Ron sipped at the coffee, nursing it as he stared off into nothing, leting his jumbled head try to put itself together. He looked up a little at the shriek to see rain. She looked so pretty, and with simpathy filled eyes she went to see if he was ok. Her hand touching his shoulder, now usually, Ron would love the sympathetic touch of someone, especially Jasper or Rain. But now that he realized how much his power was out of control, he didn't want to be touched, well he did but he didn't want them to because he was afraid of his strength. What if his muscle twitched or something like that and tore her hand off. He slowly moved out of her hand, turning to look at her after. "Im sorry.... I just don't want any of you to touch me. Im out of control....I might accidentally break your spine some how or..." He stopped and set down at the same seat. He wanted a hug so bad, but he kept telling himself he couldn't, never wanting to hurt rain in his life. "Would you like some coffee?" He asked as he sipped at his own sadly.

Rain S. Daniels


Rain reached out a hand, then thought better of it and pulled away. "Yes, thank you," she replied quietly, wondering what she should do. Obviously Ron didn't want to touch her, but Rain had never been good with words.

Cradling her coffee in her hands, Rain watched Ron over the steam issuing from the cup. The feeling of helplessness she had grew stronger and stronger, until she couldn't stand it gnawing at her any more.

Pushing away her chair, Rain got up and rushed towards Ron, wrapping her arms around him before she even knew what she was doing. "Please don't be like this," she cried. Tears welled up in her eyes and rolled down her cheeks. "Don't touch me anymore if you must, but I can't stand seeing you like this. I don't care if you hurt me, I just want you to remain unhurt! I'd give up my life for you, if only you would be happy and safe!"

There. She'd said it all, confessed her feelings for him. Her only hope was that he wouldn't hate her; she didn't think she could take that.

Ron kept looking off into nothing, his coffee mug sitting inside of his cupped hands. He didn't want to be like this, he didn't want to be all sad and he wanted to be able to touch someone again. He glanced over at Rain when she sat back down, he felt horrible being like this to her. She was the only person, in his whole life, that he had actual relationship feelings for. Now when she came up and tried to comfort him, he pulled away like he couldn't stand to be touched by her.

All of a sudden she was wrapped as far as her little arms could go around him. Pouring her heart out onto his, telling him every word that he wanted to hear for the past few years. It felt so good, it almost made him forget about yesterday, but it didn't, because he was still afraid of hurting her. As she cried on his chest, he brought his right hand up to her face. As gently as he could, he moved her chin up to where she was looking him in the eye. With the same hand, shaky hand, he moved it up and whipped her wet cheek with his thumb. "Don't cry....please...." he attempted to move his arms around to her back and give her a hug. They were so close but they very lightly touched her back, hovering there, him terrified that he would crush her. "I want to touch you Rain..I want to so bad but, I don't want to hurt you... I killed a man with my finger yesterday. What if my hug is to strong and hurts your back..." He paused and look into her hurt eyes with is. "I want to kiss you....I want to be with you Rain, I always have. But if I ever hurt you, I don't..." He just shook his head as he looked down. He wanted this so bad and it was being dangled by a thread, but he couldn't touch it.

Arthur's dark camellia eyes slowly opened and he found himself staring at the barely-lit ceiling of his room. He lay still for about a half hour before finally letting out a sigh and forcing himself out of bed. He had been waiting for the alarm to go off before he got up, but for some reason he felt like it was taking too long. Turning, he noticed the clock on his nightstand showed that it was fifteen minutes pass the time the alarm was supposed to sound, which surprised him quite a bit. Maybe they really did turn it off after Ron asked them again. Arthur narrowed his eyes and moved them onto the carpet flooring for a few moments. He just hoped Ron cam back some time last night and didn't go off and do something stupid.

He spent a little more time getting dressed, putting on a white, v-neck T-shirt with a dark brown suit jacket, keeping it unbuttoned of course, along with a pair of black slacks. After that he brushed his teeth, combed his hair, and slipped on a pair of dark blue socks before splashing his face with some cold water and heading downstairs.

