Matt

0 · 358 views · located in Anywhere but the Lab

a character in “The Outside”, as played by Auricambrflaym

Description

~Name: Matt Ambersbane
~Age:18/19 (ish)
~Gender:Male
~Mutation:Elemental (fire and shadow)
~Weaknesses:Water and Light, lack of air
~Description: Hair: Matt has shaggy jet black hair that is tinged red when in bright light (Which he avoids at pretty much all costs)
Eyes: Deepset, dark amber. Stands around 5'10", and weighs around 170 lb. Extremely lean build, meant more for speed than strength. Usually wears black and red clothing, in keeping with his abilities...
~Personality:(add if they are mentally broken or not. If they are, how why and what will set them off to be mad depressed ect.) matt is a very thoughtful, cunning person. In the lab, he came across as cruel, bloodthirsty and insane, but that's only half-true to his nature. In actuality, although being somewhat cruel natured, that is only to those hwho hurt him and/or those he cares about. he thinks out every possibility before acting, his mind going at hundreds of miles an hour when in battle. Otherwise, he's a kind, protective guy that would rather see everyone happy than in cages. Although not considered broken, he will go off on anyone that even attempts to hurt (physically, emotionally, or otherwise) His little "sister", Ash. He tends to keep to himself, hiding his problems behind either a bright, brotherly smile or a sinister, bloodthirsty glare.
~Fears:(you have been living you life scared, this should be as detailed as the personality and description) Matt only really has two fears: Death and Loss. He wouldn't be able to stand losing a friend, and would give his life for them. This doesn't mean he would be happily doing so; with all of the death he has caused during the Games, he is afraid that the souls of those he's killed will drag him down into what the Outsiders call "Hell." Basically, he just doesn't want to kill anyone, lose them, or be killed himself. *He often has nightmares about some of his more traumatizing killings.....*
~History:(any majior events that have happened in the lab or if you were taken into the lab instead of being born there) Matt and his born-mutant mother were taken when he was about five. It was there he had been changed, and put against his own mother in the Games. Being the last two, it was him or her; she chose herself, and allowed her fear-crazed son rip her apart with his new, still painful to use gifts. When he was around twelve, he rescued a little girl, Ash, from a guard's beating. She called him "Big Brother," not knowing his real name for years. She too, went against him in the Games. When he dealt a "final blow," She exploded into a cloud of her namesake, pronounced dead. For years after, matt was considered by all the others insane, as he talked to Ash(who remained unseen) constantly, as though she were sitting beside him.

So begins...

Kyra blinked, as the words entered her head just as she was sucked back into her own body. She didn't how the heck she got into Matt's head and she didn't even know what she did, but she didn't care. Noticing that her body has fallen while she wasn't in it, she picked herself off the aspalt. Shaking out her fur and flexing her claws just to make sure they were still intact she relazed her joints, and rememeber about Sabrie.

Kyra forgot about the car, Matt, and the not right human, as she looked at Sabrie. Bloody roses. Oak leaves. Lavender. All mixed together, Kyra stepped forward and inhaled the scent then walked up to Sabrie and purred. This human is going to be important to the other mutants. Sabrie is important now. Kyra didn't know where the statement came from, but she somehow knew it was right.

The Calico cat appeared from behind Kyra, stared up at Sabrie and sniffed. "You had to choose this one?" He asked as he picked up his paw and started to clean it. "What?" Kyra asked suprised by what he said. Choose? The Calico ignored her qustion, stood and started to rub himself against Sabrie's leg, while talking to her. Kyra doubted Sabrie understood what the Calico was saying to her, but Kyra did. He was saying, "Pet me." She sat down and started to do what the Calico was doing. She wasn't rubbing herself against Sabrie, but purring while leaning her massive head into Sabrie, as if too asking to be petted.

Kyra kept purring barely noticing when Matt walked over and offering his hand to the Calico. The Calico kept rubbing himself against Sabrie, stopped and looked at the human. Not even looking at his hands, the Calico strode forward and started to rub himself against Matt's knee for awhile but taking off, to some unknown destination. Kyra stopped purring to watch her friend leave. Her ears twitched as she mentally sighed. Every time that cat appeared she kept trying to ask him what his name is, but he keeps eluding her.

Kyra sat down heavily then looked at Sabrie then at Matt as if asking what to do now. She didn't know what to do, now.

