Colossus and Toad Escape, for now.
Closing his eyes Toad just grins as he's carried on back towards the cell where Colossus was guarding. The soldier grins evily looking down at Toad, "This guy'll setcha straight!". Hooking Toad up to the wall the soldier laughs and looks at Piotr with a grin. "Keep them in thier place!" And with that the Soldier leaves the room. "What da 'eck? What's 'e mean by dat Pete?" Toad raising an eyebrow looks over at him. "Why Ain'tcha in ya restraints??"
Mutate 181, previously known as Piotr Rasputin, looked down at Toad. His metal eyes are cold and hard, and shining red. "there is no more 'Pete' I am now only Mutate 181." he said as he reached down and lifted toad up, his nearly circling toad's waist. "and you, mutant, are being too load." he said, pressing his fist closed slightly for emphasis.
Toad gives a shriek as he's squished slightly. "Y-yo, c'mon Pete, buddy, wh-whatcha doin dis for? I'm ya friend...r-rememba? Ya saved me from quite a few things before..an I helped you out!" Forgetting at the moment what that was, but still, heh, he thought he did. "Remember? We was jus' paintin' wit each otha the otha day before we was captured!"
face did not change its hardened look as Toad told him these things. He did not say anything this time, just reached up with his other hand and took Toads chains off of the wall in one swift motion, which also took the bolt they were tied to and a small chunk of the wall, and then he turned, toad in one hand and the chain and wall bit in the other, and he moved to just out side of the cell area. His face was grim and set as he looked at toad.
Toads face struck a gasp and he looked like he was about to piss his pants. Holy crap, one thing he never wanted to happen was about to. Piotr had grabbed the chain from the wall and him, not a very good thing for him at all. Moving his hand to over his head in protection of it. Just grerat, just perfect, what had they done to his buddy? Those disgusting pissy humans would really pay for this now. Wait'll he got his legs back in gear, oh just you wait. "I-i promise, I wun do anythin', yo!"
M-181 lifted the chain that was connected to toad's wrists and let go of his with this other hand, letting toad drop a bit, but noting hitting the ground. As M-181 staired down at Toad he said, "if you say you wont do anything, then why do you still speak? mutants should know their place, and not speak until spoken too!" M-181 let the chian slip in his metal grip, letting toad hit the ground this time.
"Your a mutant too though..! And besides, gets kinda lonely in dere ya know..? I ain't gots anyone ta talk to an yer my bud, remember?" Toad smirks and offs wincing as his crushed legs hit the ground. "Ow ow ow..." He frowns and hugs places his hands on his legs getting slightly grossed out from the feel. "What'd they do to yas Pete...? Ya not like ya used ta be...caring...kind...protective...Ya nothin' but a ...big...Bully!" Toad smirks once more.
"They have fixed me. They have made me see what i should be. the hound for the hunted," he says as he drops the bit of the wall next to toad, but oddly enough, not on him. "they made me realize that i am not human, but an animal under their control, here to serve them as all beasts must serve their masters." M-181 snarled out as he lifted toad up again, this time by wraping his gigantic metal hand around toad's back.
"Naw man, ya ain't a beast, ya ain't a monsta, ya notta animal! Ya a living intelligent person like da rest a us! They didn't fix ya, they ruined ya! Like they ruined me, you were more human den they were!! Look it what they've done ta me, yo..!" Toad frowns and lifts his legs up them flopping like stuff. "No infact us mutants ah betta den them humans, why? Cause were more civil then they are!" Snorting Toad folds his arms and shakes his head. "Most of us anyways...I can't brag on my half...I've done wrong...I'm not afraid ta pay fa what 'i've done...but them othas...They dun deserve any a this, yo." He lets out a sigh
M-181 snarls and presses in on the back of toad's ribs. "How dare you speak of us as better than the humans! I have seen what mutants have done! they have slaughter hundreds on this very island, and then claimed it as their own!" He holds toad so that they are looking face to face, the unholy red of his changed eyes shining brightly in a nameless rage.
Toad frowns and shakes his head in a no manner. "No, only two mutants....You've got one of them in your hands Pete. The otha was Magneto....You should let the other mutants go. It was mine and Magnetos fault, Ya wanna pay us back fa what we did..? Kill us then...I'm willin' ta sacrafice myself fa the rest of 'em...as long as ya let 'em free......Can you do that Pete....can you kill someone like me...?"
"kill you, yes, let the others go, no. they will all be shown how evil they are and how they should obey their human masters." m-181 says matter of factly. "And my name is Mutate 181!" he said, shaking toad as he said it.
"Heh, you'll never be able to kill me..." Toads head hands down, his hair covering most of his face up. There is however a crack of open hair allowing one eye to peek through. His eye narrowed with an evil psychotic grin on his face. "Try it, I dare ya. I'm one hard ass bastard to get rid a...yain't gettin' rid a Toad dat easily yo.."
M-181 does as toad asks, he tries to kill him. he brings up his free hand and places it over toads face while the other hand keeps toad from struggling.
Toad just closes his eyes and lets him do that. "I'm sorry, Tovarsich....neva ment ta cause this for yas...it's my fault..." he mumbles out before his face is covered.
the hand supporting toad's weight slackens it's grip a bit, efectivly pulling his away from his hand covering toads mouth and nose, but he freezes in place like that
"I hope in the end of alla dis, you'll be ok..." Toad tries to pull off the best saddened, I don't care eyes he has. "I hope you'll find happiness, yo.." His words mummbled but probably clear to him.
