“Time to rock and roll,” Cooper hollers. He sprints straight at the demons. One of them meets him head on. Cooper lowers his shoulder and plows into it, pinning it against the brick wall. He grabs its arm and, using his super strength, throws it across the alley and into the opposite wall.
Caitlyn and I stand back, unsure how to help our friends. At times like this, I wish my powers showed up more aggressively.
Mike takes to the air, and starts shooting air blasts at the demons from high above. He lands in a circle of five demons and starts shooting at them in turn. Jimmy keeps walking forward until he’s only a few yards away from his targets and Shelly uses her telekinesis to throw another demon into a garbage bin. The fight looks like it’s going really well… until I hear Caitlyn scream beside me.
I spin toward her and see three demons grabbing at her. Why do they keep going after her so insistently? Is there something about Caitlyn? I don’t know… but what I do know is she needs help. I quickly glance at the others. They are all engaged. I spot Mike and he looks fit to be tied. The demons surrounding him have converged and he can’t get away. Both Cooper and Jimmy are taking on two demons apiece, and Shelly literally has her hands full. Somehow I have to help Caitlyn.
I really don’t know what I’m going to do, but I have to do something. I grab the closest demon by the sleeve. This pulls its attention to me and it swings a fast moving backhand slap in my direction. The smack hits me right across the mouth and I fall to the ground. It doesn’t hurt my physically too much, it was more of a blow to my pride. The demon kicks and hits me in the side, then turns back to Caitlyn. Apparently I’m not important enough or dangerous enough to fight properly.
I don’t know why a demon thinking I’m unimportant makes me mad, but it does. I grind my teeth and my blood starts to boil. I clench my fists and my eyes start to sting. It’s the sting of angry tears… but more. The stinging and burning becomes very intense. I rub them, but that does no good. It’s far more powerful than just watery eyes. I start to worry about permanent damage to them, when suddenly something bursts from my eyes. It flies directly into the back of the demon that kicked me. The beam bursting from my eyes knocks the demon to the ground. A small string of smoke circles up from the beam’s place of impact. I stare at the demon again with as much intensity as I can muster. Another beam strikes the demon and it writhes in pain, screaming and howling as smoke billows from its flesh. After a few more repeated blasts and the demon explodes, leaving just a scorch mark on the ground.
Heat vision. I have heat vision, I cheer in my head.
