::About::


Mutation | Abilities:
"I never will be normal again but I am glad that I have Rikia now"
Boo was made a stripe, but she wasn't made a white or orange tiger. She got made
with a black tiger, they are extremely rare and the scientists were intrigued with her.
She has the abilities that most stripes have. Uncanny strength, better balance, enhanced
senses, stamina and speed, the ability to manipulate water and ice at her will, and last
but not least others seem not to be able to lie around her, when she asks a question
they have a hard time getting out of it.

Weaknesses:
♣Large groups of people "I really only like being around Alex or Vera, big groups causes me anxiety"
♣Her stubborness "Once I get my mind set on something it doesn't change, whatsoever"
♣Anything that reminds her of labs "If something reminds me of the labs I sorta just blank out for
a few minutes because of flashbacks"

♣Partial Blind in left eye "One of the scientists experiments screwed up and now I can hardly see
out of my left eye and it seems to just get worse"


Likes
♥Water "I would live in water if I could"
♥Sombra "I don't think I could have made it this far
without her"

♥Her brother "Alex has always been there for me
he is truly the best brother someone could ask for"

♥Vera "I have seemed to always looked up to Vera,
she definately is the best person to be our leader"

♥Being her familiar "I love the feeling of being able
to run with Rikia, it actually almost feels like freedom"


Dislikes
♠Scientists "All they want to do is poke and prode and
I have had about enough"

♠Cages, being locked up "Has anyone ever told you
TIGERS DO NOT LIKED TO BE LOCKED UP!"

♠Needles "I have had enough of these"
♠The loss of her memory "Sometimes I wish I could remeber but what Alex has told me maybe its
best that I dont"

♠Being away from Alex "He is like my rock, not sure if I be alive if it wasn't for him"

fears
X Being locked up again "I don't think I could mentally deal with being caged up again."
X Scientists "Look what they have done to me, enough said"
X Losing Alex or Vera "I can't even think about that"

::DESCRIPTION::

Image
"People like to judge on how people look but its on the inside that counts"
Height: 5'6"|Weight: 118lbs|Eyes: Right eye is tealish green, Left eye is deep blue

Boo is scrawny because of what the scientists have done to her, a lot of physical tests and not as much food, she is not really filled out like she should be. Her eyes are one of her distinct features, anyone that looks into her eyes could tell she was different. It was her left eye color that changed after one of the scientist experiment, it was when she lost most of her eye sight in that eye. Her hair is raven black but with two white streaks on either side of her head, she calls them her lucky stripes. Her skin is a milky white, that makes her eyes stand out more. As for scars, she has many. Many puncture scars on her arms because of the needles. She has scars from the battles she had to do with some of the others. On her stomach she has one long gash that happened in her last fight and still is healing. The only tattoo she has is the one that each stripe has, its right on the back of her neck.

Her second form is the most appealing, because she is a black tiger her skin becomes a little more darker, her eyes become as black as her hair, and her stripes and a bright white. She has a couple grey stripes on her temples. Her ears and tail are black but her tail has a few white and grey stripes. She loves this form because she loves how people just stare at her, the first time she shifted in front of the scientists into her second form they stood their staring at her before they started taking pictures and talking about her.






::PERSONALITY & HISTORY::


ImagePersonality:
"Being an experiment has sorta messed up my social skills, I am not one of the best people to be
around. Just warning ya"
Boo is very timid and only trust two people, Alex and Vera.
She can snap easily and has attacked a scientist more then once which cause them to sedate
and restrain her. She hardly talks, being one that follows Vera and her brother and has learned
sign language like her brother, which she prefers to do unless she is trying to get the truth from
someone.

Sometimes she freaks out and the only one that can calm her down is Alex. She will scream
and cry until Alex calms her with some peaceful illusions. She is known to stare, she could
be staring at someone for five minutes and not even know it. She would do anything for her
brother and Vera, helping them escape gave her some hope.

The scientists liked to use her to get to Alex or Vera, they would torture her just to get Alex
or Vera to cooperate. Because od this she has severe night terrors and has a hard time
sleeping. Unlike her brother she hardly sleeps. She is deeply scared that she is going to
get locked up again and the scientist doing more experiments on her. It was good they
escaped when they did because she was definately on the verge of losing her mind
and ready to just end it all.

History:
"So I dont remember anything of my childhood. Its like I never was her before the age of eight"

Boo was actually adopted by Alex's parent right after she was born. Her biological
parents were teenagers that wasn't ready to deal with kids, they were still in high-
school. She was just a mistake. Her adoptive parents were not able to have any
other children after Alex so that is why they adopted her. They named her
Brookelle Rose. Alex always called her Boo though. As she got older she
followed Alex everywhere, she loved her big brother and hated being seperated
from him. She knew Alex was different but she didn't mind she believed that was
what makes him special.

Everything changed for her one day all in one day. They were going somewhere
in a plane, she was sitting next to Alex, holding his hand because she was scared
of flying. Next thing she knew the plane was falling and her parents and the crew
members went insane. Her brother told her that they will be okay. The plane
crashed and she blacked out. When she awoke she was in some kind of
operating room, she was strapped down to a table and was hooked up to all
kinds of machines. She screamed for Alex, it was the last time she
remembered her past and how her life became a living nightmare.

It was a year later that she awoke, she lost part of her vision in her left eye because one of the experiments they tried to enhance her eye sight but something went wrong. They didn't think she would wake up but ahe did but could not remember anything except for Alex. She became very scarred and started to attack the scientists. They had to put her into a steel cage and keep her locked up. After a few days she finally got to see Alex, he used his illusion ability to help calm her down when she became upset. She also became close to Vera through Alex and soon became to trust her.

As the years went by she became more secluded, attacking anyone that came near her except for Alex or Vera. They kept chains on her just incase she decided to shift. They would use her to get to Alex or Vera, torturing her mentally and physically, sometimes they even used the hunters just to add some "fun". By the time she was around the age of fifteen she was ready to just give up, she even told Alex and Vera that. They put her in the arena with Vera once and that jist cause her to freak out and shutdown, there was no way she would have fought Vera. She was glad they escaped when they did because if they didn't she would have just gave up.






