At first Ruby had been a bit confused as to why David suggested they meet up at the hotel pool. He knew she didn't swim and was generally terrified of water. But then she remembered his plan to help her overcome her fear of water. She had agreed to try but hadn't realised that it would be so soon when they did try. If anyone else but Legion
(or maybe Mr Gideon) had asked her to go near the water she would have refused. But she trusted those two and would go near the water if they thought it would help. Besides, David was her dad now, he wasn't about to let anything bad happen to her.
She took her time going down to the pool, reminding herself that it was safe. There would be people nearby if something bad happened. Which it wouldn't because she was safe with David. It wasn't like he was going to push her into the pool or anything. Right?
Still rather nervous, she headed into the area by the pool, making sure she was far away from the water. For a minute or so it, the pool itself caught her attention she gazed at it. All that water... So potentially dangerous. A shudder went through her and she went to find her parent instead of watching people splash around. Trying to act as though she was not scared, she was singing to herself as she went to her parent. I hear you calling Marian
Across the water, across the wave
I hear you calling Marian
Can you hear me calling you to
Save me, save me, save me from the
Marian, there's a weight above me
And the pressure is all too strong
To breathe deep
Breathe long and hard.
To take the water down and go to sleep....

The school was probably not going to be finished for a while, so everyone was still living at the hotel. This was good in that it was safe and comfortable, but bad in that there was little to no routine. No classes, either, but that was not so bad. At least there was no PT. Ruby was really glad about that. Physical stuff was just not her. She could practice all she wanted but might always find it hard. And that was fine by her. Being athletic was not part of being a medic, or at the very least, being very athletic wasn't. She could improve and maybe scrape by.
While classes were not happening, mentoring still was. That was good, Ruby liked spending time with Martyr
. He was a great mentor, always calm and kind and helpful and Ruby doubted that she was an easy person to mentor. Others might find him boring but Ruby liked how safe he was. There were never any nasty surprises, but usually there were interesting stories. And Mr Gideon had been the one who had gotten her a diary to try and help her express herself. Sadly the diary was now ash. She had left it at the school when they had left for Colorado as she hadn't wanted anyone to know she kept a diary. There had been nothing amazing written in it, but she liked the keep things private. Now it was gone and she was thinking about getting a new one. Maybe.
She approached the room she knew her mentor was staying in, a big bag of Cadburys chocolate buttons in one hand, and knocked. She wouldn't dream of going into someone's room without express permission. Despite all their faults, her parents had taught her some manners, even if they had never followed them.

Another night, another nightmare. At some point Ruby was going to have to find a way to deal with this. Missing out on sleep owing to nightmares was not good. She was just lucky that there were no classes going on, meaning that during the day she could have a nap if she needed to. But once the school was rebuilt, it was back to the routine. Which she was looking forward to. Routine was good. Maybe that was part of the problem, she currently lacked a routine and was really worried about the current situation, what with alien attacks and missing people, it was really no surprise.
Yet again Ruby
quietly left the room she was sharing and slipped into the hall. So far nothing had been said about her nocturnal wanderings. Either no one knew, which was unlikely, or they had more important things to worry about and figured that as she wasn't hurting anyone it was fine. Apparently that was pretty much how they were handling it before the school had been blown up. The fact that she hadn't skipped class or fallen asleep in it probably helped. She was not doing so good in PT, but that had nothing to do with her lack of sleep.
The hotel felt like a completely different place at night. So quiet and almost relaxing. Ruby wandered along the corridors, book in one hand, Draggle in the other and searched for someplace where she could calm down. They were quite high up and when she looked out of the windows she was surprised by how.... wonderful the city looked. So many lights keeping the darkness away. Strangely beautiful. It kind of reminded her of Leeds. For a while she stood there, almost lost in the view, barely aware of anything around her. Gambit

Given the recent events, it was no real surprise that Ruby was awake in the early hours of the morning. The school was gone. Blown up to help the X-men beat some alien bastards. It had been a week but the fact still felt knew. The school had been her home since August. The only place she really belonged. Somehow she just couldn't imagine it not being there. But it was gone and she was laying awake, staring at the ceiling of one very expensive hotel room. The hotel was still an intimidating place to her. So expensive and clean and there were times when she still felt that at some point, she would go near something, it would break and she would be in so much trouble.
It was times like this that she was glad that she was alone in the room. Back at the school, her roommate, Hana, lived in a robot body and therefore didn't sleep but recharged. It meant that Ruby never woke her up with her nightmares or inability to settle down to sleep. Anyone else would have gotten sick of her before long. Hell, sometimes Ruby got sick of herself.
That night, sleep was not coming very easily and even reading for a little bit didn't help. There was something so... wrong with not having a proper routine anymore. Others were likely to find routine stifling and annoying but she liked it. Knowing what was going to happen next made her feel safe.
Slipping out of bed and padding into the living area, she considered seeing if there was anything on tv, but soon discarded that idea. She was sharing a suite with Alice and didn't want to risk waking her up. Instead she gathered up a few items, her book, her DS, and a Dairy Milk bar and slipped out of the room.
There were various little common areas at the hotel, potentially there for people to just... hang out and she found one nearby and settled herself down to try and relax. Alex Goya

With the school in ruins and everyone living in the hotel, routine had simply vanished. Ruby hoped this was temporary, once things settled down maybe there would be some sort of routine in place. But for now, everything was.... messy. Sadly this was not something that Ruby liked. She liked routine, it was safe and there were no nasty surprises. Part of her had been afraid that with things the way they were she wouldn't be having tea with David like she normally did. She loved having tea with him. To her it was the best part of the week, and was even better now that the adoption was official.
It had been a relief when she had found out tea was still happening. Even better when she was told it was not going to be in the room he was currently living in. Now that she was sharing a room with more than just Hana, she was trying not to get in anyone's way. Granted suite was big enough, but she was not aiming to make enemies there.
It was getting up for 3.30pm when she made it to David's room and knocked on the door. With all that had happened, she needed some time with her new parent to just unwind and talk about dumb stuff. She was grateful that she had Legion
to talk to about anything. He was the one person she could trust with anything. She had lost pretty much everything in the fire, but she still had David and that was what mattered.
"Hey, David?" she knocked on the door and waited. "I hope you haven't forgotten tea time."
