It was a soft twitch at first, a finger or two, then a whole limb as a man wearing varying shades of brown stood up with a half-stifled yawn. Pulling a cigarette from his front pocket he stuffed int in his mouth, grabbed a match and struck it against the red brick he propped himself against before setting the tip of the cigarette aglow with red embers. A sharp inhale saw the cherry tip brighten before he pushed a lungful of smoke into the air and walked off down the street. He was in a surprisingly.....irritated mood after finding out this was his last smoke for now. Plus, the sound of fighting didn't do nothing to alleviate his attitude.

However, that alleviation was about to come swiftly and maybe with blood.

What he saw when she stepped around that corner, were two men bullying a slightly smaller girl. By slightly, he really saw two massive hulking piles of meat getting ready to pound a smaller girl into paste. She was cute too and well, Ethan was already in a bad mood as it was, so he could probably take some of the edge off with a little pain. He had closed the gap quickly and quietly, before jabbing the guy in the side a few times. "Hey bruno, mind lettin the girl go?" That of course, wasn't the bouncers name, but her certainly did look like a bruno or maybe a brock.

"Last I checked, hitting girls is....well, a relatively big no no. So shove off fatso, cause I'm in a bad mood and as much as I'd love to beat you across the head with my hands, I don't want to get your stupid all over my jacket." Taking another large inhalation of the acrid, biting smoke, he exhaled it right in the guys face. "That is to say, you probably don't have the intelligence to beat a rock in a staring content."

Ethan had obviously woken up on the wrong side of the bed, had no more smokes, and to top it off, some cute goth girl was in danger of getting her head punched in. Now, Ethan wasn't no charity worker but even still, this was a good chance for him to work off some steam, and maybe get some more cigs in the process. "So how about it lard fat, wanna try me instead?"

Well, they didn't seem to want to cooperate in a rather peaceful manner. Good, gave Ethan more of a reason to work his fists. Grabbing the man by the wrist, he gave it a sharp twist, his small frame belying a rather impressive amount of strength for someone that looked akin to a string bean. His other fist was pulled back and balled up into a fist as electricity arced across his hands. His first victim blocked it from the rest, but he had gotten a good eyeful of the twisting, writhing arc of electricity as it played across his hands.

"Didn't answer fast enough bruno now you get to take a nice, long, nap." Slamming his hand into the man's rather solid gut, he discharged a huge blast of electricity that for a lack of a better term, blew the man backwards like he had just been reamed by a mack truck. A small smile formed on his lips - listless and half-assed, it was as if he didn't have any real enthusiasm for fighting these guys. Almost, as if, this was boring.

Sadly, it was boring, boring and pointless, and it could have been easily avoided if they had enough brain to share between themselves. But that's why fights generally happen in the first place - stupidity and a lack of sense to come in out of the thunder storm.
"You want to put the girl down, or do I have to make you put her down? Clocks tickin."

Slowly, Ethan began to walk towards the second of the bouncers, his head bobbing up and down with those same, hostile looking eyes glaring at that man with such an unenthusiastic smile plastered on his face almost like he was actually enjoying this. But he wasn't enjoying it, rather, he was enjoying the thought of going to buy a fresh pack of smokes afterwards. "Tick tock, tick, tock."

Ethan looked down at her, that small quirky little unenthusiastic smile, flashing in her direction. "Being stuck in jail won't buy me any smokes, so let's head someplace else shall we?" Stifling a yawn as he walked a slight step ahead of the smaller grey skinned, pink haired girl he took one final drag from his cigarette, tossing the butt onto the ground before crushing it under heel.

"So, what brings someone to cause so much trouble in a gang infested hell hole like this one? Can't be doing it for fun, that'd be stupid," he inquired, a bit curious as to why she was here in the first place. Even if she was a meta, you normally didn't go around making random trouble for no reason. "You hungry? I got a couple protein bars in my bag. Not much but it's better then nothing," again, he inquired as he reached around into his bag, fishing out two protein bars; both of them chocolate.

The convenience store should at least be nearby, Ethan was looking forward to getting another pack of smokes, and maybe a couple more snack foods to keep his stash at the docks supplied. The only things he had to worry about down on the docks, were gang members and he had scared most of them off.

But that still didn't mean he had them all spooked. He still had to clear out the behemoths before he could call the docks home. But at least it was a good start.

The shop was up ahead, not to bad a distance covered with a brisk walking pace. "Just grab what you want when we get in the store and I can pay for it. How could he pay for it? Well, Ethan had access to a few hundred bucks of cash, stored in the wallet located in his jackets breast pocket opposite the pocket he normally stores his cigarettes.

"Just so you know, I'm Ethan," stifling another yawn, he pushed open the door as a small electric bell sounded off, signaling the owner had customers to attend to.

