Disclaimer: Like I own anything.
A/N: So I thought it would be fun to do some under-appreciated, under-used pairing one-shots. One pairing per chapter and I'll only be updating once in a while (When I have writer's block for my other stories.). Also, I made Rogue's accent waaay too thick. Oh well. Never liked her, anyway.
"Pile in, everyone!" Scott called, honking the horn of his car.
Kurt bamfed into the backseat, a bagel in hand while Kitty ran right at it, phasing through the door.
Rogue was already in the car and Jean quickly ran up to it, still combing her hair.
"Jean Paul! Jeanne Marie! Come on, we're gonna be late!" Kitty called.
Another car pulled out of the mansion's garage.
Jean Paul smirked from behind the wheel, "Crowded?" He called, raising an eyebrow at the five people seated in the other car.
"If ya're late fah ya're first day of school, the professah is gonna kill us," Rogue said as both cars pulled out of the driveway.
"Then let us not be late!" Jeanne Marie laughed as Jean Paul sped off the grounds of the mansion.
Lance and Pietro leaned against the brick wall of the school, watching students file into Bayville High.
"Hey, check it out, the X Geeks have arrived," Pietro told his best friend.
Lance looked over to the parking lot eagerly, zeroing in on Kitty.
Pietro snorted, "You're-so-desperate-it's-pathetic." He said.
"They've got new recruits." Lance said, "And they've got a nice car. Wow," He breathed.
"Don't let Summers catch you gawking. You'll never live it down," Pietro smirked, walking off to speak with some girls giggling nearby.
"I'm not taking about his car!" Lance called after him indignantly.
Pietro ignored him and grinned winningly at the girls.
Jean Paul and Jeanne Marie looked around.
"Well, welcome tah BHS. Or BS, if ya prefer," Rogue said.
Jean Paul smirked slightly at this and pulled his school bag out of his silver Ferrari, "I probably will,"
Jeanne Marie went to join Kitty and listened as Kitty filled her in on all the gossip of the school.
"Who's that?" Jean Paul wondered as he followed Rogue into the school.
A white haired teenager stood off to the side of the doors, surrounded by a group of girls.
"That's Pietro," Rogue said, rolling her eyes, "He's part of the Brotherhood."
Jean Paul nodded. He had heard of the group of mutant trouble-makers, "What does he do?"
Rogue suddenly grinned, "He's fast, JP." She said, wiggling her eyebrows.
The morning passed in a blur. The students of Bayville were intrigued by the Quebecois new comers.
Girls giggle over Jean Paul's good looks (and his pointed ears) and guys talked about how 'hot that new French chick' was.
Jean Paul and Jeanne Marie sat with their fellow X Men at lunch.
Scott complained about something Lance Alvers did in biology and Kitty gossiped with Jeanne Marie. Jean, Rogue and Kurt were discussing something to do with a Danger Room training session.
Jean Paul picked at his cafeteria food and was about to ask his classmates if there was any good places to eat nearby when a voice spoke up.
"Well, well. New X Geeks."
"What do you want?" Scott snapped
Pietro and Lance feigned shock as they exchanged looks.
"What do we want?" Pietro said, "Why would we want anything?"
"Yeah, we just wanted to meet your new recruits," Lance said.
Jean Paul studied the two members of the Brotherhood. The white-haired mutant named Pietro was slimmer than his companion, whose build was more muscular. He was also quite paler and his features were more delicate and narrow.
Jean Paul thought he looked perfect.
"You mean you want to know what their powers are," Kitty said, crossing her arms.
"Well, now that you mention it," Lance said, cocking his head and scrutinizing Jean Paul and Jeanne Marie.
Pietro smirked, "Now, now, Lance," he said mockingly, "We haven't even introduced ourselves." He put his hands on his hips, "I'm-Pietro-Maximoff." He snatched Rogue's water bottle off the table and opened the cap before chucking it across the room. It hit a group of jocks and then yelled as water splattered onto them, "This-is-Lance," He gestured to his friend, "You won't be forgetting me anytime soon."
"Why not?" Jeanne Marie put in, looking irritated.
Pietro flashed her an evil grin, "Because," He turned to the table of angry jocks, and said in a less than subtle way to the X Men, "HEY! WHY DID YOU THROW THAT WATER BOTTLE AT THE FOOTBALL PLAYERS?"
He cackled and grabbed Lance before speeding away as the wet jocks approached the X Men with angry expressions.
Jean Paul zipped out of the lunch room and caught up to Lance and Pietro. He grabbed Pietro by the front of the shirt, "That was uncalled for," He said.
Pietro smirked lazily and Jean Paul wanted so badly to wipe the superior look off the white-haired mutant's face.
"I thought it was pretty funny," Pietro said, reaching up and removing Jean Paul's hands from his person, "and I found out what your powers are. Super-speed, huh?"
Jean Paul glared at Pietro and stepped back, "You could have asked."
"Yeah-but-where's-the-fun-in-that?" Pietro grinned.
Jean Paul crossed his arms, "Everything is a game for you?"
"Yup-pretty-much," Pietro smirked.
Jean Paul narrowed his eyes, "And you've won this one?"
"Well, I wasn't attacked by any football players." Pietro shrugged, looking smug. He suddenly looked serious as he took a step closer to Jean Paul, "But seriously, Jean Paul," Pietro said, butchering the pronunciation, "You do not want to try and beat me at my own game."
"It takes two to play a game, non?" Jean Paul replied evenly.
Pietro smiled wryly, "There's only one winner, though. And it's not gonna be you,"
Jean Paul raised his eyebrow, "We'll see about that,"
They looked each other up and down, sizing their opponents up.
"It-was-nice-meeting-you-Jeannie," Pietro smirked, stepping back, "Now get ready to lose."
He disappeared with his signature burst of speed and Jean Paul stood there, his eyes wide.
"What was that?" Lance suddenly spoke up, reminding the Quebecois of his presence.
Jean Paul composed himself and gave the confused Lance a curt nod before speeding away, also.
What Lance's eyes were too slow to catch was what had left Jean Paul standing so wide-eyed.
Jean Paul returned to his classmates and Jeanne Marie looked at him worriedly, "Are you alright, brother?" she asked.
He nodded and walked with her to their next class.
The afternoon passed, but Jean Paul couldn't concentrate. If he thought about it, he could still feel that moment when Pietro's lips had pressed against his.
Jean Paul didn't know why he felt like this. He completely dislike Pietro Maximoff. He was an arrogant prick (in a different way than Jean Paul, of course. Jean Paul was an arrogant prick in a good way.) and…
He was really really hot.
A/N: Yay! So that's my first pairing! Pietro Maximoff and Jean Paul Beaubier! If you liked this pairing, check out my story 'Broken Hearts' or Beaubier's trilogy, which starts with 'Thicker Than Water', I believe. Anway, I will be doing only slash pairing that _I_ like that I feel are underappreciated, but you could still request a pairing if you want. Though I'm mostly doing Evo, I'm open to pairings from the comics, too. Please review!
