We grab our clothes and get dressed she looks at me and holds out her hand "what" "you won so you can find out what my power does to people who touch my skin." I smile at her as she sits down on the grass and opens the bag of chips. I watch as she pops 3 chips in her mouth and then looks up at me with an odd look on her face. I take a swig of beer while I sit down next to her. "What's a matter Rogue can't handle the heat?" I pass the beer bottle to her and as I do so she smiles and takes a big drink.
"Thanks" she sets it down on the grass "I can handle the heat fire boy but you still haven't touched my hand I think you're scared to see what my power will do to you." "Hey I may be a jerk, lazy at cooking, cleaning and I may think going to class is a waste of time but I'm not scared of anything." With those words I take hold of her right hand and at fist nothing happens I notice her hands feel as they look soft and smooth. After a few minutes pass my hand feels like tiny pins and needles are being stuck in it and moving up my whole body slowly pulling my energy from me. I let go of her hand and still feel the pins and needles over my whole body.
"I'm sorry Pyro, I'm so sorry… are you alright should I get help?" "Will you shut up…Rogue I'm fine look at me do I look like I need help. And that was…wow" "wow." "Yeah it was like a rush… so tell me was it as good for you as it was me." She slips her gloves back on and then punches me in the arm as hard as she can. "Hey it was a simple question." "Think it's time we head back" we stand up and I grab my backpack and walk up to her and whisper in her ear "Rogue truth, I think your power is awesome." I walk away towards the house and a minute later I hear her follow behind.
Ten minutes later we reach the house and icebox runs outside looking pissed off. "Rogue you missed history and you didn't show up at the library" "I'm sorry Bobby I just well it's not that big deal… I'll apologize to Professor X and make up the work that I missed." She walks into the house and Bobby glares at me "hey your iceman so chill" "John… look yeah I'm a little upset but if she wants to skip and go hang in the woods then whatever but…" "But what that she was with me" "John she's in danger I wasn't supposed to say anything and you can't tell anyone exceptionally Rogue." "What kind of danger is she in?" "I don't know Logan wouldn't tell me but I know you're going to make some smart ass remark but I don't care. When I'm not with Rogue I worry that something is going to happen and I wasn't there to protect her." "I get it you care about her but you can't be with her twenty-four seven and she's in a house full of mutants who's going to try and hurt her here?" "Maybe your right" "Of course I am" I say as I go inside the house and head up to my room.
