I'm writing this because I'm an outsider... for the different reasons
U.S.T.C.: Ultimate Super Teen Club
By: Ana Matsumi Rui
Prologue: Brief & Short:
"Someday you'll see a person who stands out from the crowd, isolated from the other normal kids, an outsider, an oddball, an outcast, a freak, any of these you can think of. When you look at them, you wished you werea normalperson, but you're not. We have two types of heroes. We have everyday superheroes like a doctor, a nurse, a policeman or woman, and a firefighter, or a soldier who has to be in a place overseas. Then there's the other type: superheroes. The ones that are in our imagination, the ones that we liked as a kid. Some people don't believe in superheroes anymore, because they have other things to do, but as for the oddball, he sees differently... That person was in a freak car accident and nearly died. That personwent into a coma for 4 years. That personalso developed unique powers similar to Superman's powers from the freak accident. That person was once called a freak, an oddball, but was that person alone? No. That person joined with other oddballs who were from another planet, another country who thinks that they have their powers from their dead parents, or survivors from a freak accident. They all put their lives on the line to save their now-called home, and the people who once were afraid of them, are now cheering for them, especially the leader: once a zero, now a hero. That person was me, Dr. Daniel Ambrose Peters a.k.a. Mr. Ultimate. Yes, I was in a freak accident when I was 4. Yes, I was in a coma for 4 years. Yes, I developed superpowers. Yes, I was once an oddball, but I wasn't alone. I came up with the title Ultimate Super Team Champs, because there were a few teens and the rest of them are young adults, but that was in 1980. Now in the present we retired, or some of us died. I couldn't remember all of them, but I remembered one. I married another super named Aya Hiyakawa a.k.a Golden Goddess. As I met her, she didn't speak English. All she spoke was Japanese. As she moved to America, she, too, was an oddball like me. She was pretty outside and in. Long black hair, and beautiful brown eyes underneath those spectacles of hers. We have so much in common, we hang out with each other all day. The day we dated, she spoke little English, and it's getting better everyday. She got her powers from her ancestors. Now, we are happily married and we're a family of four. Father and mother of two: The youngest and only daughternamed Christina. She's only 2 years old. Another was the oldest and only son. We were gonna named it after me, but we decided to named him... Christopher. He was 2 years older than our youngest, but that was just the beginning. 11 years later..."
- Dr. Daniel Peters.
Chapter 1: The Rebirth of the U.S.T.C
"Good morning, son." Aya said to her son, Chris.
"Good morning, Mom." Chris replied back. "I think your English is improving fast."
"Oh, why thank you." said Aya. She kissed him on the forehead.
"Hey, where's Dad?" he asked.
"He's in the shower, you sister is upstairs getting ready for school, I'm making waffels, and I'm assuming that you're ready?"
"Yeah... for my worst nightmare."
"It's Butch Thompson, Mom!" Chris shouted.
"Why him? What did he do to you?"
"He keeps picking on me, calling me names..."
Daniel Peters got out of the shower, got dress and going to eat breakfast with is family. As he got there he overheard the conversation. Chris told his mother about his day in Japanese so she can understand, then Daniel came in.
"Honey?" he asked Aya.
"Which tie do you think is better on me?"
"I think the blue one."
"Thanks, baby." Daniel kissed Aya on the cheek.
"Eww! Gross! Get a room!" laughed Christina, the she turned to Chris.
"Hey, doofus, where's my homework?!"
"On you're desk, little monster!"
"It's not on there!"
"Oh yeah, then what's that?"
Chris pointed at the piece of paper on Christina's hand. It was her homework. She looked at it, and there it is.
"Oh, right, there it is." Christina ran back, but Chris stopped her.
"Hey, what happen with "Magic Words" shorty?"
"Oh, thank you and don't call me shorty."
Christina went back to her room, put her homework in her bag and ran down stairs.
"Don't run, sweetie, you'll get hurt!" Aya warned Christina.
"I won't!" she replied.
"Dad, I think Christina is 13, going on 35." laughed Chris.
"I heard that!" mumbled Christina's voice from the front door.
"Don't worry, about it, she'll be fine. Especially you going to school." said Daniel.
"You heard about my conversation with Mom?"
"Yes, I'm sorry if I waseavesdropping."
"No, It's okay. You wanna know anyways."
"Just have a good time, okay?"
"Okay," Chris then turns to the door."Note to self: last day of my life."
At school, Chris sits in the shade, drawing people and the school. He's a very talented drawer. Then he draws the star quarterback, Butch Thompson as a monster, a girl, then himself as a superhero. A kid with long blonde hair, blue eyes, wearing a red jacket over his black shirt with flames, black pants, and white shoes, peeked behind the spectacled Chris.
"Hey, I like you're stuff!" he said.
"Huh?" Chris stopped drawing and looked behind him. No one. He fixed his glasses and looked to his left and his right. As he got to is front side. The same kid appeared in front of him.
"Hi!" the blonde teen said. Chris gasped and fall backwards, landed on his ass. As he got up he looked at the kid.
"Hi?" he replied. "Who are you?"
