I sat there stunned for a moment while the room erupted around us. Did they really just say they were going to force mutants to take the cure against their will? Even if they are convicted of a crime that's just . . just . . I don't what it is but it sounds bad.

"Come on, Scott, let's get out of here," Gaia said.

I just kind of looked at her in a daze put she grabbed my arm and pulled me up. I followed her through the crowd and reached the elevator. There were several people in the hallway talking furiously into cel phones.

Once we hit the street we found the building was surrounded by angry crowds. Man, news travels fast in this city. We started to make our way through the masses of people when I spotted Ana Ishikawa. She owns the gallery that Danny Bailey works for. Wolverine and Iceman have both been doing some work there too, I think. Danny is a nice guy but there's something a little odd about him. I just can't put my finger on it.

The crowds surging around us seemed on the verge of rioting. The police did their best to maintain order. They let Ms. Ishikawa through to us.

"Mr. Summers," she said breathlessly, "is Danny with you?"

"Danny? No, why do you ask?"

"He is missing, I am worried."

I was sorry to hear that. I hope nothing happened to him. I was about to say something when Gaia grabbed m elbow. "Scott we should get out of here quickly. I think things are going to get ugly. We may need to assemble the team."

I nodded and Ms. Ishikawa said, "Go ahead. But if you see Danny could you call me, please."

"Of course. I hope he's okay."

I turned away to try and start making my way through the masses when a coke bottle came flying through the air and smacked into my head.

This is going to be ugly.

Well, so much for any possible hiden goalie talents you might have had hidden away.

Maybe you should let someone else be the public face of the school. You strike me as a behind the scenes type of guy. Very behind the scenes.

If it was a two liter bottle, it probably didn't hurt much, I reckon.
