[Sector 4, Loose Circuitry]

Spiderman stuck his head out the window and a devilish grin came across his face. “Robots huh? Finally some some fun!” He ran to the kitchen and grabbed a large pan. Since his powers were not there he had to improvise. With one swift motion of his arm he let out his only remaining powers, webbing. The silk like material shot out of his wrist and he swung down from his window down to the streets below. “BONZAI!”

X this is us tonight

“How do I feel?”

Laura paused, uncertain. How did she feel? Happy to be away from those who tried to control her, but sad without her friends. Irritated to see Spiderman here, but still relieved. Nervous about her jobs, but hoping that they will turn out to be fun…

“That is… a very difficult question to answer…”

If she hadn’t been preoccupied with her thoughts, Laura would have been very uncomfortable with ‘spending the night’ - to her, that only meant one thing, and it was still uncertain whether Spidy could convince her to allow that…

It wasn’t that Laura was meaning to be that rude - she had never been close to Spiderman, back home, and it was difficult for her to be anything other than cold to anyone she wasn’t close with.

“Did they? I was unaware…”

Still, she smiled again - The only other man who had ever done that kind of thing was Remy, and he was as close to a father-figure as Laura was ever likely to get. She definitely missed the Cajun thief…

“Let us go~”

"Well then we have all night for you to think about it k?" Again she smiled and Peter just beamed at her. It was nice seeing a friend smile and Peter couldn’t help but smile along with her. He walked with her up the platform and waited for the train to come.

exie-23:

“Happy? Not exactly the correct word.. as if I am not just an experiment… a clone. Alive, in a sense. As for Loki, he assured me he was not related to the Thor we know… but it is hard to tell with him, I suspect…”

Looking away, Laura seemed embarrassed. She wasn’t supposed to get along with Spiderman, even if he was being mature, for once. Even if he was being friendly, and seemingly not out of a desire to get in bed with her.

“I was smiling? You should know that smiling is not something that I do, Peter…”

The cultural sector - Sector Four - was a good place to go, especially if you wanted to find foods that were different, although it was also where Laura worked. If she hadn’t revealed her occupation to Peter earlier, she would have felt uneasy, but seeing as he already had information about what she did…

“That sounds like a good idea. If we want to get there before dinner, we should take the train…”

"You’re alive aren’t you? C’mon now Laura there’s always a reason to be happy. Tell me how do you feel? Just spending the night with a friend, about to go be fatasses, and just relax."

He could tell that there was something positive she kept hidden and he wants to get it out of her! He was trying his best to be her friend but everytime he goes up she pushes him down. I’m not going to give up.

"Yes you were smiling, I saw those lips of yours curl up. I’m spiderman I notice these things." He pulled her in closer and ruffled her hair. "C’mon kiddo loosen up. OOO TRAIN? LETS TO!"

“Trust me, you’re way better then this. I can see it in your eyes there’s like a sparkle. Maybe we can take a class or something. Somebody I met said I could be a pokemon trainer….even though I have no idea what that is.”

He laughed to him a bit before noticing her lips curving into a smile, he found himself smiling too. When she asked if he had a job it went straight into a frown. CRAP I KNEW I FORGOT TO DO SOMETHING DAMN IT. 

“If you like I mean. as long we both can relax and just eat I’ll be happy.” His hand dove into his pocket pulling out his wallet. When he opened it and there was nothing inside he started laughing awkwardly, noticing her voice sounded more calmer he linked his arm with hers and walked down the street. 

“Trust me, I am not. It is the only way I can truly feel human… besides, it is only until the career I was made for takes off, you understand. At least ,that is how long I intend for it to last, but… I do believe a Norse God has other plans”

She noticed the frown, and shook her head. Very few people had been bothering to find employment, or so it appeared… Then again, Laura had difficulty in even feeling emotions, so the supposed shock of arriving her had dissipated as soon as she had found her apartment….

“If I may be so bold as to suggest any sector apart from one and three? The buildings move around in sector one, and… although sector three has an amazing bar, it is run by gangs…”

Laura was quite surprised to find that she was smiling, and quickly resumed her impassive mask. She had to keep up appearances, and she didn’t understand why she had been smiling in the first place…

“It truly is no trouble, one of the advantages of my career is pay, and considering where I am located… it is easy money, truth be told…”

He smiled at her, “If it makes you happy then I guess? Now whats this about Thor’s family hmm?” He grinned at his friend as they walked down the sidewalk. “Hey there why did you stop smiling? I liked it, everything seemed more at home when you did.”

He was trying his best to get her to smile but she changed the subject and Peter was thinking back to his welcome manual. “Uhm how the cultural area there’s bound to be alot of food that can fit our taste?”

exie-23:

“No, Peter. I am not better than that… I wish I was, but… it is what I know, what I am good at. What… in theory, I should enjoy. I do not think policing is for me, considering how quickly I was moved from the X-men…”

Finally, she smiled at Peter Parker. Although she would have difficulty getting over their past… at least he seemed to be trying to change himself, to be more responsible, which she admired. Maybe, if he kept changing, she would be able to like him…

“Peter… I have far more money at the moment than you do… do you even have a job yet? I will pay for us both…”

Her voice had lost its usual, dangerous air, and was almost pleasant… hesitantly, she took the proffered arm, feeling a little strange… after being so rude to him for so long, Peter was trying to be nice to her? It was confusing…

"Trust me, you’re way better then this. I can see it in your eyes there’s like a sparkle. Maybe we can take a class or something. Somebody I met said I could be a pokemon trainer….even though I have no idea what that is."

He laughed to him a bit before noticing her lips curving into a smile, he found himself smiling too. When she asked if he had a job it went straight into a frown. CRAP I KNEW I FORGOT TO DO SOMETHING DAMN IT. 

"If you like I mean. as long we both can relax and just eat I’ll be happy." His hand dove into his pocket pulling out his wallet. When he opened it and there was nothing inside he started laughing awkwardly, noticing her voice sounded more calmer he linked his arm with hers and walked down the street. 

exie-23:

She wanted to protest, but… he was not lying to her. The reason why she hated the X-men, her father, no matter how much she cared for them, was all the lies they told, as if she was nothing more than an object… than X-23. But Peter Parker… was willing to treat her like a person…

It was strange - normally he was so flippant, and immature, but here… it felt as if she was the one being childish… but it would be difficult to get over how he used to act. A test, perhaps.

“Peter… if I told you… I was working… as an assassin, and as a whore… what would you think?”

How he answered her question would influence whether she was willing to give the man a chance. If he was brave enough to say he didn’t approve, but smart enough to realise that it was her choice and there was nothing he could do… she would be willing to ignore the past, provided he didn’t screw up too badly in the future….

"Now now, don’t say whore. I mean we must do what we need to our livelihood right, but deep down I know you’re better then that. Why not use your powers for something more positive like being a police? Odin know that someone with your capabilities could change things around, think about it k?"

He knew that selling ones body for sex or voilence was wrong, but its her choice and she has to do what she wants. He’s only an acquaintance he has no rights to say anything bad. 

"Hey C’mon lets grab a bite to eat and we can talk more k? My treat." He smiled at her and offered his arm. Even though she may hate him, she was a familiar face in a new world and even though he may seem like big man on campus he really needs a friend.
