Rescue Me 1/22/13
(SWrP) Rescue Me
7:23 PM [phidya] ::The bite of the mid winter night chilled the five heroes as they stepped into the police station lobby. The officer at the desk eyed them with a tired and suspicious gaze. There was a bit of equality in his suspicion, because you got the feeling everyone got that look, not just mutants, or criminals, everyone. Funny thing equality, you can find it in all the negative places too::
7:27 PM [Hugh McLaughlin] Hugh gives the watchhouse keeper a wink as they wait their turn, then looks around at the others. "Don't mind him. Dad used to talk about that. You just get to looking at everyone outside The Job the same after a while." Hugh is not in his uniform, as it suffered death by Dragon. Tonight he's got a dark trenchcoat over hard wearing trousers, shirt and his old combat boots... it's hard to take down a decent pair of boots.
7:29 PM [Sophia Bruneau] Sophia had come dressed casually, a light brown peacoat on her shoulders, under which was a brown thermal. She had her usual jeans, and began to absently sniff, occasionally tapping her foot to see if the room had changed since the last time. She looked up from her small trance, looking down at her sneaker, to Hugh, "Distrust? Yes, I imagine it would be common in a place like this..." She nodded.
7:29 PM Adair Forsythe is in street clothes black jeans, hooded sweatshirt that is black as well, and his usual hiking boots...it was a chilly evening but he wasn't wearing a heavy coat.
7:29 PM [William Taylor] Will looks around the police station as they enter, smiling at Hugh's comment. He's wearing jeans, a black polo shirt with the gold X on it, and his winter coat over that...
7:29 PM [Shelly Saville] Shelly tries to look casual. She wore blue jeans, a black t-shirt and a open black overcoat, and red-tinted sunglasses. "Um, we're here to see Detective Ramirez."
7:30 PM [phidya] ::The uniformed officer looks Shelly over:: All of yous?
7:30 PM [Sophia Bruneau] "Yes, all of us." Sophia nodded, giving the officer a smile.
7:31 PM [Hugh McLaughlin] "Distrust?" Hugh smiles a little and mutters to Sophia. "Nah, it's the perfect trust of knowing almost everyone you encounter in the course of your shift will likely be doing the dumbest and meanest things humanly possible."
7:32 PM Adair Forsythe looked over at the man at the desk a moment with his dimly glowing blue eyes he was quiet at the others chatted a bit though
7:33 PM [phidya] ::He picks up a phone and dials, presumably, Ramirez. He speaks in short gruff phrases then hangs up:: He'll be up in a minute to take you back to his office.
7:33 PM [Sophia Bruneau] "Ah. I hope we're not one of those... We probably are, but," She shrugged, "Guess it's most likely." She looked up to the officer, nodding, "Thanks."
7:33 PM [William Taylor] "Thank you for your help, officer," Will says, and then moves over to stand off to the side.
7:34 PM [Shelly Saville] "Thank you," Shelly says. She glances over at Hugh. "Couldn't they be dumb or mean? 'And' seems ... depressing." She does her best impression of a shrinking violet over by Will.
7:34 PM [phidya] ::He nods a little:: Going to be a long night. Yous guys behave and dont make me have to come back there alright?
7:35 PM [Hugh McLaughlin] Hugh nods to the bloke behind the desk then shrugs. "It's the sad fact of a cop's life, according to Dad. You spend ninety five percent of your time dealing with the dumbest five percent of the population, doing mean things to each other."
7:36 PM [Sophia Bruneau] Sophia did a salute, force of habit that probably didn't make the officer any more confident in their group, "Sir yes sir!" and found herself a spot by the wall, still occasionally tapping her sneaker, or knocking her knuckles on the wall.
7:36 PM [William Taylor] "Then my dad would get to deal with them, after here," Will adds.
7:36 PM [Hugh McLaughlin] Hugh happily chatters away while waiting.
7:37 PM [phidya] ::Ramirez comes up to the front shortly. Dressed in a cheap black suit with an overly laundered shirt and a faded black tie. Robert Ramirez stands at an even 5'9, not a tall man but not the shortest of men. He was clean shaven with a tightly trimmed haircut. Despite the age of his suit, he was clean and well kept. Though the dark circles under his deep brown eyes and the smell of the blacker than black coffee in his hand hinted he worked maybe a bit too much::
7:37 PM Adair Forsythe leaned against the wall near Shelly and William quiet as he listened to the conversation "Last time I was in a police station was 6 or so years ago? Getting booked." he grinned a bit briefly
7:39 PM [Hugh McLaughlin] "G'day, Detective." Hugh offers a hand. "Hugh McLaughlin, Shelly Saville, Adair Forsythe, William Taylor and Sophia Bruneau. We're here from the school, per your request."
7:39 PM [Det. Ramirez] Doesnt exactly inspire a vote of confidence. ::Despite the obvious latino look, Ramirez didnt carry a stereotypical accent. He was one of the lucky few with one of those non-accents::
7:39 PM [Det. Ramirez] ::His comment was in response to Adair::
7:39 PM [Sophia Bruneau] Sophia stood straight as she sensed Detective Ramirez coming in, literally sniffing in an attempt to smell anything off about him, and then smiled, nodding, "Sophia Bruneau at your service."
7:39 PM [William Taylor] "Pleased to meet you, sir," Will says, offering his hand.
7:40 PM [Det. Ramirez] ::He holds out a hand to shake Hugh and then the rest if they'll shake:: Detective Robert Ramirez. Glad you guys came out. I think I have enough chairs for the ladies in my office. Hope you guys dont mind standing.
7:40 PM [Hugh McLaughlin] "Reckon we'll manage."
7:40 PM [Det. Ramirez] ::Ramirez smelled like coffee, and a variety of fried foods and fast food meats::
7:40 PM [Shelly Saville] Shelly nods to the Detective, when her name is mentioned. She glances at Adair, but just says, "Whatever works."
7:41 PM [William Taylor] "Standing is fine."
7:41 PM Adair Forsythe looked over at the Detective a moment with his dimly glowing blue eyes "Served my time, fighting the good fight now..." he nods a bit briefly and shakes the Detectives hand.
7:41 PM [Sophia Bruneau] Sophia gladly shook the man's hand, actually putting on her coat, than have it rest on her shoulders, before nodding in acknowledgement.
7:43 PM [Det. Ramirez] ::He has a firm handshake with the men, but is gentler with the ladies. He'd look Adair over:: Stay on this side of justice and we wont have a problem. ::he nods then waves them back to his office. It was neat for the most part except for stacks of paper on his desk. There were two old chairs across the desk and barely enough room for the group to all fit in::
7:45 PM [Shelly Saville] Shelly goes with the flow and takes one of the chairs. In his office, she folds up her sunglasses and tucks them away, revealing her red irises.
