A/N: This idea has been bouncing around in my head. It's going to be Rogue/Wolverine so if you don't like please don't read and if you read don't flame about the pairing. I love love love reviews and it makes me a happy writer. So if you like this, tell me please.
Many massacres have happened when people yell "surprise"! Pearl Harbor. The Tet Offensive. Logan's "birthday" party.
The whole plan started with Jubilee mentioning that Logan had been with the X-Men for 6 years and hadn't run away. Six years had passed without celebrating this amazing feat or his birthday, not that any of us knew when that was. I don't think he knew when it was actually. So Jubilee decided that we would decide when Logan's birthday was and we would throw a big surprise party for him.
"Uh Jubs do you think that's a good idea? I mean throwing a surprise party for the Wolverine could end in disaster." I asked.
"No way chica, it'll be totally awesome. We'll do it a week from today. So Rogue it will be your job to keep, big, bad and hairy occupied for the week and away from the mansion during the day."
"Why my job? Can't you or Kitty do it?" I asked exasperated.
"No way am I going to try and distract the Wolverine. Besides he doesn't like me the way he likes you." Kitty said holding her hands up.
"And I'm the best party planner there is, so I can't do it." Jubilee pointed out.
"Lovely, fantastic, and wonderful! So I have to spend the next week keep Logan occupied and away from everything in the mansion. That's going to look really suspicious to him, just to let you know." I muttered. Trying to get Logan to do anything when he was suspicious was almost impossible, he would want to know why all of a sudden I wanted to hang out with him all the time, or why I was sending him on so many errands. I mean I could fake having my period; I was always clingy and needy around that time. Then again I think Logan would be able to tell, his sense of smell was amazing. Well I would figure something out eventually. Jubilee was still going on about her plans when I decided it was time for me to go find Logan and begin this whole charade. Don't get me wrong I love spending time with Logan but sometimes he doesn't want to spend time with me. He's extremely independent and doesn't like it when I cling. I really wonder what lie I could come up with. Maybe Bobby would have a good idea to help me. He was a pretty smart guy, a really good boyfriend and always willing to help me when I needed it. Walking down the hall I stopped in front of Bobby's room and raised my hand to knock when I heard a strange noise. I paused for a moment and listened a little harder and more carefully, there it was again, it was a moan. Oh god what if something's wrong with Bobby, I have to help him. Reaching forward I flung the door open, "Bobby are you okay?" The sight that greeted me was not something I would have expected to ever see. Bobby was in bed with Warren and well let's just say, Warren was a pitcher and Bobby was a catcher.
"Rogue it's not what it looks like!" Bobby exclaimed pushing Warren off of him.
"How could you Bobby? I mean I have no problem with you being gay but you could have told me and ended it before you fooled around with someone else!"
"Wait, you didn't break up with her? You told me, you told her about this, us." Warren said moving off the bed. I felt tears building up behind my closed eyelids, the salt stung and I knew if I didn't move I would lose it. Turning on my heel I ran down the hallway, down the stairs and out the front door and right into the chest of the last person I wanted to deal with right now.
"Darling, what's wrong?" Logan asked looking at me.
"Nothing, absolutely nothing is wrong Logan. I am perfectly fine." I said sniffling.
"Uh huh, you're lying to me Marie and I don't like it." Logan growled. I stared at Logan for a long moment and then it dawned on me, I could use this Bobby thing to distract Logan for the week. He would understand that I wouldn't want to be around the mansion and I could claim that he was the only one I wanted to deal with. I sniffled again and wiped my eyes, "Bobby cheated on me." I said rather plainly. Logan's face turned red and he began growling, "I'll kill that little shit for hurting you like that Marie. Cheating on you with some other girl."
''It wasn't a girl Logan. Apparently Bobby is gay and couldn't bring himself to tell me."
Logan flushed a little and stammered out, "Well I don't know what to tell you kid."
"I just don't want to be around anyone right now, I think staying away for a while might help me get over it. I can't be angry that he's gay but that doesn't stop it from hurting." I mumbled against Logan's chest.
"'Course kid, I get it. How about me and you get away for some time. We can head to my cabin and just spend some time away. "
"That would be perfect Logan."
"Alright kid, go pack and I'll tell Chuck what's going on."
I smiled at Logan and hugged him; this was working out better than I thought. I could keep him away for a whole week and then come back and BAM there would be his party. I had to tell Jubilee about it, she would be ecstatic about this plan. I really did need the week away anyway, it would be a nice way to kick off the summer and it's not like I had to be there to teach classes or anything, all the kids were either gone or doing something else. I walked towards Jubilee's room and knocked on the door.
"Hey Jubs I got some great news you need to hear!"
"What's up Chica?"
"Logan's agreed to take me to the cabin for the week."
"Wow! How'd you get him to agree to that?"
"Long story but just to let you know Bobby's gay apparently."
Jubilee looked at me strangely for a minute, "Uh yeah, we all knew that. We were kind of wondering why you were still with him actually."
"Are you freaking kidding me? I had no idea he was gay. Why didn't you tell me?"
"We thought it was pretty obvious. We figured you knew and were helping him out or something." Kitty chimed from Jubilee's bed.
"Oh, well it's the reason Logan agreed to take me away for the week. So you don't have to worry about him being around at all this week."
"Perfect, that makes everything so much easier."
I smiled at the two girls and made a hand motion that meant I had to get going. I still need to pack and make sure Logan still stuck to his promise, not that he would ever do something like that to me. I finished packing my bag when a knock came from my door, figuring it was Logan I yelled for them to come in. Much to my surprise it was Bobby who stepped into my room.
"Hey Rogue. I wanted to talk to you and explain."
"Look Bobby, its cool, I'm still pissed you didn't tell me and it's gonna take some time for me to get over you lying to me. You can't help being gay anymore then you can help being a mutant. I understand that but you didn't have to lie to me or run around behind my back. If you wanted to be with someone else you could have just told me. It's not like I would have freaked out over it. Maybe been a little sad it took you so long to tell me but it's not like you chose to be gay."
Bobby ran his hand through his hair and looked me in the eye, "Look I do care for you and I'm sorry you found out the way you did. It was shitty of me and I understand if you don't want to talk to me anymore."
"Naw, don't worry about it. I'm gonna take a week away and when I come back we'll work it out. Look don't stress about it, go find Warren and spend some time with him."
"Actually he's outside, he wanted to say sorry as well."
Warren's head popped around my door when Bobby said this and he looked me in the eyes as he stepped into my room.
"Look Rogue, I'm sorry you found out this way. Bobby told me he had told you about us, and you were cool with it."
"It's okay Warren, like I was telling Bobby, I get it. I'm just in shock. I'm going away for a week and when I come back we'll all go out or something. It's gonna be okay guys." I gave them a lopsided smile. Warren smiled and pulled me into a tight hug, "Thank you so much for understanding. We get you need sometime, so you enjoy your week and we will do something when you come back."
I smiled as Warren and Bobby left my room, I was glad everything was okay. In all honesty I meant what I said. I was okay with it, I couldn't blame them for being a certain way, it would hypocritical of me. I turned and grabbed my bag and walked down the stairs to see Logan waiting for me. This week was going to be really fun.
