[WP] 100 25 year olds have been chosen. each must choose a super power that cannot be repeated and cannot exceed the power of god. The goal is to see who can conquer the world. You have the number 100. The best powers have already been chosen. Then it's your turn and you choose.....

*****

A flash of Bright Light and a Loud Humming noise woke me up. I found myself in a Room with a bunch of other People that looked just as confused as I was.

"WHAT THE HELL IS GOING ON?! WHERE AM I?!" Somebody shouted. Others looked around terrified, whereas some others were still in the Process of waking up and trying to take everything in.

One Person got up and went to a small assortment of Benches and lit himself a Cigarette. She looked about as nonchalant as could be, given this strange Situation.

Instead of Panicking, or being frozen in Fear I decided it would be best to get a clearer picture and as this Woman clearly seemed to know something I decided to get up and talk to her.

"Hey, uhm, so,..." She interrupted me by raising a Finger, pointing at her Cigarette. The room got louder. "WHAT IS GOING ON?!" The guy kept screaming, scaring the few that looked like they where already having a Panic Attack even more. "YOU THERE!" He pointed at me. "YOU look like you know something! What is going on here? WHERE ARE WE?!" He stomped towards me and just as he was reaching out his arm to grab me, the Mysterious Woman put out her Cigarette in a little Case she kept in her Jacket Pocket.

"Don't touch him" she said coldly, "you'll know in just a few minutes. But first check your Wrists" We did as we were told. My Wrist displayed the number 100. The Guy had the number 17. "Has everybody checked their number? Good. Come with me"

She walked behind the benches, her Black Skirt flowing behind her. Underneath one could make out some Red Leggings and Black Leather Boots. As she walked over to the Wall, a Panel opened up and she spoke something into the Panel. It wasn't a Language I recognized but right now I wasn't paying much attention either as the Wall opened up to reveal a Large Room with Chairs and a Stage in the Middle. "You guys, gals and non-binary Pals go ahead and find you a good seat. You will be called up shortly" "HOW ABOUT YOU FINALLY TELL US WHAT WE ARE DOING HERE!" The Fellow screamed in her Face. She stared

"HOW ABOUT YOU FINALLY TELL US WHAT WE ARE DOING HERE!" The fellow screamed in her face. She stared Daggers at him and grabbed his shoulder when she reached him. "How about you do as you're being told for now, Big Guy before I change my mind and only 99 of you get to Participate?!" He tried to struggle but it looked like he couldn't move an inch away from her grip. "WHAT IS THIS? YOU'RE BREAKING... MY... SHOUL...-" CRACK.

He screamed out in Agony as his arm dropped a little lower. "Go and sit your ass down before I seriously break your Arm!" Every one did what they were told.

Screaming guy sat next to me as he was holding his arm trying to suppress his Tears. "She is crazy, man! Crazy! Can you fix this?" I had taken some First Aid classes but I couldn't do anything about a Dislocated Shoulder. "Here, let me see." A Young girl got up from behind him and looked at his Shoulder. "Good lord! How Crazy strong is this Woman? I can make out every single finger on your Shoulder! Here hold still and don't move, this will hurt for a second" she skillfully picked up his arm and guided it into the Proper Position. "On Three! One, Tw...-" SNAP. She popped the arm right back into socket. "YOU BITCH!" "Yeah, Yeah, you would've tensed up at three and it wouldn't have worked as easily. Relax, the pain should subside quickly and you're welcome by the Way!"

I liked her, she seemed scared of the whole situation but put helping somebody first despite her Fear. No matter what's going to happen, I'd like to make sure I'm on her side.

The Room went dark and Gasps and Whispers filled the Air. A Spotlight illuminated the Stage and on Stage was a Glass Pyramid. The Air filled with Static as the Pyramid lit up and a 3D Silhouette appeared.

"WELCOME! I am sure you all must be consuming why you're here, so let's cut right to the Chase. My Name is K.I.G.A. Tonight you will all get a Superpower!" Some people got excited, Others were still Terrified. The Air has noticeably changed though. "Here's how this works," the Figure proclaimed "Each one of you has a Number on your Wrist from one to One Hundred. Each one of you will come up here, according to your number and you will get to choose your Superpower!"

Excitement started to make its rounds in the Room that was closely watched by our Mystery Lady. "There are a few rules though. Number 1: You cannot choose Godlike Powers like Omniscience. Anything below that is fair game!" The Excitement died down a little bit but some people still had Awe in their eyes.

"Rule Number 2: Every Person gets one Power and that will be the only Person to receive that specific Power! So if somebody chooses say Spiderman's Powers nobody else can receive that same Power! Panic started to flood the room. Excited whispers and whispers of despair filled the Air.What if somebody else chose the Power you'd want?

"Number 3: After receiving your Powers, you will return to your Beds at Home. Afterwards your goal is to Conquer the World by any Means necessary!"

The Room turned loud as people were Gasping for Air from this Goal, Others shouted in Disbelief and others gave in to Despair.

Shall we get started? Number 1 please come up to the Stage!"

