4-25-11: This short story takes place between the 'Two Pillars Position' and the 'Clasping Position'. And after reading it, it's still kind of confusing on the chronological timeline, because Kendra Jones has already met Vic & Matt. But, they don't meet for the first time until the 'Hammock Position'. However, the Super Bowl is clearly before Valentine's Day. So do like me and ignore it and enjoy the hilarious adventure that'll finally tell of Vic using his powers in public to help and do good, instead of coping or not coping with them. 6-07-10: A hot and steamy short story that has me curious for more. Imagine it. Having sex with the one you love can give you superpowers. And, you can read one another's thoughts. How cool is that!? I definitely want to check out this series.
