She looked down at a stomach that had grown huge over the past few weeks at 6 months she had expected to grow but not to feel as if she had a 30 pound weight attached to her stomach. Now to find she was having was just too much...she went home in a daze and told Sharron the news. Sharron picked up the phone and ordered another bed and clothes because the test had revealed a boy and a girl. Julie smiled happy that Sharron was just as excited over the births as she was. Sharron looked at this lovely young lady that was like the daughter she had never had and wished she could keep her forever but knew that would not be possible because someday Julie would feel strong enough to leave her and find a place of her own.

Almost 3 months later the X-men where on TV again, once again Sharron watched as Julie stood turning off the set rather than watch the segment, she wondered once again that Julie seemed to hate Mutants...after all she was so tolerant of others. Julie doubled over suddenly and clutched at her stomach.

"I think it's time now Sharron...We should go."

Sharron wheeled herself out to the special car they had set up for her to use. 12 hours later Julie gave birth to both a boy and a girl.

"What are their names?"

Sharron asked touching the delicate fingers. Julie smiled as she held the twins.

"Christina Jean Logan, and Wolf Scott Logan, and wouldn't it burn his buttons to know I named his son Scott?"

Sharron looked at her puzzled at that comment and the laughter that followed it.

Sharron smiled as she watched Julie play with the 3 year old babies in the back yard from her window. Then she frowned and leaned forward not really sure if she had seen that...yes, there it was again...Crissy and Wolf where passing something sparkly back and forth...she was sure of it....then it finally hit her. Julie's ex-husband must have been a Mutant...that must be why she wouldn't watch the news about brought back memories. Sharron smiled to finally have figured out the one enigma in a perfect young woman...she was proud of how Julie had grown working for her, she looked on her as the daughter she had never been blessed with and had been so happy the first time the babies had called her Nana Sharron.

Julie held tightly to Crissy and Wolf's hands as she walked them to the bus stop, this was such a special day...her babies had grown up so they where starting Kindergarten...and she wouldn't be there with them. Kneeling down she straightened Wolf's collar.

"Now remember what we talked about?"

They nodded solemnly. "Yes, mommy."

"I know it's hard...but we have to keep your special abilities a secret...Ok?"

They nodded again and she hugged them both as the bus arrived. Standing there and waving good bye she held back the tears at how much they had grown so quickly in such good ways. She frowned hoping they would remember to keep their powers a secret..after all this town seemed tolerant but there was no need of taking chances. Wolf and Chrissy had both inherited Logan's enhanced senses the smell, the sight, and the hearing, as well as the ability to not get hurt and they healed so fast. But they each had her plasmoids worried her that she couldn't keep them from the prejudice that would follow them for being a mutant.

Rogue and Remy where walking down the streets of this quaint little town where their car had chosen to break down and looking at the sleepy movements of the people. Stopping to share a kiss with Remy, Rogue looked at her wedding ring happy that the one thing she had wished for so long had finally happened. Suddenly they heard a scream from the alley by them, turning at the sound they ran only to be beaten by a 9 year old boy who ran in snarling and proceeded to help a little girl about the same age defend herself from some bullies. As they moved forward to intervene the two children took each other's hand and threw something at them from bare hands. As the sparks hit the bullies they screamed in pain and ran off. Looking at each other they both knew these small children where Mutants and that they needed to be trained.

As they watched the little boy checked over his sister and comforted her as she cried brushing the dirt off of her. Rouge stepped forward to offer her assistance when the little girl sobbed that her hair was messed up now and the little boy looked so lost. Remy hunkered down and looked at the little boy holding out his hand.

"My name be"

Then Remy sucked in his breath as the little boy looked at him with eyes in a dark violet measuring him....he hadn't been looked at like that since...shaking his head he threw off the thought knowing that Jubilee must be dead to not have contacted them. The little black haired boy took his hand solemnly shaking it.

"My Name is Wolf, and this is My sister Crissy."

With that the little boy put his arm around his twin sister. Whispering in a voice that they wouldn't hear but she could he asked,

"Do you think they saw?"

She nodded quietly and looked up at Rogue.

"You are almost as pretty as my Mommy."

Rogue and Gambit's eyes met sharing a thought that they needed to persuade their mother to come to the X-men and train the children. Reaching out and taking Crissy's hand Gambit smiled exerting his charm powers on them.

