One second, she was bubbling with joy at seeing Connor; it had been too long since they’d seen one another. They were so busy; in fact, he was really busy. All the time. It was the reason she’d dumped him in the first place. She was never sure if the charities and the job had come before her. Yes, he’d been there for Harley’s funeral and that terrible week, but since then, barely a phone call.
Connor hadn’t even had a chance to return her hug before she stepped back, one pale eyebrow raised. He knew that look, but he couldn’t figure out why it was being used on him right now. “You haven’t called,” she said, her dress twitching as her tail started to undulate in irritable jerks.
“I have.” Connor said, confusion clear on his face.
“Not recently.” As his expression shifted into utter confusion, Kitty turned and headed for the food. She’d let him stew on that for a moment. When he was ready to apologize, they could talk.
She’d just gotten her plate when the young girl complimented her tail. Kitty choked back her first angry response; she should be getting used to that, but mentions of her tail made her feel like someone pointing out a deformity. She’d been trying to accept that single mar on her perfection, but having someone point it out in a loudish voice still made her want to hide it. Instead, she put on a smile and said, “Thank you.”

The past few months at the DSA had been quite slow for Sasha Mewes. Her training put her with Connor mostly. He taught her about the DSA top to bottom. Even though the work was tedious, it was a very fun time learning things from him. They grew closer as friends and they both had what they wanted when they wanted. Good times.

,,

And now there was a social gathering at the DSA offices. She had a nice little red Santa dress just for the occasion. Everyone who worked for the DSA was invited. And it seemed everyone was there. She smiled as she arrived at the building. Connor was already here; she noted his sportscar. In the elevator up to the offices, there were two awestruck baselines, obviously a couple. She asked them to smile and pulled out her camera. She always had a camera with her. The couple shined as she and they posed for a few self-groupshots. But the ride had to end some time. They were at their destination.

,,

Ms Muse's entrance was bombastic, striding through the door, lithe as an elf. "Merry Christmas everyone," she emphatically projected her voice. She saw people stop and look, she even got a few 'Merry Christmas' greetings back, though some had their eyes on the beautiful woman at the food table. Ms Muse had only one person in sight though. Connor. She put her camera away - she knew he hated it - and sauntered over to him. She cared for little else at that moment. She lovingly wrapped her arms around his torso and greeted him with a passionately slow kiss. "I brought some mistletoe for later on," she whispered to him in her native tongue.

Another one, Anastasia quizzically thought as she put her plate on a near by table. She wanted to near explode at all the world class hotties in their slinky little dresses. She focused her mind on the woman holding Connor. As Anastasia meddled through Ms Muse's emotions, she was overwhelmed by her own emotions. The need to protect Connor from all oncomers. The sadness of not having him. The rush of all this power use. It was so frustrating that she began to well up. She wasn't going to cry. Not now. She wiped her reddening eyes with both hands and walked away. Somewhere was anywhere better than here. When she reached a dark place no one was at, she curled up and whimpered into her knees.

Sean’s eyes were drawn to Kitty when she entered the room. His food was forgotten as he tracked her progress across the floor, and his fingers slowly reached up and tugged his sunglasses down so he could stare at her without filters between them. Her path caused him to see Connor in the flesh for the first time and his jaw dropped open a little. Then, Ms. Muse sauntered to Connor and planted one on him.
Sean was completely agape at that point. Three of the most beautiful people in the world had just made out in front of him. His grief was gone, washed away in a tsunami of lust. He’d watched one porn in his life, and it hadn’t affected him as much as this moment had.
Fingers touched his chin and gently pushed his mouth closed. “Hot people generally aren’t impressed by people drooling openly.” He jerked his head around to stare at Shae, who was giving him a little teasing grin. She pulled her hand back as she added, “Just a bit of advice.”
Sean blinked, seeing her for the first time. Suddenly, he realized he was showing her his eyes, and he shoved the glasses up his nose. “Ahem. Uh… so would… I was thinking… well, there’s so many… Leaving. I’d like it, if you don’t… see, it’s crowded.” He cleared his throat. “Wanna go away from here?”

