Knocking Hector out Soma tossed Hector at an guard that was heading towards the two girls. Picking Hector Soma throw Hector at Lorelai as he did Soma pounded his fist into the ground and created a gap between them and him. Hector woke up seconds after finally back to his senses. "Wh-hat is he doing?" Soma didn't answer he waved as he pour more of whatever he was into the ground causing it to quake even more as parts of the ground near hector's feet began to crumble without a second to waste he lead them away. "This wasn't part of the plan when we originally talked about it he said he wanted to do it my way but in the end he just did whatever it was that he wanted. We have to go I'm sure He'll catch up or something, but we do have to leave right away." Hector took their hands and lead them into the dense forest avoiding the main road. "I don't know what we'll do but I'm sure we can find an old sub station or place to rest for the day and recoup." He wasn't sure what to do at this point. For some reason freedom felt wrong. He had a million questions and no answers. "I don't know why but it just doesn't feel free like I felt more free being in that lab having everything decided for me. At least I was safe or so I thought. Soma has always been the thinker even though he likes to talk with his fist he was clever. I just happen to get by cause I can deal with people he can't. You saw how he reacts to everyone. I'm sure at some point he was a decent being." Hector held up a hand for them to stop. He jumped into a tree climbing to the top he scoped out several parties searching for them. "Damn it." Climbing down he had to think quickly figure out what they were going to do. He saw several smoking building. We should hide in there they already checked we just have to bear with the smoldering buildings for the time being.

She was eager to get out and make an escape though. Lorelai waited somewhat anxiously while Soma was away.
Solana was pretty nervous, and held onto Hector’s hand tightly. She wasn’t willing to stay behind, but the idea of escaping scared her a bit too. She let go when Hector did, and watched in surprise as he attacked the people who came in.
Both of them kept a safe distance from the two fighting. They were aware they would only get in the way. Lorelai noticed that the two of them worked pretty well together, despite all the bickering.
“It’s not a forcefield.” Solana mumbled, but she complied anyway. She made a wall around her and Lorelai that would slam anything that came at them into the ground. She could do some fairly precise manipulation of gravity, which tended to make her power look like other things.
Lorelai started to move toward Soma, worried about him. Solana stopped her by grabbing her arm,”Come on. We better move. It’ll be fine. I’m sure. They’ll be right behind us.”
Solana sounded a little worried, but Lorelai nodded,”Right. Soma, you better come or I’ll come back and drag you out.”
Lorelai kept close to Solana as the two of them made their way out. Solana waited until she had a clear path before moving forward. While she was capable enough of clearing some of the way herself, it would mean sacrificing the defensive barrier keeping them safe from any stray projectiles. She guessed Lorelai was a healer, so she probably didn’t have much ability to defend herself. Besides that, Solana wasn’t very eager to join in the fighting if she didn’t have to.
"One way or another You 3 are going to get out of here even if I have to bring this whole world down. I was fine with being some toy for a while I had assumed that was my purpose. I assume I had no purpose other then to be toyed with, now that I think back I was put here for a reason. As nuts as this sounds I was incomplete before till I had a partner. I know this is crazy and probably the adrenaline talking but I swear I'll get us out of here." With that the building shook again. No one was going to come in to this room he knew no one from the center wanted to deal with Soma let alone damage Hector there were probably a few others that both sides wanted to keep. Guess from the talk Soma was wearing thin on everyone's nerves and it had become apparently it was his time to escape. "Hector I hate to ask you to do this, let's go with your plan for once and do plan C." With that Soma vanished running thru the door. "GOD DAMN IT SOMA THIS ISN'T OVER YET." Getting up Hector grabbed both of their hands and then waited his hands were soaked in sweat. He held his breath trying to get a better count of the explosions. Plan C was the least likey to work even for Soma. "I'll explain later. He looked at them before he went back to holding his breath counting again. Each second was in sync with his heart now he had slowed it to a pace. His body went from its normal tan to just plain white like he had seen a ghost. An alarm went off from around Hector a team came running in with a stretcher. releasing the girls Hector fell to the ground as he did. He willed his body to shut down into a state of statis like the one Soma had told him about. everything seemed to slow down as he let go of the girls his Feral side took over an instict from the previous animal that was used. He twisted in mid air and clawed at the unit coming in as he shredded thru them bouncing off the wall he cleared the hall way. Soma knocked on the window that was suppose to be there suddenly the wall melted and a human size hole was made. Outside powers and gun fire could be heard. It was pure chaos. Soma smiled and guns were pointed at him but before anyone could move Hector had bounced ontop of Soma Soma launched him and the two of them were in a flurry of fist and claw working together each covering the others weak stop. It wasn't them working together Soma worked best when nothing worked. Dodging both gun fire and Hector meanwhile maintaining focus to make sure everyone was alright. Looking towards the two girls. "Do your forcefield thing minimum output to protect you two while you move we'll clear a path for you girls to run and we'll follow shortly." suddenly soma took a claw slash or three to his back as he nearly missed dodging Hectors movements. Soma was determined to see these girls get out.

