Abby Comes Home
Post by Marisol Morales on Jul 13, 2007, 11:21pm

It's weird. Really.

Walking is such a simple thing. I mean, you get up, you move, you go somewhere, you do something, and you don't even really think about everything that went into it. One foot in front of the other. Simple.

One day, I hope that it'll be so simple with me and my wheelchair. But I don't see that day coming anytime soon.

It's been about a week since the accident, and the doctors did a really good job of getting me some mobility again - Nick and Paige helped the most, though; staying with me, keeping me company, making me want to get back to the real world so I could get them both out of that depressing room - I think I feel a lot better than most people would like this.

So here I am, back at the school, rolling out of the van the hospital provided for me. (with Paige and Nick along, probably, but I didn't want to make assumptions) A deep sigh.

[You don't have to reply or anything, I just wanted to establish she's back.]

«Well, I'll post»

Jake was walking past a window when he saw the van drive up and immediately made his way out to the door with a smile on his face

"Abby?"

«He's really that great, Sam? Gosh, I never knew you had feelings for him.»

Post by Marisol Morales on Jul 14, 2007, 12:26am

"Hey, Jake!" I wheel over to him, swerving a bit on the way - still haven't got the dynamics down pat.

"You're lookin good."

That damn chair…..not fair

He heads down the steps to meet her half way

"How are you feeling?"


Re: Abby Comes Home
Post by Marisol Morales on Jul 14, 2007, 12:33am

"Like she's in a goddamn wheelchair, genius. What kind of stupid question is that?"

I look behind Jake as…well, I don't know who that is. Looks hispanic. Dark clothes. He scoffs, shakes his head and walks on inside, rolling his eyes the entire time. "I'm fine, but…uh…who?"


Re: Abby Comes Home
Post by Jake "Flare" Lange on Jul 14, 2007, 12:35am

Who the fuck?

Jake sets a hand down on Abby's shoulder as he looks at the guy, taking his sunglasses off and raising an eyebrow

"Who the hell are you and what's your problem?"

"Shut it blender-face." I say, stepping outside, having heard Army being a dick.

"Abby doesn't need your crap right now, right Abbs?"


Re: Abby Comes Home
Post by Marisol Morales on Jul 14, 2007, 12:44am

"Army. We met the other day, right before your girlfriend turned my mouth into a blood slushie." He stops before going in all the way. "And I don't have a problem, just making an observation. Asking dumb questions like that just makes you look condescending - my opinion, anyway. He starts to head in all the way.


Re: Abby Comes Home
Post by Jake "Flare" Lange on Jul 14, 2007, 12:46am

"Ah, didn't recognize you without Baby mutilating you. You look better that way."

Prick

He turns back to Abby

"For the record, you know I wasn't trying to condescending, right?"


Re: Abby Comes Home
Post by Marisol Morales on Jul 14, 2007, 12:48am

"No, no, it's okay!" She laughs a bit, weakly. "Yeah, it's fine, really. Hey, Baby!"


Re: Abby Comes Home
Post by Orchestra the Mighty on Jul 14, 2007, 12:52am

"Hey…Abby…"

I know, I know, I suck…but I feel utterly uncomfortable talking to her. Now, at least. I just can't look at her and not feel pity, and shame, and sadness.

"…we've missed you around here, girl, you don't even know. You've totally gotta come and meet Madrox, he's a total hottie."


Re: Abby Comes Home
Post by Marisol Morales on Jul 14, 2007, 12:54am

"Madrox? The Multiple Man?" I blink a few times. "Why is he around?"


Re: Abby Comes Home
Post by Jake "Flare" Lange on Jul 14, 2007, 12:56am

I'm such a fucking insensitive prick

"S-sorry….it's just great to have you back."

He gives her a shining grin, as well as he can at least

"Babe! I'm standing right here!"

Don't get jealous

"He's one of the new advisors around here, him and Havok."

"Oh don't be like that Jake, even if they were my age, there's at least one Madri that wouldn't touch me…*ahem*…yeah, this place is a real school now Abbs, especially without Tank around."


Re: Abby Comes Home
Post by Marisol Morales on Jul 14, 2007, 1:02am

"Without Tank?" I kind of liked him…minus all the killing he did. He seemed to want to protect me a lot. "What happened to him?"


Re: Abby Comes Home
Post by Orchestra the Mighty on Jul 14, 2007, 1:04am

"Jail, murder."


Re: Abby Comes Home
Post by Jake "Flare" Lange on Jul 14, 2007, 1:05am

Well, that dupe sure did seem a bit….chick like

"He sorta threw a car at the guy who shot you."

«It was a car, right?»


Re: Abby Comes Home
Post by Marisol Morales on Jul 14, 2007, 1:07am

"Oh…I'm sorry to hear that. But, I'm glad things are running now, and I'm glad everyone's all right."


