Xavier Mansion - Recreation Room

What was once the Parlor has been turned into a Recreation Room for the students. A nice plush carpet meets the light blue walls giving it a homey feel. A pool table at one end, a foos ball table at the other, and entertainment center with video game systems, movies, and of course, cable TV. Big comfy chairs and couches surround a coffee table for comfortable loafing. Long glass windows with a pair of French doors line one side of the room bringing in plenty of light during the day. The main rule in here is to clean up after yourself.

It's early in the morning and most students are either just getting up for morning exercises or enjoying the last hour of sleep before they have to get breakfast and go to class. Robyn's of the later crowd, but he's not in his room. The television is on, playing the same DVD intro over and over of The Crow. Robyn himself is asleep on the couch, still fully clothed and a few cookies are still on the table in front of him.

Mikhail has been busy for the last few hours, but now hes looking for Robyn and has followed his scent to the Rec Room, at the moment hes just wearing a pair of black shorts and his hair if laying flat, there are spots of clay here and there on his face, when he gets into the rec room and sees Robyn asleep he smiles and sits on the other couch to wait for him to wake up.

It's that weird feeling that you get when you sleep, that you know someone's there and that they're looking at you, and that's what wakes Robyn up. "Where am I?" Is his first grumbly comment as he looks around. "Oh, I must have fallen asleep here, Mikhail…hey." He says rubing his eyes. Robyn's sporting one interesting case of bed head right now, hair sticking up all over the place.

Mikhail grin when Robyn wakes up and tries not to laugh at Robyn's hair, "Hey there Robyn, are you ok?", why isn't Robyn sleeping in his bed?

Robyn sits up and yawns with a nod. "Yeah, I'm okay. I guess I just fell asleep in here watching a movie. Sorry." He says trying to flaten his hair a bit, unsuccessfully. "I didn't expect to spend the night in here. What's up Mikhail, what's with all the clay on your face?"

Mikhail laughs at Robyn's attempts to fatten his hair, "Errm, its mud, i fell over" Damn, i thought i got it all off, when he watched Robyn do it he never got that messy, "Dont you have to be in bed by cerfew?, didnt somebody come down to check?"

"I don't know, and the curfew is that you have to be back at the school by a certain time, not in your dorm." Robyn says since he's never gotten in trouble for staying in the art room till 2am. "Mud? So how you've been doing Mikhail?"

Mikhail nods, "Yes, mud and im doing good, what about you?, i heard you went home the other day, how'd it go?", hes worried about Robyn, he had a bit of a breakdown a couple of weeks ago, he wants to make sure hes ok now.

Robyn nods. "Yeah, I went home on Saturday and got back on Sunday, it wasn't that long but it was nice. I missed my Mom and Dad." Robyn says as he's close with his adopted parents. "Now I just have to figure out how to get to know a twin brother I never knew I had who doesn't belive we're twins but that he's an alien." Robyn just shakes his head at that one. "Have you been feeling better about things? You're just in pants and covered in mud so are you back to your old ways?"

Mikhail looks confused, "You have a twin?, when did that happen?, and whats an alien?, he shakes his head, "Yeah im feeling better but im not going back to the way i was, what im wearing was just practical for what i was doing", why is everyone so bothered about who he used to be.

"Aparently." Robyn says with a shrug. "I guess it happened when I was born? I was adopted by my parents so they're not my real parents but they're my Mom and Dad to me. A few weeks ago this guy Richard comes here, new student. Looks -just- like me. He thinks he's an alien meaning, not from planet Earth. Like a Skrull or something but he doesn't think he's a Skrull just some other race that's from outer space." He guesses that's a good way to explaining it. "What were you doing that caused you to fall in the mud?"

Mikhail nods, he kinda gets it, "So hes like another Robyn?", he smiles, "So you're kind of like me, you dont know who your parents are either, if i meet Richard i should be able to tell if hes an alien or not", he bites his lip at Robyn's question, "I, er fell over".

Robyn laughs and shakes his head. "You're a bad lier Mikhail." Little does Robyn know, but then he knows how cold it is outside and that any mud is probably frozen. "Yeah, I guess he's like another me, just different. And yeah, I don't know who my birth parents are, I don't really care cause I love my Mom and Dad and they're great. I forget I'm adopted most the time."

Mikhail scowls, "Hey!, im a good lier, i mean im not lying", hmm another Robyn, weird.

"Yeah, you feel over in the mud when there isn't much mud around since it's so cold outside everything is frozen." Robyn teases Mikhail with a chuckle. "And you shouldn't lie, unless it's necessary." He says smiling as he leans forward to 'bap' Mikhail on the nose in a friendly manner.

Mikhail nods, "Okay, i'll stop lying", he grins, "Sorry".

Robyn nods and streches. "So what's up? I should probably go get ready for morning training but I really don't feel like getting into uniform yet." After all Alpha Squadron has Mondy Morning practices. "Thanks, sorry just my parents raised me to be honest so I try to be."

Mikhail shrugs, "Nothings up, i just came by to see how you were doing", he sighs, "We have squad practice this morning?, my uniform really bugs me", he grins at Robyn, "Its ok if ya wanna be a good boy".

Robyn winces at being called a 'good boy' and shudders slightly as it stirs up something inside him. "Please don't say that." He says pulling a pillow to his chest. Just something trigger memories he tries to supress. "What bugs you about the uniform? YOu can always alter it to look like Dr. McCoy's and have it just be shorts?"

Mikhail bites his lip when he realises hes said someting wrong, "Sorry Robyn, i wont say it again", he hmms, "I can alter it?, cool, can i change the colour as well?, its kinda hard to be stealthy in bright green.

Robyn shakes his head and smiles. "No, it's just brought back something I'd rather not thinking about." Then he nods. "Yeah, you can change it to be just pants and a belt, you can alter the sleeves, you just can't change the colour though. It has to stay white and green since those are Alpha Squadron's colours."

Mikhail nods, "Dont worry, i wont mention it again", he scratches his head, "I'll probably cut it down to shorts, thats probably best for movement".

"I cut the arms off of mine, I don't like having to do that stuff in long sleeves and the uniform is tight enough everywhere already." Robyn may wear tight jeans but his shirts aren't usually that tight. "Not like I'm much of a hand to hand combatant."

Mikhail nods laughing, "Yeah, they are pretty tight", then shrugs, "Hand to hand is pretty much all i got if it comes to a fight".

"Hey, it's not a bad thing. At least you're not like Annalisa on our team, the fire user who refuses to use her powers cause she's so scared of them." Robyn says forgetting for a moment about Mikhail's fear of fire. "So, sorry Mikhail, I didn't mean it like that. I just meant that, you at least train and do well with your powers and kick ass."

Mikhail shrugs, "Dont worry about it, im gonna have to face my fear at some point, just hopefully not now", he grins, "On the upside i dont need to learn how to control my powers, im just a bit primal".

Robyn smiles at Mikail and nods. "You're lucky there. I have to learn how to do a lot of things with mine. I still gotta learn how to protect my mind from things happening, so I don't end up hurting those I care about unintentionally again." He says running a hand through his unkempt hair. "We all have to learn how to work as a team better though."

"You'll get it eventually, and if you need a hand with anything, i'll try and help" he bites his nail, "You got plans later?"

"I don't think I have plans later, though I might be haning out with Jordan." Robyn's been spending a lot of time with him since he got back. "Thanks, if I need a hand I'll definately find you."

Mikhail nods, "Cool, i gotta go now, i need to shower and get changed, see ya later", he gets up ant walks out.
