What do you think bro? With your power to give us manpower and my business skills along with management, you think we can turn this place into something?

I don't know bro....this seems like a big task....

The Frazier brothers were staring at a rundown theater that was part of a plaza that was abandoned. They weren't in the sanctuary for a very long time but they felt that with their skills, they could bring entertainment to this place. Kamar and Kaleem walked around he plaza to take a look at not only the theater but the other 3 places within the plaza. I'm saying bro...what if we put like a dollar store or discount store here in the corner that sells probably very affordable clothing, snacks, canned foods, utensils, a few electronics, dvds, and so on...maybe make what used to be two businesses into one full store by breaking down a wall and starting from there. And then maaaaaybe...add something else like another hangout spot...

Whoa bro...I thought we were just doing the theater? This whole plaza has potential. Bakery or candy shop, ice cream, gym...come on bro...let's go inside...

Kamal walked into the small abandoned theater so to get a feel for what they wanted. Kaleem brought about 2 clones to follow so they could work together to move the heavy things. It wasn't long after checking things out that Kamal found the film storage room where he could use the old film until he could bring newer movies onto the set. Maybe make the place a retro theater? Whatever....but with his brother's help, they'd have the plaza ready in no time.

Kaleem turned. Kamar, I'm going to leave and explore some. Wait what? Bro, I need your help... Kaleem gave a sigh, allowing 2 more of himself to sprout from his original body. There....now you have 4 helpers...I'm going to head out...I'll be back soon... He said leaving the theater and walked to go and meet the others like himself and his brother.

Demetry took a step back from Roxy. She laughed slightly shaking her head. " Relax. I wasn't actually going to hurt him." She stated, though looking at Roxy she knew that wouldn't cut it. "If I wanted to fight I would of come prepared to fight." She huffed, placing the knife back into the casing the hung on her pants. "You're no fun. I could of got an easy way out of my chores from some idiot." She waves to Isaac. "No offence."
She eyes the Roxy up and down shaking her head. " Do you have a crush on him or something? I mean he is pretty pathetic but just wondering." She shrugged, laughing afterwards. She knew that she wasn't saying the nicest things in the world but she couldn't help it. When you steel a girls bait certain questions need to be asked. "I mean you are pretty cocky about your fighting skills, maybe not so cocky about your dating skills?"

Quinn bowed shallowly and gestured in a "ladies first" motion, then he smiled and followed Jen out of Liz's little shop, He noticed but said nothing in regards to her cowl being up. He wasn't sure if it had something to do with her particular mutation and the sun, or if it was more of a shame thing, either way it was none of his business. Taking her arm in his, the two began walking down the street. Quinn couldn't help but smile inwardly, it felt good to have someone of similar experience to hang out with again. However, after a moment he realized he hadn't yet said anything, thus he blurted rather uncharismatically:

"So, you seem like you know this town pretty well, I don't suppose you know where the Lab is?

The water swirled down the drain in the tub Kyara knew as a bed. It was bright outside and a quick look at the clock confirmed her fears. Slept in again... oh well. Maybe she hadn't missed breakfast? The kitchen revealed Cyrus looming over his own plate with a pile of pancakes adorning the center of the table. Upon seeing her his eyes widened and he gently pulled the pile towards himself, "These are my pancakes, and I shall protect them... with my life if I need to." "Oh... Okay." Kyara responded and dejectedly turned around to leave. Cyrus laughed and gestured at her "Come on now, I can joke can't I? Go ahead and have some!" Kyara grinned and sat at the table and with joyful eyes asked, "How do I know you didn't poison them?" Cyrus adopted a pleading look and exasperated, "You trust me don't you? I wouldn't ever poison my own family!" She laughed, and took a plate. Alright then, thanks. After a couple bites she turned back to him, So where is Sera? The response, "She had to leave already, some kind of emergency across town about a dog. You shouldn't call her that you know, she wants you to think of her as a mom." I know, It's just... Kyara suddenly seemed lost in her thoughts. Cyrus tried to save himself, "It's alright, honestly, she'd answer to almost anything as long as it's you calling her." After a couple minutes of silence Cyrus stood up and placed his now empty plate in the wash. "Hurry up, I need to leave soon." Kyara glanced at him quizzically. Why are you waiting for me? Cyrus motioned at her, "You promised to at least try talking to a new face remember? And I'm holding you to that. Now come on, I don't want to be late" She had forgotten and now regretted making that promise. Oh well, no way out now, not with how eager Cyrus looked. She scarfed down the rest of her breakfast and followed him out the front door. Cyrus grabbed her hand and pulled her along, "I saw something move over there, lets go!" Cyrus pulled her hand away, I can do this on my own, you'll just make it worse. Cyrus raised his eyebrows, "Well, I won't believe it until I see it, now lets get going." he said while pushing her forward.

