Don't you think that I deserve
To hear you say goodbye?
That ain't no way to go
Was it all a lie?
After all this time that ain't no way to go.

Logan heard a dull thud from inside Jean's room and
rushed inside, noting the large book on the floor and
a new dent in the wall. He turned to Jean, eyebrow
raised. "Not your favorite book, I take it?"
Jean forced a smile. "Not really." She sighed and
her whole form seemed to sag. "God, Logan, how could
he just leave like that? Without even saying
"He didn't know how to say it, darlin'," Logan
replied, sitting down on the bed beside her and
wrapping his arm around her shoulders.
Jean pulled back and looked at the man beside her with
obvious shock. "Did I just hear you defend Scott?"
He shrugged. "Don't expect me to make a habit of it.
This time... I can see it, why he left. I did it
"Yeah, you did. That was different, though.
"Yeah. He's Scott."
"Yeah." Her fist pounded gently onto Logan's leg.
"Why did you let him leave? Why didn't you stop him?"
"Because it's not my business to tell Scooter what he

"Plus, I ain't exactly the right guy to go to for
sermonizing. Guess I could've warned him he was

It didn't. Jean shook her head. "I'm sorry. It's...
I'm not mad at you. Or him. I'm mad at myself. He
wouldn't have left otherwise, would he? If I..."
"Look, if you're gonna take the blame, I gotta pull at
least half of it off your shoulders. This whole
situation took the both of us," he reminded his lover
softly. "Don't beat yourself up, Jeannie."
"I just miss him," she admitted. "We haven't talked
or seen each other much the past few months, but..."
her voice faltered.
"But that doesn't mean you don't love him."
"Don't worry 'bout it, darlin'. I hear most people
have lotsa love to go around. Just tough old bastards
like me that have trouble with it."
This time he received a smile and a small laugh for
his efforts. "Stop it! I'm trying to be upset."
"You should be putting more effort into it, then."
Jean wrapped her arms around Logan's chest and rested
her forehead against his neck. "Thanks."
"Don't mention it, Jeannie. I just want you to be
Well? Didja like it? Didja? Huh?
