"Yes, I'll be getting the keys when I can." He said and left.
Ari sighed and hugged Alex. "It'll be soon, I promise, love."
[b "With half of them being taken out of the equation, our ability to get out of here in one piece goes up,"] Alex agreed with Jasper. [b "One of them is bound to have keys to get these fucking things off. Once our powers are back, they can't stop us."]
"The cook is already a slob in the kitchen and commonly uses it for mutants." He said. "It will simply be chalked up to a simple mix up of the food."
Ari ate part of her food before handing it to Michael to finish and sipped her water slowly watching.
Alex never thought he'd be so grateful to see a man he barely knew. [b "You're a lifesaver,"] he breathed his thanks, cracking the bottle of water to gulp down.
[i "Cyanide won't draw attention to us?"] Storm looked slightly worried that the plan might backfire. [i "If half of them drop dead?"]
A guard came to their cell and checked ari's recognize, healing them. His hat was tilted forward to hide his features a bit but one could recognize jasper's familiar cologne. He grimaced at the food and water and handed out some jerky and water bottles to everyone.
Ari watched him and took her food and water last. "Thank you." She whispered and earned that familiar soft pat on the head.
"Half of these guards will be dead by morning, a dash of cyanide in their food." He whispered before removing the buckets.
[i "We've been held in three separate cells since yesterday. Excuse me if I don't have much faith in Jasper's plan,"] Scott huffed, leading Jean to reprimand him with a slap on the arm.
[b "If you'd have been where you needed to be and taken your damn shot, maybe we wouldn't have been caught,"] Alex rebutted.
Ari glared at Scott and snarled lowly. "Jasper can see the future and travels between past, future and present. Perhaps you should put more faith in others rather than whining about the current situation."
In the corner of the room, Jean was quietly trying to get Scott to hush his bitching. [i "Now is not the time,"] she snapped at him as he whined about their situation. [i "No one thought it would be like this."]
[i "That's because no one thought this through at all!"] he hissed in return.
[b "Keep it up and I'll shut you up myself,"] Alex turned his glare towards his brother.
She nuzzled him and hugged him softly. "I love you. "
As much as he didn't want to think about what she had planned, he wasn't going to question her methods. [b "I'll do my best to stay calm,"] he promised, kissing her forehead.
"Some of it might make you a little jealous.... But just remember that these guards are absolutely repulsive and disgusting to me." She said and kissed his cheek.
Alex rested a hand on her lower back, wanting to steady her if she needed. [b "Do I want to know what the big guns are, in case you need help?"] he asked.
She watched them leave and sighed. She leaned on Alex and looked up at him. "You know I'm going to be pulling out the big guns in order to kill as many of those stupid idiots for guards before they come rescue us...."
Alex couldn't help but smirk at their sudden lapse in bravery. [b "I kind of like this game. What do you guys want to bet she finds something worse than the last guy?"]
[i "I'll put twenty bucks on that bet,"] Michael joined the taunts.
Ari looked at the other two and snarled. "Both of you should follow him.... Or should I try to see if I can smell anything about you too?"
