    Life Is Sometimes Perfect

    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.

    Sydney nods her head and smiles"a new life is a beautiful thing,” she says.

    "That it is,” Claire says."So are you and Michael going to have kids?"

    Vaughn nearly choked on his water Sydney rubbed his back when he started coughing he looks at her with thanks in his eyes.

    She smiles and returns her hand to his leg"we haven't talked about it we aren't even engaged yet,” Sydney says.

    "You're not,” Claire says. Sydney shakes her head"oh thought you would have been."

    Francie and Will came over and Claire stood up and hugged them both Sydney looks over at Bridget and shakes her head.

    A while later they were just sitting there they had, had the main meal and were now just talking. The music started and you saw couples getting up and going onto the dance floor. Vaughn noticed this. He looks at Sydney and kisses her."Would you like to dance?"he asks.

    She looks at him and smiles"yes,” she says.

    He takes her hand and they go to the dance floor it was a slow song he wraps his arms around her waist and she wraps hers around his neck."You look beautiful tonight,” he says.

    She smiles at him"you look quite gorgeous yourself Mr.Vaughn,” she says.

    He leans down and kisses her"what do you say we leave?"he asks.

    She nods her head and he smiles they go back to the table and say their good nights and leave. They get home and fall into bed.


    The next morning you see them tangled up in the sheets the phone rings by Sydney's head and she picks it up."Hello,” she says.

    "Hi is this Sydney Bristow?"the man asks.

    "Yes this is she,” Sydney says.

    "I would like to congratulate you on winning the seven tickets for the cruise on the cruise boat The Princess to the Bahamas,” the man says.

    "Aaah you're joking that's so great thankyou,” she says. She puts the phone down after getting the details. Michael wakes up and looks at her.

    "What's wrong?"he asks.

    "I won the tickets,” she says."For the cruise to the Bahamas."

    He looks at her with a smile on his face and he hugs her....

    Fluff is great and I love it. The beginning just cracked me up, only because I could never see Syd calling in to try and win a contest. lol I have no idea why it's so funny! And of course, Bridget is the best, b/c we all know how much I love that name! ;)

    Life Is Sometimes Perfect

    Chapter 2

    You see Sydney in the kitchen making breakfast when Vaughn comes out of the room he smiles at her and she smiles back.He sits down at the kitchen table"so when do we leave on this cruise?"he asks.

    She looks at him and sets a plate of pancakes down in front of him he smiles"we leave in exactly two weeks,"Sydney says.

    He nods his head"so who's going with us?"Vaughn asks.

    Sydney looks over at him and smiles"what makes you think you're coming along?"she asks teasingly.

    He takes her in his arms"would you be able to live without me on that cruise?"he asks.

    She thought about it and shakes her head"no,"she says."Well I thought about taking you,Francie,Will,Eric,Bridget and I don't know who will be the seventh."

    He nods his head and lets her up"it will probably be Claire hey?"he asks.

    Sydney looks at him from where she's standing at the sink"why do you say that?"she asks.

    Vaughn looks at her and he tilts his head to the side and she just smiles"okay I was thinking about taking her nobody wants her around anyway,"Sydney says.

    He nods and then the phone rings and Vaughn picks it up"hello,"he says.

    "Hi Michael it's Francie can I please talk to Syd?"she asks.

    "Sure here she is,"he says."For you."He hands Sydney the phone and she puts it to her ear.

    "Hi Francie,"she says.

    "So did you win the tickets?"she asks.

    "Yes,"Sydney says."We leave in two weeks today."

    "Oh goody you,Bridget and I must go shopping,"Francie says.

    Sydney smiles at Vaughn and then shakes her head he smiles back at her and she goes over and he puts his arm around her waist.She leans her head on his shoulder.

    "You okay?"he asks.

    She nods her head and he kisses her on the forehead"all right Francie I'll phone Bridget now,"Sydney says.

    "Great bye,"Francie says.

    Sydney shakes her head"bye,"Sydney says.She shuts the phone and looks at Michael and then dials Bridget's number."Hi Eric it's Syd can I please speak to Bridget."

    "Sure,"he says.

    "Hi Syd,"Bridget says.

    "Hey I won those tickets on that cruise and Francie wants us to go shopping with her today,"Sydney says."You and Claire since she's coming."

