Disclaimer for the whole story: I don't own The 4400 and any characters you recognize.
Italicized are what happened in the episode.
AN: I am redoing this story because I wrote this years ago and there are things I want to change. So here we go again.
AN 2: The first few chapters will be the last episodes of season 3. In the chapters when I am following the episode timeline I'm not going to write every scene from the episode in there. If I leave out a scene from an episode it means that the scene happened in the story but exactly the same as in the episode so it happened "off screen". I'm only going to be writing the scenes that I change around or that I make up entirely. And any scenes from the episodes relating to the April/Diana/Ben storyline just forget about. Since the vision wasn't about Ben that storyline doesn't exist, and April and Ben stay together.
Diana was eating some ice cream when Maia came into the kitchen.
"Mommy?" Maia asked.
Diana jumped a little and turned to face her daughter.
"Oh, you scared me." Diana said.
"Sorry. I couldn't sleep." Maia replied.
"Oh, well why don't you come on in? I'll make you a bowl of ice cream." Diana said, grabbing a bowl out of the cupboards.
"Our family is gonna get bigger now." Maia said.
"Oh sweetie. Don't get too attached of the idea of your Aunt April living here in Seattle." Diana told her, while getting a spoon from the dishwasher.
"You know how she can be." Diana reminded Maia.
"That's not it." Maia said, as Diana set the items on the island.
Diana started scooping the ice cream into a bowl.
"You're gonna get married." Maia told her.
Diana swung her head around and looked at her daughter.
"I saw it." Maia continued. "Not too long from now. You look the same when it happens." Maia explained.
"I'm getting married?" Diana was trying to process it.
"Isn't it great?" Maia asked, smiling as she dug into her ice cream.
"You're gonna be so happy." Maia informed her, still smiling.
Diana walked around to the other side of the island to be across from her daughter. She leaned over the island towards Maia.
"Okay. Well, um, did you happen to see who the lucky guy was?" Diana asked, as she took a bite of her ice cream.
Maia started poking her ice cream with her spoon, and avoiding eye contact with Diana.
"Maia, who am I gonna marry?" Diana asked her daughter.
Maia hesitated to answer.
"Do I know him?" Diana asked.
"Yeah. We both now him." Maia answered.
"Maia sweetie, who is it?" Diana asked once again.
"Tom." Maia answered.
Diana's spoon slipped out of her hand and fell into her dish with a clang.
"Mommy?" Maia asked, seeing the blank expression on Diana's face.
"I'm gonna marry Tom?" Diana asked, more to herself than to Maia.
"Yep, you're gonna have a husband and I'm gonna have a dad." Maia said, smiling again.
"Tom and I are just friends, and he is with Alana." Diana told her daughter.
"Well I guess they don't stay together." Maia replied.
Diana opened her mouth to say something but just then the phone rang. Diana walked over to the counter and flipped open her phone.
"Hello." Diana answered the phone.
"Oh, hey Tom." Diana couldn't believe his timing.
Diana ended her call with Tom and turned her attention back to her daughter.
"I have to go to work Sweetie. The babysitter is going to have to come watch you." Diana informed her daughter.
"Alright mommy. Say hi to Tom for me." Maia replied with a smile.
Diana had met Tom and Shawn at a homeless community because they had gotten a lead on Jordan Collier. They didn't fine him but they did find out where he spent some of his time. They decided that there was nothing more they could do tonight so they all headed home. Diana could not stop thinking about Maia's prediction the whole night. She cared about Tom, but she never saw herself marrying him. She thought back to when she had first met him. He was so arrogant towards her, but now they were like best friends. She then thought about how Tom was willing to kill himself to save her. He was there for her when she needed him and vice versa. She remembered how scared she was when Tom was in the water fighting with Darren Piersahl. And when she saw the body float to the top and thought it was Tom, she was terrified that she lost him. She wouldn't know what she would do without Tom, but did that mean that she loved him?
