Several hours later, Scully, Reyes and Mulder were on the road to a discreet location only Agent Doggett was aware of. Thankfully, due to wiretapping in the FBI building, the three outer senshi were easily able to obtain that information as well. If they were able to tap the wiring, they figured it wouldn't be long until someone was on to all of them and had them followed.
Haruka watched from the parking garage as three of the Agents made a hasty getaway. Not long after, was the appearance of Billy Miles. "Hurry," Michiru whispered. "We can't let them get away."
"I'm on it!" Haruka called. They barely blinked before Haruka's car roared to life and sped down the street after them.
Not long after, the car in front of them came to an abrupt halt in front of them. Haruka slammed on the breaks. "Shimatta!"
Once they saw that traffic was being manually directed, she sensed danger immediately. "Do you feel that, Michiru, Setsuna?"
Michiru nodded. "He's not human."
"Let's get the hell out of here."
She cursed as the man in front of her yielded her to stop as the car in front of them got away. Haruka pressed her foot firmly on the gas and knocked the super soldier out of the way.
"Uh, Haruka, I think I'd like to get out of this alive if I could," Setsuna said nervously.
"Oh, you have to trust me, Setsuna-san. I'm not as bad a driver as you think I am."
Hours later they followed the other trio into the state of Georgia; to a place they called the democrat hot springs. It was a wonder that the other three hadn't caught on to them by now, even thought it was daylight.
Haruka stopped at a secure location to not too far from where the other Agents had stopped. She got out and stretched her long legs. "Ugh, I really could use a run right about now," she yawned.
Michiru and Setsuna got out and followed. "There's plenty of time for that afterwards. We're here to see about this baby. Once this is done, we can go back to Tokyo, to our friends," Setsuna managed a smiled.
"Yeah, I suppose you're right, although I really did enjoy it out here, being an FBI Agent and all," Haruka grinned.
Michiru rolled her eyes. "We're not on vacation, love. This is another sacred mission."
Haruka sighed. "Hai."
"Stop right there!" A voice shouted.
The trio was started by Monica Reyes pointing a gun at them. Haruka lifted her hands nervously. "Wait a minute; we're not here for any trouble."
"We're here to help," Michiru offered.
Monica reluctantly lowered her weapon. "If you know our whereabouts, than you must have no doubt you've been followed!"
Setsuna stepped forward. "Agent Reyes, as far as we know, no one else has followed. We would have sensed it and so would you."
"Then how did you find us?"
"We followed you after tapping security lines."
Monica's heart began to race. "Then there's no doubt you've been followed. Anyone can tap those lines, which means John's also in danger."
The four exchanged looks.
"Agent Scully has been having contractions; we can't take the risk that anyone else find her here. Now you're either friends or you're enemies. You don't have time to debate it. Either help us or get the hell out."
Haruka chuckled. "Doesn't look like we have much choice, we have a common enemy here."
Doggett frowned when he imposed on Knowle inside Kersh's office. They were in on this together. He knew ever since he'd almost gotten Mulder killed inside that lab, he couldn't trust his so called "friend" anymore. When he saw Knowle start to leave, Doggett turned and quickly picked up his pace.
Moments later he caught up with Skinner at the elevator. He had a bandage around his head. "Sir, what have you been doing out of the hospital?" he asked incredulously. He was referring to the attack Billy Miles had surprised on him.
Skinner took Doggett and quickly turned a corner. "We need to get the hell out of here."
"Sir, tell me what's going on!"
"I think they may know where Scully is."
Doggett nodded. "I was just beginning to figure that out when we realized Billy Miles didn't die when he fell from the rooftop." He sensed that there was more that Skinner wasn't telling him. "What is it, sir?"
"I shot Krycek."
Doggett gasped. "I have to tell you something, too. I think Knowle Rohrer is in on this with Billy Miles. Something's not right about him, ever since he led me to that lab with Mulder."
Skinner nodded. "When you made that phone call, where did you make it from?"
Skinner swallowed. "Then you're not the only one who knows where they are. We have to get a helicopter out there. Scully's probably already having that baby. Let's go!"
Scully moaned in agony as she caressed the expanse of her belly. She was sweating incessantly. This woman known as the Game Warden had caught them in their hiding place. Haruka, Michiru and Setsuna sat next to one another nervously. Haruka was the first to notice her spinal column. She was an enemy, a super soldier who was after Scully's baby.
She said she was a ranger roaming the area, who needed to report Scully's claim of danger, which meant that many others like her were in no doubt on their way. All they could do was wait for the final moment.
Mulder sat next to Scully and helped ease her onto the bed and out of her restrictive clothing. "I'm here, Scully," he whispered. "It's going to be okay."
Scully managed a smile. "I can't believe you're really here, witnessing the birth of our baby," her eyes began to tear up. She was seized with another contraction. "Oh god!"
Setsuna decided to be the one to relay the news to Monica. Revealing anything to Mulder or Scully was impossible at the moment. Not just because of the Game Warden, but they didn't want to do anything to cause any irrational actions.
Monica was about to grab the boiling water for sanitary reasons, when Setsuna startled her. "Agent Meiou, you startled me," she started before she noted the grim expression on the other woman's face.
