Mark swallowed slightly, taken by the woman's internal (and external) beauty as well as the sheer amount of excitement that had just occured. "Mark Cohen." he said, a little stunned, wiping his sweaty hands on his jeans before reaching up to shake her hand. "It's a pleasure to meet you Dr. Grey, I've read some of your essays."

The game behind them had taken on a different tone. The girl who'd been sitting next to Pietro was taking on a new vengence as she tried to remove as many players from the game and into the jail zone as possible. Not to be outdone, "John" and the girl who had phased through the tree had ganged up to try and stop her. Although it was not readily apparent how their powers would work together, it seemed that they knew what to do. They beckoned for another girl, who was wearing long white gloves. She dutifully removed her gloves and for the breifest of seconds touched both students who shuddered. Then, gloves still removed, she nodded to "John" who started a fire, which she controlled as it snaked around the girl and phased in and out of the trees so she was literally stuck where she stood.

The girl looked incredibly annoyed, and decided to wait momentarily until she could think of a better plan. As she did, the girl who had been plotting with John snuck in a long path around until she was behind her. Kitty phased through the fence of fire, solidfying just behind Wanda and touching her shoulder with a smug grin.

"Gotcha." She crowed, and Wanda growled, but dutifully let Kitty phase her back through the fire and headed for the jail on the other side. Almost instantly, though, a young boy dropped from the tree above Kitty, hanging from the branches by his knees as he tapped her on the head.

"Got you back," he countered, and Kitty grumbled something incoherant as she jogged towards the appropriate jail.

A tall boy on the same side as John and Kitty was slowly creeping across the border, farther into the forest than everyone else. Jamie paused a few feet in, closing his eyes in concentration. Suddenly, he multiplied, with close to twenty identical boys standing around him. They spread out, each creeping through the trees until they reached nearly halfway across. A few younger students spotted some of them and ran forwards to tag them, only to have their hand pass right through the fakes. The real one was lost admist his doubles to the observers, as they all slowly progressed, fading as they were 'caught' by other students.

Bobby and Piotr had gathered a few students on their side, and were quietly plotting something in a small group protected by an ice barrier. Mark saw a boy with no mouth erecting a sheild of glowing energy in front of a few of the dopplegangers creeping across the field. He didn't call out, but another boy, smaller, and with glasses, turned around as if he'd been called from where he was perched in a tree. In a flash of light, he started appearing in front of any dopplegagner of Jamie he could see to tag them.

Something near the small boy with glasses caught Mark's eye, and he saw a dark, furry shape crawling silently through the forest, yellow eyes locked on the students around it as it crawled towards the huddled group of kids in the team's jail.
