Part 7

Before the Tuner could even finish her roll I had fired a shot into her right leg. Immediately she hit the ground with a thud as her leg collapsed underneath her. Huntsman wouldn't make me the fastest, smartest or strongest but it did have a few upsides. One of them being, it would let me keep track of my target up to five miles as long as they were bleeding. A .40 caliber bullet was definitely going to leave some blood.

I stopped to listen to for a moment and only heard the bustle of the city below us and the harsh breathing of the girl I just shot. Props to her, most people I shoot start screaming or crying immediately. It's very annoying trying to question someone with no composure. Gun still trained on her still form I raised my voice.

"Lay down on your back, head facing me hands and legs out to each side. Reach for anything and a bullet goes in your head no questions asked. Do you understand?"

"Yeah, yeah I heard you." She said. Shifting into the position I requested. Weird...that voice sounded familiar.

As I advanced I kept one eye on her and one eye on the skyline. The fly-guy should have been here by now. Maybe he heard the gunshot and bolted? Anyone looking to pull off this damsel shit probably isn't up for combat. When I got within throwing distance of the Tuner I grabbed the zip ties out of my pocket and tossed them beside her.

"Really Sebastian? Still with the whole zip tie thing. Why don't you ever choose the option where you mount them and beat their face in it's way more fun."

With a groan I stepped closer to look into the Tuner's face. Damn it, it was Sarah-X and the X actually did stand for extreme. The last we spoke she was about to ride a piano down Mt. Everest. Guess she managed to survive. I didn't holster my gun but I did stop pointing it at her forehead.

"What are you doing here Sarah?"

"Oh you know, seeing the sights, taking some photos, getting shot by my friend. By the way this hurts like a bitch. If you want to pass me a bandage that would be great. Very good shooting though."

"You do realize I could've shot you in the head right? What am I talking about of course you do, you just don't care. Why don't you enjoy tame situations like most Tuners?" I ask while opening the med kit bag wrapped around my leg.

"Am I really being lectured by a super villain right now? Lisa told me about at least 20 people you've killed this year, that she knows of. It's only February Sebastian." She scolded, causing me to smile.

"What can I say, it's going to be a busy year in Metro City."
