A few months had passed and everything went as smoothly as it possibly could go. Mulder and Scully stayed in a hotel for a few nights until they found a place to live.
Scully still couldn't get over how this would be her new home. She wasn't that far from her mother, but still far enough being in Canada.
All she knew was that she would gladly sacrifice her old life if she and her family could live in peace. They recently started looking at real estate ads, as owning property in Niagara Falls was
much cheaper than D.C. "Anything you want, Scully," he insisted.
"No but anything. I have plenty of savings for you to pick just about anything?"
"Where did this money come from, Mulder?" she asked skeptically.
"When my parents passed, they left a large sum for me to do as I please. I don't want to think about where it came from, but I'll be happier knowing it gets us a place to live and pay for our children's college education."
Scully nodded hesitantly. "I guess I can live with that, but that still won't stop me from working to help provide for my family."
"Deal," he wrapped his arms around her expanded waist and kissed her reverently.
Meanwhile, back in DC.
Monica couldn't get over the fact that they all just barley escaped with their life after they killed one of the super soldiers. She knew not to trust anyone.
She was typing up the report at the office when John walked in.
"Morning," he said to her as he walked over and handed her a cup of coffee.
"Morning and thanks," she said. She kept watching him and as he bent over to pick up a pen that had fallen, she couldn't help but check his neck for any abnormalities. She sighed and took a sip of coffee.
John sat up and saw a strange look on her face. "Were you just checking me out?"
She about spit her coffee all over the desk at his question.
"Um..." she started as she wiped her mouth clean from the coffee."Yeah... you're not an alien... congratulations," she teased.
John sighed. "Uh, thanks...I think," he smiled as he sipped his coffee.
"I can't believe we did all that, I mean watching that guy explode with the magnetite. It was enough shock for me."
Monica smiled. "See, you really are getting a hang of this job."
"Yeah, I just hope we can manage without Mulder and Scully. We have nine years of their history right in those files."
"Something tells me we'll be just fine."
"I don't know what I'd do without you, Monica."
"Well, too late, you're stuck with me now."
He smiled. "I think I can live with that."
Monica blushed. She knew that they'd be fine with solving cases. After all, they worked on a few without Mulder or Scully. "We'll make do. I'm sure if Skinner didn't think we'd be able to do it... we'd be jobless," she said.
John nodded. "How true."
"Have you heard anything yet?" Monica took another sip of her coffee. He knew she meant Mulder and Scully.
"Nothing yet at least that I know of. Maybe Skinner heard something," he suggested.
"If he's not too busy with his secretary," she teased.
"MONICA!" He was shocked.
"What? I'm just saying... seems like everyone is happy lately."
"Define happy," she asked.
"Are you happy and in love?" He stared at her.
Monica smiled and touched his face. "Oh John, I've loved you for a long time. I couldn't imagine being with anyone else. I know I'm glad I'm not with Brad anymore even if I do have to work under him," she frowned.
"Good, because I'm not sure I even felt like this with Barb. I'll always love her for giving me Luke, but not the same way I love you. Sometimes you drive me insane, but I love everything about you, Mon," he wrapped his arms around her waist and pulled her towards him.
"Me too, John," she kissed him.
"I just hope the super soldiers or whatever they call themselves doesn't find Mulder and Scully and I hope that's not the last time we see them."
John loved kissing her and did it once more. "Maybe once everything settles, we can make a trip and visit."
Monica smiled. "Really?"
"Yeah, once we know it's safe for all of us. Let's call Skinner and see if he's heard anything yet."
Meanwhile, Mulder carried the last of their things in from their new car. As he sat down in the chair, he sighed. "Glad you finally found a place. Can we rest now?" he teased and then as she walked by him pulled her down onto his lap.
Scully rubbed circles over her expanded belly, feeling sorry she couldn't help Mulder. She couldn't risk lifting anything, even small things. He belly was so big she couldn't see her feet anymore. Make that swollen feet. "Sorry, Mulder. I told you we should have some of it delivered."
He rested his hand over hers. "It's okay," he kissed her. "Why don't you and Will go rest. I will call and let them know were safe." He stood to walk inside with her, carrying the car seat. He really didn't want her to carry anything and William was getting so big. He rested his hand at the small of her back as he walked slowly to match her growing waddle. He thought it was cute, but mentioning it would be dangerous territory.
He smiled as they left. He pulled out his new cell phone and called skinner. He couldn't wait to finish the call already so he could lay down with his family and enjoy it without being threatened.
"Skinner," came the familiar voice.
"Hey Skin man, what's up? Just wanted to let you know things are going great out here."
Skinner shook his head and laughed. "Well, it definitely sounds like it. The guys are working on getting the rest of your stuff to you via UPS. And we went ahead and rented out your apartments. I bet the people who rented them would be baffled at all the history there."
"Don't tell them... I mean if you want to keep getting the rooms rented out," he laughed.
"I just wanted to let you know we are settled and doing ok right now. I'll email you the address later. Right now it's been tiring. I'm going to head to bed right now though. I just wanted to thank you for all your help. Everyone's really."
"No problem, Mulder. I have let Scully's mom know that you are both safe. We'll do our best to make sure it stays that way. I think Agents Doggett and Reyes are doing a fine job on the X-Files."
"That's good. I trust them finally. Took a while, but they both seem to have what it takes for The X Files Unit."
"I can't do much from here, but if you have questions about a case, I could give some lead way... just don't tell Scully... she'll freak out. Speaking of which, I'm going to go join her. She's been tired lately. I'll send pictures, she's beautiful pregnant and I can't wait until our daughter gets here. It shouldn't be long now," he smiled. "Don't waist another moment alone... It's a better life when you have a loved one. I'll talk to you later."
