Broken Pieces

Timeline: Immediately after instance, A Bargain of Necessity

Watching Rachel walk out the door was the hardest thing Paige had ever had to deal with. After Paige had cried herself out a couple of times, she lay on the floor of her… just her room. Rachel was gone. Paige sat up, brushing her hand through her hair. Over what? Talking. It wasn’t fair. Paige didn’t talk and she got mad. Paige talked, and Rachel left her. With new tears threatening to fall, Paige pushed herself to her feet and looked around what had been their room.

As much as she hated to admit it to herself, Rachel’s mom had been right. Paige had been a phase. Rachel was unhappy and if she had ever really loved her, she would have stayed and fixed things instead of leaving her. She would be there now, talking to her, working things out. But that’s not what Rachel wanted.

Paige wiped her face of stray tears and tried to figure out what to do next. One of them would have to move out, but the mere thought of that made her sick to her stomach. She knew she couldn’t deal with seeing Rachel every day. She couldn’t deal with seeing Rachel find someone else. Maybe she would even get married. That would kill her.

Sitting down on the edge of her bed, Paige thought about her family. She had enever been good enough for them. Her mother had pushed her into pageants since she was a toddler, only stopping when she won the top title. Even then… she wasn’t good enough. She was a mutant. Because she was a mutant, she had gone to Xavier’s. She thought about Eve next, as she had met him when she went to school. Eve, who had been her Superman, her hero, and the love of her life. Eve had been everything to her until the registration act came into place. Which led her to Rachel.

They had pulled each other up, or so Paige had thought. She had pushed her and this was the consequences of that. She didn’t want a relationship… Rachel just wanted a distraction. What hurt the most about that, was that Paige really did love her. She loved her with all that she was. But that wasn’t enough.

This place… this school… Xavier University of Death and Heartbreak was a more accurate title for it. She hated this place. She hated it because it would always remind her of the two people that she had loved, but who couldn’t love her back. She was a useless piece of crap that nobody loved.

A shaky hand wiped her face again. She had little hopes for her plan, but if her choices were staying there and finding a new school, she was going to take the new school. Somewhere far away where she wouldn’t see Rachel. Where she wouldn’t be reminded every day that she was useless, worthless, and nothing. She would go find somewhere that could give her the cure and she would start a new life as a human, not a mutant. Maybe, just maybe, she could find some sliver of happiness in a new life. That was the American Dream wasn’t it? Finding a new life?

She would miss Bobby and Lorna… and Ripley, but she’d keep in touch this time. Nothing was stopping her now. Except the part where she didn’t want to leave Rachel. Paige lay down in their bed and hugged Rachel’s pillow to her. In seconds it was covered in tears. All of her decisions were horrible ones, but she had a bit of hope that maybe leaving and starting over again would hold some answers.
