NYC - City Hall Park

In front of the large white building with pillars, American Flags, and bell tower on top, is City Hall Park with its extravagant fountain. Four sets of black iron gas lamps sit on the four corners of the fountain, there the only gas lamps left in the city. Four spouts of water shoot in the center tier of the fountain and shower down into the water below. Four smaller pools sit on each side of the fountain where water pours into them from the main part. Benches sit all around the fountain with trees and flowers covering the grass behind.

Since it's summer and their are no classes, Daisuke decided to drag Jared, not that it was that hard, into the city and take him out for lunch. After a meal at a small Japanese place in the East Village, Daisuke has taken Jared to City Hall Park with it's large fountain in the middle and benches all around. He's found a spot for the two of them to sit and just relaxes, watching the water. "I used to come down here and draw a lot when I lived in Queens while Shu would sit there and read. We found this spot peaceful, I still do."

Jared grins and nods. He has enjoyed his day out with Daisuke, and no it was not hard at all to get him away from those evil evil math books. "I can see that, it is a pretty nice and relaxing spot. I always liked the beach for that, but since you don't have as many great beaches here in New York this would be a good place to just sit back and read."

"I don't even know how to swim or own a swimsuit so me and beaches would be weird." Daisuke doesn't find the thought of sitting around in the heat and sand all day to be a comforting thing. "And if you ever need help with math, just ask me. I'm good at math, I got straight A's." He offers to Jared noticing how much his boyfriend struggles sometimes, after all, they share the same room.

Jared grins and shakes his head, "Yeah, gonna have to change that. Everyone should know how to swim. I know your good with the math, but I love you too much to put you through trying to beat it into my hard head." Jared is a good Cali boy, in other words he is one of the lizard people. Just laying out in the warm sun, on hot sands, is one of life's great pleasures to him.

"I really don't mind, I like math and it might be easier learning it from someone than a teacher. I can show you all the tricks I used to remember certain things, and it's not like I'm trying to teach you calculus." Yes Daisuke took Calculus his senior year of high school. "And I'll let you teach me how to swim if you let me help you in math." It seems Dai likes that sort of thing.

Jared shrugs a little. Generaly he has not wanted Dai to help him cause he really just does not like math and does not want to assosiate it with someone he cares for. Of course, there is now the whole deal on the table to teach Daisuke to swim. "Hmmm, would I get to pick out your swim suit too?"

"I don't know, cause you'd probably pick me out a speedo or something and I'm not wearing that around the school." Daisuke says firmly. Sure he might be comfortable around Jared but that's about it. He's still very shy about his body even if most the scars are gone. "I'm not wearing anything that's going to show off my….stuff."

Jared pouty faces at Daisuke a moment before moving where he can wrap his arms around the othr teen. "Aww, where is the fun in that? You would look awsome in a little black speedo. Even one that is more covering than the bikini style I would want to pick out at the first choice."

Daisuke shakes his head. "Nope, not wearing it, maybe in private but not where other people can see me." He definately has that shy side to him and he's not letting Jared talk him into it. "That's the problem, I know you too well, I know how you think." Dai says with a laugh as he leans against Jared now that he's in his boyfriend's arms.

Jared grins and nips Daisuke's neck lightly as he is leaned agianst. "Don't you mean you know which head I think with? Still think you would be awsome dressed like that, make everyone around jealouse of the fact I am the one that gets to date you.'

Daisuke chuckles and nods. "That's exactly what I mean, and it's why you're no good at math." He teases Jared. "You'd think I'd be awesome dressed in anything and you're the only one I want to see me like that, noone else needs to see that but you." Daisuke says reaching over to hold Jared's hand, not caring who sees.

Jared grins and lets his fingers thread into Daisuke's. "Leo thinks like that more than I ever did and he does not have the problems I have with math. Although you are right about part of that, I think you would look awsome dressed in anything..or nothing. Mmm, this is really nice. Being with out, out someplace relaxing with no threats danger or drama at all. I could get used to this."

