Ok so this is pretty bad so feel free to change areas of duologue or actions. It's been far too long since I've POVed with this bunch, more so their undeveloped selves. The interactions between Claudia and George are so hard to write when they haven't gone through everything from the past RP... Anywoo, feel free to change things or tell other what you feel is more acurate.
Narrator (Because I’m too lazy to do first person)
It had to be fate. There were six large, glass cylinders connected to the machine that had been created for the sole purpose of saving those who had suffered from things doctors couldn’t fix. Inside each tube, showing up within an hour of each other, were six teenagers who had been injured beyond recovery. Even for a man like Richard Foulley, who didn’t believe in fate or chance, he had a hard time believing this was just a coincidence.
“Well, let’s get this fired up before any other emergencies happen tonight.” He muttered to himself turning the key to start the procedure. “Of course I’m working first thing in the morning after having a late night. Who ever make the schedule this month needs get their head adjusted.”
Richard sat down in his chair and watched curiously as lights flashed around in the tubes. No one had ever seen these at work besides that guy who created it, Jeremy Reed. Richard hummed to himself curiously, wondering how the scientist even tested this machine before having it transported to this hospital. Animal experimentation? He wouldn't put it past Jeremy to do that.
The procedure was surprisingly quick. He hit another button on the dashboard in front of him and removed the key before going to investigate the state of the children. He didn’t want to look up quite yet but he hadn’t heard the thump of dead or paralyzed bodies yet so that was a good sign. When he finally did look up the six children stood there looking rather confused.
“By the fact Mr. Williams and Mr. Prince are even walking and Ms. Russel is even alive I’m assuming the procedure worked. How are you all…” He drifted off as he looked at the group, the final word slipping past his lips without him even noticing. “Feeling?”
They all told the stunned doctor that they were fine in their own ways. The youngest girl, Claudia Russel, inquiring what had happened to them.
He was still staring at the two sixteen year old boys as he spoke again. “There were a series of accidents today. Ms. Russel and Mr. Williams were in their own separate car crashes, Ms. Istorí was struck by a lightning bolt, Ms. Moon was caught in a burning building, Mr, Lupin was caught in an explosion at a gas station, and Mr. Prince fell off a cliff.” He explained nervously, still eyeing the two boys, unsure of what to say in the moment. “Your parents all agreed to allow you to partake in an experiment that would heal your injuries that otherwise would have changed your lives. I however regret to inform you that there was a slight side effect this time around. Mr. Prince, Mr. Lupin, I apologize for what happened.”
The boys looked at eachother and paled, realizing what happened.
“What happened to them? How exactly did this machine change their DNA?” Hyunjoo Moon asked, a concerned look entering her honey colored eyes.
Gabriel Prince folded down his wings, attempting to pull the tattered back of his hospital gown over it while Bleiz Lupin examining his new claws, his wolf ears pricked like he a curious dog.
“I don’t know, it’s kinda cool.” George Williams chimed in looking around his own body to see if he also had changed.
Claudia patted down her black hair to make sure she wouldn’t be surprised by animal ears. “It’s not cool, it’s terrifying, this machine totally messed with their DNA, meaning it probably affected ours too.”
The doctor paled slightly, quickly glancing over the group again to make sure none of them had suddenly grown any more strange features.
“I’m going to inform your parents we are keeping you over night, just to be sure you four don’t randomly end up like the other two and perhaps see if Mr. Lupin and Mr. Prince’s condition is only a temporary side effect. I’ll be right back. I’m the only one with a keycard for this room so unless it’s me no one else should be able to enter the room from the outside. Please do not let anyone in or leave this room until we have this all sorted out.” He said before leaving the room full of teens.
The group fell into silence, most of them too afraid or confused to speak up. Bleiz’s ear twitched as if he were listening to something.
“What’s up Wolf Boy, you’re acting like you are listening to something interesting.” George commented.
The older boy shook his head and spoke in a soft voice. “I can hear the doctor and my father and there are other people. All of your parents?”
Claudia’s brow frowned. “I have good hearing and I can’t hear a single thing through these giant doors.”
