It was odd, though he was getting used it now.

As he walked up to the taxi that was awaiting him at the school entrance, students would duck their heads to not be caught by his gaze, trying not to make eye contact lest he asked them to help with some inane teacher task. That, or they were scrambling to hide cigarettes or the red flush that came with the embarrassment of being caught making out by a teacher. Because that's what he was now, a teacher. He wasn't just Jonno or Kent, he was Professor Kent. Students all chirped out his name like little wrens, chasing after him like ducklings. He was visible and noticed in ways that Jonathan Kent, the student, never was.

It was odd, he couldn't say he exactly enjoyed the attention.

"Whew." He sighed to himself, leaning on the fence just outside of the school near the taxi. At least, for the next few days, he would get a break from Beata, though it would be no less stressful, he was free from watchful eyes. Well, he was in the company of Morgan, but he had a hunch that she wouldn't trail after him or treat him like an outsider. To some of the new students, he was a teacher, but to her, he was just a former student who got a rapid promotion. Surely, she wouldn't be like them? That's what he fervently prayed.

While Morgan wouldn't say she treated Jonathan like the other students did, she would agree that their relationship had certainly... shifted since he'd become a teacher. Ever since that day at the gym, she had been busy sifting through feelings that she didn't even understand. Now, with his new position, she had been more confused and conflicted than ever, and she still couldn't figure out why. They still saw each other around, and though she still considered him her only friend, the redhead had been doing her best to avoid being in his presence too much. After all, when she was, she reverted back to her old self, all burning hot cheeks and fiddling with her shirtsleeves.

Obviously, she had been doing a very bad job of avoiding him, because here they were, about to embark on a mission together. Alone. For an indeterminable amount of time.

She wasn't sure why that made her so anxious.

Still, she couldn't deny that she was beyond excited for this opportunity to prove herself. She wasn't sure what was to come, but she had a feeling it was going to work out.

Walking through the front entrance, she spotted the taxi just beyond the gate, but she didn't see Jonno until she had passed the gate. When she saw him leaning against the fence nonchalantly, her cheeks heated up without her consent. She smiled, but inwardly she was thinking, This is going to be a long trip.

The sounds of approaching footsteps had Jonathan stand up, dusting off the paint flecks off the gate to greet Morgan. It had been a while since he'd seen her, he'd been immersed too deeply in his work and the science degree he was working to complete via his long-distance studies. It had been one of his major regrets when planning out this year, and seeing her just reminded him of all that he was missing out on. He'd forgotten little things about her, just how red her hair was, and how her smile was a touch shy, making him want to say something stupid so she felt less self-conscious.

But this wasn't a romance comedy, nor was he particularly witty, so he ended up just defaulting to a simple, "Hello."

The corner of his eyes crinkled as he smiled toothily, face half-buried beneath a scarf, he still managed to seem sunny and cheery. It was hardly difficult with Morgan, though if he thought too deeply about their last meeting, that smile would have turned to a cough followed by the reddening of his cheeks. Which was why he was pointedly not thinking about how she looked in a sports bra as she lunged her chest towards him in stretches. No, he thought about things that had a lesser chance of him being arrested, like what an effective fighter she was. And how beautiful she looked in con- And how she was looking very... very nice today.

"Ready for the mission, I have the files if you need to read up. Just don't tell the Headmaster I'm taking the files outside the school with me." He joked, waving the manilla folder.

"Breaking the rules already, are we? I guess I won't rat you out, Professor." Her lips quirked into a smile that she couldn't help. It was still weird to think of him as a legitimate teacher, and she wasn't sure she'd ever be able to seriously call him Professor Kent. No, he was still just Jonathan to her.

That at least hadn't changed.

She had forgotten how much she enjoyed just being in Jonathan's company. His bright smile and cheery attitude contrasted her reserved nature, and he always seemed to bring out a better side of her. She liked the way that she was around him. Still, Morgan was Morgan, and that meant that she was still generally awkward. While she had already read up on their mission, having something to distract herself with probably wasn't the worst idea. Taking the folder from Jonno with another soft smile, she passed him and climbed into the taxi. After all, they had lives to save, and there was no need to delay.

"You better not, I was doing this for your benefit, Morgan. That, and my uncontainable rebellious spirit urged me." He really wasn't. His beverage of choice was a capri sun, and his hobby was raising birds, hardly the cool rebellious punk of the school. But Morgan knew that, and so did everyone else who'd known him for longer than half a second. That's how he'd ended up a teacher at Beata aged nineteen after all.

Following her in, he took his seat next to her, giving the taxi driver their destination. The ride was surprisingly quick, with the highway being blissfully free of any pile-ups or traffic jams for once and before he could say much at all, they were there. From there it was customs, plane checks and off they were to Michigan.