Re: Abby Comes Home
Post by Orchestra the Mighty on Jul 14, 2007, 1:19am

"Yeah…everything around here is dandy…"


Re: Abby Comes Home
Post by Marisol Morales on Jul 14, 2007, 1:21am

"So…um, that reminds me. Baby, you know, a few weeks back with you and Jake and all that trouble? I'm sorry I kind of got that started. I never got to apologize to you before, but I'm sorry."

Quote:(with Paige and Nick along, probably, but I didn't want to make assumptions)

«Sounds right.»

Say whatever you want to say about Tank but my only complaint about his reaction to Abby being blasted is that he didn't spend a longer amount of time doing it.

Also, finding Army here is… surprising. Didn't think he'd show until after… everything. Also, I'm sort of wondering if he knew where the place was before hand or if he stalked me here after the deal over at Carmen's.

"Whoa. The West school is finally becoming a school. Hot dog. And it only took a couple months."


Re: Abby Comes Home
Post by Jake "Flare" Lange on Jul 14, 2007, 1:42am

"Don't stress it Ab, everything's cool."

He gives Baby a wink before putting his sunglasses back on

"Yup. Everything's completely fine…'cept we have curfews now. That's gonna suck for everyone."

Post by Nick Nephrahim on Jul 14, 2007, 1:42pm

"I think a lot of people here could us more sleep. Lots of crankiness."

I catch up to Abby, having no idea how I lost her. Not like she's blazing fast.

Stop thinking about the wheelchair damnit. It's plain I'm still upset about everything that went down. There's not a hint of my easygoing grin on me.


Re: Abby Comes Home
Post by Baby "Gravita" Tigo on Jul 14, 2007, 1:43pm

"We're going to have classes soon Nick, there won't be anything but crankiness."


Re: Abby Comes Home
Post by Nick Nephrahim on Jul 14, 2007, 1:46pm

"You can get even more sleep."


Re: Abby Comes Home
Post by Baby "Gravita" Tigo on Jul 14, 2007, 1:47pm

"Pffft, some of us want to go to college."


Re: Abby Comes Home
Post by Marisol Morales on Jul 14, 2007, 1:48pm

"Sleep would be good." I look over my shoulder, eying Nick above me. "Are you…is everything all right?"


Re: Abby Comes Home
Post by Nick Nephrahim on Jul 14, 2007, 1:51pm

"Whatever."

Not in the mood to argue such a silly point. I look down at Abby, giving a tired smile.

"I'm fine, I'm fine. Just… tired. I haven't gotten much sleep either."


Re: Abby Comes Home
Post by Jake "Flare" Lange on Jul 14, 2007, 2:02pm

"You guys have fun with classes, I'm testing out."

Last thing I need is to go back to sitting in a room for hours on end where I can't get a charge


Re: Abby Comes Home
Post by Baby "Gravita" Tigo on Jul 14, 2007, 2:09pm

"…really?"


Re: Abby Comes Home
Post by Jake "Flare" Lange on Jul 14, 2007, 2:24pm

"Hm?"

Oh crap, I didn't mention it to her

"Yeah, I'll still be here, I just wont be going to non-powers classes if this works."


Re: Abby Comes Home
Post by Baby "Gravita" Tigo on Jul 14, 2007, 2:29pm

"Oh…okay…"


Re: Abby Comes Home
Post by Jake "Flare" Lange on Jul 14, 2007, 2:36pm

"…..I'll do your homework if you want."

Insert foot into mouth


Re: Abby Comes Home
Post by Baby "Gravita" Tigo on Jul 14, 2007, 2:38pm

I smile at and Jake look at Abby and Nick. There's so much tension there now…


Re: Abby Comes Home
Post by Nick Nephrahim on Jul 14, 2007, 4:31pm

"Congrats."

I reply, very subduded.


Re: Abby Comes Home
Post by Marisol Morales on Jul 14, 2007, 4:52pm

"Hey, Nick…" I hold his hand, wheeling him along with me - he's got to be completely drained after the last week, I can only imagine. "Why don't we go to your room and lay back for a little while, huh? I'll give you a massage, if you want."


Re: Abby Comes Home
Post by Nick Nephrahim on Jul 14, 2007, 5:01pm

"Not now Abby."

I let go of her hand.

"Not… I just… Some time to think. Is that alright?"


Re: Abby Comes Home
Post by Marisol Morales on Jul 14, 2007, 5:09pm

"Oh…okay." I back off a little, confused - did I do something wrong? "Yes, that's alright."


Re: Abby Comes Home
Post by Nick Nephrahim on Jul 14, 2007, 6:16pm

"Okay. I'll… See you around, Abby."

I wander off in the direction of my room.


Re: Abby Comes Home
Post by Baby "Gravita" Tigo on Jul 14, 2007, 9:37pm

"Someone's not taking this well…"


Re: Abby Comes Home
Post by Jake "Flare" Lange on Jul 14, 2007, 9:39pm

"Not at all."
