    Laura Changte
    House of the Talbott's, D.C.

    Laura nodded at Chaz report and looked around. "Get into the chopper the moment it lands!" She yelled over to Anna and Kawin. Then she looked at Chaz. Nodding she gave the two dead bodies a last look.

    "Explain the police the situation and take the car back. I got this one. Make sure your old colleagues work fast. I need to know what is going on here!" She yelled her words over the chopper sounds and then turned to enter the chopper last.

    Talbot's House, Get to the Chopper!

    Letting the actual 'specialist' Laura handle things at the moment left him somewhat as a sidecar in the situation. Taking the offered arm of the young woman he was here to help, and letting her act somewhat as his impromptu crutch as he hobble stepped it to the chopper.

    If not for the dead bodies no one would of realized that this was a frenzied retreat, not at the pace he was able to muster even with Miss Talbots arm helping him along. Although at the pace she wanted to go he felt slightly dragged in the helping hand department. He had wanted to say something to calm her down, help her relax, but with the furious noise that that beast of a helicopter was putting out he could hardly hear his own thoughts.

    Once there he smiled and nodded as the young woman tossed her bag aboard, jumped up ahead of him and then reached back to help him. Nodding he simply passed her his cane as he did a well practiced maneuver. Letting her pull on the cane to feel helpful he got one good hand on the floor of the chopper and did one hand stand, spin and sit. Letting go of the cane he scooted himself back until he had a good spot to get grip on a seat, reaching out he retook his cane and planted it on the opposite side to aid in hefting him up and leverage a push into the seat. Where he then was able to sort out his legs.

    Reaching up he grabbed a headset and motioned for the girl to do the same as Laura came aboard. "Much better." he simply smiled and sighed for a contented moment before trying to get his seat restraints on. "It's a four clip buckle, see how I do? One, two, three, and click four. Cinch straps. There we go, now your turn."

    Matt Andrews
    Office in the The White House, Washington D.C. and beyond ...

    Matt did not show any satisfaction when Gates was asked out, but he felt quite a bit satisfied. The President wasn't the strongest man, but he had just shown he also was not a complete fool.

    He sat down on the couch he had sat on so often and sighed. He waited for Professor Cale and the President to do the same and then began to talk.

    "Sebastian Stein is an idealist. Which means he will do whatever he considers right. Actually he is a man with high moral standards and political education. He is also one of the worlds most famous street artists. But we wouldn't be sitting here if that was all. I became aware of him, when he appeared in this office. I never saw him, neither did any Secret Service guard, camera or staff. He stopped time, walked in here and talked to the President. He can do that. Stop time. He seems also to have the ability to teleport and he was killed at least once and appeared in Alaska half an hour later. He is intelligent, highly intelligent actually and has the ability to plan and execute complex schemes. He is probably ... no ... he is the most dangerous person alive. And he has also killed before. Only when considering it necessary, but he has executed the Gifted codenamed Gamma. Also because of his abilities conventional security is absolutely ineffective against him. I mean ..." Matt sighed. "When he considered Kurt Roland a threat he told him to back off or he would ... I quote him here as good as I can ... blow up all nuclear reactors on the eastern seaboard in alphabetic order. He could do that in a second. Freeze us and do whatever he wants without us ever having the ability to react to it." Matt folded his hands. "He got one weakness though. Other Gifted are immune to his powers. Also he is a man of flesh and blood and can be killed by normal means." He shrugged. "Yet, he returns from the dead eventually."

    Matt leaned forward. "I will be absolute honest with you. A bomb is actually not his style. He could do whatever he wanted to do to this building in Berlin without us being able to stop him. If there is the slightest, tiniest chance though he has turned against us, I'd say it is necessary that TARC get's involved with your personal security. You need Gifted bodyguards or you won't have a chance. That is what we have created TARC for, right? To have the ability to react to threats of the Gifted." He leaned back. "I do not care about my political career that much and hell, I don't want your job for sure. But I have spend my last years to prepare us for this scenario. If it is LEGO or another Gifted, Secret Service might not be up to the job this time."

    He had said enough. He had thanked the President for his trust by telling him the absolute truth. Now it was up to the most powerful man in the world how to deal with the situation, he was probably only number two on the list.

    Laura Changte
    Leaving House of the Talbott's

    Laura nodded at Chaz report which was hard to get over the sound of the helicopter and looked around. "Get into the chopper!" She yelled over to Anna and Kawin. They probably did not her, but climbed in anyway. Then she looked at Chaz. Nodding she gave the two dead bodies a last look.

    "Explain the police the situation and take the car back. I got this one. Make sure your old colleagues work fast. I need to know what is going on here!" She yelled her words over the chopper sounds and then turned to enter the chopper last. "I got this one." She said, but not loud enough to be heard over the sound of the rotors whirling. Ducking she signaled Chaz to proceed and climbed the chopper last. She padded the pilots shoulder to signal they were good to go and fastened her belt. Finally she took her headphones on and put them to mute. She left talking to Kawin now.

    The adrenaline slowly went out of her system and she began to feel the bitter and hollow feel of having taken a life.

    They had a car. They had watched. Why? If they were after Anna, why watch? Were they probably not there to kill her, but to recruit her? Had they tried to abduct her when they realized they had rivals?

    Laura felt almost ashamed what she was about to do to Anna. The Gifted were not soldiers. No. But to the overloads of TARC they were assets. Tools. She knew a bit how close Matt Andrews had been involved in the Antville affair. He had seen their worst side. Why had he put all his political weight into having his own group of Gifted? It was an easy enough to answer question. He prepared for a war. And ordinary soldiers would not do. Anna was a nice girl with a nice life. Laura hoped she would never realize they took it away from her, knowing she would never have it back.