"I don't want to hurt you... I killed a man with my finger yesterday. What if my hug is to strong and hurts your back..." Ron stopped for a moment as he reached the bottom of the stairs as he heard Ron's voice, somewhat relieved and yet he still felt angry with him.

He continued down with his hands stuck in the pockets of his jacket and turned the corner to see Ron's back turned to him with Rain's arms wrapped around him. He hesitated a moment before casually lifting his foot and planting it in the middle of Ron's back, giving him a good kick, clearly interrupting the moment the two were just having. It most likely didn't do anything at all, but it made Arthur feel a little better and Ron would hopefully get the message. "Where the heck were you last night?" He asked, passing him and then moving over the the cabinets above the coffee maker. "You're an idiot, disappearing like that and tossing out your earpiece so we couldn't track you." He continued on, pulling down a box of cinnamon toast cereal and setting it on the counter before grabbing for a bowl and pouring the box. "Did you even think about how that could make you look to the higher-ups?" He opened the refrigerator as he spoke and grabbed the milk, glancing over at him with a piercing gaze as he poured the liquid into his bowl. "And Jasper was worried sick about you."

He twisted the lid back onto the milk and shut it in the refrigerator before straightening up and facing Ron. "Quit acting like you're the only one who has problems, you're being selfish and not to mention childish. How do you think your emotional crash is making the rest of us feel? We're your friends, and the last time I checked friends are supposed to help each other. You're making that a bit difficult." Finally he got himself a spoon and picked up his bowl, ready to take it to the floor below and find himself a table to sit alone. "Now go take a shower or something. I'd rather not share a house with someone who smells like alcohol and sweat." He said, then looking over at Rain and giving her a smile. "Oh sorry, good morning to you, Rain, excuse me." He said before turning to leave, though he stopped as he passed Ron. "I hope you're going to go apologize to Jasper after this."

Rain S. Daniels


"Never. You'll never hurt me. I know it." The tears let up slightly, and Rain managed to gulp out those remaining words. Her hand rubbed small, comforting circles on Ron's back, trying to convey what all the words in the world couldn't possibly say.

Ron jerked forward a little, startling Rain. She glanced up over his shoulder and caught sight of Arthur. Somewhat embarrassed at being caught like that, she pulled backward, quickly wiping her cheeks. She knelt on the floor for a moment while Arthur berated Ron, trying regain her composure.

Finally, Arthur stopped. He smiled at Rain and greeted her. "Good morning," she replied. A slight blush crept up her cheeks, heating her already tear-stained face. Hoping it wasn't too awkward, she smiled tentatively at Ron.

Ron closed his eyes and smiled as Rain pull'd him in close and lightly rubbed on his back. It was so nice, after all these years, finally. He very cautiously put his arms on her back, not wanting to apply much force, if any. As he felt so happy, he realized how big of a dick he was to Jasper yesterday, and how much he probably hurt her. He couldn't remember a time when he had yelled at her, now he felt like shit in this great moment, and it wasn't stopping there. Ron got kicked in the back and while that wasn't very effective to him, he still felt it, which made him tense up a little, which could have hurt Rain. He let go of Rain and turned around, ready to make sure whoever was touching him knew just what he could do. When he saw Arthur, he stopped, still a stern look on his face but nothing else. He listened to the beating he was dishing out onto him as he got his small breakfest together, like he was chatting small talk.

"You think I was being Selfish?! You think I was being SELFISH?!? How dare you call me selfish! Acting like you have problems like this, I killed a innocent man, and then had to tell his six year old daughter that everything was ok, that here daddy was just relaxing, then watch her get hauled off to some home where anyone and there brother could screw her up! You can go screw yourself you little Italian prick because you have no clue what it's like, to go through what I did, and know that you might have just FUCKED EVERYTHING UP for your friends, your family, and someone you love. I have put everything on the line for this team, staying up for days at time, going out on 24 hour patrols by myself so you all could go enjoy yourself for a day and you want to call me selfish!? How about you go try to get with my sister over there, and relax with her by the fire on christmas day, while I go cover for you!"

