Written by: Erin M. Blair

It was a week after they got back from Antarctica. Mulder and Scully were back at the scene of where it all began - Mulder's apartment. "I hope the bee doesn't sting me again," Scully murmured as she watched Mulder turning the key to open his door to his apartment. They were in the hallway where they almost kissed before the bee stung her.

"Ha. Ha. Very funny, Scully."

They were now in Mulder's apartment; both of them were standing. Mulder and Scully didn't want to sit down. Both just wanted to look at each other, hoping for the moment to come again.

Scully looked at Mulder. She was happy to be there and happy to be alive. "I'm just teasing, Mulder." Scully paused for a minute. "Thank you for saving my life -- again."

"I'd do it again and again, Scully. You know how much I..."



"Scully, I had only forty-eight hours to get the cure to you. I didn't want to lose you again. When I close my eyes, I could visualize what must have going on with you. I didn't want anything bad to happen to you again," said Mulder.

Scully tiptoed up to face Mulder and then she gently put her arms around his neck. Scully then kissed him on the lips. "Mulder, I understand completely."

Mulder felt the warmth of Scully's luscious red lips on his. "Do you know how much I love you?" He put his arms around her thin body and they were now in an embrace. Their bodies warmed each other from the cold experience of Antarctica.

"I do know how much I love you, Mulder. I have always know we're in love with each other. I fell in love with you the day I first met you. I was going to tell you everything in the car that time, but you didn't want me to call you 'Fox.' That's OK, though - calling you 'Mulder' is a thousand times better. When you gaze into my eyes, I know you love me. It's just that it's always this truth that we both know."

"When Diana walked back into my life, I thought you should know, Scully. I could see how jealous you were. She has nothing on me. You do."

"Deep down -- I think I knew, but it's hard when you let the green monster get a hold of you," said Scully with a sigh.

"I agree wholeheartedly."

"I sure hope that I will never get stung again. Otherwise, you'll just have to cure me, Mulder."

"You just have to make more of the vaccine," said Mulder. "Are you going to?"

"Yes, I will run it through the labs when we get reinstated on the X-Files."

"I sure hope so."

"If not, no one will tear us apart."

Mulder gazed into Scully's clear blue eyes and then his lips touched hers in a kiss. They were reunited at last.

Author's Notes:

I have re-watched the X-Files movie, and I thought it would be nice to write a story when Mulder and Scully were reunited. I wanted to touch on the near-kiss. I felt a discussion was needed. I hope you'll enjoy this story.
