That night at the Xavier Institute, as everyone left the dining room, Scott lingered, hoping to talk to the professor. Professor Xavier sat at the head of the table, beside Ororo Munroe and Hank McCoy. Logan was out somewhere doing his survivor man workout, probably spearing animals with those claws of his. The professor saw Scott waiting for him and motioned for him to approach.
"What is it, Scott?" Professor Xavier asked.
"Professor, I was wondering if Cerebro had picked up any new mutants today?" Scott asked.
"Not to my knowledge. Why do you ask?"
"There's a new girl at school, staying at the Brotherhood House. She essentially outed herself as a mutant to the entire cafeteria during lunch."
"Very daring," Ororo commented.
"Indeed," Hank said. "Sounds like Brotherhood material to me."
"She just doesn't seem like the type to stay there," Scott said. "There's something about her that seems...like she's hiding something, but I can't tell what."
"Well, she may not have used her powers yet, so Cerebro hasn't had a chance to pick her up yet. I'm sure it will soon. But in the meantime, go ahead and keep an eye on her. Maybe invite her over sometime." Scott nodded and was about to walk away when the professor added, "Oh, and what is her name?"
"Julie Summers," Scott replied. "No relations to me though, I swear."
Professor Xavier stared at Scott for a moment, then nodded. He didn't notice the three adults shocked faces. Once he was out of the dining room, Hank said, "Charles, could it be?"
Professor Xavier shook his head. "I don't know. I thought...I thought she would be at Hogwarts."
"But that is her name. Jessica and David's girl," Ororo said. "It has to be her."
"We can't be certain until we meet the girl," Xavier said. "If it's true though...why wouldn't she come here? She has to know her parents were once one of the X-Men."
"She was only two when Jessica and David were killed. Maybe she doesn't know."
"Regardless," Charles said, "if she is Jessica and David's daughter, then she belongs here. Jessica and David were a part of our family. They would want her here."
"But what about the brother?" Ororo asked. "Where is he?"
"No idea. So far as I know, he didn't obtain the X gene, so Cerebro can't find him. I've tried before, but got nowhere." Charles Xavier sighed. "We should have reached out to her sooner, but her uncle made it clear he didn't want her coming to Institute. He thought it would lead her to the one who killed her parents."
"It was never proved," Hank said. "As much as we all wanted to blame him, there was never any proof that he actually killed Jessica and David."
"Yes, but even if he didn't do it, he knows who did," Ororo said.
"Well, her uncle seems to think that she would become intent on finding out who it was. We shall have to wait and see. Hopefully one of the students can manage to bring her by; I don't want to immediately question her, but maybe we can talk to her."
