Micheal offered Gloria a small smile. You know, comforting. She was twitchy, twitchier then normal. The whole, pointing a gun thing and all. He needed to talk her down. Make her do the not pointing a gun at people thing. They might go and get the wrong impression if they saw that. Like the impression that someone was going to get shot. Which, you know, fair point reaching that particular conclusion. Gun and all. Which was why it would serve everyone if she put it away.

“Don’t be sorry. Just, you know, be careful, yeah?” He looked toward the other group then back to his surroundings. Not back they way they came, then, And not forward. Which…limited choices some. But that was okay. Adaptability was key, right? Forward and back weren’t options, but they could just head east or west. Anywhere but here. Judging by the shouting, sticking around was probably bad for his health.

And, as if to prove his point, some guy comes charging out of nowhere with a chair. A chair! Well, also, probably not nowhere. If he was paying attention, he probably would have noticed. But he wasn’t, so he didn’t. So he was caught completely unaware as a chair started flying around in his immediate personal space. Which, in case it wasn’t obvious, was very bad.

His immediate instinct was to move, and for lack of anything better, it was the instinct he followed. Micheal ducked off to the side, holding his free hand up to his face in a warding gesture. For a second, he forgot about Gloria as he tried to get clear. The possibility that Gloria was the target was so ridiculous that he didn’t think it warranted much thought anyway. So, he ducked away under the impression that he should expect a chair to smack him in the head any second.

It belatedly occurred to him that he armed. At the same time it occurred to him that if he looked toward the assailant, he’d be hit in the face. He arrived at the compromise of slashing out blindly with the Wolverine claws. In his mind, he was the very image of a blind warrior. In reality, he was flailing about like an idiot.
"There are, it has been said, two types of people in the world. There are those who, when presented with a glass that is exactly half full, say: this glass is half full. And then there are those who say: this glass is half empty. The world belongs, however, to those who can look at the glass and say: What's up with this glass? Excuse me? Excuse me? This is my glass? I don't think so. My glass was full! And it was a bigger glass" -Terry Pratchett, The Truth
