In the near future, Chandler Smithson is sprinting through the suburbs out of Chicago, IL. It is in the middle of a rainy night and pitch black outside. He finds a bicycle chained to a stop sign, rips it from the chains, and starts to ride it.
Chandler stands in the house, breathing heavily. The bedroom door blasts in. Chandler says, "What do you want with me?" Noh limps in with his metal cane while Pyro walks in and holds out his hand to use his power, knowing Chandler would survive the flames. He finds that he is unable to do anything. He yells, "What did you do?!" At Noh's order he pulls out a handgun, aims at Chandler’s head, hesitates, and pulls the trigger!
Chandler flinches and closes his eyes. When he opens them, time has stopped, the bullet lingering inches away from his head. Noh walks over to him and says, "You think you're smarter than me? You think I haven't caught on to your plan? The fact you're working with Pyro?"
"All I want is to be safe."
"Chandler, you'll always be safe. Why do you think I haven't killed you yet? I need you. Sure, pyrokinesis is great in an apprentice, but immortality? You have ten times Pyro's potential and one hundred times as long to get the hang of being a leader. You will be safe forever if you just come with me." There is a moment of awkward silence. Noh asks, "Or would you prefer I just killed the girl?"
"Let Elizabeth go."
Pyro starts screaming, "No! Chandler, what about our plan? Noh is evil incarnate!" He turns to Noh and yells, "Where is my power?!" Noh answers, "I took it."
Pyro yells, "You treated me like a son! You said I would be the new leader! You said I could replace you! I thought I was your apprentice!"
Noh calmy says, "You're fired," before thrusting the bullet through Pyro's skull. Pyro's body falls to the ground, and a pool of blood forms around his head.
The master and his new apprentice exit the house. Noh demolishes the house. The master and the apprentice teleport away.
