Nocturne Part 4
Cleo had kept a low profile since the appearance of the guy holding Uná , she didn’t know what to do while the scene had started to unfold before her, it eventually clicked to her that right now the pale individual was not aware of her presence and this presented a golden opportunity.
A crazy idea had popped in her head. Sure it was probably stupid, crazy even, but she had been fighting a monster drunk tonight so what would be different this time round? More of her friends were here this time.
Concentrating, Cleo closed her eyes for a moment, soon she would become invisible, her powers kicking in, she stood up from behind the car, and quietly as possible was making her way round through the other entrance while the others where keeping the man preoccupied with talking, it seemed the only thing to do until she could do her plan, hopefully not harming Uná or Heidi in the process. The plan was to flank and use the element of surprise, but that was a far as she got in her mind so she’ll make it up once inside.
It took a while to figure a way around the place once in, but soon enough the mutant had found herself behind the figure holding Uná just standing within the doorway. But now that Cleo was there she was freaking out in her mind what to do next as she observed what was going on still, she had to get her friends away from him, but then there was another crazy idea. * Yeah that’s it, you can do, just knock them out of his grasp and out the door, how hard can that be?* she was mentally preparing herself.
Pacing back and forth, Cleo battled in her own head how she would do this and simply ended up with a ‘Fuck it’, facing her target, Cleo focused, putting her hands together for a moment against her forehead. *You can do this.* changing her stance to get ready to make the flanking run… She went for it. Full speed, fast as she could before he could realize what was happening, as she got to Uná , Cleo made the grab, using her own momentum and weight to shove into him and take Uná , knocking her out of his arms, it must have looked and felt strange for the person you are holding to suddenly fly out your arms and hit the ground outside the door your standing in.
A few seconds later, it became apparent what just occurred, mainly because in her effort to take Uná , Cleo collided with Heidi in the process which had knocked them out of the doorway, but not by much, Cleo had fallen on Uná by accident; but ultimately, Cleo was visible again and the blonde had realized it too, she can only apologize later to the girls for her actions, if she hurt them but for now, she turned facing Lex. “Think I will keep hold of Red for you darling” She smiled placing herself between him and Uná , turning her head to the others. “Now!!” she yelled urgently.
Nik gave a devilish grin as his hand slipped out of his pocket, revealing a glowing chunk of wood in his grip. With an aim and windup he had trained since he was eight, Demo launched the chunk of wood directly towards Lex’s exposed chest before rushing forward, his right fist cocked back and ready to plant one right in the bastard’s kisser… with a bit of a charge prepared for the son of a bitch.
Lex grabs Nik’s wrist as he staggered a bit under the impact of the small explosion that came off of the splinter. “You’re about to pay dearly for that one pip squeak.” Lex then grabbed the front of Nik’s shirt and tossed him directly into Nathan.
Nathan who was dressed in one of the suits and weilding a pair of knives made out of blood. Quickly he banished the blades as he caught Nik. Well sort of caught Nik. More like broke his fall...with his body. “Damnit Demo!!! Let’s kick this guys teeth in!! We should be working together not trying to do this on our own.” Nathan pulled Nik to his feet offering his left hand noting that his right was glowing.
Uná fell into Heidi and Cleo as a mass of tangled limbs. “Ouch!! That hurt!!! Ugh!! Off!! Now!!! Before I stuff you in a barrel you Kook!!!” Her temper was showing as well as falling into old habits of using surf lingo.
Heidi groaned, at the bottom of the pile. She couldn’t see on account of Uná and Cleo, so had literally no idea what was happening. There were many possibilities. Was everyone okay?Was anyone hurt? Heidi tried to struggle free of the pile which wasn’t easy when her body was already tired. ”What’s going on?” she asked aloud. ”Are you two alright?”
Jasper hadn't known what she would be getting into when she stole a car and rushed to Avalon. But she had known it would be exciting, different, and perhaps a chance to show off. She hadn't planned to suddenly become a super hero, and likely wouldn't stay as such. Jasper wasn't a good person by nature, but by effort she managed to be a decent human being.
Well… not exactly human, but still.
Nik and Nathan were closer than her to begin with, but it was Cleo that randomly appeared, knocking Uná out of his grasp and tackling another girl she couldn't immediately name. Shortly after Nik went after the albino, only to be thrown back into Nathan, leaving Jasper as the only one of them actually standings.
Rolling her shoulders, Jasper lilted every so slightly to the left, tilting her head as if listening to something. She blinked, and through the material of the suit a faint neon green glow could be seen along her arms to her fingers. Fingers that crackled still with the overcharge. Finally she stepped forward, unhurried, patient, measured steps. By the time she reached Nik and Nathan, she could speak without Lex hearing her.
“Cover your ears boys.”
Seconds later every network connected car in the area had its headlights on, and radios blaring static. Jasper stood barely three feet from Nik and Nathan, but her attention was on Lex. Her mouth moved, but the sound came from the radios, the cameras she could reach.
“So sorry for the interruption everyone, but it's important. This guy right here, the one with the gun obviously, not the tumble of girls beside him. He kidnapped a girl from a club tonight. No clue why, but she's clearly not old enough for him. Don't talk to strangers kids, especially creepy albino dudes with guns.”
The radios all simultaneously stopped, headlights fading out. The furthest away stopped first, until the only lights were the street lamps and the glow from Jasper's skin. To Lex, she flashed a grin.
“I hope you like being famous.”
Nik placed fingers in his ears for a moment as Jasper did her thing. He was a little disoriented from charging forward one second and being tossed aside like a newspaper the next. As the broadcast played, Nik stared in bewilderment. This… this was a new power. And it was intense. Once it was over, Nik tried to take Nathan’s hand again to get back to his feet. His right hand was still charged up and ready to go. He just needed a good shot.
