Melody gave an absent nod at request, but smiled nonetheless. She began to cut the veggies, soon placing them on the grill to give it a bit more of a kick. Bacon followed while the burgers cooked. The air was filled with the scent of a good old fashion barbeque, something that seemed to come easy to the young hero. She handled the cooking without being taken away from the conversation either, her ears occasionally flicking at the sound of popping the burger grease occasionally gave off.

With those ears, however, she did pick up on the sigh and the tone of…well, lack of interest. The notion caused one of the ears to falter a bit, a bit embarrassed she was touching on a topic that maybe she shouldn’t have been digging into. She’d have to change that if she wanted to continue with the good impressions. Still, she listened keenly to what Yang said, keeping that polite and warm grin on her face, honestly quite interested in what she had to say. It was often she met an alien, let alone an alien from Earth. The thought alone made her head hurt a bit, but what was one to expect when dealing with this kind of thing.

She gave a small nod, smirking now. “Well, if I ever see a bad one, I’ll knock ‘em in your direction so you can deal with him or her personally. Though, I will say it’s nice that some folk up above in space are looking after us small folk down here. Though, I suppose that does bring of the question as to…why?” Damn, that was another question about her race, she wanted to change gears from that. Still, there were so many questions that ran through her head, so many things she wanted to know. The idea of fighting an evil Overseer also appealed to her, she always wanted to prove herself against strong folk. Even though she had a good chance of sparring Yang here, an unrestrained, no holds barred fight with one would be quite the event. Perhaps even too much…

She would consider that later though. For now, she gave another shake of her head. “Ah, don’t gotta answer that! I am more curious about you, honestly. What other stuff ya get up to, ya know, besides hero stuff. You’re always welcome to bum around me if you’re in the area and looking for something to do. Same goes if ya ever wanna team up again, it was real nice having someone to go through a whole ordeal we faced.”

“Me and my big dumb mouth.” Yang thought to herself. For someone who wasn’t to fond of her kind, she sure didn’t mind talking about them. Guess it was an inward desire to actually talk about things. Things she’d never told anyone before. As it stood there was an extremely small pool of people who had any idea what she was. It just felt right to be open with Melody. The two did fight side by side and the young woman seemed trust worthy. Someone Yang could call a friend.

“Its…Its fine really. I get it. Not every day you’re presented with the chance to learn about this sort of thing.” She glanced away from Melody for a moment and rubbed the back of her neck. How the hell was she going to summarize the existence of the Overseers and their ‘mission’. “Hmm how best to summarize things. Lets see. The most basic way I can put it, is simply its how we were designed? Someone or something, created us with the sole purpose of being a safeguard of some kind. We merely took to our goal a little to serious and continued to grow and evolve to better carry out that goal.”

Yang didn’t want to get into specifics. As a matter of fact, she didn’t really know the full story or see the bigger picture herself. On top of that, there was the fear of information overload. Say to much and she could completely lose Melody all together. There was a slight moment of reprieve as Yang’s focus sifted to a more comfortable subject, herself. “Ah well, my life is kinda boring. My father put me in charge of the family company hoping it would take my mind off other things, and keep me busy. But the truth is, I sneak out of the office a lot.” she let out a small mischievous chuckle. “He and for that matter, the company, really don’t need me micro managing the hell out of it. Business pretty much runs itself. So I’m always free to just duck out and do my own thing.”

“What about you? Any hobbies or daily mundane routine you busy yourself with to fill the void between being and hero and all that?”

That word seemed to get a bit of a perk from Melody, her ears seeming to straighten slightly. "Designed". That had a whole lot of implications about the creation of a species and higher power entities, things that were...well, seeing as how strong Yang was, it seemed nearly impossible and it made Mel feel very very very small in that moment. Of course, this also made her feel as though as she had to get stronger, and the urge to spar with Yang seemed to strengthen. She had to get better, for she didn't want anything in the universe to danger this tiny planet, she wanted to be a hero who could stop anything. At least the evolution part seemed natural and for that she could understand a bit more. Not entirely, she wasn't a scientist, but she had enough of an education to understand the concept of it.

As Yang started to go on about hobbies, Mel plated the burger with all the toppings and held it out to her with a smile, and then went back to cooking hers which was just about ready as well. She chuckled along with Yang, shaking her head a bit and relating more than Yang would know. She snuck out more than once for...reasons when she was younger, though now that she was older most of the sneaking around entailed stuff like this, a vacation from hero work. If anyone had known about this place, she'd have to give it up.

With her burger done, Mel went over to sit on the railing of the deck, grinning a bit at her new friend. "What I do? Honestly, mainly hero stuff and all the publicity that comes with it. I got a few products with my name and image on it, toys and clothing mainly, a lot of training gear too. I ain't really all for that, but the fans like it and it seems to boost morale in people, so I figure it ain't hurting anyone." She thought for a bit, gently kicking her legs, "Let's see...I have a...what would you call it...he's basically a sidekick or...a trainee? A young guy, not to young, but a hero like me. Odd is his name, he makes portals and his skin can turn all black and stuff, like the night sky. Its pretty cool and he could probably make it on his own, but he insisted for so long that I help train him and there's a lot that can be done with his help. We make a good team, you'd like him. He ain't the brightest, but he's pretty sweet and is a great hero." She never realized how fondly she could speak of him, "He's got a lot of aspects honestly I'd like as a hero, fame never appealed to him and he just is a hero because he says its the right thing to do. But a lot of time is spent training him."