"I'm A.J. Rosenbaum, your new friend...or as if you had friends." A.J. lend out his hand.
"Well, I'm Chris Peters-Hiyakawa," he shook A.J.'s hand. "And I don't have any friends."
"Well howdy do! I'm you're first."
"Um? what does "A.J." stand for?"
"Allen Joe, but I perfer A.J. better."
"Ah! A redneck I presume!"
"Well, I sort of have a redneck accent, but I'm cool, so what are ya? Chinese?"
"Japanese, actually half Japanese."
"What's the other half?"
"Speak some Japanese."
"Just one. Pleeeeeeeeeeease?"
"Oh boy, um? "mukashimukashi "
"What the hell does that mean?"
"It means "a long time ago."
"Whoa! Teach me some Japanese!"
"I think I heard the bell ringing. Let's go, I don't want to be late."
Chris and A.J. ran to their homeroom. At Mr. Tannenbaum's homeroom, everyone is doing their classwork. Chris was always has his work done before everyone else. So he started to draw, then he felt someone tapping on his shoulder.
"Hey Chris!" a boy whispered. Chris turned to his left and saw A.J. next to him.
"A.J.?!" Chris shouted. People were shushing at him, and the got back to their assignment.
"What the fu-what the fuck are you doing here?" he whispered back. "Shoudn't you be in your homeroom?"
"What are you talking about? This is my homeroom."
"HAAAH! We're in the..."
"Yup, the same homeroom! Isn't it fun?"
"Yeah, uh... cool, that's cool. I mean like "phew" man, I thought I was gonna be alone."
"Uh Chris? Are you okay?"
"Okay? I'm relieved! I never felt relieved in my life."
At the lab, Daniel is getting ready to work, installing the last watch comm link. Suddenly Dr. Selena Gomez ran to his lab.
"Dr. Peters! Dr. Peters!" she cried catching her breath. "I'm glad I found you!"
"Selena, what's going on what's wrong?" Dan asked.
"It's your friend." she said calmly.
"He's not the same anymore like last time."
"All right. Phrometheus, what about him."
"About that. He has escaped!"
"I think it's time to be Mr.Ultimate again, sir?"
"Oh, Selena, I don't think I can."
"Because I retired, and so did my wife."
"How's she doing."
"She's doing fine."
"Dr. Peters?" called out a man.
"What is it, Earl?" he asked.
"You heard it, too?" Earl asked.
"Oh man. This is bad! Very Bad!"
"In the meantime, I want you and Selena to deliver these five comm links to the mail."
"Because I need them, Dan replied. "The first one is for my son, the second one is for the Rosenbaum family, the third one is for the Tan family in Nepal, the fourth one is for an alien from Lunaria, and the fifth one is for the Takamiya family."
"Okay." said Selena
"Roger that!" shouted Earl.
Selena and Earl put each comm link in each portal: The first one was warped into the school mail; the second one was warped into the Rosenbaum mailbox; the third was warped into Nepal; the fourth one was warped into Lunaria; and the fifth one was warped into the Takamiya mailbox.
"I hope you know what you doing." Selena said to Dan.
In Nepal, a petite princess with verylong black hair, bright harvest gold eyes, pink blushes on her cheeks, a pair of gold earrings and a yellow orange shirt with an orange sadi; she has a bindi on her forehead and she's not wearing shoes, praying to her mother who was killed overseas 2 years ago, and she looked just like her.
"Princess Ona! Princess Ona!" a monk cried.
"Apu? Is there something wrong?" she asked.
"A package for you." he said handing the package to Ona.
"Ooh! I wonder what could it be." she said to herself. Ona carefully tear off the wrapping paper and saw a device and a card that comes with it.
"Huh?" she asked. The card reads "Welcome, friend, you are selected to be in a get together at the Peters-Hiyakawa Enterprises. We are looking forward to you being there."
"Hey, no return name or address..." Ona cried, then turned to Apu. "Apu!"
"Find out where Peters-Hiyakawa Enterprises is."
Apu ran off.
"Hmm Interesting." Ona thought.
In planet Lunaria, a bald kid with a red diamond on his head, wearing an aqua toga with a green shirt and pants, and with aquamarine eyes,is playing a video game: Demon Slayer.
"Beam X190!" shouted his mom "There's something for you!"
"Bring it here, mom!" Beam shouted back "I busy!"
His mother, Reeda, sends the package to his room. Beam paused the game and opens the package. It's the same one that Ona got back in Nepal.
"Huh?" he asked "Never heard of that before. But it can only mean one thing... It's on another planet called Earth."
Back In Japan, but in the deserted place. A young swordsman with black and red hair, all spiked up in the back with a dark red thunder bolt on his right cheek, wearing no shirt, but black pants, and has red eyes, was concentration on finding hiscenter (No, not the center of the room, the center of his body.)
"Riven!" shouted his older brother, Scar.
"What is it, now?!" Riven growled.
"I found something. I think it's for you."
Scar handed Riven the package. He tooked the package and opens it with his katana. He was carefull not to slice up the items inside. He had the same one as Beam and Ona. So he reads the card.
