Daisy Watches Fate Unfold, Part I
"WHAT DID YOU DO TO HIM?!"
Daisy was on guard as soon as she heard the rude boy's annoyingly familiar voice. She turned quickly, ready to defend herself, though she doubted he was really a threat. The rude boy was standing there, obviously fuming about something.
They were in the food court of the mall. She and Rhonda were seated at a table eating Chick-Fil-A sandwiches. Daisy turned back to her tray, finished chewing, took a sip of her Sprite, then stood up to face the boy.
"What did I do to whom?" she replied calmly.
"You know damn well who! My dad!"
She studied his angry face and-much to her annoyance-still found him attractive. His hair had gotten a little longer and shaggier, but she kind of liked that. Still, she was very annoyed with him.
"I'm sorry, but as much as you've been stalking me-"
"STALKING?!" he interrupted.
Daisy calmly stared him down, then continued. "As much as you've been stalking me, I don't even know

Daisy's Hot Pursuit
One evening, Daisy was watching Star Trek reruns, swearing she would study for her SATs soon, when the phone rang. The mayor's voice greeted her.
"Daisy, I hate to bother you on a school night, but Richmond needs your help."
"What is it, Mister Mayor?"
"Two words: Bad Penny."
Daisy sighed and pinched the bridge of her nose. "Her again? Broke out of juvie, huh?"
"Seems that way. She's holding a chemical plant hostage."
"I guess she's asking for me?"
There was a pause. "Well, no, not really."
For a split second, Daisy was actually almost disappointed. But then, she was just relieved.
"Has she made any demands?" Daisy asked.
"Just one. But it's a.. v...ry... ..."
"I'm sorry?" Daisy replied.
"You have to listen very carefully," whispered the mayor. Then he whispered something else but Daisy had to strain and concentrate to understand it. And then, her instincts kicked in and she ducked.
The glass of the TV room window shattered and a throwing

Daisy Gets Back on her Feet
Daisy was standing in a desert filled with dead babies, all murdered by her Magic AK-47 that Never Runs out of Ammo. A man was standing before her wearing a tuxedo, a top hat, and a white sash that said "MAYOR".
"Daisy," the man said sadly, "I am so disappointed in you. You are such a bad person." And the man didn't look at all like the mayor of Richmond, but more like her father. He just shook his head, then turned and handed the key to the city to Flawless Man. Beside him stood the rude boy, and they both looked at Daisy and snickered.
To her horror, Daisy realized she was completely naked. She glanced back at the two males who mockingly appraised her. The mayor/dad had apparently vanished.
"Adequate," Flawless Man remarked, like a stuck up art critic.
"Not even," said the boy. His face looked meaner than it ever had before.
Daisy had never been so humiliated. She couldn't care less what Flawless Man thought, but for some reason

Daisy Goes for a Walk on a Cold Day.
One bright but chilly day, Daisy was walking through the forest where she liked to pick wildflowers. There were no flowers in bloom this day though. The trees were bare, and the last hints of snow were beginning to fade. Spring was still a month or two off. It was a nice day for a walk.
Daisy was one day away from her birthday. She was turning seventeen. She felt as if nothing could bring her down.
As if in response to her thoughts, she heard a skittering sound behind her. She turned to see a very cautious-looking lizard beast sneaking around. As soon as it realized it had been spotted, it began to run away, but not before Daisy had whipped out her Magic AK-47 that Never Runs out of Ammo and riddled the thing full of holes.
She walked over to its corpse and poked at it with her foot. Curiously, this lizard beast was not covered in slime as the last one had been. Still, taking no chances that it might regenerate, she plante

Daisy Meets Yet Another
"Please tell me it isn't you," the mayor's voice pleaded through the handset.
Daisy was still too stunned to respond as she watched the news. The reports were all the same. A young blonde girl wielding a sword and an assault rifle was knocking over bank after bank.
"Daisy?" The mayor began to sound panicked.
"Sorry Mr. Mayor. I'm watching the news and I don't know who it is, but it isn't me."
At least not a me that I've met yet, she thought silently.
"Please help us, Daisy."
"You can count on me, Mr. Mayor." Then she hung up the phone, did some quick figuring on her whiteboard, and determined the next bank that would be hit. Soon, she was on her way there, ready to meet another future self. This time, Future Daisy wouldn't get the drop on Present Daisy.
Clad in a black hoodie and sunglasses, she waited inconspicuously in an alley, staking out the bank across the street. Several security guards stood watch outside, apparently anticipati

Daisy Runs Afoul of the Law
One cold winter morning, Daisy awoke and looked out her window to see the ground blanketed with snow. Feeling like a little girl again, she bundled up in a big pink puffy coat with a hood, and bounded out the front door of her house. The snow was nearly a foot deep.
Daisy immediately flopped down on her back and began making a snow angel. As she gazed up into the white, cloudy sky, she saw a tiny black dot. As she gazed at the dot, it began to get bigger.
The bigger it got, the faster it did so. In a matter of seconds it was no longer a dot, but a dark, boxy shape.
Daisy jumped up and did a backflip away from her snow angel spot. A split second later, an earth-shaking "WHUD!" resounded from where the object impacted. She studied it from a battle-ready crouch. The object resembled nothing so much as a twenty foot-tall stone statue of a man in robotic-looking armor, down on one knee, carrying a lance pointed at the ground, its head b