But he said none of that, his brain sure did but he didn't. After the barrage of insults at him he just nodded a little. "...You're right..I'm sorry, and I will make it up to Jas, I promise.." He looked at Arthur until he left for the downstairs dinning room. Ron turned back to Rain and saw her smile, he gave her one back and hugged her, more like a normal hug this time, and it felt so good. "I'm sorry but I'm going to have to cut this short. I have to go apoligize to someone." He said as he let go of her and walked out into the living room. Ron looked down at the still sleeping Jas and sat down where he had slept. He picked up Booze and put him on the table behind him, not wanting the lizard to get caught in the cross fire of what might happen next. "whew....Jas...Jas wake up." He said with a very light shake to her shoulder.

Ria Riley


"Just tell me when to go", was the statement that made Ria smile and prove that her work was done for now. He also didn't seem to be shaking as much and looked like a fighter again. Excellent! Ria truly knew how to work her magic indeed. Jason seemed ready to go and with his confirmation, she saw Van's smile and then a nod to her after her mental transaction, "I'll be in my office, if you need me", as Van left her and Jason all alone.

Ria weaved her arm into his and pulled him towards her, as their eyes watched Van leave till he disappeared out of sight. "It'll be alright. You get some rest and pump up those dear muscles of yours", tapping on where his muscles were, "We'll be leaving this afternoon, and need you to watch my back as I watch yours", smiling ever so sweetly before letting go. "If you need me, call me", imitating a phone impression with her fingers near her ear before she left him.

Once she was out of sight, she then headed to Van's room, where she opened the door and saw him laying down on his coach. She smiled, as she then silently approached him and knelt beside where he was as she then said silently, "Enjoying yourself I see?", seeing a smile on his face as her hand reached out to his face and partitioned his purple hair so it wasn't in his face. There, that was better! "So...about this afternoon....we going straight to their Headquarters then? or do you require, a distraction to get them out there for you to pop your nose in", smirking.

Jason smiled at Ria, his face a little red, but he was pumped upmfor the mission. Jason gave Ria a lazy wave as he watched her go. He turned on his heals and headed off towards is room. As he got inside, he took out his phone and stared at his sister's number. Its been almost a year. But Ajson knew he as doing the right thing. So he took the phone and dropped on the ground, only to stomp on it, breaking it. He needed to forget his sister if he was going to do this right.

The morning came a little later than usual for some reason, as if the alarm never actually went off. When Lauri realized that she'd slept in an hour pass the time the alarm would've originally gone off, she was pretty surprised. Even though she did always use her power to turn it off the moment it came on, she'd never slept any later than a few minutes afterwards. This time she was never even woken up. She sat at the foot of her bed and spent about twenty minutes brushing through her hair before putting it back up into a piggy tail and tying a dark blue ribbon around it as she went over the events of the day before. She'd gone shopping with Derek and Rain and managed to buy Arhur, Ron, and Jasper each a gift along with buying herself a few new pieces of jewelry. She'd already wrapped up the gifts and slid them under her bed before she ate and went to sleep. As far as she knew Ron still hadn't come home yet, so she hoped he'd be back this morning.

As usual, she went downstairs in her PJ's, a small spaghetti-strapped, light blue top and equally small matching shorts with pink lining. Once she got downstairs, she entered the kitchen and stopped to wave to Rain as she opened the refrigerator. "Good morning!" She said with a smile as she peered into the fridge, only to have her smile instantly vanish. She wasn't exactly planning on drinking in the morning, but that didn't mean she didn't check to make sure her afternoon beverage wasn't there. The entire thing was gone! "W-who....grr" She straightened up, clutching the handle of the refrigerator tightly as she lightly slammed it. Arthur doesn't even like the smell of beer, Rain was under age, Derek doesn't drink, Lauri definitely didn't drink it all. The only two who could've possibly stolen it would be Jasper or Ron, and what better therapy was there after accidentally killing someone? She turned away from Rain without another word and was about to yell for Ron as she left the kitchen when she spotted him in the living room. She stopped abruptly when she figured out he was trying to wake up the sleeping Jasper and her eyes softened. Maybe she'd let things settle a little before killing him.

