A/N: This is the sequel to "One Hell of a Knockout" so I recommend that you read that first otherwise this one won't make sense, to those who haven't read it yet anyway. But to those who have read it, welcome back! Let me start off by saying how much I loved Kick Ass 2. The acting, the violence, the action sequences, the character development, everything was amazing and it's definitely one of the best movies I've seen this year. Another thing I want to add is that I will be using song lyrics for each chapter because I love music.
Disclaimer: I only own Angelina, Lacey, and Ava.
"Step back, gonna come at you fast
I'm drivin' out of control, I'm gettin' ready to crash
Won't stop shakin' up what I can
I serve it up in a shot, so suck it down like a man
So baby, yes, I know what I am
And no I don't give a damn and you'll be lovin it
Some days I'm a super bitch
Up to my old tricks but it won't last forever
Next day I'm your super girl
Out to save the world and it keeps gettin' better." - Keeps Gettin' Better, Christina Aguilera
Let's be honest, we all did it when we were kids. We donned capes, masks, weapons, you name it. We wanted to be the next Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, etc. But in reality, no one had the balls to actually put on a mask, slip on a costume, and help people. The only "heroes" we had were the cops and no offence, our system was pretty fucked up. The cops were either paid by Frank D'Amico to leave the bad guys alone or, the bad guys would get away with almost everything because no one ratted them out.
That all changed when Dave and I became part of the superhero scene. Our bravery inspired a new wave of self-made masked crusaders. Whenever I turned on the news now, there were more and more new superheroes. And almost every single one of them would say that they became a superhero because of Dave, Mindy, and I.
Nowadays though, I was living my life like a 'normal' 19-year-old girl. I was now a sophmore in college and majoring in Criminal Justice. I lived in an apartment with my friends Lacey and Ava, whom I'd met in my freshmen year. We also worked part time at Atomic Comics.
By day they were known as Lacey and Ava, but by night they were known as Titania and Siren. And they'd pretty much beg me to go with them whenever they were about to go on patrol. They nearly had heart attacks when I told them I was Knockout. Not only were they trying to convince me to return to the superhero scene but Dave was too. I still kept in touch with him, Mindy, Todd and Marty as well.
"Angelina come on, you can't tell me that you don't miss being a superhero," Dave's voice barked into the receiver.
I sighed and held my iPhone against my ear as I walked around the apartment. I flopped down on the couch and bit my lip. "Not one bit," I lied.
"You're a terrible liar."
"Dave, I'm in college and trying to live a normal life. And guess what? It's going fan-fucking-tastic. I couldn't be happier."
"Bullshit, do you still have your costume?"
"Okay then riddle me this, why do you still have it? If you were really trying to start a new life you would've gotten rid of it…"
I held the phone away from my ear sighed again, he had a point. I did miss being a superhero. Whether I liked it or not, Knockout was who I was and I knew I couldn't stop being her forever. "Alright you win, where and when do you and Mindy wanna meet?"
"Sweet! Meet us at the school in twenty minutes, I'll see you then. Oh and bring Lacey and Ava too."
"Will do!" I hung up the phone and Ava walked in. "Who was that?" She asked.
I walked past her and grabbed my gray sweater before putting on some shoes. "It was Dave."
She raised a brow. "What did he want?"
"Well Ava, you'll be happy to know that he convinced me to come out of retirement."
She screamed and hugged me tightly. "It's about fucking time!"
I threw on some shoes and grabbed my keys. "Come on, Lacey gets out of class in a few minutes so let's grab her and then meet up with Dave and Mindy."
"So what's going on?" Lacey asked as I drove the three of us across the city. "I'm no longer retired and we're on our way to meet up with Mindy and Dave. Mindy's more than likely gonna train us and I'm warning you two right now. She doesn't hold back when it comes to fighting so don't be bitching and moaning when we start training ok?" I replied, not taking my eyes off the road.
"Great, I'm about to get my ass kicked by a fifteen year old," Lacey muttered.
I pulled up at the school and saw that Dave and Mindy were already there. They got in the back seat and I sped off. "I want all of us to team up, Mindy and I could be like Batman and Robin and you, Lacey, and Ava could be like Batgirl, Wonder Woman, and Black Widow," Dave grinned.
"Nobody wants to be Robin," Mindy retorted, rolling her eyes.
"What's wrong with Robin? Weren't you like Big Daddy's Robin?"
"Okay, Robin wishes he was me."
"Yeah, and I can't take Batgirl seriously after seeing that awful 'Batman & Robin' movie," I chimed in.
"What I'm trying to say is that we should assemble our own team, like the fearless five," Dave replied.
