Ok needless to say I don't own
Jubilee or any of the X-men...I don't even own my
computer or my house...so don't sue me...I can't afford
it...Now Sharron, Wolf Christian and Crissy are MINE
touch and I'll break your fingers....
Feed back is ALWAYS loved ^.^! Let me know if you loved

Jubilee walked through the mall with Oro, Rogue and Jean
blushing at their comments about newlyweds. She was
carrying several bags, two of which where from the
lingerie shop, the reason why she was being teased.
Suddenly she stopped and stared in a window letting the
others move on ahead. She stood and stared at the baby
clothes in the window wondering what she would have...someday.
Jean stopped, looking back smiling and wondered again if
she should tell Jubilee yet...after all it was a barely
formed embryo. Deciding to let Jubilee find out on her
own she walked back and pulled her after the others.
"Time enough for that later Jubilee...."
She laughed softly as Jubilee blushed redder than her
"After all that is what newlyweds try for so
Jubilee ran ahead to catch up with the others not
answering, but Jean caught a wisp of thought that she
wished that was what they were doing. Staring after
Jubilee she walked slowly to rejoin the group knowing
that thought wasn't one she wanted to discuss. They
walked on shopping and talking for the next 3 hours, when
they returned to the mansion they dropped Jubilee off at
her little house she shared with Logan. They where
unprepared for Jubilee to come running back out crying
and ask them to take her to the Mansion. When they
arrived Jubilee ran to the room where she had lived until
two weeks before when she had married Logan in a
beautiful ceremony. They followed her confused as to the
problem and watched as she threw herself down on the bed
"Jubilee? What's wrong? Suga' talk to Rogue..."
As Rogue sat down on the bed Jubilee threw herself into
her arms crying as if her heart would break. Jean moved
to the door.
"I'm going to ask Hank for a sedative...I think she
needs to get some sleep."
Going to the lab she told Beast that Jubilee was
hysterical and needed to calm down but she was pregnant...even
if she didn't know it yet. Beast nodded and prepared a
syringe of fluid and walked with Jean to Jubilee's old
Giving her the injection he was surprised at the sobs
racking her body so strongly.
"What has occurred to bring about such an emotional
state of agitation?" Asked Hank.
"I don't know, but it's powerful if the suga' is
Rogue's Southern drawl was becoming pronounced showing
she was getting upset at not knowing. Oro moved to the
"I'm guessing it has something to do with Logan.
After all we had just dropped her off when she came back
out crying. I will go and ask him."
As Rogue laid the now sleeping Jubilee back on the bed
she nodded. "Be best."
Turning to go they where suprised to see Logan standing
in the doorway somewhat disheveled.
"She all right?" he growled in his gravely
Oro stared at him in shock of his appearance...almost as
if...She shook off the thought knowing that Logan loved
Jubilee too much to cheat on her.
"She shall be fine Logan. Hank simply gave her a
seditive..she needed to calm down. What happened to her?
I have not seen her like this in years."
Logan turned away, but not before Oro saw the pain flash
in his eyes. Jean gasped softly as she picked up what had
happened from Jubilee and Logan looked at her.
"Yeah, I did..and I don' expect her to forgive me
With that Logan jumped down the stairs and ran out the
door. Oro looked at Jean with a question in her eyes.
Jean simply shook her head.
"Let's just let Jubilee sleep..she's had a shock."
Jean took Oro's arm and pulled her out of the room
shutting the door behind her.
"Don't ask Oro...you really don't want to know."
Oro looked at Jean and nodded.
"Perhaps you are correct. I do not really want to
When Jubilee woke up she lay there trying to figure out
why she was at the mansion...had she only been dreaming
that she had married Logan? She moved her hand to brush
her short hair out of her face and saw her wedding rings.
No, it was real...she had married Logan....then why was...Jubilee
closed her eyes in pain as memory flooded back. She lay
there and wondered if it was better to know or not know
the reason for Logan's sudden coldness to her so soon
after their marriage...after all they hadn't even been
living together for two months...she thought it was
because of the adjustment period that all newlyweds went
through. Instead it was....Jubilee buried her head in the
pillow and cried until she could control herself.
Standing up she went into the bathroom and washed her
face, brushing her hair she walked back into the bedroom
and noticed some of her old clothes where still there...then
she noticed it hanging there...her wedding dress..Logan
had looked so suprised when she walked down the steps
wearing it...she reached out a hand to touch it and felt
the tears starting to well up again. Pulling out a shirt
and some jeans she dressed quickly and went downstairs
the face the others. As she walked down the stairs
Jubilee could hear them laughing in the Rec room...she
knew that if she went in there Bobby and Gambit would be
playing pool...Bishop and Oro would be watching TV and
Hank would be reading some book. Feeling a rumble in her
stomach she decided to get something to eat first. She
was suprised to see Jean sitting in the kitchen with a
full plate of food in front of her.
