“He’s cute,” Nico said appraisingly, watching the dark haired mutant who had just dissolved a huge, heavy wooden door with a touch as he tugged his gloves back on. He looked up, catching Nico’s eyes as he did so. His own eyes widened slightly, giving him a decidedly ‘deer in headlights’ look. He looked away quickly, a flush rising to his pale cheeks.
Nico studied her nails and noticed the paint on her index finger was slightly chipped. “Hmph. It took me ages to get this design.”
“I guess he’s okay,” Victor grumbled. “I could have gotten the door open, though.” Nico felt a little smirk rising to her lips, and she walked faster, catching up with the mutant boy.
“Not bad back there,” she said. “You have a name, or should I call you ‘hey, you’?”
He pushed his hair back from his face, watching Nico out of the corner of his eye as he shied away from her a little. “Kevin.”
“I’m Nico. Mr. Roboto back there is Victor.”
Kevin grunted, his only acknowledgement of the introductions.
