Did You Get What You Wanted?

Post by Sion Reaver on Thu Feb 12, 2015 12:43 am

It was like it always was when you encountered something new and had no experience with it; you would build it up in your mind only for things to be notably different once you finally got it. That was the case in Emanulle's time in Jack's dimension. To be fair there was nothing wrong with the place but something had been clawing at him from the inside since he got there. At first he thought it just the usual home sickness but it was more then that.

Something about the whole thing didn't sit right with him, and eventually he decided it was time for him and Michru to come back. The ironic part was while he had originally did it for Michru's sake, it was her that convinced him to go back. She didn't say anything about it, but it was terribly obvious she missed a lot of people here and got depressed. That had been one of the major causes for the return, along with the feeling he had..unfinished business here.

What it was, he didn't know. Hell he didn't even know how much time had passed here exactly as moving from dimensions had odd time snaps. Emanulle could have been a day gone or much longer.

Besides his family, Jack and some of his crew he didn't think his presence would be missed by much. It was childish and silly he knew intellctually but it was a insecurity he had developed through to his experiences in life when he was younger. The memories of people he once thought friends callously tossing him aside for their own reasons. As if all the things they had been through didn't matter in the end.

If asked if death or not even being remembered when he passed was more terrifying; he'd choose the later every time.

Only thing he did know for sure; he was going to give Jack's idea one final try.

It was only the few days that Jack said he would need, that Emanulle and Michru were gone for. Jack had to admit, he was greatly disappointed about Emanulle's decision. Raising his daughter and teaching her to use her powers in a world full of super heroes was the most logical move one could possibly take!

Still, while he didn't agree with Emanulle's decision, he respected it and brought the two of them back to this world. He collected the S.U.P.C.D.H. from Emanulle "I guess I had better tell Mickey to cancel those other Start Up Packs." he says "Welcome home." he says as he takes to the air and heads back to the shop, having dropped Emanulle and Michru off at Terra's.

Emanulle knocked on the door but was surprised it wasn't Terra or Damon but Monica who instantly hugged both of them before they stepped back in. "Welcome back you two. We have a lot of catching up to do eh? Come on in."

Back at the Osa-P Jewelry store, Jack comes walking in and heads to the back room, tossing down the shoebox looking device. Mondo glances over to him "He got cold feet I take it?" he asks.

Jack nods "Something like that. He decided that it was best to not leave his roots behind. Besides, he already has a life here and trying to make a new one from scratch, well, isn't really for everyone and some might even be intimidated by it." he says.

Mondo nods "So...I take it you're a bit disappointed." he says, still watching TV.

Jack nods again "A little, yeah. But, it's Manny's decision and I'll respect it, even if I may not agree with it. He's the one who knows what's best for Michru, not me. If he believes that she's better off here, then we must accept that and try our best to help if he needs us." Jack states.

Some time later after catching up with Monica, Terra and Damon some more Emanulle decided to head to the shop. From there he could talk to Jack and the others, if they were there anyway.

Mondo was at the shop, of course, in the back room as always. But it was late, so the shop was closed for the day. Jack had gone up to the second floor and Alice was in her room in the base. Marcen was nowhere to be seen, naturally.

'Figures. I don't want to bother anyone this late anyway so guess tomorrow.'

Emanulle then headed back home, but he wasn't in a particular hurry. It had been too long since he just been out and about and with him being gone the old sights just seemed that much more fresh.

"So, you changed your mind, huh?" Marcen asks. He was hanging upside down on a light pole "If I may ask, what brought on the change of heart?" he asks as he jumps down.

Emanulle was actually a bit startled but he hid it well. "..You're going to give me a heart attack one day sneaking up on me like that but its my fault."

He turned to Macen. "It was mainly Michru. She was horribly depressed while over there because she missed many of the people here. That and..as strange as it sounds I almost felt like I was running away. I got the feeling of unfinished business since I got there. It feels as if I didn't go through with this, I'd regret it in older age looking back. I decided I was going to take up that first offer, about rejoining on the team anyway."

Marcen listens in silence and nods slowly "I have no problem with you rejoining, but ultimately it's up to Jack. Also, Mondo might say something about it, so be prepared tomorrow." he cautions "If you like, I can let Jack know ahead of time. That way he can come to a decision without any distractions from his old teammate." he offers.

Emanulle nodded a bit. "That's fine, so go ahead. I guess I'll catch you and the others tomorrow. Take care out there."

He left after that back home after a bit longer, sleep would come easy enough on its own after.

