Days later, Troy and Walt, in uniform as Heat Blister and Major Fry, met Jacob Brass on the roof of Blitz Tower, where a military helicopter awaited them. Jacob, who had returned from SpankTank with a heavily blistered and bruised bottom (but was not terribly unhappy about the painful experience), escorted them aboard.
Yes, the copter is armed, Jacob explained.
But we won’t need it. It’s just a precaution.
Probably. I’m pretty sure. Hang on, boys.
The three of them took to the air and headed east, over the sea.
The two of them watched the city go by below as Jacob gave them a quick overview.
We’re heading to Longbow’s Forward Outpost Omega. The name is absolutely NOT a coincidence. Every
man working on that platform is an Omega Upsilon Chi alumnus. Capt. Manuel Torres is the man in charge
there. He has built that base up to exactly the way he wants it to be.
I remember that name, Troy said.
Paragon A&M? Defensive line, if I remember.
Yup, Jacob said.
That’s the man. He’s a tough customer. They call him The Warden. You’ll
probably find out why.
They were well over the ocean now. There were aircraft carriers and platform outposts built in the sea scattered off the coast, intended to try to contain the Rogue Isles. From these bases Longbow’s forces occasionally launched raids on the island to try to keep the villains there from growing too powerful and threatening Paragon City and the rest of the country.
Here’s what you need to know before we get there, Jacob said.
Capt. Torres is one of the
few folks in the complete loop on the true nature of Oranbega, the Adepts of Discipline, and the whole
secret war between the two sides of pain. He knows who you all are, how you got your powers, that we’ve
got the formula, and that we’re working with you.
What, really? Troy said, looking surprised. Jacob nodded.
The reason you’ve never met him is because he’s completely devoted to fighting back the forces
of the Rogue Isles. He spends most of his time keeping the outpost running smoothly. He rarely returns
home to Paragon City. He was furious with us for how you guys ended up in Rogue Isles without you coming
to him first.
We were kidnapped, Walt pointed out.
You will find details like that don’t hold much sway over him, Jacob said.
Some of the
guys you freed were from his outpost, by the way. He said he was handling them appropriately.
That sounds very ominous, Troy said.
Oh, I assure you, you do not want to be those men right now, Jacob said.
Speaking of which,
his men are semi-aware of the obsession of pain that motivates them as well as their foes. They know of
the existence of Oranbega and have even fought the mages. Some have even been kidnapped and temporarily
turned into satyrs.
Ouch, Troy said.
Ouch, indeed, Jacob said.
But they don’t actually know about the Adepts of Discipline or
that the magic of Oranbega is powered by pain. The Warden has purposefully kept them in the dark on that
because of the danger of other villains finding out from interrogations and torture. There are too many
people fighting for control of Oranbega already.
Troy nodded. At this point, even with additional Omega boys showing interest in becoming heroes, they were keeping knowledge of the secret war between the Adepts of Discipline and the Circle of Thorns, and the role of the Blister Boyz in helping the Adepts, to themselves.
These guys lead some very rough lives, Jacob said.
Remember the Crimson Brotherhood had
some of them enslaved before you even arrived. Being a Longbow agent working in Rogue Isles means accepting
some harsh treatment now and then. Keep that in mind as you watch what’s going on at the outpost.
Now I’m really curious, Walt said.
We’re on the approach now, sirs! The pilot shouted back to them.
A massive platform had been built atop supports and struts that plunged down into the deep ocean.
Buildings had been constructed on the outer edge of the platform, and the guys could also see that there
were additional walls and
buildings within the support structure beneath the platform. Much of
the platform was open cement and tarmac, room for a pack of helicopters to land if need be to prepare
for an assault (or to return from one). There were missile launchers positioned on all the corners of
the platform to help defend the outpost from attacks.
Look at those flags, Troy said. The flags were white and red, the color of the Longbow forces,
but in the middle of the white center of each flag was a big red omega symbol. The font was clearly exactly
the same as the one Omega Upsilon Chi used for their frat letters.
Oh, there’s much more than that, Jacob said.
Looks like Manny’s busy doing what he does
There were Longbow men on deck in their skin-tight red-and-white spandex uniforms. As the helicopter approached, Troy and Walt could make out that there were a handful of men scattered across the deck on their hands and knees, crawling across the tarmac. Behind each crawling man was another Longbow agent wielding a paddle. Every couple of seconds, the Longbow agents swung their paddles hard, cracking them against the backsides of their crawling peers.
They’re doing penny pushes? Troy asked.
Oh yes, Jacob said.
They’re much more intense than what you boys do at the frat, too.
Jacob pointed over to a large side building where several men were gathered.
There’s Capt. Torres.
Troy and Walt looked over as the helicopter swooped in to land.
