Rating: PG

Xavier Mansion - Recreation Room

What was once the Parlor has been turned into a Recreation Room for the students. A nice plush carpet meets the light blue walls giving it a homey feel. A pool table at one end, a foos ball table at the other, and entertainment center with video game systems, movies, and of course, cable TV. Big comfy chairs and couches surround a coffee table for comfortable loafing. Long glass windows with a pair of French doors line one side of the room bringing in plenty of light during the day. The main rule in here is to clean up after yourself.

It's afternoon, after school, and Cale is hanging out in the rec room, as is pretty common. He's the only one in here right now, which is /not/ all that common, but he seems to be taking advantage of it, watching some anime on the big TV with the sound turned up. He's curled up on the couch, wearing a pair of cutoff jean shorts and a fit purple MLP t-shirt, hair done up in a couple of braids today.

Bridget comes in being followed by the pink and black skull. She blinks at the wall of sound blasting from the TV. She shakes her head to get use to the sound and smiles. She then flips over the back of the couch far from graceful and lands butt first on the couch, luckly not on top of you." She looks over and smiles, "Hey mind if I join you?"

Cale starts when he realizes that someone is in the room with him - it's about the point that he feels Bridget land on the couch. "Huh? Oh, um, sure, I mean," he stammers, grabbing the remote and turning the sound down to a more reasonable level. You know, one that's not going to be heard down in the sub-basement level… "Um, hi! Bridget, right?"

Bridget smiles and nods, "yah and Cale right?" She looks at the anime and then back at you, "It's great that you like anime too none of my girlfriends would watch it with me." The skulls float over the pink one lands in her lap and nuzzles her belly while the black one goes to the window and looks out.

"Y-yeah, I guess," nods Cale, glancing back and forth between the TV and the girl. "I mean, I guess it's a pretty nerdy thing… then again, lots of people watch it…" he trails off, "Shane likes anime quite a bit. She even dresses up and stuff. If you like it, you oughta meet her sometime. She's pretty cool."

Bridget, "Yah she sounds cool. Maybe the three of us can get together and have a girls night in and watch anime and nerd out." She pets the pink skull on her lap. The purple flame around the skull seem not to burn her.

"Hmm?" Cale peers at Bridget, raising and eyebrow for a moment, "A girls night in?" he rubs the back of his neck, red coloring his cheeks. "But I'm not a, er, um," he stammers some more, "I don't know if Shane is really 'into' that sorta thing…" he glances at the TV, which has the two protagonists having a romantic scene. That just makes things worse! Awkward silence reigns for a moment, "But, it does sound sorta fun…"

Bridget pats the pink skull, "okay go play." The skull seems upset but floats off her lap and over to the black one. Bridget curls up and leans against you and watches the anime, "so what anime is this one? I don't I seen it before."

Cale kind of pauses and freezes as he's curled up against, not really… well, ready for that. So he just sort of sits there, awkwardly, for the moment. He seems mostly terrified of this girl and her crazy skulls and… well, everything! THIS is why he should never leaves his room!

Bridget looks up at you with a questions innocent look on her face. She knows they just met but they are girls so there should be no problem with this, "Is something a matter?"

"Err," Cale murmurs, "Anime! Right. it's um. Gundam. Uh, MS08th Team. It's kinda, I dunno. See this guy is on the one side, and the girl is on the other, she's royalty or something, and they fall in love, and it's… it's basically Romeo and Juliet with giant robots, you know?" he fires off quickly. "Would you mind," he squeaks out, "Not leaning on me? It's weird. No offense but we just met! And I'm - I don't think I'm into girls anyway!"

Bridget listens and nods, "oh I have only seen Gundam Wing before." She sits up and smiles, "sorry I been told I have a problem invading people personal space." She leans on the other side of the couch, "I was not hitting on you. Not that I haded thought about it your cute but I don't go around just hitting on girls." She smiles at you and watches the TV.

