The X-men belong to Marvel.
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 kitchen.
"Not much. Got an annoying case of the -- *HIC* -- hiccups."
"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 nose.
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 her eye.
"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 these."
"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
"Most medicines arent supposed to taste good," Hank said with a wide
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
"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
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
"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 kitchen.
