The Love of Sewer Rats (A Hidden Power Competition)

Eva was born and raised in times of struggle, of mutants, tyrants, and love. This is the start of her story.


9. Down the Drain

Once they arrived at the main dam it was chaos. Hundreds of people were trying to rush past all the makeshift houses and abandoned belongings, carrying children and the elderly to safety from the EMPs at the dam, and the prospect of tons of flooding water crushing their homes, and worse. But there weren’t enough Able-bodied to carry all of the children, disabled, wounded and elderly to safety and Eva soon realized, if they didn’t keep this dam shut, most would perish in the flood.

Antaeus spoke first, “ Edan, Vayu, Seth and I will go to the EMP’s and try and fight them off, Diablo has rushed this since our last battle so they won’t be as well trained and two thirds of them have already been cut down by the generals so it should be fine.” He then looked pointedly at Eva. “ Your’s and Elliot’s priority is getting the civilians to safety.”

Eva piped up, “But I can help, I-“

“You don’t have enough training to fight Eva! You only got your powers this morning! No arguments! GO!” And the four soldiers advanced into battle. Seth looked back with a stern look on his face and shook his head. Eva didn’t respond and followed Elliot to help the remaining half of the civilians that were left behind, too weak to follow with their families, trying to get them moving. Eva took one small girl from a woman’s shoulder who was struggling to manage the weight of her two children. She smiled at the woman reassuringly and helped carry the child past the secondary dam to safety. Whilst walking back towards the dam in order to find more of the deserted she spotted Seth struggling to keep his footing in the middle of a one on one battle with what seemed to be a male fire psychic. Seth’s choice of a knight-like sword and shield was not effective against this EMP and when he aimed a strike with the sword at the psychic’s side. He instantly heated up the hilt of the sword with his mind and it flew from Seth’s hand. Seth then used his shield to block a fireball from hitting his face so the EMP kicked it. Seth fell to the floor and the EMP stood over him. Eva gasped and ran towards the fight, she pressed the button on her bracelet and screamed in anger.

“LEAVE. HIM. ALONE!!!” A ball of ice manifested in her hand flew towards Seth’s attacker, freezing him solid.
