD ordered.
“My friend, I do not know what you are talking about.”  The Security Chief informed.
“Kolissa is out of control.  We must stop her from using her confusion power on you.”  SFD answered.
“Don’t tell him that!”  Kolissa shouted.
“I wish I have a superpower inter field machine or whatever you said.”  The Security Chief said frightened.
Kolissa began firing off powers that looked like confusion, but were like mind—link and other team buffs.  The Security Chief ducked for cover.
“Kolissa!  No, don’t confuse the Security Chief!”  SFD shouted.
Kolissa fired off yet another harmless power.
“Chief, you got to use your super-power-interference field generator.”  SFD ordered.
“I don’t have one of those things, please, make her stop!”  The Security Chief pleaded.
“This is serious; I’m protected by my toggles.  You will get confused.”  SFD warned.
“I don’t have any kind of generator super power or otherwise.”  The Security Chief admitted.
“If you get confused, you might try to attack me.  I would have to defend myself.  You understand.”  SFD explained.
Kolissa fired off a few more do no harm powers.
“I swear to Buddha himself, I have nothing to stop her.”  The Security Chief begged.
“Ok, Kolissa, he doesn’t have one.”  SFD stated.
“Are you sure?”  Kolissa asked.
“Yep, he spilled some water on the floor.”  SFD stated.
“But he wasn’t drinking water.”  Kolissa stated.
Seeing Kolissa in a calm state, The Security Chief surmised that it was a ploy of some kind.  Regaining his composure, The Security Chief rose to his feet more than a bit angry and wearing wet trousers.
“Alright you two, get out of my office.  Get out of my office, now!”  The Security Chief demanded.
“Come on, Dragon, let’s go.”  Kolissa said.
“But I didn’t get any cheese Danish.”  SFD replied.
They both laughed.

“I still don’t trust him.”  Kolissa confided in Super Fire Dragon as the two returned to Super Fire Dragon’s hotel room.
“Hang-on, I think I left the water boiling.”  Super Fire Dragon said as he scanned the room for listening devices.
“Oh, I keep forgetting about that.”  Kolissa confessed.
“We’re clear.”  SFD announced.
“Clear of what?”  Kolissa asked.
“Oh sorry, that’s an industry term.  It means that we are not being recorded or filmed.”  SFD explained.
“So no bugs, but how do you know about terms like ‘We’re Clear’?”  Kolissa asked.
“Come on, Booby, I was a director at one time.”  SFD reminded Kolissa.
“Oh that.  You directed a video we used against The Resistance.  That doesn’t make you a Hollywood insider.”  Kolissa said.
“Everybody’s a critic.”  SFD said as he flopped down on the sofa in his room.
“Dragon.”  Kolissa said exasperated.
“Anyway, the security was plenty scared.  If he had a super-power-interference field generator you can bet that he would have used the thing.”  SFD explained.
“So either he wasn’t behind my abduction or the generator wasn’t in his office.”  Kolissa said.
“Ok, maybe the generator is kept elsewhere, maybe it is being used on another hero, but chances are that he would have one in his office for protection.”  SFD explained.
“Ok, ok, you’re right, but we don’t know if he was behind the listening devices.”  Kolissa reminded.
“He didn’t mention the listening devices in my room, but hinted that they are everywhere.”  SFD said.
“Well, being the Security Chief he probably knows all about the listening devices.”  Kolissa insisted.
“I concede that point, but he seemed surprised when you mentioned Moe Liverman.”  SFD replied.
“Also, he didn’t mention Big Stud or the documents.”  Kolissa listed.
“Right.  Can you get abducted again and get more information?”  SFD asked.
Kolissa picked up the nearby phone directory and threw it at him.  The dragon ducked.
“This calls for thinking Brandy.”  SFD said as he bound to his feet.
“We are sure that Big Stud is a double-agent.  She is pretending to work for us while working for somebody else, but who?”  Kolissa asked.
“You mean ‘but whom’, Kolissa.”  SFD said while pouring a healthy amount into his trusty Brandy Snifter.
“Dragon, don’t make me come over there.”  Kolissa shot back.
“Think, woman, what did the abductors want, what did they say?”  SFD said trying to find any scrap of a hint of a clue to this puzzle.
“Well let’s see, they wanted to know who I was working for…Dragon, they didn’t know who Ms. Liberty is.”  Kolissa remembered.
“The Security Chief called Ms. Liberty to confirm my identity.”  SFD exclaimed.
“Breakthrough!”  Kolissa announced.
“Yes, when I mentioned Ms. Liberty in front of Big Stud …”  SFD started.
“She acted as though she knew about her.”  Kolissa exclaimed.
“Big Stud is not working for the abductors.”  SFD continued.
“My abductors are a ‘red herring’ as it were.”  Kolissa said.
“Yes, you were abducted by a bunch of nut-jobs with no connection to the Atlas Park Plot.”  SFD stated.
“This is good news.  Wait, why am I happy to be a victim of random street crime?”  Kolissa said confused.
“You’re asking me?”  SFD said impersonating Umbral Schrumbral he Jewish Warshade.
They both laughed.

“So what do we know?” Super Fire Dragon asked sipping his Brandy.
“Super Fire Dragon Crunch really is good cereal.”  Kolissa said while eating breakfast.
“Yes, they’re great, just great.”  SFD said playing along.
“Ok, ok, let’s see.  The Security Chief seems to be honest.  Big Stud seems tricky.  And you seem preoccupied.”  Kolissa analyzed.
“You’re right.  Kolissa, I’m on a secret mission apart from your mission assigned by Ms. Liberty.”  SFD confessed.
“My mission from Ms. Liberty was to be your companion on this trip.  What’s your mission?”  Kolissa asked.
“My mission is to kill you.”  SFD blurted out.
“What?”  Kolissa asked in shock.
“April fools!”  SFD laughed.
“Dragon, that wasn’t funny.”  Kolissa admonished.
“You should have seen the look on your face.”  SFD laughed.
“Dragon!  Oh, you make me so mad sometimes.”  Kolissa raised her voice.
“You were all, ‘What?’, it was priceless.”  SFD continued laughing.
“Dragon, it’s a good thing that your toggles are on.”  Kolissa threatened.
“You know Necrophillia is in prison for that little stunt you pulled with Fred?”  SFD asked.
“It couldn’t have happened to a nicer super.”  Kolissa remarked.
“Well, I like Necrophillia.”  SFD stated.
“Really, Dragon?  I had no idea.”  Kolissa replied.
“No, not like-like-like, but more like like as a friend.”  SFD tried to explain.
“Necrophilla and Super Fire Dragon sitting in a tree, K-I-S-S-I-N-G.”  Kolissa said in sing-song.
“Kolissa, knock it off.”  SFD replied.
“Necrophilla and Super Fire Dragon sitting in a tree, K-I-S-S-I-N-G.”  Kolissa repeated in sing-song.
“Kolissa, you should have been a tanker; you have that taunt down.”  SFD rejoined.
“Look, whatever happened to Fred was his own fault.  And in my opinion, they should have thrown away the key a long time ago when it comes to Necrophillia.”  Kolissa explained.
“Well, you’re probably right about Necrophillia.”  SFD replied.
“Damn straight.”  Kolissa said.
They both laughed.

“Have you thought up a plan yet; that is your third brandy.”  Kolissa scolded.
“Look, it’s a process.  You can’t rush genius.”  Super Fire Dragon replied sipping his brandy.
“How about we charge in the enemy base and …”  Kolissa suggested.
“Ha!  I wish it were that simple.”  SFD countered.
“There has to be something we can do.”  Kolissa said.
“I’m doing it.”  SFD stated.

