*Note I'm doing this story from both characters POV's so it might get a
little confusing. Whenever it is Rogue's POV she always refers to herself as
Rogue. When it is Scott's he refers to her as Marie. Got it. Hope that helped
After the previous day's gravity they both needed to unwind. And since
they were in Florida what better way to do that then a day at the beach.
Scott found a little out of the way spot where they had the beach all to
themselves. Getting out of the car they both looked around until they found a
place to set up the little picnic they had brought with them.
The day was unseasonably warm, making it a perfect day for a picnic.
Scott shook out the blanket he had found in the trunk of the Lexus and Rogue
helped him to smooth it into place. Going back to the car Scott grabbed the
bag of goodies they had brought with them.
Digging into the bag, Rogue set about making their lunch as Scott stared
out at the ocean. Rogue watched him wondering if he was still thinking about
what he had told her yesterday. She'd told him she still loved him and that
what he had told her didn't change that, but something told her he wasn't
He was like a puppy that had been kicked one too many times by its
master; afraid to accept kindness for fear that pain would follow. A profound
sadness enveloped her heart as she thought of what he had divulged to her. So
much pain and suffering for one man to bear. How he had survived through that
was a mystery to her.
She shook herself to get rid of her unhappy thoughts and went back to
fixing their meal. She smiled as she slathered some peanut butter on a
sandwich for Scott. It amazed her that such a simple thing could bring him
such comfort. She'd have to remember to make sure there was always a jar in
the kitchen cupboard at the Mansion.
Finishing up with lunch she handed Scott his sandwiches and a container
of fruit salad. Settling down beside him she started to eat her salad. She
followed Scott's gaze and found him watching as seagulls dove down into the
water to catch their own meal. It was quite relaxing actually and she soon
found herself dozing off.
When she woke up, she found herself alone. Looking around she spotted
Scott at the water's edge, tossing stones from the beach into the frothy
waves. Sitting up she pulled her knees under her chin, wrapped her arms
around them, and watched him. He leaned over and picked up another stone and
Rogue admired the way his jeans molded to his ass.
Scott drew back his arm and let fly the stone he had just picked up, the
movement caused the muscles in his shoulders to bunch up and she could feel
her pulse speed up as desire took hold of her. Sweat popped out on her brow
as her core temperature rose. Too bad, she couldn't act on her desire, she
thought in frustration.
He was a fine specimen of a man, tall and leanly muscular with broad
shoulders and slim hips. It was odd really; she had always, in the past, been
attracted to larger more muscular men like Logan. Well, maybe it wasn't all
that odd. After all, it hadn't been his body she had been attracted to after
all; it had been his caring and understanding nature.
She continued watching him and noticed that he had taken off the shirt he
had been wearing earlier. Now he wore just his white undershirt and his
jeans, which he had rolled up his calves to prevent them from getting wet.
The waves lapped at his feet and suddenly she got an idea.
Getting up she walked down to where he stood and wrapped her arms around
his waist. He jumped a little in surprise before laying his own arms over
hers. "What ya doing sugah?" She asked.
"Just waiting for you to wake up." His tone held just the slightest edge
of teasing; giving her hope that she could break him out of his dark mood.
"Sorry about that. Ah didn't mean ta conk out on ya like that." She lay
her cheek against his shoulder blade, feeling the warmth of his skin through
the thin barrier of fabric that was all that stood between his flesh and her
"No big deal. It gave me a chance to watch you sleep. Did you know you
snore?" He was definitely teasing her now.
Drawing back from him, she punched his shoulder. "Ah do not ya liar. Take
"And if I don't?" He asked turning around.
No sooner had he turned all the way around than he found her hands
planted against his chest giving him a firm shove. Taken off guard, he flew
backwards into the water. He came up sputtering only to be pushed back under
by the next wave.
Rogue stood on the beach doubled over in laughter. Her laughter was
abruptly cut off when a pair of wet arms wrapped around her waist and lifted
her up and over an equally wet shoulder. "Scott." She squawked. "Now wait a
minute sugah, can't ya take a joke? Come on now, don't ya dare throw me in."
