Date: Earlier in the year
Location: Germany

From the moment of birth Pietro and Wanda had been inseparable, where one went the other always followed. Even with his superspeed Pietro was always close to Wanda, and when he was out running distances that many could only fathom being crossed in a matter of minutes, he was always returning to one person. Despite their rough start in life, things at the moment seemed to be pretty good though Neither Pietro or Wanda had said such out loud on the off-chance that either of them jinxed it. Wyndham was a task master, he insisted they did their school work and didn’t much tolerate Pietro’s more anti-social behaviour. That didn’t mean that the twins had become little angels overnight. No, they were both still as messed up as ever, it was just Wyndham was putting a bit of shine on them before they were sent off to other locals.

For the time being though the twins were enjoying a moment of respite from the school work that they were being made to do. Having left Wyndham’s, now their home, they had come into town and would probably get up to no good and kick about a bit before going back home. Even here with Wyndham there were still people that looked at them funny, Pietro stood out among the crowd. It wasn’t helped either by the fact that they had the creepy twin thing going for them. Neither of them was often seen on their own and they both seemed to co-exist in a shared universe that quite happily ignored everything and more importantly everyone that was going on around them.

Pietro ducked off the streets and into the shop, the twins were now mooching around the aisles doing very little but make a nuisance of themselves. Pietro had made a beeline towards the confectionary; there was a need to eat and sugar was a pretty good way of boosting his energy. Dinner wasn't too far off so he only had to keep going for a little while longer until he was taking up even more calories. With a burst of speed, Pietro’s hand had already plucked two bars off of the shelf and stuck them into his pockets, one was his favourite bar and one was Wanda’s. Whatever he had, he would probably end up sharing with her anyway, it was how it had always been and a more permanent home wasn’t going to change that.

Pietro could already feel the eyes of the man behind the counter staring towards him, it hadn’t been long since Pestilence’s attack and the whole mutant thing was out there. Pietro didn’t react to it yet, he was used to people staring at him, they’d been doing it since the initial burst of speed had erupted. Cocking a smirk towards the shop assistant Pietro brazenly walked around to where Wanda was. ”What do you want?” Pietro’s eyes slipped away from his sister to the shelves she was looking at, moving his arm around Wanda's shoulder with a grin. "I think we've been noticed," Dropping his voice so only Wanda could hear it.

Wanda would have been happy to stay indoors, but she went out because she knew how much Pietro hated being cooped up. She didn’t like it very much either, but their current guardian was much nicer than anyone else they had stayed at since… Her face crinkled a little at a small swarm of memories, before she got back on track. At least Mr Herbert was nice when he wasn’t making them do lessons… He wasn’t warm and friendly, but she didn’t care about that too much seeing as he just wasn’t sending them back to the home and that was enough.

Dawdling along behind her brother, she saw the blur as he pocketed the candy, but she didn’t say anything. Wanda knew stealing was wrong, but enough wrong had been done to them that a few candy bars was hard to care about. They weren’t master criminals out to rob jewels worth thousands, or expensive clothes and shoes. That was another good thing about Wyndham; he bought them things. He wasn’t spoiling them, but in the home they’d hardly been able to get new clothes because they felt like it. Their guardian had provided for them above the normal essentials. Currently, Wanda was wearing a red and black patterned dress with a cardigan over the top for warmth. She didn’t much like jeans or pants. Looking up as Pietro spoke to the assistant, she regarded him with large eyes as he stepped back in and put an arm around her.

Almost automatically, she dropped her head so it rest against him, turning herself in a little. “They always notice. They don’t like us,” she muttered back to her brother. If the twins had been halfway sensible, they’d have already left (let alone not stolen in the first place) but Wanda was tired of people not liking them and so she stayed obstinately put, one of her legs moving around gently so that her skirt swirled softly around her knees. As long as her brother was there, she would be fine. It was only when they became separated that things got bad…

“Silly people…” she mumbled, talking about no one specific, just everyone who wasn’t her twin.

Wanda leant into Pietro, there were few who could cause Pietro to slow. To live in a world that was so wrong to him, but for Wanda he endured it. She could not speed up to his own speed, and so there was little choice but for him to reside at her speed. Pietro knew that Wanda wasn’t as standoffish as he was, Pietro would likely spend his entirety scrapping through life if it was required of him. Wanda though, she needed protecting and Pietro believed it was down to him alone to protect to her. Even if right now he was putting her at more harm than good.

