The Future - The Underground

Under the streets of New York City there are many tunnels that are long forgotten. There are many dead ends, rivers of sewage, pipes and maybe that alleged alligator. There isnt much light down here and if you dont have a flash light, youll be navigating the tunnels blind. Occasionally there is a bit of light that filters down from a storm drain. For those that dont know theyre there, its almost impossible to spot, but in spaced areas in the tunnels are markers to show those how to get to the mutant haven deep underground which is home to the redeemers and the rebellion.

Almost to the base…Robyn's been grabbing onto the pipes on the wall to drag himself along to try to get there. He's fighting to stay conscious and he's lost a lot of blood as the bullet hit his lung and he's been lucky to stay alive this long. Eventually though he just collapses on the ground and uses this time to try to posses someone in the base. In the base though a voice yells for two people, Rashmi or Connor. It's a young mutant, about 16 years old, running to find one of the two people.

Perhaps it's the tone, or something else, but the words penetrate the psionically induced fog on Volk's mind, forcing him bolt upright. Immediately grabbing for a pistol, he starts running down the hallways in search of the sound. Catching the young man, he just meets the eyes of the boy, and then pushes him back down the hall the way he came to follow!

"It's me..Robyn." Says the boy. "I need help..now. I'm in the tunnels." He tells him wear and he can't hold on much longer as his mind jumps back to his own. From in the tunnel there's a coughing as Robyn lies on his side on the ground, his shirt dark from blood and it on the ground. "Connor!" He calls out coughing more, it's a wet cough and it doesn't sound good.

In several swift movements, He's there and he's not, increasing his speed with a myriad of line of sight portations, until suddenly he's at Robyn's side, and immediately Volk picks him up and he's in the infirmary… and has him settled on the very bed he was using a moment before. Settling him down, he immediately begins to look over the wound attempting to triage, "Hold on… Easy breaths…"

Robyn looks at Connor and smiles slightly. "Connor…it was Dingo. Dingo's….the mole." He says as the wound doesn't look good, it's not something that's easily patchable and with the fact that there's a bit of blood that Robyn's coughing up, he'd know that by the position the wound is, it probably hit Robyn's lung. "Connor…thanks…thanks for everything. You…were my stren..strength. I…I'm…you…don't…don't lose your voice again….it's better…when you talk." He says reaching out a hand to try to grab onto one of his.

Volk stops trying to treat the wound, and kneels down to catch the hand. Nodding once, there are no tears that seem to come, but there is a tightness to his eyes and a set to his jaw as a shuddering breath wracks him. Gripping tightly, he then says quietly, "Shhh… you'll be better… you'll *COUGH* hang on. I'll get one of the psychics… I… will find someone… hold on…"

Robyn grips tighter and shakes his head. "Don't…don't leave me…don't…wanna be..alone." He says as he starts to cough more, the look of fear shows on his paled face as he starts to shake a bit. "Take care…of Rashmi. She….needs you. You…care for her." He says as he's noticed it. "Tell her…find…find Jessica..never lose..hope." He says as he looks straight up blinking his eyes. "I don't..I don't want to die Connor…I'm…I'm scared." He says as he knows he won't be able to hold on much longer.

Leaning in close, Volk kisses Robyn on the forehead, and leans in close to whisper, "I… Promise. I promise… it will end soon… the pain will stop… then you will feel warm… and light… and all your burdens will be laid to rest… You'll see Jordan again… your Jordan… and Jericho, and Christopher… and my family. They're here… they're all here…" His other hand coming up to caress the hair from Robyn's brow.

Robyn hasn't let go of Connor's hand and he nods. "My family…too." He says as he lets out a cry of pain as he starts to cough, choking on his own blood. "Jordan….just tell him..I'll..I'll always love him? Okay? Just..just let him know. You…best..friend Connor. Thank…you." He says as he just goes limp his life fading away he held on as long as he could before just giving out.

Closing his eyes, and gritting his teeth, he just leans in head in for a long moment. Another shuddering breath is taken, before he sits back and takes his hand to close Robyn's eyes. Then he takes the hands and puts them in a relaxed position on his chest, before covering him up with the blanket there, "You're welcome…little rabbit… little brother." Gulping once more and fighting it all back, teeth grinding together before he stands up, and for a moment gravity isn't working right in the room, things trying to come towards him, ending up floating in the air… until finally he just grunts hard and all those floating objects flash out and imbed themselves in the wall. Shaking his head once, he just whispers out, "You're a hero."
