Summary: A look into Rogue's thoughts
Late at night, that's when it really gets to me. When I'm all alone in the darkness and I'm the only one who can hear them. The voices inside me.
They're with me all the time, of course, but I fight them hard when I'm around other people. It's when I'm alone that I don't feel like fighting any more. In these moments, my insides become tangled.
I can hear Cody sometimes. He's not nearly as loud as he used to be. There are too many other voices that are louder than his. It's sad really. He was my first kiss, the first use of my powers, and yet now he's merely a shadow in my mind.
Then, of course, there's Magneto. He really creeps me out when he's so loud in my head. I keep looking for him, and then I realize that I don't have to look for him. He's in my head.
And Pyro…he's the latest addition to the mix. He's not so loud. Rebellious, yes, and always ready to get into some kind of trouble. I have to keep a close watch over him.
But the loudest voice in my head is Logan's. I guess it's because I almost killed him twice by absorbing his powers. I took so much of him into me that sometimes, his voice is my own. There are times when I have to stop what I'm doing, concentrate really hard to get him to shut up, and then I can go on with the day. And anger management? I've had to take that up as well since I absorbed Logan.
The most amazing thing though is that I hear Logan's voice in my head telling me how beautiful I am, and I stop to listen. I know that it's not me thinking in Logan's voice. It was actually in Logan's head on the Statue of Liberty when he held me. It's a moment frozen in time and forever replaying itself in my head.
No one really knows what goes on inside anyone else's head. No one but themselves….and me if they're unfortunate enough to touch my skin.
