A sudden thought came to him, pulling his features into a frown. [b "Does this reality mean that I miss out on you guys being little? Or is this some wonky timeline jump that'll reset once we win?"]
Ari rolled her eyes slightly and kissed him. "I love you no matter what." She said as Emily giggled at them.
Alex's forehead wrinkled. [b "I feel like I'm incredibly less cool than my children are. My powers don't seem as fun, now,"] he looked to Ari with a dramatic pout.
She nodded and said. "He woke up with a flu this morning so I healed him."
[b "Someone is going to have to write down this family tree, because my head is spinning,"] he rubbed at his temple. [b "Have you been to see your brother?"]
She giggled and said. "He adopted mom around this time, Daddy. And I don't mean legally... But still."
Alex winced at the name. [b "Oh god, I don't think any amount of time would make me get used to that. Grandpa Erik? Why 'grandpa'? Can't he be like...a distant honorary uncle, at best?"]
"Grandpa Erik is here?" She asked blinking surprised and then smiled up at him.
[b "No, you're right,"] he agreed. [b "No one should have to go through any of that. Which is why we're here to make sure it stops. Even Magneto is helping, which is still incredibly weird to me. But we'll need all the help we can get."]
"no, because I know how much it'll hurt mom emotionally and psychologically if you guys get captured..." She said and looked at him. "But I don't want others like us to suffer the same way mom did..."
He grinned. [b "Maybe we'll just give him a bad case of the runs, and blame it on food poisoning,"] he teased.
[b "Are you feeling alright, with everything that's happening?"] he asked her.
"Aunt Jean would kill me." She said and smiled sheepishly. "He and Mom were having a fight about something law related and so I gave him a really bad case of flu...." She said and shrugged.
[b "Well, she didn't get her brains from me, that's for sure,"] he smirked. [b "Any chance you can give your uncle a crippling case of the flu to keep him out of our way?"]
"not exactly, I can control the body functions and heal others. I can also make them sick if need be. All I did was kick start the part of your body that produces Gamma Amino Butyric Acid or GABA for short." She explained.
[b "So your power...you control emotions?"] he asked, surprised at how calm he was beginning to feel, given that his head was reeling less than a minute ago.
