The last several months had been hard. It was strange how she could be surrounded by people that she fought alongside and trained with on a daily basis. And yet she still felt so alone. There were things that she tried not to talk to even Pietro about because she knew he would just try to keep her held back where she could be safe. And she loved and appreciated him for it. She knew that he was willing to risk anything for her and she would do the same for him. But she needed to work things out on her own. She needed to figure out what was going on in her head before her doubts and fears became worse.
Her brother was a strong personality and she knew that as much as he loved her, she knew he couldn't possibly stand the way that she had been pulling away from him emotionally and physically over the last few months. She had pulled away from everyone around her. Not just her brother. She felt betrayed and alone. She had known nothing but love from her parents and then when she had lost them, she had lost a very large part of her heart. She had been willing to try and destroy the Avengers because of their deaths. When she had learned that not only had they adopted the twins but had decided to lie about it, she had become very conflicted. She didn't know how to feel.
And Erik Lehnsherr was her real father. Magneto. The mutant terrorist.
She had been needing to get control of her emotions. It wasn't so easy. Her powers were fueled by her doubts and the fact that she was so confused and was hurting had made them harder to control than normal. She'd hidden away from the world as much as she could. She didn't want to hurt anyone because she wasn't capable of being in control of her powers. She just wanted to figure out how she was supposed to feel.
It had been a few months since they had last met. She was the one that had reached out to Erik. She wanted to meet with him. She felt as though she wasn't going to get the closure that she needed until she spoke with him again. So she made plans to meet with him in a public space that was away from the tower. It was a neutral place that neither one should feel threatened in.
Wanda had been wandering through a museum that chronicled the history of America. Why had she come here? Honestly, it just seemed like the closest place that would give her the quiet atmosphere that she wanted for this meeting. She stood staring at a display of the American flag and different other documents and photos. It was no surprise that part of the museum had an exhibit dedicated to Captain America. She had been standing there in her own thoughts when she noticed that it was unusually quiet, even for a museum. She turned her head and looked around the room carefully. He was here. She could sense him.
"I wasn't sure if you were going to show up." Wanda said as she looked down at her hands as she began picking at the sleeve of her jacket a bit. She seemed... off. She was vulnerable. She looked rough. She hadn't been sleeping well and it showed on her face. She barely looked him in the eye and she glanced around at the other patrons of the museum.