She turned around and decided to go the opposite direction. She was able to catch a glance of Arthur going downstairs so she followed him and found him eating his breakfast at one of the tables below. Putting on a pouting face, she walked up behind him and threw her arms around his neck, dropping to her knees behind the chair and practically hanging off of him as she pressed her cheek against the left side of his head. "Arrrthuurrrr....Ron stole my beeeeerrr..go buy me some, go buy me some, go buy me soommeee!" She begged playfully, though she was being a little serious as well. "Please, please...I'm too tired..go buy me some!" She continued, slightly shaking her arms.

Jasper


Jasper had awaken when Rain had come down. She listened curiously as her best friend and his long time crush talked and talked and she could practically feel the raging hormones as they slowly became more than friends. She was actually surprised, she hadn't expected them to get together so quickly. She was happy for him, but also a bit jealous of Rain. It wasn't that she liked Ron, they were like siblings, but she did like having Ron's attention. He was the only person that ever seemed to care enough to get to know her, he accepted her flaws and helped her when her dad started drinking and abusing her. He knew more about her than she did, and while she wasn't going to admit it, Jasper wasn't sure she was ready to share him with anyone. She realized how much attention he'd give Rain when they got together, and Jasper was simply afraid of being forgotten, left behind, becoming a third wheel. Her fists clenched unconsciously and small sparks erupted from her fingertips. However, when Arthur entered the room, she quickly attempted to calm down and go limp, in case he noticed her laying there. He seemed preoccupied with yelling at Ron, so she peeked open an eye and listened to what he said. On one hand, Jasper wanted to hop up and defend her friend; but on the other, the shock from last night was gone, replaced by anger towards how he had treated her, and she agreed with most of what Arthur was saying.

Once Arthur left, she heard a quiet exchange between Rain and Ron, they were no doubt hugging and being mushy she thought bitterly. She was jealous and angry that he let Rain hug him when he didn't even let Jasper touch him yesterday. She heard him stand up and begin walking towards the living room and quickly shut her eyes and pretended to be asleep again. She felt Booze get swept off of her head and then Ron's hand on her shoulder, carefully trying to wake her up.

"whew....Jas...Jas wake up."

She stayed quiet for a bit, afraid that she would be too exhausted to argue with him, she wanted to yell at him so badly. However, he persisted and she gave up, grabbing his arm and sent a shock, fueled by her frustration, up his arm. It was one with enough power to knock grown man unconscious, but to Ron it would just hurt a lot.

"It'll take a lot more than that to wake me up, Champ." She muttered irritably, rolling onto her side and glaring at him with her violet eyes. "What do you want?"

"GHNHGGHH...." He muttered as the bolt of lightning strung up his body and he quickly took his hand off Jasper's shoulder, his eyes popping a little as he tried to keep his straight face. "I....fuck...I deserve that." He said as he sat back letting his muscles calm down. He sat their for a minute looking like a kid who lost his parents at a amusment park. Not sure what to do, not sure how to start. "Jas...yesterday, I'm so sorry. I mean, yelling and..." He looked away from her, he couldn't look at her. He loved Jasper, she was equal, maybe more to him than Rain, but if so only because of everything they been through. After he crushed her hand as kids, he swore to himself that he would never, never hurt her ever again, and anyone that hurt her would answer to the strongest man on earth. Yet, he broke it, he yelled at her, he saw the fear in her eyes yesterday and when it happened, he didn't even notice it. Most of the day he while he was out and about was him trying to figure how to face her mostly. He could deal with the others, he thought they would understand where he was coming from. But yelling at Jas, he never thought he would do that in his whole life.

"Jasper...I...I don't know what to say.. There is no excuse for me yesterday. Killing a man or a thousand, I never want to hurt you. I was out there most of yesterday trying to think how I could ever talk to you again, after...hurting you like..." Ron was looking into his lap, trying not to make eye contact. To his team, he was the leader, he was suppose to be up beat, anyone could come to him, he was suppose to be the strongest man there was. But in front of Jasper, when it was just them two, he was that little boy again. He was getting trying to catch his breath as the tears feel down his cheeks, trying with all he could to hold them back for her, to stay strong for her. "..I love you Jasper...I-I-I swore I wouldn't hurt you and I did...p-please don't be mad at me Jas..please." He said still not making eye contact, his shaky arms rose slowly, fully extended towards her, begging for a hug, for him to feel her love, the only thing that got him through everything in his life, his best friend, his sister, his first love, and someone who ment the world to him.

