Lorelai frowned. She brushed off Hector’s warning,”I’ll be fine.”
Solana could tell Lorelai wasn’t very happy about Hector’s warning. She smiled faintly, not sure what to do. Then Soma was awake, and Lorelai went over to him and knelt down,”Hey, good to see you awake. How are you feeling? You had me worried.”
Lorelai put her hand on his forehead like she was checking for a fever. She wasn’t sure what she expected, he always felt too warm to her. He just didn’t look entirely well, but she’d already healed him so she wasn’t sure what else to do.
This left Solana standing awkwardly by herself. After a moment she decided to go stand closer to Hector. She liked Lorelai, but if she was being honest Soma made her just a little nervous still.
"That all depends on your definition to be honest I think things outside of here are fucked but as for right now nothing has changed he's still doing whatever it is he's doing so I'd say no he isn't any better, but you'd best not worry about Soma you'll die long before Soma does. Not to sound rude or anything it's just Soma has a tendency to outlive everyone a million times over." Hector moved his foot away from Soma just encase Soma did decide to wake up Hector didn't want to lose his foot. He went over to the chair and sat down looking across towards Soma. "So find anything interesting while you were on your little recon mission? Soma groaned he felt like a small truck had hit him his stomach ached as well as he tried to move. "Don't worry about me I'm fine I'll just help myself."
The girls managed to find some clothes, and a few even fit. After picking out their favorites they went to the bathroom to let Lorelai soak in the tub. A bath seemed like a good idea, and she wasn’t sure when she’d get a chance to bathe again, so Solana washed herself off mostly using the sink and washcloths, to keep the bath water fresh for Lorelai. While they washed and soaked, the two talked a little.
“Do you think we’ll get out of here?” Solana asked. She hoped so, but at the same time out here didn’t seem very safe and she wasn’t sure of their odds getting very far.
Lorelai leaned on the edge of the tub,”I think so. I have to, right? Otherwise why bother. But really, I think we’ll manage. The real question is, once we’re far enough away, do you think we can make it to an ocean? Or even just a really big lake. I’d love to see that much water in one place.”
Solana couldn’t help but laugh. Hearing a girl with a mermaid tail dreaming about the ocean just tickled her a little,”Maybe we can. I suppose I’d like to see that too, but also plenty of plants growing. Fields of grass and flowers.”
Lorelai smiled and rested her head against the edge of the tub, her tail waving lazily in the water,”Yeah… I wonder where the boys want to go. Soma seems content to get me to the water, but I can’t figure out if he’s got someplace he wants to go too. What about Hector? He seems… well, you seem to get along with him better.”
“Oh, well, I’m not sure. Everything has been happening pretty fast. He’s nicer than he acts though. I mean around Soma he’s more… rough, I guess. Sometimes I’m not sure if they’re friends still or not…”
Lorelai nodded, her tail twitched a little,”I know what you mean. Anyway, if you’re done maybe we should get dressed and check on them. We probably don’t want to stay here too long. Once Soma wakes up we’ll need to figure out where to go next. And I’d rather not have us split up again.”
The two got dried off and dressed, Lorelai pickin a skirt to wear and Solana going for some more practical looking pants. Once they were dressed they went back to see how Soma and Hector were doing, with Lorelai asking before she even walked into the room,”Is he doing better?”
