Summary: Too bad the only one who realizes John is breaking dies before she
can help him. The rest are too busy being angry to see whats going on.
A/N: I was in a weird mood, so I came up with this. Set during X2. I may
have changed a thing or three.
Bobby and Rogue sit by the fire, whispering and giggling. Although John
sits away from them, his back to them, he can feel Rogue staring daggers
into his back.
Damn her, he thought, playing with the small fireball in his hands. He
needed something to focus on, something to keep his mind somewhat occupied
from the darkness closing in around him. He looked off into the distance,
seeing Magneto and Mystique conferring among themselves. He wanted to go
over there and join them, to have someone to talk to, but he didnt move.
He didnt dare.
He felt her staring at him again. Suddenly, he turned, glaring daggers back
at her. With an outstretched hand, the fire came to him, enveloping him in
flames. Bobby and Rogue jumped to their feet, her taking a step back, him
taking a step forward. Just as quickly as he took the fire, he extinguished
it. Rogue stormed off, toward the jet where Logan and Jean were talking.
John resumed his original seat, taking his lighter out. Opening it, he
stared into the dancing flame, not making it do anything. A hand on his
shoulder let him know that he wasnt alone. John flipped his lighter shut,
then looked to the hand. Bobby. He glanced up, seeing a mix of concern and
anger in Bobbys blue eyes.
What did you do that for? Bobby asked, sitting next to John.
If she has something to say, she can say it to my face. I was tired of her
glaring at me.
Shove it, Bobby. Just because I cant see it doesnt mean I cant feel it.
I knew if I took the fire away, shed go away. She probably ran to her
precious Logan to tell him how the mean and evil Pyro took the fire away.
Why are you like that?
Newsflash. Not everyone has the happy suburban home life. Not everyone
has two parents, a sibling and a pet. Hell, I never even got to have a God
damned goldfish. This, John said, pointing to his head, is what kept me
It also keeps you alone.
John didnt watch Bobby walk away. He didnt need to. Hed seen it too
many times before. People wanting to save St. John Allerdyce only to give
up and leave. And to think he was starting to invest his heart.
Not anymore, he muttered, flicking the lighter open.
Through the dancing flame, he could see Magneto and Mystique watching him.
Pretending not to notice, he took a quick glance over his left shoulder,
then threw a stream of fire back to where the ashes from the old one lay.
He timed it just right, just as Bobby and Rogue were returning to where they
were sitting. The flames stopped only inches short of Rogues feet.
John didnt need to turn around to know the looks Rogue was giving him. The
only look he cared about was the one he secretly noticed on Magnetos
watching face. Pleasure, pride. John finally got the reaction he wanted.
When are you gonna grow up? he heard Rogue asked.
When are you gonna give up?
John stood, going to the fire he created. He noticed that Rogue was
shivering, Bobbys arms wrapped around her to help warm her. John laid on
the ground, opposite the fire from them. He was on his side, facing the
fire, one hand supporting his hand, the other weaving in the flames.
Flames. Nothing to bother him now. He was mesmerized by the flames that he
controlled. He vaguely heard movement behind him, but ignored it. For the
first time in a long time, he felt almost peaceful and content. He was
determined to enjoy it while it lasted, since he knew it was going to be all
too brief. He felt hands grab his arm, yanking it from the fire. He was
forced onto his back, staring up wide eyed to Logan, who was glaring down at
