At first Ember thought that would actually get away with it and manage to escape outside. However her movement was cut short as quick burst of static sounded the cyborgs displeasure. Ember froze, carefully turning herself back around lest this sound was followed by an attack.

"Others are seeking you. They will bring danger to us. You have brought danger to us by coming here, but also by escaping. They will seek you here. I-I"

Immediately fear tugged at Ember again. She'd made the wrong move telling this creature the truth. It was evidently making her more wary of them and less hospitable. Suddenly it stepped forward. Horrified Ember immediately took two faltering steps backward. Something wasn't quite right in the way the machine moved. She cocked her head to the side slightly her eyes narrowing in concentration. Despite her best efforts the source of her unease was not found before the cyborg continued.

"I cannot just let you go… You’ve endangered us, and you are already in danger. There are weapons below, tools and food. Old Storage that was never emptied, if you will help us we will help you."

This time Ember's reaction was one of alarm. Not only was she now stuck here temporarily but the crazed piece of machinery wanted to attack the guards? She made a strange noise of disagreement unintentionally before quickly silencing herself. There was no way to win a battle with the guards. Their weaponry would far be superior considering how long this old facility had been rusting away. The cyborg continued to step forward sounding more welcoming, but her movements again put Ember ill at ease. That's when it hit her- there was no sound. No noise to suggest the slight grinding of metal nor the transfer of weight onto the concrete floor. And the movements were jerky and uncoordinated. [Perhaps a hologram?[/i] she thought wistfully, as the cyborg continued.

The was when the cyborg mentioned a 'her'.

"You don't need to trust us." Ember started in a neutral tone. "But we can leave you and thereby keep whoever it is you want safe. Fighting the guards is a sure way to get all of us killed. There is no way I am going up against them, I'm in enough trouble already."

In her panic Ember failed to notice the breathing entering on the peripherals. When the breaths suddenly got within one meter, she let out an exclamation of horror and spun around preparing to grab her knives.

She’d moved towards the group as she spoke, her body language doing its best to convey a sense of trust and honesty in her words but the movement was jerky at best and broken at worst due to the malfunctioning imagers. Her hand never touched the hilts. The nozzles of seven guns were pointing at her companions and her own heads.

"Don't move or we'll be forced to shoot." The man in the lead said evenly, carefully staring down the viewpoint at Ember. "Despite what it looks like, it would do you good to trust us. The names Zac, and these are a few of my men. We are not aligned with the facility, on the contrary we oppose. We'll help you get out of this predicament, however we are not stupid. Unfortunately the use of the weaponry here is a necessary evil, as we are all away not all Anomalies are peaceful."

He cocked his head slightly in Ember's direction at the end.

"Now lay down any weapons you have for Ammon to collect."

A strange ringing sound was echoing in Ember's ears as the blood began to rush to her head. She had failed to listen to Zac's little speech, and even if she had there was no way she would trust a human. Her eyes were mere pin pricks surrounded by white iris in her terror and all she could think of was being taken back to the facility. Her frame began shaking violently once again, her small body no longer coping with the intense stress of the last few hours. All of a sudden she felt very cold.

"The wraiths going into shock." Zac's voice was devoid of emotion. He glanced over at Hector, his gun remained aimed at Ember. "Disarm her."

"We're not treating her until I'm sure she won't kill of one of our men. Ammon, once she's disarmed, approach from behind and cover her mouth."

"Ember!" Neptune shouted, putting the little girl down and running over. She felt weak but it was nothing Neptune couldn't shake off. "Don't touch her! Move back!" Neptune didn't care if there were guns pointed at her head, she wasn't about to let these strangers touch her sister. "I said move!" Neptune growled and shoved one of them out of her way. She caught Ember, her grip gentle as she tried to bring Ember back to reality. "Ember it's alright, it's me." She had never seen the raven haired girl act like this before. What had they done to make Ember so afraid?

"It's just Neppy," She hugged the girl tightly, shielding them from whatever attacks were being launched behind them. If she had to Neptune would absorb the brunt of them, she would be the one to get shot if someone dared use their gun. Neptune didn't mind as long as it meant Ember lived. As long as her sister escaped. "They're not with the facility, no one is taking you back. No one is taking us back, we're free." She reassured the girl, rocking her slightly as a mother would do. Neptune was not used to comforting others and so she was a bit awkward with both action and word, but essentially knew what to do.

