Spoilers: None Keywords: Mulder/Scully Romance, angst, character death Rating: PG Summary: After a tragic plane crash, Scully is left to wonder if Mulder is dead. The Plane by Invisible Sun "So, when are you coming home?" Scully asked into the phone. "I'm gonna try to leave tonight," Mulder's voice responded. Scully mumbled her approval. "I miss you," she then said. "I miss you, too." "When you get home, I have a surprise for you." "Ooh, a surprise. What is it?" "Now, if I told you it wouldn't be a surprise, now would it?" She heard him laugh," Well, okay, I'll take your word for it. I gotta go or I'm gonna miss my flight." "OK. I love you." "I love you, too," and he hung up. The next morning 12:45 P.M. Skinner sat in his office, reading through another case file, when someone knocked on his door. "Come in," he barked. The door opened and Kim, his secretary, walked in. "Sir, I've just received word that Agent Mulder's plane crashed last night. So far, there's been no survivors." Skinner looked up, "You sure?" Kim nodded, "Sir, do you want me to imform Agent Scully?" "No, I'll do it," Skinner said as he got his jacket and left for Quantico. X-File Office Skinner hesistated before knocking on the door of Mulder and Scully's office. He knew of their relationship, their true relationship, and wondered how he was going to tell Agent Scully that her husband was now dead because of a damn plane crash. "It's open," he heard Scully say. Slowly, he opened the door and stepped inside. "Sir, you didn't have to come all the way down here; I would have been more than happy to go up there," she said when she looked up from the case file. Skinner sighed. How do you tell your agent that her husband was dead? he thought. He might have had to tell people that their loved ones were killed but he's never had to be the barer of the bad news when it came to one of his agents. Judging from his body language, Scully knew that Skinner did not have good news, "Sir, what is it? Have Mulder and I been seperated?" "No, it's not that," Skinner said, looking down at the ground. "Then what is it?" Skinner sighed again and tried to break the news to her, "The plane that Mulder was on never made it to Dulles International." "What do you mean?" "They found it this morning, on the side of a mountain." "No." "There were no survivors." "This can't be happening," Scully said, as tears rolled down her cheeks, "He can't die." Skinner walked over to Mulder's desk where she was sitting and placed his hand on her shoulder, the only way he knew how to comfort her. She turned toward him and collapsed on him crying out of control now. "He can't die. I had a surprise for him. He can't die," she cried over and over. Scully and Mulder's apartment 10:13 P.M. He entered the apartment quietly, for fear of waking her up. He was headed for the bedroom when he saw her on her couch, sleeping. He knelt down to her, and brushed some hair out of her eyes. He noticed tear tracks on her cheeks. She held in her hands a picture of her and Mulder. Her mother had taken one day when they went over. He was about to leave when he saw her slowly open her eyes. "M-Mulder?" she asked. He knelt down to her again. "Scully." "Oh, my God," Scully said as she jumped up and hugged him tightly. "Shh. It's okay." "I thought you were dead. He told me you died on that plane," Scully cried into his shoulder. "Dana, I missed that plane. And I couldn't call to tell you." She said nothing, just cried, thanking whatever God out there that saved her Mulder. He looked down at her, "So, what's my surprise?" She laughed quietly and said, "Congratulations, you're going to be a daddy." A huge grin slowly appeared on his face. The End Feedback? Visit my site at
