Notes: Okay, this is probably not what most of you wanted in a missing scene. But it ties in nicely with the story I'm currently writing. And I have no control over the little voices in my head, okay?
I should have said somethin reassurin to her; somethin comfortin. Or touched her lightly on the arm. Somethin to let her know that I understood; sympathized. But did I? No; I stood there like a big, dumb ox until she finally just walked away.
It's not that I don't care. Hell, after readin everythin that's happened to her, how could I not care. Especially now that she's in a family way. Oh, yea, I'm not supposed to know about that.
And therein lies my problem. You see, there's lots of things I'm not supposed to know about, but do. Like the Consortium, and colonization, and alien rebels, and black oil, and.... Well, you get the picture.
Let me tell you, this skeptical act is getting harder and harder to pull off. I know one of these times I just gonna blurt somethin out and Scully'll be on me like green on grass.
Of course I'll have to explain. But how? She of all people would never understand. She'll just think I'm part of the conspiracy.
Damn, my head is killin me. Guess I'll just call it a night.
I let out a long sigh as I slip into bed. God, I'm tired.
"JD... You okay?"
A strong arm slips around my waist, pullin me close, followed by a soft kiss at the back of my neck.
I can't help but smile. "Yea, Alex, I'm fine. Go on back to sleep."
