«Alright let's get this show on the road.»

The jet lands, still cloaked. The Generation X find themselves in a Marshy forest, with the X-factor stationed nearby, ready to transport the soon to be liberated mutants. Rahne gets out, wiping the swear off her furry brow. It's hot and humid, during this time of the year.

"Alright. The compound is some distance north of ye, the rest of the trip will have to be completed on foot, considering we'd be sneakin in."

Lance was feeling more than nervous - first mission and all - but working hard not to show it. He smiled semi-cockily in Nathan's direction.

"Will do," he said and… ran off towards the target without using his powers. A few seconds later, he realized that this probably wasn't what was expected of him, and disappeared in a burst of super-speed. As told, he was trying to scout stealthily.

Post by Kelly Alecia "Star Girl" Lisa on Jul 25, 2007, 9:15pm

It just means that I have to wait a little while longer… I can do that. I can be patient.

No, I probably cannot, but I do not have a choice either way, do I? I try to quiten the irritated hiss that leaves my lips as the air runs past my teeth and out of my mouth.

"Fine." I skulk forwards slowly and cautiously.

Post by Joshua/Darya/Kara/Marcus on Jul 25, 2007, 9:18pm

It takes a minute or two before Lance sees the compound in the distance. It's an rusty old building, probably was used for military purposes before. They're large walls, barb wire, guards stationed at sniping posts, the works. The guards seem rather thuggish.

Post by Lance Cameron on Jul 25, 2007, 9:20pm

Lance looked over the compound and tried to memorize the important bits. He wondered if this was what the tall guy had meant by scouting, or that he should go further… Well, better safe than sorry. He couldn't screw up on his first time, could he?

He moved back to the group to relay what he had seen.

Post by Joshua/Darya/Kara/Marcus on Jul 25, 2007, 9:38pm

They're in the building, large area. Very old, very worn. They're two guards some distance in front of them that hadn't noticed them yet, as well as one or two security cameras.


Re: Generation X #18 - Bigger risks, Bigger gains
Post by Kelly Alecia "Star Girl" Lisa on Jul 25, 2007, 9:38pm

In the first moment, it is very dizzying. Destabilising too. I keep from throwing up - only just - but it still takes me a moment before I can focus on anything.

When I do, my eyes lock onto the compound, and a low, quiet growl leaves my mouth.

"Okay."

I pause and take a breath, and consider the problems with using my powers. Then I remember how little I care if any of these traffickers are hurt.

I shut my eyes and start singing;

"My plug in baby,
Crucifies my enemies,
When I'm tired of giving.
My plug in baby,
In unbroken virgin realities,
Is tired of living."

"Compound wall." He removes a guantlet. "Lance, be sharp. I want you changed into a guard uniform before the smoke clears. Nephy, be ready to take the other guy if I miss."


Re: Generation X #18 - Bigger risks, Bigger gains

I nod.

«Pick some colors for yaselves.»

The security cameras break, the guards are floored. One of them sounds an alarm, that echos through the entire compound.

Another guard comes through and opens fire at the two. One bullet scrapes Dillon on the cheek.


Re: Generation X #18 - Bigger risks, Bigger gains
Post by Lance Cameron on Jul 25, 2007, 9:42pm

"Heheh, who's worrying?"

He smiled at Nephy and nodded at Nathan.


Re: Generation X #18 - Bigger risks, Bigger gains
Post by Orchestra the Mighty on Jul 25, 2007, 9:42pm

I cover my ears as Meisha starts singing. It's not as bad as it could be, I mean, I've been hit with a blast from and older more powerful version of her, but this is…still kind of painful.

"Sing it sister." I say, scanning the room and noticing the cameras. Doesn't really matter now.

Crap.

I clutch my cheek and teleport behind the guard, grab him by the neck and teleport away a small layer of skin.


Re: Generation X #18 - Bigger risks, Bigger gains
Post by Meghan "Twilight" Sanders on Jul 25, 2007, 9:42pm

"Alright…."

I'm worried, but I shake it off. It takes a few moments for me to gather the appropriate amount of energy, then I teleport all of us where Nate directed.

As they're enveloped in a covering of darkness, they see creatures….horrible creatures. The Darkforce is darker than anything they've ever seen, but it's almost…blindingly bright at the same time. Meghan keeps any creatures from nearing the team as they're transported, but that doesn't stop the completely cold and dark feeling that washes over everyone…then it's over and they're at the destination.

