CHARACTERS: Scarlet Witch & Urge.
DATE/TIME: Thursday, February 3rd, 2011.
LOCATION: Xavier's; Urge's Office.
TOPIC: Time for a change.
It had been a little over a month since 'the incident' and Wanda was (slowly) regaining her freedoms. She'd spent two weeks under carefully monitored 'house arrest' in her own living quarters, but once Professor Xavier was satisfied that she didn't intend on doing further damage (to either herself or anyone else), he'd allowed her to leave her room - as long as that time spent outside of her room was supervised, of course. She hadn't quite earned back enough trust to go about her daily routine alone, but she'd made her peace with that. Besides, she'd been enjoying the companionship and the conversations with those who had been assigned to watch over her. Not all of them had treated her poorly (even though she knew she was perfectly deserving of such treatment), but she knew it had (mostly) been at the Professor's insistence.
Today, however, was her weekly session with Dr. Russell Holden. Though, instead of remaining within her room, she'd been allowed to have this session in the good doctor's office. It was well-lit and pleasantly warm - not that her room wasn't, but having spent so much time cooped up in there, it had become a rather dreary place, regardless. As the redheaded gypsy took a seat on one of the leather-bound chairs in front of Russ' desk, she gave the man a small smile and crossed her legs beneath her brown, velvet skirt. While her spirits were certainly higher than they had been in previous weeks, Wanda knew that there were still changes to be made and things she must to do, before she (and the others) could move on and make true peace with the situation she'd so recklessly caused.
"So," she began, "I've been thinking it's time I.... apologize." Scarlet Witch had been avoiding the stares of the parents she'd affected for weeks and though she was afraid of what their responses (or actions) may be, she felt it was time to 'bury the hatchet', so to speak. Wanda's chin rose and her dark gaze met with the therapist's, trying to gauge his expression. He'd told her (weeks ago) that this was a decision she'd had to come on her own, but she didn't know if she was acting prematurely or not. "Do you think this is the right time?"
