Sabien entered a building adn put Xan down, he grabbed Jason's arm and yanked him away. Saien guessed Xan knew her body and mutation bette rthan he did, if she siad move, then they should really get out of here. He'd be back though, eh didn't want to leave someone this powerful to wander around without him eing able to know where she was.
Jason stumbled along with Sabien as the guy yanked him away from the building. “Whoa, what’s going on?” he asked, breaking free to walk and run on his own. “I’m totally lost here.”
As Sabien and Jason fled, she couldn’t suppress it much longer. The girl who had merged with her mind so many years ago was finally taking over. The one who really is insane. The one who caused Xan’s body to attack itself. Within the next minute, Xanthe was no longer in control. She was in the recessive state. Quinn was the dominate one now. Her hair gained a red streak, in addition to the white, to show the transformation. The wounds faded away. Quinn rose and walked out of the building with a smirk.
Sabien yanked Jason into a side door and shut in quietly,
"She's a mutant, a double person." he exapliend quietly, his voice still cold, "Her otehr person is in control now." he finished, his voice never seemed to change pitch and was monotone unless he was angry.
Jason looked at Sabien, his shocked expression showing despite his training. “And I suppose that’s normal for you Xperime’s or something?” he barely whispered.
Quinn looked around with a crazed, high pitched laugh. It was what you’d imagine in an asylum. Naturally. “Hahahaha… Xanthe may be too afraid to touch the guards…But I’m not. Why don’t you show yourself? Are you too afraid of the little asylum patient? Hahahahahahaha!” She looked at the ground irritably. “XANTHE! Shut it, will you? I can’t hear my brilliant schemes with you nagging me. I don’t care! I don’t care! Don’t make me level this place. I can! Grr… Don’t you dare underestimate the great Quinn-dalia!”
"Yeah, I suggest shutting up now." Sabien said. He listened to this 'other Xan' QUinn or something like that yell. HE didn't respond, he didn't exactly want to take on another asylum patient, not after what had happened to that patient last him he'd fought one, it hadn't been pretty.
After hearing the new chick, Jason quickly listened and snapped his mouth shut. He was completely fine hiding from the crazy.
Quinn growled. “Oh Mr. Guard… I’ll find you. You should just come out now. I want to rip you to shreds—it would make my day. Xanthe—c’mon. Lend me your power. It’s so much more painful than mine. What? How dare you! I use my power on you all the time, and you won’t let me use yours to hurt him? But he’s a guard! It doesn’t matter, he’s a guard! C’mon, at least bring up a painful memory or something. Why are you so stupid! You could’ve killed everyone and escaped, you didn’t even have to do it—I could’ve! Uhg! You know what, I’m done! I’m giving you the silent treatment. Blah blah blah blah. I’m not listening… Mahahahahahaha. Sabien, Jason, where are you…” She started walking around looking for them.
Sabien satyed quiet, he wasn't sure how long this would last, at the asylum sometimes patients were like this for minutes, for hours, a couple patients had it going on for days. He didn't sit down though and satyed tense, if she found them he'd have to be ready to fight, and fight hard, he hoepd she wouldn't find them though, fighting her would make him risk shifting.
Zak heard yelling a little ways back, she'd gone through a maze of alleyways that twisted and turned, but obviously she wasn't as far away as she thugh, for that Xanthe, or a very angry loud version of Xanthe yelling. Zak turned down an alley that led to the road and walk catiously down it.
Quinn stomped in irritation. "I want you to show yourself!" She shouted, her red streak becoming more vivid in her anger. That was the thing. Xanthe could supress Quinn effectively with her power, and by reamaining calm. But Quinn had anger as her only means of keeping Xanthe down. As long as she was angry, there wasn't a thing Xanthe could do.
Zak stepped into the raod and looked around, she noticed a girl who looked sort of liek Xanthe but was different, this girl looked mean, angry, hateful. Zak stared fir a few moments and listened, then she slowly started to back away and back into the alley, her hand shaking, this wasn't a safe place, she needed to get away and this time not do a big circle in the confusing alleys.
