OOC/Sign Up Thread They were the kids that everyone laughed at. The kids that nobody wanted anything to do with. The kids that the adults turned a blind eye to. They were the losers. They all go to New Ridge High School, the only high school in the small town of New Ridge, so it's not like they can escape. Some people say that high school is where you have the best times of your life. But to the losers, it's hell. Until one day their tormentors push them to the limit, and in their darkest moment, each kid is met with a strange being made entirely of light. The being calls itself 'Hope' and it offers to help them rise up against their oppressors and take back the town from the bullies that keep it in a poisonous vice. The kids accept and suddenly they each find themselves with a unique power that they then use to defend the weak and become the new 'rulers' of New Ridge Town. - - T h e B e d W e t t e r "Let me go!" Diego screamed, his arms and legs thrashing but he couldn't get away from them. 'Them' being Daniel Stanley, Mark Flynn and Gordon Lesley. They were holding him up against the brick wall behind the school, while Daniel was continuously bucking at him as if he was going to mash his fist right into Diego's face. "Not until you learn to piss on command, Dora!" Daniel sneered and his two idiot henchmen dissolved into laughter. Unfortunately they still held a tight grip on Diego's arms. Diego glowered at his tormentors, but his angry glare was diminished by the tears that were already streaming down his face. The fact that Daniel was picking on him wasn't that bad, or even the fact that he was calling him girl names. It was the fact that Diego couldn't take it. He was such a damn wuss! If he hadn't of wet himself that time, none of this would be happening! He hated this. And himself. "Stop it!" He yelled one more time, before suddenly the edges of his vision began to blur and the mocking voices of the three bullies began to fade into white noise. Suddenly everything was pitch black, save for four figures. Daniel, Mark, Gordon...And himself? Was he having some sort of out of body experience? Was he dying? But how! They may have been restraining him but they hadn't even hurt him yet! What was going on? "Diego." A soft voice called, and Diego whirled around, this way and that looking for the speaker. "Wh-who is that? Where am I? Wh-- "Diego." The voice repeated, and suddenly Diego found himself staring at a being engulfed in white light. "I am Hope. And I am here to help you. Too long has this town been held in the villainous jaws of cowardly rulers. I can help you bring justice and peace to all." The being--Hope--whispered. "What? I don't--" Hope reached out and placed a glowing hand on Diego's shoulder. "Your tormentors," It began, gesturing at the three figures below. "I can give you the power to defeat them." Diego stared at the figures of the three guys who had made his life miserable. The ones who had made it impossible for anyone to forget his 'accident'. He could fight back? Never in his life had it occurred to him that he would be able to. But what was that about cowardly rulers? As if reading his mind, Hope placed a finger on the boy's lips. "I will explain more when you unite with the others of your cause. For now, I give you the power of energy. The power that cursed you, will be your sword." And with that, Hope disappeared and Diego once again found himself in the grip of Mark and Gordon. Daniel was still taunting him as if nothing had happened. Maybe nothing had and he had simply blanked out? But...It had felt so real! He could still feel Hope's warm glow on his skin. And he felt different, he felt like how he did before he wet himself, but this was different. He didn't feel it in his groin, but in his chest. He felt as if he could shake the bullies off like flies. He might as well try. What did he have to lose? "I SAID STOP IT!" Diego roared and suddenly he felt a loud pulsing in his ears, his body was getting warm like he had a fever, but it felt good. He stared down at his hands and saw that they were yellow and no longer solid, they were twitching and crackling like static! Wait? His hands? He was no longer restrained! He glanced to his side and saw that Mark and Gordon were lying on the ground on either side of him, groaning and clutching themselves. Daniel was on the ground in front of him, his eyes wide with fear as he quickly scrambled backwards on his butt. "Get out of here. Now." Diego snarled, and Daniel ran off screaming bloody murder.