Kolissa never liked just sitting around doing nothing.  She likes to plan a trap and spring it on her prey.  Like the time she kidnapped Necrophillia, that was brilliant.  Her favorite things to do are to be on a team of supers and provide support by buffing her team members.  She thought back to those times when using her dart gun motivated people.  “That stupid dragon needs a dart.”  She thought, but realized that he still has his toggles on.  If she knew who to attack that would help, a lot.

Super Fire Dragon sipped his brandy, gently warming it with his paws.  Brandy should be an enhancement or at least an inspiration.  Yes, the brandy power!  What a great idea.  Getting back to this mission, why did Ms. Liberty send Kolissa with him?  She is such a drag.  She never seems to appreciate his sense of humor.  She doesn’t even drink brandy---warm---sweet brandy.  Oh well, more for the dragon.

There was a knock at the door.
“No, don’t get up.  I’ll answer it.”  Kolissa said sarcastically at the dragon who was undisturbed by the sudden visitor at the door.
“I come to see if you need your help.”  Big Stud mangled.
“Come in, come in.”  Kolissa answered.
“Look, I can only stay a minute.  I have important news.”  BS continued making her way to the couch where SFD was still sitting.
“Big Stud, always a pleasure.  Do sit down.  Tell the dragon all your troubles.”  SFD said feeling the effects of the brandy.
“Dragon!”  Kolissa said sharply.
“I overheard a plot against you two.”  BS said as she settled next to SFD, but not too close.
The dragon was smiling at Big Stud trying to make eye contact with her.  Big Stud nervously glanced around the room, her eyes darting back and forth.  Kolissa noticed that the dragon was in lover-boy mode, but she also noticed that Big Stud seemed more on edge than usual.

“Big Stud, tell me about this plot you overheard.”  Kolissa ordered.
“No, lets go into my bedroom where there is more privacy.”  SFD suggested trying to wink, but blinking instead.
“Dragon, is there a matter with your eyes?  You blink like that.”  BS asked.
“No, he just had too much brandy.”  Kolissa informed.
“Never mind her, she’s jealous.  Want to see my stamp collection; I keep it in the bedroom?”  SFD asked blinking his eyes rapidly.
“Dragon, are you trying to seduce me?”  BS asked shocked.
“Better you than me that’s for sure.”  Kolissa chimed-in.
“Kolissa, don’t worry, you’ll get your turn.”  SFD slurred.

“Meet me tomorrow, after he sobers up and I will bring the details about the plot.”  BS said walking towards the door.
“Well ok, where should we meet?”  Kolissa asked.
“We will always have Kings Row.”  SFD said before falling asleep.
“The old town square, by the water fountain.  Try to not be followed.”  BS instructed and left Super Fire Dragon’s hotel room.

“Great, just great, what do I do with a dragon passed-out on the couch and listening devices in my room, great, just great?”  Kolissa asked no one.
“Hey, that’s my line.”  The dragon woke just long enough to remark about what Kolissa said and pass-out again.

Bursting through the door, Kolissa used a ladle as a drumstick and a 2 quart saucepan as a drum.  Waking with a surprised snort, the dragon gave a blast of breath of fire.

“Dragon!”  Kolissa shouted singed.
“Sorry, Kolissa.  I had to kill that Red Cap Fiend who was pounding on my head.”  SFD replied.
“That was no Red Cap that was me trying to wake you up.  Now, I’m burnt to a crisp!”  Kolissa complained.
“Ow, that explains why my head still hurts.  Why are you in my room?”
“I came in to wake you, it’s past noon, and we’re not getting any closer to solving this case.”
“But that doesn’t explain why you were pounding on my head.”  SFD demanded.
“I wasn’t.  You had too much Brandy last night.”  Kolissa stated.
“Yes, the double-edged sword that is Brandy.  Ow.”  SFD mumbled.

“I’ll get changed, you get ready and we’ll meet back here in an hour.”  Kolissa ordered.
“No!  I’ll get ready; you get changed, and meet me back here in an hour.”  SFD ordered.
“That’s what I just said.”  Kolissa replied.
“No excuses.”
“Dragon!”  Kolissa fired.
“You’re wasting time, ow.”  SFD retorted.

Kolissa turned and walked away.  She couldn’t deal with the dragon when he gets like this.  She sighed as she passed the hall mirror, another good Arachnos Costume ruined.  Lord Recluse used to supply her with all the costumes she could destroy, but now that she’s a hero the costumes don’t come cheap.  ICON doesn’t even carry her size.  Fortunately she knows a way to the Rogue Isles where she can attack a Fortunata trainee and take her costume.  Sure that might not be all heroic on the up-and-up, but sometimes one must bend the rules.  After all, a hero MUST look good. 

Super Fire Dragon taking his shower, flossing his fangs and oiling his wings suddenly had the flash of brilliance that the Brandy was supposed to induce last night.  Wrapping a towel around his lower wet body, he ran after Kolissa.  She had already left the hotel room.  “Oh well”, thought the little dragon, “she’ll be back in an hour.”  Glancing down at his wrist watch.  “Fifteen minutes!  I better hurry.”  SFD continued.  After rushing around getting ready, and straightening up his hotel room, he was ready to tell Kolissa his break through idea.  Would she be ready to hear it?

There was a knock at the door.  Why Kolissa bothered to knock was more out of habit than courtesy.  Super Fire Dragon walked towards the door, and Kolissa walked in.

“Oh hey Kolissa, about time you showed up.”  SFD snapped trying to put Kolissa off her game.
“So’s your old man.”  Kolissa replied knowing how to deflect the verbal abuse that was sometimes Super Fire Dragon.
“Sit down, I have a plan and you’re going to love it.”  SFD beamed ignoring the playful banter.
“Ok, Dragon, what’s up?”  Kolissa asked sitting on the couch.
“What this mission needs, why didn’t I think of this earlier, what this mission needs is villainy.”  SFD said excited.
“No!  I’m not stealing diamonds!  We’ve been through all this before!”  Kolissa shouted jumping to her feet and nearly banging her head on the ceiling.
“Kolissa, I understand, but this is different.  Please sit down.”  SFD replied.
“How is this any different?”  Kolissa asked not sure what to make of this latest attempt to get her to steal diamonds.
“Well for starters, there are other things besides diamonds that you could … borrow … without asking first.”  SFD said meekly.

Kolissa’s mind raced.  Stealing gold or silver, rubies or emeralds were about the same as stealing diamonds, just not as nice and sparkly.  Diamonds are so nice.  Their clear white color with polished facets set off her red and black Arachnos costume perfectly.  The way the colors danced in her eyes when she looked at them, oh sweet diamonds.
“What do you want me to … borrow … without asking first?”  Kolissa asked echoing the dragon.
“Secrets, plans, documents, orders, in short, evidence.”  SFD said his dark black eyes getting the biggest Kolissa had ever seen.
“Interesting.”  Kolissa cooed, her thoughts of diamonds faded quickly as she imagined skillfully gathering evidence.
“You can start at the Security Chief’s office.  Try to find who is behind the missing heroes.”  SFD explained.
“Let’s see, I’ll need a spy camera, access to a cloud web site, an alibi and of course several uninterrupted minutes in his office.”  Kolissa planned out loud.
“We will start working out the details right away, but first let’s have lunch.  I haven’t had any cheese in days and days.”  SFD replied.
“Dragon, you had cheese fondue with cheese cocktails and cheese sandwiches last night with your Brandy.”  Kolissa complained.
“Yes, that was last night, days ago.  Try to keep up.”  SFD admonished.
“Oh bother.”  Kolissa sighed.
“Come along, the cheese waits for no dragon.”  SFD said opening the door.
“Great, just great.”  Kolissa mumbled as she walked out the door.
“It’s not all that bad, deary.”  SFD said.
They both laughed.