The haunting red glow of Piotr's eyes begin to fade, returning to it's soft blue white, his hand that was resting just above toads face shifted to rest slowly on his chest. "T-todd?" he asks softly.
Toads eyes get big and looks at Piotrs eyes taking in a great deal of air. "P-pete, buddy that you...?" He tilts his head to the side looking very very hopeful.
"Da, Todd, it is...wh-what has happened to me?" Piotr asked looking around, seeing toad in his metal hands and the chain and wall bit still hanging from his wrists, and then around behind him to the other chain and caged mutants. He shifted toad in his hands to hold him in a position that would be more comfortable for him. "what has happened?" piotr asked again
"It' is you bud!" Toads face brightens up really big and grabs onto his friend hugging him tightly. "Lots, yo! We've all been captured by these stinkin' humans! They've locked us up and tortured us...you..were about ready ta kill me I think. I provoked ya ..cause..I knew ya wouldn'..like..kill me or nothin!" He smiles and frowns looking to his legs. "I can't walk...or hop..mys legs are busted yo...totally gone...They've tortured me lotsa.." He could probably tell that just by looking at his shitty looks.
Just then, a few of the human soldiers walked into the area and spotted Piotr and Toad.
"Mutate 181! what are you doing?!" one of them barked.
with out turning around, piotr hardened his voice and said, "I am teaching this mutant scum to stay quiet when he is told to, sir."
The soldiers laughed, "good! make sure he can't ever talk again!" the one said as they turned around and left again.
Piotr signed slightly and looked down at toad. "Even with broken legs, you are still of much improtance," he said as he crushed toads collar and pulled it off of him. "now, what do you think you can do about mine?" he said moving back into the cell area and holding toad up to get a better look at his own collar.
Toad grins and spits gunk up at the cieling very very happy to have that working. "Aight, yo! Lemme get dat thing offa yas!" Toad examines it and finds the button leaning forward and pressing it. "Check it, yo! Ya free!" Smirking he hands Piotr the collar. "...If imma go wit my plan, yo, I needa get my legs fixed." Giving a soft sigh Toad looks around at the other mutants. "Maybe you can take me into the ER room!" His face brightens again an evil grin crossing his face afterwards. "Pretend to be under thier stuff still and then tell 'em Ya need my legs fixed cause Iii'mmm..going to...GO after the other mutants!! Yea' dats it!" Nodding ohhh Toad was a clever little guy he was.
Piotr looked back down at the collar and then up at toad, and then puts the collar back on, but does not lock it in place. "please for give me for what i am about to do," he says as he flips toad over his shoulder and heads off to the medical labs. "do not move, tovarisch, just hang there," he whispers to toad as they approach some soldiers. the men do not stop them as they continue on. no one stops them untill they reach the relative safty of the med lab.
"what are you doing?" a man dressed in a white lab coat asks as they walk in.
Piotr hardened his voice again and said, "this one is going to be another hunter. but his legs, which were his primary weapon, have been destroyed. i was told to bring him here."
The man signed, "another hunter...very well, place him on the table and wait over there," he said pointing to a corner where nothing else was. As piotr stood there, he watched as the man called other technicians in and what looked like surgons. they made sure Toad was not going to wake up and then started on his legs.
Toad goes along with everything very thankful to Piotr, He owed him quite alot. Before he knew it he was out cold and already being worked on. It wouldn't be until a few hours later that he woke up. Slowly opening his eyes he places his hands on his head. "Nyaww..wh-whas' goin' on, yo?" Toad sits up and looks around a little trying to remember where he was at.
The fist doctor from early sighs as he hears toads call, "It's going to be ok. we had to replace you lower legs, they were a total loss I'm afraid. But we've givving you bionic implants that should work just as well, if not better. hunting other mutants down will be easyer for you at any rate now." the doc said as he motioned to piotr. "take him back to the cell area and watch him! I've already let the soldiers know that you're going to be doing this for me, so don't listen to them if they tell you to do somethiing else, you got that? this mutate is now your number one concern!" Piotr nodded and lifted toad carefuly off the bed and took him back to the cell area with no incident.
"How do you feel"? Piotr asked as he reached up and took his collar off and crushed it.
Grinning really big Toad moves his now bionic lower legs and grins. "Lemme have a test at dese an I'll letcha know!" Hopping from Piotrs hands he leaps -alot- farther then he could normal. Turning and looking at Piotr he gives a big grin and thumbs up. "I owes yas!" Toad folds his arms and feels like he could take on the world once more. "So here's my plan...You head off ta search for Logan and tha othas...They like you, yer on thier side as far as they know. Imma seak off afta the brothahood an Magneto. They know me betta and as someone on Thier side." Seeing some soldiers headed thier way he gets that cold heartless look on his face, his eyes going red. It's how he had to pretend to be for everything to work. "Excuse me, your excellence..but when do we get to hunt these others mutants...?" An evil grin forming, a blood thirsty look for the mutants coming to his face. Toad was a good actor, that he was.
The soldiers look at Piotr and toad, then look at eachother smiling. "We were just coming to find some mutates to send out on a test run for hunting their fellow's. Looks like you two just volenteered!" They told pior and Toad what to do and set the loose to 'terrorize' their fellow mutants. Once they were far enough away from the base, piotr croutched dwn and looked at toad. "Good luck to you Todd." He said ith a nod towards toad.
"You too bud, I'll see ya soon 'nough aight? Take care!" Toad smiles and and gives a wave leaping off towards the direction of Magnetos place. He grins and gives a small 'woowhoo' as he leaps alot farther and with more power in his legs then he ever had, it's not long at all before he's out of sight.