@King Tai
They didn't meet anyone in the next few blocks, or the next, or when they finally reached Cyrus's restaurant. Cyrus crossed his fingers and walked right past his own destination, in hopes of finding a new face in town. Finally, in a more abandoned portion of town he found what he was looking for. "Look, there's one!" he announced joyfully and pulled Kyara towards the young man. Instead of approaching the man himself though, he pushed Kyara out in front of himself and yelled "Talk to him!" while he ran, presumably to open his restaurant for the day, or to watch from a distance. "Wait!" was the desperate reply which wasn't heeded in the least. I'll have to talk to that jerk later.

After leaving his brother behind with his clones helping with the cleaning of the theater, Kaleem pulled his hand held video game out while walking to keep him entertained until he runs into a person he's never met. They already chosen a new business for themselves and with their skills, they'd have the place ready for the others in that abandoned area.

Kaleem was busy looking into his device before hearing a little commotion that now took gained his attention. Kaleem stared at this.....fish person? fish girl? He knew there were different types of mutants but this was a bit...different. Not that he's judging, he's just never seen this type of mutation. There was someone else with her, a male, whoever he was....Kaleem watched the guy push her towards him, causing him to raise an eyebrow. Kaleem placed his device back in his pocket and turned to her.

Kaleem had a bad habit with staring, rude but it was just his way of showing intrigue or just plain curiosity. Parent trying to get you to make friends even though they are going about it the wrong way but feels that you'd be nothing but a loner if you didn't try even though their efforts would be pushing it too much to make you look like you're desperate for attention? Unless......you have a crush on me that I'm not aware of? Kaleem said to break the ice. He looked the girl up and down. She was smaller than him. Kaleem stood at 5'6. Well...he wanted to meet someone he never met so....he was going to see how this went.

Roxy rolled ber eyes. This was what she got for dealing with teenagers. "No I am not dating him. I just met him. Just because he is missing a few marbles doesnt mean you should take advantage of him." The girl was a bully. She was looking for people to take advantage simply because she didnt like her life. Which was really no excuse. Roxy wasn't going to allow thw girl to take her frustrations out on others.

"I have no dating skills because I've never dated but if you think I am going to let you bully your way out of chores or entertain yourself by taking advantage of others you are wrong. We are supposed to be different from humans why dont you try acting like it?" Roxy growled. She hated people that had to hurt others in order to feel good about themselves. She would put a stop to it whenever she could. She wasn't powerless anymore.

"Whatever you say." She commented to the dating part laughing. Listening to the rest of her sentence, Demetry paused for a moment, biting her tongue and looking up at Roxy. " Being nice get's you no where in this world. " She yawned, and shook her head. "Trust me I have tried countless times and all it did is get me used. Which would you want to be the toy or the user?" Eyeing Roxy up and down, rolling her eyes. She held her wrist with her hand.
"You still have hope for this world, but I lost mine long ago. There is no in between. You are used, the user, or the savior." She looked Roxy up and down. "You are a savior but with every hero their light only lasts so long. Sure I would love to be different, better than human, but as long as we live here, where we have nothing it is not possible." She sighed shrugging. She remembered when she was that naive, but it was over now. "Everyone learns at some point. I'm not saying it's right. I know it's not, but there is no point to change it. "

Jen heard the question and smiled. "I better know, my Dad works there! From here it's that way." she said pointing towards a slightly taller and more protected building. She sighed. "I wish we weren't forced to go there. I mean, most of us aren't a threat unless were criminally active, but that's everybody, not just mutants. It's sad."

