I was standing, creating a new strategy without Violet. Then, something interesting happened. As I was writing on the whiteboard the walls to my left opened up and in walked Drake. He spoke first.
"Call me Apocolapse, I like that name."
"How drole, I will call you Drake in your presence, to others you are Apocolapse."
His eyes narrowed.
"You know what I can do to you."
"Yes, and you are acquainted with the perspicacity that I may be one of the few people to ever perceive how to desist your powers from working."
"Sadly, yes, but beside the point. What are you doing?"
"Currently, I am formulating a stratagem to stop you."
"Why do you need a plan?"
"Simple, they are unorganized and need to be told what to do. I could devote my time doing much more important things, but their so-called leader, Meita, is a complete debacle and doesn't grasp what she's doing. Meanwhile, each member of the team is dealing with their own personal problems which is annoying as hell."
"Then join me."
I think of this and move the idea in my mind a little.
I walk out of the room and walk down to Violet's room. I see quite a few people and begin touching them, instantly gaining their knowledge and information. Quickly after that I walk down the stairs and touch everyone in the living room, then I notice Ian. I touch him too for good measure. Then, I walk back up the stairs, convinced that I haven't missed anyone, and I walk back to Drake.
"Ok, we can leave now."
At this, I walked with him through the hole in the wall, the wall then reformed behind me as both Drake and I walked out of a transpatial portal.
So, Ian was just pulling a masquerade, he does have complete control over his abilities. How drole.
Then, I found myself in a laboratory.
"Let's get to work."