“It probably has something to do with his new wolf attributes.” Cloud mused softly.
“What else can you do?” George asked edgerly.
The wolf-like boy looked down nervously before continuing to talk. “We’ll I… I can hear your heartbeats as well as feel them through the floor. I can also hear everyone moving around the hospital as well as the machinery. There are several clocks on the walls that are ticking, one of them isn't perfectly synchronized with the others. I can smell food in the cafeteria, salad dressing, beef, potatoes, and… eggs?” He shrugged slightly.
“You’re senses have increased… How’s your sight?” Gabriel asked.
“I’m not sure. It feels different but I’m not sure how. It almost seems brighter and more colorful, all the details seem really clear.”
“Well if being a wolf increased his senses then what about you, Tweety Bird? Can you fly?” George asked.
The boy paled. He raised his wings slightly like he was going to try then immediately put them down without trying. He looked away, unable to meet the other’s gaze.
The younger boy was standing in a flash. “Come on aren’t you even going to try?” He complained before taking note of the other’s expressions. “What’s wrong with you lot?”
“You moved so quickly…” Claudia stuttered out.
“So what? I’m fast.” He replied, still unsure of what the problem is.
“No that speed was inhuman. There was just a blur of motion.” Claudia said worriedly.
Hyunjoo tapped the younger girl on the shoulder. “Please calm down.”
The black haired girl snapped out of it and looked at the girl confusedly before a folder with their files in it and several medical instruments clattered to the ground.
“Where did those come from?” The younger girl asked.
“They started floating off the counters and around the room when you started freaking out about speed boy.” One other the other girls replied.
“No offence but wouldn’t it be easier to just inform each other of our names instead of constantly nicknaming each other?” Gabriel hesitantly pointed out.
The crowd of strangers looked around at each other realizing they had been nicknaming each other.
“It’s kind of weird, since we were all taken to this hospital I assume we all attend the same school, yet I don’t recognize any of you. I feel badly for not knowing who you all are, but I just don’t think I’ve ever seen you guys before... Maybe I’m just younger than all of you.” The smallest girl pondered.
“Come on if you go to my school you have to have heard of me. George Williams, sports player and straight A student.” The brown haired fourteen year old said brushing his bangs to the side.
“Eh… It kind of sounds familiar. I might have heard of your name as a passing comment. I don’t care much for school sports. I’m sorry for not knowing you.” Claudia replied dipping her head slightly.
“Well I know most of the students in the school and I bet I’ve never heard of you before.” George replied sounding slightly offended.
“You probably haven’t I don’t do anything too out of the ordinary. My name is Claudia Russel.”
He paused slightly. “Never heard of you.”
“I feel like I might have seen you three in the halls before but I don’t think we've had any classes before. What grade are you three going into next year?” Hyunjoo asked the older three kids.
They each replied they were a eleventh grader.
“Makes sense I’m only going to tenth grade.” She mused.
“I feel so young only being in ninth.” Claudia muttered.
“Wait you’re also in ninth?” George walked, looking to the girl who appeared very young in comparison to himself.
Claudia nodded, “I just barely made the cut off for being in ninth instead of eighth.”
“And you still don’t have a clue who I am?” George pouted.
The younger girl let out a nervous chuckle. “You’re not going to let me live this down are you?”
“Nope.” The boy replied crossing his arms.
“Anyways you four never stated you names.” Claudia said in attempt to get the boy to stop making her feel guilty.
One by one they each stated their names.
“Alright now that the boring conversation is over I want to see if I really am super fast or if you are all crazy.” The youngest boy said.
Without waiting a second to hear the other’s protects he ran forward. The blur of motion zoomed forward nearly too quickly to see. Within a millisecond there was a thud coupled by the boy falling to the ground after running into a wall having not stopped fast enough. He jumped up, smiling broadly obviously pleased with his new abilities.
“George, we shouldn’t be messing with these side effects, they might be dangerous.” Claudia said softly, avoiding eye contact.
“Come on, what’s the worst that can happen?” George countered.
“Death.” Claudia replied in a surprisingly blunt tone.
