Dana Scully's apartment
After he left I cried for what felt like a week but when I finally got p from the spot on the floor that I laid since Mulder was gone I looked at my watch and saw that only half an hour had passed.
How did we get to this situation? Mulder drunk at my house saying things to me that I never thought he was capable of and doing the only thing I was absolutely certain that he would never do, he crushed my heart and I was afraid that I would never get it together again.
I got up and decided to face my new demons, our new demons. Went into my bedroom and I changed to go straight to Mulder's house. I decided to go with jeans and a shirt, since things could go very wrong when I got there.
I drove to his house awfully slowly thinking what I would say and picturing different scenarios in my head. Flashes of our argument earlier kept going through my head and I couldn't seem to keep them away.
When I got there I didn't imagine what happened, but when it did I was ready to shoot someone. She was there, she opened his door and she thanked him for the quickie they just had. Now I stood there hoping that he would say something that made this situation better, but he didn't and the only thing I thought of doing was storm out of there.
When I was near the elevator someone caught me by the arm and I turned around and saw exactly who I already knew it was.
'Scully, please stay and hear me out. Just this one time. Please, com in with me.'
'Mulder, stop! I just want to go home and forget everything that happened today. I don't want to hear whatever it is that you have to say. I came here to try and talk to you thinking that you had sobered up a little. But no, I come here and who do I run into Mulder? HER! So don't try and talk me out of this because this time you wont be the victim, Mulder. I user to think of you as somebody that would never, ever hurt me. Ever!'
Again I had my cheeks already wet from the tears that I had no way of stopping. My heart was clenching from the pain I was feeling now. How could he do this to me? Why would he do this to me?
'Scully, I know I've hurt you but now I want to make it up to you, I want to make things right. Please come in and hear what I have to say to you. If you don't like what I have to say you can shoot me.'
We were in the middle of his hallway and he stood there pleading me to come in with him with those puppy eyes that only he knew how to do. I cave. I nod to him and he led me to his apartment by the hand. I was standing in front of his door and he was behind me.
'Let's go sit on the couch, Scully.'
Sure, Mulder.' My voice came out cold and I wasn't a bit worried about what he would think of that fact.
'Look, Scully. I'm not going to start this by apologizing myself because I know that what I did to you was wrong. I have some things to say to you and now I'm all sober to do that with a conscious mind…'
He took my hand on his and I let him. I was way too fragile to say or do something to stop his act. When he started to talk he held my gaze with his eyes and wouldn't let me look away from those warming brown chocolate eyes.
Since that day that you walked into my office I didn't have a clue of what I was getting myself into. Through the years of our partnership I felt myself becoming more and more protective of you. That feeling got more and more powerful after I got you back. I almost made a deal with the devil when you were in your deathbed. One night, when you were still in the hospital I went to see you. I didn't have the heart to wake you and I just stood there crying and holding your hand, praying that you were going to be ok, that you weren't going to leave me for good.'
He never told me that and hearing him saying those things to me right now made my heart melt and my fury subsided. I was in love with this beautiful and flawed man that was standing right in front of me. I had my eyes focused on our entwined fingers…they fit perfectly with each other and I couldn't help but to think that all the rest would fit just as perfect together.
We had our moments, Scully. That one time when we were lost in that forest and you sang to me, when we danced listening to Cher no less, when Diana came back and I didn't realize how it had affected you, us. And that's what I'm sorry for. I put you through hell and I told you that I would be there every time and now I wasn't because I had my head too stuffed in my ass to notice what was going on around me. I love you, Scully. You're the reason that I wake up in the morning, you're the first thing on my mind when I wake up and the last when I go to sleep.'
I was crying again. He loved me. I could see in his eyes that this was the truth in its more pure way. I raised my other hand letting him holding the one that he was holding before and I caressed his cheek.
'I realized that you were my life or that I was madly in love with you?'
I didn't know how to answer that question. Both, the first, the latter? I just looked at him. He laughed a goofy laugh and that made my heart do a triple jump.
'Doesn't matter. It was probably in the same occasion that I realized both. It was when you were in the hospital, dying of cancer and I didn't know what to do to save you. I even prayed that someone would listen to my selfishness and no let you die.'
Tears were falling freely and I couldn't hold myself anymore. I let go of his hand and brought his face to meet mine and I kissed him. God, I kissed him.
God, Scully was kissing me. That was something even more incredible than aliens walking around the Earth.
We deepened our kiss and soon our tongue were dueling inside our mouths. The taste was heaven. We were in heaven. Love was pouring from both of us and it was something amazing. When we had to stop for air we rested our foreheads together.
'What now, Scully?'
She laughed the most hearted laugh of all times.
'I love you, Mulder.'
'I love you too, Scully. More than you think.'
