( ) are Carrol's thoughts
** are Marie's thoughts
As the tension between Sabertooth and Wolverine mounted,
Marie felt the other woman in her head stir up.
( Hey Marie. How ya hanging in there?)
*I'd be a lot better if I wasn't on the shoulder of some
sicko that wants to rape me.*
( So, let's get you somewhere else then.)
*How, you don't happen to be a teleporter as well by any chance? *
( No, but I can show you how to stun Creed long enough to get
*Creed's the one that trained me. He'll know exactly what
I'm doing. *
(He ain't paying any attention to you. Now bunch your fists
up together, and hit him in the kidneys as hard as you can.)
Marie raised her arms and delivered a powerful blow to
Creed's lower back . His knees buckled and his grip on Marie
slipped. It was all Jean needed to telekinetically pull the girl
back towards the X-Men. Sabertooth pushed past Wolverine and lunged
after the X-trio. Logan quickly recovered and plunged his claws into
the bigger man's shoulder. "Not so fast bub."
Sabertooth howled in rage and pain. He turned to face his
opponent. "For that runt, I'm gonna rip up that little girly extra
good now. She ain't had a man before, so she'll be nice and tight."
A red haze of pure anger clouded Logan's mind and he charged
into Creed and slashed his stomach until the innards were exposed.
Creed returned the favor and dug his claws into Logan's left thigh.
He twisted the claws around and retracted his hand, with some meat
atached to it.
Logan growled in pain, and both mutants backed off to let
their healing factors click in. To Logan's disgust, Creed brought up
the hand that had recently been imbedded in his leg and sucked the
meat on his fingers into his mouth. Sabertooth chewed on it and
swallowed, a grin crossed his face. "Mmmm. Gives me a hankering for
something fresh and tender. After that little bitch is dead, maybe
I'll make a meal out of her. I've always wanted to eat something
that I've fucked. It's not like Eric would mind. It'd save him the
expense of buying a coffin for the little whore."
A blind furry built itself in Logan. Creed's brutal words
triggered something in Logan that he thought had died a long time
ago, the need to protect someone. Marie had brought those previously
dormant feelings to the surface, and Logan knew he'd do anything to
keep her safe. That included killing anyone who threatened her.
Creed seemed like a good person to start with.
The Wolverine's bezerker rage kicked in, and with a speed
that shouldn't belong to a man with a 300-lb. skeleton, Logan flew at
Creed. He kicked the backs of Creed's knees until he fell to the
ground. Yanking the man up by his hair, Logan snapped Creed's head
back and drove the three claws of his right hand through the neck.
He severed the head, and threw it as the body convulsed and collapsed
on the ground. Not satisfied with that Logan plunged his claws into
Creed's chest and ripped the still beating heart from the body. He
threw that in the same direction of the head, and turned to check on
Storm was battling Magneto. The weather goddess was flying
through the air and attempting to dodge metal bullets that the Eric
sent flying at her. He eventually hit her with one, and she fell to
the ground. As he went in for the killing blow, Marie stepped in
front of her.
"Get out of the way, Marie." Eric commanded.
"No." was her answer.
For the first time she was determined to fight for something she
felt right doing. Storm had been one of the few who had dared to
fight Magneto and had helped save her life. The least she could do
was return the favor.
"Stupid girl, you still don't understand. It's people like
them that keep mutants from rising in the world."
"And it's psychos like you who give mutants a bad name" she
spit back at her father.
As the two were arguing, Mystique slipped behind Marie and
pressed a razor sharp blade against her throat. "You've been a very
bad little girl Marie, and look, because of you poor Victor is
Scott Summers and Jean Grey advanced on the two villains and
their captive. Jean rushed to attend to Ororo's wound, while Scott
stepped forward to attempt to protect Marie. Mystique pressed the
knife against the girl's throat hard enough to draw a thin line of
" Let her go Mystique." Scott commanded.
"Oh look, it's Charles' boy scout trying to tell us what to
do with OUR child."
Logan approached the small standoff. His claws were out and
his Wolverine side was in complete control. "Get your fucking hands
off of her if you want to live."
" My dear boy, you've given us enough trouble. Marie, say
goodbye to your little boyfriend." Eric said and began to raise his
hand. Logan's body rose in the air and a sickening crunch was
Logan's howl of pain was enough motive for Marie. Not caring
if the blade at her throat cut her, she slammed her head against her
mother's face and broke her nose. Mystique's grip was released, and
Marie turned to deal with her father.
She gripped him around the throat and from shock his
concentration on Logan was broken, and the man fell to the ground in
an unconscious heap.
"I'm sorry," Marie whispered before she flexed her hand.
Mystique watched in horror, as her husband's neck was
broken. His blue eyes clouded over as his body crumpled, his neck
bent at an unnatural angle. She raised the knife and charged her
daughter. Marie turned just in time to see the red light of Cyclops'
optic bean strike her mother in the chest. It was the last thing she
saw before the darkness overwhelmed her.