"What is it, what's wrong?"
"It's that woman, the Game Warden."
Skinner and Doggett had called for backup assistance minutes ago and were able to obtain a helicopter. There was nothing but an expanse of woods before them. Skinner had no idea how he was going to find them at this point.
"Are you sure this is where they're at, Agent Doggett?"
"It's not too far now, we're almost there!" he called out.
Scully had already begun to push as Agent Reyes threw hot water at the Game Warden, causing boils to erupt on her face. Scully's heart raced. "What the hell is happening?" she demanded, stricken.
Haruka, Michiru and Setsuna assisted Reyes with the woman outside before they disappeared from sight. "Mulder, please, don't let them take our baby!" she cried.
Mulder held onto her hand tightly. "I'm not, I'm here, Scully, I promise!"
He watched as several headlights appeared and he knew it wasn't help. The woman was a super soldier and there were no doubt more where she came from. He couldn't help but feel helpless, like there was nothing he could do.
Monica appeared moments later and squatted down next to Scully's legs. Mulder could read from her expression that there were others behind her and that she couldn't stop them. One was definitely Billy Miles, the one he thought they'd killed.
"Agent Reyes, lock that door!" he demanded. However he knew with the sinking feeling in his heart that wouldn't be the end of it. You could shoot these people and it wouldn't do any good.
"Push Dana," Monica cried.
"No," Scully screamed.
"Get them out of here!"
The trio had taken a dive behind the building and began to transform. It was now or never.
They nodded in mutual consent. "Let's be done with this thing and go home," Haruka conceded.
"Uranus Planet Power!"
"Neptune Planet Power!"
"Pluto Planet Power!"
Moments later, they rounded the building to see the entrance wide open, followed by many more followers in the parking lot. "Stop right there! Bound by the solitary duty of our planets, we prohibit you from entering this building!" Pluto cried out, tapping her staff.
The robotic figures barely glanced at the trio as they emerged, almost as if they didn't care.
Neptune placed her gloved hands to her chin. "Well that's interesting, enemies that have no desire to battle with us."
They were startled by Scully's screams coming from within and nearly forgot that their witness to the birth was essential. They had to make sure this baby wasn't what everyone thought he or she was.
They stood in the doorway, clad in their sailor outfits along with the other bystanders. Mulder looked up and saw the seriousness of their demeanor and that they too, didn't stand a chance at what they were up against.
As Scully did her final push, Monica realized that the bystanders weren't there to harm or take the baby. They were watching as if this were some sacred ritual, like the birth of Jesus. She looked down at the squalling baby. "You have a boy!"
Scully began to cry and tears were streaming down Monica's face as well. She handed the baby first to Mulder and then he handed the bundle to Scully. "Oh my god," she whispered, nearly forgetting about her audience. "No!" she screamed. "He's mine!" She clutched the bundle protectively.
They were startled to see the bystanders leaving one by one. "What's going on?" Monica asked
Uranus, Neptune and Pluto watched as a helicopter descended and vehicles pulled away. "I think they saw all they needed to. He wasn't what they expected or wanted," Uranus started.
Scully and Mulder knew what they meant. "He's normal, perfectly normal. They had no use for him."
Mulder watched Scully fuss with the squalling baby. "What does this mean for you three?"
Neptune smiled. "I'm afraid that's the end of our mission, at least this mission. We'll go wherever we're needed."
They returned to their civilian forms when they realized Skinner and Doggett had made it to them.
"We'd better get going."
A few weeks later
Everyone was startled by the three Agent's sudden resignation. The funny thing is that Kersh had started liking them oddly enough. Although there were a few suspicious things about them that he couldn't explain.
They typed up their final report with Agent Reyes and handed in their badges and guns.
"I must say, you were three fine Agents," he smiled in that unusual way of his. "What a shame."
Haruka played along. "I must agree, I really liked this job."
"Why are you leaving anyways?" he questioned.
Michiru smiled. "It's just, you know, we have other things to attend to."
Before Kersh got too puzzled, they made a hasty exit and passed Agent Reyes along the way. "Congratulations, Agent Reyes." Setsuna commented.
"I was just about to hand in the final report; did you already give him your resignation?"
Haruka smiled. "Sure did, pretty lady. Now that Agent Scully and Mulder are out of the X Files, guess who gets to ride with Agent Doggett?" she winked as they continued down the hall.
Monica looked puzzled before she put the pieces together. "If so, I have you to thank. Maybe we'll see each other around sometime?"
"Of course, we won't be too far."
The trio stood in front of the building and watched as Scully and Mulder made their way to the front. Michiru smiled. "How is he doing?"
"William? He's doing just fine, thanks to the three of you. You weren't who we thought you were after all," Scully chuckled.
"We've never had any bad intentions, just doing our job. I'm just happy we ended up having the same mission after all." Setsuna smiled.
"What's your new mission?" Mulder inquired.
"Wherever the horizon takes us."
Mulder and Scully blinked and all that was before the three of them was a flutter of rose petals dancing in the wind.
A/N: Well it's been nearly SEVEN years since I touched this fic and I decided it was so close to the end that I may as well touch it up. Hope you enjoyed! Look for Crystalic Millennia for more Sailor Moon/X-Files!
