The four agents made their way to the building, moving quietly. Sam was in the front, just in case he needed to teleport them out. Deana was behind him, followed by Bailey and Jorden.
Opening the side door, they were surprised that the first room was empty. Jorden listened carefully and could hear low voices in the next room. He nodded and gave a signal to approach the room to the right. They would be catching the captors by surprise, then teleporting out.
As soon as they moved to the next room, they could see several men gathered around a box which appeared to have money in it. One of the men turned and saw them, shooting at the agents. Bailey rushed toward him, causing the man to drop the gun. He then attacked with his hands. Jorden could hear that the captives were alone, as all of the captors were in the room with the money. He was beginning to wonder if the idea that any of them had powers was just an illusion on the police officers' parts. He could feel negative energy from all of them men, but could not sense anything else.
He tapped the side of his head, glancing at Deana, who was busy fighting. She let him in, though reluctantly.
'I think the mutants left the building. They may have already found our men,' he waited for her to reply, but only got a quick nod.
Deana contacted Sam. "Jorden seems to think the mutant is outside. We should probably teleport out now and help them with it."
Sam nodded to her, then backed away from the man he was fighting with. He drew both of his hands out, then brought them back in. The floor felt like it had dropped, along with their stomachs, and they were back out in the open.
When he saw them appear, Mike glanced at Deana. She contacted him, letting him know what was going on.
"So, no mutants have shown up? Agent Daken said they were not in the building anymore. They must have cleared out as soon as we went in.The question is where they went." She smiled at him, then turned her attention back to the captors. It was time to take them down.
Mike shook his head, staying alert. He made a fist at Alex and Kyle, signaling that the mutants were outside somewhere.
They began fighting the other men, taking them down by sheer numbers. All they could do was wait, but the idea of an enemy mutant out there was nerve wracking.
As the police were making their way into the building, Alex turned to Jorden. "I think you should go with them. You will know what is going on better than they will, and can stay connected with Deana. It's too bad if they don't want any of us going with them. They need us. Please go."
"Yes, sir," Jorden replied quietly. He made his way over to the police officers, speaking with the lieutenant quickly. The lieutenant glanced back at Alex, frowning. He should have known the young leader would have sent one of his own men.
Some of the police officers had already taken the captors into custody, so they did not need to concentrate on them.
There was silence for a while, and Will kept a hand on the wall of the building. He did not feel anything for about ten minutes, then he noticed a strange tingle in the air that was vibrating through the metal. Alex and Terry felt it, and Alex started charging himself with electricity. He remembered what the captain had said about someone with his powers, and he knew the other person was about to show up. The others stayed alert, also, getting their powers ready.
Alex glanced around the corner and saw a man pulling electricity from all the buildings, which would give him a large amount of power. Alex cursed lightly under his breath, knowing why the other mutant had waited for them. He was looking for a good fight. Well, he was about to get one.
Stepping out from the building, Alex shot a bolt of lightning at the other man, who grinned and shot back at him. The fight was on.
