A/N: One year ago today I posted the first chapter of Tortured Shadows, what a year!
Eight year old Adam Wagner smirked and pulled his twin sister, Sarah, along with him as they played hide and seek with their friends. They were by far, the King and Queen of this game seeing as he had inherited their father's teleportation and Sarah had inherited their mother's phasing.
Sarah giggled and followed her brother quickly, their feet softly padding on the carpet as they ran.
"Gotcha!" Adam gasped at the sudden arrival of Carter Logan, Storm and Wolverine's ten year old son.
"You'll never take us alive!" Sarah proclaimed, pulling her big (by a minute) brother, through a wall, leaving a fuming boy behind.
"Hey no powers!" he called as they disappeared.
The twins giggled and continued running, their identical sapphire blue skin somehow blending into the shadows.
"Nice try kids."
"Aww!" the blue kids turned their big eyes to their 'Uncle' Scott and started to plead wordlessly, Sarah even went as far as to jut out her bottom lip.
Cyclops groaned, "Oh come on! Not only to you have huge eyes, but they have to identical to Kitty's! Typical!"
The twins shared grins; they were winning. Pulling the puppy dog pout always worked, they'd been taught by the best after all.
The twins were almost identical, aside from a few key things. They both had their mother's eyes, while Sarah's were a deep gold and Adam's were a serene aqua. Neither of them had a tail; something Kurt was eternally grateful for as having them with his energy was hard enough to keep up with. They also hadn't inherited his fur, just the deep blue coloring of his skin. They both had tiny fangs, but their ears lacked their father's characteristic point. Their eyes also glowed, but their night sight was only as good as a regular human's.
"Scott, put mah nephew and niece down before I smack ya one."
"Aunty Rogue!" the twins cheered and fled Scott, who just grinned and shook his head as he watched the two topple their Aunt.
"You're finally back!"
"Yeah…hey, where's Unca Evan?" Sarah asked, always the perceptive one.
Adam looked around to see his twin was right, "Yeah, and did you bring us presents?"
"Ooh, presents!" Scott and Jean's daughter, Megan came racing around the corner.
"Did you bring me anything?!" Carter's younger sister, Becky asked, running around the corner to grab Rogue's leg.
The formerly untouchable woman laughed and scooped up the six year old.
"Now who would Evan be if he didn't make sure you munchkins were being spoiled rotten?"
The children cheered and followed Rogue downstairs.
Kurt sighed tiredly and ran a hand through his hair, while shorter than it had been when he was a teenager, he still wore it a bit longer.
"Daddy, will you tuck me in please?" he looked down at his daughter, she clutched her stuffed cat to her chest, her long blue hair pulled back in a French braid thanks to her mother.
"Of course libeling." He picked her up and she settled her head against his shoulder, yawning widely.
"Long day?" he questioned softly. She nodded into his shoulder, her bright eyes sliding closed.
He smiled and he tucked her into the bottom bunk, her brother already fast asleep above her.
"Night Daddy." She mumbled sleepily.
He smiled and kissed her forehead, "Night Sarah."
He stood and looked to the top bunk. His son was curled up, a stuffed wolf clasped in his arms, a present from Uncle Logan and Aunt Ororo.
"Night Adam." He brushed his son's indigo hair from his forehead and brought the blanket up to his shoulders.
He padded to the door, turning back he observed his children with a smile. They had his more 'demon' features, but in his eyes, they looked more like angels. They took after their mother in that way.
"Hey, you coming to bed Fuzzy?" and speaking of which. Kitty's thin arms wound around his stomach.
He chuckled and turned to see her smiling up at him.
"Ja, just tucking them in." she looked around him, unable to look over his shoulder as he'd gotten much taller since they were teens.
She sighed as they closed the door and headed down to their room.
After the X Men had left to go off to college, everyone had thought that that would be the last time anyone of them, saw each other again.
Fate had other plans.
Kurt had gone back to Germany, but had then returned to the states after homesickness started to settle in, and ended up going to the same college as Kitty. Although, they didn't know this until Kitty had learned about her then boyfriend's true colors. She'd ended up running into Kurt in a very…interesting way.
The rest was history.
It was only after they'd started planning their wedding that they ran into the problem of who to invite. The X Men were at the top of the list, and so that was how they learned that Rogue and Evan had been dating for several years, Ororo had knocked some sense into Logan and had married him, and it turned out that Scott and Jean were also engaged.
After both of the weddings, the Professor dropped a bomb on them.
He'd renovated the mansion and where single or double rooms once were, there were now apartments, perfect for families to live in.
Needless to say, where Kurt's room had once been, there was an apartment that was quickly habited by the quickly expanding Wagner family. The same went for Rogue and Kitty's room, Scott's room and Jean's room.
That one level was now a long row of apartments.
So now, years later, everyone was back where they started, only with their own families.
Kurt and Kitty entered their bedroom and Kitty quickly took over the bathroom. Which was fine with Kurt as he changed into a pair of sweatpants and a t-shirt.
Their lives were different now, their families larger.
And they wouldn't change it for the world.
