“Sydney’s Protector” Disclaimer: I don’t own any of these characters. Okay before you read the story you have to read “Heartbreak” my other story. There are some things that are explained in there that relate to this story. This is kind of a spin-off sort of thing. Also I don’t know the name of the agent that Weiss was flirting with in a double agent so she is named Agent ? I know it sounds stupid but oh well. If you do know her name than please tell me. This is a short story but I like it. Tell me what you think. Weiss walked up too Vaughn who was sitting at his desk typing a debrief. “Hey man” Weiss said “Hey” Vaughn said, not looking away at his computer “Do you want too go to the bar with me and Agent (Sorry I forgot her name, it’s the one that Weiss flirted with in a double agent, if anyone knows it please tell me.) “I thought she had a boyfriend?” Vaughn said “She did but then she broke up with him, probably just too be with me.” Weiss joked “Yeah man you’re just irresistible” Vaughn said joking “That means so much too me man.” Weiss said as he pretended to cry. “So are you in or not?” Weiss asked “I don’t know, let me call Syd and see if she wants to go. Then well meet you there at say, oh 6:00.” Vaughn said as he looked at his watch. “Okay, but were not going too wait for you two the whole night.” Weiss said smiling as he walked away. Vaughn dialed Sydney’s home number, no answer. Then he called her cell phone. “Hello?” Syd said “Hey, where are you?” Vaughn asked “Hey, oh I’m ah, I’m at your place, I hope you don’t mind but I wanted too get out of my house for a change.” Syd said “No, I’m glad your there, I told you too come over whenever you want.” Vaughn said “Thanks, so what’s up?” Syd asked “Weiss wanted too know if we wanted to go to the bar tonight.” Vaughn said “Sure, it sounds fun.” Syd said “Great, I’ll be home in a little while.” “Okay, I’m going to go and change at my house and then I’ll come back here.” Syd said “Okay, see you soon.” Vaughn said “Okay, Bye” Syd said as she hung up the phone. She grabbed her keys and ran out the door. “Hey, Sydney right?” Jim said “Yeah” Syd said “So you finally moved in huh?” Jim said smiling “No, No I just come over sometimes. I have my own place, in fact I’m going there right now.” “Oh, okay, well if you see Michael tell him I said hi.” Jim said “I will, take care of yourself.” Syd said as she got in her car. She drove to her house. When she got inside she ran too her closet and started to go through her clothes. She finally picked out a black v-neck, spiggetti strap top, then she picked out some dark blue jeans that fit her perfectly. She put on some makeup and doubled back to Vaughn’s house. She was surprised to see his car in the driveway she was only gone for a half-hour. She walked inside, standing in front of her was a shirtless Vaughn who had just gotten out of the shower. He was wearing some dark blue jeans. He turned around to see Sydney. He walked up to her and kissed her. They finally broke apart but she pulled him back in for another kiss this time it was long and sweet. Vaughn pulled back. “We have to go.” He said as he pulled a white shirt over his head. “If were late, I’ll never here the end of it.” He said as he kissed Sydney on the forehead. “Okay let’s go.” She said. The walked out and got into the car. As they drove to the bar they listened to rock music and talked. “Jim said hi.” Syd said “Jim? I’m surprised he even remembers you. He doesn’t even know his own address.” Vaughn joked “Hey, he’s a nice guy.” Syd said “I guess.” Vaughn said smiling. When they finally arrived at the bar they saw Weiss’s car parked out front, Vaughn parked next to it. They got out and walked to the door. Vaughn opened he door for Sydney. She smiled “Thanks” she said. They walked in and looked around. “MIKE!” Weiss yelled from the corner table. There’s no way you could miss him, the bar was pretty crowded and it was a little hard to move at first, but Vaughn took Sydney’s hand and led her through the crowd. They all greeted each other then sat down to talk. “Hey, I have an idea.” Weiss began “Great.” Vaughn said laughing “Hey, I have good ideas, I’ve saved your butt many times.” Weiss said “Yeah, but they were situations you got me into.” Vaughn said, everyone laughed. “Anyway, how about we play some pool, me