As the sun set a slender woman in a white and gray suit and red mask, with a familiar red spider in the middle sits on the ledge of a rather iconic landmark. She wasn’t sure what happened. Yesterday she was home, fighting for survival with a twisted burned-out skyline behind her. The next moment she was here, in what she was sure New York looked like before she was even born. Was she in the past? Or was this a whole other world? That portal, that odd rift that she just had to check out...what has she done?
Now she was separated from her world, her friends, her mentor. She left them to fend for themselves in that wasteland while she is stuck here with no idea how to get back. If there even was a way to get back.
“Oh jeez, Why did I have to touch that thing? Why didn’t I just leave it be? Ben told me to be careful, told me to watch for traps. This whole mess could have been a Goblin thing and I walked right into it like a moron…” Cindi signed as she leaned back against a window.
“Maybe I am a moron after all….” She said to herself. She spent years trying to prove to herself, to Ben to the other survivors that she wasn’t just some fluke of nature that was accidentally blessed with powers. That she can indeed help others. But now, she wasn't sure if she could even help herself…

It was so close Kaine could feel it. His body would be fixed soon by the cellular degeneration. The ugliness of his scars would go away, and for one of those rare moments, Kaine was in a good mood. Kaine knew the pain and agony that had come with the cellular degeneration, but at least he’d be able to have some peace. No one should ever suffer that way as he did. He took a web sling line around New York City as he didn’t mind it. It was rather peaceful at the sound of busy people going back to their work. He had donned on his red Scarlet Spider suit as the humans had no idea that a web-slinger was above them. Sometimes it felt good just to come out and clear his head.
So he’d be used to the team-ups once more. Kaine soon saw the empire state building as it was all lit up in fancy fashion. Kaine felt his spidey sense go off. This one was different, as he couldn’t help but wonder what was going on here. Was there another spider? He had to go and get a better look. He came and took a swing to the right to readjust his angle before landing on one of the gargoyles. He didn’t see anyone at first, but he relied on his spidey sense to figure it out. Then he heard someone talking nearby like they were lost. He knew how that feeling was.
“Is everything alright? I thought I heard you say something about being lost. Don’t worry. I am not a bad guy… My spidey sense has been going off, like a compass.” Kaine said as he saw his red and black suit stood out to her web-like suit. He almost got swept off his feet or hit like a ton of bricks. He thought she was beautiful with that black hair and a long way down to her legs. He tried to get his bearings back, but even he couldn’t move from his spot. “M-My N-Name is S-Scarlet Spider.” He said as he almost struggled with a simple line. He probably looked like an idiot.
Under that mask of his, his cheeks had turned bright red with embarrassment. That was when he remembered. He could not talk to girls and he got all nervous. "I don't think you are a moron. I remember my first time here, I felt very lost." Kaine said. He had no way to return home. His friends had all missed him. he had encountered at least two peters and his own. But he still had no idea what he was going to do with his life. Even that was a mystery besides being Scarlet Spider.
As Cindi sat there she could feel something in her head. At first, it felt like a sinus headache, the kind that creeps in behind your eye socket and feels like a drill. But it kept pounding harder and harder as the moment passed. She then realized what was happening! It was the same feeling she had when she first got her Spider-powers and sought out Ben Parker! A feeling she hasn't had in a long time. At least not until she approached that portal…does it mean there was another Spider close by? Getting to her feet Silk checked the area, but her silk sense wasn’t going off. So no danger, but the feeling was still there. Hearing a voice behind her, however, she nearly jumped out of her tights!
“YAH!” Behind her stood a tall rather muscular man in a red and black Spider outfit very similar to her own. With an almost identical Spider symbol on his chest. Clutching her chest Silk let out a ragged breath before grabbing hold of her knees.
“Don’t sneak up on me like that. I almost fell off the building…” Standing up she walked around in a circle for a moment taking in deep breaths. “..whew….” Looking over at him she nodded.
“Hey. Nice to meet you…wait? Are you a Spider? So you’re the one that I've been sensing? Wow…And here I thought it was only Uncle Ben that I could pick up on. Guess it works for other Spiders too.” Cindi asked wondering if he had the same power as well. But that question will have to wait.
“Uh, Listen. Not to sound harsh or anything but where the hell am I? And please don’t say New York because that’s sort of a given. I mean. Where. Am. I?”

