A/N: Hi, this is actually the fastest I've ever posted chapters lol there's more to come soon.
Summary: Just before the mission...
"Are you sure you want to come inside?" she asks for the third time in the last 15 minutes, ten of which they've spent inside the car in London traffic.
He's amused, but tries to look annoyed.
"Look mami, I did not fly all the way over here to sit at home and have tea and crumpets. If you didn't want me to come, you shouldn't have told me what you're planning to do."
She rolls her eyes and he surpresses a grin. They both know she's not going in there alone. Thinking back on when she tod him her plan, he frowns a little.
She's a determined person, as brave as he remembers her being, willing to put her life on the line for others. It's what made them follow her as leader all those years ago.
It's also why he's going with her now.
This mission is personal, and those are the ones he knows she has difficulty stepping away from when things get overwhelming.
He's there as the voice of reason... or so he tells himself.
Her eyes flicker to his briefly and she smiles. "You look nice."
Marco tries his best not to blush and makes a noise in his throat. The tux isn't at all his usual style, but the Hellfire Club's dress code is well known among the Xmen, and the last thing he wants is for her to go in there alone just because he was too stubborn to wear a tux.
He gives her another brief glance and fails to stop the blush this time.
No, she most definitely was not going in there alone. Not dressed like that.
As she turns left at an intersection, he asks "You really think we have a chance at finding her?"
She blows out a short breath. "I hope so."
He doesn't press further, electing instead to spend the rest of the ride in silence. he knows the plan; after all they've been over it three times already.
The mission is dangerous- they could very well end up being killed- but all he concerns himself with at this momment is admiring her resolve.
She's told him herself how unsettled the Club makes her, and, listening to what she's told him about her last time there, he can understand that.
Yet, here she is.
He starts to realise how much he truly missed her bravery, and he finds himself feeling immensely grateful that she's found him again.
Hope you liked it:) As always, reviews are welcome.
