A Chilling Warmth

Rating: PG-13

Kael and Leo's Room

// Slightly bigger than the old room, the new rooms fit two students comfortably. Each room has off white walls with a dark brown carpet. There is one window in the middle of the wall that looks out over the grounds. Each room has two beds, two dressers, two desks and two closets, one for each student. //

Ever since the attack of the strange goop monster that crash landed in the Quad just outside of the dorms, Kael has been hiding in the mansion. He only just recently got back to his room and he's already fidgeting on his bed. Gnawing on his lower lip, he lets out a soft whine as he's torn to do something. He swings his legs over the edge of the bed and starts to make powerful strides towards the door.

The former ice mutant has already been focusing on finding Kael. After a brief period of temperature adjustment, about two hours, Max is feeling great now. He makes to the door, knocking on it. "Kael? You in there, bud?" He asks, a bit excited to share something with his boyfriend.

Kael already had his hand on the door when he heard his boyfriend's voice. That door couldn't have swung open fast enough, and Kael goes to wrap his arms around Max; hugging him close for a good few moments before he blinks and leans back a bit. "You're not cold anymore!"

Max's grin couldn't be larger at this point. The blonde haired boy quickly steps in, closing the door. "I know!" He says, a bit excited to not have that lingering cold sensation. After the door is closed, it doesn't take Max long to sit on Kael's bed. "I figured we should take advantage of this…while it lasts. You know, if you want." He informs his boyfriend.

Kael lets out a soft laugh. Suddenly, losing his powers isn't so bad! He practically runs over towards the bed, leaping up to catch his boyfriend in a hug and pin him down to the bed. "Don't mind if I do."

Max is going to make the most of this time he's got. "They said they're not sure when we'll have our powers back, but until then, it's like I never had them." He says, wrapping his arms around Kael and giving him a gratuitous kiss on the lips. Hoping to maintain that for a good while as his boyfriend lay on top of him.

Kael mmns into the kiss; smiling around it before he breaks it off. "I know what you mean. But if this is the punishment for that thing taking our powers? Then by all means, keep them for the time being." He grins and then hugs Max close. Wanting to relish this for a good long time.

"Yeah." Max offers, leaning his head to rest on Kael's. Max's human temperature is actually a little higher than 98.6. He is warm to the touch, he really misses that sometimes. But soon, the boy brings his lips to Kael's. Moving in for another kiss to his boyfriend.

Kael smiles wide at the warm touch he's getting before he kisses Max on the lips, breaking it off to kiss him on the forehead. "I think I may miss this warm touch. But…" He goes back into kiss Max on the lips for a good half a minute before breaking it off to whisper, "I don't care."

"Enjoy it while it lasts, buddy." He says, after Kael whispers to him. Max is loving this, the first time Kael could truly enjoy Max's touch without the cold. It's certainly a happy experience for him.

Kael smiles, kissing Max's cheek afterwards as he sits up on his bed; hugging his boyfriend into his lap. "Though I am going to miss my lovely air conditioner during the night." He snickers softly, kissing the back of Max's head once more. "But, I can get over it."

"You'll have that back, soon I think. Who knows." Max offers as he sits in Kael's lap. "Nate was real brave out there, so were you." He mentions of the mini-invasion that occurred earlier.

Kael lets out a soft laugh before he says, "Brave? I wouldn't call myself that. I didn't really do anything." He rests his head on top of Max's, letting out a soft sigh.

"Well, you didn't run away when you could have stayed and made sure people were safe." Max says, looking to Kael, resting his head against Kael's.

Kael grins. "Okay, you got me there. But, I was really worried about you." He wraps his arms around Max's chest; hugging him close. "I didn't want to see you get hurt. And I was about ready to send what I could at the thing, but then I realized I had nothing to send."

Max laugh-snorts at Kael's saying. "All that thing did was touch me, it was useless after he got July's power. Being all stretchy and stuff."
Kael chuckles a bit. "I didn't even notice that it got July's power. But I guess that it'd make sense. What happened after Nate pushed me towards the inside to run, I kept on running that I didn't look back."

Max inhales, before explaining. "He pulled me back, and then I got my powers taken away." He says, following another round. "Then it just turned into a clusterfuck. The green goo hit anybody it could, it was over after he got July. Too easy to stretch out and touch everyone."

Kael blinks softly. "Wow… I'm glad I kept running then." He looks down at Max, kissing at the back of his head softly before he whispers, "It's kinda scary, hm? How something can just crash down from space… and cause this much panic?"

"You know. It would have been weird…if it didn't happen three times in all the time I've lived here…" He says, completely honest. Max won't lie about the things that have happened around here.

Kael gives Max a look, an unseen quirk of his brow as he says, "You're going to have to enlighten me on this. I've only been here a short time."

"First time, was when I just joined. There was a strike team that hit the mansion. I was dressed in my Michaelangelo ninja turtle costume for halloween. For the record, they are REALLY hard to run in." Max says, holding Kael's hand. "Second time, these, blue Zoidberg lookin' goofs came over, took some people around the city. And then, the invasion that happened last year. And now mister walking jell-o mould."
Kael blinked a bit, and looks down at MAx. His hand tightening on his boyfriend's hand as he says, "Wow. You really see it all here, don't you. One way or another, you'll see something that threatens something."

The formerly chilly nuisance looks to Kael, turning his head. "Basically…yeah." He says… before commenting: "Any other place, that would be considered really weird. Here, it's almost like a badge of honor."

Kael laughs brightly. "So I've gotten my first shiny badge of Honor then?" He grins a bit, leaning his head down to kiss at Max's nose before he says, "Then I'm glad that I had you to thank for it."

"I'm glad these guys only wanted powers, not to abduct people." He says, never been abducted himself, and wouldn't want it to happen to him either. Max returns the nose kiss with one to Kael's.

Kael nods softly, kissing at Max's forehead afterwards before he says, "That is true. I think I'd've thought tooth and nail to get you back if you were abducted."

"I'm glad you would. I'd have done the same thing." He offers, before sighing. "I'm totally staying with you tonight, B-T-Dub."

Kael snickers and leans back against his pillows. "You think that I'd have it any other way?" His arms keeping Max held close to him as he looks at the TV in the room. "Think anything good is on?"

"If there isn't I'm good just laying down with you." He says, lying next to Kael, rubbing his sock-clad feet on the exposed parts of Kael's legs. "And maybe taking a nap. This whole changing back from freezing thing takes a lot out of you."

Kael lets out a soft chuckle as he says, "Though a nap sounds very tempting at the moment." He bends a leg, trapping Max's under his calf. "How about we just skip the TV and go right for the sleeping."

Even before Kael can finish asking Max, soft snoring can be heard behind Kael's head. Seems Max is already ahead of the game for a nap. The mutant smacks his mouth before he gives another very very light snore followed by a faint whispering: "Dude."