She didn’t say anything, but put her hand over her cheek. It stung, but she didn’t want to give the guy any satisfaction. She just glared at him.
Then there was the gunshot. Lorelai flinched. He kept going, the soldier intended to kill them all. Lorelai just had time to clench her fists and wondered how they were going to get out of this mess when Soma took care of it.
Solana’s eyes had widened when the gun was turned at her. She’d just frozen up when he started firing, and didn’t move until the soldier was already on fire. Solana flinched and finally reacted to minimize the damage then. It was like there was a barrier between the soldier and them, at a specific line anything flying at them just slammed into the ground. She’d made an area of intensely strong gravity there as a type of shield.
While she held that spot Solana backed to where Hector was and knelt down,”How bad is it?”
Lorelai went to Soma once she figured this part was over and took his hand in hers,”Here, let me get this. Something tells me this isn’t over yet, is it?” She set about healing him, and without looking up asked,”Are we getting out of here?”
"You're over thinking it. It's simple there won't be any fight. They most likely came looking to hawk a few people if they can't hawk them then they'll do the next best thing and murder everyone it's a good thing we are all in here and not in any of the other rooms. You see Lore this is the main room in which they run alot of test and observe. I think no I know soldier boy here will puss out at the last moment if they swarm this room." The soldier didn't look amused it looked like he wanted to smack Soma, but instead he hit Lore instead and grinned as he walked away. "You know I don't care if you hurt me but you been picking on all the wrong people I'm quite frankly at the end of my..." As Soma got his fist clenched he was about to hit the guy in the back Hector stopped him. "Come on Dude cut him a break." The soldier saw this attack and took a shot shooting thru Hector's shoulder and into Soma's fist Soma kept his fist clenched grabbing Hector as he fell. The bullet hurt as he moved his arm to hold up Hector. "You could have been a better bullet sponge there." Soma got up despite Hector trying to hold him down. as he got up another gun shoot was heard the solider Popped another bullet into Soma this time it was his leg and another shoot this time it was Hector who got shoot. "Well looks like we may have lost 4 test subjects it's a shame really. You guys fought to protect me and this center but alast you guys finally met your end." AS the soldier aimed his gun at Solana Soma punched the ground and suddenly the man was engulfed in a bright flame. The soldier screamed as his gun went off bullets flying and exploding.

The way they talked to Soma and treated him really irritated Lorelai. She crossed her arms, frustrated but trusting Soma to handle himself. Besides, despite her affinity with water and her tail, she was really more a healer than anything. She wasn’t a fighter, that was what Soma specialized in. Get down? Lorelai frowned slightly, looking puzzled, but didn’t question him. There was some bang, probably an explosion of some kind, just when she started to duck toward the ground. She flinched.
“Is that really an invasion, do you think?” She asked Soma, looking up at him. If it was, then she wondered what that meant for them. Were they expected to fight and defend this stupid place?
"It could be worse. I think Poor Hector over there is in quiet some pain seeing as how they grabbed his tail. It's like a second penis for him so to speak." Hector Eyed Soma wishing he'd go back to just being silent. "Dude shut up before you do you and make things worse. You always do this once you open your mouth all that comes out is words that get me fucked over so can we not." Soma raised a brow and had a look of that of like a cat that knows it's causing problems and is getting joy from it. The man shooed the solider with Hector to take him back. "You know it would have been so much easier for you to let us kill you and give your partner here someone who deserves her talent. Soma what ever are we going to do with you?" "Well for starters you could let me and her go or you could run some of your little test and actually be useful to the front." The man smacked Soma. Soma laughed "Didn't know you had daddy issues but sure ok I can see i hit a spot." Soma was counting in his head he could sense others outside the wall. "So if you would get down Lore it's about to get dicy." As if on cue there was an explosion in another room. The alarm went off. "Looks like the invading forces wondered onto your little campus. Better hurry and focus on them." The man seemed conflicted he got up and ran out the door but not before posting the solider who had smacked Soma.
