    Summary

    A mutant temporarily changes Charles's body, and Erik doesn't understand why Charles has taken a step back.

    Charles sighs; he's been oblique partly out of consideration to Erik's sensibilities, but apparently Erik is going to make him spell it out. "I know you don't like women," he says gently.

    Erik's expression doesn't change. "But you're not a woman."
