Description

Ron Faulk

Metal Jacket

Image
[size=125]
Image
Age:22

Role:Guy 1

Power: Super Strength: Ron's body is stronger than any creature known. His bones are able to withstand unimaginable amounts of pressure and his muscles are able to dish out even more. His body is the same as any humans, just able to withstand and dish out more.
Image

Description: 6 ft tall, 150 lbs., Muscular but not bulging muscles, his hair is really a light black but can show up a deep blue on sunny days.

Personality: Ron is a guy who is based off right. He grew up on the movies with the heroes doing what was right instead of what needed to be done. Ron is a nice guy and is up for fun but if he's suppose to do something, that comes first. He is all about his friends and will be ready to help or do anything for them on a dime.

History: Ron's life was not that bad but he grew up with a very unique skill. It wasn't the super strength but the ability to put himself in others shoes. If someones down he's able to sit down and listen and understand. His power was unique and he practiced his super strength, learning new skills and all but it wasn't until he met the others that he really started to kick it in gear. When he met them he felt like he had a purpose, a reason to protect everyone. So now he is more than happy to be apart of their group, and would do anything and everything for his friends.

Skills:Ron is very athletic and very good at sports

Weaknesses: Since Ron's muscles run at such a high speed, other organs can get overwhelmed easier. A huge thing is when Ron gets dizzy, the effects last longer than a normal person and when he's dizzy his body turns more into a plow of destruction than the insturment of strength he usually is.

Fears: His friends becoming corrupt, with his friends being almost everything to him, the worst thing could be for one of them to become evil and turn against him.

Other: Ron's hero name was gave to him by his military brother who said that he can tear through anything like a full metal jacket.

Theme Song: Ladies and Gentlemen-Saliva

So begins...

Arthur stared up at Lauri blankly when she walked around and placed her hand son his shoulders, this time she asked him to come with her. He held his bowl steady while she gave his shoulders a few small shakes and he closed his eyes for a couple of moments until she stopped. This was definitely unnecessary for his brain to take in.

"I told you I'm eati--"

"Then you can help me pick out Christmas presents for Derek and Rain, and you'll be able to get Ron and your girlfriend a gift too! How about that? Let's not patrol today and let's just take a break!"

His eyes snapped open and he felt his face turn hot and he glared up at her nervously. "Jasper isn't my girlfre--!" He cut off as he watched the metal spoon be lifted from his bowl and Lauri stole a bite of his breakfast. "That's mine!" He said, but she was already walking away from him with a pleased smile. His eyes followed her with an excruciating death glare which, as usual, she paid absolutely no attention to.

"I'm going to get dressed! Hurry up and eat so we can go!"

She's not going to let me refuse is she... He thought to himself matter-of-factly as he watched his friend go upstairs. He relaxed a little and turned back to his food, suddenly loosing his appetite. Not because Lauri had taken a bite with his spoon, they shared food like that all the time, it was mostly because her shaking him caused him to get a little dizzy. "Cavolo..", he mumbled, letting out a sigh and standing up. He headed back upstairs and dumped his bowl into the sink and, after washing his dishes, he dried them off and put them away in their rightful places before also heading upstairs to get dressed and take his medication.

He kept his black slacks but changed into a white, long-sleeved shirt with a thicker, light blue sweater over top along with a dark red bandana scarf that hung loosely around his neck. He put on the same shoes he had on the day before and then made his way downstairs to the living room to find that Lauri wasn't down yet and it looked like Jasper wasn't in the living room anymore, which would explain the awkward scene he'd just witnessed. Ron and Rain had just finished kissing each other only a couple of seconds after Ron got to the bottom of the stairs and turned to enter the living room. It wasn't surprising judging by what he saw the two doing earlier, but really? This was the second time now he'd come in at a private time!

"You two are extra lovey dovey this morning, aren't you?" He purred, walking in with a sweet smile. "Lauri and I are going out for a bit to go Christmas shopping. I'd ask if you'd want to come but we both still need to get Rain a gift and, well, you seem pretty happy with your position at the moment." He glanced over at Ron with a hinting smile as he said that last part. Arthur was back to his old self, clear that he wanted to move on from the tense atmosphere before when he gave Ron his lecture.

A few moments later Lauri finally came downstairs and Arthur slid his fingers into his pants pockets and looked over to her. "Ready to go?"

(Man..I just have bad timing don't I...)

He smiled back at her as she asked the question, sitting to where their thighs were touching and his left arm now wrapped around her back, holding her tight. "Well let's see, the first day you joined the team, you walked in wearing that sun dress. When you smiled at everyone, I mean, wow, I was amazed at how someone could be that beautiful. About a week after you joined the team, and a week of me wowing over you, I knew that nothing would make me more happy than to be with you, and to kiss you, to feel your soft lips." He said as he leaned back in and gave her another loving kiss. It felt so good to finally be able to show a little love, to be able to finally show Rain what he wanted for years. He broke the kiss and had a big smile on again as he looked back at her.

"Hey, I told Jasper that we should take a day off today, enjoy ourselves a little. We can get away with it after yesterday. I need to do a little shopping and I want to make it up to Jasper, after yesterday. When it all went down I, kind of yelled at her, I was emotional and all that.." He looked down as he held her hand and smiled, "But it's all going to be better now, everything is looking up." He said as he got up. "I kind of stink, so I'm gonna go take a shower." He said as he started to back away. "Oh and just so you know, if you want to be, you can be my girlfriend now." He said jokingly but serious to. It sounded a little childish but he wanted to make sure that she knew he wasn't toying with her, that this all ment a lot to him.

