Matt prefers darker colors and short sleeve shirts and either shorts or loose fitting jeans for ease of movement.

Playing my piano is my hobby, i love playing music on a cold fall day. I love listening to music orchestral music mainly, i like the grandiose sound. "

Dislikes Most rap, stupid questions, crowds, being alone in the dark, and the Shield
"I don't like the vulgar rap, the kind that sings about sex and drugs. I hate when people asks questions that are easily answered, or that someone just said the answer to."

Personality:Before The Shield appeared Matt was not very serious, he was care free and laughed whenever he could, but events a week before the Shield caused him to become angry and depressed. His depression worsened when the shield appeared but he still went out of his way to make sure the little kids who lost their parents were okay. He was always one to care for others, even if he didn't know them. One of Matt's greatest faults though, was his secret desire for power. He wanted to be superior to everyone and although he suppressed the desire it became stronger when he found out he had powers. When he felt the rush and excitement of the power he had, he was horrified when he began to think of ways he would use the power. He resisted the urge to abuse his powers but he understood why other kids would do such a thing. When you have power, why not use it how you want?

Every now and again his old self will shine through his seriousness making him look like he doesn't have a care in the world. Although he is suffering from depression he is still very sarcastic, it will either be in a joking way or a mean way. However, even if Matt is overall a nice guy and normally bears no ill will to anyone, he can be manipulative and bears grudges for a long time. He won't forget your face, or anything you do to him. Now that his only family left is his two dogs, he will protect them with his life and anything else he thinks is worth protecting.
"Maybe i'll end up using my powers as i want..."

Power: Matt's power is energy manipulation, He can shape energy into anything he can imagine or fire it in beams. However, there is a limit to what he can do, the larger the creation the less time he will be able to maintain it before tiring. For example, if he was to create a wall out of energy to block attacks he will only be able to maintain it for a minute or two depending on how strong the attack is.
"I could shoot you, or protect you. Your choice."

Layer Six

Favorite Color: Matt doesn't hate any colors, but prefers the darker ones.
"I like greys and blacks the most, with lighter colors for contrast."

Favorite Animal: Anything that wont eat him or he can hug and pet, he loves dogs the most because of their unconditional loyalty.
"I love dogs....They're cuddly."

Favorite Movie Genre: Any, he is easily pleased when it comes to movies.
"I have low standards when it comes to movies."

Layer Seven

Love Interest:None yet.
"Who could fall in love at a time like this?"

Sexuality: Bi, but getting laid is the last thing on his mind right now.
"Why would i experience one, when i can experience both?"

Favorite Eye Color: He isn't concerned with the color, but what emotion the eyes show
"I like to be able to know what you're thinking."

Favorite Hair Color: He likes dark hair color.
"Or Silver."

Layer Eight

Family: His Mother was an accountant at a very successful Banking company and his Father was a doctor at the a Hospital outside of Raddation. His parents loved and cared for their children but were strict when they had to be but were chill most of the time. His 21 year old brother was a spoiled snob and Matt never got along well with him, so when he went away to college Matt was happy not have to listen to his brothers Narcissism. His family had two dogs, Chase and Maggie, both were Yellow Labs and they both slept in Matt's room on his bed. A week before the Shield went up His mom found out that his Dad was in an affair with a nurse at the hospital, and his father's demeanor changed from a gentle, kind man to something Matt would never expect from his father. He became violent and punched his mother, breaking her jaw. His brother came home shortly after and seemed to have changed. He was genuinely worried about his Mother and Baby Brother, he began to talk to Matt more, even asked why their relationship was so bad. With brutal honesty Matt told him and that was the spark that re-ignited their bond.

Tina Hale: Tina is Matt's Mother. she was only 20 years old when she gave birth to Matt's brother, and 24 when she got pregnant with Matt. She is now 41 but she looks like she's in her early 30's. Tina loved and cared for her children, and was a constant companion to them both. Matt confided in her more than his father, but thats because Matt was always a mama's boy.
"I loved... no 'Loved' isnt the right word, i love her i refuse to think she's dead. She worked hard to provide for us, even though we were already well off. I'm not giving up hope on seeing her again."