Torres was a large man, on par with Jason. It made sense, given that they were both linemen. He wore the same red-and-white spandex uniform of the Longbow that showed off a powerfully muscular body. He was occupied at the moment and didn’t even look over at the helicopter as it was landing. He was standing with one foot planted atop a tall footstool. This gave him a perfectly bent knee. Across this knee he had pulled over one of the other Longbow men for punishment. Torres was big enough and tall enough that the man was draped over the captain’s knee without the Longbow’s feet touching the ground. The Longbow man’s arms were crossed behind his back, and Torres massive left hand had grabbed onto his forearms to hold him in position.
The Longbow agent’s spandex pants were pulled down to his thighs, exposing a muscular bottom framed
with a jockstrap. Troy doubted that jockstraps were official Longbow underwear, but this outpost was clearly
operating under frat rules. Torres had a round clear paddle, probably some sort of plastic or Lexan, and
he was fiercely smacking it against the Longbow man’s ass—WHAP! WHAP! WHAP! WHAP—with almost
no break between swats for his victim to recover. It was not unlike one of David’s famous
rides, but Troy and Walt suspected this punishment had gone on for much longer. The victim’s ass was
a very dark red. What was surprising was how seemingly calm he was about getting his ass positively blistered.
He did not appear to be kicking or struggling against the punishment in any way, even though it was remarkably
harsh and had to be putting him in intense pain with every swat.
Troy, Walt, and Jacob carefully exited the helicopter and headed over toward Capt. Torres. He looked over to them and gave a quick nod while viciously continuing his swats.
Welcome to Forward Outpost Omega, Torres said, looking over the boys as he continued to paddle
Specialist Tye, greet our guests!
Sirs, Welcome to Forward Outpost Omega, sirs, Tye said, holding his position perfectly, though
his voice quivered. The two Blister Boyz noticed that the nearby building’s exterior had been surfaced
with thin aluminum panels that had been buffed smooth until they were reflective. Capt. Torres was positioned
so that the Spc. Tye was facing the mirrored wall. Tye was staring directly forward into the eyes of his
own reflection. This also meant he was in a position to see his own upturned ass in his reflection and
knew every time a swat was about to land. Yet he managed to keep from squeezing his cheeks together in
anticipation when the paddle came down. Troy and Walt could also see that Spc. Tye’s face was deep red
and tears streaked down his face. He was crying and grimacing, but was taking care not to verbalize how
much pain he was in.
You may remember Tye here from your visit to the Crimson Brotherhood, Torres said.
like they toughened him up a bit. I’ve been trying to tease some extra demerits out of him but he’s having
a butch day. Is that right, Tye?
Sir, yes sir!
Maybe you’ll actually earn your way out of the red zone and get your leave privileges back.
Torres said. Torres then turned and grinned at his guests. He had jet black hair cut short and penetrating
brown eyes. He also had a few scars on his face, across his forehead, his thick nose, and his left cheek.
Suddenly, after making it seem as though the punishment session was over, he tormented Tye with a flurry
of viciously fast swats. WHAP! WHAP! WHAP! WHAP! His arm was practically a blur. He watched Tye intently
as he punished, looking for a reaction. Tye continued to stare into his own eyes and keep his ass up and
relaxed for the punishment. He gasped with pain and grimaced but did not cry out.
Can’t blame a guy for trying, Torres said after stopping. Troy noticed Torres briefly glance
at his watch. He noticed a reddish-purple glow coming from it and wondered if it was like David’s, which
allowed him to detect whether his paddlings were providing good pain (discipline) or bad pain (abuse).
If that were the case, the Warden’s punishment had gone far beyond discipline into the kind of torment
that helped feed the Circle of Thorns.
Torres snapped his fingers, and a Longbow agent brought a tray over to him. The boys were rather amused to see that the tray contained several butt plugs. Torres looked them over, and picked one out.
These are all nicely lubricated with a very intense capsaicin oil I made them cook up themselves,
Keeps the punishment going for a good hour or so once I’m done with them. He
slowly started pushing the butt plug into Specialist Tye’s ass. The Longbow agent again tried his best
not to react but his grimace was visible in the mirror and his bottom quivered noticeably.
Whose thumb are you under, Specialist Tye? Capt. Torres asked. As a point of emphasis he used
his right thumb to push the plug all the way into Tye’s ass.
Sir, yours sir, Tye grunted.
Is that where you belong? Torres asked.
Sir, yes sir.
You may work your way out of the red zone, Tye, but you’ll always be under my thumb. Understand?
Sir, yes sir.
Now put that ass on display, son, for our guests, Torres said as he allowed Tye off his knee.