She could feel his shoulders shaking as he laughed. "SCOTT!!" She screamed as
he lifted her off his shoulder and then tossed her into an incoming wave.
She went under and swallowed what felt like half the ocean. Surfacing she
coughed and sputtered. Slitting her eyes she glared in mock anger at Scott,
who was laughing so hard he had fallen to the ground. She tossed her sodden
hair back and stalked toward him. Stopping before him she swung her foot back
and then forward splashing him with chilly salt water.
"Hey now, I was just paying you back. If you do that again I'll have to
retaliate." He warned.
Grinning she pulled her leg back again and was about to swing it forward,
but didn't get the chance as Scott lunged forward tackling her back into the
water. They both went under and came up gasping for air. "Why you rat!" Rogue
cried out slapping her hand into the water in front of him. Scott put his
arms in the water behind him and then swung them forward causing a large wave
of water to crash into her.
"Okay this is war." She declared.
The next ten minutes were spent splashing, dunking, and half drowning
each other. They both stopped when a big wave slammed into them and washed
them back onto the beach. Scott grabbed her arm to keep her from being
dragged back out as the wave pulled back. It wasn't until Rogue felt his
callused thumb stroking circles against the inside of her elbow that she
noticed he was touching bare skin.
Rogue was frozen in place with horror unable to pull away. She waited in
dread for the pull to start, but it never did. "Marie what's wrong?" Scott
"Scott yah touching me." She said in awe.
"So I always touch you." He said not understanding what she meant.
"No, Scott. What Ah mean is yah touching my bare skin." She motioned to
his hand, which still held her bare arm.
Scott looked at his hand and went completely still. Marie's shirtsleeve
had rode up on her arm and the water had plastered it above her elbow. This
meant that he had been holding onto her bare arm for about two minutes and
nothing had happened. Looking back up at her face, he saw the same surprised
pleasure he felt reflected in her expression.
"Marie.." He was cut off as she threw herself into his arms and kissed
him. He let go of her arm and wrapped his arms around her middle. Her lips
were just as soft and sweet as he had known they would be. Opening his mouth,
he snaked out his tongue and slid it over her lower lip. She gasped and
opened up for him. Sliding his tongue inside her mouth, he explored her
Getting impatient Rogue slid her tongue out to duel with his. The kiss
grew more passionate. Teeth clashed as they each feed from the other's mouth.
Hands roamed freely over bodies that craved sensation. Falling to their knees
they lay down on the wet sand.
The waves splashed up against their overheated bodies causing each to
gasp and shiver. Rolling over, Scott held Marie to his chest as they
continued to explore each other. Marie pulled away and sat up, straddling
Scott's hips; she reached down, yanked her shirt over her head, and threw it
up on the beach away from the water.
Scott raised his hands and touched her through the thin wet material of
her bra. Her nipples, already peaked from the cold, seemed to tighten even
more as he settled his hands over them. Sitting up, Scott lowered his head,
took one of the little buds into his warm mouth, and suckled her gently
through the silk bra.
Reaching behind her, she unhooked it and Scott pulled back long enough
for her to take it off. She threw it up in the general direction of her shirt
and Scott went back to worshiping her breasts. Taking off her gloves, she
tossed them away also and slid her fingers into Scott's thick wealth of hair.
The waves beat at them until even their passion heated bodies started to
grow cold. Scott drew away and lifted Marie off his lap. Rising up he swung
her into his arms and carried her to the blanket they had laid out earlier
for their picnic. Setting her down on her feet, he helped her peel off her
wet jeans. When she stood before him in nothing but her panties he could only
stare at her beauty.
"Marie you are so beautiful." Grasping her hips, he pulled her forward
and buried his face against her stomach. She raked her hands through his hair
and pulled his face away from her body. He looked up at her and saw tears
running down her cheeks. "Hey. What are the tears for?"
