He couldn't figure out why he was there...

John had finally admitted, to himself, that he had feelings for her, yet he couldn't figure out why. He was a rebel without a cause and she was Ms. Goody-two-shoes, he thought they were polar opposites. So, after a large internal battle, he had finally decided he was going to go to her room and talk to her just to figure out what about her intrigued him, so much.

So there he was just waiting for the right moment…

Kitty was bored, well actually that was an understatement. Sure, Kitty loved her roommate, but Jubilee could talk someone's ear off and today Kitty was her target. Jubilee was normally talking to Bobby, but ever since Rogue had shown up he had pretty much blown everyone off –even John- Kitty thought to herself. Lately, she had noticed, she was thinking about John more and more and for the life of her she couldn't figure out why.

She was half paying attention to her roommate but her mind kept wandering…

John was thinking about Kitty replaying all their different conversations –there aren't many- he mused to himself. After a while of thinking reality finally set in that he liked her, because of exactly that, she was her. She was quiet, and shy; while he was outgoing, and cocky. She tamed his bad boy –most of the time- and he brought out the bad in her. No one knew much about Kitty, because she was so quiet; but he did only after having a couple of conversations with her, he realized he knew more about her than probably her best friend.

She was thinking about him again…

Kitty was so deep in thought trying to figure out what about him that she liked. She thought he was bad and crazy, and even every now and then hopeless; but she never gave up hope on him. She thought that somewhere under that bad boy motif was something good maybe even nice. She was right, one day she had been running to try and hide from Bobby and his water gun; she was phasing through rooms because they were empty or at least were supposed to be; she was fine until she made it to John's room. She had phased through the wall and scared the crap out of them both; John was laying on his bed writing in his notebook and when she walked through the wall he jumped and a few curse words were heard coming from that room. After they both calmed down and Kitty had explained what had happened he let her stay there to hide out. They talked about lots of things and she finally realized he wasn't as bad as everyone thought.

He was musing over the day she phased through his wall and right into his life…But then reality set in and he knew what it was…

He loved her and he always will

Finally she realized what it was…

She loved him and she always will
