    Lex frowned, "I doubt Mira's going to let us have time to negotiate, and those men aren't going to want to listen to us..."

    "But if we can get in there without her seeing us, maybe we got a chance."


    Lex set his shoulders and started moving again, "If you got an address that'd be great, otherwise I'm stuck following her. Also I can't get through walls, or locked doors so unless you're going to make us go ghost I don't know how we're getting in."

        Violet's thoughts flashed back to when she dueled with one of the Musketeers in the Wreck Room. That had ended with her unconscious and being carried to the Infirmary. She'd defeated one at a later date but she still had more losses than wins; at least when she fought within the rules. "Eh, Musketeers aren't all that. Fencing is all play-fighting anyway."

        "What do you do? Play any sports?"

          "So...do we walk in, bold as brass or are we going for something more stealthy?"
          "I can make myself look like a local, but I don't speak the local lingo so if someone were to talk to me I'd be screwed." The American paused for a moment then added. "Unless we can get Ms. Zlatkovski to listen in over my communicator and translate for me...I could fake a throat injury that would make it look like I couldn't talk. That might make it easier." Jack shrugged at that, remembering how things went the last time he tried blending in.

            LONDON (Current and Fluxx)
            With Fluxx guiding him, Current was soon standing outside of Vauxhall Cross, home of the British Secret Intelligence Service--MI6.

            Many other departments were scattered about London. MI5--Britain's Security Service--was headquartered at the Thames House. Many of the Military Intelligence sections, such as MI8, which dealt with radio signals, or MI15, which handled aerial photography, were today defunct. MI17 served as a secretariat to the other departments and MI19 was responsible for obtaining intelligence from enemy prisoners of war, but there never was an MI18... at least, not officially...

            Given what Fluxx had seen during his last visit here, it was safe to conjecture that William Arnett was the head of a department that dealt exclusively with super-powered beings. The man had to have some clout in order to secure them an audience with a prisoner kept in total isolation in another dimension. An intelligence agency concerned with super-powered beings, separate from MI6 but hidden right beside them. Despite their best efforts, Martin could easily retrace his steps back to where Abigail was kept. There were only two problems...

            How to get through MI6's headquarters unmolested and how to gain access to the extra-dimensional cell where Abigail was kept.

            "I played a bit of football when I was younger," Jakob confessed. "I haven't been skiing in a while, but I always enjoyed that. Maybe ve could do that some time?

            "For the most part, I'm more into music than sports."

            That was certainly true: Jakob had a guitar with him the first time she saw him.

              Otso shrugged, planning subtle operations wasn't his strong point. Still, he offered his input. "I can't imagine we wouldn't be seen either going up or coming down. I say go for ballsy. We're a bunch of foreigners coming in to ask about the doctor, who's also a foreigner. We'll say we're volunteers sent over here to help him. Makes sense to me."

                "I would love to go skiing with you. I understand there are some very nice resorts not far from here." Violet smiled brightly. A ski vacation with a boyfriend would be heaven.

                Then she leaned back, remembering Jakob's guitar. "How much do you play? Guitar I mean. You had it when we met."

                      Violet shrugged. "He's not bad for oldies, I guess. I mostly like dance music." She blushed slightly. "I guess you noticed I like dancing."

                        Jakob leaned in. "I like watching you dance. The way you move... it's mesmeric." He grinned dopily... and then looked alarmed when their server set down two fresh drinks and a slice of black forest cake with two forks.

                        "Fräulein?" Jakob asked. "Wir nicht bestellt..."

                        "Komplimente des hauses," she said before continuing with her rounds.

                          The cowl melted back in to Martin's head to expose his face and features. Then he went up to the door with Lex at his side.... and knocked, loudly.

                          Really this was to get the attention of whoever was monitoring the cameras. Seriously, this was London. Everything was recorded, captured on camera for posterity.

                          "I am Martin Curie." he proceeds to give the exact date and time of his previous visit to this facility. They'd have records. "Currently, my companion on zat visit, Mira, is under a specialized form of mind control to free ze woman 'eld on zese premises. She'll be 'ere in moments. I'm 'ere to 'elp minimize damage to zis building and to 'er. And I'm coming in wiz Alex Murphy. You 'ave about 6 seconds to do your background check." He proceeds to surround Lex. They both blur and he starts to lift them up, not phasing through the building yet, but headed toward the roof.

                          [How tall is the building? What floor was the cell and control room on? We don't need to gain access to the extradimensional cell. We need to intercept and keep Mira from doing so.]
                          His plan is to phase in at the top floor and find the stairwell that leads to the roof access. He'll assume Abigail's shape and try to get Mira to lead 'Abigail' out, fulfilling her promise.

                            Violet's blush deepened. She'd never thought about how she looked while dancing. It was all about how she felt. "I just do what feels right. You should dance with me. It's more fun with a partner."

                            When the server brought cake, she was just as surprised. "Well this is splendid. Do you come here often? Maybe one of the staff recognized you."

                              Kas listened to Otso's idea and nodded thoughtfully. "Perhaps we could do both. Otso and Jack could enter the hospital as aides...volunteers come to assist Doctor Bacon and Harry and I could take up a position about a thousand feet up and monitor through our commlinks. That high up, it's highly unlikely anyone will spot us and if they do, without binoculars, it's even more unlikely they would recognize us as human beings."

                              "The only reason I mention this is.."
                              He points to his sightless eyes. "...it would take a hell of a liar speaking to one hell of an idiot for anyone to believe I've come to assist a doctor."

                                Lex, happy to not being running for a couple seconds, takes the time to catch his breath and generally feel miserable. He had to learn how his dad could run without hurting himself.

                                "Ten bucks... says... they to... shoot us..." he snarks between deep breaths.
