Chapter 32: Revelations Under Insinuations


Approximately 2 hours and 52 minutes ago…

"That's it, I'm getting out of here. I need some goddamn air in this goddamn oppressive place. How in the hell did you people even manage to live down here for so long? I need out. Now."

"Whoa, whoa! Hold on, fella. Y're not goin' nowhere. If de monsieur Jean-Luc catches y' gone, he' sure to mistrust y' even more."

"Jesus. I've been here more than eight solid weeks now. He's learnt to trust me. And I doubt he'll wanna' kill me when he finds out. Why the hell would he go through all the trouble of saving my life only to kill me again? Just chill, alright?"

"… 'Chill'? Do y' jus' realise what y' jus' said? Cannot believe y' of all people are tellin' Remy t' chill."

"I know, it just slipped. Just shut up and don't tell Jean-Luc if you're so bothered, then."

"Excusez moi? It' be all Remy's fault if he finds out, Allerdyce."

"Dammit, I don't care what he does to you! He seems to like you enough anyway. And I'll be back before sundown tomorrow, so it's not like he'll find out."

"Mon Dieu! Do y' know what time it is right now?"

"It's dark. And that's all it needs to be, right?"

"Y' be in deep shit when y' get back, Allerdyce."

"Whatever, LeBeau. I'm leaving."

"Y're hopeless… why does Remy even bot'er wit' you?"

"'Cause you're the one who actually pulled me out from under a flattened building?"


"Am I right or am I right?"

"… Alright, kid. But y' best not talk t' anyone while y're up dere, y'hear?"

"Yeah, yeah, I know the rules; 'no direct contact or parlay with any other human or mutant unless otherwise in a dire situation calling for extreme measures'. I'm not stupid."

"An' stick to de shadows! Don' y' get y'self seen by people, bot' insiders an' outsiders. Remember, we're not supposed t'be in de habit of trustin' y' yet."

"Right, right. But you can make an exception… pfft. If I were JL, I'd question your loyalty. But I'm not JL and I'm benefiting from your act of treason… So…"

"Keep goin' on, kid, an' y' can say bon voyage to y're pretty face."

"Jeez. Alright, alright, no need to threaten me with your blowy-uppy powers. Now excuse me, I need to live a little."


-A/N-: Marvel at this chapter's shortness! Well, that was just something so show you people that I'm not dead. But it was something of an interlude/flashback of our favourite pyromaniac. I know I promised I'd focus on Rogue this chapter, but… Bzuh, I LIED!!! Hah.

If you found this chapter confusing, relax. All will be clearer in due time.
