Series: Cutting Loose ~ Intermission
Summary: POV from the gang at the Mansion
Author's Note: Tish made me do it. She said I needed to let everyone know
going down at the Mansion after Scott and Marie took off. This is by far not
work. And it might be confusing. You have been warned.

We start off in Jubes and Kitties room.
When Remy had gotten here, he'd never thought this place would turn out to
be like the
Mutant equivalent of those soap operas Tante Matte was always watching.

was feeling an attraction towards someone else. So, when he had felt the
attraction between Rogue and Scott he'd known that they would be together
Just like he had known about Bobby and St. John and the Petite and
himself. You just
could not feel that much attraction toward another person and not feel the

wanted him or if it was just his gift that was attracting them. So, he just

would be so much better if he had no conscience Remy thought to himself.
He looked over at Jubilee again and found her looking at him. Smiling Remy
blew her a
kiss. She blushed and he chuckled. He knew he was the only one who could
like that. He was so happy she had stopped fighting her attraction to him.
Being in love
wasn't so bad. Remy hoped that Rogue and Scott would be happy together 'cause
as he was concerned they deserved it.
Jubilee could feel herself blushing but couldn't stop herself. Oh that
Cajun! Only he
could make her lose her cool like that. But it had been sweet him blowing her

that. If only he was always that sweet, but oh no, he had to be sexy and
vexing and oh so
luscious. Boy was it getting hot in here or what. She started fanning herself
with her hand
attempting to cool herself down.
She looked back at Remy to find him still watching her. Oh man, what had
done to deserve such a man. O.k. Jubes cool down there's time enough for that

A choice that had set the whole school on its ear Bobby observed. He

He butted his way into Kitty and Johnny's discussion and added his vote

The fact that the Professor had allowed it was enough to blow one's mind.
Xavier had been looking forward to Scott and Jean getting married. It was
that he would condone Scott going off alone with a seventeen-year-old girl.
Not that he thought that his friend would do anything unseemly. It was
confusing. No one was as they had been. He had been gone to long to just step

He wondered if he would ever feel the same comfort and security here as he
had in the
past. He doubted it. He began another complicated experiment trying to take
his mind off

Finally, we are transported to Jean's room where we find not only her but
Logan stood naked in front of Jean's window wishing he could erase the
last couple of
hours. Why the hell had he slept with her? It had to be one of the top five

But although she had ripped into the room with a passion she had just lain
there like a
statue and he'd done all the fucking. Not that she hadn't enjoyed it. She
just hadn't done
anything for him. Taking everything and not giving anything in return.
He actually had to give Summer's credit for staying with her for so long.
If she was
always that bad in bed then he didn't know how the man had been able to take

as he did. Thinking of Summers made him remember that he was off some where

she could be

might have had at a relationship with him.
What was wrong with her? She had just lain there like a board as he
pounded into her.
And all she could think of was Scott and how much she wished it were him and