"You did not want to do that," I growl, directing a sonic scream at the guard at the same time as bounding towards him, aiming to drive an elbow into his nose and kick him hard in knee. It is fairly fragile. The joint might shatter.


Re: Generation X #18 - Bigger risks, Bigger gains
Post by Lance Cameron on Jul 25, 2007, 9:44pm

This… decreased Meghan's hotness in his eyes by one whole point.

At least he could feel proud he wasn't throwing up.


Re: Generation X #18 - Bigger risks, Bigger gains
Post by Joshua/Darya/Kara/Marcus on Jul 25, 2007, 9:45pm

The joint shatters, the guard screams. Alot of footsteps can be heard, more mercenaries are coming.

Nephy comes out, Shivering like she was just in arctic waters, pale, with the expression she had when they first started frozen on her face. It was not THAT bad… But it could have been much, much better.


Re: Generation X #18 - Bigger risks, Bigger gains
Post by Joshua/Darya/Kara/Marcus on Jul 25, 2007, 9:48pm

The second team reaches the compound, same area Lance scouted. They're less guards, two this time,on the posts and the one on the posts seem a little distracted.


Re: Generation X #18 - Bigger risks, Bigger gains
Post by Meghan "Twilight" Sanders on Jul 25, 2007, 9:48pm

I notice Nephy shivering…damn it. I sigh.


Re: Generation X #18 - Bigger risks, Bigger gains
Post by Kelly Alecia "Star Girl" Lisa on Jul 25, 2007, 9:50pm

"I will try," I nod, turning back to the building. Structural support, structural support… do I aim for the top, where it is more fragile? Or do I aim for the bottom, where it is stronger, but where all of the building's support comes from?

That is what will do the most damage.

"Topple, little house of cards."

I do not sing. It has an eloquent elegance to it - that attack - and is much more appealing to me, but it is ultimately less powerful. I just scream at the building's support. I scream as hard as I can, until I feel my throat start to go raw. And then I continue screaming.


Re: Generation X #18 - Bigger risks, Bigger gains
Post by Joshua/Darya/Kara/Marcus on Jul 25, 2007, 9:50pm

A grenade is thrown near the two as guards start coming in and opening fire. The building starts breaking, some of the soldiers cover their ears, a metal rafter falls on one of them crushing him.

Post by Lance Cameron on Jul 25, 2007, 9:50pm

"Hey, don't sweat it," Lance told Meghan, "We're all here safely, aren't we?"

Re: Generation X #18 - Bigger risks, Bigger gains
Post by Sir Nathaniel/Fang on Jul 25, 2007, 9:51pm

Nathaniel heaves the guantlet into the air at the distracted guard, and runs the rest of the way towards him. Intending to bring down twin batons on him if the guantlet misses, or doesn't hurt him bad enough. Hopefully Lances keeps up his end.


Re: Generation X #18 - Bigger risks, Bigger gains
Post by Orchestra the Mighty on Jul 25, 2007, 9:51pm

As the grenades come in, I grab Meisha by the waist and teleport with her…back to the rest of the team…a few minutes (no clue how many) in the past.

"Hey guys. We don't have much time to handle this, the building is gonna partly collapse in a few minutes."


Re: Generation X #18 - Bigger risks, Bigger gains
Post by Joshua/Darya/Kara/Marcus on Jul 25, 2007, 9:54pm

«No more colours yay!»

The guard gets hit in the head and rather comically falls to the ground, in the area in front of the GenX with a dull thund. The other guard turns and aims his rifle at Nathaniel's head, about to fire.


Re: Generation X #18 - Bigger risks, Bigger gains
Post by Lisa "Nephy" Nephrahim on Jul 25, 2007, 9:55pm

He said the other guy right? But if he misses. He's only attacking one gaurd….

I send a blood fist at the one Nate is not attacking.


Re: Generation X #18 - Bigger risks, Bigger gains
Post by Joshua/Darya/Kara/Marcus on Jul 25, 2007, 9:56pm

The other guard gets hit, stray bullet missing Nathaniel by an inch. Now both of them are down. They hear a loud creak at the structure destabilizing.


