CAPABLE OF DRIVING ALONE!
Neverland ((Tsubasa and Red Raven Witch)) IC
Peter stood in a room very familiar to him, in London. There were two young girls floating outside and one older one standing infront of him. Wendy covered her mouth, "Hello, Peter."
"Wendy..." Peter said a small smile on his face and sadness in his eyes. She reached out and touched his face, "Same as always... I thought you wouldn't come."
Peter took hold of her hand, "I always come. I wished you would have stayed."
Wendy shook her head, "My place is here, in London Peter. I have a daughter of my own now... I was meant to be in London and you were meant to be in Neverland. The Lost Boys would never get along without you, Father."
Peter smiled, "Indeed you are right, Mother." Wendy kissed his forehead, "Now, off you go, Peter."
He walked over to the window and stood on the window sill, "Good bye, Wendy."
Hopping off he looked at the two girls he had collected and nodded, "Well, off we go." He took hold of there hands and took off. Pulling them upwards he smiled, "Hold on tiiiiiight."
The dark turned bright then softened to a light blue sky day.
Adrian looked around amazed, "It's beautiful."
Peter let of their hands, "Come on then."
He dove down toward a grove and wove through the trees till he came to a wall. Pushing aside the vines, he smirked at the girls, a smirk that made you both want to trust him and not trust him at all, "Go on in. The village is on the other side."
Slightly popped out of the vines and looked at Peter, beaming he ran back into the Indian Village, "He's baaaaack!"
How many times had I wished for this? To be here with Peter Pan, to be in a world where things aren't 'normal'. So far the whole experience had been nothing but a dream I was afraid to pinch myself in for the fear I would wake up. Looking at Peter I felt my heart flutter with excitement, yet when we finally landed my excitement and joy became what held me back, walking slowly towards the village on the other side.
Indians came out, beautiful in feathers and hand made clothes, greeting Peter and his guests with great joyous howling. Some of the lost boys started to howl with them in laughter and happiness, bringing me to smile and giggle a bit at them. Once we were in I stopped, watching the girl who came with me and Peter to see what they did, unsure of what to do or say myself. Standing there quietly I watched as everyone started to talk, run around, and some came up to Peter or Adrian to talk to them, but with me standing back and so unsure they seemed to not notice me, or if they did they weren't walking up.
When no one decided to see me I let my mind wander, glancing around the forest and jungle area, my curiosity getting the better of me to the point I almost flew off on my own to see what other wonders there were, however I didn't fly off and was stopped instead by something tugging on my nightgown. Looking down I saw a lost boy, with some of the curliest hair I had ever seen. To adorable to resist I smiled and knelt down so I was eye level with him. He smiled back, introducing himself as Tootles.
"It's a pleasure to meet you Tootles, I'm Ava." He seemed pleased, which made me happy as well. Unlike Peter he didn't make me wary, he didn't give me nervous feelings- feelings I gave to my first flight and not really to him- but instead he gave me a warm feeling inside.
"Peter! Are there any more children coming?" Tootles called while I straitened myself up.

Slightly ran up to Adrian, "It's a pleasure to meet you, Miss. Slighty's the name."
Adrian laughed slightly and nodded before more of the Lost boys were on top of her with introductions. She looked over at Peter who seemed to be, after his greeting, walking away muttering to his fairy. He was rubbing his lip and look was set on his face, a look of worry? It did not match the rest of the boy's body. A young Indian girl with feathers in her hair walked up to him and rubbed his back.
"Peter, is this all?" Tiger Lily asked in a hushed voice. Peter sighed, "I know it's not enough. I'll go out again. I'll search for more... But children aren't believing like they used to."
"You can't leave, Peter," the girl said simply. He looked at her shocked, "Why not? We need more. We're at war... We won't survive like this."
Tiger Lily shook her head, "But we can't survive with out you. You bring our people together to fight. Under your leadership, we win against Hook. If you leave and something happens, we're doomed."
Peter nodded, "I know.... I'll think about it..."
He heard Tootles pipe up behind him and turned smiling, "Of course there are!" He threw his hands in the air. Pulling out his dagger he walked toward them, "They are blood thirsty and ready to fight, a whole battalion... Of course I can't bring them all here so I brought the best. I can't go back for sometime though. Jimmy is getting close. We can't let him find this place..."
Slightly nodded and pulled a flute off of his belt that seemed to hold more small instruments than weapons. He began to play a happy little tune and started to jump all over the place. Peter laughed and took Tiger Lily's hands and started to spin her around until she produced his pipe. Grinning, the boy took it and started to play. The two boys hopped and skipped around with Indians and Lost boys. Peter, holding his pipe in one hand, held out his free hand to Ava, "Care to dance?"
Adrian stepped back and out of view of the people and their festivities. Turning she ran through the vines and the tunnel. Hopping up she found she was still capable of flying, for now. She decided she would go for a little fly around, looking. When she landed again the floor beneath her feet was wood, she smiled at the man in front of her, "Hello, Captain James Hook."