Rebecca scratched her head, looking about the room. Ms. Muse was one to note in her appearance, as well as Kitty, Heck, Kitty stood out a bit.

All of this was quite strange. That and the only other adult in the room other than Vixen that she could talk to was brooding in a corner about something she couldn't fathom. Although the fire between Connor and Kitty concerned her. Then again most things like that did.

Sean and Shae were enamored with each other and Anastasia left.

Scratching her head some more, she decides to go back to the spread... There was something about the Nachos, the perfect blend of chili and cheese that was irresistable.

"Seesh I keep eating cheese like this I might sprout mouse ears and a tail at this rate." She joked.

Kei nodded after she stood up, grabbing her cloak from the coat rack. "I'm going to check up on Anastasia, Connor... seesh a second girl I know by that name now... well getting to know the second one." She said with a giggle before Kei's vision entered it's High-End EMScan and Electromagnetic mode. She grabbed a few more snacks, shooing Rebecca away first from the Nachos to take some extra... perhaps as a peace offering.

Adjusting her suit she starts to look around. Once she spotted Anastasia had disseapeared to an empty storeroom a few doors down Kei gently made her way to her hiding place.

It wasn't hard opening the door, it was unlocked. Hiding from Kei is... very difficult.

"Hey... Anastasia, right?"

She had quite a plate of nachos with cheddar and chili. Her glowing blue eyes gave away the fact the dimunitive Nova pilot had quite a repetoire of tricks up her sleeve.

Connor was shocked at Kitty's immediate Reversal of attitude, one second overjoyed to see him, the next storming off giving him the cold shoulder because he did what she had asked effectively, giving her her space. she left and not a minute later Sasha came in, wearing a Christmas dress, decidedly naughty, but not so much he'd need to ask her to change. She kissed him and practically draped herself over him and he was still in shock and somewhat unresponsive.

,,

Finally he looked down to her and smiled. "Sasha, good to see you could make it." He replied in Spanish and then nodded yo Vixen. In English he continued. "Dr. Richardson, this is Ms. Muse, another of our novas working in Public Relations. Sasha, this is Dr. Richardson, one of our Premier novas in R&D."

,,

This was all going to blow up in his face, he just knew it.

"How do you do, Miss Muse." Roxanne shook her hand. Part of her mind focused on the strange behaviour of Kitty, but she didn't know her and chalked it up to just the way she was. "I'm the Fox Xerox, as they call me. Well, when I'm not around, anyways."

Anastasia ran and ran rand ran. She didn't want to be seen by anyone in the state she was in. She didn't even know where she was when she got to where she was, but she didn't care. She curled up in a corner and cried for the things she couldn't have. That she would probably never have. She wanted a million dollar nova body. She wanted a cool and alpha demeanor. She wanted Connor. The thought that was merrily dancing around in her head now taunted her.

,,

She heard the door open and a knock. She quickly dried her eyes and looked up. A woman in a cloak was offering her nachos. She cleared her throat and sighed, "I'm sorry," her voice shook as she took the nachos, "I'm on a diet. And exercise. And tanning. And," She sniffled hard and wiped her eyes with her sleeve. "who am I kidding?"

"Something rustled yer jimmies good there, kid." Kei said.

It felt odd, with Kei's height she finally felt like she was on someone's level.

Kei upturns a empty bucket to sit on. "Well... I've had worse seating conditions."

She starts to nibble. "But yeah... something happened back there to get you stirred up. I'm not too many years older than ya, to be honest."

"I mean... I still can't drink until I'm 21 in January. Although I've been in a few scraps between my eruption and now."

"I mean I've fought a monster squid and it's little army for crying out loud. If I can handle that I can handle this." She said with a grin. Still crunching a chip.

"Ugh, I'm bad at this... I came in to see how you're doing is what I'm trying to get at."