The Strange Man
He looked through the glass, and saw the purple force field. It was in the middle of the white room, going from the floor to the ceiling and was about four feet wide. Their recent creation to stop the mutants from spreading. The 'Forcefeild' wasn't just a forcefeild. It was like electric fence that kept out mutants. Any mutant or human that showed the signs of 'Mutantness' or had extra brain power would get just a tiny shock if they put their finger through. Put their entire arm through and their brain shuts down. They go all the way through and their entire body shuts down, with only a one percent chance of surviving. It was also power proof. If the mutant had control of an element, it still didn't matter, the force feild would just reflect their power. He smiled as he thought of his next move now that the weapon was created.

THEY were the chess peices, and he was the game master.

Kyra looked at Sabrie when the blonde girl spoke talking about a dream, circus and then she mentioned her name. Not knowing what she was doing Kyra shifted stood and smiled at Sabrie showing her sharp teeth, "Nice to meet another human." Her first three words sounded odd and strange coming from her, because she had never said them at all to another living being. "I'm...." Kyra cocked her head to the left and frowned. Looking at Matt she asked, "Who am I?" She had forgotten her name. Matt explained what she was but she didn't understand.

Kyra's hands began to shake violently, her breathing becoming labored as she clenched her muscles. Something was wrong. She froze, unmoving, emotionless she tried to push this feeling back. The feeling of being sick, and the urge to vomit. Just stop fighting it. Go to sleep. You'll wake up. I promise., the voice spoke urging her to stop fighting the feeling. Kyra didn't know the voice was bad, she couldn't remember but she did what it said anyways.

Kyra fell to her knees and vomited up blood and some chunks of raw meat. She vomited again and crawled backwards, her vision becoming blurry from the loss of oxygen. Her lungs seemed to stop working. Her blood became hot. Her nose flared but no oxygen came. Black shapes clouded her vision until she went entirely blind. She vomited again. She inhaled but no scents or oxygen came. She couldn't hear. She couldn't see. She could breathe. Breath faster!!! Her mind seemed to be telling her to breath faster, screaming for air she began to cough up some blood just as she let out an earsplitting scream. Noise. Noise. There was nothing but the noise that entered her head abruptly. Their screams. She could hear their pain filled screams. Of the ones she murdered. Her vision came with the image of an air elementalist screaming as he was ripped to shreds. By her. Then more images came, of the ones she killed. Blood. There was so much blood. And screams. She let out another earsplitting scream as she clutched her head trying to make it stop. Screams, images of her vistims flooded her entire being never stopping.

Kyra couldn't take this much but then everything stopped, just froze in place. There were no screams, no bloody images, but a peaceful dream of white emptiness. She had fallen unconcious right after the virus took over. She was asleep and she wouldn't wake up until they wanted her to. Not until she was in his grasp, would she wake. Until then, she would sleep and dream... and remember.

Creepy Man
He stayed seated in his very expensive chair and waited for the message, he'd been waiting for. The short blonde lady typed in some codes into her laptop then looked back at him. "The virus worked. She's asleep, and won't wake until you give the order." He smiled, but the smile didn't reach his eyes as he rubbed his hands together. "Good. Begin the 'Memory
Overload' and send in some mercenaries to retrieve my.... To retrieve the package." He spoke gruffly as he stood and went through his plan again. "Everythings going exactly as planned."

Kishan
Kishan watched the scene unfold. Matt had just used his shadows to conceal him and the human girl that had been with them. Then the ambulance people came out did some things to Kyra like checking her pulse and other stuff, but when they put her in the back of the ambulance, he stepped out of his car and stalked over to the back of the door quickly. He yanked the metal door off it's hinges, dragged some lady out of the back and through her harshly into the pavement. He heard a loud thud and some cracking, he approved of the sounds and dashed to the front of the truck. Opening the driver's door he pulled the guy out by his shirt and practically shoved him at the two suprised police officers. He heard some shots rang out, but they were just missed fires. Walking very quickly to the back of the ambulance he jumped in and jumped out holding the unconcious Kyra to his chest.

Not even bothering to look at the spot where Matt and Sabrie had vanished at, he moved directly to his car. He opened the door as he held Kyra with one hand, and then leaned in placing Kyra in the passenger's seat. He jumped, started the car and drove the heck out of there as if his tail were on fire.

Kishan was on the dirt road to his... house... Well he didn't live in a house but a Mansion where the creepy man would show up at later. He didn't want to see the creepy man or do his dirty work but how could he have turned this mission down, when the mission included seeing his best friend again. He glanced at Kyra as he turned a corner. She looked peaceful and almost human, but he knew better. Underneath her human disguise was a tiger waiting to be released to kill and destroy... and even love? He looked back at the road, cursed, and quickly changed the direction of the car, missing a tree by an inch or two. He looked back at Kyra, shook his head and shut the car off, parking in front of his mansion.

