Rating: PG

Xavier Mansion - Quad

There is a square side walk of pavement with a nice grassy area in the middle with a few stone benches and trees along the corners. The pavement leads to the paths to the grounds of the school, the Dining Hall in Xavier's and the Ramsey Dormitories. It's not particularly large but it's a nice place for students and teachers to relax and enjoy the outdoors.

Even though it's not much past 10 a.m., it's already been a long day for James. Having just come from a DR session that he requested, the hyena spent the morning much more focused than usual; hitting harder and generally just coming off as angry. It's almost been 5 days since he got out of the medbay. And while the visible scars have nearly healed, it's obvious the unseen ones have not. Now, out of the DR he's taking it easy on the far edge of the quad, having successfully avoided contact with everyone. Including his squad leader and an after-action report.

Kenta was hoping to talk to James after the practice but with him doing his vanishing act afterwards it made it a bit harder. So he's been on a Hyena hunt. Eventually he finds him in the Quad and James would be able to tell Kenta's coming over from his scent, that scent that always has that lingering cigarette smell. "Hey James, there you are. You got a bit to talk?" For Kenta it is important but he doesn't want to scare James with the news either.

Laying flat on his stomach, arms under his chin, James asks, "Whats up?" His ears briefly fold back, the standard feral emotion broadcaster for, 'hmph.' He rolls over on to his back and looks up at Kenta, "Sorry I didn't check in after the trip. But, things kept coming up. And, now I gotta figure out how to get back and get the van and stuff."

Kenta waves a hand. "Don't worry about it and don't worry about the van and stuff right now, something will be figured out." Kenta then sits down next to James and takes a deep breath. "Listen…about your trip, I'm just gonna cut to the chase. I talked to Selene. It seemed fishy to me, how fast she seemed to kow you were in trouble so I asked her. Apparently you two share some kind of link still, something about a sigil so when you were in trouble, she felt it. I don't know too many details about it but I can tell you what she told me if you want."

There's bad news, and then there's bad news. And James has gotten a lot of it lately. From surprises like, 'passed out? No you were dead for a moment' to 'Rashmi and Mags are BFFs' and beyond, James has already reached capacity on his Mutant BS-o-Meter. This news sends it over. Sitting bolt upright, he practically shouts, "Son of a bitch! " Eyes wide, he looks over at Kenta, "I don't care how we get it off! I want it off right now!"

Kenta does't blame James in the least for reacting like he does, actually it's about right. "I…I don't know how to get it off without destroying you, according to her. She also talked about some kinda transfer which I tried to get more details on but apparently she didn't like me thinking she was a bitch and stormed off." Go figure. "We can always go talk to Dr. Stranger and see what he knows cause right now, I don't know how to remove it and according to her, she doesn't either."

Mouth agape, James gives Kenta a look of disbelief, "She doesn't know how?! How'd she put it there to begin with? And, what do you mean, destroying me? Seriously, what is wrong with her?" Probably more than anyone will ever know. James don't know who Stranger is, but anyone with Dr. in his name has to know more than irresponsible magic users, "When can we go? Is right-frekin-now too early?"

"I don't really know Dr. Strange but I can see if I can get together, you and I, with him a soon as possible." Kenta says as he doesn't want James in this position either. "I think she put it there…honestly, I'm not sure but right now it just lets her feel when you're in trouble. I also want to look into what this 'transfer' thing is too. CAuse if she can transfer the link from you to have it with someone else…that could be an opiton for now."

"He's a doctor right? Can't we like go in and just wait in his office until someone doesn't show up?" James says, eyes still wide, "This is an emergency. They have rules for that, right?" He stands up and looks down at Kenta, "Transfer? She doesn't even know how she put it there, right?" Not quite. "How's she gonna transfer that without destroying me or whatever you said."

Kenta takes a deep breath and looks down. "I don't know James. She was a lot more vague than I wanted her to be, I think she likes playing games. And as for Dr. Strange, he's not that kind of Doctor. From what I understand he specalizes in the occult." He's still annoyed that Selene kept it to herself for this long. "I mean we can try to see if Doctor Strange is around, I dunno if he's off saving the world or something."

"Lets go! It beats me waiting around until she tries to make me eat someone's face or something." James says with a little bit of desperation, "You don't think she could zap me like she did with Robyn or Jinx, right? She like tried to eat them or something!" He runs his paws through his hair, "Agghh! I'm gonna freak out!" Just wait until he hears that she's teaching and team leading.

Kenta reaches out and puts a hand on James's arm. "James, listen to me. As of right now she can't control you or even read your thoughts to my knowledge. She just said she can feel when you're in danger, if anything I think it might be strong emotions, but having said that I don't think we should ignore this." He takes a deep breath and looks at James. "You can drive right? You can drive us into the city and I'll get an address."

"So SHE says," James says distrustfully. Strong emotions? Does that mean she knows if or when he'… "YUGH! This is creepy!" And although his driving abilities are rather untested in big cities, he's not about to let stop him considering the alternatives. "Yeah, I can drive us. If you have the address, lets grab a GPS and go. "

Kenta doesn't leave James' side but instead he uses his X-Communicator to get a hold of Scott and get the address. He repeats it outload "177A Bleecker Street, gotcha. I'll fill ya in on the way." Kenta says before looking to James. "Okay, so you need to get anything cause I say we should go now. Thank god my parents are watching Armande today."
