Title: A Life Like This
Genre: Romance/Drama
Disclaimer: Don't own Alias....yet

This could take place in Season 1 and 2

Can also be a AU...but, I didn't really make it that way

Sydney works for SD-6, knowing fully what it is they are about and do. Vaughn works for the CIA, who are now hell-bent on bringing down all the SD-cells. Syd and Vaughn meet each other and end up falling one another, but when both of their secrets are revealed, their love is put to test as their loyalties are divided.




Beep, beep, beep... Sydney Bristow groaned and rolled over, reaching for her alarm clock, and shutting it off. Six in the morning...wonderful. Sydney fought the urge to ignore the alarm and go back to sleep, pretending it was still Sunday, so she could sleep in. Sydney slowly, but surely, got up and jumped in the shower. She loved living in LA, but didn't love the fact that she was residing in a beautiful house on the beach, alone. Well, not totally alone. Her two best friends were also her neighbors. Will and Francie lived just next to her and Sydney felt comfortable that it worked out that way. Sydney would be playing the third wheel all the time if they lived together. Will and Francie had been dating for awhile, back when Sydney was dating. Which was such a long time ago, she though sighing. Not too long though, only a few months. Sydney jumped out of the shower, got dressed and fixed her hair. Caffeine, that's what I need, she thought. Sydney smiled as she headed out the door and to her favorite morning place in the world...

Beep, beep, beep... Michael Vaughn hit his hand on the alarm clock next to his bed, successfully ending the annoying chirp it made. He slowly crawled out of bed and into the shower. Monday was a day he did not look forward to. Going to work...working...going home spending the night alone, again. That was his weekdays. He quickly got dressed. Coffee, he thought happily, that's what I need. He grabbed his keys and smiled, heading to his favorite morning place in the world...

Starbucks was packed. It wasn't just the usual normal crowd, it was ten times that. Sydney tapped her foot impatiently and looked at her watch. Sloane is gonna kill me. But there was no turning back now, she was next in line and even though the person behind the counter was slow as ever, Sydney needed her coffee. She was craving it now. After the man in front her went, she rushed up to the counter and quickly ordered an iced coffee. She thought of flashing her badge and gun to make them move faster so she could leave, but it wasn't like she was a normal cop or anything. And she might get in trouble for doing so. Sydney waited again until it was made for her, paid for it and thanked them. She quickly turned around, in a rush and collided with someone walking towards the counter. "Oh god!" Sydney quickly turned around and grabbed some napkins. The man she'd bumped into sighed deeply, and slightly annoyed, staring at his now ruined suit. "I am so sorry," Sydney said. She looked up at the man and caught her words. God, he is gorgeous, she thought. She smiled, embarrassed. "I'm so sorry."

Michael looked at the woman who had split the coffee on him and smiled at her. God, she's so beautiful. "It's ok," he said. "At least it was cold."

She laughed nervously and looked at him. "Do you, uh...?"

Michael shook his head. "No, it's ok. I have some clothes in my car, it's fine really."

She nodded. "Ok." She glanced at her watch. "Oh felgercarb," she muttered. She quickly grabbed her empty cup and started to the door. "Wait," Michael called after her. But it was too late. She had already left. Michael smiled to himself.



Sydney quickly walked into Credit Dauphine and greeted all those around her. She rounded a corner and entered an elevator. The man looked at her, and smiled, then pressed the button, proceeding to the correct floor. Disguised as a bank, Credit Dauphine was really the headquarters of SD-6, on the SD branches. Her boss, Arvin Sloane, headed it. It was SD-6's sole objective to put an end to terrorism, by taking any means necessary, to do so. This meant Black-Ops tactics, and taking the weapons from those who cannot be trusted to withhold them...even the CIA. Sydney slipped into the briefing room quietly, but Sloane caught her, and stopped his discussion.

"Agent Bristow," he said, "Thank you for finally joining us."

"Sorry," Sydney said.

Sydney took her seat next to their tech op, Marshall Flinkman and Agent Lauren Reed. She sat across from her partner, Agent Julian Sark, who smiled at her.

"As I was saying," Sloane continued. "One of our operatives, Agent Samuel Smith, was caught and apprehended by the CIA."

"Did he talk?" Julian asked.

"Yes, he did. About SD-6. Not everything, just our name and few connections."

