      DISCLAIMERS REPOSTED IN PART 0

      * * *

      Forget light — gossip has the fastest speed of travel in the known
      universe. Marie could therefore have been expected to rapidly hear of the
      mysteriously sideburned assailant who had wiped the floor with five of
      the "best-trained" students.

      In this instance, gossip was slightly delayed by the recovery time
      required for the witnesses. Not by much, though, because Marc had taken
      so little damage and Angelica was out of the infirmary right behind him.
      By the time Logan stalked out of Frost’s office, the pair had tracked
      down a couple of mutant classmates studying in the library and hauled
      them out to a more conversation-friendly locale. Sharon and Haroun found
      them all clustered in a rec room and were able to add some intriguing
      additional information. Sharon, aka Catseye, had the enhanced senses that
      seemed to come with so many animalistic mutations, and she had overheard
      Ms. Frost’s administrative assistant, Camilla, complaining about the
      "brute who thought he could bluff his way past me by claiming to be from
      ‘Xavier’s School for the Gifted’!"

      This raised more questions, such as: Was he really from Xavier’s? And if
      not, how had he known the name of the Massachusetts Academy’s competitor?
      And whether he was from Xavier’s or not, why had he come *here*?

      The idea immediately presented itself, to seek out the recent Xavier
      student and see how many of their questions she might be able to at least
      shed light on, if not answer completely.

      As it happened, they weren’t the only ones looking for Marie. Catseye’s
      nose was as sensitive as her ears — but Logan’s was more so, and not only
      did he have more years’ experience at tracking prey, but he left the
      administrative building and started looking for Marie first.

      So when the mixed group of mutants headed for the cafeteria to catch
      Rogue at dinner, they arrived in the quad just in time to see...