7:45 PM Adair Forsythe skitters up the wall toward the ceiling to give the rest of the group more room as he sort of just clings there waiting for the briefing and such.
7:45 PM [Hugh McLaughlin] Hugh files in, looking at the walls uncomfortably. He leans off to one side.
7:45 PM [William Taylor] Will finds another corner in the small office, to stay out of the way.
7:46 PM [Det. Ramirez] ::Ramirez watches Adair, but not with surprise just dull acceptance as if he'd seen stranger:: Just don't make a mess up there, I dont think it's been dusted...ever, and I dont plan on starting.
7:46 PM [Sophia Bruneau] Sophia stood back to let the rest of the group filter in, walking in and waiting for a moment of quiet to knock on the door sill with her knuckle, so that she could get a feel for the room through radar.
7:46 PM Adair Forsythe looks at the others a moment and shrugs briefly
7:48 PM [Det. Ramirez] When you come in could you shut the door miss?
7:48 PM [Sophia Bruneau] "Of course." Sophia nodded, pulling the door closed behind her.
7:50 PM [Det. Ramirez] I'm bringing the group of you as consultants or experts. I can't be responsible if you get hurt. I'd have avoided this all together if I could but I have a hard time convincing people to give a damn about District X.
7:51 PM [Hugh McLaughlin] "That'll change." Hugh says with a philosophical smile, then he shrugs it off. "What can we do for you, Detective?"
7:52 PM [William Taylor] "We're fairly sturdy, sir, we're glad to help."
7:53 PM [Sophia Bruneau] Sophia smiled, "We've got a good team set up here... I bet we can handle whatever may come our way."
7:53 PM Shelly Saville nods.
7:54 PM Adair Forsythe just nods as well hearing the comments from William and Sophia
7:54 PM [Det. Ramirez] ::He organizes his papers:: I've got fifteen missing children from the District. All around 13 or 14, all of which were abducted before manifestation. I dont know if the children are going to be mutants or not, but their parents are all mutants.
7:57 PM [Shelly Saville] "Ugh, that really doesn't sound good."
7:57 PM [Hugh McLaughlin] "Missing, or is there confirmation of abduction? Forced entry in their homes, sighted being dragged away, something?" Hugh's brow crinkles as he thinks about it.
7:58 PM [Adair Forsythe] "Any particular area they are from? Any similarities other than the age bit?"
7:58 PM [Sophia Bruneau] "How long ago did they disappear?"
8:00 PM [Det. Ramirez] Kids were walking home from school and never made it home. Preliminary searches of the neighborhoods revealed no sign of the children. They've been going missing for months now. It was looking bad until we had a breakthrough. One of the children escaped. I've asked his parents to bring him here tonight so we can maybe get him to talk. He's scared out of his mind and I didnt want to make it worse on him. I figure he might feel safer talking to other mutants.
8:00 PM [Det. Ramirez] The kids were all from District X.
8:01 PM [Sophia Bruneau] Sophia nodded, "OK... I bet I can get him to open up... Empathy has very good uses in things like this. It can be much more personal."
8:01 PM [Hugh McLaughlin] Hugh nods. "Since we're this far in anyway... mind if I look over the reports while Sophia and William do their thing?"
8:01 PM [Det. Ramirez] ::He offers over the reports to Hugh:: None of this leaves my office.
8:03 PM [Hugh McLaughlin] "Not a problem, just going to see what connections I can make... I have a talent for finding the nexus between disparate things." Hugh smiles a little and grabs the folders.
8:04 PM [Shelly Saville] "I'll ... tag along with Will and Sophia. I think you're a better speed reader."
8:05 PM [Det. Ramirez] ::He nods and stands making his way to the door:: What I'm about to say is common sense but this is a kid, he's been through a lot. If you go to far I'll step in and stop you. His parents will be watching so keep that in mind.
8:06 PM Adair Forsythe slips off the wall and follows after the group going to the interview area to meet the kid.
8:07 PM [Sophia Bruneau] Sophia nodded, "Sir yes sir." She said again, following behind, and preparing to give off an empathetic warmth.
8:07 PM [Hugh McLaughlin] Once a seat becomes available, Hugh settles in to skimming over the reports, trying to make connections or find avenues of enquiry that may have been missed while the others head out to see the kid.
8:08 PM [William Taylor] "We're not going to go too far, sir, we understand he's a victim here."
8:09 PM Shelly Saville nods, following along.
8:09 PM [Det. Ramirez] ::nods:: Just have to cover my bases. ::he stops at a door and puts his hand on the knob:: His name is Jacob. He's one of the thirteen year olds ::opens the door letting the students in::
8:11 PM Adair Forsythe would let the others enter the room first as he is pretty much just an observer here he would follow them in and look at the kid a moment with his dimly glowing blue eyes and would slip off to the side to let the others do what they needed to do.
8:12 PM [William Taylor] Will enters, sits down... "Hello, Jacob, my name is Will Taylor... we're here to stop the person who took you."
8:12 PM [Shelly Saville] Shelly also takes up an out of the way place, giving a little wave as she settles in.
8:13 PM [Sophia Bruneau] Sophia paused before stepping in to focus on projecting warmth... Acting like a friend... Preparing herself. [10d8 for a "Warm demeanor" asset]
8:14 PM [Det. Ramirez] ::The boy sat quietly in a chair with a mountain dew and a comic in front of him. He wore a pair of ratty jeans and a tank top with a hoodie that hung low off his back. He had a pair of dragon fly like wings protruding from his back. His eyes were iridescent yellow and shined copper in the light.
8:16 PM [William Taylor] Will looks at the wings, then to Jacob's face. "They're amazing... do you like to fly?"
8:16 PM [Det. Ramirez] ((14d8, asset fails))
8:16 PM [Det. Ramirez] ::He looks up at Will:: My mom doesnt want me to. She's afraid I'll fall and get hurt.
8:18 PM [Sophia Bruneau] And then Sophia stepped in, though she couldn't keep focused enough to actually have a warm aura, she did whatever she could to act warm. She stepped in, tapping on the doorsil, and seeming slightly surprised at the large protrusions from his back. Then she smiled.
8:18 PM [William Taylor] "It's a mom's job to take care of her children. Maybe with her permission I could help you some time... flying is a wonderful thing, it'd be a shame for you to have wings and not be able to use them."
8:18 PM Adair Forsythe nods a bit in agreement with William
8:20 PM [Det. Ramirez] You...you fly too? ::he sat up straight, interested::
8:20 PM [Shelly Saville] "He's very good at it. He takes his friends, too."
8:20 PM [William Taylor] "I do..." Will says, and floats a bit off the chair, before landing back on it. "No wings though."
8:20 PM [Adair Forsythe] "William does a lot yeah...I can occasionally if someone gives me a boost to get airborne then I can glide around...its really fun."
