"Why did I show up so freaking early?" Grace asked herself. Her hands were shaking as she dug through her bag, and her eyes kept flicking to the door to reassure herself that she'd locked it. She finally dropped the bag on the bed and shook her hands back and forth, taking a few deep breaths.

A little more composed, she managed to get what she needed out of her bag and sat down, setting the items in her lap. She was about to flick on her lighter when she noticed the smoke detector on the wall. "You gotta be freaking kidding me," she said, stuffing her things back in her bag angrily. The main lobby of HQ as well as the gym were both free of alarm systems, so why had someone installed one in the spare bedroom?

"Are they expecting someone to burst into flames in their sleep?" she mused as she struggled to unlock the door. She looked at the lounge area for a second then, deciding it was too exposed, made her way to the gym.

"Why did I show up so freaking early?" she asked herself again, sitting down on a bench and getting out her things again. The lighter refused to light the first six times she snapped it, but it finally produced a flame long enough to light the paper in her mouth. Grace took a long drag then shook the lighter, feeling the tiny bit of liquid inside splash around. She exhaled a cloud of smoke and tossed the lighter into her bag in disgust.

"57 minutes left," she said, checking her watch. Birch hadn't given her a lot of details; a time, a place, and an assurance that she wouldn't be put on display for the whole team just yet. She didn't know who all would be coming, but she had a few guesses she was too nervous to even think about right now.

"Why did you show up early?"

Walking into the gym was Jennifer. She glanced down at Grace, a large cup of coffee in her hands. Dressed to the nines, Jennifer had on a red midriff shirt, a black jacket and jeans. "You're not nervous about today are you?" She sipped at her coffee.

"Me? Nervous?" Grace asked. She looked Jennifer up and down and swore at herself for not dressing nicer. She was wearing jeans and a spaghetti strap top with her hair pulled back in a ponytail, but she felt like she was wearing a trash bag with holes in it. "Why would I be nervous? I only abused my power and betrayed someone on your team. That's no big deal, right?"

She took another drag and blew the smoke out the side of her mouth. "Or were you asking about this?" she asked, holding up the tightly wrapped and strong smelling joint. "This is medicinal. But I've still got to avoid smoke alarms. Which is harder in the winter."

Jennifer sat down next to Grace. "I've done the same. I kissed Derrick behind Ramona's back once. Nearly had sex with him at one point. All because I felt the need to fuck around with her. I even cheated on my own boyfriend once, but he took it better than I could ever hope."

She glanced down at Grace. "I'm not trying to compete. I'm just trying to say I have been and probably will still be a bitch. I just have better judgement nowadays."

"You did all that on impulse," Grace noted, taking another drag. "I did mine on orders. I'm not sure if that makes it better or worse."

She paused for a second. "Any hints on what I'm in for today?" she asked.

"Hm. Considering it's Birch who brought you here, it's probably to test your gift maybe. Or to ask you questions in an interview...Or hell...who knows..." Jennifer shrugged and took another gulp of her coffee. She glanced at Grace. "What do you think he wants?"

At the same time, Jennifer read Grace's mind to see if it matched with her answer.

"Well I'm not wearing that stupid helmet this time," she said, putting out the cigarette and tossing the remains into a container in her bag. "So I guess he trusts me a little more. Or at least he thinks it's not worth it since you guys kinda outed yourselves when Bloodfang showed up." She pulled out an aerosol can and began spraying a lavender scented mist around her.

"I think he wants to test my powers and see what I can do," she continued. "But he said some of the team would be showing up as well. Maybe he wants me to try some kind of combo attack, or..." her eyes got wider. "You don't think he wants me to fight someone, do you? I can't....I can't really do anything that's good in a fight. He...he wouldn't set all this up just to watch someone punch me in the face, would he?"

It was clear to Jennifer that Grace was telling the truth and just a little panicked.

At that point, Jennifer's eyes widened. She began to laugh wildly, setting her coffee down so not to spill it. It got so bad she clutched her stomach.

"Oh my god..." She breathed, rubbing her eyes. "Oh....No. No, no, no, no....Birch wouldn't do that at all. God, anyone could look at you and guess you haven't been in many fights. Jesus...."

Grace took a few deep breaths. "S-sorry," she said. "I still get some side effects. I've got a pretty good tolerance, and this blend isn't designed for getting high, but still..."

"So...I'm guessing you guys know about my ability?" she asked. "I'm sure Tobias had all kinds of things to say about how creepy and nasty it was." She dropped her gaze to the floor.

"Hmm....I haven't been told anything." Jennifer rested a finger on her chin. "But I'm sure you'll share when the time is right."

Jennifer smiled slightly. "It's nice to talk to someone though who isn't afraid of showing some skin." She pointed at Grace's bare shoulders. "I swear, Laika and Sarah act all prudish and I think Ramona has no idea what she's doing with clothes and gets lucky half the time."

"It's like my mom used to say," Grace replied, smiling a little. "if you've got a power, learn how to use it properly."

"I see. So your power has something to do with your skin. Or rather, it requires skin contact?" Jennifer raised an eyebrow.

"Oh, no nothing like that," Grace replied. "I was just saying that, you know, good looks can be their own kind of superpower, right? They can be almost as good as mind control."

She took a moment to adjust her glasses. "My actual power requires direct eye contact. Even these cheap plastic lenses are enough to block it. I started wearing them so I didn't accidentally hurt anyone, but now it's just kinda habit."

"Mind control that requires direct eye contact. Well....That's interesting." Jennifer pretended to be disinterested. She looked away from Grace for a while and then turned to her.

"Okay, seriously. It's kind of cool. I mean...Imagine the shit you stirred up!"

"Er, not control," Grace replied. She guessed Tobias hadn't been as talkative about her ability as she'd thought. "More...body restriction. As long as I maintain eye contact, I can force a person's body to remain perfectly still. I can even make it last for a little bit after I've looked away. But the stronger they are the harder it is to maintain. I used it on Nathan once and it felt like I ate a slushie too fast."
