W: Raven was the one that started the whole codename thing. After that beach debacle, there hasn’t exactly been a moment where someone decided it’d be a good idea to bring it up.

It is one of those days. One of those days where everything goes wrong. First the eggs burn (and really that should have been the first sign, everything bad happens when the eggs burn. The eggs had burned that day on Cuba), then Alex loses control and ends up burning acre of property. It was going to take weeks for that to grow back. Thankfully no one had been hurt. Everything spiralled out of control after that. Charles even snaps by the end. Ends up screaming himself hoarse, frightening Alex, Hank, Sean and the newly formed Darwin into silence. They had never seen Charles lose control before. Wesley on the hand, had seen it many times.
Wesley leaves Charles alone for the rest of the day, knowing full well what would happen if he didn’t. He doesn’t start looking for Charles until the clouds are dark and night has fallen upon them. It takes him only minutes before he finds Charles burying his head in one of their pillows. Charles raises his head when Wesley enters. Wesley makes a point of ignoring the tears that slide down Charles’s cheeks. Instead he chooses to sit on the edge of their bed.
“Charlie, you gotta stop this moping. Gotta face the day.”
“I’m not moping.”
“You’re stronger than this. We’ll figure out how to cure your legs. Find the right wax.”
“I lost more than just my legs that day.”
He clenches his fists, eyebrows narrowing. He’s glad Charles can’t see him.
“Stop thinking him as a loss.”