"Oh Scott. Ah'm just so glad Ah can touch someone again. It's been so
long." Scott drew her down until she was kneeling before him and then kissed
her with all the love and tenderness he felt inside. Tenderness soon turned
to passion once more as the both of them continued to explore each other's
Pulling away from Scott's lips Rogue yanked at his undershirt
impatiently. "Ya have too many clothes on sugah."
Scott remedied that by standing up and pulling the shirt off. Reaching
down he worked the buttons of his jeans through the stubborn wet material.
Once he had the buttons undone, he worked the waterlogged pants down his
legs, kicking them off his feet. His underwear had been shed along with the
jeans so he stood before Rogue in nothing but a smile.
Rogue looked him up and down and swallowed convulsively. She'd never
actually seen a naked man before. Sure she'd seen plenty of pictures, with a
roommate like Jubes you saw a lot of pictures of naked men. But never up
close and in the flesh. And speaking of flesh, whoa boy, Scott's erection
stood at attention like a good soldier.
She forced her eyes away from his aroused flesh and back up to his face.
He fell to his knees before her and pressed her back to the blanket. Leaning
over her, he continued the attention he had been giving her breasts earlier.
Rogue squirmed as sensations she had never felt before ricocheted through her
Working his way down Scott swirled his tongue into her navel and down
around her hip. When he reached the apex of her thighs, he gently pulled them
apart. Looking down he saw the glistening wetness that awaited his aching
arousal. Leaning down he flicked his tongue over the little bud hidden at the
top of her slit. Marie bucked underneath him and grabbed his head in her
There was a moment of pain as her fingers pulled the hair around his
stitches, but then he was beyond caring as her scent drove him crazy. He dove
down, caught her nubbin with his lips, and suckled it. Marie moaned and
shifted her hips beneath him. He added to the exquisite torture by slipping a
finger inside her tight slick passage. Moving his finger in and out, he
looked up at her and through the red haze of his glasses; he could see her
eyes roll back as she approached her climax.
Adding a second finger Scott increased his tempo until Marie stiffened
beneath him and cried out as her body succumbed to her release. Moving back
up her body, he kissed her and then nibbled his way down her jaw until he was
once again suckling at her breasts. He waited patiently as Marie recovered
from her orgasm and when she started to move restlessly below him once more,
he rolled to the side taking her with him and raised her leg over his hip.
Feeling his erection nudge her wet heat, he froze as a thought occurred
to him. "Shit!" He exclaimed burying his face in her hair.
"What is it?" She asked running her hands over his shoulders.
Scott laughed mirthlessly. "I didn't exactly pack with this kinda thing
"Wha..." She trailed off as understanding hit her. "Oh, ya mean ya don't
have a condom?"
"Exactly." He pulled away from her and lay on his back trying to control
"Scott," Rogue leaned over him and smiled. "ya don't have ta worry about
protection. Ah'm on the pill."
Scott looked at her for a moment. "Are you sure this is what you want?"
"Yes." She sighed as she kissed him.
Rolling back to his side he repositioned her leg over his hip and guided
himself to her entrance. "I'll try and be gentle, but it's going to hurt a
little." She nodded and he thrust forward quickly.
Rogue felt a pinch as Scott took her innocence and then only a pleasant
fullness. Rocking her hips forward, she heard Scott gasp. "Lay still for a
minute." He pleaded. But she couldn't, the feeling of him seated so deeply
inside her and stretching muscles she'd previously never thought about was
too much. She rocked her hips again and Scott grabbed them. She could hear
his teeth grind. "This won't last long if you continue to do that."
She grinned impishly at him. "Who says I want it to last long? If it
lasts too long you might give me a heart attack sugah."
Scott chuckled and pulled her knee up deepening the angle of his entry.
"Okay, but just remember you asked for it this way." That said, he started
plunging in and out of her with such swiftness that the friction created by
it drove her over the edge almost immediately.
