I never remembered hitting the ground. But I think that would be for the best. But I only remember glimpses of things. Wolverine with blood on his hands. The inside of the x-jet. My head in Laura's lap. She had tears in her eyes. She was running a hand through my hair. I heard her whisper to me that everything would be all right. But then I felt funny, I coughed up blood. It splattered on her face, and to even know she was deathly scared and covered in my blood she looked beautiful. She yelled to wolverine something. I felt the x-jet land. Tears were starting to fall. And then my vision was getting fuzzy. I lifted an arm and caressed her check with my hand. With my thumb I swept away the blood and tears, but that only seemed to smear it even more. And then I was lifted by Wolverine. The darkness. Then I was on a gurney, Beast on one side. Jean on the other. They were rushing me somewhere. To surgery probably. Then darkness again. The only thing I heard last as a blood curdling scream.


The next I woke up I was in pain. Not as much as before but it was still pain. But then I remembered. I was stabbed in the gut by the girl I kissed. Fell of the Empire state. And I couldn't concentrate long enough to heal. But I should try that and now.

Focus! Come on healing-Factor come on!

It took awhile but the pain started to slowly ease away. I opened my eyes. It was still complete darkness. I reached one of my hands to my eyes and felt a cloth.

Well duh I'm blindfolded.

I took it off. I was awarded with bright light and a sharp pain. But then that faded to see that I was in the X-mansions infirmary. And I seemed to be the only one here.

Well the infirmary is only for sick people. And now that I'm back to top form I should get out of here.

I removed the covers of me. I shifted to my bare feet met cold linoleum floor. To the left of the bed was a dresser. I opened it to find clothes for me. A black pair of jeans, sock's, a black tee with a red on the chest, and my pair of chuck Taylors.

I left to find out I was in the sub-basement base. I followed the corridor to the stairs and climbed them. Once out the passage from under the grand staircase I found out I was nighttime already. That would mean everybody would probably asleep.

Wonder where I could find Laura?

Then I felt someone trying to gain access my mind. It was most likely the professor so I let them in.

Mr. grant I would try the roof. Miss Kinney seems to spend a lot of time there. And if not there I would try your room.

Why my room Professor?

She had said something about your scent. That it calms her.

Okay. Goodnight Professor.

And to you Mr. Grant.

I made my way the front door. Once on the grounds I took my shirt off. Not wanting to rip it for when I opened my wings.

I opened my wings and flew into the air. I kept on rising and rising. Enjoying the night air on my skin. It took awhile till I remembered what I was out here for. So I lowered my altitude to the schools roof. I landed. I walked around on the rooftop. It seemed quiet and empty. I decided to leave and check my room. So I retraced my steps from the roof of the main lobby and traced my room. I used kitty's power to phase and land in my room.

I looked around. My room seemed messier than before. I thought it was all me before I saw Laura fast asleep on my bed. Most of my shirts were strewn about her. And she was even wearing my favorite shirt. It was a concert shirt that I had picked up about a year after I moved into the institute. It was from a screamo band that I liked. The Red Jumpsuit Apparatus. As I walked closer to the bed I found out she wasn't asleep yet. She was silently crying. It was a sound I never wanted to hear.

I walked closer and saw her moving. I looked closer and saw her do something I never thought I'd see a person ever do.

She was cutting herself.

I had heard of self-mutilation before but I'd never thought I'd see someone do it right before my eyes.

Laura what in the world are you doing! I sent that to her.

I saw her body stiffen. She lashed out at me. I was now fully awake. She kept on coming and coming. She was in tears the whole time.

"Laura. It's me! It's Alex! Why are you doing this?"

"Dammit Emma get out of my head!" she cried out.

"Laura it's not Emma! It's me Alex! I told you that you were beautiful. And trust me you still are!"

She sent a bladed kick towards me. I quickly dodged. She kept on coming and coming and she repeated

"Get the hell out of my head Emma!"

She sent another bladed kick. This time it cut me from my upper thigh on my left leg to my left shoulder.

I collapsed onto all fours. I concentrated. In seconds the cut was nothing but smooth skin.

I heard movement. I immediately held her against the wall with telekinesis.

"Dammit Emma! Just leave me alone!" she whined.

Then she just broke down crying. It was the most horrible sound it broke my heart. I moved closer to her but I held her to the wall in fear of her attacking me.

Once close enough I hugged her. I let go of the telekinesis. She clung onto me. In her ear I spoke.

"Will you give me a chance to prove I'm Alex?"

"Shut up Emma." She murmured.

I teleported to the roof. I opened my wings and jumped into the air.

Laura clung onto me even tighter.

"I'm pretty sure that Emma can't fly teleport, shoot concussive blast or any other things."

If it was possible Laura held onto me tighter

"Oh Alex. It is you. I'm so sorry." She gasped.

"It's alright I understand. But what's with you and Frost."

I heard her give a little growl. From her it sounded cute. Boy do I Lo-Like her.

"Since the day I came here she's been a complete bitch."

That quickly reminded me of something.

"Laura a quick change of subject but, how long have I been out?"

"About a month. Every day since you were in a coma I visited you. It was hell just watching you lay there on that bed. We thought you were going to die until we brought in a new mutant. His name was like Elixir or something. He said he could fix you."

"Fix me?"

"During your coma you were un-responsive to everything. I even tried to help. The Professor had learned some stuff about our power while you. The professor said the extreme pain caused a complete system crash. The only thing that kept you alive was Logan's healing factor." She looked away in the distance. Then she gasped.


