Jacob helps Gabby out of the woods and back to his apartment. It wasn’t until she was standing in his living room looking at the awards and diplomas on the wall that she remembered it wasn’t just a criminology degree he’d gotten. He was with the FBI.

She was considering what to do when Jacob came back with a pair of large baggy sweats. “This should do you for now.” He sat down on his couch and rubbed his head. “So… you’ve changed since High School…”

*************************************************************************************
After Transpower threw the… creature away all hell broke loose. The school went on lockdown and the campus was flooded with cops, and emergency personnel and lord knows what else. Luckily no one knew of Laurene’s involvement and Transpower disappeared before anyone could talk to her.

The next day the campus buzzed with talk of what happened. The authorities searched for the attacker but couldn’t find anything. The current leading theory was some sort of hallucinogen was released and everyone imagined it.

Both Laurene and Crystal knew that was bullshit, but didn’t know anything else. Though Laurene had felt something familiar from Transpower...

"Since yesterday, actually," she said, lounging on his couch, the springs creaking loudly under her mass. She was still the same Gaby, lithe, energetic, comfortable in her body and still beautiful, just in a very very different way. There was just so much more of her now. She wasn't quite sure what to make of it herself, and certainly wasn't sure how to read Jacob's reaction, though she watched very closely.

"From the looks of your wall, you've changed quite a bit since high school too."

Jacob looked around and nodded. “Yeah. I guess I have…” he looked back at her, his stare a bit intense. “You changed yesterday?”

She laughed at his reaction. "What, you didn't think this was all clean living, hard training and experimental steroids did you?" She shook her head. "Nope, it's freakier than that. I literally just woke up like this.

"Ta da!" she called, holding out her arms with a sour look on her face. "You didn't tell me what you think of the new me. Though maybe that's a good thing."

Crystal met up with her room mate just after Laurene gave her statement to the authorities and walked back with her to their room.

The following morning Crystal prepared a full breakfast for the two of them. "Good morning, roomie!"

"Hey," Laurene said through bleary eyes and sporting hair that needed (but would resist) a brush. She was wearing long flannel pajama bottoms and had just finished pulled a sweatshirt over her head. She main a beeline to the coffee and inhaled the aroma. Leaning against the kitchenette table and looking at Crystal over her mug, she studied her roommate. Mischievous thoughts worked their way over the folds of her brain and she smirked. It wouldn't take much, just a persistent nudge, and the course of the morning would take a decidedly different direction. She sipped her coffee...

... and the burning sensation on her tongue jerked her out of her daydreaming. "Ow! Hot!" she cried. Laurene set the coffee cup down and took a seat. "What did you fix?" she asked.

Crystal surpressed a grin as Laurene abruptly awoke up. "Here, this is good for you and may help sooth your burning lips." she said while placing a glass of orange juice in front of Laurene. Crystal stepped back into the heart of their small kitchen, her long black hair flowing down over the back of her royal blue Islander logo t-shirt to the top of her matching royal blue and white trimmed running shorts. With a proud smile Crystal placed the completed plate in front of Laurene. "For our fine breakfast today we have eggs with chiles, diced peppers, diced onion, black beans, rice, and a big spoonfull of homemade chorizo with fresh tortillas." She paused and sat down with her own plate of food, placing a third plate of tortillas between them.

Still grinning Crystal looked into her roommate's eyes and asked, "So, what do you think? Is this good for you?"

Laurene thought, "I'm sorry, I stopped paying attention once you said 'burning lips.'"

She dug into her breakfast. "This is awesome thanks!" She paused between bits and asked, "Girl, when did you have the time to make chorizo?"

Jacob grinned and turned and grinned, a bit of a blush creeping up. “You look fine.” He shook His head and his face sobered. “But seriously. We should probably talk about what happened?” He slid forward on his seat. “How did you end up out on the jogging path naked?”

Re: Crystal, Gabby and Laurene.
She frowned at his reaction and pouted a little. Fine. Someone had just told her she looked fine, it was worse than she thought. She needed to fix this!

She sighed at the question explaining, "Well, for the naked part, I already explained, sort of. They do not make stretchy pants that are quite this stretchy. I woke up about forty sizes bigger than I went to sleep, nothing came close to fitting."

"But then I guess there's the 'on the path' part. That part is more interesting. When I did wake up, naked, as I said, come cops knocked on my door looking to ask some questions. Except they didn't ask questions, they started shooting at me. I ran, err jumped away. I had a bed sheet but it didn't make the trip very well, unfortunately."


"I have no idea who they were, but they weren't cops. Have no idea why they wanted me dead either." She cringed a little and continued apologetically, "sorry I probably should have gone into that earlier, but I really needed your help."

Crystal replied between bites, "Honestly I broght this back from the latest pot my moma and I made Saturday. The best flavor comes into chorizo a day or two after you first make it."

"And your welcome. So, do you have a minute to talk about what happened yesterday? After the attack and before I found you with the police, I mean."

"That makes sense," Laurene replied regarding the sausage.

To the question, she said, "Oh, sure," and then after a short pause added, "How about before that when you donned a pink leotard and punted it into the next county?"

She let the expected wave of shock and embarrassment from Crystal crash over her but didn't want it to linger. Like ripping off a bandage, it was best to do it quickly and get past the pain quickly. "Don't worry. As far as I know, only I know your secret. And it's because of my secret."

Crystal dropped her fork and regarded her roommate with a combination of surprise, shock, and confusion. In a quiet voice she said, “Uh, I haven’t worn a pink leotard since elementary school.” She paused for a moment, then picking up another forkful of food she stated confidently “I mean yeah, we all have secrets. But that’s everybody, chica.”

