"You know, I wasn't expecting you to say yes to this." Elisa Maza admitted before taking a sip of her coffee. Scott Summers' eyes lifted to hers, a smile gracing his lips.

"Didn't think I was someone that could sit and relax with a friend?" Scott questioned, and let out a laugh. "I give off the impression that I'm some hard non-fun having rock of a man. I just want everyone to do their best… and to do that; everyone has to work for it. Might not make people like me very much, but then that isn't the point of being a leader – not the main one anyway."

"I think the X-Men are very lucky to have a member like you, hard-working and the strength you have for doing this for so long. And your teammates know they can depend on you for anything." Elisa stated with a reassuring smile, gently laying her hand on top of his.

"And I'm sure Goliath and the others are very lucky to have you as their friend. You might not be able to throw fire balls or have a mutant ability, but even I know you would be a force to be reckoned with if anyone hurt you or anyone you loved." Scott stated, turning his hand that she had held over so that she could hold onto her hand.

"I'm glad you accepted today," Elisa said, grinning.

"I am as well," Scott admitted before taking a sip of his coffee. "I think we should go get dinner sometime."

"As in a date?" Elisa questioned, her eyebrow raised in interest.

"Of course," Scott stated, grinning.

"Well, in that case, dinner sounds lovely, Scott."
