There was a long exhale of breath from Pogue when letting his right hand trail through his hair to push it out of his face. As much as he enjoyed it, it was probably silly to live in this fantasy that there was no chance Chase was alive given the circumstances.
"Caleb? Tyler? What'do they think?" In the long run, did it even matter?
"Hell do you think I'm takingh a survey? What will that do. I just want him dead. And we gotta expect the unexpected to get that. Don't tell me you've forgotten the books rules, buddy."
"The book actually had rules huh? Wow.. Really has been a while since I looked at it." Pogue ran his hand over his face and shook his head. Soon he was standing to his feet and once again ruffling Reid's hair with his right hand. "Now that I got more things to worry about because of you." His sarcasm was obvious, despite knowing how serious the information was to be brought to his attention and snap him out of that 'Chase is gone for good' fantasy he wanted to live in.
Ah well, back to reality.
Reid rolled his eyes but didn't pull away from the familiar feeling of having his blond hair ruffled by Pogue, again.
"I wish things stayed the same, y'know." Reid admitted. He did. He wished they were still little. Running around that camp, that summer, laughing and joking and just thinking HEY WHAT THE HELL! If I have powers the world can kiss MY ass!
Course that hadn't lasted long...
"Why do things change..."
Pogue only shook his head to state "Because people change, Reid." Finally standing to his feet with a yawn while stretching his arms high above his head. "Chase possibly being alive.. definitely food for thought...Ergh.. I'm gonna go stop by Caleb's place, you all right for now man?"
Reid rolled his eyes. He was just about to laugh at the fact that he and Pogue were actually having a serious conversation. "Yeah, whatever. People don't have to change. Hell, I haven't." He got up and watched Pogue head to the door.
"What gonna just leave? Leave me alone?" Reid pouted and smirked. "Course I know Caleb and you got a lot of catching up to do...Since you don't have Ty and Me around to break up your lovey dovey moments." Reid smirked. Success. Gay Joke initiated. He thought smirking.
"Anyway. I think I'll take it upon myself to come with you. See good old Caleb. Y'know? Don't worry. I'll stand outside and wait for your serious conversing to be over." Reid picked up his jacket and threw it on. He looked around the room.
"Seen my black cargos?"
There was laughter from Pogue when he heard Reid's comments. "Well, did you leave em' at Taylor's?" Yes, even Pogue had his moments where he could be sarcastic and crack a joke or two.
With an arrogant smirk he stuffed his hands into the pockets of his jacket, tapping his index finger at the fabric within. "I don't even care if you go in your boxers, just hurry it up will ya? Heh."
Reid sent Pogue an awkward look. "Please don't say that EVER again. You're the last guy I want to get hit on by..." Reid finally found them under his bed. He quickly pulled them on and noted the light blink of his cell.
"We should call him before hand y'know?"
"Nah, I was actually goin' for the whole surprise effect. I only saw him for a hot second down at that Thanksgiving party. Besides, it' not like we'll catch him with his hands in his pants, he's not you Reid."
There was another chuckle from Pogue before he nudged his head over to the door and stuffed his hands down in his pockets. "Les' go."
Reid stuck his tounge out at Pogue. "Hey. At least I'm getting some, buddy. Where IS Kate?"
He walked to the door and opened it then motioned for Pogue to go before him. "Beasts before beauties."
Letting out a chuckle, Pogue would shake his head and follow him out the door. His question raising a rather important issue that the boy himself had been dealing with lately.
Right.. Where is Kate..? And with all this talk of Chase possibly not being dead... No.. Not gonna jump to conclusions yet..But I swear to God if something's happened to her, I'll make sure he doesn't come back this time.. And avoid riding my bike if I do come into contact with him..
Soon his focus went back to Reid while walking down the dorm hall.
