The Jean Grey School, Jono's Reality, Sunday
Jono was in a fairly good mood after last night's concert, and it was showing today, with a check-in at the Jean Grey School where he was meant to work out a lesson plan for a 'Coping With Physical Changes' class later this week while Hannibal trained under Logan, and instead he was sitting around in his office, feet up on his desk, casually strumming his guitar. It was a little bit like working out a lesson plan if you squinted, right? Especially since one of the students had wandered in and started giving requests.

Yes, that student was Evan, and yes, seeing that face still left him with a knot in his guts, so to speak, but he'd avoided the version of the kid who had attended Fandom for a while, and after some reflection, if there was any one student who probably needed some guidance from somebody who knew what it was like growing up in the shadow of Apocalypse, it was probably that one.

So, after vetoing a few contemporary country artists and having a good-natured argument about which was the better member of The Highwaymen, Jono was playing some Cash for the kid. Apparently it reminded him of home. And Jono... he could appreciate needing some kind of touchstone to home. Even if home was a lie.

He had a lot of experience with having no real idea who he was meant to be, these days, too.

//Okay, mate, you're burning through my repertoire, here. How about I play one more of Johnny's and then break so you can have lun--//

Red.

Jono's eyes widened and he bloody near dropped his guitar as the flash of hurt slashed across his psionic senses, a phantom pain raking his body and momentarily leaving his hand useless at his side. A second later and he was shoving his guitar at a concerned-looking Evan with a muttered, //Hold this,// and was taking off down the hallway at a run.

Hannibal was hurt. Jono needed to go and kick somebody's face in.

[OOC: For that guy!]

Hannibal winced, but if it looked a bit like a grin...well, he had just managed to put a knife in Logan's side. And he was still standing. Mostly.

Logan grunted and coughed up just a bit of blood as he pulled the knife free.

"Anyone else would have lost that lung," Hannibal informed him cheerfully.

Logan laughed. It started wheezy, but was back to normal after a few seconds.

So, what Jono burst into the training room to was Logan, laughing, and Hannibal, bleeding.

He didn't look pleased.

//What the sodding hell happened in here?//

He didn't even need to pull his wrappings off in order to look totally ready to blast somebody a new one if need be. How convenient was that?

Hannibal glanced at Jono and nodded toward Logan's side. It might have healed, but there was still blood on his clothing. "I think I'm improving," he said a bit smugly. "But I could probably use a bandage." There was a decent slash across the side of his hand, and he held it up to keep it from bleeding too badly.

//... No kidding.// Jono's tone was weirdly blank for a moment, and then he was stalking his way across the room to fetch the first-aid kit. //Please tell me you didn't just let Logan take a chunk out of you in order to be able to take a piece out of him?//

This was not his happy tone.

Hannibal shrugged. "I would of course have preferred to avoid injury, but I was willing to chance one for the other, yes."

"Teach me not to expect that," Logan said. "You're definitely learning, doc."

//Yes, well, he's not the one with the bloody healing factor,// Jono grumbled, making his way back with the first aid kit and opening it up to go for a rummage. //Keep that one in mind when you get too close to those claws just to score a few points.//

"I'll do my best," Hannibal answered, amused. He reached for a bandage to clean up, winced at the turn, and sat rather ungracefully.

Jono took this opportunity to fix Logan with a scathing glower for that one before crouching down and making a reach for the bandages and disinfectants himself.

//Was wondering when you'd do that, too,// he muttered. //I felt that, you know. Don't suppose there was a way to take a piece out of Logan without getting banged up from top to bottom?//

"How many do you suppose manage that?" Hannibal asked, still amused. "The rest is only bruises and strains," he assured Jono. "I will be fine. Although I suppose I should work on some techniques to keep from distracting you. I hope I didn't interrupt anything important?"

//I was about to wrap it up anyway,// Jono replied, wrinkling his nose and unscrewing the cap from the disinfectant cream. //You know, you need this hand. It'd be a bloody shame if Logan's arm swung out, what, three inches more'n it did?//

Adamantium against bone was kind of no contest.

"I know his precise reach," Hannibal said. "I wouldn't have gone three inches closer."

"Dangerous assumption, doc," Logan spoke up. "What if I had extra inches I don't always use? Never assume you've seen everything the other guy has to offer."

Hannibal nodded in acknowledgement.

//Especially around here,// Jono added, contemplating his now-unscrewed tube of disinfectant before looking skeptically at Hannibal's injury again and making a grab for some disinfectant wipes, first. Hands bled a lot. Of course they did. //When half the time you're up against an opponent who might not even be completely sure themselves what their upper limit is.//

He was cranky, but at least he was gentle as he moved to sop up some of that extra blood.

//Everyone has something in reserve, these days. You got the upper hand this time, but this was a training exercise. If you weren't injured right now, I'd kick your bloody arse, Lecter.//

Lovingly.

Hannibal couldn't put a hand on Jono's shoulder without another painful turn, so instead he sent him soothing and affectionate thoughts. "I appreciate your concern."

Behind him, Logan rolled his eyes at the PDA.

//I'd settle for you not giving me a reason to be,// Jono kvetched, satisfied that he'd gotten enough blood out of the way to put some cream on the wound. //The both of you, honestly.//

Don't think he didn't know you were making faces over there, Logan.

"I'll do my best," Hannibal promised, still amused. He turned his hand to give Jono better access to it, and forebore from saying he and Logan were both more or less responsible adults.
