The Father Fears for His Child Cont. Location: The Guardian Base Mentioned: Adam & Tyler Lucien "Gone huh?" The words left Lucien as calm and quiet as could be. He stared at Adam silently, rage slowly building to the melting point inside of him. Then Tyler appeared, only to support Adam. Together, they had both failed, according to Tyler that was. Neither of them could have been prepared for the attack from Alkura, and as she spoke, Lucien's rage continued to boil up. He had entrusted to them the life of his daughter, her safety. He had asked them to bring her back because he couldn't do it, and yet, for all of that, for their experience, they had failed to bring her back. He opened his mouth to speak, but as he did so a great hacking coughing fit took over, and a sharp pain in his chest and a feeling of a sudden wetness seeping through the bandages there reminded Lucien that his wounds from the fight with Cal had not fully healed yet. The coughing fit continued for a short bit, and Lucien found himself stumbling to a nearby wall for support while he wheezed, gasping for breaths in between the coughs. However, once he was finished, he was drained. The energy, or what little he had left, was gone, and none of it had been spent on staying angry with either of them. As he leaned on the wall, he slumped slightly, before letting himself drop slowly to the ground. The look on his face was not of anger, not of rage, nor of hate, but instead of total defeat. His voice came out as barely more then a whisper as he spoke. "So that's it then huh? My daughter, the only family I have left, is gone...." Lucien reached into his suit jacket and pulled out his pack of cigarettes, but as he put one in between his lips and went to light the end per usual, he stopped, and then spit the cigarette out, finding his usual habit disgusting at this particular moment. He didn't look at either of the two, just stared at the wall opposite to him. His defeated tone remained as he spoke again. "Just.... Just go. I don't want to see either of you...."