and you against Sydney and agent ?” Weiss said “Oh great, its bad enough I have to see you every day, now I have to loose with you.” Vaughn laughed. “Yeah lets do it,” Syd said “Who ever losses buys the drinks the whole night.” “Well, I guess I should just buy them now.” Vaughn teased “Come on it will be fun.” Syd said as she nudged him a little. “Okay.” Vaughn said. They walked over to the pool table and started playing. Vaughn and Weiss were losing really badly. So bad, that Vaughn started to mess with Weiss because he knew they were going to lose anyway. (Jumping ahead to the last shot.) “Bristow lines up, it going to be a close one, she shoots, damn she makes it.” Weiss said “Weiss you should know by now that I’m used to working under pressure.” Syd said “Go get the drinks boys” Agent ? Said “What am I a dog now.” Weiss said as Vaughn pushed him up to the bar. “Come on.” Vaughn said Syd and Agent ? Sat down and began to talk. “So how long have you known Vaughn?” Agent ? asked “Almost two years, but I feel like I’ve known him forever.” Syd said starring at Vaughn. “You’re lucky, he seems like a great guy.” Agent ? said “I’ve never meet anyone like him before. He’s not like other guys. For along time he was the only one I could trust, that still may be the case. He’s gotten me through a lot. He has always been there for me. He’s like my anchor, he’s the only thing that keeps me grounded ” “He loves you, I can see it in his eyes, just the way he looks at you.” Agent ? said “I don’t know why.” Syd said “What do you mean?” Agent ? asked “My mother Irena Derevko, killed Vaughn’s father when he was only 8.” Syd said “I heard about that but I didn’t know it was Vaguhn’s dad.” Agent ? said in shock. “I don’t know how he even looks at me without thinking of my mother.” Syd said “Hey, you’re not your mother, you can’t take what she did and put it on yourself.” Agent ? said Just then two men approached them. “Hey ladies.” The tall blonde one said. He put his arm around Sydney “Sorry, but I’m taken.” Syd said scoohing away from the man. He moved with her. “Oh yeah by who?” He said “By me!” Vaughn said as he stood in front of the man. The man let out a laugh “This is your boyfriend? I can knock him out in 2 seconds.” He said looking at Vaughn. “Leave her alone.” Vaughn said with that protecting look in his eyes. “ Let’s get out of here.” The tall mans friend said “NO! This loser is going to have to make me.” The man got up and held his fists out ready to fight. “I’m not going to fight you.” Vaughn said “Oh, what’s wrong, scared you’re going to loose.” He said. The man took a punch at Vaughn but Vaughn moved. “Dean! Come on stop it.” The mans friend said. This got Syd’s attention Dean? She thought to herself, no It cant be, he did look like the Dean she knew in college, the same Dean that made fun of her and laughed at her. Syd was angry. She walked over to where Vaughn was holding Dean and punched Dean right in the face. “Do you even remember me?” she said “No.” he said “Sydney Bristow.” She said “Oh right the little nerd that speaks 6 languages.” He said She punched him again. “You a**hole.” She said. Vaughn pulled Sydney away from Dean. “Come on Syd, come on.” Vaughn said as he took her outside. Weiss and Agent ? Followed close behind. “We’re gonna go.” Vaughn said as he opened the passenger side door for Sydney. “Okay man see you later.” Weiss and Agent ? walked away. Vaughn got in the car. They drove to his house and went in. He threw his keys on the glass table. Sydney went and sat down on the couch. He sat next to her. He took her hand and saw it was bruised. “Let me get some ice.” He said as he got up and went to the freezer. He came back with a bag of crushed ice. He held it on her knuckles. “Did that feel good.” He asked “You have know idea, he was such an a**hole.” She said, “I’m sorry.” He brushed a piece of hair out of her face. “For what?” “For back there.” She said “Hey, I was about to do the same thing. Besides it embarrassed the hell out of him.” He said smiling “Yeah I guess.” She said as she got lost in his beautiful green eyes. She leaned her head on his shoulder. They fell asleep a few minutes later. Vaughn was lying on the couch with Sydney resting on top of him, her head tucked between his neck and shoulder. THE END!!! Tell me what you think.