Dave managed to convince Mindy to train us, under the condition that we'd do anything she said. We trained pretty hard in those first three weeks and Mindy beat the shit out of all of us. I was so glad that Lacey and Ava were tough as nails and kept their word because I don't think I could deal with anymore whiny bitches *cough* Dave *cough*
Although those three weeks were a living hell for me, I was also thankful because everything I learned in gymnastics and taekwondo seemed to be coming back to me. After I got off work, I got a text from Mindy, "It's time for you and Dave's first field test, meet me in the alley by Atomic Comics."
I replied, "Will do!"
I walked down the alleyway and saw that Dave and Mindy were already there. I couldn't help but laugh my ass off once I saw that Dave was dressed like a pimp. Mindy smirked at me. "I wouldn't be laughing if I were you. Now put this on." She handed me a couple shopping bags and I changed behind one the dumpsters.
"I'm the whitest pimp ever," Dave huffed as we walked down the sidewalk. I glared at him. "Hey, at least you're fully clothed!" The outfit that Mindy had given me was a slutty cop costume. I had on a dark blue halter crop top (which had my girls propped up and on parade), a black and blue cop hat, a black waist cincher, black boyshorts, black thigh-high fishnet stockings, and black knee high stiletto boots with buckle straps.
"That's the idea. Take the next right, comes out on Flatbush," Mindy said, into our earpieces.
"Are you sure we should be doing this without our gear?" Dave asked as we continued walking, passing a few thugs. They wolf-whistled at me and it took everything I had not to turn around and open a can of whoop-ass on them.
"That's the point; Kick-Ass and Knockout aren't costumes. They're who you two really are. Dave Lizewski and Angelina Thorne are the masks."
"Well my mask is about to get his teeth kicked in," Dave retorted.
"And mine's about to get gang raped," I mumbled as we walked down an alleyway.
"Hey queerbait, slut. Where you two going with those bags?" The leader asked.
"Tell him you're on your way to fuck his mother with a twelve inch strap-on," Mindy ordered.
Dave ignored her. "We're just taking a walk," he said nervously and then spoke into his earpiece, "That really isn't what I do, I just call the cops."
"Who you talking to man?!" One of them barked.
I knew that what I was about to do was going to earn me a lecture from Dave later, but I just couldn't help myself. "Yo mama! And she's really excited because we're on our way to fuck her with a twelve inch strap-on and a dildo!" I shot back.
"What was that, skank?! Oh, and the service around here sucks." He ripped out my earpiece and then Dave's. "Now you and the faggot better give me the bags before I make you suck my fat cock!" The leader sneered.
They were all crowded around us by now and Dave held his bags out. The leader reached for them only to get punched in the face by Dave. I performed a three sixty back kick on one of them before giving another one a good blow to the ribs. We were putting up a good fight against these pricks for a while until one of them picked up a lead pipe and hit us both in the back with it. I fell to the ground and groaned in pain "That was a fucking cheap shot you pussy!"
He just chuckled and they then proceeded to beat the shit out of us. I couldn't believe that I had gone through training aka Hell on Earth for three weeks just to get my ass handed to me again. The leader picked up a knife and Mindy was standing right behind him, in her costume. "You ready to die, faggot?" He smirked, looking at Dave.
"You know, all the homophobic shit makes you sound super gay," Mindy said sarcastically and then lunged at him. Dave and I watched as she began to beat up all four guys at once. That's what I loved about Mindy; she never backed down no matter what.
She plucked her sword out of the leader's foot and glared at him. "If I ever catch you robbing again shit burger, I'm gonna go Saudi Arabia on your ass and cut your hand off. Promise me you're done with your life of crime?"
"I promise," he nodded. He quickly reached for a knife nearby only to have his hand cut off. He started screaming in pain. "Pants on fire," Mindy mumbled and looked at us, "What'd you guys think?"
"I think you almost got us killed!" Dave yelled.
"She just saved our lives you ass!" I growled, hitting him in the chest.
"No! What'd you think of my line? Pants on Fire, I wrote a whole bunch of them."
I heard sirens nearby and a couple cops ran down the alley. "Run!" Dave barked.
"We'll tell them you saved us! Go!" I said quickly. She jumped over the fence and ran off as Dave and I put our hands in the air. Thankfully for us, the cops bought our story and told us we were free to go.
Once I got home, I peeled off my costume and threw it away, thanking God that Lacey and Ava were still at work. The last thing I needed right now was them ridiculing me.
I put on some shorts and a tank top and cleaned myself up. Then I took my laptop out of my bag. I ordered a new costume since my old one was battered and torn up from my last fight. What I needed right now was a nice long nap. I got into bed and smirked. 'Damn, if feels so good to be back' I thought before falling asleep.
A/N: I hope you all enjoyed the first chapter! Oh, and links to what Lacey and Ava look like along with their costumes are on my profile. Tell me what you think! :D
