Today had returned a semblance of normalcy to the school after the uneasy action of yesterday. At least, as normal as you could get when everyone around you had some sort of awesome, potentially deadly, superhuman ability. Classes droned on in the usual fashion, Math, Science, history, and that one class on mutation with the huge blue furred cat in a tweed suit and a bowtie. Tanner was still amused by that. Even so, Professor Mccoy was very disarming and humorous. But now the sun was coming down and the faculty had asked for a short meeting in front of the school for all the new students. Tannner crowded in with all the other students standing in the courtyard and listened to the announcement.
Emma Frost was once again giving a speech and looking far too sexy to be the head of a prestigious academy. Tanner chewed his lip in thought of her spiel. It was day two at the academy for most of the people here, and they were already offering the possibility of joining the X-Men, as junior members of course. She made it almost sound like an after school sports club, with the exception of combat training. Tanner smiled, scratching his nose. He lived to do, and had already made his decision on whether or not to sign up. He'd seen the videos, the X-Men got into a lot of dangerous situations, but how bad could it really be? 'This is just school after all,' He thought to himself as Scott Summers asked if there were any questions, 'they won't be putting us in life threatening situations, right?'
Jaime wrote:“I have a question… you said that the X-men’s purpose is to keep the peace right? Will our training allow us to do that without using excessive violence like what I saw yesterday?”
Tanner craned his neck to see Jaime ask his question through the crowd. After the fight behind the school, Tanner had made himself scarce, exploring the grounds and returning to his room before curfew. There, he had met Jaime, his roommate. They hadn't chatted much before bed, and Tanner was still figuring him out. Tanner didn't like to fight much either. 'Maybe He's going to join up too.' Thought Tanner, giving a little smirk, his hands in his pockets.