”They are idiots.” Like his sister, Pietro was referring to everyone and no one all at the same time. People had treated them as special cases since they were small children, Pietro understood all too well what people said about Wanda behind her back. It was half of the reason Pietro had wound up in so much trouble given he couldn’t listen to it and not react accordingly.

Raising his voice back up to normal levels to annoy the shop keeper more than anything. ”Sure there’s nothing you want? We could take a look and see what else they’ve got?” He didn’t need to shoot a look towards the assistant this time. Even without looking he could positively feel the steam beginning to shoot out of the man’s ears. It gave the speedster a great satisfaction to know he was getting under the skin of someone that would treat them like trash if given the opportunity.

”You two should be on your way,” the assistant spoke to them both now with a rather stern tone in his voice. He didn’t want any trouble and he saw getting those two out as quick as he could, the best way to avoid his day getting any worse than it already was.

Pietro called the other people idiots and she nodded, still staring vaguely off into space. The twins both had low tolerance levels for many things, thanks to an unstable life. It had been good at first, but then the fire… People still blamed her for that fire even in their most recent stay at the home. Her face formed a pout and she pressed her head against her brother a little harder.

“No…” she mused. Her twin stole things, but Wanda didn’t hate him for it, just sometimes her needs weren’t much. “Maybe cake…?” he did want to please her though and who wasn’t pleased by cake? Starting to walk, she pulled him with her as they started to explore the aisles of the store, but the girl faltered when the assistant told them both to leave. Wanda frowned at the man, then looked up at Pietro. This happened all the time, even when Pietro hadn’t done anything. People saw the ‘problem children’ and treated them as if they were stray cats.

“We’ll go when we’re ready,” Wanda said, or rather mumbled, her expression darkening a little at being thrown out. A tiny part of her was whispering that they were not being well behaved, but she was so tired of rejection, of being told what to do and where to go and having every aspect of her life so far decided by the state. So right now, more so than ever, she did not feel like doing as she was told, which no doubt suited Pietro just fine. Turning around, she ducked down another aisle and started poking at the packages on the shelves, a red glow in her eyes.

There was a frown on Pietro’s face that soon softened before Wanda had a chance to see it, not because of her potential disproval over him stealing, but because she didn’t need anything. Pietro ate a lot and often, something that he didn’t get much of when in the care home. He got his three square meals a day, well ‘square’ if you counted the bad breakfasts and not overly appealing dinners. Wyndham’s take on food was far superior to what the homes and the foster homes ever managed to rustle up.

Old habits died hard though, and while Pietro no longer needed to steal things to keep his energy supplies topped up, it was a habit that he couldn’t give up. Especially when the people in the shop were going out of their way to put his back out. All he had to do was flick one of the shelves with his little finger, and there would be all sorts of chaos caused in the shop. Hell, he could do one zip around the shop and the air currents created by him would pull a lot of the items off of the shop.

Pietro wasn’t one to back down from a confrontation but with Wanda here, he wasn’t going to go right out of his way to wind up in a fight unless someone else threw the first punch.

Like a ragdoll Pietro allowed himself to be pulled along in the search of cake, he was glad that Wanda was at East going to get something. Perhaps it was a throwback to believing that what they had with Wyndham was too good to be true, that maybe one morning they would wake up and that it would all be gone again.

There was no denying that Pietro was the more assertive of the personalities, he was happy to question anyone on anything, whereas there were times where Pietro believed that Wanda would be happy if she could go by being seen by nobody other than himself. Wanda spoke back to the shop assistant, and Pietro squeezed his arm around her that little bit tighter, he saw the red glow in her eye, but he wasn’t about to tell her to calm down. They might need her powers soon after all.

Instead as Wanda prodded and poked at the packages on the shelves Pietro turned his attention to watching the assistant without turning away. The assistant by now was coming out from behind the counter. ”No, I think you should be on your way now.” In his hand was a mobile phone, likely ready to call the police should the twins refuse to do as they said.

This man was nothing to Pietro; he could take him blindfolded he was sure. So for the moment he took his eyes off of him and turned his attention back to what Wanda was poking. ”You like them don’t you?” He pointed out a cake bar a couple of shelves above Wanda’s current eye level.

Wanda knew that if she wasn’t around that Pietro would live a quick life, always darting around, always causing trouble…So it was probably a good thing that she was around to make sure that he didn’t go down that path and end up lonely. She knew how he was probably thinking…thinking about ruining things in the shop, but she could make the place just as messy with as little effort. But, she didn’t feel like doing that. Looking for cake was preferable.

