Hey! This is a story about what would happen if Mulder and Scully had run away a little earlier than they did in the series. Hope you enjoy! Comments are always welcome!

"Mulder, Mulder. Don't you hear that?!" Scully ripped the pillow from under her ahead and whacked the sleeping Mulder with it. Mulder jolted up "What?! What's going on?" "The baby's crying" Scully said as she began to settle back down into her pillow "It's your turn" Mulder groaned but hopped out of bed and walked into the room beside his and Scully's. He scooped up his squealing baby girl and began rocking her back and forth. "I bet you miss your mommy right about now don't you Melly?" He swayed some more as he watched her big brown eyes stare at his every move. "She would be singing right now wouldn't she. Singing that happy world song" Mulder chuckled to himself as he recalled the first time he ever heard Scully sing the one and only song that she would sing. "Don't you look at me like that! I'm not singing." He laughed and sat down in the rocking chair next to the brown, wooden, crib.
"Daddy, Daddy" Mulder woke up to his young son poking his face. "William what are you…" Mulder looked down at his sleeping daughter who was curled up in his arms. "Oh I fell asleep" Mulder chuckled. "Again Mulder" Scully said arriving into Melissa's room with a plate full of toast. "Is that for me?" Mulder asked hopefully. Scully chuckled "Yes it is. You better eat quickly or you're going to be late for work… Again."
Mulder slowly lifted himself off the rocking chair and passed Melissa to Scully as Scully passed the plate to him. "Mommy, mommy, where's my breakfast?" William piped in. "In the kitchen Willy" William ran out of the room into the small white kitchen. William was the spitting image of Mulder as a child. If you put two pictures beside each other it was almost impossible to tell the difference.
Mulder began to wolf down his toast. "Slow down" Scully laughed "You have a bit of time. Relax we're not in the FBI anymore." "Hey you're the one who doesn't want me to be late again" he said between bites of bread. "I don't want to disappoint the kids anyhow." Mulder worked at a local elementary school teaching English to young children. "You know you're lucky you got that job Mulder" Scully said seriously. "I know, I know but I miss it sometimes you know? I mean I would never change what we did. I just wish that someday we could go back." He kissed Melissa on the head and walked into his and Scully's room and began to get dressed.
"Well as soon as my Spanish lessons are done and Melly's old enough to go to school I'll get a job as a doctor. I'm sure it won't be too hard. Then you can try and find something more appealing to you" Scully followed Mulder into their room and watched him pull up a pair of old black slacks and search his drawer for a shirt. "It's not that I don't like the job Scully, I just don't feel like it's my niche." Mulder had picked out a blue button done shirt and was halfway through buttoning it. "And I hate always looking behind our backs, fleeing our home at any sign of trouble. Lately I've been worrying about how this is going to affect them." Mulder was referring to Melissa and William. "William's in his second year of school and he's already in his third one! I know he doesn't mind now but what happens when he gets older. How's he going to keep friends? How are they going to have a normal life Scully?" Mulder was now struggling with a striped tie. Scully put Melissa down on the bed and went to help him.
"We've been in the same place for almost six months; maybe we can stay this time." "I don't want to live on maybes" Mulder sighed. "Come on at least we've been in one country for the last three years." Scully was determined to look on the bright side "At least we're alive and together" Mulder kissed her lips softly "I never thought I'd be raising my kids in Mexico" Scully giggled and kissed Mulder more deeper than the last one. His arms wrapped around her. "We'll figure it out Mulder"
Not too far away there was a man lurking in the nearby bushes looking up into the apartment with a pair of binoculars. He smirked to himself as he saw a slim woman with flaming red hair walk by the window. "I've got you now"