“My associate and I have been here…”  Kolissa began.
“The Dragon?”  Big Stud asked interrupting.
“Yes, the dragon.  We were wondering if we could attend some sort of dinner, or party, something official.”  Kolissa asked.
“Oh, right, you have visited from Amerika, you should have State Dinner, but most people find those boring and dull.  Why would you want to go?”  Big Stud asked suspicious.
“Oh, deary, I know how dull those parties can be, let me tell you, but we need to mingle with the higher ups.  The company we represent needs to get to know those who are in-charge, you understand.”  Kolissa charmed.

One might be very surprised just how charming Kolissa can be.  Some people believe that it is her confusion power.  Others think that it must be the Arachnos in her that is tricky and duplicitous.  I’m guessing that it is just another one of her super-abilities.

The arrangements were made and soon it was a few hours before the State Function.
“But the baseball shirt is more comfortable.”  Super Fire Dragon complained.
“Deary, this party isn’t about your comfort, remember?”  Kolissa insisted.
“Ok, this dragon will wear the monkey suit.”  SFD replied.
“Technically, a monkey suit is a tuxedo, but whatever Dragon.”   Kolissa stated.
“Ok, do YOU remember the signal?”  SFD asserted.
“Yes, yes, Dragon.  When you have the breath of fire attack, I sneak out.  We’ve been over this twelve times, mostly trying to get you to remember it.  After all, it was my plan.”  Kolissa snapped back.
“Well it won’t work.”  SFD said.
“What?!?”  Kolissa asked stunned.
“Psych!”  SFD laughed.
“Dragon!  Be serious, if I get caught … “  Kolissa explained.
“I never heard of you.”  SFD shot back.
“I hate you Dragon.”  Kolissa bantered back.
“Look, we got this.  If all else fails, use your powers.”  SFD said.
“Yeah, what could happen, we’re supers.”  Kolissa remarked.

There was a knock at the door.
“Just a minute!”  SFD shouted in a high falsetto voice.
“Dragon, what are you doing?”  Kolissa asked.
“Hey, I haven’t had any cheese in a while, I panicked.
They both laughed.

Opening the door, Kolissa let Big Stud in.
“Who was that woman I heard?”  Big Stud asked.
“I had a frog in my throat.”  Super Fire Dragon said.
“Let me see.  Maybe I can remove frog.”  Big Stud offered.
“Dragon, where did you get a frog, and why didn’t you give me any?”  Kolissa asked playfully.
“I swallowed it already.  Remember Kolissa, you ate yours last night.”  SFD countered.
“I’m thinking, Dragon win that one.”  Big Stud commented.
“Yes, and he gets very annoying at times, too.”  Kolissa complained.

They trio made their way through the spacious corridors of the classy hotel to the equally classy grand ball room.  Kolissa was wearing a black evening gown with red stash tied around her small waist.  The dragon was wearing a black suit coat with matching black tie.  His white dress shirt offset his black dress shoes.  Kolissa insisted that he wear black dress trousers with suspenders. 
“I feel like Webster at one of George’s award dinners.”  SFD claimed.
“You look like Webster at one of George’s award dinners.”  Kolissa shot back.
“Thanks, Kolissa, I can always count on you.”  SFD returned fire.
“He looks more like ALF to me.”  Big Stud stated.
They all laughed.

After the introduction were made, and after the dragon had made bad jokes at the expense of those present, the evening started.

The guests were served a small garden salad consisting of leaves of lettuce, strings of carrots cut lengthwise, rings of onions and a croton.  Next, they were served a piece of chicken breast that had been boiled and steamed broccoli with a diner roll.  Dessert was a small dish of raspberry sherbet with a spree of mint.  Brandy was served after dinner.

The dragon made conversation discussing those times where he helped to save Paragon City.  To hear him recount the exploits of him and his team, one might get the impression that his team was more of a burden than actual assistance on those missions.  When Super Fire Dragon begun telling the story of how he brought in the great Kolissa, she had heard enough.  Kolissa listed in detail all the times that SFD needed and received help from her and others on their teams.

“I liked my version better, babe.”  SFD remarked.
“How many times have I told you not to call me ‘babe’?  I’m not your babe.”  Kolissa shouted.
The two jumped to their feet to face off, which always looked silly.  Kolissa is a slender 8 foot tall while Super Fire Dragon is a chunky 4 foot tall with wings.  Kolissa made some insulting remark about the dragon.  SFD sneezed breath of fire.  Kolissa ran-off.

“I trust that we won’t be bothered by her again.”  SFD said.
They all laughed.

This reminded her of the old days.  Oh the fun; sneaking around corners, picking locks, dodging surveillance cameras and escaping with the goods.  This time the goods were not for some shady contact or sleazy newspaper.  It wasn’t even for Lord Recluse himself.  It was for Ms. Liberty.  Although she never really got along with Ms. Liberty, she tried to be nice to her.  If you get on Ms. Liberty’s bad side, you might end-up in some far off land baby sitting a dunce like Super Fire Dragon.  She almost let out a yell at that last thought.  “I had better concentrate on this job more.”  Kolissa thought to herself.

Up a head was the door to the Security Chief’s office.
“Only two guards, they must not think to highly of the chief.”  Kolissa thought to herself with a chuckle.
Slinking up to the office door swinging her hips, Kolissa approached the guards.  “Just my luck, they’re females.”  Kolissa mumbled to herself.

“Hold it right there, girl.”  One of the guards demanded.
“Now ladies, I just came by to ask you a question.”  Kolissa said being charming.
“Look, we have orders to shoot.”  The other guard said.
“There’s no need for that, all I need to know is, where’s the powder room?”  Kolissa lied still approaching the guards.
“What?  Can’t you read?  There are signs everywhere.”  A guard replied.
“Yes, but you see, I don’t have any change, and I need something for my, you know.”  Kolissa said nearly in range.
“What are you talking about?”  One of the guards asked.
“You know, 월간주기”  The other guard said.
“Oh!”  The one guard said, and both guards laughed.

Kolissa was close enough and fired off confusion.  The two guards called each other names and started slapping each other.  Before it could progress to hair-pulling and biting, Kolissa picked the lock to the Security Chief’s office door.  She slipped in.  Turning on only a desk lamp that she brought down to the floor, Kolissa started examining various documents from various desk drawers.  It turns out that the Security Chief is into Gay Porn.  “What a creep!”  Kolissa said with disgust and almost out loud.

Meanwhile, back at the party Super Fire Dragon is the center of attention as he tells his stories.
“…And that is how I won the War of 1812.”  SFD said ending yet another long-winded, rambling, disjointed story about his heroics.
“Super Fire Dragon Sir, you are quite remarkable.”  An interested guest commented.
“I still don’t understand how you were able to trick the Roman Emperor.”  Another guest asked.
“Don’t you remember, he had King Henry the VIII of England to battle the Nazis?”  Another guest answered.
“Oh, that’s right.  And while they were busy, King Tut was able to get the Bolsheviks to back his coup.”  The second guest responded.
“Tell us another one.”  Another guest suggested.
“Yes, please.”  The first guest asked.
“Why certainly, but first I need a little liquid encouragement.”  SFD crossed to the honor bar.  He had his choice of several exceptional Brandies.  He filled his Brandy snifter with his favorite V.S.O.P. and headed back to the group he was before.

“Gentlemen, do you want to know how I single-handedly ended the hundreds’ year war or how I saved the stock market from another Monday crash?”  SFD said loving the attention.
“Tell us about the Clockwork King.”  Some guest said.  Kolissa had told a story where Super Fire Dragon needed her help rescuing him from the Clockwork King.
“Guards!  Throw that man out!”  The first guest demanded.
The security guards came and dragged the trouble-maker out by his arm pits.

