Sequel to my fanfic "Request Denied"
Movie based, takes place few months after "Rise of the Silver Surfer", and about two months after "Request Denied"
Yes, just as I promised when I finished it, I'm writing a sequel to my fanfic "Request Denied", the second most popular fanfic I've ever written. May "Permission Granted" be just as successful. Unlike "Request Denied", which was mostly comedy with some action/adventure thrown in, "Permission Granted" will be mostly action/adventure with some comedy thrown in. If you haven't read "Request Denied" yet, it is recommended that you do, but not required. The nature of the story will most likely summarize "Request Denied's" plot at some point, so...
One more thing. Also do to the nature of the story, "Permission Granted" will not focus on the Fantastic Four at first, and for most of the story, they'll most likely be background characters. They will turn up, just not right away.
Right, think that's everything, so enjoy. :)
"You want to fight me?" Brian asked, mocking the idea, "You? Well, bring it on!"
Emily smirked in reply. "If you insist." she said.
They were in the school yard after class had let out for the day. Emily Sanchez had hoped for a nice, peaceful, walk home, but then the resident eleventh grade bully, Brian Enver, lacking the usual freshmen prey, decided to pick on her. At first Emily naturally ignored the teasing, but her temper quickly escalated to it's boiling point and soon after, boiled over. Brian, thinking he was all high and mighty, refused to back down, so Emily challenged him to a fight, to which he foolishly accepted.
At first, Emily simply stared Brian down, waiting for him to make the first move, as a crowd began to gather to watch. This action quickly revealed how inexperienced a fighter Brian was, for it took him awhile to catch on that Emily wasn't going to charge him or do any kind of movement that Brian could use his larger size and strength to stop.
So, once he came to this conclusion, he let out a yell and charged his female antagonist. Emily held her ground until the last possible moment before she nimbly side-stepped Brian as he charged by, leaving his exposed backside open for the swift kick Emily delivered to it.
This downed Brian instantly, but the bully was quickly back on his feet. He gave Emily one look of surprise before swinging a right hook at Emily. Emily quickly blocked it with her left arm. So Brian swung a left hook, but Emily blocked it too, this time with her right arm. Her left arm now free, Emily quickly swung it at Brian's exposed face, and connected heavily with the bully's right cheek bone.
Dazed, Brain staggered away for a moment, but Emily was still in motion, quickly bringing her leg behind Brian's foot and tripping him. The large teenage boy promptly fell on his back, and before he could get up, Emily plopped herself down onto his belly, one fist ready to swung.
"Give up?" she asked, glared at her opponent.
Not surprisingly, Brian nodded urgently, scared of the threat Emily posed, and ungainly clambered off on all fours once Emily got off of him. Seeing the fight was over, the crowd quickly began going on their way, some stopping long enough to give Emily praise for beating the bully, but ultimately they all left Emily alone, panting heavily.
Or so she first thought.
"You're quite a fighter." a voice behind her suddenly spoke.
Emily turned and came face to face with a skinny teenage boy, slightly taller than herself, and maybe about a year older than herself. She tried to place a name with the boy's face, but failed.
"Yeah," Emily replied the boy's question. "My older brother taught me most of it before he moved out to become an accountant." she paused for a moment, studying the boy. "Do I know you?" she asked.
The boy shook his head, half-smiling. "New kid." he explained. "My name's Jake Berts." he held out his hand for Emily to shake. She took it.
"Emily Sanchez." Emily replied. "You like my fighting, then?"
"Oh yes." Jake replied enthusiastically. "You seem like the kind of person who doesn't stand down from a challenge."
"Nope." Emily said, stooping down to pick up her book bag. "Kind of a problem when it comes to dares, but I've lived."
"Really." Jake asked, looking interested. He didn't comment more on it though, and instead changed the subject. "Well, Emily as chance would have it, I need the aide of someone like you."
"Really?" Emily asked, sounding sarcastic. "What for?"
"You know that military storage facility that sits not far from town?"
"Know what's in it?"
"No. But the local grape vine says there's aliens in there."
Jake laughed. "No, nothing quite like that is in there."
"How would you know?" Emily asked.
"My Dad works there."
"Oh, so you've gotten in there because of him?"
"Yes, but not as of late." Jake admitted. "Dunno exactly why, but this is where you come in."
"Yes. See, my Dad works on lots of projects and stuff, and I've gotten wind of one in particular that really interests me. However, the problem is that I can't get my Dad to tell me more about it, even though it isn't classified, and I can't get in there to find out for myself. So, I'm resorting to another solution."
"You want to break in?" Emily asked, bewildered, already guessing what Jake was suggesting. When Jake nodded, she added, "Whatever for? This project interests you that much?"
"I'm a very dedicated person." Jake said. "But I need you to break in for me."
Emily frowned at this. "Why me?" she asked.
"Because, I don't have the skills you do that are needed to pull it off." Jake replied. "It'll be simple. The project comes with a computer, all I'd need you to do is to pull off as much information as you can about the project, and it get it back to me."
"It does sound easy enough." Emily thought out loud, thinking the plan through. The facility wasn't a major one, so security was at a minimum. If she could get around the alarms and it's failsafes...
"But why should I do any of this for you?" Emily asked Jake, looking slightly suspicious.
"You don't." Jake said. "You could turn me in, if you wanted."
"I doubt I'd have the evidence to do that."
Emily thought it through again. This guy was a total stranger to her. How did she know that this wasn't some sort of trap, designed just to get her in trouble? There were some loose ends to Jake's explanation of the situation.
Emily hesitated for a moment. "I don't think so." she finally said, and started to walk off.
Jake had his retort ready. "I dare you." he said, almost humorously.
Emily froze, and her pride forced her to look at the proposal again. It did seem like it be a bit fun. Something straight out of an action movie. And she was confident that, given the right conditions, she could do it. But, still, something wasn't right about all of this.
"I can, on special occasions, turn down ordinary dares." Emily announced, and continued on her way.
"Then I double dare you."
Emily froze again, realizing that Jake figured her out in a hurry. With a sigh, she turned back around. "Then how can I refuse?" she replied.