"I was thinking, after yesterday, I could probably get us all a day off, day of rest after that. You go get in the shower and get dressed and we'll all have a day. And you can help me pick out a second gift for you, to make up for me being an ass."

Jasper shook her head and dusted off her jeans awkwardly, she felt out of place with Rain in the room. Shifting her feet, she crossed her arms and looked longingly at the stairs, "nah you go with Rain, I want it to be a surprise. I'll just stay here and hang out with Derek or something." She allowed a small smile to creep onto her lips, but she quickly wiped it away and turned to go get ready for her shower.

She grabbed a clean towel out of the hall closet and stuck it in the bathroom before going to her room to grab a set of fresh clothes. She was about to begin undressing in the bathroom when she realized that she had left Booze downstairs and she hadn't fed him yet. In fact, she wasn't sure she fed him the day before, either. Jasper decided to quickly grab the lizard and feed him before she took her shower, taking pity on the small beast.

She walked down the stairs and stopped abruptly. "...I was amazed at how someone could be that beautiful. About a week after you joined the team, and a week of me wowing over you, I knew that nothing would make me more happy than to be with you, and to kiss you, to feel your soft lips." She hopped back so that she was behind the wall and they couldn't see her. Shoulders drooping, she leaned forward and watched as her best friend locked lips with another girl.

She couldn't tell you why, but Jasper suddenly became angry, and it only grew as she listened to the pair talk more. "Oh and just so you know, if you want to be, you can be my girlfriend now." Her tight fists were spitting sparks and the lights flickered. Quickly before they could see her, she ran up the stairs as stealthily and quietly as she could and jumped into the shower.

The water hurt. Each drop sizzled as it touched her pale skin and shocked her repeatedly, leaving small burns all over her body until she calmed down. She wasn't jealous of Rain, of course not. Ron was a brother, but her sisterly instincts went crazy at the sight of him kissing and talking sappy to her. She didn't know if she was mad at Ron or Rain, and it didn't help that they were all so close to her that she couldn't stand the thought of it being either one of them.

Jasper rung out her hair as she exited the shower, feeling a bit better aside from the pinpricks covering her body. She dried herself of and wiped away the charred hair and skin, leaving behind raw red patches all over. Frustrated, she quickly threw on her clothing. Her shirt was long sleeved with black and white stripes. She wore an open, bright red, leather jacket, and plain black skinny jeans. She didn't bother with shoes, not thinking that she'd be going out at all; after yesterday, a nice lazy day by the fireplace would suffice for her. She blow dried her hair, and decided to leave it down for the day. After she was sure that she was presentable, she made her way out of her room, Booze's newly filled food bowl in hand, and went downstairs again.

She made a point of going the long way around to avoid the living room on her way to the kitchen, in case the two love birds were still in there. She set the bowl down on the floor for when her lizard decided to come for it, and began busying herself with making herself a nice cappuccino. She kept a can of her mother's signature blend hidden in a drawer under the counter, and she pulled it out and began preparing to make it. Jasper realized the can was just about empty and decided that it would be nice to visit her mom at the cafe before Christmas, she'd be able to stock up then. She didn't visit often, her mother and her just about lost touch after she joined the Alphas, and she only really visited to refill her cans and drop off checks that she'd make to help her out since she wasn't working there anymore. It's not that Jasper didn't love her mother anymore, she did, but her mom didn't seem to understand why Jasper joined the Alphas, and they didn't see eye to eye about it. The thought made her sad, but she knew that if she visited more often, her mom would think she was going to come back and stay with her, and Jasper didn't want to give her false hope. She also wanted to avoid the terrible fights that seemed to be more and more common in their conversations.

She pulled her mug out of the microwave and grabbed a spoon before seating herself at the table. Stirring her cup, she debated bringing Ron and Rain next time she went, to soften her mom up. She always liked Ron, treating him like a son. Jasper wasn't the only one he had comforted when her dad began to drink, after all. She licked the spoon and took a long drink, inhaling the sweet aroma with a content sigh. Or perhaps she'd bring Arthur, her mother was always a sucker for foreign people. She'd be too busy talking to him about Italy to start up a fight with Jasper.

Slowly, she stood up and walked over to grab a muffin, but the tin was gone. Berkman probably finished them off. Rolling her eyes, she decided to use the pastry making skills she'd acquired at the cafe to busy herself for some time. She put up her hair in a messy ponytail, put on an apron, and washed her hands. Then, she began getting out ingredients and started working on making her favorite desert, a cream and fruit roll. Jasper allowed herself to zone out as she started to knead the dough.

Ron jumped in the shower and cleaned himself happily as he whistled and soaped himself up. After years of looking at this woman, wanting to be close to her, finally he was. He was happy now, but he wasn't. As he whistled to himself in the shower, he realized that something was picking at him, something inside of him was biting at him saying, what about Jasper. It was, weird. He loved his friend, she and him were as close as they could get, or, her though they could get. And even though him and Rain were finally a thing, he was worried about Jasper, like he didn't want to show her that they were together. He didn't want Jasper to see them as a couple for some reason. He stood still in the shower, dumbfounded, at how he was acting, like him and Rain was something to be ashamed of, at least to Jasper.