“It was a cold black night, like any other.  I was fast asleep in my bed at my swanky penthouse apartment on Talos Island.  Several hours later, my alarm clock started making noise.  My first thought was that the clock was broken, but then I remembered setting the clock to sound at that very hour, the night before.”  SFD started his story.
“Wow, this is going to be a good one.”  A guest remarked
They all shushed him.

Now back to Kolissa, already searching the Security Chief’s office.
She couldn’t believe her eyes.  There it was staring right back at her in black and white.  It was shocking to say the least.  She quickly took several pictures of the document, and put the office back as she had found it.  Turning off the light and making her way to the door, she peered out the door.  The guards were back at their posts looking a little ragged as if they had been in a fight.

“Do NOT go in there!  I had Taco Bell for lunch!”  Kolissa shouted as she burst forth from the door.
The guards were stunned just long enough for them to hesitate before lifting their rifles.  Kolissa fired off confusion.  As she ran away, she could have sworn that she heard one of the guards say, “Oh no, not again!”
I don't know when City of Heroes will return, or do I?

Kolissa easily made her way back to her hotel room.  She silently printed out the various pictures she had taken with her phone.  She hid one set of photos behind a painting of a lovely landscape of South Korea.  Another group she hid behind the toilet.  And yet another set went under the mattress.  She would have to get one set FAX’ed to Ms. Liberty, but that will have to wait until the stupid dragon comes back from the party.  She waited.

Back at the party, the Security Chief was called away to the telephone.  The dragon was in the middle of another fantastic tale hip-hopping through human history.
“Where’s Kolissa?”  Someone asked interrupting the dragon’s story.
“She ran off.”
“Surely she has had time to change out of those singed garments.”
“Hey, that’s my partner you’re talking about.  Get your minds out of the gutter.”  Super Fire Dragon feigned indignity.
“We weren’t … “
The dragon threw his drink at the interrupting guest and stormed out.
“Idiot!  He was just getting to the good part about Queen Elizabeth and King Kong having an affair.”

“My guards were found mud wrestling, without mud, in front of my office.”  The Security Chief told the table of people where he had been sitting.
“Were they drunk, chief?”
“No.  I suspect foul play.  Foul play…named Kolissa.”  The Security Chief stated.
“Do you have any proof?”
“Proof?  I will either get some or make some.”  Security Chief yelled.
“Chief, lower your voice.”
“This party is over!”  Security Chief shouted drawing his sidearm.
People panicked for the doors.

“You have out-done yourself, Kolissa.”  Super Fire Dragon commented as he examined the photographs taken by Kolissa.
“Thank you.”
“You really are a top-operative.” SFD admitted.
“You know that would mean so much more if it hadn’t come from you.”  Kolissa purred.
“You are too kind.”  SFD said not completely paying attention.

Just then there was a knock at the door.
“I’ll get it.”  SFD said.
“This is your room, you should get it.”  Kolissa commented.
The dragon crossed the room and opened the door.
“Dragon, The Security Chief wants you to see him, a-sat.”  Big Stud mangled.
Both Kolissa and the Dragon were used to Big Stud’s English.  Obviously she meant that the Security Chief wanted to see Super Fire Dragon as soon as possibly.
Big Stud and the dragon left Kolissa.

Moments later, there was another knock on the door.
“That stupid dragon, why doesn’t he let himself in?”  Kolissa thought to herself.
Kolissa crossed the room and opened the door expecting to see Super Fire Dragon.
Instead, there were ten or more security guards.
The guards opened fire with their automatic rifles.
Kolissa cast confusion on the guards, and nearly half of the guards starting shooting each other.
Kolissa fired her wrist darts, but there were too many of them.
Kolissa released her pet Mu, but it was too little too late.

The great Kolissa kissed the floor.

Kolissa frantically tried to assemble a wakey, a special elixir that would bring her back to full strength.
She didn’t have the correct ingredients.
The guards left, but she lay there.
“Com’on, think girl.”  She thought to herself.
There was nothing.  There was no Hospital Teleport system available.
There was nothing she could do.
“Curse that stupid dragon; why isn’t he here to help me.”  Kolissa thought.
That was her last thought.  She died.

“I haven’t a clue!”  SFD insisted.
“I think you know exactly why Kolissa was confusing my guards.”  The Security Chief accused.
“If Kolissa were to confuse your stupid guards, I’m sure that they deserved it.”  SFD stormed.
“Dragon, I’m warning you.”
“No, I’m warning you.  If you interfere with me or Kolissa, you will be sorry.”  SFD threatened.
Super Fire Dragon stormed out of the Security Chief’s office and back to his hotel room.

He saw that the door was standing open.  He decided to fly.  Super Fire Dragon rarely flies inside, there is too many opportunities for disaster, but this time something told him to get there quick.
As he landed, he could see Kolissa lying motionless on the floor.
“Kolissa!  Kolissa!”  SFD called.
He felt her cold icy hand.
He checked for a pulse, and for breathing.
He gave her a wakey.
Nothing worked.
“Nooooooooooooooooooooooo!”  He cried.
After sobbing for a few minutes, he knew exactly what to do.
He made all the arrangements to get Kolissa’s body transported back to Paragon City.
He also got his airline ticket.
He packed and hid the secret photos in his luggage.
He took care of everything, except one little thing.

“Hello, Security Chief, yeah this is Super Fire Dragon.  We need to talk.”  SFD said over the phone.
The security chief thought that maybe the dragon was ready to explain why Kolissa had confused his guards, but he was more concerned with the idea that the dragon might want revenge.
Just then, Super Fire Dragon burst into the Security Chief’s office.
“Well hello, Dragon.”  The Security Chief said hoping that the dragon wasn’t angry.
The dragon grabbed the sucurity chief and flew out the window.
“Hey, you cut my new suit.”
“I don’t care.”  SFD said sternly.
“I think I might be bleeding.”
“Good.”  SFD said coldly.
“Dragon, what are you planning?”
“This is your flying lesson.”  SFD said with teeth clenched.
“What do you mean?”
At that, Super Fire Dragon released the security chief from a great height over water.

“What was that?”  A Fisherman asked after hearing a huge splash.
“How would I know?”  His partner exclaimed.
The two maneuvered their boat towards where their thought the splash came from.

“Help!”  A voice cried out.
The fishermen pulled the Security Chief out of the water.
“Thank you, thank you.”  The Security Chief graveled.
“What happened?”  One of the fishermen asked.
“Why were you in the water, on a Sunday, at this hour?”  Asked the other fisherman.
“Ow, I think my arm is broken.”  The Security Chief complained.

“Here let me see, I know first aide.”  One of the fishermen replied.
“I really do appreciate this.”  The Security Chief admitted.
“So what happened?”  The other fisherman asked.
“Let me explain.  I am the security chief for this section.”  The Security Chief started.
“Hello, I’m Clyde and this is my brother Daryl.”  Clyde, one of the fishermen introduced.
“Hi, Clyde.”  The Security Chief greeted.
“We are honored to have the security chief on our vessel.”  Daryl said.
“Happy you guys picked me up.”  The Security Chief bubbled.
“Daryl, set a course back for our ship.”  Clyde ordered.
“But we’re empty, the Capt’n will have our hides for sure.”  Daryl replied.
“This is a V.I.P. with a medical emergency.”  Clyde demanded.
“Right.”  Daryl said, setting the course.

