Jack: "We'll do that then. See if we can get our schedules lined up like that, maybe on a Wednesday or so. Some Wednesday's Axel parks himself in front of that T.V. screen and he hasn't in awhile so maybe that'd be the day I could worry less about him creepin' around. I'll bring it up or something and make him think about it and stay in." He nodded thinking through that plan. At mention of Sticky his smile started to grow abnormally large. He shifted his eyes around for a moment before leaning in low to Dove. "You know...Sticky was with a girl at the drive in tonight. He walked a "friend" of his home." Jack winked in addition, but he knew she knew what he meant. "He looked pretty sick...actually came and /asked/ me for permission to take 'er home. That's a first in many books."
Dove: nodded at the idea of trying to work their scheduling out. "The girl who puts them together each week owes me one so I'll see what I can do. I'll find a way to not make it so obvious but I have a feeling at least half of them there at least suspect something is going on between us a little bit and if not..well, they are a lot dumber than I feared." A sip of tea was taken as he talked about how he could try and make sure Axel wasn't out getting into trouble while he was gone and she felt bad again, wishing he didn't have so many things to worry about. Wished that every single worry in him were ones a boy his age was supposed to have, not the ones he shouldn't be worrying about for at least another ten to fifteen years. "Maybe Ace would help you with him? Maybe he could make up some reason for Axel to stick close to him? Suit meeting? I don't know just something to help you out a bit. Let you have at least one night where you don't have to stress about all of them..." Trailing off, her gaze slipped down a bit. She always felt like she was intruding in a place she shouldn't when she tried getting him to try and push more onto the boys to get a bit of the weight off of his own shoulders. Always felt like it wasn't her place to say that they needed to help him. Her eyes returned to his however when he mentioned Sticky and a girl. "Really?" She asked, her shock clear in her tone and her wide eyes as she leaned forward a bit. "Love sick?" She asked with an arch of her eyebrow. "Little Sticky's growing up. Do we know her? Does she go to our school? Have you met her? Do you--" Cutting herself off she made a face. "Sorry." She laughed with a shake of her head. "I guess I just would hate to have him get messed up in something we don't know about and wind up hurt."
