Title: Fun In the Sun?
Sequel: It's a sequel to my story "Hunted".
Summary: Shalimar and Brennan get some more time off and it goes to hell again…only this time Jesse and Emma are coming along for the ride.
Disclaimer: They're not mine.(Dangit!)
In their bedroom, Brennan sat on his and Shalimar's bed as he watched the very anxious feral pace in front of him. "Shal, everything will be fine," he said, trying to reassure her, but it didn't seem to work.
"Yeah, fine like last time?" she retorted as she stopped for a second to look at him before she started pacing again.
"Shalimar, we're going to Florida and we'll be around people almost all the time. No one is going to hunt us down. No one is going to try to kill us. It's just going to be fun in the sun," he said but when he got a disbelieving look from Shalimar, he added, "Not to mention that Jesse and Emma are coming too. Everything is going to be alright."
Shalimar sighed and then stopped pacing. "Yeah, I guess you're right. Vacationing just hasn't appealed to me ever since we had our little trip through the woods. I'm just worried that something like that will happen again."
Smiling slightly, Brennan walked over to her and pulled her into his arms. Kissing her on top of the head, he said, "Nothing like that will ever happen again. I won't let it."
"Promise?" she asked as she looked up at him.
"I promise," he replied as he bent down and kissed her on the lips.
Just then, Jesse and Emma walked into their bedroom.
"Are you two ready to…" Emma began, but when she saw them kissing, she stopped and glanced over at Jesse with a smile on her face.
Brennan and Shalimar broke apart quickly and then looked over at the two standing at the door.
"Sorry. We didn't mean to barge in," Jesse apologized.
Shalimar smiled. "It's ok. We need to get going anyway."
"Yes, you should," Adam said as he walked into the room. "You have a long drive ahead of you."
"Yeah, I was going to ask you about that. Why can't we just take the Double Helix?" Brennan asked. "It would be a lot faster."
"Because I may need it and it wouldn't be a real vacation if you didn't have to drive to you destination," Adam replied.
"According to who?" Shalimar retorted with a frown.
Brennan nodded. "Yeah, I mean there are other ways to get to your…destination. You can fly in a plane, take a boat, ride in a train,…take the Double Helix, but no. You're making us drive in a car for God knows how many days it's going to take us to get there!"
Adam shrugged as he said, "It will be some good quality team bonding time."
"Adam, we can bond just as well flying in the Double Helix," Jesse countered.
"And I think we'll only get annoyed with each other if we're stuck in a small car together for a long period of time," Emma added.
Adam threw his hands up in exasperation. "You are not taking Double Helix and that's final! Either you get in the car and drive away at this very moment or I will find some work for you to do. Now get out of here!"
There were a few groans before the four members of Mutant X filed out of the room and made their way to the garage. After they put all their stuff in the trunk of the car, they all decided where they would sit.
"I'm driving!" Jesse exclaimed, before anyone could say anything, and then got into the driver's seat.
Brennan glared at him for a second before he slip into the backseat.
Shalimar and Emma looked at each other and shrugged. Then Emma got in the front passenger seat and Shalimar slid into the back next to Brennan.
Once everyone was comfortable, Jesse turned the car on and they drove away.
