A Day Full of Discoveries
Remy LeBeau, wearing nothing but a towel wrapped around his hips, stopped dead in his tracks from the training room to the shared showers. Holding his breath, he listened tensely and found he hadn't been wrong. There was indeed someone.. singing!
His curiousity awoken, he tiptoed along the white corridor that lead to the room with the showers. He was near enough now to hear the words clearly.
/O Freunde, nicht diese Toene!
Sondern lasst uns angenehmere anstimmen
He didn't understand a word the person was singing, but the voice sounded familiar.
/Freude, schoener Goetterfunken,
Tochter aus Elysium/
Yes, quite familiar. But this couldn't be. Remy simply didn't *want* to recognize that voice.
/Wir betreten feuertrunken,
Himmlische, dein Heiligtum/
By now he had reached the doorframe to the showers. One more step and his eyes would tell him what his mind already had. Taking in a deep breath and bracing himself to whatever sight there was to come, he stepped around the corner --
-- and stared at Logan's (incredibly sexy) naked back. For once in his life, Logan hadn't noticed him coming.
Remy decided to stare a little longer (as if he had been able to do something else) and listened to the deep, amazingly good-sounding voice of his comrade.
/Deine Zauber binden wieder,
Was die Mode streng geteilt;
Alle Menschen werden Brueder,
Wo dein sanfter Fluegel weilt/
Logan was still far too lost in his solo to notice him, so Remy - slowly turning very red - decided it was either time to draw attention to himself or just leave unnoticed while he still could.
He decided for the latter since he was far too embarrassed to look Logan in the eye right now, but of course that moment the shower was switched off. The Cajun gasped in shock, causing Logan to whirl around.
For a long long time, they just stared at each other. If Remy hadn't been far too shocked, he would have realized what an incredible honor it was to see Wolverine speechless.
"Uh .. ah.. " Remy finally said, trying hard not to let an appreciating look wander down the other man's body, "Gambit didn't know you could sing, mon ami.."
A mischievous grin slowly appeared on Logan's face while he eyed Remy from head to toe.
"And I didn' know ya'd go anywhere without yer coat, Gumbo."