Shane Hale: A Oncologist at a hospital in bigger city outside of Raddiation. He was Head researcher there where he was working on a way to prevent cancer from metastasizing. Whenever he was home he was quite, but not detached. Silently watching over his children as they played. Although he did cheat on his wife, he loved his children very much.
"That bastard, i hate him! He ruined our family, left it in pieces and just left the mess sitting there! I don't understand why he did what he did, i loved him. I hate having to have the last thing i remember about him being something bad."

Caleb Hale: Caleb is self centered and has a Holier-than-thou attitude. He went to the private school in the north side, one of the biggest reasons as to why Matt didn't go there. Although snooty and self centered he did care for his little brother, although he wouldn't get caught dead saying so. After their father attacked their mother, Caleb tried to connect with his little brother who was brooding and depressed. His effort with trying to cheer Matt up and tell him that he was on his side did bring them closer together and they began to patch up the holes in their relationship.
"He is a narcissistic jerk! At least....he was for most of the time, when he found out about the incident it seemed to be a smack in the face for him, as if he realized his life really wasn't perfect. He even came home from college to be with Mom and I. I began to like him more, but than the Shield popped up and now... now i don't know."
"Family life was great for the most part, i miss them, even that Jackass who decided he wanted a nurse!"

History: Although he lived in the North side, He went to the Public High School because he didn't want to have to wear a uniform and it had a health career academy in it. He made good grades at High School and got scholarships to many state universities and even visited a few campuses but decided he wanted to go to school closer to home. Although his Family life was good it took a radical change a week before the Shield appeared. His Parents got into a massive argument because his Mother found out that his Dad was having a affair with a nurse at the hospital, it ended with his Mother getting a broken jaw and his dad getting sent to jail and moving out. The sudden change in his family life left him confused and angry. When the Shield appeared and his life changed he was angry and depressed. He thought he could manage what ever would happen next, he had his dogs and there were no rules, he was naive enough to think nothing would go bad. Although the freedom was great for all the other kids, he'd be lying to say he didn't enjoy it, but when people started getting powers he knew things are gonna get real bad. When he discovered his powers to shoot energy and even create walls of energy he felt a rush of excitment and power. He decided that he wouldnt abuse them but understood the appeal. When it came to choosing a gang he went to the one that was closest to home, The Thunders. He vowed he wouldn't get in too deep, after all, he was looking out more for himself than the good of the gang. His only true Loyalty is to himself, his friends, and his family.
"I suppose i was lucky to have the life i did, not many had it so well off."

So begins...

Matt Hale

"I have taken a blood sample from a friend of mine and a number of others who would allow me. So far the only thing they have in common are abilities, abilities no human should possess. My friend was able to melt objects with a touch of his fingers. Unfortunately, my friend's body was not able to maintain itself and soon his powers destroyed him like they would any object he would touch. After he passed on i took another look at his blood. Although poorly preserved, i could tell that the same has happened to the small sample i had, the cells in the blood were no longer intact. Not a day goes by where i wonder if anything could have been done to prevent his death, and the many that are to come."

"Two more fell victim to not being able to maintain their powers, ten more killed from the fighting. Thanks to the basic medicine i learned in the health academy and the books i have taken from there, i have been able to teach myself (Badly) how to administer shots filled with painkillers and other medicine i have been able to scavenge from pharmacies. With the knowledge i have, i was able to make one kids death painless."

Matt sat on the back patto of his house in the north side, reading random entries in the "Medical" journal he has kept since the emergence of powers. He made it as a way of possibly helping people understand what was going on. He didn't know why he kept the thing, there were no patterns to the powers or how they acted on the body, maybe he kept it as coping mechanism for what happened. In the cases where people got sick the end result was always the same, Death. The only reason Matt can think of keeping it, or even continuing it for that matter, is to perhaps leave a record of what happened, not that he thought the shield would come down anytime soon or that what happened would ever leave anyone's mind. He took some science equipment and some of the Health Academy's books from the school so that he could try to figure out what was happening. Although he hasn't figured anything out, he has been able to use what he read from the medical books numerous times in helping kids with sprains, broken bones, and a number of less serious complaints.