The Calico Cat
The Calico cat puffed up, and half hissed, half meowed at the arriving stranger, named Camelion. That human wasn't a good human, darkness followed him like a cloak and it's wasn't the good darkness like Matt's shadows. He let out another hiss and raised his tail forward like a scorpion raising it's tail to defend itself. His ears laid back he spat at the trouble maker in disguise. "Not a good human. Don't trusssst, him. Follow meee... Run!" The cat spoke to Sabrie before taking off for the trees running from the shadows thinking Sabrie and Matt were following.


Kyra
Kyra licked her lips then looked around again, looking for a way out here. There was something familiar about Kishan, and there was also a feeling of... anger at Kishan. She didn't know what he did but she was angry at him. She couldn't remember so she was just going to do as he says. It was also sort of a relief to meet someone who knew about her past. She wondered if Kishan knew Matt or Sabrie, but she snapped to attention as Kishan cocked his left to his head and stared into her eyes, as if searching for something. Then she felt a cool then warm sensation in her mind as Kishan's eyes locked on her eyes again.... Then she felt it: A twisting and ripping feeling in her head. She didn't know what happened but she was mad now.


Kishan
Kishan stared into Kyra's natural blue eyes as he started to work his magic. He probed her mind for hidden feelings, thought and instincts that he could use against her. He went through her head again and... Bingo! He knew Kyra was angry and mad at the white coats, and the world but he didn't know she was that angry. He jumped at the hidden emotion and twisted it into anger at the other mutant, not the white coats. He ripped her anger apart and multiplied the peices, encouraging it to grow and build like wild fire. It didn't take long and then he broke eye contact and saw the outcome.


Kyra
Kyra growled, as Kishan started speaking quickly, not wanting to get clawed to death. "The mutants you were with... Matt, Dusk, Amp and Nudge, every mutant that you were with are all liars. They're the bad people, and they're trying to destroy our... friends." She shook her head then her nails became claws as she felt the ripping sensation in her head again. Than she remembered all the mutants she had been in contact with in the last 42 hours. Their faces went through her mind and she knew they were responsible for her... amnesia. In return she would destroy them. Crush them to peices and throw the peices into the ocean and watch as the sharks devoured every particle of them. Angry, she bared her teeth and shifted into her tiger form snarling and roaring at nothing in sight. She was coming up with ideas on how to slowly, painfully make every one of the those liars pay for erasing her memory and trying to hurt her friends.


Kishan
Kishan hid a smile as Kyra fell for the mixed up memories and feelings. She had run right into his hands and it was easier then before. He knew this was too fast for her, so he took it slow and started re-shape her memories and emotions, forming them into what he was asked to do. He made memories of the white coats friendly and relaxing, while making memories of spending time with her friends horrible and terrifying. He just switched the feeling of the situations do as he pleased. He stared into her icey blue tiger eyes and kept switching her memories and feelings around, and bringing out the destructive beast that she kept hidden all the time, to the surface.

The Calico Cat
The Calico cat turned and hid behind one of the bushes. His eyes were wide and his fur was still standing on edge as he waited for the humans to follow. He saw Matt get hurt and growled. His ears flexed backwards as he sat down, waiting for Sabrie to notice the wounded human. He was their guide not their healer and so he would wait until they realized whats happened. He also needed to tell Sabrie that they needed a vehicles to take them to their destination. You need to hurry, time is running out. He looked up at the skies and nodded. Remember they need to choose.... which path... they take. The voice in his head went on, pausing between words then faded. He looked at Sabrie and meowed.


Kishan
Kishan sighed as he watched Kyra fall over. He did that sometimes, use his power for too long on another mind and they would fall unconscious as they started to tolerate their messed up mind. He was also hungry from the loss of energy, which was lost in the process of.... twisting Kyra's memory around. He walked into the kitchen, peered inside his frigerator and snorted. "Humans and their tastless food."
Kishan stalked outside, his movements becoming more fluid and... predatory like. His eyes brightened as he shifted, into a white tiger bigger then Kyra. His sneezed and took off into the forest following an unseen trail to his usual hunting grounds where deer were plentiful for the entire spring going to summer time. During winter he usually had to go higher into the mountians to find food, which was his favorite time of the year. He stopped and waited when he didn't spot any deer in the feild.

