“The power of an individual cannot be overstated but the power of a group cannot be fathomed,” Riko said. “That is what the Zanderia is. A group, a coalition of the galaxy’s greatest heroes and fighters that have diligently kept watch over this man, this one man.”
“And yet, there’s rumor that he murdered one the great Six Pillars of Magic,” one of the Justices said. “Is this true?”
“What I want to know is what gives the Zanderia the legal right to hold this man when they have no legal rights at all,” the Chief Justice said. “The Zanderia cannot operate in a court of law. Riko, you are here as an honored guest of this Supreme Court, but I don’t seem to understand how you think there’s a negotiation to be had.”
The Chief Justice slammed her gavel down again. “A goddess?”
“A missile?” Kyle asked. “That’s insane.”
“That’s the advancement of human technology,” Riko said.
Kyle, still in his Blue Nexus attire, crossed his arms and turned toward a fresh, clean-shaven Boomer, who also stood and watched the TV. He had his hand to his mouth, shaking his head at the lies that were being spread. Kyle really wondered if he minded that much. If the Delta Squad took credit then so what? The Zanderia would still answer the call if a massive threat like that happened again; hell, they would’ve just been teleported to this event anyway if Riko didn’t want to boost security.
Kyle opened the door. He heard the buzzing of a drone nearby, and a thought crossed his mind. A small bit of energy filled his hand, just enough to destroy it. He nodded.
