Just after Code Adam...
Charles Xavier hovered down the hall from Cerebro and entered the infirmary where he knew some of the X-Men already were. He entered to find them around the bed of Paige Guthrie. It was quiet, not even the sound of a heart monitor. While in her alternate forms, Paige's body ceases to be like that of a normal person's. She was just like living stone in this form, no heart beat to monitor. Though 'living' might be a bit of a stretch in her current predicament. With no need of a heartbeat or oxygen it was impossible to tell if Paige was alive or dead. Charles hoped for the former with every fiber of his being. He did not want to lose another student. However, the very fact that Paige was still in her stone form was a good sign. Theoretically, she should return to normal upon death, but something in her was holding on and keeping her in her stone form.
"How is she?" he asked, turning to Emma who was a the console.
"Guess." came Emma's reply curtly. She was as stone-faced as Paige right now, but even she had difficulty hiding how she felt about this one. She had looked after Paige during her Generation-X days. Emma was her most volatile when people attacked her students, particularly the ones she was closest too. Leaving Emma to stew, Xavier turned to the rest of the group.
"I've found the children. Little Vanessa Lockhart managed to reach past whatever is blocking Cerebro with her telepathy. I don't know how, but it allowed me to see her and the others for just a moment before the defenses pushed her back again. They are locked in a cell, scared but unharmed. Storm, I want you to form a small team to bring to the island. Infiltration based. The mission is to get the kids and get out. Conflict is to be avoided as much as possible." he said, giving his orders.
