The complete truth in any case - Xavier knew the pain in the mind would always be worse than that done physically. He waved a careless hand at the mention of money. "Payments aren't an issue. I'm just glad to have this taken care of - compared to back home, this is a great deal."
He watched the reaction slowly, mouth twisting into a thoughtful frown. "Maybe you should improve on your catching skills." The shape of the cover up could be a baseball, Xavier thought. But then again - he could just as easily see it as a fist mark. He quickly changed his expression to a smile, adding, "Is there a little league around here? The sport's always amused me."
