My Hero 001: Captain Neptune Meets a Girl

[Captain Neptune had just set a net full of people down after pulling them out of the way of an avalaunch with a NOT!stolen fishing net.] -11:27 Jun 10
[Gwenyver is not having the greatest of vacations! Her horoscope was right! ] -11:28 Jun 10
Captain Neptune: After setting down the holiday makers he immediatly dodged the gaggle of press by fluing into the police cordon and landing in front of the coordinator and explaingin the situation. What he did NOT mention was thta he had been in that bus too, on holidya for his borthday. -11:34 Jun 10 Captain Neptune
Gwenyver: Gwen was not apt to believe horoscopes, especially when they said something attuned to Life will flash before your eyes when tragedy strikes, but you’ll find other fish in the sea!, but when you nearly died and wind up scoops away with net full of other people, you start thinking a little harder about these things. Emergency workers were already swarming to handle the rescued tourists, and she could hear the shouts of excited news people having a fit. Everything seemed to be okay but… One, two, six… This couldn’t be everyone! "Um! Uhhhm?" She counted again, this time she took a look at faces, but she definitely knew one was missing! Gwen dodged an EMT with a shock blanket, looking for their well timed hero! "Wait! This isn’t everyone!" -11:38 Jun 10 Gwenyver
Captain Neptune: It was not unusual to have peopel rushing after him, notr was it unusual for it to be people he’d just rescued, and when the breathless woman stopped in front of him as he was heading back towards the survivers he stopped for onlu a second. "Yes it is, I was ther, I counted." before he entered the tent where the survivors were beign herded for checkups and snack. Maybe he could grab a snack too. -11:44 Jun 10 Captain Neptune
Gwenyver: "Everyone eas in a jumbled you must have missed counted, because I know one is missing!" Bother, she chased after him, grabbing on to his arm to pull him back towards the tent entrance. "He is tallish, maybe your height or a little shorter, and wore an old coat, and was with us because he gave that old woman his seat on the tour bus!" Gwen tugged and pulled. Time was of the essense! "He could be buried alive! You have to find him!" -11:47 Jun 10 Gwenyver
Captain Neptune: He paused again. "Are you sure you didn;t hit your head?" He put a hand to her head as if to feel her tempreture. "Oh you mean the dark haired man about this tall?" he held his hand out just below his hieght ith helmet nadn boots. "He was tired so I took him home. Poor fellow, I’m sure after some rest and a good breakfast he’ll be up and about in no time." he dodge past her to enter the tent. She would need a snack too. -11:58 Jun 10 Captain Neptune
Gwenyver: "You couldn’t have, there was no time to take him home and why one earth would you there are a dozen of us!" She was right on his heels, grabbing his arm again. Determined to make him listen. "We can’t waste any time, if he’s not crushed by rocks he’ll sufforcate within a few minutes. You’ve got to look for him." She did take a glance around just to make sure that she hadn’t overlooked him somewhere. But no, everyone else was definitely accounted for! -12:02 Jun 11 Gwenyver
Captain Neptune: "He’s uhh… friend. Hates press attention because of his… rash. But if it makes you fell better I’ll go and make sure no one else it up there. You need to relax and eat something, it will help with that rapid heartrate." then he was leaving the tent, snackless and hopefully ALONE. -12:11 Jun 11 Captain Neptune
Gwenyver: Gwen should have left it at that, he was a world renowned super hero after all! But she was concerned and worried, and not the sort of person that could sit still and forget what was going on. No one else seemed to even care or notice he was missing! So she was following him out of the tent, fretting and wringing her hands, and very likely about to go searching amongst the landslide debris to help him look. Only now noticing as they stepped out that she seemed to be missing her shoes! If that whole mess took her shoes, who knew where the man could be buried! -12:16 Jun 11 Gwenyver
Captain Neptune: Not more than five minutes later a man emerged from behind a tree, clean as if he had just stepped out of the shower but wearign the same clothes. "Here I am." he called out, his shirt, messy hezel haired heas breaking out into a smile as he walked past her. "Now let’s go get snacks, I hear they help with shocj after disasters which is strange since other than lightning I dont know one that’s all that shocking." -12:46 Jun 11 Captain Neptune
