The moment Steelheart knew he wasn’t meant for greatness but for evil and power was the night he first knew he could be vulnerable. It was late the night it happened with clouds full of gloom. The blackness of the night filled the streets and the windows of all the stores. He could hear the cry’s of the people in a far off building he followed the sounds until he was staring at the sign of the bank. He entered not knowing what was to happen next. He opened the doors of the bank reviling the people sitting on the floor he looked up to see an epic standing there. He ran over to to him about ready to stop him when he heard this voice from behind him. “You’re that epic aren’t you?” Steelheart turned around to see this man standing only a foot away.
Steelheart didn’t know what to make of this strange man looking up at him from a distance no one has ever talked to him directly before people were always to afraid to approach him so when this man said this it took him by surprise. He stood not knowing what to say so he said nothing at all the mans face turned form hope to confusion. He looked at steelheart with a puzzled look on his face waiting for him to say anything. Steelheart turned back to the other epic and said ” this is my city” as he said this the doors flew open and swat can barreling in guns pointed directly at the epics. Steelheart didn’t move a muscle he stood staring at the officers while the other epic cowered behind him.
As they were watching the officers a gun shot ran through out the bank followed by the sound of the other epic hitting the ground. Steelheart turned to see the man who had approached him only seconds ago had shot the epic grazing Steelhearts face. Silence came over the bank as everyone looked at the blood running down Steelhearts cheek. The man then began to apologize saying “I’m sorry I wasn’t trying to hit you I swear.”
Steelheart was in disbleife when he felt his blood run down the side of his face. He has never been hurt before so when he realized that he wasn’t as invincible as he once though. He was distraught and caught off guard he knew that once this information got out that people would see him as weak. He looked around to the people and saw himself in their eyes. he watched the blood run down and drip off the side of his face. All he could see was weakness and he knew the people saw that too.
Steelheart knew that the only this he could do now was to get rid of all the evidence so he looked up staring at the man in front of him looking deep into his eyes he then started to kill the people one by one as they screamed pleading with him to spear their lives. He shot out a ball of energy at the man standing there . Steelheart then walked up to the man who was now laying on the ground. He picked up the gun out of the mans hand pointed it at him and fired. This night was the night Steelheart learned to in order to be respected he had to strike fear in the people around him. He also learned that he enjoyed the feeing’s and the power he felt when he took peoples lives.
