Jean-Paul naked

Tangled Web (What’s Past is Prologue 15/18)

“I’m glad you came,” Rick said, kissing Jean-Paul briefly and ushering him in.

“Moi aussi.”

“Did you have any trouble finding the place?”

Jean-Paul shook his head. “I used to live not far from here. I know places to land around here.”

They sat down together in the living room. “I’m still kind of struggling to assimilate that information.”

“What information?”

“That you can fly.”

Jean-Paul shrugged. “You saw me flying. When I was being ‘menacing,’ remember?” Rick opened his mouth to say something, but Jean-Paul stopped him. “I know, I know. You didn’t mean anything personal by it.” He touched Rick on the arm. “I believe you, copain. And I understand it is hard to assimilate, as you say. Lots of people feel that way at first. Particularly those who haven’t been around mutants much.”
