What Just Happened

by Djinn

 

What just happened? He kissed me. A real kiss. It was...nice. Very nice. Very, very nice.

"Mulder what are you doing? You're in no shape to drive. We'll get the car later."

Now what? I'm in shock. I must be in shock. I always know what to do. Logical to a fault. But what just happened. It was unexpected. Kind of. Ok, think Dana, think.

"Mulder, I don't think you should be alone. You can sleep on my couch. My place is closer anyway. No, it's no trouble, you know that."

What am I doing? What the hell am I doing? He could go home. And he knows he could go home. What the hell is he doing? I have to think. Ok there's no time to think, we're here. We're getting out of the car. Just a short walk to my door. And I'm opening it. Why is my heart pounding. It's just us. Mulder and Scully, partners. Close friends. But what just happened....

"Scully?"

"Yeah?"

"You gonna come in?"

"Sure, yes, um-huh."

What is wrong with me? Just walk. Into the apartment. Past Mulder. I wish he'd move. I'm glad he's not moving. Oh god, what is he doing?

"Scully?"

"What Mulder?"

"About what just happened..."

"Yeah?"

"It was nice."

"And the world didn't end either"

Did I just say that? Why did I just say that? Why is he looking at me that way. He always stands close. But this is different. And this is scary. And nice.

"Scully?"

"Mulder?"

"Close the door. About what just happened?"

"Yes..."

"I think it's going to happen again."