Gwenyver: "You..!" She stopped frozen in place for a moment, a little baffled. There he was! Perfectly fine as if he hadn’t been on the bus at all. "Um…" A bit speechless she glanced around and then up, looking for Captain Neptune, but now he was no where to be seen. Looking for this man? She trailed after him. "I’m glad you’re all right! I was sure you were buried in the landslide, you weren’t in the net when Captain Neptune scooped us all up. You…" Something wasn’t quite right, maybe she was going in to shock? -12:51 Jun 11 Gwenyver
Captain Neptune: "I was, just like you." he said perfectly calmly. "Captain Neptune pulled me out." This was the perfect plan, he got to avoice suspition, not get asked questiosn and get snacks. "Let’s eat, what are they handing out? I hope there’s curry. I love curry though they dont have them where I’m from. Oh hello doctor, another pacient for you! Take good care of her." -01:05 Jun 11 Captain Neptune
Gwenyver: "But you aren’t.." Double bother. The Doctor had her by the arm and was flashing her in the eyes with something. Making her blink and squint for second. "There we are now. Eyes good, any dizziness? Light headed? Cuts or scrapes?" they asked, checking her head for lumps. Someone finally got a blanket around her, depsite her protesting. "I’m just fine! Oh a little dizzy and bruised maybe I’m not really…" Where did he get off too? Every one she spotted was covered head to toe in dirt and mud. Ripped clothes or missing shoes and purses. There he was. Not a spot on him! She started to follow when the doctor detained her, giving a very long lecture about delayed shock, concussions and internal bleeding. -01:11 Jun 11 Gwenyver
Captain Neptune: He sat down with a plastic cup of water and a wrapped sandwich and smilled at everyone as they walked by, one or twice peopel asked him which victim he was the family of and he said that he was one of the victims until finally thyey were starign to be trasported into ambulances, so one seemed to know what to do with him. -01:30 Jun 11 Captain Neptune
Gwenyver: Gwen felt a little delerious, and maybe a bit crazy. It was probably normal under the circumstances, especially with the doctor prattling on about concussions. But she wasn’t making any progress in her escape and Captain Neptune never returned, leaving her wildly pondering theories. She was being led towards the tent entrance, likely to be packed away in to an ambulance. But she needed to talk to that man…! "Wait, my husband! I can’t go without my husband, there he is!" She pointed and made a very big fuss about not getting in to an ambulance without him! -01:37 Jun 11 Gwenyver
Captain Neptune: [coloe=yellow]:Sir, you wife is being laoded into an ambulance, it you would come with us…"[/color] He looked aorund startled. "Impossible, I’m not married, I was once but that was a long time ago. Now I’m not racist but I couldn’t get past the fact that she had two heads and the other one was dating a slug. Not that I ahve a problen with slugs but that slug was my cousin and that WAS a little weird." "Please come with us… we need to run a few tests." "Okay, but I’m telling you I’m not married!" -01:56 Jun 11 Captain Neptune
Gwenyver: This was tiring and her feet hurt enough from walking a day and now it was just worse wandering about with no shoes. Once she was tucked in to the ambulance and her ‘husband’ bundled in with her, it was a relief to be sitting down with the vehicles air conditioning running. Even if she did realize her purse was missing now too. She eyed him, with her clothes perfectly in place and his hair not a bit mangled or messy. The EMTs were jumping up front in to their seats. "Did you manage to find him?" She asked the man, hoping she was being clever and not crazy! -02:02 Jun 11 Gwenyver
Captain Neptune: "Oh, so you’re my wife, I’m relieved. For a minute there I though id might have been that fourty year old with the gammey liver. Whooo does she need a doctor." He looked at her. "Find who? I’m smith Johnson, on holoday for my birthday. Who am I meant to be looking for, and how are we married? I don’t remember being married." -02:04 Jun 11 Captain Neptune
Gwenyver: Oh dear. That wasn’t the sort of answer she was expecting, which left her blinking in speachless confusions. "Erm… I-" Did he actually HAVE a concussion? Her mouth twisted up as she eyed his clothing and the rest of him. There wasn’t a bruise or scratch on him, though! "Happy Birthday, …Smith Johnson?" A peculiar name! "I’m not actually you’re wife, I just wanted to talk to you, but maybe I made a mistake. I thought you may have been dead and I was worried…" -02:08 Jun 11 Gwenyver
