Chapter One: A Change For The Better?
David Falcone was a big fan of the work that Oscorp was doing for New York City. When he wasn't at school, or working at the Daily Bugle with one of his other closest friends, he was always eager to see what was going on at Oscorp. Speaking of friends, he and his fellow science nerd was at a building where Oscorp showed off their products to the public. He and his buddy Peter Parker were friends with the son of the president, Harry. Whenever Norman (the president of Oscorp and Harry's father) shows off a big and new discovery or product, it could always be a safe bet that David and Peter would be at the grand showing, which brings them to Oscorp's showing room today.
David managed to drag along one of his friends, a young brunette named Alex Russo, whom he has known since preschool. David wanted to be more than friends with Alex, but his fear of rejection and the fear of losing a close in her as well made the young man keep his crush under a layer of friendship until the time is right for him to reveal his feelings. David quickly changed the focus in his mind, as he looked and scanned the area for Peter, and saw that he was talking to a young red head, who David realized was Mary Jane Watson. David smiled, and walked over to meet and greet Peter.
"Well, well, here he is. And I thought that you were dead." David said, getting Pete's attention.
"Sorry, man, I haven't seen you in a while." Peter said. "I wanted to hang out with you, but duty calls."
"Yeah, you are busy taking pictures for the Bugle, and being Spiderman." David said. Peter laughed, and playfully punched him in the arm. David looked over, and saw a girl David's age talking to Mary Jane.
"Who's that? Your girlfriend?" Peter asked. David looked to where Peter was pointing, and looked back at him, blushing really badly.
"No, that's only my friend." David said quickly. "We're only friends, promise!"
"Yeah, sure." Peter said. "How are you doing with her then?"
"How are you doing with Mary Jane?" David asked.
"Now that is low." Peter said. He and Mary Jane were on whole different level than David and Alex were. They were friends, while Peter and Mary Jane were dating casually. He really wished that he had the nerve to ask out Alex, but he didn't.
"How about this," Peter said, getting David's attention, "if I can agree to get Mary Jane to go on a double date, you have to ask Alex out."
"Deal." David said, knowing that this is going to be a real pain, because he is as nervous as anyone could be when asking out a pretty girl.
"Hey guys." Harry said, coming towards the two.
"The fortunate son joins the commoners, greeting Harry." David joked with his friend.
"Look, my dad and I have something special to show both of you." Harry said.
"What is it?" David asked him.
"Come and see." Harry said walking away. Peter and David exchanged a curious look, and then followed their friend.
Harry lead the two to a small area in which they saw some scientists working with a laser that was pointed at a small object on a table. This was going to be interesting to say the least. Norman walked up to them smiling.
"Glad that you can join us." He said with a smile. "If you can put these on, we can begin."
"What's going on?" Peter asked.
"Well, we are testing an energy beam that can steal DNA from an energy source that is really tiny." Norman said.
"Well, what is on that table then?" David asked.
"A Wolf hair." Norman said.
"This is going to be bright, so keep these on until it is done." Harry said.
"Okay, go for it." Norman said, signaling to the guy to start the machine.
The scientist nodded, and started the machine. The laser fired a bright green beam at the slide of the hair that was sitting on the table.
This is amazing. David thought as he watched in amazement.
As he looked on, he heard Norman scream out, "What in the hell is the matter!"
"I have no idea! The laser was stable when we tested it earlier!" The scientist manning the laser answered. David raised up his goggles to see what was going on, and just as he took a step further...
"David! Look out!" Peter screamed. David turned around, and before he knew it, the laser hit him dead on, and knocked him into the wall, hard.
David? David, hang on!" Peter yelled as Harry went to check on his friend. David laid on the floor, lifeless.
David felt as though his head was going to split open. He heard random voices that sounded like Peter and Harry, but he was so out of it, that he could barely see who was standing over him. As his vision cleared, he saw the concerned faces of his friends.
"David, are you alright?" Peter asked, helping him up.
"Man, what happened?" David asked weakly.
"You were tossed into the wall caused by that laser." Harry answered. "Are you alright?"
"I'm fine, just knocked out for a little bit." David answered, getting to his feet. "Man, I knew this wasn't going to be a boring trip after all."
"Come on man, after that bump, you need to rest at home." Peter said. Harry told his father what was going on, and he joined Peter in taking all of his friends home.
Of course, the story doesn't end here...