"Peters-Hiyakawa Enterprises? Hmm... Okay I guess I should go."
"Wait!" cried Scar "What about...?"
"Don't worry, Scar." said Riven calmly. "I'm just going on a trip."
Scar watched him go. In Narita High, school was over and everyone gather up their stuff from their locker.
"Chris?" asked A.J. "Hey bro?"
"Huh?" Chris asked.
"Are you o.k.?"
"Then what's wrong, yo?"
"It's Butch Thompson."
"Butch Thompson? The star quarterback? What did he do to you?"
"Oh, I don't know."
Suddenly, Butch and his posey were right behind Chris and A.J.
"Hey Squirt!" Butch said to Chris "Wanna play a game?"
"What kind of game?" asked Chris.
"I would like to introduced to you to a game called Jack in the box !"
Butch grabbed Chris by the collar. A.J. tried to help Chris pull free, but Butch pushed A.J. off of him.
"I'll deal with you later." he said to A.J. as he shoved Chris into his own locker and slamed the door, and locked it shut.
"Or should I say Squirt in the box !" Laughed Butch. The jocks laughed to, but A.J. punched Butch in the face. Butch fell down. Everyone gasped.
"ARRRGH! You little bitch!" Butch yelled.
"Come and get me!" dared A.J. as he mooned at the star quarterback. Butch charged at A.J. like a Spaniard wild bull. Chris looked through the holes of his locker and saw his friend, A.J. fighting with Butch.
"A.J.!" Chris cried to himself. He tries to get out, at first it's no use, but at the second time, he developed superstrength as he pushed the locker door free, and the freed locker door hit Butch on the head. He fell and A.J. ran to Chris, with superspeed.
"Ow!" Butch cried "That hurt!"
"Hey let's get out of here!" one jock cried.
"I'll get you later!" Butch shouted "You ain't seen the last of me!"
The jocks are gone and A.J. helped Chris to his feet. He felt a sudden urge.
"Chris? You been workin' out?" asked A.J.
"What? No." answered Chris. "Why?"
"Don't you feel something weird inside, but you don't know how?"
"Hmm... You can say that." Chris smiled "Allright then let's fix that locker."
The two boys fixed the locker. Chris discovers heat vision while repairing it.
"Whoa!" A.J. cried.
"What now?" Chris complained.
"How come there's red-orange beams coming out of your eyes?"
"Let's go, Curious George." Chris grabbs A.J. as the two headed for the bus.
As Chris arrives at his house, it was empty.
"Hello?" he asked. "Hmm... No one's home."
Then he finds a package on the counter table. Chris ran to the package. He found a note there next to it. It said: "Dear Mr. and Mrs. Peters-Hiyakawa, a package from an unknown source was deliver to our school. We don't know what it is so we send it to the mail and it was brought to your house. Please and thank you."
"Damn!" he cried "Does he know?"
Chris opens the package and finds a comm link and a card. He reads the card, but he knows where it is.
"Oh boy, what is it this time?" he asked to himself.
At the Peters-Hiyakawa Enterprises Chris walked into the building and the same thing happened at his house... nothing!
"Okay..." he said to himself. "This is freaky!"
"Hey, Chris!" A.J. called out to him.
"A.J.?" Chris cried. "What are you doing here?"
"Did you get the message?" he asked.
"What message?" Chris asked "Hey, wait a minute! You have..."
"Sure I do!" A.J. replied. "I have a thing-a-ma-jig, and this card."
"So do I." said Chris. "Okay, now what?"
"You two and three others were chosen." Dan explained.
"Dad?" Chris asked.
"He's your dad?" A.J. asked.
"Way!" Dan answered.
"So who are the other three?" Chris asked.
"They are here." Dan said.
Chris and A.J. were curious and eager to meet the other three teens. Dan called out Ona, Beam and Riven to greet them.
"Guys..." Dan started. "These are the 3 you'll be working with. Beam, Riven, and Ona."
"I knew her." A.J. claimed.
"What?" Chris asked.
"We usedgo to the same Middle school together. She thinks I'm an ass."
"You are an ass, now!"
"This is my son, Chris." said Dan. "And this is A.J."
"I knew him." said Ona "I can't believe we're in the same middle school last year, and now we're in the same team."
"Long time no see, princess." said A.J. putting his hand on Ona's chin, but she pushed itaway.
"Don't touch me!" Ona snapped.
"Whoa!" said Chris. "No one wanna mess with her!"
"I know," said Dan. "That's why I hired her."
Chris was stoned.
"So what are we doing here, anyway?" asked Riven.
"Yeah!" Beam agreed. "What's going on around here?"
"Should I tell them, son." Dan asked.
"Tell them what?" Chris shouted. "They don't know what's going on. I don't know what's going on. Even A.J. don't know what's going on."
"What?" asked A.J.
Chris sighs. "Nevermind."
"Look I know you are new to this, but listen up, something evil has been unleashed. He's about to take over the world, so I need you to put back in his cage where he belongs."
"Who's he?" Riven asked.
"Phrometheus." said Dan "He has escaped."
The five teens were stunned and confused at the same time.
To be continued.