When they came to take Hector Solana hurried after them. Lorelai could tell something was up, and didn’t want to get left alone so the climbed out of the tub and followed, dripping wet.
Solana didn’t really like them threatening Hector. He hadn’t even done anything, but it was apparently because he knew Soma. Pulling him by the tail clearly hurt. Solana went past the soldiers to get to him,”Are you alright?”
Lorelai followed in last. She saw Soma’s lip bleeding. He wanted to behave, hopefully that meant they would stop attacking for now. Lorelai eyed the soldiers before deciding to walk past them to Soma,”So here you are. That looks like it hurts, you know.”
Soma walked slowly into the room putting his hands behind his head. He had at least cleared the room of anyone of importance. He would take the blame for the entire mess. He sat there on his feets as he waited. They probably weren't going to rush in anytime soon, but they were going to capture him. Closing his eyes he started to think about the past for some reason it flashed before his eyes everything that had happened up to this point. He always rolled with the punches no matter how hard it was. First he had faith that the system was going to take care of him but that was a lie he found out first hand once he did try to make the lab his home. They moved him to a testing field. That's when he found out something that doomed him to fight for freedom, but he was selfish about it left anyone teamed up with him in the dust. It wasn't his fault but he started to think it was he either used them up or wasn't good enough to protect them. He shouldn't beat himself up over it there was no point anymore what was done was done so he thought he couldn't fight the feeling that his acts were the real cause of lose. He got a taste of what it was like to be free that there was more to outside then just some war torn place the image was burnt into his brain. A empath he unfortunately had to kill showed him images of lands from before and after that there were patches of land that weren't soaked with blood. Tears ran down his cheek as suddenly a group of soldiers surrounded him flashlights aimed directly at his face. "Welp so much for peace huh?" One of the soldiers smacked him with the butt of his rifle busting Soma's lip open. He laughed. "Ohh I'm guessing this is the part where you tell me to come quietly or you'll harm the girl cause you know threatening me won't work oh oh I know you're going to tell me how i cost you millions. Well that's what you fucking get for trying to beat a dog with a newspaper the thing about that is you don't cause they will attack or whimper and from my track history you should have seen that much yourself. I advise you to chose your words correctly otherwise I'm might have to melt this whole place down. I'm not too scared of dying again. Not that I died but i came close. So what will it be another one of your test or are you going to send up to the inner circle like you were suppose to about 4 hours ago." The man who stepped forward was about to say something but stopped. "Fine." He walked off and went into Hectors room grabbing Hector by the tail he dragged him into the room. Hector swore alot. He saw Soma and sighed. "How about this you play nice or we will put Hector in your place for battle test. We would hate to lose such a valuable test subject what with all the breakthroughs we had would be a sad day if something were to happen. Soma sighed and raised his hands. "Well I came here to the room to say you guys win i'm ready to behave."

She wasn’t sure what was going on, but she recognized Lorelai and Soma from before. She wondered why they were here and what was going on outside, but didn’t dare go take a look.
Lorelai followed Soma’s directions without question or hesitation. There was a trust there, trust that he knew what he was doing and would protect her. She nodded to him,”Sure, I’ll wait here for you.”
She expected him to come back. She also expected to heal him when he did. While he left Lorelai climbed into the tub, the cool clean water soothing. It was probably the nicest thing since their room had been wrecked. She sort of liked the change in the room too. Didn’t feel like a lab as much.
Solana approached the tub, interested in Lorelai’s transformation. Then saw Hector with the fire from the door and went to him to see if he was alright. She winced at the screams. Whatever was going on was awful.
Lorelai hummed in a non committal way, leaned on the edge of the tub,”He is pretty interesting. Are you burned? And do you know why everything is going so… nuts?”
Solana shook her head,”I’m not sure, but… you’re a healer? The tail…”
Lorelai smirked slightly, lifting her tail behind her partly out of the water,”I know, right? Natural double mutation. They were [i very] interested in studying me in isolation for a while, probably to try and replicate it to cram more powers into people without killing them.”