    "All right,"Bridget says laughing."I'll see you two later at the mall at 1."

    "All right,"Sydney says.She shuts the phone and looks at Vaughn"how did I end up with such weird friends?"

    He shrugs.


    A while later you see Bridget,Sydney,Francie and Claire at the mall they are looking around for clothes and whatever and already have quite a few bags."So where too now?"Bridget asks.

    "The swimsuit shop I need a new one,"Sydney says.

    They headed in that direction and went into the shop Sydney went around looking and found the perfect bikini."Wow you do want to keep Vaughn alive right?"Bridget asks.

    "Yes,"Sydney says smiling.She walks over to the counter and buys the bikini and then they leave the shop."So where too now?"

    "How about lunch?"Claire asks.

    They all nod their heads and they find a nice little restaurant and they order their food and drinks.Claire looks at all of them sitting in silence."So what have you all got planned for this weekend?"she asks.

    "Nothing,"they all say.

    She nods and then they start talking about the cruise and Claire is watching whatever Sydney is doing.Then Syd's cell phone rings"hello,"she says.

    "Hey Syd it's Vaughn,"he says.

    "Hey you,"she says.

    You see him smile"you're mother called earlier she and your dad are coming over at 6 instead of 7,"he says.

    "Okay I'll finish up here and come home,"Sydney says.

    "All right see you in a little while,"Vaughn says."I love you."

    "I love you too,"she says.

    She shuts her phone and smiles at everyone"and what was that all about?"Bridget asks.

    Sydney looks at her"my parents are coming over earlier that's all,"Sydney says.

    "Oh,"they says.

    Then you see Sydney get home and opens the door Eric is sitting in the kitchen she smiles and Bridget follows her in and shuts the door.

    "Hey Eric,"Sydney says.

    "Hey Syd,"he says."Hi honey."

    "Hi Eric,"Bridget says.

    She kisses him and Sydney goes over and puts her arms around Michael's waist"are you okay?"she asks.

    "Yes why wouldn't I be?"he asks.

    "No you just look worried,"she says.

    He turns around and wraps his arms around her and smiles he strokes her hair away from her face."I'm okay,"he says.

    "Good,"she says.

    He looks around for her bags"buy anything interesting?"he asks.

    "You'll just have to wait and see,"she says.

    The doorbell rang and she went to get it she opens it to find Jack and Irina standing there she smiles at the two of them."Hello daddy mom,"she says.

    "Sydney,"Irina says.She hugs her daughter and so does Jack.

    They come into the house and see Bridget setting the table and Eric sitting there talking to Michael."Hi Jack hi Irina,"Michael says.

    "Vaughn,"Jack says.

    "Michael,"Irina says.

    They all look at each other and smile.


    Two weeks later you see them at the docks there's a beautiful big cruise ship docked and you see people going onboard and people saying goodbye.

    Irina and Jack are there to see them all off"so do you all have everything you need?"Jack asks.

    "Yes dad,"Sydney says.

    She hugs him tightly and then hugs her mother"we'll be fine you'll see us in a couple of weeks,"Sydney says.

    Everybody says goodbye to each other and then they all head onboard"do you think they'll be okay?"Jack asks.

    Irina looks at him and puts her around him"yes they'll be fine,"she says.

    Then you see some guys going onboard they show the people on board their tickets and come on and you see them in their cabins.One man takes out a gun and a few others take out explosives."When do we go ahead?"one of the men ask.

    "Two days from now,"the leader says.

    Back to Jack and Irina"what could possibly go wrong,"Irina says.

    Jack looks at her and smiles she smiles back you see Sydney and Vaughn in their cabin checking the place out."Come on I think the ship's about to leave we'd better go wave,"Vaughn says.

    "Right,"Sydney says.They leave the room and are met by the others they go up on deck and as the boat starts moving they all wave at Jack and Irina."I think this will be a fantastic vacation."

    Vaughn smiles at her and she smiles back"I agree with you,"he says."I think this is all we need no CIA,no nothing."

    She nods her head you see them head away from the rail one of the men from the group with the guns watches them go.He heads over to the leader."What's wrong?"the leader asks.

    The man leans over"we have CIA agents onboard,"he says.

    "Who?"the leader asks.

    "Those two over there,"the man says.

    The leader nods and sees Vaughn and Sydney"all right they'll be no problem,"he says.

    To be continued....
