Xavier Mansion - Lobby

A large chandelier causes light to shine over the polished surfaces of the Lobby creating a bright welcome. A few wooden benches blend in with the wooden walls. A large portrait of Professor Xavier is displayed on the wall. On each wall is a doorway that leads to a different part of the school.

After pulling up to the school, Chris got a call and ran off to take care of it. This left Eddie to give James the tour. Coming into the lobby, the scarred teen holds the door open for the new guy. "We'll start on the ground floor. Maybe some others will be around for you to meet."

Shortly after Eddie and James walk into the lobby, Daisuke walks in after them. He just got back from his volunteer job at the theatre and is ready to take a long shower and get some rest. He looks a bit stressed but seeing Eddie there, the Japanese teen smiles. "Eddie." He says as he walks over to give his best friend a hug, and almost lean on him for a moment.

James nods as he walks in and looks around slowly. One thing he could already say was that he was defintely much more comfortable here then in the city.

Eddie starts to say something but jumps when Dai appears. "Dai!" he grins, hugging his friend. "Oh yeah. James, this is Dai. My best friend and another student here. This is James. He's gonna be a new student here."

Daisuke looks at James and gives him a friendly but shy smile, offering a hand. "Hi, I'm Daisuke or just Dai, like most people call me. Welcome to Xavier's." He says as he looks at Eddie. "Oh, Eddie, there's something I gotta tell you when you're not busy."

James nods and similes as he says "Hello.", his posture was much more relaxed then it had been in the city.

Eddie blinks a few times. "Sure thing, Dai. Nothing wrong?" he asks. "Well, James, this is the main lobby of the building. And over here," he gestures to the portrait. "That's Professor Xavier."

Daisuke shakes his head. "I wouldn't say wrong, but odd I guess. I decided to confront Mr. St. Thomas about his dog attacking you." Daisuke admits and it wasn't easy for him and he was quiet scared when doing it. "Oh, sorry to interrupt your tour James.

James shrugs "It's alright. There's absloutly no reason I can't wait a little while before continuing."

Eddie tenses a bit. "Everything's okay?" he asks, immediately worried about his friend. He jumps when James speaks then looks a little guilty on top of being worried.

"He denied it was an attack but he seemed pretty mad about me asking about it. I don't know, I can't tell if something was off or not." Daisuke admits. "I wary but I'm not going to stop working there, yet, but I'm going to try to be on my guard." Daisuke says and that's all he has to say before shrugging. "So, what has Eddie shown you so far here James?"

James says, "Not much really. Still it's much easier for me to relax here then in the city, much less data overload for lack of a better term."

Eddie reaches over to hug Daisuke again. "If something happens…call me please?" he asks "I'll help you out," he's worried about his friend. Taking a deep breath, the scarred mutant nods. "How 'bout we get a snack then!"

"Oh that sounds great, I'm hungry." And as Eddie would know, for a skinny guy, Daisuke's actually got quite the appetite. "I just got back from work so some food and then a shower would be perfect. So what's your gift James?" Daisuke asks curiously trying to make conversation.

James nods "I have eaten in a while either." He then holds up two fingers "I can track objects moving. The heavier they are the further away I an track them, and I can alter gravity around me though I've only done that once to slow a fall."

Xavier Mansion - Kitchen

This kitchen was designed to feed large numbers of people, and looks it with its bright white walls and stainless steel appliances. The stove, refrigerator, and dishwasher are all larger than normal. There is an island with stools around it for people to sit and eat around along with a table for twelve by the windows in back. Along the wall is a hole in the wall looking into the dining room so food can be passed back and fourth. Anything you want to cook or eat in the kitchen you will find the food and supplies to do so.

The walk to the kitchen isn't a long one and a few students are passed by, offering friendly greetings to Eddie and Dai and curious looks at James. When they get to the Kitchen, Eddie grins and gestures around. "Here we are! Have a seat and I'll whip up something Dad taught me how to make!"

