A Place of His Own

Post by Admin on Thu Jan 10, 2019 8:52 am

Kylie had been working all day on it. Thankfully, Hank had agreed to keep Andrew occupied for most of the day and away from his space down in the sub-basement. Jade had helped Kylie move all of Andrew's personal stuff upstairs to the room he would be sharing with Kimo. Andrew had been reluctant to leave the storage room in the sub-basement, but Kylie knew he couldn't continue to stay down there. After their relationship changed to something more, Andrew had officially decided to stay at the mansion. Kylie knew that Andrew had never had a space of his own (neither had she before coming here). He would be sharing the space with a roommate, Kimo, who was still back in Hawaii, so Kylie decided now was the perfect time to act. Each roommate got half of the room to themselves. Each person got a full sized bed (complete with bedding and pillows), bedside table, and their own dresser. After that, it was up to each person to decorate and personalize their side. Kylie hoped that by making the space personal to him that he would be more willing to stay there. This would be a big step for him, but she planned on being there with him and making sure he was completely comfortable with it.

Jade had helped Kylie bring all of Andrew's stuff upstairs, but after that she left Kylie alone to personalize the space for Andrew. Andrew didn't like other people touching his things and so they both agreed that Kylie should be the only person to actually put the items away. Kylie put his clothes away in the dresser, along with some new shirts she had gone out and gotten him. She knew who his favorite bands were and had gotten a few band posters, which she put up around his part of the wall. She put the picture of him and Mason on his bedside table, and then put a framed picture of the two of them, on his dresser. She put a few more of his personal items out and around and the items that Andrew had kept, but that meant less to him, in the closet.

With the room finally ready, Kylie went downstairs to retrieve Andrew from Hank. She made Andrew put on a blindfold and then led him upstairs. Thankfully, the elevator had a stop on each floor of the mansion and she was able to take him straight up to the floor on which would be his new room. Andrew would be able to sense both excitement and nervousness from Kylie. She had no idea how he was going to react. If he got upset and angry then that could ruin the trust she had been able to build up with him. She just hoped he was going to like what she had done. She carefully led him down the hall to his room. The guys were all kept together on one wing of the mansion, and the girls on another to keep them separate. During the day, guys and girls could go into each other's rooms (with the doors kept open), but at night there were very strict rules to be followed.

Kylie stopped outside his room and then opened the door. She led him in and then positioned him facing his side of the room. "Ok, ready? 1...2...3!" She pulled off his blindfold and then stepped back and anxiously waited for his reaction.

Andrew had made no mention or made it clear that he wanted to leave the subbasement. With Kylie he felt staying at the mansion was in his best interest. Things were going fairly well though his extra studying became less about reading and more talking and kissing. Hank was still thinking of ways to help Andrew cope with his phobia of open spaces and other fears. It was rare for him to venture up onto the main floor even for food. Watching some surveillance Hank discovered he only willingly went upstairs at night and he deduced this was a learned behavior. He was a minor and wandering the streets during the day would cause him trouble. So when the idea of giving him a room to share with Kimo came up Hank saw an oppurtunity.

So he kept Andrew occupied with lessons on music focusing on the records that he had. One he found that Andrew had an inkling for playing an instrument keeping him distracted was fairly easy. When Kylie got hold of Andrew he was apprehensive about a blindfold and how Kylie seemed to be acting. Getting on the elevator he knew they were going upstairs and his heart began to race. He heard the elevataor dinged and his chest felt cold. When the door sopened up and Kylie began to lead him out he was a bit reluctant to leave but followed.

He swallowed trusting Kylie until the point where she removed the blindfold. He was in another room and his belongings were placed about. He took notice of the band posters and the pictures on the bedside and saw care was put into this. He was quiet as he processed what had been done. He wasn't upset by any means he just wasn't sure about the new location. There was a window after all...and another bed.

