X-Factor Tower/Ship

Alex talks about the previous day.

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.


Arriving at the top floor, the elevator doors will open to allow the full 360 parabolic view of the surrounding city and sky - all enclosed in a majestic expanse of transparent metal created by Ship. Taking steps forward, Alex will announce as he points to the pool, "So yesterday I was swimming in that."

Getting off the Elevator and looking where Alex points, Kurt grins a little, "That's it, that's the story, you went swimming, or are you trying to invite me to swim with you?" A chuckle, "If that's the case, am I to take it there's been no advances with Dani?"

"I'm getting there." Alex notes as he adds while walking toward the pool and looking out the vast windows to the city beyond, "So low and behold, guess who shows up and happens to fall into the pool."

Grinning a little, "Just happens to fall in," ponders Kurt. "Is there more to this, or am I ruining your oration of this tale tell fruend?"

"So after, she tells me that.." he pauses trying to recall the exact words, "/When you figure out what that will be you know where to find me./". He then tries to translate, fails, "What the heck does that mean?"

Squirming his lips a little, Kurt says, "That's out of context, she falls in the pool, then tellls you to figure something out and come and find her?" Looking more squarely at Alex, "What am I missing."

"The middle. Which I'm cleaverly avoiding." Alex states. "But I sort of think I may know... my statement prior to that implied action over words. Maybe she wants to see /action/. But only after I decide what the action is. Man, I sound like a complete buffoon. But I'm totally not a playa and have no clue how to read girls that don't just gush over me."

Kurt starts to chuckle, stops himself, then grins widely. "Nein, you are not a playa. You let her walk away again after she gave you that line? You're probably close to playing kissy face, you imply you prefer actions over words, she says you know where to find her when you decide what action that was .... and you didn't follow her back to her room?"

"Yeah, hence the reason I'm talking to you." Alex notes and continues, "Also... is that what I want?"

"Ach, ja ... delimna," ponders Kurt in that moment. "You cannot be a man of action if you yourself do not know what action you wish to take fruend." So says Yoda, in the form of blue elf. "I'd avoid more kissy face with Dani until you're sure, otherwise you'll both end up hurt. If you are interested in playing it to see where it goes over time, go to her room, show her your actions, use no words. If you're not sure, I'd avoid that - unsure now is as bad as going in knowing you only want to some play when she might want something more serious."

"Yeah, that's exactly it. I mean we're teammates and how do I know if I'm in it for the play or the serious. It's the same setup with you and Kitteh. You still walking the fence on that one?" Alex summarizes and then queries as he takes a seat.

Shaking his head, Kurt says, "No, I told her I would like to take it serious, pranks and jokes aside. I told her I want to speak with Piotr so there are no unexpected hard feelings, as well as letting Richenda know the same. Its playing that could be serious, but we're treating it with that potential out of respect for our friends and past relations."

"So you sat down and had the /talk/? See, that's exactly what I'd like to do... but my dumb ass had to say shit about being all actiony." He settles down into one of the cushy lounge chairs and puts his feet up. "Seriously, dumb ass."

Laughing lightly, Kurt shakes his head, "Fruend, I think Dani is indicated she has interest and is willing to see where things go, you just need to make sure you have the interest in pursuing her. She's got a strong will, maybe she just wants to play for now."

"Such a dumbass." Alex comments about himself again and then looks out the window. He'll add some seconds later, "Not to sound too much like a song, I'll let the wind decide."

Shaking his head, Kurt offers, "Nein, I think you're really unsure of what you really want. I think you're worried you'll go to bed with Dani once and one of you two won't like it and that'll strain things. Its for you to decide if you want to pursue that possibility - but you're both adults who can willfully accept the situation if it wont' work out and moving on professionally and as friends."

There's a quiet and understanding 'yeah' that is accompanied with a nod. He leaves it alone to ponder and needs to quit over-thinking things.
