((Gah...I need to post here more often....:P))
Jakob sighed quietly to himself as he stretched out on his bed. His thoughts were all tumbling around in his mind, churning and all of them shouting for his attention. He closed his eyes carefully taking a deep breath as he tried to clear his mind. He ran a hand through his hair as he thought.
Bethany shared her secret with me...Maybe...Maybe I could share mine with her?
He instantly scolded himself for even thinking about it. She as his only friend, and he didn't want to drive her away with his dark secret.
((Safyree your thing is not poping up on this! lol and ya Ikr! Last Dragon))
((Yeah, sorry. :P I'm in so many RPs...Bump!))
Lana smiles at looks over at her brother. "Would you like to do the honors of putting in Halo Reach?"
Axel stands up, taking a breath of distress, and mumbling things under his breath. He walks over to the console and searches through the large selection of games, searching for the requested one.
Xander smiles a little at his friend. "Hey. Come On. It's gonna be fun."
Axel turns to look at Xander with a smile on his face. "I guess it could be fun to kick my sister's a.ss at video games."
Lana laughs a little. "See? That's the spirit!"
Axel returns to his seat with a smile, sitting between Bethany and Xander, pushing his other friend, Adam, to the floor as he only watches as the four of them play the game.
Bethany smiles and she sits a little closer to Axel as he is surprisingly warmness radiating from him she takes her controller and quickly changes it to a Blue Hunter covering instead of it being white. " Ya no kidding! Maybe me and Axel could beater!" Beth smiles " Teams?" and she looks at Axel then at Lana
Jakob laid on his bed a moment longer. Finally, he sighed an sat up. It was time for a walk. Very quietly, he got up and went to his bedroom door. Instead of stepping out of it, he quietly pulled it closed and locked it behind him before silently moving back to his bed and laying own again. As he laid there, he took a slow, deep breath and closed his eyes.
Then, he stepped out of his body.
It wasn't painful. He had grown accustomed to the tugging he felt whenever he 'stepped out'. He pulled away from his body silently. He glanced back at himself as he stood up, his current form dark and wispy. His body was completely still, no breath making his chest rise and fall. It always made him shudder, to be able to look over and see himself lying there as if he was dead. He slowly started to move towards the bedroom door, walking through it instead of opening it.
(( Bump ))
((wooooo Ironyyyyyy haha I wish Safyre would rellpppyyyyyyyy :D))
((Me too. :D I'm excited for him to reveal his power))
Once he was out of the house, Jakob started to run. He practically flew over the pavement, moving faster than he had ever been able to in his body. It made him smile as he whipped past a jogger walking his dog. The jogger didn't see him or feel him as he rushed past, even though the dog started to bark loudly at him. Almost no one could see him now as he ran.
It was exhilarating to feel so free, so light. He rode on the wind with a silent, joyful smile. There was no gasping for breath, no throat squeezing up an making him feel dizzy. His heart didn't jolt or burn with tiredness, the way it did when he tried to run in his body. No tired muscles, no inhaler.
He was free.
Lana looks over at Bethany and smiles. "I guess we could mix things up. Boys vs. Girls is just so cliche."
Axel looks at his sister. "So what do you suggest then?"
Lana bites her lip in thought. "Well, I really don't wanna play with you. So...You and Beth can be on one team and..." She blushes slightly.
Xavier finishes her sentence for her. "Lana and I on the other." He gives Lana a crooked grin. "We can beat em. I know we can."
Lana smiles at him in return and nods her head in agreement.
Axel looks at Bethany. "What do you say? Think we can beat em?"
Bethany looks at Axel and smiles with an evil grin "Heck ya we can beatm!" she looks at Lana and sticks out her tounge at her in a mock. " I Know we can beatm but it will probaly be me doing all the killing" She grins big. hmmm should I tell try to invite Jake? I don't think he knows where we live maybe he does? Dang it's kind of sad I like him so much after what we just had today I guess I'll talk to him on Monday then.. She kind of frowns for a little bit but then looks at the game.
Jakob was starting to run through buildings now, passing through walls as fast as the wind. He passed people, completely unaware of his presence. A family watching a movie, a couple arguing, an old lady feeing his cats. None of them could see him, an he kept running. He passed a group of teens starting to play video games. His form was starting to fade an flicker from being so far away from his body, so he slowed a little. Enough that he was able to make out the people's faces.
(( Bump! ^-^ ))
Lana smiles and looks ahead, suddenly aware of a presence in the room, feeling it in her skin. She drums her fingers on the controler in her hands and looks over at Xander. "I think we can take em."
Xander nods his head. "Psh. There is no doubt in my mind."
Lana keeps smiling, suddenly focusing on the presence in the room and turning her head. She sees what she was sensing and she tilts her head confused.
Axel looks at his sister a little concerned, aware of the presence as well, but not being bothered like his sister. "You okay Lana?"
Lana looks at him with a smile on her face. She nods her head. "Yea. I'm alright!" She looks at the TV again.
Axel shrugs his shoulders and starts the game at last.
Beth smiles and punches Lana in the arm challenging her " Okkkk but be warned I'm pretty sure Imma beat you butt with this devil!" she elbows Axel in the side softly
Axel chuckles and looks at her, waiting for the game to load. He looks at his sister. "I'm not going to go easy on my sister or..." He looks at Xander. "...or my best friend."
Xander and Lana talk at the same time. "Ditto." They both laugh.
Lana looks down a little and blushes from Xander's laughing. She looks back up and at the television.
Bethany shudders as it feels cold in the room " Ughhhhh I call dibs on making my character first!!"
Axel laughs a little again. "Your dibs is granted." He sets his controller on his lap and sits back in his seat, waiting for Bethany to make her character.
Lana looks at the controller in her hands without interest, thinking of the presence that she still feels, although it has moves further to the right, now being more visible to her, than just turning and looking, she sees him from the corner of her eye.
