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 twins....it 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
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 them...it 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 fast..now 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 also...it 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 Remy...you?"
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
"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
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
The children simply stood there in silence waiting for
something. Sharron looked at them.
"Your mother isn't home yet...you 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 leave...is
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
"Fine...now I can offer you refreshments...or you
can examine our town..in which case you'll be back in 10
minutes and ready for refreshments."
"Well, we need to find a Motel room and change our
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
"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 down..it's being fixed..and
Crissy...and Wolf..." Rogue's voice trailed off as
she looked at her. "Oh, Jubilee...you 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
"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 cook...now."
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
"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
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
"Now.....as 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
unforgivable..to 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'tie...it 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
"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 Christian..as 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. "Suga...you 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
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
"I don't care if it is right or wrong..it'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
"I'm fine, but I think Jean needs some time to
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
"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
"Jubilee...I wanted to tell you that no matter what
you decide...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,
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
"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
"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
"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
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 anyone...man 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.
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."
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 her...at 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
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
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.
Jubilee gasped. "KITTY!"
With that they hugged and talked at the same time
"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
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.