But the shop assistant didn’t seem to think that they were entitled to have cake, telling them again to leave. Pietro’s arm tightened around her and for a moment she calmed as he pointed also to something she did like. He was a good brother like that.

“Yes, I like that one,” she nodded and picked up something that he too enjoyed and held it up to him with a serious look in her eyes. “And this is your favourite, yes?” his favourite could easily be anything, but just because he had a large appetite did not mean he was not partial to some things more than others.

“You have to leave. Now. I will call the police on you…”

Wanda stared, absolutely stared at the assistant as if he had called them space iguanas. Slowly, she blinked once, twice, still the look of astonishment on her pale face. “You are very rude. How do people ever choose to shop here?” she sniffed, then gently pulled free of Pietro and with her nose in the air, the young witch sauntered over to the assistant and plucking a few euros from her pocket, daintily tossed them into his hand. Mr Herbert was rather strange but he had been mindful enough to furnish them with an allowance to buy clothes and snacks and the sort of thing a man who has never had children wishes to buy for teenagers, especially a girl.

“Come brother, we are leaving…I don’t like this silly shop,” she huffed in the doorway and primly swept out of the establishment, but not before flicking her hand at a display by the door which promptly collapsed into a jumble of wooden cubes.

Looking for cake was the distraction Pietro needed, he was a little monster, but he could hardly be blamed for that. The world around him was too slow for him, and people had never treated him in the way that would be conducive for him to behave in society. It wasn’t excusable, but it was understandable at least. Pietro smiled towards his sister, she was what mattered and he had to remember that, not let him get caught up in things that would put Wanda in harm’s way. That was easier said than done when you made decisions in a thousandth of a second.

“Yes I those are my favourites.” Pietro’s favourites happened to include chocolate and nuts, and if it had been sweets then there would be caramel involved too, but given this was cake then there was enough sugar already.

While Wanda was similar to Pietro in many ways, she was also different too, the way she handled people was different. Pietro was quick to anger, and even quicker to lash out, at people. Speed gave him the advantage in a fight, but fighting wasn’t always the right thing to do. Mr Herbert had been working on Pietro, making him see other angles when it came to dealing with others, to try and react without lashing out. It was a work in progress and Pietro was miles away from mastering this lesson.

Wanda pulled free from Pietro and she dealt with the man, Pietro quite often interjected himself in Wanda’s fights, often doing so without her knowing or so he thought, but this one he would let her handle.

She paid for their stuff, something Pietro wouldn’t have done, but what she did after that was better than anything Pietro could ever have done. A smug smirk crossed the speedster’s face as he walked out of the shop, quickly catching up with Wanda. “Where to now?” He asked, ripping open the packet of his cake, offering it first to Wanda, as he always did before breaking off a bit for himself.

They went quickly, because whatever chaos she had caused, the shop keeper would not be in shock forever from it. Just long enough for them to get out of the street and vanish into the crowds. They were good at that. They were a team. There was no need to hurry for the moment and Wanda took a morsel of the proffered cake, nibbling on it. The gesture made by Pietro was automatic, as was her acceptance. It was all they had ever known.

Having finished her cake, she slipped her arm through his. “I don’t know…You pick,” Wanda responded to her twin’s question. The dark haired girl was simply happy to be able to wander around without having to follow rules. At some point, they would need to go back to Wyndham’s house, but until then they were free. If it wasn’t for the things that their current guardian had explained to her, then she’d have wanted to be freer. But she stayed, because if she didn’t then Pietro wouldn’t stay. And then he’d only end up getting in serious trouble, worse even when they’d been back in the home, and he could even go to prison. Wanda knew she wouldn’t be able to live if they were split up for good and it scared her even more to think that Pietro might not survive without her.

“I do think I’d like a drink. Would you like a drink?” it was an empty question, as she already knew the answer. So, it would be more a case of what they decided to drink. As she had suggested the idea of one, Pietro would steer them in the direction of places and then they would decide what. Possibly coffee, or more likely juice or soda. But coffee went well with cake. Sighing slightly, she leaned against his arm as they walked. “Do you think it will be nice in America?”

At the speed they were walking at Pietro could walk indefinitely so long as he got the nutrients he needed every so often, this wasn’t a natural speed for him and one that for all but one he refused to move at. Even though they had now left the shop, there was a part of Pietro that wanted to go back and run around the shop at such speed that everything that wasn’t bolted down would come flying off the shelves, it was petty but nobody told either Wanda or himself what to do.

