I see Scott disappearing, but why? We have a baby. We have a life together. Its what he always wanted. Its what I always wanted. I try not to pry in other people's minds but Scott and I have such a deep connection, his thoughts are impossible to ignore. Why would he do this? Why would he do this to me? Why would he do this to our family? He comes in late at night as I am rocking the baby to sleep. He reeks of her. I can't help entering his mind and seeing what he is thinking about. It is always her. For months now... its been her.

I love Scott. He knew it before I did. Before I was willing to admit it... We have been together since high school. What changed in our relationship that he would do this to me? And now I have to put aside my own marital problems to try and comfort Remy. He lost the love of his life. Rogue is out there somewhere, lost. I fear this isn't Rogue wanting to be alone. She used to run away all the time, but I thought she was past that. Anna at least lets people know where she is going.

I wish I could be of more use. My powers are so frustrating. Sure I can read minds, but how does that help me? It makes my whole life so loud and confusing. Right now I am in the briefing room with two men acting like boys. The sad thing is that I can read both of their minds and see their love for Rogue is so strong.


Life is different now. Peaceful. I never thought my life could be so peaceful. You would think its the calming view of rural Japan that I have become accustomed to, but I know its because of her. Mariko is my true love. We fell in love. We fell in love fast and hard. I never knew an animal like me could feel love or could be lucky enough to find it for that matter. I am finally happy. Everything seems to be perfect, which is never a good sign.
Her velvet voice like a ghost, "Logan?"


"I heard you are getting married."

"Yes, I am."

"Am I invited to the ceremony?"

"Nothing has been planned yet." After just saying how much I love Mariko, Jean calls me. I haven't talked to her in months. I knew Jean was hurting. Scott was straying from her, that dumb bastard. Emma Frost? He couldn't have picked a trashier woman if he tried. In the middle of the night, Jean comes into my room and kisses me out of the blue. I wanted to keep going, but she stopped. I had always had a thing for Jean, but her and One Eye were always there to keep me away. Now I know she felt it too, that sexual tension that was always there... The silent smirks and playful banter. I had always loved her, but she wasn't going to leave Scott and she still won't leave Scott. So I left New York. Ended up in Japan and have been here ever since. I found a job, built a house, and am going to marry a good woman. I'm done with the red head.

"Well, the real reason I am calling – don't be alarmed - Rogue is missing."

"What do you mean she is missing?"

"She is just... gone."

"I don't understand..."

Jean explained the situation. I didn't know what to think. Rogue is like my daughter and if anything were to happen to her... I would not be as calm as I have been. Not even the soothing plains of Japan could keep me from blowing up. She has to be okay. The girl can fend for herself, right?

Damn it.

New York it is.


"What do you mean you don't know where she is!? Anna came back tah New York days ago! You haven't seen her?! What de hell is going on here Jean-"

"Remy, you need to calm down. Yes, I saw her the first day she was in town. I worked with her mind, helped her get rid of the other personalities in her mind to make room for her own. Then she went to visit Bobby and never came back home that night."

"What?! What happened?!" Bobby Drake walked into the briefing room and I immediately wanted to pummel his face in. I lunged at him, but Jean levitated me away. "How could you let something happen to her?!"

"What are you talking about?!"

"You were the last one to see her! What happened!?" I kept to the opposite side of the room, cautiously. I felt like I was in time out.

"Yes, she came to visit me. We hung out for a few hours, but then... we got in a fight and she flew off. I was going to follow her. I drew up an ice slide and tried to catch up, but she was too fast. I waited a day and called her at the mansion but Jean said she never came. Its been two days and she hasn't come back."

"What did you two get in a fight about?"

"It doesn't really matter, does it?"

"Yes, it does matter!"


"Why? Because! Depending on what she was mad about, maybe she just needed some time to think things through... to be alone."

"Wasn't that what she came to New York for in the first place? To get rid of you?" He wasn't asking to clarify. He already knew. Now he was just being insulting and it was pissing me off.

"Iceman you need to get the hell away from me RIGHT NOW BEFORE I KILL YOU!"

"You want a fight? Lets go!"

It wouldn't be too hard to kill him. Gambit has learned a few new tricks and is ready to play dem at anytime, but before I could even think of my first move Jean separated us with her mental powers. "You boys need to remain calm. You fighting is not going to help us find Rogue. Bobby I do think you should leave."

"What?! He should leave! I am the one-"

"Bobby... please."

"FINE!" Bobby left the room in a huff, slamming the door on his way out.

"Jean, what else do you know?"

"Nothing, Remy... I don't know where she could be."

"What about Cerebro?"

"Rogue was a rebellious teenager... I don't know how she did it, but she hacked into Cerebro a while ago which has kept Cerebro from identifying her."

"Damn it Anna."

"I don't know what do or where to start."

"I do. I need the X-Jet."

Chere, where are you?


I woke up in an unknown place. A warehouse of some sort. Not the first time this has happened. But this time, I was stolen. How can anyone steal the Untouchable? Apparently Belladonna Boudreaux who has a new found strength and ability. I was tied to a chair and my powers seemed inactive at the moment otherwise I could burst out of these chains, no problem. Just my luck.

"What do you want Bella?"

"I want revenge. I want to kill you for taking away my happiness." She smiled darkly, revealing snakelike white teeth.


She circled around me, "I have been waiting so long for you to leave Remy's side. Finally you did and now you are mine."

"If you think I am going to go without a fight, you are so wrong." I didn't really want to fight her. I had nothing against her. What happened between her and Remy was so long ago. I know I was in the middle of it, but in the situation I was the one that felt betrayed. She tore us apart. I knew Belladonna was hurt too, but I couldn't feel too bad for her after she lied to Remy about her baby. Wait, I am getting too ahead of myself. She doesn't even have powers!? But how was I shot down? I could drain her in one touch. It'd be that easy. But do I want Bella swimming around in my head? Well, it doesn't look like this is going to end well.

"Oh trust me. I want to fight, but it will be too easy. I am going to win."

"Is that so?"

"I have had a few upgrades so to speak."

"Yes, your boobs do seem a bit bigger!"

"Funny. You always were quite the card."

"Bella, you continue to talk and just you wait. I am going to come at you with full force."

"I am counting on it. I want to fight you. Finally we are evenly matched."

"Why are you doing this?"

"BECAUSE I HATE YOU!" My breath escaped me. The woman in the horrendously sweet Christmas sweater all those years ago had gone completely insane. Maybe it was that sweater that made her snap. "YOU RUINED MY LIFE AND I AM GOING TO RUIN YOURS!" She took in a deep breath, trying to regain her composure. "But first... I am goin' tah make you suffer. You think you are so beautiful, don't you?"

The knife carved into my skin.