It was suddenly, absolutely one hundred percent clear why Connor hadn’t called. Kitty put her back to him, no longer seeing the food she was picking over. Connor had found another woman to date. That was fine. She was fine. Everything was fine.
Lifting her head, she scanned the room for another person to talk to. Anyone. Where was Telluris? He was funny and charming, but she didn’t see him either. Sighing to herself, Kitty found her ‘problem’ solved when one of Connor’s human co-workers came up to her, trying to hold a pen discretely in his hand. Within a few moments, she was being politely mobbed by fans.

Anastasia's mind turned that goddamn monkey image she'd seen so much on the internet. If this weren't her breakdown she'd think it was hilarious. She certainly wasn't a mask-wearing troll herself, but she enjoyed the schadenfreude other people put forth. This felt like some god level troll, like karma was shitting all over her life in one big dump. Sucks to be on the other side.

,,

And now a woman in a cloak wanted to talk to her about what was wrong. Kei, Connor introduced her as Kei. Oh god she was thinking about him again. "I've. never. faced. squid. before," she said each word sucking in a breath. She tried to fight back the waterworks, but it was futile. "I just wanted to be with Connor," she said burying her face in her knees, "but he has big booty bitches and catgirls fawning all over him. What am I gonna ever do?"

"Connor is like that. I crushed on him too, but even Karrie had designs on him."

She sighed. "Think nothing of it, honestly. If you can't have it you can't have it. It's the sheer nature of it."

Adjusting her suit, she reaches into her pocket, to show Anastasia a picture of Kei with Nate, just after theri balloon trip a year ago. Kei was a bit embarassed the pic showed her in the schoolgirl outfit she got almost a couple years ago when doing volunteer relief work in Japan.

"This guy is mine... I gotta learn to keep my end of the bargain, honestly." She said. "You'll find your knight. Mine is just a Jedi." She said with a laugh. "Look... there is something about Connor and Kitty... they have apassive charisma that just overwhelms the senses. Doesn't seem to work on me very well... but I can see where it comes from. I've learned to accept it."

"I just scratch my head... I never was this guy crazy when I was 13. I wanted to learn how to fly... well Planes I didn't pop the node yet."

She sighed. "There's those feels again... I'd give anything to get back behind the stick of a Jet again."

Shae shrugged and bit off one of the shrimp, her eyes watering at the spices. She did her best not to cough, but spicy was a bit of an understatement to her. "Sure, I've fine with ditching. Wanna grab the rest of the kiddie table to go with us, or is this a date?" She grinned at him, in that special way girls can that leaves boys with no idea if they're just teasing or totally serious. If he'd known Shae, he'd've had the dubious pleasure of knowing she'd take it whichever direction would fluster him the most.

,,

"It seems like the old people are about to get into drama, which is usually a good time to bail, anyways," she added. She could spot one other kid-nova, and the girl that had run out just a second ago. Tracking her down would probably take a minute, but a night out without 'responsible oversight' sounded fun and for the moment Shae was in a sharing mood. She finished off the skewer and her cup of punch and looked at Sean expectantly, waiting for an answer.

Rebecca saw things were starting to get tense. Particularly with Connor and the growing flock of women competing for his attentions.

Worried, she turned to the blonde girl talking with the other newcomer. "If this is a time to evacuate, we should make that call soon." She said, straightening herself out. "Although the girl that ran off I think Sea Eagle is taking care of." She stated, scratching her head. "Then again it seems you two might want time with each other."

She sighed. "Whatever you guys want to do."

Connor seemed occupied when Sasha looked at him. Well that wasn't the response she was looking for. He introduced her to several people and she greeted them respectably - in English; while she was fluent in the language, her accent was still very apparent - but the one Sasha was interested in meeting was the one Connor was obviously more interested in. "Kitty Price works here," she asked rhetorically with a large smile. She looked at Connor with expectant eyes, "I've always wanted to meet her. Come on, let's go say hi." She grabbed his hand and pulled him over to the food table.

,,

Connor saw the proverbial lion's den he was walking directly into, complete with one mad cat. He almost pulled Sasha's hand back to urge her to reconsider, but no, this was something that had to be done, if only to smooth things over with Kitty about Sasha. When the two met face to face he expected to hear wailing and gnashing of teeth. Instead he heard Sasha unknowingly throwing herself into the said lion's den.

