Alex caught sight of Erik flinching at the mention of the twisted man who'd conducted the experiments. If possible, Magneto's skin tone grew more pale. [i "I don't wish to speak of that monster,"] Erik spat, physically ill at the memory of experiments he and other children had been subjected to to push the boundaries of science.
[b "We're going to walk out of here, okay?"] Alex tried to reassure him. [b "No one is going to be experimented on. We won't allow it."]
"Probably was more cramped and smelly back then, right?" She said and watched him.
Mystique could tell Ari had done an immense amount of research on world war two and the holocaust and said. "He doesn't normally talk about what happened to him that much... But i can't blame him, knowing about the holocaust and all that."
"Actually history books for the most part leave out a lot of what happened, especially to those like us. Josef Mengele would do the most horrifying experiments on mutants, twins and even a family who all had dwarfism....."
[b "You don't exactly make my life stress-free, you know?"] Alex scoffed at her before tightening his hold.
He'd forgotten about Erik's earlier struggle, turning to the older man with concern as Ari voiced her worry. Thankfully, Magneto looked no worse for wear with Mystique still firmly beside him with a reassuring hand on his arm. [i "I'm well enough, I assure you,"] his voice was more steady than in the train car. [i "Believe it or not, the train was more upsetting than being in here."]
She nuzzled him and yawned. "Worry wart." She teased and curled up on his lap. She peeked at Erik and asked in German. "Are you feeling okay?"
Alex hugged her back tightly but carefully enough not to agitate her aching body. [b "We'll get you back to the castle as soon as we can, for medical treatment,"] he assured her. [b "Or we'll call for someone to check you out here. I don't feel comfortable with you marching into battle without at least getting examined."]
"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.