Isaac started to shake uncontrollably as the Red-headed woman pulled out a knife "P-Please ma-ma'am I won't tell a-a-an-anybody." He shrunk into himself looking like he was about to cry "Just don't-t hurt me please I'll d-do what I can I'll bake you some b-brownies if you want? I'm not really g-good at much else" the young man gave a shaky smile trying to appease Demetry

@KatherinWinter
He was strangely relieved when Roxy appeared between him and Demetry. Isaac just hid behind the pale slightly blue-haired woman, making himself seem as small as possible as he whimpered in fear and averted his eyes to the ground.

Roxy ignored Issac's behavior but his reaction worried her. First because he apparently thought this child was more of a threat than she was. Plus it proved that she was going to have to watch him because he couldn't protect himself. She had sworn once she was free that she would protect those who couldn't protect themselves and Issac had just made the top of her list.

"God I thought I was jaded." Roxy shook her head. "If you want to be the user you had been stay far from me little girl because I will eat you for breakfast." She pulled out two knife. She threw one across the street. It embedded itself in the center of the door. The other she held. "I am no one's savior. Nor am I a user. When I was younger I was used but now that I am here I am taking control of my life."

She stepped into the shadows. Before the other woman could so much as blink Roxy reappeared behind the girl. She placed the knife against the younger woman's throat. "This is your chance to take control of your life. If you don't like your life or the way the world works than stop whining and do something about it or shut the hell up."

Isaac just about had enough violence for the day so when Roxy disappeared then appeared behind the girl, an instinct clicked in his brain and he sprinted as fast as he could away from all the madness. Once he reached his home, Isaac collapsed behind the counter on top of his sleeping bag then fell into a blissful sleep.

Demetry eyed the girl, sighing. Not how she wanted to start her day. She sidestepped in the opisite direction, her hand reaching at her waist, pulling up the sharp metal blade. " I am not scared to kill you either." She glared Roxy. She stood on her toes, waiting for Roxy's move. "When this fight is over, remember I was not the one to start it."
She jumped, caught off guard as Roxy had disappeared from her sight, she cursed. She felt the edge of the blade tilt onto her skin, and she quickly knew what was happening. Roxy's power, she just figured it out. She didn't bother to dwell on what it was but instead she let her skin heat up to an unbearable touch. She grabbed the wrist Rocky had her knife in and pushed it away from herself.

Kyara looked up after she was pushed forward, jolting back slightly as she saw Kaleem. In a flurry of fear, she assessed her situation. What could be said that wouldn't make her look pathetic? Too late, she realized that Kaleem had begun speaking while she was lost in her thoughts. "Wait.. What?" she asked, looking confused having heard only half of what was said. Parents? Attention? Loner? If she was capable of blushing her cheeks would have surely been bright red. She noticed him looking at her body, and suddenly felt very self-conscious. Was there anything wrong? With a quick glance down she noticed her hands slightly trembling while turning clear and fluid. No, this can't be that bad, can it? Keep yourself together She gently shook her head in an attempt to reorientate herself and forced her hands to maintain their shape. Looking back up, she attempted to speak. "Ummmmm..." She swallowed "Sorry, I didn't really, well, umm, hear what you said, and well, ". she finished the sentence somewhat quietly "....sorry".

Kaleem continued to stare at the female waiting on her response after giving a little joke but just from her reactions, she must be the timid or super nervous and awkward type. Was it because of her appearance? He was sure normal people would probably stare at her because of her mutant features. To be honest he didn't see her as weird. Just more unique. She is just like him. But everyone comes in different shapes and sizes.

She seemed confused by what he was saying. Was English not her first language? Kaleem noticed her hands were changing and his stare became more focused and bewildered by the way her hands turned. This was definitely intriguing. Hm? He answered back. With her comment about not really hearing what he said and then apologizing, Kaleem also remembered that his brother told him that staring was not polite, causing him to avert his eyes for a moment and looked back at her.

Eh...no-...no..um it's fine. No need to be sorry. I was joking...even though it was a lame joke. Heh....just talking about families and how they can be embarrassing and-...nevermind. My name Kaleem. What's yours? and....if you don't mind me asking...what was happening to your hands?

