Dean Winchesters Baby Girl: Thanks. Sorry this isn't soon enough.

In his prison room, Curtis continued to look around. He had to figure out where he was. But how? Nothing looked familiar. His eyes narrowed thoughtfully. There had to be a way out. Suddenly, he picked up coming footsteps and his eyes flashed golden. I need to figure out what they plan to do with me, he realized. The door opened to reveal the men who had taken him from his home. Curtis dropped into a defensive stance and the men chuckled sinisterly.
"Do you really think you can defeat us, boy?" one of the men asked condescendingly. The two came at him and faster than they had anticipated, the boy flipped backwards and then snaked out a leg out, knocking them off of their feet. However, the men quickly jumped to their feet and pounced on Curtis. The boy began to fight, but they tightened their grip and forced him closer to the ground. They struggled with him and one of them men reached behind him and all of a sudden, he felt something in the back of his neck. He cried out in pain and the men released him, watching him writhe on the floor.
"What did you just do?" Curtis groaned as his fingers reached up to his neck to feel a sort of metal sticking out of his neck.
"Subdermal governor. You can't use your powers unless we allow you to," one of the men replied. Curtis stood up shakily. He started for them, but a click from the governor made him cry out in pain as he fell to his knees. "Like I said, boy, you can always use your powers when we let you." He groaned again and the men laughed. This was a good start. Now if they could just take care of the other problem mutants, everything would be great. In the van, Emma gasped as another image hit her. Curtis struggled, trying to break his chains as electricity crackled all around him.
"Guys! We have to hurry!" she shouted.
"Emma, what is it? What's wrong?" Adam asked in concern.
"I just got an image of Curtis wrapped in chains. The last time I got an image like that, Brennan had just been slapped with a subdermal governor," Emma explained. Adam subtly revved his engine and the Mutant X team shared an anxious look. That wasn't good.
"Daddy?" Casey asked softly.
"Don't worry, Casey. We'll save him. I won't let Genomex use him," Brennan assured, placing a comforting hand on her wrist. Casey gave her father a relieved grin. He'd save Curtis. He'd make everything okay again. She inhaled and exhaled sharply. She just had to keep calm. She wouldn't do Curtis any good if she freaked out. Oh, just hang on, baby. We're coming, she thought to herself. After what seemed to be several hours, they finally reached the address that Emma had seen. As one, they all got out of the car and silently sneaked towards the entrance. Adam used silent hand signals to instruct the team to surround the building. They did so and entered through various doors. Inside, the men heard a blaring siren.
"Someone's broken in!" Fowler shouted. "Norris, you're staying with the freak," he snapped. Then, he and Darren left the room as Fowler conveyed what was going on through an earpiece. Curtis reached towards the metal sticking in his neck and tried to pull it out to no avail. Man! I want this thing out! he thought to himself. He also wanted to find out what had happened to his mother and then go home. Mainly though, he just wanted to go home. He didn't want to be treated like a freak anymore. After all, he wasn't a freak. He was just different. Something these idiots apparently didn't understand. Then, he heard the sounds of faint fighting. What in the world? he wondered. Who had broken in? Well, whoever it was, he hoped they knew that there was someone in here. He headed for the door. Seeing this, Norris quickly got in front of him.
"You can't get out without going through me. And I control your powers," he smirked.
"Like I need my powers to defeat you?" Curtis shot back. Without warning, Norris lunged at him, knocking him down. For a few minutes, each fought to gain the upper hand. Then, Curtis brought up a knee, hitting the man in the stomach. The agent groaned as Curtis quickly rolled over and then jumped to his feet. Before the man had a chance to recover, the boy lashed out with a kick, hitting him in the back. Then, he delivered a karate chop to back of the man's head, knocking him out. Silently, Curtis followed the sounds. When he finally made it to the front of the building, he was surprised to see Casey, her parents, and their friends fighting, Fowler, Darren, and some other men. Well, why should they have all the fun? He wondered and then ran into the fray.
"Hey! The freak's escaped!" Fowler shouted. Immediately, he and the other agents spread out and headed for the boy. They weren't going to let their prisoner escape. Seeing the men heading for her boyfriend, Casey let her eyes go completely gold and she flipped through the air and then landed in front of Curtis, taking a defensive stance.
"Silly little girl. You have no idea just who you're messing with," Fowler said condescendingly.
"Funny. I was just about to say the same thing to you," Casey shot back.
"Sounds like someone needs to be put in her place," Darren stated, taking out a subdermal governor and heading for her. Seeing this, Brennan's eyes flashed and he summoned electricity to his hands and then thrust it at the man who screamed at the impact. This seemed to be a signal for Casey, Curtis, and the Mutant X team. They immediately attacked the agents and led them away from one another. The GSA Agents all fought their best, but were no match for the mutants. When the fight was finally over, the GSA agents lay in a heap with the mutants standing over them.
"Curtis! Oh, I was so worried!" Casey sighed, hugging her boyfriend.
"I was pretty scared myself," Curtis admitted. "So, how do we get this thing out of me?" he wondered, gesturing to the subdermal governor.
"I've got the tools in the van," Adam replied.
"Great. Could you call my mom and tell her we're on the way home?" Curtis requested.
"Of course," Adam replied and they went out of the building and back to the van. They all got inside the vehicle; Adam started the engine, and drove off as Casey dialed Curtis' home number.
"Hey, Mrs. Valentine. We've found Curtis and we're bringing him home," she reported. She listened for a few minutes. "Yeah, he's fine and anxious to see you." As they drove back to Curtis' home, Jesse delicately used the tools that had been in a black bag to grab the subdermal governor and gently take it out of the boy's neck.
"All right. That should do it," Jesse told him. "Now, you'll probably have a sore neck for a while," he continued.
"Hey, as long as I can use my powers without writhing in pain, I'm good," Curtis responded. After a while, they reached Curtis' house. Seeing the van from her living room window, Lorraine dashed out of her house and towards the vehicle. The car had barely stopped before Curtis unbuckled himself and ran up the drive.
"Curtis! Thank goodness you're okay!"
"Hey, Mom." Casey smiled. Things were relatively good. They had rescued Curtis and had reunited him with his mother.
"Dad, what about the guys who attacked the Valentine's? They're probably long gone by now, so what are we going to do?" Casey wondered.
"We're taking care of them. Don't worry about that," Brennan responded.
"Good," Casey approved, her eyes flashing gold. These guys weren't going to get away with what they had done. She'd see to it even if she had to do it alone.
"Come on. Let's go." With one last glance at her boyfriend and his mother, Casey followed the others to the car, got in, and buckled up as Adam started driving back in the direction they had come from. As they did so, the team discussed different strategies for handling the group, and as they talked, Casey's eyes shone a brilliant gold. Genomex was going to pay for what they had done to the Valentine's. She'd make sure of that, no matter what….
