“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.
I don't know when City of Heroes will return, or do I?

“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!”

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.
I don't know when City of Heroes will return, or do I?

"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.
