He returned home. He had the same dreams, he was running and all he had to do to save his father was to walk a single step and prevent him from leaving home, but just before he could he fell. He awoke wondering what the dreams meant but on seeing his clock he realized that he was late for work. It didn’t take him much time to reach his office and in fact, due to his new powers he was faster than ever. Even tough he knew that he shouldn’t be so selfish in using his powers, there were also some perks that he could enjoy besides being a superhero. He sat down on his chair, behind the huge pile of books on his table. He hadn’t been doing his work properly for the past few days and so he got on to do it. He had to copy a certain document entitled “Cuts In The Company”. Curiosity overcame him. He picked it up and was horrified to see that there was no name as John Smith at all. He believed that since this was the company’s records, all the employees’ names should be present. He continued to do his work, but managed to somehow lock himself in the copy room. Luckily for him, the ventilation system was very bad in the copy room and could be used for a two way communication device. But before he could say anything, he heard voices. He began to listen even more intently when he heard that it was, in fact, Johan’s voice, along with someone who he could barely remember.