Soma struggled in his coma waves of memories distant and forgotten all seemed to wash up on him like waves from a hurricane. He struggled again his body heated up. All he had to do was sweat whatever was causing his body problems, but it wasn't that easy he knew it there was no sweating this wave of gene rejection. He was running from the lab again he looked around it was in utter chaos running away he looked up in the sky a helicopter was following him. They were already tracking him it meant that this wasn't some random raid it was probably to cover up the murder of him and his group. He wouldn't forget this. He grumbled to himself looking at the tree he ran for it jumping into the trees he grabbed a branch and launched himself into the air. He grabbed onto the rails hoping his weight would throw them off. Which it did as it came crashing down Soma realized he didn't have a plan for landing he thought about it last minute and shot flames out of his fist overloading his body with heat the hot air was enough to sort of pad his landing as he skid forward he felt like his arm was going to rip out of it's socket as he hit the ground skidding like a skipping stone. Soma went to check the wreckage there wasn't an explosion or fire yet. The pilot laid unconscious He checked her id and then patted her on the head. "You did good." He pulled her out and then punched the fuel tank of the helicopter there was a loud explosion the flame consumed him his body adjusted to the fire. Suddenly something pierced him. He looked down and it was the woman she had stabbed him with a needle or something he felt the warmth surge thru him it was too late to react. Another heli was coming and it was hot on his trail as he pulled the needle out he ran thinking quick he made a mirage copy of himself his body was already hot and was starting to heat up even more. Suddenly he felt weak and out of the tree line came more people. He sighed as they tried to attack him. He had to keep his cool. Using his heat he cloaked himself in hot air. that's when it went wrong his body output was hard to control instead of just the air he heated everyone around him causing them to combust. Soma was trying to get it under control but it kept getting hotter and hotter. This was probably a test strand to also cover things up to exploit his heat gene. He had saw a village not far from where he was He tried to cloak this time succeeding as he walked towards the village all his previous wounds that his body had healed suddenly came back he limped down the hill towards the village falling down mid way as his legs gave way. The last thing he remembered before falling to darkness was him seeing a face and making a comment. everything else was autopilot.
He saw thru the haze Hector's face and behind him were the girls. His body felt hotter by the moment he didn't know how much more he could take. He felt someone lay their hands on him then felt it taken away. He figured it was one of the girls if he wasn't so injured he would have told them to stay back not to waste energy on him they should be finding out more about the area or gathering supplies not gathering like flies around shit. He felt Hector punch him he guessed Hector was trying to get him to wake up but he couldn't help but feel like some of it was just him venting. Yup def venting as he felt Hector launch a foot into his stomach. his body reacted to the kick as his arms flailed.
Lorelai looked upset, but didn’t keep trying to go to Soma. She just looked at him with a worried frown,”Fine. Let me know when he wakes up, okay?”
Solana took Lorelai by the arm gently,”I’m sure he’ll be fine. Let me come with you. I was almost wondering if they had any clothes around here we might be able to wear…”
It would hopefully distract Lorelai while they waited. The girls both wandered off together to go look and see if any suitable clothes had been left behind in the mess, and to let Lorelai soak and relax for a little while. As the only healer in their little group it would be important to keep her in good shape. Their lives may end up relying on Lorelai having enough energy to save them, and Solana knew that. She sort of wished she could heal like Lorelai could, she’d have preferred a power like that instead of the one she had.
"There's nothing we can do for him. You already did enough just let him sweat it off or whatever. I hate to say that but what else are we suppose to do he continues to hurt himself and that's going to hurt us cause he's a critical part of this team as much as I hate to say it it's the truth." He wasn't too happy he pulled Lorelai away from Soma. "Listen you and fire don't mix. Stay away from Soma for the time being till we get this figured out. I promise you we will figure something out in the mean time why not soak and sleep." He tried to get close to Soma but the heat was making it hard it felt like the high point of noon heat was on them. "Soma seems to have a vast amount of knowledge he always has, but he has this stupid complex about him that he needs to piss down peoples throats and piss them off. He is so stubborn too, but i guess you can say he's never one for rules and does what he wants only cause he has the power to carry things out and smarts to back it up."
Lorelai tried to rest while she could. She was woken up by Hector pulling her away from Soma, who seemed to be having some sort of nightmare. Solana looked worried, and was quick to back away. Lorelai at first was confused and still sleepy, she’d actually managed to sleep for some time, though she wasn’t sure how long.
Then she tried to break away from Hector,”What’s wrong with him? We need to wake him up. Soma, wake up! It’s a bad dream.”