"You need to give her space!" Neptune turned her head slightly to the people whose guns were still trained on them. "When someone is having an anxiety attack you don't rush towards them! That just makes it worse!" Neptune turned back to Ember then, trying to get the girl to focus on her. "Hey, you gonna be alright? Do you need me to carry you?" She would do it if she had to. Neptune wasn't weak, neither physically nor mentally. When they had been kicked out of their home, Ember had been Neptune's rock. Now Neptune was going to do the same for Ember, she would be the emotionally strong one for the both of them if needed.

Hopefully the others managed to get away. Neptune thought, praying that Reyna, Xandre, and Evan still had a fighting chance. Sure these people claimed that they opposed the facility but you never knew anyone's true intentions. Sam had people everywhere and Neptune doubted he didn't have spies in whatever underground group these people were claiming they were from. Neptune finally released Ember, hopefully the girl was a bit better, and turned to Zac. "Do you have proof? Show me something that says I can trust you." Otherwise she would put Zac and all his men into an illusion that would allow the anomalies to escape.

Reyna wasn't sure what Xandre was telling Evan through his weird psychic powers but she waited patiently for him to tell her. Suddenly a branch behind them broke and Reyna turned, acutely alert to their surroundings. Without her noticing they had been surrounded, guns raised and pointed at them. "Don't move! We're not with the facility and we won't hurt you unless you give us a reason to." Reyna's arms shot into the air, not as a surrender, but a show of she wouldn't try anything. Xandre was deeply embedded in whatever it is he was thinking so it was up to her to advocate for them both. "We're not gonna do anything," Reyna promised, attempting to appear small and weak so that she had the advantage.

"We're hikers, we got lost and have been in these woods for days." The girl attempted to feign innocence, trying to use a story she had just come up with in her head. "Please we're just scared and hungry. We've been walking for days," it was true that the facility happened to be in a popular recreational hiking area. They were located far behind a barbed wire fence so that no one could get near, but Reyna had heard a few rumors that stragglers were taken into the facility and questioned before being killed. That was just a rumor of course, she bet that all they really did was take them back into town and erase their memories of ever having seen the facility.

A few of the guns lowered, they were clearly confused and looking for directions from their leader. Xandre was still deep in what appeared to be thought and Reyna could only hope he had heard her and would play along. Hopefully he would actually speak rather than use his mind talk or whatever he called it. "My brother's sick, he's been babbling on about random things and is starting to hear voices. Please, we just need help." Reyna was so proud of herself, she was giving such a convincing performance and even teared up. They seemed so convinced for a moment until one of them broke the formation and walked up behind her, pushing her hair back to reveal the barcode tattoo. It was the unexpected touch that made Reyna react and her fingers twitched, the man screaming and dropping his gun as his eyes began to bleed.

"Darn, just as I was getting to the good part." She tsked and sighed. "Don't move!" The gun was pushed into her back. Reyna's hands were lowered behind her and tied together. She didn't need her hands to use her ability, but if these guys wanted to feel better by doing so then she might as well let them. Reyna wasn't stupid enough to get caught again, she wasn't going down without a fight. As soon as he stepped back Reyna turned and kicked him in the groin, kneeing him in the face when he fell. She ducked quickly as a bullet whizzed overhead and watched as two men suddenly began moving towards each other, clearly horrified at the seemingly magnetic pull that made them slam together. As soon as the circle was broken Reyna grabbed Xandre's wrist from behind her back and broke into a run, hoping that he could keep up. She didn't get very far though, there were more and a bullet whizzed past her ear, clipping a piece of her hair. She kept running, if they shot from behind Xandre would get shot. It didn't matter to Reyna though, she told herself it was a means to achieving her end but really it was because she knew Xandre could take care of himself.

A terrible pain shot through her leg and blood trickled down her pants. Reyna collapsed, rolling into a patch of earth and grass. She groaned, thankfully it wasn't a bullet that had gotten her but a dart. The world began to feel floaty, as though she were flying through a cloud. Her breathing slowed and Reyna giggled, eventually stopping when whatever was in the dart took over and her head lulled to the side. She was still awake, she just couldn't move.