"I was just about to bring this to you. But then I
heard you coming down. Do you want to talk about it?"
Jubilee shook her head and sat down.
"Not yet...so you know?"
Jean nodded. Jubilee looked down at the food and drew in
a shuddering breath. Where before she had been starving
now the sight of it made her sick.
"Excuse me Jean, I've gotta....."
With that she ran for the bathroom barely making it in
time to empty the contents of her stomach. Jean wiped her
face and held her hand as dry heaves shook her
"Eh, be dere somethin' wrong with the pei'te? Com'on
now chere...you just hang on to Gambit and we get you to
Hank lab..he fix you up."
Gambit picked Jubilee up and carried her up the stairs to
Hank's lab, setting her down on an examination table he
waited to hear the results. Hank murmered as he examined
Jubilee and then pronounced her in perfect health.
"It is only that her body is too stressed to deal
with her mind's agitation."
Jubilee looked at Jean. "Can I ask you something?"
"I'll send Scott to pack your things Jubilee...that
won't be a problem...you don't have to face them until
Jubilee lowered her head. "Thank you Jean...I really
Jean nodded sensing that she still wasn't ready to talk
about it. Walking down stairs she told her husband Scott
Summers what she wanted him to do. He took one look at
her face and knew better than to argue, he watched as
Jubilee went into her old room and turned and walked out
to the jeep and began driving to the little house to get
Jubilee was sitting on her bed when she heard Scott drive
back up, moving to the window she looked out see by Scott's
face that he knew now...she moved quietly out of the room
sneaking down the stairs avoiding the noisy steps and
stood outside of the Rec room as Scott told the others
what he'd seen in her home.
"Scott de Pe'tie be upset...dis be no time be talkin'
like dat..we know the Canulkel head be too devoted to
Chere to cheat on her. With a guy..." She could hear
Gambit arguing with Scott and stood there with tears
leaking down her face.
"I'm telling you that I found him in the Shower with
Domino Boy...and they weren't washing either."
Oro looked at him. "That would explain the upset
Jubilation was experiencing when we dropped her off, she
had barely had time to go upstairs when she came running
Jubilee had heard enough, she knew she could not stay
with the X-men any longer. Moving out to the jeep she
climbed in and started it driving off. Scott and the
others came running out of the Mansion but she ignored
simply drove to her house..no she thought her FORMER
house. Walking in she went to her bedroom and without
looking at the bed where her husband and his lover lay
she reached into her jewelry box, removing a few special
pieces and a folded wad of money. "Bitch" came
softly from the bed. Without turning around she removed
her wedding ring and placed it beside the jewelry box,
then she walked out the door and never once looked at
Getting back into the jeep Jubilee drove away from the X-men
knowing that if she stayed she'd see them together, and
have to deal with the sympathy of the others...something
she couldn't abide. As she drove away tears feel in a
steady stream. Finally she had to pull off to the side of
the road and cried until there weren't any tears left to
cry anymore. Starting the Jeep back up she drove off not
really caring where or to how far she went pulling off to
the side of the road to sleep in short naps, because she
was unable to sleep much.
Finally she came to rest in a small town, she looked
around consideringly. Nowhere, AZ said the sign outside
of the town. Figuring the X-men wouldn't find her here
she pulled out the false papers she had bought in one of
bigger towns. 'You can always find what you're looking
for...if you know where and how to look' she mused as she
looked at papers claiming she was Julie Lee Logan.
Walking into the employment office she looked through the
notices posted finding only farm hands, and waitressing
jobs in a fast food place. Thinking she might have to try
somewhere else she didn't notice the stranger approaching
her until she spoke.
"You looking for a job honey? I just might have a
Thinking it was another man hitting on her she turned
around a sharp retort ready on her lips to be suprised by
a tiny older woman in front of her.
"Well, yes...I'm divorced...and I wanted to start
As she nodded and turned back to her desk she was talking.
"Well, I think you just might be Heaven Sent Dearie...I
have a job I haven't been able to fill because she doesn't
want a teenager...and there aren't any adults here to
Pulling out a card with an address on it she handed it to
Jubilee. "Now you just go there and tell Sharron
that I sent you to her."
Jubilee stared at the card. "Umm, may I ask? What
kind of job is this?"
She looked at the lady...Mccdoment by her name plate in
supicision of the job.
"Paid Companion...Oh dear did I forget to tell you
about it? It's for Sharron Suresan she is in a wheelchair
now and she HATES it because she can't do everything she
used to. She needs someone to live with her and clean
house, fix meals, do laundry, that sort of thing. And she
has stated she absolutely, positivity refuses to have a
teenager. She says their irresponsible, immature and
unprepared to live with a demanding and strong willed
person. By the way dear...I need a few things for records..and
I'll drop them off with Sharron's accountant..Now Name?"
