    hi everyone here it is again this wonderful story that was deleted

    Tears slipped down her face.

    “Two year?” she whispered. Vaughn was silent, his head was hanging, his eyes were to the floor not being able to look at her.

    “Why? Why can’t I remember anything?”

    “What?” he asked.

    “Two years. I can’t remember anything. It can’t be Two years! Two days maybe! Not two YEARS!”



    “Sydney.” he said softly.

    “Why?” her breath began to shallow. “I can’t…” tears were coming faster now, her breath getting shallower by the second. Vaughn couldn’t stand watching the love of his life hurting like that. He did the only thing he could and that was to go and give her a hug.

    “Syd.” he said, putting his arms around her.

    “Why. Are. You. Wearing. That. Ring?” she said slowly, her mind clouded with fear and doubt.

    “Sydney you were missing for two years.”

    “You’re right, I’m sorry, you have the right to move on.” Suddenly the wall that took two years to knock down was back up again. Only this time it wasn’t made of brick. It was made of steel.


    “STOP!” she suddenly yelled out. Vaughn just looked hopelessly at her. “Stop calling me Syd.” she finished in a whisper.

    Vaughn's eyes were filled with tears as Sydney tried to hide herself in her little world.

    "Who is she?"she asks quietly.

    He looks up at her in surprise"excuse me?"he asks.

    Sydney stares him straight in the face for the first time in ages."I asked who is she?"she asks again.

    He stares down at the ground again"WHO IS SHE VAUGHN!"

    Vaughn looks at her in shock"it's Alice."

    Sydney looks at him in pain and disbelief"Alice,"she says.

    He nods his head and hangs it down"you must realize Syd it's been two years."

    She stands and he tries to take her hand but she glares."Don't touch me,"she says.He brings his hand back as though he had just been burned.When he looks at her again she has her back turned to him.But he can tell by her body language that she's upset.

    He brushed his hair back with his hand"I don't know what to say Syd."

    She tenses up and you hear a sob escape her you see her face tears are streaming down it."Tell me this is all a dream tell me when I wake up I'll be okay,that Francie is alive and that you still love me.And that it isn't two years just a few days."

    You see a tear roll down Vaughn's cheek he wipes it away."I wish I could tell you that but it's not the truth."

    Sydney turns back to him"did you even look for me?"

    That made him look up with anger on his face.Pain and then anger pass through his eyes and on his face.He stands up."How can you even ask me that?"

    She glares at him"I've lost two years of my life Vaughn.Do you know what its like to remember me killing my best friend just a few hours ago and finding out its been two years?"

    He looks angry"you are questioning that I never loved you."

    She looks away from his angry face"how long?"she asks.

    He looks over at her shocked"how long what?"

    She looks away and is staring at the wall she's gone back to her cold stance."How long did you look for me before going back to her."

    He went over to her and grabbed her and turned her around"don't you dare."

    She pulls back from him and glares at him you see her face she's upset and angry."I SAID DON'T TOUCH ME!"

    He lets go and she takes a step away from him then goes over and sits down she puts her head in her hands.

    Vaughn shakes his head he sits across from her and watches her he takes a deep breath.He looks down and shakes his head again.The anger is gone but the pan is still there."Please look at me."

    She shakes her head and keeps where she is he looks down sadly and smiles slightly."You are still as stubborn as ever."

    That makes her look at him and glare even more."Syd I--the first year was hell you were gone the woman I loved was gone.I couldn't take it.I almost killed myself a couple of times.You were a big part of my life and then you were gone."

    Sydney looks at him with still anger and pain on her face there was also some sorrow there."I'm sorry you had to go through that."

    He looks at her"Alice and I got married last week we were on our honeymoon when I got called here,"he says."If I had known you were alive it wouldn't have happened."

    She shakes her head and a few more tears slip down her face and she stares back down at the floor."I wish I could remember the last two years."

    Vaughn nods"I'm happy with Alice."

    That makes her head snap up and she gets up again"don't you dare try to soften me up and then tell me that."

    Vaughn stands up"I gave everything for you I loved you,I was there for you,"he says.He sees the pain in her eyes"and these last two years have been hard without you after I said I was back with Alice Eric wouldn't even talk to me."

    Sydney walks away"good,"she says."When are we going back to LA?"

    Vaughn looks over at her"an hour,"he says."You should get some rest."

    She nods and she leaves.He watches her go and then walks out and slams the door you see Sydney in the bedroom she goes over to the bed and starts crying.

    Chapter 2

    You see Vaughn in the next room on the phone"yes Jack I've got her,"he says.He looks over at the door to see if anyone is listening."She doesn't look so good."

    "Mr.Vaughn she's been gone two years,"Jack says.

    Vaughn gets a strange look over his face"you know I don't have to be told that I have been blaming myself these last two years she was gone I love her Jack even now

    "So why did you marry someone else?"Jack asks.

    Vaughn's face turns into a scowl and he puts the phone down.He looks down at the floor and shakes his head.He goes over and sits down on a couch. He look over at the door which he had slammed shut just fifteen minutes ago.

    How did this all become such a mess if I had just gone into the house with her and backed her up then two years wouldn't have passed until I saw her again. I will always regret that. You see him shake his head.

    He checks his watch and then goes into the room"Syd,"
    he says.

    You see her in the bedroom she's sitting in a chair she has calmed down but you can see that her face is still tear stained."Yes Vaughn,"she says.

    Vaughn hear's the strain in her voice"can I please come in?"he asks.She looks at the door and goes over to the bathroom.She turns the tap on.She splashes her face with water.

    Vaughn looks at the door"Syd,"he says.He contemplates opening the door and going in but then thinks against it.He goes back to the couch and sits down."What a mess."His face is filled with pain and tears are welling in his eyes.Then the door opens and Sydney comes out looking better than she did.He looks at her.

    "Sorry I was in the bathroom,"Sydney says.He nods his head and stares into those eyes that the first time he saw them he fall in love.How could everything have gone so wrong.He knows that answer they came together to take down SD-6 and when they did he thought they would be free.But that was not the case Sloane was still able to destroy their lives.

    "Vaughn,"Sydney says.He looks up at the sound of her voice.She doesn't look angry at him but he can tell she doesn't want to be in his presence anymore."Are we going?"

    He shakes his head and snaps out of his reverie"yes,"
    he says.

    Sorry guys I have to go the rest will be up later I promise.
