Some Retirement

Post by VoltKimo on Sun Jul 08, 2018 3:21 pm

After a week Zoe was moved back into the mansion. She and Jayden still had some work to do on patching things up but they were definitely on their way to restoring their relationship to its former strength. Jayden was even talking with on site therapist to try and sort out his priorities. He was definitely trying to improve himself in order to prepare for fatherhood. Kai was helpful and providing some tips he wished he knew at the beginning whereas Kamea just laughed at him with a sink or swim mentality.

Logan and Sabella still were getting through their rough patch. Logan was a bit more withdrawn, moreso than usual, spending most of is free time training or going on long bike roads.

Having the kids out of the house was a sad but joyful experience for Andrew. He loved his children dearly but he also loved his wife and their alone time. Which the first night Zoe returned home he immediately 'attacked' Zoe..

In fact the days following the departure Andrew would spend his free time cleaning up the house and finishing up overdue projects. Once he had caught up with everything he would send Alex messages during the day. This eventually lead up to him finding out who her assistants were and finding out when she had meetings so he could send her naughty messages during the day. Evenings he would greet Alex when she got home with a warm drawn bath, or a meal, or one of her favorite movies/tv shows she enjoyed queued up for her to relax. One instance he greeted her wearing just a robe and a rose in his mouth. He was enjoying his extra free time with the retirement and thought making Alex's evenings better gave him some purpose. He wanted ot make his beautiful wife happy and not irritate her more than normal.

So one day he had returned to his old home. THe fact that someone had kidnapped his daughter and held her near his stomping grounds had irritated him greatly. So while Alex worked he would venture back out to the Gray and shake people down for information. While he was resting on the dusty old worn couch in the subways he began to send Alex a message asking how her day was until a sound drew his attention that he wasn't alone. The first three men that stepped out of the shadows gave him a clue that he was getting close to an answer.

The ensuing fight was going well for Andrew until more masked men arrived. His cockiness began to dissipate as he fended off his attackers and it fell even further when one drew a blade and sliced the back of his thigh dropping him to one knee. He was quickly overcome and taken captive.

Andrew wasn't home when Alex arrived and his phone had been discarded underneath the couch...

Alex was both happy and sad to see Zoe leave the house again. As the mother of an expectant mother, she wanted to always be there to help her if she needed it. However, Zoe was an adult and the mansion was very close. There were also many there in the mansion to help take care of Zoe. Alex knew that it would take time for Zoe and Jayden to heal their relationship, but they had each taken the right first steps to doing so. However, having Zoe out of the house meant that the house was once again hers and Andrew's and they took the time to celebrate that the way they had been wanting to for a while.

It was strange for Alex to know that Andrew was retired. While she felt this was the right move for him, she knew it would take time for both of them to become accustomed to it. Andrew, for his part, jumped right into the long to-do list he had for around the house and Alex was pleasantly surprised to come home most nights and find Andrew had done something incredibly nice for her, such as making dinner or planning a relaxing movie night in. She continued to work herself, but was now in more of a managerial position. She knew that Andrew wanted her to stop working, but she wasn't quite ready yet.

That night she got off work after working six hours longer than she should have. She was tired and was looking forward to a nice, relaxing evening at home with Andrew. He normally texted her throughout the day, sometimes sending her rather naughty messages. However, today he had been extremely silent. She wasn't too worried because she figured he just got caught up working on something. She walked into the house and looked around for him.

"Andrew?"

When she received no response she checked around the house, including the garage, but saw no sign of him. She pulled out her phone and sent him a text. He normally would respond very quickly to her texts, but after three hours of no response and it dark outside she became very worried. She sent Zoe a text first to see if she had seen him, but she responded back that she hadn't. She then called James and waited for him to pick up.

James and Mariah's life was going well, they had gotten down the balance down between life and their relationship. He hated that she had to leave on missions but he didnt raise a fuss, or at least tried not to. He was relaxing at home after getting off his part time job sitting in front of the tv when his phone went off. He picked it up thinking it was Mariah but paused seeing it was his mother. "Hey mom." He greeted

Meanwhile Andrew was tied up, gagged unconscious on a plane heading to the far east. an IV drip was in his arm ensuring he would sleep the entire trip back. His assailants had called ahead confirming they retrieved the package and were on their way back.

