She gets there pretty quickly, tires squealing a bit as she brakes suddenly.

"Silver, we're getting out of here, regroup?"

Permalink

"Right, coming."

Permalink

They pile into the car, Seven last in line.

Permalink

The shadows don't chase them as they drive off.

Permalink

Seven flips the bird at the shadows as they drive away.

He turns to the telekinetic.  "Any idea what that was about?"

Permalink

She shakes her head. "No clue."

Permalink

"You sure?"  He sighs.  "Anywhere you want to be dropped off?"

Permalink

"Uh. Yeah. My apartment? But I'm not sure they won't come back..."

Permalink

"You guys up for keeping watch the rest of the night?" he asks.  "We probably can't do it regularly, but I'll give you our emergency number, if you're worried you're still in danger."

Permalink

"That'd be nice..." the woman says, voice a bit quiet.

Permalink

"I'm good with it," Silver says.

Permalink

"Can't promise I'll be alert, but I can make do."

Permalink

"Should probably be Silver and me doing the actual lookout stuff if there's no one to interrogate, anyway."

Permalink

"Yeah. Might be smart for me to nap while you guys start, then if one of you flags I can take over?"

Permalink

"Sounds good to me."

Permalink

"Back seats lay flat, so I'll be good." The streets are nearly deserted this time of night, so while there's stoplights in their way, she's able to make it to the apartment soon enough.

Permalink

Seven will likely flag first, assuming no one shows up before then.

Permalink

Not while he's on watch.

Silver's still going strong, but Codex got some sleep, so she'll take over.

Permalink

Zzz.

Permalink

Fortunately nothing else happens in the night, nor after the woman asks them to escort her to her workplace (she doesn't feel she'll need any help afterwards) and Silver doesn't need to be anywhere the next day, so can thoroughly crash once they're home.

"Thanks for the help," Codex says to Mach Seven once everyone's settled.

Permalink

"No problem," he says, sprawled over a couch.

Permalink

"Sorry my power's not the best for all - " She waves a hand. "This mess. But at least we did something..."

Permalink

"No worries.  Gotta have a getaway driver, right?"  He frowns pensively.  "Out of curiosity what exactly is your power?  I'm unclear."

Permalink

"I learn the languages of anyone I'm close enough to, distance wise. It's a bit buggy at times, talking to someone helps. Ilmari - if someone lies to him, he'll know, and sometimes he'll get the truth. I think it's trending to more generalized 'knowing things.' But maybe more generalized communication, it's - a very weird and unspecific power. Good for utility, though."
