Author's Note: It was pretty obvious wasn't it. ^_^ I apologize for the delay. It took a good long time to word this properly. You guys have more than earned the effort on my part! Thank you all! Well, you guys already know what's coming, so here you go!

Entry 6: Pardon my French, but I feel like such an ass right now. A complete and total ass. I'm so gonna get a big fat "I told you so" from Jean. Allow me to recount the details...

I needed to find someone to venture into the woods with me. It would be a REALLY bad idea to attempt to subdue a feral Logan alone. Jean, naturally, was my first choice. She could restrain Logan safely, from a distance if need be. Jean, however, didn't agree. "Logan's fine. Leave him alone. If he was up to anything serious, Professor Xavier and I would know." She still thought I was overreacting. Fine. Maybe Ororo would understand. No such luck. Ororo was even more skeptical than Jean! She outright laughed at me! Well...okay, she stifled it, but the intent was there. She told me that I was overreacting, and whatever Logan was doing out there was his own business, and I should just leave him be. Fine. I'll do it myself. If they demanded my horribly mangled corpse as proof, so be it.

And so I set forth into the woods. Alone. In the dark. Oh joy. I've wandered around these woods myself many times, but lit only by moonlight, and with a wild wolverine who could be lurking anywhere, it was hardly recognizable. (Remember the Forbidden Forest from the Harry Potter movies? It looked just like that, minus the giant spiders. But it's a pretty big forest, so you never know...) And quiet! Good Lord, not even the ubiquitous crickets. I crept through that forest as slowly and quietly as humanly possible for what must have been half an hour. Still didn't hear a thing. Finally, I heard a trace of a voice coming from the clearing just ahead. A female voice. Oh good God what was Rogue doing out here? A student's life was at stake now. Throwing caution to the wind, I charged into the clearing, hand on my visor, ready to blast Logan into next year. I nearly jumped out of my skin when he jumped out of a tree behind me. "Just HAD to come snooping around, didn'tcha Scooter?" Logan sounded severely annoyed, but not homicidal. "Fine. Just please keep it to yourself. It'll be finished in a couple of days. Gotta give the paint time to dry." It? What was he talking about? Then I turned and looked around the clearing. "It" was by far the biggest, most elaborate treehouse I've ever seen. The house itself was huge, built around the three trees in the middle of the clearing. Rogue was up there, painting the balcony in a cedar stain. Looked great with the deep green of the house. I must admit, Logan has decent taste in color. She looked down at me with big puppy-dog eyes, covered in paint, and begged me to keep Logan's secret. "Please Mr. Summers, don't tell anyone. It's a surprise for the kids!" Man, the kids were in for a treat. This place had everything! A lookout tower, fire pole, rope bridges leading to concealed platforms in other trees. So that's where all the rope went. Logan informed me those were sniper platforms for water balloon/snowball fights. He's even installing a pulley system to haul water balloons/snowballs up to the treehouse. I was absolutely speechless. I can't believe it. The big hairy jerk got me all paranoid over a treehouse. A treehouse!! A treehouse that he built for the kids to play in. Jean's never gonna let me live this down...

The End

Author's Comments: I'm buying a new computer in 6 weeks or so, and then I'm gonna pick up a REAL word processor. Then I'll fix the formatting and probably repost it as one single chapter. Thank you guys soooo much for reading this! And liking it!! I can't begin to tell you what your reviews have meant to me. I may yet attempt to deal with the other rabid plot bunny, but I'm rather hesitant about that. First, the stupid thing keeps mutating on me! Second, I may have to borrow another author's character (with permission of course!), and I know I could never do him justice. Third, it's an X-Men/Harry Potter crossover which will instantly turn a LOT of people off. On the other hand, I can't possibly be the only one who would like to see Logan meet a Dementor. :)