::FAMILIAR::

Familiars Name:
"Shes like my best friend, not sure if I could have made it this far without her"
Sombra

Familiars Gender:
"I think it would be kind of weird if she was a he"
Female

Familiars Personality:
"Sombra is like a rock and pretty stubborn"
Sombra is very protective of Boo, she is also very stubborn and doesn't like being around others that much except for a few. She has learned through Boo that she can trust Alex and Vera. She likes to be at the top, just like any tiger would be. They are the queen/kings od the jungle. She does like to be playful at times when she wants Boo to be less stressed out. She hates being away from Boo, its a big weakness of hers if she is far away from her girl. She can be a bit pessimistic when it comes to certain things. She doesnt like to be around others that much and would much prefer to be alone with Boo then be with a group.






::Right Now (We'll Stand)|Fades Away::

How can I face this monster?
He's looking right through me again
Caught in the midst of the fire.
Don't even try to pretend
That there's even a single shred of hope left for me
This pathetic excuse of a plan
Will right my ending.

Do I look like your hero
Hiding alone in the shadows?
If you're looking for some sort of strength
I'm afraid you're mistaken.

Taking my last step forward
I stand with my eyes to the ground
Blood thirsty vultures surround us
All I can hear is the sound
Of my heartbeat awaiting the ending
Why did they choose me?
Did the great ones all stand at the ledge
And beg for mercy?

Do I look like your hero
Hiding alone in the shadows?
If you're looking for some sort of strength
I'm afraid you're mistaken.

I close my eyes,
Look deep inside.
We won't stand down
This time

Right now (we'll stand)
Right now
Right now (we'll stand)
Right now
Right now (we'll stand)
Right now (we'll stand)
Right now (we'll stand)
Right now

Do we look like your heroes
Hiding alone in the shadows?
If you're looking for some sort of strength
I'm afraid you're mistaken.

Do I look like your hero
Hiding alone in the shadows? (Is there anybody listening)?
If you're looking for some sort of strength
I'm afraid you're mistaken.

Vera had heard somewhere that it's not the fire that kills the person. It's the smoke.

Now, she had no doubt in her mind that that was true. She was on her hands and knees. Smoke filled the air around her, blocking out any light, filling every possible space, choking her lungs of fresh air, killing any meager bit of hope. Killing her.

She had caused this. She had started this raging inferno. She had to get out alive. If she didn't, all her hard work would have been in vain. She'd never see the sky. Never taste that sweet sunshine on her skin, never breath fresh air.

But this damned smoke was getting in the way of all that. Getting in the way of everything. Her eyes stung and watered everytime she tried to open them, her throat burned and itched everytime she tried to take a breath, and even her ears were useless, as the explosions had deafened her.

She'd planned this down to the smallest detail. This escape plan had seemed so fool-proof. She'd set off a series of chemical explosions when the scientist had taken her from her cell and into the lab room. She hadn't even had time to blink before Vera had attacked her chemicals.

But what she hadn't seen coming was that the bitch would slip out the door and lock it behind her, trapping her in the blazing room. Where no one would find her. The others had all been scheduled for various activities at the same time, and had distinct orders to bolt as soon as they heard the first explosions. To get out of the building before the final explosion. The one that would blow her to pieces if she didn't figure out how to get out of the room.

Suddenly, a hand was on her back, and another pushed her head down, out of the smoke into a small pocket of slightly fresher air below. She coughed and sputtered, trying to breathe it in like it would disappear at any minute. The air was still smoke filled, but it tasted so much better than the pure breaths of smoke she'd been breathing. She turned her head to see who had her. It was Alex, and she realized now that her legs and arms were moving. He was leading her towards something in the wall of smoke. A bright light. It seemed so close, and yet so distant at the same time.

Suddenly, they reached the light, and she turned to Alex to smile, only he was no longer there. She'd lost him in the smoke. Something moved in the light, and she stood slowly, stepping into it, expecting to come through to the outside.

But instead the dream shifted drastically. She was no longer at the Institute. She was trapped in a glass box, watching helplessly as everyone she loved was beaten and forced into dog crates. A man with a cruel smile came over. He had Boo by the hair. Boo. No. "You lead them to this." He sneered as he raised a gun to Boo's head.


Vera sat up with a start, shaking from head to toe. Her heart pounded so furiously in her chest, she was afraid it would break through. She glanced around, trying to grasp reality, allowing the fear of the dream to slowly seep away. She was in the forest. Nobody was in cages. They were safe. Well... Not safe. But as safe as a band of rebel mutants could be. The labs were still hunting them, but, for the moment, everything seemed to be in order.

She glanced upwards. Towards the sky. Dark still. Figured. Vera never slept more than a few hours at a time. Just an instinct, she supposed. With a sigh, she rolled to her hands and knees and stood carefully and quietly, not wanting to wake anyone. Today was a big day and everyone would need their sleep. The Revolution Vera's group had run into was performing a raid on an Institute today, and, unfortunately, the one condition their leader had given her and her escapee's was that they had to participate in any movement, or raid they organized. She didn't like the rule. It put her group, people she'd grown up with, and people she'd practically raised, people whose lives were in her hands, in danger. However, many of her group did not know how to survive on the outside on their own, and the Revolution did. Vera hated to admit it, but they needed their help.

She glanced over the others. Her group tended to stay close together, as did the other group. There was a serious trust issue between the two groups, as well as their leaders. Vera and Aindreas. She'd never asked to be leader. She didn't even really want to be. They kind of just nominated her as their leader, and she'd had no choice but to accept. Aindreas seemed like a good leader. Much surer of his position than Vera was, but that did not mean she trusted him in the least bit. And that did not mean she was going to hand over her role to him, handing the lives of everyone she loved into his hands. She respected what he did for the mutants but that was about it.

Carefully, Vera stepped over sleeping bodies until she reached the perimeter of their camp where one of the only other conscious souls sat, staring up at the sky. Aindreas's kind-of-creepy little sister. She usually kept watch for several reasons. One, she seemed to genuinely enjoy the night. Two, she woke up screaming, almost every time she tried to sleep at night, practically advertising their location to anyone with ears. And finally, Aindreas wouldn't allow her to participate in the raids. Which really pissed her off. Sure she was his sister, and sure, she probably wouldn't be much use anyway, but her life was no more valuable than the lives of the others.

Vera was careful not to touch her as she sat on the rock next to her. "Go lay down or something. You might not sleep well, but you should at least rest. I've got watch." As if to finalize her point, that she wasn't moving, Miatta, her fox Familiar, curled up on Vera's feet and looked up at the girl, golden eyes blinking slowly.

Once the girl had walked off, Vera leaned back on her arms and looked up at the sky. The raid later on made her a little nervous. Not for herself, but for the others. There was so much pressure on her shoulders to make sure they came out of it okay. To make sure they achieved their goal and saved the mutants at the Institute. To make sure she didn't lose anyone. She glanced over towards Boo and Alex. As soon as Boo woke, she'd have a talk with her. She'd make her stay back from the raid. She didn't care what Aindreas said, if he was allowed to keep people back, so was she. Plus anyway, someone had to watch the camp.

