PostSubject: Home is where the heart is [Mission]   Sun Sep 25, 2016 2:52 am

"Elias, up and at 'em!"

He awoke to the usual racket, groaning from underneath his pillow when his curtains were slide open and his room flooded with light that highlighted just how messy everything was. It was exam week, or to put it better, it had been exam week and all his books were strewn over his floors, notes sticked on his walls and pens in every nook and cranny. His room really did look like the set of some conspiracy movie where the main character had newspaper clippings and scribbled notes everywhere to show their insanity. Except, of course, he was just a messy teenager.

The loud sigh from Judy was audible as she surveyed the room. Elias could almost hear her arms settling on her waist as she looked at the half drunken tea mugs and the overflowing waste basket. Even from beneath his pillow, he could also hear her mind ticking away a thousand miles per hour on how to clean this up best without annoying him for going through his stuff. There really was no point in trying to sleep, it was a hopeless venture from the moment his mother had cracked open his door with a creaky squeak of his doorknob. So with a loud, deliberate sigh that matched hers, he rolled out of bed, hair a mess and his eyes blurry.

"I'm up, shoo. I'll clean it later." He said, languidly stretching. Looking out the window past Judy, he could see that today was a nice day. Another sunny day in San José, classic Cali weather that he had grown to love. Alaska had been nice with the nippy cold that contrasted with the toasty warmth of their hearth, but there was something nice about being able to open your window without risking certain death from the cold. Maybe he'd go for a ride on his skateboard, he though whimsically for a second, the earliness of the morning getting to him. But reality came crashing back with a sinister chirp from his prepaid cellphone, the third one this week.

"I'll get that, you go and get ready for school."
His mum cut in, but Elias was faster, lunging for it across the bed. His elbow struck the bedside table in his haste but he managed to get there first. "Elias!"

'Good Morning, little brother. I can't wait to see you soon. -J'

Before he knew it, his phone slipped out of his hand, clattering against the wooden floor. His head felt fuzzy and someone was wheezing really loudly near him, it was distracting. Then he realised, it was him. He was staring at the ground next where the phone had fallen face down, hyperventilating. Self-aware now, he realised that his mother was kneeling next to him whispering something. He couldn't hear her over the gasps. But little bits trickled through. "Its ok- Breat- Eli- Lov- Shh- Brea- El- Saf-"

"Wh-what. If. What if? What. If. He. He comes." He gasped out between broken gasps, his head now tucked between his legs. Elias couldn't remember when that happened, when did he end up on the floor curled up in the fetal position. He was forgetting again, like how he couldn't remember that day. He couldn't even remember his biological mother's face. Why did this keep happening.

"Shush, it's okay. Breathe Elias. Here, let me." She placed a mask over his face, oxygen flooded him and the bursting pressure inside of him lessened slightly. "Don't worry about this. Nate is sending over some students to take care of it. Okay? You just go to school today and have fun. Okay?" A kiss was pressed against his temple, Elias leant into it, absorbing the love like a sunflower chasing the sun.

"What, what if he hurts you like he hurt... like he hurt mo-"

"Then we'll take care of it." A new voice interrupted him, David, dad. "Elias, we knew what we were getting into when we adopted you. Don't worry about it, your mother is a telekinetic and I can freeze things. I'm sure we can take a kid half our age." Fear still coursed through him, but at his father's resolve, he couldn't help but feel the knot in his chest loosen. He was being an idiot, of course they'd be fine. They'd get through this, and maybe with the gifted students coming, they could even capture Ju-Min, once and for all.

"Yeah, you're right. It'll be fine."

-

Arianne arrived in San José Airport to a face full of sunshine. The jetlag hit her immediately, drawing out an exaggerated groan as she flipped on her sunnies. Sighing at the heat, she walked out with her carry-on bag in tow, pushing away nearby pedestrians who were also hoping to catch a taxi with a 'gentle' nudge from her powers. She didn't get how people lived in places like this, was all of America this disgustingly hot? If she wasn't being paid, she would have fucked right off back to Beata. "Anyone here good at whistling?" She asked her companions, forcing her cap a little lower to chase off the harsh rays from her face.

She really didn't know what to make of them, neither of them looked particularly intimidating. Why did she feel like she was going to end up the default punching bag for whatever bastard they came across?

Bleeuggh. Why was it so damn hot? Almost immediately after the heat outside had hit Pax, she'd quickly pulled off her hoodie, tying it around her waist and leaving her plain grey T-shirt visible. Soooo good she'd come wearing short shorts.  Maybe if she got really, really, really lucky she wouldn't melt during all of this. Pax couldn't help but feel the temptation to use her gift to make it look like she was literally smoking hot, but she decided against it, if only due to how many people were around. She stood alongside Ari, cracking a smile at the subtle moving of people who found themselves a little too close to getting a taxi.

