A/N: I do not own X- Evolution
Kitty was giddy; absolutely giddy. She chuckled like a crazy person: that totally rhymes- giddy Kitty. Haha. She swirled iceberg lettuce around with a fork, chasing a cherry tomato around on her plate with a Pyro inspired smile. She had totally survived this brutal, harsh, unfashionable environment and was ready to go home.
Piotr took her hand and focused into her blue eyes, a warm and amused smile on his face. "Katya," He almost chuckled at her strange grin. "Are you alright?"
Her eyes went all dreamy whenever he said her name- would the Russian accent ever make her insides not turn as gooey as Jet Puffed marshmallow crème? It was highly doubtful. "I'm great! I'm like totally awesome! Like, really awesomely great." She said, embarrassed that she had glazed over while he was still waiting for a response. Still don't have the 'stop babbling like an idiot' thing down.
Remy stabbed a silvery fork at Rogue's macaroni and cheese. She battered him away playfully as he tried to nudge her out of the way. "Remy stop it! If you wanted mac n' cheese you should have got some you're self!"
"Don't be stingy chère," he said, popping a triumphant bite in his mouth before she could swat his hand away.
Kitty lifted a plastic cup of sparkling cider, "Here's to a…sort of successful summer." She giggled, "And new levels of awesomeness."
"I'll drink to that," Remy raised his cup with a triumphant wink. "Here's to putting Scotty in his place." He smirked; Scott glared from across the dining hall.
"Here's to out pranking Bobby Drake," Rogue smiled reluctantly, nudging her cup in the air.
"Here's to comrades, old and new." Piotr closed with a nod and clinked his glass with the other three.
Everything had come together: Scott and Jean sat in the corner, hanging on each other's every word; Bobby had invaded Jubilee and Amara's table and was throwing down lame pick up lines; even the Brotherhood was bickering less than usual. Logan's eyes shifted over the campers- could it be? Peace? It was almost too much to hope for.
"I do believe," Remy drawled as he stood, "It is time for us to be going,"
Rogue gave him a what-are-you-talking-about look. He tugged her seat out from the table and threw her over his shoulder, sack of potatoes style.
"Remy LeBeau! What do you think you're doing?" She smacked him in the back. Remy saluted Pete and shot Kitty a wink. She rolled her eyes and laughed.
"She's going to kill you!" Kitty yelled as they exited.
"Gambit knows Chaton." He called over his shoulder as Rogue threw a mild tantrum.
He set her down in a grassy patch, where she promptly socked him in the chest. She scowled; he chuckled.
"Come on chère, Remy was only playing." He tilted his head with a devious smirk. She remained silent, with a glare that could make Wolverine back off. He leaned down and kissed her temple, and her face softened. He took her hand and sat with her as she looked up at the stars. Her green eyes glittered in the moonlight. "You know chèrie," he scooted closer to her, placing his lips millimeters from her ear in a way that made her insides twitch. "You never told us what you learned."
"What?" She turned her face toward his. She could feel him breathing.
"At Wolvie's little self help circle- what did you learn?"
She chuckled- the nick name never failed to make her smile. "Ah learned," she bit her lip and paused- looking for the just right answer. "Ah learned, that, being afraid, doesn't mean you can't have faith, to trust in people," she tilted her head with a light, mildly serious smile.
"Well then," He said with a smile. He picked up her hand and touched it to his lips for a long second. He leaned his face close to her face, placed a gentle hand under her chin. "Can I fix something chèrie?"
She nodded and he closed the gap between his lips and hers. She felt sparkly- dang it! Too much time with Kitty!
He pulled away with a goofy grin. "Now we have had a proper first kiss," he wrapped her up in his arms and she chuckled at the ridiculous memory. They sat under the stars, eyes locked, in a comfortable, content place.
The Next Morning
"So how was it?" Kitty finally blurted out after several jittery moments of bouncing in front of the bus.
"Was what?" Rogue blushed.
Kitty's smug grin made Rogue glower, then laugh. "It was better than the first."
Kitty snickered- she had totally called it from the beginning.
Their group of four huddled together in the back of the bus, their adventure coming to a glorious close.
