Thread: Spider-Man and Shadowcat
Who; Peter and Kitty
When; Sometime this afternoon, before Peter gets Hank's email
Where; The computer lab
What; Peter needs someone to talk to, because he doesn't want to freak MJ out. So he freaks Kitty out instead. Huzzah.
"---and then Elvyran has this look on his face like he's totally fascinated, but not in the cool, you know, 'wow, this is awesome' kind of way. I mean in a weird, I was afraid something creepy was about to happen kind of way. So he goes and sticks his hand into my arm and starts touching things, which was totally bizarre, and now I apparently have an extra bone and some kind of ... I don't know, liquid filled sac right next to where my body makes my webbing in both arms. Then, of course, they want to know what's in it, so Elvyran puts this huge needle in my arm and ... ow. Let me tell you, I've had my intestines ripped out before, and that didn't hurt as bad as this needle going right into my wrist."
Dramatic? Sure it was. But Peter hadn't actually told anybody -- not even Mary Jane -- what had happened when he'd gone down to the medlab. That, and he was freaking out, understandably. He wasn't even sitting or crouching on something, preferring to stand and pace and gesture with his hands while he spoke. His arms weren't as sore as they usually were, and while that was nice, he kind of wondered what that meant. But thank God for Kitty, really, and her ability to listen to him for that long. He'd have happily talked to himself all night, but it was nice when there was another person in the room.
"Anyway." Peter took a deep breath, running a hand through his hair. "How are you? New York obviously didn't kill you -- thank you for not dying, by the way; I'd have to find some way to blame myself for it, and I just don't have that kind of time right now."