8:21 PM [Det. Ramirez] Maybe if you guys came she'd let me fly. ::he ponders::
8:23 PM [William Taylor] "I have another ability too, if you'd allow me... I can see what you saw, when you were captured. Your memories... maybe even see something that would help us catch the person who took you."
8:24 PM [Sophia Bruneau] Sophia stood back, watching, as she had no flight powers of her own. And then Will got to the point, but she just continued listening.
8:26 PM [Det. Ramirez] ::He frowns:: Will it hurt?
8:27 PM [William Taylor] "No, except I'll ask you to remember all you can, of what happened... then I can show the memories to the Detective, and my friends, and maybe they'll see things..."
8:29 PM [Det. Ramirez] ::He thinks a bout it a few minutes, his wings flutter a little as he does. His fingers trace the random hero on the cover of his comic then he looks at Will:: A...alright. Can you...find the others with my memories?
8:30 PM [William Taylor] "That's what we're hoping to do, yes."
8:30 PM [Sophia Bruneau] "Hopefully." Sophia answered honestly, giving him a warm smile.
8:30 PM Shelly Saville nods encouragingly.
8:31 PM [Det. Ramirez] Okay ::he nods and offers Will his hands, not really sure what it took::
8:31 PM [Hugh McLaughlin] Readreadread. Hugh continues to shuffle through the reports in the other room. "Interesting..."
8:33 PM [William Taylor] Will starts talking to him, asking him to remember when he got taken, where he was, how he got away, anything he thinks might help... and while he does, Will reads those memories, and broadcasts them to his friends, to see through the boy's eyes... ( telepathy 16, d10, no opps )
8:34 PM [Det. Ramirez] ((13d8, you succeed, and this is what you get:
8:38 PM [Hugh McLaughlin] (15/D8/0 opps. SFX Memory Splicing for Crime Spec. District X Investigation Resource. Senses Power.) Hugh engages his composite mind to look at the problem from multiple perspectives as he tries to find a pattern in the reports and pulls out his smartphone, accessing the database he'd put together on the area to cross reference different points while he searches...
8:41 PM [Det. Ramirez] ::Jacob was walking to school in the early morning. He shoved the toast and jam his mom had made him down his mouth. He glances in a puddle on his way, Jacob had no wings on this day. What happens next is sudden. A hand covers his mouth and he panics, kicking and trying to scream as a prick is felt in his neck, and then the world goes black. A glance in the puddle shows a middle aged white man with dark hair pulling the boy before he passes out. Awake now, hours later, days? You cant tell. Looking down at Jacob is the face of girl, she's filthy but the other kids look to her with respect. She helps him up, dusts him off and makes him stay down until the grogginess fades. All of the children from the files are here in this dark room with iron bars splitting them up into groups of three.::
8:43 PM [William Taylor] Will passes the image of the man to Hugh... ~That's our man, how fast can you find him?~
8:44 PM [Shelly Saville] Shelly bites her lip as the memories flow past...
8:45 PM Sophia Bruneau closed her eyes as she imagined (or felt, depending,) the terror the boy must have felt. She shook her head, "Jesus..."
8:46 PM [Det. Ramirez] ::The days are a blur, things go in a schedule every day. Sleep, food, then he pulls each kid out one at a time to examine and take notes. More sleep, and then it begins again. Then one day he comes down with syringes. He injects five of the kids with it, they cry all night, scared of what he's done. The next day the girl that they all respects begins to manifest fur on her arms. She hides it for a few days before he finds it in his exams. He is delighted and keeps her seperated. Two more kids begin to manifest physical signs of their mutation, and then so does Jacob. All of these four are kept seperate while he watches them manifest. Then he takes them out together, greedy like, and he injects one of them with whatever is in the syringe. The mutation begins to reverse. Horrified the leader girl struggles with another of the kids. Jacob, scared, runs. He runs so fast the house is a blur. He climbs the stairs to a first floor, the building is bare save for various scientific equipment and a box labeled "benetech". He runs up the stairs, to a second, third, and fourth floor. Adrenaline push him as he reaches the roof now. The wind blows in his wings, and free now he flies. He can see home, and school, so close, why are they so close? He flies home::
8:46 PM Adair Forsythe took in a breath as he shifted a bit his thoughts go to the memories as he zones out a bit.
8:48 PM [Det. Ramirez] ((9d8, exceptional puts Hugh's roll at a d10)) ::Hugh finds that the children all come from the same school, and the same government housing apartment. They all walk to school and something strange in a file on his desk but not in the missing children's report. A single container of the cure was stolen, but not reported by the clinic. It was instead mentioned in passing by a nurse to Det. Ramirez, they wanted to keep it hush hush for some reason.::
8:48 PM Sophia Bruneau bit her lip, going back to silence during the escape... The horrific forced mutation and reverse mutations.
8:48 PM [William Taylor] Will keeps it off his face, but through the link, his friends feel the rage under the surface... ~He's curing them.~ He thinks.
8:49 PM [Shelly Saville] Shelly's eyes narrow. "Aw, he-- heck." She rests her hand on her stomach.
8:49 PM [Hugh McLaughlin] ~Sec, I'm nearly onto something... I had a feeling about these kids going missing, especially with our boy here manifesting after he was abducted. Give me a moment.~
8:50 PM [Det. Ramirez] ::Jacob looks at Will:: Did...did that help?
8:50 PM Adair Forsythe looks over at the others a moment a rather unpleasant look on his face before he hears the kid and his face goes neutral again as he looks over at the kid a moment.
8:51 PM Sophia Bruneau looked to Jacob, "I'm sorry you had to go through this... But you've already helped. A lot." She gave a small reassuring smile.
8:51 PM [William Taylor] "Very much", Will says, smiling for the boy, a smile that doesn't quite reach his eyes.
8:51 PM [Adair Forsythe] ~This sort of stuff needs to stop...they can't keep the cure supplies secure and now folks are stealing it...this is like what happened with the Orphanages too...~
8:52 PM [Det. Ramirez] ::He looks relieved:: Can can you guys save them? ::he looks ready to cry:: I ran away, but you can save them right?
8:52 PM [Adair Forsythe] "We will do everything we can kid, you did good."
8:52 PM [Hugh McLaughlin] ~Okay, the local clinic had a cure supply stolen, but it's not been reported. They were all snatched on the way to a single school, so he doesn't move far I'd guess. I don't think it's just about cure, but contriol of mutation, he forced them to manifest too...~
8:52 PM [Det. Ramirez] ::He shakes his head:: I ran away, I could have helped them.
8:53 PM Adair Forsythe shakes his head and looks at the kid a moment "No, you would have likely been recaptured and we never would have found out about this...running and getting help now is the right thing to do this time kid, be proud of that."
8:54 PM [Sophia Bruneau] "Don't say that..." Sophia said, stepping up, "I believe you may have just saved them... And managed to stop that from happening to any of the others."
