CHAPTER 4 â" ROGUEâS AGONY
Rogue felt like she was in a deep tunnel. She felt nothing but pain
both mental and physical. She felt like she was losing her mind. âHeâ
was in there again, stronger than ever before, even after the episode
in that damned machine at the statue. âHeâ crowded out everyone else,
including her precious 'Logan'. She was in so much agony that
the âLoganâ in her mind was the only thing keeping her from going
over the edge and letting go.
<Logan, please help me! It hurts so bad. I want to let go. I canât go
on, PLEASE> she cried in her mind to the âLoganâ there.
<Marie darling, Iâm here, please don't let go. I need you. I promised
I would take care of you and I will. I said I would come back and I
will. Please listen to me and hang on.>
âHeâ broke through <Sheâs mine! Iâve won! She will never be anyoneâ=
again and I will have my revenge on Xavier and humankind!> with
that âHeâ pushed everyone to the back of her mind including her
lifeline â" 'her' Logan. 'Rogue' fought hard to emerge forward, this
time she was finally successful, for the time being.
"NO, NO!" she screamed, waking and sitting up suddenly. She felt
dizzy from the forced absorption. She tried to concentrate, to try
and contact the professor, to let him know where she is. He knew that
if anyone survived the ambush and got back to the mansion that they
would be trying to locate her. But all was quiet, like she was being
shielded. The professor must be block also.
She felt something heavy around her neck. It was a metal collar of
some type. It was cold against her skin. She shuddered and brought
her knees to her chest. As she moved she noticed that her shoulder
was very sore, but was not bleeding any longer. She still wore her
torn X-men uniform and she noticed that she had bruises on the upper
half of her body, where she was brutally mauled. Rogue slowly opened
her eyes and looked around.
She was in a small dark room, there were no windows, only a small
light bulb in the center that lit the room dimly. The walls looked
like they were made of some type of metal sheeting and there was a
single door, also made out of metal. The room was sparsely furnished.
She was on cot on one side of the room. As she shook her head to
clear her mind, the last 24 hours (was it only that long ago?) came
rushing back â"
"Oh my god, my friends! No! Not Bobby" She remembered being trapped
by a large person as she came around a group of trees. He had grabbed
her by the throat. He must have been expecting her because he had
gloves on and there was not skin exposed. Then she saw the person of
her nightmares! Magneto had come out of the shadow of the trees. She
struggled with the giant and managed to free herself, she didn't know
how. She backed into a trunk of a tree. She then felt such a burning
sensation in her shoulder. She looked in horror as a metal spike flew
at her and impaled her to the tree. She screamed, she tried not to
because she knew that they wanted her to, but she couldnât help it.
She struggled to get off the tree, but it only made it worse. The
pain and the loss of blood made her nauseous and she felt like she
was going to pass out but she had to keep conscious.
Rogue kept thinking that she had to warn the team away. That is was a
trap! She knew that now. But what she didn't know, was that Magneto
did not want them. He wanted her. Xavier and the X-men had played
right into his hands. That would be Charles downfall. Thought Magneto.
The next thing she knew was that her friends and team members were
fighting to save her and themselves. She saw Storm get knocked out
after fighting with Mystique. Sabretooth injured Cyclops severely and
would have killed him if it not for Jean. Jean and Bobby were having
trouble keeping Sabretooth from getting to the injured Cyclops. She
tried to help, but the mutant giant held her firm then he pulled her
(Oh god it had hurt so bad!) from the tree after a signal from
Magneto. She had heard them call this giant 'Tremor'. He had played
with the spike in her shoulder, making her scream again. She had seen
the terror and pain in Jean's face. She had begged for their lives
but all they did was laugh. Then 'Tremor' did an unthinkable thing to
her. Rogue shivered and pulled more into a ball at the memory.
He had torn her uniform from her shoulders and had molested her right
in front of her friends! No man had ever touched her in that way. She
was never so afraid as she was now. She knew by his scent (she still
had some of Logan's heightened senses) that he was aroused and that
he would have done more to her if Magneto had not stopped him, for
now. She remembers seeing Bobby run towards them yelling her name,
trying to get to her. She looked on in horror as this beast/man
killed Bobby! There was so much blood. His last words as he looked at
her was "I'm Sorry." She had tried to crawl to him, to find any thing
to latch onto, but he was gone. <Oh God, it's all my fault and he was
saying he was sorry! He died trying to save me. It was so horrible.>
She felt horrified and dirty. If she got out of this, how could she
face anyone, especially Logan.