As sure as the Earth revolves around the Sun and the Moon around the Earth, night turned to day and the Osa-P Jewelry store was open for business as usual. Inside was the usual assortment of people. Jack at the counter, Alice cleaning, Mondo in the back on his ass watching TV and Marcen was nowhere to be found, as usual.

Emanulle was feeling rather well rested for the day and after taking care of things headed to the shop. Monica was actually staying around for a bit(for now but who knows) and since she wanted to get to spend time with niece even more it was a pretty good excuse on her end as as any.

He didn't know what would happen when he got there, but he'd keep a open mind. It was never a good idea to put all your eggs in one basket, as he learned during multiple different times.

Jack looks up from his paper "Hey Manny. Marcen spoke with me last night." he says, letting Emanulle know that he knew why he was here "I have no problem with it. Everyone deserves a second chance. But make no mistake, there will not be a third. If you bail on us again, it's for good." he says

Then he walks around the counter "If we understand each other, let me show you to your new room. You can bring Michru along anytime you're ready." he says as he heads to the back room.

Emanulle went to follow Jack. "Thank for letting me stay." He had never been in any of the rooms so he had no idea what they were like but he'd find out. Plus all the rooms were likely different from the other anyway. Once he was done with things here, he'd bring Michru with him as well.

"Also, I was thinking of something. Maybe it would be better to use a different method in recruiting people. For example, you have the Hunters which have their own way of finding people, and considering how dangerous it is they must be doing something right to have enough people for a organization. In advertising, its all how things are said and look. When people hear the word super hero, I don't think many in this dimension will take it seriously." He shrugged. "Just my two cents. This your baby after all."

Jack nods "Yeah. I have a feeling that I'm going about this all wrong as well." he says "Judging from the two we had show up before Marcen, that is. I wonder how the Hunters find their people." he asks, more to himself then anyone.

That was another thing they had to watch out for. The Hunters. It was only a matter of time before their two paths crossed. He wasn't looking forward to that day.

He stops and punches in a code "Here ya go. It's not the greatest or the biggest, but it's comfy." he says as he hands Emanulle a card "This is your identa-card. You can use it to gain access to the bases other facilities as well as lock and unlock your room." he says.

Emanulle took the card, putting it away. "One other thing to think about is the legal matters. Damon, my aunt's husband is a former Hunter which is why I have a bit more information on average. Far as I know, Hunters have actual ties with the government. We don't. In fact going about things we'll be branded as vigilantes so its something else to think about."

"That said, if you were recruiting someone and they were pondering being a Hunter and this, if they asked what would be the main differences be? This is important; it also may be what's needed for tapping into the demographics." It was obvious he had put a lot of thought into things while he was thinking.

Jack nods "That's something to think about. Thank you." he says "I'll see you at the shop." he says as he heads on out "If you have any question, ask Buddy." he calls back.

Emanulle looked around a bit longer before leaving the room for now. "Hey Buddy, are you there?"

"Of course I'm here. I'm the bases Artificial Intelligence program. It's not like I can go anywhere." the computer says. "So, how can I help you today?" it asks.

He nodded slightly. "Quick question before I go, where is the training area and how does it work? Is it like some of holo program similar to back home or just some desginated area?"

"Follow the light on the floor." Buddy says as a blue light winks on the floor. It starts off, leading Emanulle to what looks like a Star Trek: TNG cargo door. The door opens and inside was someone who looks a lot like Commander Data from Star Trek as well "This is the training room. Commonly called 'The Danger Room'!" he says.

The room, in question, was empty. It had a strange grid pattern all over and Buddy nods "Yes, before you ask, Mondo is a fan of Star Trek, hence my appearance and several factors as well." he explains "Also, as you may have guessed, this is a holodeck, just like on Star Trek." he mumbles.

"Well, I'm off, if you need me, feel free to call me name and I shall be there." he says as his form shimmers and disappears.

It was pretty useful to know, though Emanulle had no interest in using the Holo Deck for now. If it worked just like Star Trek, then Mondo must have Really known their stuff since even Alus hadn't gotten one to work as well as the one from the show as there was still limitations.

'Holo Addiction' could also be actual real thing and it wasn't something he wanted to test. He didn't think it would be a problem but who knows.

After that he left the back of the base, he was done exporing it for now

"Settling in to your new accommodations?' Marcen asks "Each wall panel can bring up a map of the base. It's pretty big." he says "But for the most part, everything is organized by deck." he points out.

"So its bigger then I thought. If I didn't know any better, I would think they were hosting a lot more people then just a small specialized team.
" Emanulle said to Macen. "I do like things so far but I've always been pretty easy about things so it doesnt' take much for me."