Ava stared at Peter for a moment in disbelief before looking down at his hand. While watching him and Tiger Lilly she had started to think they were an item or something. Even if they weren't, wasn't he in love with Wendy? Yet here he was, asking her to dance. Her heart fluttered a bit as she nodded, taking his hand and going to dance with him and everyone else.
As everyone danced merrily Hook stood on the deck of his ship, looking out to Neverland, planing and thinking while dreaming at the same time. It was the voice from behind that pulled him out of such night dreaming, and though he was surprised he turned around and looked at the girl with a sly smile, as if he had been waiting for her.
"One of Peter's friends?" He asked, bowing mockingly as he held out his hand, taking her's and gently kissing it before placing his hook around her wrist. It was only to scare her, he wouldn't dare harm her. . .yet. "Now, my dearest girl? What is your name and why are you here on my ship?" He smiled, trying to look pleasant but only looking even more sly and devilish in his own pirate way.

((sorry sorry sorry!))
Peter gave his mischievous grin as he twirled his pipe around his fingers before placing it into his belt. With the hand that held her's, he pulled her close, placing his hand on her back he took control. They spun and skipped and jumped through the crowd to the sound of Slightly's pipe. This was a celebration, this was a turning point in the war, they had new fighters, the Indians had hope. Peter did not. He prayed that this would help but he would be fooling himself to think that two girls where going to change the tide of the war. They needed more but Tiger Lily was right, he couldn't leave. This celebration wasn't just for the girls, it was for him and his return. He was these people's hope and leader and that is why he needed to keep smiling. He needed to be the child they expected him to be and nothing else. He wasn't an adult, he was never going to be, that was why he was in Neverland.
He spun Ava again and this time spun her toward Slightly, who's free hand was outstretched to take her. Once they were dancing Peter ducked out. He left the festivities and found his teepee. he went inside and threw his hat across he pathetic excuse for a room. He couldn't do this here though. If the Indians saw him stressing, it would worry them and that wouldn't help them fight. Instead he slipped out the back and ran into the forest before he took off into the air.
There was one place Peter loved to go when he needed to be alone. It was no longer a safe haven for the Lost boys, so he was certain to be alone and he slid down the slide into the tree fort hide out that had once been their home when Wendy came. He walked passed the ever dripping fountain of medicine and walked into his room and flopped onto his bed. So much had changed since Wendy left and all though he did not go with her, he could feel himself growing up...
Adrian stuck her hands on her hips and puffed out her chest, "I, sir, am Adrian Fall. Peter brought me here less that an hour ago."
She began to walk around the captain, "I haven't any interest in their merry band of Boys and Indians. I prefer a place that works like an oiled machine. Where everyone has a duty that they must follow. Much like your ship."
She stopped in front of the Captain, smiling, "What I am trying to say, Captain, is I want to join you. I want to help you to," her light blue eyes suddenly became very dark.
"Bring. Peter. Pan. Down."
Hook watched as her beautiful eyes turned dark, which brought a dark smile to his lips as now he circled her. "You? A charming girl? Not a fan of young Peter? Why, I believed every girl swooned for him." Stopping in front of her again he reached out, gently lifting her chin to get a better look at her. "Apparently there are girls who have brains after all."
Chuckling to himself he let his hand slip from her face bringing it to hold his hook before frowning a bit. Peter, the one who took his hand to feed to the beast was now losing even his own followers. This brought the smile back, the mere thought that even the children wanted to be on the pirate's side "Now, darling child, what is your name? I would hate not to know the name of such a charming new member of my crew."
While Hook as for the name of the newest pirate Ava was off in what felt to be the most beautiful dream she had ever had. Whenever she thought of Peter Pan the image that popped into her mind was that of a boy, but this wasn't a little 12 or 13 year old. He was taller than her, as most were, and with a boyish charm she was caught off guard. She felt excited and happy as they danced, as he held her close and twirled her. Laughing merrily she watched her feet, but when glancing up into Peter's eyes she had the sudden feeling that he wasn't as happy as he should be. However, before she could question it she was passed to Slightly, who didn't give her the same feeling as Peter had. Dancing with him a bit she then started to twirl with Tootles, who seemed to take a liking to her.
After the one song ended Ava looked around for Peter, though there was no Peter in sight.
"Tootles, where did Peter go?" When Tootles informed her he may be in his room she went and found it strange that they didn't live in a tree. Not seeing him in his room she questioned whether there ever was a lost boys hangout in a tree, but after asking an indian she was told that it was no longer in use. This sort of upset Ava, for she had been looking forward to sliding down it and taking a peek.
In the end she decided she could if she wished and went off to find it. No one would miss her at all, that she was sure of, and went to find the tree. Thankfully it didn't take her long and once she had gotten into the old hideout she started to look around in excitement.
In the corner there were a few bits of gold from what Ava guessed to be where treasure once laid. Behind a chair she found a small crown, beautifully designed in gold and emerald. Placing it on her head she laughed at her reflection in a little pool of water before humming to herself and looking around more. Pulling this, pushing that, opening this, messing with something here and there just to feed her undying curiosity.