“I’m sorry, so sorry!” Kaine blurted out. He didn’t mean to scare her. He had blurted out the sentence so fast that he was about to reach a hand to grab her before she fell off the huge building. It was lit up with bright lights so the night sky, could not be seen. However, with all the light pollution, there were no stars. Though Silk managed to fix herself as he was relieved. He knew his face, and his form could look intimidating and scary. As he didn’t want to scare anybody tonight. He knew if he lifted the mask she would surely run away with all those scars of his. Otto promised to fix him, of his cellular degeneration. He could only hope that it was going to be soon, so some of them would fade. He accepted the idea that they would more than likely stay.
“I was about to grab you before you fell. Being up this high is dangerous for anyone even spiders,” Kaine said. "But at least you caught yourself." Kaine said not even sure he'd be able to handle that fall. The Empire state building had a reputation for being a super tall building in New York. He wondered if it was just out of instinct or who knew what it was. At least it was better than being flung stuff at like a teddy bear or some of that chalk stuff. Kaine didn’t exactly have a way with women. He didn’t even get a date in his time.
“Yes, I am a spider just like you,” Kaine said. “Well, a clone of one anyways. It's complicated.” He said. He knew that part was going to be a long conversation here about how that happened. “Wait, you have an uncle Ben in your time?” Kaine said. He realized these multiverses were very confusing as he wondered what was going on here. He couldn’t help but wonder how many multiverses there were, and it was enough that he was going to be very confused, for that matter. He knew there were many Kaines from the sounds of it. He already heard of at least two from different dimensions.
Kaine paused as he sat in the crouched position of a spider as they usually took that form. Yes, they were in New York, but he was in a different dimension just like she was. “We’re in a different dimension. There are thousands of them from what I have gathered. I lived in New York too, with a team called the Web-Warriors that were full of Spider heroes, before I got sucked into one. Like you, I got confused and had no idea where I was. I ran into a few unfamiliar faces…” Kaine said, referring to a few of his encounters already. “And all I wanted to do was go home. Unfortunately, it looks like we’re stuck here. I know that’s not the news you wanted. This dimension seems different than the one that I was in. Like it’s eating itself out, it so unstable.” Kaine explained. “I’m no science nerd, and my brothers could probably do a better job of explaining it,” Kaine said, sometimes he felt not so smart, compared to Ben and Peter.
Silk stared at him as he spoke, he certainly does not have a problem with exposition. She just needed to sift through it all, So far she picked up on clone, portals, dimension, and something about a webbing team? Holding her hands up she made a shushing gesture.
“Okay, okay calm down there Red. I just..just need a moment here. So what you're saying is that I am in some other world now? This is obviously not my home since my New York is basically a burned-out parking lot. So I guess I didn’t go into the past like I first thought. But some ..some other world entirely…” Walking to the ledge of the building she looked down at all the bustling lights below.
“This is …this is bad so bad! I need to find a way home.” Looking back at him she seemed very concerned. “Wait, you know Uncle Ben? I mean by definition he is not my uncle per se. He sort of took me in when I first got my spider powers. Taught me how to use them. How to survive and protect people. I took up the mantle after he retired and he started working at the hospital. But I need to get back! He wasn’t well when I left and I…” She paused.
“..I got trapped here because…” Reaching up she pulled off her mask before taking a few ragged steps back and leaning against the wall behind her. “Because I was curious…. The first shiny thing to come my way and I end up who knows where….” Sliding down the wall to the ledge she held her head in her hands.

“I’m sorry I didn’t know…That world sounds pretty bad.” Kaine said as he frowned, he was certain that there were many worlds. Thousands that they existed or didn’t exist in he couldn’t think of it all. But he felt like he had to apologize about the world not being so nice to live in. Kaine couldn’t imagine the awful amount of pain that Silk had been through. Her own kind of pain. Were as Kaine had his own. But he still listened. That sounded about right from what he had tried to explain from his perspective. “Yes, that is right.” He said giving a soft nod as he remained in his crouched position. Kaine watched her walk on the building back and forth. He could hear the traffic from downtown as he wondered what it was like being in that. Probably dizzying, headache, nauseating lights of the horns honking and people screaming. It was something that was unwelcoming. But New York City was the place they were both stuck in.
