Speed Song Ch.6

Only two words can explain the first half of the car ride: awkwardly tense, until…

“So… at least now I know why you wanted me to call you Quicksilver.” I can’t help but chuckle at her comment.

“Yeah, how are you? I mean it’s been three years.” Three years of wondering what her name is.

“I’ve been all right. How have you been?”

“Good… ” Good, that’s all you can think of to say, really?

“All right I’ve had enough of this. How do you two know each other and who is she?” Wow Erik rude.

Fairy looks at me with a nervous expression and I give her a reassuring smile.

“My name’s (Y/n).”

(Y/n).

“All right (Y/n), how do you know Peter?” Charles asks before Erik can be rude again.

“Um well, it’s sort of… weird?” She’s figeting with her fingers and I put my hand on hers, she lifts her head to look me in the eyes and I can tell that she’s scared.

“Believe me when I tell you everybody in this car is more than use to weird by now, you can tell them. They’ll believe you it’s ok (Y/n).” Logan says.

Who knew a seemingly rough around the edges guy like Logan could even attempt to be comforting?

“All right but, don’t say I didn’t warn you.” She takes a deep breath, "I’ve know Quicksilver- err Peter since I was five but, this is the first time I’ve ever seen what he looks like-“

”-What do you mean this is the first time you’ve seen what he looks like?“ What’s with Erik and being rude?

"I was going to get to that, the reason is because we would only meet in dreams, now that I say it out loud I sound like I should be in a nut house, great.”

“… Dreams? Well that’s a new one, isn’t it? How exactly does it work, do you control it?” She turns to face Hank who’s asking the questions.

“Well that’s the thing Mr.-”

“McCoy, Dr. Hank McCoy, it’s nice to meet you (Y/n).”

“Nice to meet you too Dr.McCoy. Back to my abilities, I can control my abilities pretty well except for the whole dream thing,” She turns to face me again, “That’s why we’ve only talked once in the past three years.”

“Now I know why the last time we talked I was left with a cliff hanger.”

“Yeah, sorry about that I’m not sure what happend, it was like you were pulled away.” She’s looking at me with a cute apologetic smile.

“It’s ok, like you said you can’t control it.” I shrug my shoulders playing it cool, no way am I telling her that the real reason is because my Mom woke me up.

Awkward silence.

“So um, I hope this doesn’t seem rude but, who exactly are you guys and why were those guards trying to stop you?” That’s right she doesn’t know that she just helped a jail break, Logan chooses this moment to jump in.

“I’m Logan, Hank already told you his name but, the guy sitting in front of you is-”

“Erik and the man sitting next to him is Charles and,” She says turning to look at me with a shy smile, “You’re Peter.”

“How did you know mine and Charles’ names?" Erik asked and she turns to Erik.

"Your names were the first I heard when I first heard what was going on. Also you never answered my second question, what was going on?”

Charles and Hank look at each other like they’re trying to decide if they should tell Fairy the truth but, before they can decide Logan decides for them.

“We broke Erik out of jail.”

Her eyebrows raise, "… Jail like as in ‘you did something illegal and you’re going to jail’, jail?“

"Yeah that’s the one.” Wow Logan’s being really calm about this like it’s normal for him, I mean it’s normal for me so this is more exciting than anything else but, it’s just sort of suprising that he can be so calm about this.

“But that was the Pentagon,” Now she’s looking at Erik, “What did you do to land up in there?”

“They put him in there for killing the President.” Logan said.

Fairy pauses for a second then her gaze shifts from Logan to Erik and then stops on me, eyebrows raised and she mouths, 'Wow.’

“I know, right?” I mouth to her and the corner of her mouth twiches upwards.

“Well ok then.” She’s not screaming, that’s good, “So where exactly are we going?”

“We’re going to an airport where Logan, Hank, Erik and I are going to catch a flight and Peter and you will not be coming.” Apparently Charles can be rude too.

“Thanks by the way kid for stopping those guards.” Logan thanked her.

“Speaking of which; what exactly did you do, are you a telepath?” Hank asked.

“No I’m not, I can manipulate sound. What I did was I manipulated my voice to a frequency that’s more um… compelling? There’s probably a more scientific explanation for it.” Fairy explained.

“Sound wave manipulation that’s facinating. That’s how you could hear that something was happening back at the Pentagon wasn’t it?” Hank seems excited to find out how Fairy’s mutation works.

“Yes it is, I don’t know the full limit of my abilities but with the things I know how to do I have near full control.”

“We’re here.” Hank said with a hint of disappointment when we arrived at the airport.

Hank parked the car next to the plane and we all exited the vehicle, Logan stopping Fairy before she could get out of the car through my side telling her,

“We need to talk kid.”