Captain Neptune: "Oh yes, I’m fine, thanks for asking. A little thisty but that can’t really be helped. How are you?" he asked with a warm smile. "Actually you’re looking pretty good for someone who was in an overturned bus burried under mud. You’ve got a spaired ankle." He looked at the joint and his eyes sraveles slowly up her body. "A bruis forming in your thigh and some internal scaring from a childhood injury as weel as a few knocks but other than that right as rain. You must come from a healthy family." -02:28 Jun 11 Captain Neptune
[Captain Neptune is now known as: Smith Johnson] -02:32 Jun 11
Gwenyver: "You must be a doctor." How surprising that he could figure all of that out just by lo- Wait a moment, that was just impossible! Now she was even more confused. "Hmm, I’m glad you’re all right in any case. I’m sorry that Captain Neptune had to bring you back from your home just to ease my worrying. He left before I even got to thank him or give him his Hero’s kiss too." -02:33 Jun 11 Gwenyver
Smith Johnson: "Well wherever he is I’m sure he know youre gratful." he said. "If a little confused as to why you said I’m your husband. Lying is bad. I’m going to ahev to tell everyone we’re not actually married. I wonder if I should tell my father too. He’s been wanting me to get married again but I just hadn’t met the right woman, or at least I havn’t told her she’s the right woman yet. I have to figure out how best to do it without startling her, she’s in no condition to run away with her ankle. You know how it is though…" -03:00 Jun 11 Smith Johnson
Gwenyver: Gwen was completely confused by him. He was babbling a bunch of silly things, and though she wasn’t sure whether or not SHE had a concussion, she was definitely sure there had to be something wrong with HIM! He couldn’t possibly be Captain Neptune, this man wasn’t all that put together. Gwen finally sighed and grinned. Leaning to plant a kiss on his cheek. "Since you are his friend, give him that for me and tell him Thank You. I won’t call you my husband ever again!" -03:05 Jun 11 Gwenyver
Smith Johnson: "Oh… well theres a dissapointment." he said "And don’t worry I’ll tell him." So she wasn’t the one like she felt like she was. "And I apologize but you really seemed like destiny. I guess I’m just a little shaken up, this is the longest I’ve spoken to a stranger who wasn’t a reporter or worked for the govementment in a long time. But that’s what holidays are for. Do you mind if I get Captain Neptune to take me home when we get to the hospital? Once I tell them I’m not really your husband."" -03:10 Jun 11 Smith Johnson
Gwenyver: "Destiny? No, my name is Gwenyver." she looked concerned, and pressed the back of her hand against his cheek. Mostly to see if he was clammy or sweaty and about to pass out or something. He was confused! "I think maybe you should come in to the hospital with me if you are that rattled. You shouldn’t be home alone just in case there is something wrong with your head!" -03:14 Jun 11 Gwenyver
Smith Johnson: He didn’t get to reply since they adired and he was pushed into a wheelchair to be pushed alongside her. "My head is perfectly fine." He said confidently. "Don’t worry I’mm be out of here in no time. I’ll come and say goodbye if you like. Then I’ll have to look up Gwenyver, I don’t think I’ve heard that word before. Your ideas of fate interest me a great deal. We don’t haev anythign liek that were I’m from. Everyone learns quantum mechanics by age 6 so we never have to wonder what’s behind it all." -03:19 Jun 11 Smith Johnson
Gwenyver: "I meant that my-" Maybe trying to explain her name right then was not the right moment. He was incredibly interesting, though, even if she wasn’t sure if she should believe a word he said! And because he wasn’t her husband, they were going to end up separate soon. She reached out with both her hands to take his while she still had a chance to. "Do you promise to come say goodbye? I’ll probably never see you again. I’ll have to go back home after today." -03:25 Jun 11 Gwenyver
Smith Johnson: "I never break a promise." he said holding up his hand, thumb and pinky spread but the rest of his fingers together. "If I did I’d become violently ill. I might be alergic. Very messy. So I will come a visit you." -03:30 Jun 11 Smith Johnson