He closed the journal and looked down into the back yard where his two yellow labs, Chase and Maggie, who were racing around the yard. Chase had a rope toy in his mouth and he was playing keep away with Maggie. Chase was smaller than Maggie, and much quicker so he never let her get too close. Although since Maggie is much older than Chase she seems to be having trouble keeping up with the younger dog. After watching them for a few more minutes he stands up and whistles loudly, which causes both dogs to stop and look at him before trotting over. He squats down and hugs both of them before ushering them inside his house. For the most part his house was the same aside from the dirt stained carpets and boarded up windows. The pictures of his family were all intact, even if his father didn't deserve to be in any anymore.

He leads his dogs down into the basement which used to be a sort of "Man cave" for him and his father" but the dogs also ate down there, it's the easiest place to store their food. He fills their dishes with food and makes sure they have water before petting and hugging them again. After they are done eating, Maggie lays down on the couch with a loud grunt. "You tired little girl?" He says to his dog, who just looks at him out of the corner of her eyes. "You played hard, i don't blame you." He says to Maggie, who's eyes are closed. Chase barks at Matt and runs around in a circle. "How are you NOT tired?" Chase barks again and runs up the stairs. "Alright, i guess you can come with." He follows his dog up the stairs and finds him sitting by the front door. Matt unlocks the door and walks out with chase following at his heels. After locking his house he walks down the street towards the east side.

The east side was ruled by The Thunders, the gang he was apart of. If you ever asked him why he joined he'd tell you it was to survive, which was a true answer. He joined because it was the a way to increase his chances of making it through the day alive. Although he would not lay his life on the line for the good of the gang, he isn't that loyal to it. A girl in the gang named Sera made her apartment open to any Thunder gang members so Matt figures he would go there for lack of anything else to do. He walks up the steps to the front door, Chase panting behind him. He knocks a few times before /i] opening the door and walking inside just as the girl who owns the place comes down the stairs. "Hi Sera." Chase begins to move into the house but Matt makes a Tss noise, making him stop and sit. "I hope you don't mind me bringing Chase along."

Sera was quite surprised to see her fellow gang member open the door. His dog almost bounded inside, overcome with the excitement that only dogs could muster. Matt quickly got him back under control.

Sera always thought that Mat was a cutie. Those eyes were enough to give her chills. She kept her distance though, knowing it was probably not a good idea to be looking for a boyfriend, you know with the whole town being turned upside down and what not.

"Hi Sera." He greeted. "I hope you don't mind me bringing Chase along."

"No not at all," She smiled sweetly at both of them. "Have you eaten yet?" It was a genuine question. "I think we have some stuff still in the kitchen." She bet over and sensed for the dog's intent. Sensing nothing malicious she petted him softly on the head.

"Heard from any of the Thunders today?"

As if on cue, Luke was at the doorway too along with his large cat. Luke was another cutie, but in a different way. His eyes were an exotic color, yellowish it would seem. Made sense, maybe it came with his ability to control the cat. His eyes were cat like themselves.

"Hello, Matt, Sera. Do you guys mind if Deshon and I enter as well?" He asked so nicely. Sera wondered if Deshon and Chase were going to tear her apartment up, but then decided to push her worries aside.

"No problem. Make yourselves at home."

Muggy, stifling clouds hung low in the sky outside the window of sports center. They huddled together in a tightly knit group, refusing to let any pure sun light come down to the starved ground. Of course, it could be moonlight, too, that they were restricting, for there was no longer day or night but just one never-ending curtain of cloud. Every thing about the weather was always the same now. It never rained or snowed, it never was windy beyond a slight breeze, clouds forever covered the sky, and the stars never, ever came out.

So of course with all that was staying the same, something had to change. Why not the people? It was if indeed someone had said those very words. Mutations sprang up, deadlier and more unpredictable than a rattlesnake. Hidden natures were uncovered and true colors were displayed, some better than what was expected but others terribly worse. Gangs formed and people clashed to create the chaos that was now known as life.

Inside the sports complex rested a strange, two-bodied being known as Luke William Corriel. His human body, the one he referred to as Luke-body, was eating granola bars. He enjoyed the crunchy texture and the sweet taste, knowing that in the cat body's mouth it would be unpleasant. He called his cat body Deshon-body. Luke was still unused to possesing two bodies. His conciousness controlled each of them simotaneously, except for when one or both of them were asleep. On the inside he was still Luke, but on the outside he had split persons. He often worried that his mind would split. Maybe it already had.

