      Title: On a Birthday Party
      Author: Ally
      Email: roguegirl01@...
      Rated: PG (at most)
      Summary: Someone has a birthday. Plans are discussed
      and the aftermath is gushed over.
      Category: Not really. (some slight W/Rishness)
      Series: No, not at this time.
      Disclaimer: The characters aren�t mine, the idea is.
      Archive: WRFA, XMMFFA. Anyone else, ask.
      A/N: I thought that this would be a cute idea. I
      know of some other email stories, but not quite like
      this one. And I know that Nancy has something up her
      sleeve, but I promise, sweetie, it�s not a copycat of
      that! You�ll see. Thanks, Amelia, for the terrific
      beta. I�m glad you helped me clear some things up!

      Are you sure that you�ve got everything that we�ll
      need decorations-wise, babe? We�re gonna have to
      start first thing tomorrow with getting everything
      ready, ya know!

      For the fifteenth time, yes, I did get the
      decorations, Jubes! And you know that we teachers
      aren�t supposed to use these email accounts for
      gossiping during classes! What are your art students
      doing right now? Do you even know?

      *greatly sarcastic* Do you need a list of what I
      bought to make sure that I didn�t forget anything?

      I know exactly what my students are doing! They�re
      messing around with clay and pretending to make things
      that will actually look like real-life objects. See?
      Plus, you at least have a free period right now. You
      know, the advantage to being an art teacher is that I
      don�t have to grade tests on my free periods. Nope, I
      can have fun.

      And, yes, a list would be very helpful. I can start
      to think of where to put everything. *eg*

      Smart aleck. Ah, well. You�re right, I am just
      grading papers on my free period, but don�t you think
      that�s a little more important than going over party
      plans, which we could do later today? Plus that ding
      whenever I get a new email is really annoying. I
      think I�ll talk to Hank about changing the program a
      little so that there�s some other way of informing us
      that someone is annoying us again.

      So, here�s what I have:

      5 rolls silver crepe paper, 5 rolls black crepe paper
      4 �Happy Birthday� signs, silver lettering on black bg
      4 black tablecloths, 4 silver tablecloths
      10 silver and black �waterfall� hanging decorations �
      lots of that tinselly stuff on each one *sigh*
      8 silver table centerpieces, 8 black table
      centerpieces (one each per table)

      That�s what I have. Is it enough, m�lady?

      P.S. Make sure to be nice to Mandy today in seventh
      period. She got a C on this, and you know what she�s
      like about anything below an A. *rolls eyes*

      And I�ll remember to not yell at Mandy when her clay
      falls apart in two perfect pieces for the fiftieth
      time. I don�t know what I�m going to do about her art
      grade. I want to pass her, but art is the one subject
      she�s just not good at. Maybe I can have the Prof
      talk to her?

      I�m not sure. I�ll ask Kitty. She�s been organizing
      people for the set up. Or she was supposed to be
      doing that, anyway.

      The Prof might talk to her, but it�s your job to try
      and teach her something about art. Probably doesn�t
      matter what. *g*

      Kitty, do you know what time we�re setting up
      tomorrow? Jubes is having a major crisis over it.
      Who would�ve thought that she�d be the one to have
      nerves over something like this?!

      And did the invitations get out on time? I know you
      said that Bobby put �em in the mail, but for some
      reason I just want to make sure.

      Um, I assumed setting up was supposed to begin at 11
      because the dinner�s at six. That would give us seven
      hours. And, yeah, we got the invitations out. Note
      the use of �we�. Bobby was completely helpless in
      it, poor boy. Sometimes I wonder what I�m doing,
      getting involved with him!

      The kids are pouring in. Oh, joy. Do you ever wonder
      if they wonder what we�re emailing? I swear, ever
      since we got the new program in on all of the
      teachers� computers they�ve been giving me weird looks

      Thanks. I�ll let Jubes know the plans.

