A night out! What a concept. Who: Aurora, tag Sunfire and Quicksilver Where: Bar/club in Manhattan When: Friday night, January 8, 2010 What: Blowing off some steam. And getting drinks. Status: Incomplete Rating:PG-13
Aurora hadn't been out with people in awhile. Sure, she'd go out by herself, meet up with whomever she met up with (even if she didn't know who the hell they were), and have herself a grand old time. It was easy for her, being that person. Why she'd managed to stay stuffed down so long while boring, meticulous, irritatingly shut down Jeanne-Marie ran the show, Aurora had no idea. But she was out again, stretching her legs, and remembering exactly why it was so easy for her to lead.
It wasn't surprising to Aurora that when she went back to the X-Men, there was no overwhelming show of glad that she was back. Jeanne-Marie hadn't seemed to forge a relationship for crap, and Aurora was sort of glad to have a clean slate. There were those there that she already knew, but no one that Aurora wasn't fine to be around again. And there were many new faces to her. It was nice, it was like getting to start over with Alpha Flight again, but with a lot more people, and quite a few very powerful people.
New Years had come and gone, and apparently, leaving beer in the fridge was a one way street to no longer having beer in the fridge. Either way, Aurora wasn't too upset about it. Besides, she'd apparently struck up conversation enough to have company for the night. Aurora called a cab to meet her at the gate to the mansion earlier in the night. She didn't want the responsibility of a car. Besides, parking in Manhattan was a fiasco unto itself. She'd made plans with Shiro, and waited for him by the front door. When he finally showed up, Aurora smiled warmly. "Ready for a night out?"