Adalind sat on the cool grey rock at the edge of camp, looking up at the star-filled sky, eyes closed. Her pale skin glowed harshly in the moonlight, but the light of the stars falling on it felt like velvet. The softest of touches. Songs drifted towards her through the night. Songs inaudible to anyone but her or another Aurora. The diamond around her neck sang her a low, slow, sorrowful song, while the diamonds of the sky, the stars, sang her a sweet, romantic, lullaby, the two songs mixing, blending, weaving in and out of each other, in the most beautiful way.

However, her attention was split. To anyone just looking at her, they would see her sitting there and assume that she was simply stargazing. Maybe even dozing off a bit as she did so. However, despite the fact that her wide black eyes were turned up to the sky, and music floated through her mind, she was actually extremely attentive to her surroundings.

A pin falling would cause her to jump. Her ears were focusing on every sound of the forest around her, sounds of animals, the sound of the gentle breeze rustling leaves, even the sound of the beach waves quite a ways away, listening for any abnormalities. Anything out-of-place. Her skin prickled as the breeze coming off the ocean tickled it, making her hairs stand on end. As if she could simply sense the presence of something unnatural.

However, she did not sense Vera coming up behind her. The Sly had a way of moving eerily silently. As if she never disturbed anything but the air around her.

Ada opened her wide black eyes and watched as Vera carefully avoided touching her when she moved around to sit next to her. It wasn't uncommon that people shied away from Adalind. For one thing, Aindreas was extremely protective of her, so people stayed away for fear of setting off his temper. For another, she was generally silent and observant, sending off a somewhat unapproachable vibe to people around her. But Vera wasn't ducking away for either of these reasons. Vera was trying not to make skin-on-skin contact with Adalind because she knew what she could do. The third reason people generally stayed away from her were her powers. People didn't like the idea of someone, a complete stranger, being privy to their deepest secrets and most repressed memories. They didn't like being around someone who could drive you insane or cause you pain if you merely said the wrong thing. Not that she would ever do that, people just tended to be cautious.

She smiled gently at Vera and didn't make any move to touch her. If the girl was uncomfortable with Addie knowing her business, that was perfectly normal, and she wasn't about to make her reveal anything she didn't want to. Silently, she wondered if the girl was here to keep her company, she rather liked company. She didn't get it often.

"Go lay down or something. You might not sleep well, but you should at least rest. I've got watch." The Sly whispered and Ada tried to keep her smile from drooping as she sighed, nodded, and stood, picking her way back across the sleeping mutants towards her brother.

When she reached him, she lay gently next to him, careful not to make too much noise, and stared up at the stars. She wouldn't be going to sleep until she saw the sun. Nightmares never left her alone in the dark, and she loved the stars too much to sleep while they were out anyway. However, a little rest would be nice.She turned her head, watching her brother's face briefly before turning back to the sky again.

Boo fell asleep unwillingly that night, as always she had refused to fall asleep because of the nightmares that plagued her when her eyes closed but Vera and Alex demanded that she actually got a couple hours of sleep at least. So she found a corner away from everyone besides Alex and Vera, Sombra laid beside her to keep her warm and because she hadnt slept at all the last couple nights she fell asleep quickly but her dreams were not pleasant.

Boo was in a cage, the room was dark, she felt alone. Then there was screaming, she put her hands to her ears as she tried to block out the sounds. The lights went on and in front of the cage there was Vera and Alex, but they werent moving and there was blood, alot of blood. A ear piercing scream escaped her throat and then hunters grabbed her from the cage "Now you know what happens when you escapenfrom us". Her dreamed then changed to a pile of dead mutants, some she new some she didnt. She was then placed on a table and a man with a knife hovered over her "we are here to help you".

She woke up with a scream, her skin was drenched with sweat "Vera! Alex!" she whimpered, Sombra growled and nudged her a bit. She stood up shaking as she looked to see Alex's sleeping form but didnt see Vera which made her worry. "Vera" she whimpered as she looked around the camp, she finally found the older girl. Sombra followed Boo as she made her way over to Vera and sat down, she knew Vera peobably heard her scream, "I don't understand why Alex and you make me sleep ir does no use" she said in a very quiet tone, she was always a soft speaker when/if she talked. Sombra laid down near her and pushed at her hand a bit with her nose then sprawled out a bit. "Did you have a dream too?"

That night Andy didn't lay down till all the mutants were sleeping or at least resting, he was still kinda weary of the escapee mutants that found them. The only reason he agreed to let them stay was because it will help them with the raid and maybe he could finally find Amelia. If only it was that easy, his mind wandered to his sisters before he fell asleep laying on his back. He wasnt wearing a shirt and was only wearing a pair of khaki shorts, his arms rested under his head.

A scream awoke him from his sleep and he sat up and quickly looked around, he then saw Ada laying beside him looking up to the sky. He opened up his senses to try to sense if their was any danger around bur he felt nothing. "Someone must of had a nightmare" he quietly said to Ada but decided to take a look around just in case "Ill be right back."

Andy stood up and walked around the camp, he saw that most of the mutants were either resting or sleeping. He did notice Vera and the girl that Vera called Boo but others called Raven. He wasnt sure what to make of the young stripe, she seemed very...he wasnt sure what to think of the girl but he could tell that Vera and the girls brother Alex was protective of the girl. He gave them a nod then continued walking throught camp until he got back to his original place beside Ada.

He sat down and had what mpst called his thinking face on, he sat there in silence for a few until he looked down at Ada "Do you think we can trust them? The hunters are probably on their trail which will lead them right to us. I have a bad feeling about this and I really dont like that. Is it wrong of me for not wanting to truly help them?" He laid down on his back with his arms under his head as he contemplated his thoughts. "Will they actually be helpful in the raid or are they just going to make it worse for us".

Vera started slightly at the sound of a scream, and knew instantly who it had come from. Boo. Instantly, she whipped around to make sure everything was okay. "Vera! Alex!" The girl whimpered clearly over the soft sounds of sleeping bodies. It was just a dream. Boo was still here. Nobody had snatched her. Vera smiled softly at the girl as she made her way over and sat next to her on the cold rock. "I don't understand why Alex and you make me sleep it does no use" she said quietly. Vera watched her Familiar lay down, causing Miatta, her own Famliar, to move a little closer and touch tails ever so gently with Boo's. It was rare for Miatta to accept anyone other than Vera herself.

