Valence is really slow to respond to everything that happened because Bigshot is an asshole. Also she's very sick! It's pretty damn normal for an empath that can feel everyone's panic to probably disassociate! Everything just hits poor Valence kinda slow and then all at once. But hey, with all that fear, she's probably pretty good on energy, right?

There's running, things blow up, and they're thrown into the Potomac! Boy, if it doesn't all happen in a flash Layla barely properly interprets. Like a blink. Or like someone had pressed fast-forward on a movie. Everything else happens like her body is on auto-pilot. Flee, breathe, fall, swim, breathing mask, cough, sputter, stare. Blink, blink, blink--

Fuck.

Where even is she? What the hell's even going on? In the rush of water and all the energy. Her capelet's gone, lost in the water, she's sure, and revealing her damp curls. Far more of her identity than she's comfortable with, but who cares! She'd just saved the world with these guys. Maybe them having a hint at her real name wouldn't be so damn bad.

The ringing in her ears blissfully fades, and she has to open her mouth to pop her damn ears. It hurts. God, every part of her aches, but she knows it's not over. Far from it. Sputtering, she pushes her hair out of her face, taking in her surroundings. Taking in the people around her.

"Did-- did we lose the cat?" God, what a wildly inappropriate come-back. She feels like such an ass. Just...gaping and blinking and trying to stop the pounding between her temples. "I can-- I can help. It's a sentient being, right?" Damn, her head hurts, but any distraction is worth it at this point. Also, anything that gets her going again so she can ignore the almost entirely black-spot in her memory.

Though, she's...not really sure she can do much? She's good at picking out emotions, and minds, feelings and consciousness-- but she's never really tried to seek out particular ones before. Still, there's gotta be something around here that feels more instinctual and cat-like than a human would. Or more magical, maybe! Raven was super magical. Why wouldn't his cat be? Her brows knit as she strains to focus, though it's likely entirely in vain.
All that fear better be good for something, though! Or she'll just make her headache way worse.
