“You’ve got this,” David said as he knelt next to Lance.
“I don’t know,” Lance muttered.
“Just let it happen,” David said as he stood and stepped back.
Lance looked forward from his runner’s stance with determination.
“Go,” David ordered.
Lance took off with a bolt nearly knocking David to the ground from the wind. David cheered which filled Lance with joy. Lance darted around the track they had set up underneath his great mansion. Then he stumbled some but did not lose any speed. Smoke began to trail behind him.
“Ut oh,” David muttered.
Lance’s arms began to smolder and with one last stumble he was sent rolling down the track. Streams of fire flew from him. Lance finally came to a stop with a trail of fire behind him. Lance began to laugh.
“Shit,” David said fumbling to find a pill bottle.
Lance’s laugh became more maniacal as David ran over to him.
“Hurry take this,” David said trying to hand Lance the pill.
“Oh, I think I’m just fine,” Lance snarled.
“I don’t think so,” David said trying harder with the pill, “now hurry and take this.”
“I said I’m fine!” Lance shouted sending David flying with a fire ball, “I don’t know why you insist on keeping this power caged.”
Lance let out a maniacal laugh before being knocked backward to the ground by a surge of electricity.
“You need to take your medicine Lance,” David growled as he stood.
“You don’t know what you’re talking about,” Lance said as he stood back up, “I’ve never felt better. Stronger.”
Lance began filling the track tunnel with fire. David bolted around dodging the flames until there was just too much. With a surge, he merged into the lighting above him before the fire shattered the bulbs sending sparking raining down.
“You can’t win with your tricks Zeus,” Hades snarled before unleashing more hellfire.
“Zeus?” Hades heard David question behind him, “I think it’s time for Lance to wake back up.”
“Never!” Hades shouted as he turned but was met with David’s palm on his head.
David sent a surge of electricity through Hades causing him to collapse to the ground.
“Now take your fucking medicine,” David ordered pulling another pill from his pocket.
“Okay,” Lance muttered before taking the pill and swallowing it, “It happened again didn’t it. I’m sorry.”
“It’s fine,” David said helping Lance up, “You’re still learning. You’ll control it.”
The fire suppression system kicked in filling the tunnel.
“Let’s get out of here,” David said walking with Lance, “Thinking Johnathan made dinner yet? I’m starving.”
The two chuckled as the massive blast doors closed behind them.
