After this. In the morning, they meet up with Angel and send her on her way to DC with a train ticket and the news that Moira and possibly Raven will meet her at the train station. There had been time to give them a call and arrange it all before Charles picked up a car to get to them to where Alex Summers is being held.

Moira and Agent Black have provided a few ways in, but it all depends on if they can convince Alex that he'll be safe with them. Charles isn't looking forward to going into a prison but this is what they need to do.

Erik had known that perhaps some of the mutants they saw would be in difficult conditions, but he hadn't prepared himself for this. He's quiet on the way to the prison, thinking that at least this won't be anything like the prison that held him as a child. No, there is nothing so inhumane in the world anymore. "How long until we arrive?" he asks curtly.

Charles is the one who's been given a chance to look into the mind of the mutants and Erik must simply trust in him. "What's he like?" he asks, a common question on this trip. "Summers?" He doesn't ask what he'd done to get himself in prison, but he's close to it.

Erik feels the tenseness in his jaw, unable to help himself. He hates that he feels so out of control, but at the same time, he had been different. He hadn't been able to access his power at all. "And you think they'll let us leave with him?"

So they're actually going to waltz right into a prison and take a young boy out, only to test his powers and give him a new life. It's frighteningly similar to Erik's own story and he feels a bit queasy for it, even knowing his intentions as he does. "And if he doesn't want to join us?"

Erik hopes that they're viewed as kind and as allies, not the enemies that they could come across as. "Be very careful," is all Erik has to say on this subject. "He's young and malleable, yet. We don't want to lead him down a path that might lead to something worse than this."

Erik allows Charles to take over. He couldn't do much that wouldn't be overly aggressive and he's hardly in the mood for it, feeling rather like he's stepped back in time. Charles doesn't seem too pleased either, so Erik reaches across the seat to grip his hand, briefly.

Erik follows after Charles, keeping a slow gait to make sure that he isn't charging ahead. "What can he do?" he asks quietly, so the guards don't overhear him as he speaks.

Well, that's certainly a potentially dangerous talent. The more that Erik learns about the boy, the more he thinks he knows a great deal about him without even having met him yet. "He would be an advantage to have on our side," is his reply, not wanting to think of them as soldiers, but unable to help himself.

Erik follows casually, not even bothering to listen to the man talking now. His only concern is on the boy inside and of what they might be able to offer him. When they pull open the door, the boy raises his head and Erik's first thought is relief to see how old he is -- so much older than Erik had been.

"Summers, I take it," Erik notes.

"We're here to offer you an opportunity," Erik says, careful with his choice of words. "You're not alone, Alex. There are others like you, others who have abilities. People who understand how to manage their lives with them." He's trying not to force Alex into the choice, but it's a close thing.

Erik doesn't speak up to that. There are times, yet, when he cannot find the control he so seeks and it has haunted him in his inability to get to Shaw. Still, he hasn't hurt anyone without meaning to in years, so Charles is correct on that score. "And I'm certain the lodgings are far nicer than these."

Erik's heard that before. Erik's even said that before. He pays little mind to the attitude and allows Charles and Alex to lead the way, a calm smile upon his face as he thinks this a success. "Well, if it doesn't work, I'm sure they'll keep your room available."

Erik's replying look is calm, with an edge of a smirk. After all, it's hardly as if Alex would want to be coddled. At least, that's his assumption. "I'm sure it won't come to that," he adds, as though he needs to clarify.