The owner was short, gray haired and balding, with a slowly expanding paunch at his midsection and an ear to ear smile, that one could only expect from a store in the fifties. Thankfully, the shop was well up to date on how a store should work in the new millennium. "Grab whatever you can grab and just bring it up front, and make sure to snag a few things from the freezer, I'll be paying for it all."

Ethan pointed to a package of smokes with a green label, something called Peter Jackson's kingsize with menthol filters, the man brought them down in a relative hurry and stared back at Jinx, waiting for her to finish her little... shopping spree for snacks and food.

"No problem and my place is down by the docks. Not first class but it has power, running water and heat," slapping down eighty dollars on the counter, he picked up his cigarettes with a nod before pocketing them like they were his greatest treasure in the world. "It's a bit of a walk, and it is through some gang controlled territory, but that's not going to be a problem for me."

Packing up the food and drinks in a couple bags, he looped his hands through the handles, pushed the door open and headed outside, keeping the door held ajar for Jinx.

Finally letting out a loud yawn, Ethan's smile faded from his face, returning with that ever present scowl, that looked more in tune with his eyes. "My old.....friends, if you could call them that, they called me Hawk. Now I'm not to fond of memories most of the time but if you feel like calling me Ethan or Hawk, go for it." He let out another yawn as he unwrapped his fresh batch of cigarettes, retrieving one before inhaling deeply of the menthol scent.

Popping the cigarette in his mouth, Ethan reached into his jacket as he retrieved a single match. A small, yet harsh strike against his jeans caused the match to ignite, as he brought it up behind cupped hand to the cigarette. Blowing a puff of smoke into the air, the tip of the cigarette like a glowing red cherry, Ethan let out a small sigh as he looked back at Jinx.

"Hope you don't mind snoozing on some futon mattresses I swiped last week." He had stolen quite a few things from some of the stocked, active, warehouses and moved it all into one of the older, run down places. He had cleaned it up, swept the detritus out onto the street and went about organizing the old foreman's office into a place fit for living. Like he said before, it wasn't the best, but it worked.

The sound of plastic bags rustled in the wind as Ethan kept his pace in check, always one step ahead of Jinx as he sighed to himself. She was cute, sharp witted, and she seemed to have a mean streak about her. Bad news was, she didn't live in steel city.

Well, he could always head for Jump city, it sounded far nicer than this smog infested hellhole that could give Paris island a relatively good name. In fact, he might hitch a five finger discount ride on the train back to Jump city. After all, that stuff was pretty much useless too him and he didn't plan on staying here forever. But then again, he could always come back every now and then for a quick trip.

"Eh, no I wasn't thinking anything like that. But you on the other hand, just brought it up," retorting with a small grin, "but seriously, that wasn't even on my mind." Once again, he yawned as he kept on walking, his eyes scanning the alleyways and doorways for people, his body crackling with electricity every now and then, as a clearly advertised and rather blunt warning.

"One more block, and we're at my little temporary hole in the wall," temporary, in that he could leave it and not give a flying goddamn if he ever came back which he was planning on doing sooner or later, but most likely sooner.

Still, it was nice to have company at least, company that minded their own business and kept out of his personal space. It was nice, really nice for a change and he could respect that. "So, Jump city, is it as nice as people say it is? Cause I might think about ditching this smog filled hellhole and head back on tomorrow's train."

He wasn't even joking at all, Ethan was actually considering leaving Steel city, which trust me, would be a huge improvement in the local scenery since everything around here was smog, metal, exhaust fumes and crime. It would have to be a better place to sta. Hell, Paris island was probably a better place to live then here, but he gave that up and now he was here.

"Why I came here? Well, that's easy. I wanted a change of scenery from Dakota, and Steel and Jump seemed to be the two best cities for such a change." He took another drag off the cigarette as he looked up into the night sky, the moon was once again obscured by smog, just a typically depressing Steel city night. Yeah, Jump city sounds like a far better place to hang out in.

"Well, if I start thinking about it, it's entirely not my fault short stack," he retorted with a puff of smoke into the air as he let out another frustrated sigh. Great, and she was good at teasing him, this was going to be, at least in his mind, a pretty good friendship.

Ethan sighed as he took another quick drag from his cigarette before flicking the ashes onto the street. She was cute, snappy and witty and probably taken too, which managed to goad a rather frustrated grumble from his throat as he pushed smoke from his nose. But hey, if she was taken, at least he could call her a friend and that mattered quite a bit to him as well, surprising really, finding someone he could call a friend right off the bat, it was almost too good to be true.

