| The Workings of Wolfsbane
This was turning out just like every other night, lonely. It had long
ago ceassed to bother Rahne weather or not she had a home. Over the past
few months she has gone out on numerous missions with her "friends" the New
Mutants lead by someone she thought was a criminal in Magneto.
They are currently on call upon hearing that someone called the
Beyonder, whoever that might be, was wandering the globe occasionally
getting into fights with super teams.
So now Rahne is laying back in her room looking at the ceiling and
wondering when, if ever, the alarm would sound. She wishes it would so
they could fight and rest. Staying on alert is taking its toll on the team
As she laid back she heard a knock at the door.
"Query:Is Self-friend Rahne awake?"
Rahne chuckled. Warlock's mode of speech confused a lot of people, even
the ones who had been around the Phalanx for a while. He often wandered
around looking to talk with people trying to learn more about humans.
"Aye Warlock, come in."
The techno being came in and Rahne sat up in her bed leaning against the
wall. "What are ye up to tonight?"
Warlock shrugged "No need for self to sleep. Query: Why is self-friend
Rahne shrugged. "Don't want to I guess. I'm sick of just starting to
rest only to have the alarm go off."
Warlock nodded. He often wished he could experience such things as
sleep, but it wasn't practical for him. Even if he wanted to it is harder
than it looks. He tried one night. Lied back, closed his eyes...then got
confused. He wasn't "out of it". humans talked like sleep was some
instanaious thing that happened the moment ones eyes were closed. Ya lie
down and BAM! a turned on in your mind that played until it was time to
Warlock sat down on the other end of the bed. He thought it felt softer
than his, but it was probably just from being slept in so much. Humans
called it breaking in, which again made no sense to Warlock since the bed
Rahne looked over to her teammate and giggled. He was in his own little
world again. He was a sweetie no doubt, but he had a bad habit of zonig
out. He would get a train of thought going and follow it no matter how
long. Since she wasn't about to sleep with Warlock in the room she decided
to give him something other than thew cosmic working of a bedspred to think
about. With that in mind she moved over to him and kissed him on the
What happened next made Rahne laugh and feel nervous at the same time.
Warlock, having been derailed from his thoughs on human never saying what
they mean, Literally spun his head around. Rahne fell back laughing fit to
burst until she heard him make what shounded like an alarm. Not wanting to
wake the others she sat up and covered the whistles Warlock produced and
tried to talk serously through he giggles.
"Ye must keep quiet Warlock. No need to wake the whole team!"
Warlock quieted down and Rahne sat back down still giggling.
Warlock feeling somewhat confused looked at Rahne. "Query: Why did
self-friend Rahne kiss self?"
Rahne started to calm down and shrugged. "I saw you were thinking and
wondered how you would react."
Warlock accepted this. "Query: Did self act wrongly? What did self to
do to make you laugh?"
Rahne chuckled. "You have watched in the morning right?"
Warlock nodded though he didn't see what point that made.
Rahne continued. "Well sometimes in people will over react
like you just did."
Warlock was afraid of that. He had watched a lot of what could show
him of how humanity works, but now is starting to realize that isn't
reality. "Query: What is the right reaction?"
Rahne felt herself blush. She couldn't say she didn't have some
experience, her and Douglas had kissed when no one was looking before.
Still he was human. Warlock was...well...alien. ~Good job Rahne~ she
thought, ~now you get to tell a phalanx, who's sole survival is assimaltion
what humans do.~
Rahne sighed. "Well, first off, usually when two people kiss it means
they are enjoying each others company. This is usually done in the quiet
which is why making loud noises isn't exactly appropriate."
Warlock nodded. "So self-friend Rahne enjoys my company?"
Rahne fidgeted. She was still very unused to sexual ideas, though being
around her own age more is making her more curious. "Well, yeah. You
don't tease me or make me feel ashamed of who I am."
Warlock looked at her. "Query: Who on the team does that?"
Rahne looked up "Oh no no no. That was my "father" Reverand Craig who
did that. No one on the team has."
"Query: No one has kissed you either?"
Rahne looked down and tried to find the words. While she did Warlock
leaned over and kissed her cheek. Rahne looked up and blushed deep. She
hadn't been kissed by Warlock before. In fact apart from Douglas she had
never been kissed. It wasn't that she didn't think or fantasize about it,
it just never happened.
"Query: Is self-friend Rahne ok?"
Rahne nodded rapidly. She was alright, just confused. It could have
been the Phalanx ability to take over a organism or just her frame of mind,
but Warlocks kiss felt gentle. "Would you do that again?"
Warlock shrugged and leaned over to kiss her cheek again, but Rahne
turned causing him to kiss her on the mouth. Warlock immediately backed
off. "Query: Why did self-friend Rahne do that?"
Rahne could see he was almsot hysterical again. She should've guessed
as much by his first reaction. Warlock had never kissed before, not a
human at any rate. She moved closer to him and looked at him. "This is
the first time for you isn't it?"
Warlock nodded. He had generally watched MTV and after being
told by cannonball that they were the things people watched the most.
Though he often found Rahne, Xian and other watching what they called "soap
operas". This confused Warlock since soap was rarely ever seen during the
Rahne looked at him and thought of the reverands prechings about
premarital sex. It was tempting by the devil and should be forbiddin.
