In retrospect, Wanda would have to think about how truly stupid she was to invite Gambit to meet her at her apartment. He was a criminal mercenary, he'd worked for Magneto and Sinister; but for some reason, Wanda trusted Remy. And anyway, hindsight was always twenty-twenty. Still with the belief that this would only take a moment, that she would be right back at Nick's party before the stroke of midnight, Wanda stepped into her dark apartment to wait for Mr. LeBeau. The place felt strange, as it had for days, somehow empty. Anything of any value to she or Pietro was in boxes at the Avengers Tower and all that was left here was a few changes of clothes and the furniture she had no intention of taking with her. It didn't even seem like her own space anymore. She'd be glad when they move was finished. Wanda groped on the wall for the light switch but when she flicked it, nothing happened. Frowning she tried again and still there was nothing. Strange, the power wasn't supposed to be cut until the following week. The only light in the place filtered in from the windows and she could barely see a foot in front of her as she fumbled in the dark to fruitlessly try a lamp. The power company would be closed so late on New Years Eve, there was nothing she could do about it now. She'd have to call Remy back and agree to meet him somewhere else.