"I've heard of the titans and the larger scale of metahuman to human crime in jump city, but I'm less likely to wind up six feet under there if I go to sleep." At the mention of the Hive he looked at her with an odd little glance, "who's that then, the hive I mean, they certainly sound unique."

"Train sounds better then hitchhiking again, a lot better actually," grunting at the remembrance of hot stinky car seats, the occasional broken air conditioner and of course the strange.....smells that sometimes came with a ride, the train sounded far better.

"Yeah, that's where he's from originally, Dakota's got a lot of metahumans and some metahuman gangs in the worst areas." Nevermind the fact that he came from the worst area nor the fact that he was originally in a way, press ganged into working for some thugs called the spades. That was an entirely different story, one he wanted nothing to do with anymore. "That big bang incident was a major Charlie foxtrot, total fault of the police."

Excluding the odd usage of the military phonetic alphabet to utter a provocative curse word, they were at the warehouse which was pretty grungy lookin on the outside, and still looked grungy on the inside. But it was cleaner then usual at least. Thankfully, the foreman's office in the back was the cleanest spot in the place thanks to him deciding to tidy up a bit when he moved in.

There was a space heater in the corner, a small folding table with one of those mini ovens set up on top with a hot plate next to it, and a mini fridge. The fresh water came from an old sink outfitted with copper piping and well, a metal basin served as a bathtub in a matter. Thankfully, it was screened off with several privacy walls. Last thing Ethan needed, was someone walking in while he was chillin out in a warm tub of water. Awkward and dangerous, all wrapped up in one.

"So yeah, I might take the mini oven when I ditch this place. Anyone else who finds this place can have it and live like a king for all I care."

"Well, given that I'm apparently not good at nicknames, what kind of a nickname should I call you instead? Cause the only other one I can think of is kitty." he grunted as he took one final drag from the cigarette, before licking his finger tips and clasping them around the end of the cherry with a sizzling hiss before stuffing it into a small cardboard box in the corner.

"Uhhh-huh, bad guys, got it." Ethan stifled a short yawn, feigning his interesting in the H.I.V.E academy as he let a small arc of electricity dance between his finger tips. Speaking of which, it was so easy playing with electricity, almost as if it were a child's toy and he had so much of it, that he could possibly power a city block for day and a half at the most on his own. "Teaching you how to break the law. Sounds like a rip off. I joined a gang for all that. And that's the end of that tirade into my past," he grunted softly as as he pulled off his cap before brushing a hand through his military regulation length hair, before letting his head hit the mattress with a soft thud.

"Sides, school is more of a social experiment cooked up to see how well children can do in an everyday society. Frankly, it's about as useful as a sack of doorknobs," making his statement known, Ethan began to remove his jacket revealing a black tank top sitting atop an athletic body before he flipped the coat around, and wore it like a blanket.

"Hitchhiking beats paying a taxi or taking a bus and most people are generally wary of me for reasons you can possibly fathom. Well, except for the electrokinesis. I haven't used that in awhile, and the bouncer was asking for it." Propping himself up on his elbows, he looked at the food and then the oven. "Speaking of the mini oven, toss me the oven's cord and get a pizza ready, and please tell me you didn't get a pizza with olives on it. I hate olives.

The big bang, a royal grade a' charlie foxtrot to end all charlie foxtrots that would ever make prime time on the news channel. That was the main reason he turned towards crime in a fashion, they really turned an easily manageable situation into such a Snafu, that it left a pit in his stomach. If he ever found his way back in Dakota he'd have to have a chat with them about that.

Watching her scan the set up was slightly amusing to him, she was obviously impressed by his tidiness and overall thorough job of setting it up for habitability.

"I don't plan on leaving it, so yeah, what are you gonna do when you get back to Jump city anyways?" Ethan had inquired curiously, wondering just what she was going to do once she got back to her home city.

"True, but you do have rather feline esque eyes Jinx." Turning to look at her, he tilted his head to the side before focusing his attention someplace else. Absentmindedly, he reached for another cigarette, but ultimately decided against it.

Laying there for what seemed like hours, Ethan let out a small groan as he stared at the roof with no particular goal in mind. Tilting his head back towards Jinx, however, he blinked a few times and looked her square in the eyes before watching her get up and check out the small space. "Yeah, it's not that big of a deal, but at least it's a temporary homestead I can live in," he stated with a sigh before looking out the corner of his eye at her, watching her examine the small enclosure they were occupying.

"I did only marginally better than most of the kids, which is to say, not that good really," as he spoke his piece, Ethan sat up before tossing his jacket onto a stack of cardboard boxes in the corner. His hat following shortly as he looked himself over then in a rather not so obvious manner, looked her over. "Yeah, I can see what you mean by that. But then again, you could play at being a goth, since you already got the look right."

