    Title: Angel Standing By
    Author: btvaughn
    Disclaimer: I don’t own any part or thing of Alias.
    Rating: PG
    Genre: Just plain old S/V romance…not really fluff, but happy stuff in the end!
    Summary: This takes place before Phase One. SD-6 has been taken down in some other fashion than that episode. Sydney and Vaughn have not gotten together….yet.

    I know it has no plot…there really isn’t one! It’s just a one-parter.

    This little fic is dedicated to neumy. Thank-you for wanting to read my story! The lady in waiting always tries to please the queen!

    The italics are Syd’s thoughts.
    The bold words are lines from two different poems (I don’t know who wrote them!)

    Walking down the empty beach alongside the water, Sydney Bristow took a deep breath. Looking ahead of her, she found a boulder lying along the edge of the sand. Sitting down on it, she pulled her knees into her chest. As the wind whipped across the beach, she felt a cold stinging on her face. Tears.
    When was the last time I ever cried? I can’t believe this, but I’ve never felt so lost and alone before. Why did Vaughn have to have a girlfriend? I know I’d love him more than Alice. Right when we destroyed SD-6 and could have had a true relationship, he had to make up with her. The only person I’ve ever felt so much love for is gone from my life.

    Oh she’s nice, she’s kind
    Innocent too.
    She’s probably pretty
    The right one for you,
    So just forget me:
    I’m only a friend
    Though I’ll be with You
    Until the end

    Two weeks earlier
    Meeting at the warehouse, Sydney and Vaughn looked at one another.
    “I’m not sure why I called you Vaughn,” Sydney began to say. “I guess it just seemed natural to meet here.”
    Grinning, Vaughn laughed, “I think so too. We went over counter missions so many times inside these bars and boxes that I can only associate you with them.” Is that all I am to you, a meeting? I met because I wanted to tell you I love you, but I guess you don’t feel the same way.Forcing a smile, Sydney replied, “I wanted to be able to say goodbye to you in a comfortable place. The one we knew the best.”
    “Yeah, I heard you were leaving the CIA. Are you sure you want to?” Vaughn asked
    Nodding, Sydney said, “Definitely. I just want to live a normal life.” Walking over, Sydney wrapped Vaughn in a tight embrace. If only you felt the same way. “I guess this is goodbye…” Turning quickly away, Sydney rushed out of the warehouse and away from Vaughn, forever. Come after me Vaughn!
    Once in her car, Sydney looked towards the door to the warehouse. He wasn’t following after her. Driving off, Sydney whispered for one last time, “Goodbye, Vaughn.”
    Flashback ends

    All through the night
    I’ll be standing over you
    All through the night
    I’ll be watching over you

    Looking up into the gray skies of the November day, Sydney realized how much it mirrored her own feelings. Dark, depressed, and lonely. When was the last time I ever felt this way?
    Feeling a new wave of grief course through her body, Sydney’s body shook with silent sobs. Vaughn! Vaughn! Vaughn! I love you so much… Wiping her tear-rimmed eyes with her long sleeved shirt, Sydney took a breath and prepared to leave. My life, my reason, my heart, and my soul are gone. I’m alone, once again….

    And through the bad dreams
    I’ll be right there
    Baby holding your hand,
    Telling you everything is all right

    “Sydney?” a voice asked from behind her. A voice she knew so well. The voice she dreamed of hearing every night. Please be real, please be there.
    Turning around slowly, Sydney silently mouthed, “Vaughn?”

    And when you cry
    I’ll be right there
    Telling you were never
    Anything less than beautiful

    Nodding his head, Michael Vaughn spread a small smile across his face. “Hey.” Feeling a fresh wave of tears slide down her cheek, Sydney flew into Vaughn’s outstretched arms.
    “I’m so sorry, Sydney,” Vaughn started to say. “I never should have let you walk out of the warehouse and out of my life that day. I think I was too scared that you didn’t feel the same way.”
    “Oh, Vaughn,” Sydney tried to cut in.
    Putting a finger to her lips, Vaughn said, “Let me finish. I went back to Alice after that. We stayed together for about a day more, but nothing was ever there. You can’t stay with a person, when you’re in love with someone else. But I didn’t come to you right away, and I’m so sorry for that. I didn’t know what I’d do if you didn’t love me in return. But only today, I realized I didn’t care. I needed to know how you felt.”
    Wiping away Sydney’s tears, Vaughn continued,"I loved you so much then, and I love you even more now. Please tell me you feel the same way."
    Placing her hand on his cheek, Sydney looked up into his green eyes. “Vaughn, I love you so much. No words could ever begin to describe the hell I went through these past few days without you. Today, I completely lost it. I missed you so much, I didn’t think I could make it in any longer.” Feeling her voice choke up, Sydney tried to finish,” But then you came, and told me you loved me. I could breath all over again.”
    “Oh, God, Syd. Why didn’t I go after you that day? If only I would have trusted my heart. But now you know…I love you more than life itself.” Vaughn whispered.
    “Vaughn, thank-you for coming back. I love you more than you’ll ever know,” Sydney breathed back.
    Lifting her chin up, Sydney met her lips with Vaughn for the first time. Feeling the heat of their love sear through her lips, body, and heart, she could only think of one thing,
    My guardian angel has returned.

    So don’t worry
    I’m your Angel standing by

    Thank-you to everyone who reviewed. It means eveything to see that people care enough to read (considering how many fics are out there!). I didn't think I'd ever write another after my first, but all of your confidence to me is incredible. And I truly had no idea the story would make people cry! I'm planning to write another one soon, but that's really angsty....and then maybe a fluffy one to even it all out.
    Thank-you to each and everyone of you:
    aliasgirl000~I'm glad you liked it, but I wasn't going to write any more!
    kleverkitten~ I didn't mean to make you cry!
    alias....~(You know how long it is!) I'm so glad you used wooo...definitely a great word! ;)
    aliasfreelancer~ I'm so glad you like my fics, that truly means a lot!
    spysurfer...~Thank-you so much for reviewing, I'm glad you liked it!
    Siricerasi~Thank-you for reviewing...but no I'm feeling bad for all these sniffs!
    aliaselle~What can I say? Your words meant a lot to me, I tried my hardest to please all.
    aliaschick4mv~I love all these awww's!
    14year....~Sweet and cute...I always aim to please!
    spywoolf~I'm so glad to renew faith in one-parters again. I love that you feel that way!

    lol.... As much as I'd love to, I'm not sure exactly what I could have happen to them. It would turn into my attempt at fluff, something only neumy wins at!
