Xander's computer couldn't possibly be glitching right now. He had just bought the thing, and while it was a somewhat justified purchase seeing as his last one was busted... he couldn't see the need for it. But that didn't mean he didn't need it. 
He looked down at the locket hanging loose around his neck, before shooting out of seat and rushing over to his cabinet; downing a bottle of vodka. 
He would create something better than his bogus laptop that was now ridden with viruses, and he had a thirst to find out whoever did it in the first place. His revenge would be the envy of all villains, and everyone would know his name. 
But first, he had to grab something important. A very special coolant with a pair of tongs for his CPU system. 
Using the simple tongs, he simply grabbed the coolant and poured it over his CPU; frying the whole thing. 
Sorta like how his sports coach liked all his food. Though he was known to come up with annoying circuits off the bat. 
Right outside Xander's grand apartment, a bank theft of great intensity was going on.
Granted, it would take a god awful time for the robbers to slip through the system; even while lathered head to toe in a slippery lotion. 
Upstairs, a proud man was quietly going about his business as he made his usual phone calls; right before something crawled up his leg and bit him; sending a waves of kinetic waves through his body. 
He kicked out his legs, knocking the table to the floor like a grand piano. 
His body shook while he took raspy heavy breath, the sensation of something changing