Feeling his own release approaching Scott slid his hand between them and
pressed against her pleasure point. Her arms locked around his neck and
nearly chocked him as she came for the third time. Her inner muscles
contracted around him and he was a goner. His climax was so violent he bucked
against her and threw his head, back neck straining, as every muscle in his
Both of them lay panting, arms around one another, trying to control
their raging heartbeats. Scott looked deeply into her eyes and saw everything
he could ever want to know. Bowing his head, he kissed her tenderly. She
returned the kiss and the dance began again.
Unfortunately, while they had been otherwise occupied a storm had rolled
in. Thunder shook the ground as Scott rolled on top of Marie intent upon a
repeat performance. Chilling drops of rain fell in torrents upon them as the
heavens opened up above them.
Rogue giggled as Scott groaned his frustration. "Looks as if we need to fi
nd a hotel, sugah."
Scott agreed and they hurriedly grabbed their clothes and picnic and ran
for the car. No sooner had they reached the car than lightening cut across
the sky and thunder boomed again. They both dressed in their chilly, wet
clothes and waited for the car to heat up.
Scott put the car in gear and pulled back out onto the road. Rogue
shivered as the heat from the cars vents hit her. She felt queasy all of the
sudden. She rocked back and forth, as the queasiness intensified. Scott drove
on, oblivious to her discomfort. What was wrong with her she wondered? Bile
rose in her throat and she swallowed it back down. It didn't help though and
soon it rose up again.
"Scott, pull over." She croaked.
Looking over at her Scott saw how pale she had become. He hurriedly
pulled to the side of the road and Rogue shoved the door open and fell to the
ground heaving. She was violently ill. Scott ran around to her side of the
car and held her hair back as she continued to vomit. Rubbing his hand over
her back in soothing circles, he asked if she was all right. Nodding weakly,
she allowed him to lift her up and redeposit her in her seat.
Hurrying back to the driver's side Scott got in and opened up the jockey
box, retrieving the cell phone he dialed up the Mansion's number. When Ro
answered, he told her to come and pick them up, giving her their location.
No more than twenty minutes later and two more rounds of dry heaves, the
Blackbird touched down near them. Getting out of the car, he went around to
Marie's side and lifted her into his arms. Striding towards the Blackbird, he
was met by Remy and Jubilee halfway. "What are you two doing here?" He asked.
"We gonna be driving da car back, Mon aime." Remy replied with a grin
that made Scott worry just a bit about the Lexus. "Just be careful you two. I
don't want to get a call saying you got in a wreck."
"Scooter man, chill. We'll be good. Promise." The two youngsters ran to
the car and Scott hurried into the Blackbird.
Inside he found Hank waiting for him. "What seems to be the problem?" He
"I don't know, she just started getting sick all of the sudden." Scott
said as he laid Marie down on an examination table. The Blackbird lurched
then as Ro took off and both men grabbed for the wall to steady themselves.
"Well what were you doing right before she got sick?" Hank asked.
Scott blushed as he thought of exactly what they had been doing. Then his
eyes widened in horror as a thought occurred to him. "Hank could I have made
Hank frowned at him. "I do not understand the question."
"What I mean is we uhm...discovered that we could touch. You know without
her absorbing anything." Scott blushed again.
Hank stared at him a moment before his face split in a huge grin. "Why
that's marvelous my friend. How did you come upon this discovery?"
"Well we were playing around in the ocean, I grabbed her arm, and then we
realized that I was touching bare skin But nothing happened and we
uh...sorta..that is to say we..." He trailed off as Hank raised his hand.
"I quite understand Scott. The two of you became intimate. Is that what
you were trying to say?" The Blackbird lurched and Hank looked around Scott
to see Ro staring back at them, mouth open in shock. Hank motioned for her to
pay attention to what she was doing. Looking back at Scott, Hank was
surprised his friend hadn't passed out by now with the amount of blood now
suffusing his cheeks.
"I will have to look into this discovery further before I know if it is
why Rogue is sick." Turning to his patient, Hank began to run some
preliminary tests. Scott hovered around him and Hank had to ask him to go sit
down. Before they had even reached the Mansion Hank had a good idea of what
After they touched down and Scott had brought Rogue into the med lab, he
confirmed his suspicions. Turning to Scott, he smiled. "She will be all
right. She is suffering from dehydration from ingesting too much salt water.
