A Sinister Father

It was a hot Summer day. Kurt Wagner was practicing his sword fighting when Pete Wisdom came into the room. "Kurt, ya have a visitor down in the lobby." He then left the room without another word.

Wondering who it could be, Kurt put his swords up and went down to the lobby. He stopped in his tracks when he saw who his visitor was. "What do you want, Mystique?"

With false sincereity in her voice, Raven Darkholme replied, "It is time that you learn who your father is, my son. Come sit down beside me." She patted the seat next to her with a wry grin.

Noting the grin on his mother's face, Kurt answered, "Thanks, but I'll stand."

"Have it your way," Raven replied coldly. She then opened an album of pictures. "This is us in Germany; your father is taking the picture." She flipped the page. "This is a picture of your father and me."

Kurt's mind raced at the sight of the man in the picture. He was determined not to jump to conclusions as he asked, "Do you have a better picture?"

"I've only got one more," Raven replied, turning the page. "This one is of the three of us."

"That's impossible!" Kurt protested.

"What is?" Mystique calmly asked.

"The guy who's supposed to be my father looks too much like Mr.Sinister to be my father!" Kurt answered in a rush of words.

Raven's eyes met her son's. "That's because Sinister is your father, Kurt."

Kurt couldn't believe his ears. His jaw dropped open, and he sank down onto the couch. Sinister was his father?!? After all this time of wanting so badly to know the identity of his father, Kurt now knew who his father was - but wished he didn't know!
