Countdown... 1

Post by namey on Sat Oct 06, 2018 11:57 am

Ness'portal opens up in the usual fashion, a crack of thunder signaling to anyone that he has arrived. Through out the centuries, Ness has been dropped off by his PK Vortex in some rather unfortunate spots. This would be one of those times.

Ness shoots out of his PK Vortex straight into a freefall! But he doesn't fall far, as he hits an air cushion that Hollywood uses for long falls that stunt people use to do.

Ness crawls his way out of the air bag, thinking up an excuse to whomever would be waiting for him. He expected some pissed off Hollywood type on the other side of the bag.

Which was exactly what he Didn't get. Instead, he was greeted by Hundreds of people screaming and cheering for him, like he was some kind of celebrity! "Okay, what the actual Hell?" he asks himself as he looks around at the cheering crowd.

Ness hauls himself out and looks around at the screaming fans "Okay, someone tell me what's going on?" he asks.

One of the 'important' people that was standing by some suits comes walking over. He was an older gentleman, with greying hair "Greeting and welcome, Ness! I can't tell you how pleased it makes us that you've arrived in our dimension." he says as he holds out a hand.

Ness looks it over, then cautiously takes the man's hand "You have me at a disadvantage. You know my name, care to return the courtesy?" he asks.

The man nods as he shakes Ness' hand. Photographers were snapping pictures and everything "Of course. My name is Guy Richardson. You can call me Guy. I'm the president of the People's Republic of the Esper Nations." he says "I guess you can call me, the Guy, in charge." he chuckles at his own joke.

Ness had to Physically restrain himself from groaning "Esper Nations? You mean all of the people here are psychics?" he asks.

Guy shakes his head "Not All of them. There are a few normals here as well. We've all been waiting for your arrival." he says as he claps Ness on the back "Come to my main building and I'll explain everything, after you've had a chance to relax for a bit, that is." he says as he waves to the crowd as he escorts Ness to a waiting limo.

Ness could see all types of fans out there. From the ones dressed like him, to the girls flashing him. He Had to wonder what, exactly, was going on. He didn't sense anything from Guy, so he was likely playing it straight for now, but Ness would keep and Eye, on Guy.

Ness and Guy finally get to the local office and they head up to the main conference room. Guy takes a seat as his Very hot secretary serves him some coffee and Ness some chilled water.

Ness couldn't help but take notice of a bar code tattoo on her forearm on the inside of her suit sleeve. It was Also clear she wasn't wearing an undershirt or a bra, from the view she gave Ness when she set his water down.

Guy took this as Ness being interested in the young woman "I see you fancy Stacy, huh? She's not really much for small talk, but she makes a Mean cup of coffee." he chuckles.

She was attractive, that was for sure, however "So, Guy, wanna explain what the Hell?" Ness asks.

Guy nods, suddenly in serious mode "Okay, the first thing you need to know, is that roughly 80% of the world's population are Espers, or Psychics as you call them and allnof us have One ability which ranges from weak to moderately strong..." he starts to explainnl

"Except for the Twins..." he says "They have the ability of extrasensory perception that can span across the dimensional gap or even through time it's self..." he continues "They somehow got a lock onto your unique style of energy and have been reporting on your many adventures from the different places you've visited and, well, you've become something of a big deal to us." he says with a sheepish grin.

"So much so, that we've got your stories published in book, movies, video games. Even action figures and comics." he says with a chuckle "The only Esper with more that one ability and is very powerful, traveling across the multiverse using his skills to fight evil? You can't make that up." he keeps on going.

"So when the Twins said you would be jumping to Our dimension, it was all over the news and well, you seen the results." he finishes.

Ness listened in silence, until Guy was finished "Honestly, I never considered what I do as anything too special. It's just something that needs to be done and I'm the only one that can get it done." he says with a shrug.

Guy shakes his head "But that's simply not true. To us Espers, you're a Very big deal." he says in a serious tone "You're the First Esper who can use more that one ability. Fo us, that's a Very big deal." he gets up "But enough of this boring exposition dump, let's get you a room at our finest hotel so you can freshen up for dinner or rest if you need to." he says as Ness also stands and follows the man out.

The room they put Ness up in was Very fancy and all expenses paid, meaning Ness could get whatever he wanted for free.