Maya

Dark green eyes widened when the boy pushed her away. How could he even move with that injury? And he was melting the floor? That was just plain freaky...was she dreaming? A quick pinch to her arm confirmed she wasn't, not that it was important now. Her concern for the boy, and the girl he was pulling away, overrode any common sense she had right now, and she grabbed the boys' other hand, hoping to at least make him pause, so he would listen to her.
"Come on now, calm down...I'm not gonna hurt you. You need to get that wound seen to....Come on, leanbh (kid), you're just being silly now.", Maya was struggling to not be reduced to pleading with Matt. She had to prove she knew how to handle this.

Nudge

Nudge felt more people pull at him, taking him away from whoever he was hanging onto, and he struggled. He knew that whoever it had been before wouldn't have hurt him. If they were going to, they would have by then, right? But these new people, he didn't know them, and they were trying to get him back to bed. He didn't want that though, he needed to find out what was going on. Matt's mind was getting more violent, and it didn't feel like Matt at all by this point.
He had to focus on that, on trying to get away...
He felt a sharp pain in his arm, ad within minutes he was feeling sleepy. It was just like the Lab, they were putting him to sleep, so they could do more tests! Nudge didn't even try to fight it though, it was always worse if he did, it hurt more...
He was still scared though, what would they do to him?

He didn't know that the doctors had put him under mainly for his own safety. If he had kept making such a fuss, he would only hurt himself more. The stitches across his arm had already reopened, due to him trying to get away from them. So he had to be asleep so they could replace them. He would be too stressed out otherwise. This was a safer option, for all concerned.

Maya

"Help us... I'll explain later, just please, help us hide, before they come.... Before they take us back......"

Maya's gaze alternated between Matt, Ash, and the pile of sand on the floor. That sand...was Ash's arm? This was both incredible (from a medical point of view), and just plain creepy. But she had to help these kids, had to help them hide as Ash said (her name, to Maya, was now very ironic ansd if she wasn't so scared, she would have been laughing at this irony). She turned to Daren, who had followed them from the entrance, her eyes pleading for help here. That just proved how frazzled she was, asking for help. Normally she would try to deal with things on her own.

"Alright...Alright. I'll help. I was going to anyway. I knew something wasn't right from the start.", she said, though her voice shook. Something hadn't been right? Feck, that was an understatement...the fact that they were so thin. Their fear of the hospital and the doctors. The extent of their injuries...all pointed to something really, very bad. Maya just wasn't sure what.

"Daren. My car. Silver BMW-X5. Round the back of the building. Get Faith and 'Nudge', if you can move him, and get them sorted. I'll get these two, and that other boy. Can we use your car too? I know where we can go. It's pretty remote though, but they shouldn't find us. I'll grab some equipment on the way too. can you do the same?", she asked, though she regretted what she had to do next. She had a needle in her pocket, she had taken it off of one of the doctors who was going to use it on Nudge. And if she were going to get these kids out of here, then she would have to stop Matt from hurting any of them. Or her. She didn't want to have to do this, but if it got them all safe...

Maya

She had decided. Matt had to calm down, one way or another. Her hand gripped the needle in her pocket, she would have to use it. As much as she hated the idea. He was close enough, she could inject him without him registering it until he was out. She didn't have time to think though, only to act. Maya swung her hand out, holding the syringe, and it connected, though she had a feeling it wouldn't have the full effect on Matt when he was like this. Still, even if it had some effect, it would be better than nothing...

Nudge

Not...safe...danger. Can feel bad. Like Black-men. Bad. Pain. Take Nudge back. Not want back..., Nudge sent to Faith, trying to get her to understand. Something was happening, he knew it. That's why he had been trying to move in the first place, to get to where it was. Or away from it. He hadn't been thinking that far ahead. All he had been concerned with was trying to move. Something whaich hadn't been all that successful, it had to be said.

The coloured signs made the childrens' ward exceedingly easy to find, and Jarek grinned. Still unseen, he slipped through the double doors after a nurse swept through, the thick smell of antiseptic, hospital food and illness filling his nose. So... two brothers, one older than the other. It didn't take him too long to track both boys down. Still invisible, he crept into their room and watched the two children. There was no pull of his heartstrings or twinge of sympathy as he searched the supply cupboards - luckily left open in the ruckus - at the end of the room. Although Jarek wasn't a user and never had been, he had a broad knowledge of drugs. The man smiled a thin-lipped smile to find a drawer full of shots of various sedatives. Enough to knock an adult man out for definite! That'd work well for these two boys.

Two syringes seemed to disappear as he picked them up. Tapping the bubbles out carefully, he headed over to inject the older boy in the neck. His hands were cool and a little calloused as he found the correct place to inject. He prepared the needle and went to quickly plunge it into the boy's neck, hopefully before he woke up.