Re: Generation X #18 - Bigger risks, Bigger gains
Post by Lance Cameron on Jul 25, 2007, 9:57pm

Lance started redressing… once again, without using his powers. He was fast enough anyway. He had to admit, part of him was turned on by doing it in plain sight. He was keeping his underwear.

He finds a key as well, which opens the door on the wall, as well as the door to get inside the compound.

I step to the other side of Lance, color has returned to my face. I'm really not trying to stand away from Meghan, I just think it makes more sense for us to be on opisite sides.


Re: Generation X #18 - Bigger risks, Bigger gains
Post by Kelly Alecia "Star Girl" Lisa on Jul 25, 2007, 10:08pm

Not being able to do anything right now is making me a little anxious. If I could, there would be a temptation to scream - of course, the raw and sore throat makes that very hard to do. It is why I am not talking right now.

I need someone to hurt. I cannot just bring the place down even if I could scream right now, because that would not get the captive mutants out. But I need to… do something.

There was a guard by the door. He's extremely distracted, he speaks something in Bangla to Lance when he sees him.

Lance nodded fervently whenever there was a pause in the conversation. He pointed at the other side of the compound and nodded in the direction as well.

With an expression of utter casualness and relaxation - so he wouldn't arouse suspicion - Lance used super speed to try to grab the guard's gun and then hit him over the head with it. The speed should also have enhanced his strength in practice.

On his back on the ground, Lance suddenly realized that a chest would might have other effects than just a scar. The pain was pretty bad, but, overall, he wasn't worried about his life. Fumbling with his gun, he tried to set it to "fire" and shoot the beast. It could move pretty fast… but he could aim pretty fast. If only his vision wasn't so blurry…

The combined impaling, shooting, and stabbing, makes the beast hop off again. It's skin's pretty tough. Nathaniel can see the battle. As it hops off, over Nephy's head, it kicks her with it's hind legs. Pretty strong although no permenant damage.

I reach down and take the key, then turn to the creatures. I'd been keeping them at bay so the guards didn't die.

"Have your way with them."

I teleport back to the team, holding the key.

Everyone is outside the base, some kids are scared from their darkforce experience. Others blinded. There are guards but they're mostly ignoring them. Suddenly the base shakes and collapses, and out of the collapsed compound emerges something.

"Nephy…can you stop this nosebleed?"

Why the hell…I stare down at my hand.

"Um… I can, but it will be kinda gross. Are you sure?"

I glance down at my chest, it's covered in blood. Under my nose, the left side of my face is covered in blood. I stare at her.

"What do you think?"

Wait.

"Sorry, didn't mean to snap like that. Please…"

Back to staring at my hand…why won't it work?

"Really? What do you know about Hebrew food preparation?"

I look at him curiously.

"Um.. It's okay Meghan but it will… Fine."

First all the blood on her shirt is forced up her nose back into her body, followed by a little blood finger diging up her nose, which I use to force the clot and stop the bleeding.

"I know it's tasty and delicious… I bet Wildfire knows how to do it, she speaks all kinda languages and stuff."

Adam grimaces at all the blood… Suddenly he's not that hungry.

That was odd.

"T-thanks Nephy."

I stare down at my hand.

"ARGH!"

I punch the wall…ow…I think I broke something….

"Ow…"

"I can't do anything!"

I'm cradling my hand.

"I've been trying to teleport and form energy blasts since I left you guys and went with the kids."

I try to teleport again.

"IT'S NOT WORKING! I can't sense the Darkforce!"

"It'll come back Meghan. Don't worry."

I look around for support.

"It's never disappeared before!"

My hand hurts…a lot.

Adam has a hard time helping Nephy console Meghan. He's too busy picturing them both naked. He sits and gawks at them with an odd grin.

"Yeah, but a lot of our powers have. Don't worry about it too much."

I spot Adam Grining.

"… Adam?"

"Nephy, you don't get it. Every day since I was eleven years old, I've been able to feel the Darkforce. Even when we were captured by Apocalypse and our powers were off; I couldn't use it, but I could feel it. THAT'S GONE!"

I fall back into the seat. I feel so empty…I won't cry…I wont'.

"Actualy, I do understand Meghan. Beacuse I've had the same thing since BIRTH, and lost it when Jay screwed with my powers."

I don't reply, I just stare at the floor.
