<<Prepare...the time is coming to surrender what I've asked for.>>
Xavier inhaled sharply as the strange voice filled his mind. He
frowned and leaned forward slightly as his hand reached his temple.
No one noticed his distraction, as Xavier's face remained even and
calm. He listened, but the thought did not come again.
The words had been cold, and Xavier struggled to suppress a shiver.
The voice had been sane, but cruel, almost inhuman. He focused his
mind on the voice and tried to send a reply.
<<Prepare for what?>> He thought, to no one specifically but he knew
if the speaker's mind had reached him, he would be able to reach
There was a new sense of cold, so biting Xavier began to massage his
temple with his fingertips. Then, with frightening clarity, there
was a response.
<<Do not interfere, Charles. Or be certain, you will lose more than
one taken by the Sentinel tonight.>>
Then, the presence was gone and Xavier exhaled slowly. He had
listened to thousands of minds in his lifetime, probably millions,
but no voice mutant or human had ever been so hateful, so dangerous.
Xavier glanced around the jet at the others and frowned deeply. A
strong, unconquerable determination fell across his face. He did
not know who the speaker was, but Charles Xavier was not going to
allow this new danger bring harm to those he cared about. He had
been helpless before, but there was no force acting on his will now.
With one clear thought ringing in his mind, Charles Xavier replied
once again to the stranger's voice.
<<One life or one hundred, threaten them again, and my interference
will be only the first reason you have to fear me.>>
The windows of the jet reverberated slightly as the thought echoed
from Xavier's mind.
...and somewhere in the wilderness, a strange man, who was not a
man, rose into the night sky and headed towards Stryker's base, a
fresh frost covering the land as his passed overhead...
A storm is coming.
Author's notes: Yay, finally onto book 3. Just want to run down
the crossovers, and again I DON'T own any characters from Marvel or
any other universe that's been drawn into this story.
Movie - "The Prophecy" (Mary, featured more in book 1)
Book/Movie - "The Firestarter" by S.King (the main character here is
Sid and Rebecca's mother, who has not been located by anyone for
about 8 years)
Movie - "Firestarter 2" (really has nothing to do with book, just
the first movie, but did base how Rebecca looks on the girl who
plays Charlene McGee in this movie. For my story I'm assuming
Charlene McGee would look more like a grown up version of Drew
Berrymore in movie 1 (that is if she shows up :-)
T.V. - "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" (Little Harmony reference,
Sebastian's a vampire and more Watcher's Council)
Movie - "Dogma" (still very small reference)
Movie - "Virtuosity" (THIS is how Sid looks. Suits, slick hair,
attitude, though not the same weird android serial killer character
but I like the nickname. Oh, yeah and the fact that he is Russell
Crowe. :-) Watch the movie and you'll understand the 'glass'
Movie - "Storm of the Century" (Be it known, I am a Stephen King
movies fan. Love cheesy horror movies, can't help it. Though this
movie is pretty freaky, and main bad guy scared the hell out of me
and my roommates in college.)
Woo...it's getting crowded in here.
