Hi, there fellow Salt fans! This is my first salt fan fiction, and hopefully I did the characters justice! I fell in love with this movie the first time I saw it, because I loved all the raw emotion that you felt from the character Evelyn Salt.

Dedication: To my mother, who took me and my friend Emily to see Salt… And then to see it again a week later!

Disclaimer: I do not own the rights to the movie Salt, because if I did I would be jumping for joy, not sitting here writing. I also do not own the rights to the song Love Remains the Same by Gavin Rossedale.

Love Remains the same

I knew something was wrong the minute that I stepped into that interrogation room.

Orlov, the man that made me the horrible killer that I am today, was sitting across from me. I wanted to kill him the moment that he mentioned my wedding ring.

During our entire conversation I restrained myself from snapping his neck, right then and there. I kept a calm and cool mask, while on the inside I was freaking out. I knew that he didn't want me to be married, and I knew that he would threaten mike because of it, but I never thought that they would kill him. This was because Mike wasn't part of my plan.

My whole entire world was crashing down around me. The life I had made for myself, my job, my home, my husband, all destroyed in front of my eyes. By those that I used to call family.

When I told Peabody that they took everything from me and I would kill every single one of them for it, I meant it.

That is why I'm sitting in a New York hotel room, nursing my third glass of red wine, winding down from my earlier kill, and awaiting Peabody's call.

I reach over and turn on the stereo to a random station. At least I can have music to preoccupy my time.

"Next up on 109.6 is Gavin Rossdale's Love Remains the Same"

The acoustic intro began and I sunk down into one of the comfy chairs in my room. I started to think about Mike, how sweet, charming, loving he was. That's when a beautiful song came on.

A thousand times I've seen you standing
gravity like a lunar landing
make me want to run till i find you
shut the world away from here, drift to you, you're all i hear
everything we know fades to black

I remember the look on mike's face before one of my 'brothers' Killed him. It was a look of terror and relief. As if seeing me made it better. The moment that the gun shot rang out and echoed around the walls of the room, my whole world faded to black. My eyes swarmed with tears that I held back. I could still hear his voice in my head. He was the reason I was helping kill other agents.

Yes, Orlov did take my family and life away from me, but vengeance is the one true reason I'm helping. I'm avenging the only person in my whole life to ever show me love and compassion, my husband.

half the time the world is ending, truth is i am done pretending

I never thought that i had any more to give
pushing me so far here i am without you
drink to all that we have lost, mistakes that we have made
everything will change, love remains the same

Before I met Mike, I was just another soulless, ruthless killer, but now, after him, I will never be the same. I have made a lot of mistakes in my life, but I will never regret loving Mike Krause.

Find a place where we escape
take you with me for a space
a city bus that sounds just like a fridge
walk the streets through seven bars
i had to find just out where you are
the faces seen to blur they're all the same

We met at the museum he was working at. I used to come there to think all the time, and one day a man, that I had seen there before comes over to me and strikes up a conversation. I started coming more often, so we talked and laughed, shared things but I always held back, knowing that if I let anything slip it could cost both of us our lives. It became a place that was an escape for both of us. And soon, I started to fall for him. Then my mission in North Korea happened.

Half the time the world is ending
Truth is I am done pretending

we should have had the sun
could have been inside
instead we're over here

so much more to say, so much to be done
don't you trick me out, we shall overcome
cause our love stays ablaze

half the time the world is ending, truth is i am done pretending
too much time to love defending, you and i are done pretending

He rescued me. To this day I still cannot believe that he would rescue me. I would have rotted in that hell hole if it weren't for him. Ted said that he realized that I was falling for mike after his white knight act. He was right.

So I came out and told him that I was CIA, and that he wasn't safe with me. I knew that there was no future for us, so I had to tell him. I had expected him to process this information and then say alright nice knowing you, but he did he exact opposite. He said that he didn't want to be safe and that he wanted to spend the rest of his life with me. I started to cry for the first time in a very long time. Mike made me feel safe and loved, and that was when I stopped pretending to not care about what happened in my life.

i never thought that i had any more to give
you're pushing me so far here i am without you
drink to all that we have lost, mistakes that we have made everything will change, everything will change.

I realized then and there that I didn't want to fight the love I felt toward him anymore.

oh, i...
this could last forever

Love remains the same
Love remains the same

everything did change for me from that moment on, and the one and only thing that stayed the same was our love.

The song ended and I wiped the tears from my cheeks. I reached back over to the radio and shut it off. My phone stared to vibrate, so I took a deep breath, cleared my throat and answered the call.

"Salt." I said knowing it was Peabody.

"Salt, you need to get back to D.C., as soon as possible. It's an emergency "Peabody breathed into the phone. He sounded as though he had gotten the wind knocked out of him.

"Great" I thought to myself, the FBI has probably found out that the CIA is working with me. Well they'll just have to deal with it, because, I am helping them.

"Why? What's wrong?" I asked as I started packing up knowing that I was going to have to start running again.

By the time that he responded, I was already packed and ready to go. I walked over to get my coat when he finally answered me, sighing slightly.

"Evelyn...It's about Mike."

Thank you so much for reading and I hope that you enjoyed it!

Should I continue or not?

Please Review, because reviews are like little shots of caffeine, and caffeine makes me happy. And when I'm happy I write more!
