The call came and at first there was only light breathing on the line. Nervous breathing. "Hello?" The accent is probably more familiar than the voice. "You said I could call if something happened." The a flurry of hissed whispers like the caller is telling someone off nearby and does not want to be heard. "I am in…Brooklyn. They are here" the voice insists quietly, like it was afraid to speak too loudly. "I am outside restaurant…'Indian Duck'. Come. Come quick, Hero."

***

Nyx was dozing lightly, she can't seem to manage real sleep lately, but the call wakes her up and she answers the phone, she listens t othe girl on the other end "Okay.. Im in the Bronx but I'll head there as fast as I can." god knows what the crazy mutant is on about. Could be terrorists or nothing from what Nyx can tell. Still she suits up, getting her mask on the way out the dor and catching an expess train down to Brooklyn. She can't fly though and doesn't have a quinjet so it does take a bit fo time to get to Brooklyn. She uses the time to look up an Indian Duck and figure out how to get there. She does the best she can to hurry.

***

It is late when Nyx finds the restaurant…it was late when Wanda rang. Snow gently falling to the ground. A chill wind seeping through the streets despite the warmth generated from millions of people in thousands of cars and buildings. Wanda stands at the entrance to an alleyway across the street from the restaurant. When she spots Nyx she makes a gesture to follow her and then turns and slips into the darkness of the alley. She doesn't look any healthier than before and some may even confuse her for a ghost at first glance.

***

Nyx is only wearing her hoodie and her ripped up jeans, her mask still stuffed in her pocket. She eyes the building making sue she is in the right spot for a moment before spotting Wanda "Right…" she takes off across the street heading to see what is up.

***

Wanda waits in the darkness, her hair and clothes wet from the snow, dark rings around her staring eyes. She nods to an unseen voice before addressing the arriving hero. "The restaurant. It is not what it seems" she explains. "The people inside are not people. They are monsters. You should go in and do something about it." Another nod to an unheard voice before she whispers, "I told her that." The fingers of Wanda's hands start to twitch and spasm, absently drawing shapes in the air.

***

Nyx rubs her face a little bit as she listens to this "Monsters… I can do something about monsters sure… can you give me a bit more to go on … what sort of monsters… demons.. ghosts… ghouls… aliens… what are we stomping on?" if they are even monsters.

***

"Does it matter?" Wanda replies, tilting her head to study Nyx for a moment. Then she looks past Nyx and points towards the restaurant. "There. See." She moves past the superhero to crouch at the end of the alley, still in darkness as a laughing couple emerge from the 'Indian Duck'. "Do you see?" she asks insistently. "Do you see?"

***

Nyx tilts her head and steps out to te edge of the alley to study the couple as they walk out. She studies them intently, but she has no special senses other than normal girl eyesight. "I don't have your voices .. be they spirit or telepathy." she points out "What am I looking for?"

***

Wanda is a bit surprised that Nyx has just stepped out into the open like that. Doesn't she see it? It's obvious! Her fingers twitch faster and she mutters something in a strange language and the male half of the couple trips over a crack in the pavement and stumbles to the ground. And just for a moment the mask slips. Where once was a smiling human face is now a snarling visage that looks like his skin has been inverted and muscles and veins are on the outside. Then it is gone again as he is helped up by the woman.

***

Nyx is a hero, she steps into stupid ass situations all the time these days. She watches the trip and then her eyes widen "Oh." she thinks though everyone she knows, which isn't much. X-Men Red… Hawkeye… no no… Well her mentor would know what the hell is going on. She eases back into the alley "How many of those things are there?"

***

"I don't know. I haven't been inside" Wanda replies before she is distracted by a snowflake melting on the wall beside her. "They are not nice" she offers. "They do not let people leave." A pause. "Not as people anyway." Her eyes turn towards the couple walking off down the street. "But you are hero…you know what to do."

***

Nyx nods "Right… okay… I may need you to call this number if this goes really sideways… or hell all three of these numbers." she scribbles down three phone numbers. Nightmare Tokyo - Bobby Drake - Hawkeye. "Right then.. I guess I go in for some Indian Duck and we have a fun old time… um… do you know how many not humans have come out of there so far?"

