"Sundew, an interesting name," Duality says absently while clearly attempting to hide her searching something on her other mobile. "A plant Epic, hmm? What do you want?"
"I want to make an offer." Sundew pauses for effect.
Just as this 'Duality' was going to say something, Sundew said "I will provide you with a reliable food source. Not your weird, whatever you do. And no. I will not poison your epics or your troops. Speaking of troops, why don't you get your flamethrowers out of my face. My plants will take more lives if you burn my plants."
Sundew glanced at another soldier that was inside a man-trap. Sundew released the person.
Idiots. The ah-he-ee is full of sparking idiots.
Monument sat in a nice gamer chair in front of a monitor. A laptop lay on the right of the monitor and his mobile on the left. Monument had a tablet in a drawer if he needed it as well as a imager on the opposite side of the room. The room was about as large as the average family room (pre-calamity), and it also had a couch positioned in front of the imager. Of course, monument didn't necessarily need all this tech, as it was his power to watch.
Monument watched the entire city through his monuments. although pretty obvious, the monuments' area covered nearly all the land. If Monument had to guess how much area the monuments covered, he would say around 75%. The correct answer was 74.382% of AHE land was watched by monument.
2 Libertas, 2 Limitas, 1 Crono, 4 Velocitas, 3 Ferocitas, 2 Paradox, 3 Omniderectus, 2 Enhancitas, 2 Enduritas, 1 Shadowas, 2 Reposte, and 1 Momentas,
To say that Monument was but a simple man was a very wrong lie. To say that Monument was but a pawn for the AHE would be also a lie. Monument was the primary surveillance in this area. It was his job to make sure everything in AHE's territory was in check. That included epics.
It couldn't be a coincidence that the AHE would get a Fiery hellish epic who reminded him of Nighthound. Nighthound was possibly the most creepy epic to ever exist, and then the next day, discover that Stormfeather, yes, that was actually his name, had died. To be honest, Monument never really liked the lightning shooting idiot crow epic. However, when they had sent their best epic, Warlock as well as Skytaker to the plant epic, which was called Sundew, it had seemed as if the Plant epic had chickened out and gone 'diplomatic.'
Monument's best guess would be that the plant epic was waiting for the right opportunity to strike.
She could easily poison her food exchange and kill many people.
Or, she could kill everyone and feed them to a sundew.
The second thing that tipped Monument off was the arrogance from the weird plant epic. He had guessed that the plant epic was simply getting Warlock's and Skytaker's name wrong on purpose. That, combined with the fact the Plant Epic killed Stormfeather singlehanded would mean she was a High Epic. They were walking right into a trap. Or maybe eating right into a trap. Whatever.
Monument would not be taking any risks as head of surveillance.
First, he typed up on the AHE's official files 'SUNDEW: possible HIGH EPIC. known powers: Growing Plants, Commanding plants telepathically, surpressing plant requirements, evolving plants. POSSIBLE ENEMY. WATCH FOR POISONED FOOD. '
After that, he typed a message to Duality. Possible high epic. seems to want to kill us. wait. I will ask a few questions first.
He called Warlock's stolen mobile. "Hello. This is the head of surveillance. I would like to ask a few questions first. How old are you."
Monument quickly heard a reply. "30"
God. Thank goodness this wasn't another teenage idiot epic. While teenagers tended to act rash, they also thought that they were invincible and had very wavering loyalties. Teens didn't have the discipline adults had.
"You may now continue your conversation with The Duality."
Monument would definitely be keeping a eye on this new epic.
