Alec boosted Cato's powers as much as he could, and looked back between the others.

Cato knocked them out of the way as best he could to clear the path into the shack.

Clemence didn't hesitate to start running inside to get Chris out of there. When she got through the threshold, she saw him on a table with another witch nearby.

Sunny was right on Clemence's heels as she ran. I suggest you leave before he wakes. What crap, she thought to herself. Chris would never hurt her. She knew that.

Andrew had his gun ready, just in case, and he didn't hesitste to point it at the witch once he was inside. "Just let us have our friend," he said slowly, "and we will leave without a problem."

The witch took one look at Andrew, then another one at Chris on the table. "Are you sure that's what you want?"

Chris's eyebrows scrunched up and he looked like he was having a fitful sleep. Suddenly, his eyes shot open and he sat up quickly, taking in deep gulps of air. His eyes were wide but unseeing as he got his bearings, but then his vision began to clear and he took in the scene around him, his eyes narrowing as he looked at his friends.

"Chris!" Ferris said with relief when he was awake and unrestrained, but his smile quickly fell when he saw how Chris looked at them and felt his emotions change from confusion to rolling waves of anger, all directed at them.

"Chris?" Sunny said softly, furrowing her brows. She didn't like that expression. She looked over at Ferris and furrowed her brows even more. "What's he feeling?" she asked him.

"Well, I'll leave you all to it, then." The witch smiled and sauntered out of the shed. The lock clicked into place behind her as she went.

"He's....mad," Ferris said softly and Chris's attention snapped to him.
"Yes, I am," he growled and stood up, looking for the exit.

"Because we took too long to get here?" Sunny frowned, even though she knew that was likely not it.

Andrew lowered his gun and turned the safety on. He wasn't going to shoot Chris again. Pistol whip him, maybe, if it came to it. But Andrew wasn't going to put another bullet hole in him.

Cole got to the door too late, and it was already locked.
"Fuck," he muttered, kicking and hitting the door, as if that could get it open.

"Like you don't know what you did," Chris scoffed at her and walked past, then eyed Andrew and the gun for a moment. His eyes narrowed and for a moment he looked like he was about to hit him, but Clemence reached out and grabbed his arm to stop him.

Ferris slipped back to try and fiddle with the lock to let Cole in, hoping the witches hadn't totally trapped them in there.

"No, I actually don't know what you're talking about," Sunny insisted, frowning again. She figured if she could keep him talking, she could get a better idea of what the witches had done to him.

Andrew took a step back and holstered the gun, figuring it might help diffuse the situation. "Whoa, easy. I'm not gonna shoot you."

Cole turned the knob, only growing more frustrated when the door wouldn't open.

Chris wrenched his arm away from Clemence and rubbed his wrist, glaring at Clemence before looking at Sunny. "I know you're not that dumb, sweetheart," he said, the nickname dripping with venom.

Ferris grit his teeth and continued messing with the lock, but then it came undone and he let out a triumphant 'aha'.

She winced and took a half step back at the nickname. "Maybe I'm just forgetful. Remind me."

Cole sighed with relief and yanked the door open. He sighed with relief when he saw Chris was alive, and glanced around at the others - but they didn't look happy. That, Cole figured, was not a good sign.

Chris just glared at her, then turned when Cole came inside. "Great," he muttered but eyed the door and went to push past Cole and get out.

Cole raised an eyebrow. "What's your problem, man?"

"What's my problem? What's yours?! Just get the hell away from me," he growled out.

"Why? What's your problem? Do you have any idea how much I was freaking out, how much we were all freaking out, and you act like we're sworn enemies or something!" Cole shouted.
