“To help you,” he said, his voice was sympathetic. She was still skeptical of his intensions, but she would at least hear him out. “We’re the good guys, especially me. I was like you once. Alone, unsure of what I was, afraid to show my face. Can you believe it?”
Rogue kept a straight face, hoping this kid was being sincere. She turned and saw a girl with brown hair standing by the tall wooden fence that she had climbed over not so long ago.
“She doesn’t look so tough to me,” she faintly heard the girl say. Kitty came towards them which startled Rogue.
Kurt saw the fear in her and eyes and shouted, “Kitty, no!”
Kitty grabbed onto Rogue forcing her to the ground. Rogue easily escaped Kitty’s grasp as Kurt approached them. This was an ambush. Well, Rogue figured that they wouldn’t get her without a fight. In an attempt to get away she hit Kurt’s watch. Something strange happened after that. The image of a normal-looking human boy faded away and in its place stood a blue demon with yellow eyes and a long tail. He was the creature who was with the guy with the steel claws. This was all a ploy to get to her.
He grabbed into her, trying to stop her from getting away. In the struggle she touched his face. Suddenly new images and memories invaded her mind, but there was something different this time. Rogue stepped back. All she wanted was to get away, and suddenly she disappeared into a puff of smoke.
The next thing she knew she was in a graveyard. “What just happened?” she asked herself out loud. “Where am I?” Rogue took in her surroundings. She couldn’t fathom how this could have happened. The graveyard was a few miles away, so how did she wind up here? “Ich speche deutsch. I can speak German?” She thought for a moment. “The fuzzy one… Kurt, ah’m him, like ah was Cody. I think ah’m catchin’ on now. But how did ah…”
Suddenly Rogue was teleporting all over the graveyard, and for the first time since the traumatic incident with Cody she was actually having fun, but the feeling of joy only lasted for a few minutes. On her last teleport she reappeared a few inches off the ground and ended up falling on the ground.