Several explosions shook the ground and then the door flew open more accurately the door was blown off it's hinges the door flying past the two of them. Hector jumped and hiss at the loud sound. There after the smoke settled stood Soma and the other girl it seemed Soma had a head start on causing problem. Hector noticed that Soma was bleeding but also he was covered in blood that could mean only one thing that it had already started this wasn't even a testing facility some why lose test subjects this early. Looking over to Solana he took her hand and lead her into the far back of the room as Soma entered so did several other guards. Soma picked them off knocking them out cold. He walked over to Hector and Solana He kept an eye on both the girl and Him. "What is it this time Soma are you going to tell me you have another grand scheme to get out of here?" Soma shook his head "No. But I do have plans just i need a room that isn't messed up. Feeling the wall he pushed something and a control panel came up he began typing. Motioning for Loreali to come over to him He started tapping the screen as he finished the alarms stopped and a tank appeared in the room. "Here Lore you can stay here I need to go back to our room." Hector was confused as to what was going on but suddenly the tank started to fill itself with water and the room changed slowly to something of what outside looked like. Some say Soma was among the first wave of children snatched up that people he killed were actually first waves he wasn't sure the stories were true but the room shifted from a lab looking room to something of a regular bedroom. Hector watched Soma limp off. A gun was heard as it echoed thru the Hall. Then a scream as a heat wave filled the hall pictures on the wall began to catch fire. Hector quickly closed the door as a flash of fire licked up under the door. Hector jump back patting himself he felt like he was on fire. On the other side of the door screams filled the hall as people on the other side burnt alive the fans turnt on trying to mask the smell of burning flesh even if they took care of the smell the problem was the screams they were nothing like he'd ever heard before and he was around Soma alot but this was something new what had they done to push Soma this far. He looked over to the girl and realized they must have tried to kill her. He sighed and waited for the alarms to resound which they did. "I guess we have no choice but to stay. I think they went to fair and tried to kill her." He pointed at Loreali. "You don't kill healers not at least when Soma is around he's got a fucked up code he will let you use your powers on him once he determines the scope and danger of your ability he decides what he will do with you. He tries not to kill but if you are put in a life or death situation you have to think of yourself and your partner."

Clearly something was happening, but no one would tell them anything regardless. Then things were silent. Whatever it was, it was over now. The sounds didn’t start up again. Solana tried to relax and get some sleep. Whatever tests or things they planned for her later, she might as well get some sleep.
Just when she was starting to really relax there was an alarm and sudden noises again. Solana stood up and looked at Hector, clearly worried,”What do we do now? We stay… right?”
The announcement said to stay, but she was uncertain about that. The noises sounded pretty close, so it might be dangerous to stay here. Whatever was going on, Hector clearly had a better idea of things here than she did.
Hector jumped up instantly. Not even a few minutes had passed and things were already loud. More explosions then nothing He assumed it was Soma they were already trying to break him. The silence could mean one of two things but he doubted that Soma was defeated. They just wanted to test the water with Soma which was a really bad benchmark to have to being with. They really did underestimate all the time that was put into Soma. He wondered now was it the same for him. Does anyone feel like he was worth the effort. they must have for them to keep testing on him or maybe they just feel like that's all he's worth is test. He was deeply pondering these matters. When the alarm sounded Hector snapped back to the room looking around he was confused. A voice yelling on the loud speaker saying to remain in the rooms. Suddenly once again there was loud noises coming from outside the door.

He seemed to know where he was going, but she could tell he was exhausted. Lorelai nodded. Her legs had shifted into a tail. He was too tired, so she would have to manage the rest,”It’s alright. I’ll figure it out. You just relax for now. This is the part where I’m useful.”
Lorelai got to work. The water, despite not being especially pure anymore, did give her some strength. She gathered some and put it over his eyes, then set about trying to heal what was damaged. It was easier with the help of some water, but at the end of it she still felt drained. She kept her hands on his cheeks for a moment and leaned her forehead against his. She really hoped this worked.
Before going to sleep she checked him for any other injuries and healed what she found, no matter how minor. With her work done, and barely able to stay awake, she curled up next to him and drifted off to sleep.
Without missing a beat Soma got up instantly and picked up Lorelai. Walking in the general direction of where he remember the location was Soma legs gave out he was to exhausted from using his powers it wasn't the first time but it'd been a while since he used them in the way he did. He was also tired to he attributed his current state to fatigue. Soma was careful at least when he put her down into the tank. There was still enough water in the tank to swim around. "Welp I leave everything else into your capable hands I believe in you we can sleep together in the same water. My problem is I'll prune and maybe need a change of clothes. I don't think I'll get much in the way of privileges anymore.I apologize in advance for what is about to come after today." He closed his eyes and started to drift off to sleep leaning against the tank he slide down hugging the glass. Soma curled up and just fell asleep.
