Back to the daily grind. Wake up early, get the mints, do the ever-increasing in difficulty of target practice, and eat a good breakfast. Then eat the mints, do target practice, meal. Mints, target practice, meal. We kind of got the pattern by now.
Today was different. The guards came in ten. They released us all into a target practice, but this time we had to work together to eliminate targets.
I activate my firepowers to knock out and burn targets. Surprisingly, the moving targets were all with holes in them. I look around. My friends fired the machine guns perfectly. Like their hand-eye coordination jump-started to the next level.
Targets kept appearing. This time, there was one big target. I throw a big fireball. The target burns, but fizzes out. Around me, rapid fire gunshots. They all barely put a dent in the target.
“We got to combine our powers. Use your bullets to spiral around the fireball I fire.This way, it melts and makes a bigger dent.”
I count down. “Three, two, one, FIRE!”
I throw my fireball pretty quickly. The bullets made three different spirals and they all expanded due to the warmth around the bullets. My fireball lands. The target burns. The bullets keep it hot. It starts to dent more.
“Keep firing!” I scream.
I rapidly keep firing my fireballs. They keep using the spiral trick until, finally, the target disintegrates.
“Finally,” I sigh.
I hear the groans and sighs of my other friends to the left and right of me. Let us have our meal now. The room’s lights start to turn blue, and my powers disappear.
“We will bring you your group lunch very soon,” the guard said. “Please walk into the cafeteria outside.
We walked outside and followed the guards. The walkway’s ceiling was now rock. I see the light coming out through the exit. I look to my left. There it was, the Golden Gate Bridge. I knew where we were now.
It was San Francisco, CA.