,,

"Hello, Ms Price," Sasha said gleefully greeting Kitty with a friendly hug.

“Uhhhh… aren’t you a little young to be thinking about stuff like that? Is your mom around here somewhere?” Sean wasn’t opposed to spending more time with The Girl—as he couldn’t remember her name, that was her official name in his head.
Before Rebecca could reply, Sean shook his head. “Nevermind, let’s just split. Kid, you can come if you wanna, but I don’t wanna be here any longer.” As he spoke, he grabbed several plates and started to load up on the food. “Anyone have a way to carry some drinks, or should we stop by the break room for some pop?”
He was thinking ahead, wondering where the hell they could go, even as he started to scan the room for Horst or another potential caretaker. It wouldn’t do to make all these plans and get stopped somewhere.

Kitty had only just started to turn; she’d just registered that Connor and that woman were approaching her when the woman grabbed her in a hug. “Get off of me!” The words were as instinctive as was Kitty’s maneuver. She hadn’t progressed far in her training, so she simply braced herself and shoved. “You think you can just run up and grab people?”
The outburst was so unlike Kitty that people, including Connor, just stared. However, the tailed nova was not done, as she snapped, “Grabbing someone like that is assault. Would you like to be assaulted?! Do you think I want strangers running up and acting like they have the right to touch me?”
“Kih-”
Connor’s attempt to slow her down only made him the target. “No, don’t you dare, Connor. You know I hate being mugged by strangers, so don’t you defend her!”
Her blue-eyed gaze turned back to Muse, staring at the other woman balefully. “Well? Are you even going to apologize?”

Connor didn't smile, recovering from the shock at her outburst, and pulling Sasha back from Kitty, before things escalated. He didn't have to do much as Kitty shoved her essentially into his arms, as he kept her from falling. "Easy now."

,,

He considered his Options, and none really seemed that good. "I think we got off on the wrong foot. It's my fault for not warning her Kitty, blame me on that. She is just saying hello."

,,

To Sasha he offered a thin smile. "I know you're very friendly, but some people aren't so accustomed to a warm and personal greeting, sorry I didn't forewarn you." He was the gallant knight, taking the blame for the situation, from both ends, trying to salvage it before it went too far.

,,

Looking at Kitty, he nodded. "She didn't mean to do anything other than greet you Kitty, really." He'd seen people do far more to her, like grabbing her tail and such, and even he knew better than that, but a hug, he'd seen others she knew do this before without incident. Still, with the tragedy, he surmised it had something to do with it.

,,

His words seemed to take the edge off the crowd, and most returned to their own conversations.

Sasha was not ready for Kitty's outburst It seemed Kitty had a problem with personal space. And she seemed so nice in those interviews on TV.Still, Sasha was ready to roll with the punches, as it were. She crossed her arms and smiled as Kitty bared down on her with demands of an apology. Her attacker was not letting her get a word in. "Ms Price," Sasha said in her best English, "please allow me to apologize. I did not recognize your... eminence?" She looked to Connor with a smile, "You did not tell me Kitty was such a... spitfire?" Indeed, Sasha was visually impressed with Kitty. If they had gotten off on a better foot, she might have shared some mistletoe with her too. Then again, maybe the olive branch could be extended and this night could be saved for them all. "Ms Price," she said looking to Kitty again, her tone of voice softening into a purr, "I was just enamoured by your presence. You are one of the most beautiful people in the room here. I would love to get to know you as well as I know Connor."

Kid, you can come if you wanna, but I don’t wanna be here any longer.” As he spoke, he grabbed several plates and started to load up on the food. “Anyone have a way to carry some drinks, or should we stop by the break room for some pop?”

Rebecca smiled with a calm determination. "I can lift the payload. Trust me." She smiled, whispering. "That levitation trick was just for practice. We'll need to raid the pop machine though, we should have stuff in plastic bottles, just in case I drop it."

