Author's Notes: Obvioulsy, an AU.



“New guy,” Sarah announced, dropping into the seat next to Victor. The boy barely looked up from his homework, so the cyberpath went on. “Blindfold says he zapped a guy at his school.”

“Another electricity thrower. Nori’ll have some company.”

“He’s cute.”

“Allow me to find a container in which I may hold my joy.”

“C’mon.” She grabbed Victor’s arm and tried to pull him up. “At least you could come meet him.”

“Will you leave me alone if I do?”

“Oh God, he’s a fanboy,” Sarah giggled, peering into the room that was half covered in posters of X-Men and the Avengers. “So cute!”

“He’s not here. Can we go?”

“S’cuse me pardon me coming through!”

Victor turned towards the new voice and watched a stack of long white cardboard boxes approach unsteadily. As he watched, the box on top tipped to one side. Victor dove for it, and managed to catch it, only to have the carefully bagged and backboarded contents spill out across the floor. “Aw, dammit!”

“Sorry,” Victor murmured, stooping to collect the Spider-Man back issues.

“Not your fault,” the new guy assured him, putting the rest of the boxes down before turning to the task of helping to pick the fallen comics up. Victor darted a few quick glances at him as they gathered.

Dark hair, a little on the skinny side, cute face. Moved like someone used to getting out of the way quickly.

“I’m Vic, by the way. They call me Anole.”

“Oh, um. Billy. I haven’t got a code name yet.”

Victor met Billy’s eyes, and the new boy gave him a smile that lit up his whole face and made Victor’s heart stop for a moment.

“Nice to meet you.”
