Considering Logan knew the first time she slept with Piotr by scent, she's not sure she's capable of surprising him about the news that's done a great job surprising her.

That doesn't mean she won't try, as she lazily stretches out on his couch, having easily tripped the lock and broken into his room, waiting for him to show up.

"Yer lucky y'ain't one of the kids," he says when he shows up, a beat up backpack slung over one shoulder, a lit cigar in his empty hand. "I'd be-- "

He stops a couple feet from her, and to go off his expression, he's surprised alright.

"Y'don't recall nothin' I-- "

He starts moving one way, then switches directions to go another, doesn't see an ashtray either way, and finally settles for snubbing the cigar out on the wall.

"My lungs are fine," he finally says, tossing the butt aside towards a corner while closing the distance between them.

He slips the backpack off his shoulder and holds it fisted in his hand, not quite sure what to do.

"I'm guessin' I don't need t'kick anyone's ass over this."

"Thanks for givin' me the benefit of the doubt there," he says with a smirk, certain he's well past thirty at this point.

The smirk turns into something that's less smartass and more sincere when Kate brings up what he did for her before. That sure takes him back, and his smile lingers a little longer than it usually might as he thinks about it.

The smug returns and he moves to sit beside her on the couch .

"Emma'll be my gift t'you an' the baby." Because surely the baby will appreciate seeing Emma's ass-kicking, too.

"I guess it would be too much t'hope for that the kid comes out behaved," Logan says with a sigh.

He listens to her, about to make one comment when her last words make him scowl instead.

She's got him cornered.

First of all she's asking, and that damn look she's aiming at him, and all the reasons she's giving, including the threat; it's not like he can say no to any of that.

"Why didn't ya let Petey ask me?"

Piotr he could've said no to.

Arms crossed and scowling, he gives in.

He glances sideways at her, then lifts his arm to put it around her shoulders.

"Yeah, well, that's just more reason for you two not t'go anywhere."

It's a warning, and a threat, and as close as Logan's going to get to asking anyone who might be in charge to let this turn out right for them.

Kate and Peter both deserve it.

Their child deserves it.

"C'mon, I won't make that bad of a grandpa," he says to her quietly voiced apprehension, cracking a small smirk.

It fades and he pulls in a slow breath.

"Y'ain't the only one, I'm sure, but that's just a reminder that y'ain't alone, right?"

"Kate-- " He's ready to argue her, but thinks that maybe now isn't the time for it. It's enough for her to know that he disagrees, time will give her the chance to see she's wrong.

In the meantime, her preface to what she wants to tell him has him wary.

"What is it?"

That she has his promise is inherent in him asking for details.

He nods, understanding immediately.

It'll be like when she was in that prison and couldn't use her powers. And after, when she couldn't hardly stand to be touched.

"So what're we doin'?"

There's obviously going to be many challenges with having this baby, and they'll handle them all. Including this one.

He looks down at her and shakes his head.

"Darlin', y'know there's no way in hell I'm lettin' you do somethin' like that alone."

He also won't try and talk her out of it. If it's her decision to let go, his job is to follow.

Words aren't his best suit, but for Kitty he'll always try when it seems like he needs to. When she needs his words more than she needs his presence or actions.

"It ain't selfish, Kate. You're in for a long haul here, an' it makes sense t'plan for when it's over."

He thinks a moment about how to respond to what is essentially a question, though she doesn't voice it as one.

"There are some things that're just the nature of a person." And Logan knows far more about basic nature than most anyone. "We all struggle with it, but a day comes when it's just time t'give in."

Give in, not give up, and not lose.

He looks over at her, and it's understanding, not judgment in his features.

"We surrender for awhile, so that when we come back from it, we're stronger for it."

"'Course it will." And he's firm on this, too.

He chuckles to think about what they're in for with the kid, and he shakes his head.

"If yer makin' me grandpa then I'm sure gonna be as bad an influence as possible."

"You think I'd do that?" He gives her a look that's close to indignant. "I start feedin' the kid booze I'll never get him to leave me alone."

Who else would buy it for him, really?

The smoking thing draws a frown from him.

"You think anyone in this place is gonna let me forget?"

"Make sure y'let the others know that. I hear it from anyone when I'm out there they're gettin' it."

Nine months of being forced to keep his bad habits in check? Logan is going to be as moody as Kate and her hormones.

His arm tightens around her, and the mutual-ness of the feeling is returned in the simple gesture.
