    Leah shrugged
    "I'm still not sure what my power is or how to even use it, so I would be useless"
    She had stepped back into their now home and started putting more items away, Claus was right, they really hadn't had much time to put everything away.



    Leah suddenly heard a loud noise from outside and next thing she knew Violet was pushing past Claus and shutting the door. Leah did the first thing that came to mind, she ducked behind the counter. When she heard Violet say she didn't think they were being aimed at, she peeked over the counter.
    "What do you think they were aiming at if not us?"

    When the gunshot rang out and Violet ran in closing the door behind her, Claus quickly moved away from the door and dropped to the ground behind a nearby wall, hoping to avoid any stray sniper fire that might come their way.
    "A sniper...they could be just about anywhere. I doubt that I would be able to sense them from here."
    Shaking his head, he turned to Violet.
    "We should make that sniper our top priority. Until we know for certain who they are and who their target is, there's always the chance they could be a threat. It wouldn't do us much good to find Arc or Argon or whatever his name is if we end up taking a bullet to the head for our trouble."
    He then turned his head back to the door, listening closely to see if he could hear more gunfire.
    "If anyone has any ideas or suggestions, I would certainly be open to them right now. Otherwise, I suppose the only sensible course of action would be to lay low for a while and hope that the matter resolves itself."

    Violent responded to them after remembering what Arc had told her earlier.
    "There are a lot of us who have been experimented on, so it could be anything. But I do have a suspicion it is related to Argon. He told me the rest of our unit was used in an experiment, and with the exception of me, everyone else is built to work together for different tasks, as one entity. A shared consciousness. Everyone has their role and their unique abilities, and they are trying to get him forced back into their group. Chances are, that must be a gunner or sniper that is part of this experimental unit shooting at Argon. I don't know why, unless they just want to maim him for capture. If we hear a second shot, it will probably mean that Argon was not killed after the first, or, I could be entirely wrong and someone is just hunting with a big rifle."
    She knew that if the threat was targeting anyone it could see, it would be best to be unseen. This meant one would need to creep behind cover or turn invisible. For her, turning invisible would be faster, and she began stripping off her clothes quickly.
    "I'm going to make use of my camouflage and take a look from someplace high to figure out the source of the gunfire. Unless you can sneak around from something you have no idea what it is or can turn invisible, I suggest you stay behind until I come back."
    She was stark naked now, a pile of her military surplus clothes at her. But that did not matter to her, as her advanced color-changing skin based off of chameleon biology turned her nearly invisible as she undressed. Walking to the door, she heard another gunshot just like before.
    "I wonder if that one killed him." She dryly spoke when she stopped at the door. "I'll go out and check now, come along if you want."

    Arc knew where the sniper Six was located. When he tried to run past the other side of the building he was hiding behind, a shot slammed down in front of him. Some seconds later, the gunshot echoed.

    Those are some fast reflexes that guy has. I'll be stuck here unless his view can be obscured or if I can tunnel into the ground, which I can't do.

    Leah quickly jumped up, she was about to offer Violet to use the other room to change, but she didn't want to interrupt Violet. So instead averted her eyes


    Leah looked up when Violet mentioned them coming along with they wanted.
    "I'm afraid I would probably be useless in this situation and would probably just get in the way. "

    OoT: Sorry for the long Hiatus, Laptop just recently repaired and cleared work so gonna try to get back into the grove of things. Enough excuses time to post!

    Blaze giving a exasperated sigh decided it would be best if he just didn't argue, but he wouldn't get anything done if he got drunk.
    "Alright, you said that was just a warm up? What's the real part of your training then?' Blaze asked getting up from the stone bench the pair was sitting on.
    Cracking her knuckles Frost got up began walking over to a stone pillar. "Ordinarily target practice, speed tests, that sort of thing... but seeing as you came here to observe and then try to learn something those won't work.....*Sigh* I guess I'll start from the basics then, Make a fireball or bolt or something"
    "Uhhh How?"
    As Blaze gave Frost a dumbfounded look she returned it with one of her own after his question.
    "What do you mean how? You are the one with fire powers not me!" clutching her forehead Frost realize she would have to start back at truly the basics. "You do have power, right? This hasn't been some sort of bad joke? When did you actually use them?"
    "Yes I have powers, I wouldn't joke about being put through that type of torture! As for using them.... I'm not sure exactly how but if i snap my fingers while thinking about it, I can make a bright flash that blinds.... Oh and i manage to make a stream of fire once, but was about to die so can't really count that as knowing how"
    Frost just shook her head at Blaze, which to his dismay didn't help the situation
    "Well how did you learn huh, there has to be some way seeing as we just don't know about them"
    "That's like asking a lion how it roars, how an artist makes his masterpiece, how a musician makes music he enjoys... There is no set way you just figure it out, I was forced to or die at the labs during the testing. it doesn't really matter how, just that you know you can and you find your way of doing it. Now watch" Frost angrily ranted before effortlessly forming an ice claw. "I made this without even thinking, breathing, and it moves as if it was one with me. I can't explain how i make it do so it just does, ever since i first had to make a claw its been like this. Now you need to do the same, make your fire work without effort!" Without warning Frost lunged after Blaze aiming to strike him down.
    With no idea what had gotten into her and no chance to dodge Blaze reflexively put his hands out, and a small jet of fire came out. Frost smiled and blew a gentle chill of breathe extinguishing the fire, her sudden charge got the response she wanted.
    "Now see, you can't explain how you did it, but you made it happen. Now take that and experiment, test want you can do. Use those notes, see what all they have. Now If you don't mind..." Frost gave a stretch before continuing on training. She began shredding several pillars of the build, performing beautiful acrobatic moves while landing strikes and moving at break neck speeds.

