In all honest, while Alison had always known and feared that they would eventually lose against a Horseman she now knew she hadn't really prepared for that happening. There was a numbness in her throat that could almost not be swallowed around and Alison was sure that the same feeling resided in those around her. It wasn't as if anything golden was going to work itself through that numb knot; Alison didn't know what to say to any of the students on the plane as they no doubt were about to land in a place where they were again too late to do anything. There wasn't anything to be said and trying to interrupt the thoughts of all of the beaten and gloomy faces that she could see over her shoulder. Still, she had to put on the face of Staff along with the other teachers around her.

"We're just about to land," She announced, steadying herself to stand on up and pretend that saying that wasn't as much of a battler for her as what they might be facing once the plane did land. She should be getting these people home, should be protecting them more but down there could be Brian Braddock and maybe today wouldn't be all defeat. Alison knew they had to try and she also knew how desperate some of them would be to do just that. Elizabeth wasn't going to wait idly by at the school when it was her brother on the line. Everyone here had trained for this; so even though she felt that urge to send them away Alison knew that she couldn't do it. She was also beginning to realize that she also shouldn't do it but that pill was harder to swallow.

"News reports are sketchy, we know that there are abductions happening, we suspect that there are many dead below, but we don't know near as much about what's happening down there than we did earlier in Australia. Stay close to one another, follow the instructions given because we don't want anyone lost and we don't want to risk any of you."

Ororo tried to sit as still as she could and not feel closed in by the confines of the aircraft. Her mind was still trying to process exactly what happened in Australia but it was struggling with it. In a way, it was reminiscent of her memories and thoughts after the plane crashed into her childhood home and killed her parents. She had blocked off the horror of the event while she'd been trapped along with her dying mother in order to survive and not go insane during the moment. It was only years later that she could fully process what had happened and come to terms with it.

Unfortunately, she didn't have years at this point, she didn't even have hours and she had many others counting on her. So Ororo breathed evenly in an attempt to keep her apprehension from causing a sudden change in the weather patterns around them. She would grieve for those lost later, when she had time to properly remember the ones that had been lost while in her hands, too far gone to be saved, as well as those who had been lost before they had even arrived.

And now they were about to possibly face yet another so called Horseman, one of their own students no less. The thought of Brian being involved in what they were hearing was possibly a massacre just didn't resonate with the former goddess. What exactly was happening was anyone's guess and where all the people had come from was again, a guess. Until their feet were on the ground, so to speak, they wouldn't have any answers.

Alison spoke up and 'Ro's blue eyes turned toward the blond woman. While they could claim that they had trained for this sort of scenario, the fact of the matter was there was simply no preparing for it. She'd grown up in a war torn area with fighting amongst groups and gangs a common reality. No one was ever prepared for what they were about to face and what they might have to do. Her eyes flicked over toward Elizabeth and her mind drifted briefly to the conversation they'd recently had. Ororo could not imagine what the young woman was going through, knowing her brother could be in the center of the storm. She had a feeling whatever it was, Jean-Paul would be able to relate.

Ororo's eyes moved away once more and closed as she sent up a quick prayer for the Goddess to watch over them all.

JP Death and Liz

News had come through to Death that another had fallen, Apocalypse’s horseman were falling faster than flies, and all that remained was Death. He would not fail his master though, already the humans of this continent were feeling the cold grip of death on them and that influence would slowly spread until they all fell at his feet.

Since he had been taken Death had remained closed to the bond that was between the Braddock twins, whatever Essex had done to him had allowed him to remain off that radar, but the need to hide was over, Death knew his time had come and it was time to step out of the shadows before the children of Xavier’s institute arrived on his doorstep.

”Sister.” Death spoke as the bond between them opened for the first time in months. Death had been waiting for too long to put Elizabeth in the ground, he was going to make sure he enjoyed it before he did. The avatar or death began to push desperation down the two way connection, ”Help me,” He continued to speak alone. ”I can’t do this on my own. I need you.” Death knew all too well what she would do for her family, and she would come running, and allow her emotions to be clouded by her need to save her brother from the evil boogeymen.

