And so this story comes to a close :( Always makes me kinda sad when a story comes to an end :( But not to worry this is only the first part of a trilogy - so there are two more stories to go :) I know the movie verse was based in the early 2000s - but thought it was easier to base it later because of the age of my character and when she was born. As you know I only own my own character - anything else belongs to their respective owners. Constructive criticism and reviews are welcome as always and on with the show :)

X-Men The Imperfect Angel Saga – Part One: First Love

Chapter Twenty: Epilogue

Caroline's POV

When I woke up I gave a groan as I waited for the dizziness to subside. Yet I found myself tensing when I heard another groan. I looked around to try and get my bearings, when I noticed a figure in black sitting up on the ground. At first I was unable to tell who the figure in black actually was, but the moment they turned around I was shocked to see none other than The Phantom himself. But what was he doing here? How did he get here? Suddenly he came towards me, and without warning he grabbed me harshly around the throat.

"What happened and where the hell am I?!" He asked angrily, tightening his grip slightly on my throat, as I gripped his arms in the hopes he would let me go. Just as spots began to grace my vision, I breathed in huge gasps of air, as I attempted to return my breathing to normal. Yet I felt someone touch my hair gently, to which I swatted their hand away and breathed angrily.

"Don't you dare touch me! You have no right to touch me after all you've done to me!"

"Please forgive me – I am just confused about where we are." The Phantom replied.

"We are in New York, and it is the year 2012." I replied slowly, before waiting for the information to sink in.

"How is that possible?" He asked slowly.

"You wouldn't believe me if I told you." I replied quietly, before trying to gain my bearings again – even though I knew we were in New York, and I somehow knew it was the year 2012. But what were we going to do now? We had no money, and nowhere to live – and the Phantom wasn't exactly the most inconspicuous person in the world.

"We need to find shelter for the night – the night is setting in and it will be cold tonight." I said quietly, despite not knowing where to find any shelter nearby. I guess we could find an abandoned building to squat in – and hope I won't encounter any police officers along the way. Eventually we found a nearby abandoned warehouse – all the while we were unaware of where in New York we ended up – and the events which occurred whilst we were gone. Yet as I fell asleep, I didn't know what the future would hold – or how the Phantom and I would survive in the modern world. A world that deserted and betrayed me – full of discrimination and fear...
