Epilogue: All Good Things Must Come To An End
As dawn arrived, Professor Xavier was kind enough to give mental
warning of his return with the rest of the student body, forcing the
nighttime liaisons of the promgoers to draw to a reluctant close.
Allen walked Jubilee back to her room, "I had a blast, Jube."
"Me, too. And I promise to wear the dress again for you
"See you this afternoon?"
"Count on it." Jubilee leaned forward and kissed her date
"Bye, Al. I had a great time."
Nadine and Remy paused outside his door, "You were the belle of
ball tonight, chere. Don't forget it."
"Here, in a proper prom farewell " Remy dipped his
girlfriend to the
floor and kissed her for a long second. "It was fun,
"I me, too bye!" Nadine started to run back down the
turned back, threw her arms around his neck, and kissed him soundly.
He pinched her chin and she grinned, "Night, Remy."
Kitty and Andy scampered down the hall to her door. "Mr. Summers
swore he'd give us KP and stable duty for a month if we did this
again," Kitty giggled. "At least we got to watch the sun
"And no prom night is complete without a kiss at the front
Andy informed her before planting one on her mouth. They grinned at
each other, then Andy headed back down the hall humming the melody of
"Livin' In A Moment." Kitty waved vigorously after him
reached his room.
"Did you have as much fun as I did?" Charlotte asked John as
dropped her at her room.
"I'm going to hang our picture over my bed when we get
"Ditto. You looked great in a tux, my man. G'night!"
"Night, Char. Don't forget to brush that straw out of your
John teased her, before heading to his room.
Bobby and Rogue carefully made their way back off the roof, then
walked arm in arm back to Rogue's room. "What a night,
said with a smile.
"I had a great time, Bobby," Marie told him wholeheartedly.
rather been with you than anyone."
"You know I'd kiss you on the lips if I could, but "
Bobby raised her
silk gloved hand to his lips and kissed it instead. Then he
whispered, "You totally knocked me dead tonight, Marie. Can we
"How `bout tomorrow?" she said immediately.
Bobby gaped, then grinned and nodded eagerly. He paused to produce
an ice rose for her, "Kiss it for me," he whispered, then
to his own room.
Marie waited until his door closed, then walked into her room and
flopped onto the bed. Jubilee and Kitty were still in their gowns
too. "I don't want to take my gown off," Kitty sighed,
herself. "That'll mean it's all really over."
Jubilee was no less starry-eyed. "I'm still too excited to
sleep, and the sun's practically up!"
Rogue didn't say anything, just grinned at them and took off her
gloves. Then she held the ice rose to her cheek with her bare hands
until it melted, letting the water drip down her skin.
One naughty little prom couple hadn't made it back to bed after
sun came up. That was because Professor Xavier hadn't considered
necessary to warn the teachers of his return. As the rising sun
bathed the scenery around the lake in shades of red and gold, Logan
and Ororo were still sitting by the water's edge in comfortable
silence. "You know," he said softly, "we ought to be
inside sometime along here."
"Mm." Storm had her head on his shoulder, lulled by the
warmth. "That's true."
There was a long pause. "You're not moving."
"Neither are you."
"Well, so long as we both agree, let's stay here."
Jean brush-kissed Scott's chin as she lay with her head on his
chest. She felt rather than saw him smile as he continued stroking
her hair. "Good thing today's Sunday," he murmured.
They'd been up all night too, although unlike their fellow
and the students, they had at least made it into bed. Their mind
link was more open than it had ever been, and with Jean's mind so
completely connected to his, Scott felt more secure and calm than he
had in his entire life. Feeling from her what he did, there was no
way he could ever question the depth of his fiancée's feelings
him, or that he returned them with equal intensity.
The first rays of sunlight were starting to creep in the window.
"That was a night to remember," Jean sighed, putting her arms
him and holding him tighter. *To think that I was afraid of you
facing another prom.* Of course, he heard her thought, but Scott
just smiled and squeezed her back.
*We've been engaged for eight months. How soon do you want to
married?* he asked her.
*Whenever you're ready. I've certainly been ready.*
*Why didn't you say so?! How about May 15?*
Jean sighed melodramatically, *I suppose I can handle waiting one
more month. But what to do in the mean time?*
*Well, for starters, what say we stay in bed for at least half the
*And then what?*
*Jump on my bike and spend the other half on a hillside somewhere.*
*Sounds good to me.*