***

Wanda takes the numbers and stares at them like they are incomprehensible hieroglyphics before she stuffs them in her jacket pocket. "I am coming too" she notes. "I am hero." There is even a smile at that announcement before she suddenly glares at something unseen. "I am. She said so" she hisses as she stands and moves next to Nyx. "Four not humans" she replies before stepping straight out to cross the street and head for the restaurant.

***

Nyx notes "Counting the two picking themselves up..?" she steps out too now eyeing the building and the couple and then she also angles to intercept the couple who just left the Indian Duck. "Hey you two, hold up right there." no mask yet, if she is wrong she doesn't want them to think she is mugging tem

***

Wanda follows along behind Nyx with her pale skin and staring eyes. Nyx may not look like a mugger but Wanda certainly looks like a beggar. The couple stop and peer at Nyx before looking decidedly unsettled by Wanda. "What do you want?" asks the man, moving himself subtly in front of the woman. The woman has her phone out and is speed dialing…probably the authorities.

***

Nyx saw the stumble in the mask though, she pivots to the side moving forcefully and reaching out and snags the phone and crushes it in her hand as it if were a Styrofoam cup. "Noooo none of that. So my very odd friend here says you are a couple of monsters…. and so far the evidence is pretty convincing. Want to tell me what you two and your two friends are before we take this to the next level?"

***

The pair step back from Nyx, glaring at her with a mixture of fear and hatred. "Monsters? You're mad. We're not monsters." The man jabs a finger towards Wanda. "/That/ is the monster! And if you do not destroy her now then you will be lost! Everyone will be lost!" They now snarl at Nyx. "We have done nothing wrong. Back off!"

***

Nyx positions herself in between them and Wanda and shakes her head "No I don't think so. I've seen your true face and I don't like it one bit. You get a chance to tell me what you things are and why your messing with the people in my town… so get talking." she doesn't seem very phased by the snarling.

***

"We are doing nothing to the people of this stinking cesspool" Claws grow from their fingers. Their visages turning into the inside out sight Nyx briefly saw before. "Leave us be and we shall be on our way. Attack us and you will be responsible for the consequences."

***

Nyx waggles her fingers at them "Cesspool.. then why even bother to be in the town if it is cesspool. Seriously what the hell have you down with the people who go in there and don't come out of your Indian Duck. Because I am going in there next and finding out. I'm just not sure what to do after I thump you monsters… call SHIELD or the SRD…. who locks up monsters."

***

Wanda is muttering softly to herself, fingers working overtime, and then suddenly the couple are leaping at Nyx, violence in their eyes. Her threats have become too much. But, unfortunately for them, there seems to be ice on the sidewalk as both of them lose their footing and are sent sprawling to the ground with heavy thuds and cracking ribs. With dazed eyes they look up at Nyx and struggle to regain their senses.

***

Nyx looks down surprised at the Ice, then up and around looking for Bobby, then back over her shoulder to shoot Wanda a grin "Oh knock it off… Jesus." she carefully cross slaps both of the monsters trying to bop their heads together and knock them out without exploding them. She is treating them like human in this scenario still, not sure how fast they heal or how durable they truly are.

***

Smashing their heads together seems to have achieved something…namely their now unconscious state. Wanda watches them for a moment before a maniacal grin appears on her face and she starts skipping towards the restaurant. "More in here. More in here" she sings to herself in a lullaby lilt before opening the door and stepping inside.

***

Nyx crouches down and zipties the two monsters securing them tightly at the wrists, ankles, and then to each other. "Wait!" she calls and starts to head after Wanda into the Indian Duck hoofing it to catch up.

***

Wanda doesn't stop. By the time Nyx is there she is standing in the center of the restaurant looking for all the world like a bum who wandered in off the street…which she is. What is more unusual is the circle of six…things…around her. Snarling. Clawing in her direction. Wanda looks like she is in Disneyland while the creatures look…scared.

***

Nyx steps in through the door after her and takes this all in "Right…. enough of this" she taps a table next to her flipping it up into her hand and chucks it hard at the couple of creatures to the right, catching two of them solidly with the furniture "You were off by four!"