She had been here before…not flying out to face off with the Horseman of the week villain, but to that place. It had been years. Most assumed that the rich took vapid and idle holidays, but her family had never done the whole lounging at pools thing. If there wasn’t an educational gain to it, they didn’t get to go. The closer they got the more memories came back. Her legs itching from bug bites. Having to hand her backpack to her twin while she rubbed her neck and shoulders when they ached. Sharing water bottles back and forth…

Tense, the telepath sat and chewed on her thumb, her face a mix of emotions that had become an unreadable mask. Out of the window she could see the sights she’d first seen when she was thirteen, but that time felt such a lifetime away.

The opening of the link felt like a dam bursting. Sitting bolt upright, Lizzie winced, bringing up her hand to pinch the bridge of her nose, trying to focus in. “Help you? I’m here to help you…” it was the first she had spoken to him with her mind for months, the first since she had seen him in the field that day. The words came faltering, as she lost sense of what to even say.

All around him there was blood being spilled for Apocalypse’s cause, ancient devices used to inflict the cruellest of deaths resurrected to aid Death in this task. There had been an enjoyment watching the initial deaths, but they paled in comparison to the deaths that were coming his way now. ”I… I don’t think I can hold out much longer.” Had this been anyone else, Death doubted that Liz would buy into, but how could you shy away from a brother that needed help?

”I’m losing control, I don’t know how much I can keep hold of it. How far away are you?” It was a risk asking such a direct question, but the avatar wanted to know how long he had to prepare, the other X-Kids needed to be dealt with before he could deal with Elizabeth.

His words sent a chill down her spine. Was this really him? Had the control somehow slipped away and he was now tearing himself apart? Given what she knew about the other Horsemen, doubt edged the corners of her mind, but what if. Then he asked where she was… It was getting harder and harder to stay physically and mentally in the same place. As for where they were? She wasn’t at the controls, so ETA was not something she could say. “I’m as close as I need to be, brother,” it hurt to say it.

”Hurry Liz. I…” It took all of Death’s control to be able to feign being Braddock once again, but the trap was laid and as he finished his words, he closed the connection between the two of them, it would leave Liz wondering what was happening to her brother, and at best would leave her panicking that something bad had happened to him again.

With the trap laid Death could prepare for the guests that were coming to the ancient Mayan city. All around them there was rainforest, and as Death stepped out onto the top of the ancient temple his eyes began to scan the horizon waiting for sight of the aircraft that would be bringing them here, so he could welcome them with open arms.

“I’ll be there, soon. I love you,” To anyone who was watching her, it would be easy to see the butterfly aura of her powers and the look of discomfort on her face. Balling her fists as the connection dropped again, her power signature vanished and her expression became a snarl as she punched out at the wall beside her seat, blindly not caring what she might do to herself. It didn’t even hurt, even though the skin on her knuckles was grazed and torn, small cracks of blood appearing. Liz had never liked feeling so weak, her temper had always gotten ahead of her and made her rash. She’d been working on that, but now…

Kurt was not used to this, he was not sure he wanted to get used to this, he had always dreamed of being a warrior but now that he was actually living it? Well, the reality was quite different to what his imagination had led him to believe. Now the X-Men were moving on, this time, to try and rescue Liz's twin brother, whom Kurt had yet to meet, but had heard plenty about him from the other students at the school and through his appearances on the news as the avatar of Death.

Whatever was happening here, Kurt was unsure if he actually wanted to step out of the ship, the fact that he was doing the right thing would eventually push him out the door but right now? Nerves were definitely held the better of him.

"Liz?" Kurt spoke as the butterfly aura of his friend appeared over her face, it was one of the telltale signs that the telepath was using her powers and instantly Kurt began to worry about what was happening to her given what was happening beneath them. "What is wrong?" The concern was apparent in his tone of voice, but she did not answer instead she lashed out at the wall of the aircraft making it pay for whatever slight it may have made against her.