Arthur was satisfied with Ron's answer, though he could tell he wanted to say something more. Either way, at least he admitted the way he reacted yesterday wasn't right, or at least that's what Arthur got out of Ron's answer. He gave Rain a small smile once more before taking his leave and going downstairs with his breakfast. He knew his little lecture wouldn't have the effect he wanted it to, but he had to say something. He decided he would forgive Ron a little bit since the guy agreed to apologize to Jasper, but only just a little. He barely felt any remorse for the words he spoke, something had to be said about Ron's actions and Arthur wasn't finished yet, but he'd cut the guy some slack for now.

He sat in the middle of the room where a table of petrified wood stood with a few chairs around it. Taking a seat, he propped his legs up on the table and held up the bowl. He dipped the spoon in and pulled it up to his mouth, ready to take a bite only to suddenly feel something run into his back. The spoon slipped from his finger and landed in the bowl as he jerked forward slightly from whoever it was who wrapped their arms around him.

"Arrrthuurrrr....Ron stole my beeeeerrr..go buy me some, go buy me some, go buy me soommeee!"

Should've known..

"I'm eating right now." He replied, turning his head a little to look at her, though he couldn't turn it much since her cheek was pressed against his.

"Please, please...I'm too tired..go buy me some!"

She started to shake him a little and he leaned forward, taking his feet of the table and placing them on the floor so he wouldn't fall backwards, though Lauri continued to hang off of him. "Stop begging! You sound like a little kid, aren't you supposed to be the oldest here? And you know I can't drive, do you expect me to walk? Plus, you don't even need to be drinking that stuff, don't you know it damages dendrites in your brain? It's not exactly the healthiest thing to be drinking in the morning, or ever." He was giving her the same lecture every time she mentioned wanting alcohol to him, but maybe he repeated himself so much thinking that perhaps one day it will actually get through to her. Fat chance.

Rain S. Daniels


Rain rose slowly, not trusting her legs to support her after what had just happened with Ron. Still a little unsteady on her feet, she walked upstairs, intending to find Jasper and tell her everything. However, after knocking on Jasper's door, she didn't hear any answer, so she figured Jasper must've gone downstairs without her seeing.

Rain headed downstairs again. Once in the living room, she saw Ron and Jasper together on the couch, talking. Smiling, Rain quietly went over to them. Perching herself on the armrest, she sent a smile Jasper's way. "Morning," she greeted.

Thinking about how to phrase what had just happened to Ron and herself, Rain decided to keep quiet about it for a while, at least until they were alone. She didn't really know how Ron would react, but she knew that Jasper would be happy for her, and keep it a secret until the right time. Jasper was better at stuff like that than Rain was. She would know what to do.

Lauri stared at him with a bored expression on her face as she listened to him give her a reply she's heard too many times to count. As he finished his last sentence she let out a groan and stood up. She walked around the the front of the chair and stood in front of Arthur for a moment, giving him a sad look and then slightly leaning forward and placing her hands on his shoulders. "I'll drive but I don't want to go alone! Pleaaseee?" She begged again, shaking his shoulders a little as she did so before straightening out and placing one hand on her hip.

"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!" She said with an enthusiastic smile before picking up the spoon in Arthurs cereal bowl and taking a large bite of his cinnamon toast crunch and then putting the spoon back into the bowl and walking away. "I'm going to get dressed! Hurry up and eat so we can go!" She called back to him as she hurried up the stairs, disappearing before her friend could argue back. She hurried up to her room, spending about twenty minutes picking out something to wear. In the end she put on a thick, light purple sweater and a hot pink jacket over top along with a thin, tan scarf she simply threw over her shoulders. For bottoms she put on a pair of mint green shorts and thick, black tights with a pair of tan boots, folding the tops over so the cotton would show. Lastly, she replaced the dark blue ribbon around her pony tail with a dark green one before grabbing her bag and finally heading downstairs.