“Well technically, there are two Bens, that I’m aware of in my dimension. One of Spider-Man’s family, and the other clone.” He spoke. “We kind of call each other brothers now, that we are on good terms.” Kaine said. He nodded, and he looked rather puzzled. Just as Cindi was. He had no idea if he could help them. It was just as confusing, just as lost. Just the wanting to go home was there. He was finding it hard to talk but at least it was a start to something. Friendship? Kaine didn't have very many friends. But he had started seeing some in Otto. He had made so many enemies, when he was working with the Jackal. Dearest dad. He better not see his face here. “Yeah we both need to get back I’ve been stuck here for a couple of months now. Unfortunately, I haven’t found any way to get back.” Kaine said knowing that was rather tough news to swallow as far as he was concerned. He was doubtful there was any easy way to get back.
“That is not your fault that it happened like that. It could’ve happened to anyone.” Kaine added. “Red? Kaine, my name is Kaine. You called me red earlier…I haven’t heard that in a while.” Kaine said knowing it was probably a reference to his Scarlet Spider suit from earlier. He had been an idiot for giving out his first name to a woman he barely met. But at least it was being called Scarlet Spider. He was not fond of the name. It took some getting used to. It was Ben’s name before things got all messed up.
“But I can help if it makes any difference help you if you want. I know we just met and all, but we already have two things in common: Lost in this world and as well as having spider powers. And we're both not flukes” Kaine said. “That is if you accept me as an alliance? Or friendship?” He offered.
As Cindi listened it became clear she was pretty much stuck where she was. Some entirely other dimension with no way home, if home even still exists. As this Kaine spoke about other Bens and other Spiders she nodded.
“So the whole Multiverse thing really does exist? That lunatic knew and no one believed him..” She said referring to her worlds Doctor Octopus. “He tried to tell everyone that there were other dimensions and everyone thought he was crazy. Drummed him out of the scientific world and such. There was some sort of accident that drove him over the edge and he created a weapon to get back at those he said were “inferior”. I never met the loon but Uncle Ben told me there was some sort of miscalculation and the weapon went off turning my world into an open-air trash dump…”
“All that happened before I was even born. Ever since then the world has been a harsh wasteland of irradiated animals and Goblin mutants. I guess in comparison this world is a cake walk…” Taking in a breath Cindi stood up and slipped her mask back on and looked over at Kaine.
“But dump or not I wanna get home, so I can’t just sit here and sulk. I may as well help some people in the meantime while I look for a way back.” Taking a step forward she held her hand out.
“Hello Kaine. My name is Cindi but I go by the name Silk.” After that she looked out into the city and as her eyebrows knotted. Her silk-sense…it was picking up other Spiders, a lot of other Spiders. She could see their auras speckled across the city in different hues like christmas lights. The Spider in front of her for example was glowing a bright crimson color. But she could see others, red, blue and even a green one for some reason.
“How..many other Spider’s are here?” She asked as she stared out over the city scape.
Post by Kaine Parker on May 15, 2021 0:45:11 GMT 1
“I believe there are hundreds, if not thousands of spiders here. Just two of us, here alone, shows that.” Kaine summed it up, knowing that was hard to believe how many multiverses there might be. Kaine could imagine there were different spiders with different powers. All of them had unique stories all of their own. He had even wondered if there might be some without Peter or Spiders. That world seemed kind of dull. "Don't be afraid of what you're about to see." Kaine said as he felt like he could lift off his mask as the awful scar could be on his face. light skin complication, brown eyes, and dirty blonde hair. He was one of Peter's clones and it showed it too. It was only enough that he could let Cindi get a few minutes of a look as he was about ready to put his mask back on. He didn't want other people to run away and scream from his awful face.
“That sounds pretty awful… My world sounds like the opposite of cleaning up crime practically in the last few years. I mean, we built things like Ryker’s Island. My Spider-Man worked for SHIELD, for a long time, learning about his version of Great Power Comes Great Responsibility. As well as other prisons to hold some of the supervillains, but there are still plenty out there. I know I was a villain at one point too, but I changed. my ways.” Kaine said as he felt his voice quiver a little bit when he said that. Kaine knew that he came from a bad point and had suffered so much.
Kaine could afford to listen here as he heard about Cindi's past. It sounded worse than his for the treatment that he had suffered. They both suffered hardships in their own ways and own lives. “Some of it was manipulation from my creator, and he did not exactly give me a decent time to grow up in,” Kaine said as he wished to never see the Jackal again. “It sounds like we both have our troubles and our problems. If we can find a way home, I would send you back in a heartbeat along with all the other displaced spiders.” Kaine said.