“So why were you out swimming with your clothes on, nice suit, by the way.”  Daryl asked.
“I wasn’t, and I’m not wearing a suit.”  Clyde answered.
“I think he means me.”  The Security Chief stated.
“Of course.”  Clyde replied.
“Well, fellows, it was like this.  An idiot dropped me to my death from a great height.”  The Security Chief explained.
“Who would do such a horrible thing?”  Daryl asked.
“Ouch!  Watch it.”  The Security Chief said in pain.
“Sorry, yes your arm is broken.  I can’t set it here.  You need a doctor.”  Clyde said.
“Super Fire Dragon!  If I ever get my hands on you!”  The Security Chief shouted.
“Super Fire Dragon!  He is my favorite!”  Daryl said.
“Can you get me Super Fire Dragon’s autograph?”  Clyde asked.
“Only on a copy of a signed confession.”  The Security Chief said through clenched teeth.

Meanwhile:  The airline picked-up Kolissa’s travel casket that SFD had the funeral home bring over.  The airline also loaded Kolissa’s luggage and Dragon’s luggage.  All was going as planned, but Super Fire Dragon was no where to be found.

Meanwhile:  He thought about how peacefully and beautiful it is to fly by wing power.  The little dragon soared through the air.  He knew that he couldn’t return to South Korea.  The Security Chief should have been picked up by that fishing boat by now.  Well, if he survived the fall.  Either way, SFD was high tailing it for Tokyo.
I don't know when City of Heroes will return, or do I?

“Very funny, Necrophillia.”  One Prison Guard said.
“Yeah, we ain’t falling for that one, again.”  Another Prison Guard replied.
“What are you two, handsome guards talking about, now?”  Necrophillia said.  Necrophillia had long since learned to work the system.  She gets 10 extra hours of TV each week, extra helpings of dessert on cheesecake day, and nobody messing with her.  Of course, Necrophillia, being Necrophillia wouldn’t have very many people messing with her.

“Like you don’t know?”  The guard said.
“Yeah, like you don’t know that you imitated Ms. Liberty and told us to take you to her office.”  The other guard interjected.
“What is taking you so long?  Bring Necrophillia to me, now.”  Ms. Liberty said over the guard’s two-way radios.  Ms. Liberty did not sound happy.

“I think she means it.”  Necrophillia commented.
“Hey, how can you make your voice sound like Ms. Liberty over our walkie-talkies?”  The guard asked.
“Let’s take her to Ms. Liberty, that will show her.”  The other guard said.
“On our way.”  The guard said into the walkie-talkie.
The guards opened Necrophillia’s cell and escorted her to Ms. Liberty’s office.

“Necrophillia, do come in, come in.”  Ms. Liberty said as the trio approached her office door.
“Hello deary, locked any innocent super heroes up, today?”  Necrophilla said imitating Kolissa.
“Good god woman, show a like respect.”  Dr. X-Rays shouted.
Necrophillia hadn’t noticed it before, but there was a medical bed set-up in Ms. Liberty’s office.  Laid upon the bed was a motionless Kolissa.
“It that Kolissa?”  Necrophillia asked moving towards the bed.
“Yes, Xavier has been working on her for hours, tell her.”  Ms. Liberty said turning away to hide her moist eyes.
“Is she dead?”  Necrophillia asked.
“No, of course not.”  Dr. X-Rays said.
“Then what …”  Necrophillia started to ask.
“She is not dead, but she is not alive.  She is not even undead.  She is not in a coma.  She is half way between life and death.”  Dr. X-Rays explained.
“We thought that you could help.”  Ms. Liberty said with hope in her voice.

“I’m not an empathy … I’m a …”  Necrophillia started.
“We know what you are.”  Ms.liberty said.
“You see, you have experience with the dead and the undead.”  Dr. X-Rays suggested.
“Oh, I get it, because I have necrophilia.”  Necrophillia said with surprise.
“No!”  Ms. Liberty shouted.
“Good, because I don’t swing that way.”  Necrophillia chuckled

“We need you to work your summonsing on her.”  Dr. X-Rays demanded.
“Love to, but well, I’m a prisoner …”  Necrophillia said.
“Consider yourself released.”  Ms. Liberty stated.
“Oh and there’s a little matter of documents, forms, prison records and other evidence, so-called.”  Necrophillia continued.
“Expunged, as promised.”  Ms. Liberty snapped.
“And the duplicates, copies and backups?”  Necrophillia asked.
“You don’t miss a trick.”  Ms. Liberty said.
“I learned from the best.”  Necrophillia smirked.

“Ok, all the documents, and even the back-ups and the backup back-ups will be destroyed.”  Ms. Liberty promised.
“Dr. X-Rays, you are my witness.”  Necrophillia said.
“Yes, why are you so paranoided.”  Dr. X-Rays asked.
“Doctor, you will have to forgive her, you see, she had some dealings with a less than honorable administration.”  Ms. Liberty admitted.
“Oh right, you came from Praetoria.”  Dr. X-Rays said.
“She means Hero Corps.”  Necrophillia replied.
“What?”  Dr. X-Rays asked in shock.

“Yes, sometimes we color outside the lines, in the name of justice.”  Ms. Liberty admitted.
“Ha!”  Necrophillia laughed.
“I said it was in the name of justice, deary, do you want me to prove it.”  Ms. Liberty threatened.
“Ok, ok, I give.”  Necrophillia backed down.
“Oh, of course, dealing with the criminal element rounds off some corners.”  Dr. X-Rays nodded.
“Necrophillia!”  Ms. Liberty threatened again.
“I didn’t say anything.”  Necrophillia said.

“If you two are finished, Necrophillia, we need you to re-animate Kolissa.”  Dr. X-Rays stated.
“Ok, it doesn’t work like that, but I will give it my best shot.”  Necrophillia said.
Necrophillia than started mumbling ancient chants and raising her hands to the sky her chanting got louder and louder.  Her eyes turned blood red, a pink mist surrounded her.  Suddenly a hole opened up in the floor.  A stream of darkness poured out of the hole like a fountain.
“And she was afraid of you, Ms. Liberty.”  Dr. X-Rays said to Ms. Liberty.
“Hush!”  Ms. Liberty replied.
Necrophillia paid no attention to the doctor or Ms. Liberty, but continued her chanting, now at a fever pitch.  Dark shapes and forms floated out of the hole in the floor, the whole room shook.  A loud rumbling was heard.  A strange voice cried out, “Zandar!”

And in an instance, all was quiet again.  The hole vanished, and all order was restored.
“Well that didn’t work.”  Necrophillia said puzzled.
“Necrophillia, you tried your best.  I guess she’s gone.”  Dr. X-Rays said.
“Necrophillia, quit goofing around.  You did that Zandar trick for the Halloween party.”  Ms. Liberty scolded.
“Oh yeah, I forgot that you were there, Ms. Liberty.”  Necrophillia admitted.
“All that terrifying creepy stuff that nearly made me have a heart attack, was just a trick?”  Dr. X-Rays shouted.
“Yeah, I use it when somebody is annoying me.”  Necrophillia admitted.
“Com’on, help Kolissa for real this time.”  Ms. Liberty ordered.
“My power is over the lost dead.  They have no choice, but to obey my every command.  Kolissa is in a completely different situation.”  Necrophillia explained.
“I knew it; there is nothing that can be done.”  Dr. X-Rays admitted.
“You are still free to go, Necrophillia.  With Kolissa gone, Fred has no cause.”  Ms. Liberty said.

“Thank you, Ms. Liberty.”  Necrophillia walked towards the door and stopped.
“There is one thing I could try, Ms. Liberty.  Kolissa was a very good teammate.  I have to try one last thing.”  Necrophillia said turning back towards the bed.
“By all means.”  Dr. X-Rays motioned for her to proceed.