She loads up the last of her ill gotten gain, then leads the evacuation. "And don't worry, I can smooth things over with the adults if they're wondering what we're doing. I doubt that us going off to have a quiet lunch will offend anyone. Besides, we shoould leave the adults to handle this... hopefully like adults." Rebecca's last sentence dripped with a bit of scarcasm, like a freshly used stiletto.

She sighed. "Should we get the Hoodie-girl? Although I think she's in goo hands with Miss Nakano."

Sasha was doing so well, right until she unwittingly put her foot back into it. Kitty was calming down, and getting to the point where she could be civil. That calm exploded back into rage as soon as Sasha mentioned how well she knew Connor. “I have zero desire to get to know you the way you know Connor.” Which was true; Kitty had no interest in other women, as a rule. There were exceptions to that rule, and at one time, Sasha might have been one of them. That had changed the second she’d cleaned Connor’s tonsils with her tongue.
“Now if you’ll excuse me, I need to speak with someone.” She’d spotted Director Horst across the room; he was watching their group with concern. She wondered if he’d been aware of what Connor and Sasha were up to, and whether he was all right with it. It wasn’t her business, and she put on a smile as she walked toward him. She wanted to speak to him about the DSA. Kitty wasn’t sure it was right for her, but she wouldn’t overlook any possibilities. Then, she could leave and go drown her sorrows in a tub of Ben and Jerry’s Waffle Cone ice cream.

Kei munched on her nachos still making it clear that the Nacos were more than welcome to Anastasia too.

"You know... I know a Anastasia. Personally. Got her out of a bad situation... well... it was complex. Involved having her eject out of a jet and some encouragement, then having to explain to the NSA that she was a important intel asset for a problem we've been having... little did I know she'd been helping us all along..."

She giggled. "I think I got good luck with kids named Anastasia. You think? That is if Anastasia is also your name... I was hearing it batted about with my superiors recently and you fit the bill."

"Look... if there is anything you wanna talk about. This place here is as good as any."

Shae arched a brow at the 'quiet lunch' comment, but let the other kid stack up on snacks and lead the way out of the ballroom. The stir between Conner and the two beautiful nova women had her handlers distracted enough that she slipped into the skin of a lanky brunette a few inches shorter than she'd been a moment before. Nothing to do about the clothes, but if they made their exit quick enough, that wouldn't matter. Horst really should have learned by now to put someone a tad more....on her level...to keep tabs on her. Especially at a part with nova like Ms. Muse and Kitty Price strutting around. I mean, really, it's almost boringingly easy now.

,,

Once they were out in the hall, she winked at them both and said, "Just a sec. I'll go see if 'Hoodie-Girl' wants to tag along."

,,

She snuck into the catering area, piecing together an outfit from extras for staff that got drinks spilled on them (or dropped things because damn, Connor is hawt) and did a quick change. A woman in her twenties, officious looking and fitting the stolen clothing perfectly, came back out of the staff area and stalked down the hallway until she found the closet where Anastasia and Kei were holed up. She knocked on the door as she opened it, making it clear that the knock was barely a courtesy.

,,

"Miss," she said, her voice tinged with just enough TV British to make her sound snooty (in Shae's opinion), "Director Horst would like a private word with you." She nodded to Anastasia and motioned for the teen to follow her out of the closet. "This way, if you please."

,,

Kei was given just enough of a glance to acknowledge that she was there and that the situation was now out of her hands. It wasn't perfect acting, but Shae was banking on Kei not to be expecting a shapeshifting teen breakout or to question a 'request' from Horst.

Kei stood up, straightening her outfit.

"You know... I really don't care." Kei said, grabbing her nachos. "I think she can do better with you guys anyways."

She grinned, "Director Horst..."

"Actually, I've been meaning to speak with Director Horst, but I wager he's probably busy getting you guys sorted, I can speak to him tomorrow. I have been itching to get flying again and rumblings are is the DoD has pretty much forgiven me..."

She started getting that itch again. "Maybe my helping the good Doctor would raise my stock a bit... I should go back there. Everything okay with Connor and company?"

Shae blinked, confused by the older nova's odd question of what should appear to be nothing more than a staff member, and sallied with a prim, "Mr. Fontenot's party is proceeding quite nicely, if that is what you are asking, ma'am."

