Xavier Mansion - Living Room

Cream colored couches and chairs are placed among end tables and a coffee table. A large entertainment center covers one of the blue walls. The windows are set back a bit creating comfortable window seats for those who want to read.

After dinner, Robyn decided to relax in the living room for a bit and watch a movie though, it seems something happened to disturb his relaxation. At the moment the TV is on and playing the movie Mirrormask but Robyn doesn't seem to be watching it as he's lying on the floor seemingly unconscious at the moment.

Jordan's just finished his school work, and hasn't really had much luck finding something to do, so he figured he'd be social in the living room. Of course, there's a cruel connection between his entrance and the movie. After all, it's right at the scene where Elena's walking into the room with the dancing, singing figures. "Why do birds… suddenly appear? Every time… you are near?" JOrdan hears it and can't help but shake his head as his eyes alight on Robyn. He moves to sit down and put an arm over the other person. He knows Robyn won't mind. At the moment, he's on the 7.5 feet tall side.

As Jordan gets closer to Robyn, he'd notice something's a bit off as there's a cut on his forhead and some fresh blood. It seems that he passed out and feel forward hitting his forehead on the table not to far away. Though even though he can't be seen or heard by Jordan, Robyn's watching the whole thing in Astral Form, panicing that he can't seem to 'get back into his body'.

Jordan waits a moment before realizing that Robyn hasn't moved. At all. He leans up. "Robyn?" He asks, shaking the boy slightly before he sees the injury on his head. There's a gasp from the densomorph as he rises, shrinking somewhat, to about five and a half feet, in order to lift Robyn up. "I don't know what's wrong, but I'm getting you to the medbay." He sounds worried.

Eddie comes into the Living Room in shorts and t-shirt with the Human Torch and Spider-Man on it, humming a little tune. He's done with school work for the day as well and has decided to come down and see who's around to hang out with. "Umm…hey," he greets when he sees Jordan. He blinks upon seeing Robyn and then moves over quickly. "Oh man, what happened?"

It's either lucky or unlucky that Robyn can only stay in Astral Form for about five minutes right now, having extremely little to no control over his abilities. When Jordan gets him a bit closer to the door, Robyn can feel himself being dragged back into his body and his eyes shoot open with a gasp of breath.

"I don't know. I saw him laying on the ground, and I went to peek on him, and he was passed out. With the cut." Jordan says. He's shorter than he's ever been on campus, save the one time he was infinitesimally small. As Robyn's eyes fly open, he looks at him. "Hey, I'm taking you to the medbay. It's just me. Ok?" He's still walking.

Eddie seems to have pushed aside the questions of Jordan's height in his mind as he checks out the cut. "THat's not good," he mumbles. He glances around quickly as if checking for signs of someone having attacked Robyn. When Robyn suddenly wakes up, Eddie squeaks and falls back onto his rump. He's back up a moment later. "Robyn, what happened? Did you fall?" he asks, following along and trying to see how severe the wound is.

At least it's not a bad cut, with a bandaid, he'll be fine. "Jordan, I..I left my body." Robyn says knowning it sounds rediculous. "I was watching TV when all of a sudden I saw myself fall forward and hit my head but I couldn't get back in." He says putting an arm around Jordan letting him take him where ever.

Not bothering to hide anything, Jordan leans forward to kiss the injury lightly. Too bad he's not a healer. It'd be really cool. Ah well. "Left your body? Like… out of body travel?" Hey, he's a hero worshiper just like Eddie and Jared. "Or did you go to another place altogether?"

Eddie lets out a breath of relief. "It's okay, Jordan. The cut's not that bad. Don't need to go to the medbay. I'll just grab a first aid kit and he'll be fine," he says, offering a smile. He blinks after hearing Robyn's explanation and tilts his head to the side. He blushes when Jordan kisses Robyn and then looks at the injured teen for a moment, waiting for the answer to that question.

"I could see everything going on but I couldn't effect anything. And you couldn't hear me." Robyn admits as he's not sure. "Maybe out of body?" He says reaching up to touch his forhead. "Sorry if I worried you." Robyn says with a blush at the kiss but he doesn't hide the fact that he liked it. "I think this is the first time I've seen you shorter then me." Robyn says with a little smile, but he doesn't care.

Jordan slowly lowers Robyn to the ground and glares. He looks at himself and shakes his head. "Forget you ever saw it." He says plainly, growing back to his normal 6 and a half. "I still think we should get you checked out. "Sounds like projection of some kind. Maybe astral, but you were on this world, so maybe just a clairvoyant ability." At least, that's what he thinks. He could be very wrong.

Eddie jumps as Jordan growls and grows. "Umm…" he glances back and forth. "Let me patch him up first?" he asks, quickly moving off to retrieve the nearest first-aid kit. He returns a few moments later with the white case and a sheepish smile. "Yeah…sounded like astral projection," he chimes as he tries to get Robyn to sit down on the nearest chair so he can put some of the stuff he learned from Dr. Reyes to use.

Robyn blinks a bit at the glare and pulls away a bit. "I think I need to talk to Addison more. See if he knows what that was." He says sitting down a little irked by the glare. He wasn't being mean but then Robyn doesn't know Jordan's sensitive about his 'shrinking'. "It was scary, I just didn't know what was going on and I couldn't do anything."

"Sorry. I didn't mean to scare you." Jordan says at Robyn's pulling away. He actually has the decency to blush. There's a reason people don't know he can shrink. He hides it on purpose. He hates it. "I still think we should let the doctor look. No offense, but… I mean, I don't really know you that well." He says, shrugging to Eddie. He doesn't say it mean, but Robyn means a lot to him and he wants to be sure.

