Wasn't no way to back out now, Remy, I tol' myself. The door'd been knocked on, and I could hear the shuffle of feet comin' to answer it. It'd already been a couple'a weeks since M-Day, an' we'd all had our hands more'n full with the tent city that'd sprung up on our front yard, them shiny new Sentinels standin' over us like big metal vultures, and still keepin' the school open an' runnin'. Even I couldn't get out of doin' my mentor thing, and right now, it did appear to be needed, and bad.

Finally, though, I'd carved out some time this mornin' to go say hello and actually spend a few grown-up and alone minutes with Rogue. Not that I was expectin' anything romantic or all, but I was definitely lookin' forward to talkin' to someone about things other than homework and why 'Mr. Summers' is such a hard-ass and what a boy should do about 'funny feelings' around so many young ladies in skintight outfits.

Oui, especially that last one.

Rogue cracked open the door and turned a sleepy green eye at me. I waved.

"Jus' lil' ol' me," I said, smilin'.

The door opened further, revealin' my gal looking very sleep-rumpled and sexy as all hell in an oversized shirt I was pretty sure she'd lifted from my closet. My smile dipped a little. It was almost ten, I hadn't thought I'd be wakin' her up.

"Late night, chere?"

((Open to Rogue))

When is a raven like a writin' desk?

Supposedly, there's no answer t' that riddle. I believe that-- spent a whole two days on tryin' t' figure it out when I was a little bit of a thing, and if you knew my attention span back then, you know that's sayin' something.

When is a mutant not a mutant?

Once upon a time, there wouldn't've been an answer to that one, either. But voila, overnight, there was an answer for all but a hundred ninety-eight of us. The answer was, "when some crazy lil' gal decides they shouldn't be".

Me, I've always been plenty at ease with bein' a mutant, and havin' these powers. They've been a help more'n a hindrance, especially in my chosen profession, and they do make for some spectacular party tricks. I got no problem with that whatever gene that switches on a body's powers, and I got no problem with other people gettin' all switched on themselves.

Nah, it's the other stuff about me I've had problems with. It's the folks who've had a hand in turnin' and twistin' my life down the kinds of roads I ain't never wanted to walk. Some I had to deal with willingly, some not so much, and too often they ended up bein' the baddest of the bad. Didn't do too much for the good of my own soul, either.

'Course, I gotta wonder 'bout Rogue. She sittin' back, wonderin' how them 198 got chosen? Is she thinkin', "why not me?" I hope not, but I still gotta wonder, knowin' her. Like most times, it's 'bout time we did some talkin', and neither one of us seems willin' to open the parlay.

Guess I'm gonna have to. Yup. Any minute now.