,,

She stepped into the closet, keeping as much professional distance between herself and Kei as possible in such a small place, and held a hand down to Anastasia to help her up. "Miss, if you would please come with me," she let some of the Brit-snob out of her tone, trying to cajole the girl into standing up so they could get out of there before Kei decided to go back to the ballroom and find Horst there probably having a coronary over Ms. Muse and Kitty being catty over Conner - Oh god, the alliteration! Never again! - instead of waiting in some side room to talk to 'Hoodie-Girl'. "It'll be alright," she promised.

Connor's face momentarily Showed a look few had ever seen, a frown. "I'll have to have a talk with her later." Sasha could hear some sadness in his voice. There was definitely a long history there. Of course the tabloids had covered his and Kitty's romance, and their breakup, they could still make money on anything that dealt with the two of them, and in the last two months they'd started up on Connor and Sasha.

,,

He looked to Sasha and the frown vanished, though he didn't smile. "Well she did need to speak with Director Horst, she was considering signing on with the DSA after all." In turn he guided her back to Vixen, and shrugged. "Well now that the first act is done...."

,,

He smiled at the vulpine nova. "And you were starting to wonder if other novas would show..."

,,

He spared a look around. "Looks like the kids ate and ran..."

Kei sighed at Anastasia's continued silence, even to her peers.

She turned to Shae as Anastasia got up to follow the kids. "Look, Ana... just talk to me... you know how to reach me, okay something is bothering you... just know we're here, alright?"

She turned to the woman Shae was portraying. "Well, Ana is in good hands. Excuse me..."

Kei brushed herself off. Looking to the others. "Well since you kids are helping her, maybe she can loosen up with you guys more. I should head back to the party."

She smiled and nodded and walked back to the cafeteria, her large pile of Nachos half-eaten.

"Well... that was... complex..."

She sees things in the cafeteria wasn't any better.

"Dammit May why are you still on vacation... you could talk down any crisis..." She thought.

Rebecca stayed in the back of the group, being the team's pack mule at least made her feel like she had some purpose, but there was some sort of guilty pleasure in running with the rest of the group. Once Kei was out of earshot she grinned. "So... think Kei is a sucker or what?" Kei whispered, mischief in her eyes.

"So... we got our swag, what next?"

Her noticing the "Adult" in her midst made her gulp. "Great... we're busted and we just started?"

Once Kei was out of the closet, Shae let her features shift back to her "normal" face. She grinned at Anastasia, "C'mon, we're gonna jet and go have some fun on our own." The other teen nova still hesitated, but eventually took Shae's hand. The two scurried back to where the other teens were waiting for them.

,,

"Okay, food: check, us: check, now for getting the hell out of here." Shae was in her element now and nearly glowed with the fun of making adults panic over where she was and what she might be doing. She lead them through the a maze of hallways, through office areas and places clearly marked "Authorized Personnel Only" with an easy familiarity. Eventually they ended up at a door marked EXIT that had a camera mounted just above it and led into a dead-end alley on the side of the DSA building. Shae grinned at the camera and waved, blowing an irreverent kiss before punching in a security code on the electronic lock-pad on the door and ushering the others out. Laughing, she kept hold of the quite Ana-the-Hoodie-Girl's hand and took off at a run to get a few blocks between the small group and the people supposedly responsible for them.

,,

She found a wide alleyway with a large fire-escape and pointed up to the second-floor landing area. "Okay, let's nosh on the food there and decide where we want to go next." She was already climbing, helping Rebecca get the food up without having to run after sodas. "Anywhere in particular you guys want to go after? I've been around most of the city by now, so..." She shrugged, letting the offer trail off.

Rebecca cracked open her Mountain Dew. "Well we are in virginia right now... Langely isn't too exiting. I think we'll have to be creative."

Taking a drink, she grinned. "To be honest doing this I'm not an expert in."

Chomping on a Hot Dog, she sighed. "At least I got the swag with us. Any of us got a budget? We could snag a movie or a mall run. I think there has to be a decent sized mall in Richmond."