She wasn’t sure what she’d do, she was especially weak against heat and fire, and she’d already healed him, but she didn’t want him to be suffering like that.
Soma Laid there His chest barely moving as he felt energy moving thru his body again like before. He must be getting healed. He couldn't wake up even though he was trying to will his body to forcefully wake up. He drifted into the dark abyss as he floated there he could make out a figure it was female. He tired floating closer but she kept her distance. Soma tried to use his feet to try to run but he just spun forward flipping in place. As he flipped in place the figure slowly faded and a bright blinding light replaced her. He sighed suddenly he felt hot again. But this time he was strapped in to a chair a female with no features laid next to him the people around him had no faces either. Soma was let out, but for some reason it felt weird like he knew this place. The heat seemed to be raising in the room. but over a speaker he could only make out "Ice the box test subject 102 is exceeding limits." He felt a pain on his back shoulders where the shoulder blades were. as if something was crawling from his back up to his shoulder blades something was trying to get out he felt an intense pain. Scream both in and out of the dream Soma outside the dream body temperature began to shoot up the room started to get hotter. The flames around the house began to fade slowly. The heat wave seemed stronger now. In the dream Soma struggled to keep awake. Was this how he was going to die is all he could think it filled his entire being. The thing that was causing him pain suddenly burst thru his back it was wings. But there were no feathers it was just bone mass or something that looked close to it. A scientist came over and started to use something tapping it. It sent pain straight thru Soma. He screamed tears streaming down his face. The scientist noted this and then grabbed a bone saw and started to rake it across the bone formation. As the tip came off Soma finally passed out. He couldn't take anymore of this pain. AS the tip came off the rest of the bone fell off at the slightest touch it became a powdery dust. suddenly the heat from around Soma died. Soma was now quiet outside the dream, but there was two small bone shard looking things sticking out of the back. He burst into flames suddenly the flames were bright blue and had heat to them. Hector pulled Solana and Lorelai away from Soma as He burst into flames completely engulfing him as he flailed on the floored. In his dream the dust ignited as he was engulfed in flames the flames gathered around where the bone shards were on his back he suddenly had wings of flames and his body was engulfed suddenly fine but had it's own heat felt like heat from a forge. As Soma grabbed the one scientist that had hurt him the man burst into flames Soma snapped his fingers and the flames disappeared the man was charred to the bone. Scientist were taking notes or trying to as their pen's eploded ink all over the place for those that had metal pens while those who had plastic casing pens melted onto the clip board. Soma looked over to the female body and picked her up Sorrow filled his mind then rage took over. He kissed her forehead as he placed her back down he bowed his head and closed his eyes trying to fight tears. He felt his heart breaking into a million pieces. He had finally found someone he could trust and was close to. AS he opened his eyes he snapped his fingers and his wings turned back to dust he fanned the dust around the room and people started coughing this time Soma didn't snap his fingers instead he pointed a finger "Bang." Suddenly the person he pointed to collapsed holding his chest Soma had put the dust in their lungs and ignited it.
Solana nodded,”That sounds good. Looks like you found a lot. We can sort through it later maybe, if there’s time.”
Lorelai nodded, watching the TC rather intently. She was hoping it would tell her more about Soma. Then she heard Soma in person and turned quickly. While Solana just looked worried Lorelai rushed forward to Soma. “I’ll heal him.”
He felt hot to the touch, but Lorelai held onto him anyway, pouring her energy into healing him. She wasn’t paying much attention to anything else. She didn’t care much about the appearance of flames around the house.
Solana did care about the flames, at first she looked afraid,”How? We should get out of here.” But Hector didn’t seem worried after a moment, so Solana looked puzzled. It seemed like he didn’t think they were in danger, and come to think of it she wasn’t noticing the flames being hot. “I… guess. At least we’re all here.”
Lorelai sat down, looking tired after healing Soma,”He’s fine. Needs some rest. So do I. Probably a bath too.”
