I just wrote this fanfic b/c I like to write and I wanted to test the waters and see if I could write one. I hope I've written a decent one for everyone's enjoyment. I hope you'll all give me some feedback. I'll post part of it now and once I get some feedback, I'll post the rest in separate posts. I'm sorry if it seems long, I'm a detailed person. I just wrote it with my own story line and there are some smiliarities to the show though. Thanks everyone. Copyright 2002 by Brian ----------- Sydney’s Fire It had been an exhausting mission over in France rescuing Vaughn’s CIA commanding officer. Sydney was on the plane back home to Francie and Will and was glad to be going home. She was just relaxing after seeing so much gunfire, which just rocked her brain from all of the noise. On the plane home, she reflected on how happy Vaughn was after witnessing her rescue his commanding officer. That thought made her smile. They still hadn’t yet talked about their feelings for each other, but they knew there was something there. Once she returned home, it was 4am and she was checking around the house to make sure nothing was disturbed and nothing was. She walked past Will and Francie’s rooms and saw that they were sound asleep. She walked into her room and collapsed onto her bed and fell asleep quickly. Not another thought went through her mind. It was mid-morning and Will had walked into Sydney’s room and saw that she was there and stood beside her bed when her phone rang. Sydney didn’t awake to it, but Will chose to leave it alone since Sydney couldn’t answer it and say, “good guys or bad guys.” Francie soon joined Will in the room and saw Sydney sleeping and said, “We should let her sleep until she wakes up. She’s probably exhausted from her banking trip to France.” Sydney awoke to the sound of Francie’s car coming back from the grocery store when she’d gone to buy some things for dinner. She checked her phone and saw that she missed a call. It was her father calling her and when she called him back, he told her she needed to get down to SD-6 as soon as she could. He had told her that two vials of hydrogen cyanide had been stolen. The hydrogen cyanide would be used as a main ingredient in a chemical weapon SD-6 was seeking. “How serious is it?” Sydney asked nervously. Jack replied, “Very serious. We don’t know when, but if SD-6 gets a hand on the cyanide, they will use it against the American people overseas and claim that a radical terrorist group made the attack. The American government will go after the group and not SD-6 specifically.” “That is really serious. Another reason why I’m so determined to bring down SD-6.” Sydney answered back calmly, but determined. “Meet me in a half an hour and we’ll discuss the mission and counter mission.” “Alright, I’ll be there,” Sydney said as she hung up the phone. “Hey Syd,” Francie said greedily as she walked back and fourth from the counter to the refrigerator putting groceries away. Will then came in and saw Sydney and poured her a glass of water. “Thanks Will,” she answered. “How was your trip?” asked Francie. “It went pretty well. It was quite exhausting though. All that running back and fourth between meetings tired me out. I’m glad to be home, but I can’t stay for too long.” “Why?” asked Will and Francie at the same time. “Oh, the bank wants me to go check up on these bounced checks that some people used to buy computers.” “Boy, they sure don’t let you stay home for long, Syd,” said Will. “Yeah, I know, but it’s part of my job and I have to do it if I wanna move up and get promoted.” Francie sighed, “We’ll sure miss having you home—again. How long will you be gone?” “Oh, probably not too long. Shouldn’t be too bad, just have to check some paper trails and stuff like that,” Sydney wryly smiled as she answered. “Guess you should be going then,” Will replied. “Yeah, I’ll catch something to eat on the way down to the office. I’ll see you guys later.” “Bye Syd, take care.” It was now 10pm and Sydney met up with Vaughn and Jack to talk about the mission in Germany. “Tell me about my missions,” she insisted to Vaughn who was happy to see her again. “Well, what we have planned is for you to go to the lap in Munich, Germany. Your cover will be as a scientist who is going to be testing the hydrogen cyanide to be sure it is what it is.” “Sounds simple enough,” responded Sydney as she listened to Vaughn. Jack cut in, “That’s not all of it,” and continued informing Sydney. “You will have to knock out the people inside, there should be about 4 or 5 people inside the lab, with a sedative dart gun, Marshall of course has specially made it for you. Then, you’ll grab the two vials of hydrogen cyanide and get out as quick as you can. Dixon, of course, will be waiting for you and he’ll expect you to have the two vials. We have made watered down hydrogen cyanide that you’ll give to him to give to SD-6 and the CIA will get the real vials.” “When do I leave?” “In ten minutes. The plane is ready to go,” said Vaughn. Jack walked out of the room and left Sydney and Vaughn to themselves. They just stared at each other, both knowing there was tension in the room. They even managed to smile at each other and said “goodbye” to another as Sydney walked out of the room for the plane.
