Current plot
Many years ago Xavier's school for gifted mutants was attacked. It was left in ruin. Teachers and students abandoned it with no hope of returning to it for sanctuary...

Years later a professor named Jason Andrews returned life to the school's halls and rebuilt its walls. Students have once again come to learn at the school in safety.

Many other mutants aren't quite so lucky. Some still remain hidden in the shadows and some within factions like the brotherhood are left leaderless.

Neo was starving. He hadn't eaten in three weeks. THREE! It was crazy but he had gone longer. He was thankful for the torn jeans, tattered shirt and jacket some old lady gave him. He was thirsty but a fountain in a park had provided water. He had scrounged up three dollars on the streets. A dollar in change from trashcans. Sold a dollars worth of recyclables to the recycling plant. He found a quarter on his way to a diner he had heard about. There was slight dirt smudges on his cheeks.

No body odor though...central park had a place he could wash up but finding soap was a tricky thing. Usually involved stealing it from motels or inns when the maids weren't looking. Same thing with the shampoo. Tiny little bars or bottles that he made last for over a month sometimes. Maybe longer if he was lucky. He almost walked into the front door with how hungry he was. Sleep deprivation didn't help any either but oh well. Shaking his head. "That was close." he mumbled to himself.

Pulling open the door he slipped inside. Black circles under his eyes. Soft pale blond strands falling into his face. The only possession he owned was a native american beaded pouch bag full of a variety of nature based seeds. Finding an open seat he waited for a waiter....he couldn't read the menu since he never got to go to school long enough. If he had learned...he didn't remember. He pulled out the $5.25 cents he had and laid it on the counter. Counting it over and over again as his stomach growled loudly.

Thana walked, walked in to Mels Diner. So much had happened recently and she was lost as all hell. She went as sat in her normal booth, she had secretly claimed it. Then sat down an looked around her, noticing a guy counting out meager change. While it was an extremely beautiful body Thana knew that it was a guy. She just did. She called the waiter over. " Give that kid the biggest meal you have and a large milkshake. Here ." Thana said the waitress, giving her a fifty. " Keep the change." Thana said to her, and ordered her meal as well.

Thana guessed the kid was a mutant who had fallen hard , she had been there herself before . No where to go, nothing. Quietly she got up and walked over to him. " Hey Kiddo." She said kindly to the boy as she sat down. Her face full of genuine kindness.

Neo had passed a real potted plant. Not those fake ones people liked to buy. At times he wished people used more fake plants inside of buildings. A fake plant didn't have thoughts or feelings. Thus no buzzing, headaches or risk of embarressing himself. As he walked past it he heard the voices and sounds. Shaking his head he muttered too soft to hear to stop talking to him and leave him alone. Or just be quiet. He sat at the bar then blinked as the waiter came and gave a milkshake. His eyes widened. "But I..." he didn't get to answer as the man was gone.

He stared at the shake. Maybe it was poison? He thought to himself. Jumping as a girl spoke to him. Seeing the genuine kindness he took a few moments before he managed to feign a half smile. "Um...um...hi?" he said. Confused why she was talking to him. "Are you a cop?"

Thana looked at the boy at the bar, and smiled as the waiter gave her her milkshake. Before turning her attention back to the boy. " No Hun I'm not a cop, I'm like you ." Thana told him, flashing her eyes bright unearthly blue momentarily. Before she leaned in closely, " Pot plant gave you away, come, sit. I ordered you and me both food, try the milkshake it's delicious." She said to him. " I'm Red by the way." Thana told him , not even caring about his name just yet. As the food was brought out she smiled, a giant half piece of lasagna, well cooked veggies and fries came out for the boy. Thana herself had ordered small chicken wings things with fries. " Eat up, I'm paying for it and no I'm not the poisoning type." 


Thana took a mouthful of her food and looked at the boy, smiling at him kindly. Like she was at first he hadn't been from around here she could see that. " Relax kid I'm not going to hurt you, I promise." She said to the clearly nervous boy.

