Life Is Sometimes Perfect by:Liliana Chapter 1 You see Sydney sitting on the couch in her apartment looking through the newspaper Vaughn comes out of the kitchen with two plates. He places one on the table beside her and then sits down beside her and grabs the sports section. She smiles at him and he smiles back she snuggles up to him and he puts his arm around her shoulders."So when are we having that dinner with your parents?"he asks. "Tomorrow night,” Sydney says. She snuggles more into his side and he smiles into her hair. She stares down the page and sees something interesting. It's a competition for a trip for seven people. She reaches over and picks up the phone. And dials the number."Sydney Bristow."She says her number and everything and then shuts the phone. Vaughn looks at her in surprise"what was that all about?"he asks. She looks at him"a trip to the Bahamas for seven,” she says. Vaughn nods and then kisses her on the forehead"when will you know?"he asks. "Tomorrow morning because I think we need a holiday,” she says. "I agree,” Vaughn says. He kisses her on the lips and then they go back to reading their newspapers. Then there comes a knock to the door Sydney groans. She gets up from her comfortable position and goes to the door. She opens it and there's Bridget and Eric she smiles at the two of them and they come in she takes their coats."Hey Mike,” Eric says. "Hey Eric Bridget,” he says. They come in and sit down and Sydney goes back to leaning against Vaughn but she's let the paper drop on the floor."So what brings you to this side of town?"Sydney asks. Eric and Bridget look at each other"can't we just come see you two because you're our friends?"Eric asks. "What do you what?"Vaughn asks looking at Eric. "We might as well tell them,” Eric says. Bridget nods and she smiles at Sydney"do you remember my sister Claire?"she asks. "Yes she was four years younger than you were she ran away from home when she was sixteen if I remember,” Sydney says. "Yes well she's come back to town mom doesn't want to deal with her she's apparently pregnant and doesn't know who the father is,” Bridget says."So mom wants us to go out with her tonight." "And you want us to come right?"Sydney asks. "If you would she use to adore you and Francie maybe get her and Will to come too?"she asks. Sydney nods her head"all right we'll come, “she says. They leave a while later after talking Sydney looks at Vaughn and he shakes his head she grabs the phone and dial’s Francie's number."Hi Francie it's Syd,” she says. They talked for more than a half an hour Vaughn looks at Sydney once she hangs up she snuggles into him."So tell me about Claire,” he says. Sydney looks at him surprise and then nods her head"well she's four years younger than Bridget while Bridget has brown hair Claire has blonde. They are complete opposites I mean it's pretty much like night and day. She was a great kid loved to play sports, loved to read books,” Sydney says. Then she sighs"then their parents got divorced and everything went to hell from there. She started drinking, taking drugs having unsafe sex. She ran away from home when she was sixteen." Vaughn shakes his head"sounds like a messed up girl,” he says. Sydney nods her head"she never use to be she loved to hang around with us and I remember when their parents did get divorced about six months later she called Bridget and asked her to come get her, “Sydney says."I went with her you have no idea the state she was in Vaughn she had been raped and everything it was horrible. We haven't seen her in nine years." Vaughn wraps his arms tighter around her and she cries into his shoulder she cries herself to sleep. That night you see her getting ready in front of the mirror Vaughn is behind her in a suit looking gorgeous as usual. Sydney stands up and has a red strappy dress on with her hair up in a french braid. He hands her, her bag and she smiles. They leave the house. *** You see them find a parking space at the restaurant and they go inside and are met by the host."Good evening sir ma'am,” he says."Name?" "Weiss,” Sydney says. "Ah yes three of you're party are already here,” he says. He leads them over to a table where Bridget, Eric and a girl are sitting. "Sydney so glad you could make it,” Bridget says smiling. "Good to be here,” Sydney says. The girl looks up at her and smiles she stands up"Sydney,” she says. She goes and hugs her"I've missed you." "I've missed you too Claire,” Sydney says. They hugged again and Claire looked Vaughn up and down"ooh who's this hunk?"she asks."Hi I'm Claire Thompson." Sydney grabs Vaughn's arm"this is Michael Vaughn my boyfriend,” Sydney says. They shake hands and Sydney gets them to sit down"Eric,” Vaughn says. "Michael,” he says."Syd." "Eric,” she says. She looks over at Bridget and goes to sit down beside her. "You'd better keep Vaughn away from my sister she's about ready to go for anyone,” Bridget says. Sydney nods and sees Claire start edging her way towards Vaughn Sydney goes back round the other side and sits down. Vaughn leans over"she scares me,” he whispers in her ear. "Mm don't worry she scares me too,” Sydney says. She captures his lips with hers and gives him a searing kiss"so are Francie and Will coming tonight?"Bridget asks. Sydney pulls away and glares at her"yes they are,” Sydney says. She looks at Claire who is now sitting beside her."So how far along are you?" Claire looks at her in surprise"six months,” she says.