A Scrawny Guy got up. His Dirty Blonde hair partially covering his Glasses, as he made his way to the Front. Everybody in the Room stared at him like he was the Messiah.

"Please enter" The Figurine in the Pyramid said as the Front of the Pyramid vanished into the Ground. As he stepped in the Door Closed behind him.

"What Power would you like?" "Our goal is to conquer the World, correct? So something like Strength would seem very Practical" "So you'd like Superstrength?" K.I.G.A. asked. "Yeah, I guess. I should be able to take Over the World if I'm Strong enough, right?" K.I.G.A. smiled. "We'll see how well you'll do. Here you go" The lights went out and the Pyramid lit up briefly. The Scrawny young man, stepped out unchanged.

"Hey! I thought I got superstrength? Why do I still look like this?" K.I.G.A. looked confused. "What does Strength have to do with how you look?" "I guess you're right" the man hung his head in disappointment. He got called out by our Mystery Lady. "Come on, Kid! We don't have all night! If you're so disappointed, why don't you try lifting something?" He looked up at her and decided to grab one of the Chairs with somebody still in it. To everybody's amazement the Chair and Person went higher and higher without any effort on the Blonde Man's Part. His Face lit up. "It feels like I'm lifting a Bag of Air! This is awesome!" "Alright then, come on! Home you go!" He walked up to the door and disappeared into the light.

"Number 2, please!" K.I.G.A. said in a pleasing Voice. I started to get worried. The more people went, the more my ideas for Powers ran out. So far only the most common Powers got picked. Strength, Mindcontrol, Elemental Control, Flying and so on.

"What are you gonna pick?" I asked our Loud Buddy. "Gee, I dont know. Speed, maybe? I did want Superstrength but oh well... Thank you for Fixing my Arm by the Way, Chick!" I turned to the Girl, "and you?" She looked annoyed "My name is River and as said you're welcome. Don't overdo it with that Arm in the near future though. I think I'll go with Healing if it's still available" she pulled her sleeve back to reveal a 73. "And you? What's your number?" "I think im screwed..." I showed her my Number. "100?! Seriously?! I kinda feel sorry for you..." "HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA, You got 100?! That is hilarious! You are screwed, man!" I looked at the Floor in front of me wracking my Brain.

Slowly but surely the room emptied until only I remained. The Mystery Lady walked up to me to get me on Stage. "Come on, dude! There isn't much to choose from what most people would want. I hope you're creative!" She chuckled. I got up, my mind going 100 miles an Hour. River got her Healing Powers, Loud Mouth got Super Speed, Empathy, Humor, Weathercontrol and Hyperintelligence have been taken. My last 2 Choices dropped in the 90's, Plant Control and Animal Control. I didn't know what to do.

"Have you decided?" K.I.G.A asked. "I'm not sure. Was immortality taken?" "Yes" "Gravity Control?" "No, but it is considered a Godlike Power so I cannot grant it to you. I'm Sorry." "Man, this is rough..." suddenly I had an Idea. "What do you consider Godlike Abilities?" K.I.G.A looked amused. "Well Godlike Powers include, Omniscience, Anything that allows you to create or delete things from existence with little more than a flick of the Wrist, the Power to grant Superpowers, Anything that Holds the Universe together like Gravity, Atom Manipulation and lastly the Power to Copy the others Powers."

"That is exactly what I wanted to hear" I smiled as I looked at K.I.G.A in her Pyramid. "I know what I want" "Then get in there, Already!" The Mystery Lady picked me up with one hand and tossed me in the Chamber. "Geez, Renna! Be nice to number 100! He's got the hardest lot!" "Fine!" Renna stormed off towards the door and lit herself a cigarette.

"I'm sorry, she can be impatient" "No problem, but that kinda hurt..." I looked up and I was standing in what looked like the Cosmos. A Dark, vast Room with lights of all sorts of Colors, Swirls and lines. I felt weightless, my mind clear and my idea cemented in my head.

"This is amazing! I remarked. "Is this the Universe?" "That's right! From here I can see everything and every one! But you can't take over for me either" she chuckled but it was a friendly Gesture. "Alright, that threw that idea out but I thought of another," I smiled as I looked into K.I.G.A's Animated Face "Luck has been taken Right?" "No. Luck wasn't chosen yet" "I figured. Please Grant me Luck or Probability Manipulation. Whichever one you can Grant me" K.I.G.A looked amused "I'll give you them Both considering they are basically the same. Whether you're lucky or Manipulate Probability you can have any outcome you want. Smart"

"I have never been particularly Lucky so it'll be nice to see what this Power Brings!" I laughed as I was covered by what looked like Stardust. It tickled. "I guess I'll see you soon, K.I.G.A. You said any Means Necessary, but you don't want needless Bloodshed I'm assuming?" "Of course not! Humans are very interesting! Especially in that transitional Period between their 20th and 30th Trip around the Sun! Can't have more of these Games if you all kill each other!"

I laughed and Thanked K.I.G.A for the Chance. Ironic, really. But when I woke up, back in my Bed, I felt refreshed for once in a Really long time and decided that I needed to test the limits of this Power!

THE END.
