Secrets and Lies 3
I stared up at the ceiling, not sure if I felt guilty or if I was just upset. The more I thought about what just happened, the less I felt guilty. How could Kendall expect me to take her side when she was mad at me for hanging out with a friend? It's stupid. I shut my eyes, needing to relax a little bit, but as my eyes closed, the emergency alarm went off. I sat up and groaned. Captain Man was already figuring out what was happening as I was getting to my feet. "What happened," I asked. "Fire, downtown, near Kendall's place," he replied, looking at me. I sighed, using my gum to get into uniform. Captain Man and I left the Man Cave, and headed to the fire. With the help of the Swellview fire department, we were able to get the flames put out. As we were walking back towards the Man Cave, I saw Kendall who came up to us. "Woah, what just happened? Why didn't you call me?" She asked, looking back and forth between Captain Man and me. I didn't say a word, but Captain Man did. "Kendall, listen to me, you're a nice girl. I like you. Henry likes you. But until you can learn to control your emotions and your fire, I'm sorry, but you're not allowed back at the Man Cave. I mean, today, you've burned Henry's hands, caught the Man Cave on fire, practically burned down a whole building! How can you be a hero if you're doing that?" He went on. "Woah, burned down a building? I didn't do that! And you can't be serious that I can't come back! Henry's messed up before. Why is this only happening to me!" Kendall yelled, getting red. "Because I wasn't a villain before, that's why! I'm not going to deny it, I do mess up, but nobody's perfect," I shot back. Kendall rolled her eyes at me, getting red again. 'C'mon Kid Danger, let's go," Captain Man started walking towards the Man Cave. I gave Kendall one last look, and started walking with Captain Man. It was a pretty silent walk back until Captain Man spoke. "Kid, I know you like Kendall, but what I said to her has something to do with you too. You were right, she was a villain before, and you and I have both learned that they don't just change overnight," he said.
