Freya: The Danger Room

Storm should be coming at eight thirty. Currently, it's eight, and I'm levitating the lamp because it looked like fun and I needed a small release of power.

There's a knock on the door and I drop the lamp. Luckily it does not break, and I'm able to imagine it sitting back on the end table just in time; Storm pokes her head around the door.

"Oh, good. You're up. What was that that fell?"

Feeling no need to lie, I tell her, "The lamp."

"Oh. It doesn't look like it fell," she comments, but drops the subject without further questioning.

"Are you ready?" she asks.

I nod and slide off the bed.

Storm takes me to the lower levels, something I feel I'm becoming too familiar with. We stroll through the underground maze and pretty soon we stop at a large, metallic door with a large X in the middle.

Storm enters some kind of code or another, and the door slide open, revealing a large room with... emptiness.

"I'm training in here? Or is this just a pit stop..."

"You're training in here. Now, since your ability could range over any type of training, we'll most likely be covering all, or most of the training we give to the other students. We'll start with some basics.

"Today, we're just going over the safety. Now, if somebody opposes you and you're on your own, you wouldn't take any precautions, you would just do what you have to to survive. But if you decide to stay here for most of your life, and become an X-Man, you need to take safety precautions to make sure you don't injure your team mates," Storm explains.

I have a few questions, but Storm answers those for me without a problem.
