Disclaimer: Emilia's mine. That's it. The rest belong to other people.
"Are you coming?" Emilia popped her head into the younger girl's room.
"Gimme a sec." Rogue called from the bathroom. "Kitty took forever this morning."
"Of course, Kurt's taking her out after school today."
"You're kiddin'" Rogue's head popped put of the bathroom, "Those two? Wow."
"Don't be shocked, there cute together."
"Sure, if yer into blue fur and tails."
Emilia snorted a laugh, "That's right I forgot. You're more into bizarre eyes and Creole charm."
"Are you implin' that I like that… that… swamp rat?"
"Not at all. Not one little bit. Now would you hurry up. I need to drop you and Jean at the library before class."
Rogue stalked put of the bathroom running a hand through her streaked hair. "I don' see why the professor has us studying stuff at the library."
"Books are good for you, Rogue."
She glared at her as she pulled on her long gloves. "Is it cold out?"
"Well," Emilia held out her hand and ticked off things on her fingers, "It's January, were in upstate new York, and there's snow on the ground. Yep, probably cold out."
"Yer a bitch."
"Thanks, lets go."
The two girls ran down the hall and down the large staircase to see Jean standing there tapping her foot.
"What took you too so long?"
"Rogue found out Remy was coming and had to change her outfit."
"He's what!?!" Rouge spun around, "You didn't tell me that!"
"Did I forget?"
"I'm not going."
"Yes you are."
Jean watched them amused. It had been almost two months since Emilia Deringer had been brought to the academy. She had been studying at a small university when she'd lost control of her powers. She studied the two girls arguing side by side. There were more alike than either was readily willing to admit. Right down to the gloves that covered both of their hands. Emilia was an empath. With a touch she was able to absorb emotions and even memories from the people around her and then reflect the back. Most of her teen life she'd controlled it very well. When her sister Desdemona had been killed by anti-mutant protestors. Now event the smallest touch flooded her mind with the entire contents of a persons life. That, it seemed, was the one aspect of her powers she had yet to bring back under control.
"You are going and you're going to like it."
"No. I'm. NOT!"
"Jean," Emilia looked around Rogue, "little help?"
"Sure." Jean extended her powers out and soon she followed Emilia out the door a pouting mutant hovering behind them.
"There's got to some law against this."
Jean almost felt bad about doing this to Rogue she had only started coming out of her shell in recent weeks. Mostly because Kitty and Emilia had made a pact not to let her sulk in her room anymore.
Rouge's pout deepened when she saw the tall dark mutant standing near Emilia's car.
The smirk that seemed to be plastered to his face widened when he saw Rogue.
"Not a word, swamp rat. Not a damn word."