She considered a bit more, thinking of what exactly she did. Had it really been so long since she had a normal life with normal hobbies. "I got a sister too, I train with her. A lot of training in my life. But my sister is a lot stronger than me, though heroing isn't for her. She's more of the type to...beat up people who annoy her." She shrugged, snickering a bit, before taking a few more bites of her burger. "A lot of my times goes into hero work, but that's why I come up here, to break from it and just recoop mentally, ya know? I used to party a lot, and drink, all that stuff to unwind, but after Odd became my sidekick I started to break away from that and do more stuff like this." He hadn't realized she had talked so long, but...well, she never knew how to keep her mouth shut. "Of course, even if this is a vacation I do certainly wanna do some more training and get that spar in with ya. See how I can compare, ya know?"

“I believe the word you’re looking for is protege?” Yang would slightly interject before allowing Melody to continue. As her companion spoke, Yang helped herself to the burger Melody had handed her. One bite was enough to warrant a muffled ‘oomp’. She had, had plenty of burgers before, but there was just something about a home cooked one, done over the open flame of a barbecue that made it taste all that more incredible. The young Overseer did her best not to attack the burger like a rabid beast, but the one bite was enough to get her to bury her face in it while Melody finished speaking.

It was quite nice hearing Melody speak so fondly of her sidekick as she called him. It must be nice having someone you could train with everyday and rely on in a pinch. Yang didn’t have anyone like that in her life. The closest thing was her dad, who had done his best to foster Yang’s heroic nature and upbringing, but this was different. This was a companion. A friend Melody could fight side by side with and trust in. It was nice, and Yang silently thought about if she’d ever come to have someone like that. She was shaken out of her melancholy as Melody then brought up her older sister.

“Stronger than you?” Yang’s curiosity peaked a bit. Always and ever on the lookout for ways and things to test her might against. “That’s quite the compliment considering the strength I’ve seen you exhibit. Still, there’s always room for improvement. There’s no doubt in my mind you could surpass her if you put your mind to it!” Yang would say with a childish grin.

All this talk of strength and sparring was really getting Yang pumped up. Hell she almost felt like jumping to it right this moment. She’d have to rein herself back in a bit. The two had already decided that tonight was time to unwind and chill after the mess they had just gone through. The sparring match would have to wait till tomorrow. “Im looking forward to it. Hopefully we don’t do any unexpected landscaping while we’re at it.” She’d say with a playful chuckle, knowing full well one of them was bound to just cut loose by accident tomorrow.

Yang would finish off her burger, quickly patting down her face to make sure she hadn’t gotten any ketchup or juices all over her face. Despite her upbringing, she was quite the quick and messy eater. Last thing she wanted to do was seem like a complete barbarian in front of her new friend.

Melody snapped and pointed a finger at Yang, nodding with an appreciative grin. “Protégé, nailed it.” God, it was the worst when a word just escaped ya. Melody hated that. She was never good with words. She had a knack for appeasing the PR and shit talking criminals, but giving speeches and being fancy with words? Nah, that certainly wasn’t for her. Protégé was also one of those fancier sounding words, it was right, but it was a bit too fancy for her normal diction.

Mel gave another nod, “Yeah. Much stronger, actually. I don’t know if I need to beat her, though. She ain’t trying to compete with me. And vice versa. We’ll spar here and there, but after twenty-seven fights I have only managed to get a single draw, the rest are losses. The draw was because she had a broken arm.” She laughed at this, something funny about the situation to her. Perhaps it was because it was her sister and she knew how she was…how she acted.

Melody gave another nod, bot for a moment she looked at Yang, sizing her up, trying to figure something out. It was a judgmental or bad look, but there was a question on her expression. “Say…what do you wanna do? I mean…not tonight or hanging here, but…you said you had your down time to do stuff for fun and whatnot, but like…you’re a hero and your entire species seems like they are based on a similar principle. But I guess…what I am trying to get at…do ya have any goals or aspirations? Anything you’re working to? Do you wanna do what you do? Or has there ever been any other draws for you?” She slumped forward a bit, a small grin, and her head resting in an open palm.

“I mean, I always wanted to be the best at what I did. Either in boxing or heroing, that’s what drives me forward, but from what ya said before…you said designed to protect folks, well…you seem to have a good deal of free will, have ya ever wanted to try something else or…something?” There wouldn’t be any form of judgement in her tone, solely curiosity. “And! If you ever wanted to do something else and your pops was stopping ya-” She rose an arm and flexed, “I can knock some sense into him for ya.”

What an odd question, Yang thought. She’d like to think that she could ponder several answers that all sounded deep and meaningful, but that wasn’t really her style. She’d look back to Melody, give a slight chuckle and shrug of her shoulders. “We all have our own right to do as we want. Being good and helping others out has nothing to do with my heritage or not. Even if I didn’t have these powers I’d still like to help people. The powers just make it easier.” She paused a moment to stretch, twisting her upper body back and forth a few times to loosen up her back.