"Well, I'd like to meet a woman prettier than my Rogue...dat be a sight to see, non?"

Wolf and Chrissy looked at each other seeming to carry on a conversation without talking. Turning back to Gambit and Rogue they nodded and each took one's hand, Chrissy taking Gambit's and Wolf taking Rogue's they led them to a large Victorian home set off on a side street. When they reached the front gate Wolf reached out and rang the bell, soon after the door was opened by an elder woman in a wheelchair.

"Wolf? Chrissy? What happened?"

Her aged eyes took in their appearances and realized what must have happened.

"You where fighting again." Sharron's voice was heavy with disappointment. "And after you promised your mother."

She shook her head turning to the newcomers.

"Thank you for making sure they get home. Would you like something to drink or eat?"

Rogue shook her head. "No, thank you ma'am..we just wished to speak to you about the children. It really wasn't their fault...the other kids attacked them first. But ma'am..did you know they are mutants? They need to be trained to use their powers for good...or else they'll get used by unscrupulous people."

The children simply stood there in silence waiting for something. Sharron looked at them.

"Your mother isn't home might have time to clean up if you hurry."

Just then the sound of a car door slamming was heard.

"Wolf? Chrissy? Come help me with Grocies...there are a lot of them."

The children turned and walked into the kitchen slowly. They heard a woman's voice raise in shock at their appearance and Sharron smiled slightly.

"Please stay for dinner...Julie is a wonderful cook now, you will enjoy it. Where are you staying?"

"We don't have anyplace yet. Our car should be fixed in about two more hours and we where going to leave after that." Sharron smiled and said, "Well dinner should be ready in an hour...that gives you an hour to look around town and an hour to eat before you there anywhere you're going in particular?"

"No ma'am..we're on our honeymoon."

Rogue blushed as she offered this explanation. Remy watched as a young woman with long black hair went by following the children up the stairs elegant and graceful was his estimate. He knew the pretty Pe'tie would grow up to be like that also.

Suddenly he nodded, "We would be pleased to attend dinner with you...we would also like to talk to the children's mother."

" I can offer you refreshments...or you can examine our which case you'll be back in 10 minutes and ready for refreshments."

"Well, we need to find a Motel room and change our clothes first."

Sharron frowned. "Oh my , yes, we do dress for dinner. Julie doesn't want the children to grow up heathens. She said having her for a mother is bad enough, they where going to have manners. If you do not wish to you needn't dress up."

Rogue smiled. "We'll be back at about...." Looking at her watch she offered, "Six?"

Sharron nodded and saw them out. Closing the door she went to tell Julie about what had happened, letting her know there would be two more for dinner. At six o'clock on the dot Remy rang the bell to announce they where there. Chrissy opened the door and stood there looking absoulty darling in a long lacy dress of violet matching her eyes. Wolf stood beside her in a small suit of brown material. They both smiled at the X-men looking completely happy where they where bullies and all. They led the way to a small dinning room where a woman in a dress matching Crissy's was checking the food with her back to them her long hair braided in a cornet around her head, her movement's where unhurried and graceful as she lit the candles and turned around. Rogue gasped drawing Remy's eyes to her from Chrissy thinking how much she reminded him of Jubilee as a little girl.

"What wrong Chere?"

He noticed she was staring and turned also to see Jubilee standing there with her face pale and her hand to her chest pressing against it.


Rogue rushed forward and hugged her being careful not to hurt her.

"Pe'tie!" Remy joined in the hug, holding both of them as they wept and laughed at the same time. Jubilee looked at them with tears sparkling on her cheeks.

"How did you know I was here?"

"We didn't!!! Our car broke's being fixed..and Crissy...and Wolf..." Rogue's voice trailed off as she looked at her. "Oh, look so good."

Drawing her back into an embrace she whispered, "We thought you must have died when none of our detectives could find you anywhere." Rogue's voice broke in a sob.

"De Canuckle head were 'bout gone crazier when we no found you pe'tie."

Jubilee stiffened and pulled away wiping her eyes. "Let's discuss that later. I'd like you to meet someone." Motioning to the children she said, "These are my Children....Wolf Scott and Christina Jean..."

Jubilee placed a hand on each one's shoulder revealing how much they looked liked her when side by side. Meeting their eyes she shook her head telling them she didn't want to discuss it yet.

