Time of Her Life

Sara B. 12/05


Scully walked in from the kitchen and surveyed the mess in front of her.  Her face broke out in a smile as she took in the sight of wrapping paper scattered everywhere, the tree  that held no decorations on the lower portion to remove temptation from little hands and her two ‘men’ sitting on the floor in the middle of it all.  Mulder was showing Will the finer points of basketball handling, using Will’s new Nerf ball.

 “Hey, Kareem, he took his first step three days ago.  I think it might be a tad early for basketball.”

“Ah, my dear skeptic, it is never too early.  Why do you think I insisted you watch all those games with me when you were pregnant?  Osmosis, Scully, osmosis.”

She joined them on the floor and kissed them both.  “I’ll show you osmosis, Mulder.”  Her hand brushed his leg and the response was immediate.  Scully got up and ‘wiggled’ her way toward their bedroom.

“I think Will needs a nap, right Buddy?”  He leaned in close to the boy and whispered, “help your old man out here.  Mom’s got another present for me.” 

Scully heard Mulder putting Will down for his nap.  Normally, the process took about an hour; today Mulder was breaking the land speed record.  “Two stories tonight.  I promise two stories.”  She heard Mulder telling their son.  A second later he was in the door way of their room.

“I’m ready to learn all about osmosis, Scully.”  His body betrayed his eagerness.  “I’m always ‘up’ for continued education.” 

She felt her happiness bubbling in her and she couldn’t contain the laughter.  This was the time of her life.