8:54 PM [Shelly Saville] "You did all the right things." Shelly straightens up. "Sometimes running away is the bravest thing of all."
8:54 PM [Det. Ramirez] Really? ::he sniffles a bit:: So, maybe I did save them?
8:55 PM [William Taylor] Will looks back over the memory in his own mind, memories of the roof, of Jacob taking off... to see if he can see anything that gives a clue what building he took off from, where in town it might be...
8:55 PM Adair Forsythe extends a hand to the kid "Was nice meeting you your a brave kid."
8:55 PM [Hugh McLaughlin] ~I can find that Will, I've been exploring this district for the last month or more.~
8:56 PM [Det. Ramirez] ::Will and the rest have a good overhead look of where the building was in relation to the school and his home::
8:56 PM [Sophia Bruneau] "Exactly." Sophia smiled, "That and more. Without you, this could've continued for much much longer."
8:57 PM [William Taylor] ~Look familiar, Hugh?~
8:57 PM [Hugh McLaughlin] (Does it? =D)
8:58 PM [Det. Ramirez] ::Hugh doesnt fly, he does know about where the two buildings are, maybe with something more to give him a hand, he could figure it out::
8:59 PM [Hugh McLaughlin] He rolls his eyes and brings up his map on his smartphone... smarter than people phone.
9:00 PM [Det. Ramirez] ::Ahh, a map, a fabulous invention, Hugh has it narrowed down to a few buildings. He'd likely be able to nail down which being there aren't many four story buildings in the state of repair Jacob saw::
9:00 PM [Hugh McLaughlin] ~You know, sometimes I see so much I can't see anything at all.~ Humour in the link.
9:01 PM [Hugh McLaughlin] ~I've got a location. Adair, you want to check it out, figure out how we should go in, Mister Infiltrator?~
9:01 PM [William Taylor] "Thank you so much, Jacob. You're a hero," Will says, before standing. "Detective, we'd like to go now."
9:02 PM [Det. Ramirez] ::Ramirez nods:: I'll come with you ::he goes over to Jacob and hugs him:: You did good little man. I'll get your mom in here alright? We'll save them and bring them home.
9:03 PM [Hugh McLaughlin] Hugh puts the files aside and gets ready to meet them in the hall.
9:03 PM [Sophia Bruneau] Sophia gave one last smile, "It was nice meeting you. You're a brave kid." She said, tapping the back of his hand before she walked out to meet Hugh.
9:03 PM [Adair Forsythe] ~Sure William, when we get there we can figure out the best way to get in there...did anyone notice any sort of security...I didn't catch any...~
9:04 PM [Det. Ramirez] ::He smiles a little at the students:: Thank you.
9:04 PM [Shelly Saville] Shelly gives Jacob another small wave and follows along.
9:04 PM [William Taylor] "Jacob? Here's my number... ask your mom if it's okay if I come teach you to fly, some day," Will says, and *thinks* his phone number to the young man...
9:06 PM [Hugh McLaughlin] "Okay, Detective. It's ### ****** street, just around the corner from the school. You know the place?"
9:06 PM Adair Forsythe moves out of the room after the others as they get ready to go check the place out
9:07 PM [Det. Ramirez] ::He nods:: Calling in the warrant on the way. ::he heads out of the room and to the parking garage doing just that::
9:08 PM [Det. Ramirez] ::Jacob nods to Will:: Thank you, ::he hugs Will::
9:08 PM [Hugh McLaughlin] Hugh follows along and piles into whatever vehicle(s) it is we're using.
9:09 PM [Hugh McLaughlin] "Good work, by the way, Will." He claps him on the shoulder.
9:09 PM [Sophia Bruneau] "Yeah, Will. I see why everyone looks up to you." She smiled, following behind Hugh.
9:09 PM [William Taylor] Will hugs him back, then heads out with the group... "Thanks, Hugh, you too... it was just a face, and a building. You knowing this place makes a lot of difference."
9:10 PM [Shelly Saville] "I just hope ..." Shelly trails off.
9:10 PM [Hugh McLaughlin] "Making a difference is what we're all here for." Hugh shrugs off the compliment and defelcts it around to the rest of the group.
9:10 PM [William Taylor] Will frowns a bit at Sophia's comment, "No one should look up to me, Sophia. We all have different skills..."
9:12 PM [Sophia Bruneau] Sophia "hrmmed" slightly, shrugging.
9:12 PM [Det. Ramirez] ::The detective pauses when he gets to his car:: I've got a warrent. We're going to go in, get our perp and get the kids to medical care as soon as possible. If you come in, I need you to promise you wont do anything stupid and remember these kids are our priority. Let me worry about getting this bastard if he tries to run.
9:13 PM [Hugh McLaughlin] "Let our man go in first and get a look in the place. He can feed it back to us via Will. If we need to go in fast to keep the kids safe a few of us have gifts in that regard."
9:13 PM [Sophia Bruneau] Sophia nodded, "You have a med kit in here, Detective? I'm skilled in first aid and diagnosis if it's needed."
9:14 PM Adair Forsythe looks over at the Detective a moment "I am a bit of a infiltrator...getting in quiet and such and picking up any hidden dangers is sort of part of what I do..."
9:15 PM [William Taylor] "We're with you, sir, we don't want to do anything that'll interfere with a proper arrest."
9:17 PM [Shelly Saville] Shelly glances at the Detective. "We'll play nice. We're worried about the kids, too." On the other side of the car from the detective, she pulls out a small tube, like an autoinjector. She considers it a moment before jabbing herself in the leg before taking a seat.
9:17 PM [Det. Ramirez] Which man is going in first? ::he looks at them::
9:17 PM [Hugh McLaughlin] Hugh points to the guy with the glowing blue eyes.
9:17 PM [Adair Forsythe] "That would be me"
9:17 PM [Det. Ramirez] ::looks at Adair:: No lethal force, I can't emphasize that enough.
9:18 PM [Adair Forsythe] "I don't do the lethal force thing..."
9:18 PM [Adair Forsythe] "Don't worry I won't do anything to risk the kids or the case against the one who did this."
9:19 PM [Hugh McLaughlin] "We'll get him, Detective. You can count on us."
9:19 PM [Det. Ramirez] Good. Alright you can go in and scout. Don't do anything too crazy by yourself. When you find him call us in. I'll make the arrest.
9:20 PM Sophia Bruneau nodded as the plan was laid out, "...And tell me if any of the kids look like they're hurt. I want to get a look at them and see if any of them are seriously hurt physically... Emotional and mental help can come later..."
9:20 PM [Adair Forsythe] "I will be linked up by William, Anything I see and such can be fed through the link"
9:20 PM Adair Forsythe looked over at William a moment "Right?"
9:21 PM [William Taylor] "Absolutely," Will says, then adds, ~we can watch through your eyes.~
9:22 PM [Adair Forsythe] ~Yeah, figured just a heads up might be a little unsettling at first...lots of sensory data you know?~
9:23 PM [Hugh McLaughlin] Hugh smiles. "Yeah..."
