Mary sort of stumbled backwards for a second, as her brain cleared for a moment as she looked at where they were and what needed to happen. Namely, where they needed to go. "Where to now?"
she ended up calling upwards towards Rocket, since he clearly knew what it was that they needed to do and where to go.
"Now main control room, the watch tower, entrance is up a few more levels from here," came his response as he started firing off the gun that was in his hands. His very first shot went straight through one of the guards, "Well didn't expect that one." he couldn't help but comment. "Up a few floors higher from there huh?"
she mused, glancing upwards. Her shield was holding up somewhat at the moment, but the guards were starting to fire off even more. Plus there wasn't any guarantees that Bethany would be accurate with her travel heading someplace they haven't really seen before. She could just barely make out a few guards on that balcony, meaning that they'd have to take those guys out first. "We need to get up there now to start clearing out the area, since otherwise we'd have to keep fighting our way up there... And if we slow down the guys on the top level then they won't easily be able to head down the stairs to cause problems for the others... Hmmm... I've got an idea to get us up there now... It should work... I hope..."
She disconnected the tree branch from the wall of plant life, and glanced over at the other two. "Okay, I can see where we need to get to, or at least the level... So you might want to hold on,"
Mary said, before she held the branch pointed upwards, and a rather large vine shot out from it, soaring up and above their heads and attaching itself to the railing up there. The plant life started spreading as if to anchor it in place. More vines sort of shot out from the branch, this time anchoring the branch and vines around Mary's waist, as well as almost creating sort of shield that would move with her. "Well let's fly,"
she commented, before grabbing Guin by the arm with one hand, and Bethany's arm in her other, before all three of them shot straight upwards. The Nova Corps apparently despite their reputation in the galaxy could not hit anything worth a damn, and they went straight up and over the railing onto the ground on the level they needed to get to. "That honestly worked out better than I thought,"
she couldn't help but mutter to herself. Another thought crossed her mind, and a vine shot out once again and rather easily snatched a gun from one of the guards. "Hey Guin, want this?"
she asked, tossing it to her friend. "Pleasure to see you again as well,"
she said with a bit of a wave. Ed's shovel would be able to somewhat be able to shove people out of the way, but only partially, as there were a whole lot of people in the area, both prisoners and
guards. "I might have a bit of an explanation for what's going on, just give me a minute!"
She instantly swung her sword around in a bit of an arc, and a giant wave of water materialized as if out of nowhere, knocking for of them back, so there was now a semi-circle of sorts around them that was growing larger. Klara took a deep breath, her sword still up at the ready and she glanced back at the others, before looking at her cousin in particular. "Took me a while to get here not just because of the need to get a ship, but because I figured might as well do a little recon. The Nova Corps never arrest anyone for no reason, but from what I could tell you guys essentially were. No proof, no evidence a crime even took place, figured might as well ask around and figure out what the hell is going on. I'm not a hundred percent sure, but from what I can tell parts of space are getting completely destroyed, or there is evidence that something was being destroyed... Just not in our universe. That's the short version, once we get you all out of here I'll go more into detail then that. But apparently whatever is going on has got the Nova Corps majorly trigger happy, reason why they won't hesitate to shoot first and ask questions later right now."
"I mean for us it was because someone
was a greedy idiot!" Quill commented.
"Was not!" Rocket protested.
"Shut up both of you!" Now Gamora was clearly getting annoyed with the pair arguing, "Usually they at least listen to reason and you both know it. We offered to return the damn batteries that Rocket snatched, but they were a lot more on the side of not listening to anything, despite how many times we've helped them out of a pinch before, and just arrested us, and I don't even think they took back what got stolen," she explained, more or less going more into detail what had gotten their group locked up. I'm fine Guina, just probably shouldn't be racing around still... Also did I just see you all go flying past where we are and upwards to a different landing or whatever?
Pietro responded, and he couldn't help but ask the question. Everything was sort of going by in a bit of a blur for him.
Lance meanwhile was still more or less going on a bit of a rampage, though in this case it was definitely
to the groups benefit. Since even though he was sort of not in control at the moment, he did seem to get that they needed to head upwards. While Ed had managed to clear the way partially, Lance managed to clear the rest of the stairway upwards by throwing a few prisoners at the guards coming down and paving the way for the group to head to at least the next level. If they did things the smart way, they actually had a chance to reach where the other three were 2 floors up.
Speaking of the group that was now upstairs, they were a bit outnumbered, and Mary only a sort of makeshift wall to defend them, nothing really strong like the wall she had created downstairs. The blasts from the guards up where they were were not good, and Mary had made sure (without telling the other two) that the shielding was higher around them. Of course, this resulted in her ending up getting hit by a total of 4 of the many many shots that got fired at them. Luckily only 8 shots in total out of over two dozen fired actually hit them, which was something positive.
Mary definitely got the short end, since she got hit the worse because of how she had made her small shield, and several of the shots hit her in the chest, and one actually slammed into the side of her head, blood starting to mix in with her red hair. Two shots managed to break the shield over by Guin, one hitting her in her right shoulder, and another managing to hit her leg. The injuries would sting and burn like hell, but she'd be alright. The two shots that hit Bethany didn't exactly end the best either, one hitting her in the arm, another slamming directly into her knee, making it a little difficult to stand without there being a slight burning pain, but it wouldn't be too difficult. "You know... I've had worse,"
she commented before glancing over at the guards, and the vines that were around the group shot out and forward straight for the mob of guards by them, and they managed to slam into several of the guards near them. Mary was just staring, not moving from where she was as a few of the guards got thrown off the edge and down to the floor far below. It was almost like her powers had gotten a sort of defensive thing in case she got injured severely in order to hopefully not end up having her die or something. Since it seemed like she was only partially in control of what was going on, but it was sort of hard to tell. There ended up being a somewhat large circle around them that was free of guards. It gave them quite a bit of breathing room, but they should probably be prepared for more incoming.
