I watch them as they move the few boxes of belongings they have into their new bedroom. I'm not watching because I'm curious or anything. I'm watching because, to put it frankly, I don't trust them. The five of them showed up randomly with a bloody teammate, and suddenly they're moving in. Tabby moved into her old room, while the other four chose to share a room next to hers.
They seem… normal, I guess? I don't know. When they're alone and think no ones looking, they seem sort of tense, uncomfortable. But as soon as they see one of us, they immediately go into 'annoying Brotherhood' mode. Heck, even Quicksilver managed his usual cocky smirk and insult war with Evan, and he's suppose to be injured!
I don't really know what to make of it all, especially since we still haven't gotten the full story. All the professor told us was that there was an accident, Pietro had been hurt, and they had chosen to stay at the mansion for a bit.
Now there are many segments of this that make no sense to me. First off, Pietro, Quicksilver, was the one who got hurt. How is it that the fastest member of their team is the one that got hurt, and pretty badly at that? It just doesn't make sense. Secondly, they chose to stay here? Since when has the Brotherhood ever willingly involved themselves with us? None of it adds up.
Either way, we now have five new (well, four new, one returning technically) housemates. And as much as I'd love to be all 'role model' for the younger students and welcome them with open arms and all that crap, I'm not sure I'm capable of pretending I want them here.
Lance caught me watching them. He immediately sends his usual glare my way.
"Take a picture, it'll last longer." I glare back, but stay silent. Even if I don't trust them, obviously the professor doesn't think they're a threat, so I have to at least trust him. I jump a little as Jean puts her hand on my shoulder. But I still smile. Jean always makes me smile.
"Dinner's almost ready." Before I can reply, the Blob and Toad rush past.
"Alright, yo! Chow time!"
"Yeah, I'm starving!" The others soon follow as well, grinning at their friends' antics.
"When aren't you hungry, Fred?"
"What? It's my mutation!" They laughed a bit before disappearing behind the corner.
Yup. I definitely don't trust them.
Ok, so this was sort of a 'filler chapter'. It's just a look into the minds of one of the X-men to see what he thinks of all this. Next chapter will have more actually story. I don't know how long I'll keep up all the points of view/ first person narrative. It's kinda difficult, so I might just go into third person and occasionally have a first person chapter. But let me know what you think! Thanks!