I gave her a diuretic and she should be okay by the morning." Scott sighed in
relief and hugged Hank.
"Thank God." Scott said as he picked up Marie's hand and placed a kiss in
"I have also found out why it is that she can touch you." Scott whirled
around at that.
"Well after running some extensive tests I have found that she has a high
level of radiation in her system." Scott looked as if he might ask a question
so Hank raised his hand to forestall him. "Normally I would be worried about
what effect the radiation is having on her. However, it does not seem to be
having any effect. Her mutation is treating the radiation as if it is just
another energy source. And since she got the radiation from you, it is just
another energy source." Pausing he made sure Scott was following him.
"Your mutation is powered by the sun's ultra violet radiation. Therefore,
when Rogue touched you her mutation soaked up the radiation, which fuels your
mutation. It is actually quite interesting. This means that any mutant with a
power fueled by an outside source is immune to Rogue's touch. But seeing as
you are the only mutant in my acquaintance with such a power, than I do not
see it as a hindrance to her performance on the team." Hank grinned at
Scott's dumbfounded expression. "I think, Scott, that you should take off
Scott frowned at the sudden change of topic. "Hank, you know I can't do
"It is my opinion that after prolonged contact with Rogue that she might
have soaked up enough radiation that your power levels are to low too be of
any danger. In other words, your optic blasts will most likely be useless
after you and Rogue make love."
"But that's impossible." Scott said touching his glasses. But what if it
were true. Scott rubbed his temples; the ache that had been his constant
companion over the last ten years was gone. "I'll be right back." He said as
he rushed out of the room. Going outside he stood facing away from the
Mansion. Reaching up he closed his eyes and took his glasses off. Slowly he
opened his eyes and was greeted by color. All the colors swamped his vision
and he had to close his eyes for a moment.
It wasn't possible. It had to be a dream. Opening his eyes again he
focused on a tree off in the distance and saw the orange, yellow and red of
the autumn leaves. Turning back around he ran back to the med lab. Throwing
open the door his eyes collided with Marie's. She gasped in wonder as she
slid from the examination table.
Moving toward him, she raised her hand and touched his face. "My God,
Scott. Ya have the most beautiful blue eyes Ah've ever seen." Scott drunk in
all the colors that made up the woman he loved. He never wanted to forget how
brown her eyes were or how the light turned her hair to darkest gold.
Hank cleared his throat behind the two lovers and they both turned to
him. "There are some things I think the both of you might want to take into
consideration. Like the fact that Scott will not be able to use his powers
after prolonged intimate contact. Moreover, once his reserves are completely
diminished than your power Rogue will treat his skin like that of a human.
Meaning that you will both have to be careful. If I were you, I would not
tempt fate by touching skin to skin all the time. And Scott I think it might
be a good idea for you to spend as much time in the sun as you can. We
wouldn't want to be left without our leader if a mission ever came up and you
were unable to use your power. Other than that I am very happy for the both
of you." Turning he left the med lab and two very shell-shocked people
"Scott.." Marie began, only to have Scott cut her off with a kiss.
"Let's not worry about it right now okay." He said.
"All right, but Ah think maybe we should wait until yah've been in the
sun awhile tomorrow before we try to make love again."
"I agree, but we could still share the same bed tonight. I mean if that's
all right with you."
"Of course it's all right with me. But aren't ya worried about what the
others will say?" She asked.
"It doesn't bother me. We're not doing anything wrong." He said kissing
"Well then it okay by me." Smiling they linked hands and went to Scott's
room. When they reached it, they found that Jean had thankfully moved all of
her things out. After they had both taken a shower to warm their chilled
bodies they got dressed for bed and slipped under the covers. They fell into
an exhausted sleep in each other's arms.
Okay that's it for this series, but some time in the not so distant
future I will be going back to this story in another series. I am doing this
because I want to explore some of the relationships I started during the
Intermissions and also further explore Rogue and Scott's relationship. So
stay tuned for that. <G>