-Sergei-

In a less crowded ward of the hospital, a slim man sat up on a bed, attended to by a nurse who washed and cleaned his inner arm. He peered, curious, as she removed thick, stinking gloop from the deep wound, tutting as she did so. The man's fingers twitched sporadically as she accidentally prodded an exposed tendon a few times whilst a soothing lotion was rubbed in. He was glad she'd asked no questions. The drug he took that did this to his arm hadn't been made illegal yet, but he was pretty sure the government wouldn't like to hear of it. He watched the white bandages wrap around his poor, destroyed inner elbow and sighed.

"Thank you very much, nurse. Sorry you had to look after my nasty, nearly-rotten arm, hah," he said with a charismatic smile.

The nurse raised her eyebrows and made a zipping motion over her lips. She'd been bribed significantly by the strange little man, and although everything told her that she should tell, that man was too sweet to her (not to mention all that money he had given her. That helped). She helped him down from the bed and waved him off. With a sweet smile over his shoulder, Sergei headed towards the exit. His rotting arm hurt terribly, sweat beading on his forehead from the pain. He put the hand in his pocket carefully as he strode down the sterile corridors, boots click-click-clicking.

Slipping through a door, he saw a... what could only be described by Sergei as a situation going on. An old fellow had fired a gun at a girl with a missing arm, people all around, people grabbing other people, people arguing... Curious, he watched them, wondering what was happening. He head gunfire from down a corridor. This was strange, very strange. Something governmental? Sergei wasn't fond of the government after they'd tried to grab him and execute him a few times in the past. Folding his arms, he stood and watched the strange little situation unfold.

Sergei was certainly curious now. Maybe be could free one of these children and strike a deal with it? Above all else, Sergei was a deal maker. Although certainly capable of doing things for himself, he preferred to see others work for him. He wasn't lazy, per say; rather entitled, privileged, arrogant, but not lazy. It was harder for him to do certain things. To eat, he had to lure people. Posing as a prostitue or an injured person sometimes worked. It was much easier for a child to frantically grab the hand of an adult and beg them to come help this poor hurt man. Or for them to carry their 'new baby brother' off to their 'cousin' who would later rip it limb from limb with animalistic teeth or throw it into a wall and slam it into floors the same way a cat would play with food.

So he sat down in one of the plastic orange chairs and had a think. There was the girl... a boy was carrying her and she seemed unable to move and in pain. He could probably help her get out. Things were always a bit easier when you had a smooth-talking, shapeshifting creature with immense jaw strength on your side. And in return, she'd find him a nice meal or he'd shred her. As stealthily as he could in his human form, he followed the pair, hunger gnawing his stomach.

-Jarek-

Jarek quickly nodded and turned invisible again, laying the two boys down and massaging his strained arms. With a wince, he turned into his reptilian form and picked both boys up, carrying them out. As he was told, he put them both in the van, a visible human now; it was hard to do car doors with long claws, after all. He was starting to ache and whined bestially, unsure of what to do now. He supposed he'd better find his teammate and help him out at some point. The man grumbled and rolled his eyes.

*Amp/Blast*

Neither of them knew officially what was going on, but were glad that they weren’t noticed. They were basically hiding between the bench and Ash’s cage, almost out of site of prying eyes. They weren’t too sure what was going to happen next and they flinched when the van started and they drove off. It was strange listening to the sounds outside because it all sounded blurred and mushed, there were no definite sounds. Amp closed his eyes and let Blast be in front, he didn’t want to try and be in control anymore. He curled up in the back of their mind and stayed there, just listening, and from where he was he could listen in on the minds around him.

He was still slightly perplexed about this because all he could ever hear before was the voices, now mind, and that was much more interesting. He felt around, two he instantly flinched away from, their minds were harsh, mean, and had a deep cruel sound to them. He felt around Matt’s and pulled away from his, it was also a bit violent but slightly different. He stopped on Ash, she was as scared as he was, he felt safe around her mind. Scared….be ok? Where we going….? He pushed the thoughts towards her, not knowing if she could hear them or not, though he wished she could.

Blast kept in front, watching out for what was going to happen to them next, he didn’t particularly like the idea of going back to the place that they had just gotten away from. Especially since they had seen some of what was out there, everything was so colorful and soft. Soft wasn’t something one normally got in the Lab, so out here is was like gold. He glanced around the van, there wasn’t too much interesting about it, besides the cage Ash was in and the strangely cold seat Matt was in. He glanced at the man he had dubbed as ‘Evil Eyes’ and listened to the conversation with the other. He hadn’t figured out a name for him yet but just watched and listened, he would figure one out soon enough.