He felt her hand touch his hand, for a handshake. As his spidey sense went off again this time it was a little bit better. Like he had made a connection. Kaine was not particularly good at making friends, but he hoped to hear. And his heart was pounding just a bit in his chest. Probably out of nervousness as far as he was concerned. “It is nice to meet you, Cindi, and it looks like we have fallen in the same category of wanting to go home. I’ve been here a few months now.” Kaine said as he recalled his adventures. He even came across a Doc Ock in his time. But this one sounded crazy for blowing up an entire city. The one that had been trying to help Kaine with his cellular degeneration was smarter than blowing the whole city out, and it sounded like it had been a nightmare ever since.
Kaine was certain there were also probably versions of him running around. Some probably less angry versions of him and even more so heroic ones. Maybe super villains’ sides too. Well, he did not want to think about it too much. “I have run into one Otto here too. I think Peter and I agreed that we did not particularly like his presence.” Kaine said as he dropped the whole part about the truce. That was between him and Otto, and he knew Otto had probably other plans than just fixing him. Kaine had every right to be suspicious. "Is there any place you want to go tonight? I can probably give you a quick tour of this New York City." Kaine offered. "I don't have much going on tonight, no responsibilities or anything. The truth is I wish to spend a little bit more time before we part ways. I don't like seeing that you are lost." He said. wishing to spend a little bit more time with Cindi. By then his mask was back on incase they wanted to go out he would be able to handle himself just fine with the mask on.
“I can't believe it.” She said looking out over the city. If what this Spider says is true there may not even be a way back if he has been here for months! Of course, she was in no real hurry to get back to the irradiated wasteland with little to no water, people that hated her, and the Goblin mutants. It was Ben she wanted to get back to. He was after all the only family she had in a sense.
“I..I’m not lost. And I don’t need any help I can take care of myself. I’m just a bit shaken is all…” She said knotting her eyebrows slightly. “This city was a burned-out husk, and now it's like it never happened. I live outside the city in a refugee camp where water and food are fought over and now I'm looking down at a sushi restaurant below… It's just a bit much.” Folding her arms she began to wonder if she was brought here for some sort of purpose? If she didn’t know better it was as if someone was collecting Spiders. When Kaine told her not to be afraid she looked over at him as he took his mask off. Cindi barely bats an eye at his appearance, however.
“Heh. Why would I be afraid? Of that little scar?” She said pointing to it. “Trust me I've seen way worse.” She smiled. “Most of the people I know have some sort of scars or tissue damage. Some even have lost limbs. So that isn’t so bad, in fact…I..I uh…think you aren't bad looking at all.” Cindi said before letting out a small cough and turning away. But when Kaine mentioned the word Otto…that got her attention.
“Otto? Did you say Otto? As in Otto Octavius?” She growled walking right up to him!
“Are you telling me that nutcase is alive!? You’ve seen him?! He is the one who destroyed my world! Him and his stupid weapon! He ruined my planet before I was even born! Can you take me to him? I want to look that man right in the eyes before I make him pay for what he did…” Turning from the other spider she jumped onto the ledge before looking back at him!

Kaine had been a little surprised on a couple of accounts. How could someone live in a dystopian wasteland the way Silk had said? The way she mentioned it, and New York City had been nothing but a war zone. That was something he could not picture. If a villain got their hands on the wrong materials or tons of material that could blow New York sky high, then he could believe it. “I know it is a bit of a shock. I can relate. when I got here, I almost threw up,” Kaine said. He remembered his events on the rooftop night on day one. “I can understand why you are shaken. My New York looks similar to this one. A few buildings misplaced, Avengers formed, X-Men, but none of that is here.” Kaine admitted. “I can’t imagine how hard it must’ve been for you to live like that. I doubt I could’ve lived like that probably with the rats in the sewers.” Kaine muttered.
“It sounded really bad, in fact, seriously bad from what you been through. I can only imagine it...” Kaine said having the idea that he could not grasp it in his mind of a broken down and destroyed New York City. Yes, he was aware of the different dimensions and going on. He had gone through a portal himself. He wanted to make sure Cindi was alright before he wandered off to his apartment for sleep. "Are you sure you are alright?" Kaine repeated, knowing it felt wrong to leave her in this shock.
“What? You mean you are not afraid of it? People used to run away from me on the streets. Calling me monster and freak as the scars were all over my body. But Not bad? That is a first.” Kaine repeated, a little surprised. That had been a first. Someone who did not run away from him. Or scream in terror. He was wondering just how bad things had been for Cindi in her world. He would never fully understand it unless he went there themselves. He was not even sure how that was possible or if it could even happen. He did not understand the changes in the dimensions.