Eddie frowns a little, setting the case down and opening it up. "It's just a little cut," he says, pulling on a pair pf gloves from in the kit. "And Dr. Reyes was the one who taught me how to do this…" he trails off, squirming a moment before starting to clean, disinect, and then put a band-aid on Robyn's wound. "Here ya go," he says, leaning back. "Sorry about the antiseptic stinging like that," he adds.

Robyn smiles back at Jordan and reaches over to grab his hand. "I think I'll be fine Jordan, but if it'll make you feel better I can go to the medbay." He says as Eddie patches him up, hissing from the antiseptic. "Thanks for the patch up Eddie." Then he reaches up and touches his band-aid unconsciously humming the song that was playing when Jordan came in.

Popping his neck, Jordan nods. "As long as you're fine and safe." He says firmly, trying to toughen up his appearance. After all, he doesn't know Eddie. He can't look like a wuss or someone stupid in front of someone. That'd not be a good way to get things going right.

Eddie offers another little smile before leaning back and starting to pack things back up. "Don't worry about it, Robyn. This is why I learned this kind of thing…" he trails off. He glances up and sends a smile Jordan's way as well. "Don't play with the band-aid too much please…"

Robyn reaches over and squeezes Jordan's hand. "I'll be okay, it's just a cut. I'm more worried about what I did. All this power stuff is confusing." At least his powers to him. He stops touching he band-aid as Eddie asks him to stop. "Have you two met each other yet?"

"Well, then have someone who knows more about mental abilities work with you on it. I know you've been seeing Mr. Falk, but… tell him about this." Jordan offers, moving back over to put an arm on Robyn's shoulders. "No… we haven't."

Eddie nods. "Addison's really cool. He helped me figure out some awesome stuff about my powers," he says, grinning again. He then looks up at Jordan. "We haven't?" he blinks a few times. "Well…I'm Eddie Parker-Mayfair," he says, offering a hand to Jordan.

"I'll definitely tell him about this." Robyn says with a nod. "I know I need to figure my powers out they're just so confusing." He says leaning into the arm around his shoulders. He's met Eddie twice already but he doesn't know him that well.

"Jordan Ward. Though, when I was playing sports, most people called me by my middle name. Rex." Jordan says with a bit of a grin, shrugging. "I'm sure he'll know. There's nobody with my growth power, so I gotta figure it out on my own, really." He laughs.

Eddie smiles and then chimes in. "Actually there are a bunch of heroes and a few bad guys that can grow and do that shrinky thing you did," he says. "It's nice to meet you."

"So should I call you Rex then?" Robyn says grinning at Jordan with a chuckle. "Jordan just grows." Robyn says as he doesn't know he can shrink. He just figures that Jordan's real height is a bit shorter than him, but he won't mention that again. "I'm sure you'll be able to figure things out Jordan and I'll figure out my mind stuff. How long did it take you to get control over your powers Eddie?" Assuming he didn't have control at first.

"Actually, Tower, Goliath, Atlas, and Giant Man's powers increase their strength and durability with their size. The closest person, I -think- to my growth ability is Mass Master. But mine's not QUITE the same. I can still solidify some of myself at larger sizes. Or share it about my body. And, he can move a lot faster than I can. I can only hover at about ten miles per hour or so." Jordan chuckles, shrugging. "And no, You can call me whatever you want, Robyn."

Eddie quirks an eyebrow and shakes his head. "You two are cute together," he admits, blushing slightly as he says it.

Robyn looks at Jordan in surprise. "You can hover? Like a kind of slow flying? I didn't know that, that's kind of cool." He knows Jordan is a bit of a superhero fanboy and he smiles as he goes on about some heroes he knows and some he doesn't. "Wait..what?" He asks Eddie getting all flushed.

Jordan begins to rise from the ground. Slowly. Very slowly. "Yeah. Just slow movement. Probably to hold myself together, so that I don't flow away when I get too big." He shrugs lightly. He notes Eddie's mention and chuckles. "Well, I don't know that we're together, or anything…"

Eddie blinks and tilts his head to the side. "Really? But it really seemed like…" he trails off, gesturing vaguely at Jordan's lips and Robyn's head while blushing.

Robyn bites his lower lip and blushes. He's very timid when it comes to relationships but he has opened upto Jordan. "I don't really know either, we're just…" He looks at Jordan and shrugs, he just knows they have a crush on eachother.

"Yeah… we're just…" Jordan trails off as well, lowering himself to the ground and grinning at Robyn's blush. "It's alright. I don't think it's anything to be ashamed of."

Eddie tilts his head to the other side. "Yeah…there's no need to be ashamed," he offers a smile.

"I'm not ashamed.." Robyn says looking at Jordan. "Well I'm not ashamed of liking you it's just…I'm sorry I'm so timid about this all, this is just my first time experiencing this." He says smiling as he does like being around Jordan.

"Good. You should never be." Jordan says with a nod. "We'll figure things out as we go. There's no rush." And that's how he actually feels about it.

Eddie just offers a supportive smile. He's got not much to say so he just stands but quietly.

Robyn leans in and hugs Jordan smiling. He's happy that Jordan is willing to take it as it goes. "I think I'm gonna head to my room now." He says pausing before giving Jordan a quick kiss on the cheek. "Thanks for patching up my cut Eddie. I'll see you guys in the morning."

"Wait for me." Jordan says, moving after Robyn. "I gotta hit the hay myself." He gives Eddie a quick nod as he starts trotting along behind the mental one. "Yeah. Thanks for taking care of him. But I still wanna get him to get it checked out. You can never tell when there might have been something more."

"Goodnight," Eddie offers, giving a little wave. He shakes his head at Jordan's protectiveness and looks around. "I forget what I was going to do…" he trails off. After a moment, he shrugs and decides to head home to spend the night with Ricky.