"Um..so i'm living up here now?" He asked looking to Kylie. "I like the posters thank you Kylie." Andrew said. He just wished his heart would settle down, he kept close to the wall. On the positive side he was closer to Kylie this way but now they couldn't use the excuse of a storm to hang out. "if you dont mind the question why the second bed?"

Kylie could tell that Andrew was nervous and unsure, but he didn't seem mad at least. She knew that his was going to be a challenge for him, but she was confident he could do it. She stood back and watched as he looked around at what she had done and thankfully he seemed to like it. She had taken a big risk in bringing his stuff up here and touching it without his permission, but he seemed to trust her.

"The other bed belongs to Kimo, the Hawaiian guy you zapped that one time. He'll be back in a few weeks. Until then you will have the room to yourself to get settled in. I know this is going to be a big change for you Andrew, but this will be good for you. The space down in the sub-basement will still be available to you to go and hang out if you need to and obviously my storm room is still down there. And Kimo is a great guy. I think he'll make a good roommate for you. Is this...ok for you?"

Andrew kept telling himself that he'd adjust to this. He eventually adjusted to the subbasement and he'd adjust to this. He looked to Kylie when she brought up his roommate, "Wait..the perpetual sunshine guy??" He asked. The guy was way too happy. He thought on what Kylie said about this being good for him. Andrew was a homebody and rarely left his room anyway and Kimo seemed to be the kind of guy who was overly active. Maybe this wouldn't be so bad.

"I..i think so." Andrew said taking a breath. He still looked unnerved and other thoughts started to come to mind. He was upstairs where Logan was..

"OH did um...whats her name Jade? she hasn't said anything to anyone right?" he asked looking to Kylie. They weren't too active but she had walked into that room just at the wrong time.

Kylie was glad that Andrew was starting to come around to the idea. She wanted him to at least try it. If he really wasn't comfortable then she would come up with something else. She looked over at Andrew when he asked about Jade. A few days ago Kylie had been down in the sub-basement with Andrew and Jade had walked in on them kissing rather heavily on his bed. Jade had quickly left, but Kylie had talked to her later on and asked her not to say anything...especially not to Logan.

"No, she hasn't said anything. I think we can trust her."

She walked over and slipped her arms around his waist and kissed him.

OOC-I started a "Character Information" section specifically for this story line. I added pictures and basic information for Sabella, Kylie, Jade, and Eden. Please feel free to add information and pics for Andrew, Kimo, and whoever else you would like to.

OOC: I saw that! Will do!

IC:

Andrew was still trying to process everything. But he trusted Kylie and if she said they could trust Jade than he would take her word for it. At least she got him on the side of the room away from the window. Guess we'll have to be social now he thought. Lost in his own thoughts he didn't notice Kylie move her arms around his waist.

He looked to her and his thoughts melted away when she kissed him. With the few kissing sessions Kylie could tell Andrew became very docile with affection. Andrew returned her kiss his hand moving up gently brushing her neck

OOC-I mostly had to do it to keep track of everyone's powers when I realized that I had given both Sabella and Jade the same powers on this board. I ultimately decided to change Sabella's.

IC-For the rest of the afternoon they continued to fix up his side of the room a little more to his liking (in between a few kissing sessions). They listened to some music, talked, ate pizza, and did some more studying. Hank came up to check on everything and was pleased to see that Andrew was settling in. Kylie requested to stay with Andrew a little past curfew just to make sure he was alright and Hank agreed. They talked some more and before too long they both got sleepy. Kylie laid down on his bed and closed her eyes, telling herself that it would just be for a minute and then she would get up and go to her room...

OOC: Oh that'll happen lol. To be honest i had forgotten what Sabella's powers were

IC:

As time went on the less stressed Andrew became. He had found a few shirts that Kylie got him and he was rather touched. it went without saying most of his clothes had to be replaced but Hank did his best to clean up what he had. He truly appreciated what Kylie had done for him and wasn't sure what she saw in him. Turning to Kylie to ask something he noticed she had laid down and her eyes were closed. He saw the time and figured some shut eye would be fine. Thinking nothing of it he simply laid down next to her. His eyes grew heavy and he drifted away with nothing but good thoughts...

