Baker actually smiles at Arc, "Who ever said Kelly was the target? Mystique and Sage, combined in one body? They are not missing that shot."

"So let's talk, Casey. Does your father know you're involved with this?"

“So this has simply been a warped, misguided attempt at avenging your son?”

I shook my head and looked at the floor.

“How disappointing.”

I looked back up at him.

“Did you know that the person actually responsible for your son’s death is dead?”

“Enough.”

I held the escrima in front of him.

“Did you know that the mastoid gland is one of the most painful spots on the body to strike? It is underneath the ear. I’m sure you could find it on yourself. First, you will feel an agonising pain rip through your body. Then you will feel like you are dying. You won’t die, but you will wish that you did.”

I paused.

“It goes on. Be clear. Explain,” I told him, hoping he wouldn’t call my bluff.

Marisol was busy staring at her hands with a slightly panicked expression. There were supposed to be tentacles there somewhere, but there weren't. She couldn't control her powers. Part of her told her she should be thankful for still holding on to her shape, but that part was quickly suppressed by the realization that she was absolutely helpless now.

Literally.

She was useless.

She didn't have any fighting skills to use without her powers whatsoever, not counting two or so lessons with Amelia, which hardly mattered. She didn't have any weaponry, and wouldn't know how to use any even if she did. All she could do was stand there and look on. And worst of all, she had been the one to suggest an assault on the car in the first place.

What a SCREW-UP.

For the moment, she just climbed in the car and pulled the door shut. Honestly, she had never learned to drive a car - she was only fourteen - but she wasn't an IDIOT. She had driven a van back during their second LA mission, and what she had in mind didn't require any sort of mastery. She turned the keys. The engine started rumbling. She took another split second to stare at the opposition like a maniac.

Then she accelerated and made headway towards the Ixnay clones. She was not going to be useless…

There are still openings. Strikes that he should have made. More effective. More efficient. More permanent. He should have taken them. He considers this as he is pulled away, and thinks about it. The letters blend together in his head, incoherent to any other than himself. He tries to respond to Rogue, but no sound comes out. Instead, he simple looks at her with uncertainty, and then at Pester. He gets the point.

A moment later, Cain slumps over, unconscious.