"Very high up. Please let's get down."

I looked around and as I knew it we were very high up. I decided to fly down onto the roof. Once we sat next to each other I slipped an arm around her shoulders. She then lay down onto me, her head on my chest.

"Continue" I said.

"The Professor learned something knew about your mimicry. A first as he said. He had said that by fighting you keep aware on everything you do. Defense and Offense. And you adapt very easily in a fight. That's why I let you win during our fight."

I could practically hear her grin.

"Oh so you let me win?" I said. A grin starting to crawl up on my face.

"Yes I let you win."

I could hear her grin getting bigger.

"Okay tell me the truth; were you just toying with me? Back in the ally were you holding back?"



"Liar. You were holding back!"

She giggled into my chest.

"I had hoped you wouldn't smell that one."

"Smell that one?"

She chuckled into my chest.

"It's part of your heightened senses. A person's smell smell's different when they lie."

"Ooooooohhhh. Cool, I guess. But to me you smell like."

I took a whiff of the air. Peppermint.

"Peppermint?" I questioned.

"I think that might be from you. I am wearing your shirt."

Then I remembered what we were talking about.

"So how did elixir fix me?"

"Oh back to that? Okay. Elixir said he could heal anybody he touched. So he thought he'd try it on you. He tried once but you were still un responsive. He tried and tried. And then finally a few days ago it started to work. And then here you are now. Healthy as ever."

I had thought for awhile. I was thinking that I need to talk with the professor about my powers. And how they went berserk after that little stab. But I was brought back to reality by Laura.

"Alex? You alright."

"Yeah, I also wanted to ask you why you thought I was Emma Frost."

She did another cute growl

"Emma was mad that you were brought back on the verge of death. When she knew that I did it she messed with me a lot. Most of my nights here I would have nightmare's. She planted them there. And she would make it hell by showing me your death, show you….."

She just left off there. I felt her shudder.

"I understand. You don't have to keep going I'll end it here."

We lay in silence. Then I thought of something.

"Have you ever listened to Seether?"

She raised her head to me. She gave me a look that I had just fallen from the empire state….. Oh never mind.

"What is Seether?"

"Seether, it's a music group, they make music."

"Oh. Well no I haven't listened to Seether. Are they good?"

"Well to me they're the best but I think you might like them."

"May I listen to them?"

"Sure, let's get back to my room and I'll show you their C.D"

She stood and dusted off her jeans; I got up and did the same. Then I offered her my hand.

"Follow me."

She held on and then I teleported.

I quickly looked around my room for my C.D rack. After I found it I picked out one of my mixed Seether . I popped it into the c.d player.

"Listen Laura you might like it."

One song started to play. So I plopped down onto my bed. Laura also decided to plop down onto me.

I wanted you to know that I live the way you laugh

I wanna hold you high and steal your pain away

I keep your photograph and I know it serves me well

I wanna hold you high and steel your pain

Then a women's voice joins a man

'Cause I'm broken when I'm lonesome

And I don't feel right when you're gone away

You've gone away; you don't feel me here anymore

Then it was just the woman's voice.

The worst is over now and we can breathe again

I wanna hold you high, you steal my pain away

There's so much left to learn and no one left to fight

I wanna hold you high and steal your pain away

Then once again both man and woman

Cause I'm broken when I' open

And I don't feel like I am strong enough

Cause I'm broken when I'm lonesome

And I don't feel right when you're gone away

A Cool Solo

Cause I'm broken when I'm lonesome

And I don't feel right when you're gone away

You've gone away

You don't feel me anymore.

Then the song ended. I was waiting for Laura's response on how she liked Seether but then I heard a snoring noise. I look down to see that she's fast asleep. I look to my right, on the table next to my bed theirs an alarm clock; it reads 1:23 A.M.

So I decided to get some shut eye as well. Enjoying the sensation of falling asleep with someone I Lov-Like.


Me: I hoped you liked this chapter and will R&R.

Alex: And sorry for the long wait. Both me and Vex here had to do some geek research on mimicry powers to do my profile on chapter 3.

Laura: And don't worry about these two Nerds, I'll make sure next time they update they get facts straight. Thank you AfterFake13 for giving me a reason to teach these Nerds something

I Point to Alex

Me: Ha your Girlfriend just called you a Nerd!

Alex smack my hand away and rub's his temples

Alex: Yes but you do know her way of teaching means.

Vex put on his thinking pose he then looked worried.

Me: Oh Crap!

Alex: That's one way of stating it. Here

Alex put his hand onto my shoulder theirs a flash of blue.

Me: what was that?

Alex: Healing Factor. We'll need it.

Laura sneaks up behind us and slams our heads together

Laura: And don't forget the Grammar

Me: Ouch Dammit it's not my fault I'm getting a C in language Arts

Alex: Dammit Babe, I'm only getting a high D.

Both Alex and Vex: We're screwed.

Me: oh and Seether doesn't belong to me. I just thought "Broken" would be a good song for thin type of story. And if anybody has any Idea's or suggestions please leave it in a review or PM me Bye Bye

Laura sneaks behind me and gives me a noogie

Laura: See ya

Alex just stands in the corner rubbing his temples

Alex: Babe please don't kill my best friend.

He turns to the audience

Alex: Hopefully next time we'll see you. If Laura doesn't kill Vex.
