"I do not know what it is that you are talking about. Other reality? False worlds? Sounds like you belong in the loony bin,"
came Wanda's response to Max, but no one else seemed to have heard her speaking that to him.
She glanced over at Annie when she went to follow the red ribbon of sorts, and she couldn't help but chuckle, who in their right mind would make that sort of thing if they only wanted to converse with one person? It made no sense to her, but that didn't matter all too much, as she decided to go along with what Annie was doing and followed along the ribbon. "It certainly is an interesting way to get someone's attention, though you can't help but wonder if they were only trying to get one person's attention."
There were two figures at the party who blended in with the crowd rather easily, but unlike those around them, they were uninvited guests who had snuck inside of the palace. The Human Resistance had their resources, so it wasn't too difficult for them to slip on through. Now, that they were there, who was going to be their target? "So, we can't target the king, that would be suicide straight off the bat, and both of the princes could easily kill us in seconds too..." Alexander Jakobsen
said, his voice barely above a whisper as he spoke to the woman who was with him. Jade Cornish
shook her head slightly at him. She had her arm hooked around his as she surveyed the scene at the party, knowing what had to be done. They had already thoroughly discussed this. Unfortunately, the ideal target was nowhere to be seen. "She isn't here,"
she whispered quietly, as she picked up a glass of champagne from one of the waiters and smiled at him, before taking a sip. "Well then sounds like we'll have to improvise a bit then..."
he responded, his eyes scanning around the room, trying to pick out a new target. His gaze instantly went to two people, Princess Wanda and Queen Miranda. "So best targets look to be Princess Wanda or the Queen... At least at the first glance... Wanda is surrounded by a group of people it would seem at the moment..."
Jade turned, giving him a kiss on the cheek and lingering for a moment. "Don't use names. Telepaths could be anywhere,"
she whispered to him. It was a good thing that he was cute. However, she checked the box marked single and she intended for things to stay that way. She didn't need a man to hold her back. She then took his hand. "Let's get out of the crowd, dear?"
she asked, tugging him over towards the edges of the party. "True, very true. Let's get out of the crowd,"
he said, giving her a smile as he followed her to the edge of the party. He was still scanning the room as he walked with her towards the edge of the crowd, and he saw someone else who wasn't too far away from them. Miranda was still by the wall, where Max had essentially left her to go wander off and do who knows what in her mind. She was just leaning against the wall, watching the party.
She spotted the Queen and gave Alex a bit of a nod. They had discussed how exactly to do this before, so she imagined that he would be fine with the routine. She would distract the target and he would execute the plan from behind, following the pair of them fleeing. "I'd like to go greet our Queen - excuse me,"
Jade said, before approaching Queen Miranda and giving her a curtsey, only to intentionally trip and fall forward onto the woman. "Oh, don't worry, it's fine, are you alright?"
Miranda asked her, catching her slightly. Alex moved slightly around her, looking at Jade with a slight smile as he pulled a knife that was specifically designed for this sort of thing, as it had a plastic handle and a glass shard for the blade. He kept it hidden in his sleeve as he moved to the other side, and as Miranda had turned to see if Jade was alright, he stabbed the blade into Miranda's back, twisting it slightly to cause more damage, before yanking it back out again, and Miranda fell to the ground. "I would recommend we leave now,"
he said simply, grabbing Jade's arm and pulling her away from where Miranda was now.
However, any hope for a clean getaway that they may have had was quickly thwarted, as someone noticed what had happened and yelled out, "The Human Resistance is here!"
This caught Magneto's attention as he saw Miranda on the ground bleeding out and barely breathing. "After them!"
he yelled out, his eyes flashing with anger as several people took off after Jade and Alex now. A few others from the crowd had gone over to where Miranda was and were attempting to stop the bleeding, but the knife had cut deep into her body, and it wasn't stopping any time soon.
The instant his father had yelled about going after the Resistance members, Pietro had taken off after them in hopes of catching them, though the odds of the pair out racing him were slim. Flynn had gone over to his mother in order to try and stop the bleeding until more help could potentially arrive. Out of everyone in the room, not a single person could just transfer regenerative healing or something to another person, and it was not going to make things any better.
