"Bring her in here," Lucian said.
The group was in a medlab of some sort and Raze was still holding Marie.
"Set her on there," Lucian said, motioning to the table in the middle of the room.
Raze carefully put Marie down and backed up.
"Go tell Michael that I'm dressing her wounds," Lucian told him. He didn't need the girls cousin overreacting right now.
Getting bandages and gauze, he went over to the table. He set down the supplies and stood in front of Marie. He was about to tell her to remove her shirt so he could dress her wound, but she grabbed him.
Marie was holding onto him as if her life depended on it. Lucian was startled but relaxed and let her.
"It was horrible," he heard her whisper. "All I wanted to do was leave, but they got out their guns."
He felt her shudder at the word 'guns'.
"I hate guns," she whispered, frantically. "I hate them! And then I heard them shooting, and it scared me so much. Please don't leave me Lucian. I don't want to be alone right now."
"Don't worry," he said, softly, trying to soothe her. "I'm not going to leave. But I need to dress your wound."
Slowly and reluctantly, she let him go. He told her to put her arms up and lifted the shirt up and off of her. The wound was a bloody mess, and was still bleeding. He carefully cleaned it hearing her suck in a breath every so often.
He finished wrapping her shoulder in gauze and tape and stood for a moment, thinking of what to do. Quietly saying "Come on," he picked her up and carried her out the door. Micahel, Selene, Logan, and Raze had been waiting just outside the door and all looked up when Lucian came out.
Lucian just nodded, silently telling them Marie was alright and made his way to her room while they all followed.
The few lycans that were in the halls parted when they saw Lucian carrying the curled up girl. Lucian just ignored them all and stalked into her room, gently laying her on the bed.
Michael stood at the foot of the bed, watching her, helplessly, "What do we do?"
"You're the doctor!" Logan said, irritated.
"This is more of a psychological thing than physical!" Michael yelled, getting in Logan's face.
"Enough!" Lucian yelled. He stood next to the bed, with Marie clutching his arm. "I have decided that she will begin training with the use of weapons, especially guns."
At the word 'guns' Marie shivered a little.
Lucian continued, "That is the only way she will overcome her fear."
Raze nodded, and left to arrange the training. Logan stood, staring for a minute before sighing and following the large lycan.
Michael just stood watching his cousin, till Selene touched his arm and motioned toward the door. He nodded, slightly, taking one last look at Marie before leaving.
The following morning, Michael came down to the large hall. He saw Marie sitting at one of the tables, alone.
Heading over, he sat down next to her and just stared at her for a moment.
Before he could say anything, Marie spoke up, "There is only one thing in the entire universe that stands between you and oblivion…"
Michael sat for a moment, "Uh, and what is that?"
Marie looked at him smiling, "The most brilliant mind in the galaxy! You're lookin' at her!"
Michael gave a smile, "Yeah, okay Washu." The sat in a few minutes of silence till Michael said, "Listen, Marie, about yesterday."
"I don't want to talk about it," Marie said quickly. "I just want to forget it ever happened."
Michael nodded, "Thought so." With that he patted her back and got them some food.
Just as they had started eating, Logan came in. He sat down across from Marie, practically beaming.
"God," Marie scowled. "Must you be so perky and happy in the morning?"
Logan smiled more, "Well, I'm not the one with training today."
She snorted, while trying to chew, "Please, I'm not doing any training."
"Oh, yes you are," Logan smirked, smugly. "Lucian's ordered it."
Marie sighed and slightly banged her head on the table, "What is he trying to do, kill me?"
"No, he's trying to protect you," Michael said.
Marie snorted again, "Right, and why would he do that?"
"Because he loves you, idiot," Logan said, simply.
Marie looked up at him. "Please tell me your lying," she said, weakly.
Logan shook his head, "Nope, it's true."
"Why are you so freaked out by that anyways?" Michael asked.
"Because you're not the one who has to choose a mate! You already have Selene! Hell, she's probably knocked up already!"
Michael just sat, his eyes wide and his mouth flapping like a fish.
Marie smirked, putting her hands on her hips, "Never though of that, did ya?"
He just dumbly shook his head.
Logan noisily stood up, causing the two to look at him, "Someday, Marie. Someday you'll have to accept that he loves you."
She laughed, "I know Michael loves me, I'm his cousin."
"I meant Lucian," Logan told her, rolling his eyes.
Marie scoffed, "Whatever."