Suddenly, Pax let out a loud whistle, before turning her head towards Ari. "That good enough for you?"

Renji stood with his backpack at his side, gazing around the airport. The tall student wore a pair of tan colored shorts and a t-shirt, his usual attire. Looking to the two girls that he was with, he stayed quiet, not really knowing either of them. He wondered why whistling came up as a topic, but then again, they were girls; creatures of the random. Letting out a sigh and trying to not freak out over the heat, Renji wondered when they'd get going.

"I don't know, sugar, we'll find out." Ari teased winking, though it wasn't quite as playful when she felt like melting into the pavement and was mildly annoyed at the situation she was stuck in. But the sight of a taxi pulling in front of them chased away any hints of annoyance building, thank god. With a sigh of relief, she not so gently shoved all the other pedestrians out of the way as she tossed her stuff in the trunk and took her place in the front seat. While passing by Pax, she blew her a kiss. "You're good with your mouth, glad to have you along."

As for Renji, she waved him over laxly from her car seat. "Hurry along, we don't have all day."

Hehehe, nice. Pax winked and smiled at Ari as she blew her a kiss. Eager to get out of the scorching heat, she got into the seat behind Ari, not having any luggage to throw into the trunk of the taxi. After all, what would she need to bring besides the clothes she was wearing and her weapon? This mission seemed like it'd be simple enough. Obviously there was a risk of some motherfucker coming to fuck shit up, but that's why Pax had a weapon. Remebering that she was carrying her cinquedea where she was, after Pax was sat down she pulled up her t-shirt slightly, revealing the broad dagger/short sword attached to her stomach. Pax casually undid the small belt keeping it attached with one hand whilst keeping her shirt slightly up with the other. After a moment she let her shirt drop and stapped the blade in its sheathe to her thigh using leather straps attached to the sheathe.

Giving a nod to show that he acknowledged that the taxi was here, he turned away from the girls and gave himself a slap on the face. What the hell was wrong with him? He needed to get his game on! Too hot chicks, one guy, there were multiple ways this could go down, but he needed to be assertive and make it happen. Throwing his bag into the back of the taxi and closing the trunk, he hopped into the back seat next to Pax. "So, you ladies doing anything tonight at the hotel?" he asked in his usual charming tone.

"13 Greenway Drive, Allum Rock. There's a tip if you keep the aircon blasting high, Mister." Ari said with a cute tilt of her head, showing off her pale neck with a silver necklace on it. The pendant helpfully guided people's eyes down to her cleavage.

"Hotel? Forgetting something, Ren? We're gonna be bunking with the Parkers. Protection details, remember?" She peered over her shoulder to look over at the tall winter, surely he hadn't forgotten their mission dossier details, it had only been a few hours since they set of from Beata. He was handsome though, maybe he was one of those hot airheads without much going on between the ears. Oh well, as long as he could put up a decent fight, it didn't bother her much. "We might need to share a bed, depending on how things work out. Three of us on a double bed might be a tight fit, but I think we could make it work."

"Dibs on the middle. I'm not about to get bumped off the side." Well, she wasn't. Then again, if the heat persisted sleeping in between two people might be a good way to end up melting. The sleeping arrangement was a crappy thing to get the conversation caught up on though. "Hey Ren, why were you asking? What're you up to, man?" The words were joined with an amused smile, Pax glancing over at him as she spoke. There were a lot of things the dude could have had in mind. Wonder which one it was?

Damn, he felt so stupid. A hotel, what was he thinking? Wanting to punch himself, he tried to hide his embarrassment but perked up when he heard that they might be sleeping in the same bed. Now, Renji wasn't the type of guy to yell "wahoo!" at this sort of thing, and in fact, he usually kept quiet when he was excited, not wanting to ruin his gentlemen-like personality. Turning to Pax, he knew that his question was a bit much. "Ah, nothing. Never mind," he replied coolly, trying to brush away the idea.

"I was hoping to be pillowed between a heaven and a hard place, ah, you were too quick, Pax." There was not a single hint of shame as Ari said this all while seated beside a very uncomfortable Taxi driver who was focused on the road too intently. The songbird in her preened at the visible discomfort, and when Renji retreated coolly, a lascivious grin overtook her fine features as she raked Renji over with heated eyes. "Days might be hot here, but they say that nights are still cold. Maybe you can warm me up later."

