Scully's Point of view:
"I love you." he said simply. What! Did he just say that? Mulder, my partner, just told me that he loved me!
"Oh brother." I silently whispered, turning away from him, trying to hide my blushing. I swiftly walked out of the room, closing the door behind me.
i walked past Skinner and the others. why did this have to happen to me now? I was finally coming to terms with my emotions for him, and now he throws this load on me. Great! Just great!
What I don't get, is why I acted the way I did when I told him. was it because I truly loved Mulder back? Or was it because I didn't want to hurt my only friend?
Gah! This whole thing is making my head hurt. Damn you, Mulder. Damn you for making me feel this way.
Mulder's Point of view:
I have to say it. I have to tell her that I love her.
When I was telling the past Scully what to do, I had a thought that she wouldn't listen to me. That I would never see her again, because of her own stupid pride!
I would never see that ginger hair of hers again, or have her constantly reasoning with my ideas. I wouldn't see her smile or hear her laugh. though I rarely heard it now.
I would never have her back again, or walk side by side with her ever again. And the worst thing was that if this Scully didn't listen to me I would never get the chance to tell the other Scully how much I love her.
So this was it, this was my time to tell her that simple sentence that would change our partnership and freindship as we know it.
I looked up into her eyes and realized that after I spoke these words the look she was giving me now would change, for better or for worse.
"I love you." I said loud enough for only us to hear. She turned her head and whispered something before walking briskly out the door.
For a moment I swear I saw a glimmer of lust in her eyes and ebaressment in her rosey cheeks.