Luke-body shook Deshon-body awake and the cat part of him yawned, showing enormous teeth. Deshon-body stretched and Luke's dual-bodied mind felt the delicious feeling of muscles and tendons being exercised. He shifted his concious mind to Deshon-body. It was often too confusing to try to control two bodies at once.

Luke located where he had stored the raw meat and started to eat. At the back of his mind he could sense his human body, a nearly deserted sentinel post. As he ate he enjoyed the flavor of the meat. It was a taste he had never seen himself liking before all of this had happened. When he finished eating he told his cat body to wash up and shifted to his human one. He could still feel what the other body was feeling, but it was muted, diminished, and all together less confusing.

He took off the soft, worn clothes he wore when he slept and donned a t-shirt that said Got Oxygen? on it and some sports shorts. He folded up the gym mat he slept on and wrapped his blanket around his hoard of books. Yes, most people probably weren't too interested in stealing science textbooks or any other kind of book, but one could never be too sure.

He called Deshon-body to his side and set out. He planned to visit Sera, for she had declared her quarters open. It would be better to be together than alone. There was safety in numbers.

His new tennis shoes (filched from a store- not that anyone really cared since since the owners were long gone) were comfortable and protected his human feet well. As far as Deshon-body went the cat had leathery pads thicker than the soles of his shoes.

In his pocket rested a package of dark chocolate for Sera. He knew she liked it, or at least that she ate candy. It was also to work as a bribe to get her to allow Deshon-body into her home if needed. As he approached the building Sera lived in he saw Matt and one of his dogs. Luke got along alright with Matt, but he was careful not to let the other boy take any blood from either of his bodies. Sera burst out of the door and the dog- Luke believed its name was Chase- tried to get in. Matt made a hissing noise that rang loud and clear in Deshon-body's ears and the dog sat. He sure has good control of his dogs, Luke thought.

"Hello, Matt, Sera. Do you guys mind if Deshon and I enter as well?" he asked. He took off his glasses and wiped the dirt off of them. Deshon-body's tail flicked about distractedly and a purring resonated from its throat. One of the strange thing about Deshon-body was that despite its big cat appearnce it still could do some things of big cat couldn't, such as purr. Hopefully the other people in the Thunders gang didn't know that big cats couldn't purr or else he was another step towards being uncovered.

Matthew Hale

"Thanks Sera, but i'm not hungry and i fed Chase before we left home." He says as he watches her pet Chase, who just smiles dumbly at her and tries to lick her hand as she pulls away from him. Matt walks inside the Apartment with Chase following. After a few steps Chase's Head turns swiftly towards the door making Matt turn to look, expecting trouble when a voice spoke. "Hello, Matt, Sera. Do you guys mind if Deshon and I enter as well?" "Hello Luke." It was only Luke, a fellow Thunder, along with his Big Cat Deshon. Chase makes a noise somewhere between a growl and a whimper when he see's the big cat at Luke's side. "Easy boy." Matt scratches behind Chase's ear and he relaxes a little. "Oh, also you guys, please just call me by my nickname, Mateus. 'Matt' is so common it's boring." He says to them

Matt makes his way towards a couch in the apartment and sits down, Chase laying at his feet. "As for talking to other Thunders, you two are the only people i've seen so far today. And i haven't seen boss man in..... three days, i think." Matt says, he measures 'Days' In how many times he has slept.

"Also I was thinking of checking on the Children in the day care today, you know. Making sure none have any new cuts or bruises, and cleaning the ones they do have and i was wondering if you two would like to tag along. It would be safest to go if i had a group along for the trip, not to mention Luke can scare people away and Sera, you can tell me if anyone of the Young ones are not saying everything that's wrong with them." He says to the two, Sera would be very helpful given that she can sense others feelings and Deshon will stop people from trying anything funny. It's not that he couldn't defend himself, it's just people are less likely to attack when there is a group of people in the same faction, or when there is a giant freaking Snow Leopard with the group. "But you guys don't have too, i can make my way over there by myself if i need to" He says, Although he was really hoping they'd agree, just for the added security.

