5. chapter 5

By using the real cerebro, the Professor soon found Colossus and the other students, when they returned to the mansion. All of them were very sad, when they heard about Jean Grey's fate. Almost everybody gathered outside the mansion the same night for a memorial ceremony, to glory their lost teacher, friend and girlfriend. Everybody had loved her and she had never given anybody reason to do otherwise.

Rogue could see Kitty crying a few feet away from her, holding Bobby's hand. Rogue herself was sitting between Jubilee and Kurt, who turned out to be a really nice guy.

One of the few, who didn't attend the ceremony, was Logan. Rogue had no idea where he was. All she knew, was that he had taken off on Scott's motorcycle, shortly after they returned, without a word about when or if he would be back.

"She seemed like a very good person," Kurt said. Rogue nodded. She was.

After the ceremony the Professor ordered everybody to go to bed. Tomorrow, could those who wanted to, go back to their families until the school was ready for teaching again. He also gave Kurt the opportunity to stay, as long as he wanted, which he agreed to. He wanted to stay and help fixing the damage the soldiers had caused.

o*o*o*

Rogue couldn't sleep. She had been tossing and turning for hours. Every time she closed her eyes, she would see Strykers evil smile.

She had feared what he would do to her, and what he had meant by her being the last piece in his project. She had feared that she would have become one of his controlled puppets, like he had done with Kurt, or Lady Deathstrike. But she wasn't. And she didn't have adamantium bones either. Hopefully, Logan had managed to rescue her, before Stryker got to do anything, but she had a feeling that, that wasn't the case.

Despite the Professors orders, she stood up, just to go for a walk. Hopefully that would help fall asleep when she came back.

She walked down the hall, feeling a bit uncomfortable. The atmosphere all over the mansion, was so sad, after the attack and Jean's death and it didn't help that Storm had made it rain during the night, trying to wash away the footprints of the military boots on the ground, so they wouldn't have to look at them in the morning.

But that wasn't what made her feel uncomfortable. It was a weird feeling that something had changed. Not in the mansion, but inside her... She couldn't put her finger on it, but...

Rogue stopped, when she realized that there was light coming out from the ajar door beside her. This was Logan's room. He was back.

She raised her hand to knock, but stopped in the action. Logan had left to get away from everything, and he hadn't come back, until everyone was asleep. He probably needed more time and sleep, before he was ready to see anybody. She should give him some space...

"Are you gonna come in, or just stand out there, like a creepy stalker?"

Rogues heart missed a beat, but she carefully pushed the door open enough for her to walk in. He was sitting on the bed, back leaning up against the wall, in a pair of jeans and an undershirt.

"Hey. I'm... I didn't know you were back..." Wow, that just made it seem worse! Idiot! "I mean, I couldn't sleep, so I went for a walk, and then I saw that you were back, but I thought that wanted to sleep so..."

"It's okay, darling," Logan grinned.

Rogue couldn't help smiling, herself. She sat down beside him on the bed, and he laid his arm around her shoulders.

"I'm sorry I just left," he said. He should have said something to her first, so she would know, that he wasn't gonna leave her behind again.

"It's okay, Logan. I know that you really cared about her." Rogue tried to sound understanding, but she couldn't hide the bit of hurt in her voice.

"No. I didn't," he answered.

"What?" Was he trying to deny it? Denial never led to anything good. "Logan, it's okay to be sad..."

"I know, darling. And at first I thought I was, but I felt confused. So I took off to get my head cleared," he said. "Now I know, that I was only attracted to her."

"But I thought that you..."

".. Were in love with her? Yep. So did I," he said quietly. Jean had been hot as hell and he had wanted to fuck her, but never more than that. "When we first came here, I quickly realized, that Jean was Scott's girl. And that Scott was the leader of the X-men. So my bestial instincts, made me want to fight him. Without thinking about it or even knowing it, I tried to make him weaker, and what better way would there be, than stealing his mate?"

Rogue sat up straight and looked at him. "So... you tried to hook up with Jean, because you wanted to be leader of the X-men?"

"No. I just couldn't stand the idea of someone, I don't respect, to be above me, so I followed my instincts."

Rogue wasn't sure how to react. It had been a horrible thing to do, but she couldn't help feeling a bit relieved...

"I guess, Stryker was right: I'm just an animal, with claws."

