Scully was walking through a vale to
find Mulder. She found him in the library, waiting for her by a kiosk. She saw him looking through a book of recipes for
cranberry sauce. "Mulder, why do you
want to make cranberry sauce?"

"Oh! I lost my grandmother's recipe,
so I decided to get a book and get a
new recipe," said Mulder as he looked
at his winsome partner. They were finally having a fling ever since that kiss on New Year's Eve.

"Why, Mulder, I thought you didn't know what the inside of a library looks like," she said teasingly. "I thought you only like to look at Adult Video News."

Mulder pretended to be offended. "Aw,
Scully, I'm hurt. There's more to me than reading a magazine on pornos."

"Mulder, I could've sent you my
mother's recipe," said Scully. "It wouldn't have been any trouble."

They walked out of the library. The building was surrounded by a beautiful hillside and a pond. There were picnic tables surrounding the pond, and Mulder and Scully sat down on one of them. After a few minutes of sitting, they heard quacky sounds from the ducks in the pond.

Scully felt blissful, so enamored of being with Mulder. She simpered as he slipped his arms around her waist. "Do you know how much I love you?"

"I do know," said Mulder. He felt their warm lips touching as he kissed her. "I want you so much, Scully." He preyed on her blue eyes, her gaze full of love for him.

"I want you, too."
