X-MEN CENTER 3RD
The long hall leads to the female students' dorms. The southern edge of the hall is home to a pair of elevators leading to the various floors. To the left is the X-Men Kitchen 3rd, which is a frequent destination to many students, along with the X-Men West 3rd hall, where the dorms from 301 to 308 are held. On the right side is the X-Men Lounge, where the students can relax and hang out, and the X-Men East 3rd, where the remaining dorms 309 to 316 can be found. At the top of the hall is a set of stairs leading down to the X-Men Center 2nd and male dorms as well as a set of stairs leading up to the mansion roof.

Coming down the stairs from the roof, Rook's
steps were silent despite his speed of descent. He paused at the bottom stair to look upwards before stepping down one last time and waiting to the side for Gavin to appear.
It was only a second before the clicking of Gavin's
talons could be heard. Skipping every other stair, the bird-boy was quickly beside Rook, giving him a smile like nothing happened. "Sooooo, pretzels and lemonade for you, right?"
stepped into the center hall and paused when she saw the boys. "Oh... hey Rook." She said after a moments hesitation, a little caught off guard by the appearence of other people when she'd thought most people were in bed already. "Hi Gavin." She then added, realizing she'd left the feathered boy out in her initial greeting. Not sure what else to say, she offered them a nervous smile and awkward wave before heading into the X-Men Kitchen 3rd
Watching as Nadine passed by, Rook
didn't even wave. He was in an ill temper and nothing at the moment was going to help. Gavin's words sank in after a moment and he nodded, choosing to stare sullenly at the floor rather than look at anyone else. The sudden anger at the girl upstairs was unexpected and Rook wasn't sure what to do with it all. He didn't really get
angry. That was more a Gavin thing.
absently waved a hand at Nadine when a thought crossed his mind. People. In the kitchen. Probably not a good idea. Maybe walking down the stairs to the cafeteria instead would help Rook cool down? "So what's your deal with chocolate, anyways?" The feathered teen turned towards the stairs to X-Men Center 2nd
and walked in his usual confident stride--except this time he peeked over his shoulder to make sure Rook was following instead of just assuming he would.
usually took the stairs, so unsurprisingly he went right for them. He secretly wanted to get to his room and raid his stash of non-dairy goodies he had hidden in his room. Gavin might not follow though. "I am allergic to milk," he said quietly, his accent becoming a little more pronounced since he wasn't focusing on enunciating like he usually did. Rook started down the stairs to X-Men Center 2nd
without any more words.
"Really? Huh..." Gavin
continued to X-Men Center 2nd
, mentally crossing off dairy items from the list of goodies he wanted to push on
introduce Rook to.
Leaving the hall that led to her room, Flame
paused before she headed down the stairs, unsure if Shana would already be at Xavier's office working, or doing her own thing and was else where on the grounds, or out at town. Short of calling on Danger, and rather leaving that until needed, she headed down the stairs to X-Men Center 2nd
came out of the kitchen and headed for the elevator. She hit the call button, and when it arrived she lounged at the doorway with her foot against the gap where the doors slid out to prevent them from closing while she waited on the others.
'You maybe wanna take a dip in the lake?' Valerie
asked as she slipped out of the doorway from the X-Men Kitchen 3rd
, and after she located Faro by the elevators. Flashing her friend a smile, she sidled-up to brunette, her eyebrows raised questioningly as she awaited a response.
zipped into the elevator with surprising speed in his chair. Thinking the question was for him Mark cast his gaze away for a bit to hide the disgust of the though of all the bacteria and microbes that could bne in that lake. "Im not the best swimmer, though my exo suit arms and legs are water proof."
Hurrying behind Mark so that she didn't keep Faro and Valerie waiting, Nadine
scooted into the elevator just in time to catch their conversation about swimming in the lake. "I like swimming." She added quietly. Which was actually an understatement. Nadine loved to swim, she had been one of the best swimmers on her team and would still be doing it if not for the sudden manifestation of her powers while she was in the pool at school.
Faro was about to answer Valerie when the others came through. She couldn't help but smile at the mix-up. When the others were done she turned to Val. "I think I've had enough of swimming today," she said quietly. "But if it gets quieter I might join you for a dip." She stepped into the lift with the other two and waited for Valerie to join them.
Valerie cast Nadine a bright smile as she commented about liking swimming, and she did the same to Mark when he mentioned the constraints of his exo-something-or-other. 'Well, maybe we can pl--uhhh,' she started to say, but playing games ended poorly last time. 'Whatever you want to do!' the blonde then chirped to Faro, changing the topic suddenly and awkwardly, hoping to keep the other young woman's spirits up, although she did add within reason as a mental side-note. Slipping in with the others, Val jabbed at the down button, and the elevator descended to the X-Men Center 1st.
As the lift took them to X-Men Center 1st, Faro gave Val an appreciative smile.