After Wanda had taken the offered cake, Pietro tucked into it, it wouldn’t last many seconds, sweet treats had been a rarity in their younger years and given Pietro’s need for a massive number of calories each day they were an easy way for him to get the energy he needed to keep going like a Duracell bunny. ”The Park it is then,” Pietro offered up as Wanda told him it was his choice as to where they went. Pietro liked the park it was a vast open space and when he was on his own, which was rarely, it gave him the space he needed to be able to run without feeling claustrophobic because of the buildings and manmade objects inhibiting his movements.

”Maybe by the fountain,” There was a real likelihood that there would be more people there, but it was the nicest part of the part and as Pietro was not there to run and so he had to think a bit more carefully about where they went, ”Or the swings,” They were childish, but they were less likely to get into trouble there than if Pietro was around a large crowd of humans.

”Then we shall get a drink,” Whatever Wanda wanted Pietro believed he was obliged to provide for her, even if it was Mr. Wyndham that was paying for everything. ”Coffee then?” There was a coffee place on the way to the park that they could stop off at, ”There’s a place that makes good mochas just around the corner,” They would stop there and then. As Pietro guided Wanda around the corner and towards the coffee shop, their conversation turned towards the trip to America that Pietro was most definitely not looking forward to. ”The Americans are loud, obnoxious and uncultured I’m sure we will we will suffer greatly. Though I guess, it can’t be as bad as being in the homes.” Nothing would be that bad again, and at least they’d been warned that they were going to be going. ”Though I will make sure you are safe when we are there,”

“The swings, maybe,” Wanda nodded, hoping they might find less people by the swings. She didn’t always do well in crowds. Some of the time, she would just tune things out and ignore almost everyone. The rest of the time? She just didn’t do well…

“I hope it isn’t,” she muttered as they walked to the coffee shop. After all, they were going to a school where they would live with others like them, which sounded very much like another home. But if it kept Pietro from getting into serious trouble, then it was something they were going to have to at least try. If things didn’t work…America looked like a very big place on the maps she had seen. “And if it isn’t a good place, we go?” she asked, only for reassurance. They had to move to the school. There was only so much running they could do in Germany. America might be different, easier, or the school might even be the good place they had been told.

Her pace slowed for a few yards until she picked back up again, trying to remain mindful of her brother and how being too slow too much was painful for him. The coffee shop came into sight and she nudged him. “Have you got money in your pocket?” she checked, as it was much harder to steal coffee without making a big mess. She didn’t really want mocha stains all over her clothes. “I hope the coffee in America is nice…and the food. As long as we are safe. That is the most important thing, right?” she asked him, her nerves coming through a little, although she did not want her twin to know just how scared of this new life that she really was, as he had enough to worry about.

Then the swings it would be, "If there are people there then I will scare them aware," Unless they moved on of their own accord. It would have been funny had it not been somewhat sad that because of how they both looked, they were quiet often given a wide birth.

Pietro turned and offered his sister a softer smile than most would assume Pietro was capable of, but ever since they had been old enough to talk, Pietro had been there to offer to fight off whatever demons that might plague his twin. Perhaps though given how things were around here for them, that it was a sign that going to America would be better for them, something that Pietro loathed to accept, he only wanted what was best for Wanda even if it made him feel incredibly uncomfortable.

"If this school is a terrible place we will leave straight away. There are plenty of cities in America, we can survive on our own if they are bad people." They had always survived on their own, and if it meant that he had to somehow find work to make sure Wanda was alright, then that was what he would do for her. "I bet they will not even notice us at the school anyway, they all spend too much time looking at their phones and what other people are doing on the internet to notice us."

As Wanda caught up, and asked if he had money to pay for their drinks Pietro rooted around in his pockets and brought out a handful of small change, poking about at the Euros he counted it up. "We have enough," Pietro confirmed though leaving out the part that he only just had enough to be able to get Wanda a drink, but he was not that bothered about drinking coffee. It wasn't like he eneded anything else to speed up his metabolism any farther.

"All they seem to do is eat and drink coffee, so it must be very good." It was a stereotype, but it wasn't like Wanda and Pietro had ever had a chance to travel and it was only because of Mr Wyndham that they were going to have a chance to do so now. "Don't worry little sister you will be safe wherever we go," That much Pietro was sure of.

Entering into the coffee shop, Pietro took his place in the line, looking somewhat out of place against the backdrop of people with their fancy clothes and highe nd technology.
