See, here was the thing. Somewhere among all of the gremlin insanity, weaselled in around things like being attacked by the guardsmen of highly corrupt political systems and conversations about how people had gotten hurt by him in the past, Jonothon had come to the realization that he needed to at least go through the motions of getting out and training himself in the use of his powers.
And it just so happened that Sookie, whose own newer powers happened to manifest in front of Jono back on their rescue-Bobby mission, was in need of somebody to train with, herself.
That worked out very nicely. Especially considering the fact that she didn't seem inclined to do things like stare, or scream, or do a little of both before running the other way, or anything like that.
And that was why they'd found their way out to the preserve. Possibly to train, possibly to commiserate. Whatever the case was, it was an outing that was intended to give them both at least a little peace of mind.
//Yer know, I haven't really trained with my powers in quite some time,// Jono admitted, sticking his hands into his pockets and looking around the little wooded area that they were tucked away in. //Not since my time at the Massachusetts Academy, really.//
[For the Sookie!]