Ron got out of the shower still running his mind through all his jumbled up thoughts as he put on some cloths. Dressing himself in a plain grey hoodie and some blue jeans, he headed downstairs. He looked at himself in the mirror as he passed the stairs and gave a chuckle. He never was a sense of style, when he went shopping it was what was comfortable, and what was cheap. That's why Jasper insisted to come with him, she said that she wouldn't have Ron walking around looking like a bum. "I..guess she won't be doing that anymore.." He said to himself, a little weirded out by the change. Now that him and Rain were out in the open, she might now do some of the things they did before. The thought escaped his mind as the framiler scent entered his nostrils and he came into the kitchen with big eyes. "I knew it! You were hiding some from me!" He said as he saw the coffee mug. He walked over and tried reaching around her for the cup. 'Gimme, gimme, gimme!!" He said like a little kid as he tried to reach for the cup. As she worked at the dough he smiled as his hands went up to her shoulders, his hands lightly touching them to make sure he didn't cause her pain. He very lightly started to massage her shoulders as she worked the dough. "May I pleaseeeeeee have a drink Jas? I haven't had some of momma's coffee in a lifetime. You're making some pastries to!? Ohh you're amazing." He said as he stopped working her shoulders and stepped back. A little bit of a frown came to his face as he realized he couldn't be doing things like that to her anymore. Some of the ways they acted towards each other would be a little inapropriate around someone's girlfriend or boyfriend. He coughed and looked to her. "Uhmmm.....so you haven't been to momma's in a while right? You should go visit her, get some more blend while your there." He said with a chuckle as he looked down at his hands as he fiddled his thumbs around each other. "Also, uhm, I think, me and Rain, are like a thing now...so yea." He said, almost like it was a bad thing to her as he avoided eye contact, knowing she'd be able to read him like a book if she could see his eyes and was frankly, scared of what she might see.

"You know, I should go see what the others are up to, tell them we can take a day off." He said as he nodded and looked up at her, flashing a fake smile quickly. "Call or text me if you want anything OK?" He said as he walked away. He sat back on the couch in the living room as he turned on the news, watching the large flat screen as his mind tried to get his emotions right.

Rain S. Daniels


Rain blushed even deeper at Ron's words. She'd never thought of herself as beautiful, and to hear that coming from Ron, it really meant a lot. Not that Jason, her brother, had never made her feel cherished, but she'd never met a person who made her feel as loved as she was now.

While she was thinking all this, Ron got up. "I kind of stink, so I'm gonna go take a shower." Rain nodded in assent, still deep in thought. "Oh and just so you know, if you want to be, you can be my girlfriend now." The words were jaunty and unexpected. Rain's head jerked up to look at Ron, but he was already gone. Yes, yes a million times! her mind screamed, Rain beaming uncontrollably.

While she waited for Jasper and Ron, Rain sat curled up on the couch, her mind in a whirl. Somehow, Jason had wormed his way into her thoughts, and she couldn't stop thinking about him. Despite the fact that Rain had been the one to disown him (in a sense), she missed him terribly. Now, she could almost hear Jason's voice in her mind, telling her how he was too worried about her and Ron, what if Ron hurt himself in an accident, what if Ron died? She knew that she would almost definitely be the one to heal Ron, but in doing so, she would weaken herself, and then what use would that be? But she held true to her words from earlier, she knew that she would give up her life for Ron if she had to. Jason wouldn't approve, she knew, but then again, what did Jason know? He hadn't been strong enough to control himself, who was he to control her?

"No, Jason, I don't care what you think, I'm going through with this," she said aloud, expelling Jason's voice from her imagination. She got up, looked down at herself and realised that she felt cold without Ron beside her. She ran upstairs and got a sweater, then ran downstairs again.

He saw Rain as she came down the stairs and smiled to himself, he was happy were things were now, real happy. He got up and came behind her, putting his hands on her hips and turning her to face him and picking her up in his hands. He smiled as he looked up at her, "So, my new woman, how about we go shopping, I need to get some presents and there isn't anything more I would love to do than have a day with you." He said as he brought her down enough to where he could give her a kiss. "Can you go tell the people to get us a town car ready, I gotta ask Jasper something." He said as he let her down and with a smile turned to head into the kitchen. "Hey Jas, I'm going to run out with Rain, I have to pick up some things. Tell momma I said hi and I'll visit after christmas, also please get some coffee for me." He said with his head poked into the doorway. "Also, take Arthur and Lauri with you, it'd be nice if you could make some friends ya know." He said teasing her. "Bye Jas, love ya." He said before heading outside and jumping into the town car with Rain in it. "Ready?" He said with a smile as he told the driver to head off.

They had gone to a few places, Ron buying a I-pod for Arthur to help block out the world for in places like cars. A special made pair of gloves for Jasper, a cloth that wouldn't stop her electric current but still warm her hands, and a card he wrote. He had the driver buy a very old and nice bottle of scotch for Lauri, and he already had his gift for Rain. He also gave a list to the driver of things to buy and get to the home before christmas. He walked with Rain down to this small cafe and bought them both some lunch as they sat on the patio. He looked over at Rain, staring a little. "I honestly can't tell you how great today was, you made it pretty nice too." He said as he took a sip of his soda.

"I knew it! You were hiding some from me! Gimme, gimme, gimme!!"