"Because you need to sleep, Boo." She finally answered the girl, tearing her eyes away from their Familiars and placing them on her friend's.

"Did you have a dream too?" Boo asked.

It was an innocent question. The girl was merely inquiring, nothing sinister. However, her shoulders stiffened, as they always did when someone asked about her feelings. She had to fight the urge to turn away from Boo coldly. Vera. This is Boo. Relax. She heard Miatta's soft voice in her head, and sighed, doing as the fox said, allowing herself to reach out to Boo and pull her close, in a comforting way. "Yeah. I had a dream." She answered, squeezing her friend ever so slightly at the thought of the dream. The way that man had held Boo so roughly, gun to her head...

Vera forced herself to stop thinking about it and sighed, turning to Boo with a soft smile. "We all have dreams." These moments were so rare for Vera, where she acted kind, and motherly, and she wasn't sure quite what to say, but she hoped she'd said enough.

Another presence on her other side, made Vera turn away from comforting Boo. Rarely, did anyone ever see the side of Vera she'd just displayed. Pretty much, only if you were on the receiving end of it, did you even know she had that side to her. The other 99% of the time, she was her normal self. Cold, sometimes sarcastic, serious, and tromping about like she had the world on her shoulders. "Worried about the raid today?" The boy on her other side asked, and she merely shrugged. "I know I'm uneasy about it. I don't want to go back to one of those places. But I guess we have to."

"Only for you guys. I rarely worry about myself." She glanced at him, then up as Aindreas walked by, patrolling the camp. She looked up at the sky to see that the sun was peaking out from behind the trees, and behind her, the camp sounded like it was waking up. Dawn. They were supposed to gather the groups and head out.

She sighed, looking at Boo, and Rekto, briefly. "Get ready to move." She said, before standing.

Not you Boo, you're going to stay here. I don't care what Fearless Leader over there says, you're going to watch the camp with his sister. She sent to Boo telepathically, before Warping, disappearing, and reappearing some ways away, beside the laying down Aindreas. She glanced at his wide-eyed little sister, before crouching next to him. "What's the hold up? You said dawn." She gestured to the sky. "Well it's dawn. Decide to take a sick day?" She smirked, standing over him. So, are we going to go over a plan here, or just wing it? She sent him.

For her group, her impeccable planning skills (the ones that had almost gotten her killed on their break-out) were part of the reason she'd been named leader, the other parts she suspected were her age, as she was one of the oldest, and whatever else made them choose her, still lay undiscovered. She looked down at Aindreas, ready to whip up a plan on the spot, if he didn't already have one. The Revolution raids were not only about saving mutants. They were about causing as much damage to the institutes as possible, which mean that, even if the got in there and there was no one to save, they'd still have to completely score the place, destroying files, breaking equipment, setting things on fire. Personally, Vera like the method of escape she'd used best. Just blow the place sky-high. However, if there were mutants inside, that presented a huge problem. Vera herself had just barely escaped the first time, thanks to Alex. As she thought about it, Vera absentmindedly rubbed the burn scar behind her ear, waiting for Aindreas's response. They had to get going soon. The sooner the better.

She crouched again leaning slightly over him, eyes on Adalind as she spoke. "And... By the way..." She gestured to his sister, then turned her blue eyes down on his. "If you get to keep one of yours back, I'm keeping one of mine back. Boo stays here to watch the camp with your sister." She whispered, her stare challenging, daring him to oppose her.

Adalind was startled out of her star-gazing when Aindreas stirred beside her. "Someone must of had a nightmare" He said softly, and Ada nodded. "Ill be right back." She watched him go, before looking back to the sky. Only, the songs coming from them were growing fainter and fainter now, as the sun started to rise, drowning out their voices with it's brilliance. Her eyes remained on the sky, but instead, her ears focused on the camp around her, listening to to hushed conversations and sounds of waking. Some people would accuse her of eavesdropping, but Adalind just liked to listen. She was a people-watcher. She liked to observe things. She'd never listen to someone's conversation in order to use it against them, only to understand them better.

Adalind sat up and glanced about. Her brother was patrolling, and nearly everyone was awake now. The sun was not yet high in the sky, and you could not see it yet, for, when surrounded by trees, there was no horizon to watch the sunrise, but Adalind always knew when it was dawn, because the stars stopped singing.

She glanced up as her brother came back and layed back down beside her. He seemed to be pondering something, and she watched his face with deep, black eyes, waiting for him to speak, not wanting to interrupt his thinking. "Do you think we can trust them? The hunters are probably on their trail which will lead them right to us. I have a bad feeling about this and I really don't like that. Is it wrong of me for not wanting to truly help them?" He finally said, and Adalind, expecting more, remained quiet until he finished. "Will they actually be helpful in the raid or are they just going to make it worse for us?" He asked, and Adalind sensed that he was done.

She thought about it herself for a minute, before speaking softly, as she always did. Very rarely did Adalind talk, because, very rarely, did people want to talk to her. Most people even doubted she had a voice. However, once you got her going, sometimes it was impossible to stop. She looked at the fire-haired leader of the Runaways. She seemed trustworthy enough, if she'd only get over her lack of trust, however, seeing as what they'd just come out of, Adalind couldn't blame her. Aindreas had saved her a while ago, but she still had trouble trusting people, and if it was in your nature not to trust, like Ada could see it was in Vera's, then it made the act nearly impossible.

"I think they're... Okay." She finally responded. "I've never seen such a large group of runaways, sure, but their story seems legit. There's no way they're working with the hunters." She shook her head. "No one can pretend fear and pain that well, trust me." She said, knowing he would. She was probably the best judge of character around. She had a way of seeing into people, and understanding them with only a glance. "However, you never know if they'll flake out." She shrugged. "Some of them don't seem very strong or... Stable." She glanced at Vera. "And their leader doesn't seem to think she's cut out for the job... Plus, there's always the Institute's to worry about. Maybe this group does't know that they're bugged or something. Maybe the institute let them escape, knowing they'd find us. They're that low. They're that devious." She said with a shudder, remembering her own experiences. "I don't think trusting them fully just yet, is a good idea, but don't be too harsh on them Aindreas." She pleaded with her older brother. "I know the place they're coming from, and trust me, it's not pretty."

