"What's with the 'bad boy' attraction?"
"What do you mean, Billy?" Kate asked.
"Well, excluding the whole librarian thing, Eli probably counts. And you were sort of interested in Tommy for a while."
Kate felt her eyebrows almost hit her hairline. "Are you asking me why I'm not attracted to you?"
"What? No!" Kate smiled a little at how fast Billy answered that.
"Then what?" She blinked. "And who else are you talking about?"
"Well, Tommy's dating Megan. And last night I was on IM with Vic. You know, Anole?" Kate nodded. "Apparently, he's, uh... seeing Julian."
"Really?" She asked, surprised. "That's one I hadn't seen coming."
"So what's the attraction?"
"Didn't you used to have a crush on the Human Torch?"
Billy blushed. "Uh, I guess."
"It's the same thing." Kate's iPhone beeped. She reached down and fished it out of her purse. "Bank robbers downtown." She read. "Patriot's requesting back-up." Kate dropped her phone back into her bag and stood up. "But just for the record, Billy? I can't really answer your question. Eli couldn't really be a 'bad boy' at heart, no matter how hard he tries."