"I....fuck...I deserve that."

She nodded silently and sat up, granting Ron permission to sit down on the couch as he talked to her. She was mad, really mad, but Ron was one of the few people that she had a hard time snapping at. She didn't look at him as he talked, finding the blank screen of the television much more interesting. Jasper knew that if she looked, she'd feel bad for him, she knew exactly what look he'd have on his face, and she was much more content with being mad than sympathetic.

"Jas...yesterday, I'm so sorry. I mean, yelling and..."

She looked over at him for a second and saw that he wasn't looking at her. Angrily, she turned away with fists clenched. He was the strongest man in the world yet he wasn't man enough to even look at her when he was talking?

"Jasper...I...I don't know what to say.. There is no excuse for me yesterday. Killing a man or a thousand, I never want to hurt you. I was out there most of yesterday trying to think how I could ever talk to you again, after...hurting you like..."

Jasper took a deep breath, exhaling her frustration slowly before stealing a peek back at her friend, again. Big mistake. The look on Ron's face was that of a sad puppy and she cringed, fighting her instinct to hug him and forgive him. Ron was just one of those people who you couldn't stay mad at, even if you tried. "Just... be quiet." She said quietly, inhaling and exhaling one more time, admitting defeat. "I shouldn't be mad at you, you went through something terrible and... I was just being..." She looked away, obviously hating the fact that she was really the one in the wrong, "I was being childish. I was just surprised."

"..I love you Jasper...I-I-I swore I wouldn't hurt you and I did...p-please don't be mad at me Jas..please." She was surprised at the strain in Ron's voice and when she looked back to him she saw that Ron, the strongest man on the planet, was crying. Crying and begging for her forgiveness. Shocked, Jasper didn't have time to stop her own tears from falling and she made no haste rushing into her best friend's arms with shoulders shaking.

"D-d-d-damn it, Ron, you're making my em-m-motions go fun-k-ky." She hissed between sniffles. Finally, she sat back and wiped the wet streaks off of his face before going after her own. "T-t-twice in 24 h-hours. T-that's m-m-more than I've c-c-cried in my l-l-life." Playfully, she punched him in the shoulder before kissing Ron on the cheek. "I f-f-forgive you, Ch-champ."

"Morning."

Jasper practically jumped out of her socks. Rain's chipper voice was out of place after the exchange that just happened. "You scared me, dammit-hic!" She growled and hiccuped at the same time, clutching her chest as her heart rate struggled to calm. She whirled on Rain, still a bit jealous. Not only was Rain going to take Ron away from her, but their relationship would also mean that Ron got a date before she did and he would never let her live it down. However, one look at Rain's innocent, sweet face and her anger melted away. Rain was one of those people, too.

"Morning," Jasper repeated running her hands through her ratty hair, suddenly self conscious of the fact that she probably had a bedhead and looked like she had just crawled out from under a rock compared to Rain. "If you guys want time alone, I need to take a shower, anyway." She muttered, beginning to stand up.

Ron tried to stop crying as he felt her embrace, nothing ruined his image like Jasper. She could twist his gut inside and out but a touch from her healed it ten fold. "I-I'm sorry." He said with a smile as he commented on her crying. He opened his eyes as she wipped his face and smiled at her as he took a deep breath in. "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." He said as he held her hand. "And you can help me pick out a second gift for you, to make up for me being an ass." He said as he returned the kiss on the cheek just as Rain walked up. He quickly hid his face as she talked to Jasper, trying his best to make it look like he hadn't been crying.

When Jasper got up to leave he looked up at Rain with a smile. "Hey....come here." He said as he lightly grabbed her hands and sat her next to him on the couch. He kept his smile as he looked deep into her eyes. His hand reached up and brushed a piece of hair back behind her ear. He leaned in very slowly as he closed his eyes and gave her a long, sweet, kiss. He broke it as his lips hanged barley touching hers as he looked back into her eyes. "I..have been wanting to do that, for a very, very long time." He said with a smile, as he sat there, holding her hand in their laps and staring into the most beautiful eyes he'd seen.