The 'Logan' in her mind emerged again <No darling, it's not your
fault. Don't do this to yourself, just survive. He will get what is
coming to him.>
Then there was a flash of some kind from Magneto and she saw Jean
collapse next to Scott. She didn't know if her friends were alive or
dead. If they were dead, she wanted to be with them but it was not to
The last thing she remembered was Magneto laughing and holding her
uncovered face in his hands. She had felt the connection begin and
then she felt something new - a pain, severe, excruciating mental
pain as if her mind and soul were being ripped from her body. She let
out a life-ending scream. Her last thought was "I'm dying, goodbye my
friends, goodbye Logan. My love". With that everything went black.
She woke here, in the dark, dank room. Not knowing what was going to
happen to her and being in so much pain, she bent her head to her
knees and cried. She cried not so much for herself, but for her
friends, for dear Bobby and for Logan. He would never know her true
feelings for him (she fingered the dog tags that were hidden under
what was left of her uniform). He would never know that she loved him
and she would have waited forever for him to return.
She also prayed that if any of her friends survived and the team put
together again, that they would not try a rescue attempt. Even if
they knew where she was. 'He' came forward again in her mind <"they
will never find you, I'll make sure of it. You're mine"> 'he' was
pushed back again by Rogue.
"Get the fuck out of my head you maniac!!!!!" she yelled to no one in
As she was deep inside her thoughts, the door being unlocked
interrupted her. She looked up to see Mystique walk through the door.
She had along with her Tremor (the beast/man). She was carrying a
tray of food and what looked like medical supplies. Mystique set them
down on the floor. Tremor stayed at the door just leering at her.
"Come here girl, I want to take a look at your shoulder." Mystique
said. "You don't have to worry about my friend here, he won't touch
you, for now anyway. He has his orders."
"My name is not 'girl', it's Rogue and you can go to hell!" Rogue
said with all the courage she could muster at the time, never taking
her eyes off of Tremor.
Mystique laughed and Tremor merely grunted. Mystique pushed a button
on a thing that she had in her hand. Rogue felt the most excruciating
pain she had ever know. Her whole body shook and convulsed as an
electrical shock went through her body. She let out a scream. She
couldn't help it. It just came out. Just as Rogue thought she was
going to pass out, the pain was gone. Rogue took a ragged breath and
looked up at Mystique with tears and rage in her eyes.
"You must really learn manners my dear. Magneto has plans for you and
disobedience will not be tolerated. Now come over here like I asked
you the first time, so that I can examine your shoulder. We wouldn't
want you to get sick and die on us before we can utilize your
talents." Mystique said.
Rogue slowly got up and stumbled over to Mystique. She looked at
Rogue's shoulder. Not that she needed to, it was already healing.
Rogue had still retained some of Logan's healing ability.
<Thank you again my love> thought Rogue.
<Glad to help darling. I need you to hang on, for me. If "I" know
about this, I will come for you.> the Logan in her head whispered to
Mystique gave a satisfied laugh. "You had better eat and rest
tonight. Your 'retraining' starts tomorrow and you will need all your
strength." With this said, Mystique pushed the button on the remote
again, but softly this time. Rogue was only slightly uncomfortable
but she got the warning loud and clear.
"You won't have to worry about Tremor for now. But if you don't
cooperate, he will get what is left of you sooner than when he was
promised, as payment for services rendered."
After Mystique had said that, Tremor looked directly at Rogue with
lust in his yellow eyes, he licked his lips and sneered. He said
something to Rogue that sent a shiver through her body --
"Soon filly, you will be mine and I will show you who the animal is,
me or your precious Wolverine. After I'm done with you no one will
want you again. Especially the Wolverine, if he's the same as I
remember him." He gave a dirty laugh.
Rogue looked directly at Mystique and Tremor and said in a very low
voice. "You don't know anything about him. I will kill myself before
I let that damn filthy animal touch me again or let you hurt my
friends. That I promise!"
"You won't have to worry about your friends worrying or looking for
you. By this time tomorrow they will already think you are dead."
Mystique said cryptically. With that said, Mystique gave a short
laugh. She walked to the door and motioned Tremor to come also. The
door closed again and was locked.
Rogue was alone again and very frightened. She was also very
Rogue looked at the meager meal and pushed it away. She knew that it
was probably drugged. She sat down with her thoughts again. The
Magneto in her mind was still trapped in the back of her mind, being
held there by 'Logan'. It was comforting. But she also knew that it
wouldn't last long.
Rogue thought to herself <I'm sorry sugar, but I will not let them
use me for their pleasure or to hurt others, especially my friends. I
will kill myself first.>
<I will always love you Logan, no matter what happens or where I am.
I'm so sorry. Please forgive me.>.
'Logan' tried to emerge to stop this area of thought but 'Rogue'
pushed him back and kept him there with the others, it took a lot of
With that final thought in her mind, she slipped into a fitful sleep.
Sadly knowing what she had to do come tomorrow ---
Either she found a way to escape or she knew what she would have to