Peter heard someone enter the tree house and jumped. Removing his knife from its sheath he crept out of his room. Had a pirate seen him enter and come to gut him? He wouldn't be surprised. They weren't exactly searching for a fair way to win the war. He spotted a shadow and walked around the wall as sillently as possible. Once hew saw the feet that were attached to the shadow and grabbed their wrists. Holding them behind the person's back, he held his blade to their throat, "What are you doing he-"
He looked at the person's face and lowered his knife, "Ava? Why are you here?"
Peter looked down at him hands that held her wrists tightly, "Sorry. He released her and walked over to his 'throne' and sat down. He rubbed his forehead and sighed, "I've been a little on edge..." He shook his head, she wasn't allowed to know that. She had to have confidence, otherwise her being her would be pointless. He smiled and laughed, "Okay, maybe not. How do you like the old hide out?"
Adrian's eyes followed Hook as best they could. She grinned, "Peter Pan is just a child. He is brought down by his own reality. He is pathetic and there is nothing to swoon over."
She placed her hands on her hips, "Adrian Fall... Though I'm sure you're more likely to know my Mother's maiden name."
A sly smile spread across her lips, due to her exchange program, not even Peter would realize. The woman with in the home, Peter had a little chat with. The woman within her own home.
Hook gave her another look, now only starting to see a few things that reminded him of Wendy. "Ah the irony of it all." Hook laughed, polishing his hook lovingly. "The girl he loved the most, her blood related kin will be the death of him." Oh how sweet it was for him. Did Peter know that Wendy's charming granddaughter was now going against him? He hoped he didn't know, Hook hoped that when it was revealed he could see the look on Pan's face.
Smiling at Adrian Hook came to stand beside her once again. "Miss Adrian, you do not know how pleased I am to have you apart of my crew." Taking her hand he started to lead her around the ship, showing her where the crew would eat and sleep and where she would be staying, as for work "I'd like to keep you right at my side. Your company has brought me such great joy." He smirked.
Ava, on the other hand, wasn't having as much fun now. Scared so badly she couldn't even let out a scream she closed her eyes tight, just trying to get her nerves back for a moment. WHen she felt the cold blade of a knife she was about ready to have a fight but hearing it was Peter made her calm. She sighed softly when he let her go, looking at him as if she didn't quite believe that he was as happy as he tried to act. Really, she did believe he was stressed, but she had a feeling he wouldn't tell her why, or at least, he wouldn't easily.
So until he told her, or actually became happy, she played along and smiled. "I love it. I've always dreamed of having a hide away like this." She spun around, taking everything in once more before looking back at Peter. "But I suppose I don't have to dream anymore, do I?" But that brought the question of why they weren't using it anymore, but she let that question slip by for now.
Taking off the crown she walked over a tad hesitantly to Peter, smiling a bit bashfully before placing the crown on his head. "This is your castle, your throne, and your crown." With the smile growing a bit she knelt down, letting her hands rest on his knee and her chin rest on her hands, looking up at him. "You are the king, and the king has nothing to stress over as long as he has his people following him. I'm one of your people, Peter, and I'm here to help you." In her own way, not being able to help it, she was trying to tell him not to be stressed. He had people behind him, backing him up with whatever he had on his plate, so he didn't have to stress. Or, at least, not stress all on his own like he seemed to be doing.

Adrian smiled, as Hook seemed to take kindly to the new of her mother. She clasped her hands together, "It will all be in good fun."
Her smile grew to a grin when he spoke of how he was glad to have her on his side. She was extremely happy that he had accepted her so quickly, then again Hook was smart enough not to even dream of giving up this chance. She looked around with an amazed look in her eyes, it was magnificent. The way the pirates moved in perfect harmony and now she was apart of it. Adrian looked up at Hook as he spoke of her position. She squealed silently, not wanting to appear a child, and nodded her head, "I cannot think of a place I'd rather be."
Peter watched as Ava admired the tree fort and smiled, "No, you do not.... But promise you won't come alone... The pirates found this place years ago. It isn't to safe to be here alone."
His eyes focused on her as she walked toward him. As she lifted her hands and his crown, he bowed his head, to accept it. His eyes followed her as she lowered to her knees and leaned on his own. He smirked slightly as she spoke, "A king is no king without his people, but a people without their king is lost as well... My people need to believe that their king is strong and capable," he paused to stare forward. He remained silent for a moment before he continued, "Not doubtful, or fearful... They don't need a child, they need a man...... But I am only a child, no matter how long I've lived."
He stood and walked away from Ava, "That's why Wendy left..."
He cleared his throat, "A king cannot show weakness. Or the enemy with exploit it," he walked over to Ava and helped her to her feet before placing her hands against his chest, "Fear resides here... But they can never know it. The pirates, the Indians, and especially the Lost Boys. Otherwise they'll feel it. If I can hole it up here, then they can continue to smile."
He smirked slightly, "That's all I've ever wanted for them."
