Lockers


The gymnasium includes a track that rings the perimeter of the gym, treadmills, ellipticals, weight benches, dumbbells, punching bags, and pull-up bars. Mats are stacked in the back corner, and a door in the back leads to a small dojo. The lockerooms are located just before the entrance and include clean towels and showers.

He was busy bulking up his agility skills. Ever since graduating, he'd been spending a lot more time in Snake's Burrow, especially since he had yet to rent an apartment of his own. Plus, most of his necessities were here. For how often he was here, this might as well be home.

Isabella came out of literally no where and launched her body at the larger male, hoping her sure force and momentum would assist her in taking him down. Meanuvering so that she could lightly pummel the boy with her fists, Bella created not-so realistic punching sounds eith her mouth before falling into a fit of drunken giggles at how silly she was being.

Xavi raised his eyebrows, caught off guard for a small fraction of a second before a grin came on his face and he began blocking her attacks. He laughed, rolling his eyes at the sounds. "Afternoon to you too," he snickered. He crossed his arms and shook his head, though he was a wearing a big smile. "Geez, you're a handful."

The girl finally stopped peppering him with tiny punches and opted for sitting on his laying frame instead, seemingly not caring if she weighed too much or winded him. "That I am," she said it with a devious smirk, like it had more than one meaning. "What are you up to anyway? Haven't seen you in a hot minute."

"Everything, nothing, I'm transcending time and space as we speak," he mused, not thinking much of Bella lying on him. He rested his head on his arms and smirked. "Where've you been? Surely you do things too. Or are you here simply to use me as a throne?"

"Transcending time and space," she echoed with a quirked brow, "you're such a little freak. But at least you're my freak." The girl lulled over the various answers in her head before offering him an evil little grin. "We've got a prisoner in the dungeons and I've been awfully busy playing jailor."

"Aren't we the same age?" he pointed out. "Also, I'm taller than you. What part of little describes that?" He raised an eyebrow at this. He had heard about Harley, though he never bothered to go talk to him himself. He didn't find it worth the time. "Jailor, huh? Is he any fun?"

"I meant little in the sense that I have big dick energy," she mused and finally slid off of him, settling into a seated position right next to his body. "Oh, he's definitely fun. I much more enjoy drawing it out," she replied with realization. "I've come to discover a sadistic side that I buried along with my identity. Harleykinz is just helping me tap into it. Plus, he deserves it for kidnapping me." It would be like Bella to be petty enough to kidnap her captor in a cruel twist of fate.

"Please," he begged. "Never say that again. You spouting pop culture references is one of the scariest thing I've ever heard in my life." Nonetheless, he laughed at the use of the phrase and rolled his eyes. "Iconic."

Isabella snickered and moved to fall back against the gym floor, staring up at the ceiling that was lit a little too brightly to compensate for the lack of windows. Hard to have those when your entire headquarters was under the earth and hard to locate. "As usual. What have you been up to?"

"Serpent stuff, trying to find a new place to move into, wondering what I'm doing with my life, y'know, shit like that," he said, stretching out his arms. "To think just a couple of years ago, I was scared to see blood and now I see it on almost a daily basis."

Bella couldn't help but snicker at his admission because she too had gone through it but at a much younger age. With the addition of the fire that killed her brother when they were young and the redhead she massacred and continued to portray for years was enough to emotionally numb her. "My hatchling is becoming a master serpent," she commented endearingly.

"This is just like the Karate Kid movies," he snorted. "And I'm still slightly weirded out by being referred to as a snake but I'm kind of desensitized to it now." It was interesting, reflecting back on everything that happened. He used to fear Bella, hate her even, but now he's having a casual conversation with her in an underground gym for a gang he didn't even mean to join initially. How ironic.