"Ember! Don't touch her! Move back! I said move!"

The sound came as though from behind a closed door; muffled and altogether distant. Through her hazy sight Ember saw one of the men fall and suddenly someone was holding her. The touch was gentle but she was not in her right mind and her nerves automatically went on fire causing her to convulse in panic.

"Ember it's alright, it's me. It's just Neppy,"

She froze. Her tremors subsiding as her sister held her. For a moment Embers whole frame relaxed, collapsing in Neptune's arms.

Zac watched the proceedings with his eyebrows raised before turning to Ammon.

"I thought I told you to dart em if they came even close to hurting one of our men." he said in a low voice. His eyes accused Ammon as he stared him down.

Ammon just gave him a crooked grin.

"What was she going to do? Throw us into an illusion? She couldn't kill us." He paused, his expression suddenly lighting up to something cheeky. "…Besides she's rather pretty."

Zac appeared to ignore his last comment, instead turning his attention to Neptune, his expression puzzled.

"We need to get moving."

This had an immediate reaction on Ember with the girl once again going rigid. She clung to Neptune.

"They're taking us back, they're taking us back!"

"They're not with the facility, no one is taking you back. No one is taking us back, we're free."

Ember just went glassy eyed and gave up, once again just falling back into Neptune's embrace. She felt herself being rocked and finding herself having no energy to react she just let it all happen, staring unseeing at the ceiling.

"You need to give her space! When someone is having an anxiety attack you don't rush towards them! That just makes it worse!....Hey, you gonna be alright? Do you need me to carry you?"

Ember couldn't force herself to respond. As far she was concerned shutting down was her only option. Abruptly she felt Xandres presence on her mind. In desperation she immediately started mentally calling out to him. She wasn't even aware if he could hear her, but she figured she didn't have much to lose. She begged him to come help them for a few seconds before she felt herself slipping away. She accepted the unconsciousness gratefully allowing it to suck her in to its darkness.

"Do you have proof? Show me something that says I can trust you."

Zac paused for a moment, assessing Neptune carefully before he opened his mouth.

"And how would we prove it? Technically anything could be an act. However think for a moment, really you have two options. One: You fight us off, wander around on your own until Sam picks you all up and takes you to the second facility. Or Two: You risk coming with us.

"We're not your enemies Neppy. We're around here trying to pick up Anomalies to get them away to safe houses before the facility finds them. The guns are a precaution. Due to our moles in the facility we are well aware of the dangerous Anomalies. If it wasn't for your sisters bloody past, all the guns would have darts in them. As it is- darts aren't enough of a deterrent for the more deadly. We found that out the hard way."


His voice quietened at the end.

"We need you to come with us." He said with a sense of urgency. "If we take too long now, the facility will take all of us too and then who will stop them?"

“Who said that? Show yourself. Step forward slowly or we open fire.”

Zac glanced over to see one of his men aiming at a figure in the dark. Suddenly it came towards them, arms raised in surrender.

"I want to hide. To be left alone. Leave us alone."

The voice was distorted and difficult to understand. And then the tone changed. The figure seemed to explode in a rage before the hall was empty.

"Damn."
Zac breathed out for a second. "Who is she?"

Ammon shrugged.

"Never heard of her…she doesn't live here does she?"

Zac ignored Ammon, and gestured to two of the men to follow him down the tunnel, calling back to Ammon as he did so.

"Get the rest to the safe house. We can't leave this one here, Sam will find her otherwise."

As soon as Zac disappeared, Ammon chucked his dart gun to the ground. He ignored the sound of a disapproval of the man behind him instead grabbing the bag the man had been carrying behind the group. Walking up to Neptune he held out a wrapped bar of some sort out to her.

"Take it. I know you mustn't have eaten for a while. Sorry 'bout Zac an 'is guns. He lost one of his men a few months back and now he's just cautious." The blonde carefully peered over Neptune's shoulder to glance at the Wraith.

"Yer sister's passed out" He commented, before his eyes narrowed in scrutiny. "She's not really what I expected. Them moles described her as a right terror."

