Xavier Mansion - Robin and Quinn'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.

Robin's room is usually meticulously maintained, since she likes things the way she likes them. At the moment, though, homework on her desk remains undone and clothing remain crumpled at the foot of her bed. It's still pretty clean, but not quite the way she usually likes it. This may be related to how Robin has been spending her time, recently: Blank is conspicuously absent and Robin is assuming her 'puppetmaster' position, eyes open and gaze blank.

There's a soft knock on Robin's door as Robyn stands behind it. He's been wanting to visit her but has been putting it off, maybe cause he knows it's gonna be hard for the two of them. He's dressed in his usual style with a little bit of hair growth on his chin as if he hasn't shaved in a few days. Like with most teen males, a few days of not shaving brings the slightest bit if scruff. Nothing overwhelming.

Robin doesn't look over at the door, and instead calls, "Come in, the door's unlocked." Her stare remains blank, but the gaze shifts a bit towards the closed door. She is wearing kitten-patterned pyjamas, and seems like she must have been at this since she woke up.

Robyn walks in and closes the door quietly behind him. "Hey Robin." He says looking around. "Mind if I have a seat? I just wanted to see if you were okay?" He knows he hasn't been so that's why he wants to check on her. After all Robyn knows how much Skyler has done for Robin.

Robin nods her head slowly and continues to follow Robyn with her gaze. The blank expression is reminiscent of her puppet's usual dead stare. "Hi. Have a seat. I'm fine, just fine." Her speech is a little bit distracted, but she's clearly still able to respond. "Everything is going to be okay, Robyn."

Robyn sits on the edge of her bed and just looks at Robin for a bit, he's not sure if she's really okay or not. "I..guess that's good. I just know with Skyler…I thought you might need a friend." He says pushing his hair back with both hands. "I…I saw Jono the other day."

Robin blinks once, which is only noticeable because it's the first time she's done so while speaking to Robyn. "Jono?" she repeats, "Didn't he disappear at the same time as…" There's a pause. "Everything is going to be fine. What happened?" Her fingers twitch a few times.

"How come I'm the only one who seems to have trouble believing everything is gonna be fine." Robyn says looking down at the floor. How come other people can deal with this sort of thing and he can't? "Yeah, he was. Same time as Jordan, but Jono…he was different. He wasn't the same person. He also got into a really nasty fight with James, I don't know what happened just that James came back looking awful."

Robin bites her bottom lip and says, "It can't be anything but fine. If it wasn't going to be fine, I don't know what I'd do. It just can't be any other way." Her fingers twitch a few times again. She falls silent again, and whether she's mulling over it, or just ignoring Robyn's story until she speaks again, "Jono was different? Does he know where Skyler is, what happened to him? I don't think Jono'd be willing to say if he's beating up James."

"I didn't ask him about Jordan or Skyler, it was just so odd." Robyn says shaking his head. "Jono wasn't himself, he robbed a bank and destroyed the coffee house, and that's just the thing, it wasn't Jono but it was physically. Sinister…he's done something to them and I'm so scared Robin. I don't know if everything is going to be fine, I know I want them to be, I know Rashmi hopes they will be."

"No, I didn't really expect you to ask. It sounds like a stressful situation," says Robin. "Blank will find Skyler, and… and Sinister can't…" Her eyes close and she falls to her knees, Blank teleports back into the room and slumps down next to Robin. She continues speaking, no longer seeming quite so confident, "Sinister can't change him, right? Is it going to be alright, Robyn?"

Tears start to well up in Robyn's eyes and he shakes his head. "I don't know Robin." His voice sounding quite choked up. "I really don't know. I want them to be okay, I want them to be unchanged, but Sinister…he scares me Robin. What I've heard from people, he's…even Lorna and the Headmaster are scared."

Robin crawls towards her bed and climbs up onto it to give Robyn a hug, voice shaky, "I want them to be okay, too. If… if he's changed, I just don't even know. He's so important to me. He has to be okay. He's always been my hero…"

Robyn hugs Robin back and leans against her. "God I hate crying." He says giving a small smile. "I don't know Robin, I'm sorry if I'm making you scared. He'll be okay. Okay? Skyler will be fine. They'll get him back and Addison will be able to help if anything is wrong." He's not sure if he believes it and he doesn't usually talk like that but he feels he has to reassure Robin.

Robin says softly, "I'm going to keep looking for him until he's back. I know that I won't be able to help, but I have to do something… and I really, really hope that it really will be okay." She leans back and wipes her eyes softly.

"I want them to, so badly. I don't know what'd happen if I lost Jordan. I do love him Robin. I dunno if I'm too young to say that but it was hard enough during the demon thing. But, it just sucks so much." Robyn's not really pessimistic unless it's this type of situation. "There are people looking, I know that. Just..if Blank finds anything, be careful." Robyn then looks over at Blank wondering something. "If Blank gets hurt, what happens to you?"

Robin shakes her head and says after a bit of hesitation, "Nothing too bad…" This doesn't really seem to be the whole truth, but Robin doesn't seem to be volunteering much more at the moment. She nods and says, "And I think I know how you feel, Robyn. I mean… I'm young, and I think I love Skyler. He's wonderful… I'm just so scared that eventually, not everything is going to be okay. But I have to tell myself that and believe it or else I will go insane in here."

"I'm afraid I'm going to get my hopes up and then it'll hurt more if the worst happens." Robyn says as he admits that to her. "At least I'm sleeping and eating this time." During the whole demon thing Robyn just stopped taking care of himself but things were a bit different then. "I just want to know why this is happening, why Skyler? Why Jordan, Jono and the others?"

Robin is able to sleep, but that's because remaining in her puppeteer position as much as she has lately has been pretty exhausting. "I don't know why the others, but… with his power Skyler can be anything Sinister wants… and that's what's scary to me." She looks down at her hands, "Because everything that Sinister wants is nothing I want. And… I just can't lose him. I can't."

Robyn gives Robin a tight hug and kisses her lightly on the top of the head. He's just always liked her and always felt close to her as a friend. From the time when they both got kidnapped, to the going through the fairy tale thing together, to having the same name, he's just always liked Robin. Because of this, he wants to promise her everything will be okay, that she won't lose him, but Robyn can't. He can't promise what he's not sure off, he can't make a promise he can't keep, a promise where if the worse happens, can never come true. "I don't want you to lose him Robin, I really don't. Let's just wish that we get those we love back, okay?"

Robin returns the hug and says, "I hope that we do, I really do. And if Blank finds Jordan, I'll do everything I can to get him back, too. I promise you that." She nods her head and continues to hold Robyn. "I will wish at every chance that everything will turn out okay this time."

"Thanks Robin." He whispers to her pushing her hair back. "If you need someone to talk to, you can find me. I'm just learning it's okay to lean on others and it's okay to be upset. We're not alone." Robyn says giving her one last hug before getting up and stretching. "I gotta get the last bit of home work done before going to bed. I'll find you later?"
