SERIOUSLY, DUDE, YOU'RE starting to creep me out here," Faith said standing away from the bald headed man who led her down a dark corridor housing God knows what. There were doors leading to separate rooms with only a small, square double glass window to peep at.
She checked out Smallville, Kansas after having a bit of a spat with Buffy -- again. It wasn't her fault that the Potentials still sees her as leader even though Buffy's proven herself time and again, since they all got their asses out of Sunnydale a few years ago, but whenever a disagreement arises majority of the Potentials tend to side with her
as opposed to siding with Buffy.
She was quietly sitting by herself at this trendy coffee shop, Talon, when she was approached by none other than Lex Luthor, the Golden Boy of LuthorCorp. At first she ignored him. Last she heard -- or rather read
-- Lex was already off the market. He was engaged to be married to the owner of the coffee shop and...well, she doesn't want to get into any trouble with his future wife. She escaped Cleveland because of trouble and she'd be damned if she allowed herself to get into trouble while she was supposedly kicking back, relaxing and not thinking about Buffy wanting to kick her hide for making quite an impression on those impressionable Potentials. But looks like you're in trouble now, Faith,
that annoying little voice at the back of her head told her as she continued to follow Lex Luthor down this dimly lit corridor.
"Is there going to be a light at the end of the tunnel soon?" She asked when she could no longer keep her agitation at bay. She knew she could defend herself without breaking a sweat, but since this was new ground for her, she has no idea where the nearest escape route was.
Lex chuckled and stopped at the end of the long -- or it seemed like it -- corridor. A closed heavy steel door barred their way, hiding whatever was behind it from view.
"I was told you're a unique specimen, Faith." Something about Lex's tone warned Faith she just walked in to something way bigger than kicking demon asses. "Now your impressive capabilities makes me wonder...are you a Meteor Freak like the rest of Smallville is or are you something else?" He pushed a button near his waist and the steel doors opened, revealing an even eerier room complete with gadgets that would make Dr. Frankenstein proud.
"Uuuhh...what the hell are you talking about, dude?" Faith tried to buy herself some time. She needed to think up a plan and get herself out of her unscathed. She doesn't like the looks of those damn paraphernalia's on the push cart there.
Lex cocked a brow sardonically, his lip pulled back to a menacing grin. "Come now, Faith, you really didn't think I am completely oblivious to your powers, do you?"
Suddenly she was held back by a pair of thugs she didn't notice were there until she felt them grab her arms. She doesn't know exactly how much Lex Luthor knows about her, but she can only hope that he doesn't know the full extent of her powers
. She'd play the damsel in distress...for now. Once she has devised a plan then his grinning face would be kicked along with whomever got in her way...