Jasper laughed and scooted the mug just out of Ron's reach. "There's never enough of mom's blend to share. Ever. You'll just have to go buy some yourself." She kept working at the dough and allowed herself a smile as Ron messaged her shoulders, easily working out a knot. "You know where the cafe is, why don't you take Rain there when you two go shopping today?" She suggested, picking up the dough and dropping it into the jellyroll pan before spreading it out to fit the pan. She stopped as soon as she felt Ron's hands leave her back. The atmosphere seemed to turn thick and awkward in a matter of seconds.

He coughed, a tell tale sign to Jasper that something was wrong. She kept her back to him, her hands hovering over the dough as she awaited Ron's explanation of his sudden change of mood. None came.

"Uhmmm.....so you haven't been to momma's in a while right? You should go visit her, get some more blend while your there."

She sighed, but didn't push for answers. Jasper swept a strand of hair out of her face, leaving a smudge of flour on her forehead, and picked up the pan to bake the cake part of the roll. She stuck it into the oven and wiped her hands on her apron. "I'm planning to run over on Christmas." She responded, leaning against the counter and crossing her arms, "I might have Arthur come with me. I sick of her picking fights anymore, it's a lot easier to face her with someone to butter her up first."

She watched as Rain came down and frowned as Ron went over to her quickly, as if she didn't matter anymore. "Well bye, you two." She muttered as they left, then went to working on the filling for the roll. Maybe she would just invite Arthur and Laurie instead.

It was way too obvious that he was lying when Arthur replied that maybe it was time to call his family. Not only did he force his smile, but his tone of voice was dull and he instantly steered away from the topic right afterwards when he started talking about Lauri's own family and what they could do for Christmas. Was it really so difficult for him to pick up the phone just to say Merry Christmas? He didn't even have to stay on very long!

"We could buy some games to play when he comes to visit..We need to figure out what we're going to cook for dinner too.."

She shook her head and stomped up to him. "Don't change the subject! I'm being serious! You really need to call them. Whether you don't get along with them or not, they're still your family and Christmas is a holiday where friends and family should get along. Listen pasta eater, you're calling them tomorrow got it? I'll stand right there too to make sure you do." She said, glaring up at him for a few seconds before smiling and walking passed him. "It's either that or I'll devise an evil plan to make you and Ron somehow end up standing under the mistletoe together and you'll be forced to kiss! I'll take a picture of it too! I'll also take back your gift and buy you a moped that you'll never be able to drive and I'll sneak into you room and make Cuddles pee on you for the next three weeks and I'll blast the alarm in your ears every morning for a month."

She stopped after walking about five feet in front of him and slightly turned, giving him a challenging smirk.

"Capisce?"

She then spun back around and slid her hands back into her jacket pockets as she continued on. "Now let's get going carrot-top."

Rain S. Daniels


Rain couldn't have spent a better day. She had secretly made a list of the presents she wanted to give everyone. It was only a matter of finding the proper ones. Of course, she didn't let Ron see the list or what she'd bought. She wanted every present she gave to be a surprise.

For Derek, she bought a few boxes of Christmas cookies, knowing he would enjoy that. For Arthur, she'd asked an assistant at the music store to help her compile a CD of soothing classical music, knowing that it would help soothe his frequent headaches. Jasper had a similar gift, an MP3 with a playlist Rain had compiled with Jasper's favourite songs. She didn't know anything about liquor, but with a little help from the shop assistant, she'd selected a bottle of whiskey for Lauri.

Ron's present was the hardest to get by far. It hadn't been easy shaking Ron off, but she'd finally escaped his watchful eyes. While he was in the toilet, she'd quickly purchased a watch and managed to slip it into her bag before he returned. Rain tried to be discreet about it, not wanting to show Ron his present before it was time to open it. Luckily, she'd already gotten everything wrapped, including the watch, so Ron hadn't a chance of seeing the presents in her bag.

Later, at lunch, Rain sat at the patio of the quaint cafe they'd gone to, staring blissfully at the scene of others bustling around shopping. She caught Ron staring at her and felt her cheeks and the area above her ears heat up. "I honestly can't tell you how great today was, you made it pretty nice too," he commented. Rain nodded. "Yeah. Thanks for a nice afternoon. And lunch." She smiled.

"Of course." He said with his dumb smile still on his face. He dug through his pocket and pulled out his phone as he checked the time, it was getting a little late. If they wanted to do anything else they should probably leave right then. Ron called for the check as he pulled out some money and put it in the booklet. As he looked around he noticed a toy shop next door, in the window was the same bear that Scott had got for Caroline. Ron stood up and gentle took Rain by the hand, "Come on, I got someone I want you to meet." He said as he grabbed some of her bags and pulled her along to the cab as they drove off.