“Otto? No, this one is different. I set up a truce. With this one, just temporarily to get my body fixed from cellular degeneration. I know at some point, I will be abandoned by Ock. I have that feeling. Or we will be forced to leave. I mean I do not even fully trust him. I have not had a reason too. As Otto in my dimension tormented the spiders, too. I understand where you are coming from.” Kaine admitted as he was certain that this Doc Ock was like that in the first place. The one in his dimension had been no different. He had attacked the web warriors, causing Peter every right to be miserable. That Ock in his dimension was a villain. This one. He half trusted him, and half did not, it was an odd sensation. And it left Kaine more confused.
And Kaine realized he had made some really weird friendships with the guy. The spiders in his time would not understand it. And he was not completely sure either. “To be honest, I think this Otto is different than the two we encountered. Call it a hunch, or being a former villain. However, I think the Otto that you are looking into is not yours. But if you want to look at him, and give him a piece of your mind, and fight, go ahead. I am sure we will run into him eventually.” Kaine said, not showing that he was defending Otto in any way. He was not going to get in the way of Cindi, wanting to see this Otto. The clone was not even going to try. He accepted that, with Otto. Kaine had made all kinds of mistakes. And if Cindi wanted to have him, he would not stop. But Kaine owed Otto one thing he gave him his life back. Kaine was going to stay out of that part.
Cindi listened and after a moment she let her arms fall to her sides. She knew this Octavius wasn’t the one she hated; he was dead! Killed by his own device. She just felt like she had to take her anger for her stupid mistake out on someone. But even that seemed empty. Letting out a sigh she took a seat on the ledge letting her feet hang over the side and reached up pulling off her mask.
“No. As much as I hate him, attacking him won’t bring me back to my world…” Pulling up a knee she held it with her arms and glanced over at Kaine. Trying to calm down after her outburst she smiled a little running a hand through her hair.
“People used to run from you over a few scars? That’s just stupid. Scars don’t make you a monster. All it means is your skin got damaged.” She shook her head. “Where I come from most people have scars or burns, even prosthetic hands or legs. Most of the older ones that is. The ones that were there for the fallout…” Looking back out over the city she then realized. She was now stuck in this place with no shelter, money, or food. “Crap!”
“This is just wonderful! Everything I had is back at the camp. I don’t even have any cash.” Letting her head fall onto her knee she shook it.
“I left home so unprepared…”She grunted. “Ben told me never to go out without my backpack in case I got stuck outside after dark. It even had camping gear in it! I really messed up…” Looking over at Kaine Cindi sighed.
“When you came to this world what did you do? How did you survive here?” She asked wondering what she was even supposed to do next.

“Trust me, when I say it looked worse before I got my cellular degeneration fixed. But really? Scars show that you survived. That sounds better than being screamed at or running away from.” Kaine said as he was a bit grateful for that. He had been in so much pain as it fired through his nerves. Touching things had caused so much agony, and he thought he wouldn’t live another day to go home. He knew he owed Otto a favor just for that much, and he could understand why Cindi was mad at him. Kaine's mask had remained off until he would leave which wouldn't be any time soon.
However, blowing up a whole city, and sounded like the one that was in his time. Otto had caused pain for everyone, including Spider-Man. Kaine had about 100 reasons to hate him too. But for some weird reason, he had gotten along with a different Otto. Perhaps he took pity on him for being a failed experiment. Probably. “I’m sorry that happened to you, Cindi, and that is a terrible fate. Otto certainly deserves to be put to justice, but if he is dead, there are other things to do, try to rebuild and make other people’s lives better.” Kaine said offered, knowing death seemed like that was the final act. "What's the matter?" Kaine asked as he felt a bit alarmed as she swore. He listened, hearing that she was now homeless.
“Well, if you want, you can stay with me until you get your feet up. I have an apartment that is not that far from here. When I first got here, I arrived at the docks and nearly threw up because the ride had been so bad. The nausea I felt went away after a few days. Navigating was not easy, either. I had been trying to earn money weird ways picking up wanted criminals off the streets, I have rent for a month or two.” Kaine said knowing a monster would never be welcomed in and have a real job. Kaine had all sorts of stories to tell Cindi but he knew he wouldn't be able to fit them in one night. That would take far too long.