Jubilee hesitated thinking of the fact that her cash was
almost gone, most of it having been used to buy the false
papers. Pulling them out of her purse she replied. "Julie
Jubilation Lee now Julie Lee Logan walked into the house
she had been living in for two of the three months she
had been gone from the X-men, sweaty and pale faced with
nausea. Sharron looked at her.
"Julie? Are you ok? Oh, feeling sick again? Maybe
you should go to the doctor...this has gone on too long..."
Julie nodded. "I think your right...I really have
been getting Ill lately."
Sharron didn't tell her what she was starting to suspect
was wrong with her, knowing from all the nights she had
be restless and heard Julie crying all night that the
girl was upset over something important.
"Just make sure he checks you over well girl....I'd
hate to lose my helper just as I get her trained."
Julie smiled having come to like this crusty lady, she
tried to be stern and forbidding but spoiled it by having
a kind heart.
While Jubilee was going to the doctor to find out why her
flu had hung on so long, Logan was pacing through one of
the rooms in his little house wondering where she could
be since the latest detective had found nothing AGAIN.
Logan worried about her knowing how impetuous and
careless with her life she could be...and if the center
for Mutant Control ever got hold of her again there was
no telling what they'd do to her. Christian appeared
behind him and wrapped his arms around Logan's neck. He
frowned to see Logan holding Jubilee's wedding ring again.
"What's wrong lover? You seem upset about something...."
"Upset? Why should I get upset? 'Cause Jeannie won't
talk to me...Slim gloats every time he's around me...and
Oro gives me glares that would melt steel? And I can'
find my Wife to make sure she's ok?" Wolvie growled
the words snapping at Christian again. Christian pulled
back hurt and started to remove his arms from around
Logan reached up and wrapped his paw around Christian's
arms. "No, I'm just upset and worried."
"Still no word?"
"No, it's like she just vanished off the face of the
Wolvie sighed and looked at the ring Jubilee had left on
their dresser. Christian had a few thoughts that even now
Jubilee came between them. He had thought that when he
and finally made Logan his he would forget Jubilee and if
that B~~ no...if he had been in her place he would not
have wanted to stay either...after all if his plan hadn't
worked he would have left unable to bear seeing them
happy together. Logan sighed looking out the window
wondering if Jubilee was still alive or lying in a ditch
dead somewhere. Christian started to kiss his neck in an
attempt to distract him. At the time Logan was turning
into his lover's arms Julie was staring at the doctor.
" I'M WHAT? You can't be serious...I can't be..."
Dropping her head into her hands she thought back and
realized that even with protection Logan's damn healing
factor had caused her to become pregnant.
"Now I'm going to refer you to a obstretician. He'll
want to see you once a month for the first 5 then twice a
month until your last month when he'll want to see you
every week. Are there any medical conditions in yours or
your husband's family that we should watch for?"
Julie shook her head still not believing she could be
pregnant. What was she gonna tell Sharron...oh God...how
was she going to keep her job and have a baby? Sharron
was waiting when Julie came home hours later, she was
smiling because she had already heard through the
grapevine that Julie was pregnant. She had had a suprised
prepared for weeks it had just needed to be placed in
She frowned at Julie, "Where have you been? I have
found that you have been lax in your duties...don't think
because you're sick I'll let you get by without tending
to house...come with me..this room hasn't been cleaned in
She led Julie to a room that had been locked for almost a
month now and Julie had been unable to find a key.
Opening the door she flung the door wide and wheeled into
the room motioning for Julie to turn on the light. As she
did so Julie gasped to find a complete nursery with blue
and pink striped walls a white crib and and all the
things a baby would need. As Julie gasped in suprise
"I knew what was wrong with you for quite a while
now...but that was for you to discover. You will have a
place in my home for as long as you wish. You and the
baby will live here with me...because I'm selfish and don't
want to lose your company."
Julie dropped to her knees crying and placed her head on
her lap. "I never had a mother...You treat me like I
always dreamed my mother would. I am so glad I stopped
Sharron ran her hand over the short red hair that had
grown black roots in the last 3 months.
"Maybe you should go have your hair returned to it's
real color...whoever you're running from won't find you."
Julie nodded. "I will tomorrow."
Later that night Julie picked up the phone in her bedroom
and punched in the first three digits of Logan's phone
number before hanging it up. She still wasn't ready to
deal with their problems, it was just so much easier to
forget they had been married, to move on with her life,
to deal with this child on her own. Three months later as
Logan became accustomed to living with Christian instead
of Jubilee she was staring at her doctor in shock again.