She twisted her hands in her lap and looked over all the escapee's. "As for their usefulness in the raid... I think we'll have to see for ourselves on that one. If they escaped from that hell, they've got to be pretty damn tough, however, you never know. Once in those doors again..." She shook her head and looked away, struggling to remain calm. Talking about her time in the Institute sometimes caused her to slip into madness. "Once back there, they may crack." She forced herself to say. "There are a hundred different reactions they could have, from anger, to fear, to madness."

With a sigh, she stopped talking and looked up as, out of the corner of her eye, a bright spot of red appeared out of nowhere. She focused on it, realizing that it was Vera, Warping over to talk to her brother. Realizing her place, Adalind sat back slightly and just watched the red-haired girl, playing with a long lock of jet-black hair. "What's the hold up? You said dawn." The girl said with obvious snark. "Well it's dawn. Decide to take a sick day?" Ada glanced back at her brother, wondering how he would respond, when the red haired Sly crouched once more to whisper something inaudible to Aindreas, though her eyes were on Ada at first. Not wanting to hold her gaze, Ada looked at the girl's Familiar, who was sitting at her side daintily, tail wrapped gently over her paws as her golden eyes narrowed lazily on Adalind. The Familiar's gaze was untrusting and made Ada squirm a bit. It made her feel like she was being seen into. Like the girl's creature was revealing her soul. Silently she wondered if that was how people felt around her. If that was part of the reason people didn't like to talk to her. It wasn't her fault really, that she had powers that allowed her to see more than what she wanted to see, but for the first time, probably ever, the tables were turned, and she had to say, she didn't like it.

Boo pulled her knees up to her chest and leaned her chin on her knees and shivered slightly. She watched as Sombra turned her attention to Vera's familiar. Sombra swished her tail a bit then laid down on her side, she only got close to other familiars if Boo was close to their person like Vera. "Because you need to sleep, Boo." Vera's voice snapped her out of spacing and she turned to face Vera. "I wish I didn't" she whispered.

When Vera stiffened she worried that she said something wrong, she looked down at her feet and let the silence fill around them. Feeling Vera pull her close made her look up to the older girl. It was very rare that she let anyone touch her, the scientists always seemed to have their hands on her but none of their touches were comforting, they were always rough, never caring what they were doing to her. "Yeah. I had a dream." Boo heard Vera's response but she didn't push to know what the dream was because she knew how it was with the nightmares, never wanting to speak of them because it would make them feel more real. "We all have dreams." Boo didn't respond to Vera's statement because Rekto came over.

Vera let her go and Boo curled up with her knees to her chest once more. She listened to their conversation but kept quiet. It was very rare if Boo talked to others besides Vera or Alex. Sombra looked up to her You are okay Boo, the tigress gave her a small nudge again. Hearing Vera give her a message to her mind made her look up to the older girl Not you Boo, you're going to stay here. I don't care what Fearless Leader over there says, you're going to watch the camp with his sister. Her eyes went wide and shook her head, she was about to argue that she didn't want to stay back but Vera already disappeared.

She didn't want to leave Vera or Alex's side, for one she didn't do well when left alone and she hardly knew the girl she would be staying at camp with. What if something happens to them? What if they get caught or d.. she couldn't finish her though. Sombra stood up as she heard Boo's thoughts Boo they are looking out for you, you are not ready to go back into that kind of environment and your eye sight is getting worse. Now come Boo get on my back. Lets find the girl you will be staying with. Boo didn't question Sombra and slid on the tigress's back.

Sombra strode through the camp until she laid eyes on the Aurora thats her Boo. Boo eyed the girl but then her eyes went to Vera who was speaking to Aindreas, her eyes stayed focused on them for a few moments then back to the black haired girl. The tigress could feel Boo's uneasiness so she strode to a corner where no one else was and laid down. Boo slid down to the ground and curled her fragile body against Sombra.

As soon as Aindreas stopped talking Kefir strolled in from the forest and instead of laying beside Andy he laid beside Ada "I thinks he likes you more than me" he huffed and nodded to Kefir. He heard a chuckle come from his familiar and he just shook his head. When Ada started talking all his focus went to her.

"I think they're... Okay. I've never seen such a large group of runaways, sure, but their story seems legit. There's no way they're working with the hunters. No one can pretend fear and pain that well, trust me." He nodded his head at Ada's words, she was the only person he truly trusted, so her words did mean something to him. "However, you never know if they'll flake out. Some of them don't seem very strong or... Stable." He agreed with Ada there, he noticed a few of Vera's group were not exactly ones he would pick to take into a raid, especially the half blind girl. "And their leader doesn't seem to think she's cut out for the job... Plus, there's always the Institute's to worry about. Maybe this group does't know that they're bugged or something. Maybe the institute let them escape, knowing they'd find us. They're that low. They're that devious." Andy frowned at Ada's words, he didn't think Vera was cut out for the leader position either but he has yet to tell anyone his thoughts on that. "I don't think trusting them fully just yet, is a good idea, but don't be too harsh on them Aindreas. I know the place they're coming from, and trust me, it's not pretty." He heard the pleading in his sisters voice and sighed "I will take your words into consideration Ada" he said then noticed Ada was not done talking quite yet ans it auprised her because his sister was not much of a talker. "As for their usefulness in the raid... I think we'll have to see for ourselves on that one. If they escaped from that hell, they've got to be pretty damn tough, however, you never know. Once in those doors again...Once back there, they may crack. There are a hundred different reactions they could have, from anger, to fear, to madness."

Before he could say anything in response to Ada Vera popped in and Kefir growled at the intrusion. He eyed the red head as she crouched near him, making him sit up and stare into her eyes "What's the hold up? You said dawn. Decide to take a sick day?" He let his own growl and the girls words and before he could even respond he heard Vera's voice in his mind which pissed him off just a tad.So, are we going to go over a plan here, or just wing it? He had already enough of the red head and stood up.

"First of all I do not like you warping in here unannounced" he clenched his hands into fists "I was having a conversation with my sister and I don't take sick days" he growled deeply "and for your last question I sorta have a plan but I need to know what yours can do. I plan on setting up a ring of fire around the insititute except for one place where we will have one stand guard at. Half of us will go through the front entrance the other through the back. We see if there are any one to save, if not we get out of there and I set the place on fire".

Seeing Vera gesture to his sister he cocked his eyebrow "And... By the way...If you get to keep one of yours back, I'm keeping one of mine back. Boo stays here to watch the camp with your sister." He took a few minutes trying to remember which one was Boo, he then remembered the girl following Vera and the boy named Alex around and also remembered she was the half blind one. "Shes ths half blind girl right? Well I don't mind that, she would probably keep us back if she came but if she stays she listens to Adalind" he gazed to his sister then to Vera.

