The creatures in front of him hissed. It was as if they could sense their end was coming, either that or they were just really hungry. The latter was probably true.
Harry broke in a run, charging at the two monsters, jumping into the air inches before he collided with them. The air around him crackled with thunder as it ionized rapidly. Lightning flickered across his hands and his eyes started to glow a brilliant dark cyan.
"Vankous, a little help, I don't want to accidentally break the ice!!" yelled Harry as he spread his wings to keep gliding.
"Do it yourself," yelled Vankous.
"Are you really going to do this right now?" asked Harry.
"Oh stop wasting time," said Stean, charging towards the creatures. He picked the first one up by its tooth and flung it into the air like a tennis ball. Harry flashed him a quick thumbs up before turning and blasting the creature into a million pieces with a concentrated burst of lightning.
The next creature followed suit not long after and Harry landed gracefully on the ice on one knee and one hand curled into a fist.
"Really?" said James, walking over, "superhero landing."
"Its a fun landing technique," said Harry, "if you've got unbreakable knees."
"Oh yeah," said Stean, with a laugh, "James, don't you go around doing that."
"Oh I can manage," said James.
"That was pathetic," said Vankous, floating in on a cushion of energy.
"What?" said Harry, turning to him.
"What took you so long to defeat that stupid creature?" asked Vankous.
"I had other priorities," said Harry, "but that's not important, let's get back to enjoying this day off. We aren't going to get another day like this for quite some time."
"What?" chorused Vankous and James.
"You'll find out why once you've done this for a million years," said Harry.
"It already feels like three million years," said Vankous.
"Oh stop being dramatic, its only been two thousand something years," said Stean.
"That's two thousand more years than I was planning on living," said James.
"Its what happens when you hang out too long in the time stream," said Harry, "Come on, let's actually go and barbeque something."
Stean's communicator rang out.
"One second guys," he said, picking up the call.
"Heyy sis, what you upto?" he asked.
"Ice Dancing?" he said slowly, frowning at Harry. Harry made an 'I'll explain later' gesture.
"Oh nothing, I was just looking at stuff, you know, this uhh..."
"Movie," mouthed Harry.
"Movie," said Stean, "and I totally picked up ice dancing sometime in the last century. Didn't I ever tell you?" Stean glared at Harry.
Harry shrugged. James meanwhile was covering his mouth with the pack of chips, trying desperately not to burst into laughter. Vankous was just rolling his eyes.
"Holy mother of macaroni, that is not good," said Stean, "We will be there ASAP."
"What was that about?" asked Harry.
"Um, there's a situation there," said Stean, "and umm...well we have to go."
"Seriously?" asked Harry.
"Someone kidnapped Tapu and Jen," said Stean.
All three of them rolled their eyes in unison.
"No I'm serious, they were pretending to be regular humans out on a shopping trip and some dudes just swooped in and well kidnapped Tapu and a bunch of others. They couldn't risk blowing their cover and before you ask, magic and telepathy would have been useless."
"Oh come on, this is a day off," said Vankous, "I vote that we just let Shania handle this alone."
"That's not a good plan," said Harry.
"I second Harry," said James.
"Yeah, we can't just leave it to Shania, she can't track anyone down without equipment, and all of that is you know..." Stean gestured outside.
"Undergoing repairs," finished James, "so what do we do now?"
"Got any orders for us, Captain Hardy?" asked Vankous.
Stean gave him and expectant look.
"Next time we have a day off, I'm taking you guys to the first omegaverse," said Harry.
"Good plan," said Vankous, "but seriously, what's our plan here."
"Like every other plan we've ever had, find the coordinates, find a way to get there and..."
"Improvise," chorused the other three.
"Precisely," said Harry, with a smile.
