" Has she talked yet?" Scott inquired of the Dark Beast. A
terrible scream was torn from a woman's lips and he knew it was she and
against his will he winced.
" Our Fearless leader, she has not. Just as she hadn't a hour ago
and the hour before that," Beast answered with ill covered honour
for Summers continued inquiry. Summers rarely went to the pens; didn't
like the experiments going on there and it was the first time he had
handed over a prisoner to him himself like this Jean Grey woman.
Normally Summers would order prisoners to be interrogated by Beast but
it had always been Alex or someone else who brought the prisoners to
Beast's lab. Yet, why had Summers turned her over to interrogation and
then keep asking about her? Strange.
" Is she...whole?" Summers asked and his voice held something
which could be a little more than simple curiosity.
" So far; yes. I do have some interesting experiments I`ll like to
run on her," Beast said with an evil smile and turned back towards
the door to his lab. Scott lay his hand on Beast's arm; stopping him.
Beast looked questionably up at him.
" Patch her up and bring her to my chambers."
Beast looked at him as if he had gone mad which he probably had.
" I think I heard that wrong. Patch her up and bring her to your
" You heard me. Do as you're told!" Scott ordered and left,
leaving a very baffled Beast behind.
" My stars and garters. That man gets stranger and stranger,"
he mumbled as he called Aurora to help with the woman.
" Scott, walk with me," Sinister demanded as he passed Scott
in the hallway, Scott going towards his chambers. Scott followed his
father towards his private chambers and patiently waited for him to say
what he wanted to.
" The woman who was arrested on the raid you supervised yesterday,
Jean Grey, is she still alive?" Sinister inquired as they reached
his lab and they walked in.
" She is. For now. I have had her brought to my chambers,"
Scott answered and Sinister gave him a look he couldn't quite place.
" Good for I have some use of her. Talk with her; convince her to
join the elite," Sinister said as he turned his big computer
screens on. Scott looked shocked at him.
" Be a part of the elite?! But..she worked for the rebels!"
Sinister turned to face him, his eyes narrowing.
" I know that. My reasons will be clear to you in time,"
Sinister said coldly. Then it was as if he realised whom he was talking
to and his features softened. " Scott, my son, you have always been
the best and strongest. Do this I ask of you and keep it between us. Let
me deal with Apocalypse on this matter if it should be relevant which I
doubt," he said more gently and put a hand on Scott's shoulder.
" It will be done, father," he promised and turned to go.
" Good, lad. Good," Sinister mumbled and Scott left. Sinister
looked after him and shook his head.
" So much potential and he doesn't even realise it. Doesn't see
that he could be the strongest of us or that he...," on his screen
two strings of DNA showed up, "...can help me change the
