Xavier Mansion - Cafeteria

There is a large cafeteria for the students. Blue and white tiled floor lines the floor and there are large windows that let in a lot of light. Six sturdy blue plastic chairs sit around each white table. There are a few snack and soda machines along with a few microwaves and refrigerators sit along one wall.

It's early Wednesday morning and Mikhail has come down to find what he left down here last night, today hes dressed in blue jeans, a light grey t-shirt, a dark grey jacket with two purple strips around the shoulders, a wood bead necklace (like the ones surfers wear), black and purple sneakers, his dyed blond hair is gelled into spikes, and he is wearing blue contact lenses, he currently looking under one of the tables.

Dallas wanders in to grab food before his morning run and workout which has to be indoors thanks to all the snow now. Usually he's the only one in cafeteria this time of the morning so seeing Mikhail is a bit of a surprise. Wearing a pair of gray Xavier's sweat pants, blue gym shoes and a black Xavier's t-shirt that fits a bit snugly, he's also carrying a letter jacket in yellow and maroon from his old school under one arm. He smiles faintly and says, "Mik. Lose something?"

Mikhail smiles when he hears Dallas' voice, they haven't spoken for a few days, he comes out from under the table with a t-shirt in his hand, "Heya Dallas!, yea but i found it", he stands up and sits on the table, "How are you today Dallas?"

Dallas blinks at the contact lenses but he just shakes his head, already having had this conversation with Mikhail. The t-shirt gets an arched eyebrow and he says, "We generally dress and undress in the locker rooms or our own rooms. But hey, if it works for you." His tone is joking and amused. "And I'm good. Getting ready to get rolling for the day." He grabs a bottle of juice and a bagel from the glass-fronted cooler that is stocked for between meals snacks and those with odd hours. "What are you doing up at this hour?"

Mikhail grins and nods, "I'll bear that in mind, get changed in my room, got it", he stretches, "What are you doing today?", when questioned about why hes up so early he looks confused, "Im always up at this time, i dont sleep as much as everyone else".

Dallas blinks and says, "Ah. I think you told me that and I forgot." He sits down, cracking open his bottle of orange juice and eating the bagel plain. That casual stretch gets a covertly appreciative glance and a faint spike in his scent but, perhaps oddly in contrast to previous weeks, not a strong or intense reaction. He pauses a moment and then asks, "So, what's on the schedule for today?"

Mikhail doesn't notice the change in Dallas' scent, for some reason his senses arn't as strong as usual at the moment, when asked what hes doing today he shrugs, "I was thinking of heading into New York, you wanna come?"

Dallas sighs. "Detention. Still working on the boathouse with Robyn and Lucas." He sips at the juice and says, "Which is about as much fun as you'd imagine." He shrugs and says, "Apparently, Addison believes that this is going to bring us together and make me stop thinking of him as a jerk." And then a faint smirk. "Which just goes to show that even telepaths don't know everything."

Mikhail scratches his head, "So you're in detention because Lucas is an asshole?, i'll be back in ten minutes", he gets up and starts to leave the room.

Dallas stands and says, "Wait! Mik, what are you planning on doing?" He tries to get between his friend and the door. "You can't keep beating him up. I heard about the thing in the cemetery." His voice is very reluctant as he says, "Like it or not, here is the best place for him. And if you beat him up again, he may leave. And go someplace we can't keep an eye on him. Doctor Parker-Mayfair says that he wasn't really responsible for what the demon did while it was in charge of him. And if he's still a jerk other than that…." He shrugs and sighs faintly. "There are a lot of them in the world. And not enough time to smack them all down."

Mikhail sighs, "Why does everyone assume i'm gonna resort to violence, maybe i was just going to go talk to Addison, but no its Mikhail so hes obviously gonna do the wrong thing", he growls, "Dr Parker-Mayfair is talking crap!, if it was all the demon why did he act just like Lucas?, target the same people Lucas did?, and trust i have more than enough time to smack down every Lucas out there!"

Dallas shrugs and says, "Because you have a history of hitting people who annoy you? A lot like I do? And because it's what I'd want to do if he were screwing up your life?" He sighs and says, "Good luck with Addison, by the way. He doesn't listen to anybody. And I don't know. Maybe because the demon just wanted to inflict maximum damage on everybody. Lucas included. I /do/ know that Dr. P doesn't talk crap. He's the reason I'm not a basket case right now. And thanks to him I had the guts to take a chance and end up with …. things changing in my life."

Mikhail sigh, "How else do yo deal with someone who annoys you?", well he does know one way but hes not gonna say that out loud, "And he shouldn't be allowed to screw with your's or Robyn's lives, he should be kept away from people", he bites his lip, "I'm not going to see Addison, i was bluffing, chances are if i go and see him hes gonna start dishing out punishments for some of the things i've done", he puts a hand on Dallas' shoulder, "Im glad he gave you some perspective"

Dallas grins at Mikhail. "Avoid them? Not that I /can/ right now, but still." He shrugs and says, "Well, we're being punished for a fight that happened back before Lucas was even possessed. So… what are you going to do? Apparently justice is slow but sure." And then an amused look as he returns that shoulder clasp with one of his own, "You should talk to him. He really is a good guy. And has good advice." And then, clearing his throat. "Ok, that's enough girly crap for one day. Want to come work out with me? Or take a run in the woods? If I shadow up then I might even be able to keep up with you."

Mikhail nods, "Ok, i'll avoid the people that annoy me, and if they still annoy me, then i'll hit them", he grins, "I haven't been punished for anything yet, do you think they're just saving it up for one big punishment?", "I dont need to talk to the Dr, i've got nothing bothering me, i'm very happy", when Dallas asks if he wants to go for a run he grins, "You could have ten shadows and you wouldn't be able to keep up with me".

Dallas laughs and shakes his head. "Dude." And then he pauses. "Actually, you know, I don't really have much better advice for you than that. Just try to do the avoiding a lot." And a wide grin, "Let's see, wild boy. Let's see." And with that he tosses away the remains of this breakfast and leads Mikhail towards the door.
