Work Text:

'I was looking at some old photos,' Jono says. 'Back from when – when we were...'


Jono nods. 'You've changed. I guess I have, too.'

'Yes. I guess we'd have to change,' Paige says. 'Seven years – even a non-mutant would have replaced every cell in their body since then. You'll have done it more often than that. Me, three or four times.'

'Yeah. I just hadn't expected it.'

Paige hesitates. 'Could we – is it worth trying to start over again? Have we changed enough for it to work this time? Or – maybe too much?'

He grins. 'It's worth a try.'
