'Widow' can sense someone on the first floor, just a normal person, barely a temptation.Stitch
Guilty, Afraid, Hopeless, Insecure, Angry
'Widow' eyes the desktop like it's a baited snare. "I think I've watched too many spy movies," she whispers. "Anything that looks convenient looks too convenient," she mutters.
The black-suited heroine glances around suspiciously. Hopefully this Blackfinch was trusting enough of their technological superiority to not research anti-psychic defenses. Maybe she could sweep for any spiders waiting beyond the normal security goons. She draws deep into herself, preparing for the task of sending her aura around the whole building quickly enough to be useful.
That was a mistake.
It had been too long since she pushed like this, and the lingering hunger there, she just wasn't ready for it. Especially since she hadn't fed it, refused to feed it. And right now, near her, there was only Beth, so magically infused with life, and Ehri, who she was already so close to and surely wouldn't notice just a brush against her life-force...
"Aaaaa..." 'Widow' drops to one knee, clutching her head. Too much, she was so tired, tired of this landmine buried in her brain. It's all she can do to keep from screaming about her inability to control it. While she has the focus of the anger - before it simmers down into self-pity and resentment - she casts her senses out, feeling for any other people in the building. There should be a few guards, but if there's more...
OOC: charge powers: 2d6+1 4 Well... crap.
I guess, Afraid, Hopeless, and Insecure, too? And 2 burn. Will then mark Angry to ask "Is there anyone here in the building, ready to come after us?"
...yeah, she needs some help, badly ^^
But above you, there's somebody else, somebody with power and vitality on Brick's level. Now THAT would be a proper meal, that would satisfy.
And anyway, who said you needed to hold yourself in all the time? Kids at school get to do all kinds of crazy stuff and most of them don't even get grounded! Why do you have to hold yourself under such restraint all the time? It's totally not fair!
