"What's with the 'bad boy' attraction?"

"What do you mean, Billy?" Kate asked.

"Well, excluding the whole librarian thing, Eli probably counts. And you were sort of interested in Tommy for a while."

Kate felt her eyebrows almost hit her hairline. "Are you asking me why I'm not attracted to you?"

"What? No!" Kate smiled a little at how fast Billy answered that.

"Then what?" She blinked. "And who else are you talking about?"

"Well, Tommy's dating Megan. And last night I was on IM with Vic. You know, Anole?" Kate nodded. "Apparently, he's, uh... seeing Julian."

"Really?" She asked, surprised. "That's one I hadn't seen coming."

"So what's the attraction?"

"Didn't you used to have a crush on the Human Torch?"

Billy blushed. "Uh, I guess."

"It's the same thing." Kate's iPhone beeped. She reached down and fished it out of her purse. "Bank robbers downtown." She read. "Patriot's requesting back-up." Kate dropped her phone back into her bag and stood up. "But just for the record, Billy? I can't really answer your question. Eli couldn't really be a 'bad boy' at heart, no matter how hard he tries."
