Epilogue

Student Council Building 5, Vice President of Security Office

Enforcer Wade grumbled to himself while he wrote the report about the operation. The vice president that he had been following the orders of had disappeared and because of the recent events Wade had been temporally promoted to acting vice president until there could be a new election. Now he had been placed in charge of dealing with the entire debacle at the Ark Tunnel Reactor.

The entire incident was trying to be swept under the table but because of Inspector Grim and Phantom Thief Rose being involved that was turning out to be extremely difficult. Wade was glad about that anyways. Hiding things they wanted to forget about was an unfortunate habit of the Student Council and he was doing what he could to remedy that.

Rebuilding the Ark Tunnel Reactor was one of the primary concerns. Most of the power in the University District had come from that reactor. There had been thousands of complaints that day when power failed. They were now importing energy from the Business District but that was expensive. So however was replacing the Ark Tunnel Reactor.

He scanned down the list of engineers that were working on the project. The one on the top of the list was probably the most instrumental. They had saved countless hours of labor and tons of money by hiring her. That more then made up for the normally outlandish fee she was charging. Wade guess that was to be expected considering what happened. They should be glad they managed to convince Emiray to help at all.

The other thing he had to deal with was letter of apology to the Belly. It seemed they have been furious that Emiray had been attacked and put in such a dangerous situation. It had taken days of negotiations to finally get them to calm down again. No district could survive without the Belly engineers willing to support them. The apology had included a generous offer of access to the University District technology and the Belly had quickly taked them up on that offer.

With that over with there were still more issues for the temporary Student Council Vice President to deal with. Wade thought this must be a special torture designed specially for him because he had failed to defeat Svenn. Svenn, yes, he had to be dealt with too.

Normally someone who committed crimes like that would be locked up forever but the Student Council never let talent Esper like that get away from them. Svenn had been put under constant surveillance and under the direct command of Wade. Wade sighed and looked over at Svenn who was sitting at a nearby table. At least he had someone to help him with his tasks as Vice President.

Then there was the issue with Professor Gray. Apparently Inspector Grim and Gray had talked for an extended period of time before Grim handed him other to the University Security. Grim said it had to do with secret organizations but would give specifics while saying that he would deal with it himself. Gray might have said something but only a few days after he was imprisons somebody managed to break him out of jail. Wade had people trying to locate Gray but so far they had come up with nothing.

At least Phantom Thief Rose was not turning out to be an issue. The University District had formally withdrawn its charges against Phantom Thief Rose. Vice President Wade had heard that the entire incident had caused a huge increase in fame for Phantom Thief Rose, the first Phantom Thief to be successful outside the Entertainment District.

In fact it was apparently so popular that a famous jewelry store in the Business District had hired a Phantom Thief to steal from them as a form of advertisement. Wade didn’t know which bothered him more, that a company had decided to do that or that it was apparently working. Unfortunately for Wade he hadn’t managed to make any profit or save any money because or Phantom Thief Rose’s theft of the Euclidian Key. In fact he still hadn’t gotten a raise even after getting promoted to Vice President. Life was so cruel to the young.

Lynn had been formally pardoned as well but she seemed to completely ignore all the publicity. Wade had been in charge of attempting to recruit her into the Student Council but Lynn seemed to be avoiding him. He had even gone to her apartment to speak with her only to find a note saying that she had to cancel the appointment because she wasn’t to visit the moon.

If it was possible is seemed that Lynn had gotten even more powerful. The University was attempting to convince her to go through the level testing procedure again but that was going about as well as getting her to join the Student Council was going. Until the testing happened they couldn’t officially recognize her as the first level 9 but the records had already been changed to mark her as a level 8+.

Lynn also didn’t see to be around very often. Wade had gotten numerous requests from Ivan that they need her assistance with various research. Wade suspected that it would take her a while before she wanted to participate in any more research. What happened with the Euclidian Key still probably weighted on her mind. Still Wade had tried to pass the message through both Rose and Emiray. Those were the only two who seemed to have very much interactive with Lynn.

Wade looked over his papers again. There was still the funeral of Professor Harold to oversee. Wade had been responsible for informing all the necessary parties. Harold had a son whom Wade had been trying to track down. It had been quite a pain but he had managed to locate the son and inform him about his father’s death. Surprisingly Emiray had asked to see the man after she found out about the funeral.

