Mirage's Office

Ruth comes to see how Dani is handling things

Social or Plot:


==[ Mirage's Office - Xavier Mansion ]==

This is a generous sized office. The lower half of the walls are a deep mahogany wainscoting with the upper half decorated with a buttery colored textured wallpaper. Covering the floor is a plush carpet that matches the wallpaper.

Tasteful Native American paintings hang in a cluster on the right wall and on the wall to the left is a large fish tank which sits on a wooden stand.

In front of the office visitor is a couple of wingback chairs in rich earth tones that face a wooden desk on which sits a computer monitor and other desk things. Behind the desk is a leather chair and a hutch topped credenza decorated with plants, personal photos and books.


It's mid-afternoon on a school day and even though things are pretty status quo at the school, things haven't been so with Dani and with last week ending with the supposed death of the X-Factor leader, will the weekend has been a rough one. Work much go on though and she has schedules for next year to get in order and a new team to put together. It's enough work to keep her from dwelling on her circumstances too much, at least during the day time. She is sitting behind her desk, resting her head on her propped up hand and staring at her computer monitor going through a list of possible students to recruit into the new team and goes about sending e-mails to teachers as to wanting to see the those particular students and to send to to her officer whenever is convienent for them.

Blindfold came tapping het way down the hall and lightly knocked at the door. Tilting het head as she waited not wanting to barge in, that was RUDE.

Lifting her head from her hand Dani looks at the door in puzzlement, most of the students are supposed to be either in class or at lunch and she isn't expecting and faculty to swing by, "Come in." she calls out, pushing the paperwork in the center of her desk aside.

Blindfold walls in and closes the door behind her "Is everything alright miss Moonstar, you seem a bit troubled if you don't m mind my asking please?"

There is a sigh of releif that it is Ruth at the door and not some trouble maker sent to her for punishment, "It will be Ruth, eventually." she is troubled, how could she not be. She leans back in her chair, pushing her escaped bangs from her face, "I don't mind you asking." though it may not be something she would discuss with a student, even a student who probably knows all about it, even more than Dani herself.

Blindfold smiles softly as she walked around the desk to offer a hug "It will, you'll see...I'm sorry it sucks right now though, yes my apologies"

Patting Ruth lightly on the back as she is hugged Dani takes in a staggered breath, fighting back the tendency to break down again. The blind girl would probably know that Dani is taking this hard. Being a valkyrie she is supposed to know when people are going to die and she got no warning on this one. It just hit her out of left field. Pulling away from the girl she starts to gesture for Ruth to take a seat on the couch, but instead gives the girl a gentle prod in the proper direction "Have a seat Ruth and tell me what you came to see me about, or was it just to see how I was doing?

Blindfold gives her a squeeze before taking the hint and moving to find a seat on the couch "This is how most everyone finds death miss Morningstar" but the question is asked of her and she grins shyly "You will want to see me about something, miss moonstar, please thank you" getting her times mixed up again

Dani cants her head to the side looking perplexed a moment as she takes a seat on the other end of the couch, "Oh yes." she says as she figures out what she could want to see Ruth about. Glad to have the subject of her grief behind them "Jean has asked if I would be willing to start up the New Mutants again. I was in the process of sending out e-mails to have the potential recruits sent to my office so I could see who was interested and who could care less about joining.

Blindfold nods as she folds up het cane in her lap "Ahh my apologies then, I'm sorry for coming to you early. Miss Grey had asked for volunteers for the new mutants a while back, please thank you"

Dani waves away the apology, not that Ruth can see the motion, "Saves me the time. So you are volunteering to join the team?" she gets up from the couch and graps a few papers off her desk "It's a bit sparse right now. Just Chenda so far. We are still getting the preliminary plans for it worked out.

Blindfold nods with a bright smile "yes of course I would love to join, maybe together we can help Mike with his trouble"

"I'm sorry, who?" Dani asks, her expression mirroring the question in her tone. She has no clue who this Mike person "Who's Mike and what kind of trouble is he in?

Blindfold smiles "he's a friend of Scott's, did a couple concerts with sombre tyranasaur aka rex gregson. A cult seems to be out for his father but is targeting him to get to his father, very smart sneaky and organized yes thank you. I've been trying to help Mike with it, morbius is investigating it as well but he can't reach his dream if he can't deal with this problem because he doesn't want to endanger anyone"

"Well that is certainly something we can look into." Dani assumes Ruth means the Scott here and not some random Scott she hasn't met yet "Especially if he is a friend of Scott." there is a glance sent to her watch and then she puts some papers into the girl's hands "This is your requistion form for a uniform. Take it to uniform modification and they will suit you up. Now I think you have a class to get to and a certain teleporter to escort around." meaning she hasn't forgotten that Ruth is supposed to be showing Clarice around the school.

Blindfold takes the papers with a warm smile "Yes I do indeed thank you Miss Moonstar, I will go meet clarice at her classroom and when she is settled I will go to mine, thank you again yes" unfolding het cane to stand up, giving the valkyrie another hug.

Getting up as well Dani takes another hug. She tries to remember if there was this much hugging when she was a student here, she doesn't think there was, but isn't going to complain about it unless it gets carried away. Once Ruth is on her way out the door she will drop into her chair and once more try to distract herself with work.