20 minutes later, they arived at some building, it looked like a daycare. Ron smiled and got out, keeping the door open for Rain to get out. "We'll be right back." He told the cabie as they walked inside. In the doors there were little kids running around everywhere, playing and laughing, it actually seemed a rather happy place. Ron walked up to the counter and the woman smiled. "Hello sir! Little Caroline has been so excited, she can't wait to get out of here to go to her new house. She was rather sad after you explained how Scott had passed but thankfully that child doesn't have a big attention span, she just sits in that corner with that bear." "Thank you." Ron said with a slight nod as he walked with Rain to the little girl as she looked up and smiled when seeing Ron. "Ron!" She said as she got up and hugged him. He smiled and got down on a knee so he could hug her back, very lightly. "Hi sweetie, are you doing alright today?" She let go and picked up her bear. "I'm sad, but you told me I have to be strong for Daddy, so I haven't cried that much." Ron gave a worried smile. "That's right sweetie, you're doing great. Hey are you excited about christmas?" Her attitude switched, that ADD kicking in fast. "Uh-huh, Ms. Suzy told me that I'll have a new home by christmas!" "Yup, and I've made sure Santa will get all your presents to your new home. I spoke to him just for you." The little girl got big eyed and smiled as she held the bear close. "I want you to meet someone, this is Rain, Rain this is Caroline, she was the girl from yesterday..." After they talked for a little and Caroline showed Ron 4 dozen things, they finally left. As they got back in the cab and were driving off he wrapped his arm around Rain's back and kissed her on the cheek. "I hoped you like her, she's a sweet little thing. She's taking her dad's death rather well to..." He looked Rain in the eye as they drove on. "Rain...I adopted her, Caroline's my daughter now.."

Rain S. Daniels


Rain allowed herself to be pulled along by Ron, outside and into a cab. "Come on, I got someone I want you to meet." Rain wondered who it might be, but kept quiet. She would see in time.

Some time later, they pulled up outside a pristine white building. Rain thought it looked rather boring from the outside, but on the inside it felt warm and welcoming. Rain could hear the sounds of kids' laughter resonating throughout the place. She smiled. It reminded her of the times when she and Jason were younger. They would play all day, Rain tagging along behind Jason like a shadow.

Rain followed Ron to a corner where a little girl sat hugging a bear. Ron greeted her cheerfully and knelt down to hug her. Rain smiled again, loving how Ron was so careful with the child. After a few sad sentences were exchanged, the girl perked up at Ron's mention of Christmas. Rain couldn't hear all of their conversation, but apparently the girl was excited to have a home, which she would have by Christmas.

"I want you to meet someone, this is Rain. Rain, this is Caroline, she was the girl from yesterday..." "Oh!" Rain spoke involuntarily as she was introduced to the little girl who had suffered the loss caused by Ron's strength. Rain beamed at Caroline, waving and trying to look friendly. After being dragged around some more by Caroline, they finally left. By then, Rain was exhausted, trailing after a kid all day was definitely more exhausting than it sounded, especially when she had to keep bending down to the little girl's eye level.

Later, back inside the cab, Rain tried to stretch out the kinks in her muscles caused from crouching down for too long. Ron seemed nervous, though. Rain turned to him. "Ron, is there something you want to tell me?" The answer was unexpected. "Rain... I adopted her, Caroline's my daughter now..." Rain smiled. "That's great! So the home she was talking about was with us? She's so adorable, I'd love to look after her. She's got a lot of energy, I imagine taking care of her will be rather interesting."

As they headed home, Rain chattered away about Caroline. She genuinely loved the little girl, and was looking forward to giving her a proper home with the Alphas.

Ron smiled back at Rain as she seemed so excited. "Really? You're ok with this? I thought you would freak out, I mean, I'm really happy that you are ok with this, just caught me off guard." His smile grew even bigger as they got inside the cab and Ron wrapped his arm around her shoulder and pulled her in for a slight kiss. "You don't know how much it means to me that you're ok with this, it really means a lot to me that Caroline will have someone that is happy to see her." He sat up looking around outside being cautious as he usually was. "I don't want to tell the others yet, I don't think they'll have anything bad to say, well Jas. I don't know, I don't think she'll say anything when Caroline's around, it's just a lot is changing fast and I don't want her to feel that I don't care about her anymore." Ron looked down to Rain with a smile. "Don't get me wrong, I like these changes. I just don't want to hurt her, we've been through a lot."

When they finally got back to the house, they grabbed their bags and went inside. "I'm gonna go check on the guys, you're ok with the bags?" He asked as he walked toward the kitchen, the smell off pastries in the air. "Ohhhh! I know that smell! You know you better have made two or else I'm going to eat all yo-Oh, um sorry." Ron said as he walked into the living room to see the two in the awkward hug. "Am I inturupting something?"

Rain smiled into the kiss. "Of course! I'm happy that we can give Caroline a home. She's so sweet, I think it'd really brighten up the place, you know?" she said. She understood his meaning about Jasper. "I know, maybe you should spend more time with her. I hope she doesn't feel left out, perhaps I should just blend into the background until she gets used to it."

Finally, they got home. "I'm gonna go check on the guys, you're okay with the bags?" Ron asked. Rain nodded and took the bags from him. "Yeah, don't worry about me. I'll put your stuff inside your room."

As she headed upstairs, she heard Ron call, [b]"I know that smell! You know, you better have made two or else I'm going to eat all y- " Ron stopped suddenly. "You all right in there?" Rain asked, poking her head in to have a look. The first thing she saw was Ron grinning rather awkwardly. She followed his gaze to see Jasper and Derek hugging each other. To tell the truth, they kind of looked like Rain and Ron that morning.

Dropping the bags outside the kitchen, Rain dashed inside and seized Ron by the elbow. "They're fine, come on!" She dragged him out of the kitchen and marched him upstairs, along with the bags.