“You’re such a spoilsport.” George pouted.
The black haired girl looked away. “Sorry.” she said in a soft tone, backing off of her stance that they could be hurt.
“What about you two, you probably have powers too right. Two thirds of us already do so you guys should too.” George insisted looking to the two remaining girls.
“No, no, I don’t think I have anything. I mean I’m curious to see what I might have, but at the same time… I don’t know. I more so am curious as to how our DNA got mixed up in that procedure. Is it reversible? What if it shorted our life span? Or what if there are more abilities than we know about? Or…” As the girl with long dyed hair continued to ramble her skin began to glow, brightening and dulling depending on whether the statement concerned her.
“I think it’s safe to say we found her ability.” Gabriel said with a soft, sympathetic smile crossing his face.
The girl looked down in confusion. As she did so a look of fear crossed her face and the glow got even brighter, so much so the others had to shield their eyes.
“Gah, would you stop that?!” George cried out, resulting in the light starting to die down a bit.
“Hey leave her alone, she can control it yet.” Hyunjoo said trying to defend the older female.
George approached the Korean girl. “Well you’re the only one left, what’s your power?”
The girl in turn backed away from him, a slightly concerned look crossing her face. “I-I don’t know, how am I supposed to know?”
George continued to approach until she was backed into the wall with nowhere to go.
Meanwhile Bleiz’s ears pricked again and he spoke in an urgent but hushed voice. “Guys… The doctor…”
The others paid him no mind watching Hyunjoo seemed to panic which George being so close.
“Come on just try something.” He insisted.
“But I don’t want to!” She cried.
At that moment a container of tools lying in front of Claudia, from her incident earlier, caught fire. The young girl screamed in terror throwing her hand forward by instinct. The flaming basket of melting metal went flying forward low across the ground away from her and insidentaly towards the rest of the group. Gabriel pulled Bleiz and Cloud out of the way, shielding them with his wings and George similarly used his super speed to pull himself and Hyunjoo out of the way as it slammed against the wall. The six kid sat there staring at the flame as it cracked against the luckily fire proofed walls and floor. The scent of smoke and burning rubber reached burned their noses as she backed away. Bleiz was practically choking because of the smoke and strong scents. To make matters even better the sprinklers went off, soaking them and their surroundings.
“I’m so sorry.” Claudia cried covering her face.
“That doctor is going to kill us when he gets back, isn’t he?” Hyunjoo said, still slightly in a daze.
“Yes, yes he will.” An adult male voice said behind them.
They all turned to see Richard Foulley standing behind them, a rather bitter expression on his face.
“I didn’t think I’d have to tell you all not to burn down the room while I was gone! You’re lucky we were prepared for the machine to malfunction and catch fire so we had this room fire proofed. What the heck happened in here!?” He snapped, his appearance vaguely resembling a mother scolding her toddler.
“Hyunjoo was the only one who tried to burn this place down because she can’t stand people being in her personal bubble.” George replied lazily pointing his thumb over his shoulder at the older girl.
“I didn’t mean to use mine. You purposely used yours and ran into a wall.” Hyunjoo cried out defensively.
“And Claudia used her freaky moving items power to throw the flaming objects into the wall while Cloud stood there glowing. We’re all even.” The boy replied lazily.
“I’m sorry.” Claudia apologize.
“Wait. Wait. Wait. Just wait one second. Did you say you were all using powers?” Richard said his expression extremely serious.
“Yeah, I have super speed, Claudia keeps making things float and move randomly, Hyunjoo set that basket on fire, Cloud was glowing, Bleiz has some pretty awesome senses that are way beyond normal, and then there is Gabriel who turned into a chicken, literally he is a flightless bird.”
“I must be in some sort of nightmare.” Richard Foulley muttered to himself.
He opened up the red hatch in the wall and pulled out a fire extinguisher and handed it to the closest kid which happened to be Cloud.
“I’m going to go finish getting your room arrangements. You six put out that fire, clean up this room, and don’t mess anything else up.” The thirty year old doctor snapped before leaving again, the door unintentionally slamming behind him.
