Episode 4: New Doors
The quartet was laughing, drinking coffee and talking loudly as they walked down the street back to the Tower. It had been two weeks since the Bleached Auto incident and the city was back to its normal bustling self. Pietro and Gene had introduced Fay and Queenie to the Avengers and now they were all on their way to becoming Agents.
Gene wrapped an arm around Queenie to which she blushed. Fay laughed and flitted above the ground, causing sparkling dust to cover everyone. Pietro laughed and brushed the dust out of his hair, only to succeed in getting more in. “Sorry Pietro, the more you rub the more you rub it in.” Gene and Queenie oohed as Pietro frowned. He grabbed Fay by her waist and brought her down.
“Race you guys there!” He speed off with Fay in his arms, leaving Gene and Queenie to sigh. “Go after them?”
“Sure, why not?” Gene replied and off they went. People moved out of the way for a blue blur, a bounding jackal and snowboarder on the sidewalk. They shook their heads, they were used to the four teens doing their antics on a mid-winters day.
Gene and Queenie finally reached the doors of the Tower to meet Pietro and Fay waiting. “What took you so-ow!” Pietro rubbed the back of his head which had been slapped by the floating fairy next to him. “Now don’t go rubbing it in. That’s rude and un-sportsmanlike.” However, she winked and him and flew over to hug her best friend.
Gene and Pietro shook their heads as Queenie and Fay embraced. “We will go ahead inside. We have to help with dinner.” They nodded and walked through the doors to be greeted by JARVIS.
Fay giggled and Queenie smirked. “Shall we head to the field?” The half-jackal asked her flying friend. fay laughed, brown orbs twinkling. “Of course! Let’s go!” And with that off they went, the wind to their backs and faces to the South. Soon, they had passed the outskirts of the city and were bounding into the flower field where they had started their adventures.
Breathing heavily, the two flopped down on the wet grass looking up at the azure sky. Queenie pulled out a paddle and started to hit the ball on the wooden spoon the make up for the silence. Fay grinned and sat up, pulling out a small wooden pipe. She brought it up to her lips and was about to blow when light surrounded them both. Fay jumped up followed by Queenie, ears and tail on end.
A symbol had appeared on the ground and light was breaking from it. “Hold on! It might be-“ A loud whooshing sound cut off Fay’s voice, but not her outreached hand. Queenie jumped and caught as somehow the ground opened up and they fell in. Fay struggled to beat her wings, but it was if they had weights on them. Queenie griped her friend as they fell…..down……down…. into another unknown.
They fell through the darkness until light surrounded them once more and they hit the ground, hard. Fay groaned and rubbed her head only to discover a knob there. “Say, Queenie?” She trend to glance at her friend only to see Queenie looking…different. She now had orange ears and tail, longer claws and fangs more prominent. Her clothes consisted of a black top iwht an orange paws and the word “Cori” in bold orange lettering. Her hands had leather gloves and she wore long black pants with brown ad orange thigh boots.
Queenie blinked at her outfit, but when she saw her friend she jumped. “uhhhh immmmm Fay. You might want to look at yourself.” Fay frowned. “Why……” she looked down at a puddle nearby and gasped at her reflection……
Two long horns protruded her fair dark locks, which was now black. The horns were much like Maleficent’s. her brown orbs now flashed red and she too had fangs. A green scale-like amour plate covered her upper body. It cover the top part of her arms and underneath, her skin now had scales of a purple color. She wore dark blue, scaly pants and had no shoes, instead scaly feet took place of the chain sandals she once wore. She spread her wings to find them large black wings of a dragon along with a long, slim tail.
They stared at each in pure shock. “We’re monsters!”
