Author's Notes: Okay this is my first just X-Files fic. I usually write
JAG fics, so I'm not used to writing sci-fi stuff . . . of course this fic
doesn't have any, just saying, if I write more X-Files stuff, I'm not very
good at it. Oh, and I'm writing this under the impression that Mulder is
the dad. Okay. . . I'm babbling aren't I? I'll just get on with the story
now. . .
Disclaimer: Scully, Mulder, and William don't belong to me. I just like
playing with them. The wonderful Chris Carter owns them. The song 'Save
Tonight' doesn't belong to me either, but to Eagle Eye Cherry. . . I think
anyways. . .
Scully had just put William down for the night, and was looking forward to
going to sleep. She had just returned to work yesterday, and already the
stress from work and having a baby was getting to her. She had just
changed into her nightgown when she heard a soft knock on her door.
Thankfully, Scully saw that William hadn't woken up. She quietly padded to
the door, looking through the peephole. "Oh my God." She gasped, looking
through the small hole one more time to make sure he was still there.
She flung open the door, to reveal a disheveled looking Fox Mulder.
"Mulder what are . . ." Before Scully could finish her sentence, Mulder
had leaned in and began to kiss her soundly.
Fight the break at dawn
Tomorrow I'll be gone'
When they finally broke apart, Scully stepped aside so that Mulder could
get into the apartment. Briefly they looked over to their son, to make
sure that he hadn't woken up. "Mulder what are you doing here?" Scully
"I missed you Scully. I had to see you and little William." Mulder said
simply, taking Scully into his arms. "I need you Dana." He said whispered
quietly into her hair. She nodded as they slowly made their way to the
'There's a log on the fire
and it burns like me for you
Tomorrow comes with one desire..
to take me away'
The next morning, Scully woke up with a smile on her face, feeling the man
next to her stir. Mulder wrapped his arms around her waist as she turned
to face him. Their lips brushed briefly before William cried out. Scully
sighed, and got out of bed.
"It's okay sweetheart. Shhhh, please William, just give Mommy and Daddy a
few more minutes, please." Scully whispered as she picked their little
boy. Mulder came into the room, and took William from his mother.
"Hi there William. I need to talk to your mommy okay? Give us just a few
minutes William." As if he could understand his father, William
immediately quieted down. He lowered his son into the bassinet, and turned
to Scully. "I have to go soon, you know that don't you?"
Scully nodded sadly. "I know Mulder." She lifted her head, and looked
into his eyes. "Why did you come here?" She asked, knowing how dangerous
it was to come back here.
"I wanted to see you Dana. And," He said, reaching into his pocket,
searching for something. "To ask you something." He said, pulling a small
velvet box out of his pocket. "Dana Katherine Scully, will you marry me?"
He asked, opening the small box to reveal a square cut diamond on a
"Oh Fox!" She gasped, looking at the ring. She looked up, straight into
his eyes. "Of course I'll marry you." Mulder smiled as he slid the ring
onto her finger.
"It's not safe to get married now, but someday Dana, I swear, I will make
you my wife." Mulder sad, kissing her tenderly.
"I love you Mulder." Scully whispered when they finally broke apart.
"I love you too Dana." He said, lightly stroking her cheek. She looked up
at him sadly, sensing what he was about to say. "I have to go now Dana,
but I'll see you and William soon. We'll be a normal family." He said
smiling. Scully laughed at the thought of anyone describing them as a
Despite the brief moment of levity, Scully could feel the tears welling up.
Mulder saw this, and murmured to her. "Please don't cry Dana. You know
that I don't want to leave. It's just too dangerous for us to be together
right now though."
'It ain't easy to say goodbye
Darling please don't start to cry
'Cause girl you know I've got to go
and Lord I wish it wasn't so'
"I know Mulder. I know. Now go before someone finds out that you're here
with me." Scully said, with more conviction than she felt. She smiled as
Mulder went over and said goodbye to his son. He came back, and Scully
found herself enveloped in his arms.
"I love you Dana. No matter what happens, know that I always will."
Mulder whispered into her hair. Scully nodded, and their lips met for the
last time. "Bye Dana. Take care of yourself and William. I'll see you
soon." He promised.
"I love you Fox." She opened the door to her apartment. He turned to look
at her one more time.
"I love you too Dana." With that, he turned around and headed towards the
elevator. Dana leaned against the doorframe, watching him go. She watched
until he stepped into the elevator, and turned back to William.
"Someday William." She whispered to him.
'Tomorrow comes to take me away
I wish that I, that I could stay
But girl you know I've got to go, oh
and Lord I wish it wasn't so'