"Never watched 'em because Hale was a dickhead," she replied with a casual shrug. "That's what we metaphorically are. Serpents are clever," she said. "Unlike the other organizations, we have periods of no visible activity. It makes it extremely hard for both the aurors and our rivals to pinpoint us." She removed her flask from beneath her leather jacket and took a swig - not like she needed it as she was already half in the bag. "You used to hate this gang. Has your thoughts changed?" she inquired before holding out the flask.

He snorted at that. He had never really gotten to know Hale. Honestly, he avoided a good majority of the Serpents members that he didn't know or feel comfortable with. Old habits die hard he supposed. "You should. Karate Kid is the real deal." He stretched his arms and shrugged. "What do you think? I'm in your gym after all," he pointed out. He glanced at the flask and raised an eyebrow. "What's that?"

"Rum," she stated without hesitation and held it out to Xavier in case he wanted a swig, smirking slightly at his curiosity. Maybe he assumed it was polyjuice? That part of her life was history. "I'm looking to entirely restart the Serpents anyway, since most of the members are gone and Blackstone, Max and Wren are essentially doing their own things outside of the gang. At this point they're more honorary members. If you're interested, I'd like for you to help me bring activity to our gang. My righthand man, if you will."

"Rum," he repeated, with a smirk. "Ingesting alcohol, I see? We can't have our leader drunk, now can we?" Nonetheless, he didn't seem to be really reprimanding her. Casual banter, as one would have it. "Restarting the gang..." he drifted off. "The ministry's a hot mess right now and there's a bunch of killers on the lose," he said. "Sounds like a great time to recruit," he eventually decided.

"Even though rum isn't her drink of choice, I've come to learn that I'm more like my mother with each passing day." She finally got up and snagged a few throwing knives from the weapon rack. In a split second, she launched them with lethal precision until a thud on the opposite side of the gym echoed from the large blue mats. The impact was enough to keep the knite tethered in place, her own hand shaking to release tension. "So you'll help me restart the gang?"

Xavi watched her throw the knife, intrigued and slightly awed by the precision. He looked back at her. "You act like I have something better to do," he snorted, standing up. "Of course I'm going to help you. If I wasn't, I would've left by now. You know me." He got back to work on the agility course, busying himself with swinging from bar to bar.

Isabella turned around and launched one from behind, well over her shoulder until the same sickening thus rang out. This was definitely not the proper place to train with weapons but who was going to stop her? She owned the place. "Things will be more intense this time around. More illegal. More dangerous," she said as she crossed the gym to rip the knives from the blue mat, "are you entirely sure you are up for that? Last time we were quiet tame and I don't want to get you stuck in a situation you can't get out of like your recruitment." That had been ages ago but she still felt a pang of empathy for the boy's unusual situation with the Serpents.

Xavi tried to ignore the sound of the knifes piercing the mats and moved on, swinging himself onto a platform. "I told you," he grunted. "I'll be fine.I'm not a scrawny fifteen-year-old in an over-sized leather jacket anymore," he said. He began crossing the chasm of mats below him on the unstable beams that connected to another platform. To be completely honest, he was beginning to get tired of being babied. He understood why and he knew they had good reason to but he was more than capable of taking care of himself.

"I know you aren't," she said before looking the male up and down definitively, her brow quirking. "Certainly don't look it either," she said and yanked the second knife out, her curls bouncing against the small of her back. "But if you wind up in jail, I don't want to be the subject of blame. I just want you to be one hundred percent aware that as my second hand, shit will most certainly hit the fan. We're going to uproot this community worse than these pathetic killers and last twice as fucking long," she said with a laugh and took another swig from her flask as she moved toward where he was lithely swinging on the bars. "If I didn't have faith in you than I wouldn't have asked you," she mused with a playful wink despite the geniune statement.

"Great, sounds fun," Xavi replied. It almost seemed like he was brushing it off. He wasn't, just extremely accepting of the consequences. If you told him a couple of years ago he was going to be the right hand man to a gang lord, he wouldn't have been surprised either. He was apathetic to things that way. Made him kind of flexible regarding life situations. "When do we start? Can't have a gang with a handful of people."