"I heard that Flint was a borderline ghost town, but this is a bit much." Jonathan commented at the dilapidated motel that was just out of the way of the main street. It was probably the least rundown building for a good stretch, but it was hardly the Ritz. "Shall we go in?" He asked, peering through the glass door at the empty reception office.

Looking up from the file before her (which, admittedly, she wasn't even paying attention to) Morgan raised an eyebrow, amusement warming her eyes. "Uncontainable rebellion streak. Right." Come to think of it, she couldn't think of a single rebellious thing Jonathan had done. True, she wasn't extremely close with him (and spent a frankly embarrassing amount of time avoiding him), but she found it hard to believe that he had a wild side.

Though, she really wasn't one to talk.

The majority of the trip to Michigan was spent more comfortably than Morgan would have thought. While the redhead hated awkward interactions and despised small talk with all of her being, she was once again surprised by how easily she could just... spend time with Jonathan. After a while, the seemingly permanent fire on her cheeks faded away and she was able to relax into the casual silence that sat between them.

Eventually, her reprieve ended as they made it to their destination. As they pulled up, she leaned closer to Jonathan's window (and subsequently him) to get a better view of where they'd be staying. "Not exactly the ideal vacation destination, huh?" Looking over, she realized with a start how close Jonathan was, and she quickly pulled away, thankful for the way her hair covered the blush coming back to her face in full force.

A few minutes later, they stood outside the hotel, eyeing the inside uncertainly. The fire on her cheeks had subsided, and she was once again able to meet Jonno's eyes as she looked over and shrugged her shoulders. When she had accepted this mission, she had simply imagined constant action and excitement as they completed their objective. She completely forgot about all of the mundane steps in between, like checking into hotels. "You tell me, Professor. You're the adult here, after all."

"Technically you're older than me, y'know. The real adult here is you, I just have a fancy title." Jonathan joked as he pushed over the creaking door, having it fall down onto its hinges in front of him. "Oh." He didn't really know how to respond to that, the glass shattered on impact and they were just standing there in front of a broken glass door. Logistically, who paid for it? Him or Beata? Could he pass this as a mission expense?

He sighed to himself, this was going really well. Though he knew he had to the face the music, he couldn't help lean over to ask. "Wanna leg it?"

"Jimbo! Get the shotgun!"

"No choice, let's go. I'm sure there's another inn around here." One hand went for her luggage, the other shot to her wrist. In a moment of panic, he kinda forgot that Morgan could be a little touch shy because of her gift, more focused on avoiding being shot at by Flint's finest. He pulled her along for a journey, ducking through rundown buildings and alleyways that hadn't had human contact in years. But really, he knew from experience, a little dust allergy was nothing compared to a chest full of lead.

As they to turn out of an alleyway onto the road, a siren could be heard in the distance. It most likely had absolutely nothing to do with them, but the guilt conscious was guilty. Jerking back, he unceremoniously pulled them back behind the nook of an abandoned barber shop, his back pressed against the moss covered grimy walls as he pulled Morgan against his chest. Over her head, he scouted across the street, not really realising that they were practically hugging.

Morgan was about to reply, but as the door fell off it's hinges and the sound of shattering glass broke the silence of the eery hotel, all that she could muster was a quiet, "Fuck." This day had not gone at all how she had thought it would. She had been mentally and physically preparing herself to kick ass and save lives, not to deal with paperwork for property damage. What the fuck were they supposed to do about this? There was a moment of shocked silence, where she fixed wide eyes on Jonathan in a helpless look before the unfamiliar voice rang out. Alright, maybe paperwork and a strong scolding from the manager was the least of their worries. Uncertain of what to do, all she could get out was a stuttering of, "Uhh, I don't - " before Jonathan grabbed her wrist and ran.

Morgan supposed she should have been thankful that he tugged her along after him, since she probably would have stayed frozen in place to face whatever they left at that inn, but her first reaction to his contact was the one that was ingrained in her since she was a child - fear. Her body tensed up and her eyes grew even wider as she instinctively tried to pull away. That only lasted for a moment, and then the realization that she couldn't hurt him calmed her nerves, allowing her to follow along, now focusing on getting the hell away from trouble. Still, a small part of her lingered on the pleasant feeling of his hand gripped around her wrist.

The thought was cut short as she was pulled hard into the alcove, suddenly much closer to him than Morgan would have liked. (Or, at least, that's what she was telling herself.) She was so close she could feel the heavy beat of his heart against her ear. She realized how fast her own was racing, but part of her knew that it couldn't be blamed solely on running through the streets. She closed her eyes, trying to focus on anything other than the weird things that her mind kept falling back to, like how nice his cologne smelled, or wow, alright, she knew he worked out but...

It was all a bit overwhelming for Morgan, and completely unfair. "Is this really necessary, Jonathan?" She mumbled, but still made no move to pull away.