9:23 PM [Sophia Bruneau] ~Ooh.. I'll be able to see thermal. That'll be new.~
9:23 PM [Shelly Saville] "If this guy starts tossing Cure around ... get behind me until Will can disarm him. Gently, of course."
9:32 PM [Det. Ramirez] Alright, lets load up and go.
9:33 PM Shelly Saville buckles up.
9:33 PM [Hugh McLaughlin] Hugh is ready to rock.
9:34 PM Adair Forsythe climbs into the vehicle a rather serious expression on his face as he sits quietly till they arrive
9:35 PM [Det. Ramirez] ::The detective leads the way, though he slows a block a way and turns his lights off. He parks his car in front of the building and shuts it off. The neighborhood is run down. There are buildings that look alike here, though the target is clear, it's the only one with all it's windows intact::
9:36 PM [Adair Forsythe] "Which floor do we want to start with? Likely he has them in a basement I figure yeah?"
9:36 PM [Sophia Bruneau] Sophia closed her eyes, cracking the window so she can smell the smells, and listen closely.
9:37 PM [William Taylor] "In from the roof, work your way down quietly?"
9:37 PM [Adair Forsythe] "That's what I was thinking."
9:38 PM [Det. Ramirez] ::It smells crazy sterile in the building, unnaturally so::
9:39 PM Adair Forsythe looked at the others a moment before slipping out of the vehicle he looks at the target building a moment in thermal to see if there are any camera's or other electronics before he jogs toward the building and leaps up onto a wall and skitters toward the roof to make his entry. ~Here we go~
9:39 PM Sophia Bruneau closed the window, ~Reminds me of a hospital. Watch yourself, Adair~
9:39 PM [Det. Ramirez] ::Aside that the building is in one piece, outwardly it's not secure at all, like he was trying to ensure it just blended in::
9:40 PM [Shelly Saville] Shelly looks out the window, her red eyes intent as she waits.
9:41 PM [Sophia Bruneau] (Would Sophia have an idea of what the man smells like from the memory? He had a hand on Jacob's face.)
9:42 PM [Det. Ramirez] ::The door on the roof is there as Jacob saw it, closed now of course::
9:42 PM [Det. Ramirez] ((like neoprene gloves and a doctor's office))
9:43 PM [Sophia Bruneau] ~His smell is very similar to that of the rest of the building. It'd be hard to pinpoint.~
9:43 PM Adair Forsythe slipped on his gloves and checked the door to see if it was locked if so he would attempt to pick it open otherwise he would just open it up and head down into the building proper.
9:43 PM [Shelly Saville] ~Can you find them, Will?~
9:44 PM [Det. Ramirez] ::The door was locked with the deadbolt but not on the knob::
9:44 PM [Adair Forsythe] ~Door is Dead Bolted will have to go through a window...~
9:45 PM [William Taylor] Will reaches out with his mind, to see if he can sense the minds of the children inside at all... ( 11, d10, no opps )
9:45 PM Adair Forsythe moved to the top floor and attempts unlock one of the windows then slip inside...
9:46 PM [Det. Ramirez] ::He feels them in there, scared, angry, so many emotions, there were sixteen children now. He'd grabbed another::
9:47 PM [Hugh McLaughlin] Hugh moves along with the others and into position, there's little he can add for now so he leaves things to the experts.
9:47 PM [William Taylor] ~They're in there... I count 16. Sophia, it's going to be rough in there, where they are... they're really scared...~
9:49 PM [Det. Ramirez] ::Adair tries three windows before he finds one unlocked on the third floor::
9:49 PM [Adair Forsythe] ~I'm In, will check rooms as I go then get the front door open~
9:50 PM [Shelly Saville] ~Where's Herr Doctor? Or whatever he is.~
9:50 PM Adair Forsythe does just that checking rooms as he went while watching for cameras and other security measures sticking to the ceiling as much as possible his senses flipping through his various senses as he goes.
9:50 PM [Sophia Bruneau] ~...Only send me in if things go really bad then...~ Uncertain fear traveled on her thoughts ~...I bet I can channel it. Before I overstim, I mean~
9:51 PM [Det. Ramirez] ::Adair passes assorted research equipment. Data as well pinned up on boards with whiteboards detailing his research. Pictures of the children by each set of research. Each tracking manifestation and the implementation of the cure, not just in children who'd manifested recently but in children who had not yet manifested.
9:52 PM [Adair Forsythe] ((note my senses and stuff are being sent across the link so the others are seeing this too))
9:52 PM [William Taylor] Will takes slow, even breaths, watching Adair's view of the house.
9:53 PM [Det. Ramirez] ::There's everything in the way of dedicated research, even mention of the control children.::
9:54 PM Adair Forsythe was disgusted by what he was seeing they probably felt it over the link but he was being professional and kept on going until each floor was cleared to the ground level so Adair could let the others in.
9:54 PM [William Taylor] "Lots of evidence, Detective," Will finally says in a measured tone.
9:54 PM [Det. Ramirez] ::The detective nods:: Good.
9:55 PM [Hugh McLaughlin] Hugh studies the mental images, dragging the knowledge of his alternate lives out to gain greater understanding to figure out exactly what it all is trying to achieve.
9:57 PM [Shelly Saville] Shelly blinks, staring off into what Adair is seeing. "There's never just one mad scientist, is there?" she murmurs.
9:58 PM [William Taylor] "Oh, Shelly... I didn't even think. Are you okay?"
9:58 PM [phidya] ::Adair reaches the first floor as the back door could be heard shutting. A voice is heard as he speaks into a phone:: No, it's fine. I'm glad to help out at the clinic. It's a break from keeping those residents in order. I feel like I'm helping some one more there.
9:59 PM [Adair Forsythe] ~Unlocking the door...someone just closed the back door...when you guys get here I will check the back Sound good?~
10:00 PM [Shelly Saville] "I'm not the one locked up. I'll feel a lot better when those kids are safe." She slips out of her coat and gets ready to move.
10:00 PM Adair Forsythe kept his head tilted toward the sound the voice was heard hoping to pick up the vibrations, he would get the front door unlocked for the rest of the team ~Alright door is unlocked~
10:01 PM [Sophia Bruneau] "Bring out those who are hurt first, please." Sophia nodded, realizing she won't be able to help this time.
10:02 PM [Hugh McLaughlin] (18/D8/0 opps. Memory Splicing Medical Spec, Push My Limits to double Senses. PP Spent on extra total die.) Hugh reaches across dimensions, trying out any of his various alternate lives until he finds one that can make sense of the research shown in the link . 10:02 PM [phidya] ::He could be heard setting down keys and talking further on the phone:: Oh, no, I'm not busy tonight. Just have a few things to work on then I'm headed to bed. I have a project I've been working.