Ron was drug along with Rain as she pulled him into her room, he sat down on her bed as he went in. He smiled as he leaned back, his hands holding him up. "So, your room huh?" He said with a cocky smile as he looked over at her. He was joking around, he had been in here a thousand times but this was the first time as a couple. He looked over at her with a small chuckle, his mind going back to Jasper. "You know I should really go check on them." He said as his brotherly instincts kicked in but he wanted to invade on it to. Yes he wanted Jasper to be happy and if she had found someone that could be really good, but he wanted to go down there like a little kid and pull her away saying, "Mine!". He understood how she must've felt this morning, they've just been through so much that it was weird to see each other with other people. He was going to get up but he knew that Rain wouldn't let him leave. He just smiled and watched as she did her things around the room. "Do you know that you are so beautiful?" He said with his smile as he looked at her from the bed.

Rain shoved Ron's shoulder playfully. "Don't get any ideas." "You know I should really go check on them." Ron told her. She pressed her lips together, remembering how it'd felt that morning when Arthur walked in on them. "No, you really shouldn't," she told him wisely.

Getting up, she pulled her sweater off, then draped it over her chair. Then she opened the closet and carefully stacked the wrapped presents inside, hiding them from Ron's view so he wouldn't guess what the packages contained.

"Do you know that you are so beautiful?" Ron's words broke into her thoughts. Rain stopped and turned. "No one's ever told me that," she said softly. "Thank you."

He smiled and got up as he walked behind her, wrapping his arms around her waist. "Well you're going to be hearing it a lot more often." He said looking down on her with his big smile. He let go of her and headed for the door, "Don't worry, I'm going to take a shower." He said as he looked back at her, then walking off into the hall. "A shower that's big enough to fit more than one person!" He yelled back with a chuckle as he went into his room.

Once in the shower and under the water, he had to catch his breath. The past two days had been some of the most eventful days in his life. He'd killed a man, him and Rain were together, and now he was going to be a father. Everything was happening so fast, he wiped his face and stared at the wall. "What am I doing?" He thought as he shook it off and started soaping himself up.

After the shower he got dressed in some sweat pants and a black T-shirt as he threw himself onto his bed, looking up at the ceiling. His mind was racing a mile a minute but yet, he was so calm, so very calm. He just laid there, thinking.

Jasper



Jasper sighed, she'd expected some sort of reaction from Derek when she hugged him. She wasn't sure what, an epiphany maybe? Maybe he'd realize that she was right and he'd hug her back and become a regular social butterfly or something, she wasn't sure. Whatever she was expecting, she was thoroughly disappointed.

He just stood there limp and quiet.

She closed her eyes and backed away from him slowly, tugging at her sleeves awkwardly, her lips twitching in a forced smile. "Well, just promise me you'll think about what I said, kay?" She muttered before turning and getting three plates and putting a slice of roll on each. "Talk to ya later."

Carefully, Jasper juggled two plates on one arm and the last on her other while clenching the handles of the forks in her teeth and made her way upstairs to where she knew Ron and Rain would be. She had noticed Ron's brief intrusion during her exchange with Derek, and she knew the couple would be thirsty for details, probably assuming her and Derek's hug was because of something more than just friendly comforting.

"Don't worry, I'm going to take a shower." Jasper heard Ron say to Rain as he stepped out into the hallway. The purple haired girl stepped carefully back so that she was hidden by the wall just beyond view from where he was standing. "A shower that's big enough to fit more than one person!" She scrunched up her nose in disgust, though she wasn't sure what she was disgusted of, surely not Ron's sense of humor with his new girlfriend? When he was in his room, and the sound of the shower was heard, she went into her room and listened to her music, the plates sitting, uneaten next to her on her bed until she heard the sound of him getting out of the shower and dressing.

She waited for a few minutes to guarantee he was finished and fully clothed before grabbing two of the three plates and forks and walked to his room, not bothering to knock before walking inside and closing the door behind her. Silent, she walked over and sat next to her friend on his bed, sticking his plate and fork on his stomach and placing hers on her lap. "How was your excursion with Rain?" Jasper began, separating a piece of the roll with her fork and impaling it before casually sticking it in her mouth.

Ron had started to drift off when he felt the plate lay on his stomach and he jumped a little. He opened his eyes and looked over to her with a smile on his face as he got a bigger one when he saw the roll on his stomach. "Jesus Jas, I'm gonna have to put some damn bells on you." He said with a chuckle as he slipped a bite in his mouth. "Well it was nice, we did some shopping and we had lunch..." He paused as the thought of Caroline came to him. For some reason he was terrified, he was so scared on how Jasper would react. For over half their lives they had been the best of friends, and that was it. There was nothing else, just to friends who might as well have been siblings going day to day. Now things were changing, and fast. So many things had happened in one week and he didn't want her to think that he didn't like things the way they were, that he wasn't satisfied with just Jasper anymore. It was a terrifying, truly terrifying thought. He put the plate down and sat up next to her, smiling at her as they sat smushed together, shoulder to shoulder. "...Jas.." He moved his hand over and held hers in his. "I'm going to have a kid.." He said as he looked up to her. He could see something growing on her and the realization hit him.
"Oh no no no no! I adopted, she's not pregnant, I mean we got powers but...ha....." He told her everything, from seeing the guy running and chasing, what he had stolen, how Ron killed him, the sweet, little angel who almost saw what he did. "I.. did this, and I'm not going to make that poor little girl grow up in a home with no one to love her." He looked up at her, meeting eyes, "And...I'd really like it if she could have a aunt to come too." He said giving her a choice. He didn't think she would say she wanted nothing to do with the kid but he expected it. He expected the worst after all he put Jasper through and would understand if she snapped. All he could do was just to hold her hand to show he cared about her and her opinion and wait for her judgment.

