Waking Up - Open
The boy known as Pyro had been sleeping ever since Logan had clocked him one and the Professor had placed him in a state of hibernation. It was safer and easier that way, no one had any idea of what had happened and they hadn’t even probed that deeply to find out because it was John and everyone must have figured it was Pyro being Pyro.

The med lab was filled with the constant rhythm of his steady breathing and the soft slow beeps of a heart that still beat in a chest that hadn’t opened up lungs to say a single word. It was strange how quiet he could be if given a chance and it even bordered on weird.

However, there was something different about John today.

His heart rate was accelerating rapidly, his breathing catching in the back of his throat as eyes raced under the closed lids and his fingers twitched almost restlessly like they were reaching for something but they didn’t know what.

In the next instance and with a gasping breath John was jerking upwards, eyes snapping wide open before closing suddenly and quickly as light burned them and he all but scrambled away from the reality that hit him full force.

John panicked that much that he ended up on the ground, instantly curling up at the cold that seemed to reach past flesh and into bone before scrambling closer to the wall, huddling into himself as if that would stop the world from spinning.

He didn’t know where he was, who he was, or even why he felt like his stomach was turning inside out and God, he wished his head would just stop pounding over and over again.

John needed – wanted – answers and there were none to be had, it was like reaching inside of his mind and finding nothing but a blank slate and it frightened the hell out of him.

Who was he?

Why was he here?

And why did his hands ache as if they’d lost something that they’d always held onto?

John folded his head into his hands and closed his eyes as he tried to make sense out of everything that didn’t make sense and he almost – almost – felt like crying and he hadn’t done that …he couldn’t remember but he felt it had been a really long time.

Why did nothing make sense?

Current Mood: confused confused

Bobby grumbled to himself as he checked his watch. It was time for John duty, and thus he switched off his X-Box angrily. John duty was always much easier than Rogue duty. He never talked, he just slept there peacefully and Bobby couldn't be happier. However, it was a precious chunk of his day that was dedicated to sitting in a room with a vegetable and changing bedpans. He marched off towards the infirmary.

When he arrived, however, John's eyes were wide open and he was stirring. Bobby cautiously walked forward into the room, and then said, "Oh hey, you're up." He walked over to the side of his bed and followed up with, "We were wondering when you were going to come around, because you have a lot of questions to answer."

John’s eyes slid upwards and they narrowed briefly as he recognized the face - the voice - and yet he came up with …nothing. A blank slate, a missing piece, and he didn’t know who he was or even what he wanted.

What questions?

“Where am I?” John asked from his position on the ground. He hoped the disorientation and confusion would fade and he’d be able to remember but he just couldn’t comprehend much of anything.

He looked at his hands again and wondered why they ached and why he itched to fidget with something, anything – he just didn’t know what.

Bobby pulled up a chair, spinning it around to sit backwards in it as he talked with John. "You're in the infirmary," he said simply. He could tell John wasn't his usual self, that he most likely had just woken up and was disorientated. "At the school," he followed up. "Magneto left you guys here," he said, feeling a smug sense of satisfaction by pointing out to John that his fearless leader had abandonded him.
