Who: Wren, Magneto, Pyro, Sway, & Multiple Man.
When: Friday, April 11, 2008 (Mid-Afternoon)
Where: Xavier's; Rec Room.
What: Wren catches up with Magneto, while Pyro and Sway enjoy a match of foosball.
Status: In Progress.
The golden, mid-afternoon sunlight streamed through the half-curtained windows that seemed to illuminate the entire Rec Room, while a petite woman sat on the couch, who was leaning forward slightly with her elbows resting on her thighs and her fingers pressed together in a contemplative fashion underneath her chin; her eyes were close, but that alone didn't suggest that she was resting them, she was merely thinking. Thinking about everything, from her harrowing rescue to Lucas and his death (and how he died), to her short, but nevertheless delightful conversation with Magneto - and yes, she was fully aware of his identity now.
Once she had been in a better, more well-rested mood, she had decided to ask around who her late night visitor had been until she got a satisfactory answer. It had only taken her one try to get it, and when she had learned who he really was, she was a bit shocked. She had been consorting with a terrorist - but not just any terrorist, it had been one that had been highly publicized for many, many years and of whom she had read a great deal about. Wren probably would've been quicker on the uptake if she hadn't been so bogged down with her own internal struggles.
Nevertheless, Wren had been thoroughly impressed by Magneto's etiquette and decorum. After all, he could have so easily tried to take advantage of her vulnerable state to lobby for her loyalties to his infamous Brotherhood of Mutants; but he hadn't and that gesture alone seemed to have earned him her respect. And if that had been a purely strategic move on his part, it may have all been in vain, as Wren wasn't very keen on choosing either side at the moment. If any of them wanted her to, however, they'd have to present a very strong case and even then, it might not be enough to win her over.
OOC: Feel free to have your character(s) already know Wren, if that would make posting easier. Lol. She's been at the mansion for well over a month now and I'm sure she's met pretty much everyone, even if only in passing. Though, of course, there can be exceptions, such as the more anti-social residents. :P
