"Uh, hold it one second," Remy whispered. The group paused,
back at him. "To get to Logan's room, we have to pass Mr.
room AND Ms. Monroe's!"
"Kitty, step away from the wall. If you have an accident,

"Yeah, yeah, she'll fall into one of their rooms and join the

then covered their mouths to smother the hysterical giggling.

you just being
nosy, or are they REALLY having fun?"
"Oho, loads!" Charlotte chuckled.
They continued tiptoeing and slowed to nearly a crawl as they reached
the two succeeding bedroom doors that meant death if any of the
occupants caught them. "Oh, crap!" Jubilee hissed.
"Could Ms. Grey
hear us? I mean, telepathically?"
The rest of the group was ready to bolt, but Charlotte shook her
head. "When she's, um, with Mr. Summers, her mind link's
one direction, and one direction only. Magneto could get in here and
she wouldn't sense it."
Andy stared at her, "How in God's name do you know that?"
"She told me."
"Man! I wanna be Ms. Grey's apprentice now!" Allen
"Shh! Forget it, Acid-glands, you'd incinerate the biology
"Shh!" Bobby hissed frantically as they reached the first
Summers/Grey bedroom. As they tiptoed by, Bobby's face suddenly
turned crafty, and he pressed his ear against the door. His eyes
widened, and Kitty yanked him bodily past it.
"Are you nuts?!" Rogue hissed. "What if they'd
Bobby grinned, "They wouldn't have, trust me. Man, I
didn't think he
had it in him!"
"Bobby!! You pervert!" Kitty squeaked, then paused
"Did he what?"
"Did he have it in him?" Kitty demanded.
"Oh, believe me, I've heard `em before, and he's
definitely got it in
him," Charlotte grinned back. "This is a quiet night compared
tumbles they've had!"
"Jeez, Char, I thought you said you didn't listen in!"

"They are to these ears! You should've heard `em on prom

"I think that qualifies as classified information!" Rogue
back, and then everyone had to cover their mouths to stop laughing.
"Shh! Come on, before he hears us, then we're all dead
"Please tell me his door isn't locked," Jubilee said,
fingers as Bobby tested the knob. He shook his head at them.
"Kitty? It's your show," Bobby ordered, motioning her
Kitty sauntered forward, flexed her arms several times (earning
another spate of giggling), then folded her hands in front of her and
mock-swan dove through the door. A moment later, the lock clicked
quietly, and the door creaked only slightly as she carefully opened
it. Kitty's head peeked around the door. "All clear, squad