"Now dinner is ready..shall we sit down? I'm really a good"

After a quiet dinner in which Jubilee told them about the children's schooling and their awards she cleared the table when Rogue and Gambit went into the parlor with Sharron.

"So you are those X-men I see on the news? And Julie's name is really Jubilee? That really explains a lot."

Just then the children came into the room.

"Explains what, Nana Sharron?" Asked Crissy.

"Nothing dear heart....Just a few things I wondered about."

Crissy nodded. "Ok."

Wolf stepped next to Sharron and helped her move her chair into position. The movement was automatic and unthought of. The children settled down at their desks and started to do their homework with the ease of long practice. Jubilee walked in and sat down and picked up a shirt and started to sew a button back on. Rogue and Gambit watched them from the Couch and wondered at this new Jubilee that was so different from the wild impetuous child they had known.

Without looking up from the shirt she was sewing Jubilee asked about the other X-men. Receiving their answers helped to bring them up to date on everyone that she had tried so hard to forget. Noticing that she didn't mention two specific X-men Rogue said "Wolverine..."

Jubilee's head snapped up and she said quite calmly, "No, I don't want to know yet."

Nodding her head in the direction of the children she made it clear that until they left she would not talk.

Nodding and watching her they waited for the children to go to bed. As they watched following them Jubilee put Wolf and Crissy to bed and tucked them in kissing them. She led the way into her bedroom and gestured at them to sit down.

" to My Ex-husband...I don't ever want his name mentioned in this house...Am I clearly understood?"

"But Pe'tie...don' you wanna know?"

"NO! And I don't want Logan showing up on my door step looking to make amends...what he did was me or to those children...Can you IMAGINE what it would have been like if I'd stayed? My babies would have had to watch their father "PLAY" with another man...maybe that's more accepted, but damn it! It was only two weeks after our wedding! Why the hell did he marry me if he wanted Christian?"

"Now Pe' weren't like that..."

Jubilee looked at him coldly. "Three day's after our wedding Logan moved into his own room claiming he couldn't sleep hearing my heartbeat...less than two weeks later I find him in bed with Christian...and you're telling me what it WASN"T?"

Jubilee took a calming breath trying to keep from waking the children unaware they where listening to them in their rooms.

"Now there are a few things I want you to promise...Number 1 being...Logan is never to know about them...and Number 2 being you forget you ever saw me again. If I wanted the X-men to know where I was...I would have called. I still have the number."

Rogue protested, "But Jubilee...Logan has a right to get to know his children."

"HE HAS NO RIGHTS!! He gave up those rights when he Fucked far as I'm concerned he gave up any rights he had when he cheated on me! I gave birth, I gave up my freedom to do my best by my children, I gave up my time, my attention, my love and most of all my Loyalty, to a man who did one thing right, he gave me Wolf and Christina. You want to talk about his RIGHTS? Where was he when I lay on a hospital bed trying to give birth? Where was HE when Crissy broke her arm and it healed in less than 3 days...not 6 weeks? Where was he when I watched My daughter play Cinderella and my son play Prince Charming? He gave up any rights to our life...and I don't want him in it."

Rogue shook her head. " children have a right to train at the mansion same as you did. They need to learn their powers just as you did. You grew up with us...don't they deserve the same consideration?"

Jubilee shook her head. "Even if I wanted to return and face Logan...I have to think of Sharron..this is her home. She will not want to move and I can't leave her. She helped me at a time when I was lost and confused...took me in and treated me like her daughter. I won't abandon her simply because you happened to break down in this town."

Rogue nodded slowly understanding that this Jubilee was not a child and had a right to make her choices good or bad. I understand suga' I just can't help but feel it's wrong."

"I don't care if it is right or's my choice, and I want you to promise me, you won't tell Logan. If you want to tell the others you can. But! make sure they promise not to tell him either. I won't have him showing up here."

Rogue and Gambit both agreed to the promise and left to go back to their hotel.

Crissy slipped from her bed and went into her brother's bedroom. They held a whispered conversation as they listened to their mother crying in her bedroom and made a pact right there, if they ever met their father they would make him pay for hurting their mother so badly he made her cry. Falling asleep on Wolf's bed neither one of them was aware of Jubilee walking into the room and covering them up gently kissing their foreheads and whispering that she loved them.