"I like it when it's calm. There's so much in my life that's happened that these moments seem so much better." Daisuke says. Noone's trying to kidnap him, hurt him, torment him, it's nice. "Maybe if we stay out here long enough I'll take you out for dinner too, or maybe we can hit a movie. We can act like we're a normal couple that doesn't get lost in time or fight alien invasions."

Jared mmms at the thought of being a normal couple. "That sounds good, although yougot lunch then Diner is my treat. Its not like I have anything else to spend the huge ass allowance the dads insist on giving me on. The new Harry Potter movie is out, after dinner we could always go to that, or find an arcade or something."

"Sure, the new Harry Potter sounds good. Those are movies I've actually seen." Daisuke says with a laugh and he actually saw a few in the theatre with his brother when they first started coming out. "Yeah well I have a huge inhertiance too that I don't know what to do with. Only living relative in all and it's not like we gave my Dad a funeral."

Jared hugs Dai a little tighter. "Can't help you much there. That is a problem I don't have. Just have the Dads that don't want to accept I am not into being spoiled. Heh, and for some reason that reminds me that I need to figure out which hospital is nearest to Mutant Town so I can go in and see what they have available for volenteer work, or even summer job type stuff there."

"It's a bit away from here, I can show you were Mutant Town is and we can walk around a bit." Daisuke says and it's obvious it doesn't bother him as much as it used to, actually he's become more grateful that he's gone and that he's someone in the past and not to worry about with the future. "I need to find another job or something, it's just, I have no clue what I want to do with my life."

Jared nods and is not that great with the sticky emotional stuff, frankly that scares him more than facing off agianst a super villian. "I know where it is, beent ehre a couple of times, just want to volenteer at a hospital, do the candy striper thing, and figure that might be the best one. Bound to be one that needs the help given how….the area is."

"And if it's in Mutant Town they probably wouldn't be opposed to your powers." Daisuke says with a nod. "Even if there isn't a hospital there might be a doctors office or a shelter type place that will be able to use your gifts. Me, I just have the voice and all, that and the other weird stuff, though the weakness detection comes in handy. And I'd bet you'd be cute in a candy striper uniform." He teases.

Jared laughs a little, "Your darn right I would be. Would not be the first time I was in one too. When I was 8 there were a couple of girls that did double duty as candy stripers and my baby sitters where Mom worked. I don't remember it much, but Mom said that some of the elderly ladies that were in the hospital regularly loved when they brought me in. As for my powers…was planning on keeping that on the Down low as much as possible. Want to get in and do a real job there and just let any little healing that goes on look like the hospital is just doing its job…you know?"

Daisuke chuckles and shakes his head. "You've got enough ego to spare for the both of us." He says in regards to Jared's confidence. He's just teasing and not being mean. "I know, you want the real experience. It's just you have a really cool power, being able to heal people. I mean most of us have powers that are aimed at combat and hurting people but yours are the oposite and I think that makes it really special since you can do what so many people can't."

Jared makes another cute pouty face at Daisuke for commenting on his ego. Most of it is cover and…well real ego in the face of his physical skills. "Now you make me feel guilty for wanting to trade with most of the people at the school. I would rather a power that lets me kick ass and take names…not that the enhanced strength, speed, and agility don't help with that. Just means any time I kick a guys nose in it is fixed by the time I can give him another good kick."

"Yeah but if something happened and there's a superhero fight going on and someone get's severly wounded, either one of your friends or a civilian, you have the power to make sure they live. I'm not trying to make you feel guilty Jar, I'm just saying." Daisuke says brushing the back of his hair once. "Maybe if you learn to control your healing so it's not always going off?"

Jared squeezes Daisuke. "I know, been trying on working on my powers. Been having a lot more luck working on my sensory powers. I get how cool my powers are, and kinda funny too given my mother was a ER Dr and Dad is a psychiatrist. Just some days I want something I can use to stop people instead…"