Mariah and Steve had been called away with a few of the other Avengers to handle a situation in South America. Mariah hated leaving James, and reminded him that he was welcome to join the team whenever he would like, but he continued to refuse. She always tried to stay in touch on her missions, but unfortunately this mission was keeping them all extremely busy and she had not had time to contact him since leaving.

Alex tried not to sound worried when James answered. "Hey James. Have you heard from your father at all today?"

James leaned back on the couch and thought of his dad and slowly shook his head. "Nah the last time we talked was about the whole Jayden Zoe thing." he said. He took a second to look at his phone to see if he had missed any messages and seeing that he hadnt he went back to his mother. "Sorry mom, nothing. Everything ok?" he asked hoping ther wasnt any additional drama going on in the family.

Back at the mansion a bike rider raced up to the mansion and left an envelope up against the door. Hitting the doorbell they rushed back to their bike and raced off. The envelope was marked for the Wolverine. Hearing the doorbell Kamea walked to the door and opened up just in time to see a dustcloud where the biker had ridden off. He looked to the envelope and walked back inside looking over the word. "Wolverine?" He repeated

Alex kept her voice steady, though a feeling of dread was suddenly building up in her heart. Somehow, she knew that something was very wrong. "Yes, I'm sure everything is fine James. He probably just went out with a friend for a drink and hasn't checked his phone. I'll talk to you soon." She hung up and sat there for a moment before getting up. She grabbed her purse and keys and got into her car and drove out towards the mansion.

Meanwhile, Kylie was relaxing with Kimo on the couch watching a movie when she heard the unmistakable sound of a motorcycle coming up the driveway. She heard the doorbell ring just as Kamea was walking by. She didn't hear him speak to anyone and heard the motorcycle pulling away quickly. She picked up the remote and muted the sound when she heard Kamea walk back inside with an envelope. When he said it was for Wolverine she got up. She walked over and looked at the envelope and glanced outside. Logan just happened to be walking downstairs and she looked over at him. "You've got mail."

Logan was on his way down to the training room to work off some extra energy when Kylie caught his attention. He walked over and Kamea handed the envelope over. Logan opened it up and pulled out the cd and turned it over. On one side was kanji lettering that listed his full name. Kylie could tell something was wrong by how Logan was staring intently. A name he hadn't heard in years. He knew that Jasmine was safe with Matthew as they ahd just spoken earlier and Matthe wasn't distressed about anything.

"mind if i pop this in?" He asked looking to Kylie.

Kylie had known Logan for a very long time. The two of them were as close as if he was her father and so she knew that something was very wrong by the way he stared at the cd he pulled out. She immediately began to wonder what was going on. She quickly nodded when he asked if he could put it in the player. "Of course." She decided to stay nearby in case something really was wrong.

Logan and Kylie walked into the main room and Logan inserted the disc. Once the video loaded up it revealed an office room with japanese aesthetics. An older man walked into frame and took a seat behind the desk. "The Wolverine, it has been several years since we've last met." He said.

Logan glared watching the screen. Knowing Kylie was nearby he spoke up, "That's Kenuichio Harada. An old enemy of mine." He said explaining their past rather quickly. "kind of a rival with this particular woman Mariko." He said as memories came back to him. "there was a falling out but i haven't heard from him in some time." Logan said wondering why he suddenly reappeared.

"We have unfinished business to discuss. You will travel to Tokyo immediately and will contact the number contained in this video. If you do not your dear friend will meet with a tragic end." He said with a straight face. Logan blinked and looked to Kylie unsure who he could have. "He fought very bravely and caused quite a bit of damage, i'm afraid my associates weren't gentle with him." Kenuichio advised.

"Who could he have?" logan asked watching the screen trying to think...