As she stood in the doorway watching her precious children she swore again that they would never have to deal with the truth of their conception. She turned and left the room checking the doors and locks carefully as she always did...a hold over from the days as an X-man. Knowing she would not be able to sleep she sat down in the parlor and started to sew on a dress for Crissy. Smoothing her hand over the material she wondered at the child she had been and how having them had not only given her back her self-confidence and how they had helped her to become more mature and grounded in reality..but how without them she might be dead by now.

The days passed by with Jubilee keeping a careful eye on the children waiting for one of the X-men to show up to talk to them..after all she knew them better than to believe they had given up, so she was unsurprised when three months later Scott and Jean drove up to the house and rang the bell. Opening the door she was suprised to be drawn into an embrace by both of them.

Jean started to cry, "I thought you where dead. I wondered if you where alive and happy or dead or..."

Jean's voice broke off in sobs. Jubilee looked at Scott as she held Jean gently and rubbed her back. Wolf came running at the sound of someone crying and skidded to a halt by the door looking over the people there.

"Mom? You ok?"

His voice was heavy with suspicion as he threw a glare at them showing that he didn't trust any X-men at all anymore.

"I'm fine, but I think Jean needs some time to compose herself."

She hugged Jean one more time holding out her arm for her son to move in close. As he did she slipped an arm around his shoulders.

"Scott, Jean this is my son Wolf Scott Logan. My Daughter isn't here right now...she had dance class."

Just then they heard a thump from another room. Turning Jubilee and Wolf ran into Sharron's room and found her lying on the floor gasping.

"SHARRON! Wolf call 9-1-1!"

Jubilee started CPR as Wolf ran for the phone dialing it.

Later that night Jubilee was pacing the waiting room of the hospital as Wolf and Crissy were doing their homework with Scott and Jean Summers watching them. The Doctor finally came out and told her the news.

"Well, there is no way she can live on her own anymore...she'll need constant care and round the clock attention. I would suggest hiring at least two nurses if not more. But she is asking for you now."

Jubilee walked into the room and felt tears well up in her eyes seeing her look so small and helpless.


Moving toward the bed she tried hard to summon a wobbly smile for her. Sharron's eyes fluttered open looking old and tired.

"Jubilee...I wanted to tell you that no matter what you will always have a place to run to. But I think you should go back to your friends. Your children need to know their father, they have a right to get to know him. He made a mistake, I know, but they need to decide for themselves, not because you decided it was best. Don't make them hate you for not giving them the chance. Go home..and let them decide."

Jubilee nodded tears in her eyes. She went home and talked to the children offering them the chance to get to know their father and telling them they would be going to the X-men Mansion to live. When they got the call the next day telling them Sharron had died, they put off moving to set her affairs in order and discovered she had made a will leaving everything in trust to Wolf and Christina..provided their mother handled it as Trustee. Jubilee watched as Scott and Jean drove the Moving van with the items they where taking back to the X-men mansion. As she gestured to the children to get in the jeep she moved into the house where there had not been any criticism...or expectations...or any disapproval. She cried silent tears of regret that those happy times where now gone. Walking back out to where the children waited she locked the door silently saying good-bye to the house, it would
provide a vacation home for them, but it would never be their home in the same way again.

Three days later Scott and Jean pulled up at the Mansion a day ahead of Jubilee and the children, because they had been able to switch off driving and make better time. Stepping out of the cab off the van they looked at the others that came down to unload the van.

"Is it ready?"

"Yes, they are going to love it."

With that Hank and Nightcrawler carried the heavy furniture inside taking Jean and Scott to the third floor that had been redone for the children. Looking in the three bedrooms and huge playroom they approved the changes.

"They'll LOVE it!" Jean exclaimed happily.

Turning around she was suprised to see Logan standing in the doorway looking as he had looked since Christian's death three years before, haggared,worn...and almost without hope.

"Wha' goin' on in here?"

Jean and Scott looked at each other silently.

"We are getting three new members...or two new one's and one old one." Replied Jean. "Two children and their mother are going to be moving in soon. They should be here tomorrow."

Logan nodded and turned around walking outside and disappearing.

"Why didn't you tell him the truth?"

