Okay, run mutant boy run.. for once in my life I was thankful for being on the run, okay so Nate took off with Nati before me.. friggin wings took of with the kid.. some ass shot him and he had painfully came down, of course I watched this all from behind.. I tackled the guy shotting at my friend.. useless? Hell Nate and Nati would be dead if not for me.. instead some hulk like mutant from the SHA (sub-human army a branch of subs that work for the goverment in hopes to live.. instead there killing off other subs and will be whipped out later.. so there only killing themselves) Okay.. so I hit him on the back of a neck on a presure point Artemis showed me whilse he was shooting at them and not noticing me. But hey I take them how I can.
A tap on my sholder made me jump and I heard a familiar snort "You saved nate way to go man!" she pulled out her fist and I flinched.. how come I have to be the punnching bag for her? Instead she held her hand, with dried blood on the back of her hand, still long enough to tap knuckles her largest sighn of affection (unless your Levi)
"we have to use the subhumans we found in canada now.. it's time we all come out of hidding.. I know they only want to be safe.. but we need an army.. Nate is going there to get any sub willing to fight, Nati knows the terrain..
"And let me guess I'm the lucky idiot who stays here to help you with the death mission?"
She grinned fuly recovered "That you are.. Look.. I can call my brother he's our only hope.. I know.. He isn't lost.. just brain washed."
Her brother? "No offence Sir, but erm? Wasn't Alex fighting for his dad the president, I mean he helped take Arty!" oops my hair was turning from purple to red and had already growna good two inches.
"Yeah, I know but he still knows right and wrong. And he has never directly hurt any of us.."
I cut her off "Not directly he just put the guns in their hands and stood back in every fight.."
"MALCOM DAMMIT!!" she reached her hands out like she was about to strangle me but didn't. "Were out of options.. and i won't leave Artemis.. This is my fault.. i was the one to let Le..." she hesitated "Levi" no one had dared to say his name around her since her 'escape' slash rescue movment where Levi had accidently turned of the motion censored alarms.. but he still fucking shot at us.. and Skyth had hoped he might still really be on our side because he had helped us escape.. but now I see it's a trap for Artemis.
They had what they needed from Skyth.. and knew she would lead them to go get the sub-humans in Canada (though they don't know about canada as far as we know) but instead Nate was, so it was an unintended trade on our part Artemis for Skyth.. hell if I survive this I'm writting a biography about all this and making millions! Oh maybe they'll make a movie! yeah.. right.. not gonna happen.. suicide mission...
"He'd understand if we left him.. he's tottaly willing to die for the cause..."
"Malcome dammit, He went in for me and I'm going in for him got it?" she snapped blue eyes cutting me down. "We're a team.. And I'm in charge of all yall!"
"You like Arty!" I sang.. "Skyth and Arty sittin.." she kicked me in the tender spot.. "ow.. I think he ikes you but hey Nates open too now that you and what's his face are over."
She sighed not even hitting me "Shuddup.. I don't need comic relief.. I need a plan.. I need you to fight.. were getting him out of there just the two of us.."
We watched the building carfully, the same one Skyth was held in. About tweenty cars were parked in the lot next to it it was a tall building with no name. It was impossible to see in and only guys in three piece suits came in or out.
"Has a police car ever came over here before?" I watched the cop car pull up followed by an ambulance.
"No.." she watched carfully "Never.. not theat I watch this place often.."
"Next time I want to go to Canada and bird for brains can stay.."
"When you can fly fine.." she whispered back, why was she whispering? we were looking at the building from the park bench to the cultural history museum building across the street.
"Well I give up, poor Artemis I knew theee well, I myself will never forget how he.Hey.. ow!" I rubbed my new bruise newly delivered from Skyth.