"This thing is called a tv apparently. I shows moving live images like a video feed. It also talks it called itself a tv. I wouldn't know what it is cause I've lived where there was no technology. Maybe Soma would know, but it looks like Soma is causing more trouble somewhere." Suddenly Hector could hear off in the distances a helicopter. His ears twitched. "Oh i found some supplies there was a bunch of containers with food inside I would assume so since they were in a larger box that produced cold." He pointed towards a large back he had filled with supplies. The explosions seemed to now be getting closer. Hector had a bad feeling about the sounds. The Helicopters zoomed past them Hector was waiting for some kind of trouble to show up but it didn't the whole time that few seconds felt like forever. "Hey am I late for the topple wear party." Hector jumped it was Soma, but on the tv it showed the helicopters chasing Soma still or at least someone that looked close. Soma was drenched in blood and he looked tired Soma collapsed onto the floor. His body feeling heavy he closed his eyes and fell forward. Hector without a second thought caught him not letting him hit the floor. Hector looked over to the both of the girls. "Hey can I get some help. I'm no doctor but I think he needs some medical attention." Suddenly jumping back Hector hissed as it seemed like flames were engulfing the house, but he didn't feel any heat coming from the flames instead it was heat from Soma that he felt. It took him a while to figure out what was going on. It started to click in his head even if he wasn't smart it didn't take him long to connect the dots. Soma had basically did what deserts do with mirages and the heat. Soma's breathing was ragged even if he was passed out. It seemed like Despite being stuck in a lab every second of his life he knew what was going on and was several steps ahead. Hector looked at them. "Well I guess this answers our question. Doesn't It."
“Sure, I’ll keep an eye on her. Be careful, okay?” Solana agreed, a little worried for Hector despite the way the area seemed abandoned. There could still be something dangerous out there.
Solana returned to the tub where Lorelai was still soaking. She seemed to be doing much better now that she had some clean water. “Feeling better? You look better.”
Lorelai nodded,”Yeah. The water really helps. I should get out soon though, help you both out. Do you think… do you think Soma will catch up to us here?”
Solana smiled. Lorelai was clearly worried about Soma, and while she didn’t know what they would do she tried to be reassuring,”He might. I’m sure he’ll catch up sooner or later though, even if it’s not right here. It’ll be fine.”
Lorelai nodded, and Solana got out a towel. Lorelai got out with a little help and tried to dry off a bit so at least she wasn’t dripping through the house. The girls both wandered back to the main room where they could sit down fairly comfortably. Lorelai tilted her head and looked at Solana,”So, Hector is your partner. What do you think of him?”
“Huh? Oh, I, um… What do you mean?”
Before Lorelai could clarify or press for more Hector showed up carrying stuff, including a box. Lorelai just watched with a slight frown, while Solana wandered over to take a closer look. When Hector got it working again Lorelai leaned forward,”What… Where is that? How…?”
Solana looked at Hector, a little puzzled but hoping he had some idea,”What’s it for? And… any sign of Soma?” She didn’t want to mention how worried Lorelai was for him, Solana figured that might be embarrassing, but Lorelai would want to know. And she did, the way she looked over attentively when Solana asked about Soma.
