Kurt questions his teaching authority
He took of his jacket and hung it on the back of his chair and undid the top few buttons of his shirt. A cool breeze floated around the room calming him down slightly. He knew he was not bad looking for a mutant but he wasn’t vain, in the eyes of God that was a sin. He was well built and muscled but not grossly so, and it wasn’t because he spent all his time body building or working out in a gym. If he had had his way these muscles wouldn’t be there in the first place. His mother had put him in a circus for the amusement and entertainment of others. Because of his amazing agility and acrobatic skills he was made to perform almost every night, the audience assumed his features and skin colour were part of the act, a costume but the people he called family knew different. At night he was forced to be locked into a cage as he couldn’t be trusted. His younger self used to pretend he was a pirate on the high seas to get rid of the horrors of it.
Kurt sighed. His contact with his mother had dropped. She like most of the town’s people blamed him for the innocent killings of their children when in fact it was Kurt’s brother. He had gone slightly insane and Kurt was honouring the pact that they had made when they were younger “if one of us kills or harms an innocent human and or mutant we must promise that we bring the other to justice”. Kurt hadn’t meant to kill him but they were fighting and Kurt accidently broke his neck. His mother assumed he was the child killer and banished him. He was chased from the town by an angry mob calling him a demon and attacking him. That’s when professor Xavier had found him and practically saved his life and Kurt knew he owed that to him. That’s why he worked here. He’d always wanted to work as a Priest but a R.e teacher and Doctor at the School was good enough for him.
The bell rang at the end of the period signalling the next one. He stood up re-buttoning his shirt and re-putting on his jacket. The room started filling up and the students moved to their desks. She was the last one in and she stood at the side of the room looking awkward. Her gaze never left the floor. He felt guilty and ashamed to how reacted to her in Charles’s office but he knew it was for the best. “Guten Tag class as you can see ve have a new pupil” he gestured in Simians general direction. “Zis ist Simian Lorenzo und I hope you’ll all make her feel velcome.” Kurt leant back on the desk watching the class, whilst they were all watching her. He could see why. One of the pupils in the front row had asked what her mutant name would be and she stood there looking puzzled tapping her chin before finally deciding. “I think it would probably be Static” She said grinning. Kurt honestly felt curious, he turned to face her “Vhy?” She didn’t wipe the grin of her face instead she gentle leant forward and placed the palm of her hand on a metal table leg. A small yet sharp burst of electricity sent currents throughout everything metal in the class making the class jump. Kurt dropped his cross into his pocket rubbing his hand. “Okay class settle down, Miss Lorenzo if you could take a seat.” He gestured to a spare desk at the back “Okay everyone get out your books und turn to ze page ve vere on last”.
