Charles Xavier Scott summers, who was named after his grandfathers
and who was all of four years old, wandered out into the front
grounds of the mansion. The Xavier school and mansion now belonged to
his parents, Nathan and Isabella Summers, ever since his grandfather
Charles Xavier; who had founded the school passed away just two
months earlier of very old age.
The little boy came to his grandfather's grave and saw a man he
didn't know standing there.
"Hello" Charley said curiously to the unknown man. The man who was
dressed in a long black trench coat and wore a black fedora atop his
head looked as if he belonged in the 1940's. He seemed a little
suprised by the young boy's presence...as if his mind was somewhere
else... like the past. He smiled when he saw the boy. "Well hello
there my boy." he said cheerfully so as not to frighten the
child. "Your Charley, aren't you?" "Yes" the toddler replied knowing
that he wasn't supposed to come outside by himself and especially not
talk to strangers; but his boyish curiosity about this man got the
better of him.
"How do you know my name?" he asked. The man smiled. "I've heard
about you, you see I was a friend of your late grandfather's." he
knelt down in front of Charley to get a better look at his old
friend's youngest grandchild.
"Really?" Charles asked, the man with the gray hair nodded. "Yes, he
and I knew each other very well. my name is Erik Lensherr." Charley
cocked his head ever so slightly, he knew that name from some where
but he just couldn't remember. ***************
Isabella Xavier-Summers was walking through the mansion looking for
her only son Charley. She had been searching for him for a while and
was starting to worry. "Charley!" she yelled "Charley!" no reply; she
decided to use her telepathy to find the four year old. He was out on
the grounds... with a man..Magneto. Issy ran outside and towards
Charley. "Get away from him" she said angrily at magneto and scooped
her son up in her arms, holding him close to her.
Erik stood from his kneeling position on the grass by xavier's grave
and dusted his pants where he had knelt. "Isabella my dear, I'd never
dream of hurting your son, I'm just a harmless old man." Isabella
scoffed. "Harmless isn't exactly a word I'd use to describe you." she
"Mother" came a voice from the house. It was Isabella and Nate's
fifteen-year-old daughter. "Mother?" she asked when she had reached
"Jean-Marie, take your brother inside." Issy told her daughter and
handed the little Charley over to his big sister. "but mom..." she
was cut off my Isabella's stern voice. "Jean-Marie Ororo Summers; do
as I say." The girl nodded and headed towards the mansion with her
"Erik, what are you doing here?" asked Isabella. Magneto pointed to
Professor xavier's grave. "I'd think it obvious, I simply came to pay
my respects." "Well you have, now please leave." she replied. The
master of magnetism sighed. "Isabella my dear, I've been fighting
practically all my life; please I don't want to fight anymore.
Especially not here and not with you, I believe Charles would like us
to mend the rift between us." Issy looked at him a moment then
said. "Yes, on that I'll agree with you."
Erik smiled. "I'm glad we can start mending our relationship
isabella." "Me to." Suddenly a voice could be heard from the mansion,
it was Scott and Jean's son Nathan. He angrily came up to them. "What
is HE doing here?"
Magneto only sighed while isabella calmed her husband. "It's OK Nate,
he's only here to visit dad's grave; please lets not cause any
trouble." "Maybe I should leave now." "No, no Erik please stay." said
Nate looked furious and then his face softened. "OK" he said. "But if
he tries anything...." "I assure you Nathan, I will be on my best
behavior." Erik said sarcastically. He nodded, still a little worried
that magneto might try something. "Are you going to be OK? I have a
class in a few minutes." Nate told his wife. Issy nodded. "If
anything happens I'm sure I can handle it."
Nate gave her a kiss and then with one last glare at Erik that
said "if you try anything, you'll answer to me." Erik seemed to get
the meaning and smiled as if to reply. "Oh really?" With that Nathan
left Issy and Erik alone.
