“Most likely due to your lack of emotional depth” Benjamin said in a very casual manner as if describing an illness to a patient. Although it was a clear attempt at riling the scientist up it was delivered with enough real arrogance to seem authentic “A probable result because of embarrassment for a lack of academic achievements.” He added without looking a the scientist, keeping the same neutral expression.

The heat in Liam’s hands spiked a notable degree and remained there. Meanwhile, the patient blinked. A mix of shock and surprised mingled on Liam’s expression, the reaction breaking his sober one. For a moment, he wasn’t sure how to respond to the insult.

His lips tightened before he replied.

“At least I don’t allow my emotions to override my common sense. I thought you were an intelligent person. At least smarter than to say your thoughts out loud where I can hear them…”

Liam stated while still being ignorant of Grey’s intentions.

Benjamin looked up with a disinterested expression “The expression of one’s thoughts should never be kept internal and never governed by childish emotions or the outbreaks that entail” He looked at the display and nodded slightly in approval “Not that you’re at fault, it is quite common for men of above average intelligence to lack emotional maturity” the Doctor continued his arrogant display of disdain. Never in his life had he felt more uncomfortable, he was hoping that sticking to generalities and misconceptions were enough to rile Madison up without actually permenately spurning him.

Liam’s eyes closed for a moment, thinking of his reply. He attempted to focus, but his mind appeared to have difficulty. For the time, he explained it away with frustration. A reply came to his mind, but he bit his tongue. Iron filled his taste as the temperature in his hands increased. They went from pale straw yellow to red then to blue, still climbing at an alarming rate. Liam’s radiation levels had taken a sudden dropped when his hands reached over a thousand.

During his distraction, his figure tilted to one side. His arm rushed out to correct his posture and hissed when it touched the cold surface. The sound startled him enough to right himself and jerk it away. He left a small scorch mark behind.

“Grey…” Liam began but he trailed off as he tried to stay upright.

Benjamin’s face went pale as he realized his mistake “Alright so I have good news and bad news” He said calming his own panic as he typed his console, sending the relevant information to the Scientists screen “Good news is that my hypothesis was correct, anger is the instigating factor of your abilities. The bad news is I don’t know how to reverse this” He gave a nervous laugh as he programmed an emergency cooling function “SO I need you to calm down, which admittedly has never calmed anyone down but still” He looked up “Any insults thrown in your direction were simply a way to irritate you, however, I failed to factor in that I have a talent for irritation.” He explained quickly “So any mental excersise you have to empty your mind would be helpful right about now”

OOC: Altered the location, lol. Kept forgetting.

“Your…jabs were effective,” Madison growled under his breath, trying to tame his temper.

His arms pulled into his lap and his eyes closed. He tried to block out everything in a form of mediation, but he felt the creature’s restless energy. Its chaotic emotions flooded into his calm ones, ruining the peace he gained.

“Grey, can you flood the compartment with radiation?”

His hands began to sizzle at the clothing he wore now.
