After the fiasco of my last job, I decided I needed a bit of practical experience with the natural world. I already work in a flower shop, so it wasn't hard to get some reading material on plantlife, but sitting through all those books was just so boring. Let me tell you, reading through every variation of the bajillion plants around New York alone is a real slog, and the worst part is, most of them are pretty much the same damn plant! I could feel my brain leaking out my ears by the end, and honestly, the only parts I really picked up were the useful stuff, some edible plants, some I could use for kindling, that sort of thing. Honestly, who gets this wrapped up in names, anyway? Nature isn't some hard construct you can put a label on, it changes all the time! Stupid humans, and their stupid scientific method...
Where was I? Oh, right, after that I did a bit of research on animals, mostly stuff I could grab from a local library. Doubt it'll help me much beyond recognising what features these animals should not have, though I like to think I could recognise most of those on my own, but there were a few bits and pieces I probably would've had an issue finding out. Or at least I would've before my new power kicked in. Yeah, I can sense people nervous systems or something like that in an area around me, about twenty five feet, if my measurements are right. Not just that, I can smell like a damn bloodhound, which is not fun in New York. This is definitely the sorta thing that'll keep me alive though, after what happened with the last job, being able to sense anything hiding near me will be a real lifesaver.
New power, nothing flashy this time. I was messing around with my baton, hoping for something as cool as last time, but no such luck. Instead of something on the level of a bolt of lightning appearing out of nowhere, or the winds bending to my will, or plants rising from the ground at my command, I can now open locks with a tap. I'm actually pretty ok with this, nothing incredible, but it's the sorta thing to come in handy, and it doesn't leave me feeling like I just tried to solve five hard algebra equations in ten minutes when I use it too much, like with the more impressive stuff.
In other news, I've been getting the hang of controlling plant growth, to the point where I can keep it going without having to focus on it, which is gonna be a great card up my sleeve the next time I have to run away while something horrific tries to eat me. Seriously, three times cannot be a coincidence, and why is it always basements!?! What is it with man eating monsters and basements, do they go for cheap on AirBNB or something? Maybe I could ask the next time one of them tries to eat me? Sure would beat the kinda rent I have to pay living in New York, and who knows? Maybe I'll be able to save up some money, get a loan for a car or something? Ain't that the dream, even with all this.
I got back fine from the job, my boss at the flower shop didn't even bat an eye when I showed up like nothing had happened and got back to work. Actually being able to pay for stuff is great, even if it's not the line of work I imagined myself getting into. Ah well, if I keep going on jobs I'll move on up in the world eventually. Right on up to where I belong. In other news, my new powers from the latest job have kicked in, and it's a pretty sweet upgrade on what I could already do. Normally when I tap into natural forces, it's pretty much just me finding them and dragging them out to amp up something that would already happen naturally, like making plants grow faster, or causing a spontaneous lightning bolt, but now I can make it more... controlled. It loses all that oomph it has when I just chuck power around, but it's not as taxing, and the best part, I can pick stuff up with it. Nothing like making the wind blow some papers you need from a desk to your hand, or having the flowers in a flower vase get you your morning coffee. Still working on those pesky 'range limitations', but I'm finally seeing some real return on the whole 'freak and social pariah' thing. Thanks for that, Dad.
As a side note, I'm gonna have to be careful to put things back the way they were, I can only blame moles for shifted earth so many times before people start getting suspicious.
