Xavier Mansion - Spuyer Devil Cove

This little cove leads off to Breakstone Lake. Students can go fishing, boating, and swimming in the fresh water. There is a small beach off to the side of the dock where students can also go sunbathing.

After the week he's been having Daisuke needs one thing, and it's an odd site to most that know him. He's standing there on the beach smoking a cigarette while just staring at the school with this faint smile on his face. He takes out his cellphone and starts to text someone with the same faint, but satisfied, smile. He takes one long drag off of his cigarette before putting it out in the sand.

Pallaton isn't far behind, having decided to shun society for a while after the whole being attacked by Eddie and having his beliefs seemingly mocked by Daisuke. There's a rustling in the bushes before Pallaton emerges, patting the leaves from his fur. However, he's carrying some logs (yes, logs, not sticks) that he sets down nearby, before looking to Daisuke. He doesn't say anything, since his arrival wasn't all that stealthy. He'll leave that to Daisuke. In the meantime, Pallaton busies himself with said logs, breaking them like twigs in order to seemingly strengthen his little lean-to. Or perhaps make a fire. Warmth is good.

Daisuke looks at Pallaton for a while and gives him a smug sort of smile before giving him a wave. He gets the look like he's pondering something for a bit before shaking his head and taking a few steps over. "So hiding from the world now Pallaton?"

Pallaton just grunts, breaking the logs with a seemingly renewed vigor as Daisuke approaches. "And what's it to you if I did?" He doesn't sound happy, anyway. Maybe a bit bitter, but not a lot.

Daisuke shrugs and sits down not to far from the area almost as if saying 'I'm staying here for now if you want me to or now'. "Nothing, I was just wondering if you were still crying over you having a hissy fit and your friends worrying about you."

Pallaton breaks the next log with way too much force than is actually needed. "Unlike some people, I have faith in my own abilities. Even if it didn't work, I'm still willing to give my life if it means I save people, just like I said. But, of course, some cowards don't understand that." Crunch. There goes the next log, kicked into the pile of broken logs. "Some people don't understand what it's like to be me, and ostracise me because of it, despite acting like friends. But I'm sure you know all about that, don't you, Daisuke."

Daisuke likes back and rolls his eyes. "Willing to give your life if it means you'll save people. Man you heroes can be quite selfish. What do you want, everyone to say Oh Pallaton it must be awful for you looking like freak? We'll let you cry like a baby because you look different from everyone?"

Crunch. Again, more force than needed, and it seems to be rubbing Pallaton the wrong way. "No. I don't want to have to hide myself away, or hide from the challenges that face me. My ancestors never did, so why should I?" he growls. "All I want is to be allowed to do what I have to do without being patronized by bigots like you!" He barks the latter sentence, getting really angry. More angry than usual, in fact. He's almost snarling, too.

Daisuke just looks put at Pallaton and takes out another cigarette, lighting it. "Fine, if you want to go and commit suicide, I won't try to stop you then. Not like anyone else I care about has killed themselves before. You're just being selfish and immature Pally, that's that." He says almost calmly as he takes another drag from a cigarette.

Pallaton growls. "And you're being ignorant of other people's feelings. Eddie spoke to me yesterday, and he told me something. Something deadly serious. Something I don't think you'll agree with. Do you know what that is?"

"Told you everything huh? And what's that?" Daisuke asks curiously not seeming like he cares either way. He does though sit back up and listen with a smile of amusement.

Pallaton scowls at that smile. "He confided in me something he hasn't told anyone else yet, but the way you're taking this, I'm not sure if you're worthy to know." Be turns back to the logs, breaking another in two in an attempt to let off steam. "He has a plan."

"I know he does, he was talking to me about some of his plan yesterday." Daisuke says sounding bored. "So if you're trying to make me jealous, I don't think it's gonna happen Pal. I have a few plans on my own, should be interesting to watch them play out." He says with a chuckle.

Crunch. Again, a lot more force than necessary, followed by kicking the log-parts in frustration, scattering them over the whole area. "So he lied. He doesn't trust me, either." he says to himself, before stomping off into the woods. "I've had it with this school and their false smiles. At least you had the decency to say it to my face." He's not even waiting, storming off, muttering in another language under his breath.

Daisuke looks at Pallaton and shakes his head as he stands up. "Damn, he almost had me worried there." He says before brushing off and walking back to the school. He still has a few thing to check over to get things prepared.