However, Ness had simple tastes when on the move. He Did want to dress nicely for dinner, as he had a few serious questions for Guy.

He still needed to find out why he was here, though he had a decent idea. He had seen it more than a few times. The bar codes on people's arms. He had a good idea what was going on and was already formulating a plan.

The phone to his room rings and when Ness answers it, he was informed that President Guy was waiting for him. Not one to waste time, Ness heads on down. Guy was all smiles, his hot secretary was standing Just behind him, her head down as to not make eye contact. Ness had seen this before as well.

"I hope you're hungry, because I'm taking yoy to the best restaurant in town." he says as they head off.

Once in the limo, Ness looks around at the inside. It was like Every other limo he had Ever been in "So Guy, since you know all about me and what I can do, what's your special trick?" he asks, focusing on the man sitting across from him.

Guy shrugs "I'm just a telepath. My psy rating is a 6. Just above the national avarage." he chuckles "There Are stronger telepaths out there than myself..." he studies Ness for a moment "Were you expecting the President of the Esper Nations to be insanely strong?" he chuckles again.

Ness nods "Honestly? Yeah. Most of the people incharge that I've run into have an edge over their peers, which is how they came to power." he explains.

Guy shakes his head "That's not the case here. I came to power by being elected into office by those same peers that are often my betters." he says as they arrive at the restaurant.

As they start in, Stacy hangs back and Ness pauses "Isn't she gonna join us?" he asks. Guy's answer would determine how he handled future situations with this man.

Guy pauses as well "Stacy, why don't join us this time?" he asks and the secretary gets a surprised look on her face, telling Ness that he had rarely, if ever, asked her to join him. But the young woman hurries over.

Once inside and seated, Ness figured it was time to get down to the brass tax of the situation "What's the deal with the bar codes I've spotted on certain people?" he asks. This was another test of Guy's integrity.

Guy sighs, as if knowing this question would come up "It's an unfortunate product of our dimension." he starts "The Twins told me that you would ask this question and that I should be honest and cooperate with whatever you decide to do..." he says in a low tone.

Ness quarks an eyebrow "Else wise?" he asks.

"Else wise, when you found out on your own, and you Would find out, you would use your impressive skills and insane power to 'fix' this situation on your own, and there wouldn't be a damn thing we could do to stop you." he says in the same low tone.

Ness nods "They're correct on all fronts. I like these Twins. I would like to meet them before I leave." he says with a slight smile "So, about those bar codes?" he asks, already knowing what they meant, based on Guy's response.

Guy sighs, knowing that Ness will have a negative reaction to what he tells him "As I said, those are a product of our dimension. Since twenty percent of the population is simply Normies, what we call normal non-Espers, they are... up for grabs... as it were." he mumbles.

Ness eyes him, then looks over to Stacy "So, not so much a slave, but rather, what, a pet?" he asks as he looks back to Guy "No... not a pet... a trophy." he says "Am I right?" he asks.

Guy nods "Pretty much nailed it. Like I said, it's a product of our dimension. A practice we've been doing for, about two, or so, hundred years." he says "In all of Human history, it's always been the strong dominating the weak, so when Espers became the dominating force of the world, that's when we started to treat Normies like property." he explains.

Ness nods slowly "And, are these 'Normies', content with this arrangement? Being treated as something less than a second class citizen?" he asks in a low tone, knowing this might be a sensitive subject.

Guy shakes his head "No. Not completely. There Are factions of Normies who are causing trouble, demanding we change the way we treat them. Talks have been... unsuccessful." he says.

Ness nods again. They were, at least, Trying to reach a consensus "We'll put a pin in this for now and come back to it at a later date. I don't feel this is the right atmosphere in which to be talking about politics at the moment, but rest assured, we Will be talking about this later." he assures.

Guy nods "Understood... so, in the mean time, was there anything you'd like to know about our dimension?" he asks.

Ness thinks for a second, then shskes his head "Not at this time. Everything I want to know about it's history, I'm sure I can read in the library..." he trails off as a couple walks over to his table.

"Excuse our intrusion but, you're Ness, right? The Actual Ness? the guy asks as he holds out a book, one of Ness' adventures "Me and my wife are huge fans, uh, could we get an autograph?" he asks.
