Security is rather nervous and on higher alert status, probably after being reamed by the bossman.
Colin and Nara are not there
The day passes uneventfully…
Magic message – “Stay after class.”
Used connections in New York to get them somewhere protected.
They will be in Hector’s company (Xavier’s Institute)
It’s very private and well-protected. He does not envy anyone messing with it.
Maybe we may see it sometime.
I try and show him Icarus’ video, but the mage-dude does not show up on the screen.
Off to JETS…
I work on Minerva’s Trivia module
Nothing much happens, and we go home.
Uneventful day, but Ellie wants to go out and play with our powers. As usual. I’m working on the Bento system, but show up anyway.
Relay system to project Ellie’s reflection ability in front of one of us.
Go to Indian Restaurant – Haveli Indian Cuisine
The rest of the week passes…
Jan 22 – Saturday
Time for practice
We putz around for a while and Cyrillo discovers a new power – phasing! Sweet.
The professor throws a boulder at him. Dude.
Kimyee is trying to use the abilities she is not familiar with yet and comes up with the power to produce plasma. Japanese 5 elements. Void = plasma. Nifty.
I get to be the bad guy
Crystal golem is not conductive, but I need a red feat to affect it.
I gate, fling energy, and hop around like a spider monkey on crack.
Cyrillo has fun with golems, and an illusion of him.
I get bored – I think we all do – and the pain finally ends in an excruciatingly morbid lecture by Herr Professor.
Poor Icarus. He’s moping that he got encased in crystal. With anime tears. Ouch. I’m thinking Cyrillo is not going to be his favourite squishy for a while.
Kimyee goes off to visit Ben and I grab Ellie and Cyrillo to go shopping in Philly with mom. We go to a mall!
The evening passes, thankfully, without incident. It pays to take Mom with us to get Italian food.
The next day…
We go out for a snowball fight. Alessandra refuses to participate after Kimyee uses her powers. She does not think it an appropriate use of metahuman abilities. And so she remains in her hidden igloo and watches with hot chocolate.
And then Ellie sees a piece of an active ingredient uniform with two sets of footprints, one smaller than Kimyees. This does not sound good.
I try and see if I can get a read on what happened.
Girl about 12 (no older) running away from Active Ingredient. Screaming and crying. Prat. Hopefully only one of the bastards. Let’s hope its not a trap.
We head off to follow the footprints.
