It was dark, and Pepper was walking down a street in LEGO Island city, and it was raining, hard! Pepper pulled his hood up over head a bit more, to attempt to get out of the rain. Abruptly, lightning struck a nearby field and from the flash, Pepper could make out the outline of a person. The lightning flashed again, and he saw that between flashes the figure seemed to get closer and closer.
