Havok tells Mirage about his meeting with Emma

Social or Plot:


==[ Penthouse Level - X-Factor Tower/Ship ]==

The Penthouse level is three floors (45 feet high) subdivided into three distinct areas; the pool area, the gathering hall, and the lounge.

The floor itself is wide open and allowing flow between those areas without walls or major obstructions. Additionally, all four sides, including the roof, is made of polarizing transparent metal. This allows for sunlight to stream in from all directions, visualization into, out of, or one way, and of course total polarization preventing light completely.

The Pool Area - The swimming pool is a marvel of alien technology. It occupies all 45 feet including has roof access. As a standard pool, it is sunken into the main floor of the penthouse, but then has static and flowing water areas which allow for movement from the lower pool to the rooftop pool via swimming or back down via waterfall/slide. This is made possible by gravitational adjustments by Ship allowing the water to stand vertically, diagonally and horizontally. This means that if someone were to wish to swim from the penthouse floor to the rooftop, it would be possible. The pool area also offers a 'outdoor kitchen' area where one can prepare full meals.

The Gathering Hall - This area is malleable to serve whatever purpose deemed necessary. Presently it presents as a dance floor with stage. However, it can take the shape of a great dining hall, a basketball court, volleyball court, tennis court, and so on.

The Lounge Area - This area is devoted to the relaxation part of the top floor. Where those can sit back, relax and watch a very large projection screen. The area is near to the pool. Walls can be constructed to block out light, noise, distractions and so on.


Entering the 'room', Alex states, "Hey, so you totally need to check me out mentally. We just had a visitor and I'm pretty sure she had plenty of time to put the brain whammy on me and I could be a puppet like Kurt was."

Dani's brow furrows in apparent confusion at the statement, "Well first things first, that's not how my ability works." she moves further into the room toward the sofa where she intends to sit "And two, what the heck are you talking about?

"Emma Frost just came by." he says in a slightly shocked tone as he takes a seat on the other end of the sofa.

She never sits, once the name is mentioned she straightens up, looking around as if wholly expecting the woman to saunter through the door "And you let her in?" Dani's voice rises on the question "You spoke to her?" she stares in disbelief for a moment "What did she want?

There are a few shrugs, a befuddled look on his face and finally an answer he can give, "Apparently for us to all hold hands and sing 'Kum bay ya'." He lets that settle a moment then adds, "Seriously, for her Hellfire Club and our X-Club to be friends."

Dropping onto the sofa, Dani leans back covering her face with her hands as she processes this big peice of news. After a long moment of silence she looks over at him "Well at least your own confusion pretty much means that she didn't try to mentally coerce you...maybe."

"Hope so. But then again. She left me feeling sorry for her because of the kids she lost last year to the Right. I mean, it's a tragedy." Alex states with some confusion, and suspects everything.

"Of course she did, she's manipulative as hell, even without her powers." A frown comes to Dani's face "In as few words as possible, what happened?" she is asking about the tragedy, but that may not be totally clear.

"Oh, yeah you were in Asgard. Ok, last year about this time, the Right and their Smile Face goons attacked the Massachusetts Academy and wiped out the Hellions. Emma was devistated. She came to the school, Xavier let her hang out until Selene came into the picture. Seems that Selene manipulated Emma to redo the school and start the buffet table of students."

Dani nods at the succint retelling, "Glad I missed that." "I can see how Xavier would be kind enough to let Emma stay at the school under those circumstances. But what has changed at the Hellfire Club that has Emma running back? I find it hard to beleive that Selene would just let Emma leave.

"Selene's out of the picture, from what I heard. She ditched the school and there's like 2 students hanging out over there." Alex states, trying to recollect.

"Ultimately this is a decision for Jean and Scott. They are in charge of the school and you and I have little to say in the matter." she gives a slight shrug "I assume you sent Scott the information." if she finds it weird that Emma didn't go to Scott first she doesn't say.

"Yeah. It's probably on his terminal right now. But Emma said that she came to me because Scott couldn't be reached. I mean heck, I don't blame her. I am the more attractive brother."

"He's had his hands full since school started and we started the Avenger's Academy thing." Dani laughs then at the attractive comment "I will neither confirm nor deny that remark.

"Yeah, well I'd much rather her mind zot him than me." then Alex drops that topic and shifts the subject with a question, "Hey, so you wanna go back to your room and make out?"

Dani tilts her head taking a second to determine if that is a serious suggestion or just playful banter, "That's a long trip for making out." she still lives at the Mansion so technically that is where her room is. "Besides, we should save something for the second date." it appears she split the difference between the two.

"Sounds like a plan." Alex says as he stands up. It's pretty apparent that he's living in the Tower now. He's not been back on the X-Property in a month - and he's content with it. "Let's go out tonight. I'll pick you up in the hangar, say 8?"

Glancing at the watch/holoemitter she has taken to wearing since her last assignment "8 it is. See you then." she tells him with a smile before signalling Ship that she is ready to slide/teleport, whichever, back to the Mansion.
