How Long Will It Last?
Wolverine ran outside hoping to catch whoever had done this,
but all he caught were two unmistakable scents - that of Sabretooth
and Omega Red.
What would Creed be doin' working with Red?
He ran back inside to where Rogue stood with Viper in her
"Go get Cecilia, now!!"
He took off as fast as he could, to get Cecilia Reyes.
Rogue had taken Viper up to the infirmary, where all the
X-Men had tried their best to help with the huge gash she
had across her stomach, and all the other little cuts, and
"Okay people, what have we got here?"
The undeniable sound of Doctor Cecilia Reyes broke through
the panic. She looked at Viper, checking to see where the
broken bones were, checking the bruising, cleaning out the
cuts, and trying to clean up the stomach wound.
"AAARRGGHHH!! Logan...Logan, where is he?"
"I'm right here darlin'" Logan took hold of her

She looked down at him. He had married one of the deadliest
villians in the world, and not told her. She felt betrayed,

"'Ro...say somethin' darlin'." He looked at her
and could see the hurt in her eyes. Musta been the same
look Gumbo saw in Rogue's eyes before she dumped him in Antarctica.
"What...what do you expect me to say Logan? I thought
we had a special friendship, and yet Kitty and Rogue know
about it before I, and you don't even have the guts to tell
me as soon as you were finished in Madripoor. Tell me what
