Xavier Mansion - Medical Bay

The Medical Bay contains the latest medical equipment to patch up students and X-Men with the smallest and worst injuries. Six beds line the walls for injured patients. Equipment lines the walls, medicine in the cabinets, and more serious medical supplies locked in cabinets. One this about this room it screams sterilization.

With recent revelations and recent altercations, Jordan hasn't been coming down too often to the Med Bay. He's come down now, though, knowing that Robyn's down here and still hurt. He has to let him know a few things. He's not happy. That much is a given and quite obvious. But, that's the way of life. Especially when one wears an X on their belt.

It's been a stressful time for Robyn and there's a lot on his mind. He's awake right now, staring at the ceiling of the repaired medbay. Jinx is still asleep so he lies there quietly, the words which Emma told him earlier weighing on him. He's still recovering from his many injuries, concussion, head wound, road rash, broken arm and ribs and internal injuries.

Seeing Robyn in that state, Jordan's fighting to keep control of himself. There's an occasional white streak across his body. But he's keeping control. He moves to the end of the bed and waits, to see if he's actually awake, or asleep with his eyes open.

Seeing someone at the end of the bed, Robyn looks up and smiles as soon as he sees it's Jordan. "Jordan." He says a hint of relief in his voice as it's one of the three people he was hoping to see, two of them he knows it's impossible. "James is possessed by some 17,000 year old evil bitch."

A white stroke crosses his face completely at that. "Of course. Someone's always possessed. Or kidnapped. Or hurting. This place is poison." He says softly. "You… me… James… everyone gets hurt." He offers, looking away. His mind is starting to be made up. "I can't take much more of it. You're in the bed, and it's making me want to hurt someone."

Robyn wants to reach out and grab onto Jordan, he wants that comfort but since it's his torso that contains most of his injuries, it's hard to move. "It's my own fault Jordan, that I'm hurt. No one else's. I made a bad choice and I had to pay for it. So did Jinx." He says feeling guilty. "I'll be okay, I'll recover just, it's okay Jordan."

"No, it's this place. It's… poison." Jordan quotes from the visitor he had. "You shouldn't be having to deal with it. You should be away from here. You should be where you're safe and cared for. This place isn't that place." He shakes his head, running a hand through his hair. "Can you name one person who's got it better since coming here? And I'm not talking about finding relationships. I mean, one person who hasn't been in superhuman fights… been hurt or possessed or kidnapped… who can honestly say that they're safe?"

Thinking on the answer Robyn agrees and disagrees with Jordan. "Honestly say their safe, no, I don't think there's such thing as being safe as a mutant. No matter where you are. But I will say Robin got it better coming here, granted it was with a weird sex change, but she's happier." There are other things he could probably think of given time but being put on the spot in his condition he can't name any. "There's no where safe for me or being cared for. I know you want me to be safe all the time but I've done this to myself. I went after Selene on my own not knowing what I was up against. That's why she pushed me in front of the car, cause I found out. If I didn't do that, I'd be safe."

"I'm probably leaving the school soon." Jordan states. All of that conversation has him quite angry. He can't focus right now. There's too much going on in that statement. 17000 year old bitch hurting Robyn. It is not his idea of safe. Nor is anything concerning the other Robin. "You should come with me." He says with a nod. "I got an offer. To go somewhere else."

The statement hits Robyn like a ton of bricks and his entire body tenses, he wasn't expecting that. He can't speak at first, he doesn't know what to say and then there's the invite and he bites his lip. "Where?" He asks if that will help him with the decision. Sure he wants to follow Jordan but he doesn't want to leave those he's become close with behind.

"A group that works to help mutants instead of waiting around for trouble to happen. A pro-active group." Jordan states casually. "I'll go there, go ahead and get my GED. Or go to school somewhere else while I'm working with them. It's kinda like an internship." At least, that's how he's explaining it. If he told more, he knows robyn would say no. He'll find out eventually though.

"A pro-active group. Jordan, you're talking about this place being dangerous and you want to go with a group that puts themselves into danger. And you want me to stay safe at the same time….I won't be safe doing that unless you plan on hiding me away." Robyn says as he's not sure what this pro-active group is. "I'm not a hero Jordan, but I can't stay out of trouble. If a friend is in trouble, I will help. And my friends are here but, I don't know. I…I don't want to lose you."

"You can't be safe if you sit on your ass and wait for things to come and hit you. When you do that, look what happens. Inferno. Sinister. Selene." Jordan says, a bit angrily. "I can't deal with this sit around crap anymore. It just makes it all worse. It makes things harder when they do come around." He explains. "Sorry if you feel it's not right. But not everyone agrees. As for losing, well… I don't know where I'll be going to school. I may still be nearby."

