Cyclops presses a small red button on the wall that says open cells and I glare at him.
?What?! I did as you asked me to do Magpie!? He yells at me.
?You were supposed to do all cool-like!? I yell at him. He just frowns and shakes his head at me while the cell doors open. I stop my yelling as wary and confused mutants cautiously exit the safety of their personal prisons. They are all moving too slow and I quickly grow impatient at their cautiousness.
?HURRY IT UP!! I SET YOU FREE FOR A REASON SO STOP BEING SO SLOW AND GET OUT OF HERE BEFORE THE GAURDS COME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!? I scream at them. This ends them into action and they are all making a break for the door, including us at the head of the group. We reach the steel looking doors and try to pry them open to no prevail. I turn my head to Scott.
?Cyclops, get the doors open!? He blows at hole right through it and I glare at his.
?What is it this time?! I opened the doors!? He yells at me.
?You could have just pressed the button over there, ya know.? I say pointing to a small black button labeled as ?Open Doors?. He gives me an angry scowl and presses the button, making the doors slide open the rest of the way. He gives me an icy smile (if you can?t tell, he doesn?t like me very much).
?Better, Madame Magpie?? He asks with sarcasm and malice. I smirk at him and nod, making him glare and growl at me. I chuckle and face the mutant we just set free.
?I don?t know what any of you people are gifted with but if you see a MRD soldier... KICK THEIR BUTT!!? I scream making all of their grimy disheveled face instantly light up. I turn to face the hallway and we all storm the halls, taking out anyone who stands in our way.
We all keep running until we reach the final set of doors. I look for a button to open the doors or some sort of key pad but it is sealed completely. I hear a startled cry and turn around to see everyone in our revised group being restrained by a MRD soldier except for me. A man with salt and pepper hair suddenly walks through the crowd with a triumphant look in his eyes. I instantly knew that it is Him, the Voice, the inhumane creature that has tormented me since I got here. I stalk towards him until we are only 3 feet apart, a glare on my face.
?Now Magonolia, is that any way to look at me when I have your only friends you?ve ever had in my captivity? If I want to, I could have them all be executed with a wave of my hand.? I give a small chuckle that obviously makes him nervous.
?Well, here?s the thing, I don?t really care about them, they?re just my pawns for getting out of this joint!? I say without a care in the world. I hear a small gasp and I can tell that it?s Molly. I smirk, knowing that Rex, Gambit, and Hunter will get out safely.
?You know, it?s actually kind of cute that everyone here thought that I cared about them, really! I guess that I should have all of you know that you were never important to me, not even now. Sorry to burst your bubble.? I hear a small growl and suddenly Curt and his captor are standing next to me, Curt with hurt in his eyes.
?Please, please Maggie, tell me it?s not true!? He pleads. I give him a cruel smile and grab his hair, yanking him head in a way so that his ear is right next to my mouth.
?Oh, but it is, Little Boy Blue!? Then, I lightly tap the side of his head with mine. It was a code that we made up 7 months ago for ?Just go with it, it will turn out okay, I promise!?
His eyes fill with hurt that only I can tell is fake and he hangs his head and let out a little chuckle that sounds very similar to a sob. He shakes his head and looks at me with a glint in his eye.
?You know, people will fall for anything these days.? I say in a sly tone and all of the captors including the Voice drop to the ground.
it's cool that you made Maggie make Rex visible.that is awesome 2 parts of ur story.
you are awesome at writing this and cliffhangers are fun yet not proper writing which is weird since every one kinda does them.
hope 2 see more chapters
?Why did you come back?? I looked over to see an angry looking Kitty Pryde. She has always severely disliked me, but I am quite shocked to hear those words come out of her mouth. The shock is soon replaced by hurt, but most of all anger.
?What was that, Pryde? Ask that again.? I say in a cool, calm, and collected voice, and everyone falls silent.
?Why did you come back? It?s not that hard of a question. But no one really wants you here besides Kurt, you know that right?? I give her an icy smile.
