Author's Notes: I own nothing.





Sofia leaned against the door frame, watching Jono pack (which mostly consisted of him stuffing his favorite clothes into a duffle bag and discarding the rest), her lower lip caught between her teeth. He paused in his work, shooting Sofia a brief smile. “Hullo, sunshine.”

“Hey. You busy?”

Jono shrugged, laying the stuffed duffle bad on his bed. “Not really,” he replied. “What can I do for you?”

Sofia tentatively stepped into the room. “I was just wondering what you were going to do now. Where are you going?”

Jono sucked on his teeth. “Out west, I suppose. Heard the X-Men were letting former mutants in, and I’ve got some questions about what’s happened to me that I’m hoping they can answer.” He smiled ruefully, gesturing towards his face. “What about you?”

“Back to being just a regular waitress, I guess.” Sofia replied, shuffling her feet. “I don not think I am ready to face the X-Men. When do you leave?”

Jono swung the duffle bag over his shoulder, shrugging it into place.

“Oh.”

“I try to avoid goodbyes,” he explained.

“You haven’t avoided this one,” she noted dryly. “And while I’ve got you cornered…” Sofia rested her fingertips against Jono’s jaw, just barely brushing his lips with her own. “I will see you again.”

“No doubt,” he assured her.
