Raven sat, typing at her PC. On the screen were bandits unaware of her movements. She pushed the button on her mouse to activate her bow. Aiming she shot at one of the bandits and it died instantly. The others looked around, now aware of someone's presence, while her current ally went after them slaughtering the rest. It was Skyrim. One of the most addicting, yet buggy, games of all time. At one point she felt a breeze behind her and wondered if someone had come in and opened her window without permission. Turning her head she saw that it remained closed. A look of confusion appeared on her face. When she turned to look back at the computer in front of her a silver haired man blocked her view. Raven let out a scream and the man ran behind her to catch her in her chair as she fell back. How did he do that that fast?
"Who are you?" she demanded, getting out of the chair. The man placed it back into place and looked to the door. There stood someone she knew all too well. A man she remembered helping in the past. Although she may have been human, Charles Xavier had asked her to help him at his school for gifted youngsters. That was a year ago. "Who is he?" she repeated the question but to Xavier.
"This is Pietro Maximoff, but we call him Peter," Xavier answered.
"Others call me Quicksilver," Peter said really fast running around the room and stopping next to Raven.
"Like Sonic," she joked.
"Raven, this is serious," Xavier said. "I need him to stay with you. He's been trouble as of late. I'll explain more later." Xavier turned to leave and Raven turned to Peter.
"What did you do?" Raven asked seeing if the silver haired male would like to talk about it.
"I'm still confused about it myself," he said. " This is a nice place you got here though."
"I haven't showed you around yet," Raven replied.
"Oh I already checked it out while Charles was talking," Peter boasted.
"That fast?" Raven looked at him shocked. He just smiled a smug smile.
"I see you have games, can I play some," he swooped to the computer and looked at the paused Skyrim screen.
"I'd kind of rather not have someone I just met on my computer,"she confessed. "I do have a Playstation 2 though."
"Playstation 2?" he asked.
"How can you not know what a Playstation 2 is," she raised a brow. Peter looked nervous for a second.
"How about you just show me."
Within moments Raven was back on Skyrim while the swifty Quicksilver played Shadow the Hedgehog on the PS2.
Over the weeks Raven had grown fond of her new roommate. He'd only go out for a short time, considering it didn't take him long to do what he needed. Peter just sat on her bed watching her play Minecraft. He noticed how one of the mobs could pick up flowers and came to an idea. Without Raven noticing he ran out and ran back sticking a purple flower in front of her face.
"What's this for?" she asked.
"Just, you know," Pietro blushed. Raven took the flower and felt the petals. She smiled a sweet smile.
"Thank you," she said.
"No problem," the speedy silver haired man replied. "I was also kind of wondering, since we've known each other for a while, if you wanted to go out?"
It was now Raven's turn to blush. Her smile grew and she nodded her head. "Yes, I'd like that."
"Good, because you are beautiful," it didn't take long for him to get close. He quickly kissed her but then she grabbed the back of his head and pulled him into a nice long kiss. Her arms went around his neck while he tried to get more comfortable where he was standing so that the kiss would deepen. Never had she felt someone's lips so soft and never has he been so fond of a girl. The kiss broke and they looked deep into each other's eyes.
"When's our first date," Raven whispered.
"It can be right now if you want," instantly she was picked up out of the chair and he held her close as he took her to only they know where.