"No!" she said. She turned around, so she was sitting on her knees, looking him straight in the eyes. "You are not, just an animal, Logan! You are so much more than that! I know, I've seen it! An animal would only be thinking of its own needs. You don't do that. You gave me a ride, after I snuck on your truck, you followed me when I ran away and you got to the top of the Statue of Liberty, and almost died to save me! And it's not just me. You also tried to save the kids when the mansion was attacked, and you traveled all the way to Alkali Lake, to help getting us out of there." Holy shit, she was babbling... "The point is, that you care about others. You are not an animal, Logan, you are a friend. My friend." She wanted to be more than friends, but that was not what she should focus on, right now. Right now she had to make him understand his value. But she didn't know how else to explain it so he would understand it.

Logan didn't say anything. He just reached out and took her bare hand and squeezed it. She laid back against him and he held her even closer that before. "Thanks, Marie," he mumbled.

She stroked his arm, and they sat like that for a while.

"I guess this wasn't really how you had hoped to spend your twentieth birthday, huh?" Logan mumbled.

"Not really, no," she admitted.

"Well, I didn't get the chance to get you a real present, so I guess this will have to do." He reached into his pocked and pulled out something shining.

"Your dog tags," Rogue said. She thought she had lost them. "Where did you get...?"

"Stryker threw them to me, when I met him," Logan explained. "I want you to have them." He carefully took her wrist and tied them around it.

Rogue watched his action, when she suddenly remembered... "Logan I've got something for you too!" she said and jumped off the bed.

"It's okay, it can wait," he began. He didn't expect her to give him anything, and he actually liked sitting like this, holding her.

"No, you've waited long enough!" She opened the door, and walked as fast as she could, back to her own room, with Logan right behind her. She turned on the light and grabbed the black USB key on her desk. She turned around and reached it to a bit slower to him. Logan took it and looked from it to Marie.

"It's... Logan, this contains everything, Stryker knew about your past."

Logans eyes widened. This was what Marie had downloaded from the computer. She had known that they had been running out of time, but she had still... "You risked your life, so I could get back my memory?" That was all he could say.

"Yes. Logan, you mean very much to me, and I know how much this means to you. You deserve to know what happened..." She didn't manage to say anymore, before Logan pulled her into a very tight hug.

"Thank you, Marie!"

It was long before he let go of her, but she enjoyed every second of it, and she hadn't feared hurting him, for as much as a moment.

"You really would do this for me?" Logan asked again and looked at the USB key. It wasn't often that you would see him this emotional, but no one (at least what he could remember) had ever done such thing for him before.

"Of course," she answered.

Logan stayed with her the rest of the night, holding her, and keeping every nightmare away.

o*o*o*

"Rogue! Watch out!" Nightcrawler yelled. He teleported to her side, wrapped his arms around her and teleported her 20 feet away, right before the rock landed on her!

She had stopped to catch her breath for the fourth time this class and she didn't understand why she couldn't keep up with the rest. She used to…

"The whole world is going to hell, and you're just going to sit there?" Logan asked, and looked at them.

Rogue took a deep breath before she started running again.

o*o*o*

"You okay, darling?" Logan asked, when the class was over and they were walking down the hall.

"Yeah, I'm fine," she answered.

"Really? You didn't look fine in there."

"I'm just a little out of shape, that's all," Rogue answered. Just like she had been the last three training lessons, since the classes had started again.

"There you are, chica!" Jubilee said. "Come on, let's get going!"

"I'll see you later, Logan," Rogue said.

The two of them had agreed to go shopping today. They had gotten very close, since the kidnapping two months ago.

"So, how are you and Wolvie doing?" Jubilee asked, when they were sitting in her car. "Is something gonna happen between you two or what?"

"Jubilee!" Rogue said blushing.

"Is there?"

"I don't know," she admitted. She wanted something to happen between them, but she doubted that it was ever going to be. Logan had slept in the same bed as her the last two months to keep away her nightmares, but it had never gotten any further than hugging and spooning. "You know I want it, but... I'm starting to think that we'll be better off as friends. He still hasn't mentioned the kiss..."

"And neither have you, am I right, chica?" Jubilee cut her off. "Come on, what are you afraid of? You like him and he likes you, and yes, you know that, because he gave you, his dog tags! Just tell him already."

"I really don't know..."

"Fine. Then I'll do it."

"No! I'll tell him, I promise! I just need to figure out how."

"Now we're talking, girl!" They had a great time in the mall, where Jubilee, found all kinds of cloth for Rogue to try on. Here among a lot of sexy underwear...

Rogue almost forgot about her appointment with Hank McCoy later. He had taken over the nursing in the mansion, until they found someone else who could take the job, but there were not many mutants who were educated doctors.

Rogue wished that she could have gone to a normal doctor, she wouldn't risk meeting in the halls, but she knew that she had to do it. She had felt sick almost every day the last two weeks and she couldn't keep blaming it on bad food.