?Well, I came here because people actually do like me; I made friends. I know, hard to believe, right? But now, I have a family, and it isn?t your call to say whether I come back or not, because, quite frankly, you aren?t a part of my family! So, I would run along before I send Hunter?s ghosts after you.? I say while smiling the whole time. By now, I usually would have taken her down, but I didn?t want to make people hate me again so soon, so I decide to take the actually pretty threatening verbal approach. Kitty looks at my hands, looking scared for a second before running off and I look down to see them completely surrounded with black, shadows. I smile in awe at my new gift and lightly touch the banner. Suddenly the whole banner turn black, then it disappears. But I know that it?s still there, I feel still with the tips of my fingers. I touch it with my other hand as well and am shock to see it become visible again. One hand equals invisible, two hands equals visible. Then, I have a brilliant idea.
?Rex, come here, please.? I hear a small shuffle of feet coming over to me.
?Give me both of your hands, just trust me, k?? I hold my hand out to where he is, with my palms up. I feel his warm, rough hands be set on my cold, soft ones. Suddenly, standing in front of me is a tall and skinny boy, with fluffy ginger hair and deep blue eyes. He was wearing a grey t-shirt with a red jacket over it and light denim jean. He looked down at me, then looked at himself, gasped, and started to cry.
?Rex? Is that really you??
HAHAHA! Happy Holidays Cliffhanger!
I love you all 92!
I let the three girls, Aaron, Hope, and Thalia, go back to their previous business and give Rex a small high five.
?Are you ready for some surprises, Rex?? I whisper into Rex?s ear. I feel him nod, so I loop my arm with his and we begin to skip down the like the weirdoes we are. As we skip through the halls, I spot a familiar blonde with blue highlights talking to my favorite haunting victim. I pull Rex with my over to Hunter until we are right behind him.
?You didn?t even try to help us, Master! We needed you and you left us, so now, you will feel our wrath!? I whisper into his ear. At the same time, Rex and I grab poor Hunter?s arms and legs, and I clamp my hand over his mouth. We start to run away and we hear Lucas calling out for his missing friend. I kick a dark classroom open, and we gently toss my buddy inside. I let go of Rex and turn on the lights, so he can see me. I immediately put my hand to his mouth to make him be quiet.
?Shh, be vewy (very) quiet, I?m hunting wabbits (rabbits)!? I say quoting Elmer Fudd from the Looney Toons. I feel him smile into my hand and I release my hold on his mouth. He immediately hugs me and spins my around.
?You?re finally back! I have missed you so much! I never really got to say hi, or anything!? I give him my tightest bear-hug until he?s gasping for breath.
?Hugging tightly.. can?t breath.. going down.. help!? I chuckle and release him from my python-like hug.
?So, no one knows I?m here, so you can?t tell anyone! K?? He nods and I ruffle his hair in a giddy fashion.
?Now, get out so I can surprise my other peers!? He gives me a soft look.
?I?m really glad you?re back, but, uh, what should I tell Lucas?? I toss him a carefree look.
?That you escaped the ghosts, obviously!? I chuckle and shove him out the door that he had opened moments before. I close the door softly and turn back to where Rex was.
?I think that Dorrie should be next. How bout you??
?I think that that would be fun, but I think that we should surprise everyone now, huh??
I smile at where his voice is and walk over to him. I offer him my hand and he lightly grips my hand with his large, rough one. I smile, knowing that he can?t see and drag him to the door. The second that I?m out, I run to the main hallway to see 99% of the students waiting underneath the Welcome Home banner, waiting for my return. I let out a silent gasp, and my eyes fill with tears that I can?t even explain. Just knowing that so many people care about me brings tears to my eyes. I wipe the tears away and walk forward until I am right behind the large group of mutants.