That's when Robyn realizes something, he can't go with Jordan. "I'm sorry." He says blinking a bit. "I love you Jordan, we can still be together but, I can't follow you. I want to but I know I can't. This place…I might get hurt here but I'm not a fighter. I'd rather wait and deal with it as it comes then go looking. I want to enjoy those few weeks of peace in between when I can." He says and he can't stop himself from blurting out. "I don't want you to go." He knows it won't stop him but he has to say it.

"I can't stay here and wait to be kidnapped AGAIN. To be possessed AGAIN. To be experimented on AGAIN. It's not right. It's not fair. It's not normal." Jordan states simply as he pales out all over, trying to maintain himself. "Fine. You stay." He says. "And if anybody here lets you get hurt…" He says, a little fire in his eyes.

Robyn does manage to push himself up, fighting back all the pain as he has to reach out and touch Jordan. His good hand closes on Jordan's arm and Robyn smiles sadly at him. "Jordan, I've always liked that you've been there to protect me but, I can also look out for myself. Thank you though, just because we're not going to different school doesn't mean this is the end. It's..it's just a hurdle okay? I love you, I want to be with you but…I don't know how to explain but, I need this place." It's given him confidence in some ways, it's helped him to become stronger in ways he didn't know was possible. I helped him find friends that are just as important as family.

For Jordan, it's done things in a different way. It's shown him that he needs to act. That he needs to do something. "Like I said. Stay here. And if anyone here causes you to be hurt, there will be hell to pay." He says simply, standing up. "I've got a call to make." He doesn't know how long it'll take for all of it to fall into place, but it won't be long, and he knows that. "We'll see what happens."

Robyn looks at Jordan and he grabs onto him, not letting him leave yet if he can. "Well see what happens but I haven't seen you in days, I don't know when the next time I'll see you is, at least give me a kiss good bye?" He is his boyfriend after all and Robyn needs that physical closeness, even if it's just for a second. He's upset right now but he's hiding it, trying to not think about what's to come. "And if anyone messes with you too badly, I won't let them get away with it."

"Wait until you're healed. We still have to make a trip to your parents." Jordan says, making at least THAT offer. "Since your weekend got interrupted." He points to all the damage.

Robyn's face falls to a kind of neutral look as does his voice as well once Jordan says wait. "Yeah." He says but his heart isn't in his words. "Emma also invited a few of us to take a weekend a place she has in Maine, I was gonna talk to you about it but, I guess you won't be around."

"Don't look so down. You know I sometimes can't control myself. AndI'm angry right now. I don't want to hurt youmore than you're already hurt." Jordan explains, as he nods. "Not this weekend, I hope."

"I doubt I'll be healed by this weekend." Robyn says as he came close to dying twice now. "Maybe once James or Connor are back in their own bodies." He shrugs a shoulder and takes a deep breath. "I know Jordan but right now, this has been the worst few days of my life, I just, something positive would be nice and Emma seems convinced I can help save James but there's nothing I can do but lie here."

"Exactly my point. They should have known already that something was wrong. That's why I don't trust them." Jordan states. "There's nothing negative going on with me. To me, this is a positive move." And it is. Just puts a little distance there is all.

"We knew, but we didn't tell anybody. We took matters into our own hands, Lucas, Jinx, Connor and me. And now with Connor gone, it's just Lucas, Jinx and myself. Forge saved me life, twice." Robyn says in regards to their team leader, or now Jordan's former team leader. He turns his head a bit so Jordan won't see his face, see how he feels, as he tries to hide it.

Jordan sighs. "He shouldn't have had to. Why didn't you tell anyone? Why did you… nevermind. That's what they teach here. Still. That's why I don't like it. At least there, we share all the information so we can make informed decisions as a group." Jordan rubs the bridge of his nose. This place is just making him angrier and angrier.

"Because, I was stupid. It's not the school's fault it's my own. I was worried Jordan. Worried for James. I couldn't stand seeing another friend possessed by someone and I had to do something. I didn't wait and just acted, it's my fault." And Robyn really does believe that. "If you're going to be happier with them Jordan, then go. Don't let me hold you back." And he doesn't say it in a mean way, it's more said to convey that he means it, that he's trying to encourage Jordan to do what he wants.

"I'll make sure you can always reach me." Jordan says with a nod as he looks back. He's tired of it. That much is obvious. When he goes, he's requesting at least a week of nothing before he does anything with them. A week to get used to things.
