Characters: Paige Guthrie
Prompt: 25. Skin
Summary: She wants to shed her past like a snake sheds it’s skin.
Sometimes, Paige Guthrie wishes it was as easy to shed her past as it was to shed her skin. Just strip away all the history and reveal something shiny and new underneath. Slough off all the old pain and sorrow and heartbreak.
Yeah, that would be nice.
She wants to shed the image of the Hayseed, of Cannonball’s Kid Sister, of the Bumpkin. She doesn’t want to see that anymore when she looks in the mirror, or the eyes of her fellow X-Men.
She wants to shed her old life like a snake.
