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!]

And now it was Jono's phone that was making noise.

?!?!?!?!?!??!?!

//You have no idea, mate.//

Jono pulled out his phone and checked it, smirked a little around the corner of his eyes, and then texted back.

That was what I did. I have no idea how it happened, either. But he's definitely... here.

"Ew! Please don't tell me. You guys are too goopy already, I don't need to know anything more!" He leaned over to try to see Jono's phone. "Is that mom?"

HOW DO WE HAVE A KID?

...

I am getting a room at the hotel. I can come over later! How old is he?

//It is,// Jono replied, nodding his head and texting back as he spoke. //She's getting a hotel room at the moment, apparently.//

You think this is shocking? I have one with Hannibal, too.

He was still wrapping his head around Angela, yes.

Ours is at least a teenager. Seems like a good lad. Does that big-eye-thing you do. Visit whenever you can.

It wasn't too much later before Momoko had traveled the few blocks from the Arms to the Groovy Tunes and was peaking in the still open door.

"Hey? Anyone seen an obviously super cute cute teenager possibly on fire and probably eating sugar but at least eating?"

//Last I checked, he was introducing himself to his new temporary younger sister,// Jono said, waving Momoko in. //Don't be surprised if he informs you that you and I need to start working on getting him one he can keep.//

It was amazing how you could tell Jono was blushing, even if he couldn't technically blush.

Just like Momoko! Except, no. You could totally tell she was blushing.


"EH?! He knows we're not together, right? You didn't leave that to me to explain?" Jono? So mean! What did she ever do to you?

...

Don't answer that.

//I'm fairly certain he's aware. It's just, just like the rest of them, the reality they know is the one true, as opposed to all of those strange alternates where their parents wound up with the wrong partners.// He shrugged faintly. //I don't know about you, but I'm not in any hurry to start having children in the first place, never mind attempting to go for a particular gender on top of that.//

"In a hurry...? No!" though every time this kind of thing happened, she did start wondering.

"One of my daughters from last year was like that. Boaz. But she was from that world with Umbridge, so she was a little sheltered, too." Momoko loked over at the boy Jono had indicated as their son. "He's not blue and not on fire."

She looked back up to Jono. Was he okay with that?

//He's not, thank god,// Jono replied, nodding faintly. //I haven't asked him yet if he's manifested anything. Mutant genes generally stop sitting dormant around puberty. Some manifest earlier, some later...//

Jono himself had been something of a late bloomer, in that regard.

//But if he has, and he came through it in one piece, I'm considering it a win.//

He wouldn't wish Starsmore genetics on any child.

Momoko frowned lightly. "Would he have any mutant genes? I don't; I just have the Chemical Z." Which made her a mutate, technically.

//The X-Gene is hereditary. Especially in my family,// Jono replied with a small nod of his head. //There... haven't been any new manifests in my world since M-Day, but no current mutants have exactly been reproducing to see if it's just among the human population. So... simply put? I don't know.//

"Is it polite to ask? In case he needs something, I mean. Or should we just leave..." uh...

"Jono? What's his name?"

WORST MOM EVER.

//Er...// Jono wasn't much better, really, but at least he'd had the good sense to eavesdrop while JJ and the other kids were talking amongst themselves. //He goes by JJ.//

Which was short for something he'd really rather not talk about. Lord.
