In the living room the whole team was gathered and wore expressions of concern. Or rather, Caleb, Cole, and Wesley look concerned, and Austin just appeared... irritated? Maybe? His expressions were becoming harder to read by the day.

“If you’re done having a cry, Christina, the boys would like you to go get checked out so the rest of us can get on with our day,” Austin drawled. I smothered a small grin. My flushed face must have looked like I had been crying. Silly boy, I’m not that weak.

I didn’t grace him with a response; instead, I went to the couch and made myself comfortable on the opposite end from Cole. Once seated, I unraveled the bandage on my wrist, despite the sharp protests first from Caleb then Cole. I hadn’t realized the scary guy had a soft side, but it made my mouth quirk in a little smile as I finished unwrapping the bandage. Once done, I held up my hand and flexed it a few times, showing them it was good as new again.

Stunned silence blanketed the room. I had their full attention.

“That’s not possible,” Wesley blurted out, the first to recover. “I examined it. That was a really bad break; you should have needed surgery!”

“Or maybe she was just being a drama queen and you need new glasses,” Austin contributed helpfully.

Wesley glared at him and defensively pushed his glasses up his nose.

“No, Wesley’s right,” I defended him. “It was a pretty bad break, and not just my wrist but a few bones in my fingers too.” Four baffled expressions turned in my direction, all except River’s. He’d been there as it healed.

“So I guess I should explain a few things about myself...”

“You think?” Austin snorted, and Caleb hurled a cushion at his head then indicated for me to go on.

“I have a couple of unique abilities I’ve been keeping quiet about that contribute to why I’ve been able to accomplish such seamless thefts.” Wesley’s eyes lit up with interest; it had been bugging him that he couldn’t work out some of my access points. I considered just how much I should share, but then decided to rip off the Band-Aid. “I have a somewhat exaggerated strength and speed, and as you can see, I can heal myself.”

Cole grunted thoughtfully. “You seemed pretty strong for your size.”

I coughed out a laugh. “Actually, that’s nothing. I’ve been deliberately holding back to a more normal level. Same with my speed.”

“Can you explain how the healing works?” Wesley prompted, curiosity burning in his face. The academic in him had to be just dying to pick me apart.

“Well, obviously I’ve never volunteered myself for testing or anything, but as near as I can tell, it just requires a trigger, much like an adrenaline surge, so for lack of a better scientific description, that’s what I think of it as. When I’m feeling scared or in danger or really excited, I get this, sort of, rush of adrenaline through my body that heals up any injuries I have at the time.