      I decided to email you while my students are reading
      the book I assigned them. You know, you�ve got my
      curiosity piqued. I wonder what they *are* assuming
      about us! It�d be kind of interesting to know, but I

      We meet in the ballroom at 11. The party is due to
      start at 6, you know! Kitty thinks that�ll give us
      plenty of time to get ready. And she said that she
      and Bobby made sure every invitation was sent.

      Now, do you have any other questions, O Worrier?

      Guess what? I�m terrorizing my students, I think.
      They�re all giving me these weird looks �cause I�m
      grinning as I type. I don�t know what they think I�m
      doing, but it�s probably not good! Don�t you wish you

      moment. You know, you�re right. The little devils
      keep looking over at me. And I think the ones in the

      Thanks for helping me get it all sorted out, chica.

      Just wanted to see how you were doing. Plus I�m
      freaking out the students. It�s fun. Did you know
      that they�re very interested in what we�re writing on
      these things during the day? In fact, I think they�ve
      been doing some heavy speculation about it.

      Are you ready for tomorrow? I know you don�t want to
      wear the suit, but I really appreciate that you�re
      going to anyway. Remember, it�ll only be for a few
      hours. Then you and I can go upstairs and find some
      creative ways to get rid of it for you.

      Love you,

      Don�t you think that rushing out of the party after
      three hours was a little noticeable, chica? Oh, well.
      It�s your life, and Logan�s. Anyway, what did you
      think of it all? I was so touched by the amount of
      students who volunteered to help set up, and then all
      of his friends who came.

      Do you think that the Professor was surprised? I
      mean, he�s telepathic and all, but he doesn�t pry too
      often. I know that he enjoyed himself. I haven�t
      seen him smile so much in one since I came to the
      Mansion! I think we made his sixty-fifth birthday a
      really night.

      And the food! Amelia outdid herself this time. We
      really need to do something nice for her in the very
      near future.

      I know I won�t be hearing from you until tomorrow.
      You and Logan are probably so wrapped up in each other
      right now that you won�t bother to check your mail
      until tomorrow morning.

      Well, good night and good sex, chica. *eg*

      Hey, girlie! I know you�re in the next room, but I�m
      ready to pass out and will do so as soon as I finish
      this email. I don�t think I could stay awake during a
      long gab session.

      How did you think the party went, anyway? I loved the
      Professor�s reaction. Even if he wasn�t really
      surprised, he acted like he was. I appreciated that,
      didn�t you? I mean, the guy could read any mind he
      wants and was probably aware of what was going on the
      entire time, but he acts so genuinely shocked and
      happy with what we set up.

      I�m glad we invited all of his old friends, too. I
      can�t tell you how many times during the night I heard
      the phrase, �I haven�t seen Charles in forever! I�m
      so glad I could make it tonight!�

      It�s really touching, how much he�s affected lives all
      around the world. Did you meet the woman who flew in
      from China? She told me how he rescued her in China
      when her village was stoning her because she has a
      healing touch but she couldn�t save a man too sick to
      live any longer. It was very sad. The Professor
      risked his own life to save hers, and they�ve been in
      contact ever since. And Jean thinks she was his first
      student. Ha!

      Well, my eyelids are drooping pretty bad. I�d better
      get some sleep. �Night, chica!

      I loved every minute of it. And I heard some pretty
      great stories from the Professor�s friends, too. It�s
      good to know that people like them are major parts of
      the network we X-Men depend on, isn�t it?

      I definitely agree that the Professor loved his party.
      He was smiling all night. Did you notice that? It
      was like he couldn�t stop himself. I�ve never seen
      him that happy.

      Could you believe it when Rogue and Logan left? Not
      that they were that noticeable, of course. I know
      they�d never have ruined the Professor�s night. But
      we all know that they didn�t leave at 9:30 because
      they wanted to get to sleep early! And you know, I
      think I can still hear them. Damn my room for being
      so close to theirs!

      Good night, Jubes. I�m starting to feel really tired
      myself.

      Yes, the Professor seemed really touched by the party,

      known about the extra guests, for example.

      And it was a good night, and good sex. See you at
