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
I had absolutely no intention of ever going back to
Xavier�s place. There was nothing for me there. Yeah,
Marie was there, but after Jean died we tried it and
it didn�t work out. Yes I realize I�m an asshole. It
happens, get over it.
No intention what so ever. None. But, about five years
after I left Marie tracked me down. For a wedding. Not
her�s thankfully. For Storm and Kurt�s. Seems that
Storm really wanted all of the X-Men there. And if
Jean couldn�t be there in body, well at least I could,
Marie told me. Fine, whatever I told her. I�d do my
I never expected what I saw when I got back. Not in a
million years. I had thought that Marie would end up
back with Popsicle. Ya know, someone her own age.
I had forgotten that the look in her eyes lets you
know that she�s a whole lot older than she looks, than
The first thing I noticed when I got back was that
Marie wasn�t wearing gloves anymore. The second thing
was that she smelled a whole lot like Scooter.
Scooter had told me when I first got to Xavier�s, it
seems like a million years ago now, in reality it was
only three; to stay away from his girl. So it seemed
only fair to whisper to him �Think twice before you
touch my girl, Scooter.�
�It�s a little late to be giving advice, Logan. And
besides, she�s not your girl. She�s mine,� Scott said
looking Logan straight in the eyes. �Any chance of her
being your girl, left a long time ago, when you did.�
�Logan,� Storm said as she walked towards the two men.
�Good to see you, I�m glad that Rogue convinced you to
come. Come and say hello to Kurt.� Storm didn�t have
to say that she was saying all of this just to get
separate the two men, for a little while at least.
The wedding took place on Saturday. I had ever
intention of leaving on Saturday night. But a large
amount of alcohol seems to impair good judgment. So I
stuck around. But I was hanging out on the roof, away
from the happy couple, and Storm and Kurt, and all the
others. I had been doing my best impression of grin
and bear all day, and wasn�t in the mood to be around
people. Then again, I never am.
I fell asleep on the roof, and woke up early Sunday
morning to the sun glaring in my face. I�m not a
So I wandered downstairs to find a quite, dark room.
Obviously, the rec room was out. Some of these kids
never sleep around here. The study seemed like a good
place. All the requirements, dark, quiet, and very
little chance of any kids popping in.
The third thing I noticed was a ring on her left hand.
She had come into the study to do some homework. The
light caught it as she was writing.
I sat watching her for a while, just thinking. All
claims I had on Rogue were null and void. That stone
on her finger told me so, even more than Scooter
berating me. Finally said something before the silence
�Logan, I didn�t see you over there. Do you want me to
leave? I can go back to my room to study.�
�No, it�s ok. Thought maybe we could talk some
�Ok. Shoot then.�
A million questions were running through my head. I
settled for a non-dangerous one. �What happened to
�Oh, yeah. I forgot I hadn�t told you. Got a hold on
my mutation a couple of years ago. So, no gloves, or
�Oh, well, congratulations. Must make things more
interesting around here.�
She smiled, one of those sweet little smiles that for
the longest had been reserved for me. �Yeah, it does.�
She started packing her books back into her bag. I
still had one last question I had to ask before she
left, before I left.
�He make you happy?�
She looked like she was searching for a word to
describe it and finally settled on a plain �Yes.�
Everything thing about her said she was telling the
�Make sure you invite me to the wedding.� She smiled
as she walked out of the door.
I left right after that. Didn�t stick around, didn�t
tell anyone good bye. Just climbed onto my bike and
She won�t invite me, and I wouldn�t come if she did.
We both knew that. It was just my way of saying, go