Skinner smiled. "Thanks Mulder and about Kim, we're having dinner tonight, but keep that to yourself."
"About time!" Mulder replied. "Treat her right. I'll talk to you later."
Skinner laughed. "You know I will and have fun, stay out of trouble."
"I'll try," he laughed and hung up. Mulder took that opportunity to run up the stairs.
Scully was sitting on the bed with William next to her. She was so glad they were finally able to get some real rest lately. She had her eyes closed, but heard the footsteps getting closer to the bedroom.
Mulder stopped in the doorway and smiled. Motherhood really suited her. She knew she would beg to differ, but her huge with his child was a huge turn on for him.
Scully could feel him looking at her. She turned her head a little and looked at him with a smile on her face.
"Sometimes I envy that little guy," he grinned as he watched her breastfeed.
She laughed. "Well, they belong to you for other things." She winked at him.
"I know, but not every few hours. I'd be one lucky guy," he laughed and sat next to her. "I love you, Scully."
"I love you, too," she said and finished feeding William and then rested him over her shoulder as she burped him. "So... did you get a hold of Skinner?"
"Yeah, they are getting the rest of our stuff here by UPS and our apartments were rented out."
"And, he's going on a date with Kim," he finished.
"Good." She smiled and then she laughed a little. "Really? About time."
"I know, tell me about it."
"Good for them."
"I was thinking Scully...I don't think I can be celibate for too much longer and we won't be able to do anything for a while after the baby comes so…" he grinned.
Scully blushed." Oh yeah?"
She rocked William and looked down at him. "I think it's someone's bedtime." She looked up at Mulder. "Night daddy," she said to him. She leaned forward. "I am going to put William down. I'll be to bed in a few minutes." She kissed him.
Mulder grinned. This must be his getting lucky cue. "I'll be right there."
He went to their master bedroom, eager to make love in their brand new home and bed they now shared. He dressed down into a sexy black Speedo and lay in bed, still grinning.
Scully walked around the room as she rocked William to bed after she changed his diaper. Once he had his eyes closed, she smiled and laid him in bed. "Sleep tight, sweet William." She patted his chest and then went to the bathroom and freshened up. A few minutes later, she walked into the bedroom wearing a sexy nightgown.
"You're not asleep are you?" she asked as she walked over to the bed.
Mulder opened his eyes and smiled even wider. "No, just imagined when you would be coming in here, although my imagination can't even do me justice to what I'm seeing right now," he stood up and pulled her close to him, kissing her belly. "They sure make sexy lingerie for pregnant women these days."
"I'm not sexy," she said looking down at him. "I'm fat."
"You're not fat, you're pregnant and I love it. I can't imagine anything sexier than you carrying my baby." Mulder felt his erection straining against his thong. "Do you need me to prove it to you?" He grinned.
She looked down and smiled. "I can clearly see the evidence for myself." She bit her lip. "But who would have thought... we would have been blessed with 2 miracles?" She smiled. She didn't let it show but she was THRILLED to be carrying another child.
He smiled. "I know me, too. I'm glad I'm the lucky guy who gave it to you."
She smiled and kissed him. "I'm glad, too." She ran her fingers through his hair.
He began to kiss her chest. "This is going to be okay, right...I uh, don't want to hurt you, or the baby..."
She sighed, enjoying the feel of his lips on her body. "You know, Mulder, it's perfectly safe and fine for us to have sex. I can in all reality have sex until my due date. It's good to keep the muscles of the vagina walls to stay in shape and lose. Helps with the birth." She smiled at him, hoping that wasn't too much information to ruin the mood.
"Good to know, Doc." he cupped her breast with his hand and began to tease her swollen nipple. He felt himself harden at the sight of her bigger breasts. "I really could get used to this pregnancy thing, I can't tell you how turned on I am right now."
"Well, don't count on baby 3. Remember, we thought William was our miracle... and then we were blessed with this one, I don't think it'd happen again. So enjoy this body while you can." She smiled as she let her hands trail down over his shoulders to his back. She then moved closer so she was straddling his legs.
"Well then, I'd better take full advantage," he whispered sliding his hands reverently over her belly and down to her wet folds.
Sighed and tilted her head back. "Oh, Muldeerr," she moaned. "Sorry Scully, but I don't think Mulder Jr. can wait too much longer," he said and she knew she wasn't referring to the baby. "I'm ready," she whispered and the wetness he felt on his fingers agreed with her. She helped his straining erection out of his thong and eased onto his length. She gently eased back and forth as much has her pregnant belly would allow. She leaned over to ease the weight of her belly on his stomach as he held her hips in position, moving in sync with her. He moaned. The last time he experienced this was how she got that huge pregnant belly.
It couldn't seem to last long enough before he felt her join him in release. Scully couldn't deny even this late in her pregnancy; he made her feel absolutely beautiful and attractive. She'd waited so long for this. She sighed as she eased back onto her side. "I've waited so long for that Mulder, we need to do this more often, especially before the baby comes."
He placed his hand on her belly and moved to kiss her. "I think that's a doable request."
She pulled back. "I'm not letting you get away this time; you're not leaving me again. I can't protect our children without you."
"I'm not going anywhere, Scully. I've already missed out on so much. There's no way I'm having you out of my sight again."
Scully grinned. "Well, now THAT might be a difficult request."
"You know what I mean. In the eyes of the law, we're married now and I plan to keep it that way Mrs. Holder."
To be continued…stay tuned for the epilogue!