"Speaking of Cuts and Bruises, you two don't need anything looked at do you?" He asks, carefully eyeing the two, looking for anything that may be wrong with them. He even quickly checks Deshon's body for any visible problems.

Sera smiled at Mateus' concern. He was looking her and Luke over with such vigor.

"No, I'm fine, I promise." She almost laughed as she said it. "I have nothing better to do. I would be happy to help you with the kids." It wasn't just her power that would come in handy. Despite being a human lie detector, Sera loved children. She had a sort of affinity with them. She had no problems getting down on her hands and knees and getting on their level. Kids respected her for that.

"What about you? She asked Luke with a flinty smile on her face. "Are you going to come a long for the ride?" She was always flirting without meaning to. It didn't help that she had these two very handsome guys around her all the time. It was nice, hanging out with these two. She felt like she had a family for the first time in a long time. She didn't even really miss the city the way it used to be.

Matt announced that he wanted to go check up on the kids at the nursery. Always the one to care, aren't you, Matt? That's a good thing. The world could use more of that. What we don't need is a bleeding heart. Just don't go too extreme. Too much of a good thing can be bad. Luke fingered the chocolate in his pocket, thinking about how the kids at the day care would like the creamy sweetness. They probably didn't have much access to sweets because the grocery store was in the Thunders territory. It wasn't the only source of food, of course, but it was a main one.

"What about you? Are you going along for the ride?" Sera asked, smiling.

"Yeah, I'll go, too. There's safety in numbers. And big cats," he said, smiling. "I'm curious if any of the little ones are developing powers."

Luke wanted to shift his point of awareness to Deshon-body, but to do so would be risky. While he wanted to experience first hand (or paw?) the hightened senses of his cat body he didn't want to increase the risk of exposing his secret. He didn't want to let his friends know that he had been lying to them. It would probably be better to tell them. They would receive the news better if he told them himself. But if he did tell them it would reveal a big weakness of his. They could exploit him through the fact that he couldn't fully control two bodies at once. Not that he expected Sera and Matt- or Mateus, as he wished to be called- would do such a thing; instead, he was worried about what others would do if they leaked the secret.

"Let's go. It will be nice to see some kids, if they'll welcome us," he said, both of his bodies starting to walk in the direction of the nursery.

Matthew Hale

"Excellent." Mateus says with a smile. He stands from the couch he was sitting on, patting his thigh making chase stand to his feet and follows closely behind Matt. "Well, if they don't want to get sick they'll have to welcome us." Mateus says dismissively. Mateus falls into step besides Luke and Chase runs ahead to sniff at an old garbage bag laying in the street. "Leave it." He says sternly and Chase quickly loses interest in it and runs for a tree to relieve himself. "So i left everything needed at the Daycare on my last visit, so we don't have to stop by my place." He says. "Hopefully the guy that looks over the kids won't give me difficulty in making sure they are okay in terms of physical injuries." Mateus says. The guy who looks over the little kids is very protective. Mateus has observed that much when he was there the last few times, he had to put pressure on a nasty cut on one of the children which caused him to scream and the guy had a look of pure fury.

"So, what do you guys think will be in store for us today? You think it will be like any other?" He asks when a kid comes running around the corner ahead of them, starling Chase and causing him to bark at the kid in a warning manner. "Easy boy." Mateus recognizes the younger kid, he was a fellow Thunder. "I'm glad i found you three" Says the boy, panting. "All the food at Wally world, it's gone." Mateus stops in his tracks. "Gone? What do you mean 'Gone'?" He asks the boy. The food? Gone? "It can't just have vanished!!" Mateus says losing his composure for a moment. He takes a deep breath and places his hand to his face. No food? Oh god, when people get hungry bad things happen. The gangs will be at each others throat, accusations will fly and blood will spill. Not only that but medical problems will ensue. Lack of Vitamin C will cause Scurvy, lack of calories and fat will cause peoples weight and energy levels to drop and so many others that Matt cannot name them all. He lowers his hand and looks at Sera and Luke. "A storm is coming, and who knows how it will end." Mateus turns to the boy that gave them the news. "I assume you are also going to tell the other members? I would get on that, fights are going to start soon, it's best everyone is prepared." The boy nods and runs off.