Rain S. Daniels


Rain laughed out loud as Jasper whirled on her. "Sorry," she choked, trying to stifle her giggles. She hadn't expected Jasper to be that startled, although her reaction was hilarious. Rain wasn't the kind to play pranks on others and laugh at them, but for some reason, she found Jasper really funny. Rain felt like laughing and kicking her heels like a little child, but held herself back.

Ron turned away to hide his face. Rain looked at him curiously, wondering if something was wrong. He didn't look very agitated, so there probably wasn't too big a problem...

After Jasper left, Rain started forward. Before she could do anything, however, Ron looked up. He smiled brilliantly. "Hey....come here." Grabbing her hands, Ron pulled her down onto the couch. His hand started up towards her face and Rain began to blush a gentle rose pink, anticipating what was to come next. Ron's lips landed on hers, and cliché as it sounded, Rain could feel the sparks between them.

A moment later, Ron pulled away, staring deep into her eyes. "I..have been wanting to do that, for a very, very long time." Rain's blush grew ever deeper, and she broke the stare. "How long?" she asked quietly.

It wasn't that she was displeased or anything, it was just that something had stirred in her by his last sentence. How long had he had feelings for her already? She wanted to know, wanted to realise how long they had loved each other.

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.

Once she was out of sight, she then headed to Van's room, where she opened the door and saw him laying down on his coach. She smiled, as she then silently approached him and knelt beside where he was as she then said silently, "Enjoying yourself I see?", seeing a smile on his face as her hand reached out to his face and partitioned his purple hair so it wasn't in his face. There, that was better! "So...about this afternoon....we going straight to their Headquarters then? or do you require, a distraction to get them out there for you to pop your nose in", smirking.

His eyes turned to Ria as he voice came into his ears. "Enjoying yourself I see?". Van could see that she was knelt down besides the couch, which was occupied by his body. "Hey, you can sit down if you want." he stated in a sort of excitement that he didn't had earlier. His body turn silently so that he was sitting correctly. In any pose that he could get, the couch was always comfortable. If I ever see that guy who make this couch again, I will make sure that he'll have a thanks him. He's a pretty good mortal. his thoughts were soon cut by Ria's asking.

"So...about this afternoon....we going straight to their Headquarters then? or do you require, a distraction to get them out there for you to pop your nose in" He gave some thought before saying something. If we go straight to the headquarter, it will attract the attention on us, but in a bad way. On the other hand... "...we'll distract 'em. Let's make them go out of their fortresses for once, it will be good for both of us and them. I'm pretty sure they'll thanks us later." he said, giving a smirk.

"It is pretty risqué, but if we are stealth enough, they won't even know that we exist." he stated as he closed his eyes, but only to open them in reassurance. "We'll just make enough trouble so that they come out of their hole, then, we'll stalk them to see what they'll do. I'm pretty sure you'll know what to do on your side." He looked into her eyes as he said it. His was dark, while the hint of purple mixed with his dull falling hair. "I'm not underestimating Jason, but I think if he is on the ground with you, he'll be able to grow up about his sister." He stood up and slowly walked to the single window of his room, looking by the humans on their daily routine. "There is only one thing sure, he will have to fight with his sister, and it won't be good for the team if he is cowering here and there." closing the statement, a grin got up on his face, as he admitted: "It will be a fun party, where blood and dead might be invited. We will show to the world that we ain't no joke, and they have nothing on us" he gave a small laugh, and sighed happily afterward. He looked over his desk.

There was a small pair of what looked like bluetooth earpiece. Small enough to fit in Van's headphones. He gave one to Ria, as he said: "We will split. I'll play solo while you and Jason will play in a duet. I know your powers are strong, but as I can't do it, it will be preferable that we keep in contact." he said as he set his, activating his. "If there is interference, make sure that we meet up at north of the Central Park, at around 5 or 6 pm. If I never show up, don't worry, I'll make it. However, if you are in problems, don't hesitate to contact me." He showed a little bright smile, showing that he cares about her health a little bit

"Any questions?"
