Xavier Mansion - Observation Deck

Glass windows surround the circular room giving a full view of the school grounds. Two telescopes sit in front of the window for students to looks at the stars. A few comfortable chairs and couches with a few tables are placed up here for students to relax. There's a door off to one of the sides that leads up to the attic above here.

Nicholas has been outside all day in the heat with Orion so now that the sun has gone down, he's had dinner, Nick has decided he wanted to relax up in the observation deck. He has his laptop positioned on the table so he can watch the screen from his lying down position on the couch. It looks like he's been up here for a bit as his laptop has a black screensaver screen and he appears to be curled up on the couch sleeping.

Having just finished an annoying phonecall from his mom Lock's decided to chill up in the observation deck and think for a while. He's dress in grey jeans and a blue lanturn coups t-shirt, spotting the sleeping Nick he tries to use his powers to fly quietly to the other side of the room to avoid waking him up. However about halfway across the room his flight gives out and he falls to the floor.

The fall causes Nick to snap away, and he sits up in surprise. "Wha…where am I?" He says groggily before looking around and remembering that he came up to the Observation Deck. "Oh man, I must of fell asleep….what are you doing on the ground Lock?" He says looking at the fellow student.

Warlock rubs his head, "Errm, looking for spare change?", he gets to his feet, "Sorry i woke you up man". He spots something shiney on the floor and bends down to pick it up, "See?, quarter".

Nicholas shrugs. "No worries, I didn't mean to fall asleep up here anyway. Just, don't sleep well at night." He says rubbing the back of his head sleepily. "And I spent most the day horse back riding so I was a bit tired from that." He yawns before looking at the quarter in his hands. "Really? I thought the school gave us an allowance so we wouldn't have to look around for spare change."

Warlock shrugs, "I don't get the allowance, family supplies what i need, hence the spare chance, i ask for what i need, what i want however i gotta work on", he's not really comfortable talking about his finances so thinks for a subject change, "That danger room session was pretty cool the other night right?"

Nicholas nods in agreement. "Yeah, it wasn't too bad, it was fun. I like Danger Room sessions, it's like gym class but better." He says leaning forward and pulling his laptop to his lap. "Anything physical like that helps keep my mind off of stuff and I just want to get better with powers so I'm willing to work hard to do that."

Warlock nods, "I'd just settle for my powers doing what they're told, i'm always accedentally breaking things or hovering in my sleep but if i try to be strong or fly it doesn't work half the time", he shrugs, "Theres worse powers i could have though, i mean everyone wants to fly when they're a kid".

"Practice, that's all I can tell you." Nicholas says. "It's like training for any sport, you have to keep at it and keep practicing, I've been working on telekinetic shields and let me tell you, if I didn't keep at id I would have never gotten it. It took quite a bit of work for me to get it down."

Warlock shrugs, "I've been trying, i'll get it eventually, hopefully before something really awkward happens", he leans against the wall, "Either wat this tactile telekinisis thing is weird, your power makes way mose sense and actually sounds more usefull".

Nicholas shifts to more of a sitting position on the couch and shrugs with a sigh. "Yeah, I think most powers are weird Lock. It's always greener on the other side isn't it?" He says dryly. "I dunno if it makes more sense, does anyone being able to do what we do make sense?"

Warlock hmms and crosses his legs like he would if he was sitting on the floor but stays in the air, "Well you move things with your mind people have heard of that, my mind does things to me, which is a little worrying but i get your point". "Oh, i was meaning to ask, hows Jill doing?"

Nicholas doesn't look at Warlock with the question but instead looks out the window. "I don't know, I haven't seen her for a while, she just kind of disappeared." He sounds a bit frustrated as he says that. "And people hearing of it doesn't mean squat Warlock, you think that just because someone has heard of a power means it makes it better or more accepted?" He snaps without really meaning to.

Warlock props his elbow on his knee and rests his chin in his palm, "Kinda wish i could do something for her, she wouldn't really talk properly when i last saw her, hard to know how to help". He frowns as Nick returns to grouchy mode, "Well he was fun while he lasted".

"Yeah well so do I but I don't know what happened, I haven't seen her in a long time, okay?" Nicholas says in a tone that indicates he really doesn't want to talk about it. "I couldn't do anything for her and now…I don't know where she is, and I don't know what to do." Then at the last comment, he raises his eyebrows. "Who was fun while he lasted?"

Warlock quite happily drops the subject, he shakes his head, "Oh, no one, just talking to myself, or maybe my shadow, either way it's someone in this area", he indicates his personal space bubble, "Though i should apologies, my gradmother says it's rude to mutter".

Nicholas gives Warlock a 'whatever' look and looks back down at his laptop and starts to click on a few things again. "Just…I thought she was my girlfriend or something, ya know? And then she just disappears. I…it sucks, a lot."

Warlock hmmms, "Well she's dealing with alot, having died and all, maybe she was having trouble with the wanting blood and left so she wouldn't accidentally kill ya, so by leaving she's showing that she cares", yup that is the scenario playing in his head, though oddly Jill is speaking Shakespearian english.

Nicholas shuts his laptop, perhaps with a bit too much force and looks up at Warlock. "Stop trying to think of some dumb excuse, you don't know that. I know she's dealing with a lot but….I didn't think she'd just run out. Who knows what could have happened, maybe something happened and she's completely lost control."

Warlock sighs, "Fine take things out on people trying to help but i'm not gonna sit here and take it, come find me when nice Nick comes back, see ya later", he straightens up and head towards the exit.