Then she looked at warlock. Here was a being who would probably never
marry, and yet hungers for information. And since Craig had said she would
burn anyway, she might as well teach him what she knows. They could learn
Rahne looked at Warlock. "I was..err..wondering if you would like to
Warlock nodded. He had no idea what more meant, but knowledge is
Rahne took a deep breath and leaned over kissing Warlock. Warlock's
eyes widened and he was tempted to sound alarms again like the had said
usually happens. Then he remembered Rahne saying this is usually done in
quiet and kept it to himself. He felt Rahne take his arms and wrap them
around her waist. This felt good. Rahne pulled back with a sigh and
looked at Warlock. Warlock for his part was frozen. He had never
experienced this before and didn't know what to do.
Rahne smiled and took his arms from around her waist. Warlock just
watched as she stood up and tried to reach back to undo her uniform.
Warlock knew she could make the zipper appear anywhere, but for some reason
it showed up where she couldn't reach. "Warlock would ye help me please?"
"Query: Is it wise to take off your uniform when we're on alert?"
Rahne Shrugged. "Probably not, but I would rather wait for it like this
and have a interesting time rather than stare at the ceiling."
Warlock nodded and stood up. He walked behind Rahne and slowly undid
the uniform. As the uniform came off he could see more of her body. She
was small in build to most humans he has meet, barely under 5'. Her skin
was white as milk. Warlock had learned that a lot of heads have a
lighter complextion, though he didn't think it would be this light. As her
uniform fell to the floor she turned around and looked at Warlock. Taking
him by the hand she sat down on the bed and motioned for him to sit next to
Rahne leaned over and kissed Warlock again. this time Warlocks hands
moved to her back on their own as he returned the kiss. She put her arms
around him hugging her body closer to his alowing him to feel her skin. He
could also tell her blood pressure was rising. He had seen the reaction in
his team mates before. Usually when the team had won a fight in the danger
room and were "celebrating". Some of them called the behavior "bouncing
off the walls", though he doubted very seriously if anyone but Cannonball
actually did this.
Rahne broke the kiss and looked into Warlock's eyes. She felt strange,
nothing like when she would flirt with Douglas. She felt her heart start
to burn, and her breath started to get heavy.
Warlocked looked at his team mate with concern. "Query: is self-friend
Rahne snapped out of it and nodded. "This is as new to me as it is you.
So I'm trying to keep it slow."
Warlock nodded and simply held her for a while. Rahne felt her breath
come back to normal. She looked at Warlock and didn't really kow what to
do next. She knew about sex, that wasn't the point. She just didn't now
how it was done. She knew this kissing part and the mating part. Since
this kissing was done she guessed it was time for the mating.
"Query: What do we do now?"
Rahne looked at him and blushed. "Now? now we have sex I guess. I
dont rightly know how to with you though."
"Query: Why not? Is self different somehow?"
Rahne blushed and nodded. "Well see for humans to mate the male has to
put something inside the female."
Warlock felt even more puzzled now. "Query: where does self have to
Rahne looked down, as did Warlock. She took his hand and guided it down
across her belly, and from there hesitantly to between her legs. "thats
Warlock felt around with his fingers expecting to feel a opening. the
problem was he found two. "query: self has found two possible entrances.
Which one does self use?"
Rahne thought about this. In all the she had seen it was just a
man on top of a woman, or the other way around...there was no stating "this goes here."
Rahne shrugged. "I dunno. Try feeling in both"
Warlock nodded and sent two probes in Rahne. the probe in her longer
opening seemed to have more manuverability, while the probe in the smaller
one didn't. Warlock decided to expand the probes to see how much he
needed. As he did he heard Rahne gasp. Immediatly stopping he looked at
her, "Query: is..". She stopped him saying "Don't stop, this
Warlock nodded and slowly continued to expand the probes. As he did he
kept a eye on Rahne who had now lied down. She was wiggling a little and
moaning quietly. after a minute or two she yelped and looked at Warlock,
"I think that's big enough."
Warlock nodded and the two sat there. After the initial shock wore off
Rahne and Warlock came to realization that neither of them knew what to do
"Query: What does self do now?"
Rahne tried to think. "Can you move them?" Warlock nodded and moved
them out a bit. Rahne gasped again, "try moving them in and out." Warlock
nodded and did so. He started off slow watching his friends reactions and
as he felt she could handle, increased speed. Rahne for her part wriggled
on the bed and felt the burning in her heart burn hotter now. The feeling
was intoxicating, still she wanted to know what more warlock can do.
Bewtween pants she managed to ask if he could do anything else.
Warlock nodded and began to spin his probes like a drill. keeping the
probes moving Rahne's eyes opened wide and her body began to sweat. The
burning had moved to her belly now and was heading down. Her breath became
more ragged as well. When the fire reached her groin she felt herself
start to shift into were form. Her body was trying to help her survive the
process. As her orgasm started to burn she let out a low howl catching
Warlock off guard. With his rythem interrupted and now her body quivering
Rahne Let out a long, low howl and felt her body explode.
Warlock looked at his friend while she howled and saw her body go into
what looked like a seizure. Immediately withdrawing the probes he leaned
over his team mate. "Query: Is self friend Rahne alright?"
As her spasm ended she opened her eyes. Over her was Warlock. She
brought a hand to his cheek and smiled "Aye...I'm fine."
Then the world went mad. The alarm went off and orders were being
barked. The two quickly got Rahne into her uniform and went off to join
the others. Though people saw them come out of her room they couldn't
understand while they waited for the Beyonder why the two were chuckling to
