All These Years

Scully tossed a few things into her overnight bag. She pulled out a few new nighties and glanced over to Mulder who was packing his things as well. With a wicked look in his eye, he nodded that he approved and she smiled and then placed them in the bag carefully. "Come on we still have to get to the airport."
Scully grabbed up the two photos she knew she needed to bring with her, one of William and one of Emily and added them. "I'm done," she said, as Mulder inspected her bag packed with military precision.
He touched her chin and lifted it up so she could look at him. "I love you," he said, simply.
"I love you too, Mulder. I always have, I always will."
Mulder stared at her with reverence. "Same here, kid."
"You ready?", she said, nervously.
"We're gonna have a lot of fun," he smiled, grabbing her bag.
"No monsters or UFO's, right?", she said, skeptically.
Mulder laughed. "Give me some credit, Scully. I picked the islands the last time, right?"
"Yes," she said, cocking her head to the side and peering at him with her eyebrow raised. "Okay, I trust you."
"Thanks," he laughed and followed her out of their bedroom.
Maggie clasped her hands together as she watched her daughter emerge from the hallway into the living room. She smiled and hugged her tightly. "You never gave us a chance to toast the couple nor did you open your wedding presents."
Scully shrugged. "There's plenty of time for that when we get back and then we'll send out thank you cards."
"You never said where you're taking her," Monica spoke directly to Mulder, as baby Maria cooed and squealed.
Scully turned to look up at him and he could see all eyes on him as all the women waited for his answer. He smiled. "Besides the wedding, I figured it was time to use some of my parent's money," he said, looking down into her eyes as she waited. "We're going on a four city tour of Rome, London, Paris and Dublin," he said, with a wide smile.
All the women erupted intp screams and Scully hugged Mulder, wrapping her hand around his neck and kissing him fiercely. "You out-did yourself, Mulder," she sighed.
"Well," he said, embarrassed. "I figured you deserved to sleep and dine in luxury after all the years of putting up with me in crappy motels and everything else. You've stuck with me when no one else has," he said, holding her close. "No one knows what exists between us, hold strong and true it is. But we know," he said, as tears crept into her eyes. "You are my life long partner, the mother of my only child and now my wife," he said, in amazement. "How in the world do I deserve you?"
Scully stared into his eyes as the entire world disappeared around her. Mulder brought his lips to hers and she shivered as he drove his tongue down into her warm mouth. Maggie, Tara and Jill smiled but looked-away as the couple kissed.
"Awkward!", one of the younger women said, which made both Mulder and Scully blushed.
Skinner walked up to the couple and grabbed up their bags. "If you want to make it to the airport, you need to be leaving now."
Mulder touched his arm. "Sorry, we were lost there for a moment."
"I see," Skinner said, embarrassed.
Mulder kissed Maggie on the cheek and then followed Skinner out to where the rest of the men were all waiting. Scully hugged each of her sister-n-laws, friends and mother and walked with them as they escorted her out to the car. Bill and Charles grabbed her and gave her a group hug. She waved to her nephews as well and then climbed into the passenger side of their car. Mulder shook Skinner and Doggett's' hands as well as Bill and Charles. They pulled off and drove on to the road, with the words "Just Married" painted on the back.
Scully looked at Mulder and sighed. "All these Years we've been driving in cars and this time we're off to our honeymoon."
"We are," Mulder smiled. "I can't wait, Scully," he said, extending his hand to her.
Scully slid her hand into his and their fingers entwined. "The way it should be," she said, looking down at their hands together. "Forever in love," she sighed.