"Because it's for Jubilee to decide if she'll tell him who Crissy and Wolf are, even though it is rather self-evident."

The next day Logan watched from the trees on the property as a car pulled up and two bundles of energy exploded out of the back running to where Remy, Rogue, Jean and Scott waited jumping into their arms for hugs. Cries of "Aunt Jean...Uncle Remy.." Reached his ears easily as he watched hidden from view. He turned his attention back to the car in time to see a young woman bending over the trunk of the car pulling out suitcases and bags her nicely rounded...... Logan shook his head. What was he thinking? He hadn't even looked at or woman since Christian died....and before that no woman since Jubilee left. He looked back to the Mansion in time to see a waterfall of black hair cascading over slender shoulders as they all walked inside.

With a soft growl he started to swing down from the branch then realized he was on level to see them in their rooms...he watched as a young boy threw open his window and leaned out to be pulled back in by a hand with painted nails and all Logan could see from his vantage point was that hand shaking a finger and a smooth voice cautioning him to be more careful. He heard a young girl's voice and his heart snagged remembering when Jubilee had been little and followed him around like a puppy determined to be liked whether he wanted it or not. Just then his breath snagged in his throat because for a moment it had looked like a young Jubes standing there looking at him with those big eyes, then he realized it was the boy looking out again. With a soft growl he swung down and took off running as if he could rid his mind of memories that seemed to want to drive him mad.

Two days later Logan was walking in the woods again trying to drive memories from his mind when he came across a young girl in a clearing as he watched puzzled she moved slowly around the clearing obviously looking for something. Smelling the air himself Logan could sense something on the air...a slight scent...scanning the area he found Wolf at the same time Crissy did. He
watched as she snuck up on him and pounced from the opposite direction that he had expected so they wrestled and fought with each other. Suddenly they linked hands and formed a ball of energy in their other hands playing with it making it change colors and sizes.

"Crissy? Wolf?"

Off in the distance he could barely hear a voice calling, thinking they couldn't hear it yet, he was suprised to see the little girl brush black hair out of her eyes and look at her brother.

"Mom wants us."

Wolf nodded, "I can hear her. Let's go"

With that they turned and ran off toward the voice without any hesitation. Logan watched them suprised that they could hear her, deciding it was time to meet the newest X-man he followed them. As he walked up he saw them throw themselves at a young woman with her hair neatly braided and a lacy black dress on.

"Where have you been? We have to go enroll you at school....We agreed you would continue at a private school...just like at home."

"We where exploring, and playing, Do the same rules apply? No using our powers and not telling anyone?"

"Well, most of them are going to know....after all now you live at the mansion, but yes, the same rules apply..not using your powers. That's why you two have blue belts and I have a black belt. If anyone attacks you...use your Judo first and powers second."

"Ok, Mom."

"Sure Mom."

She laughed straightening up and brushing off the hem of her dress, Logan sucked in his breath as he realized that it was Jubilee, HIS JUBILEE! As she took their hands and led them toward the car Logan realized all the others had known she was back and not told him, he took off running again...lately it seemed the only way to calm down and not hurt anything. After he had calmed down he thought about it, the children weren't very big...Jubilee had been taller and more filled out when she came to them. She must have found someone else to marry after leaving the X-men....and apparently been more happy with him. Happy enough to avoid all contact with the X-men....the thought of Jubilee with another man was enraging him....but who was he to condemn least she had waited until they where divorced...he hadn't. It was his fault that she had left..but now he had a second chance to make things better. To repair the damage he had done and make it up to her. After all his Jubilee was always eager to please, and helpful as she had been her entire life he shouldn't have any problems getting her to forgive him. Finished making his decision to get her back he went to the little house he had rarely been in for the past three years and cleaned up there instead of the lake on the property.

Jubilee left the school with a promise to be back at 3:30 to pick up the children and went to the Mall...walking around inside she could pick up so many memories of her childhood here...there was where she had made her plans and schemes to catch Logan. There was where she had played Video games constantly. Stopping in front of the baby store again she wondered did I suspect? Did I somehow know? Shaking her head she moved into the bookstore where she bought a gift for Wolf, then she went to the dance studio in the mall and signed Crissy up for classes buying her new Pointe shoes since her old ones had worn out. Finding a dainty little skirt in a gauzy pink she purchased it also. Hearing that  she could purchase time in a room she went to the car and removed her gym bag with her dance things in it. Changing her clothes she warmed up and placed her tape in the CD player and started to dance. As she lost herself in the music and the smooth movements she was unaware of the gathering students watching her in fascination. The two and three year olds waiting for their class to start where fascinated by the woman dancing enpointe so smoothly. Some dreamed of the day they could do that...others simply watched entranced by the dance. As the teacher came to gather up her students she stopped a second to watch herself having seen dancing like this before...a total involvement of body and mind blending into one being...thinking only of dancing.

