I did not write this fic - it was submitted to me a long time ago by Amanda. In fact, it took place a long time ago last season. I'm in the process of bringing a lot of old fics from the old forums here to the new forums. Sydney and Vaughn FanFic: “In A Web That Is My Own, I Begin Again” -Stevie Nicks Amanda Forbes Vaughn_Sydney@alias-online.zzn.com It contains spoilers, as I should warn. Made on August 12, 2002 finished at 4:47 p.m. Summary: So shall it begin again. Nothing belongs to me but this script. Sydney eyes are burning her she feels like hell. She looks at her surroundings sees a gray putrid room no decorations and a woman looking at her like something was bothering her. When Sydney finally got her eyes focused she realized that it was her mom. She mainly looked the same as Sydney always thought she would look like when she grew older, her hair was the same old chestnut brown but pulled back in a bun that made her look stern. Her eyes looked puffy and red as if she had been crying. Sydney did think would have been possible it was her fault but like she said it been almost thirty years, more or less. “Sydney, are you awake yet? ”, her mother stated. Lifeless and full of regret and sorrow Sydney replied that she was. She wondered if Vaughn died or if he lived. Guys should never be near her she thought. “Sydney, you must answer, and if you are wondering about Vaughn… he is alive, …barely. Even though I think you are wondering about him I don’t think you should, I have something I should tell you about your father and me”. Laura said. “What are you talking about, where is he? ” Sydney replied curiosity lurking. “He is now in surgery--.” Laura says but is cut in by Sydney. Sydney: What, bring him to me. Laura: I can’t do that. Sydney: Why the hell not, you -----? Laura walks up to her and slaps her face. Laura: Don’t you ever that type of language in my presence ever again! Laura: Because it is in your genetics to fall in love with his breed. Sydney: What are you talking about? I am not in love with him. Laura: You don’t everything about our past as you think. Sydney: You don’t know me. Laura: Oh yes I do. I know everything about you. Your friends, relations, lovers, and love interests. You have loved him for quite a while now, as he you. He has been questioned as your handler many times. Sydney, honey you can’t hide love. I should know. I loved his father as much you two love each other. Except when Khasinau found out he ordered me to kill him. Sydney: But I thought you were “the man”, I thought you were his boss? Laura: We all have someone higher, someone we care about; he threatened that he would tell your father. I killed him as requested but the CIA was on to me. That is why I had to stage my death so you and your father wouldn’t be hurt. I figured if I was to be dead then you shouldn’t worry what happened in the past. But surprise, surprise! As if it would have worked in the first place. God, I was so stupid for trying something like that. She hesitates. I think I should let you think about it and maybe discuss it with Vaughn; I will let you see him now. Over thirty minutes had passed when Khasinau entered the room pushing Vaughn in his wheel chair. Dazed and confused Sydney ran to Vaughn hugging him tightly. Vaughn screams saying that he has a sharp pain in his chest. Khasinau eyed them curiously when Sydney ripped open his shirt to see what they did to him. It was a big bruise with stitches in the middle of it. The colors dark and many to count. When she noticed that Vaughn was shivering she closed his shirt but wish she could keep it off for a little longer. She hugged him again. And kissed him on the cheek. Sydney asked Khasinau if he would leave. He left not wanting to, leaving the paper he had behind. Sydney started to hug him more. She kept on kissing him and they started to grow more intense! Jack ran in caught them on the floor. Sydney still in shock started to make excuses. Jack just stood there watching them get up with sadness in his eyes. Vaughn: It was my entire fault, I got so excited that she wasn’t killed that I just came in here and kissed her. Jack breathless leaned against the wall setting an alarm off with Laura coming in to see her ex husband standing right in front of her face. Sydney looks at her Mom and introduces Vaughn to her mother as the woman who killed his father. ~*****~ End of Chapter1 I hope you liked it. I am not the best writer in the world as you can plainly understand but I do not expect anything other than a kind word as to suggestions or comments that you can’t help to get off your chest.