He laughed suddenly, seemingly unaware that perhaps his comments were not particularly wanted. Suddenly his whole expression changed. It held a strong sense of sincerity.


"Are you goin' to come with us?"

"Ember?" Neptune shook her sister slightly, attempting to wake the girl up. "Crap, she's out like a light." Neptune mumbled and bit down on her thumb nail in thought, an awful habit she had picked up inside the facility. It looked like Neptune would have to carry her sister after all although whether or not she was strong enough was the real question. While debating, one of the men came over, his shaggy blond hair falling into his eyes. Her blood boiled at the sight of him, at the fact that his partner had used the nickname only her precious sister ever used. Neppy, it was somewhat of a tease really considering Neptune was really the name of an underwater Greek God.

Her mind stopped whirling though when he reached out with what looked like some sort of packaged square. In response the girl's stomach growled. Neptune hadn't thought about it, but she really hadn't eaten in a long time. Gratefully, Neptune took it from him and opened up the silver wrappings to find a sweet and sticky granola bar. The flavors danced across her tongue in marvelous harmony, it had been a while since Neptune had eaten anything but bland gruel and the occasional piece of meat or cheese. Despite how she felt, the black and white haired girl attempted to suppress the overwhelming emotion of joy and swallowed, savoring every bite. It wasn't until she had licked her fingers clean that Neptune answered him.

"I wouldn't worry too much about Ember," as she spoke she shifted her sister in her arms, lifting Ember onto her back. This was no easy task considering that Ember was limp and so her body right now weighed twice as much. "She talks a big game, but really Ember doesn't want to hurt anyone." A steely expression suddenly adorned her face as she practically whispered the words, "It's Sam's fault. Not her's." Neptune would protect Ember to the ends of the earth, if she didn't; who would? "If anything you should be looking out for Xandre and Reyna, he's older but powerful and she's young and impressionable. The other's I'm not so sure about."

It's true what she had said and Neptune really did not know to what extent Sam had gotten into Xandre and Reyna's brains. She knew Sam had been torturing the two, using them to get rid of other's he no longer needed. It almost made her worry about reuniting with them. "I will come with you, yes. However, if Ember leaves, I go too." She got to her feet, holding onto Ember tightly. "So if your partner is Zac, what do they call you?"

Just the mention of that man's name was enough to make her blood turn cold. Reyna hated Sam fervently, he had killed her parents, made her kill ceaselessly, and used her as a puppet in his twisted game of marionettes. She had almost died in the maze he had created and so the very mention of that cold hearted man's alias sent chills down her spine. The goose bumps went away though, but the feeling of being trapped with no where to run was ever present. Even free she would live in constant fear of that man, of that name. "We should get going," Reyna mumbled as Niell healed her. She uttered a thanks and rose to her feet, suddenly fully awake and awfully energized, like a fully charged battery or a kid in a candy store.

Reyna felt antsy, she wanted to move and jump around and do anything that wasn't standing still. She had to wait though, it seems as though using his ability had taken a lot out of Niell and he was out of breath. "What if Evan doesn't know how?" Neptune questioned. What if he was like her and had an incomplete education and could barely write his name much less find clues in a mine field of facts. There was no time to wait though, it was do or die and they had to keep moving for the shouts began to grow louder and clearer with every passing moment. So Reyna did what she always did, she kept moving forward. Her hands felt empty, she played with the bottom of the sleeves on the jacket she was wearing but it was odd walking around and not having anyone yell at her for standing out of line or being forced into a situation where she had to choose self preservation or the life of another.

Reyna was not innocent, no her innocence had been stolen like so many other anomalies who had been forced into the clutches of the facility, but she would do anything to preserve the young girl's and boy's of today. So Reyna started walking in the direction Xandre had pointed. Her bare feet picked up leaves, the soles of her heels stained with the color of earth. Eventually another ruined building was well within her sights but before Reyna could even grow close a voice yelled at her to freeze. She obeyed, jumping in the air in surprise which set off a chain reaction and a bullet whizzed past her, grazing the top of her left ear. A high pitched yelped erupted from within her, causing yet another bullet to zoom past her, this one missing it's margin by a large streak. "Stop shooting!" Reyna begged, holding her injured ear and not wanting to be hit by another more.