Kefir noticed the fox eyeing Adalind and the lion growled lightly at the fox before putting his head on Ada's lap. Aindreas noticed Emerald come over and nodded to her "Em can you make sure everyones up and ready to go in fifteen".

Rekto Nugen

"Only for you guys. I rarely worry about myself." said Vera. "Get ready to move." The leader of the escapees stood up and warped away. Rekto nodded and stood up as well. Turning to the girl sitting nearby he said, "Good morning, Boo." He smiled a little at her, hoping it would reassure her. After that he turned to gather up his meager possesions. He wasn't the greatest at holding a conversation, especially with someone as quiet as Boo. Other people might not have anything to say, be bored of him, rather be thinking, or just want to be left alone. Rekto knew there were times when he wanted to be left alone, although that was rare.

Reaching the spot he had rested at, Rekto opened the small canvas bag that contained his few treasures. Shrike flitted down to the ground next to him and eyed the bag. "Just take what you need. You don't need all of that. Leave the bag behind, it's too bulky." Rekto nodded and took out his pocket knife, putting it in his pocket. After a moment of thought he took a finely sharpened pencil from its case, wrapped the point in a cloth, and put it in his pocket, too. He had found that with weapons it was a good idea to improvise, especially because he had no offensive powers and weapons were awfully scarce.

The sun was fully up by now. Rekto shifted on his feet before beginning to pace in circles anxiously. He was going back to the Institute, back to one of those hellish places full of pain and hateful people and misery and despair and loss and and and... Rekto trailed off, breathing heavily. "Don't get yourself all worked up. We haven't even started going there," Shrike said in a placating voice. The bird Familiar nevertheless betrayed his own anxiety by a shudder passing through his feathered form. Mastering, or at least toning down, his fear, Rekto said quietly, "We will be fine." He just hoped the statement was true.


Mathias Quinn

Mathias watched as a kid came to the breakfast area and sat down with some food and a computer. Mathias studied the newcomer for a second before turning back to his plate. He wanted to leave the city as soon as possible. Too many people freaked him out, for one, and when there were no people around Nox could come out of the backpack. The snake Familiar didn't like hiding, but she saw it as a necessary evil. Nevertheless, Mathias wanted her to come out as soon as possible.

The hotel manager and a security guard came into the room. Mathias tensed, ready to stand up and leave if the situation soured. But instead they went for the computer kid. "No freeloaders!" the manager said. The kid fell over and rolled to his feet, looked at the manager and spoke to him. Mathias couldn't make out the words, but whatever he said appeased the man and the manager left. "That was odd," Nox said in his mind, having picked up the details from her human. Mathias nodded but didn't give the situation any more thought. It wasn't his business.

Soon enough the security guard returned to question the kid. Mathias watched as the guard grabbed the kid only to fall over in a daze. After asking the guard if he was okay, the kid spoke in an undertone to the guard, which satisfied the guard. By now Mathias was tense and ready to move. Then the kid took a picture of him with his computer.

This was enough for Mathias. It was bad enough to be caught on the security cameras of the stores he visited. It was even worse to be photographed by some random stranger who seemed to be some sort of Mutant. What if this kid was with the Mutant hunters and was gathering information on possible suspects? Mathias knew that Serpent Mutants were rare and nearly unheard of in human society, but that didn't mean that scientists hadn't found out about his species.

Mathias stood up and tossed his plate in the trash. He started to walk towards the checkout desk, making sure to take a route that would take close to the kid. Shifting his backpack, he purposefully stumbled and put his hand on the kid's table to support himself. "Whoops, sorry about that," he said, loud enough for anyone to hear. Then, in an undertone, he said, "What business do you have with taking my picture?" He looked into the kid's eyes, ready to activate his power if need be. If necessary he would break the computer, hopefully destroying whatever evidence the kid had collected.

Leif Anderson

Leif's ears swiveled to the maximum, straining to catch the slightest sound. His whiskers twitched as a slight breeze ruffled his fur, the wind carrying the distinct smell of disinfectant. The Institution was unaware of the small cat form crouched in the grass a couple yards from its door, just how Leif liked it. "Probably want to head back. Camp's not extremely close, and the longer we stay here the higher the chance of discovery," Shawn said.

Leif nodded and crept away from the building. When he felt confident it was safe he stood up and ran, stretching his cat muscles to the limit. In the half light of early dawn his eyes could still see with razor sharp acuity thanks to his merging with his Familiar. It was a gift to be able to see clearly without the need for glasses.

His paws ate up the distance and soon enough he could smell the members of the Revolution along with the escapees from one of the Institutions. With a sigh he split himself from Shawn, reverting back to human form. He stood up, disoriented for a moment as he usually was from becoming human again. He walked into camp and made his way to Aindreas. The leader of the Revolution was in a conversation with Adalind and the the escapee leader, Vera. For a moment he hesitated, not wanting to interrupt the conversation. "Go on, you know they don't bite," Shawn said, nodding a greeting to the present Familiars.

Clearing his throat, Leif stepped forward and said, "Good morning. Aindreas, the Institution isn't active right now. I only saw one guard on patrol and he looked pretty tired. There are two doors, a main entrance and a back door that has some sort of fancy electronic lock on it." Leif adjusted his glasses, hoping his speech wasn't too redundant. He just wanted to be as clear as possible about the place they were raiding. "There's a large window on the ground floor, too. I'm guessing because of that they keep the captives in higher floors or underground," he finished, looking his leader in the eye.

Damien's agitation left as quickly as it came, the flash of emotion that rolled off of him left a bitter taste in her mouth. "Not that I should have to explain my decisions to you, but, the girl I killed was not on the list of mutants we're required to take alive. My orders are that I have to return only those that are on the list, and if I can recapture anyone else, but if not, then they can be killed if they have to be." The urge to argue with him was strong but Mackenzie suppressed it. That pathetic feline did not 'have to be' killed as Damien made it seem. Though truthfully she couldn't see that the feline would have been any use if she had been allowed to live, that didn't mean she deserved to die. In the end it wasn't her place to make those choices. Instead of saying how she felt, Mackenzie simply nodded and followed him to the rest of the camp. She took a seat on a fallen tree that was now mostly hollowed out and, if her nose was right, was recently home to some raccoons. Niveus sat beside her gently nudging her knee gently "You shouldn't have to hide you're feelings or you're true nature" the white wolfs voice whispered across her mind, there was no judgement but Mackenzie could tell she disapproved "And what would become of me if I was me, not their little solider?" Niveus huffed at her but didn't say anymore about it. "You should pay attention to the over sized cat while he's telling his grand plan." Mackenzie bit her lip to hide her smirk, her wolf was never fond of fallowing the orders of a cat, not even a big cat.

