How Long Will It Last?
Thoughts swam through his mind as he lay on the grass looking
up at the stars. His new wife, who didn't care all that much
if he lived or died. How he was supposed to tell his friends.
Especially after the way that Rogue, Jubilee, Psylocke, and
Jean lashed out - not to mention the others. At least Rogue
and Kitty are the only ones that know about it here. He
continued his thoughts, unaware that from one of the mansion
windows, he was being watched.
She watched him as he just lay there on the grass. She wondered
how he could ally himself with that psycho. Ah guess ah
better go talk to him. She flew quietly down to where
Logan lay, but he already knew she was there.
"Hey Logan, what're ya up to?"
"Just thinkin'...what about you?"
"Ah've been thinkin' too...ah think it's about time
you told the others about Viper."
He just turned his head and watched her lay herself down
on the ground.
"Logan, you're married. It's bad enough it's to Viper,
but the fact that you're married. It's kinda important."
"Hmmm, tomorrow mornin' at the meetin' Storm called."
Storm. How am I gonna tell her? She'll be furious.
Rogue stood up and said goodbye, and then flew back to her
room, leaving Logan alone to his thoughts.
Storm looked at all the XMen gathered around the table.
So many have gone, left, and without Cyclops and Jean...were
the X-Men still as alive as they had been once.
"Good Morning everyone."
They all mumbled their replies.
"We...with so many of us gone, our effectiveness as
a team...we are no longer a large group, and so we need to
improve our teamwork skills...we need to learn to function
as a smaller group."
She looked around again, no-one was really listening, after
all, they must have all had the same thoughts at one time
or another. She was panicking...what could she say to these
people, to her friends.
Logan stood up...it was time for him to say something about
Viper. "Uh, 'Ro, I uh, I need to say something."
He looked at Kitty and Rogue, and they both knew what it
was he was going to say. They walked over towards him, and
stood by his side.
"I have something to say...it's important. Uh, we all
know about Gumbo's little secret, and well...I got one of
They all looked at him, confusion written on their faces.
"I...I'm married, it was just a couple of months ago,
and well, the lucky girl is..."
Logan didn't get to finish his sentence as the mansion door
was broken down...and a barely breathing body lay gasping
"Viper!!" Logan cried.