After she finished and changed back into street clothes Jubilee decided to indulge herself in something she hadn't had in close to 10 years. Walking to the food court she ordered some chili fries and a drink, sitting down she ate slowly thinking of all the fries she had eaten over those teenage years, wondering how she managed to keep slim with all the grease and goo she'd eaten.

Checking her watch she saw it was close to time to pick up the kids. Driving back to the school she was suprised to see them surrounded by a group of kids talking and laughing. Getting out of the car quietly she walked up to the group to check out what was going on. Listening to the girls tell Crissy about the upcoming dance she smiled and turned her attention to the boys asking Wolf where he had learned to run like that...track was a big thing around here and he was so fast. Placing hands on their shoulders to let them know she was there Jubilee smiled at the children oblivious of the fact that the girls sighed in envy of her beauty and the boys where struck dumb by it.

"Ready to Go? I have a surprise for each of you in the car..."

Jubilee laughed as they ran for the car as fast as they could. Following at a more sedate pace she was unaware of the eyes following her every movement until the woman stepped in front of her.

"Hello Jubilee."

Jubilee gasped. "KITTY!"

With that they hugged and talked at the same time laughing.

"What are YOU doing here?" Kitty Pride asked laying her hand on her daughter Sorsha's shoulder.

Gesturing to the car she replied, "Picking up the kids. They just started here today."

"Oh, have you been teaching them at the Mansion?"

Jubilee's face closed off and became unreadable. "No, we just arrived back here a week ago."

Kitty looked at her confused.

"Oh. How's Logan?"

"I have no idea...nor do I really care actually."

Kitty simply looked at her, then she nodded.

"Ok Jubes...I really have to be going now...Sorsha and I have a date to pick out a dress for the dance."

Jubilee watched as they left thinking how happy Kitty looked and wondered again if coming back was the right thing to do. That night as she was finishing getting ready for dinner...a tradition she had continued here at the Mansion also..she heard the doorbell ring.

Wondering who it could be that late she slipped her earrings in and started out of the room meeting Crissy at the top step. As they walked downstairs together they presented a beautiful picture, one could see Jubilee in Crissy and knew Crissy would one day grow as beautiful as her mother and as graceful. Logan watched them from the shadows and grew saddened that he had missed seeing Jubilee grow into the picture walking down the steps. When they reached the dinning room Wolf stood to his feet and pulled out his Mother's chair waiting to seat her. Jubilee nodded her approval as she sat down and Wolf moved to his sister's chair to seat her. Laughing at Remy's comments of turning her son into a gentleman she looked up just in time to see Logan enter the room and her smile dropped as if it had never been. For a brief moment pain flashed in her eyes then she masked them and offered a tight polite smile.

"I'd wondered if you where ever going to come to dinner Logan. Please have a seat."

Wolf took his chair as his eyes met Crissy's.

"I don't believe you've met My children. This is Wolf...and this is Crissy."

Every one at the table heard the slight emphasis on the my. Crissy and Wolf turned their attention to their mother checking to see if she was ok. Jubilee started serving the dinner and kept the conversation polite if a bit more stilted without the warmth and laughter that had prevailed before. Crissy and Wolf ate quietly watching everyone wondering why this new person had made their mother lose the sparkle in her eyes. After they finished they asked to be excused and when Jubilee nodded. Standing when they did she walked upstairs with them to help them finish their homework. Downstairs everyone started talking to cover the silence that followed her departure not really making much sense. Then all conversations stopped as Logan stood and walked up the stairs. As he stood outside the play room he listened to the conversation within.

"Who is that Mommy? Why did you quit smiling when he came in?"

Jubilee sighed. "Well, I guess I should explain. Remember when I told you that we where coming back here to meet your daddy?"

They nodded looking at her.
