    Rory stepped outside and looked around until she saw the filter of smoke coming from Broen's cigarette. There was definitely a story behind this 'animals were assholes' comment, but she figured Broen wouldn't appreciate her asking. He was the kind of guy who liked emotional distance from people and the type of guy who didn't appreciate others prodding him much.

    Instead, she had a way to take his mind off things, but first, "mind sharing?" she asked motioning to his cigarette. "I'll pay you back."

    Broen quirked an eyebrow as Rory approached, giving her a small smirk and shrugging. "You really can't stay away from me, huh? One day, rat girl, you're gonna wake up in my bed. One day..."

    But regardless he flicked another cigarette out of the box and handed it over with his lighter. He took a long drag off his own cigarette and grimaced at it. "It's barely doing anything for me. One of the shitty things about this power set."

    "So what's up? You don't ever come talk to me unless you've got something you wanna ask. Get it over with. I got no time for banter."

    "Nah," she told him taking the offered cigarette and simply holding it. "I ask you questions because I like talking to you."

    And because it was easier than coming up with some thinly veiled lie, Rory went for the truth. "I came out to check on you. You seemed... upset. And because I knew that wouldn't fucking work out well, I was just going to distract you with powers changing. Yay." She lifted a hand and wiggled her fingers at him.

    "Changing, huh? Well..." Broen looked at his cigarette and frowned before just throwing it away. "Well, I'm fine. Just thinking I've got some business to take care of."

    He paused, considering something. Then grinned at Rory. "Powers changing, huh? Wanna test them out? It'll be fun."

    "Wow, it's almost like we're friends." And Rory eyed him somewhat suspiciously as she tried to figure out exactly what he had planned. "Alright, I'll bite. What did you have in mind?"

    "Some drug dealers. Part of a gang giving my boss shit. I'm gonna go, eh, ya know."

    Broen's grin widened, showing some teeth. He'd put together what amounted to a new costume and he had his bitchin' new helmet. "It'll be like old times. Valiant and Adrastia, eh?"

    "Go bigger. Go bolder. Go Paragon." Rory responded, already getting up. Somewhat awkwardly, she held the untouched cigarette back out to him. "I'm already awkward enough with people, I don't need to pair up with a selective mute."

    Then. "Let's fucking doing it." And "Don't tell Jude."

    Because Rory really didn't want to be given a look about running around playing vigilante. She knew it wasn't the same as back home, but it felt the same. It felt good. A little taste of home. Even if that was teaming up with fucking Paragon. Which was wild.

    "Bitchin'," Broen said, grabbing Adrastia by the hand. Dragging her along, he planned a route to the bus stop. "So what can you do now? I have guesses, but I wanna hear."

    He was excited, in a way. Much as he hated to admit it, he loved putting on a costume and bashing heads. Didn't matter whose, really. He missed it, even if just thinking that even to himself made him queasy.

    It shouldn't have surprised Rory when Broen grabbed her hand and dragged her along with him. He sounded as excited as she felt.

    "For one the regeneration and rat control boosted. Regeneration more than the rodent control." And then they were waiting for the bus. On the bus in another second. Life was moving fast. The need for a fight hot in their blood.

    "You were right about the inertia," she told him once they were on the bus. "It's not working on full yet, but I did manage to fly for five seconds."

    "Nice. Well, you'll get the chance to test it out tonight," he said as they got onto the bus. "And maybe I will too."

    Broen was mentally preparing himself for the night ahead of them. Rory still had her costume, right? No, that wouldn't be good. The Boyscout and the other Junior Woodscouts would recognize her if she got caught on camera and that pic got around at all. Maybe Sargeant Genovese too. She was living with him after all.

    "So what've you got to wear? I mean. We clearly don't want our faces seen," he said quietly. It was bullshit that you'd get in trouble for doing the cops' job here. Especially if you did it better. Bureaucracy bullshit.
