Chapter Not Quite Three - pre-breakfast
OOC: Ali and Jane agree to meet for the walk to school. This gives them a place to do this before Chapter 3 starts.

As soon as she got up, Jane responded to the text from Ali with the time a little before she normally left.  Unlike her usual foot dragging, she was out the door on time and had already told her BFF and her big sister that she was walking to school with someone else. She lingered at the corner waiting for Ali.

As soon as she saw her, she rushed toward her with a big smile on her face.

Ali gives Jane a big hug. "You've grown just a little," she says with a smile.

Once they've finished hugging et al she says, "Let's move along so we can chat. I don't have long."

When they're walking along and no one seems to be paying them any particular attention she says, "I met someone last night at the cemetery. I thought you might want to tell me something. And, if so I have some news for you."

"Yeah, that was me. I'd show you but people could see. After last night, I felt I had to tell my parents. Mom took it way more calmly than I would have thought. I heard her talking to Dad. They said that there was some talk that I might have powers, when they adopted me. All I had heard was that it was a closed adoption. Do you know any way to try to find out more?

"And everyone from last night?! What's up with that? Look at all them. One of them looked kind of familiar."

"I would talk to your parents about your adoption. I wouldn't be able to get that information.

"I'm meeting the other two from last night very shortly for breakfast. I wanted to talk to you first, though. I expect we'll all be able to coordinate and get along, if not work together. Is it OK if I speak for your alter-ego there?"


Ali lowers her voice further. "And so you know you're not alone here: I have a power, too. I have exceptionally good hearing."

Then Ali continues where she left off. "There was a fifth person, too. He showed up at the end. I'll be tracking him down later to figure out who he is and what his story is. I don't know yet if we can work with him or not."

"Damn it," Jane muttered. "I was hoping you might be able to get access to records like on TV."

When Ali outed herself, Jane looked excited. "Good hearing? What's that do? You're like that lady from Battlestar in that awful NBC show from a couple of years ago? You've got bionic hearing?

"Oops, yeah, you can tell 'em I'm interested in helping. Just don't tell them my real name, okay?"

"Good hearing like I can hear everything around, including like a bat. But I hear far better than a bat.

"No, I won't give them your real name. I figure I can set up a meeting between all of us at a time when you can make it in your other persona. But first I have to see if everyone is on the same page."

"Sounds like a plan. I'll check my phone between classes. Let me know if you need anything." She looked so excited.

"I'll text you. Just don't check in class."