Logan had down the rounds making sure everyone was in their quarters for curfew. He figured he'd stop by Kylie's room to see how she was doing. He had heard she had a pretty busy that day and thought tomorrow they could something together. Knocking on her door and finding her room empty caused a mild panic to build up. Now there was only a few places she could go in the mansion so he immediately headed towards the stairs. Before he got there his nostrils picked up her scent leading to the boys quarters...

He began to follow stalking down the halls finding the room that Kylie was. He pushed open the door to find Andrew and Kylie spooning on the bed..

OOC: I had an idea that Xavier hears the shouting and uses his powers to 'freeze' Logan and Andrew in place

Kylie was perfectly content lying with Andrew on his bed. They were both lying above the covers and fully clothed (apart from their shoes). The radio was still on, but the music turned down. Kylie didn't realize that Andrew was laying so close behind her and that his arm was around her waist. She shifted and smiled a little in his sleep from the comforting feeling she had.

Suddenly, she heard a floorboard creak and it caused her eyes to open. At first she didn't see Logan. She instead looked over at Andrew and smiled a little and then started to get up. Then, as she sat up she spotted him standing in the doorway. A mild panic started to come over her.

"Logan...I can explain..."

OOC: Man this brings back memories. was still living at home and my sister had this happen, just as innocent apparently, dad yelled so loud he woke me and my brother up in the basement.

IC:

Logan was seeing a bit of red, yes they were clothed but man that did not help his mood. "Up...lets go." He said. Andrew began to stir and he lifted his head. He knew Kylie was near but in his current state Logans form wasn't familiar. He rubbed his head and got up quickly his flight or fight taking over.

Logan watched Andrew straighten up and he wanted to just pop his claws and just skewer him. Andrew's right hand sparked waking himself up. "Oh..ohhhhh." Andrew said his vision clearing. "Right locked door next time.." he said not liking having people sneak in on him. He was glad he had the foresight to not blast him.

This statement drew Logan's ire about a locked door. "Alright you punk.." he said popping his claws. Andrew saw this and got ready to fight. For a split second it looked like they were about to go to blows but nothing happened. The electricity stopped flowing over Andrews hand and both guys just stood there not moving an inch. Trapped in their minds Andrew and Logan tried desperately to move

The commotion from Andrews room drew the attention of Xavier. It took him just a moment to seize the boys bodies and to send a message to Hank and Sabella to intervene seeing as they would get their before him.

OOC-Oops...that wouldn't have been good

IC-Kylie got up, not wanting to cause trouble for Andrew, but was ready to defend themselves to Logan. "Nothing happened," she told him as Andrew began to wake up. She had been hoping to calm Logan down, but Andrew's statement about locking the door next time caused her to look over at him with a "seriously?" look. Then, to her horror, she saw Logan's claws pop and looking over at Andrew she saw him get up and prepare himself to fight. She literally jumped in the middle of them and yelled at them to stop when she noticed neither of them were moving...at all. They weren't even blinking.

Sabella heard the commotion and rushed upstairs with Hank. From Xavier they learned the commotion was coming from Andrew's new room. She sprinted down there and saw Logan, Kylie, and Andrew and could only deduce what had happened. Logan was far too protective of that girl. Sabella pulled Kylie out of the way so she wouldn't accidentally get hurt and then she and Hank put themselves between the two men.

Andrew hadn't meant locking the door in that way, it was more as a security thing with him. Hank faced Andrew leaving Sabella with Logan. As Xavier eventually made his way to the room he finally released the pair. Being aware of what was going on but not able to move Logan withdrew his claw knowing he was in trouble. Andrew just ran into Hank and fell to the ground, Hank just shook his head and helped the young man up.


"Alright, now emotions are a little high at the moment. i trust we can be civil about this." Xavier said having no qualms about freezing them again. Logan growled but backed down his eyes glaring daggers at Andrew. "Now i'm certain there is an explanation, but given the time i suggest we all retire to our rooms for the evening and discuss this in the morning." Xavier suggested.