Bending over Kolissa’s cold body Necrophillia began.
“Kolissa.  Kolissa, you know who this is.  Kolissa, this is Necrophillia.  Remember, you kidnapped me once.  You made me drink tea with knock-out drops in it.  You tricked me.  You caught me helpless.  This is Necrophillia, the creepy one, remember.  If you are dead, I have power over you.  You will be my slave.  Do you hear me?  I will get even.”  Necrophillia said in a vindictive voice.
“No!”  Kolissa shouted sitting up.
They all laughed.

“It is so good to see you up and around, Kolissa.”  Ms. Liberty intoned.
“Thank you, Ms. Liberty.  Everyone here has been so nice.”  Kolissa responded.
“I heard that Necrophillia stopped by.”
“That Tabby!  I never want to see her again!”  Kolissa shouted.
“She said something about going to prison for me, and now she owns my apartment.”
“It’s true.  We gave her all your stuff.”
“What?  Why?”  Kolissa asked.
“Well, deary, you did make poor Fred burn his own hand.  Hero Corps looks down on that type behavior from our supers.”  Ms. Liberty explained.
“Take her away, boys.”  Ms. Liberty said as guards came rushing in.  They setup a super-powered field suppression generator, and took her to prison.
“Well, my work here is done.”  Ms. Liberty smiled.

“Flower Night, I’m so glad you could come.”  Necrophillia greeted.
“They gave you Kolissa’s apartment, wow!”  Flower Night replied.
“I need your help, sorting through her things, putting them is storage and what not.”
The two women started unpacking for Kolissa.  Several of her clothes had runs like from a dragon’s claw as he might pack hurried.
“Look at these lacy panties, ruined by scratches.”  Flower Night exclaimed.
“Maybe Kolissa did some hanky-panky.”  Necrophillia giggled and was joined by Flower Night.
“What are we going to do with all her stuff?”
“All the clothes will be packed and put into storage.  Her personal items will be sorted as perishable and non-perishable.  The perishable items throw-out.  Her furniture, appliances and home entertainment are mine.”  Necrophillia instructed.
“What about these secret documents I found in the lining of her garment bag?”  Flower Night asked.
“Give me those; I’ll take care of them.”

Flower Night was about to hand over the secret documents when a thought crossed her mind.
“Maybe I should give them to Ms. Liberty.”
“Oh don’t trouble yourself.”  Necrophillia said thinking that maybe Flower Night wanted all the glory.
“It’s no trouble.”
“I’m going that way.”
“I live in the area.”
“It would be my pleasure to take them.”
“It would be my honor.”
“Kolissa’s stuff belongs to me!”
“I saw them first!”
“You’re being selfish; I’m telling Ms. Liberty!”
“You’re being greedy; I’m telling Ms. Liberty!”
“Listen, girly, those documents are mine!”
“Not while there is still breathe left in me!!”
“That can be arranged!!”
“You wouldn’t dare!!”
Necrophillia then summoned 3 zombies.
“Like I said, here you go, Necrophillia.”  Flower Night said handing the secret documents to Necrophillia.

The two women sat around the kitchen table, drinking tea.  Their hostilities have been long since forgotten.
“This is unbelievable.”  Flower Night said looking at the secret documents discovered in Kolissa’s luggage.
“Not only that, these are dangerous.”
“How so?”  Flower Night asked.
“Whoever is discovered with these documents is a dead man.”  Necrophillia stated.

“A dead man?”
“A dead man…or woman.  We must be careful how we get these to Ms. Liberty.”
“Can we trust Ms. Liberty?”  Flower Night asked.
“Don’t you?”
“I’m just asking.  Maybe she’s in on it.”
“That’s diabolical and devious; I’m surprised that you thought of it.”  Necrophillia said with a sense of delight that her little naïve friend is growing up.

“Hey, I might have been born at night, but it wasn’t last night.”
“Were you born at night?”  Necrophillia asked.
“No, my mom told me that the stork brought me special delivery.”
“C.O.D., no doubt.”
“You are so not funny.”  Flower Night laughed.
“Ok, ok, I’m sorry.”
“Ok, but what are we going to do about you-know-what?”
“First, make copies.  Second, distribute copies to trusted alies.  Third, give Ms. Liberty a set of copies.  Fourth, hide the originals”  Necrophillia rattled-off the task list.

“Necrophillia, I like do like you.”
“Eeeeww, that is the second time that someone suggested that.  Listen, I don’t swing that way.”  Necrophillia reacted.
“No!  I didn’t mean it that way.  I don’t do that either.  Well, I have tried some things, but …”
“Flower Night?”  Necrophillia interrupted.
“Oh com’on, we all tried a little exploration.”  Flower Night confessed.
“Not since I was about 12 at a slumber party with my cousin Zoe.”
“This is fun, tell me more.”
“Well not much to tell, we both decided that it was kind of like playing with ourselves on another girl.”
“Yeah, that’s kind of the same thing that happened to me.”  Flower Night lied.

“Com’on give.”  Necrophillia demanded.
“I need more details.”
“Nothing came of it.”  Flower Night fired back.
“Ok, ok, me and Fire Fredia had been drinking.  We were joking around and she spilled wine on herself.  We went into my bedroom, and I gave her clean clothes.  While she was changing, things got a little crazy.”

“’Fire Fredia’ the super hero.”  Necrophillia puzzled.
“Yes, it happened a couple years ago.”
“Wait a minute, I saw you with her just a few weeks ago.”
“Yes, we are still best friends.”  Flower Night asserted.
“Do you still…you know?”
“No!  It was just that one time.”
“What you do in your spare time is no concern of mine.”  Necrophillia stated.

“Necrophillia, I’m not gay.”
“I believe you.”  Necrophillia replied.
“Just don’t get behind me.”  Necrophillia joked.
They both laughed.

Super Fire Dragon could see the Tokyo airport.  He figured that he should probably enter Japan through the airport to keep things legal like.  He decided to play a little joke.

"Tokyo control this is SFD-zero-one-niner heavy requesting approach with information Bravo, over."  SFD said over his communicator wrist watch.

"SFD-zero-one-niner, we don't have your transponder and your information is out-of-date, over."  Tower replied.

"Tokyo control this is SFD-zero-one-niner heavy yeah, my transponder is, is, is broken, yeah that's it, my transponder is broken, over."

"SFD-zero-one-niner, we don't have you on radar, say position, over."

"Tokyo control this is SFD-zero-one-niner heavy I'm approximately 2 miles west of the airport, over."

"SFD-zero-one-niner, 2 miles?  say your air speed and altimeter, over."

"Tokyo control this is SFD-zero-one-niner heavy I'm flying about 50 meters at 10 knots, over."

"SFD-zero-one-niner, it is a federal offense to play with traffic control, get off this frequency, over."

"Tokyo control this is SFD-zero-one-niner ok, ok, I just need permission to land, this is Super Fire Dragon on wing-power flying from Seoul, over."

"SFD-zero-one-niner, did you say, 'Super Fire Dragon', over."

"Tokyo control this is SFD-zero-one-niner yes, this is Super Fire Dragon requesting permission to at the airport, I need to go through customs and what not, you know, get a flight back to the states, over."

"Super Fire Dragon, you are my favorite superhero of all time', over."

"Gee thanks, but I've been flying for days and I really need to rest."

"Super Fire Dragon, I have all your comic books!"  a voice from the tower said.

"Super Fire Dragon, is it true that you once defeated Lord Recluse?"

"Super Fire Dragon, can you give me a souvenir and autograph it, nothing too personal."

"Hold it!  My wings are tired; I have to use the little dragon's room; I could use a nice hot shower, and I'm starving so if we could get on with my landing, I would very much like that."

