Today was Open House, Kitty always loved Open House at the mansion. Not only did she get to see her parents, but she got to visit with everyone else’s family, many of whom she liked a lot. Even Amara’s family was here, all the way from South America. Kurt’s parents had come from Germany. Even Amanda’s parents had been invited, even thought their daughter wasn’t actually a mutant, just wanted to date one.
Kurt hoped that if they saw what mutants were really like, they would change their views, and had asked the Professor to invite them. After all, their only taste of mutants other than himself was Toad, hardly an ambassador for mutantkind. Hopefully they could be persuaded to relax their injunction against Kurt and Amanda dating, dating in the open, anyway. Kitty had an even better reason to look forward the gathering this year. She could socialize with everyone without having to worry about Jean doing anything to her.