*Amp/Blast*

When the van stopped, they didn’t know where they were. They mainly expected to be back at the Lab, but this place looked a little different than the Lab had. Granted they had never seen the outside, but it couldn’t be the same because just by looking at it, it wouldn’t have the same layout as the Lab. They were hauled out of the van and dragged inside, the doors slamming shut behind them. Amp was panicking, he didn’t know where they were going, or who the person was, or what was going to happen to them. He saw Ash and Matt being dragged off in a different direction with Evil Eyes and knew that couldn’t be good. Blast on the other hand was more curious than frightened at the moment. He could tell that this place was not the Lab, but what was it then?

Blast didn’t get to figure out where exactly they were when they were tossed into a room. It was bare and all it had was the white walls and bright lights in the ceiling. The door shut with a clang and the dead bolt slid into place with a thud. Now there was absolutely nothing. Amp immediately calmed down as they were finally alone and it was clear that they weren’t going to be hurt at the present moment. Blast was slightly bummed that he didn’t get to figure out what the building was, but was still curious.

Nudge

Nudge bit his lip when Faith appeared next to him, she had leaned on his bad arm accidently. But he couldn't move away, he was just glad she was alright. Her eyes were all wet though, why? She was crying? Why was she doing that? People cried when they were sad. Was Faith sad?

he didn't have time to ask her though, as Dusk tried to move in front of them, trying to protect them from those people. Nudge probably wouldn't be much good in a fight, injured or not...but he wasn't totally useless.
Before the Lab blew up, he had helped Emvee with a shield. And Nudge had quickly figured out how to make one himself. Not many would expect this, but Nudge was a fast learner, given the chance.

It wouldn't last long though, he knew that. But if it helped even for a little while? that would be enough for him.
Constructing the shield itself was difficult, as he had never done it before, but when he was done, a faint pale blue shimmer hung in the air around the trio. It probably wouldn't stop a bullet, but it would hopefully prevent physical attacks. Who knew? Certainly not Nudge. As long as it helped though, he wouldn't mind...no matter how much energy it took up...He was starting to understand why Emvee had needed him to boost the shield from the Lab...


Maya

Maya Could see what was happening from her hiding place, and knew something was wrong imediately. As if the way these 'people' talked wasn't enough to point that out. Trouble was, there was no way she'd be able to take out both of them herself, and her knife would do next to nothing. She only kept it as a comfort anyway, it wasn't like she knew how to use it. This wasn't good.
A quick glance around revealed a good-sized branch on the ground, and she picked it up. Light enough for her to hold, but thick and heavy enough to cause a bit of damage. And if these people were as bird-like as they looked, then it would follow, medically, that their bones would be thinner, possibly hollow. That included their skulls. They would be thinner as well, more brittle. That gave Maya an idea. One that she was confident with as she remembered the time that she had spent on her high school's hockey team, back home in Dublin. Girl's hockey was brutal, but Maya had been moreso than most, with one of the hardest hits that the coaches had ever seen.
She saw herself back in school, lining up for a shot, knowing the defence was wide open. A confident smirk appeared on her face as she lifted the branch above her head and moved foward, catching the female 'thing' off guard as Maya swung. And the bird-thing ended up with a caved-in skull. As Maya had expected, their skulls were thinner than a human's.
Unfortunately, that brought Maya to the attention of the male, and he (it?) seemed to ignore Daren for a few seconds to try to get the person who had hurt it's comrade...i.e. Maya.
"Oh, feckin' 'ell...", she muttered as the bird-thing grabbed the branch and pulled it outof her hands. The situation had just went from bad to worse.

-Blast-

He was getting frustrated; he didn’t like being in the back when things were going t get bad. And he could tell things were going to get bad because one, the white coat was dragging them off, two, the first always leads to something bad, enough said. He wanted to get in front, protect Amp, that was is job, why he was here, make sure Amp didn’t get too hurt, if he did…there was no telling what a boy with no life left in him would do. But once Blast saw Ash, and Matt in the room, he knew he couldn’t come out, his methods would kill them both along with whoever the torturer was. He would have screamed, shouted, made the man’s ears bleed and make him drop dead with a sound blade, but he didn’t want the others getting hurt either.