“It’s that way.” He said pointing a finger in the direction of north. It would be a quick web-slinging job to get there. “It’s a crummy three-room apartment that has two beds, and it could fit you easily.” Kaine offered to know that was more kindness than he ever got. “That is if you want…” He offered. The clone hoped not to sound too awkward. “Do you want some pizza tonight? I was going to order out some food anyways.” He offered again he felt like he should at least do her a favor. Though that was his last bit of money before he was broke again. He would have to find more people off the street who were wanted criminals. He knew how it was to feel lost with no direction on where to go. He had no idea how to explain it or why. Kaine had no explanation other than abandoning her didn’t feel right at all.
Cindi let out a sigh, Kaine did have a point. The Otto she had heard about had died before she was even born. The first victim of his own pride and arrogance. But she still couldn’t help but feel hatred toward the man no matter if the one Kaine knows is innocent of it or not. But he was right about another thing too, she needed to move on. Now was not the time for anger or regret. She had to find a way home..somehow. But before she can do that she had to find shelter and food or getting back to Uncle Ben will be a very short-lived mission.
“Yeah, you're right. I can't keep being mad at a man I never knew. All I can do is push forward. If this other Otto you know helped you then maybe there is some version of him that isn’t as bad. But, from what I've heard don’t turn your back on him…” As Kaine explained his living situation Cindi smirked a little folding her arms.
“So let me get this straight? You want me, an innocent girl who is new to the city and all on her lonesome to come live with you only moments after meeting you?” She said arching a brow. She could feel he wasn’t a threat but she wanted to make him sweat for a bit before letting out a small laugh.
“Okay Red. Thanks for the help. But it’s a temporary thing got it? I don’t do charity. I'll find a job and help pay for rent and the means to get my own place.” She smiled shaking her head.
“I hope you don’t do this to every girl you meet. I could have been an axe murder, or one morning you wake up in a tub of ice without your kidneys or something...” Cindi chuckled before punching him on his shoulder.
“And yeah, food would be good, I’m starved.” Her voice then turned serious. “But I have only heard of this PI-ZAH in the ancient texts of the before-for times! I know not of it…” She said before letting out a snort. She defiantly had a Spider sense of humor..

“So far, most of the Ottos that I’ve heard about have met tragic spaces and unfortunate ends…. I know the one in my dimension tried to redeem himself…” Kaine said as he knew that was something he’d much rather not talk about. It was more of Peter’s memory, and problem as Kaine had just supported and tried to aid him along the way in stopping Otto, for that matter. Otto had worked for the government. However, at some point, down the road. He had gone mad and was put in jail. “The one in my dimension is now in jail from what I last knew, and he went a bit mad at the end himself…” Kaine admitted.
“Yeah, I know it’s strange-sounding… Cindi, but my spidey sense was what brought me here. I could’ve been some jerk to say that I would’ve just left you here to fend for yourself in an unknown dimension… Before I found the apartment, I slept on the streets for a night or two, and it wasn’t fun…” Kaine admitted as he knew that he had gathered up enough money. Kaine was surprised as he knew that she tries to put her weight and not let him do everything. He knew he already had paid enough rent for two months. “You are in luck at least I paid some rent about two months in advance, so that’s not one of our worries at the moment,” Kaine said.
“Well… I do not let every girl in. My creator told me not to talk to strangers. Sometimes I listen.” Kaine admitted as he had not let random strangers into his apartment. The Jackal had told him several times not to do that as he was going to keep that warning. But Cindi was different. He could not think of anything other than the odd part that he felt drawn to her. No one had ever done that to him before. “However, if you are willing to pull your weight, I will not hold you back, and you seem like a hard-working and strong woman,” Kaine said with a nod of approval. "I think you will like pizza. It is made of cheese and bread, baked in an oven. You can put all kinds of toppings on it too, like pepperoni, meat, and some veggies." Kaine explained as he hoped it sounded good enough to eat right now.
“I’ll call on the way as we web sling it will be dropped off at our door.” Kaine offered. He took his mask and put it back on. “Come on, last one there, is a uhm rotten spider?” that sounded stupid as far as he was concerned. But it didn’t matter. He put his hands out as he made the familiar thwip noise as he began to swing from one of the nearby buildings as he began to head home. He knew where it was from Times Square, and it wasn’t going to take long to get there. Kaine also took out his phone from his suit as he began to log in as he web-slings. Nothing like a little bit of multitasking as he ordered it.
