    hehe..okay alias elle....i changed the name!! ^_^ ...well...heres the first chap...and the second one....

    ~Chapter 1~

    I looked down at his face. He looked at me with a stare that made me feel as if he was looking straight through my soul. I had to look away. Those perfect green eyes made me want to cry.
    “Syd?” he asked me softly.
    I couldn’t even look at him when I talked. I tried to focus on my shoes. “Wow,” I said simply.
    He now stood up and put his hand under my chin and raised my face so that I could look directly at him. “Syd?” he asked again.
    I started to cry gently. “Oh Michael,” I said softly as tears of joy streamed down my cheek.
    “Yes?” he said hopefully. He reached over and wiped a tear.
    My face broke out into a smile. “Of course I will marry you, Michael. Of course.”

    I sat up in bed, and sighed deeply. A dream. It was a dream. No. Wait. It wasn’t a dream. I only wished it had been a dream. Only, I knew it was a memory. A very old memory...
    I glanced sleepily at my alarm clock. It read 5:23. It was still dark outside. I turned off the clock’s alarm and walked into the kitchen. I poured myself a cup of yesterday’s, now-cold coffee. I sat at the table and drank in silence.

    ~Chapter 2~

    I must have fallen asleep at the kitchen table, since when I woke up again, sun was filtering through the windows. I got up and poured the leftover coffee into the sink, and sat back down at the table. There was no work today. It was a Sunday.
    I thought for a moment of all the possibilities a day off could bring – a jog in the park, a day at the beach, a shopping spree. None of these options appealed to me. I sat back in my chair. Why had things turned out the way they did. What if things had worked out between Michael and I. What happened between us?
    I started to remember…

    (flashback to about four years ago)

    I sat in the chair in my office at the CIA. Michael approached me nervously.
    “Hey Syd,” he said, smiling sheepishly.
    “Hey,” I said, returning the smile. He kissed me on the cheek.
    “I need to tell you something,” Michael said, holding my hands tight. I could feel his palms getting sweaty.
    “What is it?” I asked with a worried expression on my face.
    “We’ve been married for almost a year now. Right, Sydney?” Michael started.
    “Right,” I replied.
    “You must understand that I love you,” Michael said.
    “I love you too, Michael. What is it?” I asked. Now I was concerned.
    “The CIA offered me a job in New York. I have a choice if I want to go or not, of course, but Sydney, I really want to go. I really want you to come with me,” Michael said.
    I was speechless. Nothing could prepare me for what he had just said.
    “Syd?” he asked.
    “Um, come with you?” I asked.
    “Yes, Sydney. Come with me. To New York. We’ll spend the rest of our lives there together,” Michael said. He looked sincerely at me.
    “Do I have time to think about this?” I asked.
    “I leave tomorrow. Early in the morning, actually. You’ll come with me won’t you?” Michael asked. He looked at me with his deep, green eyes.
    I couldn’t speak. Instead, I just shook my head.
    “What? Syd? You have to come. We’re married, Syd,” Michael pleaded.
    “No, Michael,” I said forcefully, “If you have a choice, then stay here. I’m not going. And if you go, then I don’t want to be married to you anymore.”
    Michael looked hurt. “You don’t mean that, Sydney. You don’t.”
    “I do mean it Michael. I would be giving up so much to leave here,” I replied selfishly.
    “Don’t you think I would miss everyone and everything too?” Michael said.
    “I won’t leave Michael. I’m not coming with you,” I said.
    “Okay,” Michael said. He frowned but took off his wedding ring and laid it on my desk. “Good bye, Sydney.” He walked slowly away from my office. I didn’t follow him. I was so sure he would come back to me.
    (end flash back)

    Tears were rolling down my cheeks. “But he didn’t come back, did he?” I said to myself. I wiped my tears, but the pain of remembrance didn’t go away. ( :( )

    Hope you all like it!!!! plz tell me what you think!!

    awww!! That's so cute!! (eep!! did I use cute again?! *smack smack*) I don't know who was being selfish, Vaughn because he was going and wanted Sydney to come with him even though he said he had a choice, or Sydney for not going with him because she was afraid to leave what she had behind...Wait a minute, neither were selfish! This is a great story, keep it up and post some more soon!

    awww...dont cry...well here's a very VERY short chapter....

    ~Chapter 3~

    (a year later)

    The sound of my doorbell ringing rang throughout my house. I was already late for work. I ran quickly down the stairs as the doorbell rang again. Who could that be? I ran to the front door and opened it. The mug of coffee I was holding in my hand dropped to the ground and shattered.
    “Hello Sydney,” Michael Vaughn said from the doorway.

    hehe...okay...here's a longer chap....

    ~Chapter 4~

    I stood there without saying a word. It was as if I had just seen a ghost.
    “May I come in?” Michael asked. I didn’t move. I just walked to the living and took a seat on the couch, completely forgetting that I was late for work. My hands were shaking. Michael followed me and sat down next to me. There was a very long silence.
    Michael was the one who broke the silence. “How are you?” he asked quietly.
    I wanted to shout, “HOW AM I?!?!? HOW AM I, YOU ASK? YOU LEAVE ME FIVE YEARS AGO AND ALL OF A SUDDEN APPEAR AT MY DOOR AND ASK ME HOW AM I!” Instead I softly replied, “Fine.”
    “Good,” Michael said. Another awkward silence followed.
    “So, um, I need to get to work. I’m already late. You can stay here if you want to until I come back. I get home at around five,” I said. I got up slowly.
    Michael stayed seated on the couch. “Thanks. I guess I will stay here,” he said. I looked into his eyes, like I had done so many times before.
    “Okay,” I said simply and headed for the front door, “Where are you staying?”
    “Fairmont Hotel,” Michael said. I turned to leave. “Hey, Sydney?” Michael said suddenly.
    I stopped and turned around. “What?”
    “Do you still work at the CIA?” he asked me.
    “No. Quit a while back. I’m an English teacher at the local high school,” I replied. I walked out the door and closed it, feeling frustrated, sad, angry, and, yet, hopeful all at the same time.
