St. Mercer Hospital
It didn't take Nate long to realise he was very much naked in the metaphoric sense and not so far off in the literal one. Glancing back towards the directio nhe came from, he backpedalled to the bed he'd had and let his gaze hastily search for anything that might qualify as footwear until he found a pair of slippers that were inexplicably tucked under a chair close by. His slippers, with the Snorlax Pokemon print on them. An in-joke gift from Viv and Quent after they caught him asleep on his desk on a few long-nighters and hadn't been able to wake him with anything short of poking him in the ribs. Who'd placed them there, he could only make the educated guess that they had been around to drop them off.. which meant they knew he had been asleep for whatever fucking length it had been, in a hospital bed. It had implications he didn't want to confront right now, so instead he slipped them on and looked for anything else that might've been his, only to find that it was just the slippers. Pausing, Nate took a glance outside the borders of his own unit. Around him in adjacent beds were familiar faces - they were all awakened, people who had abstractions, the powers that had kept them alive so far where others had been wiped out in the chaos-
Inexplicably, he found himself losing balance, disoriented by the experience. Instead of moving, or trying to form words, he'd just stood there - trying to make sense of this in his head and find some mental equilibrium. Voices that had begun to speak up, others shouting around him droned away, colour bleeding from his vision as silhouettes solidified from a blur to hard, oily black forms, only to dissipate once more. More droning, like a siren on a low pitch - more screams, more shouting. Nate's fingers tightened into a ball, not a fist - willing himself control of his situation. He didn't have time to screw around trying to find his stuff that might not have even been here - the God Kid had warned them. It had killed some of their kind - because what were awakened if not abnormal - already.
Once more, colour filled the world, vague shadows dissipating once and for all to be replaced with solid objects and people talking and moving, shouting and screaming. It didn't sound good - Nate found himself searching for the nearest thing that might serve as a weapon and decided that an empty IV stand by a bed would do the job, it was at least light enough to haul around without dragging constantly on the floor. As he approached, abandoning his bed once more, he arrived in time to see more of his fellow awakened and others, less familiar, scattered across the hall, some engaging in an impromptu wrestling match with nurse bearing the hallmarks of another Scott Reese-esque murder spree - and then to witness her drive a pair of scissors into her own throat, before he even had the opportunity to get involved and have his ass beaten down in the fray.