After Damien laid out the next course of action he dismissed them to go and break down camp, not that there was much for her to break down, Mackenzie didn't bring much with her on hunts only necessities. Once she was done she went and sat on the same tree she had before, her back to the rest of the group. Staring out into the trees she could almost hear the wilds call out to her, like her name was being carried along and whispered by the wind. "We could always go, just run. Run until we couldn't hold ourselves up any more. Until we are about to pass out from exhaustion." Mackenzie smiled at the thought as she reached down and scratched between Niveus' ear. "As nice as that sounds we would still never be free." She said looking over her shoulder. "Not so long as they still have her." That flock was as pathetic as the feline but she was useful and that's why she was still around. Mackenzie felt sorry for her but she couldn't be in contact with her too much, the emotions that girl felt, the anger, pain, the loss of hope, it was all too much sometimes.

"Em can you make sure everyone's up and ready to go in fifteen." Vivianna looked up at her leader and she nodded then looked back at Adalind as she got up "When we get back we'll look at them and see if one connects with you ok?" giving her a warm smile Vivianna left to gather up the rest of the group. Alex and another escapee were sitting and talking when she approached and cleared her throat."Sorry to interrupt but we're gathering everyone for the raid, just head on over to Aindreas and he'll go over the plan when everyone is present." Smiling and giving a plite nod she wondered off to the next escapee, a pride, who was making her way towards the rest of the group. "Hey everyone's gathering for the pre-raid meeting, go ahead and join up with everyone." On her way to the last escapee She passed by the little stripe girl and gave her a small wave, she was a cute kid. The last escapee was a flock, and by the looks of it he was anxious. "Hey there, I'm Emerald. The others are gathering now to talk about the raid, you should join us." She smiled and waved for him to follow her and she walked back to the group.

Pausing a moment she looked at all the others, she was worried. Would all of them be able to handle going back into another institute? Could they handle that? What if they were like those people she read about once who had been in wars and had flashbacks when something or someone would trigger a memory of the times they were in active duty. She wasn't just worried about her team and the possibility that one of the escapees would cost them their lives but also for the escapee's themselves. After all they had been through could they really keep it together or would this just damage them more? Taking a deep breath Vivianna decided to voice her concerns when everyone was gathered around. It was defiantly something to be discussed and thought upon.

"How about you go find um the girl Boo and get aquainted with her? Also, make sure to keep your eyes peeled and use your abilities if you have to Adalind." Aindreas said to her and she nodded and bit her lip. She hated using her abilities, but she would if she had to, that was for sure. For one of them, she didn't even have the option. It was controlled soley on her emotions and fear level.

"Thanks, Soñadora," Leif said to her, and Adalind smiled as she always did when he used the nickname. At her leg, Lief's Familiar Shawn purred and rubbed against her, so she gently bent to touch his soft fur before raising again. "We'll be fine. Watch camp well, ok? It's just as important of a job."

Adalind smiled again, liking the way he referred to her job as important. She couldn't say that sometimes she felt a bit left out when they left her behind, and sometimes she doubted if she was even doing anything important, so hearing that she was needed was nice. "I will." She assured him before waving and turning back to Emerald, who was speaking again.

"When we get back we'll look at them and see if one connects with you ok?" It took Ada a minute to remember that she was talking about the gems, and she nodded, agreeing. "Sounds like a good idea." She said, tucking a piece of long black hair behind her ear as the girl sauntered off to call everyone together for the plan.

Now alone, with nothing and no one to talk to, Addie decided to take Aindreas's advice, and go find the girl he was talking about. Boo. With deep black eyes, she glanced around the camp until her eyes landed on the small girl and her tiger near the edge of the camp, and she made her way over.

"Hi." She said softly, standing before the girl, shifting her feet a little awkwardly. "I'm Adalind. We'll be staying back to watch camp together."

"I could keep it up for about fifteen minutes, ten if you wanted me to cover the roof, too. Possibly a bit more, possibly a bit less. If I did this would you still want me to go in to the Institution?" Aindreas looked to Leif as he answered his question, he already had an answer but Vera decided to answer for him which annoyed him just a tad. Relax Andy, females just like to be in control Kefir spoke into his mind and he let out a sigh and nodded his head turning his attention to Vera who was speaking to Andy "I don't really think the roof is necessary, and I don't think you need to go into the institution Leif. That would cost us time with the shield up. So, pick yourself a partner, preferably one of my people, as I like Aindreas's suggestion to pair the two sides, and you guys will be on guard duty, okay?" What Vera said was sorta what he was going to tell Leif so he couldn't say anything against it. "Just kinda stay near the entrance Leif, and pair yourself with someone that has an offensive ability just in case someone attacks you."

Hope you're okay with all this. He heard Vera's voice in his mind and looked at her just giving the sly a silent nod jjst as Vera continued on. "Boo and Ada stay here, like we discussed." He nodded, he was actually glad Ada wouldn't be alone "And Leif and his partner watch the place while the rest of us head in, each with a partner. You said the prisoners will probably be on the lower levels? Okay, so Aindreas and I will partner up, and we'll take the lower levels. The rest of the groups will wok in partners to destroy the place, collect any files that are important, and keep our path back up from below open. Meanwhile, Lief here, keeps his field up, and when we're ready, we all head out a hole in the wall that he makes, and head for the cover of the trees." He actually liked Vera's plan, it was solid and they would be able to get done what they needed.

"Everyone find a partner. Revolution members, partner up with my people." He looked over to Vera before looking over the group, the last raid they went to they lost a few members, so he was trying to figure out numbers when Vera interrupted his thoughts. "If you have nothing to add, we should probably leave. If you do, say it now. Sooner is better than later." He gave her a look "one group may have to have a third person, we are low on numbers and I believe you group has more members" he said as he looked to Leif and Emerald.

Just then Emerald spoke up and what she said he already thought about "I have something to say, or ask really. I agree with and understand the importance of pairing up with an escapee seeing as how they are inexperienced, but what's to guarantee that when we get in there and the fighting starts or just being back in a facility wont make you're people freeze up? No offence to any of you, I swear, but I'm not going in there and my partner has an incapacitating flashback. I've lived this long, so much longer than most, and I know that what I do is dangerous but I can count on myself to save my own skin, as I can the rest of my group. Are you sure your people are ready for the responsibility of another life?" He went over to Emerald and stood in front of her putting his hand on her shoulder "Em I see your point I do, but if we just went there would only be three of us. I can't speak for them but I have a feeling they will be fine. If anything happens just call for me and ill send Kefir. You are my right hand girl, I won't let anything happen to you." He said the last part in a low whisper then stepped back and looked at everyone.

