Back at the mansion Logan was having a covnersation with the

rode off, not knowing where he was headed and not caring. Nothing
to him now that she was gone.
A few days went by and he found himself near Alkali Lake. He walked
water's edge. He pushed his hands in his pockets and looked out over
water. He stood there in silence for hours, mourning the loss of
Jean in his
own way. He finally looked down the the ground. "Goodbye, Jean," he
a tear made its way down his cheek. He walked to his campsite and
Jean saw smoke and wandered in that direction. Logan heard a

"Logan!" she said hugging him.
"Jean? Jean, oh my God, we thought you were dead! How did you
water rushed right over you!" he said pulling back to look at her
crushing her body to his again.
"Logan, I know you have a lot of questions, but honestly, I can't
anything after seeing the jet go up," she said replied.
"We missed you...I missed you," he said quietly, holding her as if
afraid to let go.
"It's ok; I'm ok," she said. "Why did you leave the institute?" she
pulling back enough to look in his eyes.
"Too many reminders of you...it was making me insane," he said a

He wanted to kiss her, but remembered how she had stopped him before
of Scott. She smiled and gently kissed him. "You just read my mind,
you?" he asked smiling.
"I sensed you needed that," she replied smiling. "Come on, take me

"This way," he said taking her hand and leading her in the direction
They walked back to the campsite hand in hand in silence. "You must

handed them to Jean. "They may be a little big, but they've got to

looked her over in her tattered leather suit.
"Thanks," she said going into the tent. She emerged later looking
comfortable and warmer.
"Can I ask you something?" he asked as she sat beside him near the
"As long as I can reserve the right not to answer," she replied.
"Why wouldn't you let us save you? Nightcrawler could've gotten you
back in the jet once you'd gotten it up..." he said turning to her.
"I couldn't let you die when I knew I could save you. I didn't want
be more casulaties than there had to be. Maybe I just wanted my life
something..." she said turning away.
"Hey, you mean a lot to everyone at the institute...you mean a hell

to me," he said turning her back to face him. "We've been through
past few weeks without you...I've been through hell...so has
"Scott...how has he been taking this?" she asked concerned.
"We all took it pretty hard...but Scott has been more obvious. He's
much secluded himself from the rest of us...snapping at anyone who

"That makes me feel even worse...especially with what I've been
lately," she replied.
"What's that?" he asked taking her hand, coaxing her to continue.
"I'm not in love with Scott anymore...I love him; I'll always love
I'm not in love with him...I haven't been for a long time," she said
at their hands.
"THen why stay with him?"
"Out of habit maybe...maybe because he's safe...I don't really know

"So you stay with a man you don't love? You're hurting both of you
way than you would by just ending it," he said.
"Oh I see what you're trying to do...you think that if I break up
Scott, then I'll come to you..." she said smiling.
"I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought about it, but I want you to
happy...if you're happy with him, then be with him; if you aren't

"I wish it were that easy..." she sighed. "I hate hurting him...but
right; this is hurting us both more."
"It'll be ok," he said. "Come here," he said opening his arms to
She sat there and let him hold her, comforting both of them. "It's
should get some sleep," she said softly.
"You go ahead; I'll sleep out here," he said looking at the fire.
"No," she said simply.
"What do you mean 'no'? In case you haven't noticed, there isn't
lot of room in there..."
"Can we not fight about this? I'm not kicking you out of your tent

my telepathy..." she said crossing her arms.
"Fine," he said getting up and going in the tent. She followed and
beside him, resting her head on his chest. "What about that little
had about you only flirting with the dangerous guy?" he asked.
"You're not so dangerous after all," she teased.
"See, I told you I wasn't all that bad," he smiled.
"Shut up," she said playfully smacking his chest.
He grabbed her hand. "Hey," he said.
"I can do more than that, and you know it," she sat up a little

to do this here?" he asked, breathing hard.
"You're right; I haven't even broken up with Scott yet," she said
to her spot beside him. "Thank you," she said, realizing how much he
care for her.
"I don't want you to regret anything. If I ever get to make love to
want it to be right. I don't want either of us to regret it for