Kylie followed Logan back into the living room where Kimo was still sitting on the couch. She stood next to Logan as he put in the disc and blinked when an older Japanese man appeared on the screen sitting behind a desk. She listened as Logan began to explain who the man was. She had never heard Logan talk about him before, but knew that Logan had spent some time in Tokyo at one point in time. As Kenuichio went on to say that he had kidnapped someone he referred to as Logan's "dear friend" Kylie desperately began to think about who that might be.

"I...I don't know. He said friend so it's not Jayden and besides we know he's here because I just saw him an hour ago. Who else do you really care about that's not family?"

James had called up Kamea to see if perhaps Kimo was out with dad. After a brief conversation Kamea thought he'd ask his mom if he'd James' dad lately. After hanging up with James and walked into the living room he looked to Kylie and Logan as they were talking. "Hey mom..sorry to interrupt. Um James was wondering if you'd seen Andrew lately?" Kamea asked finding it odd that James didnt know where he was. He always saw Andrew as more ofa homebody if he wasn't working.

Logan looked to Kamea and then looked to Kylie. He certainly didnt see Andrew as a friend and he was sure the feeling was mutual. He turned and looked to the disc. "You dont think thats related?" He asked

Kylie looked over at her son when he entered the room. When he asked her if she had seen Andrew lately she suddenly got a bad feeling in the pit of her stomach. She hadn't seen Andrew in a few days, although they texted often. They were still extremely close and did still love one another on some level.

"Uh...no I haven't."

She looked back at Logan and could see he was thinking the same thing she was. "I'm suddenly thinking it might be."

Trying to remain calm, she pulled out her cell phone and dialed his cell phone number. It rang and rang until it went to voicemail. At that same moment the front door opened and Alex walked in. She immediately walked into the living room and could see the look of worry on Kylie's face.

"I think something's happened to Andrew."

Kylie looked at her and then at Logan. "Looks like we're taking a trip to Japan."

Logan was a bit conflicted, part of him found it funny that Andrew got nabbed of all people. Someone didn't pay too much attention to who Logan's friends were. But the fact that someone from his past was seeking him out again kept him from expressing that amusement. Not to mention both Kylie and Alex were nearby.

"Yeah i guess so." Logan said. He tried to think of how to approach Sabella with this.

"Oh cool, so when are we going?" Kamea asked overhearing the words trip and Japan. He highly doubted Gwen would even entertain the thought of him leaving. Not to mention the adults were probably going to want them to sit this one out.

Kylie crossed her arms over her chest and looked over at her son. "You're not going anywhere. You're staying here with Gwen and Wes and remaining safe." With that handled she looked back at Logan. "Obviously you can count me in."

"And me," Alex said.

Kylie looked at her husband. "What about you?"

Kamea' shoulder slumped as he definitely saw this as a chance to take in the sights. But he doubted there would be time to do so in any case. Ah well not like Gwen would have approved of me going anyway he thought. Maybe a trip for the three of them was in order.

Logan joined in with the disapointement as both Kylie and Alex were already including themselves in this. He wasn't thrilled to have something in his past come up but even more so with others joining in. "Alright, the more the merrier." He said knowing that at least those two will be able look after themselves.

Kimo had just been relaxing the whole time and looked to Kylie when she asked him if he was going to go. After seeign the video and Andrew being involved he wouldnl't want to miss it. That and he could tease Andrew for getting caught in the first place. "I think i make time." Kimo said with a smile knowing full well how open his schedule was. he had been focusing less on physicality but more on his abilities as a whole for the past year. "i take it we're borrowing the jet?" He asked.

Kylie could sense that Logan wasn't happy about the three of them joining him, but she couldn't just stand by while Andrew's life was in danger. Also, she wanted to be there to look after Logan. It sounded like he and this guy had quite the feud going on and more often than not Logan would let his emotions get the better of him.

"Yes, and I think the sooner we leave the better."

OOC-Is Jayden still going to go as well?