***

Wanda giggles at the sight of flying tables slamming into two of the creatures, looking back to grin at Nyx. "So strong" she gasps playfully, her fingers moving rapidly and drawing shapes in the air next to her. Two of the creatures start running for the kitchen and the back door beyond but suddenly the lights of the restaurant blow out as one and that is soon followed by the sound of bodies falling to the ground as they trip over furniture.

***

Really rally hopes these monsters aren't innocent mutants or some such she is cracking tables over. She heads in closer now picking up a chair to crack over one of the ones on the left who didn't break "You have no idea!" she squints as the lightning gets dark "Dangit…" she holds out her left arm and energy white and pure coils around her arm and light up the room once more. "Better… damnit I need like night vision or thermal goggles…." she looks around trying to figure out who to shoot or bash still.

***

There is another light too. A red glow from a ball of crackling energy Wanda holds in her hand. Her gaze seems more absent than usual even as her eyes are locked up one the last of the beasties. Then her arm whips through the air and the energy slams into the creature, burning away its flesh as it screams and falls to the ground. Wanda shakes her head as if awakening from sleep and looks back at Nyx. "Monsters' she whispers before giggling and making her way slowly towards the kitchen.

***

Nyx uhms and steps over, smacking a couple of the downed ones to knock them unconscious the checks the sizzled one to see if it is dead or not "Right monsters…. " Christ then she is heading to the kitchen, the energy on her forearm and hand still sizzling there unreleased.

***

The lights flicker back on…must have been a temporary blackout…and Wanda wafts into the kitchen without a care in the world. The two creatures that tripped in the dark are moaning softly and holding their heads. The scarlet clad woman looks back at Nyx with a 'knock them out' look in her eyes. Grabbing a cloth she lifts off the lid of a simmering pot and frowns at the contents. "Human head' she explains lightly…and sure enough, there is a human head cooking away inside.

***

Nyx leans to look at the human head in the pot, and looks like she may be ill, definitely a bit green around the gills now. Her hand dips and she fires the energy blast at the two on the floor. Despite her anger and suddenly upset stomach she is still pulling her punches. Full strength she could blow a tank apart… so this is … eeeeh a couple percent of full strength. Enough to probably concuss them and knock them truly senseless "Fuck!"

***

Wanda is already thinking of the future as she makes her way to the cupboards and starts helping herself to the food within. Bread. Biscuits. Vegetables. The kind of stuff that can't possibly be previous customers at the restaurant. She hopes.

***

Nyx mutters some serious cursing as she ducks down and starts to zip tie the monsters up "how strong are these things.. I mean they seem pretty easy to knockout but can they get free easy.. crap … fuck" she has no idea what she is doing but she hogties the ones in the kitchen then goes to get the others now "argh"

***

"I dunno" Wanda shrugs to Nyx's question. "I only saw them today." A sharp turn of her head towards and unheard voice. "Today. It was only today" she hisses before stuffing more food into her overladen pockets. "What will you do with them?" she asks, even showing some genuine curiosity.

***

Nyx ducks out to the street and drags the two others in, one had each like they are weightless despite her small frame. "Probably call the SRD and let the deal with it…." she makes sure they are well and truly out cold then fishes out a burner cellphone "I'd like to report some inhuman clawed monsters at Indian Duck in Brooklyn at <address> they are eating people.. Cooking them… a vigilante just took them all down trussed them up and when unconscious they lose their human disguise…. lots of human cooking on the stove. I'd bring a serious response team. Thanks" she flips it closed and drops it by the pile of trussed monsters "The Special Response division guys will deal with them… I just have no clue what you do with monsters like this… I'll have to ask Hawkeye and we should bail now."

***

"Hawkeye?" Wanda asks as she follows Nyx outside. "Is he a hero too? Like Bobby? All the heroes you know…must be nice." The street resident is already eagerly eating the food stolen from the restaurant. Crumbs dropping all over her clothes and the wet street. "You are very strong. How did you get like that?"

***

Heads out and looks around then ducks across to an alley and starts o cut away from the Indian Duck before SRD swoops in hard. "It is really complicated.' she digs around in her pants peels off another three hundred dollars and hands it to you "Hero pay." she notes very serious "We stopped monsters today very good hero work." she grins "I need to get back up town.. call me if you run into more monsters okay?"