"We're here. The total will be-"

"Keep the change." Ari tossed him a fifty and got out of the car with a swing in her hips to get her junk out of the trunk.

"Eh, maybe I'll let you take middle. You're probably too heavenly for me to possibly handle on top of Ren's hard place. How could a girl like me not be overwhelmed~?" Pax did her best to hide her amusement from the taxi driver as she stepped out of the taxi. Seemed like the dude couldn't keep his cool with all the flirting. On account of having nothing better to do, she walked over to the trunk where Ari was headed. Pax normally wouldn't have, but given all the flirting, she made sure to adjust her short shorts and then the sheathe strapped to her thigh then and there. It was just a simple pull up on the shorts and bending over for a moment to make sure the sheathe wouldn't slide around or fall off. That wouldn't hurt anyone, and all the flirting was amusing for several reasons.

Renji was surprised at how freely the girls talked about his wonderful "idea", and couldn't help but let out a laugh. "You guys can sleep where ever you like, I won't mind a bit," he added with a silly grin. Getting out of the car, he grabbed his bag and slung it over his shoulder, waiting for the girls.

Grinning at Pax's reply, Arianne passed the Renji with the suitcase dragging behind her and said teasingly while heading for the front door. "Careful what you say, Ren. I might not be able to resist-" She stopped when the scent hit her, the tang of metal that she was intimately familiar with, but it was worse than the usual schoolyard fights.

This was the stench of death.  

She held up a hand for them to be quiet, as she gently pushed on the slightly ajar door. The sight before her was freakish, not quiet what she expected. She recognised the woman on the floor, Mrs Judy Parker, her blonde hair framed her face neatly, her clothes were unruffled and not a wound on her body, however her face was twisted in agony with blood spewing from her mouth. And a few steps away from her was a heart, torn out and oozing blood still in a puddle. Was it her...?

"Ugh." That was the only sound the escaped her lips before she twisted around to hurl out the contents of her stomach into the pot plant by the door. She threw up until she was dry heaving, weak gasps escaping her. "We, we were too late."

Pax followed close behind Ari, growing somewhat confused when she signalled for silence. However, this only lasted for a second before the foul, foul stench hit her like a wave. Augh, Pax had grown accustomed to the smell of smoke due to her gift, but that was nothing compared to what faced her now. What the fuck was making the horrid stench? She watched as Ari doubled over and started throwing up, and at that point curiosity overtook her as Pax moved beside her, eyes widening as she took in the scene in front of her. Immediately she doubled over, her cheeks puffing up as her stomach contents flooded into her mouth. However, she managed to swallow it back down, wincing slightly as her throat burned. Jesus fucking Christ... Oh shit. Oh shit! Whoever did this could still be around! Adrenaline rushing through her body, Pax quickly reached for her thigh, grabbing her cinquedea from the sheathe it and holding the broad dagger defensively as she slowly moved into the house.

Pax struggled to ignore the stench as it worsened, opting to keep a smoke cloud near her nose. Not only did it smell better in general, but she'd grown used to it and it'd do her no harm. Cinquedea held in ice pick grip horizontally in front of her at eye level, Pax looked around carefully. Maybe someone was still alive? Not to mention whoever did... this could still be around. She sure as hell didn't want to end up like the poor woman who was dead on the floor.

At first he didn't think this mission would be that great, but now it was turning out to be more interesting than he thought, for the girls he'd been assigned with were quite a hoot. Slinging his bag over his shoulder, he followed the two to the front door and wondered why they'd stopped. Easily looking over Ari and Pax, he wondered what the odd scent was that came from inside the house. It was almost... metallic?

Standing behind the two, he didn't make a sound as the horror was unveiled. A woman with her throat slit and blood spewed everywhere lay on floor in front of the students and Renji cringed at the sight. Ari immediately threw up into a plant and he didn't know whether Pax was going to let the puke out or not, so he took a small step back, just in case.

Being a guy, he'd played his fair share of video games and had seen the gruesome news about gangs, crimes, homicide, etcetera, so seeing a lady's throat slit just a few steps away from him didn't have a huge impact of the Winter. "Ew," he mumbled is a melancholy sort of way after a few moments of silence that was disrupted by the sounds of puke being thrown up. Being a gentleman, he usually had a comment for most situations, but dealing with possible psycho killer that could be hiding in the shoe closet was not in his department of expertise.

Not really knowing what else to say or do, nor have any idea of how to comfort Ari and Pax, he decided to ask the obvious. "So... should we call the cops or something? Maybe just hide the body somewhere?"
