“Are you ready, Jean?” yelled Scott up the stairs as he waited in the foyer of the Xavier Institute.
“Coming!” called Jean Grey emerged from the top of the stairs.
The beautiful redhead telepath joined her boyfriend in the foyer. She was wearing her casual attire, namely tan khakis and a light purple shirt. Scott wasn’t wearing anything special either except a dark jeans and a red shirt that matched his ruby quartz glasses. She smiled and took his hand. Scott returned the gesture, giving it a firm squeeze as they made their way to the garage.
“Sorry I got held up,” said Jean, “Had to print out my English paper.”
“That’s okay,” assured Scott, “We got all night.”
Jean smiled at his words. They had only started dating a month ago after the Mystique incident and so far it was going well. It took some adjusting at first because they had been friends for so long, but their romance quickly blossomed. They still endured plenty of teasing from the others. Everyone referred to them as the resident love birds with a storybook romance. But Scott and Jean brushed it off, for they didn’t know the full story.