10:03 PM [William Taylor] ~Sophia, you and I can cover the back, it sounds like he just came in. Everyone else, join Adair at the front.~ Will thinks, and then says, "Detective, the suspect just entered the building from the back."
10:03 PM [William Taylor] "Adair has opened the front door for us."
10:04 PM [phidya] ((14d8)) ::Hugh realizes he's researching the effectiveness of the cure on the recently changed, and those who had not changed yet, to see if it really does work. Though the ends could be further, to see if he could reactivate the mutant genes again after the cure or no. There were hints in the research but he wasn't there, not yet::
10:04 PM [phidya] ::The detective nods:: I'm going around the back so he doesn't run back that way. ::he draws his side arm and runs around back::
10:04 PM [Sophia Bruneau] ~Awesome.~ Sophia nodded, ~Sounds like this guy is doing it alone. Home made science... Horrible.~
10:05 PM [Shelly Saville] Shelly slips out of the car, crouches low, and moves to the front to meet up with Adair.
0:06 PM [Hugh McLaughlin] (For all the rest of you, seeing the internal working of Hugh's mind through the link while he reaches across space and time is bound to be... interesting. =P ) Hugh ports into the building next to Adair, using his linked senses to pinpoint him.
10:06 PM [phidya] ::The man wanders out of the back of the building towards the basement door:: Alright, I'll see you tomorrow at the clinic. Good night Doctor.
10:06 PM [Shelly Saville] ~I don't want him down with the kids~
10:07 PM [William Taylor] Will steps out of the car, and waits for Sophia, so they can head to the back.
10:07 PM Adair Forsythe is clinging to the ceiling above Hugh he nods a bit and skitters off to try and close the gap on the Doctor before he can get downstairs ~Moving to try and intercept before he gets downstairs then~
10:08 PM [phidya] ((roll me covert
10:08 PM [Sophia Bruneau] Sophia stepped out of the car, following Will to the back, keeping her head low and movements as quiet as possible.
10:08 PM [Adair Forsythe] ((Total: 12 effect d10 1 Opp))
10:09 PM [William Taylor] Will grabs hold of Sophia's hand, and the two of them float off toward the back of the building to help the detective...
10:09 PM [William Taylor] ~Quieter than walking,~ he thinks to her with a bit of humor in his tone.
10:09 PM [phidya] ::Adair gets above him the doctor seems oblivious::
10:10 PM [Adair Forsythe] ~Here we go~
10:11 PM [Hugh McLaughlin] Hugh stays still for now, if he doesn't move he can avoid noise... hopefully.
10:11 PM Adair Forsythe reaches down from his position on the ceiling and attempts to grapple the doctor so he cannot use his arms to reach for anything while the others move in!
10:11 PM [Adair Forsythe] ((Going for a complication Grappled!))
10:11 PM [Sophia Bruneau] ~Probably, yeah.~ Sophia nodded, preparing herself for whatever may happen. The detective's side arm didn't help much.
10:12 PM [phidya] ((roll it
10:12 PM [Adair Forsythe] ((Total 15 effect d8 0 Opp)) ((Used 1 pp for 3 dice total))
10:13 PM [phidya] ((12d6, he's at d8 grappled comp, put your signs up))
10:14 PM [Adair Forsythe] ((Putting Shelly on deck if I can))
10:14 PM [phidya] ::The doctor falls ot the ground tackled by Adair. His hand goes to a pocket and comes back out with a covered syringe:: ((Shelly up))
10:15 PM [Shelly Saville] (Will up)
10:15 PM [Adair Forsythe] ~Careful he has a syringe...I got him in a grapple at the moment...~
10:16 PM [Shelly Saville] Shelly sprints for where Adair is and grapples for the syringe... (20, d8, no opp, spent 1pp for 3rd)
10:18 PM [phidya] ((19d8, 2 dp spent, doom pool at 1d8, doctor is grappled for d10)) ::Shelly rushes to the stuggle and helps Adair hold back the man and his syringe::
10:20 PM [William Taylor] Will drops quietly to the ground with Sophia, and thinks at the man, ~It's over.~ He wraps his telekinesis around the man, listening to the edges of his thoughts, so everywhere he tries to push back against Adair, that's where Will helps the most... ( using telekinesis and telepathy with multipower to increase "grappled" complication, spending PP for third die, 21, d8, no opps )
10:20 PM [William Taylor] (Sophia next)
10:22 PM [Sophia Bruneau] (Hugh up)
10:22 PM [phidya] ((5d8, gives you triple for d12+ he's comped out)) ::The doctor cant move, his hand is still solidly around the syringe but well, it'd be nothing to take it from him::
10:22 PM [Sophia Bruneau] (Ah. No more turns, then?)
10:24 PM [phidya] ((out of combat yes :D
10:24 PM [Hugh McLaughlin] Hugh ports over next to them and plucks the syringe out while th doc is held. "No more of that.."
10:25 PM [phidya] NO! ::he cries out:: You dont know what that is!
10:25 PM Adair Forsythe continues to keep the man grappled "Detective? He is detained" he hangs from the ceiling as he looks toward the basement. He was eager to get down in the basement to check on the kids but stayed put for now...he looked at the doctor "So what is it then?"
10:26 PM [phidya] ::The detective comes in and pulls handcuffs from his belt as he reholsters his weapon. He pauses when he sees who it is:: You!
10:26 PM [Shelly Saville] Shelly steps back and blinks. "Who is he?"
10:26 PM [William Taylor] Will keeps him held, waiting for the detective to cuff him... "You know him, Detective?"
10:27 PM [Hugh McLaughlin] "I could take a couple of guesses, one of them leads me to think it wasn't my friends you intended to use it on just now." Hugh makes sure the cover is secure and tucks the syringe in his coat.
10:27 PM [Shelly Saville] *after he's cuffed.
10:27 PM [phidya] ::He frowns and cuffs him:: He works at one of the free clinics in the area. He's looked after these kids and their parents because they couldn't afford better.
10:28 PM [Sophia Bruneau] Sophia stepped inside, simply watching, and shook her head, "Sickening..." She mumbled, then looked to Hugh, "Hey... Can you get the kids? Bring the ones who might be seriously hurt to me."
10:29 PM [Hugh McLaughlin] "...the other reason we're operating in District X, to stop this sort of practice." Hugh frowns and then nods to Sophia, heading for te basement.
10:29 PM Adair Forsythe skittered down into the basement area after the guy was cuffed and made sure it was safe as he went
10:30 PM [William Taylor] Will stays out with the detective and the cuffed doctor, just in case...
10:30 PM [Shelly Saville] Shelly follows after Adair ...
10:30 PM [William Taylor] "So what was it in the syringe?"
