It goes like this.

***

"Kitty is being moved to 42."

Piotr breaks the War Room table in half when they tell him.

"I am going," he says and is already out in the main hallway before Hank can stop him.

"It isn't that simple, Pete," Scout tells him.

He wonders if he fantasized that he broke Scout's nose, or if Emma short circuited his brain when he did. Because he doesn't remember walking outside to rip up half the forest.

"I won't let you," he tells Captain America.

"You don't have a choice, son," and he knows he punches Steve Rogers through a wall. Captain America can take a punch. He doesn't have to hold back.

"I won't let you! I promised!"

"We need her! There are other people that need saving just as much as her!"

They're grappling, and even when he can tell Rogers is pulling some of his punches, he still pushes. When Piotr manages to get the other man in a headlock, he hisses in in his ear, "Logan would kill you if he was here."

Then there was the Black Panther, Spiderman, Luke Cage, and Storm holding him at bay. Ororo with her hands on his chest, almost pleading as she commands him, "Little brother, little brother, stop this. Stop."

***

He is seating at a table, across from Emma Frost.

"We need her, Peter. We have to do this."

"You can't."

"Why?"

"Because she's--she's--"

"She isn't your wife, Peter."

Piotr replies by slam his fist on the table, and it crashes to the floor in a dozen pieces. Emma crosses her legs.

"We don't have the codes to open either of the gates to the Negative Zone. But, we have the location, time, and date they are transferring Kitty to 42. It's a trap. And we have to use it if we want to save her and the dozens of others already imprisoned. We don't have a choice here, and you know it. She knows it. You're being unreasonable."

Piotr doesn't say a word.

***

He never was very good at keeping promises.
