A/N: Thanks to Redd for the beta, and for the series
name. This one has been a long time in the works, but
only because real life has a tendency to want
Watching him leave that morning, I knew he wasn�t
coming back. And with everything that had happened
since his return, I really couldn�t blame him. The
past couple of weeks had been hard on everyone, and
the Wolverine only had one way of dealing with his
The day that Jean died was hard. Hard is an
understatement. It was absolutely terrible. Scott
would later tell me that he felt like he had no one to
turn to; and Logan didn�t feel like he had the right
to mourn for her. So they turned to each other, for a
few minutes at least. But when that was over, Scott
headed to his room, and Logan headed to mine. We had
never talked about us. No one ever really expected it
to happen, besides Jean. And since she was gone, Logan
felt like he had to do something about it, to live up
to her memory if nothing else. So that�s how it
started: Logan wanting to feel like he was doing right
by Jean, and me needing someone to turn to since Bobby
was lost in his own world, mourning for Jean and John.
But how to get around the skin problem? That was
simple enough actually. Scarves and body suits are
very useful things when it comes right down to it. And
the sex didn�t start right away, like everyone would
like to think. In fact, I�ve only had sex with Logan
all of three times, three fabulous times, but three
times none the less.
But when you wake up and hear a warning in the voice
of the man you love, you start to understand, that no
matter what, sometimes things just don�t work out. And
when your friends can all tell that something is wrong
between you and the man you�ve been pining for, for
two years, you start to realize that it�s not going to
last. But then, nothing lasts forever.
And the night he comes home still drunk, and for a
super healer that�s kinda hard, and smelling of
someone else, who must look like Jean, cause of the
red hair all over his jacket and shirt, and the same
color lipstick that she wore on his neck, you know
it�s not going to last. Nothing lasts. You can�t
expect it to either.
So waking up to see him walking out the door wasn�t a
big surprise. And knowing that he wasn�t coming back
with out him saying a thing, also not a big surprise.
Did it hurt? Hell yeah it hurt. Did I cry? Of course I
did. Did I cry in front of anyone else? No.
Shouldn�t surprise you, I�ve got enough of Logan in me
to keep my feelings to myself. But that didn�t stop
Scott from realizing that I wasn�t being quite as
truthful with my friends as they would like. I
honestly think Scott gained some of Logan�s super
hearing to have heard me crying that night.
Right now, it wouldn�t surprise me.