He felt pain on the back of his head, Amp was feeling the brunt of it but Blast had a faint feeling of whatever was being done to him. He was going to focus on that when he heard a whistle. Someone knew how to send messages through it, or at least he could hear their intentions behind it. He let his mental eye look around and trained his ear on Ash; she had asked him something, something about the outside, if there was anything there. There hadn’t been time to listen that far, only to keep themselves mostly whole, their arm was still throbbing painfully from the beating they had gotten. He sent a mental whistle back to her, slightly melancholy in sound, cut short at a slight high note. No time to listen, pain.

-Amp-

You would think he would be used to things like this by now. Being beaten on, being dragged out of a room, to be thrown in another and then more pain. It took him a few seconds to notice that Ash and matt were in the room. Why was he there then? If they were already being punished, what did he do this time; he was already punished by the guards, now there was something else? He was confused and scared and the pain in his arm intensified when he felt a hand grab his throat and slam him into the wall.

He head rung, and his throat burned, his hands instinctually went up to the one at his throat and tried clawing at the fingers cutting off his air. ”What is your name, boy?” He paused slightly, the voice was nice, contrary to the actions, and sounded sincere. He gasped for breath, pulling in some air through his constricted wind pipe. ”Amp….”

-Amp-

He felt the man’s hand release its hold on him slightly, allowing him to breathe more easily. He wondered if things would get better for him if he just cooperated with the man, so he wouldn’t get hurt anymore. He felt his head being turned and his eyes caught onto Ash’s. Then the man’s offer to tell him what happened and the promise of not being hurt further. He wanted to cooperate, he didn’t want to get hurt anymore, he was tired of it, there was always pain wherever he was. But Ash’s next words didn’t make sense, but at the same time they did. The man didn’t want to help them, he would hurt them either way. This had also happened to him before, people saying they wouldn’t hurt him, but did anyway. He was confused. ”Said no hurt….just say what happened…”

-Blast-

He could tell that Ash wasn’t happy with his response, he wouldn’t either, and he should have been listening, to find a way out. But he had to focus on what was happening around them, not what was going on outside the walls that confined them into this building. When he did turn his attention to the task at hand, he barely stopped Amp from blurting out what had happened, making their eyes swirl between light and dark blue. ”Quiet…idiot…” He whispered out loud to Amp, then quickly realized his error, he just hoped the Evil Eyed man wouldn’t look too far into it. Many here seemed insane. He spoke a little louder this time. ”An explosion…fire…had to get out…” One of their eyes was now light blue while the other was dark blue, Blast didn’t know this of course, he just hoped that his answer would satisfy evil Eyes.

Daren
He twitched slightly as he heard Maya start crying. She couldn't stand hearing those kids;it had been difficult enough to see the aftermath, but to hear it as such events unfolded was just too much. But if she keeps crying, we'll get caught! Have to get her to stop, we both need to go in there if we're going to do anything but be captured and charged for breaking and entering, possibly even attempted theft, He thought grimly, turning to Maya, and paled ever so slightly. Another worker here was headed down the hallway. Without any time to think, he pulled Maya close to him and kissed her, turning so that his back was all the worker would see. The moment he was gone( laughing and muttering to himself that the younger ones always found the weirdest places for "that kind of thing"), he let go, bright red and looked away. "I am sorry, Miss Maya....I.....there was no time for anything else I had no time to think......" He trailed off, waiting for thae well-deserved slap to come....

Matt
Matt snarled, thrashing with what little room he had in the restraints and cussing in every tongue he knew. But it was hopeless; he couldn't get free.He was too cold to use fire, and the area around him was too bright for shadows to be any help. The brightness burned even his back, covering him in blisters that were slowly getting worse with his struggling. I have to get Ash and the others out.... Two dead already, we can't lose anymore. None of us want to go back. They'll kill us all once we were in their hands again. They'd force us all into a Games arena with no way out..... He stopped, that dark thought paralyzing him. He couldn't kill them, not after they had become his friends, allies...... The way he was thinking, he would be the first to die.....

He could feel the heat of two new people; the look on Ash's face said she felt it too. But neither of them could tell if the new bodies were friend, or foe.....He just watched as Amp was slowly tortured, being offered promises of safety if he answered.

-Amp-

He stiffened when he felt the edge of a knife raised to his side, letting out a small whimper. It would have been louder if he didn’t feel Blast helping out, making his jaw clench. It was strange with both of them in control at once, Amp wanted to curl up, let Evil Eyes do what he wanted then just try and block it all out. He could feel that Blast wanted to fight back, struggle out of the tight grip that was around their throat. Amp had learned long ago that things just got worse if that happened.

He was getting confused with the answers and questions going back and forth. Evil Eyes said he knew that wasn’t all that had happened, that he wanted to know what had happened before the explosion. Amp opened his mouth to speak, but his intended answer didn’t come out, Blast took just enough control to speak instead of him.

