Chapter one the visit
North East Georgetown Medical Center,
Agent Dana Scully held her FBI badge in her hand as she looked at her cross necklace that Mulder had bought back to her. Her Mom and sister had left half an hour ago and they promised to fetch Agent Mulder for her along the way.
Then there was a knock on the door. Scully sat up in bed. She was getting better and regaining her strength. She was aching to get back to work and decided she would ask Mulder if there was anything she could do to help the X Files while she was in hospital.
“Come in,” Scully called out. The door opened and a tired looking Mulder entered the room. Though he was smiling, Scully could tell he was worried and preoccupied with something.
“Scully,” he said with a smile as he moved to sit by her side. “What are you doing up? You’re meant to be resting,” he said gently as he laid a hand on her shoulder. “I’m feeling good Mulder, thanks,” Scully told him with a smile and they shared their secret handshake. Scully couldn’t remember when they started the handshake, it had just come naturally to them.
“You look worried, Mulder,” Scully told him gently after he kissed her on the forehead. “Do I?” Mulder asked. “I hope you’re not worried about me, Mulder. I’m recovering really fast and Im regaining my strength everyday. I can’t wait to be out of here and start working with you again,” she told him enthusiastically. “In the mean time Mulder is there anything I can do like read over and editing reports?” she asked him eagerly.
Mulder stroked his chin as he thought of her request. Finally he declined. “I’m sorry Scully, but I think it’s best if we wait till after you get out of here. But thank you for wanting to help me,” he told her with a smile. Scully rested her head against the pillow and sighed. “I was afraid you might say that,” she said.
Just then there was a knock on the door and both agents looked up in surprise. “Come in,” Scully called. The door opened to reveal a worried looking Bill Scully, Scully’s brother. He was wearing casual sweater and jeans. Scully blinked in surprise. She clearly wasn’t expecting to see her brother. Mulder looked up at the stranger. “Bill,” Scully said. “Dana,” Bill replied as he walked over to her bed. “Mulder, this is Bill, my brother. Bill, this is my partner Agent Mulder,” Scully introduced them. The two men looked wearily at each other before shaking hands.
“Agent Mulder,” Bill said. “Mr Scully,” Mulder greeted him. There was an awkward silence before Bill asked, “could I have a moment with my sister please, Agent Mulder?” To which Mulder nodded and squeezed Scully’s hand. “Of course,” he said before looking back at Scully. “I’ll be outside if you need me,” he told her, and Scully smiled back at him in response. “Thanks Mulder,” she said before he left the room.
Chapter Two Brother and sister talk
“I’m so sorry I didn’t come earlier, Dana,” Bill told her as he sat on the chair that Mulder had just been sitting on. He held Scully’s hand gently as he smiled at her. “It’s okay Bill. I know you were working. It’s not your fault,” she told him with a smile. “I just feel bad. Who was that guy anyway? You work with him right?” Bill asked her with a raised eyebrow. “Yes. He’s my partner on the X Files,” Scully told him. “I’m sorry, the what Files?” Bill asked, looking confused. “The X Files,” Scully told him with a grin. “We try to solve cases that are deemed unsolvable by the main stream Bureau. Cases that involve… supernatural and paranormal in nature,” she explained. “I see. So you’re helping that guy chase aliens?” Bill asked. “I know you don’t understand Mulder, but he is a good agent, Bill. He’s cared for me since the beginning and he’s the only one I would put myself at risk for,” Scully told him. Bill nodded. “Okay, Dana. Well I don’t think we should be talking about work anymore, you need to rest. I’m staying at Mom’s for another couple of days so we can all take you home when you are discharged,” Bill told her. Scully smiled gratefully. “Thanks Bill,” she told him and they shared a smile before Bill squeezed her hand. “See you later, Dana,” Bill said. “See you later,” Scully repeated before Bill took one last look at her and left the room.
Chapter three acquaintances
As Bill closed the door behind him he saw her partner, Agent Mulder, leaning against the wall and looking anxious. “Agent Mulder,” Bill greeted him. Mulder looked up at him. “Bill,” he said. Bill then sat on the chair next to Mulder. “Please can you tell me what the X Files do,” Bill asked him. Mulder nodded. “We try and solve cases that the FBI deem unsolvable. These cases sometimes contain monsters, ghosts, aliens-,” Mulder began. “Little green men,” Bill interrupted sarcastically. Mulder nodded, choosing to ignore the sarcasm in Bill’s voice. At least he now knew Bill was a skeptic, like Scully. “So where do you work within the FBI?” Bill asked. “The basement,” Mulder said after a pause. “The basement? So you mean to tell me that not only have you dragged my sister out from her seriously regular duties of the FBI, you make her work in the basement too?!” Bill exclaimed as he shook his head in disbelief.
Mulder looked crimson. “Yeah,” he admitted as he rubbed the back of his neck uncomfortably. Bill nodded and stood up with a sigh. “Thanks for the talk, Agent Mulder. I’ve heard enough. Take care of Dana. I’ll be back,” he told Mulder before turning in his heel and left. Mulder sighed as he watched him go, and felt surprised Bill didn’t like him.
With a frown, Mulder went to knock on Scully’s door again to tell her what had happened between him and Bill.
Chapter four spending time together
Scully sighed as Mulder told her about his conversation with her brother Bill. “It doesn’t surprise me,” she said. “I’m sorry I didn’t get a chance to warn you, Mulder,” she told him. Mulder smiled a small smile. “It’s okay Scully. Most people I know don’t believe. Which is why I’m on my own down in that basement,” he told her. “You’re not alone anymore,” Scully reminded him gently as she laid a hand on his. They then shared a moment as they looked deep into each other’s eyes. Then Mulder coughed which startled them out of their reverie. “Right, well I hope you enjoyed the flowers and that video I bought you Scully,” Mulder said with a smile. Scully smiled back. “I do. Thanks again, Mulder,” she said before Mulder laid a comforting hand on her shoulder.
“See ya,” he told her softly. “See ya,” Scully replied, and Mulder left, leaving Scully alone with her thoughts of Nurse Owens.
