Prologue

Her blood was on his hands when he carried her outside towards the man
waiting with his car. He would take over her body and make sure she
got her final resting place. But he was the one that killed her. He
saw the blood and realized what he had done.

Before, it had all seemed strange. Unreal. Out of this world. But he
saw clearly now that he had done that what he had feared others to do
for so long now.
He stared at her slim forms and the shadows on her face. She looked so
pale, so innocent and so sweet. And now she lay in his arms and she
was dead.
'Put her in the backseat of the car,' the man ordered, opening the
door for him so that he could carefully put her in.

The man closed the door, satisfied with what he saw. Then he turned
towards him and said, 'Now join Dominique and the others.'

He nodded and left, like a puppet following the pulled lines.

But everything inside of him screamed for her. And he knew he would
not get the salvation that Dominique had preached for so long now.
For him, nothing would matter ever again.

Because he, Mulder, had killed Scully.