She was sure that it was nothing, which was why she hadn't told anybody, but she just wanted to be sure.

o*o*o*

Logan was walking down the halls towards the kitchen, when he heard soft crying.

It came from Marie's room!

He was knocking on the door before he knew it. The door was opened, but it was by Jubilee.

"What happened?" Logan asked. He tried to look past her, but the door wasn't open enough for him to see her.

"I don't know, Wolvie," Jubilee said quietly. "She won't tell me. At first, she kept mumbling that it shouldn't be possible. Then she got very quiet a few minutes. Then she started crying again, this time saying that she didn't know what to do."

"Do about what?"

"Beats me, but I think that it has something do with when she saw Beast for an appointment or something."

She had been to the doctor? She hadn't mentioned anything about that to him.

"You know, she might want to open more up to you, so how about that, I just leave you two alone?" She walked past him not closing the door.

Logan watched as she walked down the hall. Sometimes he really wondered why Marie kept hanging out with her, but the girl had good sides too.

Logan turned his attention to the ajar door, and pushed it open, so he could walk in. She was laying in her bed, under the duvet, with the back turned to him. She looked up towards him, when she heard him come in.

"Hey, kid," he said softly, to make it sound like everything was going to be okay (even though he had no idea what was wrong in the first place), but it just made her eyes filled with new tears and she started sobbing down into her pillow again.

Logan closed the door and walked over to the other side of the bed. He sat down, and laid a hand on the duvet, where her shoulder was. "What's going on?"

She just shook her head, and kept crying.

"Come on, it can't be that bad," Logan mumbled. He hated seeing her like this. "Does this have anything to do, with the doctor's appointment?"

"Yeah," she cried.

Logan gave her shoulder a squeeze. It had to be something seriously for her to react this way. "Marie," he said and held a hand down in front of her face. "You know, that if you need any healing, then..."

"No." She shook her head. "Your healing can't fix this, Logan."

"Yes. I don't think there is any illness or injury it can't get rid of." Heck, it could even grow back his bones.

"It's not an illness!" she cried out loud. Louder than she intended to.

"Then what is it? Marie, you can tell me." Please tell me, he prayed silently. He wanted to help her, but he couldn't do that, if he didn't know what was wrong.

Rogue breathed deeply, and sat up, so the duvet fell off her, and she could look him in the eyes. "I'm... I'm pregnant!"

Logans eyes widened. "Pregnant?"

Rogue nodded. "At first I didn't believe it either," she mumbled. Yes, she had noticed that she had had a hard time catching her breath, had been eating more and been nausea, but she had never thought about being pregnant. Especially not since she had had what she thought was her period, but according to Beast that happened to some women. "But the test results are clear. I'm two months pregnant."

Logan didn't know what to say. Pregnant. He couldn't... It didn't make sense! Marie... He didn't even know that she had been seeing someone, since Bobby. The only guy, beside himself, he knew of, was the elf. And he would never have pictured them as a couple. They were more like siblings in his eyes, than anything else.

But she had been with somebody, and it made him angry as hell! Who dared to touch his Marie?! His? No, who was he kidding? She didn't belong to him, even though he wished that she did, but he would never be able to make her as happy as she deserved to be. Still, he didn't like the idea of someone else holding her.

"Who is the father?" Logan asked.

Rogue hesitated, still not looking at him. "I don't know."

"Marie," Logan said, as soft as he could, trying to suppress his jealousy. "Tell me. I promise I won't hurt him." He had been very protective, since Bobby broke her heart, and it actually seemed like most of the guys in the mansion, were afraid to get near her, because of him.

"I can't! Logan I'm a virgin!" she answered loudly. "I shouldn't be pregnant!"

Logan was stunned. Literally stunned. He had no idea what to say. Virgin. How could she be two months pregnant, if she never had sex with anybody?

Two months? Two months ago the mansion had been attacked! "Stryker," Logan growled realizing the truth.

"Yes," Rogue whimpered. "He said that he needed me for a special project... But I never thought that..." New tears ran down her cheeks, and her breath turned into sobs.

Logan clenched his fists. If Stryker hadn't been gone, he would have gotten out and tortured him to his death! But the son of a bitch was death. Lucky bastard.

Logan turned his attention back towards Marie, who had lain down again, sobbing with her back turned to him.

He had promised to take care of her, and now this had happened! Great job!

No. He couldn't focus on the anger now. Right now, he had to be there for Marie.

He laid down beside her and put his arm around her. She took his hand with both of hers and held it firmly as he pulled her close, as the only thing he could do, to make her feel safe.
