Hi, I had this story hidden in one of my notbooks for a while now. I decided I would upload it and see what you guys think of it. I will still upload more chapters for my other story "The Promise", as well as this knew story. This story starts five months after the ending of Season Two of Dark Angel. I loved the show and I was upset that it was canceled. I really thought this show deserved a third season. But anyway, I don't own any of the characters, nor do I own Alec ( wish I did ;) ). They are all property of there creaters. I however do own the two original characters. One of them is Chuck a ten year old boy. He's an X6. The other will be a girl who is seventeen years old. I will reveal her name in the next chapter. I may change the name I had originally written, not really sure yet :) And I will also clue you in on what she is. Anyway, here is my new story. Season 3 idea. The title is from one of my favorite slow songs by Sia. Enjoy ^-^

~~~Five Months Later after the end of Season two Dark Angel~~~

A group of young teenagers walked through the entrance of Terminal City. They looked scared and lost. Alec and Joshua stood back watching as new X-series arrived to a place they have come to call "Home".

"Looks like we got a bigger group this time," Alec said.

"More, bigger family," Joshua said happy.

Joshua always loved seeing new arrivals at Terminal City. Alec smiled at the look on Joshua's face. It was of a small child happy to see a new toy. He was glad Joshua could still have that kind of innocence inside him. Even after everything that has happened. Alec then heard footsteps coming from behind and turned to see who it was. He already knew who it was. He hated to emit it, but it was like he could sense her coming a mile away. Almost like a Bitch Alert, to him anyway.

"Hey, Maxie. Coming to greet the welcome wagon?" Alec said with his signature smirk at the end.

Max looked at Alec and smacked him on the head.


"Stop playing around, Alec. Is anyone hurt?" Max asked about the new arrivals.

"No. They all seem fine. Mole's setting them up with Brooke in the infirmary." Alec answered.

"Okay. Keep me posted. Hey, have you seen Logan?" Max asked.

"No," Joshua answered.

"Why?" Alec asked.

"Is it time for his supercharged vitamins?" Alec said smiling.

"No, you ass. I just needed to go over the new developments we're establishing." Max said walking away.

"Dude, you'd think they'd finally stop acting like a couple of love sick teenagers." Alec said.

"Love sick? Max and Logan sick?" Joshua asked.

"Yeah, it's called 'Stupidity Disease'. Stay faraway so you don't catch anything, Josh." Alec said leaving.

Logan was fixing up new equipment that Alec had found for his Eye's only office. Alec walked into the office and saw Logan connecting wires to the computer.

"How's it going" he asked him.

Logan turned to look at Alec.

"I still need some cable wires to connect the voice recorder," Logan said.

"I could go see what I could fine," Alec said.

"Thanks, but am okay." Logan said.

Alec noticed he still wouldn't look at him. This had been going on to far. Logan still felt threaten by Alec, in some way. Logan already knew about Max's lie about them being together. Yet, he still didn't like him. This was fine by Alec, because he didn't give a shit about Logan either.

"Well, I'll just let you get back to your work. Just try not to burn the projector again," Alec said leaving.

Alec was walking towards his new apartment in Terminal City. As he closed the door to his place, he looked around it. He didn't know how much more of this he could take. He hated being hunted down for being what he was. If he could have chosen to be someone else, he would do it in a heartbeat. Alec walked over to his small bar and took a bottle of scotch and poured some to a glass. He took the glass and went to sit down on the sofa chair by the window. He took a sip from his glass and looked outside the window. It was dark out. But the thing that always caught his eye was the moon. He was fascinated by it. It was his light from the darkness. He had been this way ever since he left Manticore. He felt lost. He felt alone. Today, of all days, he felt like shit. Alec took another sip of his glass of scotch. He looked down into the glass and swirled the liquid around. He had left behind his past. He had tried his best. He needed to just forget. Alec smiled sadly. There was no happiness for him. He would never find what Max and Logan had. He prayed he didn't. With the way those two were acting, he would just end up shooting himself in the head. Which, he had already tried many nights before. But not tonight. Tonight he celebrated the one thing he knew he would top shooting himself. The one thing he hated with all his heart, because it reminded him of Manticore everyday and everynight.

"Happy Birthday, Alec ." Alec whispered.

~~~~~A mile away from Terminal City~~~~~

"Did you get everything?"

"Yes, Chuck. I got everything."

"Thanks for helping me. I don't know what would have happened to me if you didn't." Chuck said.

Chuck was a ten year old boy. He had been running from a group of people who figured out he was an X-series. Or what they called him, a "Freak". He had hid in an abandon building but that's where he found her. She was from Manticor. Only thing was she was different from the rest of the X-series. But he didn't mind. She was had become his friend since he arrived there two months ago. They had grown close, like a brother and sister.

"It's okay. I won't let anything happen to you. But we have to get you to safety. And I know just the place. I've been trying to get there for over five months now. But it's hard with the way things have been around here."

"But, what if they don't….you know let us in?" Chuck asked scared.

"They'll let you in…."

"But what about you?" Chuck asked.

"Me too. I hope."

~~~Well, I hope you liked the first chapter to my new story. Please review and let me know what you think. :) ~~~