    Panting after her display, Frost grabbed Blaze's bottle of sake and downed it before calling Blaze who also was winded from testing his powers.
    "Haaa, come on, this should be enough of a start.... Hmmm i think one of the others houses are near here. Wonder if it would be rude to go check on them"
    "I don't see why not, if anything it will be to make sure they are okay"
    "Alright let's head then"

    OOT: Brother Ginger! I knew you'd come. Wonderful!

    Unfazed by Violet's nudity, Claus considered their situation carefully as she left to investigate.
    "This would be much easier if I could get my hands on the sniper rifle I had on the island...well, I suppose it can't be helped."
    He turned to Leah, motioning outside.
    "I'm going out through the back entrance. If nothing else, I can get a better idea of where the sniper fire is coming from if I hear it outside. Stay low and stay behind cover."
    He ducked down and made his way out through the back entrance, staying close to the wall as he looked around. As far as he could tell, the gunfire wasn't coming from behind the house, just as he assumed. Carefully, he made his way to the corner of the building and poked his head around the corner to see if he could find anything. Unfortunately, there was nothing out of the ordinary within his eyesight. He let out a slight groan of frustration, quietly cursing his lack of a scope or even a set of binoculars.
    "Well, at the very least, it seems that there are no hostiles in the immediate area. Of course, that still means the sniper could be...anywhere but here."

    Just as he was thinking that to himself, his ears perked up and he heard footsteps quickly approaching along with heavy, ragged breathing. Whoever it was, they were coming quickly and Claus readied himself for them to turn the corner. When they did so just a moment later, he reacted almost instantly, grabbing the intruder and slamming them against the wall. Then, in the same swift movement, he turned them around and locked them in a sleeper hold, whispering in their ear to avoid drawing attention.
    "Identify yourself."
    His grip quickly loosened as he took a closer look at the intruder and realization set in...the realization that he was currently choking a very shocked and confused Masato.


    When Claus let him go, Masato gasped for air and gave Claus a bewildered and somewhat indignant about.
    "What was that all about?!"

    He questioned Claus in a quiet but very angry whisper, to which Claus merely shrugged.
    "I thought you were the enemy."

    "You know, I got that."
    "In all fairness, you ran right towards my house. You really should have seen this coming."
    "Remind me to never do you any more favors."
    Claus tilted his head slightly.
    "Favors...?"

    Masato picked up the duffel bag that he'd dropped during his scuffle with Claus and nodded.
    "Atlas got me a ride over here and sent this with me; he said it had some of your gear in it. He figured you might need it pretty soon and boy, was he right about that."

    "Hmm. Impeccable timing."
    He opened the door and motioned for Masato to step in. He did so and Claus quickly followed behind him, closing and locking the door behind himself as he did. The two of them carefully made their way back to Leah, staying low and moving as carefully as possible. When they made it, Claus spoke up.
    "Finally, a little bit of good news. Masato was nearby and he's brought us something to even the playing field."

    Masato waved to Leah and motioned towards the bag.
    "Got some guns here, you want in on this, Leah?"

    Leah nodded and decided to stay low in the kitchen. Wherever the shooting was taking place was in the front of the building, the counter was between her and the door and would provide a bit of a shield. When Claus was no longer in their home. Leah rested her head against the cupboard door looking up at the ceiling. She felt useless in these situations, which got her wondering. She looked down at her hand, remembering what everyone had said about her, that she was pretty powerful, but she wondered how she could contain so much power and what her ability was. She stared at her hand trying to concentrate, at first nothing happened and she almost felt it useless. She then remembered each time something happened, she had been panicking.

    She closed her eyes for a moment and started thinking about her surrounding, and the fact that there was possibly someone near by wanting to kill them. She opened her eyes and kept her mind focused on the situation she was in. She held up her hand to expose the bolts of black and red lightning surrounding it, the air around her began to circle her, blowing a few of the items off the counter, a small black started to form at the end of her fingertips, slowly increasing in size. Leah's eyes grew wide upon seeing this for the very first time, she started to panic and the hole began to grow, but she suddenly heard the door open, which startled her and she quickly looked in the direction the noise came from, the hole and the lightning all disappeared as if nothing happened, only a few things had been scattered on the ground.


