Bobby winced. He had the hiccups for what was going on the
better part of an hour. His side and chest muscles were at
the point of hurting.
"Hey, sugah, what's up?" Rogue asked as she walked into the
"Not much. Got an annoying case of the -- *HIC* --
"Ya poor thing. Did ya try drinking some water?"
"Of course. Didn't work."
"What didn't work?" Jean asked as she walked into the room.
"Bobby has the hiccups. He drank water and it didn't work"
"You poor thing. Did you try holding your breath?"
"Yes. Didn't work."
"How about drinking water while holding your nose?"
"Havent tried it."
"Here sugah," Rogue said shoving a glass of water under his
Bobby took the glass in one hand and held his nose with the
other. He drank for a minute or two until the glass was empty.
"Did it work?" Jean asked.
"I don't -- *Hic* -- no."
"Maybe if we scared ya," Rogue said with an evil gleam in
"But how can you scare me if I know it's coming?"
Rogue grabbed Bobby by the shirt and threw open the back
door. She flew a few hundred feet up into the air and let
go of him. He fell screaming toward the ground. He quickly
got his wits about him, iced up and formed a sled to slide
to the ground.
"Bobby, how can Ah scare ya if you stop yourself from falling?"
Rogue said as she landed beside him.
"Instinct to save my hide took priority."
Bobby groaned. They all went back into the kitchen.
Jean produced an image of Emma Frost holding a whip and telling
Bobby she wanted to play with him in Bobby's mind.
"Ugh! Jean, no! *Hic*"
"Just thought that would scare you."
"It did. Just not -- *Hic* -- enough to get rid of
"How bout ya stand on ya head and drink water?"
"*Hic* I don't know, Rogue."
Rogue didn't give Bobby any time to think longer about it.
She grabbed him by the ankles and held him upside down. Jean
held a glass to his mouth as he started to drink.
Beast entered the kitchen at that point.
"Oh my stars and garters! What are you two doing to Bobby?"
"Were tryin ta get rid of his hiccups."
"I dont think -- *Hic* -- this is working."
Rogue set Bobby down on the ground and he got back on his
feet. Hank went to the fridge and began to pull a few items
out. He then went to the cabinets and searched around until
he found the few items he was looking for.
"Ill fix you something that should take away those persistent
hiccups," Hank said as he began to mix some of the items together
in a glass. Rogue and Jean watched him pour some cola, OJ,
vinegar, water and lemon juice in the glass.
"Eww -- that looks like it will taste disgusting," Rogue
said making a face.
"Most medicines arent supposed to taste good," Hank said
with a wide grin.
Bobby watched in horror as Hank mixed the ingredients. Hank
handed him the glass with the foul concoction in it. Bobby
took the glass and peered into it. He looked at Hank.
"This will -- *Hic* -- work?"
"Just drink it, Popscicle."
Bobby took a gulp and began to drink the mixture. Jean and
Rogue watched and made faces as Bobby drank the liquid.
"I think it -- *Hic* -- nevermind, it didn't work."
"It wasn't supposed to. I just wanted to see if you would
drink it," Hank said as he began to howl with laughter.
Bobby formed a few snowballs and chucked them at Hank.
"That was for putting the blonde hair dye in my shampoo,"
Hank was barely able to get out between the howls of laughter
and trying to avoid the snowballs.
"Hank!" Jean and Rogue both exclaimed.
"And that is my cue to leave. Parting is such sweet sorrow,"
he said as he got pelted in the face with a snowball.
"This means -- *Hic* -- war, McCoy!" Bobby yelled
after Hank as he left the kitchen. "Now what?" he asked turning
back to Jean and Rogue.
"I dont know. Rogue you have any more ideas?"
"One," she said grabbing the jar of peanut butter from the
cabinet. Rogue grabbed a spoon and handed the jar and spoon
to Bobby. "Start eatin, sugah."
Bobby grabbed the jar and spoon from Rogue and began to eat
a few spoonfuls of peanut butter. After a three spoonfuls
he stopped. Nothing happened.
"I think so. Thanks Rogue and you too Jean," Bobby said handing
the jar back to Rogue and throwing the spoon in the sink.
"Now its time to go get even with Blue-boy."
Rogue and Jean just laughed as they watched Bobby leave the
