When we last left our heroes, they were trying to find a place to start practicing their super powers. Their newly found friend, the talking fox, said he might be able to help.
"Follow me, " he said, and started walking towards the alley.
Johnny gave Mike a sideways look. "Should we trust him?"
"I don't know...I don't think he's evil."
"Yeah, I feel like we should trust him, but I'm not sure."
"Well, if he is mischievous, we could probably take him," Mike said.
"Yeah, we can take him out if we have to."
"Hey, guys, I'm right here, can you not talk about offing me when I'm right in front of you?"
"Oh, right. Lead the way!."
"Um, okay, but will you promise not to off me?"
Mike and Johnny looked at each other. Mike turned to the fox. "We promise not to off you. We're the good guys, remember?"
And that assurance was enough to assuage the fox's fears, and he began to lead the two down the alley.