"Alright everyone pair up and lets go, we don't have a lot of time" he said in his booming voice before he looked over to Vera "I will be shifting, its easier then walking the whole way". He always shifted into Kefir when he traveled to the institutes. He then looked for Ada and noticed her going over to the small stripe girl. He walked past everyone and towards Ada "we will be leaving now Ada, you know the drill. Stay safe...maybe ill find Amelia on this raid" he said with a hopeful voice before going over to Kefir and shifting into his full white lion form. He shook his body and then walked over to the group and waited for them to be all ready to go.

Alexander saw the girl(Emerald) from earlier approach, but he couldn't figure out a reason for her to approach. He was about to ask if the girl(Emerald) needed anything, but she answered his question before he asked it. "Sorry to interrupt but we're gathering everyone for the raid, just head on over to Aindreas and he'll go over the plan when everyone is present." She was smiling when she said this, but this made Alexander frown a little. Were they already leaving so soon? He was about to say that he was going to see his sister before he saw Aindreas, but he decided not to bother. He wouldn't need to explain himself, would he? He wasn't necessarily afraid of the raid itself or going to another institute, but the idea of having to protect his sister and be a part of a raid at the same time didn't sound very

He didn't want to make Boo feel weak by having to protect her all the time, but he couldn't just leave her alone. Besides, it was his fault that they were both in this situation. Would it have been different if he hadn't caused that incident as a child? He convinced himself that it probably would have been worst and that Boo wouldn't have met her familiar. He couldn't be emotionally disturbed during a raid, and he knew this. He fell on his side, since he wasn't still completely awake. This awoke him fully, he laughed a bit. At least he wouldn't be falling down during the raid. He scanned the area and managed to find his sister, near another girl. He couldn't tell the other girl(Adalind)'s name, since he hadn't connected names to faces. He walked towards his sister and the other girl, hoping to not interrupt. He wasn't a saint, no, he was far from that. He had beat countless in the arena, to prove that he wouldn't back down in a fight. He had never actually damaged anyone, instead he simply overloaded a person's sensory inputs and cause them to black-out. He did fear laboratories and needles, but he feared losing his sister and Vera more.

He arrived shortly after Aindreas, not wanting to interrupt again. When he arrived, he had a calm smile on his face. He looked at the other girl, acknowledging the girl's presence. "Hello, good day to you." The words were sincere, but they were simply a greeting. He turned to his sister, and began talking, his voice laced with a somewhat melodic tone. "Sister," He rarely called Boo "sister" when addressing her, and when he did, it meant that something was bothering him. ", how are you holding up?" He would have asked other questions, but those were too personal to be asked in front of someone other than his sister. He would leave immediately to go meet Aindreas when he had finished there, unless his sister wanted him for something. He was slightly interested in the other girl, since he didn't remember who she was. He didn't feel a sense of danger from her, but he rarely did feel fear from being in the presence of others.

Boo

Boo was curled up beside Sombra when she sensed someone approaching, she was facing away from the camp so she had to sit up and turn around to see who had come to see her. She was hoping it was either Alex or Vera but it wasn't, it was one from the Revolution group, the girl that she would be staying back with. She wasn't happy that she was going to be away from Vera or Alex, what happened if she had one of her episodes and Alex wasn't here to calm her. She was glad that she wouldn't have to step back into the insititute, just thinking about it made her have a few flashbacks, She closed her eyes and her body shook a little, Sombra noticed this and gently nudged Boo Your okay Boo, you are not there any more. Your safe, Sombra spoke into her mind and calm her a bit.

"Hi." Boo opened her eyes as the other girl spoke "I'm Adalind. We'll be staying back to watch camp together." She wasn't sure what to say, she wasn't one to talk much unless she was with Vera or Alex and even then she was mostly quiet. You should at leat tell her who you are Boo, she isn't going to hurt you Sombra spoke into her mind trying to reassure her a convince her to be sociable. She looked down at her lap and spoke in a soft voice "Hello...I..um..Im Boo" she usually only let Vera or Alex call her Boo, she tolld others to call her Rave, but there was something about the girl that made her want to trust her.

She shrunk back into Sombra when the leader, Aindreas, came by and spoke to Adalind. The guy intimidated her a bit so she stayed quiet as the spoke. She saw Alex come over just as Aindreas left, she gave him a slight smile but she could tell something was bothering her brother when he began to talk. "Sister, how are you holding up" she shrugged a little, trying to figure out what to say to her brother. She was still upset that she was going to be away from Vera and her brother while they went on the raid but she couldn't form the words so she began using sign language that Alex and hr bother knew. Her hands moved fast as she was signing Vera told me I have to stay back, she doesn't want me going on the raid Alex. I am scared...what if something happens to either of you..I couldn't deal with that her emotions clearly showed on her face and she let out a small huff. She spoke her next question as she looked right at Alex, knowing he wouldn't be able to lie "wh..whats bothering you?"

Amelia spaced out a bit but was brought back to her unwanted reality when a familiar voice started to speak to her "Lucky day." she rolled her eyes behind the blindfold as Damien spoke, she really wished she could send a spirit to haunt Damien but she hasn't been able to use that ability in year because of the blindfold "Rajah has already scouted ahead and found the camp so we wont need you. However, you will be coming with us, just in case they moved last minute." She didn't say anything as she heard his footsteps leave, he yelled for Makenzie, saying that she would be the one to watch her.

Amelia thought lf Jayy and wished he was with her, she let out a sigh and rested her head against the tree. A different pair of footsteps came up to her ans this time she recognized the voice as Makenzie. "Can you stand on your own or do you need a hand? No offence but I feel the same about touching you as you do me." If Makenzie was able to see Amelia's eyes she would see that she was glaeing at her "No offence but you don't know how I really feel" she spat out, she was unable to see and her hands were tied behind her back but she did try to stand on her own but she kept losong her balamce. She was weak, they didn't feed her that much so she was always at the point of starving.

She didn't want Makenzie's help but she didn't see any other way "looks like ill need help" she murmered "and where is Sage...she will be coming right?" She hoped they would take her Familiar along, she has had to track without Sage before and in the end she passed out because of being too far from her.
