Summary: The camera rolls after the ending scene of Existence.

I could have never imagined the existence of feelings of such utter completion. She holds my arms, as I cradle our son between us. Our mouths continue to search one another's, almost as if to speak the words we can never seem to bring ourselves to say. But words are unnecessary now, as we speak to one another with our every breath, with our lips and our tongues.

We speak with our hearts.

I so love this woman. She is my partner, my lover, my friend . . . and now, she is the mother of my beloved son. Newfound feelings of sheer adoration and devotion flow from me unto her. After decades of searching, I have finally found the truth. The truth is here and now. The truth has never been more alive.

From just beyond the ethers of my consciousness, I hear a tiny cry. William stirs for a moment.

Finding his fist, he begins to suckle and is soon sound to sleep. Scully and I watch him sleep so peacefully between us. He is safe and secure. He is wanted. This child is so very loved.

"Scully?" I whisper softly as I gaze into the endless blue of her eyes. "Are you feeling what I'm feeling?"

"I've never been happier than I am at this very moment, Mulder." And the corners of her eyes and her mouth turn up into a smile. "Mulder, I haven't told you this in a very long time. But, I love you so very much."

Touched by the emotion of her words, tears begin to well up in my eyes. "I love you, too, Scully.

Today, those words somehow seem so inadequate."

I lean down and our lips brush against one another until they meet into another soft kiss.

"Scully?" I interrupt and once again, gaze deeply into her eyes.

"Marry me. Please, marry me." My eyes implore hers.

She appears to be touched by my proposal.

I continue, "I don't ever want to be without you again, Scully. I've found the truth here, with you and with our son. Now that I've found it, I don't ever want to let it go. I don't ever want to let you go."

"Oh, Mulder." Again, she appears to be genuinely touched by my sincerity.

Before she can speak, I continue, "Scully, please. I could never stop loving you and wanting you. Allow me to make a decent woman out of you, as you so deserve."

She slightly grins, and I continue.

"Allow me to give our son a name, and to spend the rest of my life honoring our love. For the first time in my life, I feel complete with you and William. This is where I fit in. It's where I belong. Please, Scully."

"Oh, Mulder." She softly cries. And she shakes her head gently up and down.

"Yes, Mulder. I will marry you."

I can see the joy on my own face reflected in her eyes. Our heads move forward, meeting forehead to forehead, as the three of us continue our loving embrace.


(As it should be.)
