Notes: If you want to see the kewl graphic I made
with it (this one's my best yet!), check out
Take your straight line for a curve
Make it stretch, the same old line.
Try to find if it was worth what you spent
Why you're guilty for the way
You're feeling now
It's almost like being free
And I know soon you will be
Over the lies, you'll be strong
You'll be rich in love and you will carry on,
But no - Oh no
No you won't be mine.
Part 1: Logan
Logan lay back on the bed and crossed his arms over
his chest. It didn't surprise him at all that Chuck
had saved the room for his return, had left everything
exactly as it was when Wolverine left. It had
surprised him that almost no one found his return
unexpected: Xavier only smiled at him from across his
desk, Scott had welcomed him back like he'd run out to
the store, and Storm barely reacted at all. Only
Rogue and Jean showed any surprise. Of course, it had
been more excitement than surprise from Rogue, but
Jean... Jean seemed genuinely shocked.
//Did she really think I wouldn't come back?// As
much as he wanted to think he could go the rest of his
life without ever seeing her again, Logan knew there
was no chance he'd succeed. No matter how Jean felt,
he needed her. Like Rogue, Jean had seen inside him
and not run away. Despite, or maybe because of, all
his faults and flaws and neuroses, she found him
interesting. //Or something.//
//And then there's Scooter.// Logan felt his claws
itching to emerge beneath his skin at the thought of
Scott Summers spending every night of his life with
Jean. //It's bad enough that I can't have her.
Doesn't help things that one-eye can.// Still, he
found it impossible to conjure any reason Scott
wouldn't make Jean happy, any reason Scott wasn't
perfect for her in every way. That just made it
Logan snorted in disgust. //Quit dreamin'. She's too
good for you and you know it.// Trying to push all
thoughts of Jean from his mind and failing entirely,
Wolverine closed his eyes, abandoning himself to the
nightmares once again.
