GenXRP 2 - After Mojo

Raven heads back to the rec room, where the kids are talking loudly and digging through the debris. She leans on the doorframe, which actually kinda makes a scraping sound, as it is cracked. She frowns and clears her throat. "Hey, kittens!"

The children all look up. Ali sits in a chair, her eyes puffy from crying. Some others are trying to comfort her, a few more trying to straighten up their long lost home. "I hate to be the one to tell you this..." Who is she kidding, she really does not want to give these kids more bad news.

"Xavier was taken. Until we get Mister Monopoly back, we have...to fund the school ourselves. I know a lot of you have parents, and you're more than welcome to go back to them. But I also know you probably don't want to be separated from your friends, your family." Way to use a guilt trip, Rave. "You all could get jobs? I am sure Jean and Hank would help you. You'll still get schooled and such..." Raven has no idea what shes talking about.

"So. What do you think?"

Raven goes to Pietro and puts her arm around him. "You know the people at the stores? That you give money to?" Hint hint.

"You mean I have to go to work to feed my family? But I'm only seventeen!" He pouts. "I'm scared, mommie. I've never had a legal job before." He brightens. "Does it have to be a legal job?"

"We're all going to have to do it too. ...And yea, it'll have to be legal. Until I can figure something out." MONEY IS MONEY, SCOOOTER.

"Okay, mommie. I'll get a job. Are there really Want-Ads or are they only in tv?"

"....there are want ads." She looks at the floor, maybe there is a newspaper there.

Lorna's not really sure if she's hearing this properly.

"We have to get jobs?" She looks at her fellow interdimensional travellers, looking rather doubtful. "Will they even hire us?"

"They will when I'm done with them," a new voice enters the room, a slight joking manner in her tone. However, she is completely serious. Jean Grey steps into the rec room, leaning on the door frame with her arms crossed.

"Much appreciated, Raven." Jean nods slightly in her direction, a smirk tugging at the corner of her mouth. The feeling was mutual.

Lorna looked a little [extremely] doubtful, but she just shrugged, figuring that Jean would know how to look after it. She'd always tended to be good like that.

"If you say so..." She smiled a little, wondering if she even had any skills that people would be able to hire her for.

"I have no problem with working, I mean, it can't possibly be any tougher than other jobs we've had." Blink looks sideways at Lorna and crosses her arms, turning her gaze to Jean. "I don't doubt you can be very...persuasive, Jean- but you'd be able to get us all jobs?...even me?"

"We'll figure out something for everyone. Even you. We'll have to get you an inducer, but that's something Hank or myself can tinker with in the next few days."
