Two years after the Meta had been defeated Relocated and many more adventures things had slowed down in Valhalla. Sheila had been transferred to a robot body which made her practically human, Tucker was back now revealed as now the new Freelancer Florida, Caboose had done nothing much, Wash was living in Valhalla hiding from the Director who now out of jail, Maine was in a mental hospital, the Chairmen was trying to prove the Director guilty, Grif was avoiding Sarge because of an attempted assignation, Simmons was continuing to suck up to Sarge while planning a total team takeover, Sarge was planning how to kill Grif without them knowing it was him, Donut is doing his usual, Doc was back at duty staying with the Reds, Sister was trying to get Tucker to… I think you know. Anyway, Church had finally come to terms about being an A.I. and Tex was back in which case Church had insisted they try their relationship again.
"I like eggs." Caboose quoted as Church boiled eggs on the stove.
"You have to be the dumbest person in the universe. Your like twenty three and your coloring Easter eggs." Church pointed out his arms crossed leaned over the stove.
"I like Easter." Then Church's light Blue button up shirt caught fire.
"What the hell is it this time Caboose?"
"Your shirt is on fire." He turned and looked and started swatting,
"HOLY SHIT!!!!! PUT IT OUT!!!!!"
"STOP DROP AND ROLL!!!" Church drop with a thud and rolled and put it out as he stopped Tex walked in wearing Black skinny jeans, Black socks and a tight black turtle neck. He looked up at her as she stood with her arms crossed above him looking at him.
"What the hell did you do this time?"
"Caught myself on fire."
"My shirt got in one of the burners that must have been hot or on."
"You're a retard. Get up." He sat up kissing her on the cheek then looking at Caboose.
"Church you need to call Tucker he won't answer any of my calls."
"Something about eggs and a prank."
"I want you to punch Tucker when he gets back here."
"And Caboose your eggs are done."
"YEAH!!!" Church left them on the stove.
"Church we still need to pack."
"I'm still nervous about going back to Earth for a vacation."
"You have nothing to worry about. We have a month or more to get settled into our new apartment enjoy the Earth then come back."
"I'm nervous about us moving into an apartment together."
"Minus all these dumb asses it'll be the same as here."
"I know. I just have a strange feeling about it."
"It'll be fine sweetie."
"I hope so."
"Tex are you okay?" Church asked her as she stiffened in their bed.
"I'm fine just a little freaked out."
"Why is that?"
"I had a creepy dream."
"About what?" He sat up to see her face.
"Its nothing." She turned and rested her head on his chest, he laid down putting his arm around her.
"No please. Tell me."
"It was like bugs were crawling under my skin in my dream and I was panicking and I ran for you, but you disappeared."
"Well that's weird."
"I know. I'm going back to sleep."
"Night. Love you."
"Love you to."
As Church drifted to sleep his nightmares rolled in in a hurricane.
It was storming at Blue base thunder roared lighting struck and the wind howled loud as he awoke in his bed to Tex shaking him.
"I heard something."
"What did it sound like?"
"Like an animal growl?"
"Give me a second." He got up and walked to the door in his cotton Blue pants opened it up to find nothing then closed it. He turned around to see her sitting in her Gray pants and Black top when suddenly he saw a Black hand reach out from the shadows.
"TEX!!!" It grabbed her and pulled her back.
"Church!!!" He ran to the shadowed corner to find a regular corner and punched the wall.
"TEX!!!! Where are you!!!" Suddenly he woke up to the sound of thunder and lightning. He sat up breathing heavy and sweaty as hell. He continued to breath heavy as he touched his head then noticing Tex sleeping next to him. He jumped up and ran to the corner that in his dream she got pulled into touching it then into bed again waking her up.
"Church are you okay?"
"Tex I had the weirdest nightmare in history."
"Tell me about it." She sat up and looked at him concerned.
"No. Its okay. I'm fine. I'm just going to go get a drink of water."
"Okay. If you want to talk, I'll talk."
"I know. Thanks." He kissed her then got up went to the kitchen as he entered he saw someone or something in the fridge at midnight and grabbed a knife. When the door closed he saw Wash.
"Hey Wash." He sat it down.
"What was that knife for?"
"I was afraid it wasn't you in the fridge."
"And who did you think it was?"
"I have no idea just had a freaky nightmare."
"Nothing just getting a cup of water."
"Why you out here Wash?" Church got a cup and poured some water as Wash sat at the island.
"Just having trouble sleeping."
"Oh. I'm going back to bed."
"Okay. Night Church."
"Night Wash." He strolled back to their room drinking the water slowly he strolled in to find her still sitting up for him.
"What are you doing up still?"
"Church I want to talk."
"Tex I told you. I don't want to talk about my nightmare."
'I know, but I think you should."
"I'm fine. I don't need to now lets go back to sleep." He laid in bed next to her wearing his now cold dog tags and Blue cotton pants. She laud her head on his chest again.
"This isn't done. Tomorrow."
"No. We have that damn Easter party and there is no way in hell your making a scene in front of the Reds."
"Well we will talk, tomorrow, tonight, or even next week your talking."
Church walked out to the kitchen where Tucker and Wash were. Wash was reading the newspaper from Earth and drinking coffee, Tucker was eating scrambled eyes and drinking coffee.
"Hey Church. How are you doing on this fine morning?" Tucker said gleefully.
"Fine. Tex was riding me ass at midnight. Do you know what its like to argue with that women at midnight?"
"No, but probably not fun. Why were you arguing?"
"She wanted me to tell her about a nightmare I had."
"Oh. What kind of nightmare?"
"I don't want to get into it with my girlfriend and I certainly don't want to with you."
"Why not? What's so bad about talking about your dreams?"
"Nightmares. Because I hate to open up about that stuff."
"Why not talk to Tex then?"
"Dude I hate talking to her. Even more about dreams or nightmares because she thinks they tell you about the future or some shit."
"I think they do to."
"Well then fuck you Tucker." Church grabbed some coffee, made a bagel, and put some peanut butter on it and sat down at the kitchen table.
"Well fuck you to Church." Tex walked out.
"What is it this time?"
"I see you managed to avoid fighting today."
"So far so good."
"Well I hope I have good luck with Church today to." She poured coffee into a mug and walked over to the kitchen table and sat down.
"Morning sweetie." Church kissed her before she responded.
"Morning. Your not off the hook you know."
"Tex I told you. I don't want to talk."
"But I do. Church I tell you everything."
"I know. By the way big improvement from before."
"Stop changing the subject."
"YES you are."
"Listen you made me tell you about my dream and why can't you tell me yours?"
"Because I have no desirer to."
"Why? I thought we were getting serous."
"We are. That's why you need to respect my privacy."
"We need to share things."
"Yes we do. Stuff like, a bed, a room, an apartment, a drink, our job problems, and a couch or furniture."
"Church your not getting my point."
"Yes I am."
"No your not. I want us to share our fears our wants our worries."
"You mean stuff that I want to keep to myself?"
"God damn it."
