Ronan stared back blinking slowly as the young Terran refused to back down, such gall from what seemed to be a powerless species was almost impressive. Almost.
He lowered his hammer, the head of the weapon scuffing the ground, and nodded. “Very well. You, Theodore Altman, stand as the representative for the Terran Planet known as Earth. As representative you shall answer all questions put to you of this planet and it’s inhabitants and should you fail or if the Earth is deemed a threat it shall be detained to be judged by the Supreme Intelligence if it is then decided the planet is too much of a threat it shall then be destroyed.”
Teddy nodded, “I…I understand.” Watching Ronan lower his hammer, Teddy said, “what questions do you need answered?”
Ronan turned as one stepped forward to him eyes narrowing he raised his hammer and pointed towards the young man with it. “You?” He replied stepping further down from the ship and closer to the one said to be called Altman soon coming to a stop and standing in front of Theodore.
"You, youngling, would step forth as representative for the Terran Planet, Earth, as it is judged if it is a threat to the Kree Empire?”
Teddy stood tall, looking Ronan in the eye, “the Terran Planet is my home, those I care for are here. I would die to protect those I love. There are good people here, and I would give my life for all of them.”
Planet: Earth. Species: Terran. Status: To be judged.
"Who of this planet would come forth for it as it is to be looked upon by the eyes of the Kree Empire and be judged."
Teddy looked at the alien Kree, god, did he really come from these people? Standing in front of him, Teddy said, “I’m Theodore Altman of Earth.” Yeah, he wasn’t about to tell this guy who he really was.
I miss Billy.
Loki sat on the edge of a building in New York. Black nails playing with his short hair as he picked up the soda he had. Using the bendy straw to take a sip as he looked out across the city. He hadn’t been back here since he had gone away. Disappeared like he did from time to time to settle things in the universe, except now he had guidelines and goals. A clear plan even though he’d… disappeared.
Hidden and gone from the Young Avengers lives. They’d all be better off without him. He picked up the hot dog that had been sitting on the stone bannister of the roof with him and took a bite. New York City had the best hot dogs in all the Nine.
To the point that they could distract him. He admitted as he felt someone walk up behind him that it wasn’t that bad. He had been expecting one of his companions to find him while he was in the city eventually.
Teddy had been out on his own, clearing his head and enjoying the night air. Having a day out on his own was a nice changed compared to what he had been feeling.
He was depressed, and needed to get his head around everything, climbing up to the top of the building where he and Billy shared an apartment he was stunned to see who was up there, “Loki??”
