Melinda follows behind with her hands stuck in her pockets, still grumpy from the way this guy had been treating her. "I got a question for you," she grumbles. "Are you afraid to fight with a girl? Is that it?"

"I'd expect you to be a little more grateful considering I saved you life not three minutes ago, but I've dealt with unreasonably bullheaded people before." His voice lowers to a growl once more. "And I'm not afraid of a high school student. If I were younger, I could kill someone in mere seconds... it'd take me a few minutes now."

"I'm not gonna be grateful until you give a damn about me," Melinda shoots right back, "instead of saving me just so you can treat me like dirt! For a hero, you sure are a real jerk."

"Enough."

Lawrence steps between Melinda and the stranger.

"Now, killing is kind of... well extreme. If we were going to take this guy down, shouldn't we bring him to the proper authorities? Besides, won't this just make the, um, 'Awesome Squad' come after us even more?"

Donovan grumpily treks through the forest, broom in hand. He kind of lost the others after they sprinted ahead of him, his leg still somewhat numb from the electricity. Using the broom to push low branches out of the way, he continues his journey, glancing around somewhat nervously. He had to hit the deck rather violently as some of the explosions went off earlier, smearing his face and shirt with dirt.

After what seemed like hours (but in reality was just five minutes), Donovan heard voices. He carefully approached until he could hear them better. He really hoped it wasn't any of those 'Awesome Squad' guys. That would really suck. He relaxed when he heard Melinda's unmistakeable voice, pushing aside some of the underbrush to get to them.

"...Hey guys. Did ya miss me?"

"Donovan!" Melinda shouts, immediately forgetting about Mr. Beedle's intervention (thankfully before she spouted another quip about being able to handle herself and made the situation worse). "Where the heck have you been?"

The hooded man turns to Lawrence. "If you can come up with a way to safely detain someone capable of immense magical power, let me know. Considering these guys have probably been responsible for or might be responsible for hundreds of deaths, they're probably better off dead."

He pauses, thinking about the second part of the question. "True, although it's best to probably bring them out into the open. Any secret organization doesn't work when it's not secret."

"I -" Lawrence goes to question the man further, but pauses. Now that he got started, he really did want to flex his magical muscles. Or hell, even his regular fighting muscles would ease his anxiousness now. It had been too long since he actually got to, after all. "- alright. I guess I can accept that. That being said..."

He turns to Donovan and Melinda.

"Alright, we're going to try and take this guy down, but we can't do it alone. We'll try to hold him off. Melinda, Donovan, do you think you can run and get Arther, Otto, Oren, and especially that SWAT captain? Tell them we've got the leader distracted here but need help."
