[Prefect didn't leave a particularly wide opening between finding out about Cassel's graduation, and going to hunt down Barron. He exchanged a few messages with the Transformation Worker, then set off to find his own inmate.

He made a bee line for Barron's room, and rapped on the door carefully. Unsure if Barron would be upset or happy at whatever passed between himself and Cassel, Prefect lingered in the corridor, probably concerned to a point that wasn't entirely due.]

[Barron was sitting on his bed, still staring at the pictures that Cassel had given him. He hadn't quite resolved how he felt about them, since they were both fantastic and heart wrenching.]

[At the sound of the knock, he went to answer the door, photos still in hand.]

Hey, man. You saw the post?

I am. [Barron actually looks... happy, for once.] We talked. It was good.

[He stops, before clarifying.] We sorted some stuff out that we should have worked out a long time ago.

I can see why, man. [Barron had, unusually for him, spent the last day really thinking about things.]

I've got something to ask you, though. [Barron pauses, then continues.] If I asked for my power back, would you give it to me?

Date: 2013-09-22 10:54 pm (UTC)
sharpememory: (Hmm)
From: [personal profile] sharpememory
I don't know. [Barron seems more resigned than unsure about that.] I mean, isn't it kind of inevitable to misuse it? If I use it for the right reason, than I'll start forgetting the things that I learned.

I think you make me sound a lot better than I am. [Barron laughs, but he can see Prefect's point.]

[He continues on, more serious this time.] I can tell you what, though. I don't think I'd ever use it unless things were really, really serious.

sharpememory: (Lol)
From: [personal profile] sharpememory
Well, I don't know. [Barron looks sheepish.] I suppose gangster and murderer-for-hire aren't really options now. Which is probably for the best, right?

sharpememory: (Huh)

[The prospect of not going home seems completely shocking to Barron, who just looks at Prefect for a second with his mouth slightly open before responding.]

...But what about mom? Whose going to look after her?

sharpememory: (Considering)
From: [personal profile] sharpememory
[Even if Barron doesn't want to say it out loud, he knows that Prefect is right - sooner or later, his mom will work him... just like she's always done.]

If I left, where would you go? [Barron asks instead. Because with Cassel here and his mom a dangerous person to be around, there isn't a great deal waiting for Barron back home.]

[Damn, that's depressing. But Barron gets it. He nods, then smiles wanly.]

Almost makes me think that we should go back to that alien resort.

Date: 2013-09-23 12:31 am (UTC)
sharpememory: (Sounds good)
From: [personal profile] sharpememory
I think that might not be the most moral job to do...

[Barron pauses, then decides to take the plunge and ask.] Have you ever wanted to see my world for yourself?

sharpememory: (Talking)
From: [personal profile] sharpememory
Maybe we could just visit them. [Barron pauses.] But I'm getting ahead of myself, I guess. This is all hypothetical until I graduate.

Date: 2013-09-23 01:04 am (UTC)
sharpememory: (Wait what)
From: [personal profile] sharpememory
So is that it? [Barron looks rather blindsided by this development.] Does that mean that I'm good enough to go home?

Date: 2013-09-23 01:24 am (UTC)
sharpememory: (Lol)
From: [personal profile] sharpememory
He wouldn't set me up with a new warden just now, would he?

[Barron stops talking, actually thinking through things for once. He takes off one of his gloves, examining his bare hand.]

I think my power might be back?

[And a grin.] But I don't think I'm going to test it.

sharpememory: (Looking down)
From: [personal profile] sharpememory
Come on, man. It's nothing you haven't seen before.

[Barron is laughing as he says that, but he slides his glove back on anyway.]

So, are you going to come home with me? Now that it's a real thing?

Date: 2013-09-23 10:00 am (UTC)
sharpememory: (Looking down)
From: [personal profile] sharpememory
You should be. I mean, here is nothing like the outside world.

[Barron gestures at the room around them, but really means the barge as a whole.]

Exploring space and that is great, but there are some things that you only see if you stay in one place for a while, you know?
