And part 2- the students reaction..
You got to be kidding!
Did you see that?
Did she just kiss Mr. Summers?
I think its romantic
John, Remy, Jubilee, Bobby and Kitty looked out the window in the girls
room and almost couldnt believe their eyes.
You got to be joking? Romantic? Kitty, hes old enough to be her
father! Bobby said disbelieving.
No, hes not. And I still think its romantic Kitty insisted.
Whats romantic, douchka* ? Peter asked as he came up behind
Kitty and lay his arms around her. Kitty leaded against him and enjoyed the
feel of his strong arms around her. Peter and Kitty had been dating for over a
year now, ever since Peter had come to the school after his parents had
moved to the US from Russia.
Rogue and Mr. Summers. I think they are in love She answered softly.
Really?? I had no idea, Peter said surprised.
Neither did we, Mon Ami Remy said and turned towards the happy
couple when Scott ands Rogue had disappeared inside the Mansion with the
Professor. He had first come to the school three weeks before Rogue and Scott
had taken off on their trip so he had nothing against them being together.
Am I the only one who can see whats happening here? Hes using
her! Bobby said furiously.
You are just jealous. You need to cold down John said and laughed
at his own joke while Bobby looked ready to explode.
Jubilee began but stopped as the topic of discussion
entered the room. Rogue looked at her friends who stared silently at her. It
was a very uncomfortable silence which lay in the room like a cloak and now
she wished she had taken Scott with her as he had offered. Ignoring them
she went to her bed and started packing her stuff together which wasnt
much to begin with. Remy was the first to break the silence.
So, now I guess itll never be you and me, eh? He said and leaded
over her seductively with a smile and a gleam in his eyes. Rogue
couldnt help smiling at him.
Ah guess not
Are you saying youre really together?? With him?? With Summers???
Mr. Tight-Ass Summers? Bobby yelled furiously.
Hey, cold down, Mon Ami Remy said and lay a hand on his shoulder
which he shook off.
Stay out of this He snared.
Look, Bobby. Ah know you have strong feelings for me but Ah love
Scott. Please try to understand, She said, slowly getting angry herself.
These where her friends. They were supposed to help her.
No, I dont understand. I love you Rogue! He doesnt love you, he
never will. Hes just using you as a replacement for Jean Bobby said
Peter began but an ice stare from Bobby
How dare you?! You know nothing about me or Scott. You dont know
him. You never even tried to. All you saw was the shield he held up to the
world. But did you ever try to look behind the glasses and find a person?
Her voice was now almost as loud as his.
I dont believe this. He has you right where he wants to. Dont
you see what hes doing?? Bobby advanced at her but she was so angry she
didnt back down. In their anger they hadnt seen Jubilee run out the
room to find Scott.
I know what hes doing. Hes loving me like no one ever has She
Why dont we all
Kitty began and tried to smooth the waters.
She hated fighting and wanted them to stop.
Stay out of this, they both yelled furiously before going back to
staring evilly at each other. Kitty winced and Peter drew her into his
embrace before standing protectively in front of her.
You slept with him?? Bobby asked shocked. Rogues blush was all
the confirmation he needed. Tears formed in his eyes and pain weighed
heavily in his voice.
How could you?? Pain gave way for an overwhelming anger. You
whore! He yelled furiously, the tears almost blinding him. Rogues eyes
was alight which anger and she removed her glove and Bobby made ice appear
in his hand.
You have no right to judge me. She spat out furiously.
Thats enough. Move away from each other Peter said and placed
himself between the two of them but Rogue was too slow and her ungloved hand
touched him. Luckily Peter was quicker than her and instantly used his
mutant powers to turn himself into steel.
Peter! Are you ok? Kitty asked worried as she came to him.
Ah´m so sorry. Did Ah hurt you? Rogue asked concerned while still
keeping an eye on Bobby.
No, Im fine. My mutation saved me Peter answered but still
Then move out of the way. This has nothing to do with you Bobby
Peter and Kitty looked from one friend to another, not knowing what to do.
Stop! Whats going on here? Scotts voice cut through the
tension in the room. He walked over to Bobby and Rogue. He saw her ungloved hand
and the ice in Bobbys hand and a frown covered his brow.
You ok, love? He asked Rogue concerned and took her ungloved hand
Ah`m now She said and nestled against Scotts chest.
Whats the problem, Bobby? Scott asked and stared with his red
glasses at the boy. Bobby tried to hold the stare but broke it in the end.
Nothing he said as tears ran down his cheeks and ran out. Scott
looked down at Rogue in his arms.
Was it nothing? he asked worried.
Yeah Scott wasnt sure he believed her to he let it go.
