New Mutants/New Mutants…IN SPACE!! Crossover #2
Post by Last Hero on Apr 10, 2007, 12:58pm

Cover – Mike and Amelia squaring off against each other with swords.

Title: Breaking Up Is Hard to Do…well, okay…not that hard…

Written by – Skitch (with an assist by havok3595, but he refuses to take a full writing credit)

[[Note: This takes place right after New Mutants…IN SPACE #4.]]

Even before Mike had finished getting his arm patched up after his foolhardy attempt at tackling Neutron, Amelia was already getting ready to go back to Earth with the Professor. The Juber was scheduled back on patrol almost immediately, and Amelia knew her place was back home.

Mike walked into the Juber's lounge where the Professor and Amelia were saying their goodbyes. Mike smiled at her, "We've got matching injuries!"

Amelia rolled her eyes with a matching smile, "You're just trying to copy me. Such a wanna-be!"

"Of course! Ever since I first saw Power Rangers, I've always wanted to be a cute Asian chick with attitude." Mike thinks about it, "Although, I think she was Vietnamese, not Chinese…not like most of the idiots watching the show know there is a difference."

Amelia smiled at him, "Do you ever stop rambling?"

"Only when a pretty girl kisses me."

Amelia punched his good arm, "Oh! Does that happen a lot?"

"No. But, now that I am single again, I'm hoping that will change." Mike said with a wink.

Amelia's eyes dropped slightly. This is what she wanted…but she still felt odd about it . Her eyes came up sharply and suddenly realizing that Mike could probably hear that thought.

Mike looked at her oddly until he realized that she was giving him the same look Rapt had kept giving him before they had gone down to the Moon. Mike said softly, "It doesn't work that way…"

"I don't know what you're talking about…"

Mike nodded solemnly, "Yeah, you do. My telepathy…it's not that big a deal…"

Not that big a deal? Amelia doesn't say a word, but her face is incredulous.

"It's like a mental walkie talkie. I can send a message, or receive a message, but only from someone who wants to send it to me."

For now… Amelia cringed. She'd been the victim of mind control. Powers that mess with the mind lead to terrible things.

Mike sighed at Amelia's cringe, "I thought everyone was going to be excited for me, but the people I care about most in the universe are scared by this."

"I'm sorry. But, this is nothing to be excited for." Amelia looked worried all of a sudden, "What if you've been using these powers on me all along, and we just didn't know it?"

Mike reeled back like he had been slapped in the face, "That's impossible! I would never do that. Especially not to you!"

Amelia shook her head, "I know you wouldn't intentionally, but what if it was subconscious! That does explain a lot…uhm, no offense."

Mike scowled, "How could I possibly take offense at that? The part that implies that the only reason you could possibly want to be with me is mind control. Or the part that I would actually use mind control on you to make you love me?"

Amelia scowled back, "No…that's not…"

"Just go back to Earth. Lead the New Mutants. Find someone who will treat you miserable like you think you deserve. You win, Amelia. I am done." Mike rubs his hands together. He flashed her a quick subtle smile that she was the only one who caught. He looked around and noticed his teammates and Professor Xavier had gotten really uncomfortable. Hmmm…this was an almost award-winning performance. Why did he feel so cold and angry? This was all just an act…right?

Amelia stood there looking stunned. Tears seemed to threaten to come out of the edge of her eyes, "You are such a jerk!" She returned Mike's smile quickly, touching her pocket quickly to make sure the note Mike slipped her was still in place. He had asked her not to open it until she was back in her room, and she was definitely curious what he had to say. “How could you say things like that after all we’ve been through? You said you LOVED me.”

“Oh that's just what we call pillow talk, baby, that's all.” Mike off-handedly remarked.

“But… but…you can’t LEAVE me! I came all the way out here for you and…you’re just going to leave me? Just like that? What do you want me to do? I can’t just…I can’t just let you walk away like that…not when I’ve come so far…for you…”

"Just go home, Amelia," Mike said, turning away from her. He gave a quick goodbye to the Professor and stormed off to his dorm room, slamming the door with great finality. Amelia brought her hands up to her face and dashed off, sobbing.

Mike sends her a quick mental image, I will miss you Amelia, and I hope to see you soon, my first love. As before, Amelia refused to send him anything back, but he was pretty sure she got the message.

***

Later on, back on Earth, Amelia sat in her room and opened Mike's last message to her. A small part of her had been tempted to just roll it in a ball and toss it into the garbage, but Amelia decided that she had to read it.

Amelia was surprised to see Mike had drawn two Chinese characters on the letter. Amelia knew how bad Mike's drawing was, so she could tell he must have worked on these for hours to get them right.

One character was friendship,

the other character was love.

The letter was simple and short. "Kind of like Mike." Amelia said out loud with a soft smile.

"Dear Amelia,
With you leading the team, there is no way in hell you guys will fail. You guys are going to make the Earth a better place for us mutants, which is awesome because I plan on having clones someday, and I'd hate to raise them in a hellhole. You know how I feel about hellholes.

I'm glad I got to see you again, and I am glad we can still be friends. You are an amazing person, and I would hate to think of my life without you in it. I love you, Amelia, and I hope you find every bit of happiness you can.

Eternally yours,
Mike"

It's good, not as good as the other one but good.