Howard listened to what the two were saying, nodding his head slightly at their words. "Nice to meet you, Howard Stark. As for what you are describing, it does seem to be a bit far fetched, however, there could be some truth in your words. Either you are going insane in some form, or what you are describing is the truth. And based on how you appear, I am more inclined to believe the latter. Let's see what we can find out about this situation," he said as he stood up from where he was and headed down to the lab area. "Your parents went to a restaurant not too long ago, it'll be a little while until they return Guin."
Guin however would receive a telepathic message in the meantime from Pietro. Guina, someone just tried to kill my mother...
Rogue chuckled slightly, looking at Anastasia, "Ya sure do talk a lot don't ya? Anything goes is perfectly fine with me, unless ya want to do hand to hand, cause warning, I can't stop my super strength very easily when I throw a punch, so ya could just end up being thrown across the room by accident or somethin'." “Less talking, fille.”
Gambit said instantly, before he pulled a pack of cards out of his pocket. He then proceeded to throw three cards at Ayita right off the bat, and two of them hit her with enough force to send her stumbling backwards, while the last one missed her. "What he said about it, let's get this started,"
she said to Anastasia, before she started hovering in the air, and charged right at her.
Chrysi shot a glare at Casper, her eyes shifting to red as she smirked at him. Something moved in her jacket sleeve, and suddenly she had a knife in her hand, "Killing people with knives is a bit on the messy side, but... It also is a lot more fun,"
she said simply, twirling the blade a bit. Hearing her words, Jack whirled around, and was about to charge at her when someone else came outside and shoved past him. "I've got this,"
Mary said softly to him as she moved, and right before Chrysi was able to even try and stab Casper, she had gone over and blocked her arm when she had raised the blade. "You really should learn not to do anything to anger her Casper..." "Hey there Goldilocks. What? Did you get kicked out of the room too? Thought you were the good one who always did what you were told to?"
Chrysi said, and Casper was close enough to see Chrysi's eyes flash with anger, that was directed not towards him any more, but towards Mary instead. She flipped her arm around and slashed Mary's arm, causing her to stumble backwards, and it was bleeding fairly badly. "You and I also know which one of us would win in a fight, honestly I can't help but wonder why you are even around, you are way too nice to even be around and you know it!"
Jack glanced over at his brother, before he raced over to Chrysi as well, who looked like she was going to stab Mary again. He had no clue what his brother had been going on about, but he did know that Chrysi was a certified serial killer, and Casper had just been defending him. Managing to avoid Chrysi slashing at him, and being really glad that he was wearing long sleeves, and wrapped his arms around her, knocking the knife out of her hand and restraining her. "Let go of me if you want to live,"
she grumbled, glaring at him. "Yeah, not happening."
Mary took the moment to knock the blade further away from Chrysi and she stood up off of the ground, her arm was still bleeding pretty badly and she was using her other hand in a futile attempt to stop the bleeding.
"You need to watch your mouth Novikova,"
she snapped in response, glaring at her. She didn't care much for her, but thought nothing of it really now, they had more important things to deal with. "Put my goddamn son on the phone, NOW."
Banner snapped instantly at James, virtually ignoring what he had said. Though it was obvious that Banner was definitely not
in the mood to talk about anything at all.
Tinley would be able to notice one thing, and that was that Lance was starting to try and fight back against her control. He wasn't able to break free from it, but it was becoming a bit more difficult to keep the control going. When Niah led him to the quinjet, he didn't say anything, just going along with her onboard of the ship. Since Shelly was looking around, somewhat, she wouldn't be able to see anyone coming, though that could be a good or bad thing.
However, there was one person who had broken free from Tinley's control, and that was Runa. Tinley would be able to feel Runa fighting her and eventually break free from her mind control. "You can talk to him over on the jet, since we need to see about getting out of here,"
Mystique said simply towards James, before she left the house and headed onto the quinjet. "You know, it would be interesting to have to fight the Hulk..."
Sapphire mused, keeping a bubble of cold air around her as she walked outside as well. "That might sound like a fun thing, but trust me Clarke, it definitely isn't."
Wolverine grumbled as he exited the house and went into the jet.