OOC: Yeah, figured the others would hear about the situation

IC:

Kamea headed on up to check on Gwen and Wes and found they were with Sorina and her little one. Kai was in the hallway with Jayden going over a few things with raising a child. "Thought we weren't helping him with that?" Kamea asked. Kai looked to his brother and smiled.

"A few pointers wouldn't hurt." He reasoned. "where were you i thought you were just taking care of some garbage?" Kai asked.

"Well your mother in law is over and from what i stumbled into sounds like your dad might have been grabbed up." Kamea said looking to Jayden. Kai crossed his arms at this thinking it must have been quite the trouble to subdue Andrew.

"wait someone grabbed Andrew? you serious?" Jayden asked.

"No one's heard from him in a while." Kamea pointed out. Jayden rubbed his neck and thought of Zoe.

"I'll be right back." He said wanting to see if she maybe had heard from her father. He went back to their room hoping she was still there to ask her the same.

Zoe was in their room laying on their bed. A very slight bump was now visible through her shirt and everyone in the mansion was excited about the new baby. Zoe kept in close contact with her mother and her OBGYN and the baby appeared to be healthy and growing. Both Zoe and Jayden were feeling rather overwhelmed about having a baby, but they knew they would have all the support they needed and would never be alone in this. They were starting to prepare mentally by reading different books and talking to those that they trusted. Zoe had been reading more about pregnancy, but finally had had to put the book down to keep from freaking out too much and was flipping through the channels on their tv. She looked over at Jayden as he walked in. She got frustrated because nothing was on and turned it off.

"There's nothing to watch. Do you want to just go see a movie?"

Jayden wasn't sure how to bring this up to Zoe, part of him didnt want to bring it up at all. But he feared if she found out he didnt tell it would cause problems in their healing relationship. So there he was. "Hon..um..have you heard from your dad lately?" He asked stepping into the room.

"There might be something going on, i'm just hearing stuff second hand." Jayden said

Zoe frowned when she saw the look on Jayden's face. He appeared concerned about something and she immediately grew worried...particularly when he asked her when the last time she heard from her dad.

"I...I heard from him two days ago, but I haven't heard anything since. What's going on? Is he alright?" she asked becoming more and more upset.

Jayden could tell Zoe was getting upset and that regret was setting in. He didnt want to upset her but that fear of no one telling her her father had been kidnapped won out. "I-i'm sure he's okay but..a few of the adults are going to go out and look for them." He said. Before she could get up offer to leave he assumed he quiped. "I'll go and help out." He said. Andrew had been rather nice to Jayden when he messed up, at least in Jayden's eyes. He didnt seem to want to outright kill him when they spoke last.

"That way you and the baby will be safe and i can give you updates as they come." Jayden offered. Though he didnt really want ot leave her side he felt he owed it to Andrew to help out

Zoe felt utterly helpless and that upset her even more. Her father was out there somewhere and no one knew what was happening to him and she could not go and help because she was pregnant. She looked away, frustrated tears in her eyes until she suddenly heard Jayden offer to go and help. She looked at him and he would see that his offering to go meant a lot to her. She wrapped her arms around him and felt a genuine fear that her father might be hurt...or worse.

"Please...please bring him back...and be careful."

Jayden returned Zoe's hug glad that she wasn't overly upset. He gave a nod promising that he'd get her father back. "Hey i'm mr. careful." He saisd. When that joke bombed he spoke up, "I think you're mom is going to go so there will be someone responsible going. Along with my dad, we'll get your dad back in no time and this will just be a bad memory is all." He reasoned having full confidence they'd get Andrew back in one piece.

"I'll just go and talk to dad and convince him to take me along. Cant be too hard." Jayden said overestimating his chances

Zoe rolled her eyes at Jayden's attempt at a joke. She wasn't in the mood, but was glad to hear that her mother would be going. Honestly, it didn't surprise her. She knew that if anything happened to Jayden, that she would absolutely insist on going.

"You'd be better off just hiding aboard the jet and not giving them any other option."

When she saw him actually considering what she said she quickly added, "I'm joking of course. Don't do that Jayden. Go talk to you father."
