Astro: Boy of the Stars episode 1 pt. 3
The door to my house opened to my mom’s face, which was full of worry.
“Toby!!” she cried, wrapping me in a super-tight hug. I gave a little groan of annoyance, “Where on earth were you?! I was so worried, I—,” she broke off, seeing Inspector Tawashi standing there. Her face got pale. “Toby…” she started, but Tawashi interrupted her.
“Oh, there’s no need to be angry, Mrs. Tenma,” he said hurriedly, “Your son hasn’t done anything wrong.”
“Oh? Then, why…?” My mom trailed off, her expression confused.
“Good to see you home, Master Tenma,” our housebot said to me as I stepped away from the front door.
“Hi, Orrin,” I said. I gave an abrupt yawn, suddenly feeling extremely tired.
“Would Master Toby like something to eat?” Orrin asked.
“No… No, I think I’m just going to g

“…Reports of what seems to be a robot with rockets flying through Metro City…”
I froze, toothbrush in my mouth as I walked from the bathroom to my room, past the stairs where I could hear the news playing in the living room. I strained my ears, and suddenly the news report seemed too loud, making me give off a small yelp of surprise and rub my ears.
“OW.” I said, my mouth full of toothpaste. Whoa, I had super-hearing??
“…Theories of a project that the scientists of the Ministry of Science were testing out is the only explanation at present, though there are no confirmed reports, seeing as the scientists are keeping silent. What do you think, Ben?…”
So they thought I was a robot, huh? Makes sense. I went back to the bathroom and spat the toothpaste out of my mouth.
I’d gotten back home just fine, seeing as my parents, who both worked at the Ministry of Science, were working late

Chapter 5: Chaos
Astro's eyes opened slowly and he groaned. Ugh…what happened? he asked himself. Picking up his head, he noticed that his head was weighed down by something. He brought his hand around to see what it was, and he saw a piece of rubble from a building. Eyes wide, Astro felt like his chest was going to explode. Oh, no… Oh, no…don't tell me…!
Lifting his head further, Astro saw that part of the highway was destroyed, and Astro was laying in the middle of the street below the highway, ground into the pavement, pieces of rubble strung around him.
Look what we did! the voice chuckled happily. Astro could practically hear its smile.

A/N: I'm really not satisfied with this chapter guys. It's just: I'm afraid it's too convenient, or coincidental, or random or... something to that effect. Please tell me what you think!
“Whoa, whoa, WHOA!!” I narrowly dodged a tree, doing a twirl in the air before landing on the ground more-or-less gracefully. At least I’d landed on my feet this time…
It had been four days since I’d gotten these powers. Lately, since I couldn’t sleep anymore at night, I’d been sneaking out and heading to Metro Park, just outside of the city. I’d hoped the undercover of trees would at least keep people from seeing me. Also, I knew it was a good place to practice because there were rumors of wild animals in the forest, like rabid wolves or bears. The
SolaceShe never slept well in the dark,
not without the children of the sun and moon
to guide her weary lids home.
Guided by the aftermath, she was always two steps behind.
What did the world look like to the girl who had been through it all?
Braved the heaviest of storms,
yet skipping over cracks in the pavement.
They said her eyes were the wisps of clouds before the storm.
To him they were reflections of pages overlooked.
She said it was like she lived the life of someone she had never met.
Laid out to dry, yesterdays news.
He knew her as the girl who was built to never collapse.
He wished he was too.
He loved her more than words could say, and yet her pain was such,
that at times, he feared she wouldn’t make it.
But on nights like these, even when it threatened to consume her,
he became convinced that somehow she would.
Southern modernizationBlack comedy market economy, banana peel political humour, cards with the cartels, the solution free room service and credit the union. Bolivar twist, ding dong dollar under control, valley of the coin desert with no value. Gangsta paradise, the victims are the people. Big mac and cold conflict interference a part of it all. In little Mexico you’d need a high horse to jump the great border wall that boasts its peak.
Viracocha melts waters unlike those it rose from, making waves of out of metal oceans to overtake the current south, re-steel, re-take, tech-mechs the entire south into neo-Machu Picchu, cyberpunk music moulding, reshaping old society into an new age, iron dynasty, fresh coat for an old, ancient look. The coattails of Quetzalcoatl if he were a modern man pull together the merge of future and long passed past..techno temples and the like.
