Clarissa took off on her morning run, as Jacob sat on his bike, and admired her ass in those tight shorts, as she turned the corner. “Mmmm…Mmmm.”
:: Later ::
The mess hall was chock full of every rank officer and soldier, one of the few places were basically everyone sat together. Clarissa had gotten back from her run, and showered, then changed into her uniform, which clearly showed her rank when it came to her position on the base. Those that passed her, made sure they saluted her, even though rumours had already spread about how she was seen at Club Echo with Corporal Johnson. Grabbing a tray of food, she turned around, only to see Jacob had actually smartened himself up, and was waiting at a table for her.
“Commander Grant….would you do me the honor of joining me for breakfast?” He said with a salute, then pulled out a chair for her as she sat down. Clarissa took her seat, and fiddled with her napkin, casting looks at those that were watching her and Jacob together. She leaned forward and said quietly. “Do I have something on my forehead?” Jacob stared at her intently then laughed. “Just small crease lines, the ones you get when your worried about something. Come on…everyone knows about last night.” Clarissa wanted to hide under the table, until Jacob said. “Yeah, you paid some stripper to get rid of Corporal Johnson’s advances. I think that shit is so cash.” He started laughing and then Clarissa finally found the humor in it and joined him by letting out a soft laugh. She didn’t want to bring up Leon, and his “women”, since that would have spoiled the moment.
Hopefully her explanation would suffice…since it was the truth.
She pursed her lips a little, why was he so infatuated with her?
Sighing, she could make out their figures at the door, watching them, like many of the people in the mess were, when she saw Mack approaching them.
She smiled a little, she hadn’t seen this close friend in a few days and half wanted to just run over there, but because of Leon and Clarissa, she decided against it. She pushed the food around her plate as she continued staring at the scene, wondering what was going on.
((thread move – To the Officer’s bunk building – when its created))
*Reaching them, he set his tray down, and smiled brightly at Anna, that same and normal overly burdening smile that made just about anyone melt as he sat. His eyes then found Roger.* “How goes it gorgeous..” *He looked to Anna and winked* “and gorgeouser?”
He mocked an innocent face. Hey I’m a Sky Runner, it’s like a obligational duty to attend social functions. He laughed. So how’s the World’s Prettiest Sky Runner this morning?Technically Gertie and Anna weren’t Sky Runner’s but Roger insisted that they deserved it, since they pulled their asses outta the frying pan and made sure they got home. So he referred to Anna as a Runner anyway. He tossed a fry in his mouth, seeing that the convo with Mack and Leon was over and he overheard his name. So today he would get to show his stuff to the Dire Wolves, things were on track for him since arriving at Echo it seemed. First the Sky Runners, now he caught the Commander’s eye.
Roger was sitting silent and dumbstruck as Steele spoke. That was the only reaction anybody gave when he spoke to you. He turned finally to Alex, then Anna. Gulping down his coffee. This was real now. He would show Petrelli what he had. He would still need to fulfill a term of service with the Sky Runners but if it all worked out, he’d be starting the Dire Wolf Program in the next few years. Well I guess that’s our queue….Daddy’s calling. Hey Alex, how about we hit the courts after, unless I get killed or something in Sim.. He was only half joking. He and Anna would be training with Mods, so it would be rough. They would go easy on em in comparison to Dire Wolf Training, but it would still be something.
However, she was completely surprised when Steele asked if she was ready to mess with the big boys. She heard him and simply nodded. Watching him walk off, she sat there speechless. She thought she had a flying mission today unless it was later today but, doing this first… She shook it off. Hearing Roger joked, she hit him at his half joking. “Not funny,” she said as she got up. What the hell had Roger got her in to? “Sorry to cut this short, Alex but, we’ve been given orders,” she added, a little disappointed that their chat had been cut short.