He turns back to his friends. "People are going to start turning on each other, and animals are going to become food...." He stops talking as the thought leaves his mouth, his mind turning to the two most important things in his life right now. Chase and Maggie. "Chase, come." He says and Chase slinks over, sensing that something was wrong. "I think my plans are changing, i have to get Chase home and i need to make sure Maggie is alright." Matt looks down at his furry companion. "What would i do if i lost you...." he says in a whisper. He shakes his head, refusing to think about having the last things in his life being taken from him. "I'm going home, i need to make sure they will be alright." After saying that he walks at a fast pace, Chase following closely behind. The children will have to wait.

Mateus seems to be in good spirits, Luke thought. Mateus had his dogs and a purpose in life. Doing something always kept the mind away from more negative topics. Caring for others, especially little kids, was certainly a good thing. With all of this craziness going around it was relieving to seesomeone willing to help out. Luke didn't have the skills necessary to do as much, but he would try to help when he could.

A Thunders kid came running up. "I'm glad I found you three. All the food at Wally World, it's gone," he said breathlessly.

"Gone? What do you mean, 'gone?'" Mateus said. "It can't just have vanished!" Deshon-body growled at the ill news. "A storm is coming, and who knows how it will end." Mateus said. "I assume you are also going to tell the other members? I would get on that, fights are going to start soon, it's best everyone is prepared." The boy nodded and ran off. "People are going to start turning on each other, and animals are going to become food.... Chase, come. I think my plans are changing, I have to get Chase home and I need to make sure Maggie is alright. I'm going home, i need to make sure they will be alright." Mateus finished, walking away at a fast pace.

Luke watched his friend hurry to his home. Animals become food? Luke glanced at Deshon-body and the leopard's royal blue eyes met his human ones. He laughed a bitter laugh. Some people might want to kill Deshon-body to eat! What they really would be killing was a part of another human being. Would that be considered cannibalism? He would put up a fight to defend both his bodies, that was for sure.

What about Deshon-body's needs, though? The cat needed to eat a lot of meat. The dreadful thought of feeding his body human crossed his mind. He shook his head, trying to dispel the terrible thought. Luke was human. The fact that one of his bodies wasn't in human shape didn't change that. Mateus was sure to have dog food. Maybe he would be willing to share some with Luke to feed Deshon-body. Luke made a face; he didn't like the idea of eating dog food. If he had to he would, but it wasn't going to be pleasant.

He said to Sera, "I have to go, too. I need to gather up some things. Do you want to come? I could use some help." He had to go back to his house before all this insanity started happening to harvest the remains of the garden. The plants weren't doing so well but Luke tended to them daily anyways. They still produced vegetables and fruit but at a slower pace. Now there wasn't any choice. There was no longer a reason to wait just that little bit longer for the food to ripen. Any food would be snatched up as soon as possible.

Matthew Hale

Matt rushed home, Chase following closely behind sensing his masters distress. At the moments the only thing that mattered was making sure what was left of his Family was safe, the lack of food momentarily forgotten as something more personally important needed taking care of. His house was in a subdivision close to where Wally World was and he could hear yelling coming from the direction of the store. "This isn't good Chase." He says softly to his dog as he approaches his house. He looks around to make sure no one can see him, although most people know he has dogs most if not all are oblivious as to where he lives. He runs up the steps and opens the door, cursing himself for not locking it.

He ushers Chase inside and walks to the basement door to find it open. I know i closed that door.... and i do remember locking my house. He thinks to himself. He tenses up and looks around before leading Chase down stairs. When he gets to the bottom he finds Maggie where he left her, her eyes meeting his and her tail thumping a greeting but when she looks at something to the right of Matt he turns around in time to get punched in the face. Matt grunts and stumbles backward, holding a hand to his jaw. Chase is Barking at the intruder and Maggie is growling. Matt recovers from the hit in time to see the person point at him, expecting the worst Matt places a translucent shield between himself and his attacker. His opponent fires an attack at Matt but it strikes the shield and Matt feels a strain on his body as he tries to keep the shield up from the attack. Soon after the attack, Chase runs forward and bites the Kid's calf causing him to scream in pain and aim the hand at the dog. "NO!" Matt yells as extends his own hand and beam of red energy shoots out of it and strikes the kid in the chest, making him gasp in surprise and fall to his knees before slumping over to the side.