"Super Fire Dragon, you are clear to approach from the west and land on runway 08, there is a slight tail wind at 3 knots,  enter airport terminal at gate A15 and dodge the other aircraft and vehicles, over."

"Roger, 10-4, over and out."

After touching down, SFD looked over his shoulder and ducked as a big old air liner landed inches from him.  He hurried to gate A15 and entered the terminal.  He was greeted by 6 armed guards and a man in a sky-blue blazer with an airport logo patch over the left breast pocket.

"Greetings Super Fire Dragon.  Please come with us."  The man in the blazer said in broken English.
"Hiya fellas."  SFD greeted the armed security force.  They didn't respond.
"Super Fire Dragon, please come quietly, we have questions."
"Look, there was a fishing boat right close to where I dropped him, and I wasn't more than 6 meters off the water."
"Yes, of course, this way."

Super Fire Dragon followed the man in the blazer and the security force followed him.  They arrived at a small office with another man wearing the same kind of blazer as the first was seated.  The 2 men exchanged words in Japanese and the first man left with half the security guards.
"Super Fire Dragon, have a seat.  We thank you for your cooperation."
"Look, the Security Chief was asking for it."

"I do not know anything about a Security Chief.  We are concerned about how you arrived at the airport."
"Oh that, I wouldn't worry about that."
"The air traffic control system is over-taxed.  We really can not waste time and resources on pranks."
"I see, have you thought about tax-cuts?"

"Tax-cuts?  No, the system is over-worked, did I use the wrong word I do not use English every day. "
"Right, I understand what the problem is.  Yes, the prank about pretending to be an airplane might not have been my best work."  SFD said realizing that he was dealing with a humor-less bureaucrat.
"We are going to fine you 10,000i for violating air traffic control protocols."
"Ten thousand influence!"
"And if it happens again, you might go to prison."
Super Fire Dragon reached into his back pocket and pulled out his wallet.

"Ten thousand influence, right?"
"Yes."  The man said seriously.
"Great, just great."  SFD said as he counted out ten thousand influence from his wallet.  He made a point of showing that there was a lot more in there.
"Here you go, and an extra hundred for being so understanding.  Can I go now, my bladder is about to burst."
"Yes, you may go.  Thank you very much."
SFD stormed out and ran down the hallway.
"I know a saw a dragons' room around here somewhere."  SFD was over-heard.
They all laughed.

"No, I'm not Super Fire Dragon.  People say I look like him, I don't see it personally."  Super Fire Dragon continued to lie to avoid getting caught in a crowd of fans or by the police.  Ever since he left Seoul, he has been worried about M.I. 6, Interpol or the C.I.A. arresting him for the murder of the Security Chief.  He decided to check-in to a hotel under an assumed name.

"Yes, Peter Parker, your room is ready, number 418."  The Desk Clerk said.
"Thank you."  SFD replied and went to the elevators.
"Was that Super Fire Dragon?"  Another Desk Clerk asked.
"No, that was Peter Parker."
"On, Spider Man's alto ego." The Second Clerk remarked.
"Good disguise."  The First Clerk commented.

Super Fire Dragon got prepared to meet with Ms. Liberty.  He knew that he might get thrown in prison, but his friend Ms. Liberty should be able to help.  Maybe he could use those secret documents as a bargaining chip.  The little dragon's mind raced through all the possibilities.  He had to go face Ms. Liberty.

A little while later:

"Super Fire Dragon!"  Fred said.
"Hi ya, Fred, how's your hand?"  SFD asked.
"All healed-up, and feeling much better now that Kolissa is in prison."  Fred replied with a smile.
The little dragon's face went white.  How could they have locked away a dead woman.  Ms. Liberty had better have a good explanation.

"I leave the country for a while, and all heck breaks loose."  SFD said bursting into Ms. LIberty's office.
"Dragon, I'm glad to see you.  Cheddar or Swiss?"  Ms. Liberty asked.
"Cheddar."  SFD replied, despite his angry, he couldn't turn down cheese.
"In the small fridge over there, top-shelf on the right."

"Three things, first, I didn't kill him, the fishing boat was right there.  Second, I demand that you release Necrophillia immediately.  Third, where did you bury Kolissa?"  SFD rattled off as he retrieved the cheese.
"First, Necrophillia is free and her record expunged.  Even the back-up copies have been destroyed.  We didn't bury Kolissa, she is in prison.  And what guy are you talking about?"  Ms. Liberty answered.

"Damn it woman, don't you have any respect for the dead?"  SFD shouted starting to cry.
"Dragon, she's not dead."
"She's not?  But I saw her ..."
"Dr. X-Rays healed her wounds, and Necrophillia brought her back from limbo between life and death."  Ms. Liberty explained.

"Oh, that is good news, I thought that you, oh man, that you would, I can't believe it, that that you would, oh I'm about to lose my cheese, lock-up a dead super."  SFD managed to say while laughing and eating cheese.

"Dragon, even Hero Corps wouldn't lock away a dead super."  Ms. Liberty reassured.
"Wait, so she is in prison, now?"  SFD asked.
"For a little while longer, she needs to learn that supers can't just do anything they want."  Ms. Liberty said.  SFD swallowed hard.  His mind snapped back to the Security Chief.

"By the way,"  Ms. Liberty began, "The Security Chief sent me this note.  It says that I'm to tell you better luck next time and to stay out of his country."
"When did he send that message?"

"Why do you want to know?"
"Well, I dropped him...into the sea...during his flying lesson...after flying through the window in his office."
"I see, Dragon, you know the rules, civians are supposed to be protected."  Ms. Liberty replied.
"Ms. Liberty, he had Kolissa machine gunned, it was horrible.  I was sure that she was dead."

"Well, Seoul is like a thousand miles out of my jurisdiction so ..."
"So, I can do whatever I want outside of your jurisdiction, woohoo!"  SFD exclaimed.
"That is not what I said, but pretty much yes, unless we extradite you."
They all laughed.

"Necrophillia, what a pleasant surprise!"  Super Fire Dragon intoned as Necrophillia walked into Ms. Liberty's office.
"Dragon, you made it back."  Necrophillia exclaimed throwing her arms around the little dragon.
"Hey, keep it above the belt-line, we aren't THAT good of friends."  SFD smarted-off.
"Oh, dragon."

"I thought you were sick of this place and everything to do with it, let me see, yes you said, and I quote, 'I never want to set foot in this <expletive> building with you <expletive> people and your <expletive> hero corps.  What a <expletive>!'  And now you are back."  Ms. Liberty explained.
"That was so yesterday, girlfriend, try to keep up."  Necrophillia enjoined.

"One big happy family."  SFD smiled.
"Necrophillia, I know you.  You're up to something.  What's going on?"  Ms. Liberty interrogated.
"Does there have to be a plot every time I come up here?"  Necrophillia asked.
"Nope."  SFD snapped back.

"Yes!"  Ms. Liberty fired back.
"Ok, ok, I came here to give you this."  Necrophillia said handing Ms. Liberty a copy of the secret documents that Flower Night had found in Kolissa luggage.
"What is this?"  Ms. Liberty started reading.
Falling back in her chair Ms. Liberty asked, "Where did you get this?"

"Copies R Us."  SFD answered.
"Dragon."  Ms. Liberty said sternly.
"It says so on the back, I use them a lot for copying stuff and papers and junk."  SFD helped.
"Why you stupid stinking Praetorian!  How many copies did you make?"  Ms. Liberty was not amused.

"Oh, enough to give a set to every hero I could still find in Paragon City."
"Necrophillia, you must get every copy back and destroy these documents.  And never ever ever so much as even think about them again."  Ms. Liberty ordered.
"Huh uh, girlfriend.  You are going down."

