It wasn't often Dani felt this way. Or rather Dani hadn't felt this way recently. Homesick . Not for the mansion and the woods but for something deeper. For the Rez and for the sense of community and home that was different than any other place.

She knew why. The changing from Spring to Summer. Getting ready for the big July pow-wow and working on her dance. Of course, neither of those were the only reasons.

No, it was also just about when her grandfather was killed. She knew it wasn't really her fault but it stung. Probably more than losing her parents did. Her parent's deaths were something much more complex for her. She had done everything she could and they still went. That was also in the late summer. Too many events happening at the same time.

Normally she'd go camping. Go to the woods and live out there for a few weeks. Connecting with nature and just refocusing herself. But she lived in the middle of the city now. Harder to find a good place and she was loath to go back to Xavier's to camp right now.

Which kind of sucked because the people she'd most rely on for support were also there. Maybe she was wrong and moving here was a mistake. Or maybe it was just the time of year talking.

So she went to find someone who might understand. She didn't really know Jimmy as much as she'd like but she knew enough to know they had many things in common besides both being Natives. She knocked on his door, beers in hand. Hoping he drank, and if not, well, more for her. "James? You in there?" Unsure if they were close enough to use his nickname or not.

He sat in a large lawn chair on the roof of the brownstone, letting his senses reach out across Mutant Town. Dressed in his preferred outfit of blue jeans, a belt with his knives, and nothing else, he looked like a man from another time.

James didn’t really think he’d ever get used to the stink of the city streets—in fact, M-Town smelled better than most other parts of the city, probably because he wasn’t the only one here with a sensitive nose. But up here, in the wind, high above the ground, the smell wasn’t as bad. Still smoggy, still dirty, and he still longed for the fresh air of home, but much more tolerable. He watched and listened as the mutant community went on living their lives. It was hard here, hard in a different way than his childhood had been. Money was more abundant, but also much more necessary. The Apache had not gone a day without missing his home, the desert wilderness, the fresh air, the clear night sky still untouched by light pollution.

But he didn’t regret coming here. He’d done a lot of good for the neighborhood since he’d first arrived. Almost nobody these days tried to avoid him or acted nervously around him, as they’d done when they had only known him as a calm giant who walked unafraid among them. They’d seen him grin and laugh now, and they knew him well enough to know that he wouldn’t use his strength against others lightly.

Mutant Town wasn’t where he wanted. But it was what he wanted.

Ears pricked up slightly at the knocking sound in the brownstone. Then, he heard Dani’s voice at his door, asking if he was around. Hm. James stood up and stepped off the edge of the roof, dropping four stories to catch the sill of his open window. He slipped into the room, grabbed the faded red polo off his bed, and pulled it over his head as he walked over to the door. Pulling the door open, he glanced at the drinks in the Cheyenne’s hand. “Hey, Dani. Something up?”

There was something different about M-Town. It wasn't home, that was for sure, and it wasn't Xavier's, but there was a nice community feel to it. That they knew on some level they were all in this together. A small refuge in the middle of the bustling city.

If it had been in a different area, or if it was just another small neighborhood, Dani wasn't sure she would have lasted very long here. She needed family and community. She breathed it. She had grown up both with it and without it. It was in her blood in so many ways.

She couldn't help the slight glance over Jimmy as he opened the door. Offering him a beer. "You do drink right?" She knew a number of people who didn't. Many back home were scared to, seeing what drinking had done on the Rez. But it was different out here, or at least Dani liked to tell herself that.

"I just...I don't know." She gave a slight smile. "Come on let's sit and talk some where?" Standing in the open hallway and trying to say anything of what was on her mind was giving her a little anxiety. She wasn't good at this stuff anyway and to do it where someone might overhear was making her extra nervous. "I mean if you are free. If not, I can leave."
