Xavier Mansion - Pool

A large Olympic size pool sits outside at the edge of the property over looking Breakstone Lake. The pool, always heated to the right temperature, starts at a depth of 4 feet at the shallowest end, and gradually reaches a depth of 20ft. A diving board sits at the far end of the pool. Off to the side of the shallow end, a hot tub is built into the ground for those wanting to relax. Pool chairs and tables sit along the side of the pool for those just wanting to enjoy the sunshine.

Even though Robyn is in his own frame of mind, he's still got the Frog urge to be in the water and at the moment the oversized frog is resting in the water, gliding around gently. He doesn't care that it's dark out and that noones really out here, he's actually finding the quiet easy to deal with at the moment.

Robin glances around as she almost sneaks into the pool area. She used to be very fond of swimming whenever the chance arose, and it's always calmed her nerves a bit, but has been a bit too self-conscious to try. At least when it's bright out. She's currently wearing a jacket and a pair of shorts, but she pauses when she sees some motion in the pool. Her eyes widen a bit and she tries to make out what's in there. When she sees the frog she says, "R- Robyn?"

Robyn kicks with his long legs and slides up to the side of the pool, resting his frog arms on the side. "Yeah it's me out here. I needed to relax my thoughts." He says pushing himself up out of the water. "I have that frog urge for water and it just felt so dry inside. At least I'm not convinved I'm a prince right now, but I wonder if finding a princess really would help." He just starts to vent some of his thoughts with out even thinking.

Robin blinks a few times and shakes her head and says, "I was just, well, I was going to do the same thing, just…" Maybe not now. She scratches her head lightly and says, "I guess I've been convinced I've been Cinderella a lot of the time, but I've… I've been seeing other things, too. I feel like I'm just losing my mind."

"July actually told me about the mirror thing, I wish I could help figure out what it ment. I don't like being a frog." Robyn says almost sounding pathetic. "Just what? Why don't you go for a swim, at least the pool is heated." Robyn says resisting the urdge to flick out his long tounge at something.

Robin shakes her head and says, "It just seems so familiar to me. The voice and everything…" She shrugs and then answers Robyn's question honestly, "I dunno. I guess I'm just self-conscious. I figured nobody's be out here if it's so late. I look stupid in a bathing suit."

Robyn looks at Robin and smiles a bit, which is weird considering what he is. "Self conscious, right now I'm a frog, a naked frog, you don't have anything to be self conscious about around me at the moment." He says chuckling a little. "It's a familiar voice? I heard you went back to the mirror you saw it at and nothing."

Robin sighs and nods, "Well, considering I'm not dressed to keep warm, I probably will go in for a swim…" She starts unzipping her jacket and then nods at Robyn, commenting, "Nothing at that one. But I've seen and heard the same thing at other mirrors now. I don't know what to do."

Out of respect for Robin, and the fact that she said she's self conscious, Robyn adverts his eyes as best as possible. "I don't know either I just know…I hate being a frog. I could deal with it at first cause I thought it would be over soon but, I only have four fingers Robin." He says as the little things about being in the form he's in is starting to bother him.

Robin removes the jacket and the shorts. Because of the magical thing called tape, there's no bulge or anything on her one piece swimsuit, but it still does look a little out of place on Robin's slight, boyish frame. She slips into the pool and then says to Robyn, "I know… I'm sure that it's tough to be not yourself. I think if we help the voice in the mirror, everything will be better. I just need to find out how…"

Now that Robin is in the water, Robyn turns his eyes back. He doesn't care about her really being a boy as he was always taught to be yourself growing up and respect others for being themselves. "Let's see, maybe try talking to one of the mirrors, begin it with 'Mirror Mirror on the wall'? Or…see if the voice answers you back?"

Robin nods her head slowly and says, "I'll try that. I mean… I really have no experience with these things." Even though she is underwater, she still covers herself a bit when Robyn looks back at her, keeping in a place where she can touch the bottom. "I want to just pull whoever is in there out."

"I'm still a mutant in training, I was kidnapped along with you a while back, so I'm not good at these things either." Robyn says with a chuckle. "You said the voice sounds familiar, does it sound like a female or male voice?" He asks trying to figure out what he can do to help.

Robin nods her head a couple of times and says, "I'm picking up tricks for my mutation, but… I dunno." She gestures towards the entrance to the pool area, where Blank seems to be standing. "Usually she's just right next to me. But right now, I guess she's picking up on how much I'd rather not be seen." She shrugs and then shakes her head, "And… It's a female voice…"

"Female voice…" Robyn says trying to think of who it could be. "Did it sound like one of those voices like in a cartoon? Like Disney or something?" He's just throwing stuff out there right now. "Robin, I really don't care what you look like, honestly. What I care about is who you are, you really don't have to be embarassed in front of me, please." He says trying to help her feel less self conscious but he's not usually the type to be good at it.

Robin shakes her head and says, "Sorry… I don't think you are judging me or anything. Honestly, it's more just me judging myself… And I know I shouldn't be. It's not my fault that…" she trails off and then shakes her head once again. "Anyways… it doesn't sound like anything from a cartoon or anything. It just sounds… kind of familiar. It's like tip of my tongue the whole time, but I just can't remember."

Robyn thinks about what she said for a while. "I think I'm as much of a dead end as you are, probably more since I haven't heard the voice. It's alll connected somehow and maybe once we find the connection, we can maybe find a way to get back to normal. And maybe I can find the owner of the golden ball I found a while back." Robyn says not even realizing he's slipped into Frog PRince for a second there.

Robin shakes her head and says, "It's all connected. It'll all be solved, I'm sure of it, but if there's anything I can do to end the curse early… I'll do it." She looks at Robyn and frowns slightly, "Being stuck in a body that's not yours…" She trails off and then shakes her head, "Well, I'll do whatever I can to figure this out. Right now I'm just trying to calm myself."

Robyn looks at Robin and nods at her slowly, finally understanding what it's like to be her to a degree. Feeling like youre in the wrong body. "I'll see what I can do and I'll help you with whatever I can to figure it out. I think I'm gonna get going though and give you your alone time. I'm gonna go see if Jordan will let me sleep on his pillow." Robyn says smiling to Robin before he leaves. "And Robin…" He doesn't finish his sentance but just nods at her before hopping off.
