FAN FIC: CRY FOR MERCY CH4
- disclaimers and such are in ch2
Now that he was fully dressed Scott escorted Sabretooth down to the
kitchen. There were two ways to get there from the bedroom. The short
way was through the main hallway of the mansion. That would take them
right past the dayroom, and the library, the two most occupied areas
of the x mansion at this time on a Saturday afternoon, or the long
way around, through the classroom area of the building, which was
normally empty on Saturdays. As far as Scott was concerned, this was
a no brainer.
"So why the hell did Chuck turn his house into a school?" Sabretooth
curiously asked as they passed the open classrooms. He was walking
along side Scott who was struggling to keep pace with the 7' giant's
"It's a long story that the Professor is much better at telling than
I am." Scott was trying not to sound too annoyed with Sabre for
repeatedly referring to Charles Xavier as `Chuck'.
Sabretooth didn't seem interested in carrying on a conversation with
Scott at this point in time. He was too busy sniffing the air,
picking up all kinds of delicate odors. When he was this hungry, and
by this time he was starving, he instinctively began to sniff out
He detected another human in the area; a female. She was in the room
just up ahead, where he was also picking up the odors of glue, clay,
paint, and *sniff* cookies! In eight giant steps Sabretooth was at
the door to the art room, and walking inside leaving Scott far
Instantly he spotted the bag of `chips a-hoy' cookies which were on a
counter on the far side of the room. Standing on top of the counter
next to the bag was a woman he did not recognize, her back was to him
and she was loudly playing some CD with some girl singing, `You
better get this party started'. She appeared to be painting something
on the wall just below the ceiling's crown-molding.
Cautiously, he approached Mercy from behind, not knowing what powers
if any she possessed. He was almost in reaching distance of the
cookies, when Scott came from behind. "C'mon." Scott spoke
firmly. "You're not supposed to be in here." Sabretooth whirled
around to face Scott and angrily roared. The ferocious sound sent
chills down Mercy's spine and she quickly turned to see Scott in a
stand off with probably the most fearsome mutant she had even seen.
"I just want some damn cookies!" Sabretooth angrily shouted. Mercy
had a side view of the two men who were completely ignoring her. She
was looking especially hard at the tall brawny blonde haired
stranger. `He's beautiful!' She thought to herself. `Scary as hell,
"Oh, you can help yourself, I don't mind." She interrupted the men
with a flirtatious smile. "It's not like I can't go to the store and
by some more."
Sabretooth didn't waste any time grabbing the bag and stuffing his
large hand inside, only to find the cookies were sealed inside a
plastic sleeve. He dropped the bag, and with both of his enormous
hands tore the sleeve open with great force.
Chocolate-chip cookies flew in every direction. Only about half were
still left in the sleeve. He quickly began stuffing cookies in his
Mercy looked over to Scott. "Is this one of our `guests' you
mentioned earlier?" Scott nodded his head. "Mercy, this is
Sabretooth." Scott reluctantly introduced them to one
another. "Sabretooth Mercy."
Mercy was looking down at Sabretooth who did little more than nod his
head as a sign of acknowledgement to her.
Like a queen commanding her knight she held her hand out in his
direction. "Sabretooth, help me down."
Maybe it was because he knew just how nervous this would make Scott,
Sabretooth obeyed her order.
With the bag of cookies still in his hand he grabbed Mercy around her
hips and lifted her off the counter. He held her there above him,
holding her body close. Mercy braced her hands on his shoulders. She
had managed to place her fingers through some of his long hair.
Neither said a word to each other as they just stared into each
As far as Scott could tell it looked like Sabretooth had no intention
of putting her down any time soon. What really surprised Scott was
Mercy didn't seem to mind her predicament one bit. `Oh, shit.' He
thought to himself. `How am I going to pull these two apart.'
"Sabretooth " Scott kept his voice low and calm. "Put the art teacher
Like a couple of children being ordered out of the pool, both Mercy
and Sabretooth give Scott a disappointed look. He put her down by
letting her body slide slowly down his. She gave the felinoid a
sultry smile as she slowly stepped away from him though Scott was
sure she would have been happy to stay in villain's arms.
Sabretooth took another cookie and chomped on it slowly. He began to
examine Mercy more closely. She was about 5' 8" and about
180lbs; `Not bad to look at. Kinda meaty, but that's OK; just
makes `em bounce better.' He remarked to himself.
She had long shapely legs and large breasts. `Hmmm Wonder how good
she fucks.' He then began to examine her other details. She had
golden brown eyes, and wire framed glasses. She had long, deep
burgundy colored hair that hung past her shoulders. The ends of hair
curled into carefree locks. Her bangs were almost touching her
eyelashes, and she had her fore-locks pulled back into a pony-tail
with a bright purple bow made from a scarf. The bright purple
material of her top and pants could be seen through the white
artist's smock she wore over them.
He didn't notice any perfume, just some ordinary deodorant, and soap.
But this did make detecting her own natural scent easier and he found
it to be what he liked most about her.
Her scent reminded him of apples, and honeysuckle, but most of all,
her scent reminded him of fresh sweet milk.
Realizing she had caught Sabretooth's fascination, Mercy smiled once
more at the giant mutant.
"I bet you would love to have some milk to go with those cookies,
"Wow!" Sabretooth quipped sarcastically. "You must be a telepath if
you figured that out without any help."
Mercy gasped in disbelief, and then mischievously added. "If I were a
telepath I wouldn't waste time reading your mind; I gave up
children's literature years ago." Sabretooth growled softly knowing
he had been insulted but not quite sure just how.
Scott just stood back and chuckled to himself. He was glad that
Sabretooth was getting to see Mercy being herself.
Now was as good of a time as any to get Sabretooth out the door. "If
you want something else besides those cookies we'll have to go."
Sabretooth nodded his head and the two men started to leave.
"It was a pleasure to meet you Sabretooth." Mercy added as the men
were walking away.
The felinoid turned around and for a long hard moment just stared at
her. "Ditto." Was all he offered in a cold emotionless manner.
Just as they left the room, Mercy sighed and whispered under her
breath, "Now that's one sexy son-of-a-bitch."
What she didn't know was Sabretooth was able to hear her every word.
