The Apartment Above the Groovy Tunes, Saturday Morning
All said, Jono had slept in far worse places than the floor. He'd pulled out enough blankets to make the whole experience not terrible after Rinoa and Squall's arrival last night, and Joni had only trampled him a few times. Which, really, wasn't all that different from what she'd be up to if he'd actually slept on his... bed.

His mattress on the floor. At least with Squall here, he had someone he could shake down to help him move his furniture from the Boards. He'd been putting it off a while, now, mostly because it involved actually going back to the Boards a few more times, but with company staying until they could find a place of their own, he really couldn't put that off much longer.

He'd appreciate that he actually had furniture to haul over soon enough. In the meantime, he was giving his kitchen a despairing look. He'd managed to stock the bare minimum before his company had arrived, which mostly involved milk, bread, cereal, and disposable dishes. He'd let Squall and Rinoa figure out proper groceries between them.

[OOC: Open for them what are staying in the apartment, and any kids that might have a reason to be here, too!]

Angela eyed the door curiously; there definitely seemed to be something going on here. Still, it wasn't like she could fail to recognise that mind.

She reached out politely in a telepathic "knock" and waited.

Jono didn't often get telepathic knocks that way, no. Maybe from Karla, or Emma, but that particular knock felt like neither. It was familiar in a way he couldn't put a finger on, though, so, a little warily, he made his way down the stairs, tugging his turtleneck into place as he went.

//... Coming?//

He'd be down in just a moment, Angela.

The voice was...mostly what she was expecting, but there was something a bit odd about it, so Angela bit back the teasing she'd been on the verge of and let her guard up just a touch more. Just because you knew someone in one world, it didn't mean they wouldn't kill you in another.

She'd heard the teachers' stories, okay?

JJ had recognized the island, but some of the landmarks had been a bit different and he hadn't known any of the other people in the park, so... "Wrong world or wrong time? Huh."

One phone book later and he was knocking at the door of one, Jono Starsmore.

*knock knock* And then he waited a full five seconds before fiddling with the doorhandle.

What? He was fifteen; five seconds was forever and it wasn't like this was his parents' bedroom or anything. "Da?"

Jono was about two steps from the door when he heard the boy speak, and kind of froze in his tracks for a moment at that.

Oh no. Another one?

//Er, Da?// And he'd just gone and blown his chances of pretending he wasn't home, so... so much for that. With an exasperated glance toward the ceiling, he opened the door. //It's one of those weekends, is it?//

He'd danced this dance before, JJ.

At one point, Kathe wandered over to the boy Dad had said was JJ.

"Dad says you're family this weekend," she said, all big eyes and smile. "Hi!"

"It looks like this one missed us," Rinoa said. She was a little sad -- it would have been nice to see River again -- but at the same time, relieved. She hoped that didn't make her a bad mother-to-be-one-day-in-the-way-off-future.

Dad hadn't been at the Boards, and she hadn't been able to find Mom anywhere, but Kathe knew that her Dad worked at a lot of places, so the search wasn't over.

Kathe clambered up the stairs and when she got to the apartment door, pressed her ear to it. Hearing people, she opened the door and wandered in like she owned the place.

"Dad?"

//Sunshine!//

Oh, Jono remembered this one from the last time, so her just ambling into his apartment wasn't terribly new. He even crouched down and held his arms open, for this one. She was still tiny, and she'd been a cuddly little princess the last time she was here.

//C'mere, let's have a hug, luv.//

There was something about tiny girls that brought out the weird parental instincts in him. So sue him.

She was still a cuddly little princess! Which was probably not going to surprise him one bit as she practically flew into his arms for that hug.

"Found you," she said cheerfully. "You moved from before."

This door was one; the Mother was behind this door. Safe? Yes. She couldn't sense any distress.

Pluma ran her hands over the wood. It would splinter easily. But she should at least see if it turned, first. Mother had insisted that she try her hardest not to break things that did not, strictly speaking, need to be broken.

So instead she opened the door and strode into the room. It was filled with children. Loud children. They were making it hard to concentrate.

And Pluma always had to concentrate. Did people have any idea how hard it was to constantly maintain a body through sheer force of will?

Jono took one look at Pluma.

And then one look at Rinoa.

And then one look at Pluma again.

//Not it.//

This one was so not on him.

Rinoa had already scrambled to her feet. This girl, coming in, she was powerful. Ridiculously so. It poured off her in waves. This girl had to be a Sorceress. There was no other explanation.

Which meant Jono was absolutely right. This one was hers.

"H- hello?" she managed. That was be a good start. "I mean, hi. Sweetie. How ... how are you?"

Pretend you know the dangerous, unstable-looking Sorceress, Rinoa. Do not upset her with Mommy's odd amnesia.
