A/N: I can't tell if I got her accent right or completely over did it. Um… help?

Another One-Sided!RoguexScott 'cause they're easily my OTP for this fandom, no doubt. Introspective.

I Don't Wanna Be In Love

It's worse 'cause I see him at e'ery corner, e'ery day. I can't avoid him, which makes the feelin's so much harder to cope with. I can't roll over and forget about him 'cause it'll be the next morning and he'll walk into the kitchen for breakfast and my heart'll start thunderin' in my chest.

I can't stop it.

Should I love him? Hell no. Do I love him? Hell yeah.

With everythin' I got, I want to forget about him and move on with my life. I need to wake up and realize that I can't fall in love 'cause it'll never work and Scott's just step one in what's gonna be a long life of breakin' my own heart over and over again. He's the first straw. If I can get over him, maybe it's possible to never love again.

'cause I don't wanna be in love.

Especially not with Scott.

He's got his life goin' for him, leading the X-Men, workin' on sortin' out things with his brother, datin' Jean... He's doin' just fine without me, and he'll always be doin' just fine without me. Scott don't need me wreckin' his life. My feelin's ain't important enough for him. For anyone.

The first step is the hardest, and with all things, it's admittin' you have a problem. I have a problem. I'm in love with Scott Summers. And I can't be in love with Scott Summers.

Maybe if I weren't me, I could take my shot and maybe even rise above Jean, be someone better than her, someone who he doesn't have to worship e'ery second of e'ery day like some sort of goddess. If I weren't dangerous and if I weren't shy, I could probably have Scott to myself.

But I'm dangerous. One touch could put him in a coma.

And I'm shy. I'd be too scared to say anythin'.

I don't wanna be in love. I don't wanna love him.

He's happy, and I don't wanna ruin that 'cause I ain't worth it for him. I won't speak up 'cause Jean and I already pretty much hate each other. It's an unsaid rule that Scott is off-limits for me, but I still wanna think that I stand some sorta chance. But I don't. And I know it.

It's 'cause I'm exactly what he doesn't need. I have issues with my powers. I'm untouchable. I'm dangerous. He can't be worryin' about me. At least Jean can hold her own. He doesn't have to look over his shoulder e'ery ten seconds for her. She's perfect. She can take care of herself.

For me, one too many voices in my head and everythin' goes to the brink of insanity.

I can't love him. It would never work. So I gotta get my head outta the clouds and remember that reality ain't gonna turn into a fairytale anytime soon. I gotta keep in mind that Scott and I won't happen.

And I don't wanna be in love. Ever again.

It'd never work.


A/N: Review? And comments on the accent would be great, thanks…
