Chapter 17

After killing Sabertooth Rogue climbed off the roof and headed to the warehouse where she had left Logan and Remy. When she returned she was relieved to see that Logan was up and moving that Remy was starting to regain consciousness. "How's he doing?" Rogue asked Logan as she walked towards them.

"He's been better but he'll live. What happened?"

Rogue explained what happened and told Logan where they could find the body. Logan grunted before turning to look more carefully at the bruises and contusions on Remy. He was in the process of making sure nothing was broken when Remy woke up. "What did I miss?" Remy murmured as he struggled to sit up.

"The wall fell on you." Rogue told him as she knelt down next to him. "How are you feeling?"

"I've been better," he replied. When he was finally in an upright position he looked around at the destruction the four had caused. "Where is the overgrown pussy cat?"

"Rogue took care of him after the wall fell on us." Logan butted in. "Rogue, I understand why you did what you did and believe me when I say that I would have done the same thing. Unfortunately most of the department heard the discussion between us and Betsy so if you were to show up in town again I would have to arrest you." Rogue looked a little sad at the thought of having to go to jail but understood where Logan was coming from. She nodded her head in understanding. Before she could say anything Logan held up a hand silencing her. "I know someone in Australia that will be able to keep you safe. I don't want to see you locked up for what this jerk forced you to do."

Rogue and Remy both looked a little surprised at what Logan was telling Rogue. "Ya mean leave the country?" Rogue asked with surprise. "What about my family and friends?"

"We will tell your mother and brother what happened and I will give you time to stop by and talk to Kitty before you leave." Rogue couldn't believe what was happening. Shaking her head in disbelief she turned towards the door and started to leave.

Seeing that she was in a daze Remy followed her out to the car. Remy ran up to Rogue as she started walking to where she parked her car. Grabbing her arm he pulled her around to where she was looking at him. "Chere, are you really leaving?" Remy asked.

Rogue shook her head. "Ah don't know. Ah don't want to go to jail but ah also don't want to leave my family and friends." Looking around to make sure Logan wasn't watching she turned towards Remy. "Ah don't want to leave you either. We just sorta got together and ah really wanted to see where this would go." Rogue trailed off with a shrug of her shoulders.

Remy stood there looking at her for a while before walking with her to her car. Bending down he placed a soft kiss on her lips. "Remy has some stuff to take care of here. I'll meet you at your place in an hour and a half." Rogue nodded before starting the car and driving away. Turning around Remy headed back to get the squad car he and Logan had arrived in.

"What is going on between you and Rogue?" Logan asked Remy when he got back.

"I'm not really sure, mon ami." Remy answered truthfully. "I'm going to meet up wit her later and hopefully by dat time I'll have an answer to dat question." Without saying another word Remy climbed into the car and waited for Logan before turning around and driving to the station house. On the way there they agreed they would let everyone think that they were too late to stop Rogue from killing Sabertooth.


Rogue got back to her and Kitty's apartment at about the same time as Kitty. Rogue walked in the front door and flopped down on a couch. Seeing the outfit that Rogue was wearing as well as the smattering of blood on her hands and arms Kitty came running towards her roommate. "Rogue what happened?" Kitty exclaimed stopping just short of wrapping her arms around her.

"Ah took care of our little problem. Sabertooth won't be bothering anyone ever again."

Kitty looked confused for a second before comprehension dawned. "What happened?" She asked once again.

Rogue took a deep breath and then launched into the story. Kitty listened carefully and looked surprised at the end when Rogue told her about Logan suggesting that she leave the country. "What are you going to do?"

Rogue shrugged. "Ah don't want to leave my home but at the same time ah don't want to go to jail. It's dangerous for a cop to be thrown into jail."

Kitty looked sad for a moment and then decided something. "You are going to go stay with Logan's friend for a while. There is no way that I am letting you get thrown into jail when you were doing the world a favor by getting rid of that awful man."

Rogue looked at her friend for a second before agreeing with her. "You're right. Ah won't be gone forever and Logan agreed to fill Mama and Kurt in on what happened." She gave Kitty a quick hug before hurrying down the hall to the bathroom. "Ah suppose ah should pack." Once she had washed all the blood off of her she headed to her room to pack. She was surprised to see Kitty already at work.

"I thought that I would, like, help you pack." Stopping she turned to look at Rogue. Launching herself into Rogue's arms she broke down in tears. "I'm really going to miss you. I wish that I could go with you but that would look suspicious and I don't want to leave Piotr." Kitty would have kept rambling if the doorbell hadn't rung at that moment.

Rogue looked at the clock and knew that it shouldn't be Remy already since he still had a half hour before he was supposed to meet her. "Kitty can you go see who is at the door?" Nodding mutely Kitty slowly made her way to the door.

Peering through the peephole she saw Remy standing on the other side of the door. Calling out to Rogue who it was she opened the door and ushered him inside. "Like, what are you doing here?"

"Remy came to see mon chere." He replied as he looked around for her. Part of him was worried that she had decided not to wait for him and had left already.

"She's in her bedroom packing." Kitty showed him the way and then headed back out to the living room to give them a little privacy.

"Ah wasn't expecting you yet." Rogue said as she picked up packing where Kitty had left off. She wasn't going to try to take everything but she wanted to make sure that she had all her important and sentimental items.

Remy walked up behind her and wrapped his arms around her waist. "Remy couldn't wait to see you again. What have you decided?" He questioned even though he could tell by the packing she was doing.

"Ah'm going to go to see Logan's friend. Did he send anymore information with you?"

"Oui. He sent you the tickets he arranged. Said dat his friend would meet you at the airport when you landed." Rogue nodded mutely. She was trying not to cry at the prospect of leaving Remy just when things were starting between them.

"Remy, ah should probably finish packing." Rogue said. She was trying to get him to hurry through the good-byes so that it wouldn't be any harder on her then it already was.

"I'll help." Remy said. He was trying to figure out what he wanted to say to her but couldn't really think of anything. Frustrated with the whole situation he grabbed her arm and spun her around. She was about to protest when he pressed his lips to hers. When he pulled back he knew that he had found his answer. "Remy's coming wit you," he whispered against her hair.

Rogue pulled back to look at him. "You can't do that. Ya're whole family is here. Not to mention your career." She couldn't ask him to give up everything and just take off with her no matter how much she wanted to.

"I've made up my mind. I'll call and let Logan know when we get to the airport. Now, let's get you packed so I can go get my stuff." Rogue smiled at Remy before turning to grab her passport.

"Ah think that ah have everything ah need. How long do you need to pack?"

"About 15 minutes. Remy just has to throw a few things in a bag." Rogue nodded and headed out to say her final good-bye to Kitty.

"If you want to get in touch with me talk to Logan and he should be able to get us connected." Rogue said as she tried not to cry. She knew that she probably shouldn't but she planned on stopping by her mom's house to say good-bye to her and Kurt.

Kitty wasn't trying to stop the tears as she said good-bye to Rogue. "Take care of yourself. I'll try to find a reason to come out there on vacation sometime. Maybe Raven and Kurt could come as well." Rogue nodded and gave her friend one last teary hug before walking out the door with Remy.


That is the end of this story. I'm planning a sequel that will include Pyro and Wanda. Let me know what you thought.
