The Vanisher

Back a few years ago, one of the world's most mysterious crimes ever committed left everyone stooped.
To this day, the goal and the criminal are still a mystery.
But, what people don't know what that the crime wasn't meant to be a crime in the first place.
The Vanisher, after many years, has returned with a mission, one that could change the world forever.

12. Return

I walk into school the next day, which is a buzz.

About what, I honestly have no clue.

"I knew this would happen, I just knew it!" A girl says.

"This is insane!" A boy calls out to his friends, waving his phone.

"It's the biggest news since Jessica got pregnant!" Another girl says.

Okay, what is it?

I see Tim and run up to him.

"Hey, Tim, what's going on?" I ask.  He waves his friends away and turns to me.

"You haven't heard?  It's all over the news!" He pulls out his phone, which has a video pulled up.  "It's returned."

Oh.

No.

A pair of white eyes stare back at me.

'The Vanisher Returns' is the title.

Oh. CRAP.

"Oh know, crazy right?  I can't believe it was spotted.  It's been nearly two years.  Maybe it's come back to finish the job."

"That's crazy.  They probably just saw an owl or something from that rooftop."

Tim stops for a second and looks at me.

"I thought you didn't know anything about this.  How did you know they spotted it on a rooftop?"

Damn it, Tim! 

"Well, they were last spotted on a roof, right?  So I guess I just made the, uh, connection there." I try to cover up.

He gives me a look then shrugs it off.

Thank goodness.

I swear, this kid could be an awesome detective one day.

It's a video from a phone and it shows 'The Vanisher' hopping from rooftop to rooftop, and then disappear.

It's only like 13 seconds long, but it's enough.

I've been blown.

Man, am I going to hear it from Director Jones.

 

"What were you thinking?  What part of lying-low don't you understand?  This could blow this entire operation!  Do you understand how serious this is?" Director Jones yells at me.

"I'm sorry, okay, I was doing my nightly runs and I guess someone saw me-"

"Someone?  Ragan, half the world has seen this!  Millions of people!"

"Look, I'm sorry, okay?  What else do you want me to say?"

He just looks at me.

"Your carelessness might cost us Campbell, the man who murdered everyone in your family, and turned you into the creature you are today!  WE know you want him just as much as we do.  And now, thanks to you, he probably knows we're onto him.  You have to extra careful from now on, alright."

"I will, I will." I reply.  I start to walk away.

"Agent Hart," Director Jones says to me, and I turn to face him, "just, be careful.  Campbell knows you're out there.  He'll come for you."

"I know, and, honestly, I hope he does."

With that, I leave the base and head home, the only thing on my mind is Campbell, and how I will make him pay.