Sabella was prepared to stand between Logan and Andrew all night if she needed to, but she sensed Logan finally back down (at least for the moment). She looked over at Professor Xavier and nodded in agreement when he suggested discussing this in the morning.

"Come on Kylie. I will walk with you back down to your room."

Kylie grabbed her shoes and glanced back at Andrew, giving him an apologetic look, before walking out with Sabella.

OOC: Will continue to work on the character profile

IC:

Andrew watched Kylie leave but didnt blame her, he just assumed Logan was just angry because she was near him again. Xavier escorted Logan out and Hank spoke with Andrew to make sure nothing happened. Andrew informed Hank all that occurred minus the kissing. That he just laid down next to Kylie to stay warm and fell asleep.

Not looking forward to the next morning Andrew just settled in to bed. He had difficulties sleeping not quite adjusting to the new room and the events earlier. He eventually grabbed the pillow and blanket and slept under the bed feeling a bit more secure

OOC: Have plans for Kimo and Andrew being good roommates

Sabella made sure Kylie was alright and talked to her for a few minutes before she headed out of her room and back down the hallway to Logan's room. She walked in and closed the door behind her. She could tell he was still upset and knew she would need to approach this subject carefully.

"Logan, you know nothing happened between Kylie and Andrew, right?"

OOC-Yeah, I think Kimo will be good for Andrew

Logan was pacing trying to calm himself, he just didn't know how to deal with this development. Kylie was her own person yes but why that guy? Up until a few days ago it seemed like he was going to leave the mansion and everyone behind. Pot calling the kettle black but at least Logan had some loyalty to people. He heard Sabella come in and point out that nothing had happened. They were clothed after all, "Yeah this time." Logan said. He didnt want Kylie to be stuck in a relationship with someone that had no future

OOC: Ya know i dont think in the original group neither of them ever got so mad that they tried to make Kylie choose between them. Dont think i'm going to do that in this one because that kind of a choice is just painful

OOC-Yeah, that wouldn't put Kylie in a good spot. I don't think she would like that. Both Andrew and Logan mean a lot to her.

IC-Sabella walked over and sat down on his bed and watched him. "Andrew isn't such a bad guy. He had a rough start here, but who can blame him after what happened. Kylie likes him. She's 18 and up to now hasn't had any kind of a normal life. Andrew gives her that sense of normalcy."

"I know she's an adult but why that kid? He can hardly read and he's damn near feral and thats coming from me." Logan said. "And whos to say he's going to stick around. he'll end up hurting her." He said.

Sabella looked at Logan. "He can hardly read because he's been living down in an abandoned subway for years. Kylie is behind herself in her education due to living on the streets and then being locked up by Dr. Howe in that facility. Did you ever consider that maybe the reason she's connected with Andrew is because they both understand what it's like living on the street?"

Logan growled knowing that the connection between Kylie and Andrew as a good starting point but she could do some much better. He still worried that he was going to break her heart, run off or worse do all that plus get her pregnant. "I just dont want her to get hurt and the kid is such a damn risk." he said voicing his concerns.

"This time we caught them sleeping in the same bed, what's going to happen next week." Logan said. He had lost Kylie for some time and he wasnt going to admit that he wasn't ready to let go. He saw her as a daughter and they already lost time due to Dr Howe, now she was moving on with him..

Sabella had known Logan for a while and had never seen him get like this with anyone but Kylie. Logan was more of a lone wolf sort, but there was something about this girl that made Logan fiercely protective of her. She understood that he didn't want her to get hurt, but he was going to need to back off a little, otherwise Kylie might start pulling away from him.

"You know when I was talking to Kylie tonight she was pretty upset. She doesn't want to hurt you Logan, but she likes Andrew. You have a great amount of influence over her and because of that I suggest that you be careful in what you say about Andrew. It's up to you of course if you want to tell her how you really feel about him, but keep in mind that right now she is really happy."