All in all everything had managed to wrap up quite well, except for the large amount of paper work that Wade was responsible for doing. He briefly wondered how long he would last. He hoped that the new student elections would come soon so that he could retire from being a Vice President and return to the relative peace of being and Enforcer.

June 15th
Prometheus Project Secret Hideout

“Professor Gray, you have failed. I hope you understand the gravity of what you have done.” The dark figure stared down at the figure huddled on the floor. The old man on the floor was bruised and beaten, tired and hungry.

Gray managed to rasp some sound but it was nearly inaudible. “Due to your failure several key agents had to abandon their positions, and for what? Nothing!” The voice screamed down at Gray who was flinched away from the voice.

“I was forced to give up my position on the Student Council because those who knew about by orders managed to survive. No apology is enough to recover from your failure. Not to mention that in the last crucial moment you failed to do what needed to be done.”

“The Prometheus Projects is devoted to the greater good. We are willing to suffer if that is what is needed for progress but you. You are making us suffer for nothing. What would the titan think if he saw you? He would be disappointed.”

The former Vice President paced back and forth in thought. Then he turned back to Professor Gray. I hope you are ready for your punishment. It will be as eternal and painful as the titan’s, I hope you will the appreciate your failure. The man turned his back on Gray and opened the door out of the room.

“I hope I am not intruding.” Said a voice from the other side of the doorway. The former Vice President startled backward and began pulling out a gun. Then he saw who it was on the other side of the doorway. The gun clattered to the floor and he collapsed to the floor.

Lynn stepped through the doorway and stared down at the man, “I hope you weren’t expecting me to just give up. You hurt my friends and I am not going to just let you get away with that. I heard what you were saying to Gray so you shouldn’t mind suffering as intense and the titan suffered. It that right.”

Lynn grabbed the man by his collar and grabbed Gray’s dirty and stained coat with her other hand. Then they were high in the sky. Both men screamed in horror and the plummeted toward the earth. Then there was a jerking sensation and everything stopped moving. They were holding still in the air.

“As entertaining as it is to hear you both scream, could you please avoid that. I might get distracted and accidentally let you fall to your deaths. You wouldn’t want that to happen now would you?” The two men shook there heads vigorously.

Lynn smiled. She couldn’t actually distract her enough to make her accidentally drop them but the noise had been annoying and getting them to stop had been important. If she had scared them too much then good, they deserved it.

She pointed. “Look, it was your secret hideout Mr. Former Vice President.” She pointed toward the building that Gray had been kept in. “Boom.” Said Lynn and the building exploded upward. Bits and pieces of what used to be a building clattered down. “Now, I’m not to ask you nicely once so make sure to answer. Who is in charge of the Prometheus Project.”

There was stumbling words spoken by both Gray and the Former Vice President. “Speak up now, I can’t head you well.” Then the former vice president spoke the name. Lynn frowned before saying, “But that is impossible.”

“It is the truth. At least that is what the leader goes by. I have never meet the leader so I don’t know any more then that. I promise.” Stammered the man.

Lynn nodded and then they were falling again. Just before they hit the ground Lynn moved the further along toward her destination.



There was a clatter at Vice President Wade’s window. He looked up and saw a hand waving at him. Standing up he moved other toward the window and looked outside. There, standing in mid air was Lynn. She was holding two scruffy men by their collars. Wade blinked as he recognized both of them. “What? How? When?” Wade stammered.

“No important. If you want to know then ask them. I’m sure they will be happy to answer your questions.” She tossed them through the window. “This is really the Student Council’s issue and since I have decided not to join the Student Council I am leaving them in your hands. Is that alright with you?”

“Ah, yes, I will be able to deal with them. Since I am temporarily the one of the Vice President they fall under my jurisdiction. But I don’t know if I am strong enough to pacify the former Vice President.”

“Don’t worry about that. If he gives you a hard time them I will pay him another visit.” She looked at the huddling man and Wade suddenly got the impression that the former vice president would be on best behavior to avoid that visit. Lynn spoke again, “Now I have to get going. I promised Emiray that I would bring her to see on of Rose’s thefts. Since I have been busy tracking down those two I haven’t had a chance yet. Maybe I’ll see you around.” Then Lynn was gone again.
