Stone - California, Abomination Territory
36 hours after fleeing the then burning streets of Houston, Stone finds himself speeding down a dusty and decaying road. He was still coming to grips with all that had happened. That his boss Mac Mc creed was dead, that most of his friends and colleagues had either been killed, or had defected over to the side of that maniac Kaine. All of the territory that he had spent half of his young life fighting for was now gone, lost in a single night. Giving in and joining Kaine in his new rule of the city was an action he had contemplated. It would have been easy, had he been able to let go of his pride, and his need for revenge.
As he contiuned to speed down the road, he swerved the armored black sedan he was driving around a large pothole. Deciding that it would be best to flee the city in light of his desire to not join forces with Kaine, Stone went about collecting the items he would need on his journey. He was barely able to make it to his safe house, a place in which he kept a small stockpile of resources for hard times before Kaine's men came for him. Only able to gather up a mere fraction of the whole of his stores, he barely managed to fight off his attackers as he took to the road in an customized sedan, giving to him by Mc creed to execute vehicular assaults and attacks on a various assortment of targets. The car would protect him from gun fire, and was equipped with a few weapon load outs as well, but it was designed for the street, and handled poorly on the rough roads of Abomination's territory.
It was surprising that he had been pushed to run so far. His original intent was to flee to the area surrounding Houston, but Kaine's men proved persistent in their chase, and so he drove to ever increasing measures of distance away, trying to remove himself from Kaine's shockingly long reach. Kaine likely felt that he was a threat, that he would one day return to wreak havoc, to fulfill a burning plot of revenge. Despite no longer being quite human Stone did not see Magneto's territory as a potential haven, and with Doom's iron fisted dictatorial grip onto his land, that place was an unlikely candidate as well. Thus he found himself in the savage land of the Abomination.
As he continued to speed down the road, the dilapidated remains of what used to be a shopping mall came into view. Stone eased his vehicle towards it, and found a somewhat secluded spot to park his vehicle. He exited the sedan, Uzi in hand, he looked back in the direction he had traveled from. Had his pursuers given up their chase, or were they simply biding their time, waiting to ambush him. He would rather they did wait the sun began to fall from the sky. Not wanting to stand out in the open rays of the sun, Stone made his way into the shopping mall, wanting to indulge in the new sense of security he felt when amongst the shadows. His new body had served him well so far, allowing him to survive on a smaller ration of food and water, though his appetite was the same as before his new found transformation. as he stepped through a broken glass window, he could hear the faint roar of motorcycle engines in the distance. "Damn dogs just don't know when to quit" Stone thought to himself. They weren't likely to see his vehicle, but they would no doubt stop to investigate the building. "Come on in then, Cold Stone's got gifts to die for!" He said aloud as he cocked his Uzi in preparation of the possible coming conflict. He quickly went into the building, into the shadows.
