An All New Romance

**I spent ages writing out an explanation in the first chapter, so you don't need to know anything X-Men to read! Rated Y for sexual innuendo, mild sexual scenes, mild violence and language. I wouldn't class it R, but I see that some people might.** With Scott Summers about to leave the rest of the time displaced, original X-Men to go travelling with his father, will Warren confess his feelings for the boy with the red sunglasses?


32. Hot Coffee

Scott paced the main entrance to the New Xavier School. Warren should be back by now - he'd been gone over twenty four hours, with no contact. The others had begun to worry too by now, but not half as much as Scott. Scott knew how angry Warren was at his confession about Laura. He could be anywhere.

"Anything?" Jean appeared beside Scott, passing him a hot cup of coffee. Scott shook his head. "I just don't understand. Why would he take off like that? He seemed fine last time I saw him."

"He's upset." Scott replied mindlessly, sipping at the coffee. It burnt his lips slightly, but he didn't care. Without Warren, he just felt numb.

"Why?" Jean's voice was laced with her confusion.

"Because..." Scott trailed off when he noticed the way she was looking at him. "No, Jean! Stay out of my head!"

"Sorry." She blushed. "I just thought maybe I could-"

"No!" He repeated.

"Sorry." She said again.

"I'm going to look over his room again. See if I can figure anything out." He murmured, passing the near-full, steaming coffee back to her.

"Why do you care so much?" Scott stopped at the sound of her words. "You've never really liked Warren. I know how much he annoys you."

"I'm a leader. Him being missing hinders my team." Scott replied dismissively, before disappearing off down the corridor.

Upon reaching Warren's room, he found it in a perfectly ordinary state. Of course, he already knew that, he'd checked at least seven times before. But this time, something caught his eye - Warren's cell. If Warren was in New York with Julian, there was only one way to find out.

He pushed every button around the phone until the screen lit up, then followed the on-screen instructions to unlock it. He fiddled awkwardly with the touchscreen until he found the 'Call' option. Flicking through the very limited contact list, Scott soon found Julian's name. He pressed the screen slightly too hard and the phone began to dial. He lifted it cautiously to his ear.

"Warren! Thank god, I-"

"Guess again." Scott cut off Julian's words bluntly.

"Oh... Urrr... Cyclops... I thought that Angel was calling me. We have some things to discuss and I haven't spoken to him in a while." Julian's response was sufficiently awkward.

"Wait." Scott's heart began to best faster. "You mean he's not in New York with you?"

"No..." Julian sounded confused. "I thought he was up there with you?"

"He's gone." Scott replied bluntly.

"Gone?" Julian's tone developed into one of worry and panic. "What do you mean 'gone'? Gone where?"

"I don't know!" Scott practically yelled.

"Calm down. We'll figure this out."

"We?" Scott sounded insulted.

"Have you asked Miss Frost?" Julian pushed, ignoring Scott's question. "She's good at this stuff."

"They're all off chasing new mutants." Scott tried to push his panic down, but it soon resurfaced.

"Okay. Okay." Julian took a deep breath. "Laura. You need Laura."

"What?" Scott was a little taken aback by the suggestion.

"She can track him." Scott felt slightly stupid. He was supposed to be the fearless leader, yet here he was in complete tatters whilst his boyfriend's bit-on-the-side formed a plan.

"Yeah. Okay. I'll- I'll talk to her." Scott tried to reorder his head.

"And Scott," Julian spoke up before Scott could cut the line. "I'm sorry. I didn't mean to hurt him. I'm sorry for-"

"Save it." Scott snapped, and hung up. He was angry. Angry at Warren for running off. Angry at Julian for everything he'd done. But most of all, angry at himself.

He tugged the door open strongly, storming out into the hall, towards Laura's room.

"Laura?" He knocked quickly on the door. "Laura, are you in there?"

"What?" Came the irritated response from inside.

"I really need your help!" Scott leant on the door. "Please, help me."

"What is it?" Laura threw open the door and Scott stumbled inside.

"I need you to help me find Warren. He's gone. And I need to find him before- before he does something stupid!" Scott fought away the lump in his throat.

"Why? Why would I do that?" Laura crossed her arms over her chest.

"Because you're part of my team. And right now, your team needs you. I need you." He offered her his hand. She evaluated the offer in her mind. It felt nice to be part of a team. She took his hand cautiously, interlocking their fingers.

"Where did you last see him?"
