Sparks nodded as Aurellia explained that it was another group that that helped save the young former shadowclan member. That he was still undertreatment. Personally he wanted to meet this lad who was brave enough...or foolish… to go against his families way of life. He could be a major asset later on.
He glanced at the others who mentioned the mental scars. They were pups..of course there were going to be scars...honestly anyone could have been scared from seeing that. Having seen the brutality the shadowclan could dish out before. They were not a group to be dealt lightly with. ”Of course, all of them including you lad should talk about it with someone soon. That is not something you keep bottled up inside.
He said looking right at Acion. He knew first hand on bottling things up.
Sparks weren’t the only one looking at Acion, but all three of the pro heroes present there. A pro hero must always be ready for the mental impact of having to constantly face danger. Unspoken rule. The only one who might not have grasp it was him.
Having all the adults present looking at him, and the gaze, even though not judging, could really appeared to be judging, could be a little daunting. He looked away slightly, but then gathered all possible strength and courage he had and took to reply to him.”I’ll keep that in mind, sir.”
He turned looking at his older sister, wordlessly conveying the hidden message.
He nodded in approval to Acion’s response, then looked to Aurellia and bowed his head. “Excuse me, how terribly rude of me, My name is Jean-Luc Sparks. It is a honor to meet a real Angel, the rumors of your beauty do you no justice.”
He took her hand gently into his and bent down and kissed it, when he did she could feel a slight tingling of what seemed to be electricity from her lips. Nothing to leave a mark or hurt at all, but pleasurable. ”Oh…”
She was really wasn’t expecting such a greetings. And that gentle feeling on her lips. What?
Everybody around her could see a slight hue of pink on her face, one was trying to hide his slight irritation, but she quickly regathered her composure. ”Thank you very much for your compliment Mr Jean-Luc Sparks.”
He then glanced to the black hair. Allowing Aurellia to have her hand back “As well as the woman with a fighting spirit of a Dragon…”
He said with a mischievous smile. Such strong and beautiful eyes as well.
Kissing her hand with the same effect.
For the dragon-girl, she was more prepared, and somewhat less of a romanticist type. But still she replied to his politeness. ”Thank you sir.”
He glanced at the two men and while he knew of Albert, he knew nothing of the boy. “It's a pleasure to meet you both as well.” He said with a smile and slight nod.
They both returned the nod with respect, despite his earlier attempt. Was just politeness, that’s all, they dismissed.
He looked to Mako when she explained what she needed to do and wanting to meet up afterward. He smiled hearing the flirtation in her voice loud and clear, nodding to her as he agreed to meet her in the lobby. He watched her leave and cocked his head to the side as she hurried to help the blob student. Though his eyes wasn’t on the student… He snapped out of it when he noticed Retha walking right towards him. He straightened himself and looked back to Aurelia and the others when she explained she needed to ask him some medical things.
A slightly confused look on his face. Wait, she thought he was a doctor? Well he ‘played’ doctor before, but never really went to school for it. He bowed his head in respect to the two women in front of him, Aurellia and Dragonov. “If you ladies will please excuse me. I will be right back. “ He said with a wink. Before being half dragged away. ”Wait, so he’s a doctor?”
Dragunov asked confusedly, as if she couldn’t believe a man dressing like that being a doctor. Just look at the other doctors. He doesn’t look the same.”I don’t know but our ‘mother’ doesn’t sound like she is treating him so.”
Aurelia replied, noticing the differing tone from Retha just as she approached Sparks. ”But anyway. The students must have awakened. Would you like to come in there, young brother?””Of course.”
He replied as they all moved apart to let him and his giant wings through. ”Wait, you aren’t coming?””Unless necessary.”
She shrugged her shoulder. Professional heroes are like the representative of the justice system, aside from the police. And cases of re-victimization due to them aren’t that rare, so she should keep her distance for now, unless they want to meet her. Hopefully later when they are better, she, or maybe her team could address them better.
Acion shrugged as he came to the door, only to be met by Dulga as she left in a hurry, her coat hugging her body. He quickly stepped to the side not to get in her way. Damn that girl is always in a hurry.
After Dulga left, the door was still creaking open as Acion held onto it. But before entering, it took him a few seconds to get himself calmed. He was not sure how his friends would see him as he ran away in the middle of combat like that. Although his intent was not at all cowardice, not all people see things his way. ”Everyone. Please tell me you’re alright.”
When they came to a stop and far enough to have a private conversation. She instantly dropped the act. He stood there as she accused him of different things, and all he could think was…really?’
his eyebrow raised as Retha tried
to threaten him. His arms folded across his chest as she casually listened to her. Looking right back into her fiery emotion filled eyes. The woman clearly never played poker in her life. Throwing all her cards out on the table like she had an unbeatable hand.
He cleared his throat and said calmly, as his brilliant Gold eyes studied her suit with great detail. I never said i was a doctor ma’am. You just assumed that I was, and honestly i didn’t even think you thought that till you accused me.
He noted the best location for a body cam and pointed his finger casually so his palm was up, as if using his hand to prove a point. Suddenly a little Zap and the smell of Ozone filled the air, as a tiny arc was directed at her camera and mic frying the circuits of that system and its core. But leaving everything else intact. Wouldn’t do to have her go volcanic in the hospital.
His bored expression turned into an amused grin. “Thanks for telling me.” His whole body seemed to relax in front of her as he leaned his back against the wall. “Next time you try to follow someone, don’t use such a powerful perfume. Some people have a nose for it.
He said while tapping his nose with his right forefinger. ” I do appreciate the fine choice though. I always liked the smell of Sunflowers.”
He then raised that same finger up to start with bullet point one. ”First off, I doubt your microphone was strong enough to hear my conversation from that distance, let alone on top of a windy roof. Your camera is useless after the loss of that. Obvious Villain?’ The guy literally walked right by you and you did nothing. So I wouldn’t call him Obvious… and clearly if you couldn’t hear our conversation again your mic wouldn’t have picked it up. There is no collaboration between me and him. Threatening isn’t a crime. “
he said, his eyes never leaving hers.” I also haven’t had a chance to even talk with the authorities as Kaida was my priority, never had I said I refuse to reveal it. Though I’m sure that pretty girl with the wings could piece it together having fought them. So my input isn’t urgant.
He paused, looking at her puffed up expression which only made him smile more. “But a Pro hero resorting to Blackmail...is very disappointing. Though I guess this is the reason why they leave the police work to police and ’Heros’ to capture them. “ Now...
He said pushing himself off the wall using his back. Allowing his hands to fall and slapp against his thighs. Why would I tell you more about Kaida again? When you clearly are not in control of your emotions. You could do more harm to her emotionally.”
