H4ck stared at the ceiling for a while before looking back to Dovetail as she slept in her chair a few feet from his bed That was a close one... almost didn't make it...
he notes Susan's hair falling over her eyes and has a brief memory which makes him cringe as he pushes it away and stares at the ceiling again, he stays that way until Susan wakes and Vivian comes in to check on him. H4ck keeps his answers positive and short about what happened and how he is feeling, chuckling to no end as Vivian tries to help him like a mother hen, it was cute really.
After she brought up lunch H4ck excuses Vivian so he can take a shower and eat, turning down her offer to get one of the guys on the team to join him to make sure he is ok and doesn't fall in the shower.
The main reason he asked her to leave was because he felt... different. Lighter maybe, like if he wanted to he could jump out the window and fly. And as tempting as that idea was, last he checked he couldn't and wasn't going to take a 16 story swan-dive to test a very flimsy theory... He was however going to take that shower and run through the basic lessons TK had taught him back when he first joined with his old team, breathing and concentrating mainly with some light working out to help blood flow... at least it would if he still had blood... H4ck sighed as he thought about what he was now, had been for a while now, but a memory of Stonehenge got him smiling again.
After his workout, exercises and shower he was feeling better though the feeling of being lighter still lingered. He began to think of the gym/workout center on the floor a few flights above him while he finished dressing in his uniform Wha I really need is a real workou...
H4ck didn't finish the thought as he now stood in the middle of the gym. "Wha the he..."
H4ck stood for a moment and thought on what had happened moments before suddenly appearing in the gym, a smile played on his lips then began concentrating on his room, he closed his eyes and mentally pictured his bed and nightstand while reaching out with his hand... finding it touching the lamp that sat on his nightstand H4ck opened his eyes and chuckled to himself.
"Well now this is new... I... heh I wonder how far I kin go...."
he said aloud as he began concentrating on his old base, his old room, the ugly as sin closet each member had... almost as if he could touch it... H4ck opened his eyes after touching a wall to find... still in the Ander's Building... "So neh across the world, good te know. 'm going te need te find out how far I -can- go sometime soon though..."
H4ck closed his eyes again and reopened them in the Gym with a smile as he started to run through his other workout, flicking his wrists to form dual tonfa's in his hands.
'm going te ask Ethan if they kin get some training dummies out here tha me weapons don't jus pass through...heh
he thought to himself then stopped his exercise when he remembered he was supposed to still be in the infirmary...
neh a problem, I kin jus pop back in here...
he started trying to remember the room he was in the bed and closed his eyes... to find himself still in the gym a moment later. ...So I take it I need to have been there often... great, 've turned inte Hayden Christensen in his bad remake o'a good book
H4ck chuckles and walks down to the infirmary, trying to dodge anyone seeing him.
"Aye Ms. Vivian, 'm really neh needin te be checked up on, see? 'm fine now, jus a wee bit o'cobwebs I had te clear out."
he smiles as he leads Vivian out of the room while walking out himself.
A note is attached to the Gym doors "I'm practicing getting my mental form down, not pushing myself so no need to worry if ye see me looking all glow-y."
Inside the gym, H4ck is full on purple/maroon glow, motes of energy floating off the tops of his shoulders and his head. He was slowly going through a simple martial art kata that Lee had taught him, focusing on keeping himself from coming apart while at the same time focusing on him not being fully formed, if he had sweat glands he would probably be sweating from concentration.
After another shower H4ck heads out into town to see some of the sights he had passed over when he first arrived. The library, theaters, local banks... That got him thinking about his status in the US, could he get a bank account? He'd ask Ethan about that sometime later.
H4ck was a good halfway across town when he decided to head home. "hmm... well this is good chance te see how far I can 'jump'..."
he looked up at a roof and was up there in a second. From up on the roof he could see the tower in the distance "A good, wha, 35-40 kilometers?"
he closed his eyes and began to breathe deeply and thought of the lamp next to his bed. The image was slightly fuzzy.. as if looking through murky water... he concentrated on clearing the image, slowly pulling it into focus. H4ck felt something touch his hand and he opened his eyes to find himself in his room! He felt a wave of joy for a second before a wave of dizziness forced him to sit down "Right then. Long distance=Dizzy. Do neh try te get inte combat doing this..."
he laid down on the bed and stretched "Now then... if I kin only go te places 'm familiar with..."
he gets up and starts his rounds.
H4ck finishes in the TV room, touching a plant in the back of the room and committing to his memory the feel of it, Ethan and his crew weren't giving knock-offs either it was good to see they had real live plants and not plastic ones.
"Me room, infirmary, library..."
he starts ticking off on his fingers "Gym, TV room, showers, roof... aye I thin I got all the places 'll be needin te get to..."
H4ck nodded to himself while walking from the room, passing by the kitchen he spied some fudge on the counter and chuckled to himself "Wish I still had an appetite. Seems like there is always food here."
The note is back up on the gym doors. Glowing purple can be seen under the doors.
H4ck is taking his last shower for the day when the thought comes to mind I wonder if anyone else is awake?...
H4ck stared at the ceiling for a while before looking to the clock "I need te get a bloody hobby..."
