Fire: supreme (rank 3)
Lucas looked over at me as he asked “got the new high speed cameras we asked from the sponsors?”
I simply nodded as I set them around an empty lot. We weren’t filming today just doing a few camera tests as I went back to the van and got the equipment ready. I have to admit in terms of what I got to work with doing this little web series with Lucas was a million time better then editing the local news. I checked my monitors as I looked out and gave Lucas the thumbs up.
“Test one, distance, ready and go!”
Lucas suddenly flashed out a plume of fire in front of camera and ran across the field blazing a trail to camera five. I gave him another thumbs up as I asked “Ok triple plume, let me see how the cameras catch you.”
Lucas suddenly stomped on the ground, a geyser of fire flying into the air as he stepped over to camera twelve and slammed his palms down onto the floor causing fire to rain from the sky. He finally rolled over to camera three and spun his arms creating a circle of fire in the air.
“Ok Lucas, flare blitz!”
All of the sudden the cameras were going crazy as Lucas began to dance and spin within the circle of cameras so quickly they almost couldn’t keep up.
Plumes of flames shot every which way. When he was done he walked over to the van as he poked his head inside.
“Come on let me see!”
I showed him the slowed down footage of his fire play. Before it would look like orange blurs but now every red and yellow could be seen with Lucas in
the middle displaying his ability to control the flames. Lucas smiled as he said “that’s some serious Michel Gondry shit right there. You’re a pro.”
Just as I was going to mention how there was still some editing to do we both heard it, the police sirens.
Energy Wave Surfing: superior (rank 2)
I slammed the pedal and drove as fast I could, one hand on the wheel the other holding a digital camcorder as he stuck his head out the window. In front of me standing on a disc of fire that billowed smoke was Lucas whose eyes were fixated on the police car.
“Drive faster damn it Nate! You’re missing me do some sick tricks!” Using his floating flame disc like a skateboard Lucas grinded on the edges of rooftops, leaving smoldering bits of concrete behind as Nate kept trying to avoid the traffic in his way.
I tapped the Bluetooth headset back into place as he said “you’re going too fast man! You need to slow down!”
Lucas laughed as he said “ok, get this shit as a quote. So long as the Bonfire burns criminals better fear the light.” Afterwards Lucas blasted off ahead and said “just make it to the crime scene Nate, we’ll get some good shots there.”
I pulled back into the car and grabbed the wheel with both hands again.
“Damn I wonder what we’re going to see there.” I muttered to myself.

When I finally drove up to the small crowd Lucas was already surrounded by a group of para military thugs. They held out their goofy looking stick tazers that crackled with electricity as Lucas shot his arms out to his sides, engulfing them in flames as he fired out a column of fire at one of the goons in front of him, setting him ablaze as he ran around almost comically.
“Who’s next?” Lucas stepped backwards as two guys came running at him, tazers held high above their head.
“How about a gift friends?” Lucas formed a ball of fire in his hand and rolled backwards. The ball of fire sat suspended in the air till the two thugs tried to walk past it. All of the sudden it exploded with radiant fire that shot them across the streets on both sides.
Lucas looked at the remaining thugs as he yelled out “see I don’t think you guys understand. I’m not the same guy I use to be. I’m not someone to fuck with but I’m still nice. So I’ll give the rest of you a chance to back the fuck down or else!” Lucas held his hands out as fire came from the ground and surrounded his body. He looked like he was wearing an armor of fire as he leapt up, forming the floating disc of flames underneath his flames and flew towards the thugs.
They all started to run as the crowd cheered. Checking my cellphone I noticed something on twitter. #bonfire was trending.
