My Lie as a Popular Kid

I walked slowly down the hall, slight scratches covering my arms. My last fight had been rough, though I had escaped with barely any injury. I Opened the door slowly into my Math class. My teacher immediately turned to look at me, and I winced. "Umm, I was in the bathroom?" She nodded, and I sat down in my seat. Kids smiled at me, and a couple boys looked starstruck. Seriously, it was a pain being a popular kid. Some kids even though I was one of the Original Four! Ha! If only they knew. This was the last class of the day, so I was able to run home after this. I ran up a stairs to the bathroom. I looked through the medicine cabinet, passing through pain meds, pills, and bandaids, and... that, to find the bandages. I grabbed the white roll, rubbing alcohol, and antibiotic cream. I used a cloth soaked with alcohol to clean out the scratches, and put antibiotics cream on and bandaged it. There was little risk of infection, but I had to keep up my rep. And I couldn't do that if my bloodstream was poisoned.
I saw my phone buzz, and ignored it. But I realized the only times my phone buzzed for a ringtone on a call was unknown callers and Boss. I quickly grabbed the phone and accepted the call. "Great job today, Lynx."
"But I didn't win."
"It doesn't matter if you won, you achieved exactly what I wanted you to achieve."
"Please stop. I have another job for you."
The next day, school was abuzz with the gossip of the latest battle. The people who suspected me of a role gave me dirty looks. The superhero team, the Original Four, fought th supervillain, and had gotten badly injured. I wondered who they were. I wanted to congratulate them on their amazing work.
After all, not everyone can stand against me.