10:32 PM [phidya] ::The detective read him his rights as Adair made his way down to the basement. Six dark iron barred cells contained sixteen children all of which were filthy and slightly malnurished. Five of the children had manifested their abilities, the others were overly normal. All but one. One of them looked something like the wrong end of Jekyl and Hyde. Her body rippled with overly developed muscles edged with unsighlty tumors that bulged out of her skin. Tiny dragonfly wings hung limply on her back and she had a soft bit of peach fuzz all over her body. She seems vaguely familiar::
10:33 PM [Hugh McLaughlin] ~You're all seeing this?~
10:33 PM [Adair Forsythe] ~Oh no...~
10:33 PM [Sophia Bruneau] ~I think that's the girl~
10:33 PM [phidya] ::The man eyes William:: Everything I've been working towards, and you're ruining my work!
10:33 PM [Shelly Saville] "Hi, sweetie. We're here to get you out."
10:34 PM [William Taylor] "You're giving all their abilities to the girl. Why?"
10:34 PM [phidya] ::She looks at Shelly with stubbornness in her eyes:: Get. Them. ::she points, her words grunted out as if it hurt to speak::
10:34 PM [Hugh McLaughlin] ~Yes, he's learned not just how to cure mutation, but how to awaken it in others, to take it from one mutant and apply it to another.... he was going to stick himself while Adair was wrestling him.~
10:35 PM [Shelly Saville] Shelly nods and starts opening the cages, using brute strength if a key isn't at hand.
10:35 PM [Adair Forsythe] "You all are safe now, the Detective arrested the main that did this...we are going to get you all out of here and get you all check on so we can get you all back to your families."
10:35 PM [Adair Forsythe] *man
10:35 PM [Sophia Bruneau] ~Bring the girl up last. She's a strong one... Again, most hurt first~
10:36 PM Adair Forsythe let Shelly bust the children out he looked at them all briefly with his dimly glowing blue eyes and would help those that needed it up stairs carrying them if necessary
10:37 PM [phidya] ::The cages open and most of the kids run up the stairs away, a few stay in the back of the cells afraid.::
10:38 PM [phidya] ::The girl sits and waits. She seems to be breathing heavily and in a good deal of pain as the tumors on her grow and the overly large muscles decrease in size::
10:38 PM Sophia Bruneau stayed near the corners of the room, wanting to be able to see the children without overstimming. She pulled out any of the particularily bad ones aside to check, but mostly waited for the girl.
10:39 PM [Hugh McLaughlin] ~I'm going to hold onto this and take it to McCoy. I want to copy as much of this research as we can before it goes into evidence too. It may hold the key to curing the cure. Keep Ramirez busy while I go back in.~
10:39 PM [phidya] ::There in the middle of all the cages is a desk with notes on it, some with letter head even, and a badge from the doctor's day job at a university::
10:39 PM [William Taylor] When they come up, Will helps collect them, reassuring them that they're safe now...
10:39 PM [Shelly Saville] "Don't worry, it's ok." She doesn't press the scared children. Going to the last girl, she says, "It may not show on the outside, but what happened to you? Something like that happened to me. And the friends with me? They saved me." She breaks open the cage and reaches out. "Let me check on you, sweetie. You helped Jacob escape."
10:40 PM [phidya] ::Seeing a detective there and the doctor in cuffs two of the boys try to kick him while the girls hide behind Sophia, flocking naturally to another woman::
10:41 PM Adair Forsythe looks over at the girl a moment "It's going to be okay." he looked at some of the frightened children and would crouch down infront of them "Its okay...Me and my friends are from a school for mutants...Jacob let us know where you all were..." he looked at some of the frightened children "I will wait till your ready to leave okay? But your safe now..."
10:41 PM [Shelly Saville] (11, d8, 1opp to diagnose the girl with medical/enh senses)
10:41 PM [phidya] ::The scared children edge out of the cell then run up the stairs. The girl edges out of her cell, a few of the tumors fall off, she seems less in pain as they do::
10:43 PM [phidya] ((5d4, double ex for d10 effect)) ::She looks to have piece meal powers from everyone else. Some of them don't agree with her and are causing her great pain. However the tumors dont seem to be hurting her so much as her attempt at healing herself::
10:43 PM [Sophia Bruneau] "Hey..." Sophia said, attempting to stop the two boys while also fighting off overstim from all the girls crowding around her, "Stop..."
10:43 PM [Hugh McLaughlin] Hugh starts going crazy with is iPhone, taking picture after picture of documents, letters, notes, etc. Not bothering to slow down to read them for now.
10:44 PM [phidya] Is...is he ok? ::the girl asks::
10:44 PM [Shelly Saville] ~The girl is hurting, but her body is fighting it off. But she needs treatment.~ She nods to the girl. "He's fine. And he's got beautiful wings."
10:45 PM [phidya] Good. ::she grimaces as a few more tumors fall off, she looks better, and not as grotesque, she looks closer to herself. Though the fur and the wings stay::
10:45 PM [Adair Forsythe] ~What sort of treatment?~
10:46 PM [William Taylor] Will starts trying to calm down the kids once they're out... "You're okay now, the police are going to get you back to your homes..."
10:46 PM Sophia Bruneau held her breath for a moment at seeing the girl's plight, ~...She might have to be cured... If it's causing that much pain.~ She said tenatively, ~Of course, later. And at her own will~
10:47 PM [phidya] ::The boys grumble and back off at Sophia's request. The girl points Sophia to the table:: Father is...not alone ::she starts to fall, she looks tired::
10:47 PM [phidya] *points SHelly to the table
10:48 PM [Shelly Saville] ~I don't know, but Professor McCoy probably would. She seems to be getting better on her own right now.~ "Father?" she goes over to the table and looks.
10:49 PM Adair Forsythe looks over at the table a moment but then looks around the room to make sure the place is clear he looked over at Shelly a moment "Might be what they call the doctor up there...he was talking to someone about what he was doing tonight remember? Another person in on this possibly."
10:49 PM [phidya] ::The table contained correspondance from a company only titled "Origins". It was about his research and findings.::
10:49 PM [phidya] N...no, he is my father. Not theirs.
10:49 PM [Hugh McLaughlin] *Clickclick*
10:50 PM [Adair Forsythe] "Origins...damn it..."
10:50 PM Sophia Bruneau turned to the girls flocking around her, "You'll be going home soon... OK?" She gave them a small smile, and it seemed odd being the one in charge, as Sophia was shorter then a good potion of the girls, "Going to see your parents again... You're safe now."
10:51 PM [Shelly Saville] ~Herr Doctor is her father.~ Shelly crouches down and looks at the girl. "We'll keep you safe."
