The Custodians of Earth were huddled on one side of the Los Francisco, while the Gathering of Forces had the docks. Glory, as the hometown hero, stood to address her fellow heroes, while Louisette spoke to her fellow Gatherers.
Louisette’s speech was long, poetic. She, along with all those she spoke to, were better than the scum that lived in the city. Be it from birth, or from the Empowering, or from years of training, they were better, so why shouldn’t they have everything?
Glory’s was just four words.
“We Must Not Fail!”
Many heroes fell.
But they didn’t fail.