"Sounds great Eddie, man if it wasn't so late I'd say lets go to McDonalds and just get a ton of burgers." But then Daisuke's power keeps him from getting fat so he can do that. "That's neat, I have sonics, I can detect weaknesses and I have some sort of super powered metabolism."

James nods relieved that he wasn't going to have to face the horror of his own cooking. "That's good, comparisons between the quality of my cooking and the food at most hospitals have been exaggerated but not by much."

Eddie chuckles a little. "I'm not all that good either but as long as I copy exactly what Dad did, things will be fine," he says, getting out the materials for grilled cheese sandwiches. He frowns when there's no soup but lets it pass. "Oh yeah…and I'm a power booster. Not as cool at what you guys do…"

Daisuke frowns at Eddie. "Oh shush, you've kicked ass fighting crime how many times? And don't worry James, I might have been top of my class but I can't cook more than three of four things. Most of the Japanese but get me to try to make cookies and they were so gross when I tried." Daisuke says with a smile.

James says, "All we can do is do the best we can with the gifts we have and hope for the best. That's all anyone can ever do.""

Eddie makes a little face. "I only did so well cause I have the Goblin Gauntlets and had you there to make up for me being so weak," he says to Dai as he finishes buttering up the bread and moves to turn on the stove.

"Yeah but you figured out how to use them, you found them, you went and retrived them so just you shush." Daisuke says teasing Eddie and this is how the two of them tend to interact. One trying to convince the other that they're worth more than they believe. "Yup James, that's why Eddie and I train pretty hard, we're gonna be X-Men one day."

James nods "I hope I will to someday, once I learn how to filter the data from my sensory ability and exactly what I can do with my gravity manipulation ability."

Eddie blushes furiously, focusing on the food preparation. The scarred teen glances over his shoulder. "You…wanna be one of the X-men too, James?"

"I'm sure you will James, they're really good at teaching us control over our powers." Daisuke says going to the fridge and pulling out a can of coke. "I've been learning how to do more than just scream. Either of you want a soda?"

James nods to Daisuke and says "Sure." Then turns to Eddie "I have a gift that I'm sure I can use to help people and being one of the X-Men will let me do that. Besides my sensory ability makes be well suited to work in a group."

Eddie smiles and goes quiet. A few moments later and he presents some grilled cheese sandwiches to the other teens, two for Dai, all cut in half. "Sure, Dai. Thanks," he says, taking a seat with his own sandwich. "I'm gonna be a hero one day. No matter what it takes."

Daisuke gets a coke for James and Eddie before sitting down and taking a bite of his grilled cheese and smiles. "Thanks Eddie, it's great. And you and me, we're gonna be heroes together. You think I'm gonna let you go out there alone, I'm gonna be right by your side." Daisuke says more meaning it in friendship terms than over protective ones as he stars to inhale his sandwiches.

James for some reason suffers a flashback to the moral of the third 3 Ninjas movie but nods before taking a bite of his sandwich. "I would like to be a hero as well I just hope I can save as many people as possible along the way."

Eddie smiles, reaching over to playfully fake-jab Dai in the arm. "You know I wouldn't have it any other way, Dai," he says. He starts to eat and then blinks at James. Swallowing, Eddie chuckles a little. "Well, heroes are supposed to save people, silly."

Daisuke chuckles at Eddie as he finishes eating, he ate them pretty fast. "Well I have to get going, I'm gonna go take a shower and then go to bed. Thanks for the grilled cheese and nice meeting you James!" Daisuke says as he puts his plate in the sink, gives Eddie a hug, and heads out.

James nods to Eddie as he swallows another bite. "I know that but even heroes can't save everyone, no matter how hard they try."

Eddie shakes his head and returns Dai's hug. "See ya later, Dai," he calls. He then looks to James and frowns. "Dude. Don't worry so much…man, you're reminding me of me when I got here…" he trails off. "So, c'mon. Enjoy the food then we can get you set up with Mr. Summers and get a room and all that."

James nods then opens the can of soda and takes a sip of it before returning to eating the sandwich.
