"Sabertooth and Logan will be fine." Mystique said and looked at him. "I have a feeling we shouldn't try using the um... Piss poor facilities...."
[i "I'm sure this is part of their plan,"] Michael scoffed. [i "Put us in poor conditions to attack our immune systems, rendering us unable to fight."]
Mystique nodded agreeing and cuddled Erik instinctively. Her body heat was higher than most and so she naturally gave her warmth to him.
The cell they were being held in was cold and damp. Not ideal conditions for staying in good health, if they were going to be kept locked up for long. [b "Everyone is going to need to huddle together to stay warm. Body heat is going to be our only solution down here,"] he looked to the dripping ceiling.
"I'm... I'm alright... Just trying to stay calm... Alpha is freaking out... She hates being caged." She said and nuzzled him. "Thanks for trying to help me though...."
[b "Are you alright?"] he settled her in his arms, being careful not to touch her wounded hands.
[i "She heals quickly. Not quite as fast as Logan, but she won't need a hospital or anything. The burns were cauterized by the electricity so infection shouldn't be a problem,"] Michael sat close by, watching his mother with sad eyes.
Ari scooted over to Alex and curled up on his lap for comfort and warmth.
[i "Listen to the ladies, boy. Wouldn't want to get hurt now, would you?"] the man taunted.
Michael stood and grabbed Alex's arms, hauling him backwards. [i "Mom knows what she's doing. We need you to be calm right now,"] he placated his father, knowing full well what a Summers man is capable of when agitated.
"A-alex... I'm fine, I should be able to heal in a few days..."
Mystique sighed and grabbed a sheet from a nearby cot shredding it into strips. She bandaged Ari's hands carefully and said. "Alex, don't try reasoning with them, they won't listen."
[b "Give us some goddamn bandages or something!"] Alex approached the bars.
The man on the other side smirked. [i "Like I said, prisoner. We're under no obligation to do fuck all for you lot. She should have thought twice before pulling that move. Now she can suffer the consequences."]
She shook having flashbacks of her years in these cells and whimpered. She could smell the burned flesh on her hands and looked at how bad it was.
Mystique frowned and went over cautiously. She knelt in front of Ari and inspected the burns. "Second degree burns..."
[b "Are you fucking kidding me?"] Alex yelled at the laughing guards on the other side of the bars, rushing forward to wrap an arm around her.
[i "Mom?"] Michael was by her side next, taking her hands in his to examine the burns.
Ari coughed and struggled slightly. She was soon tossed into a cell watching as the others were pushed in as well. It was a large cell like bunker. Big enough to fit everyone but it had leaks and smelled like backed up sewage. They took her gag off and left them all in the cell. She looked around for any kind of escape route instinctively and stood touching the metal bars of the cell door. She was flown back by a large electric shock and skidded across the concrete floor. She winced and looked at the burns on her hands.
[b "We aren't fighting you!"] Alex snapped as one of the guards grabbed Storm by the hair, yanking her to her knees. [b "Enough!"]
[i "Royalty or not, you're prisoners. We're going to treat you like it,"] the leader smacked him across the face. [i "Now fall in line before you make things worse for yourselves."]
Ari coughed and was unchained from the door before being led out. She blinked looking for Alex and Michael and panicked when she couldn't smell them.
