Chapter 21: Power Testing

"Ouch," Johnny said, as he was lying on the ground, his first ever flight cut short by the ceiling.

"You should wear this." Mike had waved his hand and was now wearing a helmet on his head. After helping Johnny off the ground, he handed it to his brother.

"Hmm," Johnny said, looking unamused.

"Well, at least the ceiling doesn't look damaged." Mike said, looking up. "So, we know you don't have super strength."

"Hmm," Johnny said, looking unamused. "I can fly, though. That's pretty cool."

"Yeah, I wonder how many more powers we have or will get."

"Me, too. Maybe we should try to see what other powers we have."

"Ooh, great idea," said Mike, as he reached out a hand and pointed it at Johnny. "BALL OF FIRE!!!"

Nothing happened.

"Dude are you crazy?? What if you had had fireball ability? You would have burned me!"

Mike started to nod. "Yup, yup, that was a pretty bad idea. But, if it's any consolation, I would have been really surprised if it had worked."

"Hmm," Johnny said, looking unamused.
