Omega stood solemnly as Umbra relayed the failure at the School. Omega sighed heavily and shook his head.
"I see. This is... an embarrassing setback for us all. We'll have to redouble our efforts and attempt a more... tactical approach, I suppose. We'll meet again later tonight. You're all free to go." Omega said to the villains gathered. He quickly turned and disappeared into the base, followed slowly by Umbra.
West Milencia was quiet in the aftermath of the attacks on the Hospital and the School. The people are the city were uneasy, especially when coupled with the unknown whereabouts of the Mayor. Tension hung heavy in the air. Palpable...

Alexander sat up straight acting as if he was in a lot of pain. " Yes, what's on your mind? "

Alexander sighed and turned his attention to the windows. " Oh and not to mention that one of you probably just tried to kill me. I could be wrong but I could also be right. "

She sighed, she failed at her job and did exactly what Love was saying they were going to, her powers were likely the most destructive of the group. She had to be more restrained. She got too goal oriented she went overboard in her powers. this was just proving Love right. She walked to the Jet and looked back at the school, disappointed that she put so many in danger.

She looked at Hazard and looked at the disappointed look she had on her face. She needed cheering up, but not there when the scene of the ruined school was in their view. She walked into the jet and looked at Hazard as she sat down.
"Um....well lets get going. It's been a very stressful day and I need to get cleaned." Shady sat down on one of the seats and put the seat belt on as carefully as she could. She did have quite a bit of mud on her and it would be bad if she made the seats filthy. "Oh, and don't think you get to walk away. You're going to have to help me clean up this mud that all over me...and in me" she glanced back at her back and shuddered at the though of how muddy her ammunition compartment probably was.

He shrugged. "Still not sure I'm understanding you fully, but I suppose that can't be helped. Being bigoted against half the population must be pretty tough, though." He turned back to face Love.
He waved Love off and said, "And I have my own theories about your attempted murder. The list of suspects isn't very long, due to your security. I really should get going. Been a nice chat, though."
He turned to leave, stopping in the doorway to say, "And don't ever insinuate that I would turn on this city again, if you know what's good for you." With that, Fossil was gone, heading back out of the hospital to meet up with the rest of his team again.
Hazard, Shady Metal, and Mobius would board the jet and return to base, while Guardian handled the first responders at the University.
Fossil exited the building, only to see The Gauntlet and Silver Stinger talking with the police. They had handled it well enough, explaining that the Alliance had attacked, and they merely did the best they could to stop any more destruction. No fatalities were reported, and the Praesent was in stable condition, so all things considered, the mission was a success.
Fossil flew the jet back to base, with the others on-board.
Back at the apartment building...
Hazard and her group would be disembarking from their jet when Fossil and the others arrived. Fossil gathered everyone around and folded his arms across his chest.
"So today was a fiasco, eh? Two buildings ruined, lotta people hurt... But, well, there's one good thing that came out of this, I think, don't you all?" He smiled and looked to the others, waiting for a response.

"Hopefully you don't mind me asking but.... what good did we get out of this?" she asked, letting her melodic voice show a hint of confusion.

Omega was already awake in the board room. Umbra wasn't sure if the man had even slept. He was perched with his mask sitting on the table next to him. He sighed heavily as the woman entered and picked up his mask.
Omega shook his head, "You could say that."
"What's next?" Umbra asked, approaching slowly.
"We'll have to... up the ante so to speak. The Guardians defended a direct assault rather easily. However... if there were a distraction... we could strike covertly. Better than an open assault." Omega resolved, pulling his mask on.
"Shall I wake the others?" Umbra asked.
"We'll see how things unfold today. I'd rather not force the issue if we don't have to. The damage to the hospital and the school will take time to repair. We should lay low for now and see if there's something we can use to our advantage."
With that, Umbra nodded and left Omega's presence.

Before Shady had powered down a little for the night she had placed her coat over Hazard to keep her warm. Their height differences made the coat more like a blanket for the younger hero. "You've been through a lot today" she whispered to the sleep girl with a smiled before nodding off with her hanging back and resting on the couch. She deserved a rest herself too.
When morning came by Kiara had eventually woken up a few minutes after the sun had risen. She would look around and smile at Hazard if she was still by her side. A new day filled with new things. What exactly did this new day hold for the heroes that aimed to protect New Milencia?

Quante was fairly tired and injured, although he was bandaged up at the hospital before leaving, and was in need of recovery time. He wanted to also fix up the gauntlet during the action it got banged up a little.

He found himself out at the docks, and merely looked off into the horizon as he sat at the end of one of the empty piers. Maicoh still wasn't sure why he was still in this city or if this was really what he wanted. Life just seemed strangely...empty, now.
