Author's voice: Yes I know...I'm sorry... School work... Enjoy...

"Uh oh..." Greer mumbled as she stood next to Jean. She had just noticed, she had forgotten to activate her inducer... "Busted again..." Bobby groaned making his way to them followed by the others. With her lips quivering, Greer flicked her tail violently as she heard whispers and mummers travel through the crowd of staring and pointing people like a tidal wave... Finally not being able to take the tension, Scott broke the silence. "Now look we don't want any trouble so why don't we just leave so..." He was interrupted by loud yells... and cheers. Greer's eyes grew wide with surprise as the people before her started applauding and cheering. "Are they...Cheering for YOW!" she yelped as four strong men lifted her into the air. Greer struggled weakly before realizing the men holding her weren't hurting her. In fact they were patting her gently and lovingly while punching their fists into the air. "Hey! Zey! Don't hate us!" Kurt yelled happily as he too was lifted into the air despite his devilish appearance. "Now this is more like it!" Bobby declared while high fiving Kurt and Greer.

The next few hours for Greer was just pure bliss... She had turned from a hated animal freak into a celerity overnight. The men thanked her graciously and marveled at her strength as she helped them clear off all the rubble. The women kept offering her... offerings comparing her to one of their tribe's deity, a legendary cat woman warrior who warded off evil spirits. They all loved her. Especially the children... "Again! Again! Again!" a little girl begged scrambling over Greer's shoulders. "No! Enough..." Greer laughed as she caught the girl before she fell to the ground while also attempting to shake off the other children that were clambering all over her. "No again! No again!" the girl giggled as she climbed onto Greer's head... "C'mon Greer amuse them! Ve don't get to do this often!" Kurt laughed as he switched back and forth between his elf and human appearances receiving cheers and laughter from the children. "Hhhm you do have a point...Fine elf...". Standing up, she dramatically reached for her inducer and deactivated it. Most children cheered loudly at her furred form while the bolder ones playfully tugged her ears and tail... "Ok ok ok enough enough!" Greer laughed as one of the boys pulled apart her lips revealing her fangs. "This is all so surreal..." Greer thought really not use to all the positive attention. "Why can't the rest of the world be like this? Just this accepting... People and mutants... Everyone just getting along...No prejudice, no discrimination we'd all be so much happier... " She thought as she and Kurt joined the children in a game of soccer.

It was Kurt's team against Greer's. Both Kurt and Greer were goalkeepers to give the children more of an advantage... That didn't mean they didn't use their powers. Kurt kept teleporting to the appropriate position to goal keep while Greer simply used her enhanced coordination. The score was close and both had no intention of losing. "Children! Time to eat!" A woman yelled. "Awww..." the children all groaned. "Mama can we stay with them longer please?" a little boy asked clinging on Kurt's arm. "No Rico...Its time to go... let us not bother the guests any longer..." the woman chided as she smiled apologetically in Greer's direction as a couple of girls started hiding behind Greer's long hair. The children all pouted. Greer looked at them playfully. They were so adorable... She shoved the ball into Kurt's chest. "Will you guys show me where to eat?" she asked gently following them striving to keep the children happy. They all cheered and grabbed her arms pulling her towards the town square. There was a celebration going on in the town square. A big one to honor what team has done for the village. "Hey guys..." Greer greeted sitting next to Amara with her platter of food while Kurt sat next to Tabitha. "Well you guys finally got back...I was getting worried..." Scott reprimanded as usual only to stop as a waiter refilled all their drinks without asking for charge. "You see this all I was asking for... Too be treated like a queen!" Tabitha declared raising her glass. Greer rolled her eyes. To be treated like a queen was not ALL Tabitha wanted. "Oh yeah! I can really get used to this..." Kurt sighed sipping his drink. "Hey why not? We're big time to heroes! THIS is how heroes are supposed to be treated..." Kitty commented chewing her mango. "Sadly our society can't get that right..." Greer said sadly remembering Damien and all the jerks that had mistreated her. She looked away slightly. Remembering how she was humiliated by all of them solely based on her appearance. It seemed like it was just beyond mankind to accept what they deemed unnatural... Without warning there was a violent rumble causing Greer's drink to spill onto her lap...