"Yeah, no problem," shrugging at her response, Ethan simply tilted his head to the side sharply. The sound of his neck cracking, stifled as it was, was still audible, turning his head to look at her, he shrugged. "Minion, slave, thrall and servant." he retorted with a slight touch of sarcasm, coupled with another of his listless smiles before catching the cord and sticking it onto his middle finger.

"Oh, it saves a ton," he fired back with a chuckle, "and the premiums are out of this world. Wait, you still go to school? College or university?" Ethan started to show a little interest in what she was talking about. "Sounds interesting regardless. I'd probably come along too if you went."

"The other mattress is over there," he spoke up, pointing towards the folding table, and the second futon by proxy, which was rolled up underneath it. "Pizza should be done in a few minutes so make yourself comfy. Well, comfier then you already are."

"If you're wondering about my smoking habit, I only bought them cause the place was open," he grunted slightly as he inhaled the wafting scent of bubbling cheese, cooked meats and veggies. Despite his laid-back attitude, Ethan was not for all intents an purposes a super nice guy. Sarcastic, cynical and overall generally irritated with how the world worked - war, crime, famine and disease and bullying, oh, that was a rich one unto itself. But for all intents and purposes that's how the human mind worked and no matter how much good a person does or did in their life, they were just as capable of doing harm.

Listening to Jinx was actually a lot better than sitting alone in silence for five or six hours. It gave him something to do, to keep the boredom away for just a little while longer, "murder, huh? or maybe suicide? The point is, the place is nice, right?" he stated abruptly, taking a deep breath as he looked at her again and sighed. "It was cheap, you took up the offer instead of looking around for something else that may or may not have been cheaper, cause nothing drives down real-estate prices like death."

Ethan shrugged. "good for you, I guess," spoken with a none too subtle hint of disinterest in his voice. "Well, you're not supposed to like school, it's meant to be boring and repetitive. As for goths, you got the dress down at least," he stated matter of factly before getting up and shuffling towards the mini-oven. Pulling the door open, he let go of the cord and pulled the pizza out, setting it down with a slight clatter on top of it's respective box. Looking over at jinx, he began to slice a couple healthy pieces out of the pie and brought them over to her on a paper plate.

"To answer your question, I can't make it cook any faster. That is, unless, you want the oven to explode. Cause I can totally cook it faster with an exploding oven," Ethan's statement dripped with sarcasm as he let out a small sigh before turning on his heel, grabbing his own two slices, and headed to his futon once again, the exhaustion he had been feeling for the last three days, finally overtaking him and causing him to hit the mattress with a thud.

"Shit, I think it's time for a long overdue snooze. Well, after I eat my slices of course," he groaned irritably as he took a bite of it, shuffling the hot chunk of pizza around his mouth without a sound. Note to self: Steal more sleep aide medications, groaning at his own thoughts he simply sighed as he focused on the more immediate thing at hand. His food.

Ethan laid there, a small expression of stoicism plastered across his face as he sighed, living was as hard as giving up, he was a testament to that philosophy and nothing could be said to ultimately change his view of that. He hated people, truthfully, he couldn't stand them, always fluttering about for their own selfish needs, a lie behind a smile, hate behind kindness. So he chose to be an out and out bastard, hurtful in truth and selfish without a second thought. But here he was, being selfless, maybe he was doing it for some company or maybe he really did want to help Jinx when she was attacked by them. Whatever the reason, he just lay there completely awake - mentally alert, with thoughts racing to and fro.

Could he call her a friend, someone to cherish and share laughs and smiles with, could he call her an enemy, someone to distrust and keep always at an arms length? He didn't know, he couldn't know and so in true Ethan esque fashion, would keep her close like a friend, but also closer, like an enemy. It was what he did best, he couldn't completely trust people, not after what happened to his brother, no, not after that. Never completely.

But that was another story for another time and Ethan finally felt some semblance of sleep enter his mind, making his eyes flutter and his brain slowly grind to a halt. Yes, Jinx could be a friend, someone to keep safe and to keep Ethan's sanity in check. He had been alone for so long, so, so long, that while he always kept a stoic, listless expression of unenthusiastic boredom on his face, just beyond that lay a coiled serpent, fangs bared and ready to inject it's insane toxicity into Ethan. No man, no matter who you may have been, can never stay alone and isolated, shutting out most emotions, without succumbing to the taint of madness. It was inconceivable and the few who have succeeded, they are truly madmen to fear.

Slowly, his eyes shut and slowly he drifted off to sleep, a soft gentle sigh escaping his lips with every breath. Yes, a friend is what Ethan needs, someone he could protect. He had failed his brother, let him die, but that was not now and Ethan could at least protect someone else.

(Short but concise and goddamn I felt in touch with my muse today.)