Quinn noticed a tiny girl in the corner of her eye. She stopped and looked at the girl backing away from her. "You! Who are you? Xanthe, who is she? Who is this girl? Tell me! Oh--you are the one who hit Xanthe. You made her weak enough for me to take over," she laughed menacingly. "I like you for that. Help me find the guard so I can kill him!"
Zak just stood there, the gaurd? What guard? Weak enough for her to take over? She was rather confused, but then decided she really didn't want to help this person. She shook her head as she backed up, this person who used to be Xanthe could easily hurt her, Zak wanted to just get away from her.
Quinn gaped at the girl--Zak. She wasn't going to help? Ugh! If only Quinn was more like Xanthe. If only she could manipulate people like Xan could. Xan didn't even have use her ability. She could just persuade with her words! Quinn paused. She jus had to try and be like Xan. "What...? You don't want to help me? But...after they scared you, after they attacked you... I thought you might want to help me find them. Let me take them down to protect us both," she said in a fakely calm voice.
Zak stopped again, confused, they ahd scared adn atacked her, but wasn't that more of a reason to stay away from them? If she styed hidden and didn't see them again she wouldn't have to be scared by them again.
"I-I just wanna be lef' alone." she muttered and satrted to back away again.
Quinn painted a look of concern on her face. "But don't you understand? They want to hurt you. I heard them talking. They were going to go after you. They're both soldiers--they're trained to find people like you. You won't be safe..." She lied. Or bluffed, more like it. She had no clue what they had planned to do about Zak. She hadn't really been paying attention.
Zak's eyes widened. What had she done to get the soldier mad? Why would they want to hunt her down? She'd only acted in self defense again the big guy, she hadn't really been bad right? Zak kept shaking ehr head and backing up, she got into the alley and turned to run. If tjose people really wanted to hunt ehr down she had to get out of here.
Quinn watched the other girl as she ran. Wow, that hadn’t gone as she planned. How was Xanthe so good at talking people into doing what she wanted? Did she just always use her power? Whatever. Quinn, what was that for? You scared Zak even more than she already was. “Shut up! I don’t want to hear it.” Quinn marched into a building to her left, looking for the guard.
Xanthe knew Quinn was mellowing out a bit. Maybe she could get her power through to get help. What help? There isn’t anyone. Besides, the guards at the institution could barely help me. They just made it worse. They just make Quinn angrier…
Zak ran harder down the alley, she wasn't sure if she was being pursued, she didn't hear anyone, but for al she knew the person who formerly was Xanthe could fly. Today had just been weird. She darted down a twisting alley and stopping crawled in through a broken window in an old place that used to be a shop, she headed for the back room.
Finally, Xanthe decided to try to get through to Zak. If only to calm the poor girl down. Zak, can you hear me? It’s Xan—the real Xan. Are you there? Everything Quinn just told you was a lie, alright? No one’s out to get you. Zak? She wasn’t sure if she had made it through to Zak or not.
Jason was startled as the door opened. He sprang up, ready to electrocute whatever stumbled in through it, but stopped when he say it was the little girl from earlier. “Oh, it’s just you,” he sighed.
Zak stared at the two people quietly. She 'heard' what Xan, supposedly the real Xan had said, but wans't sure what to think, she was very confused, but hs eguessed she'd better shut the door. She stepped into teh room and shut the door behind her. Then Zak went and sat in the croner, she watched the two men suspiciously not really trusting them, but guessing in here was safer than out there.
Possibly failing to get through to Zak, she tried to get through to Jason or Sabien. She finally settled on Sabien because he would know a little more about the situation, being from Xperime. Can I get through to you?
Jason reclaimed his place against the wall. He didn’t really want to talk with crazy girl out there. So he stayed silent and glanced from the door, to Zak—as Xanthe had called her, to Sabien, back to the door. He wondered how long this double person thing would last.
Quinn scoured the first building, not finding them. “Rarrrg!” she screamed. “Where are you!” She stomped out of the place, ground quivering and shaking behind her as the building attacked itself. As it crumbled to the ground.