"We'll find him," Kurt nodded, it was the finding him that was the easy part. Stopping him though and bringing him home? Well, Kurt wasn't really sure how they were going to be able to do that.

Alison spoke up about the getting ready to land, and reminding them of no heroics. "Right tight grouping." Kurt echoed more for his own benefit than anyone else. With their descent imminent the teleporting demon began to fidget with the belt that held him into the seat in which he was currently sat.

Jason's fingers had become overly acquainted with the arm rests, surely having worn in places on the flight from Australia. Sleep certainly hadn't happened except for simply passing out from exhaustion and he wondered how any of them were going to be able to make it through another event like that physically, let alone how some of them would be able to do it mentally. Jason came from a long line of emotion repressors so his worry on that front wasn't for him but for those around them and how they could be changing the outcome of this whole things with their emotional exhaustion.

Professor Blaire could say what she wanted; Jason knew that the frazzled would still have them adapting and changing with the wind. After what had happened with Jean-Paul he also wasn't looking forward to doing all of this with Elizabeth present. Surely it hadn't have been a good idea for either of them to have been present for this?

He sighed, unclinching his fingers from the armrests and rubbing his hands, trying to make himself run on something other than nerves and the need to succeed. When he was exhausted the one thing he could count on to carry him through was a very strong need for self-preservation. He wasn't ever going to be letting himself down any time soon; it was other people that he was going to be worrying about doing that.

Despite himself, he did glance around at the others just in time to see that telltale signs of the butterfly over Elizabeth's face flittering away. If that wasn't enough for Jason to assume that something was alarming the British woman's expression would be. "What's that about, then?" He asked, not expecting good things at all. What good could there be?

She could feel the jet starting it's descent and suddenly the words that she had shared with them seemed so ridiculously hollow. They shouldn't be landing here. What was there going to be for them to find? What could be done? Alison swallowed around her own cowardice, knowing that it was something that she was determined to never share with the people in her care. She gripped the back of the seat in front of her now, giving a sideways glance to Ororo. The other woman gave off a strength that Alison found she needed just as much as the students surely did.

Her eyes were away but her ears pricked up hearing Kurt asking what was wrong. That seemed a loaded question but Alison still quickly glanced back, nerves too heightened to think of letting any possibility of something going wrong by her scrutiny. As she did so Alison caught sight of the pink tinge to the air and a lump came up in her throat.

"Elizabeth?" It could be anything. It could have been that the girl was just being proactive and scanning the ground below but there was still an unease in Alison that told her that nothing would be that simple. Whoever was still down below to meet them had to know that they were coming and, while it was nice to know at the very least that they were in the right area of the country they were flying over, it was not comforting to know that they were expected guests to the horrors that surely awaited them below. "Anything?"

Whatever the answer that could be shared there was it couldn't be good. The expression on the girls' face certainly didn't speak of anything good but wondering what it was wouldn't do for anyone on the plane.

This was not how he had planned to spend his school days - bouncing from one battle to the next. There was going to be certain words had with a certain professor about spectacular grades despite him not turning anything in. He looked around. Elizabeth was barely keeping it together, and he jumped, letting out a small scream when she punched the side of the airplane. Please don't have let her punch through the bloody thing... He could only imagine how crappy she felt, it was her brother they were off to face. If he was like the last one - well. This wasn't going to end prettily. Ginny hoped she could keep herself from getting too emotional. They were going to fight her brother - overrun by Death.
As he felt the plane start at the descent, he watched Lizzie's face closely. She could give DEATH a run for his money with that look. He shuddered. Really, he did feel sorry for her. He was glad he was an only child.
He gave Jason's arm a squeeze to give them both some comfort. It was going to get hairy down there. He looked around then - everyone looked worried and scared. The thought that he wasn't alone in wishing he'd worn his brown pants cheered him somewhat and let out a soft breath. "We'll get through this," he said.
