Moms and their Daughters: Superhero Addition - X-Men

Parent Chapter

" have to stop calling me while I'm at work," Rachel Grey said annoyingly while flipping through a spreadsheet of numbers. She was an accountant for a small firm near Westchester NY -- the place she had been raised. Her parents divorced when she was sixteen and, as the oldest, it was Rachel's responsibility to help keep the family together. Now at twenty-two, recently graduated from college, Rachel is still taking care of her family -- especially her mother.

"You haven't visited in a while," Jean said, a hint of worry in her voice. "You pick the twins up from soccer, take Esme to art lessons, and go to Celeste's dance recitals. But you never try to visit me anymore...If it weren't for Emma, I think I'd be in a pretty bad place. I'm only forty but I feel like such a hermit."

Rachel sighed. Her father's cheating and her parents' subsequent divorce ruined her mother. She was in tatters the day Scott finally moved out. Rachel was glad to see her father go. He emotionally and physically abused her mother for years...but Jean was a needy woman and she needed a lover's attention -- a fact that had garnered a string of bad boyfriends.

"Who's Emma?" Rachel asked, a little surprised. "You've never mentioned her before."

There was a pause. "Oh, just a neighbor. She's divorced too, with a little girl around Celeste's age. We met when they were playing on the playground. We've become...close. We have a lot in common."

"Oh, well that's nice," Rachel replied. "I'm glad you have a friend, Mom."

"But she doesn't replace you, Rachel darling," Jean pressed. "Please come and visit me sometime. I miss you."

"Maybe, when I get a break from work. I'm currently swamped."

"And I'm your mother," Jean replied curtly. "And I love you."

"Love you too, Mom. Gotta get back to work, I'll drop by when I can." Without another lengthy goodbye that she was sure Jean was preparing, Rachel hung up the phone.


A week later, Rachel pulled up to her mother's house. She thought it was the perfect time for a little mother-daughter visit since the four other kids were at their father's house for the weekend. Rachel knew her mother would be lonely and looking for a little comfort.

Walking up to the front door, she heard some strange noises coming from inside the house. They sounded sort of like...moaning. Did her mother really have some guy over on the day they were supposed to have lunch together? That would be a new low -- even for Jean.

A little angry, Rachel knocked loudly on the door. The moaning stopped and Rachel heard someone scampering to the door. Her mother, dressed in lacy robe with mussed hair and makeup, opened it.

"Uhh...hi, mom," Rachel said awkwardly. "Did you forget about our plans?"

Jean's eyebrows shot up as she tried to fix her wavy red hair. "Was that today, honey? Oh, Rachel, I'm so sorry, I...well, I was..."

"Jeannie?" a voice called. Both Jean and Rachel turned to see a beautiful blonde woman walking down the stairs. "Is this Rachel?"

"That's Emma," Jean explained as the woman walked over. Rachel couldn't help but notice the woman was similarly frazzled and was wearing a big t-shirt that definitely belonged to her mother. What was going on here?

"Rachel," Jean started, clearly a little hesitant. "I've been wanting to tell you something." The redheaded mother grabbed the blonde woman's hand and shot her a smile. "Emma and I are...together. Romantically."
