"There's a group that despises mutants to an unhealthy extreme, because they believe it's something they should have grown past." She exhaled. "One thing I always wanted to do, even... with the groups I ran with, was bring the health care over here to you guys. I know you've all managed before, but the health care's such that if you somehow get cancer, you can be cured. Birth defects are nearly unheard of. Sh*t, I can't remember really the last time I heard of someone dying of an accident, outside of Kris's dad."
I stare at the girl in the mirror: T-shirt, torn up jeans, no beauty queen.
But the way that you see me, you get underneath me, and all my defenses just fall away, fall away.
I am beautiful with you, even in the darkest part of me. I am beautiful with you;
Make it feel the way it's supposed to be!
You're here with me: Just show me this and I'll believe I am beautiful with you!
