Fade In…

Kara makes for quite a sight, a strikingly gorgeous blonde, toned slim body, crystal blue eyes. She has the prospect required to be a supermodel, and then there's the crushing non-existing fashion sense of her mish-mash of a wardrobe that makes for quite an unfortunate sight. Either way, she seems comfortable enough with her choice of attire. Right now she's standing outside the Empire State Building, looking directly up, "wow! This one is tall!" She informs no one in particular.

*

Walking along after having returned from going over to Xavier's, Monet looks at her phone and frowns as she looks through various things. She finally just shakes her head and looks up. Her phone being locked as it slides into her pocket and the ice cream in her right hand comes up to her mouth for a lick. She slowly removes a bit of cream off of it and mms slightly. Her eyes finally fully focus on Kara right in front of her and she blinks, "What?" She looks up, having heard the girl's words and then looking back down, "Yes, it is."

OH right, Monet thinks to herself, the dumb blonde. She smiles a little and then steps up closer to Kara to further tease the poor girl and says, "Thought more about my offer? I can still go get my blanket." She grins and nods.

*

Jason is just walking through the streets as…well, himself. Just under the alias of Jason. that's it. last name Willowby. he sees Kara looking directly up at the ESB…giving her a curious look. "Yep. one of the tallest in the world." then he looks to Monet. "ah, didn't know you had company. I can take off if ya want."

*

Kara wasn't expecting to run into Monet again so soon after their somewhat awkward first meeting in Central Park, the voice, however, she recognizes immediately as she lowers her gaze from the building's height and shifts it to Monet. "Oh, hi!" She greets with a beaming smile, "you were…Monet St. Croix, right?" Apparently she's good with recalling names. "your offer?" Less so about recalling offers it seems. "Do you put your blanket anywhere?" Kara asks curiously, noting the distinct lack of blankets sprawled out across the street.

"Is it!?" Kara's attention is stolen by Jason, "so if I'd go around the world, I wouldn't find too many taller than this one? That's amazing! I'm like, right next to it! And it's a special place!"

*

A look over to Jason and Monet frowns at him a little, "It's not even in the top ten anymore." She states and looks over at Kara, "And you really…keep up with things, don't ya?" She asks and then pats Kara lightly on the shoulder, "Sorry to burst your bubble but it is more like the 39th tallest building in the world." She then shrugs, "Which I suppose is still a feet." She looks then back down to Jason and nods to him, "Hello, I'm Monet St. Croix, as she said, and you are?" There's a slight…defensiveness to her tone. Though it appears almost she's being defensive on behalf of Kara not on behalf of herself.

*

A look is given to Kara as she seems a little…..too excited. Jason gives her a once over and he tilts his had. "..you're not from around here are you? New york I mean. country girl?" he asks her curiously. Theeeeen Monet arrives to talk to Jason with a little shrug given in answer.

"never said it was in the top ten. just that its among the tallest. never gave a number." he grins lightly then. "Nice to meet you. I'm Jason. Jason Willowby." a small smile then as he puts his hands in her jacket pocket. "just an ordinary passerby."

*

course he said that last bit in a more teasing notion to Monet's defensive stance and tone.

*

"It's not…?" Kara looks disappointed to learn that fact from Monet, she was excited at the prospect of being by a special landmark. "I do? Thank you," Kara says to Monet over what she thought was a compliment? It seemed that way, Monet was rather nice in the short time she'd known her for. If there is anything that makes Monet tense up, Kara is certainly oblivious to it, as she turns to face Jason again, extending her hand in a friendly gesture (she picked up that much!), "I am Kara Danvers! Like Carol Danver, but Kara!" As if she expects just about everyone she meets to know who Carol Danvers is.

"How did you know?" Kara asks Jason, grinning mirthfully, before elaborating, "I'm actually from Kansas!"

*

A roll of her eyes and Monet throws her hands up a little before shrugging, "Good to meet you, Jason." She nods her head, "We weren't really meeting here, you aren't interrupting." She then looks over and quickly takes a bite of her ice cream, taking most of the top off and frowning as it had almost metled over her hand. She then looks back over to Kara for a moment, "I assume you have been well, Kara?" She hmms and peers at her before looking to Jason, "And what brings you passing by, Mr. Passer by?"

*

a tilt of his head thn for Kara as Jason looks her over. Well, she was drop dead gorgeous, but she was a little…naive? out of place? Either way. When he hears she's from Kansas, he smiles softly. "Always wanted to go to Kansas. I hear it's quiet there, by comparison to New York. sounds nice." he offers a warm smile before he tilts his head. "dunno who Carol Danvers is, but sounds friendly?" he says, trying to be polite. something to look up later.

Then he looks to Monet, a chuckle then. either way, he shrugs. "I was actually just going to snag som grub when I caught Kara here looking at the good ole ESB." Empire State Building. "Other than that? well, you know the story already. got to chatting."

*

"I have been well, Monet, how did you know?" Kara asks, looking awed by Monet's psychic talents, not realizing that it's more likely than not that she's been okay.

