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.

Early dayside today. And Jordan's having size issues already. Eleven feet tall today. So, he's wearing the only thing he has that'll fit him. His training uniform. Green and white. He doesn't know why his size issues are such a problem here, but… he's dealing. Laying on the grass in the middle, he looks up at the clouds in the sky, letting them pass overhead.

Jordan's not the only one having issues with his powers today, Robyn accidentally possed one of the kids in his class today. Now that his first class of the day is over and he has some free times so he's decided to go out side, hopefully away from a few people. He's walking along in a daze and he actually almost trips over the giant teen, it's only that Jordan is so long that Robyn stops before tripping over Jordan. "Oh hey Jordan, you're…wow…" He says a his large size.

"Yeah. Stuck on campus for the moment." Jordan says with a nod, not looking away from his skywatching. He knows who's there. "Sometimes, I just can't force myself to be normal. I wish I could. And every time I get bigger lately, I've gotten bigger than I was before."

Sits down next to Jordan crosslegged and leans back. He's not really sure what to say but he just nods, feeling sympathtic. "Maybe someone here can help you? I had Addison help me a bit with my powers. I don't know, it could be worse I guess?" Robyn says trying to be at least somewhat optimistic.

Shrugging, Jordan rolls to his side, reaching out to pull the other teenager against him. Hey, he can do that if he wants. Unless Robyn moves away anyway. "I dunno. I'll figure it out eventually. Right now, I can't get in any of the doors, so I'm staying outside."

Robyn is easily pulled over and he is a bit tense and awkward as he's pulled against Jordan but he doesn't pull away. When he's pulled over he's moved from a sitting position to a laying position, and he smiles at Jordan. "At least it's a nice day and not raining?" For a kid who wears mostly black and has that 'emo/goth' look to him, he's fairly upbeat. "I'm just trying to keep my mind in my head and not in other peoples."

"This is true. Sorry. I should have asked." Jordan says, with a bit of a wince. "I just needed contact of some kind." Hey, he admits it anyway. That's something he normally wouldn't do. "And I figured you were alright with it. After our last discussion." He says with a bit of a sigh. "Sorry, a little down today. Nothing big." Then he looks down at himself and chuckles.

Robyn can't resist putting his hand up and pressing against Jordan's chest light. He's…squishy? He gives a confused look but doesn't say anything. "Sorry, no, it's okay I'm just.." Shy? He doesn't say it though. "It's okay. If you need it I don't mind it's just..sorry. I've never really…been this close and you're one of the few people here I consider a friend."

Yes. Squishy. He chuckles at the pressure from Robyn's hand on his chest. "Sorry, I get less… cohesive when I'm bigger." He says, leaning a hand down to ruffle Ropbyn's hair. He'd do more, but he knows the kid is uncomfortable. "I know the feeling. I really haven't taken the time to talk to others."

"Sorry, I just wasn't expecting you to be..like that." Robyn does smile and chuckle though and he can't help but relax a bit into the human pillow. He does feel small next to the guy whose five feet taller than him. When his hair is ruffled, Robyn can't help but chuckle. "I've tried I just don't really know what to talk to people about besides the fact that we're all mutants and the one person I was talking to..well we talked about that." And after that night Vlad makes Robyn really uncomfortable. "

"Like what?" Jordan asks, in reference to the 'like that.' HE smiles lightly as Robyn curls in. Hey, he likes being touched, regardless of who it is. That's the important thing to him. "I know. I just don't know what to talk to people about. My old friends? Sure. Them I knew like the back of my hand. Here, I'm just… different."

"Squishy." Robyn admits with a bit of embarassment. "I know, well I've always been different but I had a few friends back home who I could joke around with here, I don't know. I guess I'm afraid of being the 'weird' kid again. Not that I don't like who I am but it's different here. Also everyone seems to be so close already and I've never been good with cliques."

