The intruder unsheathed two sets of metal claws coming out of both of his hands. She backed up as much as she could, She feared that the monster that stood before her was hell-bent on killing her.
“Who are you, and what do you want?” she asked, trying to reason with him.
The man with the claws steadily came towards her, his gruff voice sending chills up her spine. “You girly, I want you.” At that moment he lunged towards Rogue, but she was quick to act, getting out of the line of fire just in time. He crashed through a wall which only made him angry. “Stand still, and I’ll make it quick. You’re dealing with the X-Men now, and you ain’t gotta chance.”
Rogue picked up a broken board ready to defend herself. “X-Men?” She was confused by the name. She had no idea what he was talking about. “I don’t understand.” She was becoming angry now, and shouted at him. “I just want you to leave me alone.” She smashed the board down on his head and ran out of the room and down the stairs. He ran after her, but Rogue managed to escape him.
Scared out of her mind, still feeling Cody inside of her even though his hold wasn’t nearly as strong, Rogue ran. It was all she could think of to do. She didn’t understand why that guy attacked her, but she wasn’t about to give him a second chance.
She approached a high wooden fence. It would be much simpler to try and jump over it then go around. She didn’t know if that guy was following her or not, and her trail would be harder to follow or so she thought. There was one flaw in her plan. She looked down to see a dark-skinned woman with white hair. She had thrown something at the fence that Rogue was more at the top of. Before she could act there was an explosion, and Rogue was thrown to the ground. She barely had time to recover when she looked up and saw her Aunt Irene.
Rogue was so confused that she wasn’t sure if it really was Irene that she saw. “Rogue, it’s me,” she heard the woman say. “Aunt Irene. Try to remember.”
