Part 3 of 14
Outside the door Tilly was listening carefully. She heard every word Lucas said. She knew the party on the other end’s name was Remy, but seeing that she only got half of the conversation she wasn’t sure why Lucas was telling him where Rogue went.
She quietly walked back over to the desk and picked up the phone and dialed. Slowly the red curls, pale green eyes along with the thin firm teenage human body slowly faded away and in its place stood a blue-skinned woman with yellow eyes.
She waited for someone to pick up the other end. “Irene,” she stated.
“Yes, Raven,” the woman on the other end said.
“I found her,” the blue-skinned woman said.
“Will you bring her home?” Irene asked.
“No, not yet,” Raven said. “First I have to contact someone, an old friend. I’ll call you soon when I know what I’m going to do.”
“Be careful, Raven,” Irene said. “She’s fragile, and if you reveal yourself too soon she just might run again.”
“Don’t worry, Irene, I have no intention of losing her again.”
Raven hung up the phone and dialed another number. After barely one ring a man picked up. “Jean-Luc,” she said sharply into the phone.
“Who’s this?” he asked.
“Don’t play dumb with me,” Raven said. “You know who it is and we have trouble. It seems your boy is up to something.”
“Henri?” Jean-Luc questioned.
“No, the other one,” Raven said. “And I’m not going to allow him to corrupt my daughter.”
“What’s Remy done now?” Jean-Luc asked.
“I’m not sure yet, but you better keep him under control.”
“I can’t control dat boy any more den you can control dat daughter a yours. Don’t you remember de reasons we kept dose two apart?”
“Yes, and it’s going to stay that way,” Raven said. “Irene’s vision spells disaster if those two are allowed to stay together. So what do you intend to do about?”
“Don’ worry, Raven. I’ll handle it,” Jean-Luc said and then abruptly hung up the phone.
