reproaches

The first time the children saw his eyes on Rogue, their eyes went wide in shock. Olivier hid behind Remy's leg while Rebecca demanded of him what he'd done to their mama.

After a little explanation, they calmed down.

Now they're used to seeing her with this or that trait or mannerism or accent of one of their Cajun relatives, though they still cast reproachful gazes at Remy as if he somehow should make it stop.

"I'm beginning to think they blame me for your mutation," he complains while getting ready for bed.

Rogue retorts, "You are the worst offender."