"You never know. We'll have to look maybe post guard while one of us walks checking the houses near by. Since we don't know when and if Soma can find us I don't think we have to worry about him but it would be alot easier then to leave her partnerless. From the looks of it I couldn't tell you when night will hit." Another explosion and a bunch of screams went off didn't sound too close so he figured they were on a path. "I say we figure out a method for time keeping since there are no clocks or anything for time read out. You watch her while I'll go and search for some food and supplies maybe get a bearing on what's going on." Hector Walked to the front of the door looking out. He had no way of telling if it was safe, but he went out running over to a house a bit aways that wasn't burning and he rummaged around. He found a bag that had someones name stitched into it. He used his claw to cut the stitching as he looked around for food and medical supplies. He couldn't figure out a way he could keep loreial from being a hinderance. He thought about it when out the corner of his eye he spotted something. It was a solar powered clock. he put it in the bag after he went thru the fridge. i guess this is as good as it'll be. it was yogurt and some boxed up stuff. He looked at a box that had pictures flashing on it he wasn't familiar with what it was he touched it and it spoke saying there was a invasion going on to run while you could. saying an escaped fugative had gone on a rampage. it was a live vid fed of Soma attacking some men. Soma seemed covered in blood but it wasn't his. from the look on his face he was tired. What was this strange object the box seemed to sense his question sort of. "Please reframe from leaving your homes unless a team comes to pick you up. Stay tuned to your tvs for more information." Looking at the box he saw a cord going into the wall two cords at that one of them looked like it was what they had for camera feeds so he left that one alone and he pulled the one attached to the back and carried it with him heading back over to the house with Solana and Loreial. He put the box down and plugged it in turning it on as he did the screen was blank did he do something wrong. He looked around and saw the same cable from the other house here. Hooking it up fairly quickly he pushed a button and changed the channel it was another station this time it was an view from the sky.

It was clear Lorelai wasn’t feeling well, she was trying to suppress her coughing, but the smoke wasn’t good for her. Solana nodded,”We can try that. Come on.”
Lorelai had to lean on Solana a bit as they followed Hector. As they ran Solana tried to get a look at their surroundings. There were a few houses around, hopefully no one had stuck around with everything happening.
It seemed like that was the case, at least with the house Hector led them to. Solana helped Lorelai into the house and into the tub Hector filled for her. She was visibly amazed to see Lorelai’s legs turn to a fin once she was in the water. Lorelai sighed and relaxed into the water,”Hopefully Soma catches up by then.”
Solana gave a slightly worried smile,”Yeah. You just rest while you can. Hector, how long do you think until it’s dark out? Is there anything we should do to prepare? I’m not sure how far until we’ll come by someplace like this again.” She was a little concerned about things like food, water, and clothes, as well as the means to carry supplies around,”Think there are any bags or backpacks around?”
"Just hang in there a little longer. Not much we can do I'm sure they have the main roads closed off and he side routes are also being closed off. If we only had another Soma to distract or create a hole for us again maybe we could get somewhere safe." Like as if on cue there was a large explosion and then the sound of stuff flying thru the air. People were screaming. That is never a good sign specially with knowing Soma. "Maybe we can find a house with plumbing and fill a tub with water for her. We are close to a housing facility for families of people who work here, but what are the chances that they aren't already occupied. oh well guess we have no choice but to venture out." Getting up Hector looked out the door. It was empty and he couldn't sense anyone around. he waved for the girls to follow him as he ran for a house that was still in tact but looked like it had been raided. things were on the floor. Hector checked inside and saw it was empty. He gave them the thumbs up and drew a tub full of water. "Here you go you should be good to go. We'll just rest here for a bit, but not too long we don't want to get caught. I think it'll be safe to move under the cover of night."

She hurried with Hector, her heart pounding. They needed to get away.
Lorelai was a little more reluctant to run, but did follow along,”He better catch up.”
Solana was pretty intrigued by the forest they ran into. “Oh wow. This place is interesting…” She looked at Hector and gave a reassuring smile,”I’m sure it will be fine.”
Both of the girls watched Hector scramble up the tree. Lorelai was looking back where they’d come from looking worried. Solana patted her arm,”You heard Hector, he’ll catch up.”
Lorelai nodded,”Yeah. Just wish it’d be soon.”
When Hector came down he looked worried and Solana knew there was trouble. They had to hide a lot sooner than she’d hoped. The girls followed him to the smoking shelter. Luckily the fires were just about out, but Lorelai was already starting to look a little pale from the heat and smoke once they were inside. Solana kept close to her and put a hand on her shoulder. She wasn’t sure what else to do to help the other girl.