Roxy stepped into the shadows when the girl went to grab her wrist. She had been fighting a long time against people with alot more training than this girl. She watched as the girl surrounded herself with fire. She was glad that Issac had run off atleast he would be safe from this whiney manipulater. She clapped her hands still holding the knife.

"I don't know what your problem is kid. Nor do I care. If you want to fight we can fight but I'll win. There are places my shadows can take me your flames won't work." Roxy stated calmly. She twirled the knife like it was a baton. "You want to give up and throw yourself a pity part feel free. No matter how bad your life has been someone has had it worse. I fight hard to get to this sanctuary and now that I am here no one is going to control me ever again. If I catch you bully someone again you will feel my blade. Your flames aren't fast enough to stop me."

Quinn nodded solemnly, his joints making a small creaking sound as he did. "Yeah, and perhaps the worst part is, the moment we fight back or try to do something about it, we prove them right..." Quinn's voice trailed off thoughtfully. After a long moment of silence he asked the question that he couldn't keep from rooting around in his mind "Your dad works there, do you know what its like?" his playful demeanor gone, his eyes weren't quite able to meet hers, but he thought that if he could keep himself from staring at the ground, maybe it would come off as casual, and she wouldn't be able to tell how scared he was.

She looked at him with a questioning look. "Surprisingly, yes, but only the areas I was allowed. My dad brought me up their as a summer intern, but I was only allowed in the technical and office areas. None of the labs or anything. I actually got to help their mechanics and technicians. But other than that, just the 18 times I've been their for the check. My dad doesn't let them do a full check apparently without him doing it. He'll bring my fallen scales and other samples like blood to study there tho." she said with a flick of her tail. She saw his slump in demeanor. "Are you scared? Because it's not that bad, but I have a hard skin and they put you to sleep while they do it, or at least they do with me." she said while putting a hand on his shoulder.

Demetry glared the girl. " I wasn't really bullying him." She spat. She pushed a piece of her hair back. " Like I said, fighting was not what I wanted, but it clearly was what you wanted. You have nothing on me and you know it. I am not a kid, and you are quite..." She paused a moment, moving her fingers together. " I guess pathetic." She help the knife in her hand not bothering to twirl it around like the girl had. She didn't need to, because she didn't need to look tough. She didn't need to pretend to be something like this girl clearly did. A smile withered onto her face as she thought about it.

"What else do you call trying to scare Issac into doing chores you didn't want to do?" Roxy asked sarcastically. She wasn't playing games. She had grown up in a tough place there was no way this teen had the skills she had learned. Not that she wanted to prove that. Roxy was beyond proving herself for others. She knew what her strengths and weakness were. This girl thought that she was all that and a bag of chips when in reality she was just an imposter trying to prove that she didn't need anyone.

"You're a sad little girl. If I catch you trying to take advantage or bull another person you will regret it." Roxy told the girl as she made her way back across the street. She was an adult now. She could walk away. The girl wasn't worth her time. She had only gotten involved because of Issac.

Kyara looked embarrassed again. Umm, right, yeah, my name is Kyara, and that, she said waving one hand behind her, "was Cyrus." Looking back to Kaleem, she found that she couldn't meet his eyes. "Sorry, he's always been like that." she muttered somewhat quietly. Having second thoughts, she knew that now there wasn't anyway she could leave without seeming outright rude, or even stranger than she already did. Maybe she could just flow with the conversation? No, this was the only thing she could do at this point. Even after coming to this conclusion though, she seemed slightly hesitant. She looked back at her hand. What is wrong? This shouldn't be hard for you. Just answer the question already. "Well, um, I've always changed when I'm nervous, I mean, I've always um, anyway, I turn into a liquid, that's my, um, mutation. It's harder to control when I'm nervous." She said, with the last part coming out more quickly than she had intended. "What's your mutation?" She asked, noticing his collar, before her eyes widened as she realized just how insensitive she sounded. "Sorry, sorry, I didn't mean.. I didn't mean to say anything... just, just.. sorry.." She said as she slowly hung her head dejectedly.
