"You watched me?" Warren lifted an eyebrow and gave her a sideways smile that melted into a grin. "I'm just kidding, I know it was just because I was cloud surfing. Unless you really were watching me." He enjoyed spending time with Kitty. They got on very easily and she was one of the few people Warren felt he could be himself with. Because of this, sometimes he teased a little too much. It was something he'd reminded himself to keep in check. "It is freeing to be up there. Maybe someday I'll take you up." He was serious and not at all trying to make the offer sound like a pick up line.
"Sorry to disappoint you about the limo. Next time, perhaps. I kind of wanted to just get out and drive tonight." He could tell Kitty was joking, but still felt the need to explain himself. "It has been a long week at work. It's been a long couple of months, to be honest. With more and more mutants trying to sue over the issue of the cure wearing off and a merger with a company my father has been trying to buy out for years, I really just wanted to get away from who I am and what I do during the day. Just have a nice night with a good friend." He smirked. "So try not to butt kiss too much."
So it was January. When he thought about it Warren wondered if it had just felt that long in his head. "I can't see you tanking anything, Kit. You're a fantastic dancer. It just wasn't the right place and time. Plus you have to remember you went in after having lunch with Magneto. That had to have done something to your nerves." He didn't like the sadness in her voice or the words she was using. "It's not a silly dream, Kitty. You want to dance and there's no reason why you shouldn't." He casually reached over to squeeze her hand. "There is no reason why you can't be strong and in charge as a member of the X-Men or as a teacher at the mansion and a passionate dancer at the same time."
His hand went back to the wheel as he gave her a meaningful look about Magneto. "I heard the day after he moved in. Ororo had called to go over some of the repair costs with me and let me know what was going on. I think it's insane, personally, but I'm not the headmaster. I'll tell you one thing though. It's making me wonder if I should come back for awhile. Not that you guys couldn't handle things if I'm not there - we both know you could - but I'd feel better if I was there. I could commute to work when I needed to and work from the mansion as often as I could." This was something he'd clearly already given a lot of thought to. "I don't know. What do you think?"