    When she heard Clause voice, she was rather relieved. She began cleaning up the mess she made as quickly as she could. She was in the middle of picking some papers up when Clause and Masato entered the room. She looked up at Clause as he spoke about the good news. Leah stood up and placed the items that fell, back on the counter. She turned to look back at the bag.
    "It's been a while since I shot a gun"
    She, clause and her brother would go to the range from time to time, they at one time talked her into a game of paintball with them, she didn't want to go, but they begged and pleaded with her until she said yes. They all had a blast and walked away with a few bruises. The thought brought a smile to her face. She quickly shook it off
    "I'll take the smallest gun you have"
    Finally something she could be useful at

    Having stepped out of the house, Violet began to leave the area. Looking back, she wondered if maybe the others would join in on her search for Arc.
    Will they come or not? Not that it matters to me.

    Meanwhile, Arc searched for a way of getting past the miles-away sniper.

    "He has me pinned. Given enough time, I should be able to figure a way of here."

    Six looked through the scope of his 30-foot rifle. The barrel utilized an odd collapsible system for transport, and it fired slugs that weighed a tenth of pound. His target hid from him at a range of roughly eight miles.

    "Five, I have the location of Thirteen. Transmitting it to you now. He has destroyed Three and Four."
    Five, who had been knocked out of the helicopter when Two was killed earlier, had been recovered from the sea and redeployed to search for Arc. Five rapidly ran through the streets, venting flames from his back in an "X" pattern to propel and maneuver him through the abandoned urban landscape.
    "Acknowledged, Six. I will flame him out."
    "One has become interested in Thirteen's survival capabilities and skill. A message from One: 'Already, he has killed Two, Three and Four. Do not let yourself continue this consecutive kill count, Five.' Understood?"
    It was at this moment Five Saw Arc. The screech of his super-heated flame thrusters caught Arc's attention, and he turned around to see where the sound was coming from.
    "Message understood, Six. Target spotted."
    "Commence attack, Five."
    "Commencing attack, Six."
    Five launched into the air above the buildings, killing his thrusters and flying through the air silently. When he reacehed the pinnacle of his air-born arc, his thrusters blasted at full power and he rocketed towards Arc to bash him

    OOT:
    Haven't posted lately due to work and getting busy with a custom drone build.

    Masato nodded back.
    "Sure thing."
    He began to dig through the bag and soon pulled out a 9mm pistol which he handed to Leah.
    "Something like this ought to work."


    Claus was about to reach into the bag when he saw Leah holding a pistol, which made him hesitate slightly.
    "Hmm...?"
    Something about seeing Leah with a gun made him pause for a moment and take a closer look.
    "That...isn't the first time you've held a pistol. Something about it looks familiar, though I can't quite figure out why."
    He shook his head and turned his attention back to the duffel bag.
    "Well, that can wait for another time. We have more pressing matters to take care of."
    As he spoke, he pulled out a familiar-looking sniper rifle, inspecting it briefly before giving a nod of approval.
    "Here I thought I wouldn't need this again so soon. What a day this has been."
    He slung it over his back, muttering out loud.
    "I still have doubts as to how viable a laser rifle is for stealth."


    With a wide grin, Masato pulled out a familiar laser rifle and turned it on.
    "Eh. It's pretty cool, though."


    Claus also pulled out a pair of binoculars and handed them to Leah.
    "If you wouldn't mind, it would be handy to have a spotter since we still have no idea where this sniper is hiding."
    When they finished picking out their gear, Claus brought them together to discuss their strategy.
    "We'll start by going out the back door again. From there, we'll have to move from cover to cover while we're looking for the sniper. We'll have to be quick about it since Violet had quite a head start on us, but whatever you do, don't be careless."
    He gave a quick glance to Masato in particular, who couldn't help being a little offended.
    "Let's move. Stay low, follow my lead and do not stay out in the open any longer than you have to."

    "Whoa, whoa, whoa. Did you just make yourself team captain? Because I don't remember us taking a vote on that."
    "Fair enough. Would you like to take the lead?"
    Masato sat in stunned silence for a moment before giving a defeated shake of his head. Claus rolled his eyes.
    "I thought as much."
    As Claus made his way to the back door,
    Masato turned to Leah and whispered.
    "Hey, are you sure you're gonna be okay? If you're not sure you can handle something like this, you can just leave it to me and Claus."

    OOT no problem, I to am having a bit of a hard time posting. Kids just started school and we are still getting into the swing of things. juggling work and school with the kids is exhausting lol. I at least try to post once a week tho if i can

    Leah took the gun and examined it. Checking out the weight and sight.
    "This should work perfectly"

    Leah had a excited look on her face when he mentioned it not being the first time she held a pistol. She smiled and replied while they geared up.
    "You are right, it is not the first time I held a pistol. We all used to go shooting together."
    She looked down at the gun
    "You and brother even convinced me to go out to shoot paintball guns. We all had a blast, its a day I will never forget"

    Leah looked at the binoculars
    "Sure"
    she took the binoculars and hung it over her neck. As they headed out, she stayed in the back of the group wanting to be the last one out. Before they exited, Masato had turned to her and whispered

    Leah gave a slight nod
    "I believe I should be fine, thank you for your concern. But I need to be able to help, even if it means spotting. If I need to I can snipe anyone if needed. I have never shot anyone other than during a paintball battle. But I am a good sniper"
    she looked over at Claus
    "If he could remember, I'm sure he would agree"