?I?ll take it that this means that you are either going to swarm me and force me back out, or that you missed me.? I hear a collective gasp and I release Rex?s hand before anyone can turn around. Almost immediately I am bombarded with questions of: Where were you? Are you okay? What was it like over on the other side? How did you escape?
But, through all of this, one question caught my attention.
I turn Thalia around while keeping my hand on her mouth and not surprisingly, hear her friends searching for her.
?Not. A. Word. Understood?? She nods vigorously and the second that I let go of her mouth, she wraps her arm around my waist and cries into me.
?Shh, shh, it?s all okay; I?m here and I?m safe,? I whisper to into her ear. She nods and I hold her at arm?s length.
?No one knows I?m here and I NEED to trust you to keep this a secret, alright?? She nods and I smile.
?That sounds good! I?ll go and get Hope next. Be right back; I promise.? I grab me amigo?s hand and we run through the halls until we find a pale girl with hair so light blonde it?s almost white, Hope. I cover her mouth and pull her into me so I can pull her one handedly and she almost immediately goes limp. Rex can tell, so he helps me pick her up and bring her to the same classroom as Thalia. I gently set her down and let go of Rex so she knows that we won?t hurt her. She has a similar reaction as
Thalia with hugging and crying and all that jazz. I reassure her that I?m fine and turn to leave with Rex again when I feel a cold hand on my arm.
?Be safe.? Was all Hope said before I left to find the last ankle-biter, Aaron Ashley. I hear her calling out for Storm so I begin to run to stop her from blowing my cover. I see her up ahead and Ororo is not too far off from her, so I run with Rex even faster and clamp my hand on her mouth from behind forcing her to stop. The second I loop my arm around her, she starts kicking and thrashing. I stage whisper for Rex to help, so he puts his hands over her mouth and grabs her torso, while I grab each kicking leg. We start to swiftly walk when I hear a soft yelp.
?The little ankle-biter bit my hand!!? I chuckle.
? Buttercup!? I walk even faster. When we reach the door, I let go of one leg to open the door when Aaron?s leg slams into my ribs. I almost drop her other leg, but manage to keep my hold and open the door at the same time. She lets out another vicious kick that lands on my jaw. I completely drop her and Rex lightly shoves her inside.
?I guess you remembered my training, eh?? At my voice, Aaron turns around and gasps with tears filling her eyes.
?You?ve been gone forever! I was so afraid without you here! I thought you weren?t gonna come back.?She whispers the last part and I let out a little gasp.
?I would never leave you guys for too long! I was actually pretty scared too. But I?m here now, so you can?t tell anyone. I?m trying to surprise the other students!? I?m actually getting pretty excited to have everyone know that I?m back. Only a few people would ever be able to tell though.
But one person kept running through my head: Dorrie. The last time I saw her was at the fight between us and the goons. I also couldn?t wait to see my other power class friends.
Are you going to add Victoria, my character that I posted a while ago. I'm not trying to be impatient or anything, I'm just asking. If you need her info again, I can re-post it. And here's her friend and my other character. If you don't want to add them, that's fine.
Mutant Name: Sensor
Real Name: Unknown
Power: Just by looking at someone, he can figure out everything about them, even some things that they don't know or have forgotten. He can block out telepaths, mutant detectors (Like Cerebro) and mutants that have powers that give them information about someone. He can also tell if someone is lying or telling the truth
Looks: Long blonde hair, light green eyes, tan skin
Clothes: Casual t-shirt, shorts, sneakers
Personality: Quiet, mysterious, kind, helpful, curious about what other Mutant's powers are
Extra: He has a crush on Victoria.
Backstory: His past is mostly unknown, except for that he ran away from home, and somehow learned of Xaiver's. He helped out fellow mutants, and told them where Xaiver's "school" was. (But he obviously made sure they could be trusted first) He never traveled with anyone, until he met Victoria. He thought she was beautiful, and tried to convince her that she didn't need to hide all the time. He traveled with her to Xaiver's, where he now stays. Every once in a while he'll take a trip to the town for a week, and then come back.
