This is where things get hard.

Take a mother, order her to hold onto her children until she can get past the resistance that keeps them safe, and then expect her not to balk.

Rogue balks.

Remy reminds her the plan is not to harm the children, that he's the one she'll be absorbing. They need to compare the ones she does not hurt to the one she does.

It doesn't make Rogue feel any better about it.

"You didn't go through all of this!" she sputters.

Remy's face goes still. "Chérie. You do not want to pay that price."
