When a Bunch of People, Including Raymond, Got Superpowers
by Luc Reid
There was this bunch of people, like maybe fifteen or sixteen of them, who just out of the blue suddenly got the superpowers of their choice. Raymond chose the power to make really delicious food that's also good for you.
Some of the other new superpeople laughed when they heard his choice. "Ha ha!" said Laser Eyes Guy. "Mom power!"
"That's not what your mom said her power was last night," said Strength of a Million Strong People Man, just before Laser Eyes Guy fried him to a crisp. Strength is not the same as constitution, as any D&D player can tell you.
"Steve!" cried Laser Eyes Guy in dismay. Then, while weeping, he accidentally melted and then blew up his own car.
By the way, this is before they all came up with their cool supernames. Well, not all of them. Raymond just stuck with "Raymond."
Anyway, Raymond threw a party and made some really delicious food that's also good for you. Only three people came (including Laser Eyes Guy's mom, who truth be told really was a bit of a floozy) but all three of them had their socks knocked off by Raymond's spinach bean bites and strawberry meringue bread. They also felt so great after leaving that they went out and had more fun. They additionally told all kinds of people about Raymond's amazing party.
Raymond's next party was a bit more crowded. There were fourteen people there. He joked that he'd have to stop throwing parties because his apartment was too small. The next day, one of those fourteen people, who owned a business that made blades for meat slicers, paid for Raymond to have a much bigger apartment just so he could keep throwing parties. This was happening just as Raymond's muffin cart business was really taking off.