Matt rushes forward and hugs Chase tightly and pushes him away. He looks back at the body of the boy with a look of fury. "The food vanished only today and you were already going after my dogs?" he says to the body. How had this guy known where he lived? More importantly how did he even get into his house? "I suppose it doesn't matter know anyway." He shakes his head wishing that what just happened never had. He goes and gets a blanket and rolls the kid up in it and pick the body up and carries it over his should up the stairs and out of his home. He took the body and carried it away towards the cemetery where a older kid took it upon himself to bury bodies.

After he returns home he checks the house once again and is reassured that there are no other way in besides the doors, or breaking open his boarded windows he leaves the house again and he locks the door again, he still had to make sure the kids didn't have any nasty cuts or infections. The day care wasn't far from his house, so he just heads straight there. As he walks his mind wanders to his power, the power to use energy in many ways, he could create a clear wall to block attacks, but it will shatter if the attack lasts too long or was too powerful, he could fire beams of energy from his hand or create weapons out of the energy. Firing simple beams of energy was less tiring than molding the energy into anything else, say like a sword or bow. He played around with his powers a lot when he discovered them, he found that his power is very versatile, but weak when used in long periods. One of his favorite ways to use his power was he created a platform of energy beneath his feet and he would lift himself off the ground and glide around on it for awhile before his power was drained, which was very quickly when using his power that way. Every night he thinks of how he would use it if he didn't restrain himself, god he was secretly twisted.

He snaps himself out of his thought in time to find that the Day Care was around the next corner. He turns the corner and walks up to the back door of the day care and enters and walks down the hall to the nurses station where he left his med kit and looks inside it and takes a quick inventory of what was inside it. "There is plenty in here, guess i don't have to go scavenging anytime soon." He closes the kit and picks it up and leaves the room and walks down the hall to the play area, his foot steps echoing quietly off the walls of the empty hallway.He comes to the play room and he slowly opens the door to find the children sleeping. He sighs softly and a smile spreads across his lips as he gently closes the door behind him. He looks around the room and finds the one in charge of the daycare also asleep. Matt can't believe that he was able to sleep, but then again he probably didn't know about what was going on. Matt silently walks around the sleeping bodies and makes his way over to the boy named Kim. Matt gently places his hand on Kim's shoulder and shakes him and whispers "Hey, wake up there is a problem going on outside, i think you should know but i don't want to upset the kids can we step into the hall?" Matt says hoping he was heard.

Matthew Hale

Matt follows him out of the room, careful not to make a noise or step on any of the tiny bodies. When they got out into the hall He leaned against the wall and smiled when he talked about not getting his pet back if one of the littles saw it. "Then i guess it's a good thing i left them at home." He remembers the last time he brought his dogs here and he had to wait till everyone fell asleep to make a silent escape. "But the problem now is...." He lowers his voice a little just in case one of the kids was awake and listening in. "All the food in Wally World is gone and the streets are even more dangerous then they have been." He says, pausing for a minute to let it sink in.

"Not even half an hour ago someone broke into my house, probably with the intent to kill me and take my dogs but i had to....Stop him.." He says with a strain on his voice. "I don't know how much food these kids get at home but now it will be less. And I know that there is little anyone can do in the case of food but i thought you should know and maybe you can keep the kids here until things cool down?" He asks Jun. "I will also be coming around here more often to check up on them medical wise, which is another reason i'm here today, but the lack of food will cause scurvy and weight loss if we don't come up with something. I can keep Scurvy under check because i took some vitamin tablets and stashed them in my house but that's about all i can do to help them with the lack of food. Well that is about all the news i have for you, how about you let me take a look at the kids to make sure they don't have any infections?" He say's as he turns around and walks back into the room. As he walks over to the desk where he put the medical supplies he hears a knock on the door. "Hey Jun, someones here." He whispers loud enough for Jun to hear.
