Catching The Bus by brad328 Catching The Bus by brad328
Melinda expected her first commute to work, at the new Crane, Poole, and Schmitt LLC law firm in Angel Falls, to be relatively uneventful. At least, it was her hope. Being the youngest person to be named partner in the firm's history was a lot to live up to and being late would not be a great start with her new co-workers.

As are the best laid plains, sometimes things go awry. In this case a careless supervillain knocked a school bus, from nearby Belmont High School (home of the vampires), off the bridge. As the vehicle was plunging to the dark, cold water below Melinda knew that she had to act, punctuality be damned.

Melinda quickly changed and flew towards the screaming children, catching the bus and saving them from a certain demise. As Mindy carried the bus to safety, her eyes met another redhead. She gave the girl a little wink before setting the bus down on the road.

As the traffic was now gridlocked for miles, Mindy gathered her clothes and briefcase and took off into the air towards the towering cityscape . Sometimes, she thought, being super has its benefits.



Great linework by :iconartgk: and colors by :iconsean-loco-odonnell: as usual.

On the one hand, the children certainly are grateful that Mindy saved their lives. On the other, this does mean they’ll have to be going to school, so she shouldn’t expect too much gratitude.

Wonderfully iconic of the superhero ideal. :clap: But more importantly, who do you like in the upcoming game between the Belmont Vampires and the Fighting Nosferatu of Van Helsing Parochial?