With a calm curiousity Crystal asked, “What do you mean you know about my secret because of your secret? I have a few secrets, a pink leotard isn’t one of them. But I am willing to listen to yours if you want to share."

Underneath her expressed confidence, Crystal was still confused and more than a little worried.

Laurene smirked as she thought, "Oh, is this how we're going to play it?"

She put down her fork and finished chewing. "If I told you, you wouldn't believe me. But to show you could be... awkward. At best. At worst, you could hate me." She leaned back and let the luchadora chew on that for a while.

Crystal continued to consume her breakfast, pausing to take a drink from her own glass of orange juice. After swallowing a decent sized mouthful she looked couriously at her roommate.  "Are you sure you know what I would believe from you if you told me, chica? An if you are sure showing might make me hateful, then please in God's name don't show me." she gently pleaded.

"I might try to guess, but that wouldn't be fair because I would probably insult you and be wrong at the same time. An that wouldn't be nice." Crystal continued thoughtfully.

"So, are you going to tell me sometime or should I just finish my breakfast and lets go to class?" she asked with a playful grin.

"Alright then," Laurene said as she put down her fork, wiped her mouth, and stared at her roommate. "I can read your emotions. I know how your brain feels and a certain kick-ass, pink-clad luchadora had the same feeling." She stood up and slowly approached Crystal with a mischievous smirk. "But that's easier said than proven. Do you believe me or should I go to demonstration phase?"

"Oh really?" Crystal replied with a combination of curiosity and a twinge of doubt. "So how does my brain feel? In what way does my brain feel like this luchadora's brain?" As Laurene approached Crystal, the Latina stood in a defensive stance. "Hey, you're the one that said that showing me this power or whatever it is might make me hate you. If you really believe I am an ass kicking luchadora, then wouldn't it be a bad idea to piss me off. Eh, Chica?"

Finishing off the last of her food, Crystal looked directly into Laurene's eyes, "I can believe you believe that you have some kind of psycho-empathic power or such. Now about me and this luchadora. A lucha mask is a symbol of strength and power worn by noble warriors that goes back to Aztec and Mayan times. It is the visible image of a persona that marks her as a hero of the people."

"Yes, yes it is," Laurene replied. "And sexy too..." she purred as she projected out wave of heat, directed right at the latina's sex drive and slicing right through any Catholic inhibitions against it.

OOC: If you want to do this mechanically, give a DC 18 Will Save. She'll have to make this save every round so long as Laurene is concentrating on making Crystal want her.

In reply to Laurene Watson (msg # 18):

In one instant Crystal went from feeling slightly defensive and curious about Laurene's statements, to feeling a nearly overwhelming wave of pure desire for her rooommate. Forcefully closing her eyes, her hands curled into fists, Crystal’s body vibrated with tension as she fought to control herself. The guilty part of her memory remembered when she briefly thought about Laurene or another girl in a sexual way only to have such thoughts immediately suppressed by the twin cannons of tradition and family. But those brief moments of desire were never as powerful as what she was feeling now. Now it was taking all of her thought and concentration not to simply take the other girl into her arms.

"Fight it, you don't really want this! Not like this! Never like this! We are strong and we can win and be our own true self. This will not dominate us." she thought desperately.


“If you are doing this, stop it now!” Crystal said through clenched teeth as she slowly opened her eyes and stared at Laurene with desire and growing fury. “Because as much as I want to be near you now, it isn’t good and you might not like it when I am.”

Laurene sighed and stepped back. She felt not only that Crystal was starting to feel the way she had intended, but that it was really upsetting her roommate. So she let it drop.

"I'm sorry," she said almost meekly. "There was no better way to prove it to you. I hope you aren't angry."

"Angry? Why would I be angry? Its not like I have problems with lesbian feelings or nothing, right? I mean its not like I have to worry about my soul because you made me feel like that? No, not angry. I'm effin furious!" Crystal replied in a pained voice, her body shaking and her eyes brimming with tears.

"Couldn't you just given me the munchies or make me sleepy or something like that? Why lust Laurene?" she asked with a wounded voice with tears slowing flowing down her face.

"Because we're having breakfast in the morning? I'm sleepy with the munchies now. And horny. I needed something unambiguous. Besides, those aren't really emotions." She shook her head. "And it's that self-righteous Catholic guilt bullshit that gave you away. Now that I've shared my secret with you, can you do me the courtesy of admitting you are Transpower? Or is the sin of lying okay?

Crystal gathered herself while listening to Laurene's explaination. Not exactly sure how to respond she simply cleared the table and placed all the used tableware into the dishwashwer.

Turning back to face her roommate she put her hands on her hips and replied, "First, I am not here to help you deal with being horny. Second, my faith is important to me and to call it bullshit is to disrespect me and my family. Third, through my faith and my works my sins are all forgiven. Fourth, I am not Transpower. This is the truth. Transpower is a luchadora, a hero. I am a student athlete and sometimes a mechanic."

"Really? Maybe you don't know," Laurene said with a cocked head, bypassing the painful discussion that preceded her last comment. That would be discussion for another time once they were able to separate Laurene's clear-and-intentional violation of Crystal's mind space from the implicit homophobia in her statements. "Because something isn't making sense."

"Really? Have you been listening? I told you before you used your power on me, who and what Transpower is. I mean no disrespect but maybe your mind is more clouded by lust than you realize. Also, I want an apology for your disrespect of my faith before we speak any more."

Crystal paused looking at Laurene expectantly.