Neo looked at her and relaxed. Looking back at the milkshake and went to reach for it. His hand whipped back faster than the kickback of a high powered assault rifle. He flew from the seat so fast he sent the stool falling down. He also swayed and stumbled due to exhaustion and malnourishment. He shook his head. "I...I don't...know what your talking about. You must have seen things." he denied in an enhanced and heightened nervousness. He was now six shades paler. He picked up the stool and flushed.

Moving a seat further from her and grabbed the shake. "Thank you for the shake...I think its all I'll eat though." he said. He sipped at it eagerly. Hungrily. Thirstily. After so long it tasted good. He was getting an ice cream headache and probably going too fast but he wasn't adjusted to starvation and not eating too fast when he gets food. He listened to her and frowned. "I can't pay you back...but thank you." He said softly. She was being kind. He relaxed some but he didn't stop being tense.

Thana laughed softly and shook her head . " Hun with what I just showed you? Nevermind. " She told him, shaking her head slightly. " Believe what you want, I'm not going to hurt you kid. And you don't have to pay me back. Just chill." Thana told him, smiling softly. " I'm not going to hurt you, your not alone." 


Thana knew what it was like to be alone, and scared. She knew this kid was probably scared out of his mind. So looked around the empty diner . " You don't have to be scared of me." Thana promised, lifting her hand and summoning an orb. " Your not alone." Thana explained , quickly getting rid of it once he had seen it.

Neo looked at her. "Showed me? Huh? I didn't see anything. What are you talking about?" He said in confusion. He blinked a bit. He frowned and looked at the milkshake. Going back to it and had it halfway done. He listened to her. "I can't trust you saying you won't hurt me. I have heard that line too often...I don't believe it anymore. Even when I do I always get hurt...so please dont' say something you can't keep miss." He said softly. Distantly. An ice cream headache hit him a second later and he held his head. Eyes squeezed shut as he'd finished the milkshake off too fast. "ow ow ow ow..." He said. "Headache...ow..." he said.

Hearing your not alone he thought he saw something out the corner of his eye but he wasn't sure. He didn't stop to ask because his stomach started making a strange sound. "Excuse me...I drank that too fast." He rushed towards the bathroom and ran into the nearest restroom. The empty female one and threw up into a toilet. He couldn't read the sign saying womans. Just saw the restroom icon.

Thana looked at Neo and rolled her eyes, " Don't worry about it." She replied, unsure of what else to do. She watched as he ran to the.. Girls bathroom . Then followed him in. "Wrong bathroom kiddo, not that it matters." She commented, gently holding his hair out of his face.

She remained crouched there and held on to his hair. " Before you try to run away again I'm trying to be your friend here. I have an ability as well Kiddo. Now will you please just calm down? I don't want to have to knock you out just so you will listen."

Neo was getting sick. Flinching as she touched him. "Thanks." He said before his stomach slowly settled down. He closed his eyes a bit. Not feeling well and it wasn't just from the food. "Wrong bathroom? How so? It had the restroom icon." he got out with a beautiful islanders accent. He looked at her. "Fr..." he shut down when she said ability. "I'm not with an ability. I'm a curse. A black mark. A walking disease." He coughed and threw up a bit. "Thank you for the food>" He said softly. Not saying much else as he groaned. He didn't understand. "I don't...understand...I'm sorry." He hoped his stomach settled soon.

Thana nodded as he thanked her, and laughed slightly as he didn't know he was in the wrong room. " Doesn't matter." She told him, then listened and nodded and sat down against the door. " Some people call it a gift, some call it a curse. Some like you even call it a disease by whatever you want to call it I have it to. I can show you if you wish ." Thana told him, " You don't have to understand right now. But believe me when I say I am a friend." She said to Neo not knowing what else to say to him.

Neo looked at her as she spoke. He couldn't see how it was the wrong room. The icons clearly pointed at this as the restroom. He never looked on the door...it never made sense. He threw up a bit more before he whimpered. Shaking his head. "I don't call it  a disease my family did...its because I'm defective." he said softly. He closed his eyes. Opening them and looking at her. "Friend...friend is good." He said with a groan. "I'm hungry and..." He eyes widened and he tried to move fast but he fell face first when his hair jerked him to the floor. "My money...my money...leggo I left my money."
