Summary: Just a little meeting in a fast food restuarant.

Notes: Just something that came to me while I was trying to sleep and wouldnt leave me alone so I had to write it down. I dont really like it but it wouldnt let me sleep so here it is.

Dana Scully hated her job. She was glad the summer was almost over. Then she could go back to school and not have to worry about it anymore. When her parents first suggested she get a summer job, she was thrilled. She'd have something to do over the summer, make money, and not have to babysit her little brother.

She wiped the grease off the counter once again, wondering for the zillionth time that day why time had to pass so slowly.

Fox Mulder walked into the fast food restaurant. He was starving. He'd just seen a movie with a bunch of friends that had all decided to vacation there together and then they decided to go out again later that night. But until then he had to find something to do. He didnt want to go back to the hotel.

He walked up to the counter and looked at the menu.

"I'll have a number 3," he told the girl behind the counter. "Anything else?" she asked.

He could tell she wasnt very happy. "No thats all."

"That'll be $3.52," she told him as she went to get his food. "I got break after this! Someone get the register!" she called to whomever else was back there.

She brought him his burger and fries, and asked him what type of drink he wanted. "Mountain Dew."

She filled the cup and set it down on the plastic tray. As he handed her the money he asked. "Care to join me? I hear you say you were going on break and..." he trailed off, obviously embarrassed.

"Sure," she said, surprising them both. "Let me just get some ice cream and I'll be right there."

Sure enough, she found him sitting at a table a few seconds later. She sat down across from him.

"So, you don't seem to be very happy working here," he stated.

"I'm not."


"Cause its so boring. There's nothing to do. It's the same thing every day. I cant wait till school starts again so I dont have to be here anymore."

"Why dont you just quit?" he asked. "

Are you kidding?! My parents would have a fit if I quit! Especially now that summer's almost over! Plus, I need the money."

"What grade you in?"

"Going into eleventh. You?"

"Just graduated."

"Oh? Where you going to college?"


"Th -"

She was cut off by someone yelling. "DANA! GET BACK IN HERE! NOW!"

"Guess my break is over. It was nice meeting you," she said as she stood up and got ready to go back to work.

"Nice meeting you too," he replied and threw his garbage away. He looked back as he left the restaurant.

The End.