When Connor frowned it was a notable dark spot in Sasha's evening. The fact that he wasn't happy made her a bit perturbed, but now this most beautific being showing his sadness was almost unbearable. She just wanted him to be happy. A delicate touch would be needed here. "It'll be OK, baby," she whispered in his ear with a comforting tone, "This little heated exchange will be forgotten in the morning. Unlike some things that won't be." She grinned and kissed him on the cheek.

,,

Connor could smell many things, one being the mistletoe that was under Sasha's dress. He was going to get in trouble if he focused on it, so he moved along to a person he knew and Sasha did not; Vixen. Hopefully this would go a little bit better. "Well, now that the first act is done," he greeted her.

,,

"Greetings, foxy lady," Sasha said, in English, cheerfully reaching out a hand to Vixen. She mostly spoke in Spanish and that was something Connor was trying to train her to not do. He did love her accent though, among other things.

Connor did smile. Sasha knew how to console him well enough. He wasn't sure it would be alright, but he'd work hard to make it so.

,,

He smiled leaning into her. "Wearing mistletoe? that's not too uncomfortable?"

,,

"It can be deadly if you eat it you know."

Sean kept an eye on Rebecca and their surroundings as they made their way through the building and outside. The night air felt good to him as they exited the massive DSA fortress. When Shae pointed to the ledge, the young man’s feet left the ground. They came back down quickly; Sean found it far too easy to slip into flight, and he always felt vaguely ashamed when he did so. It was the powers that had killed people and landed him here. “You can fly?” Shae innocently inquired as she gestured to Ana. “Can you get the ladder?”
Sean wasn’t sure what their powers were, but both of the younger girls were a bit short to reach the first rung. Shrugging, he floated up and grabbed the stairs. He slowly released his flight, letting his weight draw the metal down. As the girls climbed up, he held on, letting them reach the ledge before he floated up to join them. Taking a seat, he considered Shae’s question. “I dunno the city real well. Are their clubs that’d let us in?”
Shae gave him a bemused glance. “There are clubs that will let me in, and clubs always have a way for someone inside to let others in.”
Sean swallowed and looked away from the girl. She was way more worldly than him, and it made him nervous, like no matter what he said, he’d sound lame. “Club sounds fun to me.” He hoped he didn’t sound like a dweeb. “I have some money,” he added. “Not a lot, but some.”

"Hmm..."

Rebecca had as they got out, grabbed her backpack and had it over her shoulder. She pulled out her laptop as she started considering options. "I've never really been a clubber. It's never interested me. I was actually thinking of checking a few electronics stores to see if I could find a new laptop or something... this one is a bit behind. Can't play League of Legends without lag... that can be crucial in a 5v5.

Just not sure on movies... Someplace has to still be showing Wreck-It Ralph."

She smiled. "Maybe I could see if there is a game store around here... like an actual one. See if there are any Tabletop games going on."

Yep, Sean now doesn't have to worry about feeling like the head nerd... Rebecca just trumped them all.

Kei nibbled on her nachos, looking like some oddball superhero at this point with her cloak draped over her shoulders and her white and blue suit fitting the bill.

"I'll be honest guys... how long have we been working with each other, and with great comraderie, yet suddenly..." She holds her hand out with a confused face. "I mean Kitty... Connor... come on."

She sighed. "Sorta wish Nate was here... He's always sitting around his offices..."

"Great, now I'm depressed..." Kei thought, sitting down.

Her nova name, her character name; it seemed to precede her. She wasn't knocking it either. If people didn't know who Sasha was, the more the better. She politely curtsied when Vixen called her name. "I am going to be personal relations for the DSA," she said happily as a schoolkid would explain their schedule, "Connor has been training me so much for such work."

Sasha smiled as Connor leaned in. When he asked about the mistletoe she pulled the plant from the top of under her dress, speaking in Spanish again. "No, that's not what you're going to be eating, dear." Vixen lifted an eyebrow in recognition of the language. Sasha caught that she knew what she was saying. She chuckled and spoke in English again, "Smart as a fox?"