Rain smiled, but did not turn. She heard Ron leave her bedroom. "Don't worry, I'm going to take a shower." She nodded, unsure if he could see it. "Okay!" she yelled back. "A shower that's big enough to fit more than one person!" Rain rolled her eyes, although Ron couldn't have known. "Boys," she muttered under her breath.

She ran her hands through her silken hair, smiling at the thought of Ron. How would Jasper react to this? She would have to make it up to her sometime, in some way, so she didn't feel left out. Besides, Jasper and Derek seemed to have something going on... It would be nice if things were like the old days, Rain decided.

Rain got up and wandered around, looking for Jasper. She even peered inside her room, although she wasn't there. Finally, Rain looked into Ron's room - and found Ron and Jasper together, holding hands. It seemed like she'd interrupted something. "Oh, I'm so sorry! Jasper, I'll be outside your room - so sorry!" she apologised again before pulling her head back and shutting the door. She couldn't help the smile that spread across her face, though. Ron and Jasper - they were just so cute when Ron was trying to be nice.

Rain strolled to Jasper's room and sat down on the cold floor, waiting.

"Jesus Jas, I'm gonna have to put some damn bells on you." Jasper couldn't help but smile as she stuck another piece of roll into her mouth. Even though he wasn't gone long, she always missed Ron's sense of humor when he was away or in a bad mood. "Well it was nice, we did some shopping and we had lunch..." He trailed off making it more than obvious that he had something other than bells and shopping on his mind. Her smile turned down but she stayed quiet, giving Ron time to sort out his thoughts before he opened his mouth again. She was all too used to these conversations, 'well everything's great, but.... Between Ron and her mom, Jasper was always on the end of the but, the one who didn't know what was going on, ever.

The thought made even the sweet roll turn sour in her mouth and she set down the plate on the bed beside her.

In the silence that ensued, Jasper tried to busy her curious brain by absorbing the smell of Ron's body wash, the feeling of his shoulder pressed against her own, and the even sound of his breathing. Ever since they were little, just knowing that Ron was there next to her made her calm and happy. It was always comforting to know that the strongest man in the world was on your side, not only that but he was your best friend, your brother. She often found herself wishing that she could have something that big to offer to him, but what did she have to offer? She couldn't master her own powers, and even if she could, it wouldn't be as amazing as what he had or what any of the others had. Heck, even a simple electrician could do more than she could with electricity. She was no healer, she wasn't even a great cook, all of her recipes had been passed down from her mother's side, she had none of her own, all she could do was replicate. As she looked down as her useless hands, waiting for Ron, Jasper felt an overwhelming sense of worthlessness. She was just a hot tempered girl who was a slow learner. She was selfish, jealous, self-pitying.There was no part of her that Ron could be proud of. Ron was strong, funny, nice, and accepting; the two were complete opposites.

She glared down at her hands as small sparks danced over them, a product of her emotions. However, rather than getting angry at all of it, she felt more like crying, and the feeling only worsened as Ron's hand went over her own. She squeezed it involuntarily, soaking up all the comfort she could from it. She released it for a second and then squeezed it tighter, hoping for that twitch of a muscle or finger that would show her how strong he was again. He may hate his strength, but Jasper always felt comfort and pride in the bruises from his hugs, he was so much more amazing than she was and she loved him for it. And hated herself.

"I'm going to have a kid.."

Silence as she waited for him to correct himself. She knew Ron too much to know when he had his foot in his mouth. She would have smiled if she wasn't in such a bad mood. She listened quietly as Ron told her everything. She wanted to do something but she felt herself going numb from her toes and slowly creeping up. "I.. did this, and I'm not going to make that poor little girl grow up in a home with no one to love her." She stole a glance at her friend and met his eyes for a second before tuning back to their hands. "And...I'd really like it if she could have a aunt to come too." An aunt... She felt so conflicted, she wanted to show her support for her best friend's decision, but her mind was still in so much turmoil and she felt like exploding, but she didn't want to do it in front of him. She didn't want him thinking it was because of his taking in Caroline.

Jasper squeezed his hand a final time and stood up, a humorless chuckle rattling her lungs. "And I thought I'd at least have a boyfriend before I'd be an aunt." She said, a grin resembling a grimace crossing her face. She hoped he wouldn't take it to heart, she was trying to hide her emotions with humor, after all. Jasper turned on her heels and walked out, somewhat robotically, and entered her room, shutting the door and locking it behind her before she realized that she wasn't alone.

Her heart felt like ice and she was more than happy to collapse onto Rain's lap and burst into tears, however childish the action was.

"Jas..." She was already gone, "Damnit.." He said with a sigh as he laid back down on his bed. He looked up to the ceiling and let his mind wonder. Go after her, you can fix this, just go and fix it!, his mind shouted at him as his gaze kept at above. He had always tried fixing things, he was the fixer, going to help, being the leader, but why always? He couldn't just relax at times or let things fix themselves. "No....I can rest now.." He told himself as he gave a slight smile. Was it bad that Jasper was sad or mad at him, yes, terrible, but he was doing something right and he was tired, so very, very tired. He laid his head back on his pillow and let his eyes drift close for a well needed and deserved, mid day nap.

