Judah continued to record and then Zach smashed the television into the pavement. Limbo made a comment and disappeared somewhere. Judah tried to record her. At the same time, he felt Zach's pain and a slight unease. Then he claimed the woman would not die. Zach's tone gave the impression he was unsure of the statement. Judah turned his camera off and scratched his head in frustration, "Zach..that woman may be dead now. I realize it was painful, but we have no more leads."
He took a long look at the situation. Seeing SpFarce kneeling in shock, he walked over. Then tried to comfort them by putting his hand on their shoulder, quietly stating, "She's a monster and I'm sorry. We have to go now though. There will be time to reflect later. And I promise all of you,"
He said as he looked back to Zach, "We will bring these degenerates to justice."
Then he smiled, "Our justice."
The emotional overload that they experienced had taken a toll on Lethal Force's mental stability. Judah was especially effected, being able to feel the other's as well as his own emotions. The only way he was able to compose himself was because of his powers. The "justice" he was referring to now was not a virtue to uphold, but a desire to get even. He wanted to get The Community back ten-fold..he just didn't have the manpower, resources or training to even attempt that at the moment.
Judah stood up and waved the group toward himself, "Let's head back to the apartment and help the twins get their stuff out of there. That place has been compromised. We have to bring them someplace else."
Then he whispered when they got closer, "We need to take different vehicles and make sure we lose Limbo. If she finds out where we live too.."
he trailed off, "We can't let that happen."
Then Judah began heading back toward the twin's apartment. He helped anyone walk if required and quietly whispered to the Twin's when they saw the vandalism done to the place, "You two can crash at my place until we figure this thing out. Don't worry it'll work out."
He smiled at them as genuine as he could considering the circumstances.
Gabriel/Swarm - Minutemen "Headquarters"
sat down in the chair provided and watched as the woman left. He waited patiently as Kyoshi had a slight outburst. Then Rend tried to calm the situation down and redirect attention to their guest
, smiled after having their attention and stood up, "Thank you. My name is Gabriel. I represent a group of business associates. We have recently been having problems with a criminal gang calling themselves The Rockers."
He waited for them give the affirmative that The Minutemen knew of the group. He continued, "We would like you to bring their leaders to justice. Specifically, the parahumans named Ceramix, and Shatterpoint."
He paused for a moment to let all the information sink in. Gabriel
had what many would call a silver tongue. Gabriel
spoke as if everyone around him was the focus of all his attention. He looked directly into their eyes, gave the appropriate body language and gestured at all the right moments. His smile was completely genuine. Gabriel
would make an excellent
He continued, "My benefactors and I realize you are a very busy and sought after group." Gabriel
was very proficient in the art of flattery among his other skills, "I hope we can..persuade you to take up this job with all your attention and resources. It would mean everything to us."
He set his suitcase on a table, unlocked it with a key, and opened it up. Inside was filled with cold hard cash. The Minutemen would find when it was fully counted, it would equal 50,000 dollars. Gabriel
smiled and said, "There's more where that comes from when the job is done."