"Ah, yeah. I tend get less firm as I get bigger." Jordan admits, nodding. "But that's not something everyone needs to know." He laughs a little, curling a little tighter around the other person. "I hate being an outcast, and I know I'm not. I know I'm doing it myself, but it feels like I might become one. Yeah, everybody's already in their little groups that they've been with for a while."

"I won't tell anyone you're just a big squishy guy." Robyn says with a smile. He's still wondering if that was Jordan in the Observation Deck a few nights back but he doesn't say anything. "I've almost always been an outcast but I think that's because a lot of time I'm in my own little world. And not everyone things the weird stuff I like is cool." He's even a bit afraid that Jordan will think he's weird if he sees the kind of art he likes and scuplts.

"Weird isn't bad, generally. Just when people make it a point to stand out and be purposefully different that it becomes something." Jordan says with a nod. "This… is actually really comfortable." He says lightly, looking at the smaller guy with a grin. "Sorry."

Robyn shakes his head. "Nope, my mother always taught me to be myself and be true to myself. I don't think anyone should change who they are if it is to fit in or be different." Robyn blushes lightly and hides his head in Jordan's chest. It's the first time he's cuddled with someone that wasn't his parents when he was a kid. He says something but it's kind of muffled.

Jordan nods. "I… tend to be the other path. I fit in because it's who I am. My personality blends well. That and I'm just hot and stuff." He says, raising an arm to flex briefly as he looks down. "I'm sorry, I didn't hear you."

"Huh?" Robyn says turning a bit red. "I was just agreeing, about the comfortable thing." He just shakes his head at Jordan's ego and chuckles. "You know, in my old school I probably wouldn't have gotten along with someone like you." He means a jock. "But you're really cool Jordan."

Jordan grins. "Yeah, you would have. I'm still me. I only don't like people that I don't like. It has nothing to do with popularity, though… all the popular people flocked to me." He chuckles, grinning and waggling his eyebrows.

"Let me guess, it's cause you're just hot and stuff." Robyn says teasing Jordan a bit. Hey he's actually starting to flirt a bit as he moves an arm so it wraps around Jordan as much as it can. "Do I really have to go back to class, I'm really comfortable right here and it's a nice day and…I like…spending time with you, out here."

Jordan grins at the cuddling before he blinks and chuckles. "Robyn? I really don't mind it at all, but do you realize you're grabbing my butt?" He says, shifting a little. He gives a wink. "I enjoy it, but I don't want you all embarassed."

It's not hard to predict that Robyn turns bright red as Jordan says that and he quickly moves his head, first down, then up, in a panic. "I'm really sorry I didn't mean to do that." He says as he's not sure if he wants to keep his hand there or not, he choose not since they are out side and he doesn't really want anyone walking over seeing him do that.

"Alright. Anyway, I need to figure out how I'm going to do class, myself. Unless I just put my head to the window." Jordan laughs softly.

"What if you try concentrating really hard on becoming your normal size? Think Smaller?" Robyn tries to offer. "I'm not one to talk since I tried to posses someone last night and it didn't work…but I don't know. I just feel like I'm the blind trying to lead the blind."

"I like being big." Jordan says with a shrug. "And, even my normal height is tall." He doesn't say anything about shrinking, making sure nobody knows he can.

"I'm just 5' 11", I don't think I'm getting any bigger." Robyn's just one of those taller lanky kids. "You like being big and squishy?" Robyn says as he hugs Jordan a bit tighter and sighs. "I should probably go to class anyway, mutant ethics." Robyn makes a face more because he didn't do his homework.

"Alright. I'll see you later?" Jordan says with a half-grin.

Robyn hugs Jordan a bit tight and smiles looking up at him. "Okay. Maybe I'll find you for dinner." He lets go of Jordan and pushes himself up and pauses for a bit not sure of what to do next. "Umm..see ya later!" He says as he heads to the classrooms pausing to look back at Jordan with a smile before continuing on.