10:51 PM [phidya] ::The girl tries to stumble up the stairs. The children around Sophia cling to her. She was the closest they'd get to mommy right now. Detective Ramirez called for ambulances, parents, and a van to take his prisoner in::
10:52 PM Adair Forsythe looked over at Shelly a moment then to the girl ~Guy has ties to that Origins company ...a few of us had a run in with them before...~
10:53 PM [phidya] ::She smiles up at Shelly:: Not me, them. They need you more. I'm sorry ::she sits on the stairs as the last of the grotesque formations bubble into a tumor and fall off. She looks more or less like herself:: I tried to save them.
10:54 PM [Shelly Saville] "You did great, sweetie. And everyone is being taken care of. It's your turn now. You'll worry me sick if you're too brave." She keeps the girl away from her monster father.
10:55 PM Adair Forsythe wouldn't touch anything but would make sure the place was secure its all he could do now.
10:55 PM [phidya] ::She smiles up at Shelly:: Going to make me? ::trying to joke::
10:55 PM [Hugh McLaughlin] "I'll go over all of the letters and research later and keep you all in the loop." Hugh says, taking one lst snap and putting the letter he was copying back down. "Gods..."
10:56 PM [phidya] ::She tries to get up the stairs with Shelly. Sirens could be heard outside, police and ambulances.::
10:56 PM [Sophia Bruneau] Sophia did whatever she could to keep the children calm, reassuring them that they'd be going home. She seemed to know what she was doing as the mother figure at the moment.
10:57 PM [William Taylor] "Get all of it to Dr. McCoy too, Hugh... if it can help with the Cure research, he'd love to have it..."
10:57 PM [Shelly Saville] "I wouldn't try to take you on in a million years. Hey, you know I have a friend who has a pet dinosaur? He's a little guy, Tinysaurus Rex." She makes sure the girl doesn't fall, but let's her walk on her own while she can.
10:58 PM [phidya] ::She leans heavily on SHelly:: Really? A t-rex? Can I see it?
10:58 PM [Hugh McLaughlin] "That's exactly where it and this concoction is going, Will." Hugh smiles and pats his coat.
10:59 PM [Shelly Saville] "Sure." She flips out her phone and thumbs through the photos. "Whoops, that's Spider-Man. Ah, here he is. If you want, we can see about visiting him in person."
10:59 PM [phidya] ::Ramirez stands:: Take the kids outside, I'm going to need som eone to help me get this trash outside if some one wouldn't mind.
11:00 PM [phidya] ::The Detective looks at Hugh:: Hate to stop you there but the pictures you can keep, everything else needs to stay
11:00 PM Adair Forsythe once the police secure the place Adair would move up near where Shelly and the Girl are and he would stay nearby but would be quiet he was glad everything went smoothly then he saw Ramirez and nodded to him "I can help with that Detective" as he goes about helping the Detective get the trash out of the building...
11:01 PM [William Taylor] "I'll help you with whatever you need, Detective," Will says, seeing Sophia has the kids well in hand without his help...
11:01 PM [phidya] People need to see that the badguys arent mutants, that humans can be just as bad. I'm going to try and put the spotlight on this. They cant just ignore it when kids go missing just because they're mutants or poor.
11:01 PM [Hugh McLaughlin] "Sure thing, Detective. I don't plan on touching another thing here."
11:02 PM [phidya] ::Ramirez nods to Adair and with his help hauls the doctor outside. The children spill out of the building following Sophia. The girl grins at pictures on shelly's phone, especially spiderman::
11:02 PM [phidya] The thing in your jacket, you said concoction. We'll need the vial for evidence.
11:03 PM [Sophia Bruneau] Sophia took the kids outside, talking to them about school and family... Whatever else that would keep them busy. She sat down on the cement of the sidewalk.
11:04 PM [phidya] ::The paramedics arrive and start looking over the kids with Sophia. A police van arrives and they take the doctor, the CIS van is the last to arrive::
11:04 PM [Shelly Saville] Shelly does her best to keep the girl entertained with pictures or the more innocent stories of life at JGS.
11:05 PM [Adair Forsythe] "Good to hear Detective..."
11:05 PM [Adair Forsythe] "Glad we all could help you out with this."
11:06 PM [phidya] Good that I can prove the school has good kids in it.
11:06 PM [phidya] If you need help, within reason, ask.
11:06 PM [Hugh McLaughlin] "Absolutely." Hugh nods and reaches into his coat for a syringe. (22/D8/0 opps. PP on extra total die, Push My Limits to double teleportation. Last PP on a teleport stunt: Dimensional Shell Games.)
11:07 PM [Adair Forsythe] "Same to you Detective...and yeah the School does wonders, Xavier's got me straightened out and now Jean Greys does the same...its only one school though we do as much as we can.."
11:08 PM [William Taylor] "Thank you for letting us help, Detective Ramirez. We're really glad we were able to help save the children..."
11:08 PM [phidya] ((3d4, yeah it's very successful)) ::the detective doesnt have a clue and takes and bags whatever it was Hugh handed him::
11:08 PM [Shelly Saville] "Anytime, detective."
11:09 PM [Hugh McLaughlin] "Here's my card. There's an office over on ****** street, if you ever need help in future."
11:09 PM [Sophia Bruneau] Sophia stayed back for a while to assist the paramedics, and then fell back to the group as everything was taken control off. Waving off a few of the girls with a smile, she looked up, "Great job, everyone."
11:09 PM [phidya] ::with the children in good hands and the badguy locked up, the detective shakes hands:: You all did good. You kept it on the straight and narrow. Thank you for helping me out. You've helped reaffirm my stance on equality between us.
11:10 PM [phidya] ::He nods:: I'll check in, maybe I can be there to help people who want to report something but feel afraid to go to the police.
11:11 PM Adair Forsythe nods a bit to the Detective again not saying any more at that point, he looked over at the others a moment.
11:11 PM [Sophia Bruneau] "All of us are always happy to help, Detective." She nodded.
11:12 PM [Shelly Saville] "We're all neighbors. Holisitically, I mean."
11:12 PM [William Taylor] "If you ever need our talents, just ask... Hugh's setting up something really special here."
11:12 PM [phidya] Everybody has to fight for equality in this country. The good news is that they get to fight, and in the end are successful.
11:14 PM [phidya] ::He nods: I hope it takes off
11:14 PM [Hugh McLaughlin] "One small part. Thank you, Detective, for giving us the opportunity to do some good here."
11:16 PM Adair Forsythe looks at the others again a moment ~Origins Corporation is still doing this sort of research...why can't we get these places closed down...I grow tired of all these corporations abusing mutants...~
11:18 PM [William Taylor] ~They were behind this guy? I remember when you fought at that lab...~
11:18 PM [Hugh McLaughlin] (Okay, I have to go. Hugh will catch up with some medical and science types over the next few days in general RP to go over this stuff and present it to McCoy in thread, in case anyone wants to follow up.)
11:18 PM [Adair Forsythe] ~He had correspondence in the basement on the table with Origins...So guess so...~
11:18 PM [phidya] ((if you want to work on this more thread it, and if the watchers have questions they'll ask me
