"Are in no power to tell pr threaten anyone here." Continued locke."In the words of your old master, thread carefully around the bigger fishes." The old guardian had other priorities in mind, but if savant were to be a little too.. obstructive, Locke would be left with no choice but to disband his little operation, within reason, of course. "I will require your cooperation for the time being, as there is much to do , and my two arms will not be enough for it all. I hope you will be able to put away your greed for power and Listen to me, least you wish to finish the same way your laster has : cut off the chaos source, rendering moot decades of his life" This threat was not a bluff, and savant could see it in every inches of locke's eyes.
"Fearsome words, But I fear your bite just isn't what it used to be, Finitevus..." Merely spoke Locke as a retort of the now shadow of itself albino echidna. "Unless... Receiving the beating of your lifetime and loosing your connection to chaos was part of your plan all along; In which case I will allow myself to discuss the... 'dubioussness' of this plan as a whole." He wisecracked some more, poking a few ones at someone who probably deserved it and then some..
The sight of the base stopped him, however. "I suppose we are finally here. While I would not advise for going in by the main entrance... We not only have an hostage, but the advantage of what did happen a few days ago... I suppose they will be willing to speak to us, rather than risking anymore bloodshed." "But if the worst has to happen, strike... I can allow you to use the old finitevus as a meatshield."
Vector calmly looked back at charmy. "Just.... Trust me on that one. Ain't not much we could possibly do right now, but survive and tell the tale.... Hopefully, some white collars are bound to found a solution to all this, right ?"
And the crocodile smirked. "And that means US, may get a nice job out of it. A nice job that may just as well PAYS , he he.... " Time was against them, but they needed the rest, for now....
Glen was going down his not so merry way, especially because breaking a finitevus's jaw in order to get a warp ring was not a sound idea.
For a whole lot of reason, including a bunch of the local fearsome foursome members.
He fortunaly was able to outrun them long enough to dive headfirst into his newly found transportation. The thing he'd do for his vixen, he swore....
Locke was now lost in haven, having to fix every single bit of the aftermath left by numerous event happening here and there, and involving his .... "Children" for the lack of better wording .
By aurora, he did not even had a wife anymore and they kept on appearing everywhere... Good thing he was a guardian.
Red was not faring better, having to deal with her own rumbles at the time. After the crap egg the man got her into, she developped quite the anger agains him, going on her own crusade to blow up as much as his property as she possibly could in order to get her mind of the danger those she tried to care about were constantly putting themselve under.
Ooc: That should cover most of it... Aww mama ,i forgot tikal.
Tikal was there... Kinda waiting for skye to call her again out of her present.
Somewhere, within the now empty chaos chamber, locke eventually let himself . All the brooding he kept inside finally went out as he realise how much of a failure he had been, both as a guardian...
And as a father.
His son was aurora knew where, in possible danger, The island only had gained a temporary respite. Odds were against him, time was against him.
And then this ... Creature.
He was probably fighting against himself as well. The stress was slowly getting up to him....
Staying locked up in there would not help any of his trouble, but the relative peace it offered was the one thing Locke needed the most at such moment....
Luger was gone. He had long left the floating island... Looking for answers, and the man who took his daughter away.
He had already lost too much in his short, sad life.... Julie would not be amongst them.
After all the craziness this day had brought up, and the day possibly nearing its end, it seemed that vector ha little choices on what he could possibly do.
Either walking into the night, and possibly ending up lost, caught .... Or worse ;
Or just lock themselve up in the hotel and sleep the night out.
But he had a small kid with him as well.
"Charmy, ah think... i think it's best for us if we stay here for the time being... At meast tonight. I'm not feeling it .. I'm not feeling it at all."
Something bigger than some petty criminals flying around in a blimp was about. Something bad enough that he could not face it on his own, let alone charmy.
For now, better be on the lookout... The army would take care of this... Right ?
Locke comptemplated Striker's offer for a few second... Then laid finitevus down."As you wish... I am feeling so drained it is a miracle I can still walk at all. Maybe should I not push my luck just yet."
A premonition, maybe...
" I fear I might need as much luck As I'll be able take off lady fate's hands without burning mine...." He eventually muttured, thoughful.
Things were definitively not looking up, but the worse was behind them.
Whatever could be in front was pale in comparison.
