Maximus looked out the glass window at the heavy rain falling all over that side of Splatty. Great time he picked to go back to his home planet alone. Minimus was probably so comfortable at the lair in space, away from the rain.
"If I wasn't a super villain I would be feeling sorry for all the poor souls that got caught in the rain." It started raining so suddenly, without a warning, he was very lucky to be inside when it began.
He looked out the window again, willing the rain to stop in a futile effort. Then he saw someone, some kid running in the rain, up the stairs to the entrance, leaning on the closed door and taking shelter there.
Maximus went over there and opened the door, the boy falling back unexpectedly. "Someone lived here?"
"This is my vacation home, who said you could come into my property?"
"Um... I come here sometimes..." The boy admitted.
"Is that why the fruit trees are nearly empty?" Maximus accused.
The boy didn't reply directly, instead said, "sorry about that."
"I am a super villain; you should know the great Maximus IQ." Maximus tried to sound threatening.
The boy looked up for the first time, "I'm not afraid of anything. I thought this place was deserted, that's no excuse, but I'm not scared, no even if super villains or galactic guardians. I'll repay you, somehow."
Maximus considered showing the boy some respect with his light saber, but instead asked. "How would you do that? You're just a street cat."
"I'll figure something out," the boy pouted, but looked determined.
Maximus thought about the situation, the kid had guts; that much he knew for sure. "Your name?"
"You'll be one of my minions from this day on."