"It has farms!" Kara explains to Jason, highlighting one immediate difference. "Have you ever been on a farm? It's pretty! And the animals are so cute!" Kara does look surprised when Jason doesn't know Carol Danvers, and then turns to look at Monet, "do you know Carol Danvers?" She then corrects Jason, "I wasn't looking at ESB, I was looking at this tall building, I was trying to look at it's roof!"

*

"Kara, the ESB is short for the Empire State Building. That is the Empire State Building." She nods her head at the building and then looks back at Kara with a sigh and a smile, "And actually I don't know Carol Danvers." She smiles softly before saying, "Either way, it's fine." She nods her head, "Not everyone knows everyone." SHe pats Kara on the shoulder, "It's just the way of things." She then looks over at Jason and nods, "Well, that's a plan I suppose." She nods her head, "Did you want some food, Kara?" She looks to the girl.

*

Jason looks like hes about to correct Kara about what ESB means but Monet beats himt to it! he givs her an appreciative nod, before he looks at Kara again with a smile. "I've never been on one, no. never needed to, I guess. sounds peaceful." he knows his war as the Hood isn't over yet….so he needs to stay in the area." a look then to Monet.

"If you like, I can just buy you ladies food. fight as wel, right?" a friendly smile then. "up to you though."

*

Kara looks back at the tall building, and realization dawns, "oooh! I get it! ESB is a name! For the building! Cool." She then turns to look from Jason at Monet, and a wide grin spreads on her face, "so that makes me the most famous Danvers you know! Huh? Cool!"

"You want to buy me food?" Kara looks touched, as if it was a grand gesture, "that's awful nice of you, Jason! We've only just met, how do you know I deserve a tribute of food?"

*

A look at Kara and she just stares blankly before looking down and shaking her head, "Wow, Kansas Girls are Easy." She chuckles a little before looking over at Jason and stating, "Yeah, food is fine. You may buy me food." Though the way she says it, it sounds almost like she's allowing him a grand honor. She nods her head, "Lead the way." She gestures, "You are buying so you need to find it."

*

Jason looks at Kara then, chuckling a moment. His money is either on alien or terribly naive. Either way…she's fun! He nods a few times to Kara as she asks her queston. "Sure. I wouldn't mind the company either. I know a good restaurant just down the street from here." he points that direction too. "Well..I just figured that.." then Monet speaks, and he just shakes his had with a smile. "alright, guess I'm leading." and he turns on his heel to walk, signalling them to follow.

He walks a few minutes down the way until they come up on a little 90's looking burger joint. "this work?"

*

"Why are you saying I'm easy…?" Kara asks as she turns her head sharply to look at Monet, her blonde locks flicking over her shoulder from the quick movement of her head. She then goes to follow Monet and Jason, looking like she still hasn't quite made up her mind of what to make of Monet calling her easy. In a way it seemed ridiculous, because 'hard' or 'easy' were hardly quanitfiers for people!

*

A nod to Jason and she states, "Sure." She nods to him before looking at the place they are taken to and her eye twitches a moment, "Umm, sure." She states and nods her head, unsure of this place. She turns her gaze over to Kara and is about to worry the girl might know what easy means until she notices how the girl is looking at her and realizes she doesn't. She then licks her lips softly before patting Kara, "It's ok, it's a movie." She nods her head and then looks at the restaurant, "WEll, we might as well go in."

*

Jason looks to Kara softly with a kind smile at her attitude before looking on over to Monet with a small smile. "Might as well." and he opens the door for the ladies. turns out it's an entirely honest establishment with a waitress meeting them almost immeidately to sit them down at a nice booth. THe menus were simple! Cheeseburgers, hot dogs, pancakes even. a real nice hole in the wall.

*

"Kansas Girls Are Easy? Is it a good movie?" Kara asks, curious, perhaps she could learn more about Kansas if she were to watch that movie? So far she was lucky enough not to meet others who have been to Kansas. "I haven't been to a restaurant in New York before," Kara muses aloud, as she follows Monet, "what do you think I should get?"

*

A look over at Jason and she looks at the menu before letting out a soft breath, "This ought to be an adventure." She nods her head, "Oh lovely American cuisine I imagine." She looks to Kara before saying, "I'll…we'll talk about euphimisms later." SHe nods her head before she looks down at the menu and then says, "I'll try their hamburger." She then looks over at her and nods, "You should probably do the same. I'm sure it'll be at least decent." She then looks up at Jason, "So, what do you do, passer by, Jason?"

*

A look then for Kara as Jason smiles. "The food here is really good actually. I think you'll like it." a nod then, before he looks over to Monet "good choice." he says as to her choice of meal. "Don't like a good pairing of cheeseburgers and fries?" he winks at her before he answers what he does for a livin'. "I mainly work around. Normally I'm a mail carrier. Ride a bike through the city and drop off packages." he shrugs. good cover/alibi

*

"Euphimism?" Kara looks at Monet all wide eyed, "I don't know him, is he your friend? I think it's best not to talk about people behind their backs, that's rude!" She advises Monet, just to make sure she understand it's best to avoid gossiping. "Okay," Kara takes Monet's advise, and proceeds to stand up at the table and announce to the whole restaurant, "I will have the hamburger!"
