Wolves in Wolves' Clothing (Post-Reg Fallout)
Post by Sadie "Suicide Queen" Hannoura on Sept 12, 2007, 11:00pm

A medically placated Sadie sits in the plaza, feeling high and happy, and yet deeply sick that she registered. She sits at a picnic table in the shade, stabbing gloomily at her General Tso's Chicken with her chopsticks.

The silence is eerie compared to the hullabaloo in the Lounge, and she almost wishes someone would break it.

"Hey."

I call down to Sadie from the tree that's been giving her shade for the past few minutes - actually, I've been up here a while, but I can see she's seriously bummed about something, and I have a bad track record when it comes to talking to women who are bummed.

But, after seeing her so down, I decide to risk. "What's bugging you?"

Sadie jumps and clutches at her chest.

"Gah! Holy cats, dude, don't do that."

She braces herself on the table, then recovers. "I, ah, just freaked out a bit ago in the lounge. And all the government spooks here don't help."

"Yeah, sorry for the freak out, bad habit…But I kind of heard about that." I plop down on the table across from her. "The registration thing, I mean. And, you know, you blowing your brains out, which is kind of…eh…"

She looks at the ground and picks at her cuticles.

"…yeah. I just…I don't like how cut and dry they make it. I mean, I'm all about control and all, considering…I don't know what to feel, anymore."

She looks up, and wipes at her eye with her sleeve. "What about you, what did you do?"

"I…just didn't go." I shrug, surprised it comes out so simple. "I mean, I guess it'll be a problem when they start putting their foot down about getting registered in thirty days, but for now I'm trying to take my mind of it. I don't know. It's like I kind of wish it'll just go away if I ignore it."

"I kind of wish I could undo it. I don't…I don't know. Can't hurt. Can it? What if all the anti-regs are right?"

She dabs her eggroll into some duck sauce, then just stares at it.

"…I made a scene, didn't I?"

"Well, yeah. I mean, I get you were stressed, but damn. And in front of everybody, too. No offense, but I got to say, I worry about you when you say you're past the whole suicide thing, then you go and do something like that on a whim.

I sigh, sitting back in the chair, letting silence hold for a moment - really shouldn't lecture like that. "Sorry."

"But that's the joke, isn't it? I can't. That's my power. So." She raises her index finger to her mouth. "Blam. One shot to the head. You ask me, it couldn't have happened to a nicer girl," Sadie says, forcing a smile.

"Besides, now I'm bulletproof for the next few days. I'm sure that will help when this all blows up in our faces."

"Still." I shift in my seat, fighting off that uncomfortable feeling. "Just don't make a habit out of that sort of thing, okay? For me. I've seen what happens when a bullet to the brain doesn't kill you, and trust me, you don't want that."


Re: Wolves in Wolves' Clothing (Post-Reg Fallout)
Post by Sadie "Suicide Queen" Hannoura on Sept 13, 2007, 12:07am

"Yeah. I was just…adrenaline. I'll try not to make a habit out of it. Paige is always saying find some backbone, I guess I overshot it. At least now maybe half the kids will stop treating me like a nerd."

She smiles her crooked grin, but her eyes still show her anxiety.

"I don't know, I kind of like you all nerdy. I mean, if that's not the song you want to sing, sure, but, well, you're unique. Not just powers, but you're whole, you know…demeanor, I guess." I scratch the back of my head. "Gah, rambling. But look, bottom line, don't worry about all this registration shit. Worse comes to worse, we'll handle it like we always handle things - beat the crap out of whatever comes our way until it fixes."

"Do you know what would make me feel better?" she says, raising her voice, and dabbing at her eyes again.

"I'm really…alone and lost, and I can't…mope forever."

She scoots closer and leans close to Army. "Do you think…could you maybe help me with the lonely thing?"

I'm nervous. Really, seriously, nervous. Not sure if my face is rally showing it with the pigment thing, but, no question - nervous.

But I don't move away. Maybe its curiosity. Maybe its just my guy genes reading too much into things. Whatever. But I don't move away. "What do you have in mind?"


Re: Wolves in Wolves' Clothing (Post-Reg Fallout)

Sadie takes her glasses off and tucks hair behind her ears, then looks away awkwardly for a beat.

"Um. I don't know. I've never done this."

She turns back to him and chews her lip, looking at the table, then suddenly locking eyes with him.

"WhodoyouthinkisthebetterguybetweenNickorJake?"

Post by Marisol Morales on Sept 13, 2007, 12:34am

"What?" I don't even know what to narrate with that. What just happened? "Uh…crud, I don't know. Don't know Nick well enough to really say, but Jake's a solid guy when he's not being a jerk. His hearts in the right place even if his isn't, I guess…why do you ask?"

"That's beacuse whenever I'm around you're too busy trying to impress Paige to notice."

I apear, bored after all the registration stuff.

"Hi, Nick," Sadie sings, waving her fingers, then looking furtively at Army.

"Hi Sadie. Recover from the… incident?

It was quite the scene."

"I'm doing ok. Army talked me down, and they gave me pills. It's as close as I'll get to being a rebel," she says, throwing up the horns with her other hand. "…aside from my Star Wars Galaxy character, I mean."

"You PLAYED that?"

I dawn a look of mock Horror.

"It sounded cool at the time. Who doesn't want to be Mara Jade?" and she raises her fists together and makes the snap-hiss of a lightsaber with her tongue.

Post by Nick Nephrahim on Sept 13, 2007, 1:09am

"Yeah, right…"

I take a seat.

"You know, half the school thinks you're crazy now. Wish you didn't make such a big scene. It really spooked some of them."


Re: Wolves in Wolves' Clothing (Post-Reg Fallout)
Post by Sadie "Suicide Queen" Hannoura on Sept 13, 2007, 1:14am

"Spooked like Paige does, or spooked like…outcast?" she winces. "I was going for bravado."

"Dunno. I didn't stick around to find out. Paige never shot herself with a gun though."

"You don't think I'm weird now, do you?" she raises her eyebrows nervously. "I just…they wanted a demo."


Re: Wolves in Wolves' Clothing (Post-Reg Fallout)
Post by Nick Nephrahim on Sept 13, 2007, 1:33am

"No, I don't. I do wish you didn't do that though. Beacuse now other people might."

"You can't seriously believe we'll have a rash of people shooting themselves?"


Re: Wolves in Wolves' Clothing (Post-Reg Fallout)
Post by Nick Nephrahim on Sept 13, 2007, 1:44am

"I don't think so. Still a pain to think about though.

Just be more quiet next time. Half the team loves turning invisible. Try it."

"I don't know how I'd trigger that," she shrugs. "Maybe you can teach me how to Batman in on rooms like you always seem to."
