Fic: every other word

Title: every other word
Author: K Marie (roguewords)
Rating: PG-15 for language
Disclaimer: X-Men belongs to those not me.
Summary: Short note from the other side of her life.
Author's Note: Written for Dead Letter Variations. AU for the end of X1.



It seems like I've known you forever, even if it's only been a couple of months. Known, knew—being dead really fucks with your tenses. I wanted to say, I saw what you tried to do there, and well, I'm sorry it didn't work. It was so very painful for me, and just easier to let go. I didn't hear only him, I heard everyone. Every voice that has ended up inside my head screaming for release. Mostly I just heard you though. "Hold on kid, I'm coming. Just hold on Marie, just a little longer." Whether it was you or just Logan-inside-my-head, I don't know. I do know one thing—the voice I heard was whispering something else, almost every other word — "I love you."

They gave me one wish, besides the obvious, and I asked for a sheet of paper and a pen. So I could tell you.

I love you Logan.

Love,
Marie