"I, er," Cale furrows his eyebrows, "I'm not a girl. I mean," he curls his knees up to his chest, hugging them, "It's complicated. But I don't take it as an insult that you thought I was, either, I just think, you know, that I should be honest with you," he nods. This has pretty much never happened to him before, so…

It's Bridget's turn to blush at this news, "Oh god I'm sorry. It that…..I mean……Your pretty" she bits her bottom lip and looks you over again then smiles, "does not matter your still cute boy or girl." She giggles some and then shrugs, "but if your not into girls guess hitting on you will do nothing but make you uneasy."

Cale smiles a little, "Yeah, I guesso, it's just like…" he runs hand through his hair, "If you want to think of me as a girl, I guess that's okay, too! I don't mind," he blushes heavily, skin involuntarily shifting to the color of the couch. "I think a lot of people kinda do…"

Bridget smiles, "So do you want to be a girl or do you just looking like one? Or is this look just happen?" She keeps looking at you even you blending in with coach, "If you want to I can do your hair and make up." she does not seem that freaked out any more that your a boy.

"I dunno, I'm not, it's not something I really feel comfortable talking about," Cale nods, "If you want to do that though, I guess that's okay… I usually just do my own, I mean, but I guess I'm not really that good at it. I have a friend who kinda helps out with this sorta thing though, their name's Taylor," he nods. "Maybe you've met Tay? Tay looks like a big cat, kinda."

Bridget nods slowly, "I think I seen him about but sometimes it's hard to tell who is who here." She grins at you, "Are you two a couple?" She is fully relax now and seems to be enjoying the talk even if your not. She looks at the anime, "sorry should not ask such things. like I said I been told I have personal space issues and not all phyical."

Cale laughs, "No! It's okay. We're not, though, Tay's just a really good friend," nods the boy. "We just, have a lot in common, and all." Plus, it helps that Cale really likes cats. So having a cat for a best friend - well, that's just fine and dandy in his book. "It's fine, anyway, that's totes okay to ask, yanno?"

Bridget smiles and giggles, "well that's good to know. Maybe we can go boy watching at the mall." She looks over at the skulls and back at you, "as long as your okay being seen in public with those two?"

"Maybe," Cale smiles a little at that… "But, there's already someone I like… I can't say who it is! But," he pauses, "I do like him! Anyway." It is easier to talk about, after Heather pretty much yanked it all out of him a week or two ago. "But the mall is pretty fun. We could definitely go to the mall!"

Bridget grins at you and giggles, "oh so there is a Mr Right then." She leans over and hugs you before leaning back again, "yah the mall would be cool we can hit the clothing stores try on outfits and stuff."

"Yeah, kinda," Cale smirks a little, "Oh, that'd be cool…" he trails off for a moment, thinking about the /last/ couple times he went clothes shopping. Adventure time! He seems to be okay with being hugged though. Since everyone is on the same page.

Bridget smiles and nods, "yah. So I guessing you shop at hot topic like I do?" she eyes your clothing, "I love that store so fun."

"Eh, you know, sometimes, a little of everything! If I see something I like, I get it, if not… well, if not, I don't, really! I dunno," Cale smiles, shrugging a little. "I'm not too terribly awesome at fashion. I usually depend on other people, somewhat. You know. So it doesn't look too awful. When I want to."

Bridget looks you over and smiles, "see I like the way you dress. It's cool." she grins and realize she still wearing her boots and pulls them off and puts them on the floor, "that's better

"You think so?" Cale murmurs, "Well, maybe. Tay helps me pick out things from time to time… the rest of it is just me I guess…" he smiles lopsidedly as the anime eventually draws to a close; or at least that episode, anyway. "Bleh," he looks at the little clock on the entertainment center, squinting at it. "Probably don't have time for another. Have to get homework done and stuff," he sighs, sliding off the couch, "Seeya round!"

Bridge smiles and nods, "yah I could get you some cute outfits but just need to see your style a little more before picking out some stuff for you." She nods slowly, "oh I do that right after class so it's out of the way."