“I honestly don’t have any goals. I’d rather just live in the moment. Do things as they come up. See where my whims may take me. And I don’t think I’d have to worry about my dad in that department.” The young Overseer would plop herself down on the sofa before returning her attention back to Melody. “When I said we were designed to protect people, I didn’t mean that it was like hard coded into our DNA or anything. As a matter of fact, a lot of our kind have all deviated from our original purpose in some way. It just so happens that our People evolved into something greater than our kin. So we’re more than willing to make up our own minds and choose our own paths. Mine just so happens to be having a good time.” she said with a slight chuckle and a playful wink.

There was obviously plenty of things that occupied Yang’s attention throughout any moment of the day. She took her training seriously so that she could be strong enough to protect those she cared about, as well as being able to face any challenge that might come her way. She also did really enjoy helping her father with his work, even if she did dip out of the office frequently to go party or beat up baddies in an alleyway. Yang liked her life the way it was. There was just enough organization to keep her sane, and just enough chaos to keep things from becoming stale or boring.

Melody gave a nod, and for a moment felt twinge of guilt in her stomach. Wanting to help people without powers…that was something that she never really thought about. Before this she was a boxer and only became a hero because she gained the powers. She never really helped anyone prior to this, not in any way that she did now. To some degree, she did wonder, if she was really went at this with the right mindset? No. She was fine, this was fine. She was doing the hero stuff now and that was all that really mattered. The past didn’t matter, nope. It didn’t have any sort of pull on who she was now at all.

As Yang went on Mel gave a few nods, going along with what she said and there seemed to be something of relief passing over her. She was glad it wasn’t a position forced upon her new friend, as anything forced upon anyone always didn’t sit well with Melody and after Yang had finished she was smiling all the brighter. She gave a firm thumbs up. “Ey, nice, I am glad to hear that’s the case then. And here I was worried I’d have to beat up your old man, I don’t want to imagine how tough that guy is, especially if he raised you.”

She put her fist into an open palm and cracked her knuckled, also feeling relief that she wouldn’t have to fight another super powerful person like that. Sparring a friend was one thing, smacking up a being of power she could fathom was another. “I can understand wanting to live for a good time, living in the moment! When I was a boxer I did that a lot. As a hero…I still do that, but with more subtly than I did when I was a boxer. So long as I won fights it didn’t matter too much what I did in my free time. Now that I am a hero I feel restrained a bit in terms of what I can do.” She grinned wide, “Though, if you’re ever in New York hit me up, we can go clubbing.”

It was Melody’s turn to stretch up and twist an arm. She let out a small yawn, “So…I know this vacation and all, but I did wanna ask…” She started, still coming out of that yawn. “What did you make of everything that went on the other day? That was pretty crazy, right? Not the usual thing I tackle, glad I did, but still…that was all bit too much info for me. I’m more of the brute force type, so I’d love your take on the situation that went down.” She asked this all rather casually, not looking to poke any sensitive points, but still curious to see what the Overseer had to make of it.

Yang let out a loud chuckle as Melody fathomed the possibility of fighting Yang’s father, and him being some super powerful being. She couldn’t have been so wrong in her imagination. “HA! Believe me, my dad wouldn’t put up much of a fight. He’s just a plain ole dude. It’s my mother you’d have to worry about…” Her voice trailed off for a moment. No matter how much she didn’t want to talk about her mom, she either kept bringing it up, or the conversation called for it. She’d wipe the slight pain from her heart and crack a smile back to Melody.

“That all being said, I definitely feel like I get my urge to help people from my dad. Despite him not having any powers of his own, he’s dedicated his life to helping others. Its why he started his company and why he does what he does. A true altruist if you’d ask me. That’s why I said, even if I didn’t have powers I’d still try to find a way to help out as best I could.” She grinned widely before nodding to Melody’s offer of hanging out some time if she ever went to New York. “I’ve actually got family in New York that I’ve never met. My dad’s brother, who is a meta, and his daughter, my cousin. So I’ll definitely take you up on that offer when I decided to go visit them.”

And that was that for the lighthearted talk, at least for now. The subject had been changed to the events of yesterday. The creep lab, the nasty monsters that came after them, and that strange FBI agent. Even up to now, her father hadn’t gotten back to her with any information. She had called him the moment she got to the hotel that night and had gone over a lot of the details with him.

“I honestly can’t make heads or tails of it to be honest. A lot of that lab was thrashed when we got there. We didn’t even explore much of it either.” Yang took a moment to pause and think. The whole situation didn’t feel right. If anything she’d like to sneak back in there and see if she could uncover anything herself. Problem was, the place was no doubt crawling with federal agents by now. That being said, there was no guarantee they’d be as thorough in their search as Yang would. “I’d like to go and give the place a once over at some point. There’s no doubt in my mind that we missed something there that could help shed some light on the whole thing. They seemed like they were in a hurry to leave and get rid of the place. Which makes me think there’s still something there.” She said, thinking about the nuke they tried to drop on the underground facility.