-Blast-

He didn’t like what was going on, he wanted to scream, echo his voice around the room until it shattered. But he couldn’t, Matt and Ash were there, they would be shredded to bits if he screamed. But he could try and stall Evil Eyes, and he got his chance to not fight Amp for control and spoke instead of letting him. ”Just fire….don’t know….” He hoped that the man would be convinced but it didn’t seem so as he felt the knife cut into his side, Evil Eyes demanding an answer for the end to the pain.

-Amp-

He felt the sharp edge of the knife cut into the skin on his side and he started to struggle, instinct kicking in to keep himself alive if he could. But moving made it worse, he moved and the blade went deeper into his skin, causing blood to flow down his side. He whimpered, his voice threatening a scream, but he could tell Blast was keeping it from coming out, he wasn’t entirely sure why because he just wanted it to stop. Evil Eyes asked again, saying that the pain would stop if he just answered, the offer was tempting, and he wanted to take it, but blood was dripping to the floor, and he was feeling light headed again.

-Blast-

If he knew any meaningful cusses he would have used them about now. He could feel their head getting the tell tale sign of vision going fuzzy and sounds getting blurring together. There were the slices in their side form the knife, and blood was slowly pooling on the floor. But he wouldn’t let Evil Eyes know, but what was there to know? There was the explosion and it allowed them to escape. Amp and he were allowed out the small cell once in awhile when they left the door unlocked, it wasn’t like it was bad for them t just wonder down the halls sometimes, not that they wanted to. But there wasn’t anything more to say, he was in a cell, walked out when it was time to get food, helped Dusk to the area were the animal mutants were then everything went into chaos.

There was some noise off to the side and he could hear two more people, a female and a male. He could see the white on them, and that was about it, he didn’t want anything worse to happen, something bad always happened with people in white. He was dropped roughly on the floor and he could feel Amp fall into unconsciousness. Once again he was left at the front, but he couldn’t move, he felt so weak, he wanted to sleep. But he forced his eyes open, he saw the white coats come into the room, and trembled, he saw Matt still stuck to the wall, and Ash, still strapped down and blood dripping from her hand. He wondered briefly why there was pool of blood from him, stretching towards the table, his mind cleared for a second as he realized it must have been him, then his head went fuzzy again.

-Blast-

There was so much going on, and with his head being so foggy from the blood loss and his vision blurred and spotted from the beating, he couldn’t quite keep track of everything that was going on around him. There were flashes of color, wave after wave of undecipherable sounds going through his ears, and the faint feeling of himself being taken somewhere. Not like this hadn’t happened before, but the circumstances now were a bit different than they had been in the past. Before, he at least had an idea of what was to be expected, now he had no idea, there were tons of new things he had just gone through, a bunch of new people he had just seen and overall the entire situation didn’t make sense to his uneducated mind.

He felt himself being moved down hallways, more flashes of color, and sounds of voices weaving their way to tired ears and then there was that smell again. Something he had only, what he thought to be a brief, smell of something that he could only describe as fresh. There were the new sounds he had heard after the Lab, exploded and the color was green. He was outside again, finally, but there was meal clanking, and he was put inside something. There was something like that before, it had moved very fast, and took him to a different kind of Lab that wasn’t a Lab. He was just slumped against the side, waiting for his vision to stop being just spots and for the sounds to clear into something he could actually make out.

-Amp-

Everything was so confusing, he didn’t know what he was in, but it was all metal like some of the rooms he had been kept in before, and it was loud. There was a great rumbling and growling sound coming from the front where the two adults were, was there a creature up there? Waiting to spring at them if they did something wrong? He didn’t want to risk that chance and stayed curled up in his corner, he was so tired on top of that. Maybe now would be a good time to sleep, but what of Matt and Ash? He didn’t want to wake up and find them being hurt or gone, they were the closest he had to friends and wasn’t going to lose them now. Every time his eyes started to droop, he forced them open to make sure none of this flashed away like a dream.

-Blast-

He couldn’t quite figure out the two adults, first they were in a Lab like place, but then they came and took them away from another. Were they friends? Trying to save them from the Lab? Or just trying to take them to their own Lab away from another? The thought made him shiver in the back of the mind that they shared, was there more than one Lab? That would mean even more than just the ones he had seen had been taken, was the whole world like that? No, that couldn’t be right, he had seen a world outside the building he had lived in his whole life, so the world wasn’t just a large Lab. But then where were they going now? He would have to fight the coming urge to sleep in order to make sure they were going to be okay.
