Title: Morals Versus Values
Series: Means to an End
Rating: R, for Logan�s language
Author�s Notes: Directly follows �Logic and Reasoning� Logan POV
Disclaimer: Not only do I owe the X-Men, but I also have a deed to Noah�s
Ark, the Bermuda Triangle and Skywalker Ranch.
Fuck Chuck and his stupid crusade. Dipshit almost got Marie killed. He
had the nerve to call me on his damn creepy brain-phone thing and ask me to
get her away from Eric�s merry little group. What a dumbass.
Now I ain�t a fan of Buckethead, damn near hate the fucker actually, but at
least he�d honest. He point-blank said what he was going to do. Least with
him, Marie won�t be surprised by anything, she knows what he�s like. Plus is
a guy like Sabertooth is loyal to him, there has to be a reason.
Hell Chuck thinks I�m going to go fight with him and his stupid
Fisher-Price superheroes. Hell no. When Cyke was ready to blast that
machine with Marie still in it, Chuck lost me. Heh, before that I was
thinking about joining up. Keepin� an eye on Marie and all. The only
reason I left her with the geeks was cause Chuck told me he had some
information about my past. But he would only give it to me if I agreed to
leave Marie there. Big fucking mistake that one. Shoulda just taken the kid
with me like I wanted too. Guess I�ll just do that now.
Marie leaving for Erik�s doesn�t surprise me, at all. She�s got a large
dose of him and me in her head, and neither of us really qualify as Mr.
Fuckin� Sunshine. And Marie has got a rebellious streak a mile wide. She
don�t take orders from nobody, not even a badass Canadian who orders her out
of his trailer. If Erik expects her to listen to everything he says, he�s
got another thing coming.
I ain�t saying she won�t fight for Erik. Just she�ll only do it when she
seems to think the means justifies the end. That�s all. Erik don�t like
that, he�ll loose one hell of a valuable asset. If she stays there, I might
as well be there too.
Chuck�s gotta grow up one of these days and realize that you bet more than
you can afford to loose. He could afford to loose Marie, and I have a big
fuckin� problem with that. When he lost her, he lost me too, there ain�t no
two ways a bout it, we�re a packaged deal.

" I see a girl of the night with a baby in her hand
Under an old streetlight next to a garbage can
Now she put her kid away and she's gonna get ahead
She hates her life and what she's done with it
That's one more kid that'll never go to school
Never get to fall in love, never get to be cool"