"What did he spill?" Sydney asked

"Our current objective," Sloane answered. "Rabmaldi, and our search for Nicolas Casanova."

"Can we expect the CIA to interfere with our mission?" Lauren asked.

"Yes we can, I guarantee that they will first go after Casanova and try to get more information from Smith. So, first, we get to Casanova. Julian, Sydney, you two will head to Nevada where he is being held in a safe house. Take him out. Lauren, I want you and Marshall to find a way into the CIA to take care of Smith. That is all."


Michael closed his truck in the garage under the CIA headquarters building. It wasn't the official one, it was only the one for California. He walked into the building, adjusting his coat. Michael's job was an important one. As an Agent of the CIA, it was his job to take down the bad guys, simply put. And one of the most dangerous ones, lied inside the SD-6 cell. As he walked into the briefing room, he saw Marcus Dixon, Jack Bristow and Eric Weiss already there. He sat next to best friend and fellow agent, Eric when Agent Kendall, the Director of the LA division, walked in.

"Ok," Kendall started. "Let me lay this out for you. SD-6, is a black ops division. They have always been one step ahead of us for the past few months. As you all know, we recently caught an Agent of SD-6, Samuel Smith. We expect within 24 hours, that he'll tell us everything he knows about SD-6, including who he worked for and along side of. Until then, our main concern is Nicolas Casanova. He is at a safe house in Nevada. Casanova can give us Intel on the SD cells and what they are looking for in regards to Rabamldi. We can also expect SD-6 to send agents, so Vaughn, Dixon, you two will go to Nevada and extract Casanova. Any questions?" Kendall looked at everyone, and with no response said, "All right, gear up."


Sydney walked out of the briefing room and made her way to Tech OP when Sark caught up with her.
"So..." he began, "You excited about the mission?"

Sydney looked at him, raising her eyebrow. "Should I be? It's like every other mission."

"Well, I just thought that since you and Smith had worked together..."

Sydney stopped and faced Julian. "He betrayed us...this country. That is all he is to me now...a traitor."

"I see."

"Good...I'll meet you at the airport."

Julian watched Sydney walk away. "I look forward to it."


Eric followed Michael out of the briefing room. "You all right?"

Michael looked at him. "Yeah, why?"

"You just seem more...glowy."

"Glowy? Is that even a word?"

"Well, you know..." Eric shrugged.

"I saw the most beautiful woman today," he said, thinking of the woman who split the coffee on him in Starbucks.

"Oh yeah?" Eric said. "What's her name?"

Michael shook his head. "I don't know."

Eric smirked. "You met a beautiful woman, and didn't get her name?"

Michael shrugged. "Yeah..."

Eric shook his head, smiling.

"What?" Michael said, defensively.

"Nothing. Forget it." Eric walked away.

"What?" Michael called after him

She knows they are not part of the CIA and SD-6 are black ops...but that's all. So Sydney views anyone that is connected with the CIA as an enemy (i.e. Michael Vaughn) ....see where I'm going with this? :P

Thanks and I will update ASAP...I have my graduation soon, so I don't know when I'll be able to update, but I'll try ;)

Sorry it took so long to update. After reading this past chapters, if you can't already tell, I'm not really a romantic writer. I hope it holds your interest a little though and you like it


Finally, Sydney thought. There was nothing like this in the world. Sydney could kill for this. Granted, she could kill for a lot more, and probably has, but this, this was something special. Something, like love. Like nothing she'd ever experience. Starbucks very own Mocha Latte. Ah!. Sydney sipped the drink and sighed, a lazy grin appearing on her face. She'd been craving this all day long, and now, hours before her OP, she had just enough time to enjoy her Starbuck R&R. Sydney paid for her drink and walked out of the building and to her car. "Hey."

Sydney turned to the sound of the voice and looked at the man shocked. "Hey," she managed. It was the same cute guy from the morning, the one she split her coffee on. Sydney looked at him. "I see you have changed."

Michael looked at his clothes and smiled. "Oh yeah, well I had too, otherwise the guys at the office would be asking me where there coffee was," he replied.

Sydney grinned. "We wouldn't want that." Michael continued to smile at her. Oh, he has the most beautiful smile, she thought. "So...you weren't following me, were you?"

"Oh, no. Actually, I decided to stop here before my business trip," Michael said. "You?"