Tye, leaving his uniform pants pulled down, carefully walked over to an unusual nearby set of what sort
of looked like parade bleachers. A set of stepped benches, but with wider rows than usual, had been built
and installed connected to a nearby building. Six of the Longbow agents were on display on the risers
of these bleachers. They were on their hands and knees on the risers in a sort of penitent prayer position.
They were facing inward, so their exposed bottoms were on full display. Each backside had been thoroughly
punished, and they were all nice dark shades of red. Each of them had a buttplug shoved in them, just
like Specialist Tye. The Omega symbol had been inscribed in the base of each plug.
This is my tomato patch. Torres said, gesturing to the collection of punished men. Tye joined
them, kneeling on a riser and raising his quivering bottom upward to display it. Just as with Tye’s paddling,
the specialist was staring directly into a shiny metal wall on the side of the building he was facing,
forcing him to make eye contact with himself again.
I like to have a nice display when guests come
That’s pretty intense, Heat Blister noted.
Oh, this is nothing, Torres said, as a Longbow agent brought over a tablet of info to look
During the summer, I rub their sorry asses with baby oil, too, and they sit here getting a nice
sunburn while waiting for me to let them get back to work. He jabbed at the tablet with a thick finger
for a few moments.
Looks like a couple of you guys have work deadlines this afternoon. Too bad I’ve
got this meeting here with these heroes first before I’m gonna let you up. You might be getting some more
demerits, Lewis and Purdy. Oooh, one more demerit puts Purdy into the red zone, isn’t that right, Purdy?
Yes, sir, one of the men on the bleachers said.
Think you’ll make it?
I’ll do my best sir.
Be nice to get another boy in the red zone with Tye working his way out, Torres said.
me, I mean. Not for you, obviously. For our guests, here, Purdy, tell them, do I want you to succeed or
fail at meeting your deadline and staying out of the red zone today?
You want me to fail, sir.
Troy’s eyes widened, while Walt looked sidelong at Capt. Torres.
And why is that, son?
You enjoy beating my ass, sir.
Correct, but incomplete, Capt. Torres said.
I love beating all their asses. It also happens
to be my job. Gotta love what you do. Torres nodded to a nearby door to next to the
Inside, you three, He said, with not a small amount of menace.
We have a lot to discuss.
No interruptions, he said to the Longbow agent watching over the punished men.
We’re talking classified
Torres directed the three of them into a decent-sized office with maps of Rogue Isles all over the some of the walls, and monitors all over the others. Torres gestured to two metal stools nearby for Troy and Walt to sit on, then he abruptly reached over and grabbed Jacob around the neck with one beefy arm and then grabbed his ass roughly with his free hand.
You letting SpankTank get his hands on that ass? Torres growled in Jacob’s ear.
to make me jealous?
Always, Jacob said with a grin.
He make you cry harder than I make you cry? Torres asked.
It’s been a while, Jacob responded.
Not sure if I can remember enough to compare.
Oh, we’ll fix that long before I let you go, Torres said.
You’ll remember who really owns
your ass when you’re not Andrew’s spank slave.
Troy looked them over, glanced briefly over at Walt and thought to himself,
Is Manuel Jacob’s
boyfriend? Neither of them seemed particularly monogamous in their behavior, but then, he and Jason
loved to bring in a third now and then for more fun.
All right, Torres said, breaking away from Jacob and sitting behind his desk.
about you fuck-ups and what the hell happened and how much I want to kick your asses all the way back
to Paragon City.
Well, Troy began. Torres held up a hand to stop.
One thing, Torres said.
I don’t care if you’re heroes. Frat rules. I outrank you. I can
bust your asses all I want and I just might. I understand Andrew gives you some leeway before cracking
the paddle and Jacob here is ... well, I don’t have to tell you which side of the paddle he belongs on.
I am not like them. I am not a nice guy. I will not be giving you leeway. On this outpost I’m in charge
and I will paddle your asses, heroes or no, chosen ones of Adepts of Discipline, or what the fuck ever.
And I will enjoy it. At least one of you is getting his ass busted today. And I’m not talking about Jacob.
Busting Jacob’s ass is just a given.
I’ve already done a penny push, but if you demand I do another, then I guess... , Troy began.
Not you, him, Torres said, pointing his paddle directly at Walt. Walt held the man’s gaze
and didn’t look away.
I’m the team leader, Troy said.
Because it was his fuck up, wasn’t it? Torres said.
No, let me correct myself. It was a
goddamn cascade of fuck-ups that led to your entire team being trapped in the supervillain equivalent
of North Korea. And reading all these reports, it led squarely back to the man you assigned to handle
Yeah, but I’m the leader. I’m ultimately responsible for... , Troy began. Torres glared at
No. This ain’t football any more, Torres said.
I mean, yes, you’re responsible. But responsibility
