    Just a League IC

    Part 1: The New Kid in Town

    This flight is taking forever. I couldn’t comprehend why I took this job in the first place. I’m to be a teacher for the biology sector of a high school, the same job I had, only with less pay. Sighing at the thought of myself making such a bad decision I decide to try and look at the brighter side of it. I’m going to the barge, or as it’s more commonly named, Freedom City. I’ve always wanted to be on it since they began construction 12 years ago, only about 3 months after the accident. As to be expected they barred all nuclear based experiments in light of the collapse they had caused back then. It’s hard to think of it now, how everything I grew up around was doused with radiation overflowing from the UCLA campus. Almost half the valley gone from that stupid experiment, flooded with radioactive particles that crippled the agricultural supremacy that America was just rebuilding.

    Since then the world has changed exponentially. Russia has become a majour supplier of oil and steel with their new ability to tap into the Siberian surplus of materials. China and India have been at war for almost 3 years with constant threats of nuclear annihilation. The Koreas are actually at war with the South being supplied and reinforced by the new Japanese military force. Europe is in a cold war with the middle east and turkey and all of these cultures have found a new home inside the skyscrapers of the floating metropolis that I am currently in transit to.

    I lean back in my chair and let out a sigh as I can’t even see the ocean I’m flying over, cloud cover blocking my vision. The city can’t be too far off now though. I’ve been flying for some 8 hours and the place is relatively close to Hawaii. I look out the window again trying to ignore the crying child a few rows back and I notice some small specs on the distance. I pull my small spy glass from my bag and look at the approaching objects. Freedom city defense jets, that means we are at least within 40 miles of the city. Within a few minutes they are flying next to the plane as an escort to the landing strip. I look down at the clouds and notice them growing higher to meet us. We were descending and soon we breached the bottom of the clouds. The pilot’s voice scratched onto the intercom.

    “Welcome to Freedom City everyone.”

    “Welcome to Freedom City everyone.”

    The voice from the intercom coupled with the roar of some jets shook me from my sleep.
    “About time.”
    I frown a bit and lean forward in my chair and let the once warm towel fall from my face to my lap as I let out a large yawn. I rub my eyes and pop my joints and neck before letting out a very relieved sigh.
    “Guess I should get going.”
    I pull the headphones I had been using for my personal moving out of my ears and drain the last bit of wine from my glass just as a stewardess walks up.
    “Excuse me sir, please buckle up we are landing soon.” She says with a smile.
    “Yea I guessed as much.” I say with a groan as I stand and stretch my back. “Miss I would like to thank you for the flight, you made it very enjoyable but alas I must go.” I give one last glance at my first class booth and begin to walk to the front of the plane; the stewardess throwing complaints at my back. It takes less than a minute before I reach the cockpit having now picked up two more stewardess for my rambling entourage behind me.
    “Hello.” I say to the pilots before I examine the cockpit a bit.
    “Hey, you can’t be up here!” The main pilot yells at me.
    “I’ll only be a second.” I respond and reach into the mans’ pocket and pull out a key ring. I turn around and begin to walk, twisting a single key off the ring and tossing the rest over my shoulder.
    I hear a “Stop!” Followed by a small chorus of screams and a thud. Taking a glance over my shoulder before I leave the room to see the three stewardesses under the pilot who looks to have tripped on the keys.
    “You should be in your seats, we’re landing soon ya know.” I leave with a snicker and proceed through the isles to the back of the plane ignoring the stares of the passengers as I walk. Eventually I get to the back and find a hatch with a lock on it. I quickly put my new key to use and clime down into a dim room full of luggage. I look around for a bit trying to decide what bag I should search before shrugging and grabbing a random large black suitcase with a lock. I whistle as I put random numbers into the lock and open the suit case to find a jumpsuit, goggles, parachute, and other skydiving devices. I put on the goggles and strap on the first parachute I have ever touched humming all the while.


    “Why won’t this stupid radio… hurry up with that radio!” The voices of the pilots could be heard through the intercom.

    “I’m trying! It just stopped working all of a sudden.”
    “What do you mean it stopped working you incompetent Jackass?!?”
    “Hey fuck you! I’m not the one that tripped over his feet and knocked out the stewardess!”
    “...At least I can tell the difference between the intercom and the radio button.”
    “… Son of a” *click*
    I let out a chuckle and turn to the man by the emergency exit.
    “If I were you I’d move.”
    He glances at my goggles and pack before quickly scrambling away from the door. I step up to it and turn around to find all eyes in the plane on me.

    “Welcome to Freedom City everyone!”


    The door makes a loud “clink” as I pull the red bar and take one last look at the passengers.
    “Enjoy your stay.”
    I give a strong push on the door and am sucked out of the plane and into free fall. I flip over in mid-air and watch it speed away in between two jets who lucky for me did not notice my departure. I turn back around and let out a yell of joy and excitement that is lost to the fast flowing wind.

    I heard a loud whooshing sound as the cabin to the plane became depressurized. I turned my head toward the back end of the plane to see what the hell had happened. A man with a goofy smile was staring at the crowd. He spoke loudly so everyone could hear him. “Welcome to Freedom City !” he shouted. “Enjoy your Stay!”

    “Bloody fuck!” I yelled. Before I could even think of what to do I was outside the airplane only a few feet behind the man who had jumped out. Slowly my body began to gain momentum as gravity tugged me downward. I didn’t even give it thought that the man who jumped might have a parachute. I felt stupid for even considering to help this man as he dove straight at the city.

    What the hell is wrong with me, I thought to myself as I stretched my hands forward to grab onto the man’s pack. I should have learned to control my powers more by now. He pulled the string of his parachute and I instantly teleported in front of him on reflex. M y back was towards the ground now and I starred up at the man whose parachute did not deploy. He starred back at me with an odd expression I couldn’t place. I opened my arms in order to slow down and get closer to the man. I think he was scared of me since he did the same thing in order to stay away from me.

    Glaring at the man I decided to just get this over with. I teleported next to him and grabbed him by the shirt. Starring at the ground I had chosen our next destination. It was a tall building of at least 40 stories in height with multiple atriums on the mid-levels. Within the blink of an eye we were about 2 inches above the gravel covered roof, sprawled out like we had been in the air. We landed with a dull thud sound and I got up, dusting myself off. I turned to the man.

    “DUDE WHAT THE HE-” The man was already jumping off the edge of the skyscraper, screaming at the top of his lungs in some sort of over enthused manner. I rushed to the edge of the skyscraper and looked down at the parachute that was now gliding through the city. It read, “Thank you”