"If you want, I can tell Ron to go easy for a while, until you feel better about it. Look, tell you what, let's go out one of these days, okay? Just the two of us, doing whatever you want. Shopping, maybe a fair, or even the amusement park. Girls' night out. And why wouldn't he be proud of you? You are one of the strongest people I've ever known. Maybe you don't have complete control of your power, but neither do any of us. Why would you want to be perfect - so overrated. You're an amazing person, Jasper."

Jasper sighed, not really believing what Rain was telling her, but she was comforted by her attempt. If Ron was to date anyone, she was glad it was Rain. Suddenly conscious of her wet cheeks, she viciously wiped at them until the coarse fabric of her jacket rubbed them raw and red. "That's two today, Ron's-hic!- gonna pay." She muttered, her threat ruined by her stuffed nose and hiccups. She turned to Rain and shrugged out of her hug, big tough Jasper once more. "Thank you, I'd like that."

"How about I gave you your Christmas present early? Would that cheer you up?" Jasper allowed Rain's warm hug, finding comfort in her kind contact.

"I don't think that's make me feel much better, I like waiting for Christmas to open them." She shrugged, "it just seems more magical that way." Standing up on wobbly legs, Jasper shot a glance to the bed and suddenly remembered the slice of roll she had cut for the other girl. "I'm going to go...apologize to Ron," she gritted her teeth, apologizing wasn't her favorite thing in the world to do. "There's some of the roll I made on the bed for you, if you don't want it, just wrap it up and stick it in the fridge." And with that, the purple haired girl was out.

Ron definitely wasn't the type of person who was hard to find. He'd either follow you and try to help if you were upset, or he'd stay where he was. Obviously in this case he had stayed put. Jasper looked at his sleeping body and was actually slightly annoyed. How could he just doze off when she was upset? She walked right in and sat on him. "Ron Faulk, the next time you fall asleep when I'm in a bad mood, I swear to god I'll beat you to a bloody pulp." She announced into his ear.

Ron woke from his small nap to see the little purple haired girl sitting on top of him. He smiled and kept his eyes closed until she leaned down to whisper in his ear. When she did, he grabbed her, making her flip around until she was laying on top of him and them face to face. Him still making sure to do it lightly but quickly as he felt the framilier shock as he did so many times before. They were face to face as Ron looked up and smiled with a small laugh. "Oh shutup.." he said still smiling. He hugged her and then quickly flipped her over on the empty side next to him as he started to laugh a little. "Sleep, no no no no shhhhhh." He said putting his finger to her lips with a little laugh. He then rolled over putting half his body over her.

Still laughing like they were playing when they were kids he stopped and leaned in, kissing her on the cheek and then pulling her close to him. "I love you Jas, and don't you ever forget that...." He said as he closed his eyes again. He was still really tired from all that had been happening and he did need to get some sleep. Besides, he did good thinking when he was almost asleep and he had a lot to think about now. How would the rest of the house react to Caroline? Did he need to focus more time on his powers? Why hadn't there been a attack that they had to deal with in a long time. But the thing that he was going to think of most of all, the thing that needed most attention, when he leaned over, he ment to kiss Jasper on the lips.

Jasper let Ron flip her around, it was like when they were kids and would wrestle in the middle of the cafe. She loved the attention he was giving her now, but she couldn't help but feel that rolling around on the bed together was a bit inappropriate, especially with Rain in the other room. However, the look on his face kept her from saying anything, he had looked so broken when he killed Caroline's father and then when she walked out on him after he told her about the adoption, she just wanted him to stay happy.

She laid on top of him, a surprised look on her face. "Ron, maybe-"

"Oh shutup.." He laughed, she shut her mouth. He looked so happy, she didn't want to ruin it, she'd already put him through too much emotional pain today, it was nice to see that smile. She let him hug her, then flip her back onto the bed.

"Ron, seriously-" She began, laughing a bit.

"Sleep, no no no no shhhhhh." She chuckled and the two just laid there laughing, it was like old times when life wasn't so damn complicated. He stuck his finger over her lips and she bit it.

"Get your hands out of my face, ass hat!" Jasper joked, smacking him in the chest with the back of her hand.

Then he did something she didn't expect, he rolled halfway on top of her and kissed her on the cheek and hugged her close. She sighed. He said something to her, but she wasn't listening, he sounded really tired and as soon as he had finished speaking his breathing seemed to slow and she realized he had fallen asleep with his arm and leg over top of her. She closed her eyes and ruffled his hair. Sleep sounded good right now...

Rain S. Daniels


Rain waited for about ten minutes inside Jasper's room, waiting. When she was sure that Jasper and Ron had made up, she got up and made her way over. She heard laughter float down the hall. It sounded like Ron's, but maybe Jasper's was mixed in as well. Rain smiled, pausing outside the door for a minute.

She opened it, just in time to see Ron and Jasper asleep, Ron draped over the purple-haired girl. Rain paused, unsure of what was happening before her eyes. On one hand, she trusted Jasper and Ron, they were like siblings. And besides, with everything that happened that morning - she trusted him.

On the other hand, they were in a very intimate position. Bodies intertwined... yep, definitely intimate. With a sudden burst of anger that she couldn't explain, Rain turned on her heel and stormed out of the room, slamming the door behind her. She raced downstairs, and pulling on a coat, went out onto the streets to walk it off.