"Are those the documents that we got from the Security Chief, because if not, Ms. Liberty you had better sit down."  SFD said.
"Dragon, I am sitting down."
"Well then stand up, my god woman, do something!"  SFD began playing secret-agent-boss.
"Dragon, this isn't a game, Ms. liberty is going to have to pay for her mistake."  Necrophillia spoke up.

"You think I became the head of the Vindicators, the chairperson of Hero Corps, the director of the Trainers and convinced that oath Statesman that I was his Granddaughter by not having a dozen contingency plans?"  Ms. Liberty rattled off.
"What?"  SFD's jaw dropped.

"Statesman isn't your Grandfather?"  Necrophillia asked nearly stunned silent.
"Of course Statesman was my Grandfather, don't be silly."  Ms. Liberty replied.
"But you said..."
"Without pictures, it didn't happen."  Ms. Liberty said smugly.

They all laughed.

Kolissa decided that she didn't like being locked away in jail.  Sure the food was good, and she had a slight spark of her confusion power left.  She would confuse her fellow inmates just to watch them fight for a few minutes.  The other women would bet on the outcome.  She resented being there in the first place.  She resented having most of her powers damped by a superpower damping field generator.  She resented having to wear orange.

Kolissa sought out and made friends with the right prisoners.  She also made friends with the right guards.  Together, she practically ran the prison.  With the aid of some of her friends, she constructed a superpower damping field generator bypass.  Some of her friends insisted that they switch the thing on and charge the guards.  Kolissa knew better.  The tech of the bypass was unstable at best, and frequently would burn-out.  A burn-out required most of the scarce parts to be replaced.  Also, the bypass was highly focused and localized.  To make matters worst, it simply wasn't portable.  Kolissa knew that the bypass would have to be strategically placed and activated with split second coordination.

"It will never work."
"It has to work, deary."  Kolissa answered.

Kolissa knew that the upcoming holiday, National Break-Out of Prison Day, would be the perfect time to attempt her escape.  Ironically, National Break-Out of Prison Day is a State holiday, and prison guards get the day off.  There would be only a small crew charged with guarding the entire jail complex.  Kolissa decided to risk it.

At the precise moment agree upon by all parties, Kolissa confused a group of inmates and they started fighting.  Another inmate sounded the alarm to call the guards.  Kolissa waited for the guards to come running to break up the fight.  When they reached the door, a different inmate switched on the bypass.  Kolissa fired off confusion on the guard and stole her keys and weapon.  The usual sentries were not posted because of the holiday.  She continued to make her way to freedom.

There was a strange thing started to happen.  Kolissa regained her powers.  "Of course, they only have the field generators in the cell blocks."  She thought to herself.  Kolissa ducked into the prison laundry, and stole a short pink dress, it had that "Come to your doom, boys" look that was so popular these days.  "Yikes, I look like Necrophillia!"  She said to no one.

"Hi, I'm leaving now; my visit is over."  She told the guard seated behind the check-out desk.
"Hold it one minute!"  The guard ordered.
Kolissa froze, will she use the weapon on him, or confuse.
"You need to sign out, it's 13:24."
Kolissa turned around and signed the log.  She then left the building.

"Hey, Ms. Liberty what's up?"  Super Fire Dragon asked as he walked into Ms. Liberty's office.
"You will never guess what just happened."
"Necrophillia, converted to Jehovah's Witness and is handing out literture."  SFD guessed.
"Well, one-fifth right."
"So The Fattinator IS getting a sex-change?"

"Dragon, stop it."
"You wanted me to guess."
"Kolissa broke out of prison."  Ms. Liberty shouted.
"National Break-Out of Prison Day?"
"National Break-Out of Prison Day."

"I always thought that that was a stupid holiday."
"And Necrophillia IS handing out literture, but not Jehovah Witness Watch-Tower stuff, but those secret papers Kolissa found on your last mission."
"That Necrophillia, she is such a riot."
"Those papers implicate me as the principle force in causing the heroes to be removed."

"Well you were, wouldn't you?"  SFD asked.
"Well, yes, but not like that, it's complicated."
"Give me some cheese and a comfortable chair, and tell me the whole story."  SFD replied.
"Dragon, you would be willing to listen to my side of the story?"

"Of course, babe, I trust you."
"Dragon."  Ms. Liberty rolled her eyes at the little dragon.
"What did I say, what did I say?"
They all laughed.

“It was one of the most gut-wrinching decisions I had to make as leader of the Vindicaters.”  Ms. Liberty began.
“Is this going to be a long story?”
“Dragon!  You said that you would listen to my side of the story.”
“Oh right, carry-on, babe.”  Super Fire Dragon replied.

“Stop calling me, ‘Babe’, I’m your boss.  Show me some respect.”
“You’re not the boss of, especially since you sent the heroes away!”
“Dragon, while I am here, I am in charge and you are working for Hero Corps and there fore you are working for me!”

“Ok, ok, don’t get your panties in a bunch.”
Ms. Liberty glared at the little dragon.  If looks could kill, our favorite dragon would be pushing up tulips about now.
“Boss.”  SFD added in a lets-be-friends kind of a voice.

“Dragon, you drive me crazy sometimes.  You are one of my best operatives, but you can be a pain in the …”  Ms. Liberty said.
“Neck”  SFD interrupted.
“Fine, you can be a pain in the neck.  Just sit there and listen to my story.”
“Why should I believe nothing you say, I remember what you did to poor old creepy?”

“Dragon, if you don’t want to hear my side of things, maybe you should just go, but do not come back!”  ms. Liberty said determined.
“Look, babe, I mean boss, I respect you.  I like you.  I like your cheese.  I want to believe you.  I want to hear why from you.  That’s what I need right now.  This isn’t more Hero Corps non-sense.  I want the truth.  I think you owe me that.”

“Dragon, we have been through thick and thin together.  You helped me get through the Arachnos war.  It is true that sometimes Hero Corps cuts corners.  Sometimes Hero Corps ignores the corners all together, but it is for a good cause.  It is for Justice.”  Ms. Liberty explained.

“Ok, those documents and the Necrophillia-Kolissa affair kind of soured my opinion of Hero Corps.  I am here now.  And I am going to listen.”
“With out interruption?”
“Who do you think you’re talking to?  Of course I’m going to interrupt.”
“Whatever, Dragon.”  Ms. Liberty began explaining her role in the disappearance of the heroes from Paragon City.
“And we knew that the Rikti would take the opportunity to invade at that moment.”  Ms. Liberty explained.

“Yes, but how did you know that the Clockwork would side with the Tsoo?”  SFD asked.
“Oh that’s easy.  The Tsoo need those crystals to channel their power.  The Clockwork channel their power through electricity.  It just makes sense.”
“But what about the Crey?”
“We made an educated guess that the Warriors would take care of the Crey.”
“You didn’t think that the Freakshow would have something to say about that?”  SFD asked.
“Of course we figured that the Freakshow would protect the Crey, that is why we brought the Syndicate to Paragon City.”
“Son of a tabby!  That was a reckless move, even for hero Corps.”
“Watch your language.”
“Sorry.”  SFD pleaded with big sad dragon eyes.

“Yes, it had its risks, but with the villain groups defending the city and holding the heroes in reserve, victory was assured.”
“Right, until the time warp created by releasing huge amounts of cosmic energy into the ether caused the heroes to be shut out of the city.”

“But why were some of us spared?”  SFD asked.
“We’re not entirely sure, we think it has to do with the use of the willpower powers that you have.  We think you simply willed certain heroes into existence.”
“Don’t let it go to your head.”  Ms. Liberty warned.

They all laughed.
