jvill 51 Posted July 17, 2021 Author Share Posted July 17, 2021 Although publicly Vought International projected a sense of calm and control, inside The Seven Tower the sense of fear and paranoia reverberated through the walls. Translucent was dead, blown to bits by an ass bomb. Ok fine, probably just a perverted fetish gone horribly wrong. They'd find the culprit and deal with him, but that didn't mean someone was actually targeting the world's most powerful group of superheroes. But now, after Black Noir was found maimed in the bowels of the stadium... someone was hunting superheroes. Homelander gathered the rest of The Seven and Vought VP Madelyn Stillwell to go over the surveillance tapes they recovered from stadium security. It was hard to make out faces between the smoke and flashes going off but -- "Freeze it," Homelander ordered. "There. Zoom in". Kimiko's face flashed on the screen as she jumped down from the ceiling vent. Homelander ordered everyone from the room except for A-Train and Stillwell. "We know her, don't we A-Train?" A-Train's heart sank. "Yeah. That's the girl we smuggled in from the Philippines to test the Compound V on." "And how, pray tell, did she escape?" "I don't know.. but I'm going to find out." "You figure out how she escaped," Stillwell said to A-Train, "and I'll have our guys deal our little escaped lab rat here." ********** The Boys woke the next day ready to get back to work. They'd killed two members of The Seven and, even more importantly, gotten their hands on a vial of Compound V. Things were looking up. Frenchie went to gather the crew, when... The doors burst open with a bang. Gas flooded the room. He darted up the nearest staircase and headed for the escape van parked outside the back of the building. Butcher, MM, and Hughie followed close behind. But where was Kimiko? At last they saw her running through the door. Frenchie threw open the back door of the van and Kimiko leaped... A loud crack came from a rooftop across the street. The bullet hit her dead between the eyes in mid jump. She dropped to the ground in a heap. "NOOOOO" Frenchie shouted as Butcher hit the gas and the van sped away. DRUMS, aka Kimiko, TOWN SUPE (takes 1 extra vote to lynch) has been killed 2 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
