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.
Before Logan could say anything, John rolled back onto his side. His hand
was again in the fire, and out almost immediately, with a flickering
fireball in his hand. He rolled onto his back, seeing that Logan hadnt
moved and was still staring at him.
Youre more trouble than youre worth, the grizzly older man snapped.
If youre going to insult me, try to be more original. Ive heard that
too many times before. The only thing that changes is the face, John
replied, never taking his eyes off the fireball.
Logan reached down and John knew his hands were coming straight for his
throat. John suddenly sat up, engulfing himself in the flames. To get him
now, Logan would have to endure a lot of pain.
Logan, what do you think youre doing? Jean exclaimed, using her
telekinetic abilities to yank him a few feet away from John.
Dont tell me youre protecting him, Jean, Logan said, exasperated.
I dont need to ask what your intentions were when you were going for his
throat, Jean said pointedly.
John shifted the fire that had him engulfed to the already-made campfire,
which surged with heat and height. Jean turned to look at John, who was on
his feet and dusting himself off.
Sorry, he muttered, looking down.
You do realize he couldve gotten Bobby and Rogue killed back there, Logan
shot back. The kids out of control.
One, Im not a kid. Two, Im right here, so stop talking about me like Im
not, John said, stepping between Jean and Logan.
Logan and John entered into a type of standoff. Logans ademantium claws
were extended, John held a hand to the fire, ready to use it if necessary.
Jean stepped between the two, looking both in the eye. Jean could only feel
anger radiating from Logan. But she gasped from what she felt from John.
Instead of staying, John turned away and stormed off. He passed Bobby and
Rogue, shoulder-checking the blond.
Get used to the cold, he whispered in Rogues ear. What I create, I can
also take away.
Darkness quickly set in as John extinguished the campfire for the second
time. Magneto, Mystique, Storm, Nightcrawler, Logan, Jean, Bobby and Rogue
gathered in the X-jet for warmth and light. Only Jean vocalized concern for
Let him be, Storm said after Jean announced she was going to look for him.
If Rogue was the one to walk off, no one would say let her be. Wed all be
out looking for her. I know a little about what hes feeling, whats in his
head, Jean replied from the top of the ramp, her gaze falling on Rogue,
and so do you.
Rogue simply looked away, edging a little closer to Bobby. Everyone watched
Jean walk down the ramp with a flashlight to light the way. She used her
telepathy to guide her to where John was hiding. It didnt take her long to
find him, he wasnt too far away. She shut off her flashlight as she
approached, using the light from his fire to light her way.
She sat down next to fire, facing John. His only movement was to look away.
She touched his chin, turning his head to face her. She was almost
shocked to see the sadness in his eyes.
They were going to shoot us anyway, was all he said, turning to stare into
the small fire. So I got a little carried away, its not like Wolverine
Although she wanted to say something, she couldnt. She couldnt argue with
the fact he gave her.
Cmon John, we should get back to the jet. We need to rest for tomorrow.
John obliged, the first to his feet. He extended a hand to Jean, who
promptly took it. She switched the flashlight on, and when she saw John put
the fire out, she led the way back to the jet. Once both were inside, she
pulled the ramp up. He avoided the glaring eyes of Rogue and Bobby,
settling away from them, facing the wall.
He broke a cardinal rule of survival. Never face the wall. Keep your back
to the wall. Facing the wall isnt safe. But he was so tired, he didnt
care. In the morning, preparations were made to head out. John, Bobby and
Rogue were left in the jet, told to stay put. As Bobby and Rogue watched
the team, plus Magneto and Mystique leave, John never took his eyes off of
Jean. His protector was leaving, hed be alone with Bobby and Rogue.
As they left, John said suddenly to the couple, Be careful what you wish
for, you just might get it.
John went off, sitting by the open ramp, staring into the flame from his
lighter. Bobby and Rogue could only stare at him, wondering what he meant.
