The current, remaining X-men -- Jean Grey, Scott Summers, Hank McCoy, and Raven Darkholme -- left the others in the rec room and headed to the kitchen, moving quickly. It was looking bad.
Hank began pacing, seemingly annoyed. Raven sauntered in after him, seemingly unconcerned as she pushed some cereal boxes over and hopped up on the counter, looking at her nails before leaning forward, gripping the edge of the counter to keep balance. Jean looked to Scott, who leaned against the fridge, rubbing his forehead. Jean looked to her colleagues, and sighed.
"We should find Xavier." Jean stated after a moment, breaking the silence.
Hank groaned. "Xavier, we don't need him. What we need is to fix this mess."
"Hank, please." Jean said to her old friend, who she felt like she didn't know anymore since his return from where he disappeared to.
"Sorry, Jean. But as much as I'd like to go looking for Xavier, we have to deal with things around here. Shit, look at this place." His fists rested on his hips, his lower jaw jutted forward as he shook his head. "First, the electricity to part of the place is cut off? Do you know what the fuck that could mean if the med labs were part of that? And I can pretty much bet it was. What would a playboy slacker need from the med labs?"
[[Hank.]] Jean stated harshly, telepathically speaking to Hank and Hank alone. Raven and Scott could see her staring intently at him, her eyes narrowed slightly. [[Not all of us were gone for as long as you were. Lose the attitude. There's enough auxiliary power to keep the med labs going for a year. We were only gone six months.]]
Raven bounced her leg that was crossed over the other, watching Hank and Jean. "Hank, Jean, do you have something you want to share with the class?"
"Can it, Raven." Hank said shortly.
"No." Jean's eyes are still on Hank. [[We will discuss this later.]]
[[Whatever.]] Hank rolled his eyes and took a few steps to the other side of the kitchen, shaking his head. As far as he was concerned, he was done with this conversation.
"First things first. We need to get the rest of the power on," Scott said decisively, stepping away from the fridge. He glanced from Jean to Hank. Jean was now standing back, her arms crossed tightly in front of her chest. "We need to get these kids rooms. We need to check the grounds. We need to figure out what to do to get this place running again before.. we start looking for Xavier." If Xavier has been gone this long, and is still alive, he should be okay for a week or so, right? Until they get back on their feet.
"Sounds like a plan, Scooter," Raven salutes from her perch, grinning.
"What about the kids?" Jean asked, breaking her blank stare to look to Scott.
"What about them?"
"Well, they've fought a war, Scott. They're not children anymore."
He nods sagely, scratching the back of his head. "I know."
He sighed. "I.. don't know. Maybe.. set them up as a team? They did face a war together."
Jean nods, "Yeah, I like that."
"We'll figure out the details later. As for this place," he folds his arms together. "I say we divide up the duties or sections. Give ourselves something to look after. Jean.. maybe start getting the school records in order? Since Xavier's missing, you will have to step in as Headmaster, that's my guess. Hank, can you get the med labs up and running? We should still be on auxiliary down there, and back on line fully within the next couple of days. I can look into the Danger Room, look into getting it up for training stuff."
Jean nodded, accepting her responsibilities. Hank grunted, which was taken as an affirmitive.
"What about me, Scooooooter?" Raven says, itching to do something now that she's back on Earth.
"....keep an eye on things? Around the grounds? Make sure things are... orderly?"
"Aye aye, Captain!" And with that, Raven hopped down from the counter, all ready to go on the prowl, er, to go supervise.
"Also." Jean caught their attentions before the dispersed. They all looked at her. "Who's gonna tell them they have to get jobs?"
(( OKAY. SO. Jean=headmaster. Scott=Xmenleader. Hank=medlabs. Raven=groundskeeper. Raven is gonna be the one to sit the kidlets down to break it to them later. Perhaps in the rec room, which OUGHT TO BE CLEANED, by the time later. Maybe the kiddies get bored and clean it? Yeah, that's right. ahaha. Jessi is gonna write a Raven narrative later. So. ))
