Meg's fairly small. It's difficult to see her, sometimes, when she's curled up in an armchair - reading, asleep, or just staring at the fire.

But she's there all the same. And when she catches sight of the big X-Man, she straightens in a hurry, turning around to wave to him.

He's what she's got of news.

Colossus was on his way back to the Mansion from Serenity. And when he sees Meg, he instantly feels guilty because. He hadn't thought to tell her at first.

He makes his way over and squats down to Meg's eye level. He tries for a smile, but it is just a slight quirk of metal lips that's more of a grimace.

"Little cousin. Are you well?" Because if she isn't, he can't tell her.

"Kitty is being moved." Is his way of answer.

"I am going to save her."

He thinks for a moment.


"Take care of Lockheed."

"I don't think you would exist there."

Actually, he has no clue. But Kitty wouldn't want Meg to go there. He doesn't want Meg to go there.

But he can actually lie when he is metal. The earnestness does not translate.

"It can make you insane, yes."



"...no, little cousin. She won't want you to come for her there."

He puts his large, metal hands over her fists.

"Da. I know."


"She is...all I have left of mine." This time, the real sadness under his skin translates.


"She would be very angry at me if I let anything happen to you. If I let you come with me. I can't."

Honestly?

"...I am not going alone. There is a large group of other super heroes that I am going with. We are breaking into the prison as Kitty is being transported and releasing everyone inside. Then, destroying the prison and all the gates back to the Negative Zone."

"There is more to it than that, but that is what they are telling me now."

"If I were to be honest with you, I would be forced to say that...you would be in the way. I would worry about you more than the mission."

He kisses the backs of her hands.

"Katya is my family. So you are mine, little one."

He finally stands back up.

"Thank you."

"I will let you do whatever that finishes that sentence," is his deep, bass reply.

"I need to go now. I will bring her back."

He puts a hand on Meg's head in affection before turn to make his way back out of the bar.
