What does it mean? Snippet from Super Starrella for #WeWriWa

Welcome to another Sunday with Weekend Writing Warriors. Here, writers in different genres showcase their stories with 8-10 sentences. Join the fun and read our snippets.
I’ve been giving you a glimpse into Estelle’s secret life as Super Starrella. Starrella’s winged mare, Rockette, was rescued by a large cat. You can read last week’s snippet here: http://auroraspringer.blogspot.com/2016/06/a-moving-shadow-snippet-from-super.html
Last week, a masked man in black appeared. Here is the last line: “Toby!” Starrella cried. “What the heck is going on?”

She stepped closer, holding out her hand to show the small flame rising from her palm.
His eyes glinted in the light and he drawled, “Super Starrella’s firepower! Great, we’ll need you for the mantis attack.”
“No, not the mantises.” She waved a hand at him and pointed back at herself, “You, me, and these silly costumes? What does it all mean?”
“Didn’t they tell you at the Clinic?”
She raised her eyebrows, “I was shown how to change the colors of my nanosuit. Cute, but doesn’t explain anything. Rockette told me more than Dr. Netta did.”

I may give you one more snippet, but soon I’ll move onto the sequel, Starrella Falls.

  1. She learned to change the jumpsuit colors? Useful. Not as useful as self defense, she's right.

    1. That Dr. Netta is not friendly! Luckily Estelle doesn't seem to need lessons in self defense.

    1. Yes, but Estelle did not learn much, as she says. Of course she overheard Toby's voice, so she is not surprised to find him in the nanosuit.

  4. So, not a single clue? No woder she is not wanting to play nice.

    1. Let's say there was a misunderstanding, compounded by Dr. Netta's dislike for supers.

  9. This sounds like a fun story, and it speaks volumes when a winged horse is more informative than a doctor :)

  10. The clinic sure didn't bother to prepare her very well!

  11. You're such a tease! But in a good way. Glad you're giving us a little more before moving on.

  12. It seems irresponsible to send a fledgling superhero out with no instructions!

    1. It was a rushed job, and she was glad to leave the place.

  13. Hmm. I'd hate to be a superhero with no instructions. It makes you wonder what happened at the clinic.

    1. They didn't know if she would gain superpowers. The activation doesn't always work.

      Delete
  14. Very intriguing. Love the fact that she was obviously tutored by her wonged-horse.

    1. Yes, the horse can speak to the other animals.

  15. The need to color coordinate is SO important but so is the truth at this point! She needs to hear it and soon!

    1. The truth comes slowly, after interruptions.

  16. I wondered why she didn't seem to know much...either they screwed up at the clinic or something else is going on here...dum de dum dum (<=Ominous music). Interesting snippet!

    1. A little screw up and she's too obstinate to return to the awful Clinic when she's supposed to.

      Delete
  17. Hey, if she could change her jumpsuit, she could develop urban camouflage. Great snippet, Aurora. :)

    1. Mostly it's camouflage for flying at night, but she likes being able to wear different colors.

      Delete
  18. Sounds like she didn't get the instructions she needs.

  19. I hope she's not in over her head. :-)

  20. a chameleon kind of jumpsuit? Interesting ... like the first sentence, too.

  21. Love the last lines! Leave it to the Clinic to only share the parlor tricks. LOL
