Hector Blake longed for the excitement of his old life.

He had awoken in a dark room, the walls of which being impervious to his intense pyrokinesis, to fend off an endless one-on-one assault of enemies. He was, a day prior, living in peaceful retirement back home on Titan, once being a renowned superhero across the Sol system.

Now, adversaries flood the room he had found himself in, and his tools and abilities are all that he can use to stave off exhaustion while fighting personifications of his slothful thoughts. Hector’s applied displays incinerated such hindrances while reinvigorating him — but can he keep the fire alive, let alone bright enough to face a stronger burning willpower?

This short story was published as part of “SM-SARA, Poetry and Other Stories”, the second book in the HaikuPrajna collection.