"Well, I guess today. Once I sober up, I have a few places I can check for recruits. If you have any suggestions of people you'd think would help than do let me know." She started to toss her knives up and down, which in theory looked dangerous if you didn't know what you were doing. "In the meantime, I scheduled a few meetings today with shops around the Wizarding Quarter to claim as new territory. I've seemed to strike up deals that each offers us a percent of their weekly income in favor of some occassional security and the fact that I won't burn it down to the foundation." She knew threatening the stores in submission was corrupt but it attained her new goal of expanding territory.

"Negotiations are underway, nice," he mused. Xavi thought about the plan for a awhile, not knowing particularly what places he could contribute. He hadn't been out lately. "None that I can think of off the top of my head, but we could use some ministry connections. I could work on that. I'm not that infamous among the streets yet."

Isabella personally hated the ministry but it could pay to have connections on the inside so she nodded and aimed her knife. Launcing it from her grasp with a flick of the wrist, the tip of the blade embedded into the blue mat on the other side once again. "Once we figure that out, I'll see about gaining new recruits. Ever since I took out the heads of the local theives guild, a lot of their previous members fled from the profession but are still floating around aimlessly. They could be beneficial as well."

"Bratty thieves? Why not?" He said it with a grunt as we reached for a bar and swung off to reach the next one, continuing in a succession of the same pattern. He tried to block out the thwacking of knives, trying to put his mind at peace. "It wouldn't kill to have some student members."

"They will be easy to influence because they really have no one else to turn to," she replied with a grin. By influence, she meant manipulate and terrify but Xavier didn't need to know that. "Provide them with a roof over their head and warm food in their stomach and we could create a legion," she mused. "Students. Yes. I'd say fifth year and above."

Bella wasn't wrong but he had a feeling she meant a little more than what she was saying, but who was he to dig into it? He didn't really care. "Fifth year and above," Xavi repeated. "On it. The thing is, we have to get someone in there first. We're both to old, and there's no way in hell I'm applying for any job at Hogwarts so we drop that idea immediately. Any other pools we want to recruit from?"

A thought popped into her mind just as she threw the second knife, tongue clicking thoughtfully against the roof of her mouth. "Funny thing anout that," she said before moving to lean against the bars, watching him closely with eyes that could pierce his soul. "Blackstone got a job as a professor at Hogwarts," she said with a hint of disgust before continuing, "he could be our in." As much as she didn't want to involve Wren or Blackstone, they were still *somewhat* Serpents.

Xavi paused in his moments, lightly swinging from the bar. "Jace? Teaching?" he asked, slightly surprised. "Sounds fake," he snorted. "But this is a good entry point. We shouldn't be too overbearing and ask him to do too much. He'll just plant the seed and watch it grow."

"Right?" she said with a snorting laugh, unable to contain herself. "He doesn't peg me as anything but a garden club host and potentially a bottom," she said rather cruelly before crossing her arms over her chest - Wren was likely the pants in the relationship. "Can you send him an owl and see if he will keep an eye out for promising students and report back to me? I don't want to write him," she admitted and as her eyes followed Xavier.

He only grunts in response at first, attempting to regain his lost momentum. Finally he gives her a verbal response, "Yeah, I can do that." He wanted to ask why she didn't want to write do him but it wasn't his business and it wasn't something he was interested in pressing answers for. He got onto the next platform and leapt, landing in a roll on the mats. Then he remembered something. Or rather, someone. "I wonder how Donnie's doing," he wondered out loud.

He opened the doors to the Gym and glared at Max, very upset and he didn't hesitate to strode over to him. "What in the hell do you think you're doing?" He asked Max, stopping his punch and grabbing his hand to prevent him from punching anymore. "I track you down for two hours only to find out that you're here punching away at a bag while you're injured? How many times do I have to tell you to take care of yourself?!"
