Mitch frowned. "That doesn't seem like a situation that... I mean, why wouldn't she... I mean, um..."

He'd been going to ask why she didn't use protection, but considering that night was the conception of the boy in front of him, it seemed a bit mean to say that.

"Er... get his number, or something? I mean, didn't she have a phone?"

He cringed at his own question. It was unintentional, but he'd just implied that Joel's mother had been too poor to afford a phone.

"She was drunk and completely strung out, I just told you all she could remember of him was that he whispered beautiful cantonese to her remember? She doesn't even remember his face" he smiled quietly. "She says she never regretted what happened and doesn't mind that he doesn't know, she never even got his name, he's merely a sweet memory to her"

This conversation was getting very awkward now. Mitch needed something else to talk about, since this was obviously an emotional topic for Joel. He chewed his lip, trying to come up with something else to say.

"So, um, I'm hungry. You?" He didn't bother waiting for a response, he instead put his hand on the younger boy's shoulder and wheeled him out of the art room. The goblin, forgotten in the cupboard returned to its inanimate state. "Hope the canteen's still open," he said, trying to blithely ignore the tension of previous topics.

They walked to the cafeteria, grabbed some food for a late lunch and sat down. On Mitch's tray was just about everything on the school's menu that was unhealthy and almost nothing that was good for a growing boy. Mitch sat with his back to the rest of the room. Joel was taking up more than enough of his attention right now, he didn't need anyone else overloading his head.

"So... who've... uh..." he really wasn't good at this small talk thing. It didn't work right, in his head. It was what he couldn't get to work in the scripts that he wrote; the conversations wouldn't flow properly.

"So who else is on your team?" It was an easy question, to ask and answer. It was a safe bet that his ISC squad was something Joel could talk about without too much seriousness weighing them down.

"Qi, Red Shadow, Capp, and Dragon Star" Joel said "Qi is the leader and the only girl, Capp is that dark skinned kid, he is skilled in capoeira but is pretty shy. Red Shadow usually keeps to himself. Dragon Star is that handsome young man that you probably seen with his boyfriend Lizard Lad from Feral Force, his powers of telepathy and empathy come in handy in our battles"

Mitch nodded at the list of team members and the descriptions of them.

"Capo-era?" He asked, mispronouncing the name of the martial art as he hadn't heard it before. "What's that? Is it, like, a special type of Kung Fu or something?"

"Not at all it is a Brazilian martial art that resembles dancing" Joel explained

"Resembles dancing?" Mitch raised an eyebrow, now just more confused as to what capoeira was. "So you dance with them and then kick them in the shins or something? That sounds kinda..." he trailed off, not even really sure how it sounded. Stupid was one thing, silly was another.
