Plot[edit | edit source]
In the world of parkour, a cocky traceur named Nick has always been a real "Nicholas" (in other words, a jerk). He reviews a group of fellow freerunners and arrogantly claims that their stunts are pathetic, before challenging them to a race.
The race leads up to the top of a building. As they scaled it, Nick is behind, so to get ahead, he plays dirty by pushing a traceur out of his way. Shooting off the wall like a cannon, Nick didn't realize that he was about to be impaled in the neck by an exposed pipe until it's too late. The pipe is then driven into his spinal cord through the trachea, with death becoming instant. The traceurs behind him react in shock and disgust.
"Parkour isn't supposed to be about ego, it's an art combining body, mind, and motion. Nicky boy here didn't get that. And now ego...bye-bye."
