Disclaimer: Blabbidy, blah blah. That means I don't own the X Men in hyper-land.

A/N: Basically, I'm in a good mood, needed something to do, and decided "Eh, screw it, new story up early!"

And you get this update.

Don't worry; I'm still updating 'Blue' on the 28. You get two updates this week, yay for you!

Takes place after Cruise Control, and maybe X -23.

Kitty wished she'd never opened the door. It wouldn't have made a difference who opened it, but she wished it hadn't been her.

The doorbell had rang, which was strange after all the bad publicity they'd been getting after the sentinel attack, but she'd gone to open it anyway.

Standing in the doorway had been two men, both in black suits and reminding her of the Men in Black seeing as they'd just watched the movie the night before.

"Can I help you?" she asked.

"We're looking for Kurt Wagner." The taller of the two men stated.

"Why?" she questioned.

"That's none of your business miss."

"What's going on here?" Logan came into the room.

The men had repeated their reason for being there and Logan reluctantly brought them inside and took them up to the Professor's study.

Of course Kitty had snuck after them and pressed her ear against the door, struggling to hear the conversation.

Only a few minutes had passed before the door slammed open, causing her to jump back, and Kurt ran past her, darting down the hall as fast as his feet could carry him.

She hadn't wasted five seconds in following after him. Eventually, that led her to the bathroom. She could hear someone sobbing on the other side and phased through to see Kurt slumped against the wall, hugging his knees and struggling to breathe.

She fell to her knees beside him and hugged him tightly, trying to get him to actually breathe.

"What's going on?" she whispered.

"Th-they're…they're sending me back to Germany." He whimpered, grabbing the back of her shirt in a death grip, like she was the one thing holding him in place.

"What?" she asked in disbelief.

"I'm being deported."

Kurt felt like he was going to be sick as he clung to Kitty. His world was spinning and his ears were ringing.

"I don't vant to go back." He whispered, "Not forever. I don't vant to leave."

Kitty only held him tighter, "We'll…we'll figure something out Kurt. We'll make this better; we'll fix it."

He tried to take a breath, but it got caught in his throat, making his chest tight as he started to panic.

"I don't vant to go." He whimpered.

Kitty softly shushed him, stroking his back and hair as she held him close.

"Close your eyes Kurt. Relax okay?"

He did so, trying to focus on her voice only, but failing as the men's world rang through his mind over and over.

"Due to Mr. Wagner's…questionable safety to the United States of America, we give him two weeks to vacate the country. He must be back in Germany by the twenty first."

It had been at that point that he'd left, barely catching sight of the people he ran past.

"We'll make this better." Kitty whispered again.

Kurt only wished it were possible.

Kitty stared up at her ceiling, the glowing red numbers on her alarm clock reading 1:03 a.m.

She sighed and rolled over onto her side.

~How do we keep him here? ~ She wondered. There was no way she was losing Kurt, no flipping way in hell!

~They wouldn't be able to do anything if Kurt had equal citizenship. ~

Her eyes snapped open; ~Oh my God…I could…no wait, that's impossible! Gah, but it'll keep him here!...I have to keep him here. ~

"WHAT?!" Logan yelled.

"Are you insane?!" the Professor, Hank and Ororo were also staring at her like she was crazy.

"It would let him stay here!" Kitty replied.

"Kitty, honey, have you thought this out? I mean, do you know what it would mean for you?" Ororo tried to reason.

Kitty took a breath, "Yeah, I thought about it. I thought long and hard and you know what? I can't lose him." She finished, her eyes starting to tear up at the thought.

The Professor sighed, putting his fingers together as he bowed his head, "Very well Kitty, if you're sure. We'll let you speak to Kurt."

Shadowcat smiled, "Thank you Professor."

As she left, Logan turned to Charles with a disbelieving look, "You're seriously gonna let them go through with this?"

He nodded, "I believe…that something else is working here. Maybe fate or maybe something entirely different. Something made Kitty think of this. No matter how crazy it may be, I don't want Kurt going back to Germany. No one does."

Logan sighed and nodded; thanking God he'd gotten equal citizenship for both Canada and America years ago.

"I hope you're right Chuck. I really hope you're right."

Kurt swallowed again as he struggled to keep himself from panicking again.

His salvation came in the form of a knock on his door.

"Come in!" he managed to call. Seconds later, Kitty phased through the door and walked over to him.

"I found a way to keep you here, and it's legal."

He sat up, hope shining in his eyes, "Really?"

She nodded and sat down in front of him, now looking extremely nervous, "But…you might not like it."

He cocked an eyebrow, "Vhat is it Katzchen?"

She looked up, catching his eyes with hers, "Marry me."