"Oh, well, since your clothes preferred my drink this morning, I decided to stop and get what I have been craving all day..."

"Starbucks," Michael finished.

Sydney nodded. "Yep. It's the only thing that helps me deal with my boss."

Michael nodded, agreeing with her. "I understand. My boss is a tight-ass too."

Sydney chuckled. "So, you know then?"

"Do I ever?" Michael joked. He extended his hand and Sydney shook it. "My name is Michael. Michael Vaughn."

"Sydney."

Michael raised an eyebrow. "No last name?"

"Oh...you don't find that out unless we're dating."

"Really?" Michael inquired.

Sydney nodded. "Yep."

"Well then, remind me to ask you out."

Sydney blushed. "Michael Vaughn, you should ask me out."

Michael smiled sweetly at her. "When I get back," she added.

Ouch. "Oh...you, visiting...?"

Sydney smiled at him, knowing what he was fearing. "No boyfriend. It's...a business trip."

Michael nodded. "Ok, then, I'll keep a look out for you..."

"And ask me out." Sydney finished. "I look forward to it." Sydney smiled at him and walked over to car. She started the engine and pulled out, driving away with Michael watching her the whole time, smiling.

-----------------------

"So...how hot is he?" Francie was asking.

Sydney smiled over the phone. Julian was sitting across from Sydney, scowling at her drooling over a man, clearly jealous and disappointed, while Sydney was talking to her best friend over the phone. "On a scale of 1 to 10, a million!"

Julian shook his head, and went back to pretending to read his book.

"He is so sweet to, Francie."

"Really?" Francie asked. "Normally hot guys like that aren't so sweet and nice."

Sydney glanced at Julian and thought, Julian was sweet. Francie must have been thinking the same thing because Francie said, "Except your last boyfriend. Julian. He was hot, smart and sweet. How come...?"

Sydney sighed. Don't go there Francie. "It was just...complicated," Sydney said. Julian looked up from his book and at Sydney, as if knowing what she was saying.

He cleared his throat and stood up. "I'm going to see how much longer," he said, giving her privacy.

Without another word, he walked away. Sydney turned around and watched him walk away, feeling a pang of guilt. Her and Julian had dated only a couple months ago for about a year. But for Sydney, mixing work with pleasure wasn't really easy. Arvin Sloane never approved it and he thought of their relationship as an unnecessary risk. Their relationship was always doubtful to Sydney because of Sloane and Sydney's father, Jack. To add insult with the injury, Lauren Reed was always fond of Julian and jealous of Sydney and Julian's relationship. Now that they were no longer together, it gave Lauren all the room she needed with Julian, but Sydney wasn't sure if Julian shared that with Lauren. Julian was still very much in love with Sydney, and Sydney knew it. It made things that much more complicated for them. The love and friendship was still there, but Sydney wasn't into it as much as he was. Sydney sighed as all her thoughts of Julian ran through her mind. "I'll call you when I'm back in town, Francie."

"Ok," Francie sighed. "See ya."

Sydney hanged up, "Yeah." Sydney's good mood and thoughts about Michael Vaughn were now replaced with the dreaded thought of what Julian and Sydney meant to each other now.

---------------

"She is so beautiful and funny, and seems really smart," Michael said.

"'Seems'?" Dixon asked.

Michael shook his head. "I don't know her that well to answer that honestly."

"Oh right, you mean like...what's her name...Donna Wilson?" Eric said

Dixon laughed and Michael's smile faded. "Why do you have to bring her up?"

Eric started laughing. "You should have ended the date after learning her name. As if you didn't know."

"I didn't," Michael said.

Eric laughed at the memories of Donna.

Michael shook his head. "I'm going to ignore you now."

"How long did that relationship last?" Dixon asked

"Three weeks!" Eric laughed again. "Seriously dude, you're better off being alone and having twenty cats then another chick like that."


Michael narrowed his eyes at Eric. "She's not like that."

Eric nodded. "Ok. We'll, I gotta meet her."

Michael sighed. "Yeah...right."

Oh I loved it! Another meeting between them was perfect.

I loved that Julian gave her the privacy she would have needed to talk to her friend. It's really sad that they had to break up because of Sloane. He's a jackass. Julian seems really broken up about it. I would be too, if I had to work with a person that I loved, but couldn't be with. :(
