Westchester - Cold Stone Creamery

Coldstone Creamery is always chilly inside, even in the winter months, to accommodate for the variety of ice creams they offer. A big sign with all there ice cream specials sit on the wall, and all the different ice creams and toping can be seen in the counter windows. This Coldstone is unlike the rest with its red color scheme. A few tables sit inside the Creamery for customers to sit and enjoy their cold treats.

Vladimir It was hot outside while the sun is up today around 85 degrees but now the sun is down it is much cooler. After you he heard what happen thew other day Vlad ask July to come out and get some ice cream with him. When she agree the two of them walk to the local Cold Stone Creamery. Inside he orders white chocolate chip mint with hot chocolate sauce, M&M, and whip cream.

July just orders the same, sans whip cream, and goes to have a seat near a window, "I told you I'm over I already, but I'm still going to milk your offer for all its worth, you know that, right? "She smirks softly.

Vladimir laughs and pays for you and him self, "yah but what type of friend would I be if I didn't offer to take you out after that." He walks over to you and stands next to you, "So any world one Owen?"

July chuckles softly, "No, no word on Owen. Haven't asked the teachers, though." she says, shaking her head, before sampling her ice cream. "How about you?"

Vladimir shakes his head, "not a word. Like you I have not asked." He takes a spoon full of ice cream, "Love mint." He leans against the window, "why don't we find a open booth."

July shrugs softly, "It's good here." she says, smiling, enjoying her ice cream, "But I'm sure we'll have news soon. For better or for worse. We gotta look for him. "

Vladimir nods and sighs, "Yah I did not know him well but I hope he is returned safely. We could go look for him I mean the city is big but I sure we can think of a why to lure him to us."

July shakes her head, "We got no lead. He just flew up and disappeared. We don't even know if he's in the city yet, or what he wants…"

Vladimir nods, "true and with knowing more about his habits it be hard to find him." He eats some more of the melting ice cream, "Does anyone at the school can track him or find him?"

July eats her melting ice cream as well as you speak, "Well, it seems Laura has enhanced senses, but she can't track him, aside from pointing toward the general direction he flew toward that moment." she shrugs softly.

Vladimir sighs and takes another mouth full of ice cream. and thinks, "Well if I know more about this form I could come up with a way to bring him to me I know a dog whistle will mess up a normal bat but not sure about him."

July nods softly, "Maybe. But we don't know if he's a normal bat." she says, rubbing the back of her head before continuing on her ice cream. "I think we need to leave that to hte veterans."

Vladimir frowns and nods, "yah but I don't have to like it. He one of use a student and students should help each other out." This is a odd statement from Vlad someone who show no loyalty to anyone but him self up to now.

July shrugs softly as she finishes with her ice cream, "I don't like it either, but it's not like we have a choice. We're inexperienced, and got no leads at all."

Vladimir sighs and takes another bit of Ice Cream. He thinks some, "damn it how long can he stay like this?" He takes another bit and then another. His eyes go wide and his hand move up to his head, "ack brain freeze!"

July giggles softly as you complain of brain freeze, "Watch out, man. Cool off a bit." she says, smiling, "We'll find him, don't worry."

Vladimir rubs his temples, "cool off is not the problem right now." He smiles some as his head starts to feel better, "so tell me are you enjoying being at the school?"

July chuckles softly, smiling, and she rests her arms on the table, "Well, it sure beats being locked within your own home without being able to see the sun." she shrugs softly.

Vladimir frowns at the and his hand makes a fist, "your father is a selfish man to lock up his daughter to keep face." He can't stand the idea of you being locked up. He sighs, "did you ever try to escape?"

July smiles, but she raises her hand to stop you, "Calm down there." she says, smiling, "You're not getting the big picture here." she says, shaking her head softly, and waits until you calm down.

Vladimir frowns and sighs, "fine tell me the whole story. I'll hold judgment until then." He then eats some more of his now drippy ice cream and listens.

July leans back against her chair as she beings telling her story. "My father is an important businessman from D.C. We're rich, but not pampered. Most of our profits go to help fund charitable events." she says, nodding a bit, "But the people hates mutants, and if it became public knowledge that my father had a mutant daughter, it'd ruin his reputation, and we'd get broke. People dislike mutants THAT much." she nods again, sighing, "I knew of it, and accepted it. Mom dropped her teaching job to stay at home at all times with me, being my teacher full time." she says, smiling a bit.

Vladimir frowns and sighs, "still sounds like he put him self before you. I understand keeping it hush hush for a while while he makes new plans and save money to live on but it sounds like he was just going to keep you in the house forever. You just got lucky the school found you. In truth I could understand if he set up an apartment and ask you to change your name to protect you and him but he didn't even do that."

July chuckles, "He was in the process of doing that. But, our house was surrounded by paparazzi almost 24/7 it was night impossible to do something secret in there." she shrugs softly.

Vladimir nods, "well then I guess I can forgive him for it then." He smiles softly, "I just get mad when I think you hurt any way."

July shakes her head softly, "Nah, it's not like he hurt me. True, it was a bummer not being able to go outside anymore, but I understood the reasons. He never forced me to do anything."

Vladimir nods, "your a better person then me I most likely of ran away the first night he told me I was not allow to leave the house."

July chuckles softly, "I couldn't. I love my parents. And I didn't want them to suffer in case I decided to leave the house." she shakes her head softly.
Vladimir nods and smiles, "Well like I said your a better person then me." He eats more of his ice cream. So what do you want to do after you finish school?"

July smiles, "I don't know." she says softly, "If I can control my powers to act normally around people, I'll most likely inherit my father's business." seh says softly, "The Lanford Industries."

Vladimir nods, "I see. It must be nice knowing you have such a job waiting for you." He smiles and and eats more of his ice cream. He moves some hair from his eyes, "I'm not sure what I going to do most likely something to do with computers."

July smiles, "Having such a high job waiting for me means there's also high expectations for me too." She chuckles, 'So it's kind of a double-edged blade."

Vladimir laughs some, "guess your right." He finish his ice cream and licks his lips, "Is it something you want to do?"

July smiles, "It's a nice job. I mean, it's my family's business." she says softly, "I grew up with it. I guess all I can is that I am willing to try.' she shrugs.

Vladimir nods and and sighs, "listen give it a try if you do not like it walk away it is your life not your family's" He leans back in the chair, "but then again I not sure I the best persons for this I mean born of white trash and most likely will be white trash my self."

July smiles, "You'll only be white trash if you want to be white trash." she says, eating the last few scoops left of her ice cream.

Vladimir laughs, "I hope your right I hate to be a nothing all my life." He smiles, "how is it you can stay so sunny about things?"

July giggles, "It wouldn't help me in any way to keep a negative outlook on life." she says, shrugging, "I don't know, I've always been like this."

Vladimir nods and smiles, "wish I could at the world from your point of view it seems like such a nicer place."

July smiles, "It's not." she says, giggling softly, "I merely believe it can be." she points out.

Vladimir nods and smiles, "I see. So it getting late maybe we should head back before we break the rules."

July chuckles softly and nods, smiling, "Sure. I'll ask one of the teachers tomorrow if they have any news on Owen's whereabouts."

Vladimir nods, "sounds good." He stands and smiles going to the door and holding it open for you.
