My Baby Lives
"Not everyone heals as fast as you do Logan."
I walked out to the garage and hopped on my Harley, off to Alkali
Lake I go. I have to make sure Jean is gone, because a part of me
keeps hearing her call my name, a part of me wants to hope, wants to
live, wants to believe. The wind is blowing through my hair, I
remember the last time I rode my bike. Jean was behind me, holding
onto me, it was our anniversary, we had a picnic at the beach, and
afterwards we made love, if only life could be that simple every day.
Finally, I've arrived, I pull off my leather jacket and lay it on my
bike. I walk to the end of a cliff to get a view over the lake.
It's driving me crazy, I yank off my glasses and look out into the
lake, my optic blasts going on for miles. I fall to my knees. I
regain my control and slide them back on. There is a whirlpool
forming in the middle of the lake, did I do that? Then there she is,
standing in front of me, looking just like the day she left, except
now she has long hair again, she's beautiful.
"Jean?" I call out my heart racing with hope and anxiety.
"Scott." She whispers.
"I don't know."
I step forward pulling her into my embrace, holding her in my arms
once again. I've found her. I am the happiest I've been in months,
never was I so happy to see her as I am now, I'm sure that the
feeling is mutual. She pulls back from the embrace and looks at
me, "I want to see your eyes." She says putting her hands on my
"I don't want to hurt you."
"Trust me, I can control it now." I allow her to remove my glasses
and close my eyes tightly.
"Open them." Slowly, unsurely, I open my eyes. They flash red for a
moment, then they fade to blue. I can see her in full color and
she's beautiful. She quickly pulls me into a long awaited kiss, our
tongues dancing together in a glorious song. I don't want to let her
go. I don't know how we made it back to my bike, but we did, and
now we're speeding down the highway heading for home, her arms are
wrapped tighter around me than necessary, but I don't mind, I missed
her, my baby lives.
